Breaking: NYTIMES report further implicates Joe Biden in Hunter Biden Ukraine/Russia/Chiana scandal under DOJ criminal investigation. Garland STILL refusing to appoint a special counsel!— Tom Fitton (@TomFitton) March 17, 2022
Delaware U.S. Attorney David Weiss is leading a federal investigation into President Joe Biden’s adult son, who denies any wrongdoing. The New York Times reported Wednesday that the investigation, which started as “a tax inquiry” during the Obama Administration, then “widened” in 2018 to encompass “possible criminal violations of tax laws, as well as foreign lobbying and money laundering rules, according to the people familiar with the inquiry.”
The report insisted Hunter Biden’s “extensive work with foreign businesses came under scrutiny from prosecutors
looking into whether he should have registered with the Justice Department” under the Foreign Agents Registration Act. The younger Biden held a lucrative position on the board of Ukrainian energy giant Burisma when his father was Vice President. He also pursued business deals in China, Kazakhstan, and elsewhere during and after his father’s tenure. In early February 2021, President Biden asked all Senate-confirmed U.S. attorneys appointed by former President Donald Trump for their resignations, except for Weiss. John Durham was asked to step down as the U.S. attorney for the District of Connecticut but was kept on as special counsel for his review of the Russia investigation.

The New York Times report, citing its unnamed sources, noted prosecutors face “hurdles” in demonstrating that the President’s son “intentionally violated” FARA. The outlet reported that prosecutors “have discussed approaching potential FARA violations as a civil matter, which would require Mr. Biden to register retroactively as a foreign agent but would avoid criminal charges.”
2020, during the tail end of the Trump Administration, Iowa Republican Sen. Chuck Grassley pressed the Justice Department to review whether President Biden’s brother, James, and son, Hunter, should have been required to register as foreign agents of China as they pursued lucrative business deals with a since-bankrupted Chinese Communist Party-linked company led by Ye Jianming, who has since disappeared in China. Patrick Ho, one of Ye’s lieutenants, was charged by the Justice Department in 2017. The first call he reportedly made after his arrest was to James, who has said he thought the call was meant for Hunter Biden.

In 2017, ex-business partner Tony Bobulinski worked with Hunter Biden and others to create a business dubbed Sinohawk to establish a joint venture with CEFC. A Senate GOP report concluded that millions of dollars were instead sent by CEFC to accounts linked to Hunter Biden.
