Now it is being revealed that the U.S. Secret Service is strangely keeping his travel records redacted.
According to a message from Republican Senators Charles Grassley from Iowa and Ron Johnson from Wisconsin to the Secret Service director, the agency’s redactions of Hunter’s travel logs during Barack Obama’s presidency “harms our offices ability to understand the interactions” that Hunter engaged in while his dad was VP.
Hunter reportedly went aboard Air Force Two, the airplane used by the VP, to Mexico and China on what seemed to be business trips. His travel under the guards of the Secret Service was greater than that — although how extensive remains not known, because when Johnson and Grassley requested Hunter Biden’s travel records, great portions were blacked out.
“The U.S. production has extensive FOIA redactions, which does not apply to the U.S. Congress and should not be used for this production,” the senators said in their letter.
They also said the Secret Service “hid names and other details in the email conversations about Hunter Biden without any needed legal justification.”
In one instance, they said, the Secret Service redacted details pertaining to a person on then-VP Joe Biden’s detail who might have arranged seats for Hunter Biden and his business partners on a private jet from Paris to Kazakhstan.
“The USSS records that we had made public reveal that Hunter was in France from May 29, 2014, to June 7 while a protectee,” they said. “The USSS records do not say if USSS personnel or Hunter went to Kazakhstan in May or June of that year.”
There are even more gaps in his travel records given to these senators.
“We found that even as Hunter Biden was a protectee of the U.S. Secret Service from Jan. of 2009 through July of 2014, the USSS did not give any communications about Hunter Biden’s travel for 2010, 2011, and 2013.”
