Democrat President Joe Biden’s 2017 tax return shows that he received a staggering $10 million without any details of the source, congressional investigators probing an alleged bribery scheme have discovered.
The investigation by the conservative Federalist Society found one of Biden’s corporate entities reported nearly $10 million in revenue without detailing the sources.
The discovery has raised alarm bells in Congress as allegations of a bribery scheme involving Biden family members continue to mount.
House Republicans investigating the alleged bribery scheme have responded by demanding answers from Biden regarding his personal tax returns.
The president’s critics believe the sudden influx of money may be related to allegations of bribery against Joe Biden and his son Hunter.
The family has been accused of accepting bribes from foreign entities while Joe Biden was serving as Obama’s vice president.
Joe and Hunter Biden are accused of taking a $5 million bribe each from the founder of Burisma Holdings in return for shutting down a fraud investigation into the Ukrainian energy company.
CelticCapri Corp, an S-corporation for Joe Biden, was not listed on the president’s personal tax returns or campaign website.
The discovery is raising red flags as to why Biden would conceal such a large income source from the taxpaying public.
According to Breitbart, the investigation was launched after the Federalist Society took issue with a 2020 “fact check” article by USA Today that attempted to carry water for Biden.
The USA Today article claims Biden earned “$15.6 million … from speaking fees and book deals” between 2017 and 2019.
It adds that “more than $10 million of that total income was profits from Biden’s memoir ‘Promise Me, Dad’ and $3 million in profits from Jill Biden’s book.”
Following the citations within the USA Today article led readers to no details on the S-corporation.
The report creates, what the Federal Society referred to as, a “smokescreen.”
House Republicans believe they may have found a potential smoking gun as they race to uncover the truth behind testimony from an FBI informant.
The informant alleges that President Biden took $5 million in bribes from a Ukrainian oligarch.
The alleged bribe was given for assistance in the firing of a top Ukraine prosecutor who was investigating Burisma.
At the time, Burimsa hired Hunter Biden and paid him tens of thousands of dollars a month to sit on its board, despite his total lack of experience in the energy industry.
The firing of the prosecutor, Viktor Shokin, eased the path for Hunter Biden to conduct business operations in the country.
Skokin was ousted after then-VP Biden withheld U.S. aid from Ukraine until the prosecutor was fired.
Members of the Republican caucus told Breitbart that the latest evidence regarding the president’s lack of transparency is deeply concerning.
“The President seems to find selling out our country funny. We don’t,” said Rep. Nancy Mace (R-SC).
“If he’s serious about proving our allegations wrong he should release his and his family’s unredacted bank records and show the American people where all this money is coming from.
“The FBI can’t protect him forever.”
Rep. Eli Crane (R-AZ) told Breitbart that Joe Biden must come clean about the money in lieu of the alleged pay-for-pay scheme.
“The fact that there are credible claims signaling that a foreign national bribed the President of the United States with cash in exchange for influence over U.S. policy decisions is appalling.
“The American people deserve to know who paid the Bidens and what exactly they were paid for,” he said.
“Now that we know there are recordings of conversations Joe Biden and his degenerate son had with a Burisma executive, it’s becoming more and more obvious how the indictment of President Trump is meant to be a distraction,” Crane added.
“It would shock no one in this town if Joe Biden received millions of dollars from selling out the country in a bribery scheme and then hid that money in shady shell companies.”
