The Democrats spent much of the 2016 election attempting to convince the nation that Donald Trump was somehow compromised by Russia, and was perhaps even some sort of Kremlin double agent. The bizarre conspiracy theory even spawned a 22 month, $25 million investigation by Special Counsel Robert Mueller that produced no charges against President Trump at all.
Still to this day the left pushes this wild hypothesis, believing that Trump is a puppet of the Russian oligarchy…making the latest news regarding Hunter Biden seem eerily prescient.
A new report by the Senate Homeland Security Committee indicates that Hunter Biden’s private equity firm received $3.5 million from one of Russia’s most “powerful” female oligarchs in 2014.
The report, which was made public on Wednesday, shows that Rosemont Seneca Thornton, LLC, a firm that Biden incorporated with his longtime business associate Devon Archer in May 2013, had a previously unknown financial relationship with Yelena Baturina, a Russian businesswoman now living in the United Kingdom. According to bank documents reviewed by the Homeland Security Committee, Baturina wired $3.5 million to a bank account controlled by Rosemont Seneca Thornton as part of a “consultancy agreement.”
At the time of the transfer, Baturina, a well-known construction magnate, was living in the United Kingdom with her late husband Yuri Luzhkov, a onetime mayor of Moscow. Baturina and her husband immigrated to Great Britain in 2011 after Luzhkov was dismissed from public office by former Russian President Dmitry Medvedev as part of a public corruption probe. The former mayor, in particular, was accused of using his office to approve more than 20 real estate projects linked to Baturina’s business interests, according to the Homeland Security Committee.
My how the tables can turn in just a few short years.
