As the U.S. presidential race began roaring to life in 2016, authorities in the former Soviet republic of Latvia flagged a series of " suspicious" financial transactions to Hunter Biden and other colleagues at a Ukrainian natural gas company and sought Kiev's help investigating, according to documents and interviews.
The Feb. 18, 2016 alert to Ukraine came from the Latvian prosecutorial agency responsible for investigating money laundering, and it specifically questioned whether Vice President Joe Biden's younger son and three other officials at Burisma Holdings were the potential beneficiaries of suspect funds.
"The Office for Prevention of Laundering of Proceeds Derived from Criminal Activity ... is currently investigating suspicious activity of Burisma Holdings Limited," the Latvian agency also known as the FIU wrote Ukraine's financial authorities.
The memo was released to me by the Ukrainian General Prosecutor's Office and confirmed by the Latvian embassy to the United States.
Latvian authorities said they did not get any incriminating information back from Ukraine to warrant further investigation and did not take additional action in 2016.
But the memo adds to the mounting evidence that there was ongoing investigative activity surrounding Burisma Holdings and Hunter Biden's compensation as a board member in the weeks just before Joe Biden forced the firing of the Ukraine prosecutor overseeing the Burisma investigation in spring 2016.

Gonna be funny when Biden’s kid gets extradited in the middle of the campaign.
Sounds like we need one of those.
But early in 2019, NABU and the Ukraine prosecutor general's office announced they were reopening the investigation into Burisma, specifically to revisit the allegations about money laundering, according to the notice of suspicion released by prosecutors in that country. You can read NABU's request to reopen the probe here.
That probe is ongoing and recently was expanded to look at other issues. And the entire Burisma episode is now part of the larger impeachment proceedings playing out in America against President Donald Trump.
I really hope they nominate Biden.
The Office for Prevention of Laundering of Proceeds Derived from Criminal Activity
Sounds like we need one of those.
If we had one, it would get staffed with partisans.
This story has been around at least a few weeks. GOP Senate is ignoring it, naturally. Solomon can report until he is blue in the face but without the drama of Biden Jr. taking the 5th under the bright lights of a Senate hearing none of this is going anywhere.
There’s no doubt that the whole Hunter Biden / Burisma thing was corruption at its most basic level.
Sometimes the real crime is not what’s illegal, but what’s legal.
The US Senate is where truth goes to die. There are other venues, and any venue is better than the US Senate.
We do. The banking regulations (Treasury) are all over this stuff, and often harrass innocent people.
Maybe this will land Hunter a job in the prison laundry.
I trust that if Solomon reports it...it is GOLD.
This guy is thorough and deserves a Pulitzer for all he is uncovering. He’s one of the few, if not the only, Journalist that I actually respect.
PS- Latvians trying to fix their upcoming election by bullying the Ukraine to investigate a Biden!
He wont use the Whistleblowers name, and he wont Investigate the Bidens either.
Don't hold your breath.
Solomon better watch out, or theyll be listening to his office and reading his email - wait.
they already gave his phone records to Schiff!
Lord help! They’re even holding hands! What reason could there be for that, except to send a signal to some people?
The bigger picture is the suggestion that this round robin setup with Biden, hunter, American tax payer dollars and the funding of Soros globalist agenda is interesting
