Treasury flagged foreign money flowing to Hunter Biden-tied firms as ‘suspicious’ ^ | 9/16/2020 | john Solomon

Senate panels investigating whether law enforcement, US intel turned blind eye to concerns.

A Treasury Department agency that polices financial threats such as money laundering flagged several foreign transactions to Hunter Biden-connected businesses as “suspicious” during the end of the Obama administration and the beginning of the Trump administration.

The concerns from the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN) concerns were highlighted in Suspicious Activity Reports turned over to Senate committees over the last year in conjunction with investigations into the Russia and Ukraine scandals, according to several officials familiar with the evidence.

As those Senate investigations wind toward the issuance of their first official report later this month, an essential question has emerged: Did U.S. law enforcement or intelligence agencies do anything to determine if the money flowing to Vice President Joe Biden’s son posed any criminal or intelligence threats? Officials at Treasury, FBI and the Office of Director of National Intelligence declined comment.

Senate Democrats first called attention to the existence of the SARS in a little-noticed letter late last year and are now bracing for the flagged financial transactions to be a major revelation in a joint report they expect to be published by the GOP-led Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs and the Senate Finance Committees as early as next week.

“The Republicans have had this in their back pocket for some time to make headlines as the election drew closer,” one Democratic source told Just the News.

A lawyer for Hunter Biden did not return an call requesting for comment. Spokesmen for the two Senate committees declined comment.

Nothing to see here at all folks. Nothing to see. The media has dismissed this.

Can you believe President Trump asked them about this? How horrible.... we must impeach him!

Biden and Hunter “ threats such as money laundering”

First clue to investigators were the bank account code names set up by the Bidens—— “Tide” “Wisk” and “All”.

Their millions of dollars became clean and fresh as all outdoors.

Totally debunked. Nothing suspicious whatsoever about hiring a guy at inflated rates ($83k/month) who doesn’t know the industry, doesn’t speak the language, has no related technical/managerial skills, and is a known crackhead - but whose father is VPOTUS and can influence all sorts of important policy decisions.

Nothing suspicious at all.

Let's not forget, as soon as he landed in DC, Obama placed his COS Rham Emanuel in charge of the US Treasury.....
(Obama also took control of the Census). That left a huge paper trail. Donald better get ahold of that info ASAP.

BACKSTORY Soon as they occupied the WH, Obama placed his COS---
Goldman Sachs Wall Streeter Rahm Emanuel---in control of the US Dept of the Treasury.....
ponder that...... Chicago Rham was Obama's COS AND controlled Treasury the same time.

THE SMOKING GUN---WSJ REPORT-- On Jan 20, 2009 Timothy Geithner was appointed Obama's Secy of the Treasury. But within three weeks, the Obama White House tightened its grip on Treasury. Obama put his COS, Rahm Emanuel, in charge of Treasury---Rahm Emanuel's dual role was an unusual move. When he got to Treasury, WH COS Rahm Emanuel was so involved in the inner workings that the phrase "Rahm wants it" had become an unofficial mantra among subservient govt staffers, prostrate in obeisance, scurrying to accede to Rahm's wishes, according to Treasury government officials.

EXCLUSIVE: Obama's Treasury Department Spied on Flynn, Manafort, and the Trump Family, Says Whistleblower
The Ohio Star ^ | 18 May 2020 | Neil W. McCabe / FR Posted by Erik Latranyi

Obama’s Treasury Department regularly surveilled retired Army Lt. Gen. Michael T. Flynn’s financial records and transactions beginning in December 2015 and well into 2017, before, during and after when he served at the White House as President Donald Trump’s National Security Director, a former senior Treasury Department official, and veteran of the intelligence community, told the Star Newspapers. “I started seeing things that were not correct, so I did my own little investigation, because I wanted to make sure what I was seeing was correct” she said. “You never want to draw attention to something if there is not anything there.” The whistleblower said she only saw metadata, that is names and dates when the general’s financial records were accessed. “I never saw what they saw.”

By March 2016, the whistleblower said she and a colleague, who was detailed to Treasury from the intelligence community, became convinced that the surveillance of Flynn was not tied to legitimate criminal or national security concerns, but was straight-up political surveillance among other illegal activity occurring at Treasury. “When I showed it to her, what she said, ‘Oh, sh%t!’ and I knew right then and there that I was right – this was some shady stuff,” the whistleblower said. “It wasn’t just him,” the whistleblower said. “They were targeting other U.S. citizens, as well.”

Only two names are listed in the whistleblower’s official paperwork, so the others must remain sealed, she said. The second name is Paul J. Manafort Jr., the one-time chairman of Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign.

The other names Obama spied in include: Members of Congress, the most senior staffers on the 2016 Trump campaign and members of Trump’s family, she said. (Excerpt) Read more at ...


The “Members of Congress” being spied upon by Obama could be a goldmine of info. Betcha good money, Obama was spying on DEMOCRATS. Was Obama checking to see if Democrats were holding out on his share of the graft?
