Congress Continues Investigating Hunter Biden Scandal

Members of the US Congress are becoming increasingly concerned about the Biden family’s business dealings, which were kept from the public before the 2020 US election, due to what they claim is a political cone of silence protecting the family. Senate Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations top Republican Ron Johnson said that the more investigators dig, the uglier the truth becomes.

Two new allegations came to light on May 3, when Senators Johnson and Chuck Grassley formally accused Secretary of State Antony Blinken of giving Congress a “patently false” account about his dealings with Hunter Biden during the Obama years. Meanwhile, House members are seeking answers from Blinken about his contacts with former CIA Director Mike Morell that eventually led to a letter in October 2020, signed by 51 former and current US intelligence officials, that suggested the Hunter Biden laptop story was Russian disinformation. It was not.

Additionally, Rep. Scott Perry has written to key oversight committees in both chambers of Congress, urging them to investigate whether the Department of Justice allowed presidential son Hunter Biden off easy in its probe of alleged tax offences. This was prompted by emails on Hunter Biden’s laptop stating that the presidential son had been warned he failed to declare $400,000 in income from his Burisma Holdings job in Ukraine dating to 2014 and owed back taxes. An IRS supervisory criminal agent has received whistleblower protection from both the Justice Department inspector general and Congress so that he can convey evidence of what he claims was political interference and preferential treatment by the Biden DOJ. If he can substantiate his allegations, it would contradict the testimony of Attorney General Merrick Garland, who has claimed prosecutors leading the case have full authority to make decisions and have not been interfered with.

House Oversight and Accountability Committee Chairman James Comer has said there are growing questions in Washington about whether the DOJ probe is too narrowly focused on tax transactions from 2018 forward instead of earlier deals dating to 2014 that involved Russia, China and Ukraine.
