    State of the Union via MSN ^ | 3/24/23 | Claire O'Hare
    Hunter Biden’s former business associate Tony Bobulinski testified that Hunter perjured himself in a closed-door impeachment inquiry interview. Bobulinski provided examples supporting this claim. He said Hunter lied about when he began working for CEFC in 2017, noting an interaction where Hunter demanded unpaid funds. “In Hunter’s transcript (Page 42), he states, ‘I officially began to do work for CEFC when the – when I received a retainer from CEFC in early – or spring of 2017.’ Why, then, did Hunter yell at CEFC Executive Director Zang in front of his entourage as I sat right next to him in...
  • Peru to 'correct error' that gave Cosco exclusivity in megaport

    03/23/2024 8:15:07 AM PDT · by ameribbean expat · 5 replies
    LIMA - Peru's port authority said it hopes to fix an "administrative error" that gave China's Cosco Shipping exclusivity over operations at the new Chancay megaport. The National Port Authority (APN) said in a statement late on Friday that it has requested the annulment of its own decision in February 2021 that granted Cosco exclusivity, through a judicial process. The authority said the legal process would not affect the port's construction in northern Peru and it still plans to begin operations at the end of the year. "The construction process and the future operation of the Chancay Port Terminal will...

    WASHINGTON - Robert Hur will arrive on Capitol Hill this week intent on turning down the political temperature surrounding his report on President Biden’s mishandling of classified documents, according to people familiar with his preparations. That won’t be easy. Hur, the special counsel appointed early last year to look into the Biden documents case, is expected to face intense grilling from lawmakers on both sides of the aisle Tuesday when he appears before the House Judiciary Committee, where the president’s allies are bracing for a new round of questions about Biden’s mental acuity. In a 345-page report last month, Hur,...

  • Republicans slam DOJ for dropping campaign finance charges against major Democratic donor Sam Bankman-Fried: 'So we won't know which politicians he bribed?'

    Critics are accusing the DOJ of sweeping additional charges against FTX founder Sam Bankman-Fried under the rug, after prosecutors said he would not face a second trial for campaign finance violations following his conviction last month. In a letter filed on Friday night in federal court in Manhattan, prosecutors said the 'strong public interest' in a prompt resolution of the case outweighed the benefits of a second trial. In his letter to the court, US Attorney Damian Williams noted that prosecutors introduced evidence about all of the dropped charges during Bankman-Fried's monthlong first trial, where he was found guilty on...
  • Wash Post admits Hunter Biden's Burisma board membership 'should have been a scandal' when his dad was VP

    The Washington Post editorial board admitted that the Justice Department has a "strong criminal case" against Hunter Biden, President Joe Biden's son, and argued that Hunter's involvement in Burisma was a scandal. "The Justice Department has strong criminal cases against Hunter Biden for allegedly failing to pay federal taxes, claiming false deductions and lying about his drug use on paperwork to buy a gun," the editorial board argued. "Congress, by contrast, lacks any reasonable basis for moving forward with impeachment against President Biden over his son’s dubious business dealings and personal conduct." The editorial board criticized Hunter for his involvement...

    U.S. — Hunter Biden is being charged on 9 counts of evading taxes on his international bribery schemes, according to an indictment filed in Los Angeles on Thursday. "The President's son made millions on foreign bribes and used the money for illegal drugs and underage sex trafficking. That's all well and good, but then he failed to pay his taxes," said a spokesperson for the DOJ. "Keeping money that is due to the government is the most heinous of all crimes and should be dealt with swiftly and without mercy." Official sources confirmed that Hunter became wealthy by exchanging national...

    FIRST ON FOX: A bank investigator responsible for detecting and combating money laundering warned in 2018 of "unusual" and "erratic" activity related to more than a dozen wire transfers of large sums of money to accounts belonging to Hunter Biden. In an email released by the House Oversight Committee on Wednesday, a Bank Secrecy Act manager raised concerns that the payments did not appear to correspond to "any services rendered," as well as Chinese efforts to target children of politicians. The investigator suggested the bank re-evaluate its relationship with the client. The payments from China ultimately funded a $40,000 check...

    Bob Vander Plaats, an influential evangelical leader in Iowa, endorsed Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis on Tuesday, giving his campaign a boost as he goes all in to try to win the first state in the presidential primary cycle. "You need a president who's gonna surround themselves with the best and brightest people versus having a hard time attracting them again. And someone who's actually going to do what they say they're going to do. And I just think he's got the spine to do it. And I think he's got the experience to win for us," Vander Plaats said on...

    The House Oversight Committee issued three subpoenas on Wednesday for President Joe Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, his brother, James Biden, and a Biden family business associate, Rob Walker. These are three of the most consequential subpoenas that House Oversight Chairman James Comer (R-KY) has filed during his investigation. The subpoenas are for depositions for testimony related to the House GOP's ongoing impeachment inquiry. Hunter Biden and James Biden are centerpieces of Comer’s investigation into Biden and his family’s overseas business. Through their investigation, they have found that Hunter Biden received millions from foreign oligarchs and companies. Walker was a business...

    Delaware U.S. Attorney David Weiss and the FBI restricted information-sharing with former U.S. Attorney Scott Brady, who needed assistance from the Justice Department (DOJ) to maintain open lines of communication, according to new testimony. Brady received support from the Principal Associate Deputy Attorney General’s Office (PADAG) to facilitate communication with the FBI and Weiss, according to a transcript of Brady’s testimony to the House Judiciary Committee reviewed by the Daily Caller. Weiss is the lead prosecutor in the Hunter Biden investigation. “This is between David and me, between Mr. Weiss and me. He and I would speak on a semi-regular...
  • Iran Floods Global Markets With Cheap Oil as Saudi Arabia Cuts Output

    Iran’s oil exports have hit a five-year high in recent months as the country sells more to China and other countries, adding large volumes of discounted crude to a global energy market already struggling amid concerns over demand. The surge in Iran’s oil supply threatens to upend efforts by Saudi Arabia and other major crude producers to prop up prices by cutting output. Oil’s value has fallen by about a fifth since late last year on expectations of a slowing global economy and a glut of cheap Russian cargoes. It also shows how Iran is increasingly circumventing U.S. sanctions as...

    Voters increasingly think both President Joe Biden and his son did something illegal when it comes to Hunter’s foreign business dealings. At the same time, over half think former president and leading Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump did something illegal in relation to classified documents and efforts to overturn the 2020 election, according to the latest Fox News survey. The poll, released Monday, finds a majority of 52% believes Trump did something illegal in connection to efforts to overturn the 2020 election and his handling of classified documents. About a quarter each believe he did something wrong, but not illegal...

    Illinois Gov. J.B. Pritzker has so many fans and friends that he receives a $30 gift at the rate of one every three days, but because of his job he accepts none of them, and rarely even sees them. The second-term Democratic governor and multi-billionaire has been lavished with hundreds of gifts from around the world, ranging from a $950 bottle of Japanese whiskey to 35 cents: a quarter and dime, to be exact. The state’s 25-year-old Gift Ban Act prohibits public employees such as Pritzker from accepting presents, with broad exceptions. Therefore, the high-priced hooch delivered compliments of the...

    Like much of Washington, the Biden White House was caught off guard Saturday morning when House Speaker Kevin McCarthy abruptly reversed course and announced that he would bring a clean bill to fund the government for the next 45 days. But aides weren’t terribly surprised. After all, they had assumed the government shutdown showdown would end this way at some point — with the main question being whether McCarthy would take his lumps before or after the funding deadline.

    Representative James Clyburn (D-SC) said Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press” that Republicans opened an impeachment inquiry against President Joe Biden because he was “being a father to his son.” Anchor Kristen Welker said, “Let me ask you about the impeachment inquiry that is going to unfold this week on Capitol Hill. I know you and your Democrats have called this pure politics. But big picture, they’re trying to see if there’s any link between Hunter Biden and the president and his business dealings. Are you comfortable of a family member profiting off the last name in this town?”
