Fox News host Maria Bartiromo has suggested that Trump’s possible impeachment over secret payments to porn star Stormy Daniels may be part of a plot to divert attention from recent revelations about Joe Biden’s questionable family finances.
Speaking to Sunday Morning Futures with former director of national intelligence John Ratcliffe, Bartiromo said it was “disturbing” that news of Trump’s impeachment broke just days after a congressional committee released documents that appeared to indicate that Biden’s family members were paid more than $1 million. by the Chinese government.
The report was released by House Republicans on Thursday and showed that the president’s son Hunter Biden, his son’s widow Beau Biden, and other relatives of the president’s family received the cash in 2017 from an associate who had signed a trade agreement with a Chinese energy company.
Just two days later, Trump wrote on Truth Social that he had received information indicating that the Manhattan district attorney’s office planned to arrest him on Tuesday.
Speaking with Bartriromo, Ratcliffe said this timing didn’t seem like a coincidence. House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer, who led the investigation into the Biden family finances, also appeared on the show and called the timing suspicious.

On Saturday night, Trump appeared at the NCAA Championship Wrestling Championship in Tulsa, Oklahoma, where he delivered a defiant fist to the crowd to a standing ovation.
After discussing Biden’s foreign policy record with Ratcliffe, Bartiromo asked him whether or not he thought the timing of the Trump impeachment news was coincidental.
“This is so incredibly disturbing, do you think there’s a coincidence that as soon as James Comer comes out exposing those bank records, suddenly Trump will be impeached?” she said.
“You were talking about this soft approach by Joe Biden to China, we constantly ask, why, why not protect America? Is it a coincidence now that Trump is going to be impeached on Tuesday after these bank records were revealed last week?
Ratcliffe said he did not believe in coincidences and hoped the Biden investigation would not stop.
“I really don’t believe much in coincidences, so I think what Congressman Comer is doing is important, and it’s a way for the American people to really find out what’s going on. And I hope that effort continues, and I think it will.’
Comer himself joined the conversation, saying the moment raised eyebrows.
“It is very strange that this came to light the next day after he released bank records showing that the Biden family, the president in particular, has not been candid about his family receiving parents directly from the Chinese Communist Party.” . ‘ he said.
“So it almost feels like it’s an effort to detract, but at the very least, it’s another example of a two-tier justice system.”
House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer, who led the investigation into the Biden family finances, also appeared on the show and called the timing suspicious.
The porn star Stormy Daniels. Trump paid her $130,000 in hush money before the 2016 election to keep quiet about her affair.
President Biden on Friday rejected a Republican report, strongly denying its veracity.
“That’s not true,” he said when asked about it as he left the White House for the weekend at his home in Wilmington, Delaware.
The findings were part of an investigation by the House Republican Party into Hunter Biden’s business dealings and how the presidential son earned his money amid allegations that he used his father’s position for personal gain.
The House Oversight Committee obtained more than a decade of bank records through subpoenas while investigating the Biden family.
They zeroed in on Hunter Biden’s associate John R. Walker for questioning after poring over his bank records for years and discovering a $35,000 payment to Hallie Biden, Beau Biden’s widow.
The GOP findings indicated that Walker received a $3 million wire transfer from Chinese State Energy HK Limited, a company affiliated with CEFC China Energy, and then distributed $1.3 million to accounts associated with members of the Biden family.
Hunter Biden and Joe’s brother Jim were the others to get a piece of the cash.
Comer wrote to Walker that the panel “is investigating President Biden’s involvement in his family’s business practices” and “identified him as a key witness in this matter and reviewed evidence showing that he received millions of dollars from a company energy from China and elsewhere.
