(DCWatchdog.com) – HAPPENING NOW: In a stunning admission, the Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation has acknowledged in testimony before Congress that Hunter Biden, son of President Joe Biden, that the large payments Hunter received from China and Ukraine could be from a ‘malign foreign influence’ operation.
As the Daily Caller lays it out in “FBI Director Admits Hunter Biden Payments Could Be Part Of ‘Malign Foreign Influence’ Campaign“:
“FBI Director Christopher Wray said during a Thursday Senate Judiciary Committee hearing that payments from China and other countries to Americans like Hunter Biden could be part of a “malign foreign influence” campaign.”
During the hearing, Wray was asked by United States Senator Chuck Grassley, “If the FBI received information that foreign persons had evidence of improper or unlawful financial payments to elected officials or other politically-exposed persons [meaning Hunter Biden], would that pose a national security concern?”
Wray responded, “Well, I think the kind of conduct you’re describing is typically something that very closely, through our efforts at malign foreign influence, it starts to shade into a blend of what we call malign foreign influence with potential public corruption. And it’s something we take seriously.”
As one legal commentator noted, Wray’s testimony comes closely on the heels of reports that the United States Department of Justice has stepped up its investigation of Hunter Biden and may be close to indicting him.
