Government Accountability Institute president and Breitbart News senior contributor Peter Schweizer says President Joe Biden could still be guilty of bribery even if the president did not receive a dime from the money his family made in their foreign dealings.
Schweizer made the arguments in an interview with anchor Maria Bartiromo on Fox News Channels’ “Sunday Morning Futures.”

“One of the reasons the House is investigating is to untangle how Joe Biden might have financially benefited from these deals,” Schweizer said. “But let’s be crystal clear about this, if you look at the federal guidelines on bribery, Foreign Corrupt Practices Act —the international bribery standards that the Obama-Biden administration signed on to in 2011— bribery does not just entail the politician getting paid. If he was a political figure and took actions that benefited an entity that then pays your family members and you don’t even get a dime, that still constitutes bribery.”
Bartiromo also brought up the issue of the $5.2 million discrepancy in President Biden’s tax returns. Schweizer revealed that Biden omitted the $5.2 million from the Office of Government Ethics forms when he ran for president in 2019 because he knew there would be a lot of scrutiny.

“Yeah well, what we know is that Joe Biden has an LLC called CelticCapri through which he runs his money and on his 2017 and 2018 tax returns,” Schweizer said. “He said on his tax returns that he had $12.6 million in income during those two years. Flash forward to 2019 when he runs for president of the United States, he fills out a form from the Office of Government Ethics, a financial disclosure. During those same two years, he says on form that he only had $7.4 million in income. That’s 40% less than he told the IRS that he had. What accounts for that $5.2 million discrepancy? It’s during the same time period, it’s the same entity. I certainly think one possibility is in 2019 when he fills out that form to run for president, there’s a lot more scrutiny than there was when he was filing his taxes back in 2018.”
