Republicans in Congress are demanding transparency from Joe Biden regarding his financial disclosures after discovering a "smokescreen" that could be concealing important details.
The demands come in light of a whistleblower's report that the FBI has a document accusing the Bidens of accepting $10 million bribes from a foreign source.
Additional reports suggest the money came from Burisma, a Ukrainian gas company, and that the owner there retained audio recordings of his discussions with Joe Biden and his son Hunter Biden.
One report even said a source explained how the Bidens "coerced" the company into making the payments.
Those details align with what the U.S. House, which is investigating the Bidens, already has documented: Millions of dollars coming into the Biden family members from foreign sources through many bank and corporate accounts.
Now a report from Breitbart explains Republicans are insisting on knowing where Biden's money came from.
Specifically, they are questioning his 2017 returns in which his "CelticCapri Corp." reported $10 million in income "without specifying revenue line items."
The questions are, then, "Who paid the entity and for what."
The bribery allegations would surprise few, as the money has been confirmed flowing to the family for some time, and they've had no service or product to deliver in return – except access to Joe Biden.
The report continued, "Before the 2020 election, USA Today published a 'fact check' article that tried to support the claims that the Bidens earned '$15.6 million … from speaking fees and book deals' from 2017 to 2019, and that 'more than $10 million of that total income was profits from Biden’s memoir 'Promise Me, Dad' and $3 million in profits from Jill Biden’s book.'
"But a closer look at Joe Biden’s 2017 tax returns raises eyebrows. 'Follow the source link provided to that $10 million number, though, and you’ll end up at Joe Biden’s campaign website with financial disclosure links to only their individual returns — no S-corporation tax returns,' the Federalist critiqued USA Today. 'So, in reality, readers were left with a smokescreen.'"
The result has been a concern on the part of those in Congress, the report said.
"Biden should disclose and every member of the press ought to hound him until he does," Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wis., said of Biden's income.
And Rep. Nancy Mace, R-S.C., told Breitbart Biden should provide unredacted bank records.
"The president seems to find selling out our country funny. We don’t," she told Breitbart. “If he’s serious about proving our allegations wrong he should release his and his family’s unredacted bank records and show the American people where all this money is coming from. The FBI can’t protect him forever."
Hunter Biden has been under investigation for several years, but no case ever has been produced. The House is not looking at Joe Biden's own money maneuvers.
