Have you ever heard of James Biden? No, well he’s Joe Biden’s brother and seems to have been tied up in some of the same…”investment opportunities” as Biden’s nardo-well son, Hunter.
James, you see, along with Hunter, was involved in 150 bank transactions that have been marked as “concerning” and needed to be investigated by the banks involved.
And no, that’s not just GOP yelling about how terrible Hunter and the other members of the Biden brood are. It’s real. In fact, it’s so real that even CBS reported on it, saying:

As you can hear in the video, CBS ditched the pro-Biden rhetoric it has largely been parroting since the Hunter Biden laptop story broke and finally got down to actually investigating the subject, or at least interviewing those that have done so. Herridge, speaking on the issue, said:
“CBS News has learned that more than 150 transactions involving either Hunter or James Biden’s global business affairs were flagged as concerning by U.S. banks for further review. Some of those concerns included large wire transfers.”
“After a nearly three-year investigation, Republican Senator Chuck Grassley told CBS News he believes the president’s younger brother James was instrumental in Hunter Biden’s Chinese business ventures.”
Fox reporting on what the CBS report found, said:
“We have people with the Biden name, dealing with Chinese business people that have a relationship to the Communist Party,” Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, said during an interview with CBS senior investigative correspondent Catherine Herridge.
Grassley, who has been on the Bidens’ case long before the mainstream outlet decided to take it to the air, sat down with Herridge to divulge the latest goings-on and deliver his take on what these bank records could indicate.
“I think James Biden was very much a part of this,” he said, touching on the series of bank records made public this week. These records indicate several wire transfers occurred between James Biden’s company, the Lion Hall Group, and a Chinese-financed consulting firm, according to the report.
And that was just the beginning of it. Herridge then asked Grassley about what had been found, saying “These records come directly from the banks – no third party?“
Grassley not only replied in the affirmative, but has posted some of those bank records on Twitter; the large wire transfers in them are highly concerning.

Additionally in the segment, a clip was aired that gives a very fair depiction of the whole situation. At best, it looks bad. At worst…well, at the worst, the conflicts of interest would be very bad, as Fox reports:
In a clip that aired during the segment, Robert Weissman, president of the consumer advocacy non-profit Public Citizen, weighed in on the scandal, saying, “I think Hunter and James Biden should not have entered into those relationships.
“In the best case, those things look really bad. In the worst case, the conflicts can be quite serious.”
That’s just the latest revelation among a number of problematic details that have emerged about what the Biden family has been up to, some of the most concerning of which have to do with Hunter and Joe, as has been pointed out on Twitter:
Word games. They planned to be office mates in CEFC America but then CEFC collapsed after Patrick Ho was arrested at JFK, and CEFC chairman Ye “disappeared”. https://t.co/ukDDrj80Y8

In 2013 Hunter Biden hitched a ride on Air Force Two with then VP Joe Biden to China, where he had meetings for a new business project with CCP operatives. It's a long flight back to the U.S. from China, but I'm sure they never discussed what Hunter did while he was there. https://t.co/VPPFnvvEQ5

The whole situation is highly concerning and problematic. It’s not just that it looks bad, though that’s true, nor that the conflicts of interest are severe. It’s that it was continual and implicated a number of members of the Biden family. A proper investigation needs to take place. Americans deserve to know what the Bidens were up to.
