According to a new report from Politico, the Justice Department’s interest in Hunter Biden goes beyond his taxes.
A source told Politico, investigators in Delaware and Washington were also looking into “potential money laundering” and “Hunter Biden’s” foreign ties.
The report also says Joe Biden’s younger brother, James Biden is being looked into by federal authorities.
According to the report federal authorities in the Western District of Pennsylvania are conducting a criminal investigation of a hospital business in which Joe Biden’s brother James was involved. Federal officials have asked questions about James Biden’s role in the business, according to a second person with direct knowledge of that investigation, who said it remains ongoing.”
Reacting to news of his investigation, Hunter Biden said in a statement “I take this matter very seriously but I am confident that a professional and objective review of these matters will demonstrate that I handled my affairs legally and appropriately, including with the benefit of professional tax advisors.”
Appearing on “America’s Newsroom” Senator Tom Cotton said “The Biden campaign released details of a tax fraud investigation in Wilmington. I think that was just to show maybe the least damaging part of the investigation. There are allegations of securities fraud, money laundering related to Hunter Biden’s Chinese businesses, a crooked hospital deal with Jim Biden, Joe Biden’s brother out in western Pennsylvania. These investigations span multiple jurisdictions.”
He added “If Joe Biden becomes president, then all those prosecutors are in line to be fired next month. If there were ever circumstances that create a conflict of interest and call for a special counsel, that’s here.”
