Chuck Grassley joined Lindsey Graham in opening a probe into Hunter and Joe Biden and Ukraine.
In this case, Grassley is asking the Treasury Department to hand over any documents they have on Hunter and Burisma.
They are looking for suspicious activity reports – made by financial institutions when some shady activity is suspected.
Right now we don’t know if any such reports exist around Biden and Burisma, but if they do this scandal will jump to the next level in a hurry.
Grassley gave Treasury a December 5th deadline to hand over what they have.
Expect Joe Biden to attack as he did Lindsey Graham after word leaked Lindsey was also investigating the Biden’s and Ukraine.
From The Hill: Two GOP Senate chairmen are asking for the Treasury Department to hand over any documents related to Hunter Biden and a Ukrainian energy company amid an ongoing impeachment inquiry against President Trump.
In a letter dated Nov. 15, Senate Finance Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) and Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Chairman Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) asked for “suspicious activity reports” involving Biden, Reuters reported Friday.
The documents do not include findings about any illegal activity itself but are filed by financial institutions when money laundering or fraud is suspected. It is unknown if any such reports exist involving Biden, and the GOP letter did not include any evidence that Biden engaged in any activity that would be covered in such reports, according to Reuters…
…The GOP senators said that Burisma was paying Hunter Biden as much as $50,000 a month, saying their committees were investigating “potentially improper actions by the Obama administration with respect to Burisma Holdings and Ukraine,” according to Reuters.
The two chairmen previously asked the State Department for documents related to Hunter Biden and Burisma. The lawmakers gave the Treasury Department a Dec. 5 deadline for the information requested on Friday.
