U.S. Senator Ron Johnson of Wisconsin spent years investigating the first family’s finances and now claims that banks submitted a minimum of six reports pertaining to Hunter Biden’s international business dealings. These reports highlighted the Delaware address of President Joe Biden and sparked concerns regarding potential criminal activity such as money laundering and even human trafficking.
Thursday night, as the ranking Republican on the Senate Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations, Johnson disclosed to John Soloman’s outlet Just the News that the Suspicious Activity Reports (SARS) documented transactions totaling approximately $12 million over multiple years, with a portion of those funds traversing Joe Biden’s residence in Wilmington, Del., where he had granted permission for his son to reside.
Johnson stated that Joe Biden would have undoubtedly detected his son’s use of his residence as a business and banking address, if only by observing the mail that arrived at the address. Further, he stated that there are ample reasons for House impeachment investigators to suspect Joe Biden of collusion in his son’s international dealings. Next week, the House will consider whether to formally authorize an impeachment investigation.
“There’d be so much activity coming into his address, in this case, Hunter Biden’s businesses, that he obviously would have to be aware,” Johnson claimed. “So, again, I just use the word obvious, It has been so obvious for so long, that Biden Inc. is a corrupt enterprise. And that this president is corrupt, that he is compromised.
“And he fully was aware of this, that he fully benefited from it. The members of his family benefited from all these millions of dollars flowing in from countries that are adversarial to America,” he added.
A few hours prior to the unsealing of a nine-count indictment against Hunter Biden in federal court in California by Special Counsel David Weiss, Johnson made this revelation. The indictment accuses Biden of engaging in a years-long tax evasion scheme, wherein he avoided paying $1.4 million in federal taxes on millions in foreign incomes originating from countries such as China, Ukraine, and Romania.
According to the indictment, “Rather than pay his taxes, the Defendant spent millions of dollars on an extravagant lifestyle.”
Johnson, in conjunction with OG Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa), conducted a two-year investigation into the Biden family scandal. The investigation concluded in 2020 that Joe Biden’s family amassed millions of dollars in foreign currency from adversarial nations, thereby jeopardizing the first family’s national security. Johnson is one of the most knowledgeable members of Congress regarding the matter.
Since then, revelations from House investigators, IRS whistleblowers, and subpoenaed documents have only served to heighten Johnson’s concerns, he stated on Thursday.
“They (Biden family) did nothing for it (the money) other than they had the right name. And they were influence peddling. And the people paying these millions expected favors in return, some kind of public policy coming from the former vice president and maybe even a potential president of the United States. Now they got him. Now he’s compromised.”
Johnson stated that his team has been assisting House impeachment investigators and will provide the SAR-derived information regarding Joe Biden’s residence.
“We found six of the Treasury reports on Hunter Biden, listing his suspicious activities,” Johnson said. “The money flows in those reports are over $12 million. Now, there might be double counting in there, you just don’t really know exactly what the activity is. These reports are really meant to obviously raise awareness to prompt further investigation, which of course this Department of Justice, FBI, I don’t think did an honest job of doing.”
“But it does point out we know what’s suspicious about them and there are terms like money laundering, human trafficking, those types, that that’s why these transactions raise suspicion,” he continued. “I mean, Hunter Biden has dozens and dozens and dozens of these Treasury reports that are concerned about suspicious activities he’s undertaking in terms of money transfers. I mean, this is, again, it’s just to me, it just underscores and confirms the criminal nature, the corrupt nature of Biden family, Inc.”
Inquirers from Congress claim they have not identified over 150 SARs that have been lodged involving Biden family businesses and associates for nearly a decade. While Hunter Biden has faced charges related to firearms and taxes, it is noteworthy that neither he nor his father have ever faced formal accusations in court regarding money laundering or human trafficking. However, IRS witnesses have testified before Congress that concerns about a foreign human trafficking operation prompted the tax investigation into Hunter Biden.
The Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN) states that a Suspicious Activity notification is submitted “to report known or suspected violations of law or suspicious activity observed by financial institutions subject to the regulations of the Bank Secrecy Act.”
Prior to the September 2020 presidential election, it was reported that Senate committees chaired by Grassley and Johnson had obtained SARs detailing concerns raised by FinCEN regarding a number of foreign transactions involving companies connected to Hunter Biden.
Hunter Biden’s work for the Ukrainian energy company Burisma and the millions of dollars he was paid for his board seat were detailed in the report by Grassley and Johnson. The Senators emphasized in particular how Hunter Biden’s work intersected with his father’s, then-Vice President Joe Biden’s, administration of official U.S. policy in Ukraine.
A $3.5 million wire from the widow of a Russian oligarch and Hunter Biden’s business dealings with Ye Jianming, an energy executive with ties to the Chinese Communist Party, were also detailed in the report.
The Daily Mail had previously reported that it had reviewed Suspicious Activity Reports (SARs) issued by the Treasury Department. These SARs allegedly indicate that payments from Hunter Biden’s personal and business accounts were monitored as late as December 2019 and that payments from those accounts were linked to an “Eastern European prostitution ring.”
Wells Fargo identified 25 individuals associated with the foreign prostitution operation and approximately $7 million in suspicious transactions, including checks from Hunter Biden that “could have been forged to conceal his payments to prostitutes from his business account,” as reported by the Daily Mail.
In addition, documents from IRS whistleblowers Gary Shapley and Joseph Ziegler that were made public by the House Ways and Means Committee revealed that Hunter Biden spent money on escorts and claimed tax deductions for a portion of those payments. An investigator conducted an interview with one of Hunter Biden’s accountants and an alleged escort who described an encounter with the younger Biden for these documents.
Furthermore, it was testified by the IRS whistleblowers that they informed the Justice Department about a possible Mann Act violation while investigating Hunter Biden’s tax evasion. The Mann Act prohibits the interstate transportation of females “for the purpose of prostitution, debauchery, or any sexual activity that may result in criminal liability for any individual.”
Joe Biden’s residence has been linked to Hunter Biden’s dubious transactions on multiple occasions for this reason. Hunter Biden received two wire transfers from China in 2019 totaling $250,000 and $10,000, according to records of bank wires obtained by the House Oversight Committee in September.
James Comer, R-Kentucky, chairman of oversight, stated that two wires originating from China designated the Wilmington address of Joe Biden as the recipient. These payments were transmitted during Joe Biden’s presidential campaign.
“Bank records don’t lie, but President Joe Biden does,” Comer said in a press release at the time. “In 2020, Joe Biden told Americans that his family never received money from China. We’ve already proved that to be a lie earlier this year, and now we know that two wires originating from Beijing listed Joe Biden’s Wilmington home as the beneficiary address when he was running for President of the United States.”
