Move over, Clinton Foundation: Here comes the Beau Biden Foundation for Protecting Children

In October 2016, it was materials in WikiLeaks that changed voter inclinations against Hillary Clinton, not foreign interference.  So many documents confirmed suspicions of corrupt Clinton family behavior, barely hidden in plain view for decades.  Four years later, almost to the day, it is unproven but not yet credibly denied allegations of criminal behavior by the wider Biden clan that may usher in a sequel and spectacularly upend the nominal favorite in this presidential election.

Reporting just out through the New York Post, foreign outlets and the blogosphere puts a spotlight on the Beau Biden Foundation for Protecting Children.  It seems there may be connections between the hard drive and computer equipment so much in focus and this charity that ramped up after Joe Biden turned over the vice president's residence to Mike Pence.


The story goes that a person dropped off three MacBook Pros to a repair shop in Delaware in April of 2019, claiming they were water damaged and needed data recovery services. The owner of the repair shop "couldn't positively identify the customer as Hunter Biden," but the laptop had a Beau Biden Foundation sticker on it.

Near the beginning of my latest podcast with Jason Goodman, we point viewers to disclosures for the Beau Biden charity that are available through ProPublica's Nonprofit Explorer.

The Beau Biden entity, like the Clinton, Obama, and Bush foundations, is a "public charity," meaning that it may not be controlled by one family or used in partisan political activities or to derive private advantages, financial or otherwise.

Reading through the latest available disclosures, we discover that Beau's widow, Hallie Biden, and Hunter Biden served as co-chairs.  Hunter's half-sister, Ashley Biden, also is on the Board of this public charity, as is former FBI director Louis Freeh.

Newspaper accounts of Hunter's troubled life, of his relationship with Hallie, and of Ashley's own travails may explain why Bidens on the Board have been too busy to supervise the nonprofit, discharging their solemn duties of care, obedience, and loyalty.

How, then, might we explain why Freeh missed reckless behavior of near-blood relatives who held themselves out as co-chairs of a public charity "protecting children"?

It takes a special kind of villain to exploit children.  These are precious lives, naïve and trusting and the true future of humanity.

So now we wait to learn what else several generations of Bidens may have done, possibly taking advantage of young, vulnerable persons as more revelations promised by Rudy Giuliani and Steve Bannon are set to drop.

Truth will out, like it or not.  The FBI must investigate criminal behavior, not protect politicians, however powerful they are or hope to be.
