After the Senate Homeland Security and Finance committees released their new findings in a revealing report on Wednesday, Sept. 23, regarding Hunter Biden’s international financial ties, including links to the CCP, a widespread television coverage blackout has surrounded the shocking revelations.
Most media have downplayed the report, with news outlets that did report on it dismissing the revelations as not newsworthy.
According to Fox News, “Apparently, these new revelations were not newsworthy to many of the major news networks. CNN and all three nightly news programs on ABC, CBS, and NBC completely avoided the subject. MSNBC host Rachel Maddow was the only host on the entire network to address the Senate report but spent those roughly two minutes of coverage downplaying it.”
The investigation by the Senate committees over the past several months involved looking at Hunter Biden’s role on the board of Ukrainian natural gas firm Burisma Holdings, and his alleged “extensive and complex financial transactions.”
What was uncovered was much more than Burisma, as “questionable financial transactions” involving millions of dollars between Joe Biden’s son Hunter, his associates and foreign individuals—including the wife of the former Mayor of Moscow, Elena Baturina, and others closely tied to the CCP.
Rosemont Seneca Thornton, an investment firm co-founded by Hunter Biden, was discovered to have received $3.5 million in a wire transfer from Baturina.
The committee report goes on to say that not only Hunter Biden benefited from these transactions, but also other members of his family. They included Joe Biden’s brother James and his wife, Sara.
They went on a “$100,000 global spending spree,” with money Hunter provided through a Chinese bank account linked to the CCP.
These revelations are damning for Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden as the November election looms closer, as the report has uncovered that members of the Biden family “were involved in a vast financial network that connected them to foreign nationals and foreign governments across the globe.”
News outlets that did cover the story, such as the New York Times, Politico, BuzzFeed News, and The Washington Post, played down the report’s seriousness.
Headlines such as: “Republican Inquiry Finds No Evidence of Wrongdoing by Biden,” (N.Y. Post) or “GOP senators’ anti-Biden report repackages old claims” from Politico, and then this from the Washington Post, “GOP senators’ report calls Hunter Biden’s board position in Ukraine’ problematic’ but doesn’t show it changed U.S. policy,” were deceitful and a blatant attempt to distance Joe Biden from any wrongdoing.
On Wednesday, Fox News host Sean Hannity said that Joe Biden should be immediately disqualified from becoming President of the United States after the revelations about Hunter and the Biden family.
“A brutal new U.S. Senate report is now revealing shocking and new details about the illicit and corrupt activities of Joe Biden’s adult son, Hunter, and how he profited while his father was in charge of Ukrainian policy [while vice president],” said Hannity.
Addressing Joe Biden directly, Hannity asked, “Why did you allow your son to use your position as vice president as leverage to make millions of dollars from sketchy oligarchs [in] Russia, China, Ukraine, all over the world?
“Did you make any money from these deals?
“Is this why you refused to stand up to China and refused to support the travel ban, and you’d rather attack Donald Trump, who wisely implemented that travel ban ten days after the first identified case of corona?
“Was Joe Biden compromised?
“Is it because maybe he wanted more deals for Hunter? Why? So the family can get even more millions?”
Referring to the revelations as an “earth-shattering scandal,” Hannity said, “Imagine if this was Donald Trump Jr. or Eric Trump or Ivanka Trump or Barron Trump. Imagine the hysteria … Imagine when your name is Hunter Biden and your dad is running as a Democrat for president of the United States.”
