CONTROVERSIAL HUNTER BIDEN FBI BRIEFING BACK IN SPOTLIGHT AFTER WHISTLEBLOWER CLAIMS
Johnson and Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA) released a report in September 2020, during the heat of the presidential election cycle, detailing extensive financial connections between Hunter Biden and China, Ukraine, and elsewhere. The report was dismissed by Democrats as part of an effort to spread Russian disinformation, claims the two senators have denied, as Republicans raised concerns about the hold foreign powers might have on a Biden administration.
Prosecutors are weighing charges for alleged tax violations and for making a false statement in connection to the purchase of a firearm at a time when he should have been blocked from obtaining such a weapon because of a drug addiction. A report from CNN last month on the latest deliberations said the federal investigation has reached a “critical juncture.” The younger Biden has denied wrongdoing.
Adding to the controversy surrounding the president’s son, Grassley recently announced that whistleblowers told him FBI officials were undercutting or burying facts about Hunter Biden, wrongly labeling verified evidence as “disinformation.” Although President Joe Biden has denied knowledge of his son’s business dealings, Fox News reported on Thursday that the elder Biden met with at least 14 of Hunter Biden’s business associates while he was vice president in the Obama White House.
“We’ve known that the Bidens are a corrupt family for years,” Johnson told Bongino, adding that these latest revelations show the FBI “was covering it up” while a “complicit and corrupt mainstream media” is only now coming around to the story.
