Treasury Department Denies GOP's Request for Hunter Biden Information

Linkedin Share

As soon as the Republican Party took began to hold even the faintest hopes of taking control of one or more chambers of Congress in the 2022 midterms, they were suggesting that they’d use this newfound power to take a closer look at the Biden family’s vast list of foreign entanglements.

Chief among the concern here was the role of Hunter Biden in all of this.  This was the former crack-addict son of Joe Biden who somehow keeps winding up in cushy, high paying business gigs without any real experience to bring with him.

And so, as the GOP prepares to investigate the perceived nepotism that Hunter has benefited from, some departments within the Biden administration appear to be stonewalling their efforts.

The US Treasury Department refused Wednesday to provide House Republicans any suspicious activity reports it may have on foreign banking and other business transactions by Hunter Biden and other members of President Joe Biden’s family.

Jonathan Davidson, Treasury’s legislative affairs chief, told House Oversight and Accountability Chairman James Comer in a letter that he needs more details about why the panel is seeking such “highly sensitive” information.

Comer wrote on Jan. 11 to Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen for any so-called suspicious activity reports — used by banks to flag what they deem dubiously large transactions — as part of his panel’s probes into overseas business and other dealings by the president’s son.

Without acknowledging whether such reports on the Bidens exist, Davidson on Wednesday instructed Comer that “improper disclosure” of such information can undermine the executive branch’s “conduct of law enforcement, intelligence, and national security activities.”

The committee chairman was not amused.

Comer responded that “this coordinated effort by the Biden Administration to hide information about President Biden and his family’s shady business schemes is alarming and raises many questions.”

Comer made it very clear in his letter to Yellen that there were concerns about President Joe Biden’s potential conflicts of interest, reiterating that this could constitute a rather serious national security matter.
