According to a new report from politico, Joe Biden warned his younger brother Frank during his campaign to watch out on business dealings.
“For Christ’s sake, watch yourself,” Biden said to Frank according to Politico’s un-named source.
“Don’t get sucked into something that would, first of all, hurt you,” he added.
Per Politico “only a week into his presidency, Biden already has had to answer for matters related to his family. A law firm ad promoting Frank Biden’s relationship with the president caused a stir when it ran on Inauguration Day. A federal investigation into Biden’s son, Hunter, has invited scrutiny of just how strict a firewall he’ll keep between the White House and the Justice Department. And another of the president’s brothers, James, has previously come under fire for his business dealings.”
Attorney and Democratic donor John Morgan said “What Frank told me is ‘my brother loves me dearly, but if I lobbied, he would cut my legs from underneath me.”
“Frank made it clear to me what the president made clear to him,” Morgan continued, ” The day he got elected, the long knives came out for all things Biden. There’s a target on all of them.”
