If recent rumors are true, Hunter Biden could be facing some serious legal problems.
According to a report from Breitbart, a private investigator stated in Arkansas court filings that Hunter Biden is now the subject of a criminal investigation for money laundering in relation to his activities at Ukranian energy firm Burisma Holdings.
Unexpected turn of events
As part of her paternity case against Hunter Biden, Lunden Roberts, the mother of Biden’s recently discovered illegitimate child, hired a private investigator to look into Hunter Biden’s finances.
The New York Post reported that Lunden’s investigator found out that Biden is actually the subject of several criminal investigations.
According to the Post’s report, at least one of those probes is related to his business dealings with Ukrainian energy company Burisma Holdings. It’s unclear which agencies are conducting the investigations.
For his part, Biden is trying to fight the request for his full financials to be revealed in court, saying he thinks it will be used a weapon against his father in the presidential election.
The alleged crime
The court filing alleged that Hunter Biden was involved in a money laundering scheme and opened up numerous financial accounts with Morgan Stanley for the sole purpose of facilitating those activities.
It is also claimed that while Hunter was on the board of Burisma, almost $6.8 million was funneled through these accounts.
Going back to Biden’s beginnings with Burisma, he was placed on the board of the company in the same month the firm’s founder had his assets frozen for alleged money laundering. Conveniently, Hunter Biden — a man whose father happened to be the vice president of the United States at the time — was seen as a valuable asset, despite having no experience in the sector or in Ukraine.
Democrats continue to say this all amounts to partisan attacks designed to sink Joe Biden’s candidacy in 2020, but how much longer are they going to be able to hold on to that argument?
If the investigator’s reports are true, and Biden is under investigation, what happens if it is found that Hunter Biden was indeed guilty of money laundering or other serious crimes?
There are no words to describe the mess Democrats are going to have on their hands if all this plays out the way we hope and think it will.
