Hunter Biden had a ‘financial relationship’ with the widow of a Moscow mayor who was ousted over corruption allegations, according to a report from Republican senators.

The 87-page report was released on Wednesday by the Republican-led Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee and the Finance Committee, and focuses on Hunter Biden’s business dealings in Ukraine.

The report did not implicate Joe Biden in wrongdoing, focusing instead on his son Hunter, who it said ‘cashed in’ on his father’s position by joining the board of a Ukrainian gas company.

It also states that on Valentine’s Day in 2014, Hunter Biden’s company Rosemont Seneca Thornton received a $3.5 million wire from Elena Baturina, a Russian billionaire and the widow of former Moscow Mayor Yuri Luzhkov.

WNU Editor: When I first read the GOP report outlining Russian billionaire Elena Baturina’s $3.5 million wired transfer to Hunter Biden’s company Rosemont Seneca Thornton, the first thing that I said to myself was …. that’s all?!?!?!? She bought him cheap. Her husband bribed and gave away tens of millions to get municipal construction projects in Moscow. This $3,5 million is peanuts. But the big question is …. what was she exactly buying? No one has given an answer to that question.

Update #3: Candidate Joe Biden was asked a question on his son’s business dealings this Wednesday. It did not go well (see below).
