The Republican-controlled House Ways and Means Committee has made public a document that includes a response from an IRS agent to an inquiry from a CNN producer. The producer claimed to possess an email in which Hunter Biden allegedly stated that all of his “items” would vanish if his father were to become president. It’s important to note that this purported correspondence has not been publicly disclosed.
“Documents show Hunter Biden and his business associates had access to the White House and Joe Biden’s advisors; Biden business associates were instructed to not ‘mention Joe being involved’; and official trips to Ukraine line up U.S. government actions and Hunter Biden’s financial bottom line,” the Wednesday press release states.
Furthermore, as the IRS initiated an investigation into these alleged offenses, it seems that Hunter Biden anticipated that all these issues would be resolved once his father assumed the presidency, as reported by Just The News.
One of the documents contains an email from IRS public affairs officer Justin Cole to two IRS officials involved in the criminal investigation of Hunter Biden. In this email, Cole mentions that a CNN producer possesses an email from Hunter Biden, in which the president’s son indicated his unwillingness to accept a plea deal. Hunter Biden also expressed the belief that all these matters would be resolved when his father assumed the presidency.
The exact date of this email from Hunter Biden is not disclosed.
The committee also obtained a message from Hunter Biden’s Apple iCloud backup, dated June 6, 2017. In this message, he discusses his family’s “brand” with his uncle, Jim Biden.
“Bullsh-t James – all around bullsh-t,” Hunter Biden wrote. “Explain to me one thing Tony brings to MY table that I so desperately need that I’m willing to sign over my family’s brand and pretty much the rest of my business life? Read the f-cking documents people It’s plane f-cking English. Why in gods name would I give this marginal bully the keys my family’s only asset? Why?”
Members of the House Oversight Committee have stated their intention to present all the evidence they have gathered so far in their investigation into the business activities of the Biden family. They will be assessing the significance of the inquiry, which is scheduled for the day following the release of the newly disclosed documents.
“The House Oversight and Accountability Committee has uncovered a mountain of evidence revealing how Joe Biden abused his public office for his family’s financial gain,” House Oversight Committee Chairman Rep. James Comer, R-Ky., said in his opening statement.
“For years, President Biden has lied to the American people about his knowledge of and participation in his family’s corrupt business schemes,” Comer added.
House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jim Jordan has disclosed a schedule for the testimony of David Weiss, the U.S. attorney who has been appointed as a special counsel and recently indicted Hunter Biden on a gun-related charge. Jordan revealed during a Fox News interview that Weiss is set to testify before the House on October 18.
“David Weiss has committed to come in front of the committee on Oct. 18, so we can look forward to that,” Jordan said, as reported by Newsmax.
Jordan also provided what he claimed to be evidence connecting President Joe Biden to his son. Hunter Biden’s attorney, George Mesires, has stated that Hunter served on the board of the Ukrainian energy company Burisma Holdings from 2014 to 2019.
“You can boil this” question of Joe Biden’s alleged corruption “down to the Burisma situation,” Jordan noted further.
“Burisma, I think, captures it all. Hunter Biden gets put on the board; gets paid a lot of money. Fact No. 2: He wasn’t qualified to be on the board. Fact No. 3: The Burisma executives asked him, ‘Can you help us with the pressure we are facing?’ Fact No. 4: Joe Biden gets [Ukrainian prosecutor Viktor Shokin] fired — leverages American tax dollars to accomplish that,” he continued.
“And then what does the [Attorney General Merrick] Garland Justice Department do?” Jordan asked. “They try to sweep it under the rug, so much so that they allowed the statute of limitations to lapse for the most serious … felony tax concerns Hunter Biden had in 2014 and 2015. They let it lapse because those were the years that dealt with the Burisma income,” he noted further.
As the committee led by the Ohio Republican prepares for Weiss’s testimony, House Oversight Committee Chair James Comer (R-Ky.) revealed that the first impeachment inquiry hearing related to President Biden is scheduled for September 28.
These developments have occurred as the White House has called on its allies in the media to increase their scrutiny of House Republicans for initiating an impeachment inquiry that the White House claims is based on false information.
Following his vice presidency, Biden notably admitted to what seemed to be a “quid pro quo” during an event hosted by the Council on Foreign Relations. In this admission, Biden mentioned that he traveled to Kyiv on the orders of then-President Barack Obama and insisted that a prosecutor be removed or else he would withhold $1 billion in assistance.
