ANALYSIS – It now appears that despite a politically motivated Big Media blackout on the important story, Big Tech censorship, and a coordinated Democrat-led disinformation campaign trying to blame it all on Russia, Hunter Biden’s shady business deals with China, Russia, Ukraine, et al., are in fact real.
Not only that, but they have been under federal criminal investigation since at least 2018.
This new development regarding Biden’s seemingly illicit business dealings with foreign governments during his father’s time as vice president again raises serious national security concerns about Joe Biden. It also highlights the media’s biased role in covering it all up.
Questions about the presumptive president-elect’s involvement in, or knowledge of, his son’s dealings will now again take center stage. If Joe Biden did know of his son’s dealings and lied, or worse, he benefited from those dealings, that poses a significant national security risk.
The Wall Street Journal reported Wednesday that, as his father prepares for a possible presidential administration, Hunter Biden, the son of President-elect Joe Biden, acknowledged in a deliberately misleading manner that the U.S. attorney’s office in Delaware is “investigating my tax affairs.”
The investigation was reportedly sparked in part by reports of suspicious activity filed by a bank that handled foreign transactions related to Hunter Biden, noted WSJ. A spokeswoman at the U.S. attorney’s office in Delaware declined to comment, citing DOJ policy regarding ongoing investigations.
The investigation had apparently been kept secret, in part following new FBI guidelines about not influencing elections.
However, Politico reported that the investigation “has been more extensive than a statement from Hunter Biden indicates,” to include “potential money laundering and Hunter Biden’s foreign ties.” Tax evasion and related issues are often tied to persons who have received large sums of foreign money under suspicious circumstances and try to hide the source of the income.
Hunter Biden’s laptop surfaced as a major smoking gun in the final weeks of the presidential election but was aggressively suppressed by Big Media and Big Tech.
Even news of a U.S. Senate supplemental report confirming Hunter’s ties to China were suppressed, including my post and article on the issue on LinkedIn.
Reports in the New York Post, based on the contents of Biden’s computer hard drive, including emails from Hunter, strongly suggested that Biden repeatedly traded on his father’s position as vice president to make hundreds of thousands of dollars, or more, from foreign sources, including China and Russia.
Some information from Hunter’s emails indicates that Joe Biden was secretly offered, or received, funds from these activities, referencing “10% for the big guy.”
But, as Byron York at The Washington Examiner notes:
The media reaction was to suppress the story and attack the New York Post. In some media circles, the laptop story became The Thing That Cannot Be Said. Facebook limited access to it. Twitter froze the New York Post’s account. Many top media organizations simply buried the story. Now, we know that law enforcement examined the laptop, although it is not clear whether its contents have contributed to the current investigation. But the fact that investigators inspected the laptop is part of the story.
It is time to finally launch a full-scale independent investigation by a special prosecutor into Hunter Biden’s illicit ties to China, Russia, Ukraine, and other countries while Joe Biden was vice president.
It is also imperative to determine once and for all how much Joe Biden knew, and when he knew it. And while we are at it, we should investigate Big Tech and Big Media for election interference. American national security is at stake.
