CNN is now reporting that Hunter Biden is under federal investigation.
They claim it has to do with his business dealings overseas as well as whether he broke tax/money laundering laws.

After pausing in the months before the election, federal authorities are now actively investigating the business dealings of Hunter Biden, a person with knowledge of the probe said. His father, President-elect Joe Biden, is not implicated.
Sinclair reported in October “that the FBI had opened a criminal investigation into Hunter Biden. CNN has learned new details about the scope of the probe, including that it is focused on China.” More here 👇🏼 https://t.co/kHSIBaD9Yi

Here is the initial report:
EXCLUSIVE: A @TheJusticeDept official confirms that in 2019, the @FBI opened up a criminal investigation into “Hunter Biden and his associates,” focused on allegations of money-laundering, and that it remains open and active today. More very soon on your @WeAreSinclair stations.

Many today are referencing my reporting of October 29, wherein a DOJ official confirmed the FBI had opened a criminal investigation into Hunter Biden and his associates back in 2019. At no time since then has @TheJusticeDept, @FBI, or @JoeBiden disputed that reporting. https://t.co/U41SNUdaZf

So, this probe was known about in October. That means that while the Mainstream Media was claiming that all these allegations were fraudulent there had been an active investigation into Hunter Biden.
Now, of course, at this point, we can’t confirm the Mainstream Media knew about this at the time. But that really doesn’t matter. This is just another example of why the Mainstream Press should not be trusted. They claim to be the defenders of truth and the fourth estate. Yet they missed what would have been one of the biggest news stories of the election cycle.
Whether they hid it or didn’t have it is nothing more than semantics. A press that didn’t uncover this story is not one the American people can rely on.
Remember, when it mattered the most the Mainstream Press was bullying you for pushing a story that was completely true.
For weeks leading up to the election, the media was aware that a federal money laundering investigation into Hunter Biden and associates was OPEN & ONGOING.
Almost no one would write about it.
Our requests were met with eye-rolling from most of the press.
And now here we are. https://t.co/FwIsAuqjXi
