(Washington, DC) Judicial Watch announced today it received records from the U.S. Secret Service showing that, for the first five and a half years of the Obama administration, Hunter Biden traveled extensively while receiving a Secret Service protective detail. During the time period of the records provided, Hunter Biden, son of then-Vice President Joe Biden, took 411 separate domestic and international flights, including to 29 different foreign countries. He visited China five times.
Judicial Watchs February 7, 2020, Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request sought:
Records reflecting the dates and locations of travel, international and domestic, for Hunter Biden while he received a U.S. Secret Service protective detail; please note whether his travel was on Air Force One or Two, or other government aircraft, as applicable and whether additional family members were present for each trip; time frame is 2001 to present.
The Secret Service did not indicate, as was requested, whether Bidens travel was on Air Force One, Air Force Two or other government aircraft, or whether additional family members were present.
The Secret Service records show that countries and territories visited by Hunter Biden, between June 2009 and May 2014, included:
The records were also provided, but were not made public, to Senate Finance Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley and Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee Chairman Ron Johnson in a request the senators sent to Secret Service Director James Murray on February 5, 2020.
In its cover letter to Grassley and Johnson, which was included in the records produced to Judicial Watch, the Secret Service said that the senators request was time and labor intensive, and they could only provide a limited amount of information by the senators imposed turnaround time of February 19.
Given the Burisma-Ukraine-China influence peddling scandals, Hunter Bidens extensive international travel during the Obama-Biden presidency, including at least 5 trips to China, will raise additional questions. said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton.
According to reports , Vice President Joe Biden and Hunter Biden flew on Air Force Two for the official trip to Beijing in December 2013. The records obtained by Judicial Watch from the Secret Service show Hunter Biden arrived in Tokyo on December 2, 2013 and departed for Beijing two days later. While it is typical for the families of the president and vice president to travel with them, questions have been raised about whether Hunter Biden used the government trip to further his business interests.
NBC reporter Josh Lederman, who was one of four reporters on the December 2013 trip, noted in an October 2, 2019 report that, What wasnt known then was that as he accompanied his father to China, Hunter Biden was forming a Chinese private equity fund that associates said at the time was planning to raise big money, including from China.
During the last year and a half of the Obama administration, Hunter Biden served on the board of Ukrainian energy firm Burisma Holdings while his father was heading up Ukraine policy. Judicial Watch is seeking records through six lawsuits and dozens of FOIA requests related to Hunter Bidens dealings with the Ukrainian Burisma Holdings and the Chinese BHR Partners.
Wow! This is very impressive for a shitbird who got tossed out of the Navy!
Where do I sign up for this level of treatment?
Not even a smidgen of corruption...
Nothing to see here....institutional racism, orange man bad and virus are far more important than enriching your family on the backs of taxpayers.
The complete extended biden crime family should be RICO’d.
the first five and a half years of the Obama administration
He was working on a coffeetable book about strips joints of the world.
First word that came to my mind.
How in hell did he have time to diddle his brother’s widow and the stripper in Arkansas?............
And we freaking paid for all of this?
Interesting- no direct flights to Ukraine.
Seriously? and they complain about Trump golfing.
How much did all this cost the taxpayers? Must be millions.
Interesting- no direct flights to Ukraine.
Oh wait, that must be a partial list.
Yep, at the very least.
I missed it, did somebody appoint him Free Range Ambassador to the World?
They might have been smart enough to keep those off the books.
Remember all the missing pages for who visited the Fraud in the White Hut?
411 flights on our dime! WTF!
