More than 310,000 – and counting – people have signed a petition seeking an investigation into the allegations of Biden family crimes.
The posting on change.org by government watchdog Judicial Watch points out that there is “substantial evidence, from documents and witness statements, that the Biden family, including President Joe Biden, may have been involved in criminal activity involving, among other issues, foreign entities tied to Ukraine and China.”
After all, “Joe Biden’s son Hunter has already acknowledged that he is the target of a[n] FBI criminal investigation.”
The petition calls for a special counsel to be appointed immediately “because the Biden Justice Department is conflicted in investigating any matter that could implicate President Biden or his immediate family.”

Washington Secrets columnist Paul Bedard explained that Judicial Watch previously “documented Hunter Biden’s travels on Air Force One and Air Force Two.”
Judicial Watch chief Tom Fitton said there’s lots of evidence, and substantial evidence at that, in the case.
He noted Hunter Biden already is “on to his next corrupt enterprise — secretly selling his ‘ink blow’ paintings, in a scheme concocted by the Biden White House.”
Fitton explained he’s hopeful the number of petition signatures will convince Republicans in Congress to urge House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer to call for an investigation.
Legal scholar Jonathan Turley, who weighs in regularly on the daily news on his website, has said that there are a number of incidents involving the mass transfers of money to Hunter Biden and his uncle, Jim Biden, that are of interest.
Individuals involved in such situations include, he said, Patrick Ho, secretary general of Chinese oil giant CEFC, who was later indicted and has been connected with Chinese intelligence.
A former Hunter Biden business partner in the CEFC deal, Tony Bobulinski, has claimed he met twice with Joe Biden to discuss the firm, which has ties to the Communist Party, and “what I was doing with his family’s name.” Bobulinski said it was clear that the former vice president was in charge of the family business enterprise trading off his status.
Turley noted that the young Chinese assistant supplied to Hunter, JiaQi Bao, made revealing statements about the fluid expense accounts and level of support given Hunter by the Chinese.
Hunter Biden announced the Justice Department investigation of his “tax affairs” on Dec. 9, 2020, in a statement issued by the Biden-Harris transition team.
His father said through an aide at the time: “President-elect Biden is deeply proud of his son, who has fought through difficult challenges, including the vicious personal attacks of recent months, only to emerge stronger.”
The previous evening, WND reported two Republican-led Senate committees concluded that members of Joe Biden’s family engaged in deals with Chinese nationals who had “deep connections” to the Communist Party.
A post-election survey found more than one-third of voters who chose Joe Biden were not aware of the evidence linking the former vice president to corrupt financial dealings with China through his son Hunter. Had they known, according to the survey commissioned by the Media Research Center, President Trump would have won at least 289 Electoral College votes.
The Washington Examiner previously revealed how Hunter Biden got some pointed questions from a business associate when that associate was arrested in a fraud case.
Hunter Biden’s name apparently was used in the alleged fraud, but he wasn’t charged.
Devon Archer was. He was convicted in 2018 and the case was reversed but in 2020 an appeals court reinstated the conviction.
The report explained Hunter Biden and Archer were business partners and worked for Rosemont Seneca Partners investment firm.
That was before both were taking pay from Burisma, the Ukrainian gas company that provided scandal fodder for Joe Biden by paying his son $83,000 a month to be on its board – at a time when Joe Biden was responsible for Ukraine policy for Barack Obama.
Archer was the former college roommate of Christopher Heinz, the stepson of current Biden climate czar John Kerry and the co-founder of the Rosemont Capital private equity firm with Archer, the report said.
After his arrest, Archer wrote Hunter Biden, “Why did your dad’s administration appointees arrest me and try to put me in jail? Just curious. Some of our partners asking out here.
“Why would they try to ruin my family and destroy my kids and no one from your family’s side step in and at least try to help me. I don’t get it. And I’m depressed. Bunch of these [Asian partners] getting in my head asking me the same so just curious what I should answer,” Archer wrote.
At the same time, a report from Just the News cited emails from the laptop as evidence of Hunter Biden’s plans to wrap up a lot of profitable business deals.
The report said the plans being discussed by Hunter Biden and his Rosemont Seneca Partners included targeting the sovereign wealth funds of America’s richest allies, from Eastern Europe to the Middle East.
“I’ve been researching sovereign wealth funds lately in hopes of coming up with a plan to add another large manager (multi-billion dollar fund) to RSPI’s platform, without over-relying on the Taft Hartley channel,” Daniel McHale, the RSP Investments managing director, wrote Hunter Biden and a colleague named Eric Schwerin in an email dated Feb. 3, 2014,” the report said.
One of the more stunning business coups was Hunter Biden’s program of getting paychecks from Burisma while his father was vice president and in charge of Ukraine policy for Obama.
It came at a time when Burisma was trying to get rid of a corruption probe being done by Ukraine’s own prosecutor.
The company’s connections to the Biden family proved worthwhile.
In fact, Joe Biden openly boasted of threatening to withhold $1 billion in U.S. aid if Ukraine’s president did not fire the country’s top prosecutor, Victor Shokin, who at the time was investigating Burisma for corruption.
