It sure looks like there's a lot Joe Biden's Treasury Department doesn’t want us to see.
Earlier in the month, House Committee on Oversight and Accountability Chairman James Comer pressed Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen for information about business transactions of the Biden family and their associates that had been flagged as suspicious. Comer noted at the time that there are more than “150 of Hunter Biden and the Biden network’s international business transactions have generated suspicious activity reports (SARs) by U.S. banks for further review by the Treasury Department to determine if there is illegal activity or a threat to national security.”
And in response, the Treasury is offering up zilch.
According to HotAir:
The Treasury’s Legislative Affairs chief, Jonathan Davidson, responded to Comer, telling him to basically go pound sand. His letter wasn’t quite that blunt, but he declined to provide any records, saying that the Treasury would need to know more details about why the committee would need such “highly sensitive” information. His justification for declining the request doesn’t appear to be very substantial, however.
Davidson told Comer in a letter that he needs more details about why the panel is seeking such “highly sensitive” information.
The response may have come from Jonathan Davidson, but you can rest assured that he wouldn’t make that sort of decision without Janet Yellen signing off on it. And it’s a safe bet that the President was flagged in advance as well.
So much for that.
