While Hunter Biden wrangles with Congress about what’s going to happen with those subpoenas, two new incriminating wrinkles in the Biden Crime family drama have emerged in the past few days.
That gives us three updates to cover in this ‘episode’ of the Hunter Biden drama: the Congressional subpoena, shady art hustlers, and a coke-ing gun.
That vote to hold Hunter in contempt of Congress now stands in limbo while Congress and Hunter’s lawyers discuss possible paths forward.
Republicans were set to advance the contempt resolution against Hunter Biden to the House floor in a procedural step Tuesday, but called it off “to give the attorneys additional time to reach an agreement,” according to a spokesperson for the House Oversight Committee.
The move comes days after an attorney for President Joe Biden’s son indicated a willingness to cooperate with Republicans’ ongoing impeachment inquiry following months of defiance.
Still, attorney Abbe Lowell wrote to House Republicans Friday that his client’s cooperation is dependent on the committee issuing a new subpoena. They maintained that the two subpoenas sent in November were not legitimate because they were issued before the full House authorized the impeachment inquiry into President Joe Biden. — WaPo
Remember that little speech Hunter gave on the day he defied the Congressional subpoena? The one in which he said his father had no ‘financial’ dealings with Hunter’s business associates?
None but the most devoted boot-lickers took that claim at face value. But there was one detail tacked on at the end that raised some eyebrows. Hunter went out of his way to justify the legitimacy of his art career.
No less than Barack Obama’s old ethics officer has already raised serious concerns about potential corruption in the Biden White House: Biden’s Son & Sister Blasted By Obama’s Former Ethics Chief
We now have more information on how justified that ethics officer’s concerns really were:
As you recall, concerns were raised that Hunter would be able to know who the buyers were, which sets up pay-for-play hazards for the Biden family with anyone who might have ulterior motives behind making a sizeable ‘art purchase’. Art sales have been a known method of money laundering.
We were given solemn assurances that there would be no contact between Hunter and the buyers, right? We already knew that was a lie, since we shared news stories like this one: HUNTER BIDEN: Gallery Owner Photo Raises Fresh Questions Of Pay-For-Play
The unanswered question was, how blatant was it?
A Congressional Hearing swore in an art dealer to find out.
Normally, a gallery does NOT disclose the name of the buyer to an artist. But the Bidens knew who 70% of the buyers were (mostly Democrat donors) and made informing the Bidens of the buyers’ identities was built into the original contract. (This clause was later dropped.)
At least one of the buyers was suspiciously appointed to a federal commission.
The Biden White House repeatedly told the public that Hunter Biden’s art sales were covered by an ethics agreement to ensure they were arms-length and that the first family — Hunter included — was blinded to the identity of buyers.
But George Berges, owner of the prestigious Berges art galleries based in New York and Berlin that sold Hunter Biden’s painting from 2020 to 2023, told congressional impeachment investigators that the first son likely knew the identity of 70% of the buyers – the largest who were Democrat donors – and that Hunter Biden’s first contract made an unusual request when the relationship started. — JustTheNews
Hunter’s Gun and Coke
Hunter Biden’s lawyers had been hoping to have the gun charges dropped, but that’s not going to happen. Not now that the holster has tested positive for cocaine residue.
Democrats are demanding that perpetrators of gun crime not get off easily. Just like they have been demanding that tax cheats pay their fair share.
Somehow, these same Democrats tend to look the other way when those demands implicate Hunter Biden.
Hunter Biden cried foul, claiming that the charges were ‘Trump-ed up’. The special prosecutor shot back:
Weiss fired back in his filing, saying that Hunter Biden produces no evidence to support his allegation that the Executive Branch, led by his father, President Biden, and its Justice Department, led by the Attorney General appointed by his father, authorized prosecution by the U.S. Attorney and Special Counsel of their choosing for an “improper political purpose.”
Weiss called Hunter Biden’s attempts to dismiss the charges as “absurd,” saying that his motion to dismiss was “stunningly weak and wholly unsupported by facts and law.” —DailyWire
Hunter literally wrote a tell-all book that incriminated him with law enforcement. He wrote it AFTER knowing he was under investigation. (Nobody but Joe has ever accused him of being the brightest bulb in the box.)
Weiss went even further, noting that investigators “literally found drugs” on the pouch where Hunter Biden kept his gun.
“In 2023, FBI investigators pulled sealed evidence from the state police vault to take photographs of the defendant’s firearm,” Weiss said. “After opening the evidence, FBI investigators observed a white powdery substance on the defendant’s brown leather pouch that had held the defendant’s firearm in October 2018. Based on their training and experience, investigators believed that this substance was likely cocaine and that this evidence would corroborate the messages that investigators had obtained which showed the defendant buying and using drugs in October 2018. An FBI chemist subsequently analyzed the residue and determined that it was cocaine. To be clear, investigators literally found drugs on the pouch where the defendant had kept his gun.” —DailyWire
That’s going to make it tough for Hunter to argue that he was ‘clean’ when he bought the firearm, which included the federal form in which he had to swear he was not using illicit drugs.
People have been locked away for years because they claimed to be clean on that form when they weren’t. But Hunter thinks he’s special, and will never face real consequences because he has a famous daddy.
The abrasive message of repentance John preached 2000 years ago is still confrontational and offensive today — but it is also life-changing.
In our putrid, worldly culture that has turned away from God, this book is a must-read for every Christian.
