A new Senate report released on Wednesday morning reveals that former Vice President Joe Biden allowed family members to take advantage of his position to enrich themselves through business deals with foreign countries.
During his time in office, Biden did nothing to address the conflict of interest created by the dealings of his son, Hunter Biden, with Ukrainian energy giant Burisma and China.
Biden officially busted
GOP figures have warned for over a year that the trumped-up impeachment charges against Donald Trump were part of a cover-up for the shady dealings of the Biden family that were being exposed just as Joe Biden’s presidential campaign began picking up.
Now, an interim report of a Senate investigation launched in August of 2019 has been made public, and Biden can no longer dismiss allegations of misconduct — and the final report still has yet to be released.
Sens. Ron Johnson (R-WI) of the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs and Chuck Grassley (R-IA) of the Senate Committee on Finance headed up the investigation that was officially launched just before the impeachment controversy heated up, but just after Trump’s now-infamous call with the Ukrainian president.
As many members of the GOP suspected, the senate report “details examples of extensive and complex financial transactions involving the Bidens” and emphasized that Hunter Biden “was not the only Biden who cashed in on Joe Biden’s vice presidency.”
“This investigation has illustrated the extent to which officials within the Obama administration ignored the glaring warning signs when the vice president’s son joined the board of a company owned by a corrupt Ukrainian oligarch,” the report stated.
The report found that Hunter Biden made millions of dollars from his “significant relationships” established with Burisma founder, Mykola Zolchevsky, during his father’s time in the White House.
The report went on to explain that Treasury Department documents “show potential criminal activity relating to transactions among and between Hunter Biden, his family, and his associates with Ukrainian, Russian, Kazakh and Chinese nationals.”
Johnson and Grassley noted that the investigation is not over, and that “there remains much work to be done” but that Democrats have repeatedly blocked attempts to gather evidence.
The GOP senators said they have “faced many obstacles” from their Democrat colleagues and that executive agencies “failed to comply with document requests,” hence why the investigation appears to be so drawn out.
However, this interim report establishes that the Biden family did profit from Joe Biden’s eight years in the White House and that the Obama administration went to great lengths to dismiss and suppress questions about the clear conflicts of interest presented by allowing the Biden family to abuse Joe Biden’s office.
