Hunter Biden, son of presidential candidate Joe Biden, revealed that federal prosecutors in Delaware contacted him about an investigation into his “tax affairs.” Since the Department of Justice (DOJ) never comments on ongoing investigations, what does Hunter Biden gain by making the investigation public? Another question must be, what will be included in the investigation?
According to CNN, the investigation is “examining multiple financial issues, including whether Hunter Biden and associates violated tax and money laundering laws in business dealings in foreign countries, principally China.” CNN also reported that the investigation had been “largely dormant in recent months” due to Justice Department rules that bar taking legal actions in cases that could affect an election.
This begs another question: would public knowledge of the investigation have changed minds about voting for Biden? It probably would have changed some minds. However, I doubt that it would have changed the minds of many of the Trump-haters. Dan Mangan reported the following information.
Publicly available documents show Hunter and his ex-wife Kathleen Buhle had an Internal Revenue Service lien against them for taxes not paid, possibly including interest and penalties, totaling $112,805.09, until this past March. The documents, filed by the IRS, show the lien was placed in November 2019. It is not immediately clear if the lien has anything to do with the investigation.
Separately, Hunter Biden had individual income tax liens of almost $453,890 placed on him by the District of Columbia on July 9, related to taxes owed for 2017 and 2018, according to a document on file in D.C. Recorder of Deeds Office. Those liens were cancelled six days later, records show.
The District of Columbia’s income tax rate is 8.95 percent for income above $1 million annually, plus about $85,000.
A second matter of interest is the laptop and hard drive that were seized by the FBI in October after the federal authorities were notified by the owner of a computer repair shop in Wilmington. A copy of the hard drive was given to a lawyer for Rudy Giuliani, who gave a copy of the hard drive to The New York Post. The laptop allegedly belonged to Hunter Biden before he forfeited by not paying the bill. Supposedly the laptop contains emails allegedly connecting Joe Biden to Hunter Biden’s business deals with China.
This information did not receive much notice by the mainstream media at the time and has been buried by the circus that was once called an election. Joe Biden is calling the dissemination of information about his son “vicious personal attacks,” but they are nothing compared to what the Trump children have endured for the past four years. Is the DOJ interested in the laptop and the information contained on it?
A third matter is public interview of Tony Bobulinski, a former business associate of Hunter Biden. In an interview with Tucker Carlson, Bobulinski confirmed “details regarding his overseas business dealings, including that a reference to a ‘Big Guy’ in a May 13, 2017 email did, in fact, refer to Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden.”
In a lengthy statement, Bobulinski identified himself as the CEO of Sinohawk Holdings, a firm he described as “a partnership between the Chinese operating through CEFC/Chairman Ye and the Biden family.” He added that Hunter Biden ad James Gilliar, another business associate, brought him on as CEO of the venture.
“Hunter Biden called his dad ‘the Big Guy’ or ‘my Chairman,’ and frequently referenced asking him for his sign-off or advice on various potential details that we were discussing,” Bobulinski said. “I’ve seen Vice President Biden saying he never talked to Hunter about his business. I’ve seen firsthand that that’s not true, because it wasn’t just Hunter’s business, they said they were putting the Biden family name and its legacy on the line.” …
“I don’t have a political ax to grind; I just saw behind the Biden curtain and I grew concerned with what I saw,” Bobulinski said. “The Biden family aggressively leveraged the Biden family name to make millions of dollars form foreign entities even though some were from communist controlled China.”
In Bobulinski’s words, Joe Biden is “compromised” as far as China is concerned. Will the DOJ probe cover the interview between Tucker Carlson and Bobulinski? What will happen to media-proclaimed “president elect” Joe Biden if evidence shows that he sold the United States out to China?
