US Code: Joe Biden Is Disqualified From Holding Any Public Office in the US Federal Government +Video

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.


Joe Biden is prohibited from holding public
office in the US government—Here’s why!

State of the Nation


By his own admission, then Vice President Joe Biden used
upwards of $1 billion of US government loan guarantees as
a bribe to threaten the Ukraine government to immediately
terminate the Prosecutor General who was investigating
the corrupt practices of Burisma Holdings, as well as the
involvement of board director Hunter Biden.  This criminal
act constitutes a federal felony crime and disqualifies Biden
from holding public office.

C A S E  C L O S E D !


First, here’s Biden’s unequivocal Biden’s admission of his crime on video:


Federal Corrupt Practices Act

Now, here is the relevant section from the FOREIGN CORRUPT PRACTICES ACT, that is codified as United States Federal Law, which strictly “prohibits U.S. citizens and entities from bribing foreign government officials to benefit their business interests”.

15 U.S. Code § 78dd–1 – Prohibited foreign trade practices by issuers

The applicable section of the U.S. Code can be found in 15 U.S. Code § 78dd–1 as follows:

U.S. Department of Justice Guidance

Furthermore, the U.S. Department of Justice has published “An Overview” which spells out that what VP Joe Biden did by threatening to withhold loan guarantees to the Ukraine was in blatant violation of U.S. Federal Law.

The Fraud Section of the Criminal Division of the DoJ makes it clear what constitutes a violation of the FOREIGN CORRUPT PRACTICES ACT as follows.

Code of Federal Regulations

Next, there is the pertinent section of Code of Federal Regulations (e-CFR) which explicitly states that no employee of the U.S. Federal Government should use their public office for private gain.  The following excerpt was taken from: 5 CFR § 2635.702 – Use of public office for private gain.


(a) Inducement or coercion of benefits. An employee shall not use or permit the use of his Government position or title or any authority associated with his public office in a manner that is intended to coerce or induce another person, including a subordinate, to provide any benefit, financial or otherwise, to himself or to friends, relatives, or persons with whom the employee is affiliated in a nongovernmental capacity.


Her’s a screenshot of the same CFR regulation that is directly applicable to Joe Biden’s official misconduct while VPOTUS and acting on behalf of his son Hunter Biden in his official capacity on the Board of Directors of Burisma Holding Limited, a Ukrainian Company.

18 U.S.C. § 201: Bribery of public officials and witnesses

Then there is the federal statute codified by the U.S. Code concerning the “Bribery of public officials and witnesses”.  Here again Vice President Biden clearly acted in contravention of both 18 U.S.C. § 201(b)(1) as to the giver, and § 201(b)(2) as to the recipient, in the crime of bribery of a pubic official.

18 U.S.C. § 201 proscribes bribery and the acceptance of certain gratuities. The U.S. Supreme Court in United States v. Sun-Diamond Growers of California526 U.S. 398, 404-405 (1999), describes the two crimes as follows:

“The first crime, described in § 201(b)(1) as to the giver, and § 201(b)(2) as to the recipient, is bribery, which requires a showing that something of value was corruptly given, offered, or promised to a public official (as to the giver) or corruptly demanded, sought, received, accepted, or agreed to be received or accepted by a public official (as to the recipient) with intent, inter alia, ‘to influence any official act’ (giver) or in return for ‘being influenced in the performance of any official act’ (recipient). The second crime, defined in § 201(c)(1)(A) as to the giver, and § 201(c)(1)(B) as to the recipient, is illegal gratuity, which requires a showing that something of value was given, offered, or promised to a public official (as to the giver), or demanded, sought, received, accepted, or agreed to be received or accepted by a public official (as to the recipient), ‘for or because of any official act performed or to be performed by such public official.’

The distinguishing feature of each crime is its intent element. Bribery requires intent ‘to influence’ an official act or ‘to be influenced’ in an official act, while illegal gratuity requires only that the gratuity be given or accepted ‘for or because of’ an official act. In other words, for bribery there must be a quid pro quo a specific intent to give or receive something of value in exchange for an official act. An illegal gratuity, on the other hand, may constitute merely a reward for some future act that the public official will take (and may already have determined to take), or for a past act that he has already taken.”

The U.S. Office of Government Ethics does not render opinions on 18 U.S.C. § 201, but may provide links to relevant information about the topic, when appropriate.

Conclusion

Joe Biden acted in his official capacity Vice President of the United States of America to bribe the Ukraine government in order to compel President Petro Poroshenko to fire the General Prosecutor with the explicit intent to terminate terminate the criminal investigation of Burisma Holdings Limited as well the investigation and potential prosecution of his son and Board Director Hunter Biden.

Various sections of the U.S. Code describe this official behavior as criminal and, therefore, subject to prosecution as well as disqualification to hold public office in the US government.  Given the extreme seriousness of his admitted crime and flagrant breach of the public trust, Democrat POTUS nominee is effectively barred from running for any public office in the land until this criminal matter is appropriately resolved.

… shall be fined under this title or not more than three times the monetary equivalent of the thing of value, whichever is greater, or imprisoned for not more than fifteen years, or both, and may be disqualified from holding any office of honor, trust, or profit under the United States.

      Yeah, no doubt. Plus he is senile. But remember obammie was NOT qualified under the same circumstance of violating the Constitution and he got rewarded with two FOOL terms.

      We have become totally lawless and corrupt and it seems a badge of honor to violate your Constitution and get the TOP yob. :twisted:

    • Болеслава

      That’s Trumps trump card. If Biden wins all he has to do is arrest him.

    • Dnutz

      Too bad this government was created by criminals for criminals to freely act as criminal overlords, and our “justice” system is their own possession to use against us regular people, and not to be used against them. Every president including Trump, was, and is a scumbag. Nothing will happen except you will become even more poor and less free by the minute, will the political class become billionaires off taxpayers dime.

    • Don - 1

      This Biden crime has been known for a long time. :roll: Its even on tape.

    • Arse

      So, one question remains. Why the hell is he not in jail?
