The latest report from John Solomon is shedding new light on Hunter Biden’s relationship with foreign entities; revealing the Latvian government “flagged suspicious” payments to the former Vice President’s son in 2016.
“As the U.S. presidential race began roaring to life in 2016, authorities in the former Soviet republic of Latvia flagged a series of ‘suspicious’ financial transactions to Hunter Biden and other colleagues at a Ukrainian natural gas company and sought Kiev’s help investigating, according to documents and interviews,” reports Solomon.
“The Feb. 18, 2016 alert to Ukraine came from the Latvian prosecutorial agency responsible for investigating money laundering, and it specifically questioned whether Vice President Joe Biden’s younger son and three other officials at Burisma Holdings were the potential beneficiaries of suspect funds,” he adds.
“The Office for Prevention of Laundering of Proceeds Derived from Criminal Activity … is currently investigating suspicious activity of Burisma Holdings Limited,” the Latvian agency also known as the FIU wrote Ukraine’s financial authorities.

BIDEN GOES OFF: Joe Snaps at Reporters for Asking Questions About Hunter Biden
Former Vice President Joe Biden snapped at journalists on the campaign trail in recent days, with reporters increasingly asking questions over his son Hunter’s overseas business deals -particularly in regards to the Ukraine.
“I wonder whether you have a comment on this report on a court filing out of Arkansas that your son Hunter just made you a grandfather again,” asked Fox News Channel’s Peter Doocy.
“No. That’s a private matter, I have no comment. But only you would ask that. You’re a good man. You’re a good man. Classy,” fired-back Biden.
“How many times have you ever spoken to your son about his overseas business dealing,” asked another reporter.
“Here’s what I know. I know Trump deserves to be investigated, he’s violating every basic norm of a president!” Biden deflected.

GRAHAM SLAM: Lindsey Graham Says Hunter Biden’s Ukraine Deals Don’t ‘Pass the Smell Test’
Senator Lindsey Graham weighed-in Monday on the widening political scandal surrounding Hunter Biden and a Ukrainian energy firm; saying his business relationships “don’t pass the smell test.”
“I love Joe Biden as a person but we are not going to give a pass to what is obviously a conflict of interest. I believe Hunter Biden’s association on the Burisma board doesn’t pass the smell test. If a Republican was in the same position, they’d certainly be investigated!” posted Graham on social media.

Graham stopped-by ‘Hannity’ Wednesday night after another day of the Democrats’ public impeachment inquiry; saying the whole process is quickly “becoming a joke” at the American people’s expense.
“I would say check-mate, game over,” said Hannity.
“It makes no sense that he knows this now and didn’t know it then. This whole thing is becoming a joke… The Vice President said he never talked to Sondland about anything. Why didn’t he mention this deal the first time he testified?” asked Graham.
“This doesn’t add up. What are these phone calls about? I want to know if there are any transcripts between the Vice President and the President of the Ukraine,” he added.
