Fox News reported Wednesday that Sen. Rand Paul plans to refer Democratic candidate Joe Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, to the Department of Justice for a “criminal referral.” The call for a referral came on the heels of a Senate report, which revealed that more than $3.5 million had been transferred into his bank account from the wife of a former Moscow Mayor, among other suspicious financial transactions.

The explosive report released by Senator’s Ron Johnson, Chairman of the Senate Homeland Security Committee, and Chuck Grassley, Chairman of the Senate Finance Committee, revealed that the U.S. Treasury Department had been monitoring suspicious transactions into Hunter Biden’s bank account from Russia, Ukraine and China.

The lengthy report showed that Hunter Biden took $3.5 million in a wire transfer from Elena Baturina. Baturina is the richest woman in Russia and the widow of Yury Luzhkov, the former mayor of Moscow, with links to Vladimir Putin. The wire transfer took place in 2014, during the time Vice President Biden was serving in the Obama administration. “Baturina became Russia’s only female billionaire when her plastics company, Inteko, received a series of Moscow municipal contracts while her husband was mayor,” the report noted.

Paul told Fox News that the transaction is highly suspicious and should be investigated by the Department of Justice.

“I think riding on Air Force Two and doing business is illegal. I think that is against the law, and probably a felony. I think it’s illegal to take money from a Russian politician’s wife, $3.5 million,” Paul told Fox News. “Was it reported accurately? I think the only way to determine the actual legality of this is to have it referred to the Department of Justice. So, I’m going to send the report over. I don’t know if the whole committee will vote for it, but I’m sending the report, tomorrow, to the Department of Justice, and we’re asking for a criminal referral.”

Another key finding in the report alleges that “Hunter Biden had business associations with Ye Jianming, Gongwen Dong, and other Chinese nationals linked to the Communist government and the People’s Liberation Army. Those associations resulted in millions of dollars in cash flow.”

As alarming, another finding in the report shows that “Hunter Biden paid nonresident women who were nationals of Russia or other Eastern European countries and who appear to be linked to an ‘Eastern European prostitution or human trafficking ring.’”

Hunter Biden’s work with Burisma Holdings was highly criticized behind closed doors when his father was Vice President. Former Vice President Joe Biden had been put in charge of overseeing foreign issues with Ukraine when his son became a paid board member for Burisma, in which he received a salary of roughly $50,000 per month.

There is ‘repeated evidence’ of non-citizens voting

There is “repeated evidence” of non-citizens voting, Rep. Chip Roy (R-TX) said during an appearance on Breitbart News Daily, discussing the Safeguard American Voter Eligibility (SAVE) Act.

“Let me just say this about the overall state of the election issue,” Roy began, explaining that “we’ve got repeated evidence of those who are here illegally — or, or whether they’re here legally — but non-citizens voting.”

“We’ve got studies demonstrating that. We’ve got evidence that it may have tipped the election for Al Franken and his election back in Minnesota. Objective studies have showed…Virginia tossing out 1,500 registered voters just last year. I can go through a laundry list. We’ve got local jurisdictions — Oakland, San Francisco, our nation’s capital in Washington, DC, and New York City — who are registering voters specifically for their state and local elections, but we know that they don’t work hard to make sure they’re not voting in federal elections,” he said, noting that “federal law prohibits [and] limits the ability of states to be able to check and ensure citizenship, so much so that the state of Arizona has to run two systems — one for their state local elections and one for their federal elections.”

“They’re literally bifurcated because they want to ensure citizenship for their state and local elections, but they’re not allowed to for federal elections. Therefore, we need to fix the problem,” he said.

Breitbart News adds:

Further, Roy said, because of the Motor Voter Act — the National Voter Registration Act — passed in the 1990s, the courts have interpreted federal laws to limit the state’s ability to “determine and collect the information necessary for determining and checking citizenship.”

Essentially, Roy said the U.S. has set up a system that requires federal agencies to push out the forms, encouraging individuals to register to vote. And while they ask one to identify if they are a citizen, and while federal law requires one to be a citizen to vote in federal elections, the congressman said there is nothing there to actually check citizenship.

The SAVE Act would help address these issues and correct what Roy described as the “glitch,” making it so every state would require anyone applying to register to vote to prove their citizenship.

“By doing that, though, it is correcting the glitch. It also goes through and it addresses some of the issues that have been complicated. There are states, for example, like North Dakota, which does not have voter registration at all, okay? So they can just show up to vote and don’t have registration…They have their own rules there about what you have to present in order just to vote. And that’s obviously a less populated state than, say, California or Texas or New York or Florida. But, so, we adapt and try to adjust to help with those kinds of situations. But, overall, the purpose of the bill is exactly as you just described, pretty simple,” Roy said. This is a bipartisan issue with massive support.
