Schweizer: Travel Log Investigation ‘Ought To Be Extended Beyond Hunter Biden’

The Republican committee chairmen, together with Senator Lindsey Graham, chair of the Judiciary Committee, are transferring ahead with their probe even after President Trump used to be acquitted by way of the Senate Wednesday, finishing his impeachment trial.

The Republican chairmen of two Senate committees wasted no time after President Donald Trump's impeachment acquittal Wednesday before opening up a new area of inquiry related to Hunter Biden's foreign business activities.

Senate Finance Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) and Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee Chairman Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) sent a letter to Secret Service Director James Murray Wednesday asking for "all dates and locations of travel, global and domestic, for Hunter Biden".

The request is part of a review being conducted by multiple Senate committees of potential conflicts of interest posed by Biden, 49, and his associates during the Obama administration. Democrats said the Bidens had no knowledge about whether Trump improperly pressured Ukraine to investigate the Bidens after Joe Biden began running for president. "The administration told House Democrats to go pound sand when their oversight authority was mandatory while voluntarily cooperating with the Senate Republicans' sideshow at lightning speed". During that call, Trump repeatedly asked Zelensky to investigate Biden's son, Hunter Biden, since Biden had used his position as vice president for his son, who held a lucrative position with a Ukrainian gas company.

The Treasury Department complied with a Republican-controlled Senate inquiry into Hunter Biden's business dealings in Ukraine and handed over highly sensitive financial records and "evidence' of questionable origin", a report on Thursday said. While in China, Biden arranged for Jonathan Li, the CEO of Bohai Capital, to "shake hands" with Vice President Biden, and afterward, Hunter Biden and Li met for what was described as a "social meeting".

The U.S. Treasury Department has started turning over confidential banking records related to Hunter Biden in response to requests from Senate investigative committees.

They noted that Hunter Biden joined his father on a flight to China on Air Force Two in December 2013, after his firm, Rosemont Seneca, entered a joint venture with China-based Bohai Capital to form BHR.

Manchin called the argument from Trump's lawyer that the President can do no wrong if it's good for his reelection, "false", "dangerous", "troubling" and "simply preposterous".
