Hunter Biden Received a $3.5 Million Payment From Ex-Moscow Mayor's Wife, Republican Report Says
NEWSWEEK ^ | 9/23/2020 | jason lemon

Posted on 09/23/2020 9:02:02 AM PDT by bitt

New report from Senate Republicans alleges that Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden's son Hunter Biden received a $3.5 million payment from the wealthy wife of Moscow's former mayor, amid a slew of other financial transactions and entanglements that federal government officials warned presented conflicts of interest as the former vice president spearheaded the Obama administration's Ukraine policy.

Democrats have dismissed the Republican report, which was released Wednesday, as playing up Russian misinformation, and the 87-page document did not demonstrate that Hunter Biden's financial entanglements impacted U.S. policy. But it emphasized that government officials flagged concerns about potential conflicts of interest and that the former vice president's son's financial interests with foreign governments "accelerated" during the administration of former President Barack Obama.

"Hunter Biden received a $3.5 million wire transfer from Elena Baturina, the wife of the former mayor of Moscow," the Republican report, which was the result of an investigation led by GOP Senator Ron Johnson of Wisconsin, explained as one of its "key findings."

Baturina, a billionaire, was previously married to Yuri Luzhkov, who served as mayor of Moscow but was fired for alleged corruption in 2010. The report details how Biden's business received a $3.5 million payment from Baturina in February 2014, which was described to be for "consultancy" work. In 2015, Biden also received several payments of several hundred thousand dollars from Baturina, several of which were listed as part of a "loan agreement."

The purpose of the Democrat Party is to elect liars and thieves to public office so that they have access to the public treasuries in order to loot them.

absolutely! 100% chance that money was used to purchase SOMETHING. And since that something is undisclosed, there is another 100% chance it is/was illegal...

These folks all have “D”s after their name making them “exempt from law, corruption, scandal, etc.
NOTHING will become of it..ever. Now move along, citizen.
The Clintonians are the classic example. The Toons will NEVER be convicted of anything.

What is your opinion on the ramifications of this on the election? I am asking seriously. It takes a lot to change people’s vote. I think enough people will find out because of social media but will they say it’s just his son or will they connect the dots?

“It is bad that even Newsweak is documenting the Biden Criminal actions.”

That’s more shocking than the “alleged” activities.

Last sentence in this unbiased story (I can't bring myself to call it a news report):

President Donald Trump and his company the Trump Organization have widespread business interests around the world, several of which have been connected by reports to alleged money laundering and potentially nefarious activities.

Hope Hunter remembered to put that income down on his 1040.
