Hunter Biden Is Now In Serious Legal Trouble

The Treasury Department will give suspicious activity reports (SARs) relating to Hunter Biden and his foreign business dealings to the House Oversight Committee.

James Comer, the chairman of the Oversight Committee, who requested the SARs in January, made the announcement Tuesday: “Ater two months of dragging their feet, the Treasury Department is finally providing us with access to the suspicious activity reports for the Biden family and their associates’ business transactions. It should never have taken us threatening to hold a hearing and conduct a transcribed interview with an official under the penalty of perjury for Treasury to finally accommodate part of our request.”

Comer also implied that the Biden administration was playing defense, noting that for over 20 years, Congress “has had access to these reports but the Biden administration changed the rules out of the blue to restrict our ability to conduct oversight.”

The announcement, and the bitterness, further confirms what was long expected – that Republicans will use their new majority power in the House to vigorously investigate Hunter Biden.

Hunter Biden: Treasury Department Explains

Treasury Department official Jonathan Davidson explained for the SAR delay. In a letter to Comer, Davidson wrote that the Treasury Department was going through the process to ensure that the “law enforcement sensitive material is identified and handled appropriately.”  

Davidson elaborated: “The Department has been working to complete all necessary review, including consultation with law enforcement agencies. These processes ensure that sensitive material extraneous to the Committee’s inquiry is not inadvertently disclosed and that law enforcement sensitive material is identified and handled appropriately.”

Davidson added that the processes of the review were standard operating procedure, were already well underway, and that the SARs would be provided as soon as possible. Of course, the Treasury Department has since provided the SARs, confirming Davidson’s assertion.

Vindictiveness and Partisanship

Personally, I don’t care about Hunter Biden or his business dealings. And I don’t much appreciate that Congress is investing so much time and energy into investigating Hunter Biden and his business dealings.

I understand the perceived political benefit to investigating Hunter Biden, and I accept that politics and legislating and overseeing are interwoven – but something like this is so nakedly political it becomes hard to support.

We already know that whatever the investigation finds, Comer and Co. will declare the entire Biden family corrupt. That’s the ultimate purpose of the investigation – to impugn President Biden – not to determine whether Biden family business dealings were suspect or whether ethics were violated or whether national security was threatened. And impugning President Biden is a waste of taxpayer’s resources.

I can also appreciate that Republicans are responding to the treatment endured under a Democratic-controlled House, which wielded its power for naked political purposes against President Donald Trump. Contemporary Republican behavior is not unusual or even out of step with their predecessors – but that doesn’t make it appropriate or productive.

Alas, the investigation will surely continue, full steam ahead. The Oversight Committee has already subpoenaed Bank of America for over a decade’s worth of financial dealings. “According to banks documents we’ve already obtained,” Comer said, “we know one company owned by a Biden associate received a $3 million wire from a Chinese energy company two months after Joe Biden left the vice presidency. Soon after, hundreds of thousands of dollars in payouts went to members of the Biden family.”


Expect the Hunter Biden investigation to linger.

    While you personally do not care about Hunter Biden and his dealings many of us are looking forward to the investigation. Maybe it will end the situation where democrats are untouchable. We know Hunter is guilty of multiple crimes and it is time he has his comeuppance. As far as the big guy, he has been selling himself to our enemies and needs to be held to account.

    What a lot of these people do not understand is we could care less about Hunter Biden what we are doing is connecting the dots to show that Joe Biden is owned by China. Which quite frankly is the only thing that can begin to explain his actions. Why Joe Biden has everyone including Chinas interests above the American people. The FBI has had information since 2019 that they tried to conceal which shows Joe Biden is compromised and they have allowed him to take over and he has caused an insane amount of Damage to our country in little over 2 years. When Biden took office gas was less than 2 dollars a gallon inflation rate was 1.4 percent all Joe Biden had to do was do what Trump did and America would continue to prosper like it did under Trumps leadership. But no biden had to fulfill all of the foreign entities that pays him that’s why we have gone steady down hill since he took office!

    So, the idea of the possible corruption and influence peddling involving the alleged President of the United States is something Kass “doesn’t care much about”. Interesting.

    Kass characterizes this entire effort as mere political revenge, which would indicate to me that he either doesn’t understand all the potential real-world ramifications of the compromising of the integrity of the US President — a clear indication of stupidity on the part of Kass — or he doesn’t care and is in fact in support of the coverup — a de facto admission of his own partisanship.

    Either way it’s not a good look.

    Really Brian, “the alleged President of the United States”? Are you trying to suggest that Joe Biden isn’t actually the President of the United States?

    As for characterizing this as political revenge, that’s because overtly IS nothing but political revenge. And Kass’s partisanship is quite obvious: he’s a partisan Republican.
