"Well, for one thing, po, if the report is true, Joe lied on his taxes. It's a matter of simple arithmetic." --HtS
I believe you are suggesting that Biden didn't declare $50K per quarter in income. The most likely scenario is that Joe Biden had leased space in the Swedish Embassy building for $50K per quarter perhaps intending it for whatever he might have done after his life in politics. Maybe Joe considered practicing law, starting a foundation or being a lobbyist.
Plans change and he ran for and was elected president. So he didn't need the space. He rented the space out to his son for what he paid. That's not income.
On another issue: Being a critical thinker includes being able to discern reliable news reports from bullshit.
"Citing" MSN.com is like citing Google News or citing The SelectSmart.com Post as your "source". Those two websites like this one are news aggregators. We don't do original reporting. Like MSN, when anyone here on this site posts about any news story, it's really saying "so-so news organization reports that..." not that SelectSmart.com is confirming it.
In fact below every article posted here, there is this caveat, "The views and claims expressed by contributors are their own and do not necessarily reflect the views and beliefs of SelectSmart.com. Not every statement made here can be assumed to be a fact." I also include a place for "Cited and related links:".
MSN.com and Google News probably have an advanced algorithms to select the stories they publish. On this site you, the members here, choose the stories you post. Below our masthead it says "comments posted organically". There is a subtle joke there. The top of this page says "The SelectSmart.com Post" Said aloud that's The SelectSmart Compost. Get it? Compost is organic.

Curt, it was Hunter Biden who rented the office space for the company he co-founded.
The only thing that attached Joe Biden to any of this, apparently, is certain aspects of DNA that the two men share.
