US prosecutors revealed that they’re probing Hunter Biden’s taxes, leading to more calls for a special counsel to be appointed to avoid a situation in which the president’s son is being investigated by his own administration.
The son of nominal President-elect Joe Biden issued a statement on Wednesday, saying that the US Attorney’s Office in his home state of Delaware notified his lawyers and that he expects a “professional and objective review” to demonstrate that he handled his taxes legally and appropriately with the help of professional advisers.
Representative Ken Buck (R-Colorado) had already called earlier this week for a special counsel to investigate Hunter Biden’s overseas business dealings to ensure that foreign governments aren’t able to use blackmail to influence US policies if Joe Biden takes office in January, 2021.
By appointing a special counsel who could operate independently, the government would avoid having the investigation done through the Department of Justice, which could become part of the Biden administration.
Trump demanded in October that Barr open an investigation of Hunter Biden after reports by the New York Post alleged that the Biden family profited from peddling of political influence in Ukraine and China.
Allegations against the younger Biden got only limited exposure because the influence-peddling reports were censored on social media and largely ignored by the mainstream media.
Veteran journalist James Rosen reported in late October that the FBI began an investigation of alleged money laundering by Hunter Biden and his business associates in 2019.
Republican political strategist Andrew Surabian pointed out that like the influence-peddling reports, the money-laundering allegations were ignored by mainstream media outlets.
Law professor Jonathan Turley said he found it “curious” that Hunter Biden said he first learned of the investigation on Tuesday, given that the laptop he left at a Delaware repair shop had been subpoenaed by the FBI in 2019.
Many of us discussed the 2019 subpoena in the case for his laptop as an obvious indicator of a criminal investigation.”
It’s obvious he was laundering money for the big guy Beijing Biden. There’s never been so much evidence, including video confessions of taking bribes and organizing voter fraud, of crimes and no prosecution.
