WASHINGTON TIMES: DAVID BOSSIE: Bank records don’t lie: Bidens’ business dealings will be uncovered

President Biden and the Biden family business have a big problem on their hands: Bank records don’t lie. For years now, with the help of the corporate mainstream media, they’ve obfuscated, ducked, denied and dismissed their lucrative influence-peddling operation — hiding in plain sight — as one big outlandish conspiracy theory. But as Congress starts connecting the dots with critical evidence that has eluded the public until now, the old lies no longer hold water.

Even when the treasure trove of evidence on Hunter Biden’s laptop was first reported by the courageous New York Post, the Bidens and their powerful Washington allies perpetuated their big lie, this time with the help of former high-ranking U.S. intelligence officials, Big Tech social media giants, and even the FBI.

And for the first two years of the Biden administration — the least transparent administration in history — the White House was not pressured by the biased liberal media to answer serious questions about any of the corruption allegations swirling around about the Biden family’s business interests in China, Ukraine, Russia and other foreign countries. Even after The New York Times admitted in March 2022 — 18 months late — that the laptop and its contents were authentic, the legacy media continued to assist in the cover-up by keeping the story from “getting legs.”

But now that Republicans are in the majority in the House of Representatives, the American people are finally getting some long-overdue transparency and accountability. As with so many other major issues that the mainstream media has failed to cover adequately for political purposes, such as the origin of COVID-19, Reps. James Comer and Jim Jordan — chairmen of the House Oversight and Judiciary committees — are now in a position to provide a much-needed check on the once-untouchable Biden administration.

Recently, the Committee on Oversight and Accountability disclosed a $3 million wire transfer from a Chinese company by the name of State Energy HK Ltd. — in 2017, about 40 days after Mr. Biden left the vice presidency — that was sent to a Biden family business associate who then disgorged over $1 million to members of the Biden clan. These transactions raise big questions that demand answers from Mr. Biden and other members of his family. House Speaker Kevin McCarthy has indicated that there are 11 more subpoenas for more bank records relating to Biden pay-for-play business deals in the pipeline. So rest assured, this is just the tip of the iceberg.

These initial documents provided to Congress by Bank of America confirm that Joe and Hunter Biden have been lying about the family’s overseas financial entanglements for a very long time. In an interview with ABC News in 2019, Hunter Biden even went as far as to say that the allegations of corruption had “no basis in fact” and that he hadn’t received any money — “not one cent,” as he described it — as a result of his foreign business dealings.

Similarly, in a 2020 debate against then-President Donald Trump, then-candidate Biden told the American people that “I have not taken a penny from any foreign source ever in my life.” But the false statements don’t end there. Don’t forget that Mr. Biden claimed he’s never, ever discussed business with Hunter even though emails and firsthand accounts have contradicted him. He even called a voter in Iowa a “damn liar” for daring to ask about Hunter’s gig with Burisma in Ukraine, and just the other day, the president told a reporter asking a question about the new wire transfer from China that it is “not true,” even though bank records make clear that it is true. It reminds me of the old Bill Clinton approach, “are you going to believe me or your lying eyes?”

To make matters worse, as the biased media remains unwilling to cover the story and turn up the heat on the Biden White House, they’re in a full-blown frenzy covering District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s circus in Manhattan. Radical Democrat Bragg’s partisan drive to indict former Mr. Trump for a minor bookkeeping allegation for which the statute of limitations has expired should be viewed as nothing more than a blatant abuse of power for political purposes. The American people are sick and tired of this un-American double standard and the politicization of our justice system.

Every one of us should want to know if the sitting president of the United States is compromised — even left-wing operatives posing as journalists. But rest assured, by simply following the money like in the case of Richard Nixon and Watergate, House investigators are going to find out whom Mr. Biden answers to one way or another. In the end, the truth will prevail.
