Wednesday, the U.S. Treasury Department denied a request by House Republicans to review “suspicious activity reports” on foreign banking and other business transactions involving the Biden crime family. According to numerous media reports, this appears to be a cover-up designed to shield President Joe Biden, a Democrat.
“NEW: US Treasury denies Republicans’ request for Hunter Biden records. Hunter used classified material to profit overseas and our government is covering for him. Pure corruption,” Collin Rugg remarked on Twitter.
The letter contains the following:
Dear Secretary Yellen:
The Committee on Oversight and Accountability is investigating President Biden’s involvement in his family’s foreign business practices and international influence peddling schemes. During the 117th Congress, the Department of the Treasury (Treasury) refused our requests to provide information about the Biden family, including Suspicious Activity Reports (SARs) generated by banks that flagged the suspicious financial activities of Robert Hunter Biden, James Biden, Biden family associates, and their related companies.
The Committee seeks these SARs in addition to other data.
The Committee is examining Vice President Biden’s knowledge and involvement in these plans to see if he has jeopardized the national security of the American people. In addition, we will consider the development of legislation to enhance federal ethical regulations pertaining to employees’ families. In addition, we will evaluate federal laws and regulations and provide suggestions to ensure that financial institutions have the appropriate internal controls and compliance processes to inform federal agencies of suspected money laundering behavior. Consequently, we resubmit this request for specific data and information held by Treasury.
To aid our inquiry, please submit the following papers and information by January 25, 2023 at the latest:
