David Richter, former CEO of Hill International, is running as a Republican to unseat Rep. Jeff Van Drew in New Jersey’s second congressional district.
Van Drew, formerly a Democrat, recently announced his switch to the Republican Party, citing his unwillingness to vote for President Trump’s impeachment, and his distaste for the Democratic Party’s increasing Leftism.
You can find a fair number of reports about Richter’s past. But none do him justice. Why? Because he was a central figure in 2020 Democratic presidential frontrunner Joe Biden’s sordid dealings in the recent past.
And as I wrote here at the War Room just days ago:
Joe Biden’s track-record of wheeling and dealing is more than what journalists, congressional investigative bodies, and even President Trump have made of it.
[In June of 2011] HillStone International, a relatively new homebuilding concern, landed a $1,500,000,000 contract to build homes in Iraq.
Vice President Biden’s brother, James Biden, had landed an executive position at HillStone just months earlier.
The Bidens denied it, but David Richter, president of HillStone’s parent company Hill International, was very forthcoming about the value he saw in taking James Biden onboard as Executive Vice President of Hillstone’s housing development in November 2010.
According to a person who was present, Richter told a group of investors that it really helped to have “the brother of the vice president as a partner.”
It’s not just that David Richter is a longtime Democratic donor and Trump critic–although he is.
It’s not just that Richter worked with Joe Biden, the current Democratic frontrunner against President Trump, and then had the gall to present himself as a Republican congressional candidate and Trump loyalist–although he did.
And it’s not just that Richter’s collusion with the Biden family was the worst possible kind: a business deal designed to enrich American Democrats at the expense of those most hurt by the Obama-Biden administration’s disastrous and destructive foreign policy that displaced millions of Iraqi civilians–although it was.
It’s that, after all that sordid history, Richter the war-profiteer and Biden stalking-horse has chosen to target and attempt to unseat Jeff Van Drew, the one man with the integrity to cross party lines for Trump.
And that’s why I’m writing this. I’m writing this for David Richter. I’m writing to give him this advice:
David, you should drop out immediately. You won’t win anyway, and it’s better than nothing to slink away from the public eye now, before your family’s blood money is exposed to everyone you lied to. Not just in New Jersey, but throughout the country.
And here’s hoping Joe Biden does the same soon after.
