NLPC “blows the whistle” on government officials and interest groups engaged in questionable activities. NLPC has filed formal Complaints with a variety of authorities and regulators, including the Federal Election Commission, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and Congressional Ethics Committees.
NLPC supports government integrity in two additional ways: by promoting the First Amendment as the basis for campaign finance reform, and by promoting use of the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA).
National Legal and Policy Center today filed a 12-page complaint with the Department of Justice demanding an investigation of Hunter Biden, the Truman National Security Project, and the University of Pennsylvania and its Penn Biden Center, to determine whether they are in compliance with the Foreign Agents Registration Act for engaging in political activities on behalf of Burisma and Chinese interests.
NLPC’s complaint draws upon recent press reports that disclose incriminating emails and text messages on Hunter Biden’s laptop computer which is in the hands of the FBI and statements against Hunter and his father by Tony Bobulinski, Hunter’s partner on Burisma, the Ukrainian oil company. Bobulinski was recently interviewed by the FBI in a criminal investigation into activities that most likely involve money laundering, tax evasion, wire fraud, and other crimes, and implicates his uncle James Biden, and his father, Joe Biden.

A search of Justice Department databases reveals that Hunter Biden failed to register as a foreign agent while promoting the interests of foreign business partners in Washington, including brokering meetings with his father and other government officials, and RealClear Investigations has learned that at least one Senate committee is investigating whether Joe Biden’s son violated federal laws requiring disclosure of such foreign contacts.
The Obama administration did not prosecute Hunter Biden for potential violations of the Foreign Agents Registration Act, despite its much more aggressive pursuit of FARA cases relative to other administrations — including its opening of criminal investigations on no fewer than six Trump campaign advisers in 2016.
BlackRock and CEO Larry Fink just got permission in August from regulators in China to start a mutual fund business there, a next step in the firm’s ever-expanding portfolio of investment activity with the communist nation.
Biden might like the China-enthusiast Fink for the role, since the former vice president was recently implicated as a potential beneficiary of investment in a scheme cooked up by his son Hunter and his business partners with now-bankrupt CEFC China Energy. A 2017 email – captured in a now-famous laptop computer left and ignored by Hunter Biden at a Delaware computer repair shop, and then turned over … Read More ➡

NLPC today called upon the Commission on Presidential Debates (CPD) to withdraw Kristen Welker, NBC’s White House Correspondent, from moderating Thursday’s debate between President Donald Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden.
In a letter to the CPD, NLPC blasted the CPD for choosing Welker despite her pro-Democrat bias and for fabricating a quote from President Trump.
NLPC cited news reports showing that Welker’s family have been strong Democrat financial supporters and photos of her with her father posing with the Obamas at a 2012 White House Christmas party.
NLPC also cited its August 11 letter to NBC brass calling for the suspension of Welker as a White House correspondent for making up a quote from President Trump in reacting to the shooting on the White House grounds in early August. When asked by Welker if he was “rattled at all” by the incident, Trump calmly responded, ‘I don’t know, … Read More ➡
The Democrats’ strategy opposing Judge Amy Coney Barrett’s confirmation is clear: raise the boogeyman that she will overturn the Affordable Care Act and millions will immediately lose their health insurance coverage. Nonsense.
First, the case before the court next month raises a different issue than the one Chief Justice John Roberts decided and she criticized. Second, she hasn’t read the briefs or heard oral arguments, and thus no one can predict her vote. Third, the court can strike the offending provision at issue and keep intact the provisions that the Democrats are wailing about, such as coverage for pre-existing conditions.
Finally, in the unlikely event the law were to be struck down in its entirety, the court can, and likely will, stay its decision to allow Congress time to remedy the statutory defect as it has done in other cases.
This article by Alana Goodman appears today in the Washington Free Beacon. It includes comments by NLPC’s Tom Anderson.
Hunter Biden touted his family’s political clout to solicit a $5 million investment from China for his U.S.-based financial advisory firm, according to a court filing by a white-collar convict who claims he had an inside view into Biden’s murky foreign business dealings.
John Galanis, 77, argues that the younger Biden used his businesses as a “pay-to-play influence peddling operation” by offering access to influential people in Washington, D.C., in exchange for investments. Galanis, who was convicted in 2018 of defrauding investors and the Wakpamni tribal community, states in the affidavit that his son, Jason Galanis, provided him with details of Biden’s offshore deals after befriending Biden’s longtime business partner Devon Archer.
In the affidavit, Galanis says that Biden and Archer worked to secure $15 million for their financial … Read More ➡
