Elise Stefanik: Latest Trump Indictment Is a Distraction from Biden Family Corruption Scandal

House Conference Chair Elise Stefanik (R-NY) has warned the American people that the latest indictment against President Donald Trump from the weaponized Department of Justice (DOJ) is a distraction from “one of the greatest political corruption scandals in history.”

Rep. Stefanik, the third most powerful House Republican, slammed the third indictment of Trump from Special Counsel Jack Smith.

As Slay News reported earlier, Smith hit Trump with four more criminal charges on Tuesday related to the 2020 election.

Smith announced that a grand jury in Washington, D.C. has indicted Trump on charges relating to the January 6, 2021, riot at the U.S. Capitol.

The move from Smith conveniently came one day after Hunter Biden’s longtime friend and business partner Devon Archer testified before Congress about the Democrat president’s role in his family’s foreign influence-peddling.

Archer told Congress that he was present during at least 20 different meetings when then-Vice President Joe Biden was on speakerphone with business associates to sell “the brand.”

According to Archer, “the brand” Biden was selling was access to the White House.

Stefanik issued a fiery statement to blast the weaponized DOJ’s double standard of “justice,” saying:

Today’s sham indictment of Donald Trump is yet another desperate attempt to distract attention away from the mounting evidence of Joe Biden’s direct involvement in his family’s illegal influence peddling scheme – one of the greatest political corruption scandals in history.

“Less than 24 hours ago, Congress heard testimony from Hunter Biden’s longtime business partner that Joe Biden joined Hunter’s business calls over 20 times,” Stefanik added.

“This directly contradicts Biden’s lie that he never discussed business with his son.”

Smith indicted Trump on four counts:

  • Conspiracy to defraud the U.S.
  • Conspiracy to obstruct an official proceeding
  • Obstruction and attempt to obstruct an official proceeding
  • Conspiracy against rights.

“President Trump had every right under the First Amendment to correctly raise concerns about election integrity in 2020,” Stefanik said in defense of Trump.

“Despite the DOJ’s illegal attempt to interfere in the 2024 election on behalf of Joe Biden, President Trump continues to skyrocket in the polls and will defeat Joe Biden and be sworn in as President of the United States in January 2025.”

This is not the first time Smith has hit Trump with conveniently timed charges, however.

In June, Smith indicted Trump on the same day the House Oversight Committee Republicans revealed an FBI informant file that claims Joe and Hunter Biden received $5 million each after the then-VP threatened to withhold aid to Ukraine until a prosecutor probing the Ukrainian energy company Burisma Holdings was fired.
