    Hunter Biden sent an email to the manager of his Washington, D.C. office building in September 2017 asking her to make keys for his “office mates” Joe Biden and Gongwen Dong, who he said was the “emissary” for the chairman of the Chinese energy conglomerate CEFC. Hunter Biden also requested that a sign be made for his office stating “The Biden Foundation” and “Hudson West (CEFC US).” In his email to Browning, Hunter Biden provided the personal cell phone numbers for his father and uncle, and suggested that Browning’s associate call them “if she insists.” Starting on the day CEFC...

    The United States proudly stands in its place as a “City on a Hill” – a beacon of honesty and fairness, for others all over the globe to emulate. This isn’t new. It dates back to the nation’s earliest days, when our Founding Fathers railed against the corrupt deals that were core to the British system of empire. Some of the colonies were deals between a king and a governing family, like the Penns of Pennsylvania. Both purchases and sales here in the colonies had to be managed by politically connected merchants in London known as factors. Whole industries were...

    Hunter Biden wanted to avoid registering as a foreign agent as part of a deal with a Chinese energy company, according to text messages obtained by The Daily Caller News Foundation. In a message to Tony Bobulinski on May 1, 2017, Hunter Biden also proposed creating a U.S.-based shell company so that the joint venture could bid on contracts with the U.S. government. A day after sending the message, Hunter Biden set up a meeting with his father, Joe Biden, and Bobulinski in Los Angeles. He claims that Joe Biden is referenced as an equity shareholder in early documents for...

    Many politicians have an embarrassment or two in their families. In my lifetime, Jimmy Carter’s brother Billy was the most famous example. Billy Carter ran a dingy, dreadful gas station (Amoco was constantly trying to find a way to force him to clean it up) and upon his brother’s election, he marketed a cheap beer – Billy Beer! - to capitalize on his proximity to fame and fortune. But it wasn't illegal. It was pretty embarrassing for Jimmy, sure, but it didn’t reflect badly on the president in the eyes of the law. There’s no law against being the brother...

    Another day, another Deep State participant outed. ICIG Michael Atkinson altered the whistleblower form to allow for second-hand information, which allowed suspected Schiff whistleblower Eric Ciaramella to present a bogus accusation on the President. Atkinson also oversaw the FBI lovers who altered the FISA warrant. This will soon be reported in the DOJ IG’s FISA Abuse report. Today we point out that Atkinson’s wife is connected to Fusion GPS. What a mess! Last weekend we learned from another leak to the Washington Post, that an individual in Obama’s FBI altered documents that provided support for a FISA Warrant obtained to...

    The Justice Department is increasing its prosecutions of alleged acts of foreign bribery by U.S. corporations, forcing them to take costly steps to defend against scrutiny. The crackdown under the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, or FCPA -- a post-Watergate law largely dormant for decades -- now extends across five continents and penetrates entire industries, including energy and medical devices. Among the companies currently under Justice Department review: Sun Microsystems Inc. and Royal Dutch Shell PLC, according to the companies' disclosures. At least 120 companies are under investigation, according to Mark Mendelsohn, a deputy chief in the Justice Department division overseeing...
