CNN Legal Analyst Elie Honig Expresses Opinion on Hunter Biden’s Finances

On Tuesday, CNN legal analyst Elie Honig made a statement suggesting that Hunter Biden’s financial success can be attributed solely to his famous last name, “Biden.” Honig’s remarks seemed to imply that Hunter Biden’s connections and opportunities were primarily influenced by being the son of President Joe Biden.

Speaker of the House Kevin McCarthy Raises Possibility of Impeachment Inquiry for President Joe Biden

During an appearance on Fox News on Monday, Speaker of the House Kevin McCarthy hinted at the potential initiation of an impeachment inquiry against President Joe Biden. The remarks came after Iowa Republican Senator Chuck Grassley released a 1023-document that allegedly implicates President Biden in his son’s foreign business dealings while he was Vice President.

Document Alleges Bribery Involving Hunter Biden and President Joe Biden

The released document contains allegations suggesting that Hunter Biden and President Joe Biden were involved in a bribery scheme with Mykola Zlochevsky, the Ukrainian oligarch who founded the energy firm Burisma. According to the document, Zlochevsky purportedly informed an FBI source that records of illicit payments to President Biden would be challenging to trace for over a decade. Notably, the FBI had reservations about releasing the document.

“It’s not a legal question, it’s a political question, but what did you make hearing Kevin McCarthy say —” CNN’s Poppy Harlow began to ask.

“Well, this is the power of the majority. This is why elections matter. If you control Congress, you can open an impeachment inquiry. Speaking of there not being a smoking gun in any case, I still haven’t seen a smoking gun on this case,” Honig said. “I think there are legitimate questions about where Hunter Biden was getting his money from. Clearly he was only getting his money because his last name was Biden. But what’s been missing is that definitive Link to his father. You know, I think it’s an interesting political question, you both are political experts, but how does that play to open an impeachment inquiry and potentially impeach this guy at this point?”

Honig also recently said the IRS whistleblowers who testified before Congress that the Department of Justice pressured prosecutors not to charge Hunter with felony charges have legitimate “concerns” that should be taken seriously.
