WASHINGTON, DC—In response to new revelations of illegal business dealings with China, The Department of Justice have issued an arrest warrant for former President Donald Trump.
House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer revealed on Thursday that on March 1, 2017 — less than two months after Joe Biden left office as Barack Obama’s vice president — State Energy HK Limited, a firm affiliated with Chinese Communist Party-backed energy company CEFC China Energy, wired $3 million to the Biden family.
“Clearly the Biden family made money off of illegal influence peddling but since it was during the Trump administration, we’re going to arrest Trump,” US Attorney General Merrick Garland said.
Hunter Biden and his uncle James Biden were paid some $4.8 million from CEFC China Energy between 2017 and 2018, according to prior reporting on Hunter’s abandoned laptop. This was on top of the Ukrainian money laundering the family benefited from.
“This is way too much evidence of criminal activity to not do anything,” Garland said. “But we can’t just arrest the Bidens because they’re in power, so we have to arrest Trump.”
