            by Christopher Gage  Last year Joe Biden made it crystal clear that his son Hunter’s myriad business dealings were not a topic of conversation between father and son. When Peter Doocy, a Fox News reporter, asked the former vice president about Hunter’s business deals, the elder Biden replied: “I have never spoken to my son about his overseas business dealings.” He continued: “I know Trump deserves to be investigated. He is violating every basic norm of a president. You should be asking him why he is on the phone with a foreign leader, trying to intimidate a foreign leader. You should be looking at Trump.” Yet, a report released by Senate Republicans on Wednesday detailed the web of foreign...
    Donald Trump is planning to launch a vicious attack on Hunter Biden, the son of Democratic candidate Joe Biden, at the first presidential debate. The president has not been shy in taking aim at the only surviving son of the former vice president, claiming without evidence that Hunter Biden was engaged in corruption in Ukraine an had improper financial dealings with China. This even led to Trump’s impeachment last year after his efforts to press Ukraine into launching an investigation of the Bidens. As The Daily Mail reported (via the Washington Post), he plans to continue the attack on the debate stage in Cleveland when the candidates meet for the first time next Tuesday. The report noted that some of...
    Peter Schweizer, president of the Government Accountability Institute and author of Profiles in Corruption: Abuse of Power by America’s Progressive Elite, called for Senate Republicans to subpoena Hunter Biden to investigate financial dealings with foreign interests, offering his recommendation on Thursday’s edition of SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Daily with host Alex Marlow. Schweizer reflected on a report released on Wednesday from the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs entitled, “Hunter Biden, Burisma, and Corruption: The Impact on U.S. Government Policy and Related Concerns.” Schweizer said the report corroborated much of his own research into the Biden family’s financial ties to foreign interests, including the Chinese government and Ukrainian oligarchs. “[The Senate] actually got access to Treasury Department reports on suspicious...
    President Donald Trump is preparing to unleash vicious lines of attack in the first debate with Joe Biden, according to a new report, leaving some Democrats fearful that their nominee will be unprepared to counter. The first of three presidential debates is scheduled to take place at 9pm ET in Cleveland, and promises to be a wild night of spirited arguments, and likely personal attacks. While Biden has been in seclusion diligently preparing for the debate, Trump has largely eschewed traditional prep, instead pulling advisors aside on the fly to test out different lines of attack, according to a detailed report on Friday from the Washington Post.  Because Biden has largely avoided hostile settings in recent months, and reportedly plans...

    Among the deluge of explosive claims tucked inside the new Senate Republican report about Hunter Biden’s business dealings is the allegation that the Democratic presidential nominee’s son has a history of paying Russian or Eastern European women linked to sex trafficking. While the 87-page report, which was released on Wednesday, provided few specific details regarding the allegation, it pointed to a number of Russian- and Ukrainian-connected transactions. “Hunter Biden paid nonresident women who were nationals of Russia or other Eastern European countries and who appear to be linked to an ‘Eastern European prostitution or human trafficking ring,’” read the report from the Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs and Finance Committees.

    Scott Olson/Getty Images President Donald Trump is reportedly preparing to hit Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden in their first debate together over allegations that he used his former position as vice president to facilitate misconduct by his son, Hunter Biden. “Trump has told associates he wants to talk specifically about his opponent’s son Hunter Biden and mused that the debates are when ‘people will finally realize Biden is just not there,'” according to an unnamed Trump adviser who spoke with The Washington Post. The Senate Homeland Security and Finance Committees on Wednesday issued an interim report on an investigation into the junior Biden’s role on the board of Ukrainian energy firm Burisma Holdings. The report found, in part, that he had...

    Eric Trump and Donald Trump Jr. would never get away with Hunter Biden’s alleged graft and corruption detailed in a new U.S. Senate report, Lara Trump told The Kyle Olson Show this week. Hunter Biden allegedly received a $3.5 million wire transfer from the wife of the former mayor of Moscow, Russia, Breitbart News reported. “It’s so laughable to see how the mainstream media has just sort of bypassed this whole thing,” Trump said in a segment that will air on Saturday. “If any member of the Trump family had not just received a wire transfer but taken $2 from the wife of the former mayor of Moscow, believe me, it would be headline news; it would be splashed...
    On Thursday’s broadcast of the Fox News Channel’s “Bill Hemmer Reports,” Breitbart News senior contributor and Government Accountability Institute President Peter Schweizer stated that the interim report by the Senate Homeland Security and Finance Committees on Hunter Biden’s dealings reveals “major holes” in Joe Biden’s claim that he never talked to his son about his business dealings. Host Bill Hemmer asked, “So, what Joe Biden has said, he’s on the record as saying he’s never talked to his son about that. … Is it a fact that he never spoke to his son? Can we say that?” Schweizer said, “Well, he has said that. This report demonstrates, with testimony, that that’s simply not true. It shows that State Department officials...

    Donald Trump Jr. slammed the media for largely ignoring the damning revelations from the GOP-led Senate report on Hunter Biden's foreign financial ties. The Senate Homeland Security and Finance Committees on Wednesday released an interim report on their months-long joint investigation into Hunter Biden’s role on the board of Ukrainian natural gas firm Burisma Holdings and his alleged “extensive and complex financial transactions,” but also highlighted his questionable transactions with Russian and Chinese nationals. None of the revelations, however, were given much coverage by many of the major news networks. CNN and all three nightly news programs on ABC, CBS and NBC avoided the subject. MSNBC host Rachel Maddow was the only host on the network to address the Senate report but spent those roughly two minutes of coverage downplaying it....
    New Yorkers should take special note of one part of the Senate report on Hunter Biden’s shady business dealings — because one of his wealthy patrons got “economic development” tax breaks from our own Gov. Andrew Cuomo. Yes, the main implications are national: Hunter got millions from foreign sources while his dad was veep, and though Obama officials feared conflicts, they did nothing. Records “show potential criminal activity between Hunter Biden, his family and his associates” and Ukrainian, Russian, Kazakh and Chinese nationals, the report says. And the younger Biden sent “thousands” to folks who’ve been tied to “transactions consistent with human trafficking” or have possible associations with the porn industry or prostitution. Ugly stuff. see also Rep....
    Chief researcher Jason Buttrill joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Thursday to discuss an "explosive" new report released Wednesday by Senate Republicans on Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden's son, Hunter Biden, and the Ukrainian energy company Burisma. Among other serious allegations, the 87-page report claims that "Hunter Biden received a $3.5 million wire transfer from Elena Baturina, the wife of the former mayor of Moscow," and the richest woman in Russia. "The transactions discussed [in the report] are designed to illustrate the depth and extent of some questionable financial transactions. Moreover, the financial transactions illustrate serious counterintelligence and extortion concerns relating to Hunter Biden and his family," the report stated. Jason...
    Sen. Rand Paul sent a letter to Attorney General William Barr on Thursday, requesting that he take a look at the GOP-led investigation into the Bidens. The letter came after a report released on Wednesday by Republicans on the Senate Homeland Security Committee and Finance Committee detailed the business dealings of Hunter Biden, who was employed by a Ukrainian energy firm at the same time his father was serving as the U.S. vice president. "After reviewing (the report's) findings, I call on the Department of Justice to expeditiously launch a criminal investigation into the activities exposed in this report," Paul wrote. The Kentucky Republican added that the report raised "legitimate questions" and allegations of financial dealings that could have...

    A report by two Senate committees on Hunter Biden's overseas business dealings has revealed more questionable transactions than were previously known, author and researcher Peter Schweizer told "Bill Hemmer Reports" Thursday. "They put a lot of meat on the bones here," Schweizer said of the report by the Senate Homeland Security and Finance committees. "They did that because they had access to the Treasury Department's so-called SAR's -- Suspicious Activity Reports -- that flag transactions that are suspicious because of who they are coming from or the amount of money.

    A leading Republican congressman demanded Thursday that the FBI reveal whether it’s investigating allegations of “potential criminal activity” by the son of Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden. In a two-page letter, House Judiciary Committee Ranking Member Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) called on FBI Director Christopher Wray to write back regarding what he called the “explosive report” released by Republican senators on Wednesday. “Among other findings, the report documented ‘potential criminal activity relating to transactions among and between Hunter Biden, his family, and his associates with Ukrainian, Russian, Kazakh, and Chinese nationals,’ ” he wrote. Jordan also said the 87-page report from Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee Chairman Ron Johnson (R-Wisconsin) and Senate Finance Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) “shows...
    GLENDALE, Arizona — Despite a judge's ruling to compel his testimony in an investigation about business practices by the president's family, Eric Trump wants to turn attention to the Senate report alleging Hunter Biden engaged in wide-ranging corruption during his father's time in the White House. Trump spoke with the Washington Examiner while on a campaign trip through Arizona on behalf of his father. President Trump is locked in a tight race against Democratic rival Joe Biden ahead of the Nov. 3 elections.

There "should be a process" and that...
    Thursday on Fox Business Network’s “Mornings with Maria,” Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI) reacted to a U.S. Senate report highlighting potential wrongdoing with business dealings involving 2020 Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden’s son, Hunter Biden. Johnson said the “troubling” findings show the former vice president has been caught in “a lie” by denying having spoken with his son about his dealings in Ukraine. “As far as we can tell, there is only one person in the Obama administration that actually talked to the vice president about it,” Johnson advised. “Amos Hochstein, who was a special envoy over to Ukraine actually did talk to the vice president about how troubling this was, this conflict of interest, which, by the way, led the vice...
    A top House Republican pressed FBI Director Christopher Wray on Thursday about whether the bureau has been investigating Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden’s son, Hunter, following a GOP Senate report about allegations of corruption. Rep. Jim Jordan of Ohio, the ranking member on the House Judiciary Committee, told Wray in a two-page letter that Sen. Chuck Grassley of Iowa and Sen. Ron Johnson of Wisconsin had “released an explosive report detailing misconduct and potential criminal activity during the Obama-Biden Administration” and asked “what investigative steps — if any — the Federal Bureau of Investigation has taken in response to the information in this report.” The congressman contended that the report “shows that the FBI has been aware of some...
    Two top Republicans are pushing for FBI and Justice Department investigations into a series of wire transfers that Chinese and Russian businesspeople made to Hunter Biden, the son of Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden. Ohio Rep. Jim Jordan, the top Republican on the House Judiciary Committee, sent a letter Thursday to FBI Director Christopher Wray inquiring whether the bureau has investigated the wire transfers. Republican Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul said on Fox News Wednesday that he will submit a criminal referral to the DOJ over the payments. A report that Senate Republicans released Wednesday detailed millions of dollars in transfers to and from accounts linked to Hunter Biden and various business associates, including his uncle James Biden.

    Republican Rep. Jim Jordan on Thursday demanded answers from FBI Director Christopher Wray on what investigative steps the bureau has taken related to Hunter Biden’s business dealings in the wake of a Senate GOP report released this week. Republicans on the Senate Homeland Security Committee Chairman Ron Johnson, R-Wis.c, and Finance Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, released an 87-page interim report on their months-long joint-investigation into the younger Biden’s role on the board of Ukrainian natural gas firm Burisma Holdings, as well as his alleged “extensive and complex financial transactions.” TRUMP SAYS BIDEN 'SHOULD LEAVE THE CAMPAIGN,' AFTER SENATE GOP REPORT ON HUNTER BIDEN'S BUSINESS DEALINGS Jordan, the top Republican on the House Judiciary Committee, penned a letter to Wray Thursday and described...

    There was a widespread blackout of television coverage surrounding the damning revelations from the GOP-led Senate report on Hunter Biden's foreign financial ties. The Senate Homeland Security and Finance committees on Wednesday released an interim report on their monthslong joint investigation into Hunter Biden’s role on the board of Ukrainian natural gas firm Burisma Holdings and his alleged “extensive and complex financial transactions.” However, in addition to new findings regarding Biden's ties to Burisma, the report states that Senate investigators found millions of dollars in “questionable financial transactions” between Hunter Biden, who is a son of Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden, and his associates and foreign individuals, including the wife of the former mayor of Moscow as well as individuals with ties to the Chinese Communist Party. According...
    On Wednesday’s broadcast of the Fox News Channel’s “The Story,” Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) stated that he will send the preliminary report on Hunter Biden’s business dealings to the Department of Justice and ask for a criminal referral. Paul said, “I think riding on Air Force Two and doing business is illegal. I think that is against the law, and probably a felony. I think it’s illegal to take money from a Russian politician’s wife, $3.5 million. Was it reported accurately? I think the only way to determine the actual legality of this is to have it referred to the Department of Justice. So, I’m going to send the report over. I don’t know if the whole committee will vote...
    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."

    Foreign money flowing to Hunter Biden triggered alarm bells at banks as “potential criminal financial activity,” according to a Senate investigation released Wednesday. The Senate investigation cited numerous transactions that banks flagged in reports to the Treasury Department’s Financial Crimes Enforcement Network. In one of the transactions, Chinese billionaire Ye Jianming’s company sent $100,000 to Hunter’s law firm, according to the report. In another transaction, Chinese financier Gongwen Dong opened a line of credit with Hunter, which Hunter Biden, James Biden and James’s wife Sara used for a $100,000 spending spree, the report stated. Streams of foreign money flowing to Hunter Biden repeatedly triggered internal banking alarms as “potential criminal financial activity,” according to an investigation by two...
    A "bombshell" report by two U.S. Senate committees on Hunter Biden's overseas dealings should "immediately disqualify" his father, former Vice President Joe Biden, from becoming president of the United States, Fox News host Sean Hannity said Wednesday. "A brutal new U.S. Senate report is now revealing shocking and new details about the illicit and corrupt activities of Joe Biden's adult son, Hunter, and how he profited while his father was in charge of Ukrainian policy [while vice president]," the "Hannity" host began. "According to the report," Hannity added, "Hunter actually raked in a whopping $3.5 million from the wife of the former mayor of Moscow -- as in Russia -- via a wire transfer. Hunter also opened a joint bank account with a Chinese national in order to fund a $100,000 shopping spree for members of his family.

    The witness protection of Joe Biden by the media is starting to look like election interference. Exhibit A: The Senate interim report released Wednesday detailing millions of dollars Joe Biden’s son Hunter received from corrupt foreign oligarchs and companies while his father was vice president. Despite its obvious news value, the report immediately was pilloried by influential media outlets such as The New York Times and The Washington Post as “inconclusive” partisan echoing of Russian propaganda. “Republican Inquiry Finds No ­Evidence of Wrongdoing by Biden,” was the Times’ headline. “GOP’s Hunter Biden report doesn’t back up Trump’s actual conspiracy theory — or anything close to it,” said The Washington Post. “GOP senators’ anti-Biden report repackages old claims” was another typical...
    Hunter Biden had a 'financial relationship' with the widow of a Moscow mayor who was ousted over corruption allegations, according to a report from Republican senators. The 87-page report was released on Wednesday by the Republican-led Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee and the Finance Committee, and focuses on Hunter Biden's business dealings in Ukraine. The report did not implicate Joe Biden in wrongdoing, focusing instead on his son Hunter, who it said 'cashed in' on his father's position by joining the board of a Ukrainian gas company. It also states that on Valentine's Day in 2014, Hunter Biden's company Rosemont Seneca Thornton received a $3.5 million wire from Elena Baturina, a Russian billionaire and the widow of former Moscow Mayor Yuri...
    WASHINGTON (AP) — Two Republican-led Senate committees issued a politically charged report Wednesday alleging that the work Joe Biden’s son did in Ukraine constituted a conflict of interest for the Obama administration at a time when Biden was engaged in Ukraine policy as vice president. But the report also offered no support for President Donald Trump’s claim that the Democratic presidential nominee had improperly pressed for the firing of the country’s top prosecutor to protect his son. The report did not implicate Biden in wrongdoing, focusing instead on his son Hunter, who it said “cashed in” on his father’s position by joining the board of a Ukrainian gas company.

    We finally got an answer to the question: Where's Hunter Biden? Apparently he’s been everywhere, influence-peddling like a nepotistic grifter on a unicycle. GOP senators released their report on Hunter Biden's shady dealings when his pop was vice president. Joe Biden claims his kid just got lucky and found a job on Craigslist. GOP-LED COMMITTEES RELEASE INTERIM REPORT ON HUNTER BIDEN, BURISMA PROBE In 2015, Obama administration officials alerted the White House that Hunter Biden's odd Ukrainian business deals may be a conflict of interest, since his dad was overseeing Ukrainian problems.

    Igor Derysh September 23, 2020 11:07PM (UTC) Senate Republicans on Wednesday released an interim report of their investigation into Democratic nominee Joe Biden and son Hunter Biden that largely recycles old claims to back up allegations which have already been debunked. Sens. Ron Johnson, R-Wis., the chairman of the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, and Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, the chairman of the Senate Finance Committee, released an interim report titled "Hunter Biden, Burisma and Corruption" less than six weeks ahead of the election. : Johnson previously teased that he had found evidence which would "certainly help Donald Trump win re-election." But the report largely relies on witnesses who already testified on the matter in the House impeachment inquiry and presents little evidence...
    The New York Times reported Wednesday that a Republican-backed Senate inquiry had found no wrongdoing by Joe Biden, even though the report confirmed the former vice president’s conflict of interest regarding his son’s overseas business deals. As Breitbart News reported, the report by two Senate committees found that Biden had allowed family members to enrich themselves while he was in office. The report also suggested Biden had lied about what he knew about a potential conflict of interest involving Hunter Biden, and about speaking with his son about his businesses abroad. However, the Times reported that the inquiry had turned up nothing. Its article was titled “Republican Inquiry Finds No Evidence of Wrongdoing by Biden,” and its subheading declared: “The report...
    Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, raked in nearly six million from a Chinese oligarch who sought power and influence in Washington, D.C. A bombshell report by the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee and Senate Finance Committee details numerous cases in which Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, and family members have deep ties to the Chinese communist government, Russia, Ukraine, and Kazakhstan. One such case notes Hunter Biden’s law firm, Owasco, seemingly accepting nearly six million in consulting fees and legal representation from Chinese oligarch Ye Jianming. The report details: On Aug. 8, 2017, CEFC Infrastructure Investment wired $5 million to the bank account for Hudson West III. These funds may have originated from a loan issued from the account of a company...
    The Senate Republican majority of the Homeland Security Committee and the Finance Committee released a joint report Wednesday leaving powerful allegations against Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden's son, Hunter Biden. The investigation of the younger Biden's actions connected to his time on the board of Burisma in Ukraine, which he joined in May 2014, uncovered damning new details of possible corruption, hindering of U.S. foreign policy, and assisting Moscow's effort to spread disinformation. The report's "key findings" list a number of concerning areas when it comes to Biden and his international work and potential conflicts of interest. KEY FINDING 1: "In early 2015 the former Acting Deputy Chief of Mission at the U.S. Embassy in Kyiv,...
    Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden claimed there was “no evidence” showing his son Hunter Biden did anything wrong by his involvement with Ukrainian energy company Burisma Holdings (Burisma) during an interview in December. However, a recent report from the Senate says that might not be true. “I don’t know what he was doing. I found out he was on the board after he was on the board,” Biden said in an interview with Axios in 2019. When pressed on whether Biden believed everything his son did was “kosher,” Biden said he trusted his son. “I trust my son…” Biden continued, before trying to shift attention to President Donald Trump’s family. “If you want to talk about problems, let’s talk...
    The Senate Homeland Security and Finance Committees' report on their investigation into Hunter Biden raises "the many and disturbing conflicts of interests" surrounding Joe Biden's time as vice president and "makes clear that the Democratic nominee is not being straight with the public," political columnist and Fox News contributor Kimberley Strassel argued.

But the report also offered no support for President Donald Trump's claim that the Democratic presidential nominee had improperly pressed for the firing of the country's top prosecutor to protect his son.The report did not implicate Biden in wrongdoing, focusing instead on his son Hunter, who it said "cashed in" on his father's position by joining the board of a Ukrainian gas company. The document says that work created conflict-of-interest concerns, including among two Obama administration...
    Hunter Biden's lucrative work at a Ukrainian energy firm while his father was vice-president was "problematic", a report by Republican senators says. But it found no evidence that US foreign policy was influenced by it. Hunter Biden's presence on the Burisma board led to an impeachment trial against Donald Trump earlier this year. Mr Trump was accused of pressing Ukraine to probe what the Bidens were doing in the country, and using military aid as a bargaining chip. He was impeached by the Democratic House but cleared by the Republican Senate. The 87-page report called the younger Biden's role at a company suspected of corruption "awkward" and "problematic" at a time when the US was trying to help clean...
    SENATE Republicans released a report on Wednesday on Hunter Biden’s work for Ukrainian gas company Burisma Holdings during his father’s time as vice president. The report allegedly links Hunter Biden to sending "thousands of dollars" to Russian and Ukrainian women who lived in the US and who, in turn, wired the funds to individuals located in Russia and the Ukraine.  7Hunter and Joe Biden Credit: Getty - Contributor The report claims that some of these transactions were linked to a human trafficking ring.

    Former Vice President Joe Biden claimed in December that he was never told his son’s business dealings in Ukraine posed a conflict of interest. He also said last September that he had never spoken to his son about his business dealings. A new report suggests both of those claims may be false. The report, released Wednesday by two Senate committees, suggests that Biden was briefed about the fact that his son’s dealings with Burisma Holdings, a Ukrainian natural gas conglomerate, suggested a conflict of interest for the Obama administration. The report, which was made public on Wednesday, indicates that at least two individuals raised concerns about Hunter Biden’s service on Burisma’s board of directors during the former vice president’s tenure in office. The...
    Hunter Biden, the youngest son of former Vice President Joe Biden, ditched his Secret Service protection in 2014 shortly after Time magazine published an article highlighting his financial ties to Burisma Holdings, a Ukrainian natural gas conglomerate. A report by the Senate Homeland Security Committee released on Wednesday indicates the younger Biden took 411 domestic and international flights upon which the federal government provided security between June 2009 and July 2014. Secret Service flight logs show that Hunter Biden traveled to at least 29 foreign countries, including one trip to Russia and five visits to China, respectively. The records, however, indicate that Hunter Biden’s foreign travel petered off after he joined Burisma’s board of directors in May 2014, culminating in his decision...
    Joe Biden's granddaughter, Naomi Biden, published a statement on Twitter defending her father, Hunter Biden, following a report from Senate Republicans about his business dealings and their impact on U.S. policy. The 26-year-old Columbia Law student, who appeared in a video introducing the former vice president during the Democratic National Convention, tweeted, "Despite the best efforts of an cruel few to destroy a private man, he is sober, happy, and as at peace as ever today because as long his family needs him, he has not lost his purpose." She described her father as a man who "never sought the spotlight" and said, "He found his purpose in doing everything in his power to help Beau," Joe Biden's...
    John Kerry “falsely claimed” that he didn’t know Joe Biden’s son was serving on the board of a controversial Ukrainian energy company when Kerry was secretary of state, US Senate Republicans alleged in a report released Wednesday. The report cites Kerry’s answers last year to a reporter’s questions about Hunter Biden and the Burisma natural gas company following a campaign appearance with former vice president and Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden. “I had no knowledge about any of that. None. No,” Kerry said, according to an account posted on Twitter at the time. When pressed further, Kerry — who served with Joe Biden under former President Barack Obama — doubled down on his denial. “What would I know about...
    The findings of a months-long probe by two Republican chairmen released Wednesday asserted that Hunter Biden’s tenure on the board of the corruption-linked Ukrainian gas company Burisma “did interfere in the efficient execution” of Obama-era policy toward Ukraine led by former Vice President Joe Biden. “Hunter Biden’s position on Burisma’s board cast a shadow over the work of those [Obama-era officials] advancing anti-corruption reforms in Ukraine,” the report from Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee Chairman Ron Johnson (R-WI) and Senate Finance Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-IA) said. Hunter worked for Burisma between April 2014 and April 2019 for a lucrative salary of tens of thousands a month. As VP, Joe Biden, now the Democrat presidential nominee, was in charge of the Obama...
    Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden’s family members bought more than $100,000 worth of “extravagant items” in 2017 using a line of credit linked to associates of the Chinese communist government. A bombshell report by the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee and Senate Finance Committee details numerous cases in which Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, and family members have deep ties to the Chinese communist government, Russia, Ukraine, and Kazakhstan. In one instance, the Senate report states that on September 8, 2017, Hunter Biden and Chinese national Gongwen Dong — with ties to the Chinese communist government — opened a bank account to fund a more than $100,000 “global spending spree” for members of the Biden family. “Hunter Biden and Gongwen Dong,...
    Hunter Biden sent “thousands of dollars” to people who appear to be involved in the sex industry, according to a report released Wednesday by Republicans in the US Senate. The report says unspecified records show that Biden “has sent funds to non-resident alien women in the United States who are citizens of Russia and Ukraine and who have subsequently wired funds they have received from Hunter Biden to individuals located in Russia and Ukraine.” “The records also note that some of these transactions are linked to what ‘appears to be an Eastern European prostitution or human trafficking ring,'” the report says. The allegations are contained in a footnote to a section of the report that details potential “criminal concerns and...
    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...
    Two top Senate Democrats released a report on Wednesday to counter the findings released by their Republican counterparts from an investigation into Joe Biden and his son Hunter Biden's dealings in Ukraine. Sens. Gary Peters, the ranking member of the Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, and Ron Wyden, the top Democrat on the the Finance Committee, accused the chairmen of their respective committees — Sen. Ron Johnson of Wisconsin and Sen. Chuck Grassley of Iowa — of pushing Russian disinformation to help President Trump win his reelection campaign against the former vice president. Peters called the GOP findings, which alleges the Obama administration turned a blind eye to the "glaring warning signs" when the younger Biden joined the board...
    WASHINGTON - Two Republican-led Senate committees issued a politically charged report Wednesday alleging that the work Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden's son did in Ukraine constituted a conflict of interest for the Obama administration at a time when Biden was engaged in Ukraine policy as vice president. But the report said it was ultimately "unclear" what impact Hunter Biden's position on the board of a Ukrainian gas company had on Obama administration policy with regard to Ukraine. And it offered no evidence to support one of President Donald Trump's more incendiary allegations — that Joe Biden pressured Ukraine to fire its top prosecutor as a way to protect his son. Biden's campaign immediately panned the report, released six weeks...
    A new report by the Senate Homeland Security Committee indicates that Hunter Biden’s private equity firm received $3.5 million from one of Russia’s most “powerful” female oligarchs in 2014. The report, which was made public on Wednesday, shows that Rosemont Seneca Thornton, LLC, a firm that Biden incorporated with his longtime business associate Devon Archer in May 2013, had a previously unknown financial relationship with Yelena Baturina, a Russian businesswoman now living in the United Kingdom. According to bank documents reviewed by the Homeland Security Committee, Baturina wired $3.5 million to a bank account controlled by Rosemont Seneca Thornton as part of a “consultancy agreement.” At the time of the transfer, Baturina, a well-known construction magnate, was living in the...
            by John Solomon  A year-long Senate investigation concluded Wednesday that Hunter Biden’s efforts to cash in on foreign business deals during his father’s vice presidency raised alarm among U.S. government officials, who perceived an ethical conflict of interest and flagged concerns about possible criminal activity ranging from bribery to sex trafficking. The long-awaited joint report by the GOP-led Senate Homeland and Government Affairs and Senate Finance Committees delivered several blockbuster revelations less than two months before Election Day, suggesting Obama administration officials ignored clear warning signs about ethical conflicts and possible extortion risks involving Joe Biden’s family. Perhaps the most explosive revelation was that the U.S. Treasury Department flagged payments collected overseas by Hunter Biden...
    A new Senate Committee report alleges that Hunter Biden paid women linked to “Eastern European prostitution or [a] human trafficking ring.” The report, released Wednesday by the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs and the Senate Committee on Finance, alleges that Biden made a series of questionable financial transactions, opening him and his family to extortion and counterintelligence concerns. The committees’ report confirms in a footnote that Biden “sent thousands of dollars” to individuals involved with “possible human trafficking,” associated with the adult entertainment industry, or associated with prostitution. From the report: The records note that it is a documented fact that Hunter Biden has sent funds to nonresident alien women in the United States who are citizens of Russia...
    Republicans senators have finished an investigation that President Donald Trump was impeached for pursuing. The central thesis of GOP’s findings about Hunter Biden focused on information largely known to the public: Biden’s position on the board of Ukrainian gas company Burisma while his father Joe Biden was vice president “created an immediate potential conflict of interest that would prove to be problematic for both U.S. and Ukrainian officials and would affect the implementation of Ukraine policy.” But other salacious details about Hunter Biden receiving a large wire transfer from the widow of Moscow’s former mayor and Biden allegedly making payments to Russian women linked to human trafficking are now entering the public sphere at the height of his father’s...
    Alex Thomas September 23, 2020 0 Comments A Republican-led Senate committee released a report this week that presented findings into their investigation into Hunter Biden, who is the son of Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden. The report comes just over 40 days before the 2020 presidential election and amid accusations from Democrats that the entire investigation is politically motivated and as the political arena has intensified. In the Senate Homeland Security and Finance Committees’ report, Sens. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) and Ron Johnson (R-Wisc.) said that they faced obstacles from Democrats and agencies that failed to comply with requests for documents. The report is titled, “Hunter Biden, Burisma, and Corruption.” OUT TODAY: Report with @chuckgrassley found millions of...
    Washington — The Republican chairmen of two Senate committees released Wednesday a controversial report on possible conflicts of interest between the Bidens and Ukraine, finding that Hunter Biden's position on the board of a Ukrainian energy company Burisma Holdings was "problematic" and that warnings about his role were ignored by the Obama administration. The report, which reveals little new information, follows a yearlong investigation mounted by GOP Senators Chuck Grassley of Iowa, who leads the Senate Finance Committee, and Ron Johnson of Wisconsin, who helms the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affair Committee. The report does not assert that the former vice president pushed for the firing of a Ukrainian prosecutor in order to protect Burisma, a central claim made...
    A new Senate report released Wednesday concludes that former Vice President Joe Biden allowed Hunter Biden and other members of his family to enrich themselves through links with foreign companies and governments while he was in office. The report notes that the Obama administration was aware of, but did nothing about the conflict of interest that was created when Joe Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, was appointed to the board of Burisma, a corrupt Ukrainian fossil fuel company. But the report goes further than what was revealed during the impeachment inquiry last year. It presents email evidence that former Secretary of State John Kerry, whose stepson Chris Heinz was one of Hunter Biden’s business partners, was also aware of the conflicts of...
    (CNN)Senate Republicans on Wednesday issued a partisan report attacking Vice President Joe Biden's son Hunter Biden over his role on the board of a Ukrainian energy company but says little about the former vice president beyond the long-known potential conflict of interest issues that arose because of Hunter's position.The report was released fewer than two months before the presidential election and days before the first debate between Biden and President Donald Trump.The report focuses largely on Hunter Biden's role on the board of Burisma, the Ukrainian energy firm. The report says concerns were raised inside the Obama administration and with Biden directly about the potential issues surrounding Hunter Biden's position. But the Republicans do not write that US policy changed...
    Senate Republicans have released their long-awaited report on Hunter Biden’s work for Ukrainian gas company Burisma Holdings during his father’s time as vice president. The 87-page report was released Wednesday by Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee Chairman Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) and Senate Finance Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa), who oversaw the probe since it was launched last year. The investigation, and subsequent report, was hampered with delays, first due to impeachment proceedings earlier this year and then by the coronavirus pandemic. The probe found that in 2015, two Obama administration officials voiced concerns to White House officials about the possibility that the younger Biden serving on the board of Burisma could create the appearance of a conflict of...
    Senate Republicans have released their controversial report on Joe Biden and his son Hunter’s former dealings with Ukraine in a politically-charged move to taint Biden’s campaign weeks out from Election Day. The investigation, which was spearheaded by Sens. Ron Johnson (R-WI) and Chuck Grassley (R-IA) focuses on Hunter Biden’s work for Ukrainian gas company Burisma Holdings—a key issue in last year’s impeachment of President Donald Trump. The probe was launched despite no evidence of any wrongdoing by Hunter Biden ever being established. Senate Democrats tried earlier this week to prevent the report from being published, warning that the document would only serve to amplify Russian disinformation about Biden ahead of November’s election. The Treasury department has sanctioned Andriy Derkach,...
    The Senate Republicans’ controversial report on Joe and Hunter Biden was released on Wednesday, detailing allegations of problematic foreign business dealings by Biden’s son as the former vice president helped lead the Obama administration’s foreign policy and pushing back on Democratic claims of Russian disinformation. The 87-page joint report by the Republican-led Homeland Security and Finance Committees, titled Hunter Biden, Burisma, and Corruption: The Impact on U.S. Government Policy and Related Concerns, is the product of an investigation by Sen. Ron Johnson of Wisconsin and Sen. Chuck Grassley of Iowa. Even before its release 41 days before the presidential election, Democrats claimed the GOP chairmen were working to harm the elder Biden, who is the 2020 Democratic presidential candidate,...

    Hunter Biden’s financial dealings with Ukrainian, Russian and Chinese businesses created potential “criminal financial, counterintelligence and extortion concerns,” according to a report by two Senate committees.  The report details a series of wire transfers between Biden and a businessman with extensive ties to the Chinese Communist Party.   The report, written by the Senate Homeland Security and Senate Finance committees, also states that State Department officials repeatedly raised concerns about Hunter Biden’s work for Burisma Holdings. One official testified that he told Joe Biden in October 2015 that his son’s links to Burisma “enabled Russian disinformation efforts.” U.S. banks flagged suspicious financial transactions between Hunter Biden’s firms and Russian and Chinese nationals, including a businessman with extensive ties to...
            by John Solomon  A year ago this month, Democrats began their impeachment crusade against President Trump because he had sought an investigation into Joe and Hunter Biden’s activities in Ukraine. And the rallying cry then was that any concerns about the Bidens were pure, discredited conspiracy theories. What a difference a year makes. The GOP-led Senate Finance and Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs committees plan to release a joint report as early as this week disclosing the results of a year-long probe into Joe Biden’s stewardship of Ukraine anti-corruption policy while his son earned big money as a board member at the corruption-plagued Burisma Holdings gas firm. The report is expected to accuse the former...

    Senator Mitt Romney (R-UT) called the Hunter Biden-Burisma investigation was “not the legitimate role of government,” during a Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee business meeting on Wednesday. Homeland Security Committee chairman Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI) has defended the investigation into former Vice President Joe Biden’s son Hunter’s dealings with Ukraine and his role on the board of energy company Burisma. Romney said, “I’ll call it the Biden-Burisma investigation and that I think from the outset had the earmarks of a political exercise. I’m fearful that comments made in the media recently have only confirmed that perspective.” He continued, “Obviously, it is the province of campaigns and political parties’ opposition research, the media, to carry out political endeavors — to learn about...
    Never Trump conservatives have been praising Sen. Mitt Romney of Utah as one of the few Republicans in Congress who is willing to stand up to President Donald Trump, and now, Romney is speaking out against a GOP investigation of former Vice President Joe Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, and his ties to the Ukrainian energy company Burisma. Republican Sen. Ron Johnson, chairman of the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, has said that the Committee will issue a report on Hunter Biden’s activities in Ukraine before the presidential election on November 3. Many Trump allies have promoted the debunked conspiracy theory that it was Ukraine — not the Russian government, President Vladimir Putin and the Kremlin — that interfered...

    Senate Homeland Security Committee Chairman Ron Johnson (R-WI) announced Monday that he would release an interim report from his months-long investigation into the Obama administration-era Ukraine dealings of Joe Biden and his son Hunter “in about a week,” ahead of the presidential election. Specifically, Senate investigators are looking into Hunter’s dealings with the corruption-linked Ukrainian gas company Burisma, and the potential conflicts of interest they may have posed for his then-VP father who was in charge of U.S. policy towards the Eastern European country at the time. GOP investigators are also probing whether a lobbying firm working on behalf of Burisma — Blue Star Strategies — leveraged the company’s ties to Hunter to access the U.S. government while Ukrainian authorities...
    Breitbart News senior contributor and Government Accountability Institute President Peter Schweizer explores the troubling new evidence of Hunter Biden’s globe-hopping deals with foreign nations, even with totalitarian regimes like the Chinese Communist Party. From the New York Post: While Joe Biden served as vice president, his son Hunter received offers from foreign governments and oligarchs in areas where he had little or no expertise. That his foreign partners included a rival state, Communist China, makes these arrangements particularly brazen, even by Washington’s swampy standards. Newly released Secret Service travel records for Hunter paint a clearer picture of how extensive these efforts were. The documents, reviewed by Judicial Watch, show that between 2009 and 2014, Hunter made 411 trips across 29 countries....

    The Obama administration allowed then-Vice President Joe Biden’s son Hunter to continue working at Ukrainian gas firm Burisma, even after U.S. officials established “strong” evidence suggesting that the company had engaged in corrupt activities in 2014, Just the News reported Monday, citing State Department memos and interviews. Hunter, the son of now-Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden, served on Burisma Holding’s board of directors from April 2014 to April 2019, getting paid tens of thousands of dollars each month, more than the average executives with similar positions. The U.S. investigators reportedly believed Burisma paid a $7 million bribe to local prosecutors between May and December 2014. According to the State memos, U.S. officials’ concerns about the bribe came to light in January 2015, only months...
    A top Republican senator said he will soon release an interim report on the investigation he is spearheading into former Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter Biden. "Stay tuned.

Ron Johnson, the chairman of the Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

    Sen. Ron Johnson on Monday said the Senate Homeland Security committee, which he chairs, is poised to release a damning report on Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden’s dealings in Ukraine. “Stay tuned. In about a week we’re going to learn a whole lot more of Vice President Biden’s unfitness for office,” the Wisconsin Republican said on a call with supporters, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. Johnson’s committee has been investigating Hunter Biden’s employment by a Ukrainian energy company during the time his father led the Obama administration’s Ukraine policy. President Trump’s request that Ukraine investigate the dealings of the former vice president and his son resulted in his impeachment in December. Republican senators acquitted Trump in February of charges...

    Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden delivered a speech in Macomb County, Michigan, on Wednesday, slamming the practice of outsourcing. Unmentioned was his son Hunter’s ties to a Chinese government acquisition of a Michigan company that is delivering jobs to China, Mexico, Europe, and South America. “Make it in Michigan, make it in America, invest in our communities and the workers in places like Warren … Getting a good job in 2020 shouldn’t be a lottery … it should be an expectation,” Biden told American auto workers. Biden’s pitch, though, is muffled by his son Hunter’s ties to the Chinese government.
