So much FBI whistleblowing is going on all of a sudden –- particularly concerning the Biden Family Business and the efforts to cover it up –- that we might be risking permanent tinnitus. But their whistle is actually a pleasing sound after Special Counsel John Durham’s revelations of dreadful FBI “Trump-Russia” malfeasance, showing that the FBI has at least some principled agents.
According to whistleblowers, the FBI is in possession of “significant, impactful and voluminous evidence” of “potential criminal conduct” by Hunter and Jim Biden, son and brother, respectively, of President Joe Biden, relating to family business dealings with China and Ukraine. These reports stem from a letter from Sen. Chuck Grassley to Attorney General Merrick Garland (who may or may not have paid it any attention), FBI Director Chris Wray (who may or may not have been en route to somewhere via private jet), and Delaware U.S. Attorney David Weiss (who may or may not be seriously investigating Hunter Biden).
Jerry Dunleavy at the WASHINGTON EXAMINER has a good summary.
Matt Margolis at PJ MEDIA has a take on this as well. According to a whistleblower at the FBI, he reports, the Bureau makes a “pattern and practice of political decisions.” You think?
Grassley says in his letter that some of the documents the FBI has involve the head of corrupt Ukrainian energy company Burisma, Mykola Zlochevsky, and his business and financial involvements with Hunter, who was being paid lavishly to sit on their corporate board. These documents “include specific details with respect to conversations by non-government individuals relevant to potential criminal conduct by Hunter Biden.” Of course, one of those is presumably former Biden business associate Tony Bobulinski.
The letter goes on to say, “These documents also indicate that Joe Biden was aware of Hunter Biden’s business arrangements and may have been involved in some of them.”
FOX NEWS reports this as well. In the letter, Grassley says it’s “unclear whether the FBI followed normal investigative procedure or shut down investigative activity based on improper disinformation claims in advance of the 2020 election.” This is what is known as 'election interference.'
Grassley added this: “It is also unclear whether U.S. Attorney Weiss has performed his own due diligence on these and related allegations.”
Considering he hasn’t even interviewed Tony Bobulinski, I’d say it’s quite clear. Grassley’s observation about Weiss brings to mind another U.S. Attorney, Cindy K. Chung in the Western District of Pennsylvania, who is overseeing a different investigation, this one of the President’s brother James and his association with a healthcare company called Americorp. Talk about a conflict of interest: Chung was not only appointed by President Biden, but has been nominated by him to fill a vacancy on the Third Circuit Court of Appeals. That’s just scratching the surface of the conflicts, detailed here by Margot Cleveland, who calls them “scandalous.”
As Cleveland writes, “Attorney General Merrick Garland has ignored these blatant conflicts of interest just as he has spurned demand that he appoint a special counsel for the Delaware criminal investigation into the Biden family business dealings that implicate not just Hunter and James Biden, but the President of the United States.”
From our “Is there anything the Democrats haven’t ruined?” desk comes this story
The Heritage Foundation issued a frightening new report that, for the first time ever, rates the “Index of US Military Strength” as “weak.”
Only the Marine Corps was rated “strong,” while the Army was “marginal,” the Space Force and Navy were dubbed “weak,” and the Air Force “very weak.” The study found that the US military is underfunded, has “poorly defined” priorities, and would struggle to handle more than one regional conflict at a time. They found that Biden’s proposed budget for next year falls far short of what our military needs to regain its strength and replace aged equipment, with the proposed 5% increase being barely half the rate of inflation.
As Bob Hoge writes at the link, Democrats will likely dismiss the report since it comes from a conservative think tank. I guess they don’t appreciate that diversity is our strength, so having a military that focuses obsessively on diversity, inclusion and trans rights automatically makes it the strongest military in the world, right?
