News that President Joe Biden reportedly ponied up about $800,000 of Hunter Biden’s legal fees has added to the doubt over the elder Biden’s insistence that the duo never had a father-and-son talk about business dealings.

Fox News contributor Newt Gingrich is one of those skeptics, especially given what he considers the broader implications of potentially ethically compromised, anything-for-a-buck U.S. government officials.

In a callback to the sketchy Clinton Foundation, Gingrich implied that it’s all in the family: “The Bidens saw what Hillary and Bill could get away with and thought ‘why not us’? And I think we’re in grave danger of foreign governments beginning to realize that corrupting American officials may be the most effective foreign policy you can have,” he said during a conversation on “The Ingraham Angle” in the segment embedded above.

At the beginning of the interview, Fox News host Laura Ingraham contrasted the current state of play with the way liberals continue to obsess about former President Trump’s finances.

“Nobody on the left is going to admit that you now have a corrupt family with a lying president even though it’s patently obvious,” the former U.S. House Speaker told Ingraham. “Joe Biden did not put $800,000 into paying his son’s legal bills with no knowledge.”

The younger Biden is reportedly under an investigation by the U.S. Attorney in Delaware for alleged influence-peddling in Ukraine, China, and elsewhere. A grand jury has reportedly been empaneled as part of the probe. Both Bidens have denied any improprieties.

Gingrich went on to point out that Hunter’s business associates allegedly made multiple visits to the White House during the Obama/Biden administration, implying that Biden’s boss at the time must have known about the comings and goings.

“At the same time, I think the much bigger story…is the millions and millions of dollars that the Chinese communists gave to the University of Pennsylvania while Joe Biden had established a little school there…and all that’s been secret…and you take that kind of corruption, and then you add to it to what’s happening with Hunter Biden, who apparently was getting money from China, from Ukraine, from Russia — it was amazing to look at the footprints around the world [of] the Biden family business…it’s not just about Hunter Biden. But it’s about the current president of the United States who I think clearly has lied to the country over and over and over about this issue,” Gingrich declared.

He also recalled how Hunter flew with his dad to China on Air Force 2. “They want to tell us that on a 14- or 16-hour flight, Joe never said, “gee, Hunter, what are you doing over here? How’s the business going?'”

Gingrich also claimed that information on the so-called laptop from hell suggested that Hunter was subsidizing his father with cash while the latter was VP. “It’s amazing to me that you could have this blatant level of clearly taking foreign money, in an illegal way, by the vice president of the United States and his family who were running a family business…it’s clearly the exploitation of his public office in order to enrich the family.”

“They think we are so stupid, and they are so confident that they’ll be protected by the elite media, and they’ll be protected by the Justice Department. It’s a study in corruption,” Gingrich concluded.

According to the New York Post, if the GOP regains control of Congress in November, which also will include subpoena power, the U.S. House investigation of Hunter Biden could include five pathways: “Topping the list are the first son’s controversial overseas business dealings — some of which involved the state-controlled Bank of China and other companies tied to the Chinese government — and their potential impact on national security.”
