The Catholic Defender: The Foreign Emoluments Clause and Joe Biden
The past several days there have been a media blackout beginning with Twitter and Facebook with the intent to protect Joe Biden against a New York Post report that reveals Hunter Biden left his labtop with a repair shop. This hard-drive was found to have incriminating information on it. Thousands of emails from the Ukraine and China showed financial gain for Joe Biden and his family.
As an American Soldier deployed to Saudi Arabia during Desert shield/Desert Storm, Soldiers were offered $5,000 each from King Fad for the defense of his country against Saddam Hussain. President Bush Sr. rejected that idea because he did not what Americans to be Soldiers of Fortune, mercenaries for hire.
We were briefed beforehand that we were not allowed to accept gifts because we were under the Foreign Emoluments Clause to prevent corrupting foreign influences. The purpose of the Foreign Emoluments Clause which prevents corruption to any Federal Office holder.
President Trump is calling for a Special Prosecutor to investigate the Joe Biden scandal. Had this scandal happened during Joe Biden's Vice Presidency of the United States, he would have been impeached if found guilty. Since it appears that Joe Biden continued this breaking of the public trust during the Trump Presidency, he should be brought up on charges now.
Article 1, Section 9 Clause 8 prohibits any Federal Office holder, without the consent of Congress, any present, emolument, office, title of any kind what so ever from any king, prince, of foreign state.
No Title of Nobility shall be granted by the United States: And no Person holding any Office of Profit or Trust under them, shall, without the Consent of the Congress accept of any present, Emolument, Office, or Title, of any kind whatever, from any King, Prince, or foreign State.
Joe Biden, according to Hunter's emails, would collect from 10 to 50% of the monies "earned" from Hunter Biden coming from the Ukraine and China. This would be treasonous, a betrayal of the public trust. There would be no allegiance but, totally disloyalty as Joe Biden sought financial gain for himself through his office of the Vice President. If he had been found guilty, Joe Biden was a traitor to the United States.
This is an important matter of national security as Joe Biden has been compromised by the Chinese, Ukraine, Russia, and no telling who else. A Pay to Play scheme, blackmail as the result of a Quid Pro Quo,
"I'll do this for you if you do this for me".
People deserve to know the truth before November 3 when the bulk of people vote for the next President of the United States.
