Representative Devin Nunes (R-CA), the ranking member of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, spoke with Breitbart News about the corruption of the mainstream media.
Information revealed in a new book written by Breitbart News’ Editor-in-Chief Alex Marlow shows that Hunter Biden took more than 20 trips through Joint Base Andrews, where Air Force One and Air Force Two are kept. According to Devin Nunes, this revelation is more proof of the “utter corruption” of the mainstream media.
“The revelation of Hunter Biden’s trips through Joint Base Andrews is further proof of the corporate media’s utter corruption and blinding partisanship,” Nunes told Breitbart News exclusively in an interview on May 23. “They dismissed, ridiculed, and censored reporting on Hunter’s obvious conflicts of interest for the sole purpose of helping Joe Biden’s election prospects. The corporate media has fully merged with the Democratic Party, and their reporting is indistinguishable from crude Democrat talking points.”
The book that Nunes is referring to, Breaking the News: Exposing the Establishment Media’s Secret Deals and Hidden Corruption, contains Secret Service travel records showing that, from 2009 to 2014, Hunter Biden took 411 trips, including to 29 foreign countries and 23 total trips through Joint Base Andrews, during the time that his father was vice president.
Breitbart News published an article written by Marlow which incorporated some of the information from the book, explaining why these trips through Joint Base Andrews are so important:
“Despite this evidence that there was not an ‘absolute wall’ between Hunter and Joe when it comes to business endeavors, the establishment press has shown little interest in exploring whether Hunter was actually leveraging his father’s power to enrich himself. In fact, quite the contrary. The New York Times, for example, published a story in 2020 portraying Hunter as a skilled artist who was mastering painting. The article, headlined ‘There’s a New Artist in Town. The Name Is Biden,’ un-ironically featured glossy photographs of a relaxed and polished Hunter Biden working away in his studio.
The American public has been told consistently that Hunter Biden is as pure as the driven snow. Joe Biden called his son ‘the smartest guy I know.’ Dr. Jill Biden (Ed.D.) and Joe both expressed confidence that Hunter had done nothing wrong. And, of course, Joe said he thought it was all Russian disinformation. And of course, Facebook and Twitter famously censored bombshell reporting by the New York Post on Hunter Biden that has not been proven to be ‘Russian’ or ‘disinfo.’”
Joe Biden claimed on the campaign trail that he “never” spoke to his son “about his overseas business dealings,” but how is that possible when he clearly allowed his son to fly through Joint Base Andrews more than 20 times? It is unlikely that this question will never be answered, because Devin Nunes is right: the media is corrupt.
During the press event in Des Moines where Biden made that claim, he gave the media specific instructions, stating: “You should be looking at Trump. He’s doing this because he knows I’ll beat him like a drum. And he’s using an abuse of power and every element of the presidency to try to smear me… Ask the right questions.”
The media immediately followed Joe’s instructions, ignoring the evidence proving that Trump’s claims about Hunter were true, even suppressing news that contradicted their narrative. The reason why so many questions about Hunter’s trips are still unanswered is because the media refuses to do their job and ask them. Instead, they jumped at the chance to attack Donald Trump.
Devin Nunes is one of the few politicians left that is still asking questions, but will they ever be answered? If Republicans in Congress don’t get their act together, it’s highly unlikely.
