The Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs (HSGAC) recently released its report on Hunter Biden’s conflict-of-interest while he sat on the board of corrupt energy company, Burisma Holdings, and the Biden family’s involvement with corrupt oligarchs while Joe Biden served as Vice President.
The report included new details showing Biden had multiple business associates with Chinese nationals with ties to the Communist government and its People’s Liberation Army. The report also released new details regarding Biden’s acceptance of a $3.5 million wire transfer from the Elena Baturina, the wife of former Moscow mayor and a known associate of Vladamir Putin. However, when this bombshell report was made public it was met with silence from the press and simply swept under the rug.
Senator Ron Johnson is not letting the obvious hypocrisy slide and is calling out the big-name media channels for their liberally slanted reporting if it can even be called reporting at this point. Most media companies attempted to spin the report simply as repackaged information that was already made public. Johnson made it clear that had any of these outlets actually taken the time to read the full report they would have seen the new details which came to light.
In an article for Fox News Senator Ron Johnson brought some of the report’s details to light that was ignored by the media:
“That a top official at the State Department, Amos Hochstein, was worried the Putin regime was using Hunter Biden’s association with Burisma to undermine U.S.-Ukraine policy. He spoke to Vice President Biden about his concerns because, according to Hochstein, Russians were using Hunter Biden’s role to advance disinformation. This means Joe Biden knew that his son’s business dealings cast a shadow over his own role in Ukraine policy — yet he did not resolve the conflict by changing his son’s behavior or stepping aside from his role.
Records indicate that Hunter Biden as well as other members of the Biden family received numerous money transfers from individuals and organizations associated with potential criminal activity. Hunter Biden had business associations with Chinese nationals linked to the Communist government and its People’s Liberation Army. Those associations resulted in a massive cash flow — such as the $4,790,375.25 paid to his company in one 13-month stretch as “consulting fees.”
Hunter Biden opened a bank account with one of those Chinese nationals, Gongwen Dong, that funded a $100,000 spending spree by himself, the vice president’s brother, James Biden, and his wife, Sara Biden. The Bidens used credit cards issued by the account to purchase $101,291.46 in airline tickets and merchandise from Apple stores, pharmacies, hotels and restaurants, among other things.”
The lack of media attention on what could easily be one of the biggest scandals in 2020 drew outrage from the Trump family who has been the subject of relentless attacks from the press since Trump won the presidency in 2016.
President Trump called out the press during a White House press briefing, “if we had media that was fair-even just reasonable- this would be the biggest story for years and years.”
Donald Trump Jr. took to Twitter to express his infuriation and frustration over the media’s clear hypocrisy when reporting on Trump compared to Biden.
And she’s a known associate of Vladimir Putin. I wish the media would hold Hunter to the same standard they tryed to hold me to! If I did what Hunter did I’d be in jail by now, but that’s not the way the activist/leftist media plays the game for the Dems. https://t.co/hNR5pQ7hvK

Pro Tip: Media will totally ignore Biden’s links to Putin and human trafficking/prostitution ring $$$s at all costs.
Their only goal is to hurt Trump even though they now inadvertently proved he has no financial ties to Russia… unlike the Biden’s. https://t.co/D0ZXJtt1nL

It’s easy to see the sides media outlets have taken regardless of the fact their sole purpose is to report the truth to the American people. But only if that truth negatively affects Republicans.
Johnson asked, “Why did it fall to our committees to detail the payments from people running Chinese state-owned enterprises to the son of a potential future president? Why didn’t the legacy media bring this to light? The answer is that either the information we uncovered is indeed news — or the news outlets dismissing it were derelict in their duty.”
