Investigative journalist Matthew Tyrmand helped spreadhead renewed interest in reports that the Biden family threw aside any pretense of caution to enrich themselves from their connections to former Vice President Joe Biden.
Tyrmand’s research and correspondence with Hunter Biden’s former business partner Bevan Cooney revealed that Biden and his associates received a $3.5 million wire transfer from Elena Baturina to Biden’s investment firm to set up a JP Morgan bank account.
The Treasury Department’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) missed this suspicious transaction. Tyrmand doesn’t know what led to OFAC’s oversight, but as he explains in an exclusive interview with AAN, “the flow of funds [from Baturina] is very easy to find,” adding “a Google search will give it to you:”
“I think JP Morgan is probably sweating since we reported this,” Tyrmand concludes. “They’re probably trying to look for the compliance person who approved this or find somebody they can throw under the bus,” especially if congressional hearings come to fruition.
Also troubling is the evidence that Baturina’s notoriety, well earned from her reign as Russia’s richest woman, made her a known entity to the State Department where her name appeared on cables as far back as 2010.
“This is dirty money, no matter how you slice it,” says Tyrmand.
The national security implications of Hunter Biden having business ties with a Russian oligarch like Baturina, who’s fallen out of favor with Vladimir Putin and stands accused by former U.S. Ambassador to Russia John Beyrle of conspiring with the Russian mafia, are clear.
On the other side of the Atlantic, Baturina has a history of trying to bring money into the United States. She reportedly attempted to profit from renewable energy proposals partially funded by tax credits. “I’m pretty sure the Nevada state legislature did not pass tax credits for the alternative energy sector so that Russian mob-tied oligarchs get tax credits from American taxpayers,” Tyrmand points out.
