Over the last many days, we’ve reported on some of the more concerning things in the 4Chan dump of data purportedly from Hunter Biden’s iPhone backup related to the Bidens’ relationships with China and Russia, and the openness with which these things were discussed among the family.
Here was one comment from Hunter Biden to Hallie Biden, his dead brother’s wife, with whom he was having a relationship.
[V]ery alone in dealing with rebuilding an income that can support the enormous alimony and my kids costs and myself, dealing with the aftermath of the abduction and likely assassination (that’s what the NYT’s suspects) of my business partner the richest man in the world and the arrest and conviction of my client the chief of intelligence of the people’s republic of China by the US government, the retaliation of the Chinese in the ouster and arrest of US suspected CIA operatives inside China, my suspected involvement in brokering a deal with Vladimir Putin directly for the largest sale of oil gas assets inside Russia to China, a tax bill that Eric left hanging over my business and…And Dads running for president.
You have him talking about his relationship with Ye Jianming and a company connected to the Chinese government, the connection to Patrick Ho — whom he calls China’s “chief of intelligence,” and his “suspected involvement” of dealing with Putin directly on behalf of China. How many alarm bells do we have to ring before this gets the attention and the real investigation that this deserves?
RedState has been reporting on this for the past three years, with a ton of stories detailing the connections. With the 4Chan dump, there’s renewed attention, but much of this information has been out there for years, including “10 percent for the big guy,” who Tony Bobulinski, a former Hunter Biden business associate, reported in October 2020 was Joe Biden. Yet, the White House continues to avoid the question and Joe Biden continues to say he had no conversations with his son about his business. This, of course, was a lie, as I reported, in June when a new voicemail emerged that busted Joe from own his mouth.

Now, it isn’t like the Republicans aren’t trying, but it’s challenging when you’re not the party in power and when the Biden team appears to be running a cover-up on the issue.
Rep. James Comer (R-KY) — the ranking member of the House Oversight Committee — explained they have a ton of Suspicious Activity Reports — 150 reports — regarding Hunter Biden and Jim Biden transactions, but now, the Biden Administration has changed the Treasury rules to make it harder for Congress to get those reports and thus, harder to uncover the problems. He said that would likely put them at the top of the list for reports. Comer previously said the Treasury Department was trying to thwart the GOP effort and had falsely represented that they’d turned over the requested documents to Congress.
Rep. Ron Johnson (R-WI) laid out some of the issues — including the question of Hunter Biden’s payments to Eastern European prostitutes who may have been allegedly part of a trafficking ring, and that Joe Biden may have funneled the money to Hunter that helped pay for some of those transactions. Johnson also laid out how Biden had canceled a DOJ initiative to investigate the Chinese theft of our intellectual property in the university system. Johnson said this was putting in danger our national security.
Johnson used the term “enormous coverup” and detailed how Congress wasn’t getting the answers from the DOJ when they asked about what was going on here in terms of any sort of investigation, that the FBI had the laptop with what Johnson said was a lot of criminal activity, and Johnson expressed concern that if there was a plea agreement with Hunter Biden, it might also involve a sealing of the records which would prevent people from finding out more or addressing all of the problems.
There are now also reports about FBI contacts on Hunter Biden’s phone — perhaps Ron Johnson might want to ask the FBI about that. Because if true, why are they on there, and what was being discussed?
This stinks to high heaven and it’s one more reason that we need to vote out the Democrats in November if we’re ever going to get some action on the matter.
