For over two years, Weiss has been investigating tax and financial issues connected to Hunter Biden’s foreign dealings. Biden has engaged in some of the most open and raw influence peddling schemes in history. That itself is “wrong,” to use his father’s standard, but not necessarily criminal. The Biden family has long been accused of such influence peddling generating millions in windfall payments. Even diplomats complained that his actions during the Obama/Biden Administration were setting back anti-corruption efforts in Ukraine.
The problem is not that Hunter Biden allegedly shook down foreign countries and companies for millions. The problem is that he may not have reported or paid taxes on all of that largess.
Weiss is calling witnesses to testify on Hunter’s lavish lifestyle and spending habits, including a former stripper who Hunter impregnated. Lunden Roberts spent years fighting to get child support, even as Joe Biden was running for president. A court finally forced Hunter to support his child.
Also called was ex-girlfriend, lingerie entrepreneur Zoe Kestan. She testified for five hours on Tuesday, the New York Post reported. Kestan reportedly detailed how Hunter would withdraw thousands of dollars and spend wildly during their relationship.
What is striking about these witnesses is that they are the type of witnesses that poison both grand juries and trial juries against a defendant. Such lavish spending details were used by the Justice Department against figures like Paul Manafort. More importantly, the testimony appears directed at showing that Hunter had far greater income than reported. That is a curious effort if Biden has “come clean” on simple reporting errors for taxes.
None of this means that Biden will clearly be indicted. Moreover, Attorney General Merrick Garland has thus far refused to appoint a Special Counsel despite the clear basis for such an appointment.
Weiss clearly has Hunter’s laptop, which details millions in foreign payments as well as lavish gifts and expense accounts. What is not known is whether Weiss has pursued other possible crimes, including potentially criminal financial transactions or being an unregistered foreign agent. Much depends on the scope of the investigation. The uncertainty is precisely why some of us have called for a special counsel. President Biden’s family is not only implicated in these dealings but shared accounts with President Biden are discussed in emails.
In the meantime, the Weiss investigation chugs along. It is a curious approach if, as suggested by some supportive legal experts, this is a relatively minor tax reporting investigation.

Let’s say Hunter asked his dad for some legal advice and paid him a dollar. As a lawyer representing a client the lawyer must maintain confidentiality of the information. Non disclosure, and efforts which prevent disclosure, are excused. Lies to avoid disclosure, no matter how obvious the lie, are mandated to maintain confidentiality. Fraud is excused. That fraud can include your lawyer instructing people who work for him to take no action to expose the crimes of his client.
Rule 1.6 is unconstitutional, a huge problem in prosecuting corruption, and evasive of any review as exposing the judiciary enacted an unconstitutional Rule must also be held confidential.
I will not be holding my breath…..
“The problem is not that Hunter Biden allegedly shook down foreign countries and companies for millions.” Excuse me but how is this not a crime? If he peddled influence and foreigners got their way to the detriment of the American people, how is that not criminal. Seems to me it is a HUGE crime!!
Where is Natacha now on Hunter Biden? Keep in mind that she first let us know that the Hunter laptop did not exist. Then she said that it might be his. Then, just like the head of the CIA she said that it was Russian disinformation. Now she resides among the crickets. I only used Natacha’s name because she is a quintessential example of a brainwashed leftist. It really wasn’t that hard to predict Hunter Biden’s future. The brainwashed leftist are praying to whatever gods may be that the Republicans will not regain the control of The House of Representatives and the commencement of an investigation of Hunter and The “Big Guy” will not come to pass. Just think, even the leftist media is concerned that the Democrats will lose control of the Congress and they are sore afraid. https://www.quotescosmos.com/bible/bible-concordance/G1630.html. I offer a word of advice to the Democrats. Just because you are paranoid it don’t mean that they will not be after you.
Putin’s perspective should be ignored and considered irrelevant, just as Hitler’s was.
The world was a better place when 1) the United States acted unilaterally against enemies, and 2) the United Nations did not exist.
Effecive and decisive, conclusive, decisions and actions were made my American leaders, and wars were actually won.
The United Nations ties America’s hands, preventing wars from being won.
The world was a better place when Trump was president. Joe Biden is a complete disaster.
Biden has utterly failed. From Day 1 everything he touches turns to sh*t.
Indict Hunter Biden.
Indict James Biden.
Expose the decades of Biden family corruption that is harming our country’s national security.
Why is Biden doing what he’s doing? WHO is making the decisions?
IMPEACH Joe Biden!
To answer your question of who is making the decisions, it is not the Biden presidency, it’s the JOR presidency. JOR=Jarrett, Obama, Rice
Klaus Schwab … it’s the Great Reset
Isolationists should be put into solitary confinement, if they like being isolated so much.
And there we see the Fascist busybody found in our leftists. Thanks for stepping up and giving us an example.
Turley misses something relevant.
It may not be that Hunter broke the law… (And yet again, he may have…)
But that its 1/2 of the Pay to Play where the ‘big guy’ gets his 10%.
And that’s what Turley didn’t say.
Catch Hunter on taxes… you’ve established his action.
You’ve established the ‘Pay to Play’ scheme.
Now you have ample grounds to impeach Biden and potentially others.
Ukraine is run by criminals? There were some in the British Empire who that America was run by criminals, too.
It makes more sense to confront a greater danger before a lesser danger, regardless of how far away it is, to prevent it from getting any closer.
