Key witness against Biden family indicted by partisan Democratic prosecutor whose wife previously worked for Obama

A would-be whistleblower who has attempted to testify to Congress about his knowledge of the Biden family's corrupt foreign dealings and influence-peddling was just indicted this week on a slew of federal charges that could send him to prison for up to 100 years.

Rather tellingly, the federal prosecutor overseeing the case has deep ties to the Democratic Party while his wife was revealed to have previously worked for former President Barack Obama's eponymous foundation, the Daily Caller reported.

Meanwhile, the prosecutorial effort against the indicted man looks glaringly political and, rather ironically, at least some of the charges pressed against him could -- and likely should -- be easily and more convincingly applied to the current president's son, Hunter Biden.

Partisan Democrats

According to the Daily Caller, the federally indicted would-be whistleblower is Dr. Gal Luft, an Israeli-American dual citizen who runs a military-focused think tank in Maryland and who, since at least 2019, has attempted to share with federal authorities and now Congress what he knows about the Biden family's corruption.

Prosecuting Luft is U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York Damian Williams, who previously clerked for Attorney General Merrick Garland when he was a federal judge and also worked for several prominent Democratic politicians and the Democratic National Committee.

Williams is married to Jennifer Wynn, who runs a consultancy firm and previously worked for more than three years, from 2017 through 2020, in various positions with the Obama Foundation, according to her LinkedIn page.

Indictment unsealed against Luft

On Monday, U.S. Attorney Williams announced that Luft had been indicted on eight federal charges that included alleged violations of the Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA), the Arms Export Control Act, sanctions against Iran, and making false statements to federal investigators -- which, if convicted and sentenced to the maximum on all counts, could land him in federal prison for up to 100 years.

Luft, who was initially indicted in November 2022 and then arrested in Cyprus in February -- he has since fled and become a fugitive -- is alleged to have worked secretly to advance the interests of China, conspired to broker illicit international arms deals between China and various other nations, and conspired to broker deals for sanctioned Iranian oil, as well as to have lied on multiple occasions about those alleged crimes to the FBI.

The timing of the indictment is key, though, as Luft, who disputes all of the criminal allegations, was reportedly preparing to make arrangements to share what he knows of the Biden family with Congress, per the Daily Caller, and in fact, has claimed that the arrest in Cyprus in February was a blatant effort to block his imminently scheduled testimony before the House Oversight Committee at that time.

That assertion and so much more was divulged in a 14-minute video he shared exclusively with the New York Post last week from an undisclosed location in which he summarized his efforts since 2019 to share what he knows about President Joe Biden, Hunter Biden, and the Biden family business dealings.

"I, who volunteered to inform the U.S. government about a potential security breach and about compromising information about a man vying to be the next president, am now being hunted by the very same people who I informed -- and may have to live on the run for the rest of my life," Luft said in the video.

Comer highlights links between Hunter Biden, Luft, and Chinese company

To say that House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer (R-KY) is greatly displeased by this development with Luft, who he views as a key witness in the ongoing investigation of the Biden family, would be a substantial understatement.

"It is alarming and dishonest that Committee Democrats and certain media outlets have willfully ignored that the federal charges against Luft are directly related to CEFC. Indeed, neither Democrats nor the New York Times include any reference to CEFC in their recent criticisms of the Committee’s interest in speaking with Luft," Comer wrote in a Wednesday letter to FBI Director Chris Wray. "In fact, the New York Times references ‘Chinese companies' -- omitting CEFC’s role in the scheme -- and acknowledges that Luft was charged with 'acting as an unregistered agent for China.'"

"This is the same Chinese company that paid the Biden family and their business associates significant amounts of money, as disclosed in detail in bank records memoranda released by the Committee," the chairman stressed. "Additionally, the Bidens formed a partnership with CEFC, and an email indicates Joe Biden and Hunter Biden intended to share office space with CEFC in the United States. Any criticism of Luft reflects the type of people who partnered with CEFC and accepted money from the corrupt Chinese company -- this includes the Biden family. It would be negligent for the Committee not to attempt to speak with a cooperator directly involved with CEFC."
