Last Thursday night, Jill Biden, President-elect’s wife, refused to answer questions related to the news that her stepson, Hunter Biden, is under federal criminal investigation due to his foreign business dealings. 

A reporter asked Jill Biden his comment about the news about Hunter Biden. However, security came up and “shooed” the reporter away as Jill Biden refused to answer the question. 

Allie Raffa, Fox News reporter, said that Joe Biden was in front of the media every day this week. However, he did not leave his home the day after the news broke that Hunter Biden was under federal criminal investigation. 

In the months during the campaign trail, Joe Biden have been avoiding answering the questions about his son’s overseas business dealings when he was still sitting as the vice president. He also refused to comment about the issue that had been pressed on Hunter Biden, after his laptop was placed in the hands of FBI agents.

A separate report from Politico indicated that the ongoing criminal investigation against Hunter Biden is more significant than what he previously claimed as something about his taxes. 

Politico reported, “In addition to Delaware, the securities fraud unit in the Southern District of New York also scrutinized Hunter Biden’s finances, according to the person with direct knowledge of the investigation,” 

The report continued by saying that said person claimed that last year, investigators in Washington and Delaware probed the potential money laundering that the younger Biden is probably involved in together with his foreign ties. 

Last Wednesday, the Associated Press reported that the investigation against Hunter Biden existed even though many media outlets refused to say anything about the matter, particularly his dealings with Ukraine and China ahead of the election. 

Said investigation by authorities was launched before Joe Biden even announced his bid to run for the presidency. However, the movement of authorities investigating the matter was stopped at some point because of the Justice Department’s alleged practice against conducting overt investigative actions during the time of the election. 

Despite the reports that said investigations had been ongoing for a while now, Hunter Biden himself claimed that he only learned about it last Tuesday. He released a statement that urged media outlets to look into it and acknowledge his shady business dealings finally. 

CNN also reported that government authorities are investigating “multiple financial issues.” Including them is whether or not Hunter Biden violated tax laws and money laundering laws when he conducted his business dealings in foreign countries, particularly in China. 

In addition to the reports about Hunter Biden’s federal criminal investigation, Politico also reported that James Biden, Joe Biden’s brother, was also caught in a separate federal criminal investigation. 

In the said report by Politico, they said that federal authorities in the Western District of Pennsylvania are doing a criminal investigation of the hospital business in which James Biden was involved. Federal officials also asked questions about Jame Biden’s role in the industry. 

Federal authorities were investigating a healthcare company that has ties to Joe Biden’s younger brother, James Biden. Said report comes after the news that Hunter Biden is under federal criminal investigation. 

The U.S. attorney’s office for the Western District of Pennsylvania is doing a criminal investigation into Americore Health, and FBI agents have been asking about Jame Biden’s involvement in it. 

Americore Health operates a string of hospitals all across Arkansas, Pennsylvania, and Missouri. The company allegedly gave a six-figure loan to James Biden, intensifying its descent into bankruptcy in December 2019. 

James Biden got close to the company’s executives by ensuring them access to Joe Biden, who was then sitting as the Vice President of the United States in 2017 and 2018. James also promised a large investment from a donor in the Middle East to the then flailing healthcare company. However, according to former business contacts of Biden, this never materialized.
