“Serious as a heart attack” – Now that the Hunter Biden laptop story has finally been confirmed by Big Media such as The New York Times and The Washington Post, after being suppressed and smeared as ‘Russian disinformation,’ the major liberal TV networks are slowly beginning to report on the Biden family corruption story.

CBS News just did a report on the ‘Hunter Biden investigation’ where they noted the feds subpoenaed Hunter Biden’s paternity documents, including tax returns: “They wanted every record.”
According to CBS, in December 2020 the U.S. Attorney’s office in Delaware requested all documents “regarding [Hunter] Biden’s income, assets, debts, obligations, and financial transactions… and all personal and business expenditures” from January 2017 to the present.
The case is being led by the U.S. Attorney in Delaware, David C. Weiss.
Attorney Clint Lancaster, who represented Lunden Roberts, a former stripper who filed suit against Hunter Biden in 2019 alleging he was the father of her child, told CBS News that FBI and IRS investigators asked for information about several companies affiliated with Hunter Biden, including the infamous Rosemont Seneca Partners, a firm with shady ties to Communist China.
“DNA testing has established with scientific certainty” that Hunter Biden is the father of Roberts’ child, according to an Arkansas court filing from November 2019.
CBS News reported that what the feds seem to be now looking for:
…tracks with a separate 2019 federal subpoena from the U.S. Attorney’s office in Delaware. The subpoena, obtained by CBS News, sought “all records, documents and accounts pertaining to all financial/banking transactions” between 15 business entities and Hunter Biden, the president’s brother James, as well as two business partners dating back to 2014, when Joe Biden was vice president.
Lancaster said that during the paternity suit Hunter Biden had supplied an “affidavit of financial means,” which detailed his finances through income statements and a breakdown of monthly expenses.
Lancaster said the tax records he and his client supplied overlapped with the time period of Hunter Biden’s foreign business dealings.
A retired U.S. Attorney told CBS News the actions described by Lancaster suggest an aggressive effort by federal investigators and prosecutors. “The whole thing is as serious as a heart attack,” said former federal prosecutor Harry Litman, who added:
“People are going in and out of the grand jury. They are trying to plumb the depths. They’re playing hardball.”
This isn’t just about taxes as Hunter Biden once claimed.
CBS News notes:
In recent weeks, it has become clear that the federal investigation into Hunter Biden’s business practices is broad. According to multiple sources, the probe is exploring whether Hunter Biden and his associates violated tax, money laundering and foreign lobbying laws.
