Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, said a whistleblower in the FBI indicated the organization has evidence that President Joe Biden was aware of family business deals while he was in office — and may have profited from them.
Biden has repeatedly denied any knowledge of his son, Hunter Biden, or his brother’s controversial international business deals when he was vice president.
“I’ve never spoken to my son about his overseas business dealings,” Biden said during the 2020 presidential campaign. “Here’s what I know — I know Trump deserves to be investigated… You should be looking at Trump. Trump’s doing this because he knows I’ll beat him like a drum.”

Grassley said otherwise during a “Select Subcommittee on the Weaponization of the Federal Government” hearing on Thursday.
Recent FBI whistleblower reveals “make clear the FBI has within its possession very significant, impactful, and voluminous evidence with respect to potential criminal conduct by Hunter and James Biden,” Grassley claimed.

“These disclosures also allege that Joe Biden was aware of Hunter Biden’s business arrangements — and may have been involved in some of them.”

After years of speculation of corrupt dealings, a congressional investigation into the Biden family business deals was finally launched this week. House Republicans made the first official requests Thursday for documents from Hunter and James Biden regarding their foreign business dealings.

Rep. James Comer, chairman of the House Oversight Committee, sent letters to Hunter; the president’s brother, James; and their former business manager seeking documents and communications related to foreign business pursuits “with individuals who were connected to the Chinese Communist Party.”
“If President Biden is compromised by deals with foreign adversaries and they are impacting his decision making, this is a threat to national security,” Comer said in a statement.
The letters are the most recent action by Republicans in pursuit of the Biden family for what they have alleged is “influence peddling.”
The requests include any record “designated classified” and communications between the president or James Biden and his wife, Sara Jones Biden, and Hunter Biden from Jan. 20, 2009 onward, regarding travel and financial activity.
Republicans, led by Comer and Rep. Jim Jordan of Ohio, have also launched a series of inquiries into other parts of the president’s family, sending records requests to nearly every government agency.
Last month, Comer wielded the power of the new Republican House majority to seek information from the Treasury Department about financial transactions by members of the Biden family that were flagged as suspicious activity. Those reports are routine, with larger financial transactions automatically flagged to the government, and are not evidence on their own of misconduct.

Weeks later, the Kentucky Republican asked for a transcribed interview with Georges Bergès, the art dealer who has been selling Hunter Biden’s paintings for hundreds of thousands of dollars.
He requested communications between the gallery and the White House, citing Republican concerns that the younger Biden is trading in on his father’s name.
