Leaks by Senate Democrats could interfere with Hunter Biden probe, Grassley’s office says
8 Feb 2020 — #Swamp
The office of Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) said that recent disclosures from the office Sen. Ron Wyden (D-Ore.) could interfere with the Senate Finance Committee’s investigation of Hunter Biden, the son of former Vice President Joe Biden.
“It’s unfortunate that Democrats whom we’ve kept in the loop on our investigations would recklessly seek to interfere with legitimate government oversight,” Taylor Foy, a Grassley spokesperson, said in a statement to the Epoch Times.
Last week, the Treasury Department complied with requests from Sens. Grassley and Johnson for highly sensitive records about Hunter Biden and his associates.
Senate Democrats do not like the efficiency with which the Treasury is responding to requests from Republican senators.
“FinCEN must take steps to ensure that its partnership with Congress is free of partisan influence. FinCEN’s integrity is vital to its mission, and any appearance of favoritism could compromise FinCEN’s ability to promote national security,” the senators wrote Sens. Wyden and Brown in a letter to FinCEN.
On November 15, Grassley and Johnson wrote to the director of the Treasury's money laundering watchdog FinCEN requesting suspicious activity reports on Biden, his associates, and their businesses and clients. Per a source familiar, Treasury started responding within two months. pic.twitter.com/PLVIWNkZR6— southpaw (@nycsouthpaw) February 6, 2020
In related news, Sens. Grassley and Johnson are also seeking Hunter Biden's travel records from Secret Service. It doesn't sound very fun to be a Biden right now.
