The timeline of the government’s knowledge of the alleged wrongdoing by the Biden family has raised concerns among conservatives about the lack of action taken by law enforcement agencies. Despite warnings from whistleblowers and lawmakers, it appears that government agencies have shown little interest in pursuing evidence related to these allegations.
The timeline begins as far back as 2009, when Joe Biden was vice president and received Secret Service protection. During this time, Hunter Biden was also a U.S. Secret Service protectee. In 2014, Hunter joined the board of directors of Burisma, a Ukrainian energy company, raising concerns about conflicts of interest.
In 2015, senior State Department officials expressed concerns about Hunter Biden’s role in Burisma and its potential impact on U.S. policy in Ukraine. The following years saw various reports and allegations related to bribery and corruption involving the Biden family.
Despite these concerns and reports, government agencies appeared to be uninterested in investigating the matter. It wasn’t until December 2019 that the FBI gained possession of Hunter Biden’s laptop, which contained potentially damaging information.
Throughout 2020, there were conflicting reports about the laptop, with some claiming it was part of a Russian disinformation campaign. The FBI’s refusal to answer direct questions about the laptop’s authenticity raised further suspicions among conservatives.
In 2023, former Obama White House stenographer Mike McCormick submitted a tip to the FBI alleging that Joe Biden committed crimes in Ukraine in conspiracy with current national security adviser Jake Sullivan. Senator Chuck Grassley also made public an FBI informant form alleging bribery involving Joe and Hunter Biden.
Conservatives are troubled by the lack of action taken by law enforcement agencies despite mounting evidence of alleged wrongdoing by the Biden family. The timeline suggests a pattern of inaction and raises questions about the impartiality and effectiveness of government agencies in pursuing potential corruption cases.
