Senate Releases Devastating Interim Report on Investigations into Hunter Biden’s Ukraine and China Scandals
A just released report from the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs, the Senate Committee on Finance concludes that former Vice President Joe Biden remained silent while his son Hunter and other members of his family enriched themselves through business dealing with foreign companies and governments while he was in office.
Among the companies that Hunter Biden became associated with was Burisma Holdings, a corrupt Ukrainian energy company that paid the younger Biden about $1 million annually to sit on its board… and more than likely to lobby the U.S. State Department for legitimacy and for business?
Shockingly, the investigation revealed that then-Vice President Biden, and the Obama administration were aware of the conflict of interest but did nothing about it. Actually, I don’t think that is the case.
In fact, the investigation concluded that “Obama administration officials and a Democrat lobbying firm had consistent and significant contact with former Ukrainian official Andrii Telizhenko. (page 35 of the report)
According to the report, Telizhenko “the Democrats’ personification of Russian disinformation,” met with “Elisabeth Zentos, a member of Obama’s National Security Council, at least 10 times.”
The report also uncovered email evidence that Obama’s former Secretary of State, John Kerry was also aware of the conflict of interest. Kerry’s stepson, Chris Heinz was a business partner of Hunter’s in another company… Rosemont Capital.
As Vice-President Joe Biden and Secretary of State John Kerry were involved in sensitive, high-stakes deals with foreign governments, Rosemont Capital secured a series of exclusive financial deals with those same foreign governments.
Hunter Biden and Chris Heinz made millions… national security be damned.
“During the Obama administration, the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS) approved a transaction that gave control over Henniges, an American maker of anti- vibration technologies with military applications, to a Chinese government-owned aviation company and a China-based investment firm with established ties to the Chinese government. One of the companies involved in the Henniges transaction was a billion-dollar private investment fund called Bohai Harvest RST (BHR). BHR was formed in November 2013 by a merger between the Chinese-government-linked firm Bohai Capital and a company named Rosemont Seneca Partners. Rosemont Seneca was formed in 2009 by Hunter Biden, the son of then-Vice President Joe Biden, by Chris Heinz, the stepson of former Secretary of State John Kerry, and others. (page 3)
From page 87 of the report’s conclusion…
The records acquired by the Committees also show that Hunter Biden and his family were involved in a vast financial network that connected them to foreign nationals and foreign governments across the globe. Hunter Biden and Devon Archer, in particular, formed significant and consistent financial relationships with the corrupt oligarch Mykola Zlochevsky during their time working for Burisma, and their firms made millions of dollars from that association while Joe Biden was vice president and the public face of the Obama administration’s Ukraine policy. Rosemont Seneca Thornton, an investment firm co-founded by Hunter Biden, received $3.5 million in a wire transfer from Elena Baturina, who allegedly received illegal construction contracts from her husband, the then-mayor of Moscow. Moreover, Archer’s apparent receipt of money for a car from Kenges Rakishev of Kazakhstan while Vice President Biden was in Kyiv is especially concerning in light of the timing. And finally, Biden and Archer’s work with Chinese nationals connected to the Communist regime illustrate the deep financial connections that accelerated while Joe Biden was vice president and continued after he left office.
Importantly, the investigation by the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs, and the Senate Committee on Finance, was launched in August 2019 in response to the Henniges sale and before Democrats began, what now can be viewed as, their preemptive impeachment of President Trump.
