There are a plethora of sins that we’ve come to associate with American politics, many of which seem to glance across our gaze without fazing us these days. Bribery, extortion, muckraking, and NDA’s to name a few.
But there are still a few offenses that we have a hard time letting pass without protest, nepotism being chief among them.
That’s why, despite Joe Biden’s considerable power as President, the federal government’s investigation into son Hunter’s business dealings continues to evolve and strengthen.
A Justice Department investigation into Hunter Biden’s business activities has gained steam in recent months, with a flurry of witnesses providing testimony to federal investigators and more expected to provide interviews in the coming weeks, according to multiple sources familiar with the matter.
The probe, led by the US Attorney in Wilmington, Delaware, began as early as 2018 and concerns multiple financial and business activities in foreign countries dating to when Biden’s father was vice president. Investigators have examined whether Hunter Biden and some of his associates violated money laundering, tax and foreign lobbying laws, as well as firearm and other regulations, multiple sources said.
And they’re talking to just about everybody.
To do so, law enforcement has gathered information from lobbyists connected to Hunter Biden, from his business partners, and from others who’ve observed his financial engagements, including a woman with whom he had a child.
The Hunter Biden saga has been ongoing for some time, and was exacerbated by the discovery of an abandoned laptop purportedly belonging to the President’s son, left at a repair shop, filled with what appeared to be rather incriminating data.
