Hunter Biden

Footsteps gettin’ louder, cont’d

Featured image Yesterday the House Ways and Means Committee posted a press release headed “Bombshell: Ways and Means Releases New Documents Revealing Hunter Biden Selling Access to White House, Investigators Blocked from Pursuing Evidence Related to President Biden.” The newly released documents are accessible online here. The press release includes highlights from the newly released documents. What’s it all about? New York Post columnist Miranda Devine is the go-to journalist on the »

Footsteps gettin’ louder

Featured image House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer has posted a press release in his continuing investigation of the Biden family business. In the press release Comer announced that, according to subpoenaed bank records he has obtained, in 2019 Hunter Biden received a $10,000 wire from Wang Xin and a $250,000 wire from Jonathan Li and Tan Ling. Both wires originated in Beijing and listed Joe Biden’s Wilmington home as the beneficiary »

Possession obsession

Featured image Axios has posted a barebones report that Hunter Biden has a new lawsuit. NRO has slightly more on it here. In the new lawsuit Biden accuses Rudy Giuliani and attorney Robert Costello of “hacking into, tampering with, manipulating, copying, disseminating, and generally obsessing over data that they were given that was taken or stolen from Plaintiff’s devices or storage platforms, including what Defendants claim to have obtained from Plaintiff’s alleged »

Abbe is shabby suing IRS

Featured image Abbe Lowell is the high-powered Washington attorney masterminding the defense of Hunter Biden. His theory is that the best defense is a good offense. Lowell entered the scene with an intimidating volley of criminal referrals and cease-and-desist letters this past February. He has asked federal and state prosecutors to investigate John Paul Mac Isaac and others he accused of disseminating Biden’s personal data. He also threatened former Fox News host »

Biden’s ‘Absolute Wall’ Appears To Be Crumbling Absolutely

Featured image President Joe Biden insists there was an “absolute wall” between himself and his family’s overseas business adventures. Too bad for him, that wall appears to be crumbling.  As the truth about Biden’s knowledge of and likely financial benefit from these deals emerges, the media is focused on the one charge against Hunter Biden that has nothing to do with the president: He lied on 2018 federal gun form by claiming »

Hunter Biden testifies

Featured image Hunter Biden has been deposed by counsel for John Paul Mac Isaac in the defamation lawsuit brought by Mac Isaac that includes a counterclaim by Biden. The best defense is sometimes a good offense, but I doubt that the adage applies in this case. Biden has apparently denied under oath that he left his infamous laptop with Mac Isaac or that the infamous laptop is in fact his. Miranda Devine »

Things that go Bump in the day

Featured image James Taranto observed in yesterday’s Wall Street Journal apropos of the Dem/media assault on Justice Thomas that “[o]ne reason Americans don’t trust the media is that politically biased reporters routinely adulterate the news with tendentious language and prepackaged opinions. The result is crude propaganda—lousy opinion writing and unreliable information rolled into one and deceptively packaged as straight news.” Take the case of the Washington Post and Post “national columnist” Philip »

DOJ to Jim Jordan on FBI agent subpoenas: Nein

Featured image In a Tuesday night letter to House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jim Jordan (R-OH), the Department of Justice denied permission for two subpoenaed FBI special agents to testify before Congress in the GOP investigation of potential Biden family corruption. The letter, obtained by the Washington Examiner, can be viewed below. Jordan issued subpoenas on Aug. 21 to FBI special agents Thomas Sobocinski and Ryeshia Holley of the FBI’s Baltimore Field Office, »

The Fired Ukrainian Prosecutor General Speaks

Featured image We’ve all seen the clip a thousand times. Speaking to a group of foreign policy experts at a 2018 Council on Foreign Relations event, President Joe Biden boasted that he threatened to hold back $1 billion of U.S. aid unless then-Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko fired Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin, who was investigating corruption inside energy company Burisma Holdings. Shokin’s office was also looking into the activities of Ukrainian oligarch Mykola »

Report: Aides Steer Clear of Discussing Hunter’s Legal Woes with Biden

Featured image According to a new CNN report, President Joe Biden is so triggered by the media coverage swirling around his son that aides are refusing to even broach the topic with him. The president is said to be ‘obsessed’ with and ‘irritated’ by the press reports. Well, what parent wouldn’t be? Especially when House investigators have already turned up evidence of Biden’s own complicity in his son’s overseas business dealings and »

Tristan Leavitt comments

Featured image Tristan Leavitt is president of Empower America and an attorney representing the whistleblowers in the matter of Hunter Biden. He commented on the leaked emails and resulting stories in Politico and the New York Times over the weekend in a long Twitter thread which I have embedded below. The thread is unrolled and posted for easy reading in the Thread Reader app here. Leavitt explains in his first two tweets: »

Hunter Biden’s sweetheart deal was even sweeter before news of IRS whistleblower

Featured image We were all appalled to hear in June that Hunter Biden had received a sweetheart plea deal from U.S. Attorney David Weiss. Under that agreement, Hunter would plead guilty to two misdemeanor charges of tax evasion and enter into a pretrial diversion agreement on a felony charge of possession of a firearm by a user of illegal drugs. As we know, the deal fell apart in spectacular fashion at the »

Leaks Illuminate Biden Investigation

Featured image A considerable number of emails and other documents have been leaked to Politico and the New York Times; I take it that these are the same materials, although this may not be entirely clear. And insiders have leaked off the record to both of these organizations. In their articles, the two news organizations highlight different elements of the documents. One of Politico’s most interesting revelations is that the Biden Department »

Divert this

Featured image Andrew McCarthy’s weekly NRO column elaborates on “The chicanery of the Hunter Biden plea deal.” I find that McCarthy’s columns provide analysis that is available nowhere else (and he is a natural teacher to boot). Unfortunately, however, NRO keeps his columns behind its paywall. It occurs to me that someone might want to contribute the funds necessary to liberate them. It would be a public service. McCarthy’s column this week »

Why Johnson draws Biden’s fire

Featured image Why did President Biden make a point of disseminating demagogic lies about Wisconsin Senator Ron Johnson during Biden’s visit to Milwaukee on Tuesday (see “Translate this”)? It’s the modus operandi of the team that is pulling Biden’s strings, of course, but I think an additional element is at work in this particular case. Biden is lying about Johnson because Johnson has been telling the truth about the corrupt Biden family »

Why Weiss?

Featured image Attorney General Merrick Garland announced the appointment of United States Attorney David Weiss as special counsel in the investigation of Hunter Biden yesterday. The Department of Justice has posted Garland’s statement here. Why Weiss? That is a difficult question to answer honestly in public. Indeed, Garland took no questions — ignoring a reporter who asked why Weiss had been elevated to special counsel if he had “ultimate authority” to prosecute, »

Hunter Going to Trial?

Featured image There were two developments today in the Biden Department of Justice’s faux prosecution of Hunter Biden. The DOJ filed a document suggesting that Hunter is now bound for trial, following the collapse of his plea bargain before Judge Maryellen Noreika: “After the hearing, the parties continued negotiating but reached an impasse. A trial is therefore in order,” prosecutors said in their Friday filing. *** Later Friday, prosecutors suggested they could »
