Jonathan Turley Calls for Hunter Biden Special Counsel as More Bombshells on the Way – Opinion

Since Hunter Biden was first investigated by the FBI, a number of his actions have been under investigation. Grand juries have heard testimony from witnesses and even a grand jury regarding Biden’s foreign entanglements.

But the problem is: Can we be assured of a true investigation when Joe Biden is in charge and we’ve already seen how much he has lied about the situation?

Just last week, White House communications director Kate Bedingfield claimed that Joe Biden stood by his prior statement that his son had done “nothing that was unethical” and hadn’t “made money” regarding China.

Yet, as we’ve noted, this is just demonstrably false based on the evidence that has already been adduced from the laptop, including the financial records that Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA) displayed on the Senate floor last week, confirming that $100,000 had been paid to an account for Hunter’s firm from CEFC, which Grassley termed connected to the Chinese government. The account also had a credit line that allowed members of the Biden clan to indulge in a worldwide spending spree. We noted that the relationship with CEFC had problematic ties to China. CEFC was also connected to Kremlin-controlled businesses.

George Washington University law professor Jonathan Turley notes how the media is now shifting to a new narrative that, while the laptop is true, there’s nothing to connect Joe Biden to any wrongdoing. However, Joe Biden is mentioned everywhere including Hunter’s payment of his bills.

In one email, Tony Bobulinski, then a business partner of Hunter’s, was instructed by Biden associate James Gilliar not to speak of the former veep’s connection to any transactions: “Don’t mention Joe being involved, it’s only when u [sic]I have met you face to face. [sic] know that but they are paranoid.”
Instead, the emails apparently refer to President Biden with code names such as “Celtic” or “the big guy.” In one, “the big guy” is discussed as possibly receiving a 10 percent cut on a deal with a Chinese energy firm; other emails reportedly refer to Hunter Biden paying portions of his father’s expenses and taxes.
Despite President Biden’s repeated claims he knew nothing about these dealings, Bobulinski has said he personally met with the senior Biden to discuss Hunter Biden’s business activities. These deals were handled by Bobulinski, who was chosen by the family.

Joe Biden, vice president, flew on Air Force Two to China with Hunter Biden. Hunter Biden organized for Hunter Biden’s father to attend some of Joe Biden’s business meetings. Hunter Biden’s financial interest in a Chinese-backed investment firm, BHR Partners, was registered within weeks of that 2013 trip. Yet, President Biden repeated his insistence that he did not discuss such transactions with Hunter Biden, an assertion Hunter Biden contradicted.

“It is hard to imagine a stronger case for a special counsel,” Turley concluded, observing that any investigation would inherently bump against all these conflicts involving Joe Biden while Joe Biden has denied that his son made any money from China or did anything wrong.

Turley continued:

Garland promised to keep the Justice Department safe from these conflicts, and not to allow any appearance of political influence. He now has a president stating that alleged wrongdoing by his son is “absolutely” untrue, including dealings possibly impacting the president personally and financially. Garland will not appoint any special counsel if he declines.

The conflict could be made more visible this week as Sen. Grassley promises that more information will drop this week. He indicated that they were concerned about blackmail attempts from countries like China.

You’ll be able to enjoy more popcorn if you grab your popcorn. It’s getting harder and harder for the “big guy.”
