Grassley: Whistleblower Documents May Link Joe Biden to Hunter’s Foreign Business Dealings

Republican Sen. Chuck Grassley did not mince words in his latest missive to top U.S. law enforcement officials. In an October 13 letter, he stated that the FBI may possess “significant, impactful, and voluminous  evidence” of “potential criminal conduct by Hunter Biden and James Biden,” President Joe Biden’s brother.  Moreover, he believes the President “may have been involved.”

The Washington Examiner obtained a copy of the letter, which can be viewed below, on Monday. It was sent to Attorney General Merrick Garland, FBI Director Christopher Wray, and Delaware U.S. Attorney David Weiss, who is leading the criminal investigation into Hunter Biden.

The senator from Iowa bases his claims on credible whistleblower disclosures made to his office. The evidence includes a summary of an Oct. 23, 2020, FBI interview with Tony Bobulinski, Hunter Biden’s former business partner.

According to Grassley, Bobulinski allegedly told agents that Hunter Biden and James Biden were working with CCP-tied foreign nationals on “potential business deals and investments while Joe Biden was Vice President; however, that work remained intentionally uncompensated while Joe Biden was Vice President.

It continues, “After Joe Biden left the Vice Presidency, the summary makes clear that Hunter Biden and James Biden worked with CEFC [Chinese energy company tied to the CCP] and affiliated individuals to compensate them for that past work and the benefits they procured for CEFC. According to the summary, Hunter Biden, James Biden and their business associates created a joint venture that would serve as a vehicle to accomplish that financial compensation, and that arrangement was made sometime after a meeting in Miami  between Hunter Biden and CEFC officials in February 2017. According to the summary, that vehicle was called SinoHawk. … [A]ccording to the summary, 10 percent of Hunter Biden’s interest was to be held for Joe Biden. Attached to this letter is the Oneida Operating Agreement which lists Hunter Biden, James Biden and their business associates and the percentage of interest for each individual.”

This compensation, Grassley claims, came in the form of “an unsecured $5 million loan, intended to be forgivable, from CEFC in 2017.”

He cites a separate document which alleged that “Hunter Biden yelled at CEFC officials at a meeting for failing to fund the joint venture.”  Further, it said that when the payment still had not been made in July 2017, “James Biden considered calling CEFC officials and threatening to withdraw Biden family support from future deals.” Fancy that.

Grassley notes that a “$5 million wire from a company connected to CEFC” was made in August 2017, which “could have been the money originally intended for SinoHawk.”

However, the funds were “not transmitted to the SinoHawk joint venture.” Instead, they were transferred to “Hudson West III which could partially explain SinoHawk’s eventual failure. … As noted in our report and our floor speeches, the money from the wire was transferred from Hudson West III to Hunter Biden’s firm, Owasco, and James Biden’s firm, Lion Hall Group, apparently circumventing SinoHawk.”

The senator said this transaction “formed a sufficient basis to open a full field investigation on pay-to-play grounds; however, it is unclear whether the FBI did so and whether the information is part of the ongoing criminal investigation by U.S. Attorney Weiss.”

The FBI has documents showing that Biden met with his son and Bobulinski “at a conference in Los Angeles on May 2, 2017, and May 3, 2017.”

Finally, Grassley references “a series of documents relating to information on Mykola Zlochevsky, the owner of Burisma, and his business and financial associations with Hunter Biden.” Hunter and his business partner Devin Archer were famously offered lucrative positions on the Ukrainian energy company’s board of directors in 2014. Then-Vice President Joe Biden was serving as the Obama administration’s point man to the notoriously corrupt country at the time.

Most significant of all, the senator writes, “These documents also indicate that Joe Biden was aware of Hunter Biden’s business arrangements and may have been involved in some of them.” [Emphasis added.]

Grassley has written a series of letters to the FBI based on the allegations of whistleblowers who have reached out to his office. In his current letter, he questions whether the FBI has “followed normal investigative procedure to determine the truth and accuracy of the information.” Or have they “shut down investigative activity based on improper disinformation claims in advance of the 2020 election” as they’ve done with the other information he wrote to them about over the summer.

He wonders aloud if “U.S. Attorney Weiss has performed his own due diligence on these and related allegations.”

He notes that neither the Justice Department, nor the FBI, have “disputed the accuracy of the allegations that I have made public since May 31, 2022. The Justice Department’s and FBI’s continued silence on these matters is deafening and further erodes their credibility.”

The senator demands answers. He writes, “Simply put, enough is enough.”

Grassley writes a potent letter. His latest, however, is especially significant because it ties Biden to his son’s foreign business dealings for the first time. It states that he may have even been involved.

There is no doubt Merrick Garland and Christopher Wray will do their best to ignore it as they have with each of Grassley’s previous letters.

But they won’t be able to hide forever. Like it or not, Congress has oversight authority. In three weeks, it’s highly likely that Republicans will win the majority in the House. And it’s becoming more possible by the day the GOP could take back control of the Senate as well.

Just as the FBI’s malfeasance during the 2016 election was ultimately revealed, this will be too. The reputations of both agencies are already in shambles. When details of their second campaign to influence a presidential election are made public, it will be checkmate.

  1. This administration will still ignore attempts made by Grassley, or anyone, when it comes down to criminal allegations that have blowback to the Big Guy.
    Besides, the political solution always seems to go awry, and no one ever gets convicted of any crime, unless it happens to be a Republican as the defendant. I’m tired of hearing another potential blue ribbon committee, or a senate select committee, is about to be convened, when what always needs to happen never happens. Just theater. Since it isn’t up to me, if it were, I’d go Old Testament on all these leftists, and leave no stone unturned until every last criminal in DC has been removed from DC, even a few Republicans.
    I guess all this stuff makes for great headlines, though.

    Let’s suppose little Hunter Crackpipe gets convicted of a federal crime. Does anyone think the Big Guy won’t immediately pardon him? While that creepy old Big Guy, who is in the White House illegally, it is his right to pardon who he chooses. We screwed up letting this bunch of bottom feeders steal that last election. Stuff has its consequences, right?
    I applaud Grassley for his efforts, anyway.
