MSNBC host Joe Scarborough led a “Morning Joe” panel discussion on Tuesday during which he and several others attempted to spin Hunter Biden’s indictment as “good news” for his father, President Joe Biden.

Scarborough set the scene, saying that the Hunter Biden indictment was just the last entry in a long laundry list of “conspiracy theories” that had been stirred up by Republicans — specifically “Trump Republicans,” who he said wanted to damage the president by connecting him to anything that stuck to his son.


“Obviously Republicans, Trump Republicans have been trying to stir up conspiracy theories left and right, one after another have been disproven, one after another we found out – The Wall Street Journal editorial page themselves said, ‘No fire here, smoke all over the place, no fire,'” Scarborough began.

“Not only have they proven nothing, they have senior members of the Senate saying we don’t care whether he’s guilty or not, we don’t care whether he did this stuff or not, it’s all been a show,” he continued. “Well, that show has just been exposed by Trump’s own — by Trump’s own prosecutor, a Trump-appointed prosecutor in Delaware.”

Scarborough referenced the deal reportedly struck by the president’s embattled son – a deal in which Hunter Biden will plead guilty to misdemeanor tax crimes and avoid jail time — and turned the question over to Jonathan Lemire.


“Yes, Hunter Biden, pleading guilty,” Lemire repeated, going on to suggest that Republicans had simply been throwing accusations at the younger Biden in the hopes that something would eventually stick. “Certainly Republicans have, for literally years now, accused Hunter Biden of basically everything under the sun, including that he’s the mastermind behind the Biden crime family and corruption and all that, charges which we don’t need to get into now because they were never brought.”

Lemire concluded that was “good news” — the fact that he had not been charged with anything that could be directly tied to his father — but Lemire agreed that the investigations into Hunter Biden on other matters were still likely to continue: Republicans, he said, “will continue hammering away no matter what the facts actually hold.”
