In other words....don't get caught.
President Joe Biden told his younger brother Frank during the recent election campaign to ''watch yourself'' in regard to his business dealings and not ''get sucked into something,'' Politico reported, citing an unidentified source.
''For Christ’s sake, watch yourself,'' Biden said, according to Politico’s source ''with knowledge of the conversation.'' ''Don’t get sucked into something that would, first of all, hurt you.''
Politico did not say when during the campaign the conversation took place.
The revelation follows reports of Frank Biden promoting his relationship with his more famous brother in an advertisement for the Berman Law Group of Boca Raton, Florida, where Frank Biden serves as non-attorney senior adviser. The ad was printed in the Jan. 20 edition of the Daily Business Review, also based in Florida.
It also comes amid unanswered questions regarding the business dealings of Biden’s 50-year-old son Hunter and brother James.
Statements by the 78-year-old Joe Biden, the eldest among himself and three siblings, that he had no knowledge of his son’s business dealings appear at odds with emails obtained from a laptop abandoned by Hunter Biden at a computer repair store in Delaware.
The emails, which suggested influence peddling, were bolstered by statements by Tony Bobulinski, Hunter Biden’s ex-business partner who said Joe Biden was well aware of his son’s activities.
Politico’s source said Joe Biden’s tone in the conversation with his brother Frank was ''jocular and serious.''
