    Joe Biden is running against Donald Trump’s character and supposed corruption, so a Senate report documenting the Biden family’s ethical swampiness certainly counts as news. Senate committee Chairmen Ron Johnson and Chuck Grassley on Wednesday released the findings of their year-long investigation into the problems that the business dealings of Hunter Biden, Joe’s son, presented to the Obama-Biden administration. The report makes clear Hunter was profiting off his father’s position—in Ukraine, and notably in China. Foreigners knew they were buying influence by association. The Ukrainian gas company Burisma hired Hunter to “consult” on corporate governance in May 2014, only weeks...

    There was a widespread blackout of television coverage surrounding the damning revelations from the GOP-led Senate report on Hunter Biden's foreign financial ties. The Senate Homeland Security and Finance committees on Wednesday released an interim report on their monthslong joint investigation into Hunter Biden’s role on the board of Ukrainian natural gas firm Burisma Holdings and his alleged “extensive and complex financial transactions.” However, in addition to new findings regarding Biden's ties to Burisma, the report states that Senate investigators found millions of dollars in “questionable financial transactions” between Hunter Biden, who is a son of Democrat presidential candidate Joe...
  • Hunter Biden Protected by Impeachment Until Now

    The Senate’s Hunter Biden report has thrust the former vice president’s wayward son back into the spotlight he managed to mostly avoid since the end of the impeachment ordeal that wrapped up with a Senate acquittal in February. My book, “Abuse of Power: Inside the Three-Year Campaign to Impeach Donald Trump,” demonstrates how the Trump impeachment might have been ridiculous, but was by no means inconsequential. The biggest consequence might have been a media blackout on Hunter’s financial dealings from scrutiny. Much of what the 87-page report from Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee and the Finance Committee goes well...

    'I think riding on Air Force Two and doing business is illegal,' Paul tells 'The Story' Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., plans to refer the Senate Homeland Security and Finance Committees' report on their investigation into Hunter Biden's overseas business dealings to the Department of Justice later this week, he told "The Story" Wednesday. "I think riding on Air Force Two and doing business is illegal ... and probably a felony," Paul told host Martha MacCallum. "I think it's illegal to take money from a Russian politician's wife, $3.5 million, was it reported accurately?" Paul was referencing items from the new...
  • Hunter Biden’s Business Dealings Created ‘Counterintelligence And Extortion Concerns,’ Senate Report Says

    Hunter Biden’s financial dealings with Ukrainian, Russian and Chinese businesses created potential “criminal financial, counterintelligence and extortion concerns,” according to a report by two Senate committees. The report details a series of wire transfers between Biden and a businessman with extensive ties to the Chinese Communist Party. The report, written by the Senate Homeland Security and Senate Finance committees, also states that State Department officials repeatedly raised concerns about Hunter Biden’s work for Burisma Holdings. One official testified that he told Joe Biden in October 2015 that his son’s links to Burisma “enabled Russian disinformation efforts.” U.S. banks flagged suspicious...
  • Report: Obama Admin Knew Hunter Biden’s Burisma Position ‘Interfered With Execution’ of Ukraine Policy

    “Moreover, this investigation has illustrated the extent to which officials within the Obama administration ignored the glaring warning signs when the vice president’s son joined the board of a company owned by a corrupt Ukrainian oligarch.” The Republican-led Senate Homeland Security and Finance Committees released the interim report on Joe Biden’s son Hunter’s role on the Burisma board, a Ukrainian natural gas firm. I remember many publications raising an eyebrow when Hunter joined the Burisma board, especially since President Barack Obama appointed his then-Vice President Joe Biden to oversee Ukraine’s transition from a presidency under a pro-Russian president to a...

    An earthshattering report released by Senate investigators Wednesday outlining the Biden family’s long list of conflicts of interest at the upper echelons of government unearthed new allegations of former Vice President Joe Biden’s son making multiple payments to Eastern European prostitutes. According to the joint report out by the Senate Homeland Security and Government Affairs Committee with the Senate Treasury Committee, Hunter Biden made a number of payments to foreign nationals with “questionable backgrounds” consistent with “organized prostitution and/or human trafficking.” Records on file with the committee, the report says, “confirm that Hunter Biden sent thousands of dollars to individuals...

    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...

    A bombshell report from the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs (HSGAC) and the Committee on Finance makes a series of damning new allegations against Hunter Biden, the son of Democrat presidential nominee. The investigation launched after Finance Committee Chairman Charles Grassley (R-IA) publicly raised conflict-of-interest concerns about the sale of a U.S. company to a Chinese firm with ties to Hunter Biden a month before Congress was notified about a whistleblower complaint that was the catalyst for Democrats’ impeachment of President Donald Trump. The Senate’s investigation relied on records from the U.S. government, Democrat lobbying groups, and...

    Former Secretary of State John Kerry falsely claimed in 2019 that he had no knowledge of Hunter Biden’s role on the board of Burisma Holdings, Inc., according to the Senate report on Biden’s financial dealings released on Wednesday.

    Last year Joe Biden bragged about how he coerced Ukraine into firing its top prosecutor Victor Shokin by threatening that the Obama administration would pull $1 billion in U.S. loan guarantees from them. While this type of interference in a foreign government by the then-Vice President of the United States is highly inappropriate in itself, what makes it even worse is that the prosecutor he got fired was probing a firm for which his son Hunter Biden worked. A phone call between Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden and former Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko was leaked on Sept. 15 showing the...

    State, DOJ officials reported to FBI concerns Ukraine gas firm made bribe to local prosecutors while under corruption investigation. Just eight months after Vice President Joe Biden's son Hunter joined the board of Burisma Holdings, U.S. officials in Kiev developed evidence that the Ukrainian gas company may have paid a $7 million bribe to the local prosecutors investigating the firm for corruption, according to interviews and State Department memos. State officials believed the alleged bribe was paid between May and December 2014 and got confirmation from one prosecutor. They argued the bribe amounted to a "gross miscarriage of justice that...
