Federal investigation of Hunter Biden heats up

Source: CNN

Washington (CNN)A Justice Department investigation into Hunter Biden's business activities has gained steam in recent months, with a flurry of witnesses providing testimony to federal investigators and more expected to provide interviews in the coming weeks, according to multiple sources familiar with the matter.

The probe, led by the US Attorney in Wilmington, Delaware, began as early as 2018 and concerns multiple financial and business activities in foreign countries dating to when Biden's father was vice president. Investigators have examined whether Hunter Biden and some of his associates violated money laundering, tax and foreign lobbying laws, as well as firearm and other regulations, multiple sources said.

To do so, law enforcement has gathered information from lobbyists connected to Hunter Biden, from his business partners, and from others who've observed his financial engagements, including a woman with whom he had a child.

Hunter Biden has not been charged with any crimes and has denied any wrongdoing. His father, President Joe Biden is not being investigated as part of the probe of his son's business activities, according to sources who have been briefed.

This is madness. Garland needs to put an end to this right now and focus on the insurrection!

5. Hunter should be target number 1 million and 1 of shady businesses being investigated.

Our markets, our economy, our country are being gamed everyday by shady operators. Corruption is an integral part of many business plans. Paying fines and legal fees for illegal activity is built into corporate budgets.

How did Hunter become a priority?

19. +1

What it seems like to me is Garland wrapping up an errant investigation that needs to come to its conclusion which will likely absolve Hunter Biden of wrong doing thus putting the matter to rest.

Simply truncating an investigation causes public and institutional indigestion, by wrapping it up within procedural parameters makes sense, the conclusions are what matter.

28. No doubt, Garland is completely hands off with regard to this.

And not just because he is no Bill Barr. The way DoJ is organized this would fall under supervision by an AAG in DoJ, the AAG overseeing criminal division.

I'm pissed. But RW money pushes our negative MSM drama of the current POTUS like they never did with trump while he was in office. His daughter-advisor left the WH after having made 640million dollars on the WH brand while serving her father as an 'advisor'. Millions of dollars of Election money also went missing after the defeat of TPOSFG. What the hell!!! And Melanoma is very, very quiet. The secrets she must know.

But Hunter is a much bigger threat to the nation. Well done Garland, you make Comey and Barr proud.

20. Or...

perhaps, rather than stir up a shitstorm by simply pulling the plug on this stupid investigation, it is speeding up to a conclusion that will be more in line with putting the matter to rest and moving on.

Due process matters as does the conclusion of an investigation. If there's no there there, it will be expressed in the conclusion. It also means there's little/no whining about truncating a live investigation for alleged political reasons from the Q crowd.

13. This stinks of the Federalist society ...

Everyone associated with this group should be treated like the Klan members they are.

Comey Listed on the Federalist Society wenite as a contributor) made comments about Hillary that likely suppressed the vote and helpd tRump win. [link:https://fedsoc.org/contributors/james-comey|


They have been selecting unqualified zealots as judges and have infiltrated the DOJ, FBI, etc.

I would better dollars to donuts that whoever started this Hunter Biden crapola and the people approving its continued existance are members of the Federalist Society trying to do a smear job rather than prosecute real money launders and criminals like the Trump org.

If you are a member of the Federalist society, you should not be allowed to work for DOJ. You are an openly partisan hack.

15. Wow folks, they are throwing the kitchen sink at Hunter,

this has been going on since 2018.

The investigation is being overseen by David C. Weiss, the U.S. attorney for Delaware. He worked in the office during the Bush and Obama administrations, and was nominated to run it by Trump. Mr. Weiss has been permitted to remain in office until the Biden case is resolved.

I mean they have all kinds of prosecutors going after him. He was nailed for not paying his taxes which he said was over a million dollars. he said he took out a loan to pay his taxes.

I mean they have a grand jury convened looking at Hunter, they are going after him for laundering money, for not registering as a foreign agent.

I only wish DOJ would do the same grand jury for the coup insurrectionists.

23. ohh, hunter biden

investigation heats up, trump crime family investigation cools down, right? this is madness. DOJ priorities are skewed it seems to me. Hunter Biden was already investigated for some financial misdeed, with no indictments-charges made. The trump crime family was the head of a coup de'tat against our democratic form of government, with no charges of consequence, yet. Well, the media needs drama to sell their advertising, and the owners and editors of MSM are by and large RW fascists. So trump's crimes are going to be dropped probably by 'trickle down' bribe money I guess. Bragg in New York has already started the cleaning up of the trump crime family. Yet the Biden family is somehow involved in WTF!!!!???

I am always amazed at how the trump crime family slithers out of trouble.

Garland has to make the truth come out if he is allowed to do so

27. I call for DoJ to be fair

...whether Hunter Biden and some of his associates violated money laundering, tax and foreign lobbying laws, as well as firearm and other regulations,...

If ANY of this is true, then I submit that TFG and his RW cabal are guilty of far worse. If they find anything on Hunter, then they must start prosecutions on TFG and his minions as well. If they don't nail any of TFG's gang, then there's nothing to see with Hunter.

This sounds like a holdover investigation from TFG's era. In the onslaught of RW criminality Garland's DoJ is trying to "look fair" by showing they're investigating Dems, too.

30. Why is this in the news?

Obviously, because he's the President's son and the six companies controlling about 95% of US media favors Republican taxation policies.

He's innocent until proven guilty.
He's not a public figure by personal choice.

There shouldn't be much more news than they're investigating something because he is an innocent man until proven otherwise.

Instead, we have national headlines.

I would distinguish with Trump's children because they were very much involved in the White House, etc - making themselves public figures.

It is way way past time to deport the entire Trump Political Mafia family and many Republican Senators......
