Senate report on Hunter Biden raises ‘criminal, financial, counterintelligence and extortion’ concerns


U.S. Senate committees released a damning and lengthy report revealing alarming corruption in overseas business involving former Vice President Joe Biden’s son.

While the liberal media continues to bury its head in the sand on Hunter Biden’s questionable foreign business dealings, Republican-led committees released a new report Tuesday exposing the Biden family’s ties to Ukraine and China.

U.S. Senators Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa), chairman of the Senate Finance Committee, and Ron Johnson (R-Wis.), chairman of the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, put out the nearly 90-page report titled, “Hunter Biden, Burisma, and Corruption: The Impact on U.S. Government Policy and Related Concerns.”

“The Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs (HSGAC) and the Senate Committee on Finance undertook this investigation into potential conflicts of interest, and the involvement of the Biden family in foreign business ventures while Joe Biden was vice president,” the report stated.

The investigation followed “allegations that the Obama administration’s Ukraine policy could have been affected by Hunter Biden’s position on the board of Burisma, and that family members may have improperly sought to benefit from their relationship with the vice president,” the report continued.

The Committees found “consistent, significant and extensive financial connections” among Biden family members and the Chinese Communist government. As the U.S. geared up for the presidential election, the mainstream media gladly dropped stories on Hunter Biden and the contents of his laptop computer. The New York Post was effectively censored over its damning report on the younger Biden back in October, but Senate Republicans continued to pull back the curtain on the shady business dealings.

“Hunter Biden and Devon Archer engaged in numerous financial transactions with Chinese nationals who had deep connections to the Communist Chinese government. These Chinese nationals included Ye Jianming, founder of CEFC China Energy Co. Ltd (CEFC) and chairman of the board for its subsidiary, the China Energy Fund Committee (CE Fund),” the report stated.

“They also included Gongwen Dong, who was Ye Jianming’s associate and reportedly executed transactions for his companies. Ye’s connections to the Communist government are extensive and, as explained below, he has been previous affiliations with the People’s Liberation Army. Based on the information received by the Committees, Ye was also financially connected to Vice President Biden’s brother, James Biden,” it continued.

“Thus, there exists a vast web of corporate connections and financial transactions between and among the Biden family and Chinese nationals,” the senators explained. “Hunter Biden has extensive connections to Chinese businesses and Chinese foreign nationals that are linked to the Communist government. Those contacts bore financial fruit when his father was vice president and after he left office.”

A video that was taken down from China’s social media showed a lecture by a Chinese professor in Beijing last month who spoke of how China “has people at the top of America’s core inner circle of power and influence.”

Renmin University professor Di Dongsheng bragged in the video that China has long influenced policy in the U.S. thanks to “old friends” in top levels of government and financial institutions.

Democratic Rep. Eric Swalwell was making headlines this week as a new report linked him to an alleged Chinese spy who helped him get elected. And Republican Rep. Ken Buck called on Attorney General William Barr Monday to appoint a special counsel to investigate Biden’s business foreign dealings.

Meanwhile, the Senate committees report noted that the investigation found “that the Obama administration knew that Hunter Biden’s position on Burisma’s board was problematic and did interfere in the efficient execution of policy with respect to Ukraine.”

“Moreover, this investigation has illustrated the extent to which officials within the Obama administration ignored the glaring warning signs when the vice president’s son joined the board of a company owned by a corrupt Ukrainian oligarch. And, as will be discussed in later sections, Hunter Biden was not the only Biden who cashed in on Joe Biden’s vice presidency,” the report stated.

“The records acquired by the Committees show consistent, significant and extensive financial connections among and between Hunter Biden, James Biden, Sara Biden, Devon Archer, and Chinese nationals connected to the Communist regime and PLA as well as other foreign nationals with questionable backgrounds,” the report continued.

“These connections and the vast amount of money transferred among and between them don’t just raise conflicts of interest concerns, they raise criminal financial, counterintelligence and extortion concerns,” the report concluded. “The Committees will continue to evaluate the evidence in their possession.”
