Breaking Tuesday, New York’s lieutenant governor Brian Benjamin was arrested and charged with bribery and other federal offenses. “The charges are related to a scheme in which Benjamin is alleged to have funneled state funds to a Harlem real estate developer in exchange for illegal campaign contributions” reports National Review.

The indictment, which states offenses dating back to Benjamin’s time as a New York state senator reads that Benjamin:

Participated in a scheme to obtain campaign contributions from a real estate developer (“CC-1″) in exchange for Benjamin’s agreement to use, and his actual use of, his official authority and influence as a New York state senator to obtain a $50,000 grant of state funds…for a non-profit organization controlled by CC-1

Benjamin was appointed as Lieutenant Governor by New York Governor Kathy Hochul in August of 2021. “The illegal contributions were allegedly directed to Benjamin during his unsuccessful campaign for New York City comptroller, according to the indictment. The developer was previously indicted in November 2021 in connection with the case” reports National Review.

‘Coordinated effort’ to hide Hunter Biden information: Treasury denies request for reports

Published

The United States Treasury Department has denied Republicans’ request for reports and documents which deal with the President’s son, Hunter Biden. In a bizarre response, Treasury legislative affairs chief Jonathan Davidson sent a letter to the House Oversight and Accountability Chairman James Comer saying they need more detail as to why the panel its seeking such “highly sensitive information.”

Apparently suspicious activity surrounding the President of the United States’ son doing business deals, foreign banking and transactions with overseas entities including China and Ukraine is not obvious enough.

Davidson’s letter did not acknowledge whether such reports on the Bidens exist, but instructed Comer that “improper disclosure” of such information can undermine the executive branch’s “conduct of law enforcement, intelligence, and national security activities.”

Comer responded that “this coordinated effort by the Biden Administration to hide information about President Biden and his family’s shady business schemes is alarming and raises many questions.”

Comer added the panel will continue to request the reports and will use “the power of the gavel to get them if needed.”

Bloomberg News reports:

Comer and other Republicans already said they have evidence that finances, credit cards, and bank accounts of Hunter and Joe Biden were commingled if not shared.

And in an interim report released in November, Republicans surmised that the Treasury Department has at least 150 SARs related to financial transactions of Biden family members.

Nonetheless, in his letter to Yellen, Comer explained, “The Committee is investigating President Biden’s knowledge of and role in these schemes to assess whether he has compromised our national security at the expense of the American people.”

Comer added the committee also “will examine drafting legislation to strengthen federal ethics laws regarding employees and their families.”
