(PresidentialInsider.com)- In a recent letter to Justice Department officials, Republican Senators Ron Johnson and Chuck Grassley demanded a full investigation into Hunter Biden’s abandoned laptop, including the recent revelations that Joe Biden unwittingly financed his son’s involvement in a Russian sex trafficking ring.
According to a recent report at the Washington Examiner, between November 2018 and March 2019, Hunter spent over thirty grand on escorts, most of them linked to Russian email addresses who worked with the “exclusive model agency” UberGFE. Hunter was able to spend that much money thanks in part to Joe Biden wiring him $100,000 from December 2018 through January 2019 to help Hunter pay his bills.
In the senators’ letter, sent to Attorney General Merrick Garland, FBI Director Christopher Wray, and US Attorney for Delaware David Weiss, Johnson and Grassley asked Garland and Wray whether the FBI is investigating Hunter for possible criminal violations related to his use of escorts linked to human trafficking rings.
They also wanted to know if the FBI had “defensively briefed” the younger Biden about “counterintelligence concerns raised by his close financial associations” with individuals with links to the Chinese government or other foreign governments or his “association with foreign escorts.”
In their letter, Grassley and Johnson cited their September 2020 report which showed Hunter was paying Russian and Ukrainian women living in the US. According to their report, some of those transactions were linked to an apparent Eastern European sex trafficking ring.
They describe their 2020 findings as “potentially criminal behavior” which should be “thoroughly investigated” by federal law enforcement “to the highest ethical standards.”
The senators argue in the letter that, instead of taking the revelations in their 2020 report seriously, the American news media “quickly rushed to dispel any notion of potential wrongdoing” involving Hunter Biden. They also blasted the media for falsely characterizing their report as a Russian disinformation campaign.
They tell Garland and Wray that their “continued failure to answer fundamental questions” about Hunter Biden’s ongoing criminal case in Delaware “not only calls into question” their handling of the case, but it also “calls into question whether DOJ and FBI will take the necessary steps to pursue other relevant investigative threads.”
