  • Hunter Biden corruption investigation underway in the Senate

    ​​
    Senate Finance Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley and Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee Chairman Ron Johnson asked the treasury in November for "suspicious activity reports," banking alerts involving money laundering or fraud, related to Biden and his associates.

    A spokeswoman for Sen. Ron Wyden, the ranking Democrat on the Senate Finance Committee, told Yahoo News that the department has already started turning over records. The Wyden spokeswoman criticized the Treasury Department for "rapidly complying" with the requests, calling the Republican-led Senate investigation of Biden a "sideshow.”

    “Applying a blatant double standard, Trump administration agencies like the Treasury Department are rapidly complying with Senate Republican requests — no subpoenas necessary — and producing ‘evidence’ of questionable origin,” said Wyden spokeswoman Ashley Schapitl.

    A spokesman for Grassley said he could not elaborate on what the records contained at this time but criticized Democrats for "recklessly" seeking to interfere with the investigation.

    "As a matter of routine, we don’t discuss sensitive third-party material during ongoing investigations. It’s unfortunate that Democrats whom we’ve kept in the loop on our investigations would recklessly seek to interfere with legitimate government oversight," Grassley's spokesman Taylor Foy told the Washington Examiner.

    Grassley's and Johnson's committees have been investigating whether the Obama administration took official action to help the business interests of Biden while his father, Joe Biden, was vice president. The Republican senators asked the treasury's Financial Crimes Enforcement Network for suspicious activity reports involving Hunter Biden, his business partner Devon Archer, their firm Rosemont Seneca Partners, the Ukrainian oil company Burisma Holdings, and other related companies and individuals. In the letter, they asked the department to turn over the records by Dec. 5, 2019.

    Banks and financial institutions are required to file "suspicious activity reports" when they notice unusual transactions that could indicate illegal activities such as money laundering, terror financing, or fraud.

    A spokesperson for Johnson did not respond to request for comment. On Wednesday, Grassley and Johnson also requested Hunter Biden's official travel records from the U.S. Secret Service.

      Hillary Clinton may have been right about one thing, they’ll all hang.

      Money laundering to fund a proxy war.

            lol

            This is hilarious. The Democrat paid for a dossier full of lies; launched a fruitless investigation that went on for years and delivered virtually nothing of any worth to anybody; put the nation through a ham-fisted impeachment trial that they rushed through; and then when oversight into actual open corruption begins, it's so very "banana republic."

            Hunter Biden is a pinata that is going to spill corruption all over the place. This will start with Hunter, but it won't end with him.

              That's interesting. I'm not a big Glenn Beck guy. I find him to be controlled opposition, but this is definitely eyebrow raising.

              The problem with Beck is he covers up for McCain and Graham, who are both thick in Ukrainian corruption. Doing a Ukranian study in corruption without mentioning those two is like doing a study on the Mystery Gang and not mentioning Scooby Doo and Shaggy.

                This is not a question of IF there was corruption in Ukraine. There was corruption in Ukraine.

                This is a question of who has concrete shoes and who has made deals to walk free.

                It's pretty clear that Lindsey Graham has made deals to walk free.

                      lol

                      A crack head flunkie who failed out of the military is suddenly doing billion dollar gas deals and you think there's "nothing there?"

                      Hunter Biden is not Hillary. Joe Biden is not Hillary.

                        The PrivatBank > Kolomoisky > Burisma connection is interesting. Especially if Biden and Kerry helped to setup the Ukrainian bank bailout in which all the funds went to PrivatBank....then disappeared along with 7 billion belonging to the IMF. The Latvian money laundering report is damning.

                        The IMF stalled funding to Ukraine because of corruption concerns during the exact same time period in which the Trump administration stalled fund transfers.

                        If this is all true, heads will roll. Biden Jr. was Kolomoisky’s insurance policy.

                            Ukrainian Oligarch Paid $700,000 To The Husband Of A House Judiciary Committee Democrat

                            “Robert Powell, the husband of Rep. Debbie Mucarsel-Powell, D-Fla., reportedly took $700,000 from a Ukrainian oligarch named Igor Kolomoisky. Mucarsel-Powell sits on the House Judiciary Committee, the committee that drafted two articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump for his alleged abuse of power with regards to Ukraine.”

                              They can't deal with the pain of living in a world that doesn't match their perceptions or their claims, so they create an "alternative facts" world of make-believe and live in it.


                              Trump’s Big Lie About Joe Biden, Hunter Biden and Ukraine Falls Apart

                              In pushing to oust the former prosecutor, Biden did the right thing, no matter the personal cost.

                              The facts behind Trump’s bogus accusations about Biden and Ukraine

                              Trump claims Biden threatened Ukraine to aid his son’s business interests. The facts suggest otherwise.
