A footnote to the committee’s report confirms that Biden “sent thousands of dollars” to people who were possibly involved with human trafficking, prostitution and the adult entertainment industry.
The report states: “The records note that it is a documented fact that Hunter Biden has sent funds to nonresident alien women in the United States who are citizens of Russia and Ukraine and who have subsequently wired funds they have received from Hunter Biden to individuals located in Russia and Ukraine. The records also note that some of these transactions are linked to what ‘appears to be an Eastern European prostitution or human trafficking ring’.”
It adds that the committee will continue to analyze the records it has pertaining to these acts.
Hunter is no stranger to controversy. He has openly discussed how he started dating his late brother Beau’s widow after a week-long crack binge in 2016. During that time, a former stripper at a Washington, D.C. strip club he frequented gave birth to a child that he initially claimed wasn’t his; a DNA test proved otherwise. The paternity lawsuit in the case was filed the same month that Hunter married a woman he had been dating for six days; his new wife recently gave birth to his fifth child.
The possible link to human trafficking and prostitution was only part of the story; the 87-page report details Hunter’s overseas dealings and how he profited while his father was vice president and had influence over Ukrainian policy.
The report references a $3.5 million wire transfer he received from Russia’s richest woman, Elena Baturina, the widow of Moscow’s former mayor Yury Luzhkov. According to the report, Hunter and other members of the Biden family were part of a vast financial network linking them to foreign governments and nationals across the planet. At one point, Hunter opened a bank account with a Chinese national who was linked to the country’s communist government who footed the bill for a “$100,000 global spending spree” for Joe Biden’s brother James and his wife Sara.
The report also shows that Joe Biden lied when he said he had no knowledge of his son’s involvement in questionable business activities. The Federalist Senior Editor Mollie Hemingway said that Biden "said he didn’t know about it when the report shows that in fact, some bureaucrats were so concerned about Hunter Biden’s role that they had briefed him, that they had alerted the FBI." The report shows that a senior State Department official, Amos Hochstein, told both Joe and Hunter about his concerns about Hunter’s position on the board of the Ukrainian natural gas company Burisma as his father oversaw Ukraine policy in October 2015.
Not surprisingly, Fox News reports that CNN and the network nightly news programs on NBC, CBS and ABC all completely avoided mentioning the explosive report. The print outlets that did cover the report, such as The New York Times, quite predictably downplayed the findings about the Bidens. Of course, if the story had involved one of Trumps’ children doing the same things, it would be the subject of round-the-clock coverage and calls for his resignation.
