The Secret Service is not handing over the answers to questions about President Joe Biden’s son Hunter Biden that Republican senators have wanted, according to Republican Iowa Senator Chuck Grassley.
A group of Republican senators sent a letter to Secret Service Director James Murray asking for any communications or documents related to Hunter Biden’s travels in the years 2010, 2011, and 2013, Breitbart News reported.
When he appeared on “Fox & Friends” on Friday Sen. Grassley said that they have been given some information, but are stonewalling on more.
“It’s just like pulling teeth to get answers from the Executive Branch, particularly on this subject. But the public is entitled to this information. Transparency brings accountability and ought to know what extent we know Hunter Biden traveled sometimes in an airplane with his father, and also there is an uncle, James Biden, that is involved in this, as well. I can’t make any accusations against the president of the United States, but I think we have a right to know what the son was doing in those instances, and these records from the Secret Service and the travel of him and the Secret Service would help us fill in details,” he said.
The host, Todd Piro, asked the senator if he believed that the Secret service was covering for the president’s son.
“At this point, you can’t draw any other conclusions or seem to me they would come forth and give this information we need. It is very suspicious when they don’t do it. It is hard for me to agree 100% they are covering or just not doing their job or responding to Congress, but surely looks like there is a connection there,” the senator said.
And now Goverment Accountability Institute President Peter Schweizer said in his new book, “Red Handed: How American Elites Get Rich Helping China Win,” that Hunter has a strong relationship with a Chinese businessman linked to the Xi regime that allowed him to make a ton of money due, in part, to his father who was then the Vice President of the United States, Fox News reported.
Citing his book, Schweizer said the Biden family benefited from Chinese figures to the tune of tens of millions of dollars in recent decades.
Host Mark Levin asked Schweizer how apparent it is that Chinese Communist Party-linked figures made it “part of their mission” to invest in Bidens due to Joe Biden’s long political career and influence.
“I think there’s no question. We spent more than a year investigating ‘Red Handed,’ and one of the most startling things we uncovered is the simple fact that the Biden family, while he was vice president of the United States and continuing when he became president, received some $31 million from Chinese individuals who are linked to the highest levels of Chinese intelligence,” the author said.
“Hunter Biden, in the Hunter Biden emails, refers to him as the ‘Superchairman.’ That’s kind of his nickname for him,” he said.
“And [Hunter] says in one email, ‘I don’t believe in the lottery anymore, but I believe in the Superchairman,'” the author said, referring to Che as a “sketchy Chinese businessman [whose] business partner at the time … was the vice minister [for] state security” in Beijing.”
“[The partner] was the head of something called the #8 Bureau. It doesn’t get any higher than that. These are the sorts of individuals that were striking deals with Hunter Biden,” he said.
“So there’s no question in my mind that [the Bidens] were targeted by the Chinese and for the life of me, this is unprecedented. I don’t know of a time in American history where the American first family has had this kind of a financial bond with a foreign intelligence service, particularly a foreign intelligence service that wants to defeat the United States in global competition,” he said.
