(Congress Report) – Fox News contributor Geraldo Rivera has a well earned reputation for being easily angered and flapping his gums in such a way that he ends up embarrassing himself on a regular basis. This is pretty common with left-wing pundits, but Rivera has turned this into a fine-tuned science.
Our latest example of this comes to us from Geraldo ranting on Twitter about critics of Hunter Biden, the younger son of President Joe Biden and the investigations currently going on concerning his potential illegal business activities, saying it’s time for these individuals to “put up or shut up,” concerning the presentation of evidence for these scandals.
Well, the challenge was accepted, and things did not go the way Rivera thought they would.
“Hunter Biden has been investigated for almost five years. Aside from fact he’s been a junkie dirtbag nothing remotely criminal has been uncovered,” Rivera said in the post. “Put up or shut up.”

Joe Saunders of The Western Journal wrote, “Well, even if a disgraceful history of drug abuse, adultery and child abandonment were all there was to the Hunter Biden story, River’s glib ‘aside from fact he’s been a junkie dirtbag’ would rank right up there with ‘Other than that, Mrs. Lincoln, how was the play?’ as a masterwork of eliding the obvious.”
If you’ve been following the Hunter Biden debacle and have more than one fully functioning brain cell, then you know there’s a whole lot more going on behind the scenes with Hunter’s behavior than simple personal sin.
Top-selling author and editor-in-chief of the popular conservative website, The Federalist, Mollie Hemingway, is just such a person. She took up Rivera’s challenge, and boy did she ever meet and exceed it.

Hemingway’s response was chock full of mockery for Rivera and she wasn’t shy about it.
“Setting aside the gun crimes, prostitution crimes, drug crimes, tax crimes, bribery receipts, foreign agent shenanigans, money laundering, pay-for-play, and kid-glove treatment from the corrupt and politicized FBI and DOJ, this is a really astute observation,” she stated in her post.

It’s now public knowledge that Hunter Biden told a big fat whopper on his background check form while purchasing a firearm back in 2018. The man has authored an entire tome about his drug problems. He also has a rather well documented history of having “tax issues.”
Hunter Biden admitted that the only reason he was on the board for Ukraine energy company Burisma was due to his last name. I don’t think we need to play nice with this guy, do you? There’s plenty of evidence found on his now infamous laptop to suggest he and his dear old dad were part of an influence peddling scheme.
“The FBI, remember, had the Hunter Biden laptop for almost a year before the public became aware of it and its incendiary, incriminating contents thanks to the New York Post’s reporting in 2020 — reporting that was squelched by the lords of social media at the instigation of the FBI,” Saunders revealed.
Some of Hemingway’s followers also joined in on the fun.
One social media user tweeted, “last I knew being called a junkie would require the possession of some kind of illegal drug. Geraldo never disappoints.”
Obviously agree with you on all of it, but last I knew being called a junkie would require the possession of some kind of illegal drug. Geraldo never disappoints.

“Dropping your famous-person-dad’s name as part of your con to impress people =/= pay-to-play,” another replied.

Perhaps the best one of the bunch remarked, “That Hunter hasn’t been arrested for the myriad crimes for which there is ample evidence on the laptop isn’t an indication of his innocence. It’s proof of the type of corruption we typically see in 3rd world countries.”

Saunders penned, “Meanwhile, Rep. James Comer, chairman of the House Oversight Committee, announced on Tuesday that his committee has managed to get through stonewalling by the Treasury Department to get access to records that indicated ‘suspicious activity’ when it came to the Biden family’s finances.”
“After two months of dragging their feet, the Treasury Department is finally providing us with access to the suspicious activity reports for the Biden family and their associates’ business transactions,” the Kentucky Republican went on to say in a statement on the Oversight Committee’s website.
“It should never have taken us threatening to hold a hearing and conduct a transcribed interview with an official under the penalty of perjury for Treasury to finally accommodate part of our request,” he added.
“According to bank documents we’ve already obtained, we know one company owned by a Biden associate received a $3 million dollar wire from a Chinese energy company two months after Joe Biden left the vice presidency. Soon after, hundreds of thousands of dollars in payouts went to members of the Biden family,” Comer asserted.
“We are going to continue to use bank documents and suspicious activity reports to follow the money trail to determine the extent of the Biden family’s business schemes, if Joe Biden is compromised by these deals, and if there is a national security threat. If Treasury tries to stonewall our investigation again, we will continue to use tools at our disposal to compel compliance,” he continued.
We need the truth. We need Hunter Biden and his father held accountable for their corruption. Like yesterday.
