Report: DOJ source claims Hunter Biden has been under ‘criminal investigation’ since 2019

Could criminal charges be in Hunter Biden’s future? According to one reporter, the Justice Department may already be considering it.

The Washington Examiner reported Thursday that “James Rosen, a reporter with the Sinclair Broadcast Group,” learned from an unnamed source at the Department of Justice (DOJ) that the FBI is actively engaged in a criminal investigation into the son of Democrat White House hopeful Joe Biden — and they’ve reportedly been working on that investigation since 2019.

According to the Examiner, the FBI has not confirmed or denied Rosen’s claims. “We have no comment, in keeping with our standard practice of neither confirming nor denying the existence of an investigation,” an FBI spokesperson told the outlet.

“I have firsthand knowledge”

The issue of alleged corruption on the part of the Bidens has been in the headlines since the New York Post dropped a bombshell report a few weeks back alleging that they had obtained the hard drive from a laptop said to have belonged to Hunter Biden, and on it — according to the Post‘s report — were emails that implicated Joe Biden in his son Hunter’s overseas business dealings.

The former vice president, for his part, has long maintained that he knew little if anything about his son’s business endeavors, and he’s doubled down in the wake of new reports. But a former business associate of the family, Tony Bobulinski, recently came out to refute those claims.

“I have heard Joe Biden say he has never discussed his dealings with Hunter. That is false,” Bobulinski said at a press conference earlier this month, according to the New York Post. “I have firsthand knowledge about this because I directly dealt with the Biden family, including Joe Biden.”

As the Examiner reported, Bobulinski later confirmed to Rosen that he spoke with the FBI about Hunter Biden earlier this month.

“How are you guys getting away with this?”

A U.S. Navy veteran, Bobulinski has said he was first alarmed years ago by activities involving the Bidens and China. During an interview Tuesday with Fox News personality Tucker Carlson, Bobulinski spoke of an exchange he had with Jim Biden, Joe Biden’s brother. 

“I remember saying, ‘How are you guys getting away with this?’ ‘Aren’t you concerned?’” Bobulinski recalled. According to Fox, he told Carlson that Jim Biden had just two words for him: “Plausible Deniability.”

Only time will tell, however, if those two words hold enough weight to convince voters to let Uncle Joe off the hook.
