Senate Report on Hunter Biden

Source: Scribd.

Here’s the Senate report on Hunter Biden I mentioned in a post here a couple of days ago.

Glancing through it, the chief finding appears to be that “the Obama administration knew that Hunter Biden’s position on Burisma’s board was problematic and did interfere in the efficient execution of policy with respect to Ukraine.” The details tell a story of Hunter, his associates, and members of the Biden family cashing in on Joe Biden’s political influence.

Most damning is Section XI of the report, which states, “The Treasury records acquired by the Chairmen show potential criminal activity relating to transactions among and between Hunter Biden, his family, and his associates with Ukrainian, Russian, Kazakh and Chinese nationals…The transactions discussed below are designed to illustrate the depth and extent of some questionable financial transactions. Moreover, the financial transactions illustrate serious counterintelligence and extortion concerns relating to Hunter Biden and his family.”

I expect many narratives to emerge from this publication will be ironic in the extreme. Just for starters, those who several months ago argued strongly for the sanctity of Congressional oversight will no doubt argue against it in this instance.

  1. I am sure more info is coming out soon.

    Couple of things:

    The Conclusions are packed with “appears”, “could haves”, “allegedly”, “possible concerns”..etc., etc.

    Even though the committee voted unanimously to release the transcripts along with the report, they have not been seen yet. The Democrats on the committee have voiced strong disapproval of that move.

    Gee, I wonder why the committee overlooked the regimes massive China deals as president that favored his daughter, his sons and, surprise, surprise, the Trump organization.

    Oh that’s right, this was a feeble effort to put out a last minute hit like the email fiasco.

    Just the tip of the iceberg refresher of what our president is doing with our foreign policy decisions and his companies.

    “On the same day Trump and his daughter dined with Chinese President Xi Jinping at Mar-a-Lago in Florida in April 2017, China awarded her three preliminary trademark approvals for jewelry, handbags and spa services. In all, she has obtained more than a dozen Chinese trademarks since entering the White House, ensuring her access to the world’s second-largest economy if she goes back into business.”

    “In 2017, the Trumps marketed another project in India — this one in Mumbai — with a picture of President Trump, calling it “an opportunity worth its weight in gold” to be associated with “celebrity & POTUS Donald Trump’s Trump Organisation…”

    “The Chinese government is extending a $500 million loan to a state-owned construction company to build an Indonesian theme park that will feature a Trump-branded golf course and hotels.”

    “Within three days of the Chinese government agreeing to provide $500 million in loans to an Indonesian theme park that the Trump Organization has a deal to license President Donald Trump’s name to, the president stunningly ordered sanctions be rescinded against a major Chinese telecom company.”

    1. RE: “Gee, I wonder why the committee overlooked the regimes massive China deals as president that favored his daughter, his sons and, surprise, surprise, the Trump organization.”

      Why would a committee investigating Hunter Biden investigate any of Trump’s children? Other committees are free to do so and, in fact, the impeachment hearings would have provided an ideal forum. Perhaps you should try to figure out why the issues you raise with Trump’s family haven’t attracted the attention of Democrats.

      Here’s a possibility: Powerful Democrats who have enriched themselves at the expense of U.S. foreign policy interests don’t want the scrutiny such investigations would bring to their own activities.

      1. It was a rhetorical question.

        So far the Biden report is pretty empty except for the “it looked bad”, which both Biden’s have already admitted since the board appointment.

        I guess ZTE and the Indonesian resort could have had Democratic investors. Or a few of the impossible to get patents for Ivanka my have been signed over to them.

    2. “The Conclusions are packed with “appears”, “could haves”, “allegedly”, “possible concerns”..etc., etc.”

      Funny how these things are a big deal in this report, but in the intel reports on Russian interference in our democratic process they are pushed aside as nothingburgers.

      H-Y-P- 🎵 sing along, you know the rest.

  2. You seem to really be enjoying your partisan nothing burger without a shred of anything new. No special sauce. No nothing.

    I do not suppose you will acknowledge that this is a couple of orders of magnitude less than what you were hoping for when you gleefully anticipated the result of this inquiry?

    Of course, the whole exercise is a disgrace – yet another abuse of government powers – as you would readily concede had a similar effort been directed at the family of Donald Trump by a Democratically controlled House committee.

    In that regard, there are MANY far more serious questions about THEIR behavior than anything that Hunter Biden even could have done. Leaving aside the monumental financial questions, extortion of foreigners, accepting of favors, etc. I personally would like to know exactly the role of Jared Kushner in providing MBS with the names of Saudi dissidents and the role he played in the murder of Jamal Khashoggi. Someone ought to look into that, don’t you think?

      Why would I acknowledge overheated fantasies that exist only in someone eles’s imagination?

    1. In other words, Johnson, Grassley and their den of scoundrels had nothing, but more than happily released it..

      Loosely quoted, Johnson stated for the record:

      “Yowza, yowza, yowza we got us some dirt, maybe dust, OK a small smudge, of Russian disinformation on Vice President Biden that we think will fire up the base, particularly those who already hate Democrats and we will release it just before the election so we can pull a Comey on him like was done to Secretary Clinton and that will help Trump. And maybe, just maybe he won’t call me names.”

      Citation: page 56 of the minority report of the Vice President Biden Witch Hunt.
