The GOP is planning to investigate Hunter Biden’s illicit foreign business deals to the fullest extent, including funds he paid to Russia-linked escorts.
The Washington Examiner reports:
“If I’m reelected and Republicans gain the majority, I would become chairman of the Senate Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations,” Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI) told the Washington Examiner. “In that position, I will continue to investigate the corruption and potential criminal activity that Chuck Grassley and I exposed in our September 2020 report which included Hunter Biden’s financial transactions that were linked to what appeared to be an ‘Eastern European prostitution or human trafficking ring.’”
Johnson added: “As bad as the sleaze and corruption of the Biden Inc. family is, what troubles me even more is the complicity and corruption of the legacy media and certain elements within our federal law enforcement and intelligence agencies. That corruption needs to be investigated.”
The bombshell announcement comes after the Washington Examiner reported that the president apparently unwittingly financed his son’s participation in an escort ring tied to Russia, records from a copy of Hunter Biden’s abandoned laptop show, and some of the younger Biden’s payments may have generated suspicious activity reports with his banks. Biden spent over $30,000 on escorts, many of whom were linked to “.ru” Russian email addresses and worked with an “exclusive model agency” called UberGFE, during a period of 3 1/2 months between November 2018 and March 2019. He managed to do so thanks in part to Joe Biden committing to wiring him a total of $100,000 to help pay his bills from December 2018 to January 2019.
A 2020 Senate report by Grassley (R-IA) and Johnson said: “Hunter Biden paid nonresident women who were nationals of Russia or other Eastern European countries,” and records note some of these transactions are linked to what “appears to be an Eastern European prostitution or human trafficking ring.”
According to the report Mr. Biden engaged in “transactions consistent with possible human trafficking” or “potential association with prostitution.” Some of the women “subsequently wired funds they have received from Hunter Biden to individuals located in Russia and Ukraine.”
