Representative Byron Donalds (R-FL) claimed in an interview with SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Daily this week that there is “no doubt” that President Biden participated in a bribery scheme after reviewing an FBI document by House Oversight Committee Chair James Comer (KY), but the media is going to “ignore it.”
“When Chairman Comer and I spoke yesterday, he repeated [exactly] what was in the paper. And in their eyes, Joe Biden was directly engaged in his bribery plot and is fully aware of what his brother as well as his son have been up to. The ability to convey and record it, in my opinion, is extremely simple for us,” said Donalds to Breitbart News Editor-in-Chief Alex Marlow.
“But the problem we’ll have — and I would like to be crystal-clear on this — is that the Democrats will lie, the media will ignore, and I believe that’s where conservatives and also Republicans get frustrated — and deservedly so — is because, in my opinion, we already have smoking guns on this family. However, a sizable portion of our media just ignores it,” according to Donalds.
“We’re giving you the information that you need, but it is like a tree falling in the middle of a forest, you know, Is there truly a sound if the media decides to ignore it? And that’s what’s taking place at the moment. Simply put, they are deciding to ignore it,” he said.
“If the Democrats possessed this amount of knowledge on Donald Trump, George W. Bush, Mitt Romney, Ron DeSantis, or anybody, they would be covering this material nonstop and wall-to-wall since the intended effect is on politics and to weaken Republican politics. And this is the strategy they will use. They’re going to make every effort to disregard this. We have really already given a ton of evidence illustrating just how much controversy surrounds this administration,” he said.
Donalds also spoke about his support for Donald Trump in the 2024 presidential contest.
“The next president will need to go to work immediately to undo all of the damage Joe Biden has caused to the nation,” he added. “I mean no offense to any of the other candidates, but Donald Trump has done a good job. He worked there for four years.”
“And now we are aware after looking over the Durham report, in particular with what took place during the Mueller probe and the impeachments, it’s clear this president — Donald Trump — was actually under heavy attack from the administrative state, coming from the media, and from outside organizations, in a way that no other president has ever been under attack,” he said.
