GOP Sens. Chuck Grassley and Ron Johnson are asking the Secret Service for un-redacted travel information for Hunter Biden when his father, President Joe Biden, was vice president, arguing redacted copies “impede our offices’ ability to understand the full scope of the interactions” between Hunter Biden his associates and the federal law enforcement agency.
The Iowa and Wisconsin senators, respectively, made the request in a letter Tuesday to the federal agency, whose primary duties including protecting the president.
“The USSS’s production contains extensive Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) redactions, which do not apply to Congress and should not be applied to this production,” they write. “These inappropriate redactions impede our offices’ ability to understand the full scope of the interactions between Hunter Biden, his associates, and the USSS.”
Hunter Biden’s international business dealings, particularly those in Ukraine while his father was vice president, were of particular interest during the 2020 presidential election cycle.
The senators also argue in the letter the Secret Service “hid names and other information contained in email conversations regarding Hunter Biden without any proper legal justification.”
In addition, the letter describes a specific instance in which the redacted documents appear to protect an individual on then-Vice President Biden’s detail who appeared to have been coordinating seats on a private flight from Paris to Kazakhstan for Hunter Biden and his business associates.
“The USSS records that we previously made public show that Hunter Biden was in Paris, France from May 29, 2014, to June 7, 2014, while a protectee,” they write. “The USSS records do not show whether USSS personnel or Hunter Biden traveled to Kazakhstan in May or June 2014.”
Furthermore, the letter states the Secret Service has not made available any communications pertaining to Hunter Biden’s travel records from 2010-2011 and 2013.”The USSS’s lack of communications during these years raises questions […]
Will America-First News Outlets Make it to 2023?
Things are looking grim for conservative and populist news sites.
There’s something happening behind the scenes at several popular conservative news outlets. 2021 was bad, but 2022 is proving to be disastrous for news sites that aren’t “playing ball” with the corporate media narrative. It’s being said that advertisers are cracking down, forcing some of the biggest ad networks like Google and Yahoo to pull their inventory from conservative outlets. This has had two major effects. First, it has cooled most conservative outlets from discussing “taboo” topics like Pandemic Panic Theater, voter fraud, or The Great Reset. Second, it has isolated those ad networks that aren’t playing ball.
Certain topics are anathema for most ad networks. Speaking out against vaccines or vaccine mandates is a certain path to being demonetized. Highlighting voter fraud in the 2020 and future elections is another instant advertising death penalty. Throw in truthful stories about climate change hysteria, Critical Race Theory, and the border crisis and it’s easy to understand how difficult it is for America-First news outlets to spread the facts, share conservative opinions, and still pay the bills.
Without naming names, I have been told of several news outlets who have been forced to either consolidate with larger organizations or who have backed down on covering certain topics out of fear of being “canceled” by the ad networks. I get it. This is a business for many of us and it’s not very profitable. Those of us who do this for a living are often barely squeaking by, so loss of additional revenue can often mean being forced to make cuts. That means not being able to cover the topics properly. Its a Catch-22: Tell the truth and lose the money necessary to keep telling the truth, or avoid the truth and make enough money to survive. Those who have chosen survival simply aren’t able to spread the truth properly.
We will never avoid the truth. The Lord will provide if it is His will. Our job is simply to share the facts, spread the Gospel, and educate as many Americans as possible while exposing the forces of evil.
To those who have the means, we ask that you please donate. We have options available now, but there is no telling when those options will cancel us. We just launched a new GiveSendGo page. We also have our GivingFuel page. There have been many who have been canceled by PayPal, but for now it’s still an option. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to get the truth to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
Thank you, and God Bless!
