    The Facts

    • Devon Archer, a former business partner of Hunter Biden, was sentenced to a year in prison for his role in a scheme to defraud Native American tribes.

    • Archer was also ordered to pay over $15 million in forfeited assets as part of an effort to reclaim some of the $60 million in bonds that was fraudulently bought from the Oglala Sioux Tribe of South Dakota.

    The Spin

    Right narrative

    Hunter Biden may not be involved in this latest scheme, but he and Archer have been plotting corrupt deals with government-aligned and sanctioned foreign entities from Ukraine, China, and Kazakhstan for years. It's all revealed in the emails on Hunter's laptop, evidence that the mainstream media continues to ignore.

    Left narrative

    Trumpist right wing media outlets are once again trotting out Hunter Biden as supposed evidence of the corruption of the Biden family and the Democratic Party. But there's a difference between actual crime and shady behavior, and Hunter so far has only partaken in the latter. The biggest claim against the Biden family is nepotism, and let's admit the truth: this runs deep in Trumpland too.
