The name Gal Luft could soon go from unheard of to commonly known, as his recent arrest in Cyprus kicked off a massive new development in the Hunter Biden influence-peddling scandal.
According to Breitbart, Luft claims the arrest was "political revenge," for "bringing the FBI incriminating information ahead of the 2020 election about Joe Biden’s ties to his family’s business with a Chinese energy company."
Luft is a former business partner of Hunter Biden's or at least a co-adviser of some sort. Luft reportedly served as an adviser to a Chinese energy company with Hunter Biden.
Though he was arrested on a warrant out of Interpol for suspected arms trafficking, Luft says that's simply not the case.
"My only ‘sin’ is that in March 2019, before the US presidential elections, I brought to the FBI incriminating information about the business of US President Joe Biden’s family with China, and about a corruption case at the top of the FBI," Luft said in an interview with Ynet.
Luft tweeted earlier this month: "I've been arrested in Cyprus on a politically motivated extradition request by the US. The US, claiming I'm an arms dealer. It would be funny if it weren't tragic. I've never been an arms dealer. DOJ is trying to bury me to protect Joe,Jim&Hunter Biden. Shall I name names?"

Even more interesting is that his lawyer, international criminal and civil rights lawyer Mordechai Tzivin, claims Luft has evidence at the level of which would "bury" the president's son.
"[He] knows a lot of information on Hunter. The [Congress] only recently began to investigate Hunter’s case and Gal’s testimony, if [he is allowed to testify] will bury Hunter Biden." Tzivin told the Post.
He added: "Even more so, his testimony will shift the attention toward the president himself."
In a Breitbart exclusive, it was reported that Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA), a top congressional investigator, put out a call for whistleblowers to come forward who might know the truth behind Luft's arrest, if it's something different than what the charges are.
Issa told Breitbart: "One never knows where whistleblowers, concerned individuals and the critical information they provide will be found next. But we must always be ready — especially as we uncover more and more Biden family corruption — to receive evidence that advances the cause of accountability and oversight."
In another interesting twist, the House Oversight Committee said it's familiar with the situation and will be working with the attorney involved in the case.
"Oversight Committee staff are aware of the allegations and will be in touch with the attorney soon," a committee spokesperson said.
