During the 2020 election, detrimental reports about Hunter Biden’s potentially criminal foreign business dealings were suppressed on social media and dismissed or ignored by most of the mainstream media in an obvious effort to help then-candidate Joe Biden win the presidency.
Now, more than a year later, The New York Times is belatedly confirming much of what it initially downplayed about President Biden’s son, particularly concerning an ongoing federal investigation into Hunter’s tax liabilities and business deals with foreigners, the Conservative Brief reported.
The gist of the Times report was that while Biden had reportedly paid off a significant tax debt and potentially reduced his criminal exposure in that regard, he nonetheless remained under investigation for other alleged crimes like money laundering as well as violations of federal registration requirements for foreign lobbyists.
According to that report from The New York Times, Biden took out a loan to cover upwards of $1 million that he owed to the IRS, and though he could still potentially face criminal charges for his “tax-related offenses,” the fact that he had paid his debt made charges or substantial penalties less likely.
However, those tax issues aside, federal prosecutors and a federal grand jury in Delaware have continued to probe evidence of alleged money laundering by Biden on behalf of foreign entities — including Ukrainian energy firm Burisma — with which Biden had business dealings with … something that has also given rise to allegations that he failed to properly register as a foreign lobbyist.
Incredibly, the Times article seemingly confirmed numerous allegations and prior reports about Hunter Biden over the past several years — including at the heart of former President Donald Trump’s first impeachment — that the Times itself and other major mainstream media outlets had ignored or actively sought to counter or suppress.
Attorney believes Hunter will eventually be indicted
On the heels of that report from The New York Times came a report from CNBC that the Arkansas woman with whom Hunter Biden fathered a child had testified before the federal grand jury in Delaware about her knowledge of Biden’s financial situation and tax records, which became known to her and her attorney by way of a paternity lawsuit in 2019.
The attorney for the woman, Clint Lancaster, told CNBC he had turned over to federal investigators “a significant amount of Hunter’s financial records” and that due to “problematic” information contained therein about his foreign business dealings, “I expect him to be indicted.”
The lawyer said, “Just based on what I saw in his financial records, I would be surprised if he’s not indicted.”
Lancaster was careful to not delve into any specifics of what he had seen but did confirm that Biden’s “Burisma pay records” and other records involving that Ukrainian energy firm were included in the documents.
Psaki dodges questions about Hunter
White House press secretary Jen Psaki was asked during Thursday’s press briefing about the damning new reports about Hunter Biden but she twice refused to provide an answer. First, asked directly about the Times article, Psaki replied, “I’d point you to the Department of Justice and also to Hunter Biden’s representatives. He doesn’t work in the government.”
A moment later, asked about her prior dismissals of negative stories about the president’s son, she said, “Again, I’d point to the Department of Justice and Hunter Biden’s representatives. I’m a spokesperson for the United States; he doesn’t work for the United States.”
