Joe Biden first ran for U.S. President in 1987. He was considered a strong contender for the Democratic Party’s nomination, but in April of that year controversy descended on Biden’s campaign when he told several lies about his academic record in law school. In an April 3, 1987 appearance on C-SPAN, a questioner asked Biden about his law school grades. In response, an angry Biden looked at his questioner and said, “I think I have a much higher I.Q. than you do.” He then stated that he had gone “to law school on a full academic scholarship – the only one in my class to have a full academic scholarship”; that he had “ended up in the top half” of his law school class; and that he had “graduated with three degrees from college.”

But each of these claims proved not to be true. In reality, Biden had: (a) earned only two college degrees – in history and political science – at the University of Delaware in Newark, where he graduated only 506th in a class of 688; (b) attended law school on a half scholarship that was based on financial need; and (C) eventually graduated 76th in a law school class of 85. “I exaggerate when I’m angry,” Biden would later concede, “but I’ve never gone around telling people things that aren’t true about me.”

Then, in August 1987 Biden plagiarized a portion of a speech made by British politician Neil Kinnock. Before long, revelations surfaced that Biden also had plagiarized extensive portions of an article in law school and consequently had received a grade of “F” for the course. (HE eventually was permitted to retake the course, and the failure was removed from his transcript.)

As a result of these embarrassing examples of dishonesty, Biden withdrew from the presidential campaign on September 23, 1987 and resumed his duties as a U.S. Senator.

Joe Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, was named to Ukraine’s largest gas provider following a Ukraine visit by Biden. He later threatened to withhold $1 Billion in U.S. aid to Ukraine if they didn’t fire a prosecutor looking into Hunter Biden’s company.

Hunter Biden, who arrived in China aboard Air Force Two alongside then Vice President Joe Biden, was at the time in control of Rosemont Seneca Partners LLC., a private equity firm that would go on to strike a deal with the state-owned Bank of China to create a $1 Billion joint investment fund. A second meeting that same year between Hunter Biden and other top Chinese officials would occur in Taiwan, just two weeks after Joe Biden opened up strategic talks with China in Washington.

Some hard questions should be answered by Joe Biden as he prepares, potentially, to run for president in 2020: Was it appropriate for your son and his firm to cash in on Ukraine while you served as point man for Ukraine policy? What work was performed for the money Hunter Biden’s firm received? Did you know about the Burisma probe? And when it was publicly announced that your son worked for Burisma, should you have recused yourself from leveraging a U.S. policy to pressure the prosecutor who very publicly pursued Burisma?

The FBI report on the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting contained approximately 1700 pages. The FBI report on the Las Vegas shooting contained 3 pages. We don’t know any more today than we did when it happened. What are they hiding?
