SHOCKER: Hunter Biden Is Under Investigation

To no one’s surprise, Joe Biden’s money-grubbing son is being investigated by a federal grand jury.

“This story broke in October,” tweeted Donald Trump’s former acting Director of National Intelligence Ric Grenell to CNN’s Jake Tapper yesterday. “You didn’t do it then. Were you instructed to ignore it until after the election?”

Grennel was referring to a story that Tapper, like every other mainstream media lickspittle, had just reported after having repeatedly failed to do so prior to the November 3 presidential election: Hunter Biden, the wastrel son of the not-yet-president-elect, is the subject of a federal grand jury investigation into his “tax affairs,” as he euphemistically put it.

What a difference a few weeks makes. With the election seemingly safely behind their candidate, CNN finally feels free to engage in journalism. And Twitter, Facebook, and their Big Tech brethren are now allowing news about Hunter Biden to be reported on their platforms.

Grenell doesn’t have a law degree, but, like a good lawyer, he refrained from asking Tapper a question that he didn’t already know the answer to. And thanks to the intrepid work of James O'Keefe and his team at Project Veritas, we all know that the answer is Yes. Tapper and the rest of his CNN colleagues were told by their boss to refrain from reporting on Hunter Biden’s shadiness in the run-up to the election.

As Fox News’s Joseph Wulfsohn reports, “Grenell’s question appears to be valid after recordings leaked by Project Veritas last week revealed that CNN President Jeff Zucker and Political Director David Chalian urged staff back in October not to cover the explosive New York Post report that shed light on Hunter Biden’s shady business dealings overseas.”

Which explosive New York Post story is Wulfsohn talking about? This one, for those of you who’ve been off the grid for the past two months or are among the full 50% of Democrats who didn’t hear about it prior to casting a vote for Joe Biden.

“Obviously, we’re not going with the New York Post story right now on Hunter Biden,” Chalian is heard saying during a conference call on October 14 — the same day the Post published its first story on junior Biden’s abandoned laptop computer and his adventures with corrupt Ukrainian energy companies and scheming Chinese communists.

“I learned yesterday for the first time that the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Delaware advised my legal counsel, also yesterday, that they are investigating my tax affairs,” Hunter Biden claimed Wednesday in a prepared statement — a statement as hard to believe as the one his dad made earlier this fall when he told Fox News’s Peter Doocy, “I have never spoken to my son about his overseas business dealings.”

“I take this matter very seriously,” the junior Biden added, “but I am confident that a professional and objective review of these matters will demonstrate that I handled my affairs legally and appropriately, including with the benefit of professional tax advisers.”

Suuure he takes it seriously. Just as we’re sure he takes seriously the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee’s 87-page report titled “Hunter Biden, Burisma, and Corruption: The Impact on U.S. Government Policy and Related Concerns.” If you’re interested in seeing just how crooked this guy is, read the full report. If you’re pressed for time, this article sums it up.

As Miranda Devine reported yesterday in the New York Post, “It’s more than strange that Hunter Biden released a statement today in the form of an official press release from his father’s ‘Biden-Harris transition’ operation, for the purpose of confirming he is under federal investigation for tax fraud. … The statement had an addendum from his father: ‘President-elect Biden is deeply proud of his son, who has fought through difficult challenges, including the vicious personal attacks of recent months, only to emerge stronger.’ Sorry, that doesn’t wash. For too long, Joe Biden has gotten away with cynically using sympathy for his druggie son to shield himself from scrutiny of his family’s shady moneymaking schemes.”

You’re telling us. If Joe Biden is “deeply proud” of his indisputably corrupt son, he has no business being anywhere near the Oval Office.
