The NY Post’s EXPLOSIVE expose on Hunter Biden warrants a full federal criminal probe. Where is the FBI?
There’s no way around it. The New York Post’s explosive investigation, expose and the alleged personal emails exchanged between Hunter Biden and unscrupulous business officials in China and Ukraine warrant a full criminal investigation by the FBI.
Like everything we’ve discovered and uncovered over the last four years connected to the malfeasance at the FBI and its now debunked investigation into President Donald Trump and Russia during that 2016 election, I’m questioning why the bureau didn’t conduct a full blown investigation into the Hunter Biden emails considering his father is now the Democratic nominee for the presidency.
In fact, it’s unfathomable that the bureau sat on these alleged Hunter emails since last December. They’ve had these emails and so did former New York Mayor and longtime advisor and friend to Trump, Rudy Giuliani. It was allegedly given to both the FBI and Giuliani at the same time last December by a computer repairman who was supposedly fixing Hunter’s computer at a Delaware shop.
But the information was never made public until Giuliani finally turned over the information to the New York Post. He, like everyone connected to the bureau’s actions against the President, was aware that the Democratic nominee Joe Biden and his family may have allegedly profited off their connection to his previous role as Vice President.
If the Bidens did profit from these unprincipled transactions that would come at a heavy price. Nation’s like China, Russia, Ukraine, as well as others, have intelligence agencies that would use this against the Vice President if he were to become President.
These state actors may also have other information on Joe Biden’s family, particularly his son, that the family wouldn’t want public.
It’s not just that Hunter Biden had a wild lifestyle and penchant for drinking and narcotics. Many people have family members like Hunter. What makes him a perfect target for foreign intelligence agencies is that it appears that his father used his position to allow his family to amass wealth.
That presents a large number of risks for his father, Joe, as well as our nation.
But it’s the alleged Hunter emails that have me most concerned. It’s their contents that are so revealing.
It’s difficult to ascertain in today’s world whether something is the real thing or a forgery. If these are real the FBI should let the American public know. Director Christopher Wray should make a statement because this is an election year and the American people should understand what they are dealing with and who they are voting for.
It’s not our job, unless we are trained, to ascertain whether or not all of these emails are real and whether or not the person in Delaware who delivered the alleged hard drive to Giuliani is a straight shooter or someone wrapped up in a terrible scheme.
We need to know because based on numerous reports and facts presented by Senate investigators, Hunter Biden was traveling extensively with his father to China on Air Force One, while he was Vice President.
Allegedly, it was also during the same time frame that he was cutting large financial deals with Chinese companies that were connected extensively with the Chinese Community Party.
He was allegedly pocketing millions of dollars, not only from China, but from Ukraine energy giant Burisma Holdings, which was an unscrupulous company that was under investigation by the Ukrainian government. More importantly, his father, who was also then the Vice President, was overseeing U.S. policy for Ukraine under President Obama.
The implications of all of these connections could be devastating if Biden wins the election in November.
Just look at what The Post’s story Thursday revealed and those implications. According to the emails released by the paper, Hunter Biden was allegedly chasing down lucrative deals involving another energy company in China. He was using his father’s name and position to do so.
In fact, the company that he was pursuing – CEFC- was one of the largest private energy companies connected to the Chinese Communist Party.
He sent an email to the company saying that it would be “interesting for me and my family” to know more about the company The Post emails show. Those emails were obtained by The Post from Rudy Giuliani, who allegedly obtained them from a computer repair shop in Delaware, by an owner that was a supporter of President Donald Trump.
The owner allegedly contacted Giuliani as a safety measure and to give him the information. The owner also turned over a copy of the hard drive to the FBI last December.
One email, according to The Post, sent “to Biden on May 13, 2017, with the subject line “Expectations,” included details of ‘remuneration packages’ for six people involved in an unspecified business venture.”
From The NY Post:
In it, Hunter Biden was identified as “Chair / Vice Chair depending on agreement with CEFC,” an apparent reference to the former Shanghai-based conglomerate CEFC China Energy Co.
His pay was pegged at “850” and the email also noted that “Hunter has some office expectations he will elaborate.”
In addition, the email outlined a “provisional agreement” under which 80 percent of the “equity,” or shares in the new company, would be split equally among four people whose initials correspond to the sender and three recipients, with “H” apparently referring to Biden.
This is just part of the extensive story written by the paper but you get it. These emails, if true, appear to reveal the very interesting economic profit the Biden family had due to Joe Biden’s position.
Sure nepotism exists in all forms and manner of life and business. Many times it’s annoying for everyone involved but not criminal.
However, in the case of the former Vice President and his son, Hunter, as well as the apparent profiting of other Biden family members from nations considered a threat to U.S. national security, the implications are staggering.
If these emails are real then why isn’t the FBI doing more? Why didn’t we know? And why did these federal law enforcement officials conduct a criminal probe so that we wouldn’t have the situation we are in today?
There are only 19 days left until the election. Our nation is divided, strained and on edge. I blame the failure in our bureaucracy and the agencies – like the Justice Department and FBI – which became partisan hacks and participated in unacceptable behavior to protect the criminal actions of politicians.
