Sens. Ron Johnson (R-WI) and Chuck Grassley (R-IA) have released the findings of their long-awaited probe into Hunter Biden.
The report, entitled “Hunter Biden, Burisma and Corruption,” details Hunter’s tenure at a Ukrainian energy company while his father served as the Obama administration’s point person on Ukraine policy.
The investigation began after Grassley expressed concerns about the selling of a U.S. company to a Chinese firm with ties to Hunter.
The Daily Wire’s Ryan Saavedra breaks down the most troubling allegations in the report:
In early 2015 the former Acting Deputy Chief of Mission at the U.S. Embassy in Kyiv, Ukraine, George Kent, raised concerns to officials in Vice President Joe Biden’s office about the perception of a conflict of interest with respect to Hunter Biden’s role on Burisma’s board. Kent’s concerns went unaddressed, and in September 2016, he emphasized in an email to his colleagues, “Furthermore, the presence of Hunter Biden on the Burisma board was very awkward for all U.S. officials pushing an anticorruption agenda in Ukraine.”
- Although Kent believed that Hunter Biden’s role on Burisma’s board was awkward for all U.S. officials pushing an anti-corruption agenda in Ukraine, the Committees are only aware of two individuals — Kent and former U.S. Special Envoy and Coordinator for International Energy Affairs Amos Hochstein — who raised concerns to Vice President Joe Biden (Hochstein) or his staff (Kent).
- Hunter Biden received a $3.5 million wire transfer from Elena Baturina, the wife of the former mayor of Moscow.
The findings also reopen scrutiny into Hunter’s financial ties to foreign nationals outside of Russia.
Hunter Biden had business associations with Ye Jianming, Gongwen Dong, and other Chinese nationals linked to the Communist government and the People’s Liberation Army. Those associations resulted in millions of dollars in cash flow.
OUT TODAY: Report with @chuckgrassley found millions of dollars in questionable financial transactions between Hunter Biden & his associates and foreign individuals, including the wife of the former mayor of Moscow. https://t.co/R1MxQ4xGKP
