The “Biden Inc.” family scandal appears ready to burst wide open.
Let’s see --- where to start? As we reported yesterday, the decision by the House Ways and Means Committee to allow whistleblower attorneys to see Hunter Biden’s tax information came through, expediting matters considerably. And now, the WASHINGTON POST reports that prosecutors, after meeting with Hunter’s attorneys last week, are nearing a decision on whether or not to charge him with violations of tax and gun laws. The federal indictment of Hunter appears “imminent” and might happen as early as Thursday.
But it had already seemed likely that this would happen, as a way to minimally charge Hunter and dispense with the case before it got too sticky for President Biden and the whole Biden clan. Actually, the latest turn of events is much more serious and could end up being as sticky as, well, tar and feathers used to be.
In breaking news Wednesday evening, the still-unidentified IRS whistleblower, described as a supervisory agent with a stellar record, is alleging that President Biden is directly implicated in a bribery scheme with a foreign national from his days as Vice President that ties payments to specific foreign policy decisions. Not only that --- this person says the FBI and DOJ have a document proving this was going on. The link below will take you to more details from FOX NEWS, including an amusingly lame response from Ian Sams, the White House spokesperson for oversight and investigations.
Knowing what we already know about the FBI and DOJ, especially after release of the “Twitter Files,” it would almost be more surprising if this allegation DIDN’T turn out to be true.
According to House Oversight and Accountability Committee Chairman James Comer and ranking member of the Senate Budget Committee Chuck Grassley --- a longtime whistleblower advocate --- it’s very straightforward: the document, called a Form FD-1023, “includes a precise description of how the alleged criminal scheme was employed as well as its purpose.” Grassley says the document is “unclassified” (as in, refreshingly redaction-free) and that its allegations concerning the President are “very serious.”
On Wednesday, Comer and Grassley notified FBI Director Chris Wray and Attorney General Merrick Garland by letter of the “legally protected and highly credible unclassified whistleblower disclosures.” They said that based on “the alleged specificity within the document, it would appear that the DOJ and FBI have enough information to determine the truth and accuracy of the information contained within it.” They also questioned the apparent lack of attention given to this by those agencies, citing growing concern about the political bias that might be underlying that.
Here’s that letter…
Since the GOP-led House Oversight Committee has subpoena power, Chairman Comer issued a congressional subpoena to Wray on Wednesday demanding that the FBI produce the form in question, along with all FD-1023’s that contain the word “Biden” and all accompanying attachments and documents.
The NEW YORK POST has a good write-up as well, providing a concise review of the various business dealings of the Biden family when Joe was VP.
Investigative reporter John Solomon appeared on Wednesday’s HANNITY and explained that this new allegation must involve a confidential human source (CHS) since that’s what 1023 forms are used for at the FBI. When an authorized CHS talks with an agent, the agent fills out one of these. We know from the subpoena filed by Comer that the particular form they’re looking for was filled out in June 2020.
Here’s the cover letter and subpoena. The reference to June 2020 is on the page titled “Schedule to Subpoena”...
Solomon told Hannity he has it on good authority that this document still exists. “It hasn’t been destroyed,” he said. “There are witnesses that know what’s in the document. There are agents that handled it. I think Congress has a good chance of getting this, and then the question is...Given all the body of evidence we now have about pay-to-play, was this checked out? And if not, why? Because it comes in in the summer of 2020, right in the middle of a presidential election.”
I think he answered his own question. He also broke more news: “I am reporting,” he said, “from multiple sources tonight...that the allegation of pay-to-play involves the country of Ukraine...We don’t know more than that…”
He reminded viewers that the FBI had had the laptop since December 2019, and on it is an email from April 2014 relating to a speech given by then-VP Biden in Ukraine “touting natural gas in the same week that his son is getting put on the board of Burisma.” Hunter later writes business partner and fellow Burisma board member Devon Archer to say they should tell Burisma about this; “it shows we’re adding value.”
Solomon thinks Comer and Grassley must be wondering why the FBI/DOJ didn’t dig into this very serious issue.
Here are Solomon’s most recent reports…
Judge Jeanine Pirro also appeared on Hannity’s show for a discussion about the high-powered legal counsel retained by Hunter Biden. Abbe Lowell is the same attorney who represented John Edwards (acquitted) and Sen. Bob Menendez (acquitted). But even that might take Hunter only so far.
“What else do you need?” Judge Pirro asked. “I don’t care if God comes down to represent you” if you committed perjury on a statement to buy a gun; you are guilty of lying. She agreed that there really is a two-tiered ‘justice’ system, citing former FBI Director Comey’s “no reasonable prosecutor” speech about Hillary in 2016 and the current AG --- again --- calling concerned parents “domestic terrorists.” She pointed out Hunter’s obvious crimes: the gun paperwork, the lobbying without registering under FARA, the tax evasion. She also noted that some people go to jail for that even AFTER they’ve finally paid their taxes.
Were those people related to, and sharing a bank account with, the (Democrat) President of the United States? Didn’t think so.
About Hunter’s claims of “poverty” to get his child support payments lowered, it appears he’s found a way to look less wealthy on paper AND divested-but-not-really from his Chinese business interests. His so-called “sugar brother,” wealthy Hollywood entertainment lawyer Kevin Morris --- the one who paid Hunter’s tax bill and also shelled out for his $20,000-a-month Malibu rent plus car payment --- has taken control of Hunter’s stake in the Chinese private equity firm BHR. BHR Partners is co-owned by the Beijing-controlled Bank of China. Good grief. This is a must-read…
One last point: the fact that even mainstream news outlets such as WAPO are actually reporting this latest whistleblower development makes us wonder if this isn’t part of the plan to get Biden off the ticket for ‘24. There’s got to be someone from On High sending the memos, pulling the strings, moving the chess pieces around the board. Use whatever metaphor you like, but one way or another, an 82-year-old Biden (going on 102) will not be the candidate next year. Somebody else will.
