"Do you think Elon Musk is a threat to national security? And should the U.S., with the tools that you have, investigate his joint acquisition of Twitter with foreign governments, which include the Saudis?" a reporter asked Biden Wednesday, referring to investments made by some foreign entities, including Prince Alwaleed bin Talal of Saudi Arabia, in his $44 billion buyout of Twitter.

Biden hesitated for a long time before replying, slowly, "I think ’that…Elon Musk’s…cooperation and/or…technical relationships with other countries, uh…is worthy of being looked at.

"Whether or not he’s doing anything inappropriate, I’m not suggesting that," he continued. "I’m suggesting that it’s worth being looked at. And uh…that’s…that’s all I’ll say.”

Which, frankly, is pretty rich coming from a guy who's been credibly accused of taking cuts off Hunter Biden’s illicit dealings with foreign businesses after abusing his power as Vice President to help his son make connections with high-profile people.

All of that, of course, based on evidence found on Hunter Biden’s laptop - a story summarily squashed by the same social media platform Musk just bought, in part, to counteract widespread censorship on the site.

Fortune reports that "Last month, people familiar with the matter said the Biden administration was discussing whether the US should subject some of Musk’s ventures to national security reviews, including his deal for Twitter Inc. and SpaceX’s Starlink satellite network." That news comes as leftists rage against the billionaire for purchasing the social media platform, long viewed as a stronghold for leftist propaganda.
