President Biden was recently asked about the allegations surrounding his conversations with a Burisma executive who claims to have paid him a bribe while he was serving as the Vice President.
The reporter from the New York Post who asked the question was met with what appeared to be a laugh from the President, which did not sit well with his critics online.
As Biden made his way down the hall after the event, the Post reporter asked, “Are there tapes that you accepted bribes, President Biden? Is that true?”
Although the President shook his head with a smile and continued walking, the video of his reaction has sparked criticism from many who view it as a dismissive and inappropriate response.
The allegations stem from claims made by a Burisma executive who allegedly paid the Biden family $5 million dollars, and has recorded conversations with the family to prove it.
Senator Chuck Grassley has confirmed the existence of the audio recordings, which are believed to involve conversations between the Bidens and the Burisma executive.
Biden has faced scrutiny for his actions during his time as Vice President under Barack Obama. A whistleblower came forward in 2020 to say that the FBI had a document indicating that Biden was involved in criminal bribery scheme with a foreign national.
The House Oversight Committee has been investigating these allegations.
Despite the allegations, the White House has maintained that President Biden has never been involved in his son’s business dealings and has never discussed them with him.
The President himself has dismissed the claims as “a bunch of malarkey” in a statement.
Many online have criticized Biden’s reaction to the question, citing what they view as hypocrisy from the media regarding their treatment of allegations against him versus their treatment of the alleged Russia collusion hoax.
Despite this criticism, it remains to be seen whether the allegations against Biden have any merit.
The video of Biden allegedly laughing off the question from the Post reporter has been heavily circulated online.
Some have claimed that this reaction proves that the President is not taking the allegations seriously, while others dismiss it as a harmless gesture.
Biden’s tenure as Vice President has been the subject of much scrutiny since he announced his candidacy for President.
Many of the controversies surrounding his time in office have come under renewed scrutiny in light of the allegations against him.
Senators from both sides of the aisle have called for transparency with regards to the allegations against Biden.
While some have dismissed the claims as politically motivated, others argue that the potential implications of these allegations are too serious to ignore.
Critics of Biden have seized on the allegations as proof of widespread corruption within the Democratic party. Some have even gone so far as to argue that the allegations could result in calls for impeachment, although it remains to be seen whether these claims have any merit.
Despite the controversy surrounding the allegations, the White House has maintained that Biden is focused on working for the American people.
The President has made several major policy moves in his first few months in office, including the passage of the American Rescue Plan.
Many of Biden’s supporters have dismissed the allegations against him as politically motivated attacks. They argue that the President has done nothing wrong and is being targeted solely because he is a Democrat.
The Burisma scandal is just the latest controversy to surface during Biden’s time in office.
The President has faced criticism for his handling of the COVID-19 pandemic, his stance on immigration, and his foreign policy decisions, among other issues.
Despite the criticism, Biden remains committed to his vision for a better America. The President has made fighting for the middle class a key part of his platform, and has promised to work tirelessly to create a fairer, more just society for all Americans.
As the allegations against Biden continue to make headlines, it remains to be seen what the ultimate outcome of the scandal will be.
Some believe that the scandal will ultimately fade away, while others argue that it could have serious implications for the President and the Democratic party.
Regardless of the outcome, the Burisma scandal highlights the ongoing challenges facing the American political system. With both parties so deeply divided, it is becoming increasingly difficult to hold elected officials accountable for their actions.
