The Rich Zeoli Show- Full Episode (06/12/2024):

3:05pm- Could Joe Biden be replaced as the Democrat nominee for president? Yesterday, a jury in Wilmington, Delaware found Hunter Biden guilty on three felony charges related to lying on a background-check he submitted when acquiring a firearm in October of 2018. According to reports, the president’s son could face up to 25-years in prison and a fine up to $750,000. Could President Biden pardoning his son become the perfect excuse to step aside?

3:30pm- According to an election forecast model from The Economist, Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump has a 66-in-100 chance of beating President Joe Biden in the 2024 election. Similarly, The Hill believes Trump has a 56-in-100 chance of winning.

3:40pm- Anders Hagstrom of Fox News writes: “A fleet of Russian warships entered Cuban waters on Wednesday as they prepare to hold military drills in the Caribbean. The deployment is likely a warning to President Biden after he gave approval for Ukrainian forces to strike some targets within Russia using U.S. weaponry, according to Rebekah Koffler, strategic intelligence analyst and author of ‘Putin's Playbook.’ Russian President Vladimir Putin is telling Washington, ‘we can touch you,’ Koffler said.” You can read the full article here: https://www.foxnews.com/politics/putin-fleet-warships-cuba-direct-warning-biden-experts-say

4:05pm- Rich introduces a new assistant producer to the show: Andrew. Andrew admits he has never seen The Sopranos, BUT he has seen Breaking Bad. Plus, his favorite breakfast meat is turkey sausage…which enrages Rich! Who eats turkey sausage?!?!

4:20pm- Prior to the 2020 presidential election, former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, along with other high-ranking members of the intelligence community, signed a letter dismissing The New York Post’s Hunter Biden laptop story as Russian disinformation. The laptop has since been confirmed as being authentic—but Clapper recently stated he does not regret his decision.

4:30pm- Is The New York Times calling out President Joe Biden for lying? Linda Qiu writes: “In President Biden’s telling, he was a teenage civil rights activist, a former trucker, the first in his family to go to college and the nephew of a cannibalism victim. All of these claims stretch the truth or are downright false. But Mr. Biden persists in telling personal tales with rhetorical flourishes and factual liberty when he works a room or regales an audience.” You can read the full article here: https://www.nytimes.com/2024/06/09/us/politics/biden-history-fact-check.html
