Luft indictment strengthens Republicans' corruption case against Biden family, Comer says

The media has been crowing about the indictment of whistleblower Gal Luft on Monday, saying that it undermines or discredits Republicans' corruption case against the Biden family, but the opposite is actually true.

Luft is calling himself a fall guy, and he skipped bail in Cyprus before he could be extradited to the U.S., so he is a fugitive.

The main complaint against Luft is that he didn't register as a foreign agent under FARA while he was selling Chinese weapons to UAE, Kenya and Libya, but he and Republicans point out that he wasn't getting paid nearly as much as Hunter Biden was, and Biden didn't register as a foreign agent either.

Instead of making Republicans' case weaker, Luft's indictment actually strengthens the narrative that the FBI and DOJ were dragging their feet and soft-pedaling the investigation into Hunter Biden and the Biden family.

“The Justice Department went after him [Luft] while Hunter Biden received more money from the same foreign CEFC company than this informant did. Much more,” House Speaker Kevin McCarthy said when asked about the situation. “So, it only made the case stronger that the government really didn’t look into Hunter Biden.”

Is that what Biden and his DOJ are going to do every time someone accuses him and his family of wrongdoing -- indict them? That's going to be a very long list.
