According to a new report from Sinclair Broadcasting, the FBI opened an investigation into Hunter Biden and associates in 2019 on suspicion of money laundering. A Justice Department official tells Sinclair’s James Rosen that a criminal investigation is still ongoing.
Numerous questions surrounding the perceived conflict of interest between Hunter Biden’s business and his father, Joe Biden’s, influence have emerged. At issue, whether his father, the Democratic Presidential nominee Joe Biden, may have benefitted financially. Joe Biden has said he never took money from a foreign country nor was he aware of his son’s business dealings.
EXCLUSIVE: A @TheJusticeDept official confirms that in 2019, the @FBI opened up a criminal investigation into “Hunter Biden and his associates,” focused on allegations of money-laundering, and that it remains open and active today. More very soon on your @WeAreSinclair stations.

Meanwhile, Rosen reports that a former business associate of Biden’s, Tony Bobulinki, told Sinclair that he was interviewed for five hours by the FBI last Friday.
Though there have been previous reports that Hunter Biden’s laptop was subpoenaed by the FBI in connection with a money-laundering investigation, this new report is the first that alleges Hunter Biden is the subject of a current and ongoing criminal probe.
