As new information continues to come out about the Biden family’s dealings overseas, calls to launch a criminal investigation into these activities are beginning to grow.
Rep. Lee Zeldin (R-NY) is leading the charge, tweeting on Saturday that “The DOJ/FBI needs to open a criminal investigation into the Biden Family’s global pay to play operation.”
The New York Post is on a roll releasing documents that detail misconduct on both Joe and Hunter Biden’s parts over the last decade.
Democrats, the mainstream media, and big tech companies are working overtime to squash the allegations, but according to a Fox News report, allegations that “outline a payout for former Vice President Joe Biden as part of a deal with a Chinese energy firm” were independently confirmed by a person that was included on the email thread.
One email, dated May 13, 2017, and obtained by Fox News, includes a discussion of ‘remuneration packages’ for six people in a business deal with a Chinese energy firm. The email appeared to identify Biden as ‘Chair / Vice Chair depending on agreement with CEFC,’ in an apparent reference to now-bankrupt CEFC China Energy Co. The email includes a note that ‘Hunter has some office expectations he will elaborate.’ A proposed equity split references ’20’ for ‘H’ and ’10 held by H for the big guy?’ with no further details. Fox News spoke to one of the people who was copied on the email, who confirmed its authenticity.
The Biden campaign has made little effort to actually deny the claims that could lead to such an investigation, preferring instead to rely on allies in the media to do the work for the Democrat presidential candidate.
However, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) announced on Saturday that Joe Biden must answer the rapidly multiplying questions about his role in Hunter Biden’s questionable overseas dealings.
McCarthy told Fox & Friends during a Saturday interview:
Well, it’s obvious that Hunter Biden made money off using his family name. What I don’t understand is why Joe Biden is not answering the question of how much he knew about this family business. Remember, six years ago, when he was vice president, he took his son, Hunter Biden, to China. What did they talk about on that plane? Ten days after that trip, the Chinese company got their license that created the fund that Hunter Biden was a part of.
So, these are questions, if you’re going to run for the leader of the free world, you need to answer. You were vice president of the United States, your son was making money off you…Ukraine, you got somebody fired going after the company that your son was on the board for, and now, there are emails saying that you should be paid by this? You cannot avoid this question and this question has to be answered before voters should be able to vote.
As of right now, there have been no formal inquiries launched into Joe Biden’s ties to Hunter’s dealings with China and Ukraine, but the pressure to do so is building as more information is released.
