WASHINGTON, DC: The FBI and DOJ have been missing in action for years. Failing in disclosing and acting on the information in the Hunter Biden, Seth Rich, and Anthony Weiner laptops. The two-tiered system of American justice has never been more hypocritical on display.

Democrats and the deep state lie, cover-up and protect the likes of Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, Hunter Biden, and the Biden crime family. Yet the full weight and power of the government are brought against any Republican connected to Donald Trump.

A Tale of Three Laptops
The story of the Hunter Biden, Seth Rich, and Anthony Weiner laptops is a tale of just how debased and corrupt our Government institutions and modern media have become. Truth and reality are destroyed by the need to pursue a political agenda against all precepts of decency and honor.

Attorney General William Barr covered up the existence of the Hunter Biden FBI investigation for two years. Twitter, Facebook, and corporate media censored the Hunter Biden laptop story with weeks to go before the election. The FBI and DOJ lied for four years about having Seth Rich’s laptop and the more than 20000 files related to his murder.

Julian Assange has never been questioned about the source of the Wikileaks leak of DNC emails.

The DOJ: Protecting Democrats, attacking Trump Conservatives
None of the ancillary material found on Anthony Weiner’s laptop was ever acted on. The contents not used in his prosecution were apparently “deleted”. That would include all of Huma Abedin’s “insurance” files, and all copies of her correspondence with Secretary of State Clinton.

Egregious and obvious crimes occur, repeatedly, and nothing ever comes from it. Like the Durham investigation into the Russia hoax. The Jeffrey Epstein videotapes and flight logs. Or the 40000 Americans illegally spied on with NSA systems by John Brennan for the Obama White House.

The FBI and DOJ are rotten to the core. The crimes of the Obama Administration, Hillary Clinton, and Joe Biden himself will never see the light of day. Carter Page, Paul Manafort, and General Michael Flynn had their lives destroyed. The Mueller/Weissman inquisition pursued a McCarthyite conspiracy they themselves created, and will never be held accountable for it.

That John Durham did not release his findings before the 2020 election is a catastrophe for American justice. That Hunter Biden’s sordid investigations were both true, undisclosed, and then censored is actual election interference. By our own government. Our own media. It is a travesty.

The Hunter Biden Laptops
Let’s remember that there are not one but 3 Hunter Biden laptops involved in his wide-ranging crimes. There is the laptop he left at the computer store in Delaware. Packed with incriminating emails, texts, and copious explicit footage of Hunter engaged in sex acts. Including an apparent “foot job” with an underage girl who may well be his own niece. As well as explicit sex with a very underage Chinese girl. The FBI seized this laptop by subpoena in December 2019.
The second laptop belongs to Devon Archer. He is the longtime Hunter Biden business associate who is now serving time in prison for defrauding Native American tribes out of tens of millions of dollars. He and Hunter set up the Burisma deal after Archer met with Joe Biden and Biden secured funding for a $50 million natural gas deal with Ukraine. Most of which went to Burisma.

Burisma in turn paid Hunter Biden and Devon Archer millions as members of their board.

A sordid trail of emails and corruption
The trail of e-mails between Hunter and Devon are verified by the G-Mail account of Devon Archers business partner and co-defendant Bevan Cooney.

Cooney is serving 30 months in Federal prison for the same crime as Archer. Even though Hunter Biden was intimately involved in the fraud, he was not indicted. Cooney and Archer rightfully feel that they are taking the fall for Hunter. And they are correct.

Cooney turned over his G mail account to Peter Schweitzer at Breitbart. The 26000 emails included absolutely implicated Hunter and the Biden Crime family in a wide range of deals. From China to Kazakhstan. To the $3.5 million dollar payment from the Mayor of Moscow’s wife.

As the Washington Examiner put it:
“A former business partner of Hunter Biden currently serving a prison sentence for fraud has reportedly released 26,000 emails detailing his business operations with Biden and Devon Archer, another business partner. The emails make “explicit” that Hunter Biden was “trading off the Biden name, the Biden connections, and the Biden access.

Then there is Tony Bobulinski
The 3rd laptop belongs to Tony Bobulinski, who came forward in October before the election to confirm that Joe Biden was intimately aware of Hunter Biden’s activities in China. Bobulinski was brought in to work with Hunter Biden on the corporate governance of their far-flung operations. He confirmed the contents of the laptop in the New York Post story that was heavily censored. Bobulinski detailed a meeting with Joe Biden personally, twice, to discuss Hunter Biden’s business dealing. He appeared on Tucker Carlson on October 27th, a week before the election.

Tony Bobulkinski was censored as well.
As were stories about him. (Tony Bobulinski’s Smoking Gun: Joe Biden IS the “Big Guy ” in China scheme ) His laptop and all its contents were turned over to the FBI.

After the election, it became known that the FBI had been conducting multiple investigations into Hunter Biden for over two years. The American people might have wanted to know that. The American “news” media, if it actually existed, would have covered this significant true story as well.

The various Hunter Biden laptops and their endlessly incriminating information remain in the great black hole of deception at the FBI and DOJ. Hunter Biden’s defense attorney’s law partner in his law firm has been named to oversee the division of the DOJ investigating Hunter Biden.

You can’t make this up.

Seth Rich: 4 years of FBI lies
The FBI has denied it had Seth Rich’s laptop for over 4 years. As it turns out they not only have his laptop, but they have over 20000 files on the Seth Rich murder. All of which they denied having. For four years. Here is how Lawflog.com described it in an article in the Gateway Pundit.

“After three years of claiming that it could not find any records about murdered Democratic National Committee employee Seth Rich, the FBI admitted today that it has thousands of pages of information about him, further admitting that it has custody of his laptop.”

“Here’s an excerpt from the email that I received this morning from an attorney representing the FBI against my client, Brian Huddleston, in Huddleston v. FBI, Case No. 4:20-CV-00447 (E.D. Tex.):
FBI has completed the initial search identifying approximately 50 cross-reference serials, with attachments totaling over 20,000 pages, in which Seth Rich is mentioned. The FBI has also located leads that indicate additional potential records that require further searching. FBI is also currently working on getting the files from Seth Rich’s personal laptop into a format to be reviewed. In summary, the FBI has made significant progress in the search, but there is still much work that lies ahead, including (1) ) processing the approximately 50 cross-references (with thousands of pages to ingest and sort through), 2) undertaking some level of review of the personal laptop, and 3) completing all remaining searches.
The Seth Rich laptop and its hidden contents remain in FBI DOJ custody to this day.
It would seem that the central question of his potential involvement with Wikileaks would be problematic to the fully discredited Russia Hoax narrative. Don’t hold your breath waiting for the Biden DOJ to expose the truth, or question Julian Assange. The Seth Rich laptop is in the black hole of the FBI and the two-tiered American lack of Justice system.

The Anthony Weiner laptop
When the FBI seized the Anthony Weiner laptop in September of 2016 it was a treasure trove of every email Huma Abedin had sent or received from Hillary Clinton, other aides, and the Clinton Foundation. There was much more than the 30,000 emails she had erased to hide the criminal corruption of the Clinton Foundation pay for play scheme. Yet the DOJ was obsessed with protecting Clinton instead, to the extent of erasing evidence of criminal behavior.

FBI Special Agent John Robertson describes for the DOJ IG Michael Horowitz how he was ordered by top brass at his agency to erase all findings pertaining to the contents of Anthony Weiner’s laptop, which he was assigned to investigate.

According to the Gateway Pundit
The crickets I was hearing were really making me uncomfortable because something was going to come down,” Robertson said he later told Justice Department investigators. “Why isn’t anybody here? Like if I’m the supervisor of any [counterintelligence] squad … and I hear about this, I’m getting on with headquarters and saying, ‘Hey, some agent working child porn here may have [Hillary Clinton] emails. Get your ass on the phone, call [the case agent], and get a copy of that drive,’ because that’s how it should be. And that nobody reached out to me within, like, that night, I still to this day don’t understand what the hell went wrong.” Robertson wrote a “Letter to Self” in late October after Oct. 19, 2016, meeting, during which he implored Assistant U.S. Attorney Amanda Kramer of the Southern District of New York to push FBI leadership to look at the thousands of emails he had unearthed.
“I have very deep misgivings about the institutional response of the FBI to the congressional investigation into the Hillary Clinton email matter … Put simply: I don’t believe the handling of the material I have by the FBI is ethically or morally right. But my lawyer’s advice — that I simply put my SSA on notice should cover me — is that I have completed CYA [Cover Your Ass], and I have done so,” Robertson wrote. “Further, I was told by [Kramer] that should I ‘whistleblow,’ I will be prosecuted.”
Robertson continued:
“I possess — the FBI possesses — 20 times more emails than Comey testified to. … While Comey did not know at the time about what I have, people in the FBI do now, and as far as I know, we are being silent. … If I say or do nothing more, I am falling short ethically and morally.”
Robertson told to The Daily Mail: “The only advice from his bosses was to erase his office computer, which meant leaving no record of his investigations.”
No sign of accountability for Democrats, ever
From Hunter Biden to Seth Rich to Anthony Weiner the corrupt machinery of the FBI and DOJ is continuing to protect the corruption of Democrat elites and their abundant corrupt pay-to-play schemes. Hunter Biden will never be held accountable.

Seth Rich’s murder will always be “unsolved’. We will never know what happened with Wikileaks and the DNC emails. Political prisoner and journalist Julian Assange will never be questioned or offered immunity in exchange for the truth.
Anthony Weiner was prosecuted for a minor sex crime, while the abundant crimes and evidence on his laptop have disappeared into the mists of history.

Hillary Clinton and the Clinton Foundation will never be held accountable. Bill Clinton will never have to answer for his actions with Jeffrey Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell. The Clinton Foundation will never be prosecuted for being a conduit for hundreds of millions of dollars in bribes in relation to Uranium One. Or the money they stole from Haiti.

No one will ever be held accountable for The Russia Hoax.
No one will ever pay for the vicious excesses of the Mueller Weissman inquisition. Andrew Weissmann will never have to answer for his crimes. John Durham remains shrouded in secrecy. It is infuriating.

We are long past expecting any justice in the 5-year deep state coup against President Trump.

The corporate media will continue to be the lapdog of Joe Biden and the Obama coup plotters. John Brennan, James Comey, James Clapper, and Andy McCabe will continue their lucrative TV careers. They will never answer for any of their crimes. Neither will Peter Strzok. Or Stefan Halper.

No one will ever answer for the crimes of the Obama White House.
Susan Rice is running the Biden White House. Barack Obama is still running the country by proxy from his bunker in Kalorama. Joe Biden is the protected frontman. Kamala Harris awaits in the wings. The deep state reigns triumphant.

Meanwhile, the FBI and DOJ sit on the Hunter Biden, Seth Rich, and Anthony Weiner laptops. Not to be seen again. I have written many times in the last three years. Including when I thought Durham would act decisively, that we are about to find out what kind of country we live in.

It turns out we live in a lawless police state with a two-tiered hopelessly politicized system of justice. Where Democrats are protected in spite of unbridled crimes and corruption, and any challenge to the power structure, however legitimate, is targeted and destroyed.

Our institutions are broken. Our media is corrupt. It is difficult to believe that the American Republic can long survive in the face of this cesspool of such obvious and horrific truths.

Hunter Biden's 'tell-all' autobiography promised the unvarnished story of his struggles with drugs, family turmoil and his controversial love life.

But there were many shocking details of his debauched life that the president's son chose not to share with readers, including details of his fragile relationship with his father.

    The president's son left his 2017 MacBook Pro laptop at a Wilmington, Delaware computer repair shop in April 2019 and never returned for it.
Emails leaked from the computer sparked a scandal before the 2020 presidential election in October, but were dismissed as Russian disinformation by the Bidens and other senior Democrats, social media giants Twitter and Facebook, and several major media organizations.

After obtaining a copy of the hard drive, DailyMail.com commissioned top cyber forensics experts Maryman & Associates to analyze its data and determine whether the laptop's contents were real.

The firm's founder, Brad Maryman, is a 29-year FBI veteran Supervisory Special Agent who served as an Information Security Officer and founded its first computer forensics lab.

Maryman and his business partner Dr. Joseph Greenfield used the same forensic tools to pick apart the drive as federal and state law enforcement use in criminal investigations, and prepared a report for DailyMail.com.

The report said the data on the drive 'appear to be authentic', and that after an extensive search of its contents for any tell-tale signs of tampering, Maryman and Greenfield found 'no evidence' of fabrication – by Russians or anyone else.

'The data on the system before April 2019 appears to be related to Mr. Biden, with timestamps appearing to be between 2016 and 2019,' the Maryman and Associates report said.

'The operating system timestamps appear to be authentic, and no evidence was found to suggest that the timestamps or data were altered or manufactured. No indications were found that would indicate the data was manufactured.'

In a presidential debate in October, Joe Biden referred to the leaks of Hunter's emails as 'a bunch of garbage.'

But in an interview with CBS on Sunday to promote his new book, Beautiful Things, Hunter said the laptop 'could be' his.

'There could be a laptop out there that was stolen from me. It could be that I was hacked. It could be that it was the — that it was Russian intelligence. It could be that it was stolen from me or that there was a laptop stolen from me,' he said.

When Joe texted him a typically doting message 'Good morning my beautiful son. I miss you and love you. Dad' on February 24 that year, Hunter raged at his father for 'having made clear to the world that the only reason for not [running for president is your] family problems im glad to be the f***ing bullseye you painted on my back'

Among the 103,199 text messages on the hard drive dating from 2016 to March 2019 are fraught conversations between President Joe Biden and his son.

The texts reveal how Joe was sucked into his son's torrid love life, became a punching bag for Hunter's drug-fueled rants, and paid his grandchildren's bills when Hunter had drained his bank accounts from his spending on prostitutes and crack cocaine.

When the former Delaware senator was elected Vice President in 2008, it put an end to Hunter's lucrative career as a lobbyist to avoid the appearance of conflicts of interest.

Hunter then embarked on a series of controversial business ventures and fell into a cycle of crack and prostitute binges, scandal and rehab.

By 2019 his texts appeared to be seething with resentment.

When Joe texted him a typically doting message 'Good morning my beautiful son. I miss you and love you. Dad' on February 24 that year, Hunter raged at his father for 'having made clear to the world that the only reason for not [running for president is your] family problems im glad to be the f***ing bullseye you painted on my back.'

Hunter complained that his father's advice to not defend himself in the media over stories about his expensive divorce from his ex-wife Kathleen Biden or his affair with his brother's widow Hallie had backfired, and added sarcastically: 'Oh …good morning …from f***ing rehab.'

'Your team just made me the uncontrollable troubled tax cheat philanderer sex and drug addict that you tried so hard to fix but couldn't yt. They just totally wrote my life away,' he wrote.

'If you dont run ill never have a chance at redemption.'

Joe replied, promising his son he would run for President but adding that he was worried his texts were 'a target' for hacking.

'I'll run but I need you,' he wrote. 'H[allie] is wrong. Only focus is recovery. Nothing else... When you can and feel like it call. Positive my text etc a target. Love.'

He declared his candidacy two months later.

After another rant from Hunter in September 2018 Joe wrote: 'Be careful what you text. Likely I'm being hacked.'

The future president had good reason to worry, as his phone was filling up with incriminating and embarrassing texts as his son's relationship with Hallie disintegrated, according to Hunter's messages to him.

When Hunter's controversial affair with Beau's widow was publicly revealed in March 2017, Joe reluctantly released a statement giving the couple his blessing.
But a year later he was already being drawn into the couple's meltdown by his erratic, addict son.

In July 2018 Hunter sent a recording to his father of himself talking on the phone to Hallie.

Joe responded: 'Got your text. Can't say I'm surprised. Going to bed I'll call you tomorrow morning. Love you. Be strong. Love Dad.'

AUTHENTICATING THE LAPTOP
DailyMail.com commissioned cyber forensics experts at Maryman & Associates to examine the hard drive to determine its authenticity.

The firm's founder, Brad Maryman, was a 29-year veteran of the FBI, served as a Chief Information Security Officer and founded the bureau's cyber forensics unit. His partner, Dr. Joseph Greenfield, is an associate professor at the University of Southern California and helped write their degree program in intelligence and cyber operations.

After an extensive analysis of the hard drive, Greenfield and Maryman produced a report for DailyMail.com detailing their findings.

Using the same forensic tools as federal and state law enforcement in criminal investigations, they found a total of 103,000 text messages, 154,000 emails and more than 2,000 photos.

- They found emails for multiple accounts on the laptop dating back to 2009, and other data which 'appears to be related to Mr. Biden' between 2016 and 2019.
- The report's findings were consistent with the known timeline for the hard drive. A Wilmington, Delaware computer store work order with Hunter's signature shows he left his 2017 MacBook Pro laptop there on April 12, 2019.
- The Maryman & Associates report said the original 'Macintosh HD' drive was created on March 28, 2018
- Hunter's iCloud email address was added to the laptop's system on October 21 2018, as well as his work email at his firm Rosemont Seneca on February 2 2019.
- The same day, a Gmail address he used to log onto sex cam sites, and another personal Gmail address belonging to Hunter, were also added.
- Beau Biden's old Gmail account was added on February 7 2019.
- Emails addressed to Hunter's various email addresses dating from December 2009 to December 2020 were found on the system.
- An iPad with the name 'Hunter's iPad' and three email addresses associated with the Biden family was backed up on the laptop and on iCloud in January 2019 and again a month later.
- Greenfield found 818 call logs in this iPad backup with timestamps from June 2016 to February 2019.
- There were 8,942 entries in the iPad's contacts book, created between April 2016 and January 2019.
- In February 2019 an iPhone XS was also synced with the laptop. Its serial number was consistent with the timestamps of the data on the phone.

In conclusion, 'The operating system timestamps appear to be authentic, and no evidence was found to suggest that the timestamps or data were altered or manufactured,' the report said. 'No indications were found that would suggest the data was manufactured.'

The president's continued forgiveness and offers of money via text to his son after his crack binges – are at odds with his long history of tough stances against drug users and suppliers.

Joe criticized George Bush Sr's 1980s War on Drugs for being 'not tough enough' and wrote punitive laws with harsher sentences for drug crimes when he was head of the Senate Judiciary Committee in the late 1980s and early 1990s.

His son's drug-fueled calamities have resulted in multiple run-ins with law enforcement that would usually result in criminal charges or investigation, but Hunter has so far avoided the dock.

His laptop, which was handed over to the FBI in 2019, is brimming with evidence of apparent criminal activity by Hunter and his associates including drug trafficking and prostitution.

Photos also show Hunter with cracked and badly damaged teeth - known as 'meth mouth' - as he sits in a dentist chair, and another photo showing him visibly balding.

Hunter photographed and filmed himself, often with two prostitutes at a time, in explicit videos that he then posted on adult website Pornhub under the username 'RHEast'.

Hunter filmed himself with the women from his laptop webcam, sometimes shooting at different angles using an iPad and cell phone.

The sex tapes and shots with hookers are mixed in with family photos, business documents and selfies from his then-lover and brother's widow Hallie in his laptop's photos folder.

Texts show he would often order drugs to hotel rooms and take them with the women before or after sex – and photos include bottles of 100mg Viagra pills, the highest dose prescribed by doctors.

His Pornhub account had 66 award badges, including a badge for reaching 50 subscribers, watching 500 videos, and watching porn in high definition.

Hunter would sometimes leave on the webcam after filming his sex scenes, and captured himself hunched over his computer, intently watching back through the footage.

In one video on the laptop, Hunter recorded his screen and can be heard speaking to a woman about his favorite porn stars as he browsed an adult website with her.

Texts from February 20, 2019 appear to show Hunter coordinating with a woman called Dianna Pagano to transport other women in Ubers to his hotel room in New Haven, Connecticut.

A month later Pagano texted Hunter offering to 'hang' with him for '100 or 200 for the night', as well as appearing to offer him drugs, saying 'My guy is giving me 2500qorrh of work cuz he is going on vacation. I just gotta give him 200$; and 'I got some good work if u need anything hun its fire'.

Pagano was charged in November that year with violating her probation by allegedly running a drug ring out of her home in East Haven.

Police told the New Haven Register that items 'believed to be the fruits of a narcotics and prostitution operation, [were] found within the residence.'

Pagano was not charged with a prostitution-related offence.

Hunter may have narrowly avoided a tangle with law enforcement, as six of Pagano's alleged customers were also arrested in the police raid.

Hunter had a second close shave with the law in March 2019 according to his texts, when police allegedly showed up at a Naugatuck, Connecticut, motel where Hunter was taking drugs and entertaining hookers.

When the president's son left his Comfort Inn room to get cash from an ATM, one of the panicked prostitutes, Crystal, texted him 'U called the cops???'

Returning to his room a confused Hunter texted their dealer and pimp 'Where is she? She said the cops came to the room????? WTF man? I went to bank. Call me back.'

Hunter did come under investigation after he dropped off a rental car in Prescott, Arizona, leaving behind a crack pipe and white powder, his drivers license and his late brother Beau's attorney general badge.

Hunter allegedly used a fake name to call the Hertz rental the next day to tell them he left the keys in the car's gas tank compartment.

The police report said they called in the FBI and Hunter was 'located by Secret Service' and found to be 'well.'

Prescott Police Department said they couldn't find fingerprints on the pipe. It is unclear whether the department tried to extract DNA from the pipe.

Despite being dubbed the state's 'foremost pot prohibitionist', County Attorney Sheila Polk declined to prosecute.

Hunter was investigated but again not prosecuted in 2018 after Hallie left his .38 caliber handgun in a Wilmington, Delaware grocery store trash can.

In texts to his therapist, Hunter claimed that when Delaware cops found the gun 'the FBI and the Secret Service' got involved, and that Hallie told officers she took the weapon because she was 'afraid for the kids' and 'because she was scared I would harm myself due to my drug and alcohol problem'.

A copy of a police report obtained by news site Politico confirmed the October 23, 2018 incident.

The site reported that Hunter may have lied on his background check to obtain the gun, which would be a felony if true.




In texts obtained by DailyMail.com, Hunter messaged his therapist to tell him about Hallie dropping his gun in a grocery store trash can. 'She stole the gun out of my truck lock box and threw in a garbage can full to the top at Jansens. Then told me it was my problem to deal with,' Hunter wrote

One question on the background check document is: 'Are you an unlawful user of, or addicted to, marijuana or any depressant, stimulant, narcotic drug, or any other controlled substance?'

Hunter reportedly checked 'No' on the form, despite photos and texts from his laptop showing heavy drug use at the time, including crack cocaine.

Prosecutions for lying on such forms are very rare, and police did not pursue Hunter over the apparent infraction.

According to Hunter's texts to his therapist about the incident, the Secret Service were also involved in the investigation.

The Department of Homeland Security agency claimed they had no record of agents investigating the incident, and Joe Biden, who was not under their protection at the time, said he had no knowledge of their involvement.

But Hunter's texted claims that the agency was involved are echoed by two sources who spoke to Politico.

One source said Secret Service agents asked the Wilmington, Delaware gun store owner where Hunter bought the .38 for the sale paperwork.

The source, who the site reported had firsthand knowledge of the episode, said that the store owner, Ron Palmieri, refused to hand over the papers as he feared the agents wanted to hide Hunter's ownership of the gun.

The source said Palmieri instead later turned over the documents to the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.

A second source who was reportedly briefed by the Secret Service confirmed the story to the site.

Texts from earlier that year show Hunter was being guarded by a Secret Service agent while he went on a week-long drug and prostitute binge in a Hollywood hotel.

The texts raise questions for the federal agency, which has claimed that no Bidens received protection in 2018.


The agent added that he was working on 'Celtic's account', an apparent code name for a senior politician under protection, and told the president's son 'DC is calling me every 10.' The Bidens lost their protection by federal agents after Joe ended his term as Vice President in January 2017, and did not officially regain a detail until congressional officials approved his application in Spring last year
In the messages, a Los Angeles-based Secret Service officer warned Hunter he would 'have to assume you are in danger' and commandeer keys to the room if he didn't come out.

The agent added that he was working on 'Celtic's account', an apparent code name for a senior politician under protection, and told the president's son 'DC is calling me every 10.'

Press releases by a private security firm published a week after the text exchange with Hunter, announced the agent left the Secret Service after a 25-year career and joined the firm as CEO.

The Bidens lost their protection by federal agents after Joe ended his term as Vice President in January 2017, and did not officially regain a detail until congressional officials approved his application in Spring last year.

A bill from The Jeremy Hotel in West Hollywood obtained by DailyMail.com shows that Hunter stayed in a third-floor suite for seven days from May 19 2018, holed up ordering room service each night, drinking at the hotel bar and racking up a $5,195 bill – including a $400 fine for smoking in his room.

Texts on the laptop show that during his lavish stay Hunter sought refills for prescriptions of Viagra generic equivalent sildenafil, an antidepressant Lexapro, and anxiety medication Clonazepam, a similar drug to Xanax.

Emails from May 24 show Hunter added a prostitute as a wire transfer recipient on his bank account and wired out $25,000.

DailyMail.com obtained a copy of Hunter's laptop hard drive from former Steve Bannon podcast co-host Jack Maxey.

John Paul Mac Isaac, the owner of the computer store where Hunter abandoned his laptop, gave a copy of its hard drive to Donald Trump's lawyer Rudy Giuliani in September last year.

Giuliani reportedly leaked documents and photos from the drive to the New York Post, and also gave a whole copy of the drive to Trump's former advisor Bannon and his podcast co-host Maxey.

Hunter, the Secret Service, their agent who now works for a private company and the White House did not respond to requests for comment.

John Ratcliffe says law enforcement knows it really is Hunter Biden’s laptop — not Russian disinformation

by Jerry Dunleavy, Justice Department Reporter |
April 11, 2021 12:37 PM

Former President Donald Trump’s top spy chief claims law enforcement knows the laptop purportedly belonging to Hunter Biden is indeed the laptop of President Joe Biden’s son, blasting the former intelligence officials, politicians, and members of the media who suggested the laptop story was a Russian disinformation operation.

Last week, Hunter Biden falsely claimed the intelligence community publicly concluded that his laptop saga is “Russian disinformation." During the media blitz to promote his memoir, Beautiful Things, he admitted that the laptop allegedly dropped off for repairs at a Delaware repair shop in 2019 "certainly" could be his and suggested it could have been stolen, could have been hacked, or Russian intelligence services could have been involved. He provided no evidence.

John Ratcliffe, who served as Trump’s director of national intelligence, discussed Biden's comments about the laptop during an appearance on Sunday Morning Futures with Maria Bartiromo on Fox News.

“To your point earlier about his book tour and the things that he doesn’t remember over the last four years, again, there was an FBI investigation ongoing at the time, before the election. It was Hunter Biden’s laptop. The things on that laptop that the FBI and the Department of Justice have — those are real,” Ratcliffe said. “But now the question is: will Joe Biden’s Department of Justice exercise prosecutorial discretion against Joe Biden’s son? I don’t know the answer to that. I know what the answer should be.”

Biden has said he doesn't know if he ever lost a laptop, saying, “Not that I know of, but, you know, read the book, and you’ll realize that I wasn’t keeping tabs on possessions well for about a four-year period of time.” During a podcast interview last week, he also claimed a recently released report from the Office of the Director of National Intelligence assessed the laptop story was a Kremlin-based falsehood.

The report concluded that “Russian state media, trolls, and online proxies, including those directed by Russian intelligence, published disparaging content about President Biden, his family, and the Democratic Party, and heavily amplified related content circulating in US media, including stories centered on his son.” It did not reference the Hunter Biden laptop story and reached no public conclusions related to it.

Joe Biden’s 2020 campaign, along with many in the media, dismissed the laptop story, which emerged in October, as being part of a Russian disinformation operation, without evidence. Concerns about Hunter Biden gained broader attention late last year after multiple outlets reported that he is being federally investigated in connection with his taxes and potentially related to his overseas business with China.

During a presidential debate, Joe Biden dismissed the laptop emails as part of a “Russian plan,” saying, "there are 50 former national intelligence folks who said that what [Trump's] accusing me of is a Russian plan.”

Biden was referring to a Politico report that over 50 ex-intelligence officials, including Obama CIA Director John Brennan, signed a letter in an article titled “ Hunter Biden story is Russian disinfo, dozens of former intel officials say.” The signatories cited another article claiming that “federal authorities are investigating whether the material … is part of a smoke bomb of disinformation pushed by Russia” but stressed that “we do not know whether these press reports are accurate.” The officials claimed the laptop “has all the classic earmarks of a Russian information operation” but admitted that “we do not have evidence of Russian involvement.”

Ratcliffe blasted the officials on Sunday.

“To have 50 former Obama-Clinton-Biden national security officials come out after the director of national intelligence says this is not true, and protect a false narrative to protect Joe Biden and try and influence the outcome of the election, that is the definition of politicizing intelligence,” he said. “And people ask me all the time about election interference and election influence, and yeah, we need to be concerned about Russia and China and Iran, but there’s no greater expression of that than what you just saw there. A completely false narrative.”

“The intelligence community knew that this was not Russian disinformation, and law enforcement knew that it was Hunter Biden’s laptop — there was an open investigation into that, and yet those officials, supported by a corporate media, ran a false narrative and misinformed the American people," he added.

Ratcliffe also pointed to comments made by Democratic House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff in October. CNN’s Wolf Blitzer asked about the laptop, and Schiff claimed without evidence that the laptop story originated with Russia, saying, “Clearly, the origins of this whole smear are from the Kremlin.” Blitzer also asked Schiff about a picture of Trump holding up a copy of the New York Post, and Schiff said that “this particular smear, though, has also been acknowledged to come from the Kremlin, and there it is in the Oval Office, another wonderful propaganda coup for Vladimir Putin.”

At the time, Ratcliffe weighed in, saying, “The intelligence community doesn’t believe that because there is no intelligence that supports that, and we have shared no intelligence with Chairman Schiff or any other member of Congress that Hunter Biden’s laptop is part of some Russian disinformation campaign. It is simply not true.”

On Sunday, Ratcliffe added, “It’s about being truthful, and that’s why I came out at that time after Adam Schiff came out with a false political narrative about this being Russian disinformation when there was absolutely no intelligence to support that. And it shouldn’t surprise us — that’s what Adam Schiff does as a politician.”

After being asked in December if he still thought reports about his son were Russian disinformation, Joe Biden said, "Yes, yes, yes. God love you, man — you're a one-horse pony, I tell you."

Letting Hunter Biden Off Is A Message To Us Peasants

Letting Hunter Biden Off Is A Message To Us Peasants

Source: AP Photo/Andrew Harnik

The fact that the loser spawn of Grandpa Badfinger is thumbing his coke-caked nose at the justice system represents not merely the tacky machinations of a crusty pol protecting the family Fredo. It has a deeper and more cynical purpose – to show us that our overlords are unaccountable and that the law is now merely another implement in the regime’s toolkit of oppression. They are telling us that they and their scumbag progeny can do whatever they want, but that we can’t.

In the short term, this is infuriating. In the long term, it could bring down the system our garbage ruling caste inherited.

They are throwing it in our faces, thinking it’s a good plan to force us to submit.

Right now, hundreds of Americans are being prosecuted for trespassing inside their own Capitol building, and eager agents of the American Stasi are salivating at the idea of charging them with “sedition” for doing exactly what hordes of leftist dirtbags did in the past. Of course, none of the leftist dirtbags were shot dead while unarmed by some cop whose name we still don’t know. That’s another message. If you are a petty criminal dying of a self-inflicted fentanyl overdose while you resist arrest, we’ll know the name of the cop unlucky enough to be the guy arresting you when you expired. But cap an unarmed female vet for climbing through a window? Shhhh. That’s a secret.

President Asterisk came out and announced that his administration was going to be cracking down on those terrible gun people even as his Snortunate Son got a pass for lying about his drug addiction on his background check. Think you would catch a break? Maybe if you were in a blue big city – weirdly (okay, not weirdly – by design) the inhabitants of Democrat petri dishes don’t get charged for this kind of gun crime.

It’s more than just helping out a relative or catering to commie voters. It’s a demonstration of power. They can make the rules and break the rules, or break the rules over their enemies’ heads.

You are their enemy. The law is not designed to stop crime or save lives but to create another way to keep you in line, frightened and defenseless.

This dual track justice system is nothing new – it’s been going on for a while. We saw it with Felonia Milhous von Pantsuit, whose classified info antics would have sent any of us off for a stretch in the stony lonesome. Not her. She didn’t miss a single goblet of her screw-top Trader Joe’s chardonnay. Those of us who handled classified info understand at a gut level just how appalling this whole thing was.

There’s no leeway for people like us, no bending over backwards and then around again into a knot to explain the crimes away when a peasant screws up, even by a simple oversight. But she is special. She did it on purpose, got caught, and all the best and the brightest made sure she skated.

Why?

Again, it’s not merely that she’s connected and she called in some favors. There’s a method to their mendacity. They want us to know that the law is but a weapon to be used against you if you step out of line.

Andrew Cuomo was taking liberties with lib girls (who pretended to be astonished that he acted just like every other lib potentate) when he wasn’t taking thousands of lives of old people killed in COVID hotboxes. He’ll walk. You wouldn’t.

DC teen sociopaths kill a hardworking guy while stealing his car. They got a deal. You wouldn’t.

But a patriot comes to Washington and walks through the Rotunda – lock him up forever!

Yet when some BLM/Antifa pustule tries to set fire to a federal courthouse? Case dismissed – for him, her, or whatever its nonbinary pronoun is this week.

Gee, maybe our intrepid, licensed, registered regime journalists will call out this outrageous corruption. Oh right, no they won’t. In fact, instead of being attracted to this reeking pile of corruption that was just begging for exposure, the media grown-up maggots instead went and started buzzing around Ron DeSantis.

Does anyone imagine that if Don Jr. had been a meth-mouthed pervert who got kicked out of the Navy on his first day for drugs and who had filled out a false background check for a gun that this would not have been the first question to President Trump? Did it even get brought up to *, much less in any of Huffer Biden’s interviews for his new zillion-dollar book, “My Ghostwriter Wrote This So My Loser Family Could Get Yet Another Laundered Pay-Off?”

Surely you jest. I just hope he had the class to buy the swooning reporters dinner first and to wear protection.

So, the prosecutors won’t prosecute and the reporters won’t report, though they’ll all babble endlessly about the importance of our sacred institutions even as they set them aflame. This is unsustainable. What will we citizens do?

First, they’ll vote for harder and harder core right wingers. Self-preservation will require pummelers over policy wonks. Thought Trump was a monster? Get a load of what’s coming. The time of such puff-people as Asa! And Kristi! And Nikki! is ending. We’ll demand Genghis Khan. And we’ll get him.

Then look for us to do the same when we get back in power. Hey, new rules, as well as self-preservation. But do two wrongs make a right? Probably not, but just try explaining how this stuff suddenly stopped being okay when we start doing it back at them. Good luck with that.

And look for citizens on juries to go through jury selection nodding about how they will follow the judge’s instructions and deliberate and all that good stuff and then nullify the hell out of whatever the DoJ puts in front of them. This is why they are so eager to get cases in Democrat enclaves like DC – they are terrified that normal Americans in normal America will refuse to convict.

Now, the bow-tied virgin Fredocon corps will cry about this, and for once they are partially right. A justice system in shambles is not what any of us should want, but it is inevitable when one side tries to use it as its cudgel against the other side. And the reaction of the oppressed is equally inevitable. It’s not a matter of “principle” – perhaps fighting the politicization of justice instead of flaking for transexual story time might have been a better plan – but of human nature. We see the system has no clothes, and we will not compliment its outfit. Instead, we’ll mock its shriveled genitals.

The liberal establishment has succumbed to the temptation to rely on power instead of the law impartially and fairly applied. It further imagines, since our ruling caste is historically illiterate and totally ignorant of human, much less American, nature, that it can flaunt this unfairness and to intimidate us with it. Hitler thought he could bomb the Brits and butcher the Russians into submission. But it just made them madder, and in the end he blew his miserable brains out in a dingy cave.

We will not be bullied into serfdom. If power is the currency, we normal Americans have plenty of cash. Our failed elite would be wise to not encourage a spending spree.

The FBI Has RAIDED Giuliani's Home And Office, Democrats Make SHOCKING Move Against Political Rivals

•Apr 28, 2021

Tim Pool


The FBI Has RAIDED Giuliani's Home And Office, Democrats Make SHOCKING Move Against Political Rivals. Rudy Giuliani is accused of lobbying on behalf of a foreign organization. As Democrats came into power they quickly moved to go after the previous administration in unprecedented ways, notably having feds target not just a lawyer but the lawyer of the former president Donald Trump. Merrick garland green lit the operation. Republicans and Conservatives view this as retaliation and retribution from a Trump deranged political class while the left sees this as justice finally being served. The case is the reignition of Ukrainegate, Burisma, and the Hunter Biden scandal

BREAKING: Crooked SDNY Raids Rudy Giuliani’s Manhattan Apartment and Seizes His Electronic Devices

By Kristinn Taylor
Published April 28, 2021 at 12:03pm

The Biden administration’s Justice Department obtained a search warrant for Rudy Giuliani and used it to search his New York City apartment and office, seizing records and electronic devices. Giuliani has been a private attorney for President Trump in his election cases and was instrumental in getting Hunter Biden’s laptop into the news before the 2020 presidential election. Giuliani is reportedly being investigated over his alleged lobbying efforts in 2019 regarding Ukraine when he was investigating allegations of corruption involving Joe and Hunter Biden and Ukraine.

Giuliani is a legendary former mayor of New York City who rescued the city in 1990s from high crime and fiscal mismanagement and kept the city calm with strong leadership during the September 11, 2001 terror attack. Before then he was the high profile U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York, taking down the five families of the mafia.

New York Times excerpt:

Federal investigators in Manhattan executed a search warrant on Wednesday at the Upper East Side apartment of Rudolph W. Giuliani, the former New York City mayor who became President Donald J. Trump’s personal lawyer, stepping up a criminal investigation into Mr. Giuliani’s dealings in Ukraine, three people with knowledge of the matter said.

One of the people said the investigators had seized Mr. Giuliani’s electronic devices.

The federal authorities have been largely focused on whether Mr. Giuliani illegally lobbied the Trump administration in 2019 on behalf of Ukrainian officials and oligarchs, who at the same time were helping Mr. Giuliani search for dirt on Mr. Trump’s political rivals, including President Biden, who was then a leading candidate for the Democratic presidential nomination.

The United States Attorney’s office in Manhattan and the F.B.I. had for months sought to secure a search warrant for Mr. Giuliani’s phones.

Under Mr. Trump, senior political appointees in the Justice Department repeatedly sought to block such a warrant, The New York Times reported, slowing the investigation as it was gaining momentum last year. After Merrick B. Garland was confirmed as President Biden’s attorney general, the Justice Department lifted its objection to the search.

NBC News reported two locations were searched, “NBC confirms Giuliani raids, @jonathan4ny: “We were told from multiple sources that the FBI did hit two locations. One the upper east side apartment of Rudy Giuliani and also his park avenue office building as a search for electronics.”

Crooked SDNY Behind Raid on Giuliani’s Apartment and Office Has History of Targeting Conservatives – Arizona Voter Fraud Audit Must Be Over the Target

By Joe Hoft
Published April 28, 2021 at 1:00pm

OUTRAGEOUS: The corrupt SDNY has raided Rudy Giuliani’s Manhattan Apartment and seized his electronic devices.

These people want power and will do anything to get it and to keep it.

Business Insider is reporting:
Federal investigators raided former New York mayor Rudy Giuliani’s Manhattan apartment on Wednesday and seized his electronic devices, The New York Times reported.

The feds executed the raid after obtaining a search warrant, and it was part of an ongoing criminal investigation into Giuliani’s foreign dealings in Ukraine, sources told The Times. The outlet reported that investigators had been trying to secure a search warrant against Giuliani for months but that the Trump Justice Department quashed their efforts.

The investigation into Giuliani, who serves as Trump’s personal lawyer, resumed in earnest last month, and the Justice Department lifted its objection to the warrant after Merrick Garland was confirmed as attorney general.
Prosecutors have been scrutinizing Giuliani’s activities in Ukraine since at least 2019 and are said to be examining if he broke foreign lobbying laws while working as former President Donald Trump’s personal lawyer. The FBI’s investigation also includes a counterintelligence aspect.
Two sources familiar with the investigation told The Times that investigators are looking into Giuliani’s role in the recall of former US ambassador to Ukraine Marie L. Yovanovitch, who was a foreign service officer for 33 years before being abruptly removed from her post in spring 2019.
This is the Obama/Biden/Garland DOJ – just plain corrupt.

The SDNY is run by Audry Strauss, a biased Democrat:
1619643949247.png
The SDNY was behind the arrests of four Americans who helped build portions of the Southern wall when the Democrats were blocking the funding for President Trump to build the wall. They sent 15 armed Postal Service Inspectors from New York to Florida to arrest war hero and triple amputee Brian Kolfage, forcing him to drag himself through the rain and pull himself into the inspectors’ car. They drove for hours and never considered obtaining a vehicle to provide for Kolfage’s disabilities.

1619644012950.png

The SDNY was also behind an indictment of former Trump Campaign Manager Paul Manafort:

1619644063205.png

For some time people have believed that the SDNY wanted to get Rudy’s electronic devices so they could steal his communications with President Trump that are protected under client-attorney privilege.
1619644120256.png

But the SDNY has all but ignored Hunter Biden’s crimes related to China – nothing will happen to Hunter and everyone knows it:

1619644172112.png

Some people see through this and see the corrupt clowns in our government are looking for a story to replace the Arizona audit story from making the headlines.
Guessing this means the Arizona vote fraud audit is over the target… https://t.co/J2DvroQ5aZ

The Democrats must be very scared of the results from the Arizona forensic audit going on today so they recruited the faithful SDNY to harass a top conservative and change the narrative away from the obvious 2020 Election fraud.

Rudy Giuliani's Manhattan Apartment Raided By DOJ; Electronic Devices Seized

WEDNESDAY, APR 28, 2021 - 12:36 PM

Federal investigators in Manhattan executed a search warrant today on former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani's Upper East Side apartment, according to the New York Times, whose three anonymous sources say is an escalation of a "criminal investigation into Mr. Giuliani's dealings in Ukraine."

According to the report, "Executing a search warrant is an extraordinary move for prosecutors to take against a lawyer, let alone a lawyer for a former president, and it marks a major turning point in the long-running investigation into Mr. Giuliani."

Among other things, Giuliani's electronic devices were reportedly seized as part of the search, according to one of the sources.
The feds are looking into whether Giuliani illegally lobbied the Trump administration in 2019 on behalf of prominent Ukrainians, who were simultaneously helping Giuliani uncover allegedly shady dealings by the Biden family while then Vice President Joe Biden was in charge of Ukraine policy for the Obama administration.

For months, the US Attorney's office in Manhattan and the FBI had sought a search warrant for Giuliani's phones - which senior political appointees in the Trump DOJ allegedly sought to block, according to the Times. Under new Attorney General Merrick Garland, the DOJ lifted its objection to the search.
While investigating Mr. Giuliani, prosecutors have examined, among other things, his potential business dealings in Ukraine and his role in pushing the Trump administration to oust the American ambassador to Ukraine, which was the subject of testimony at Mr. Trump’s first impeachment trial.
As he was pressuring Ukrainian officials to investigate the Bidens, Mr. Giuliani became fixated on removing the ambassador, Marie L. Yovanovitch, whom he saw as an obstacle to those efforts. At the urging of Mr. Giuliani and other Republicans, Mr. Trump ultimately removed Ms. Yovanovitch. -NY Times
Federal prosecutors are now looking at whether Giuliani was working for Ukrainian officials at the same time as he was serving as former President Trump's personal attorney - and whether Ukrainian officials or businesses wanted Yovanovitch to be removed for their own reasons, according to the Times anonymous sources.

Another Ukrainian official under the spotlight is Yuriy Lutsenko, one of the officials who assisted Giuliani and his associates in their investigation of the Bidens. Lutsenko allegedly paid Giuliani's firm hundreds of thousands of dollars in unrelated consulting business, which resulted in a draft retainer agreement which was never executed.

Giuliani has repeatedly said he turned down the deal, which would have involved his efforts to recover money that the Ukrainian government believes was stolen and stashed offshore.
* * *
For more on Giuliani's interview with Lutsenko and Shokin - we published the following in Nov. 2019 - which has been fully memory holed if one goes to search for it on Google.

* * *
A liberal watchdog group's attempt to nail Rudy Giuliani has backfired in spectacular fashion after their FOIA request resulted in the US State Department releasing detailed accusations of corruption against the Bidens - based on interviews with former Ukrainian officials who were in charge of the investigations.


Responding to a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit from the group American Oversight, the State Department on Friday night released almost 100 pages of records detailing efforts by Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani to investigate corruption.

While American Oversight's 'gotcha' is that Giuliani had "multiple contacts" with Mike Pompeo and others while investigating Ukraine corruption, they completely ignore interview notes containing detailed allegations by former Ukraine Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin - who Joe Biden had fired, as well as his successor, prosecutor general Yuriy Lutsenko - who "believes Mr. Viktor Shokin the former Prosecutor General is honest."

Viktor Shokin:
On a January 23, 2019 phone call between Shokin and Giuliani, Igor Fruman, Lev Parnas and George Boyle, Shokin said:

"He was appointed to the position of General Prosecutor of Ukraine from 2015 until April of 2016, when he was removed at the request of Mr. Joseph Biden the Vice President of the United States."

"He [Shokin] became involved in a case against Mr. Mykola Zlochevsky the former Minister of Ecology and Natural Resources of Ukraine. The case was opened as a result of Mr. Zlochevsky giving himself/company permits to drill for gas and oil in Ukraine. Mr. Zlochevsky is also the owner of Burisma Holdings."

"Mr. Shokin stated that there are documents that list five (5) criminal cases in which Mr. Zlochevesky is listed, with the main case being for issuing illegal gas exploration permits. The following complaints are in the criminal case.
  1. Mr. Zlochevsky was laundering money
  2. Obtained assets by corrupt acts bribery
  3. Mr. Zlochevsky removed approximately twenty three million US dollars out of Ukraine without permission
  4. While seated as the Minister he approved two addition entities to receive permits for gas exploration
  5. Mr. Zlochevsky was the owner of two secret companies that were part of Burisma Holdings and gave those companies permits which made it possible for him to profit while he was the sitting Minister.
"Mr Shokin further stated that there were several Burisma board appointments were made in 2014 as follows:

Devon Archer (left) with Joe and Hunter Biden

  1. Hunter Biden son of Vice President Joseph Biden
  2. Joseph Blade former CIA employee assigned to Anti-Terrorist Unit
  3. Alesksander Kwasnieski former President of Poland
  4. Devon Archer roomate to the Christopher Heinz the step-son of Mr. John Kerry United States Secretary of State
"Mr. Shokin stated that these appointments were made by Mr. Slochevsky in order to protect himself."

Shokin then details how in July 2015, "US Ambassador Geoffrey R. Pyatt told him that the investigation has to be handled with white gloves, which according to Mr. Shokin, that implied do nothing. On or about September 2015 Mr. Pyatt gave a speech in Odessa where he stated that the cases were not investigated correctly and that Mr. Shokin may be corrupt."

"Mr. Shokin further stated that on February of 2016 warrants were placed on the accounts of multiple people in Ukraine. There were requests for information on Hunter Biden to which nothing was received."

"It is believed that Hunter Biden receives a salary, commission plus one million dollars."

"President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko
[who Joe Biden threatened to withhold $1 billion in US loan guarantees] told Mr. Shokin not to investigate Burisma as it was not in the interest of Joe and/or Hunter Biden. Mr. Shokin was called into Mr. Poroshenko's office and told that the investigation into Burisma and the Managing Director where Hunter Biden is on the board, has caused Joe Biden to hold up one billion dollars in US aid to Ukraine.

"Mr. Shokin stated that on or around April of 2016 Mr. Petro Poroshenko called him and told him he had to be fired as the aid to the Ukraine was being withheld by Joe Biden. Mr. Biden told Mr. Poroshenko that he had evidence that Mr. Shokin was corrupt and needed to be fired. Mr. Shokin was dismissed in April of 2016 and the US aid was delivered within one and one half months."

"On a different point Mr. Shokin believes the current Ambassador Marie L. Yovanovitch denied his visa to travel to the US. Mr. Shokin stated that she is close to Mr. Biden. Mr. Shokin also stated that there were leaks by a person named Reshenko of the Ukrainian State Secret Service about the Manafort Black Book. Mr. Shokin stated that there is possible deceit in the Manafort Black Book."

Yuriy Lutsenko:
Lutsenko takes Shokin's interview one step further in a January 25 phone interview with Giuliani and associates - describing how Ukraine has two secretive units which are protected by a US Ambassador.

"Mr. Lutsenko went on to explain that there is a unit called Specialized Anticorruption Prosecutor's Office (SAP) which has under its purview National Anticorruption Bureau Ukraine (NABU) which investigates corruption cases that involved public figures from Mayors upward. He stated that the current US Ambassador protects SAP and NABU," adding "His office has absolutely no control over SAP or NABU and can't even ask what they are working on however they fall under his "control."

Of note, NABU was established in October 2014 "by Mr. George Kent who was the Deputy Chief to the Mission in Ukraine."
US Ambassador George Kent, who established NABU according to Lutsenko

Bidens and Burisma
Lutsenko "went on to say that he began looking at the same case Mr. Shokin was looking at (mentioned above) and he believes Hunter Biden receives millions of dollars in compensation from Burisma. He produced a document from Latvia that showed several million dollars that were distributed out of Burisma's account. The record showed two (2) companies and four (4) individuals receiving approximately sixteen million dollars in disbursements as follows:

Companies:
  1. Wirelogic Technology $14,665,982
  2. Digitex $1,900,000
Individuals:
  1. Alexsander Kwasnewski $1,150,000
  2. Alan Apter $302,887
  3. Devon Archer Amount not revealed by Latvia
  4. Hunter Biden Amount not revealed by Latvia
"Mr Lutsenko stated that there was also a payment of $900,000 to Rosemont Seneca Partners LLC for consulting fees. Hunter Biden is a partner in Rosemont Seneca Partners LLC along with Devon Archer and the dates of this transaction are approximately anywhere from January to December 2015. According to Mr. Lutsenko the $900,000 invoice was for services rendered for lobbying by Joe Biden."

Federal authorities search Rudy Giuliani’s New York apartment

The investigators reportedly confiscated Giuliani’s electronic devices.

By Just the News staff
Updated: April 28, 2021 - 2:26pm

Federal authorities in New York on Wednesday searched former city Mayor and President Trump's attorney's Upper West Side apartment, as part of a criminal probe into his work in Ukraine, according to multiple news reports.

The investigators confiscated Rudy Giuliani’s electronic devices as part of a search warrant, according to the New York Times, which cited sources.

Authorities are investigating whether Giuliani lobbied the Trump administration in 2019 illegally on behalf of Ukrainian officials and businessmen.

At the same time, those Ukrainian officials allegedly helped Giuliani search for dirt on Trump’s political rivals, including now President Biden.

The United States Attorney’s office in Manhattan and the F.B.I. have for months sought to secure a search warrant for Giuliani’s phones.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York has declined to comment on the apartment search.

Breaking — Feds execute search warrant at Rudy Giuliani’s apartment… Developing
Posted by Kane on April 28, 2021 12:47 pm

UPDATE

A source told NBC that FBI agents also in the morning executed a search warrant at the Washington-area home of the Republican lawyer Victoria Toensing, who is close to Giuliani.

Toensing — who is married to and law partners with former top federal prosecutor Joseph diGenova — represented Ukrainian oligarch Dmytro Firtash, who himself is the subject of a federal indictment.

Federal investigators have executed a search warrant on Rudy Giuliani’s Manhattan apartment as part of an investigation into the Giuliani’s dealings in Ukraine, the New York Times reported.

The Times reports that Giuliani’s electronic devices have been seized. The execution of a warrant, which must be approved by a judge, also signals that the investigation into Giuliani’s role in Ukraine is intensifying.

Trump administration officials had blocked warrants against Giuliani, but the Biden administration’s Department of Justice swiftly approved the ‘highly political’ move.

“If This Can Happen to the President’s Lawyer, It Can Happen to Anyone!” – Andrew Giuliani LASHES OUT at Biden DOJ following Raid on His Father’s Home and Office

By Jim Hoft
Published April 28, 2021 at 3:51pm

Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani is one of the most honorable politicians in America today.

On Tuesday the Biden administration’s Justice Department obtained a search warrant for Rudy Giuliani and used it to search his New York City apartment and office, seizing records and electronic devices.

This is payback time for Joe Biden.

It is well known that Rudy Giuliani exposed the Biden crime family and their illegal and unethical dealings with numerous foreign governments and regimes including Ukraine.


And it is well known that the Biden Crime Family pushed the Ukrainian government to fire the prosecutor investigating Joe Biden’s crooked and drug-addled son Hunter Biden.

Today the Biden DOJ bit back.

Department of Justice operatives raided Rudy Giuliani’s home and office in New York City.

This is like something you hear about in communist regimes or banana republics, not America.

Democrats, no doubt, cheered this news.

This afternoon Rudy Giuliani’s son Andrew Giuliani spoke to reporters about this unfathomable move by the deep state DOJ.

Andrew Giuliani: Enough is enough! The only piece of evidence that they did not take up there today was the only piece of incriminating evidence that is in there. And it does not belong to my father, it belongs to the current president’s son… All I will say is this, to all Americans out there our Justice Department should be independent of politics. Enough is enough, ladies and gentlemen. We cannot stand for this anymore. And again, if this can happen to the president’s lawyer, this can happen to any one of us.

Rudy said the corrupt Biden DOJ took everything but the computer hard drives from Hunter Biden’s laptop computer.


The Biden DOJ took everything but the evidence of criminal actions that were stored on Hunter Biden’s laptop!

This is a travesty.

Of course, the fake news mainstream media will NEVER report this. They’re in on it!

Via The New York Post.
Former Mayor Rudy Giuliani on Wednesday accused federal agents of ignoring copies of Hunter Biden’s computer hard drives when they raided his apartment — and blamed the investigation of him on “Trump Derangement Syndrome.”

In a statement released by his lawyer, Giuliani said the FBI “steadfastly declined” to take the hard drives when he “offered them on several occasions.”
“Keep in mind that the agents could not read the physical hard drives without plugging them in, but they took Mr. Giuliani’s word that the hard drives were copies of Hunter Biden’s hard drive and did not contain anything pertaining to Mr. Giuliani,” the statement said.
“Their reliance on Mr. Giuliani’s credibility tells you everything you need to know about this case."

UPDATE: Biden DOJ Raided Former Trump Attorney Victoria Toensing at Same Time as Giuliani

By Kristinn Taylor
Published April 28, 2021 at 5:29pm

The Biden Justice Department also raided former President Trump attorney Victoria Toensing Wednesday morning in conjunction with their raid on Rudy Giuliani, according to reports. Both raids purportedly involve alleged lobbying violations. Like Giuliani, Toensing and her husband, former U.S. Attorney Joe diGenova, worked on Trump’s 2020 election cases. The couple represented Ukrainian businessman Dmitri Firtash who is accused by the DOJ of bribery and racketeering. Giuliani, diGenova and Toensing also reportedly worked on gathering evidence of Joe and Hunter Biden’s corrupt dealings with Ukraine.

CNN’s Paula Reid reported, “CNN has learned warrants served this AM on Giuliani & another former Trump attorney, Victoria Toensing, both say they were related to a foreign lobbying investigation. Executing early AM search warrants on *lawyers* at their *homes* seems awfully aggressive for a *FARA* case.”

1619661722987.png

ABC News reporter James Gordon Meek reports the feds sought Toensing’s phone, “Feds also executed a search warrant at the home of Rudy colleague Victoria Toensing, requesting only one item — her cell phone, which she turned over, an informed source told me.”

1619661687906.png

Fox News’ Jake Gibson, “A well-places source says the FBI came to Victoria Toensing’s home this morning and asked for her phone and she gave it to them. Source also said the FBI did NOT search her home. Her law firm says she’s been informed she’s not a target of the investigation.”

1619661633375.png

Democrat impeachment lawyer Daniel Goldman weighed in, “This makes sense because, during the Ukraine impeachment investigation, we obtained draft retainer agreements between a Ukrainian official and Toensing and diGenova that Giuliani brokered.”

Giuliani’s Lawyer Responds to FBI Raid of Apartment, Seizure of Electronic Devices

April 28, 2021
by Kyle Becker


Written by Kyle Becker

After the FBI raided Rudy Giuliani’s apartment on Wednesday morning, the former New York City mayor and Trump attorney has responded through his attorney Robert Costello.

“Giuliani’s attorney Bob Costello says the raid ‘is totally unnecessary’ and the only reason for it is ‘bad publicity’ to “make him (Rudy) look like he’s some sort of criminal.” Fox News’ John Roberts tweeted, citing reporter Marta Dhanis.

In an interview with the Wall Street Journal, Costello also called the FBI’s raid “legal thuggery.” Costello also gave his understanding of the raid.

“Mr. Costello said authorities arrived at Mr. Giuliani’s apartment at 6 a.m. and seized his electronic devices,” the Wall Street Journal reported. “Mr. Costello said the search warrant describes the investigation as a probe into a possible violation of foreign lobbying rules. Mr. Costello said the warrant sought communications between Mr. Giuliani and individuals including John Solomon, a columnist who was in communication with Mr. Giuliani about his effort to push for investigations of Joe Biden in Ukraine.”

Giuliani’s lawyer also said that in recent years “he had offered to answer investigators’ questions as long as they agreed to say what area they were looking at ahead of time,” the Journal continued. “He said they declined the offer.”

“It’s like I’m talking to a wall,” he added.

The Wall Street Journal gives further insight into what the FBI was seeking out, and it is by all appearances retribution for investigating the president’s son Hunter Biden.

“The investigation is looking into possible violations of foreign lobbying rules, and the search warrant sought communications between Giuliani and others including conservative columnist John Solomon,” Costello said.

The New York Times earlier reported that the FBI had raided the former mayor’s apartment.

“Federal investigators in Manhattan executed a search warrant on Wednesday at the Upper East Side apartment of Rudolph W. Giuliani, the former New York City mayor who became President Donald J. Trump’s personal lawyer, stepping up a criminal investigation into Mr. Giuliani’s dealings in Ukraine, three people with knowledge of the matter said,” the Times reported.

“One of the people said the investigators had seized Mr. Giuliani’s electronic devices,” the Times added. The raid is related to Giuliani’s investigation to “unearth damaging information about Mr. Biden and his son Hunter,” the report noted. The Associated Press confirmed the report.

Federal investigators executed a search warrant Wednesday morning at the New York City apartment of Rudy Giuliani, his lawyer said, an escalation of a yearslong investigation by Manhattan federal prosecutors into the former mayor.

Mr. Giuliani, who became President Trump’s personal lawyer, has been under investigation since at least 2019 by the Manhattan U.S. attorney’s office for his business dealings in Ukraine, for possible violation of federal lobbying laws.

The search warrant execution was first reported by the New York Times and was confirmed by Mr. Giuliani’s lawyer, Robert Costello.
Mr. Costello said authorities, who arrived at Mr. Giuliani’s apartment at 6 a.m., seized Mr. Giuliani’s electronic devices. He said the search warrant describes the investigation as an investigation into a possible violation of foreign lobbying rules. Mr. Costello said the warrant sought communications between Mr. Giuliani and individuals including John Solomon, a columnist who was in communication with Mr. Giuliani about his effort to push for investigations of Joe Biden in Ukraine.

A spokesman for the Manhattan U.S. attorney’s office declined to comment. A spokeswoman for the Federal Bureau of Investigation couldn’t immediately be reached for comment.

Mr. Costello in an interview called the move “legal thuggery.” He said that in recent years he had offered to answer investigators’ questions as long as they agreed to say what area they were looking at ahead of time. He said they declined the offer. “It’s like I’m talking to a wall,” he said.

[COMMENT: I am getting the picture that the Biden/Harris Admin is politically re-weaponizing government agencies such as the FBI; DOJ; NSA; Military; IRS; Post Office; TSA; DHS and likely the EPA. Just like Obama did, only aggressive, open and notorious.]

Faithful Steed
One considers that the FBI didn't take the Hunter Biden hard drives from hell because to do so would open the possibility of disclosure of those hard drives as part of the judicial process.

Disclosure in this case could even be an admission by the FBI of the existence of the hard drives - which opens the question of why take evidence that you already have? And why has not more been done with what you have?

As it is the FBI is probably looking only for "brownie points" with Biden Administration minions. As Rudy says "I offered up information if the FBI would only tell me what they wanted" and "the evidence on those hard drives they took clears the President and me."

And Rudy's comment about Client-Lawyer Confidence being violated - this normally not done and very unusual - but possible. The Writ has to specify EXACTLY what is to be remanded - a thought Rudy's earlier request was consistent with - and it's connection to a possible indictment of the lawyer.

The Michael Cohen case was one of these. As lawyer to Trump, Cohen was knee deep in campaign finance violations, and did perjure himself to Congress. He attempted to strike a deal with Federal Investigators in return for favor in sentencing, but the Mueller Investigation in 50 plus hours of secret testimony by Cohen apparently found nothing of value in his offer.

As it is, with Rudy the FBI is "Fishing for Trump." Anything they find of value for this reason should be "disallowed" as improperly obtained.

100 Days Into Biden’s Presidency, Hunter Still Owns Stake In Chinese Private Equity Firm, Business Records Show

ANDREW KERRINVESTIGATIVE REPORTER
April 29, 20215:31 PM ET

Hunter Biden continues to hold a minority stake in a Chinese private equity firm 100 days into President Joe Biden’s term, business records show.

Hunter Biden holds a 10% equity stake in BHR Partners through his company, Skaneateles LLC, according to Qixinbao and Baidu, two independent services that provide business records on Chinese corporations based on China’s National Credit Information Publicity System.

Joe Biden promised in October 2019 that if elected president, nobody in his family would have any business relationship with any foreign corporation or country.

“No one in my family will have an office in the White House, will sit in on meetings as if they are a cabinet member, will, in fact, have any business relationship with anyone that relates to a foreign corporation or a foreign country,” Joe Biden told reporters in Iowa. “Period. Period. End of story.”

BHR is co-owned by the Chinese state-controlled Bank of China, the business records show, and manages the equivalent of $2.1 billion in assets, according to its website. Hunter Biden acquired his 10% stake in the firm with a $420,000 investment in October 2017, according to a statement released by his lawyer in October 2019.

BHR’s business file was last updated on July 28, 2020, the records show.
White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said in early February that Hunter Biden was in the process of divesting his ownership stake in the equity firm.

“He has been working to unwind his investment but I would certainly point you — he’s a private citizen — I would point you to him or his lawyers on the outside,” Psaki said.

It’s unclear if Hunter Biden expects to receive a return on his investment in the company after his divestment is complete.

Hunter Biden’s lawyer, George Mesires, and BHR have not returned requests for comment.

Mesires said in his October 2019 statement that Hunter Biden had not received any return on his investment in BHR.

Hunter Biden is the sole beneficial owner of Skaneateles LLC, the business entity that holds his 10% stake in BHR, according to Washington D.C. business records.

However, emails located on a copy of Hunter Biden’s alleged laptop show that he was told on multiple occasions by his business partner Eric Schwerin that he could expect to receive significant payments from BHR beginning in 2019, the Daily Caller News Foundation previously reported.

“BHR is due to have a significant distribution in 2019 because of the CATL exit,” Schwerin told Hunter Biden in a November 2018 email.

In another email the following month Schwerin told Hunter Biden that he can expect BHR to generate income for him “over the next couple of years.”

Joe Biden altered his promise in regards to his family’s foreign business dealings following his election victory, saying in December that nobody in his family will “be involved in any business, any enterprise, that is conflicted with or appears to be in conflict, with the appropriate distance from, the presidency and government.”

The White House did not return a request for comment.

VIDEO: Criminal FBI-DOJ Began Secretly Spying on Rudy Giuliani on May 1, 2018 — THE DAY HE BECAME TRUMP’S ATTORNEY

By Jim Hoft
Published May 5, 2021 at 1:30pm

There is no law and order in America today.

Only corrupt Marxists and totalitarians punishing anyone who stands in their way.

The criminals at the DOJ-FBI started spying on American patriot Rudy Giuliani on May 2, 2018. That was THE SAME DAY he agreed to become President Trump’s attorney in the Russia Hoax scandal.

This should be one of the top stories of the year! Instead, it’s being totally ignored by the Fake News media.

Rudy dropped this bomb today on the Bannon War Room.

Rumble video on website 2:47 min

Via The War Room:
Rudy Giuliani revealed the federal government secured a covert warrant to spy on him the exact same day he became President Donald Trump’s attorney.
Giuliani told War Room, Wednesday, the secret warrant was secured on May 1, 2018 — meaning the government had access to the President’s most personal and sacrosanct communications with his lawyer during both sham impeachments.

“I think we’ve got a heck of an argument to dismiss,” Giuliani said, in regards to the Biden regime’s political and illegal raid on his apartment.

“And with regard to the much worse surveillance and the taking of my iCloud account from the first day that I became Donald Trump’s lawyer,” he said.
“They didn’t even make any bones about it,” Giuliani said. “They had no interest in me before. It begins May 1, 2018. That’s when it was first in the newspapers. Immediately they go get my stuff, at least retroactively, they examine the entire attorney client relationship for a year and a half. This is unheard of.”

Jack Maxey Unearths More Emails Showing Biden Crime Family Working With Chinese Communists…Now This Family Controls US Government

by CD Media StaffMay 6, 2021415361

President Biden's Son Admits He's Working For The Chinese Communist party


Here is Hunter arguing with ChiComs about why he needs $ 10 million a year not $ 5million. See how this works when you are above the law?



Here is a draft of a letter to his “partner” at CEFC, the ChiCom energy co.
I think it is pretty clear that Hunter and Uncle Jim know they are working for the COMMUNISTS. Hey, FBI is this a FARA violation? (sigh)



Hunter, Archer and James Bulger (yes that Bulger) never invested in the BHR-PE fund, they just got hidden “loans” from the GP which is to say the Communist Party of china. I would bet any dollar they did not inform the LP’s, and as you can see they even tried to hide from Chinese regulators let alone FBI, SEC, FINRA or the Treasury. THAT IS FRAUD – a crime.



Happy to meet H and the family . . .



Nothing to see here – but thank the Biden family . . . .



Look, Hunter was even involved in destroying the US rolling stock industry for benefit of communist Chinese. Not a deal or betrayal they would not engage in. You union guys in MA know what I’m talking about . . .

BREAKING: Pervert Hunter Biden Was Involved with Chinese Spy Chief!

Your dog tag necklace is waiting for you, Hunter!

Just when you thought Hunter Biden couldn’t get any worse, we now know from secret recordings now made public, that Hunter was working with the spy chief of China and getting VERY flirty with his younger Chinese co-worker, who sent him flirty texts. When are we going to stand up and DEMAND that the Biden’s be held accountable for their crimes?

When will we demand that Hunter Biden be dealt with? Our Constitution and the rule of law are under attack – by the very people who are supposed to be standing for it.

This now breaking from the Daily Mail:

Hunter Biden’s emails reveal his close relationship with the Chinese-American secretary who worked for him when he went into business with the man he called the ‘spy chief of China.’

The mysterious young assistant wrote the president’s son flirty messages, sent him opposition research for Joe’s White House run and encouraged him to draw funds from the company’s accounts when the joint venture collapsed and even ended up with Hunter’s military dog tags.

In 2017 Hunter went into business with Patrick Ho, secretary general of Chinese oil giant CEFC.

Hunter described Ho in a call recording on his abandoned laptop as the ‘spy chief of China’, and the Chinese businessman was later surveilled by US law enforcement as a foreign intelligence threat before he was convicted of bribery in 2018.

After launching his multi-million-dollar joint venture with CEFC, Hunter was assigned a 29-year-old Chinese-American assistant, JiaQi Bao, who quickly struck up a close and intriguing relationship with her Biden boss.


The Mail also reports:

Hunter and Joe Biden’s brother Jim partnered with CEFC in 2017, in a deal that was meant to generate billions of dollars and create a string of oil and gas projects in the Middle East and Europe.

But the joint venture collapsed the following year when CEFC’s secretary general Patrick Ho was arrested and later convicted of bribery in a US federal prosecution.

Ho was suspected of working with the Chinese intelligence services, and had been monitored by federal law enforcement under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act, court documents revealed.

In January Gateway Pundit Reported on How China was Colluding with Bidens and Sharing Info on How to Defeat Donald Trump — This Weekend The Daily Mail and Breitbart Echo Those Reports

By Joe Hoft
Published May 9, 2021 at 8:00am

On January 5th we first reported on Hunter Biden’s relationship with a Chinese secretary for the CEO of a large Chinese company. We also reported on how she acted as a “cutout” between overseas Chinese officials and the Bidens.

1620589994522.png

1620589933909.png

We first reported on JiaQi Bao in early January where we tied not only her relationship with Hunter Biden but also the messages she sent Hunter from China. As we reported:
Following traditional honeypot tactics, JiaQi was used to sweeten Hunter’s already saccharin-laced business engagement with CEFC. She kept an eye on Hunter from her base in NYC and acted as a cutout between the overseas Chinese officials and the Bidens.
We also reported in January how China was providing information to the Bidens on how to defeat President Trump in the 2020 election.

1620589874282.png

This information was all included on Hunter Biden’s laptop that he left at a computer repair shop in Delaware.

On Friday, the Daily Mail reported the same story on JiaQi Bao and then Brietbart reported on the story based on Daily Mail’s piece.

1620589824595.png
These are all shocking reports of the same story – that China used a honeypot to tie the Bidens with China. Oh, and he left his brother Beau’s dog tags at her place and she returned them.

Maybe other entities will report on Hunter’s pimp getting a sweet deal in court as well?

"Keep As Much Money As You Can": Hunter Biden Disclosures Offer New Details On His Chinese Financial Dealings And Associations

SUNDAY, MAY 09, 2021 - 01:15 PM
Authored by Jonathan Turley,

There are new disclosures from Hunter Biden’s laptop that offer an added perspective on his dealings with Chinese figures, including Patrick Ho, secretary general of Chinese oil giant CEFC, who was later indicted and has been connected with Chinese intelligence. The emails and pictures relate to the young Chinese assistant supplied to Hunter who makes revealing statements about the fluid expense accounts and level of support given Hunter by the Chinese. I have read through the new messages and I am not clear about the relationship with the young aide who tells him that she still has his dog tags in her New York apartment. However, the new emails include details on how Biden was paid and the fluidity of the accounts established by the Chinese.



There is much on the Internet suggesting that the 29-year-old Chinese-American assistant, JiaQi Bao, was an effort by Chinese intelligence to create a sexual relationship that could be used to influence Hunter and ultimately his father — much like the scandal involving Rep. Eric Swalwell’s intimate relationship with an alleged Chinese spy. It is not clear that Biden had any intimate relationship with Bao.

The first of the emails from Bao appear to be dated shortly before the arrest of Ho in November 2017 and after the business partners were stepping back from the company and associations including the one with Bao. It is not clear if Biden was told at that point that he needed to wall off Bao and others connected to the company, but he does not appear to respond to the emails.

The emails take on a certain stalking quality as Bao repeatedly seeks to resume the association by stressing that she wants to be his friend. She also repeatedly references some misunderstanding that he might have about her. (At one point, she tells Biden that she does not want him to view her as “a messed up bad girl.”). She also states in later emails that she tried to reach out to Hunter on various communication systems or platforms to no avail. She says that she wants to have a relationship as a friend, but it appears that Hunter was not responding to those entreaties.


My greater interest remains in the fluidity of Hunter’s financial dealings, the references to mass transfers to him or his uncle, and the role of Ho who American intelligence has long tied to the Chinese government and intelligence services. In the emails, Bao offers possible talking points in dealing with the election and opposing research on Trump including Trump’s alleged links to a Chinese-owned Florida “prostitution parlor,” an ironic attack point given the photos of Hunter with alleged Chinese prostitutes. (Biden admits in this book that apart from his intimate relationship with his late brother’s widow, Hallie. the “other women I’d been with during rampages since my divorce were hardly the dating type.”).'

Bao’s emails discuss Chinese accounts that appear to have cash available to Biden to use at his discretion. One section is titled “Keep As Much Money As You Can” and encourages Biden to drain accounts that are just sitting their with cash, including ramping up his expenses. The references indicate the easy availability of the money from the Chinese during a period when Hunter admits to be being continually drunk and engaged in sexual and narcotic excesses.




Again, in fairness to Hunter Biden, there is no response from him and the emails come across as a former assistant trying to reestablish a relationship and regain his confidence. However, it gives an insight into these accounts and how Biden could pull expenses from the company.

The enterprise itself seemed to quickly collapse but Biden received a huge amount of money without an evidence of substantial work on his part. Indeed, Biden admits that he was still a crack addict during this period and the photos show him passed out and doing drugs as well as sexual trysts with various women, including possible prostitutes. Gao herself expresses concern over Hunter’s abuse of alcohol: “One of my New Year’s Wishes is that you could drink less… I will do anything and everything to make you happy so that alcoholic beverages’ widely believed mythical function as a stress reliever won’t be an excuse for indulgence!”

Hunter recently admitted that during this period he was “[d]rinking a quart of vodka a day by yourself in a room is absolutely, completely debilitating” as well as “smoking crack around the clock.” (Indeed, the dog tags in Bao’s apartment were from Biden’s short stint in the Navy before being discharged for drug use). However, the Chinese wanted to pay him millions as their business adviser and assigned Bao as his assistant.

This brings us back to Ho and the ongoing investigation of Hunter Biden. Biden has insisted that the investigation is solely focused on tax issues and he will be cleared. That may be true. However, we know that these transactions were flagged by federal authorities including claims over possible money laundering. As an attorney, I would be very concerned if my client was transferring such large amounts of money from these accounts. The items discussed by Goa include her listing of Hunter’s expenses as including payment to the Yale Club in May 2018 totaling $16,578.69. It is not clear which account that money came from. However, she notes that she is “not sure if the accounting department will let this go.”



There is a legitimate question of why a company closely connected to the Chinese government and possible Chinese intelligence would be giving millions to Hunter and his uncle. Hunter’s laptop shows that he transferred about $1.4 million of funds from his company Owasco to his uncle’s consulting firm between 2017 and 2018.

Hunter and Joe Biden’s brother Jim partnered with CEFC in 2017 but the enterprise collapsed the following year when Ho was arrested and later convicted of bribery in a US federal prosecution.

The continued lack of interest in those connections by most of the media is astonishing and part of a continued blackout of virtually any scandals and possible crimes connected to Hunter. I feel the same way about the continued investigation of Rudy Giuliani’s efforts in the Ukraine. There is a legitimate media interest in whether laws were broken or whether Trump associates lied about these efforts. My problem is that the media has overwhelming and continuing interest in one (Giuliani) and little interest in the other (Biden). Both raise serious questions that should be fully investigated and disclosed for the public.

Giuliani wants to dispute 'legality' of DOJ investigation before court appoints special master

Federal investigators seized electronic devices from Giuliani's New York City apartment last month

Rudy Giuliani claims media wants to 'destroy his credibility' Video on website 8:30 min

Former NYC mayor tells 'Hannity' he's been 'persecuted' since he uncovered Hunter Biden hard drive

Rudy Giuliani and his legal team are looking to dispute the "constitutionality and legality" of the government's "conduct" in its investigation into the former New York City mayor and personal attorney of former President Donald Trump before the court appoints a special master in the case.

In a letter unsealed Monday, sent last week to U.S. District Judge for the Southern District of New York Paul Oetken, Giuliani and his legal team said the conduct of federal investigators must first be reviewed and "resolved" before the appointment of a special master.

RUDY GIULIANI SLAMS RAID ON APARTMENT AS ‘OUT OF CONTROL,’ SAYS FEDS TRYING TO ‘FRAME’ HIM

"The validity of the 2019 covert warrant, and the handling of the information obtained by the prosecutor are serious questions that must be resolved before any further damage is done," they wrote.

Federal investigators seized electronic devices from Giuliani's New York City apartment last month after executing a search warrant as part of a federal probe into whether he violated the law by lobbying the Trump administration on behalf of Ukrainian officials in 2019.

The warrant was based on suspicion that Giuliani violated the Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA) in lobbying on behalf of Ukraine. FARA requires individuals to notify the State Department if they are acting as a foreign agent.

Giuliani also told Fox News the FBI previously obtained a covert warrant to search his iCloud records from May 1, 2018, to Nov. 4, 2019 — May 1 being the same day he began representing Trump amid the investigation into whether members of the Trump campaign colluded with Russia to influence the 2016 election.

Federal prosecutors have asked the judge to appoint a special master to review the material seized by the FBI and to ensure investigators are not able to see records protected by attorney-client privilege.

"The validity of the 2019 covert warrant, and the handling of the information obtained by the prosecutor are serious questions that must be resolved before any further damage is done," Giuliani's team wrote to Oetken. "Moreover, the fruits of the 2019 search were certainly used in some part to secure the 2021 largely duplicative search warrant and subsequent seizures."

"It is for those reasons that it is premature to consider a special master before these critical issues are resolved," they argued, further asking the court to rule on their filing "before making its decision on the appointment of a special master."

FEDS RAID RUDY GIULIANI APARTMENT IN UKRAINE INVESTIGATION
Giuliani has denied the allegations against him, telling Fox News "there is absolutely no one" he would have been representing that could be construed as a violation of FARA.

Giuliani told Fox News that because of his work as a personal attorney for Trump, he decided "the safest thing to do" was to refer any Ukrainian clients to Victoria Toensing.

The FBI also visited Toensing, a lawyer close to Giuliani. A well-placed source familiar with the situation said Toensing turned over a phone to the FBI but agents did not search her home.
The source also told Fox News that Toensing was informed she "is not the target of the investigation."

Toensing’s attorneys also penned a letter to the court last week, demanding the court order prosecutors to return Toensing’s cellphone and data so that she can review it herself before turning it over to a special master.

Toensing’s team, however, does not oppose the appointment of a special master but wants it to be "from the list of candidates proposed by the parties or other suitable candidates identified by the Court to oversee the process and resolve any disputes that may arise."

Hunter Biden's corrupt deal-planning spanned the globe, investigation reveals

Active in Saudi Arabia, Greece, Romania, Mexico, Oman, West Indies

Hunter Biden's business dealings in Ukraine and China have been well-reported. Ukraine was where he landed a deal paying him tens of thousands of dollars a month just to sit on the board of a gas company under investigation for corruption. China was where he was working to set up a variety of operations, according to documents that have been revealed about his deals.

But he also had his fingers in pies in Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates, Ivory Coast, Oman, West Indies, Qatar, Taiwan, Colombia, Zimbabwe, Greece, Romania and Mexico, a new investigation by Daily Wire has revealed.

His dealings remain newsworthy because of what was uncovered after the 2020 presidential election, narrowly won by his father, Joe Biden.

A post-election survey found more than one-third of voters who chose Joe Biden were not aware of the evidence linking the former vice president to corrupt financial dealings with China through his son Hunter. Had they known, according to the survey commissioned by the Media Research Center, President Trump would have won at least 289 Electoral College votes.

The Daily Wire said it reviewed emails about Hunter Biden's business dealings that involved dozens of foreign countries, "often corrupt backwaters," where he often invoked "official channels like ambassadors."

Hunter Biden's operations already have proven scandalous for his father, who, while vice president for Barack Obama, openly boasted of threatening to withhold $1 billion in U.S. aid if Ukraine's president did not fire the country's top prosecutor, Victor Shokin, who at the time was investigating Burisma, the company employing Hunter Biden, for corruption.

A French website reported Shokin later filed a criminal complaint naming Joe Biden and accusing him of committing a "criminal offense" in his campaign to get Shokin fired.

The Daily Wire report explained it was through Hunter Biden's Rosemont Seneca company that he reached around the globe.

For instance, Joe Biden's brother Jim wrote to Hunter about the chance for profit by being a middleman in an "oil deal" with Carlos Slim, the richest man in Mexico.

Jim Biden had written, "Have a very real deal with Pemex (Carlos slim) need financing literally for a few days to a week. Have the seller (refinery /slims) and buyer major being delivered from pipeline in ( h/ USA) Nothing is simple but this comes very close. As always the devil is in the detail! Any interest on the long skirts part?… Hang in there hunt !! You can and will hold it together. I’m very proud of you and have the greatest respect, you are a great, sweet and incredibly strong man. I know you pal!!!"

The connections go further, too, with the emails revealing Hunter Biden told Mexican billionaire Miguel Aleman Magnani that he had set up a meeting between "Carlos" and Magnani's father.

The report detailed that Hunter allowed the Biden name to be used in a bid to buy a Greek railroad. The Daily Wire said David C. Wittig, a Wall Street banker, told Hunter, "a call from the ambassador in Athens will go along (sic) way in getting us this deal. Give this some thought."

After being asked about having his name used, Hunter Biden said, "I have no objection and I am in fact comfortable with you using my name in connection with this project. Obviously we have many details to iron out before we finalize any proposal, but I am very interested participating in the project."

The Daily Wire said Hunter had been informed of "potential gold mine opportunities in Zimbabwe" and Hunter asked for a telephone call, and forwarded the details to his uncle, Jim.

"One email appeared to mention Taiwan, the subject of a long-running dispute with China, to an associate while he was in China. Jim Bulger, a business partner of Hunter's, appeared to assume the Chinese Communist Party might intercept the traffic," the Daily Wire revealed.

"We cannot mention Taiwan in emails to Michael he is in Beijing for Gods sake… Please get him to not discuss our business with any Taiwanese person at all," Bulger wrote.

Hunter also once got a message that the Qatari ambassador "called to speak with you," and later was told by a partner of a plan to link the Arab country with U.S. labor unions.

Then a onetime Teamsters lobbyist told Hunter that the Saudis "are going to invest $400 BILLION in nuclear and clean energy."

"Granted its (sic) going to be done in their country but there will be a lot of opportunity for American Companies. Should talk about this," he wrote.

Several discussions included Joe Biden. For example, regarding a deal in the West Indies, Sean Conlon told Hunter, "We need to get these guys to an event or something where they get to just formally meet your Dad . For follow on they can talk to Chief of Staff . Let me know how soon we can do that. V brief. If Nagi gets that done we get more bonds to move. Regards your hard working partner in Positano! Sean."

Hunter's angry response was: "“WTF is he talking about. Mtg with JRB chief of staff???? Tell him I’ll do the mtg."

A DailyMail.com recently also took a look at Hunter Biden's emails and emphasized "flirty messages" from Hunter Biden's Chinese-American secretary that were discovered on the laptop of the president's son.

And it certainly appears that the 29-year-old woman may be a "honey pot" of the kind planted by the Chinese Communist Party to draw in Rep. Eric Swalwell, D-Calif.

But legal scholar Jonathan Turley, who weighs in regularly on the daily news on his website, said that of greater interest to him is the mention in the newly reported messages of mass transfers of money to Hunter Biden and his uncle, Jim Biden.

In addition, Turley spotlighted the role of Patrick Ho, secretary general of Chinese oil giant CEFC, who was later indicted and has been connected with Chinese intelligence.

A former Hunter Biden business partner in the CEFC deal, Tony Bobulinski, has claimed he met twice with Joe Biden to discuss the firm, which has ties to the Communist Party, and "what I was doing with his family's name." Bobulinski said it was clear that the former vice president was in charge of the family business enterprise trading off his status.

Turley noted that the young Chinese assistant supplied to Hunter, JiaQi Bao, made revealing statements about the fluid expense accounts and level of support given Hunter by the Chinese.

Chinese intelligence may have planted the woman to create a sexual relationship that could be used to influence Hunter and ultimately his father, Turley said, much like the scandal involving Rep. Eric Swalwell’s intimate relationship with an alleged Chinese spy.

It's not clear that Biden had an intimate relationship with Bao, but her messages discuss Chinese accounts that appeared to have cash available to Biden to use at his discretion.

One section of a message to Hunter Biden, titled "Keep As Much Money As You Can," urges him to drain cash accounts, including from a joint corporate vehicle with CEFC called Hudson West.

Hunter’s World: Biden Son Had Tentacles In Dark Corners Of the World Far Beyond China, Ukraine

By Luke Rosiak
•May 18, 2021 DailyWire.com


Hunter Biden and his business partners were involved in discussions about possible deals in dozens of foreign countries, often corrupt backwaters, at times invoking official channels like ambassadors, emails reviewed by The Daily Wire show.

While most attention has focused on Ukraine, where a gas company paid the now-president’s son tens of thousands of dollars a month while he was in deep crack addiction, and China, Hunter and his partners at a consultancy called Rosemont Seneca were eager to do business in a vast array of other places.

The map above highlights the countries where deals were discussed or executed, according to a Daily Wire review of emails obtained from the laptop Hunter Biden reportedly left at a repair shop in Delaware and never paid for or picked up. Below is a sample of some of those dealings.

Mexico
In 2015, Joe Biden’s brother Jim wrote to Hunter about the prospect of a payout for serving as a middleman in an “oil deal” with Carlos Slim, Mexico’s richest man:
Have a very real deal with Pemex (Carlos slim) need financing literally for a few days to a week. Have the seller (refinery /slims) and buyer major being delivered from pipeline in ( h/ USA) Nothing is simple but this comes very close. As always the devil is in the detail! Any interest on the long skirts part?… Hang in there hunt !! You can and will hold it together. I’m very proud of you and have the greatest respect, you are a great, sweet and incredibly strong man. I know you pal!!!
In February 2016, Hunter wrote to Miguel Aleman Magnani, a Mexican billionaire and son of a former Mexican governor, that he had set up a meeting for “Carlos” and Aleman Magnani’s father:
I haven’t heard from you since I got you a mtg for Carlos and your Dad. We have been talking about business deals and partnerships for 7 years. And I really appreciate you letting me stay at your resort villa…but I have brought every single person you have ever asked me to bring to the F’ing WHite House and the Vice President’s house and the inauguration and then you go completely silent.
A photo shows Joe Biden meeting in the White House with Aleman Magnani, his father, and Hunter in 2014.

Slim also owned TracFone Wireless, in 2015 the largest corporate beneficiary of the fraud-ridden federal benefits program popularly known as “Obamaphones.” The U.S. government paid Slim’s company $9 per phone line for a service that it sold to the public for $7.

Greece / Romania
In 2014, Hunter permitted an American ex-con and Romanians to use the Biden name to add weight to a bid to buy a Greek railroad.

David C. Wittig wrote Hunter in December 2014: “I met with Yiorgos Nikitiades, the ex-Minister of Tourism… Yiorgos’s view is that a call from the Ambassador in Athens will go along way in getting us this deal. Give this some thought.”

The prospective buyer was a partnership that including Romanians. Later that month, Wittig added: “Hunter, The Romanians are rightfully asking that you do not object to having you name appear in the letter (I sent to you yesterday) that informally discusses the consortium.”

Hunter replied, “I have no objection and I am in fact comfortable with you using my name in connection with this project. Obviously we have many details to iron out before we finalize any proposal, but I am very interested participating in the project. ”

In February 2015, Wittig wrote Hunter: “I met with the bankers for the government on Monday of this week. Everything is moving forward, although we still have not ironed out the structure … hence the trip to Romania. We should have a good idea how things look on Monday. You might start thinking about a trip in March.”

Wittig was a Wall Street banker who posed for the cover of Fortune magazine holding a cigar in 1986 and became head of a Kansas utility firm in 1995. In Kansas, he bought a $230,000 Ferrari and allegedly used a corporate airplane for family vacations, spent $6 million renovating the mansion where he lived, believing the company would cover the cost, and spent $6.5 million upgrading his executive suite while the company laid off hundreds of workers.

In 2005, Wittig was convicted on 39 counts of conspiracy, wire fraud, money laundering, and circumventing internal controls. In 2007, the convictions were overturned, and hours after a new, Barack Obama-appointed U.S. attorney was sworn in in 2010, the prosecutor’s office announced it would not seek to retry him, citing a recent Supreme Court ruling affecting white-collar crime statutes.

Wittig ultimately received a $36 million settlement from the utility company and moved to Greece, where he held a stake in a company called Euroconsultants.

He also served time for a separate fraud case for which he was convicted in 2004.

In 2015, Hunter was working on a “matter related to Romania” for a client. “Two approaches that I think would be most effective are one, visiting with the Romanian Ambassador to the U.S. and two, reaching out to our State Dept. on an information only basis,” he wrote.

Zimbabwe
In 2018, a man named Bill McManus wrote to Hunter “regarding potential gold mine opportunities in Zimbabwe. The long and short of it is a long time friend’s uncle has been mining for gold in Zimbabwe” and believes, with investments, he could assemble claims of “up to 2 million ounces of gold.”

Additionally, though the government required state ownership of diamond mines, “we have a friend who has the right to desilt 160 miles of the Odzi river… This is interesting because the primary purpose is to desilt the river. Thus, apparently this is not technically a diamond mine that requires any type of government ownership. The gentleman has indicated he would like to sell or create a jv as he is struggling with access to capital.”

Hunter asked to talk on the phone and forwarded information about it to Joe Biden’s brother, Jim.

Taiwan / Colombia
Hunter’s associates were seemingly so eager to do business with any foreign interest they came across that they sometimes stepped on geopolitical landmines.

One email appeared to mention Taiwan, the subject of a long-running dispute with China, to an associate while he was in China. Jim Bulger, a business partner of Hunter’s, appeared to assume the Chinese Communist Party might intercept the traffic.

“We cannot mention Taiwan in emails to Michael he is in Beijing for Gods sake… Please get him to not discuss our business with any Taiwanese person at all,” Bulger wrote.

Discussing Colombia, an associate wrote in November 2011: “Just to let you know a friend of mine Gustavo Petro won the elections in Bogota and this could be very important for our business there.”

Hunter replied: “Also- Petro is the guy that kidnapped the Aunt of the woman we met with two nights ago.”

Qatar
In April 2014, Hunter’s assistant emailed that the “Qatari Ambassador called to speak with you.”

The next month, his partner Eric Schwerin emailed Hunter to muse about the Qatar Investment Authority (QIA). He wasn’t sure what service they could provide it, but he thought there must be a way to make money. He proposed teaming up the Arab country, where 95% of the population lives in indentured servitude, with U.S. labor unions.

“What about a QIA, Mitsubishi, Western Conference of Teamsters US Infrastructure fund. In general if QIA is looking for opportunities in this sector we could find it for them,” he wrote.

Workers toiling to build Qatar’s World Cup stadium reportedly worked 18-hour days for $6 a day in temperatures of up to 118 degrees, and foreign workers’ passports were allegedly confiscated so they could not leave.

Qatar’s labor abuses brought condemnation from the International Trade Union Confederation, which predicted 4,000 workers could die by the time the 2022 World Cup begins.

Saudi Arabia
In February 2011, Chuck Harple, the onetime Teamsters lobbyist, wrote to discuss possible billions in Saudi Arabia, and apparently tried to involve Joe Biden:
Hunter and Eric: Don’t know if you have been following the Saudi’s, but they met with the French and stated that they are going to invest $400 BILLION in nuclear and clean energy. Granted its going to be done in their country but there will be a lot of opportunity for American Companies. Should talk about this.
Also, Dr. Yumani, chairman of the King Abdullah City for Nuclear and Renewable Energy, will be in DC March 5-10. Shaw is We are hosting a dinner on Sunday March 6 maybe a drop by my favorite elected official in the world?
United Arab Emirates
In 2011, Hunter wrote, “Did you know… That the GDP of UAE is only slightly larger than the state of Alabama? … Makes you wonder why we’d spend so much time chasing that.”

Schwerin replied, “if Alabama were sitting on top of 10% of the world’s oil reserves maybe we’d care more about them.”

Ivory Coast
In May 2016, John Nevergole, the CEO of the ABD Group, a Philadelphia-based firm that invests in Africa and in which Schwerin holds a role, wrote to Hunter that “the Prime Minister [of the Ivory Coast] sent us as a follow up from the meeting the other week” and discussing a project with the foreign government.

He translated the letter: “The Prime Minister and the Ivorian delegation were happy to meet us in DC and exchange on investment opportunities in Cote d’Ivoire… In conclusion of our exchange they have noted that our group is engaged in 2 projects in Cote d’Ivoire… He thanks us again for our interest in Cote d’Ivoire and hopes to develop a good partnership between our company and the government.”

In September 2011, Nevergole wrote: “Hunter, Hope the trip to Kenya went well. Just as a heads up, one potential short-term opportunity that will be brought up in the meeting today is for a $700 million project that OAS just submitted for in Panama.” As of 2017, Rosemont Seneca held equity in Nevergole projects, according to the emails.

Oman
In 2011, Hunter requested a meeting with the ambassador from Oman to the U.S., Her Excellency Hunaina Sultan Al Mughairy, to “get your advice on some projects that our firm is involved in and in particular, our affiliated investment firm, Rosemont Realty.”

In 2017, Jim Biden, Hunter, and others were included in an email chain started by James Gilliar about “a long term venture within The Sultanate that benefits all.”

Gilliar is the business partner who infamously wrote that there was a “a provisional agreement that the equity will be distributed as follows” — 20% for Hunter, 10% for Jim Biden, and 10% “held by H for the big guy ?,” which another recipient on the email, Tony Bobulinski, said referred to Joe Biden.

West Indies
Foreign businessmen were at times transparent that they viewed Hunter’s firm as a direct route to the U.S. vice president.

On a potential deal with Nagi Ghawi of the Mercantile Investment Group Holding Ltd of the West Indies, Hunter asked “what do we need to do moving forward?”

The response from Sean Conlon indicated a potential $10 billion deal, but also implied that Devon Archer, Hunter’s since-convicted business partner, knew so little about the actual finances that he asked a professor how it worked:

So we have engagement letter if they get other 10 bonds they have a face value of 10b. While it is far fetched Devon said he talked to his professor and these get traded. We get 10% in fees. We need to get these guys to an event or something where they get to just formally meet your Dad . For follow on they can talk to Chief of Staff . Let me know how soon we can do that. V brief. If Nagi gets that done we get more bonds to move. Regards your hard working partner in Positano! Sean
The direct request to meet with Joe Biden for the business deal angered Hunter. “WTF is he talking about. Mtg with JRB chief of staff????” he wrote. “Tell him I’ll do the mtg.”

Access
Hunter’s crew appeared to enjoy easy access to Obama administration officials with jobs relevant to their globetrotting money-making.

“Did you see POTUS named Norm Eisen to be Ambassador to the Czech Republic? We should all take a trip to visit him. Really nice Ambassador’s residence,” Rosemont Seneca partner Eric Schwerin wrote in 2010.

“Very nice and yes,” Hunter replied.

They also had access to foreign ambassadors to the U.S.

Archer wrote to a Chinese business partner that “the meeting with Hunter and myself with Chinese Ambassador has been requested and is in motion and agreed to.”

“Mr. Ambassador – Hope you had a nice time on the boat. I just wanted to confirm our meeting tomorrow,” to include an energy executive, Hunter wrote to the ambassador from the United Arab Emirates in 2012.

In a 2011 email, a correspondent wrote to Hunter to discuss the pair bringing a “Gift for Ambassador Al-Sabah for tomorrow,” referring to the ambassador from Kuwait to the U.S.:

Regarding our meeting tomorrow, what time do you want to meet beforehand (and where) to discuss strategy? I’ve met him before and gone to him for access to the Kuwait Investment Authority before (he put me in touch with KIA and I met with them in NYC) but what I didn’t get from him (which he kindly offered) was access to private investors inside Kuwait as well as government sources. We will want that as well.
In March 2010, an associate wrote that “I was speaking to the Ambassador” from Serbia and “Vladimir said he met with you last week and there may be some interest in following up on your discussion. He did not want you to think he forgot about it.” Serbia’s ambassador to the U.S. at the time was Vladimir Petrovic.

The firm appeared conscious of how Hunter’s work could appear unsavory for the son of an elected official. After Barack Obama selected Bill Daley as his chief of staff, despite a supposed ban on lobbyists in the administration, Hunter’s partner Eric Schwerin wrote in 2011:

“Daley was never a ‘registered’ lobbyist although he directed SBC and JP Morgan’s lobbying efforts. Also, the article noted that he was registered as Foreign Lobbyist under FARA at one point (in 1979 when he was at Mayer Brown). Again, you are different at this point and time, but sometimes I wonder why we stress about this so much.”

Hunter Biden-Linked Legislative Group Has Partnered for Years With a Chinese Propaganda Front

The State Legislative Leaders Foundation facilitated Hunter Biden's first trip to China


Joe Biden and Michael Lin / Michelangelo Investment Holdings LimitedChuck Ross• May 19, 2021

A nonprofit group backed by some of America’s biggest companies and linked to Hunter Biden works closely with a Chinese Communist Party front group accused of trying to influence state and local policymakers.

Since 2015, the State Legislative Leaders Foundation has partnered with the Chinese People’s Association for Friendship with Foreign Countries, a Communist Party-affiliated propaganda organization. In 2010, a foundation adviser facilitated Hunter Biden's first business trip to China.

U.S. officials have voiced concerns about the Chinese People’s Association, saying that Beijing uses it to influence the West. The U.S.-China Economic and Security Review Commission said in a 2018 report that the association performs intelligence and propaganda functions for the CCP.

Last year, the State Department pulled out of a national governors' convention because of the group’s involvement in the event. Then-secretary of state Mike Pompeo said that the association sought to "malignly influence" local leaders.

The State Legislative Leaders Foundation is funded by nearly 70 major companies and industry groups, including Facebook, Google, Comcast, and Apple. It hosts forums for leaders in statehouses across the country. The group also hosts summits for legislators and major corporations, both domestic and international.

Founded in 1972, the foundation’s first foray into China was in 2009 at a summit arranged by Michael Lin and James Bulger. The two businessmen would later join Hunter Biden at a private equity firm that brokered a controversial deal to sell a U.S. auto parts maker to a Chinese government-linked aviation company.

The foundation has developed extensive contacts in both the United States and China. Last week, its president Stephen Lakis gave a keynote speech at a summit for some of the top think tanks in the United States. The summit was hosted by the China Public Diplomacy Association, another CCP-linked front organization that has Chinese People’s Association members on its board. Officials with the Chinese government, state-controlled media outlets, and Beijing’s main foreign-language propaganda agency spoke at the event.

California Senate Majority Leader Robert Hertzberg, a director of the foundation, was also a panelist at the forum. The Democrat is one of the country’s most prominent state lawmakers to appear at the group’s China-focused events. California state financial disclosures reviewed by the Washington Free Beacon show that the Chinese People’s Association and State Legislative Leaders Foundation have each paid around $7,500 for Hertzberg’s trips to China summits in 2016, 2018, and 2019. Photos of the events posted on a Chinese social networking site show Hertzberg met with Chinese Communist Party provincial leaders on at least two of those trips.

While the State Legislative Leaders Foundation does not outwardly lobby, it appears to serve as a matchmaker of sorts for its corporate donors and state lawmakers. That dynamic is highlighted in emails from Hunter Biden’s laptop obtained by the Free Beacon.

In March 2015, Bulger emailed Biden with an offer to help a Chinese-government linked aviation company purchase an American auto parts maker.

Bulger told Biden the deal "might be disconcerting to local stakeholders such as Unions and local elected officials concerned about job losses to an overseas buyer."

"In order to mitigate such valid concerns it would be wise for me to meet local elected officials (through SLLF contacts) and brief them on our plans for the business post purchase," Bulger wrote.

Biden responded to the email saying he was worried offshoring jobs would generate negative press.

The deal eventually went through. Aviation Industry Corporation of China bought a controlling stake in Michigan-based parts maker Henniges Automotive for $600 million. BHR Partners, the consortium to which Biden and Bulger belonged, held a 49 percent stake in the deal.

Bulger did not respond to a request to comment on whether he contacted the lawmakers he knew through the foundation. Lin also did not respond to a request for comment.

The two partners arranged Biden’s first business trip to China in April 2010. The trip was highlighted in a report that Senate Republicans released last year on Biden’s foreign business dealings. Republicans said that Biden’s visit led to future business opportunities for him in China.

Months before that junket, Lin and Bulger organized the State Legislative Leaders Foundation’s first summit in Beijing. Lin said in a speech after the event that leaders from statehouses across the United States attended the forum, alongside Chinese government officials and senior executives from companies like Coca-Cola, Bank of America, and Bank of Beijing.

According to a transcript of his remarks, Lin said the summit could help China develop business relationships that could yield "new resources" and technology for Beijing.

State Legislative Leaders Foundation tax filings for 2009 show the summit was "held in conjunction with the Chinese government."

The foundation brought in between $3 million and $4 million in revenue each year for the past decade. Tax filings show that the group’s corporate backers contribute between $15,000 and $50,000 to serve on the group’s advisory council. The Motion Picture Association of America gave $45,000 to the group in 2017, while the Wireless Association gave $35,000.

Lakis’s salary has grown considerably over the past decade. He was paid $548,000 in 2018, up from $327,000 in 2008, according to the foundation’s tax filings.

Lin and Bulger entered a second partnership with the State Legislative Leaders Foundation and Lakis in 2018 through a venture called Michelangelo Investment Holdings Limited. According to the company’s posts on the Chinese networking website Sodu.com, Michelangelo joined the foundation’s advisory council in May 2018. The only other Chinese company on the advisory council was DJI, the Chinese drone maker. The Trump administration blacklisted DJI last year over its suspected ties to the Chinese government.

Michelangelo’s now-defunct website touted its links to politically connected figures, including Lakis, state lawmakers, and both Joe and Hunter Biden. An archived version of the website features an undated photo of Hunter Biden at a BHR Partners meeting. In another photo, Lin is seen posing with Joe Biden at an event in 2017.


Michelangelo also posted a summary of Lin and Bulger’s meetings in the United States, as well as of State Legislative Leaders Foundation’s third China-U.S. Provincial and State Legislature Cooperation Forum, which was held on Nov. 29, 2018, in Las Vegas.

Dozens of state legislators from across the United States attended the forum, as did the president of the Chinese People’s Association, China’s ambassador to the United States, and several consular officials. The website says that Hertzberg, the California state senator, met with a Communist Party official from the Hebei Provincial Standing Committee.

One photo shows Lin posing with Hertzberg. Another shows Lin and Bulger dining with Eric Schwerin, a longtime Hunter Biden business partner.


Hertzberg’s office did not respond to multiple requests for comment. The State Legislative Leaders Foundation and Lakis also did not respond to a request for comment.

Hunter Was Just One Spawn Of The Powerful Who Occupied A Network That Might Be Called ‘Family, Inc.’

By Luke Rosiak

Materials on Hunter Biden’s laptop lift the veil on not just his attempts to trade on the family name, but an entire universe of relatives of the rich and powerful chasing scraps, a Daily Wire review found.

The famous names went especially far overseas, where denizens seemed to assume that like in third world countries, the relatives of American royalty were royalty.
In announcing Hunter’s appointment, Burisma wanted to emphasize that he was the son of the vice president, but Hunter cautioned them, “I think it’s much more effective to let people draw their own conclusions or give it to them on background… If they want to be more subtle they could say something like Mr. Biden served as Honorary Co-Chair of then 2008 Obama-Biden Inaugural Comm.”

Hunter, Archer, and Jason Galanis, a porn magnate who’d had a previous run-in with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), were also involved with a company called Burnham.

An email from Xin Wang, a Chinese executive of a partnership between Hunter’s firm and a Chinese company, said that there were “3 carveouts from Burnham’s exclusivity in North America.” One was for Joseph P. Kennedy Enterprise, which manages the money of the family of former president John F. Kennedy.

In May 2016, Archer and Galanis were charged with fraud involving a Native American tribe — along with Galanis’ father.

In the 1980s, Galanis’ father was sentenced to 27 years in prison in a case involving tax fraud, in which he was prosecuted by Rudy Giuliani. In 2001, he disappeared while on work release. Jason Galanis’ brother Derek is also in prison and says he is listed as an associate of the Gambini crime family. He wrote a book called “Greed and Fear: The Galanis Crime Family,” in which he details his father’s crimes as the “levels of manipulation and the evil machinations that fill the mind of this sociopath afflicted with megalomania.”

Access to foreign countries often came through the relatives of politicians there.

Hunter sought Mexican riches through Miguel Alaman Magnani, the billionaire son of a former Mexican governor and grandson of a former Mexican president. In February 2016, he lamented that no business deal had solidified despite showering him with White House access, writing:
I’m attending meeting w/ President N w/ Dad… We have so many great things to do together and I want you at the plane when the the VP lands with your Mom and Dad… We have been talking about business deals and partnerships for 7 years. And I really appreciate you letting me stay at your resort villa…but I have brought every single person you have ever asked me to bring to the F’ing WHite House and the Vice President’s house and the inauguration and then you go completely silent.
Alaman Magnani was also an investor in Hunter’s firm Rosemont, according to the emails.

Archer was “on the board of the KZ [Kazakhstan] National Investment Fund and very close w/ PM of KZ and his son Iskander,” Hunter wrote to a friend seeking investment for a real estate venture in Los Angeles. Hunter also said the “PMs son is a very good friend” of his own.

In another email, Archer told Hunter they would be having dinner at the home of Timur Kulibayev, the son-in-law of a former president of Kazakhstan, saying “Supposedly worth 5-10X what Forbes has him at which is $2.1b. On the Board of [Russian oil company] Gazprom. Major player.” He sent a link to his Wikipedia page.

“See ref to money laundering,” Hunter said.

“An accusation from what I’ve read,” Archer replied.

The Financial Times later reported on a “secret scheme” that “appears to allow Kulibayev to receive a share of the profits from pipeline contracts granted to ETK, a company owned by Russian businessman Alexander Karmanov.”

In June 2014, Archer sent Hunter an email that he proposed sending in Hunter’s name with the subject “Mohammad draft (aka Emirs bro).” Mohammed bin Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani is the son of Qatar’s former ruler and brother of its current ruler.

We “want to form a long term partnership with Qatar and will do what we can to make sure there is room for” the Qatar Investment Authority, it said, signing off: “Very Best, Hunter.”

The company’s inroads in the country of Mali also came from the family of a top leader.

“I wanted to connect you by email to John Nevergole who works with us on a number of projects and is partners with the son-in-law of Mali’s former President. Per our conversation yesterday, John can help you figure out some connections to Africom and also talk to you about how to proceed on Mali,” Eric Schwerin, one of Hunter’s partners in a venture called Rosemont Seneca, wrote to an associate in July 2012.

The prior year, Schwerin wrote to Hunter that Archer had a meeting with Mali’s president.

Nevergole also informed Hunter and Archer that he had arranged a meeting with the president of Guinea through “Alpha (the President’s son).”

Signed books from Joe Biden helped play up Hunter’s clout abroad.

In 2011, Archer asked Hunter for “3 Biden books” to leave with Zong Qinghou, a Chinese billionaire, with whom “we’re going to do a follow-on real estate pitch or just general ‘we can be your agent in the US’ convo.”

“Of course,” Hunter replied. A colleague noted that “there weren’t any books in the office that I could see except for two unsigned hardbacks that Arlene gave us to get signed – which we need to do,” and Hunter added, “There are whole stack o them in my bookcase by desk.”

Apparently referring to an Indian businessman Hunter’s firm was courting for an investment, another of Hunter’s colleagues, Rob Walker, wrote, “Are you going to see your dad before tuesday afternoon? Ravi sent me two books to get signed about 6 months ago and I haven’t done a thing.”

On the American side, a partner in their Chinese dealings was James Bulger, the nephew of Whitey Bulger, the notorious Boston mobster who was arrested in 2011 after 16 years on the lam.

Hunter’s secretary was Anne Marie Person, who appears to be the younger sister of Fran Person, Joe Biden’s longtime body man. In 2015, after Fran left the White House, he entered the world of international deals, having what Hunter called “a very real China deal he is working on” to bring Sea World to China.

Fran wrote that he just “finished a meeting with former Ambassador to China, Gary Locke, who is on the board of Harves Investment Group,” the U.S. arm of a Chinese real estate company tied to the China Development Bank.

The network of relatives of the powerful extended to the corporate world, too.

Lea Carpenter, a descendent of the du Pont dynasty that amounts to royalty in Delaware, contacted Hunter to get an email address for Heinz, the stepson of John Kerry. Hunter, in turn, said he’d “like to reconnect with Louis Freeh’s son,” referring to the son of the former FBI director. Carpenter provided his email.

When Archer asked if Hunter knew a political consultant pitching an international deal, who he described as an “interesting character to say the least,” Hunter said he knew him through “the Waste Management co founder’s son.”

Hunter also wrote that the son of Jim Kimsey, an AOL co-founder, “tried to set up a meeting with him for us.”

Perhaps the most on-point email in Hunter’s inbox came not from a business associate, but in an advertisement for a line of preppy clothing.

“Bring your dad to work day,” the subject line said, adding in the body: “We immediately regretted that decision.”

They also include a motley crew of obscure American scions, such as the nephew of notorious mobster Whitey Bulger.

Among Hunter’s close associates were Joe Biden’s brother “Uncle Jim”; Chris Heinz, the stepson of former Secretary of State John Kerry; and Devon Archer, Heinz’s college roommate who went on to become an adviser to Kerry’s presidential campaign.

In 2014, Hunter and Archer joined the board of Burisma, a Ukrainian gas company.

Former FBI Director Louis Freeh Gave $100,000 to a Private Trust For Joe Biden’s Grandchildren – Discussed ‘Future Work Options’ with Hunter as Middleman

Former FBI Director Louis Freeh gave $100,000 to a private trust for Joe Biden’s grandchildren, the Daily Mail revealed.

Louis Freeh also spoke with then-VP Joe Biden in 2016 to “explore with him some future work options” that included Hunter Biden.

Freeh, who served as FBI Director under Bill Clinton and George Bush, ran a consulting firm with very corrupt clients who ended up being charged with crimes.

According to the Daily Mail, Freeh’s clients included the “now-jailed Malaysian prime minister who stole billions of dollars from his country and a Romanian real estate tycoon convicted of bribery.”

Via The Daily Mail:
Freeh brought up the idea again a month later – and mentioned that he was working for the then-Malaysian prime minister Najib Razak, who was in the midst of a scandal over one of the world’s biggest financial frauds, and was later sentenced to 12 years in prison in 2020.

‘I would like to talk with you and Dad about working together next year,’ Freeh wrote to Hunter.
‘No doubt both he and you have many options and probably some which are more attractive than my small shop.
‘As you know, we have both a law firm and ‘solutions/investigations’ group with a very good brand, DC and DEL (and NYC) offices, and a profitable and interesting global practice (eg., I’m currently representing the Malaysian PM and his family).
‘So if it’s something which interests you both, let’s talk about it at some point. I’m very flexible and we could set it up as an equity-share or whatever works best. It would certainly be an honor to work with you both.’
The emails, obtained by DailyMail.com from Hunter Biden’s abandoned laptop, show that around the same time Freeh was making overtures to the Bidens for business deals, he also gave $100,000 to a trust for Joe Biden’s grandchildren.

The ‘donation’ was made to a trust for the children of Hallie Biden, the widow of Joe’s late son Beau who later became Hunter’s lover.
In July that year, in an email marked ‘confidential and privileged’, Freeh wrote to Hunter that he ‘would be delighted to do future work with you.’
‘I also spoke to Dad a few weeks ago and would like to explore with him some future work options,’ Freeh said. ‘I believe that working together on these (and other legal) matters would be of value, fun and rewarding.’
Louis Freeh told Hunter that he gave $100k donation to his sister-in-law-turned-lover-crack-smoking partner Hallie.

The donation was not made to a charity. It was made to a private trust.

“As you know, our family foundation made a $100,000 contribution to Hallie’s children’s trust last year. My accountants (PWC) now advise that since the grant did not go to a 501(c) organization, it was not a proper foundation gift.,” Freeh wrote in an April 2017 email to Hunter Biden. “So we’ve been in touch with the IRS and PWC (PricewaterhouseCoopers) and want to correct the situation as follows: I’ll make a new $100K gift to Haley’s trust and Hallie’s trust will reimburse the foundation by paying it $100K.”

Why Did Former FBI Director Freeh Give $100k To A Trust For VP Biden's Grandkids In 2016?

FRIDAY, MAY 21, 2021 - 11:40 AM
Authored by Thomas Lifson via AmericanThinker.com,

Take it from the New York Times and Washington Post: nothing to see here, move along. Definitely not a bribe.

Emails recovered from Hunter Biden’s abandoned laptop reveal that while Joe Biden was vice president, a trust for his grandchildren – the children of his late son Beau Biden – received a hundred thousand dollars from a foundation controlled by former FBI Director Louis Freeh, who was a lawyer for 3 corrupt foreign businessmen, later convicted and imprisoned.

In the emails it is revealed that Freeh actually met with the sitting VP in 2016 "to explore with him some future work options," in addition to courting his son Hunter for collaboration.

Both the New York Post and the UK Daily Mail have published excerpts from the letters, though as of this writing, neither the Washington Post nor New York Times appear to have found the gift and emails worth mentioning.

The UKDM writes:
The 71-year-old, who served as FBI director under Bill Clinton and George Bush, ran a consultancy firm with highly controversial clients including a now-jailed Malaysian prime minister who stole billions of dollars from his country, a Romanian real estate tycoon convicted of bribery, and a French-Israeli diamond magnate later convicted of bribery and a $145 million property graft.
Freeh, a former judge, emailed Joe's son Hunter Biden in 2016, revealing he had spoken with the Vice President and proposed that they work together on private ventures once Biden left office.
In July that year, in an email marked 'confidential and privileged', Freeh wrote to Hunter that he 'would be delighted to do future work with you.'
'I also spoke to Dad a few weeks ago and would like to explore with him some future work options,' Freeh said. 'I believe that working together on these (and other legal) matters would be of value, fun and rewarding.'
Freeh brought up the idea again a month later – and mentioned that he was working for the then-Malaysian prime minister Najib Razak, who was in the midst of a scandal over one of the world's biggest financial frauds, and was later sentenced to 12 years in prison in 2020.
'I would like to talk with you and Dad about working together next year,' Freeh wrote to Hunter.
One letter seems to indicate that’s the gift was to be refunded and re-donated so as to be able to qualify for tax-deductible status – meaning taxpayers subsidize the gift that weas made in the context of seeking business arrangements, as the NYP summarizes:
“As you know, our family foundation made a $100K contribution to Hallie’s children’s trust last year,” Freeh wrote on April 24, 2017.
But Freeh said that his accountants “now advise that since the grant did not go to a 501(c) organization, it was not a proper foundation gift” and that he planned to fix the situation by making “a new $100k gift” and having the trust “reimburse the foundation by paying it $100k.”

(source)

Clarice Feldman advises me that she can find nothing in the federal government’s policies regarding gifts to its employees that would require disclosure of a gift to grandchildren. Public Citizen’s review of rules for gifts to the president and vice president indicates in point ten:
Gifts to the President and Vice President. Both offices may accept any gift on his own behalf or on behalf of any family member, provided that such acceptance does not violate conflict of interest or anti-bribery laws, or the Constitution of the United States.
Was there any conflict of interest or bribery? I would guess that a quid pro quo would have to be proven to make a charge of bribery stick. AS for conflict of interest, again, I can’t see any specifics that would be involved.

What about gift taxes? Anything over $14,000 a year is subject to federal gift taxes. But did this gift qualify for tax exempt status after it was re-gifted? If not, the gift could have been structured to pay out $14,000 per year and avoid those taxes.

It appears that the relationship that was cemented with this six figure gift flourished, at least to the extent that Freeh joined the board of directors of the Beau Biden Foundation.

The entire situation reminds me of the old saying about DC that the problem about what’s going on is not so much what’s illegal, as what is perfectly legal.

EXCLUSIVE: Joe Biden Knew Abusive Hunter Was Go-Between On Secret Deals Involving Biden Children

By Kari Donovan
Published May 22, 2021 at 5:30pm

Joe Biden Wants people to see him as a great defender of women and children, but he allowed his son to abuse women and children and did nothing about it when he easily could have.

Child Abuse takes adults to combat, and the American media, even Conservative outlets, do Americans no favors by glossing over hints of criminal, abusive behavior in powerful people. Hunter Biden is one of those powerful people who gets a free pass because his dad is Joe Biden.

The Gateway Pundit reported on this first back in October.

1621729933233.png

Democrat Joe Biden said on Friday, “Women hold up half the world.” But if he really cared about women, would he have allowed someone to talk to his daughter-in-law like they were garbage?

If someone sent this to your daughter or Mom, would you think there was a problem?

“Lets see you handle this Hallie you silly uniformed and disinterested shell for whatever man you decide to use next. Funny thing is you could just as easily be the co/chairman of the “center for the religious conviction that gays should be put to death.” Literally as you told me you don’t really care what a guy believes just as long as he’s certain of his beliefs.. So you want to handle you clueless middle aged over boxed flat ass loser? All yours/ RHB1″

This is an email from Hunter Biden to Hallie Biden in 2018 about some business for the Beau Biden Foundation:



And it is worse than just name-calling; Daily Mail published an article this week:
EXCLUSIVE: Former FBI director Louis Freeh gave $100,000 to a private trust for Joe Biden’s grandchildren and spoke with the vice president in 2016 ‘to explore lucrative future work options’ with Hunter as the middle man.
After reading that Daily Mail article about the corruption in the Biden family, I thought it was an interesting story, but something that struck me as odd is how gently they dealt with Hunter’s inappropriate behavior.

I called Jack Maxey, a former host of the War Room Pandemic, to see if I could expand on that title a little, as in, remind people we are talking about Hunter, a very abusive man. Maxey sent me documents with a note, “Happy digging.”

How about:

Abusive Hunter Biden Was Go-Between On Major Secret Deals Involving Biden Children
Is it just me? Let’s remember there is enough evidence that Hunter Biden is abusive to women and girls to at least investigate. Still, the media continues to gloss over the abuse allegations made by his own sister-in-law. Jack Maxey talked about it at length and posted about it months ago from Bannon’s War Room, so it is not a secret.

As most people know, Jack Maxey gave a copy of Hunter’s abandoned hard drive to Daily Mail. Then the Daily Mail confirmed with a cybersecurity expert that the contents were authentic. Let’s not forget that Hunter wrote stuff, like that passage above, to his own sister-in-law, with whom he was having an affair after his brother’s death and with whom he allegedly acted inappropriately with children, in the home they shared for some period of time.

Why hasn’t there been any investigation of those charges? If it were anyone else, there would be plenty of people citing the laptop as evidence enough for an investigation.

Let’s remember that the foundation the family is discussing in those exchanges is the Beau Biden Foundation, which Beau Biden’s widow, Hallie, is the chairman of after her husband’s death. And they happen during the time period while Hunter was having an affair with his brother’s widow.

The Beau Biden Foundation was meant to combat childhood sexual crimes of all things, and there is no remorse at all that a child or children could be the victims of abuse by Hunter.

From an email from Beau Biden about the foundation:


And yet, Hunter Biden is still directing matters into that foundation. And as the Daily Mail article points out, it is exposed as acting as a go-between for other high-profile government liaisons into very lucrative financial deals between foreign countries and the Biden family.
And it is not a secret that Hunter is loose cannon.

Hunter Biden was going on and on by text about Hallie, children, and guns, to who Maxey calls his “Therapist/Drinking buddy” while he was carrying secrets between nations, worth a lot of money.

Consider these childish texts:

On the laptop, according to Maxey, are other texts that talk about crimes and exploitations of children, including children Hunter Biden is related to, and yet, according to his texts, he believes he is the victim. These are classic patterns of abuse, and why is the media afraid to say so?



And in this text exchange, note that Hunter Biden is harassing Hallie Biden about allowing him to watch her take a shower. Notice the abusive tactics of gaslighting, shaming, humiliating, and passive-aggressive pouting. These are classic signs of manipulation, degradation, and mental and emotional abuse. And do not overlook the sexual abuse.



The American media needs to do better when setting a narrative about the Biden family.

Someone needs to defend the widows and children, and it is not Joe Biden, Hunter Biden, or Jill Biden. Because when they had a chance to do it in their own family, they didn’t. I am not going to listen to a lecture from any of them.
