While Democrats are ramming ahead with their plans to impeach President Donald Trump, the Department of Justice made two major announcements this week.
The first involves whether they would be investigating the allegations made in a complaint from a whistleblower over a phone call Trump had with the Ukrainian President-elect back in July.
The DOJ said in a statement that it would not investigate Trump over the phone call.
The second announcement pertains to former Vice President Joe Biden and his highly suspicious Ukrainian pay-for-play scandal.
On Wednesday, the DOJ released a statement saying the president has not spoken to Attorney General Bill Barr about the Biden family scandals.
The DOJ also said Barr has not discussed the Biden Ukrainian pay-for-play scandal with Ukraine or with anyone else.
In other words, it appears that the DOJ is not investigating Biden at all for his shady connections and potential illegal acts with foreign governments.
Below is a screenshot of the full statement from the DOJ:
This is very disturbing.
Biden is currently engulfed in two major scandals involving allegations that he abused his power as vice president to help his son, Hunter Biden, broker two major deals with China and Ukraine.
Breitbart reports on the Biden-China scandal:
The Biden bombshell is one of many revealed in a new investigative book Secret Empires: How the American Political Class Hides Corruption and Enriches Family and Friends by Government Accountability Institute President and Breitbart News Senior Editor-at-Large Peter Schweizer. Schweizer’s last book, Clinton Cash, sparked an FBI investigation into the Clinton Foundation.
According to an exclusive New York Post excerpt from the book, the Biden billion-dollar China deal occurred as follows. In 2013, Hunter Biden was managing partner in the private equity firm Rosemont Seneca Partners. The Chinese funds were managed by Rosemont Seneca Bohai, which did not involve Chris Heinz.
In December of that year, Vice President Biden and his son Hunter flew aboard Air Force Two to China. Ten days after the trip, a subsidiary of the Bank of China named Bohai Capital signed an exclusive deal with Hunter Biden and Chris Heinz’s Rosemont to form a $1 billion joint-investment fund called Bohai Harvest RST. The deal was later increased to $1.5 billion.
“The Chinese government was literally funding a business that they co-owned along with the sons of two of America’s most powerful decision makers,” writes Schweizer in Secret Empires.
Here’s the best part:
This is your daily reminder that 10 days after he returned from a state visit to China on Air Force Two, Hunter Biden secured a $1.5 billion private equity deal from the Chinese Government

Biden’s Ukraine scandal was kicked into overdrive this week.
Essentially, the allegations are that Hunter allegedly profited financially from his father’s time as vice president.
The details emerged as the Ukrainian government recently reopened an investigation into a company which once paid Hunter Biden roughly $50,000 a month.
That company, Burisma Holdings, is being probed by Ukraine’s top prosecutor.
Joe Biden allegedly pressured and tried to intimidate the Ukrainian government to remove the prosecutor from the case, and his plan actually worked.
Biden, who was still serving as the vice president, went to Kiev in March 2016 and “threatened to withhold $1 billion in United States loan guarantees if Ukraine’s leaders did not dismiss the country’s top prosecutor [Yuriy Lutsenko], who had been accused of turning a blind eye to corruption in his own office and among the political elite.”
Biden’s plan worked, and the Ukrainian Parliament removed Lutsenko as the prosecutor on the case.
However, it looks like Hunter Biden still benefited significantly from his father’s actions.
If Biden used his power as VP to pressure Ukraine into removing the prosecutor who was investigating a shady deal involving his son, that would be catastrophic and maybe even illegal.
