A criminal IRS investigation into President Joe Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, seems to have called a grand jury back in May 2019, a subpoena given to JPMorgan Chase bank shows. The subpoena also asks for the bank records of James Biden, Joe Biden’s brother, which seems to be the first time another family member of the president has been connected to the investigation.
The document specifically demands info on related transactions between the JPMorgan Chase Bank which the paper says is the “correspondent bank,” and the Bank of China is the “originating bank.”
The document seems to show that as President Biden was having his campaign, federal prosecutors in the Attorney’s office had created a grand jury and were pushing for bank records connected to Hunter and James Biden, and two of their business associates Eric Schwerin and Devon Archer.
While it has been said before that subpoenas were given in a Hunter Biden during a criminal probe from federal officers, the level of detail in this document has never been revealed in the past.
The document, which is dated for May 20, 2019, is a subpoena ordering JPMorgan Chase bank to come before the U.S. District Court. “YOU ARE COMMANDED to be in this district court to testify,” the document — which is a subpoena to JPMorgan Chase Bank — says. “When you come, you must stay in the court until someone allows you to go.”
The document reveals a courtroom in the J. Caleb Boggs Building as the spot that JPMorgan Chase Bank officials need to come and commands a reply by June 25, 2019.
The specific people named by the subpoena are James Biden, Robert Hunter Biden, Devon Archer, and Eric Schwerin.
The document specifically says multiple times: “Don’t reveal this subpoena to any person or any third party.”
Hunter Biden revealed in a comment in December, 2020, just after the presidential election, that he was under federal investigation for potential tax fraud. At this time it was reported by CNN and Fox News that the investigation started in 2018 and was looking into if Hunter and his associates broke tax and money laundering laws. Reporting by CNN at the time said the probe was centered on Hunter’s engagements in China and other nations and transactions with “people who were of counterintelligence concern.”
