This whole Hunter Biden business just keeps getting shadier and shadier.
First we find out he’s getting paid $50,000 a month by a Ukranian company for basically doing nothing.
Then we find out he’s had investment deals with the Chinese government.
Now, it’s been unearthed that his investment firm received a $3.5 million wire transfer from a Russian billionaire!
Check out the news on the latest revelation from the New York Post:
Hunter Biden received a $3.5 million wire transfer from Elena Baturina, the richest woman in Russia and the widow of Yury Luzhkov, the former mayor of Moscow, Senate Republicans revealed in their report on the younger Biden’s work in Ukraine.
Baturina is referenced in the 87-page report, which was released Wednesday, addressing her payment to Biden’s investment firm in early 2014.
“Baturina became Russia’s only female billionaire when her plastics company, Inteko, received a series of Moscow municipal contracts while her husband was mayor,” it said in providing background on the businesswoman.
The report described her involvement with Biden as “a financial relationship,” but declined to delve deeper into why the wire transfer was made.
The probe also found that Baturina sent 11 wires transfers between May and December 2015 to a bank account belonging to BAK USA, a tech startup that filed for bankruptcy in March 2019.
Nine of those 11 wire transfers were first sent to Rosemont Seneca Partners, the investment firm founded by Biden and Chris Heinz, stepson of former Secretary of State John Kerry, before being transferred to BAK USA.
All 11 transactions described the payments as “Loan Agreement” in the details section.
The report reads, “[B]etween May 6, 2015 and Dec. 8, 2015, Baturina sent 11 wires in the amount of $391,968.21 to a bank account belonging to BAK USA LLC (BAK USA). Nine of the 11 transactions, totaling $241,797.14 were sent from Baturina’s accounts to a Rosemont Seneca Thornton bank account, which then transferred to the money to BAK USA. The 11 transactions all listed ‘Loan Agreement’ in the payment details section.
The only description for these payments being “loan agreement”?
That reeks of corruption!
We need to get to the bottom of why Hunter Biden got all this money.
A firestorm started on Twitter over the news:
If you think we're going to get any answers from Joe Biden, think again.
Check out his angry response when asked about his son by a reporter:
Isn't that just great?
This man wants us to elect him President, but he won't answer any questions about his son's potentially corrupt dealings with foreign governments and companies.
Fox News reports that Biden was briefed by federal officials that his son's involvement with the Ukranian company may be a bad idea:
Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden has "not spoken accurately about his knowledge of his son's involvement in Burisma" or the problem it caused for the Obama administration, Fox News contributor Molly Hemingway said Wednesday night.
Reacting to the mainstream media and Democrats downplaying the report by two U.S. Senate committees on Hunter Biden's overseas dealings while his father was vice president, the Federalist senior editor said there is "truly breaking news" in the report.
"While this is focused on Hunter Biden and James Biden and other family members of Joe Biden, not Joe Biden himself, it is also true that Joe Biden was revealed to have not spoken accurately about his knowledge of his son’s involvement in Burisma, the Ukrainian energy concern," Hemingway told "Fox News @ Night."
The Democratic nominee "said he didn’t know about it when the report shows that in fact, some bureaucrats were so concerned about Hunter Biden’s role that they had briefed him, that they had alerted the FBI," she said.
The 87-page report states, "in October 2015, senior State Department official Amos Hochstein raised concerns with Vice President Biden, as well as with Hunter Biden, that Hunter Biden’s position on Burisma’s board enabled Russian disinformation efforts and risked undermining U.S. policy in Ukraine."
Hemingway points out "It did cause a problem during the Obama Administration that there was this conflict of interest. It was not dealt with and we again are still awaiting answers as to exactly all the problems that caused."
She rejected the media's claims there was no evidence of wrongdoing by Hunter Biden, "who has no known skill set that would put him in a position to be doing business with foreign leaders," in dealings with Russia and China.
Republicans need to push this issue and stay vigilant.
The public deserves to know what the Biden family is really up to.
