Josh Mandel is a Republican seeking the party’s nomination to run for U.S. Senate in Ohio.

This week on the Breitbart News Daily podcast, Mandel asserted that Joe Biden is “personally [and] financially corrupted” by financial dealings undertaken by members of his family, including Hunter Biden and Biden’s brother. · Josh Mandel – December 16, 2021

Mandel slammed Biden, saying it is impossible for him to protect U.S. interests with the Chinese Communist regime while he appears to be compromised due to his family’s financial dealings with that country, as identified by Peter Schweizer, president of the Government Accountability Institute, memorialized in his book, Secret Empires: How the American Political Class Hides Corruption and Enriches Family and Friends.

Schweizer identified how five of Biden’s family members cashed in on his access as vice president, noting that these Biden relatives “didn’t get them [sweetheart deals] before he was vice president, they didn’t get them after he was vice president and the policy positions that Joe Biden took at the time that his family members were getting paid.”

In the podcast, Mandel noted that Biden is clearly corrupted.

“Let’s start with the fact that Biden is personally [and] financially corrupted,” Mandel said.

“He is, his son Hunter, probably his brother, the lobbyist, their finances are so intertwined and dependent on the Chinese Communist Party that he’s completely, completely conflicted. So let’s start out with that, that he’s not in any position to make the right decisions for the American people.”

He noted, for example that Biden’s actions on energy financially benefit not only China but also Russia under the guise of fighting so-called “climate change.” Mandel said that Biden’s attempts to throttle domestic fossil fuel development provides significant advantages to China and Russia at our country’s expense.

“[The Biden administration is] enabling oil and gas pipelines in Russia and leaning on OPEC while we’re sitting here in Ohio, in America, with an abundance of natural resources that he won’t let us drill and move,” Mandel said.

Mandel also slammed the Biden administration policies which he says are fueling inflation and undermining the U.S. economy by impoverishing Americans through the hidden tax of inflation.

Mandel noted Biden’s policies are “quadrupling inflation,” increasing prices at the pump and the grocery stores,” and “paying people to stay home and drink Mountain Dew and play Xbox with out tax money instead of actually getting people back to work.”

Mandel is among several Republicans vying for the seat being vacated by retiring Sen. Rob Portman (R-OH), including the author of Hillbilly Elegy J.D. Vance.
