Seamus Bruner, the Director of Research at the Government Accountability Institute and author of “Controligarchs: Exposing the Billionaire Class, their Secret Deals, and the Globalist Plot to Dominate Your Life,” asserted on Sunday’s “Fox & Friends” that he believes the impeachment of President Joe Biden for bribery would be an “open and shut case.”
During the interview, Bruner emphasized the need for the investigation to be conducted behind closed doors. He stated, “It needs to be behind closed doors. And, of course, Hunter and his allies want to make it the public spectacle where it’s about the drugs and the prostitutes and poor Hunter’s problem. They need it behind closed doors so they can really drill down, get to the meat of the problem, follow the money, reference the emails that are so damning against Hunter and even Joe.”
Continuing, Bruner pointed out what he perceives as the Bidens’ dishonesty regarding their business dealings. He highlighted the evolution of the Democratic response from initially dismissing allegations as “crazy conspiracy theories” to now asserting that Joe Biden never got paid. Bruner contested this standard, citing 18USC, section 271, which states that anything of value for any official action constitutes bribery. He argued that the value could be payments to Hunter, James Biden, or other family members, not necessarily directly to Joe, making the current standard a false one. According to Bruner, if bribery occurred, the Constitution mandates impeachment.
Bruner outlined his proposal for the investigation, stating, “If they can get Hunter Biden behind closed doors and drill down on two questions; Number one, did you ever talk to your father about your foreign business dealings? We know the answer to that is yes. Hunter’s not been honest about this, but the second question is did your father ever talk to your business partners while doing foreign policy that affected their business. And the answer to both those questions is yes, and the money proves that things of value were transferred. Now, Joe Biden in his own words has said he withheld the billion or dollars, that’s an official action right there unless they fired the prosecutor, and then the email showed that the Burisma executives wanted Joe Biden to do that. So this is an open and shut case as far as I’m concerned.”
