Someone may have finally dropped the dime on President Joe Biden’s financial scandals… and that person may be Joe Biden.
A $7 million gap has opened up in Biden’s records, and it’s about to swallow his whole family in a legal trap.
Biden has to list his income to every year to the IRS, like everyone else—and he’s made those records public. But since he’s a politician, he also has to report his income to the Office of Government Ethics (OGE).
He has two problems: He reported two different numbers. And people can add.
For the years 2017-2019, he reported $16.6 million to the IRS but $9.6 million to OGE.
That’s a $7 million difference.
His defenders point out that a lot of that many comes from his two companies: CelticCapri Corp and Giacoppa Corp… and his wife uses the companies for her income.
But people who have looked at the numbers say, even taking her income out of that $7 million gap leaves $5.2 million unaccounted for.
So, where did all that cash come from?
Biden’s financial disclosures don’t give us much information…but his son’s laptop may.
Hunter Biden’s laptop, which became the most explosive story you weren’t allowed to share, contains emails showing that Biden had a financial stake in his son’s business expenses… and it sure looks like he received as well as he gave.
One of those emails is from Biden’s personal assistant, Katie Dodge, saying that papa would be coming through with cash for Hunter’s legal expenses.
Dodge agreed to pay a total of $737,130.61—including a cool $28,382 for “BHR Restructuring.”
BHR sure sounds like Hunter Biden’s private firm, Bohai Harvest RST…one of his two investments in the People’s Republic of China.
“I spoke with Hunter today regarding his bills. It is my understanding that Hunt’s dad will cover these bills in the short-term as Hunter transitions in his career,” Dodge wrote on behalf of the future president.
BHR needed to be “restructured,” and Hunter was the beneficiary…unless Joe pocketed some of the proceeds, too.
We know Hunter had this Chinese investment, because he still has it. Jen Psaki told the press last February that Hunter still held onto a 10 percent share in the company.
But that breaks Joe Biden’s 2020 campaign promise that “no one in my family will…have any business relationship with anyone that relates to a foreign corporation or a foreign country.”
It also makes it seem like Biden fibbed to Fox News’ Peter Doocy on the campaign trail when Doocy asked him point-blank. Biden flared up and replied, “I’ve never spoken to my son about his overseas business dealings. Here’s what I know — I know Trump deserves to be investigated… You should be looking at Trump.”

It looks like Joe Biden may have been lying on both counts, and he knew it at the time.
And earlier this month, his administration doubled down.
“The president has said that he never spoke with his son about his overseas business dealings. Is that still the case?” Doocy asked Psaki.
But the laptop seems to give the lie to Biden and Psaki, who’s reportedly about to leave the White House for cable TV.
“The ‘missing millions’ – combined with emails on Hunter’s abandoned laptop suggesting Joe would have a 10% share in Hunter’s blockbuster deal with the Chinese – raise a troubling question: did Joe Biden receive money from the foreign venture?” asked The Daily Mail, a British newspaper.
One thing is for certain: It shouldn’t fall to a British newspaper to investigate the biggest story in American politics.
“When will the corporate media start doing their job and ask President Biden these questions? And when will President Biden start being honest with the public?” asked Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wis. “The American people deserve the truth.”
They won’t, but The Horn will.
