Presidential candidate and former Vice President Joe Biden’s youngest son, Hunter Biden, is allegedly being investigated for money laundering with Ukrainian gas company, Burisma Holdings.
New documents filed in Arkansas court revealed Monday, Dec 24, that Hunter Biden is reportedly linked to several investigations involving fraud, money laundering, and a counterfeiting scheme, according to the U.K. DailyMail.com report.
D&A Investigations, a Florida-based private-eye firm, filed the allegations on Monday, in connection to Hunter’s paternity suit relating to Lunden Roberts, the mother of his baby.
The court documents that Hunter Biden wanted to keep privately alleged that the 49-year-old ‘is the subject of more than one criminal investigation involving fraud, money laundering, and a counterfeiting scheme.’
The private investigator hired by Roberts found out that Hunter Biden is linked to multiple criminal investigation probes.
“One of those purported investigations relates to Burisma Holdings, the Ukrainian energy company where Biden held a lucrative board post while his father, Joe, was vice president—drawing allegations of impropriety from Republicans including President Trump,” according to the New York Post report on Monday.
D&A’s claims accused Hunter Biden of creating “bank and financial accounts with Morgan Stanley” for Burisma Holdings for a “money-laundering scheme.”
The court papers alleged that Burisma transmitted about $6.8 million to the account between March 2014—when Hunter Biden joined Burisma’s board of directors—and December 2015.
The documents also alleged that Biden and other business associates “utilized a counterfeiting scheme to conceal” the payments.
The latest exposé occurred as Hunter Biden’s role with Burisma draws attention to the impeachment process of President Trump.
House Democrats claim President Trump’s suggestion to look into Hunter Biden’s activities with Burisma, as amounting to seeking foreign help for political benefit. They accuse President Trump of the abuse of power.
President Trump and his administration, however, contended that Hunter Biden’s appointment, about the same time former Vice President Joe Biden was the point man for Ukraine, given his lack of experience in the energy sector, warrants investigation.
The same month Hunter Biden joined Burisma’s board, the U.K. government froze accounts of Burisma’s founder, Mykola Zlochevsky, “under suspicion of money laundering,” the Breitbart reported.
The Breitbart also reported that in October a Ukrainian official with close ties to Zlochevsky disclosed the only reason Hunter Biden joined Burisma’s board was to safeguard the company from foreign scrutiny.
Given Burisma and Zlochevsky’s legal predicaments, and Hunter Biden’s appointment to Burisma for about $83,000 per month, Joe Biden’s political influence raised red flags.
The former vice president had publicly boasted about his role in threatening to withhold one billion dollars in U.S. aid, if the then Ukrainian president did not fire Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin in 2016.
Shokin was, at the time, investigating both Burisma and Zlochevsky for corruption. Since the onset of impeachment, the Ukrainian government has restarted its probe into Zlochevsky to include public corruption and embezzlement.
The Arkansas court papers not only revealed criminal investigations against Hunter Biden’s involvement in Burisma and a money-laundering scheme.
The legal documents allege that Hunter and three others tried to rip-off Sioux Native Americans out of $60 million from the sale of tribal bonds.
The court filings also disclosed that Hunter Biden owns a $2.5 million three-bedroom home in the Hollywood Hills, as one of his assets.
President Trump had demanded that Hunter Biden should be called to testify as a witness in his impeachment trial because of his role with Burisma. But House Democrats rejected the president’s suggestion.
Meanwhile, the young Biden is laying low in Los Angeles, as he is embroiled in the paternity suit with Roberts.
