For years, off and on, there have been reports that Hunter Biden, son of Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden, had illicit dealings with foreign governments and entities, including China.
Those reports have also suggested that the former vice president’s position within the Obama administration was, um, ‘helpful’ in advancing Hunter Biden’s business deals.
Now, a new Senate report by two committees contains bombshell allegations that the younger Biden and his business associates were allegedly involved in illicit activities that could even have crossed the line into criminality.
And with a vitally important election just around the corner, it’s imperative that Americans find out if one of the two major party candidates is complicit in any of the alleged activities of his son.
As such, Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) wants to find out, so he’s referred some of the most explosive allegations contained in the Senate report to the Justice Department for potential criminal charges.
Fox News reported Wednesday that Sen. Rand Paul plans to refer Democratic candidate Joe Biden's son, Hunter Biden, to the Department of Justice for a 'criminal referral.' The call for a referral came on the heels of a Senate report, which revealed that more than $3.5 million had been transferred into his bank account from the wife of a former Moscow Mayor, among other suspicious financial transactions.
The explosive report released by Senators Ron Johnson, Chairman of the Senate Homeland Security Committee, and Chuck Grassley, Chairman of the Senate Finance Committee, revealed that the U.S. Treasury Department had been monitoring suspicious transactions into Hunter Biden's bank account from Russia, Ukraine and China.
The lengthy report showed that Hunter Biden took $3.5 million in a wire transfer from Elena Baturina. Baturina is the richest woman in Russia and the widow of Yury Luzhkov, the former mayor of Moscow, with links to Vladimir Putin. The wire transfer took place in 2014, during the time Vice President Biden was serving in the Obama administration. 'Baturina became Russia's only female billionaire when her plastics company, Inteko, received a series of Moscow municipal contracts while her husband was mayor,' the report noted.
Another key finding in the report alleges that 'Hunter Biden had business associations with Ye Jianming, Gongwen Dong, and other Chinese nationals linked to the Communist government and the People's Liberation Army. Those associations resulted in millions of dollars in cash flow.'
'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,' Paul told Fox News.
'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 for it, but I'm sending the report, tomorrow, to the Department of Justice, and we're asking for a criminal referral.'
We think he’s right. And we would add: What did Joe Biden know, and when did he know it?
President Trump is Breaking Down the Neck of the Federal Reserve!
