With Republicans now wielding a much larger weapon in Congress than they did even a few months ago, (in the form of a serviceable House majority), it was only a matter of time before the nation started getting answers regarding President Joe Biden’s involvement in the “family business”.
Rumors have swirled for years about influence-peddling schemes running through now-First Son Hunter Biden, from the Ukrainian natural gas industry all the way to the international art market.
Now, with the GOP taking rather sharp aim at Hunter, an FBI whistleblower has allegedly stepped forward to suggest that there is hard evidence of this international nepotism routine.
Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA), who testified Thursday before the House’s new Select Subcommittee on Political Weaponization, said whistleblower disclosures indicate the FBI has evidence that President Joe Biden is aware of the family business schemes, a statement that directly contradicts the president.
Joe Biden and his staff have claimed seven times that he’s had no part in the family business schemes.
“I’ve never spoken to my son about his overseas business dealings. Here’s what I know — I know Trump deserves to be investigated,”Biden claimed in 2019.
But Sen. Grassley, speaking before the first “Select Subcommittee on the Weaponization of the Federal Government” hearing, told House members that whistleblower disclosures “make clear the FBI has within its possession very significant, impactful, and voluminous evidence with respect to potential criminal conduct by Hunter and James Biden.”
“These disclosures also allege that Joe Biden was aware of Hunter Biden’s business arrangements and may have been involved in some of them,” Grassley added.
Meanwhile, Hunter Biden has gone on the offensive, demanding that those connected to recovering his abandoned “laptop from Hell” preserve any and all records they have from around that time as inevitable legal action looms.
This includes former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, who was deeply involved with the story.
