Grassley: “HUNTER and James Biden Essentially Served as Agents of the Communist Government”

Our Report was well founded, ahead of the curve and right on the money in more ways than one. Our report tee’d up the facts, but the mainstream press never stepped up to the plate.  Some of the nation’s supposedly leading press outlets, with teams of investigative reporters were scoped by the Congress, “The  Johnson-Grasley Report”. Now, of course, they are scrambling to chase the story that they for so long ignored. Now, it didn’t have to be this way.  We already did much of the hefty lifting before issuing our report.  The report made public information that had never been known before. For Example it showed the following:

  • HUNTER BIDEN, associates & family members were connected to Chinese Nationals and Chinese companies linked with the Communist Party and The People’s Liberation Army. This includes the CEFC China Company Limited and also company subsidiaries.

  • A company linked to the communist regime sent Hunter Biden law firm millions of dollars

  • Hunter Biden opened a line of credit with a Chinese national linked to the communist regime and funded it with approximately $100,000 and then Hunter, James, Sara Biden went on an extravagant global spending spree.

  • Hunter Biden via his law firm also sent a Million Dollars to James Biden’s Consulting Firm the Lion Hall Group.

  • These Transfers began less than one week after CEFC sent $5,000,000.00 to Hudson West III, a company linked to CEFC and Chinese nationalists associated with the communist regime which then sent money to Hunter Biden’s law firm.

  • When the bank contacted Sara Biden who is associated with the Firm’s bank account, she refused to answer their questions AND PROVIDE ANY ADDITIONAL DOCUMENTATION. ACCORDING TO THE RECORDS WE HAVE ON FILE, The bank submitted the account for closure.

  • Senator Johnson and I recently issued a supplemental report that showed Hunter Biden’s close business associate, Rob Walker, received $6,000,000.00 from a Chinese company linked to the communist regime.

  • State Department officials believed that Hunter Biden’s Burisma board membership created a perception of a conflict of interest and “was very awkward for U.S. officials pushing an anti-corruption agenda in Ukraine” from a State Department official.

  • Secretary of State Kerry publicly denied knowing Hunter Biden’s role on the Burisma board.  We acquired evidence that Kerry did in fact know about that role.

  • On December 2015, instead of following US objective on confronting oligarchs, VP Biden staff advised him to avoid commenting on Burisma’s oligarchs and instead said: “I am not going to get into naming names OR ACCUSING INDIVIDUALS”

  • JOE BIDEN WAS RUNNING AN ANTI-CORRUPTION AGENDA IN UKRAINE but he pulled his punches when his son was on the board of Burisma.  Based on witness testimony, Burisma’s owner allegedly paid a $7,000,000.00 Bribe to officials serving under Ukraine’s prosecutor general to shut the case against him. When he allegedly paid that bribe, Hunter Biden was on the Burisma Board.

  • These examples are just a sampling from the report that Senator Johnson and I put out and just the tip of an iceberg with respect to the Biden family’s troubled ties to governments adverse to U.S. interest.  These associations and the millions of dollars that passed between and among Hunter Biden, James Biden and others, create criminal financial and counter-intelligence and extortion concerns.  That’s why I’ve written to the Justice Department about the risks that Hunter and James Biden essentially served as agents of the communist government for purposes of their registering under the Foreign Agents Registration Act.  After Hunter Biden publicly confirmed he was under criminal investigation, liberal NEWS Outlets reported on concerns that his financial associations could create criminal financial and counter-intelligence problems.  Something you heard from the Johnson-Grassley Report several weeks ago.  That’s why we said in September 2020 that we were wrongly criticized for it.

  • Just over the weekend a new emails was made public that reportedly says that Joe Biden and his brother were “office mates” with the very same Chinese nationals that we wrote about in our report.  Those same individuals were the ones with links to the communist regime and that regime’s military.

  • Based on all the facts known to date, Joe Biden has a lot of explaining to do.  I have run many oversight OPERATIONS AND investigations DURING the course of my career.  I AM INTERESTED IN FACTS in EVIDENCE AND IN THE TRUTH.

  • I learned a lesson a long time ago when I first started my oversight focus: that is, no matter how difficult the media or the other side of the isle makes it to find the facts, never get up, never give up, keep working hard. The American taxpayers deserve nothing less.  That’s the attitude and approach that I’ve had my entire career and that’s what I will take with me as I continue to look into the Biden Family matters and as I move to a leadership position on the Senate Judiciary Committee.  I yield the floor.
