    It's a huge conflict of interest if you are Commerce Secretary. It isn't "traitorous" . . . you'd likely only hear a claim like that from Trump supporters, who apparently think it is scandalous for a private citizen to possibly have 10% in a company that does business with China.

    you mean his company paid taxes as the law required? Ok

    meanwhile Big Guy Biden was getting a 10 percent kickback

    They discussed the possibility 10% equity. Which there is no evidence he actually took them up on. Which you still haven't found anything illegal regarding. You can keep reheating the nothing burger, but it is still a nothing burger.

    it wasn't equity...Biden said he never talked any business deals with his son, so it couldn't have been, and more over he wasn't on any corp filings.....it was a kickback

    I am not the FBI, I am not the one investigating...they apparently think there is enough evidence though to open the money laundering case

    Yes, it was equity. Even the "eye witness" says it was equity. Every single source on this says it was equity.

    Yes. Lying is clearly a physical impossibility . . . what the hell planet do you live on?

    It wouldn't need to be unless he actually took them up on it.

    It was, according to every source we have, a discussion of a potential equity split. I'm sorry this ruins your fantasy, but that's it.

    There is no evidence that Joe Biden is the target of any such case.

    “The documents don’t say if Ross was paid for his board seat or whether there is any current financial relationship between Ross and the joint venture. It’s also unclear if Ross knew that he remained on the board seat: The more recent documents don’t include the signatures or seals of the individual board members. That Chinese documents state Ross was on the board of a Chinese joint venture until 2019 has not been previously reported.”


    Ahem....

    And Trump himself was getting kickbacks from the Chinese company!

    Wow, this is easy. I should write for the post.

    That has nothing to do with my "narrative". Read again! I couldn't care less what it was that he was on the board of.

    Absolutely it matters.

    You are holding out that he was working for a Chinese company when he wasn't.

    Dirty Donald collects millions from his tenant in Trump Tower New York the Industrial and Commercial Bank of China 70% owned by the Chinese government. Goes well with his Chinese bank account

    Wrong! I was holding that he has much worse problems than... anything that has to do with China (whatever you want to call it. I couldn't care less).

    Pay attention!
