Hunter Biden, the son of Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden is facing a criminal investigation, according to a recent report. Now, the Trump campaign is demanding answers.
Author and Sinclair Broadcast Group reporter James Rosen said he was told by a Justice Department source that the FBI began investigating Hunter Biden and his business associates for money laundering in 2019, The Daily Wire reported Thursday.
What’s more, the source claims that the younger Biden was subpoenaed by the FBI last year and that its investigation remains ongoing.
“Impossible” Biden didn’t know
Tim Murtaugh, the Trump campaign’s communications director, told the Daily Wire that the former vice president needs to start giving some serious answers.
“We know that Joe Biden lied when he said — repeatedly — that he never discussed Hunter’s foreign business deals,” Murtaugh said in a statement provided to the website.
He continued, “Tony Bobulinski, a U.S. Navy veteran and former Biden family business partner, puts Joe Biden in the room during the conversations.”
“It’s impossible to believe that Joe doesn’t know that Hunter has been under federal money laundering investigation since last year,” the campaign official concluded. “Impossible.”
“Potential criminal activity”
“The Treasury records acquired by the Chairmen show potential criminal activity relating to transactions among and between Hunter Biden, his family, and his associates with Ukrainian, Russian, Kazakh and Chinese nationals,” the report reads.
It continued, “In particular, these documents show that Hunter Biden received millions of dollars from foreign sources as a result of business relationships that he built during the period when his father was vice president of the United States and after.”
The report also focused on the type of people that the Bidens have been doing business with, accusing them of “a range of criminal activities.”
“These foreign nationals have questionable backgrounds that have been identified as being consistent with a range of criminal activities, including but not limited to organized prostitution and/or human trafficking, money laundering, fraud, and embezzlement,” the report reads.
