Two prominent senators who have investigated Hunter Biden’s various international business schemes for months already now are demanding that the Department of Justice investigate whether he financed a “prostitution or human trafficking ring” that is tied to Russia.

“What is the Justice Department trying to hide from Congress and the American people?” asked Sens. Ron Johnson of Wisconsin and Charles Grassley of Iowa in their new letter to the DOJ.

“These findings of potentially criminal behavior must be thoroughly investigated by law enforcement entities according to the highest ethical standards. Yet, due to your agencies’ continued failure to provide Congress with answers to its legitimate oversight questions, we have serious concerns about your review of this matter as well as the ongoing Hunter Biden criminal case.”

The letter was sent to Attorney General Merrick Garland, FBI chief Chris Wray and U.S. Attorney for Delaware David Weiss.

It’s already known that Hunter Biden is under federal investigation, likely for taxes but possibly for other issues like improperly representing a foreign government, reports have confirmed.

Now, Just the News explains more suspicions have come up because of Washington Examiner reports that “Joe Biden may have unwittingly financed Hunter Biden’s ‘participation in an escort ring tied to Russia.'”

That was at a time when Joe Biden “committed to wiring Hunter Biden approximately $100,000,” the letter said.

Just the News explained the senators’ concern includes questions “about ethical conflicts of interest with some of the law enforcement officials involved in investigating or supervising the Hunter Biden probe, which began in late 2018 and is focused on issues that include money laundering, unpaid taxes and influence peddling.”

They point out they had written Weiss about some concerns, without getting a response. That concern was that one of the DOJ executives had possible conflicts with the Hunter Biden criminal case “in light of his prior working relationship with Hunter Biden’s criminal defense attorney.”

Just the News reported, “Johnson and Grassley conducted an extensive investigation for years into Hunter Biden’s overseas business dealings, concluding they posed serious conflicts of interests and national security concerns that potentially compromised his father’s dealings with countries like Russia, China and Ukraine.

“They also made public Suspicious Activity Reports from banks to the government flagging certain Hunter Biden-tied transactions for possible money laundering, including to Russian and Ukrainian women tied to a suspected sex trafficking operation.”

The senators want the letter recipients to start answering questions including those about whether the FBI is investigating Hunter Biden “for criminal violations,” and if the U.S. “briefed” Hunter Biden over his “close financial associations with individuals linked to the communist Chinese government and other foreign governments.”
