Confidential banking records related to
Hunter Biden in Senate hands: Report

Original Article

Posted By: earlybird, 2/6/2020 9:46:50 PM

The U.S. Treasury Department has started turning over confidential banking records related to Hunter Biden in response to requests from Senate investigative committees. Senate Finance Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley and Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee Chairman Ron Johnson asked the treasury in November for "suspicious activity reports," banking alerts involving money laundering or fraud, related to Biden and his associates. A spokeswoman for Sen. Ron Wyden, the ranking Democrat on the Senate Finance Committee, told Yahoo News that the department has already started turning over records. The Wyden spokeswoman criticized the Treasury Department for "rapidly complying" with the requests, calling the Republican-led Senate investigation of Biden a "sideshow.”

Comments:

Kaboom. Wyden has to be livid. Ha!

I think Hunter is a likely Arkancide candidate. If law enforcement seems like it'll ever happen, he'd make a good fall guy.

None of this would have come about if the Democrats had not launched their hate campaign against Trump. But what goes around comes around.. If the Democrats had been doing their jobs instead of trying to create a coup, this whole thing would never have happened.

Glen Beck just finished a special called "Ukraine: The Final Piece" that, if it can be corroborated, will blow the lid off Washington and the Obama Administration. What he discovered in a nutshell was that the Obama Administration took funds that Congress had voted to be used to bail out the Ukrainian banking system (why??) and deposited them in Privat Bank. Privat Bank was owned by the principal shareholder and board member of Burisma, Igor Kolomoisky. Kolomoisky was an international criminal who had been convicted of using chain saws on business rivals and, therefore, was sanctioned by the US to prevent him from doing business or travelling to the US. When the oligarch owner of Burisma, Zholshevsky learned that Joe Biden was going to be point man for Ukraine corruption he had Hunter appointed to the board of Burisma because of his ties to his father. This caused Joe Biden to lobby to have Kolomoisky's sanctions removed so he could do business and travel to meet US reps. The US deposited $1.8B dollars in Kolomoisky's Privat bank and then later reported to Ukrainian officials in an audit that the money could not be accounted for. Despite this fraud the USDOS claimed they were unconcerned about the loss of the taxpayers money. Kolomoisky just happened to also be the Ukrainian backer of the entire Ukrainian military which had been unfunded due to the theft of funds from their treasury by the Burisma oligarch, Zholschevsky. Beck shows how the Privat bank money was laundered to shell companies held by Kolomoisky and, according to Beck but still unconfirmed, were used to actually buy the tanks and other arms needed by the Ukrainians to defend themselves from the Russians. This scheme was Obama's "Iran Contra" like secret war to hide the fact that he was funding the Ukrainian military with US dollars when his public position was that he did not want to "antagonize" the Russians with lethal aid to Ukraine as the Congress had wanted. When the special prosecutor Shokin stumbled on the money laundering evidence that identified funds being paid to Hunter Biden he began an investigation into Burisma. Uncovering this Biden payment would also expose the massive money laundering that Kolomoisky had used to hide the $1.8 B funds for the secret war. That is why Biden was able to say that Obama was in on the Shokin firing because this was much larger than just protecting Hunter from legal problems. It would have blown the lid on the secret war. Beck is providing his evidence to Sen. Grassley and Johnson tomorrow morning and we'll see if this ever gets fully investigated once the magnitude of the crime is understood.

One complication to Beck's analysis is the testimony of the prosecutor, Viktor Shokin. He testified under oath and to Rudy Giuliani that he was explicitly told by Ukrainian President Poroshenko that the reason he was being fired was because he was investigating Joe Biden's son, Hunter. Poroshenko told him that Biden had called him to get Shokin to slow up the Burisma investigation and when the money laundering report led to the questioning of Hunter Biden the VP demanded he be fired or Ukraine would not get $1B in US aid. Why would Biden use this as the reason if he knew the real reason was to protect the secret war funding theft? It would have made more sense to use the less incriminating reason that "everyone" knew Shokin was corrupt rather than make it look like a bribe to protect his son. Poroshenko may have lied to Shokin to implicate Joe Biden because he wanted to cover up the secret war funding himself. In any event the idea that VP Biden would leverage $1B in US aid just to protect his son and risk obvious criminal charges seems unlikely. The motive he had to protect Kolomoiskys money laundering to steal the $1.8B in aid and use it for the defense of Ukraine seems more plausible.

Great info #5, but I don't buy the part about BO wanting to secretly arm the Ukrainians. Maybe a couple of crates of small arms, but I believe this whole thing was another taxpayer money rip off. Just like the $750 Million dollar website for 'affordable health care.'

How much of that $1.6B was siphoned off as kick-backs to Barry, the Butcher, and the rest of the corrupt demonrats? Enquiring minds want to know since I suspect this is the real reason they want the Biden scandal covered up.

Orson Bean, the witty actor and comedian, was hit and killed by a car in Los Angeles, authorities said. He was 91.

Sondland testified in President Trump’s impeachment trial, informing members of Congress that in his mind he felt there was a quid quo relationship between the president’s decision to halt aid to Ukraine and convincing Ukrainian officials to announce an investigation into Hunter Biden and the corrupt gas company Burisma.

Mitt “Pierre Delecto” Romney is enjoying an outpouring of “strange new respect” from the media today after voting with the Democrats to impeach President Trump. Thanks to Mitt, the Democrats get to claim that their impeachment show trial was “bipartisan.” Anyone who has followed Mitt’s career could have seen this betrayal coming. This isn’t the first time he’s behaved like a bitter sanctimonious weasel when it comes to Donald Trump. Four years ago, Romney used his clout as the Republican Party’s 2012 nominee to gather the media to Salt Lake City with great fanfare to hear his thoughts on the 2016 race just days before the crucial Michigan primary.

Immigration experts and House Republicans are balking at the New Way Forward Act, a Democratic bill that is being described as an embrace of “open borders” and likely to be the most “radical” legislation ever introduced in history. Democratic Illinois Rep. Jesús García, along with several other progressive House members, introduced the New Way Forward Act in December 2019, to seemingly little fanfare. The bill, among many things, calls for the decriminalization of illegal immigration, would make it more difficult to deport convicted criminal aliens, empower immigration judges to nullify deportation orders, and also calls for the return of previously deported illegal aliens.
