“A Department of Justice (DOJ) official confirmed Thursday that the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) opened a criminal investigation into Hunter Biden and his associates in 2019, focused on allegations of money-laundering and that it remains ‘open and active,’ according to Sinclair investigative reporter James Rosen.
President Donald Trump’s campaign on Thursday questioned whether former Vice President Joe Biden was aware of the reported FBI investigation of his son Hunter Biden.
‘It is not at all believable that Joe Biden was completely unaware that his son was under FBI investigation since last year,’ White House communications director for the Trump campaign Tim Murtaugh said in an evening call with reporters,” breitbart.com reported.
If the FBI has been sitting on this money laundering scheme since 2019, this is troublesome. They may be concerned about former FBI Director James Comey’s release of condemnatory revelations concerning Hillary Clinton’s emails days before the 2016 election.
They may not have probable cause to make an arrest, and public disclosure of the alleged investigation could compromise the case. It is hard to tell.
