(TheFreedomFlag.com)- Libertarian Kentucky Senator Rand Paul is pushing for the Department of Justice to begin a criminal investigation into the foreign business dealings of Hunter Biden and his law firm. During Wednesday’s broadcast of “The Story” on Fox News, Rand Paul said that he is sending the preliminary report into business dealings by Hunter Biden and his law firm to the Department of Justice.
He said that he recommended a “criminal” investigation into Biden’s dealings.
A report from the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, along with the Senate Finance Committee, concluded recently that a law firm run by the son of Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden received almost $6 million from a Chinese oligarch in “consulting” fees.
The report also discovered that Hunter Biden wired some $1,398,999 to the Lion Hall Group, a company run by Joe Biden’s brother, James Biden. The Senate committees determined that the transaction may be “criminal financial activity.”
Biden discussed the report on Fox News and also referenced how Hunter Biden would take trips with his father, Joe Biden, when he was vice president. Hunter would take trips on Air Force Two and travel at the same time as his father, only to come to agreements with companies from the companies his father travelled to soon afterwards.
“I think riding on Air Force Two and doing business is illegal,” Paul said. “I think that is against the law, and probably a felony. I think it’s illegal to take money from a Russian politician’s wife, $3.5 million. Was it reported accurately?”
Paul was referencing the news that Hunter Biden reportedly received a $3.5 million wire transfer in 2014 from the wife of a Russian politician. Elena Baturina is a Russian billionaire and the widow of Yuri Luzhkov, the former mayor of Moscow who died in 2019.
“I think the only way to determine the actual legality of this is to have it referred to the Department of Justice,” Paul added. “So I’m going to send the report over. I don’t know if the whole committee will vote for it, but I’m sending the report, tomorrow, to the Department of Justice and we’re asking for a criminal referral.
Let’s see Joe Biden worm his way out of this one.
