Joe and Hunter Biden hit with shocking new criminal accusations

Joe Biden

The House Republican investigations into the Bidens are heating up. Now they’ve reached a boiling point.

Because Joe and Hunter Biden have been hit with new criminal accusations.

As probes into the First Family intensify, more information concerning a potential corruption plot involving President Joe Biden, his son Hunter Biden, and Ukrainian energy business Burisma Holdings has come to light.

According to emails obtained by Just the News on Monday, Bud Cummins, a former U.S. attorney who is now a lobbyist, wrote to the top federal prosecutor in Manhattan in 2018 to inform him that Ukraine’s then-Prosecutor General Yuriy Lutsenko was willing to share alleged evidence of corrupt behavior by Biden dating back to when he was vice president.

The information was made public a few days after House Oversight Chairman James Comer (R-KY) declared that he had issued a subpoena “demanding the FBI produce an unclassified record alleging a criminal scheme involving then-Vice President Joe Biden and a foreign national” with a deadline of May 10.

In 2018, Cummins informed then-U.S. Attorney Geoffrey Berman that Lutsenko thought Joe and Hunter Biden “exercised influence to protect Burisma Holdings in exchange for payments to Hunter Biden, (business partner) Devon Archer, and Joe Biden.”

According to Cummins in the emails, there is alleged information and “John Doe” witnesses that could support charges that Biden, who oversaw U.S. policy in Ukraine as vice president, received a payment from Burisma founder Mykola Zlochevsky through an LLC.

On the board of directors of Burisma were Hunter Biden and Devon Archer, a former consultant to the Kerry campaign who was convicted of fraud in 2022 and given a term of more than a year in prison.

Viktor Shokin, the Ukrainian prosecutor general who held the position before Lutsenko, was in charge of an investigation into corruption at Burisma, but he was removed from office as a result of pressure from the world community and the vice president at the time, Joe Biden.

According to an ABC News article from 2019, Cummins communicated with Berman about Ukraine for years, but the emails he sent provide more specifics about the effort.

The claims also reached former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, who, in his capacity as former President Donald Trump’s personal lawyer, shared them with the media and requested a congressional investigation. After his government was accused of dragging its feet on military supplies to Ukraine while Trump pressed Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to look into the Bidens, the Ukraine issue finally contributed to Trump’s first impeachment by the House and later acquittal by the Senate.

After a quick phone call and a series of emails, Cummins reportedly claimed that Berman never responded. However, he did receive a notice from Apple that federal prosecutors had obtained data from his iPhone through a grand jury subpoena in 2019 — around the time of the impeachment inquiry that focused on Ukraine.

Hunter Biden revealed he was the subject of a criminal inquiry regarding his tax troubles shortly after the 2020 presidential election. The younger Biden has stated that he anticipates being exonerated of all charges.

Barely two weeks into his re-election campaign, President Biden has distanced himself from Hunter’s business transactions and stated last week on MSNBC that his son has “done nothing wrong.”

The Justice Department is reportedly close to making a charging decision, but House Oversight Chairman Comer has urged them not to indict Hunter Biden until Republicans hold a press conference on Wednesday to give evidence showing how foreign adversaries are improperly paying members of the Biden family through a “web” of LLCs in exchange for favors.

“There’s a whole lot of information here for the Department of Justice to use. And, by all accounts, I don’t think they’re aware of the majority of it,” Comer declared during a Fox News appearance on Sunday.

Republicans have been accused by Democrats of disregarding allegations of Trump’s inappropriate behavior while looking for “dirt” on the Biden family.

White House spokesman Ian Sams criticized Republicans in Congress in a statement for making “unfounded, unproven, politically-motivated attacks against the President and his family without offering evidence for their claims or evidence of decisions influenced by anything other than U.S. interests.”
