Judicial Watch: 'Strong Evidence' Of Hunter Biden Criminal Misconduct In Ukraine

Hunter Biden, the son of former Vice President Joe Biden, is currently engulfed in a slew of troubling scandals.
And things are about to get even worse.
Judicial Watch president Tom Fitton says that Hunter Biden's business activities in Ukraine could land him in hot water with prosecutors at the Justice Department.
In an interview with One America News, Fitton said there is "strong evidence of criminal misconduct" by the younger Biden as the U.S. Treasury Department has begun turning over confidential bank records related to Biden in response to a request from Senate investigative committees that are scrutinizing his activities.
The Washington Examiner reported the documents requested by Senate investigators are known as "suspicious activity reports," or "banking alerts involving money laundering or fraud, related to Biden and his associates."
Senate investigators have also asked the Secret Service to turn over Hunter Biden's travel records, which Fitton explained could be the beginning of a broader criminal probe.
"This would be the basic investigative work one would do if you were trying to figure out where Hunter Biden was and who he was traveling with during the Obama presidency," Fitton, who recommended that federal investigators also look into Joe Biden's travels to China, another country where his son was working, said.
Democrats desperately want Americans to believe that President Donald Trump must be removed from office over a phone call he had back in July with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.
But Joe Biden's shady connection to Ukraine is far more troubling than anything Democrats claim Trump said on the phone call.
The allegations are that Hunter allegedly profited financially from his father’s time as vice president.
The details emerged as the Ukrainian government recently reopened an investigation into a company that once paid Hunter Biden roughly $50,000 a month.
That company, Burisma Holdings, is being probed by Ukraine’s top prosecutor.
Joe Biden allegedly pressured and tried to intimidate the Ukrainian government to remove the prosecutor from the case, and his plan actually worked.
Biden, who was still serving as the vice president, went to Kyiv in March 2016 and “threatened to withhold $1 billion in United States loan guarantees if Ukraine’s leaders did not dismiss the country’s top prosecutor [Yuriy Lutsenko], who had been accused of turning a blind eye to corruption in his own office and among the political elite.”
Biden’s plan worked, and the Ukrainian Parliament removed Lutsenko as the prosecutor on the case.
However, it looks like Hunter Biden still benefited significantly from his father’s actions.
If Biden used his power as VP to pressure Ukraine into removing the prosecutor who was investigating a shady deal involving his son, that would be catastrophic and maybe even illegal.
