Hunter Biden Probe is Heating Up

Prosecutors are investigating acquaintances and eyewitnesses about the first son’s international business connections.

This is part of the Hunter Biden tax investigation, which is moving forward.

According to a story in the WSJ on Monday, investigators from the United States Attorney’s Office in Delaware are looking into monies the first son got from the Ukrainian natural gas business Burisma.

They’re also looking into how he handled the money to settle obligations.

Furthermore, according to a source who spoke to the Journal, one individual was interrogated in depth before a grand jury in February about Biden’s alcohol and drug usage, spending habits, and overall psychological well-being.

More on the Story

According to a former federal tax prosecutor, the move does not necessarily imply an indictment is forthcoming.

However, it does indicate the government is seeking to lock in evidence with an eye toward a possible trial in the future. Mueller is not currently involved in the investigation.

A number of acquaintances and eyewitnesses before the grand jury have been subjected to a variety of different lines of questioning, according to sources who spoke to the Wall Street Journal.

Tax and other regulations, including those operating as a consultant for a foreign power, are being investigated by prosecutors in connection with Biden’s business operations in Ukraine, China, and Kazakhstan, according to the Associated Press.

Prosecutors have concentrated their attention on payments Biden received from Burisma, which were funneled via a business named Rosemont Seneca Bohai before being delivered to Biden himself.

Biden was on the board of directors of Burisma from 2014 until 2019, receiving around $50,000 per month.

Trump on Hunter Biden

President Trump made frequent mention of this beneficial arrangement.

His first impeachment attempt was centered on a campaign to convince Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to announce an inquiry into Hunter and Joe Biden for Hunter’s business operations.

As a means of pressuring Zelensky into action, Trump withheld roughly $400 million in legislatively authorized military funding.

According to the Journal, authorities are also looking into how Hunter Biden was able to acquire an automobile using monies from Rosemont Seneca. Rosemont Seneca received a wire transfer of $142,300 from a business contact in Kazakhstan in April 2014.

The money originated through a Singapore-based business run by Kazakhstan financier Kenges Rakishev and was intended for a car purchase, according to the Journal.

Rakishev has tight ties with Kazakhstan’s political authorities. Several sources told the Journal that a day after the funds were received by Rosemont Seneca, they were routed to a New Jersey auto dealership.

From this point, they were used to buy a Fisker sports vehicle for Hunter Biden to be used under the guise of Rosemont Seneca.

Afterwards, Hunter Biden swapped in his Fisker for a grey Porsche 911. The Journal was unable to ascertain how near the inquiry was to being completed at this time.
