With the impeachment effort against President Donald Trump now thwarted — at least temporarily — some Senate Republicans are now turning their attention to Hunter Biden.
Sens. Chuck Grassley (R-IA) and Ron Johnson (R-WI) have announced that they are going to take a much deeper look into Hunter Biden’s international travel during the time his father served as vice president, and they have even requested details of such trips from the U.S. Secret Service, according to The Hill.
Possible conflicts of interest
The media establishment has largely refused to even look at the possible corruption of Joe and Hunter Biden, and the Democratic Party has been even worse.
There is, however, little doubt among conservatives that Joe Biden used his contacts and political influence to help his son get rich.
We know for a fact that Hunter Biden traveled with his father numerous times on trips overseas, with many of these trips coinciding with significant business launches or important events in Hunter’s highly questionable dealings.
In their formal request for information relating to Hunter Biden’s travels, the senators stated: “We write to request information about whether Hunter Biden used government-sponsored travel to help conduct private business, to include his work for Rosemont Seneca and related entities in China and Ukraine.”
Access for sale
To understand just how deep this corruption could perhaps go, it is necessary to understand that were it not for Joe Biden, Hunter Biden stood very little chance of having any success in life.
First of all, Hunter has a documented history of substance abuse problems, as evidenced by the fact that even after strings were pulled to get him into the Navy via a direct commission, he was discharged from the military because he tested positive for drugs.
Hunter also received a lucrative position on the board of Ukrainian energy firm Burisma Holdings, despite having no experience in the natural gas industry or in that particular portion of the globe, and he benefitted from large infusions of Chinese investment dollars soon after visiting Asia with then-Vice President Joe Biden.
It seems obvious to many that Hunter’s apparent good fortune was due in large part to his ability to peddle access to the White House.
There is a storm coming Joe Biden’s way, and he knows it — something that has become apparent in the way he loses his temper at anyone who has the temerity to ask questions about his son’s past dealings.
Now that impeachment has fizzled, and Republican senators are ready to probe the circumstances underlying that entire farce, there is a strong possibility that the Bidens’ troubles are just beginning.
