Fox News host Sean Hannity has once again mocked up a “crime family” graphic, this time targeting Democratic presidential hopeful Joe Biden.
The longtime confidante of President Donald Trump, who has addressed the ongoing impeachment inquiry numerous times on his show, on Monday night compared Biden and his allies to a mob family.
Bringing up a “crime family” graphic that has previously been used by Hannity to lambast former Special Counsel Robert Mueller, the Fox News host suggested that an “official criminal investigation” should be opened into the Bidens, Mediaite reported.
“This almost looks to me like a Biden criminal enterprise, but what do I know? Hannity said, suggesting, as Trump has done on numerous occasions, that Biden’s son improperly benefited in his business dealings from his father’s role as vice president of the U.S.
“There you have it, Biden, right at the top, the second most powerful person in the country. His son raking in millions of dollars from all over the world with no experience, the easy gig on the board of Burisma holdings—no other American is going to get that deal,” he continued.
Trump raised the subject of Biden and his son Hunter in a July phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy that is now the focus of the ongoing impeachment inquiry, and has since continued to make unfounded accusations against the Bidens.
“There’s a lot of talk about Biden’s son, that Biden stopped the prosecution and a lot of people want to find out about that so whatever you can do with the Attorney General would be great. Biden went around bragging that he stopped the prosecution so if you can look into it… It sounds horrible to me,” Trump said in the call, according to a summary transcript released by the White House.
Trump has suggested that Biden played a part in the dismissal of Ukraine’s top prosecutor Viktor Shokin in order to benefit his son Hunter, then a board member of Burisma holdings—whose owner was being investigated by Shokin.
Despite this accusation of corruption against Biden being discredited, Trump has continued to rally against the Bidens, with his friend Hannity following suit.
“Meanwhile the media mob, the willing accomplices stepping all over themselves trying to protect the Bidens,” Hannity said.
“For years they simply looked the other way, ignored this massive scandal, just like they always protected the Clintons and for months now, they have been trying to cover it all up, telling us all ‘It’s unproven conspiracy theory—there’s no evidence of any wrongdoing.’ American people are smarter,” he added.
