Why Voters See Crooks in All Corners of Politics

From a Wall Street Journal story by Annie Linskey and Simon J. Levien headlined “Why Voters See Crooks in All Corners of Politics”:

When news broke this past week that presidential son Hunter Biden reached a plea deal for tax and firearm offenses, congressional Republicans called for a wider investigation to root out corruption in President Biden’s family.

Their desire for deep scrutiny arrived exactly a week after former President Donald Trump appeared in a federal courtroom in Miami and pleaded not guilty to charges that he illegally kept classified national-security documents after leaving the White House. That added to a string of legal woes Democrats are using to discredit the leading 2024 GOP presidential contender, including charges tied to porn-star hush-money payments and a Georgia investigation into potential 2020 election interference.
