Tom Fitton, the president of government watchdog group Judicial Watch, has just spoken out to say that there is “strong evidence of criminal misconduct” by Hunter Biden in regards to his business dealings with Ukraine.
This comes as the U.S. Treasury Department has been turning over confidential bank records related to Biden to various Senate investigative committees that are looking into his activities. These documents are known as “suspicious activity reports,” or “banking alerts involving money laundering or fraud, related to Biden and his associates,” according to The Washington Examiner.
Fitton pointed out that these Senate investigative committees have also requested that the Secret Service to turn over Biden’s travel records, adding that this could be the beginning of a major criminal investigation.
“This would be the basic investigative work one would do if you were trying to figure out where Hunter Biden was and who he was traveling with during the Obama presidency,” Fitton said.
Fitton went on to question Biden’s role in Burisma.
“There’s no evidence that it was a legitimate business relationship or that Biden had the background or capability to serve on the board,” he said, adding that “the payments were out of the ordinary and extraordinary, suggesting some other improprieties. Now we have Rudy Giuliani with documents, some of them from court cases here in the United States, suggesting that money he was receiving was, in part, laundered.”
“This Biden scandal ain’t going away,” Fitton said.
A new Politico/Morning Consult survey shows that most Americans agree with Fitton, with 52 percent of voters saying it was inappropriate for Biden to take his job with Burisma. In contrast, just 18 percent said it was appropriate for him to do so.
Fitton also called on government investigators to look into former Vice President Joe Biden’s travels to China, which is another nation his son was working in.
Because of his father’s position in the Democratic Party, Hunter Biden has gotten a free pass in terms of his nefarious activities for years. It’s time for him to be held accountable for what he did, and for these Senate investigative activities to show the world that nobody is above the law.
