CBS News is turning on Democrat President Joe Biden and is starting to dig into his family’s “suspicious” business dealings.
The network is reporting that more than 150 “concerning” foreign financial transactions, involving either Joe Biden’s son Hunter or his brother James (Jim), were flagged by U.S. banks for review.
While CBS notes the transactions don’t prove anything illegal, they do show huge sums of money flowing from foreign nations, including Russia and China, into the bank accounts of the Bidens.

Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA) is demanding answers on the Bidens’ dealings.
“We have people with the Biden name, dealing with Chinese business people that have a relationship to the Communist Party,” Grassley said.
“I think James Biden was very much a part of this.
“These records we got are the first records that have ever been made public on this issue. Nobody else has them.”
Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) said:
“I want somebody to ask the questions of the Biden family that were asked of the Trump family — ‘What were your deals in Russia?’
“I want the same level of scrutiny.
“And if you believe this laptop is accurate and true, there’s a treasure trove of conflict of interest in that laptop.
“If you believe a special counsel is necessary to investigate the Trump family, how could you not believe that a special couple is necessary to investigate the Biden family?”

The documents also indicate that Jim Biden’s company, the Lion Hall Group, received payments directly from Hudson West III, a company jointly owned at the time by Hunter Biden’s law firm Owasco and Coldharbour Capital LLC, which Johnson and Grassley’s September 2020 report linked to Dong.
Other payments to Lion Hall were funneled through Owasco — nearly $1.4 million between August 2017 and 2018.
The money movement caught the attention of US banks, which CBS reported had flagged as suspicious more than 150 transactions involving Hunter or Jim Biden.
