Top GOP Senators are now demanding answers after the Secret Service refused to hand over details about Hunter Biden’s trips to Kazakhstan, Russia, and China.
The Washington Examiner reported that Sens. Ron Johnson of Wisconsin and Chuck Grassley of Iowa have written to the federal agency insisting on access to “full travel records” for Hunter Biden. In the letter, they claimed the agency “hid names and other information contained in email conversations regarding Hunter Biden without any proper legal justification.”
“The USSS’s production contains extensive Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) redactions, which do not apply to Congress and should not be applied to this production. These inappropriate redactions impede our offices’ ability to understand the full scope of the interactions between Hunter Biden, his associates, and the USSS.”
They want the Secret Service to quit concealing information about Hunter Biden’s activities.
It’s well-known that he repeatedly traveled aboard Air Force Two while Joe Biden was vice president in pursuit of his private business deals with foreign entities. He came back from a trip to China at that time to announce a multimillion-dollar business agreement.
The outlet added that Hunter Biden ditched his Secret Service detail during a 2014 trip to Paris to meet with Kazakhstani businessmen to pursue an energy deal with fellow Burisma board member Devon Archer. Hunter had plans to meet with then-Kazakhstan Prime Minister Karim Massimov, who was recently arrested on treason charges – and the Secret Service is withholding information about this trip.
Hunter wrote in a message dated May 26, 2014:
“Vadim — I’ve chosen to carry on from Paris without the Secret Service. They are not happy about it, but it seemed far too complicated and unnecessary. Best, Hunter.”
The Gatewaypundit reported:
Hunter Biden received a $1.5 billion loan from the Bank of China after traveling on Air Force Two with daddy VP Joe Biden back in 2013 and the Secret Service has redacted documents related to that trip.
“We determined that even though Hunter Biden was a USSS protectee from January 2009 through July 2014, the USSS did not produce any communications regarding Hunter Biden’s travel for the years 2010, 2011, and 2013. The USSS’s lack of communications during these years raises questions given that USSS travel records show that Hunter Biden made trips to China and other destinations around the world, including, Russia, Italy, Spain, and Mexico,” the Senators wrote.
According to Secret Service travel records obtained by conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch last year, Hunter Biden took 411 trips across 29 countries between 2009 and 2014 while his father was US Vice President.
It was known that Hunter Biden took at least 23 flights through an American military base that is home to Air Force One and Air Force Two.
Hunter Biden is under a criminal investigation related to his taxes and potentially tied to his foreign business dealings.
He’s also been a nearly unending source of scandal for his father. His abandoned laptop has revealed suggestions, according to former Donald Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani, of “child porn” on its drive.
Now, Grassley and Johnson gave the Secret Service until January 26 to produce the unredacted documents and to explain why they withheld records for the years 2010, 2011, and 2013.
