Re: Secret Service security for Hunter Biden on 400-plus trips

Here we go again. Good old Jon Solomon with another nonsense story to divert from the real news of the day. It will give Fox something to run to counter the breaking news  this evening about Trump and Russia.

Who really cares about Secret Service security for Bidens son. The SS provides security for all Presidents and their family. One thing for sure the SS was not paying twice the normal amounts for hotels stays for Hunter as they do with Trump and his family with all the stays at Trump Hotels. The SS money helps keep the Trump Hotels in business. Now that is a scandal.

 

Did all hear the news this evening. The Russian bounty program on American Troops ran all through 2019, and Trump was informed about it. John Bolton briefed Trump on the program. The Russians paid the bounty on the deaths of 3 marines in AFG.

Now you have the news John Solomon is trying to deflect from.

How does this diversion enhance Trump?

He has dismissed the plague in this nation as a little thing that will all go away by Easter, like a miracle!

The US has the highest death toll in the world, and here we are three months later from his hideous statements that ignored all warnings from the WHO.

Air Biden: Secret Service provided security for Hunter Biden on 400-plus trips during Obama years

 

The son of the vice president went on 29 international trips with Secret Service in tow, according to records released under FOIA to Judicial Watch.

Hunter Biden has already made headlines with his pursuit of global business, raising questions about conflicts of interests by landing lucrative deals in Ukraine and China while his father Joe was vice president.

 

And now it’s his proclivity for globetrotting travel that is garnering attention.

 

The son of the former vice president and 2020 Democratic presidential nominee in waiting used Secret Service protection on at least 411 international and domestic trips during the Obama years, according to records released this month under the Freedom of Information Act to the conservative watchdog Judicial Watch.

 

The records show Hunter Biden made at least 29 international trips between January 2009 and July 2014 and hundreds more criss-crossing the United States.

 

Five of the trips were to China, where the Bidens raised eyebrows in December 2013 as Hunter joined his father on an official government trip and pursued an investment opportunity in the shadows of his father’s work.

 

Six months later, Hunter Biden landed on the board of the Ukrainian gas company Burisma Holdings at a time when his father oversaw U.S.-Ukraine policy and the company was under investigation.

State Department officials testified at last fall’s impeachment proceedings that the Ukraine arrangement created the appearance of a conflict of interest.

 

While it is normal for the Secret Service to provide family members of a president and vice president with security details, Hunter Biden’s security logs stand out for the sheer volume of travel.

The FOIA covered 1,987 days of the Obama presidency (July 1, 2014 thru Jan. 19, 2017 have not yet been produced), meaning Hunter Biden averaged a trip once every five days or so during the covered period.

 

The Secret Service did not provide the cost figures for providing security for those trips, but it is likely to run into the hundreds of thousands of dollars since Hunter Biden went to places like Kenya, London, France, Spain and China, the newly released records show.

 

“Given the Burisma-Ukraine-China influence peddling scandals, Hunter Biden’s extensive international travel during the Obama-Biden presidency, including at least 5 trips to China, will raise additional questions,” Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said after releasing the records.

 

Indeed, the travel is under additional scrutiny. As part of the FOIA, the Secret service revealed that Senate committee chairmen Ron Johnson (R-Wisc.) and Charles Grassley (R-Iowa) requested the same records as part of their investigations into possible conflicts of interests in the Biden family.

The Secret Service did not indicate whether Hunter Biden’s travel was on private airliners or on Air Force One, Air Force Two or other government aircraft.
