Following an explosive report alleging that the FBI has Hunter Biden under active criminal investigation, President Trump's campaign called on Joe Biden to respond.
A Justice Department official confirmed that the FBI opened up a criminal investigation into Hunter Biden and his associates. The official said that the investigation is focused on allegations of money laundering, and it remains open and active. A laptop allegedly belonging to Hunter Biden was subpoenaed by the FBI back in 2019 in connection with a money laundering investigation.
Tim Murtaugh, Trump campaign communications director, said that it is not believable that Joe Biden has been unaware that his son was allegedly under FBI investigation since last year.
"We know that Joe Biden lied when he said — repeatedly — that he never discussed Hunter's foreign business deals. Tony Bobulinski, a U.S. Navy veteran and former Biden family business partner, puts Joe Biden in the room during the conversations," Murtaugh told The Daily Wire. "It's impossible to believe that Joe doesn't know that Hunter has been under federal money laundering investigation since last year. Impossible."
Senate Finance Committee Chairman Charles Grassley also tweeted about the situation.
Devon Archer, Jason Galanis, and Patrick Ho, three of Hunter Biden's alleged business associates, have all been convicted of crimes and are currently either in jail or awaiting sentencing.
