Democrats and their supporters in the media will face significant challenges in responding to the compelling evidence emerging from congressional committees investigating alleged corruption involving President Joe Biden.
The House Ways and Means Committee recently disclosed fresh documents provided by IRS whistleblower Gary Shapley, potentially creating further difficulties for the Bidens. These revelations may also cast a shadow on Hunter Biden’s associate, Kevin Morris, often referred to as his “sugar brother,” who covered the First Son’s $2.8 million tax liability and supported his lavish lifestyle in Malibu.
As outlined in the New York Post, here are the top five revelations found within the committee’s 1,600-word report and the 31 new exhibits submitted by IRS criminal investigators Shapley and Joseph Ziegler. They also allege that the Department of Justice obstructed their five-year inquiry into Hunter Biden in Delaware:
–Uncle Jim Biden told the FBI and IRS in an interview last September that he and his nephew Hunter tried to help Chinese firm CEFC buy a US liquid natural gas facility in Louisiana — and that they did so in the knowledge that the company was directly linked to Chinese President Xi Jinping. Hunter told his uncle that CEFC chairman Ye Jianming “was a protégé of President Xi,” the FBI report says. But investigators were instructed not to ask Jim Biden if his brother, then-former Vice President Joe Biden, was involved in the ultimately unsuccessful CEFC deal or to follow “normal investigative leads,” says the committee.
–IRS public affairs officer Justin Cole emailed the chief and deputy chief of IRS criminal investigations a report of conversations between a CNN producer and Hunter Biden, in which Hunter said that he was “not willing to accept” a plea deal and that he “expected all of this ‘stuff’ would go away when his dad becomes president.”
–In another revelation, the House Committee said the FBI was investigating Morris for campaign finance violations: “These violations pertain to a wealthy Hollywood lawyer, Kevin Morris, who was enlisted to help the family, and who paid millions of dollars to help Hunter around the time that Joe Biden becomes president.” Leslie Wolf, Assistant United States Attorney for the District of Delaware, told investigators that she was not “personally interested” in the Morris investigation and that “she did not want any of the agents to look into the allegation.”
–Wolf refused multiple requests by Pittsburgh US Attorney Scott Brady to brief Delaware investigators about an FBI FD-1023 report alleging that Joe Biden was paid a $5 million bribe by an executive of Ukrainian energy firm Burisma, as was his son Hunter. The allegation came from a trusted FBI confidential human source during a June 2020 interview. But Wolf “had already concluded no information from that office could be credible, stating her belief that it all came from Rudy Giuliani,” Shapley said, even though the FBI report had nothing to do with Giuliani. On October 22, 2020, the Justice Department ordered the Delaware US Attorney’s office to take the Pittsburg briefing, but Shapley said his investigators never saw the FD-1023, nor were told what it contained, despite the fact it was directly relevant to their case.
–Wolf instructed investigators seeking a search warrant of a Biden property to “erase” any mention of “Political Figure 1” — who was Joe Biden.

These latest troubling disclosures come on the heels of the House Oversight Committee’s announcement on Tuesday, revealing two additional $260,000 wire transfers to Hunter Biden originating from Chinese individuals.
The beneficiary address on these wire transfers was Joe Biden’s residence at his grand estate in Wilmington, Delaware. These transactions occurred in July and August of 2019, right in the midst of Joe Biden’s presidential campaign.
Chairman of the Committee, James Comey, a Republican from Kentucky, commented on the matter, stating, “In 2020, Joe Biden assured the American people that his family had never received funds from China. However, bank records provide a different narrative, and it appears that President Joe Biden’s statements may not be accurate.”
