Lara Trump pushed back on rumors that President Donald Trump is considering issuing pre-emptive pardons for himself and members of his family before departing the White House if, in fact, he is forced to do so.

Rather, the president’s campaign adviser and daughter-in-law said, it’s another potential first family that may be in need of them.

“I don’t think we’re the family that needs a pardon. It looks like that might go to the Biden family,” she told Just The News’ “The Water Cooler” podcast host David Brody Thursday.

“The reality is, they have tried to take down this president in any way possible since day one,” she continued. “That has come in the form of weaponizing the justice system [and] doing everything they can to try and attack all of us.”

She also reminded Brody that brother-in-law Donald Trump Jr. testified multiple times on Capitol Hill over the “Russian collusion hoax,” while noting that few in the media paid attention to scandals involving Hunter Biden.

Lara Trump’s comments came a day after Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, released a statement indicating federal officials are looking into “tax affairs” involving him.

“I learned yesterday for the first time that the U.S. attorney’s office in Delaware advised my legal counsel, also yesterday, that they are investigating my tax affairs,” Biden said in a statement Wednesday.

“I take this matter very seriously but I am confident that a professional and objective review of these matters will demonstrate that I handled my affairs legally and appropriately, including with the benefit of professional tax advisors.”

But there is more to the Hunter Biden saga than just tax issues, argue two GOP senators who’ve been investigating his business activities.

Sens. Charles Grassley (Iowa) and Ron Johnson (Wis.) — who released a damning report alleging corruption involving Hunter Biden and the former VP’s brother, James Biden, among others in September — said last month following the election that new records appear to show the Biden family had deeper connections to China than previously known, in addition to links between Hunter Biden associations and Russia.

“Some of the additional findings from their investigation include millions of dollars sent from a Shanghai-based company with links to CEFC, which was effectively an extension of the communist Chinese government, to a close business associate of Hunter Biden,” they said in a statement, a reference to a firm founded by billionaire Ye Jianming, who is purported to have ties to the Communist Party of China.

Both cited an October Tucker Carlson interview with former Biden family business associate Tony Bobulinski, who said he believes Joe and Hunter Biden “are compromised” by China.

“…[T]hese new records confirm the connections between the Biden family and the communist Chinese government, as well as the links between Hunter Biden’s business associates and the Russian government, and further support the Committees’ September 23, 2020 report’s finding that such relationships created counterintelligence and extortion concerns,” Grassley and Johnson noted in a supplemental report published last month.

Just weeks before the election, the New York Post published two bombshell reports detailing information garnered from a laptop Hunter Biden dropped off at a computer repair shop in Delaware but never retrieved.

Court documents obtained by The Post indicated that the FBI had obtained the laptop a year ago after the owner of the shop contacted the bureau about it and its contents.

Before he turned it over, however, he copied the hard drive and provided a copy to presidential lawyer Rudy Giuliani, The Post noted.
