CBS News is turning on President Joe Biden and is starting to dig into the business dealings of the Biden family. They reported that more than 150 financial transactions involving either Hunter or James Biden were flagged by U.S. banks for review.
Flagged transactions can often be innocuous as CBS makes clear but these transactions are damning even if legal because they show the swamp in action. No serious company would pay Hunter Biden, especially when he was in the throes of a massive crack addiction, the kind of money he was getting unless they were buying something else.
Anyone who says otherwise is not being honest. Look, the rich and powerful get their kids lucrative no-show jobs all the time, so what, but don’t tell us Hunter earned it on his own. It is insulting. James however deserves more scrutiny because he is the brains, or the sober bag man of the operation, that much is clear. When one of Hunter’s Chinese business partners was arrested in New York he called James, not Hunter from the jail.
James then called Hunter to get lawyers to get the guy out. But Hunter’s partner didn’t call him he called James. Why? Very simple.
If you are in jail and you have one call, do you call the boss or the crack head errand boy?
CBS News has learned that +150 transactions involving either Hunter or James Biden’s global business affairs were flagged as concerning by U.S. banks for further review. @ChuckGrassley spoke exclusively @CBS_Herridge about newly public bank records. pic.twitter.com/N31x5XtbZ5— Catherine Herridge (@CBS_Herridge) April 6, 2022
Chuck Grassley is concerned with the more he learns and wants answers. He said:
“We have people with the Biden name, dealing with Chinese business people that have a relationship to the Communist Party.
“I think James Biden was very much a part of this.
“These records we got are the first records that have ever been made public on this issue. Nobody else has them.”
Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) said:
“I want somebody to ask the questions of the Biden family that were asked of the Trump family — ‘What were your deals in Russia? I want the same level of scrutiny.
“And if you believe this laptop is accurate and true, there’s a treasure trove of conflict of interest in that laptop. If you believe a special counsel is necessary to investigate the Trump family, how could you not believe that a special couple is necessary to investigate the Biden family?”
From The New York Post:
The documents also indicate that Jim Biden’s company, the Lion Hall Group, received payments directly from Hudson West III, a company jointly owned at the time by Hunter Biden’s law firm Owasco and Coldharbour Capital LLC, which Johnson and Grassley’s September 2020 report linked to Dong.
Other payments to Lion Hall were funneled through Owasco — nearly $1.4 million between August 2017 and 2018.
The money movement caught the attention of US banks, which CBS reported had flagged as suspicious more than 150 transactions involving Hunter or Jim Biden.
