Former Hunter Biden business associate Devon Archer testified to Congress behind closed doors on Monday, and his testimony provided evidence that implicated President Joe Biden in a bribery scheme in which foreign nationals paid the first son so that Joe's "brand" would save them from legal difficulties.

In a press statement after the testimony, House Oversight Chair James Comer summarized Archer's testimony as follows:

Devon Archer’s testimony today confirms Joe Biden lied to the American people when he said he had no knowledge about his son’s business dealings and was not involved. Joe Biden was “the brand” that his son sold around the world to enrich the Biden family. When Joe Biden was Vice President of the United States, he joined Hunter Biden’s dinners with his foreign business associates in person or by speakerphone over 20 times. When Burisma’s owner was facing pressure from the Ukrainian prosecutor investigating the company for corruption, Archer testified that Burisma executives asked Hunter to ‘call D.C.’ after a Burisma board meeting in Dubai.

Comer also said that pressure from Burisma executives to get Hunter Biden to "call D.C.," which he did, amounted to a violation of the FARA Act on Hunter's part because he never registered as a foreign agent.

Joe Biden eventually had prosecutor Viktor Shokin fired just as Shokin was investigating Burisma for corruption, as he has bragged about on video.

So not only is there a provable quid pro quo with Skokin, but also a "stream of services" that isn't necessarily explicit but is understood and shown through the many phone calls Hunter made that involved Joe as well.

Even if they can't prove Joe Biden got any money out of the deal, they can prove Hunter did, and that's enough for bribery under the law.
