The mainstream media fact checkers claim there is ‘no credible evidence’ that Joe BIden played a role in his family’s business activities overseas, but that claim is LUDICROUS, Peter Schweizer tells Glenn. In fact, Schweizer — a Biden family expert and author of ‘Red Handed’ — tells Glenn there is a CLEAR impeachment case against the president because of his involvement. In this clip, Schweizer details to Glenn the undeniable evidence against Joe. Plus, he predicts what could happen to the Republican Party if they take control of Congress next year and STILL fail to hold those involved in the Biden family scandals responsible…

GLENN: Peter Schweizer is joining us now. He is with the government accountability institute. He's the president. Also, the author of red-handed, and the co-host of the drilldown.
Peter, how are you?
PETER: I'm great, Glenn. Always terrific to be with you. Thanks for having me.
GLENN: You bet. So I don't even know where to begin on this. Can we start with the Tony Bobulinski thing?
PETER: Sure. Absolutely.
GLENN: PolitiFact. We investigated the claims of Tony Bobulinski, a former business partner of Hunter Biden on Fox News this week. There is no credible evidence that Joe Biden played a role in his family foreign business activities.
PETER: Yeah. It's -- it's pretty remarkable. PolitiFact is saying that. When Hunter Biden has acknowledged that his dad played a role. Joe Biden has acknowledged that he played a role. James Biden, who is Joe Biden's brother, acknowledges that his brother played a role. And, of course, you have in black and white, the communications that Tony Bobulinski, released and turned over to the FBI, that shows Joe Biden's playing a role. So this is another example of these fact-checking organizations, digging their own graves.
They have zero credibility. And they're going to die on this hill. Which let them do it. It just means that people take them less seriously, than they do already.
GLENN: So help me out. Give me some -- of give me some of the hard evidence, that shows that Joe was absolutely involved.
PETER: Well, first of all, you have the communications, and the communications specifically say, that Joe Biden was involved. And so what does that mean?
Well, they would make -- they would have conversations, and Hunter would refer to the big guy.
And Tony Bobulinski has released these messages, would contact the other business partners. Would bring them into deal with the Bidens. And in the communications, he would say, who is the big guy?
And they would say, who is the big guy? And they would say, that's Joe Biden. They're very sensitive about it. So it was acknowledged that way.
You have the communications about the so-called SPC deal. This is the Chinese energy company, with Chairman Yi that Tony was brought into.
You have the 10 percent for the big guy. Well, the big guy is the word that was used in all the other communications, for talking about Joe Biden.
So that's all explicit in Tony Bobulinski's communications. You have communications from Hunter Biden on the laptop, that have been released. There's ones where they wanted to do business deals overseas.
And Hunter Biden texted his business partners and said, I run by my dad. And my dad is going to help.
To me, it's patently ludicrous, to even be arguing and discussing about this anymore. You can have a conversational about how deeply he was involved, and I would argue, it's pretty deep.
You could have a conversation, that says, well, I don't think he was really knowing everything that's going on.
But the notion that Joe Biden was ignorant of all of this. That he didn't know anything about it. That he didn't benefit financially.
That's a big settlement. It's not settled by Peter Schweizer or Tony Bobulinski.
It's settled by the actual communications, where there's Hunter's laptop, or the communications, that Tony Bobulinski had with Hunter and with his business partners.
GLENN: Do you think there's enough evidence that it is a clear, almost open-and-shut case, for impeachment?
PETER: I do, yes. And I do think, on a couple of levels.
First of all, let's remember, this is about corruption. But it's about something, I would argue, that is even more troubling and damaging than that.
And this is, I hope, what will be the point number one, if the Republicans take the house and investigate the subpoena Hunter Biden. Point number one needs to be not just that they got this some $31 million from these Chinese entities. But who were the actual businessmen that sent the money.
Chairman Yi of CEFC has direct ties to Chinese intelligence. Again, it's not debatable. You looked at his bio. You look at who you worked for. He was linked to Chinese intelligence. You look at other money that was transferred.
There was a gentleman who transferred $5 million to Hunter Biden. He was at the exact same time, business partners with the vice minister of the ministry of state security, whose job was recruiting foreigners to spy on China.
PETER: So to me, Glenn, the question is, corruption, absolutely. The question is, explain to me, Hunter Biden and Joe Biden, how your family -- it's not just Hunter. Your family got $31 million from four Chinese businessmen, with links to Chinese intelligence.
You did no discernible service in return. And what did the Chinese get out of the deal? They did not send you $31 million, because they think you're nice guys. That should be issue number one. This is a question of compromise -- kompromat, as they used to say in the Cold War. And that they question foreign intelligence penetration of the First Family of the United States. That's issue number one, as far as I'm concerned.
GLENN: All right. I want to switch topics, and I want to go with what senator -- I mean, what secretary Granholm said. We have to make this happen for our own energy independence and national security. She's talking about getting America off of, quote, Russian nuclear supplies.
I'm going to talk to Peter about that. Give me 60 seconds. We'll be back in the conversation.

GLENN: Russia's dominance in the global nuclear fuel market, presents a massive challenge for Washington.
Secretary of Energy, Jennifer Granholm said, President Biden is redoubling his efforts to break the U.S. reliance on Russian nuclear fuel.
Indicating domestic uranium enrichment capacity, could be increased with upcoming key legislation. We're going to get congressional support in a bipartisan way for us to make our own fuel supply cycle chain, independent.
Certainly, independent of Russia.
We have to make this happen for our own independence. And for our national security.
Peter, what's the problem with that story?
What -- what is missing in that story?
PETER: Well, what's missing in that story, Glenn. Is one of the big reasons, that we are so dependent on Russian uranium now.
And let's remember, when the Biden administration said, we're not going to take any Russian oil. Because of their invasion of Ukraine, they excluded cutting off the supply of Russian uranium. Because we're so dependent on it. So how did we get this state?
One of the reasons is this deal, we talked about on your program, several years ago. Uranium one.
This was a nuclear uranium company, that was initially controlled by a Canadian, named Frank Giustra, who was a big Bill Clinton donor.
And they went over to Kazakhstan, to meet with President Nasir, the head of that country.
And said, look, we want to buy all these lucrative minds that you have. Producing uranium in your country. Give them to us. I'm a Canadian. This is a former president of the United States.
And we'll take good care of it. Just to adopt those minds. Purchase them. Paid some hundred million dollars to the Clinton Foundation, for Bill showing up.
Here's the problem: Giustra then flipped and sold those mines, as well as minds that he controlled in the United States. To who?
To Rosatom, the Soviet state-owned uranium company, that now dominates the market. So we have a situation, where part of the reason, that we are so dependent on Russian uranium. Part of the reason, they've been able to almost effectively corner the global market. Is because -- is because Bill Clinton helped facilitate this deal, that gave Russia control over uranium minds in the United States.
But even more importantly, some of the most powerful and lucrative, and proficient uranium minds in Kazakhstan.
And that is why we're over a barrel today.
Frank juster made a lot of money in the deal.
Bill Clinton, and Clinton made a lot of money in the deal. The problem is the American people got screwed, because it enhanced our dependence on Russian uranium. And that's where we are today.
GLENN: And if I'm not mistaken, because it's been a while since I've looked at this story.
It was all kind of done hush, hush. Just kind of rushed through the committees. It should have never gone through.
Because it is a -- a national risk, to put everything there.
And Hillary Clinton said, oh. I didn't. I didn't. I wasn't involved in this at all. I don't know.
I just know that the government found that it wouldn't be putting our government at risk. And our nation at risk. So, you know, we're going to go through with it.
Didn't this story happen something like that?
PETER: Yeah. Yeah. So this deal, the sale of uranium one, which was an American uranium company to the Russian state-owned company. Rosatom, required approval by the federal government body and the Obama administration called CFIUS, the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States.
And you would think, this is a pretty big deal, right?
Are we really going to put Putin in charge of all this uranium?
The deal went through quickly.
Hillary Clinton of course has a seat on CFIUS. She claims she doesn't remember anything about it. And you have all these other actors of the Clinton era. And some currently of the Biden administration, that were involved. Involved, Glenn.
So remember John Podesta, who was an adviser to the Clintons. His brother Tony Podesta, was actually a lobbyist, for uranium one. On these kinds of deals.
You had John Podesta himself, that was involved in energy companies, that were backed by Russian-state owned firms.
Joe Biden's current energy envoy, who is negotiating some of these deals involving oil and uranium. This guy named Amos Hawkseen (phonetic), he was a lobbyist for a Russian company called Tenex.
PETER: Which is basically a sister company for Uranium One.
If you look at Jake Sullivan. Jake Sullivan, who, of course, is the current national security advisor, signed off on Bill Clinton.
When all these deals were going down, Russian entities are paying Bill Clinton inflated speaking fees. Half a million dollars a pop. Who was approving those deals?
A guy named Jake Sullivan, who now happens to be a national security adviser for Joe Biden.
So this is a problem, where, it's not just something for the past. It's something that involves decision makers in the present too.
GLENN: I have to tell you, it's so frustrating. And I think it is for the average person.
You know, any of this stuff would happen with me or you. We would all be in jail.
The Clinton Foundation is so incredibly transparent on its corruption. You know, it goes away when Trump is in office. Just goes away. No. We're shutting it down.
And then lo and behold. Biden gets in. We're opening it up again. Open for business.
All of the people -- I mean, you're either committed to helping people, or you're committed to making money.
And brokering deals. And it is so transparent. Is this thing ever going to be taken care of?
PETER: It's hard to know. I mean, part of the problem, Glenn, as you know, you study Washington. All this time, as I have.
There's ways to do corrupt things in Washington, that are profoundly corrupt.
If you do them the wrong way, you're going to jail. If you're doing them the right way, you can get away with it. So we're dealing with very smart people, who hire very high priced lawyers, to dance around and create subterfuge for what they're really doing.
To give it an air, or veneer, in my mind, of legality. So that's part of the problem with you have inherently.
I think the ultimate solution here is shame and exposure.
And the hope that that is going to lead to actual criminal investigation.
And I think look, coming up in November. We're going to have these elections. The balance of the House of Representatives, and Senate, is in question. And my point is, you have to have independent bodies that are prepared to bring out, what information we know. To hold Hunter Biden to account. It's very clear, the FBI is not going to hold Hunter Biden to account. They're not going to investigate Uranium One.
So it means we have to have congressional committees, with subpoena power doing it.
That's only going to happen, if the Republicans have the majority in the House and Senate.
So a lot of these matters hang in the balance, as to who will be controlling Congress. After the November elections.
GLENN: I just hope there's enough in there, that are not corrupt. That, you know -- they're not -- they're not being blackmailed, to not get involved, or just are like, I'm sitting on the sidelines. Because I don't want my name being brought up at all.
You know, I fear that could happen easily.
PETER: Yeah. And, Glenn, here's the thing. A lot of people are talking about this right now. If we retake the House. We're going to investigate X, Y, and Z. If they fail to do that, that to me, will be the dagger in the heart, basically. Of the Republican Party. And of conservatives.
Because people are fed up with the lip service being paid to -- we're going to hold them into account.
So that's really, I think where the stakes are. And you're quite right.
Just because somebody says, they're going to do it in Washington, you're going to pay a price.
If you start dredging up. And start talking about Chinese deals, involving the first family of the United States.
A lot of other stuff is going to come to the fore. And there's a lot of people on powerful positions on the Republican side, who don't want that to happen, either.
So that's why we have to hold their feet to the fire. I know you've done that. That's what I'm hoping to do. And let's hope the people listening, are prepared to do that.
And let the elected officials know. This matters to them. And this is of profound importance.
GLENN: I've told many officials in Washington, DC, that are Republicans.
I said, you guys have one more shot. This is it. This is it.
If you win the House, and especially if you win the House and the Senate and you aren't standing up and protecting the American people and the Constitution and putting bad guys on trial, and then, cleaning up the FBI and Justice Department, so they can actually put them in jail, if you're not doing that, you are absolutely done. Just like you said. The last chance.
I'm glad to hear you believe that too.
PETER: Absolutely. Thanks, Glenn. It's always good to be with you.
GLENN: Peter Schweizer. The author of red-handed. And the co-host of the podcast, The Drilldown. Peter Schweizer, president of the Government Accountability Institute.
Wouldn't it be nice, if we had government accountability?
We can bring it back. Vote! Get out and vote.
