(Jacob Bruns, Headline USA) Online records of President Joe Biden’s tax returns for the years 2016 to 2018—the time frame in which his son Hunter allegedly paid $50,000 per month in rent—have mysteriously disappeared from a campaign website, the Gateway Pundit reported.
Hunter has claimed on past tax returns that he spent $50,000 per month to remain at his father’s home in Wilmington, Delaware, where investigators recently unearthed several caches of classified documents from Joe Biden’s time as vice president.
Yet, despite Hunter allegedly paying $600,000 per year to rent his father’s home, Joe Biden claimed no rental income in 2016 or 2018 and nowhere near that amount in 2017.
It should be noted Joe Biden’s 2017 tax return on Schedule E only listed $19,800 in “rents received.” In 2018, Biden listed no rents received. https://t.co/jkTRw7m3Vc

Specifically, the tax records at Biden’s campaign page, JoeBiden.com, have disappeared, with the links from 2016-18 leading only to a donation page. Other years, such as his 2019 returns, are still accessible.
Several sources online suggested that the rent scheme may, effectively, have functioned as a money-laundering operation, through which Hunter funneled funds from his Burisma “consulting” work and other “wealth creation” endeavors that leveraged access to his dad’s political influence.
If this is true, then we’ve uncovered one of the most corrupt money laundering scams in modern American history
Looks like “10% for the big guy” was way off
It was at least 50%!https://t.co/h8MZ38CK8B

Hunter served on Burisma’s board for five years between 2014 and 2019, drawing an annual compensation of around $1 million from the corrupt Ukrainian energy company while Joe Biden was overseeing U.S. foreign policy in the region.
In light of Hunter’s expensive stay at his father’s home, leading House Republicans, including Judiciary chairman Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, wondered if he may have had access to his father’s illicit documents.
“The Committee is concerned President Biden stored classified documents at the same location his son resided while engaging in international business deals with adversaries of the United States,” Jordan and others write in a Jan. 13 letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland.
Fox News host Tucker Carlson further noted the mysterious happenstance on his show Monday.

“Biden set up a website called JoeBiden.com to showcase his own recent tax returns because he had nothing to hide—unlike Donald Trump, you could trust Joe Biden,” Carlson began, alluding to the consistent leftist assertions that Trump ought to have released his tax returns.
“Two years later the roles have reversed in a bewildering and pretty remarkable—and kind of hilarious—way,” Carlson said, noting that Biden is now the one hiding his tax history.
“Joe Biden has never had a private sector job,” Carlson continued. “For more than 50 years he has worked at your expense for the U.S. government. Yet, somehow, he has gotten rich in the process.”
Per Carlson, Biden and the Washington establishment do not want the American public to see how they finance their lavish lives.
“Joe Biden does not want you to know. So now, Joe Biden is the one who is hiding his tax returns. As of tonight those links have been deactivated,” he said.
