On Monday evening, just hours before the Senate was set to begin deliberation on the fate of Donald J. Trump’s impeachment, a scandal with some familiar overtones wafted into our general vicinity.
In this late-breaking news, former Vice President Joe Biden is again embroiled in an alleged scheme to enrich his kin, this time involving his brother Frank.
Frank Biden, the youngest brother of former Vice President Joe Biden, saw his business interests benefit from millions of dollars in taxpayer loans to Caribbean nations during the Obama years.
The extensive overlap in Frank Biden’s dealings and Obama-Biden foreign policy in Central America is exposed in Peter Schweizer’s new book—Profiles in Corruption: Abuse of Power by America’s Progressive Elite.
Unlike the chilly Ukrainian scandal that played out with his son Hunter, Joe Biden’s brother was working in a much more hospitable climate.
Shortly after the new administration took office, Frank Biden began scouting real estate opportunities in Costa Rica. A lawyer by training, Frank was undeterred by his lack of background in international development and decades old legal troubles at home.
As Schweizer notes, despite the professional and personal handicaps, business opportunities were plentiful for Frank, especially after his brother paid a visit to the country.
“Just months after Vice President [Joe] Biden’s visit, in August, Costa Rica News announced a new multilateral partnership “to reform Real Estate in Latin America” between Frank Biden, a developer named Craig Williamson, and the Guanacaste Country Club, a newly planned resort,” Schweizer writes in his book, a copy of which was exclusively obtained by Breitbart News.
The venture—officially sold to investors and the public as an opportunity to protect Costa Rica’s “breathtaking beauty”—amounted to little more than decimating the country’s natural wilderness to build a luxurious resort for wealthy foreigners.
Joe Biden is currently sitting atop the 2020 Democratic polls, but a series of scandalous improprieties could topple his Hawkeye State house of cards, with the Iowa caucuses only a few scant weeks away.
