Republicans Press Forward Investigation Into Hunter Biden; Dept. of Treasury Is Reportedly Cooperating


Make no mistake folks, things are happening behind the scenes!

According to new reports, Republicans are moving forward with investigations into Hunter Biden and  the wheels of justice are turning.

Now that the impeachment hoax is over, Republican Senators Chuck Grassley (Iowa) and Ron Johnson (Wis.) have asked for the traven records of Joe Biden’s son.

The Hill reports:

As part of their request, the senators specifically want to know what sort of security detail Hunter Biden received while his father served as vice president, and a list of all dates and places Hunter Biden traveled with a protective detail.

They specifically want to know if he traveled on Air Force One or Air Force Two, the presidential and vice presidential aircraft, or on another government aircraft and whether additional family members were present for each trip.

It turns out that the Treasury Department is even cooperating with the investigation!

Look:

Trump promised he would look into corruption.

He ran on a platform of restoring transparency and integrity in government. He is dedicated to making a government that is for "we the people."

Republicans have every right to look into this issue.

If Hunter Biden has nothing to hide, then Democrats shouldn't be afraid of an honest investigation!

But wait.

There's more!

It's not just travel records that have been handed over. 

The National Review reports that the Treasury Department has also handed over financial records:

Senator Chuck Grassley, chair of the Finance Committee, and Senator Ron Johnson, chair of Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs, obtained the sensitive financial records as part of their continuing investigation into former vice president Joe Biden’s son’s possible conflicts of interest involving his lucrative position on the board of Ukrainian energy company Burisma Holdings.

Fox News had more:

The Treasury Department complied with a Republican-controlled Senate inquiry into Hunter Biden's business dealings in Ukraine and handed over highly sensitive financial records and "evidence of questionable origin," a report on Thursday said.

Biden, the son of former Vice President Joe Biden, has been a favorite target for President Trump and other Republicans who use him as an example of an extreme case of crony capitalism. He once held a $50,000-a-month job with Ukrainian gas giant, Burisima Holdings while his father served under then-President Obama. His father was tasked with handling Ukraine policy at the time.

Joe Biden, who is running for president, has consistently said his son did nothing wrong.

Yahoo News first reported that the Treasury Department began to turn over the documents related to the Senate inquiry late last year. 

Sens. Charles Grassley, R-Iowa, the chairman of the Senate Finance Committee, and Ron. Johnson, R-Wisc., the chairman of the Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, requested the records in the form of a suspicious activity report, also known as a SARs. They also requested financial records through FinCEN, which is a branch of the Treasury Department that eyes money laundering.

Sen. Ron Wyden, D-Ore., who sits on the Finance Committee, told Yahoo News that the swift response from Treasury is a "blatant double standard" considering how the Trump administration responded to Democrats' effort to obtain documents and witness testimony in his impeachment trial.

"The administration told House Democrats to go pound sand when their oversight authority was mandatory while voluntarily cooperating with the Senate Republicans’ sideshow at lightning speed," a spokesman from Wyden told the website.

Grassley refused to identify what information Treasury provided when reached by The New York Times, but said through a spokesman, "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 and Johnson announced in a letter Wednesday they are also seeking “records of Hunter Biden’s travel while he was under U.S. Secret Service protection as they continue to investigate potential conflicts of interest to boost his business ventures in Ukraine and China."

"We write to request information about whether Hunter Biden used government-sponsored travel to help conduct private business, to include his work for Rosemont Seneca and related entities in China and Ukraine," the senators wrote, referring to the company co-founded by the younger Biden.
