A famous former crime boss says Hunter Biden would be in line for 20 life sentences for his alleged financial crimes if he wasn’t the president’s son.
Salvatore ‘Sammy the Bull’ Gravano, a convicted former head honcho for the Brooklyn-based Gambino family, told Fox News the allegations facing the first son are are ‘beyond theft, it’s treason.’
His comments came after a bank investigator was alarmed by ‘unusual’ and ‘erratic’ activity in Hunter Biden’s financial transactions with a Chinese company in 2018.
The ex-underworld mobster said to Jesse Watters: ‘It’s mind-blowing. I don’t understand how the country is just sitting back listening to these things and no action is being taken.

‘There are so many guys I know who would go for 20 to lifetime sentences for this kind of stuff and when it comes from the President, Vice-President and people like that, it’s beyond theft; it’s treason to a country.
‘I remember when I was younger and was in the military, treason was something that you faced the death penalty for because you are robbing every man, woman and child. Every race, black, white, Hispanic, and Asian.
‘You cannot get a more disgusting crime than this. I have been hearing it over and over again and I don’t understand why there are no actions.’
The gangster, who has had two new Netflix docuseries based on his life, also said that he knows many people in media and the federal government who are not speaking up against the Biden family over the fear of losing their jobs.
As a veteran, he said he feels bad for those who served in the military and returned to see the government allegedly operating in this way.
‘Everything they gave for us, and we’re sitting back and doing absolutely nothing. I don’t care how much power they got on their side. We have the people. The people are the power. If we don’t talk, if we don’t say something, then we’re part of it,’ he said.’
After a while, the mobster deterred from his criticism of the Biden family and went on to explain how migrants were causing riots in the country, particularly in New York, instead of spreading love and respect.

He said: ‘I fight for a lot of things. The open borders, poor people pouring in there, invading our country by the million… and we do nothing at all.
‘We [the mob] did things. I don’t even want to compare. We were like choir boys compared to these people.
‘We always had a thing about protecting the public. I have friends in New York and family and they turn around and say “Sammy, we were so much better when the mafia was in New York”.
‘I see them lighting up the tree. These things are so important to me, not for religion, not for anything like that, but it’s so festive, and it brings love and respect.
‘There used to be hundreds and thousands of people lighting up the trees and looking at the Macy’s windows; it brought love to your heart no matter how bad of a person you are.
‘Now I’m seeing riots. I’m seeing things that are going on. How do you have the audacity to come to this country and do this.
‘And you getting away with this is mind-blowing.’
A money trail beginning in July 2017 snaked from Chinese oil giant CEFC – one of Hunter Biden’s joint ventures – into Joe’s account in the form of a $40K check, say Republicans
Recently, Republicans pushing for Joe Biden’s impeachment publicized an email from a bank investigator who was alarmed by ‘unusual’ and ‘erratic’ activity in Hunter Biden’s financial transactions with a Chinese company.
The money from the flagged transactions then trickled down to Joe Biden in the form of a $40,000 ‘loan repayment’ check from James and Sara Biden in 2017, say Republicans.
According to bank records obtained by Republicans, a money trail started with a $5 million payment from Chinese oil giant CEFC, a Hunter venture, through several Biden-connected entities, resulting in the $40,000 deposit into Joe’s account.
The Bank Secrecy Act manager wrote in a bombshell June 2018 email released Wednesday that Hunter’s financial transactions sparked concern over their ‘unusual’ nature.
Specifically, the money transferred from the CEFC payment into Hunter’s entities Hudson West and Owasco did not appear to have ‘any services rendered’ and serves ‘no current business purpose,’ the email continues.
In addition, the investigator raised the issue of China’s targeting of ‘children of politicians’ where they ‘purchase’ political influence through ‘sweetheart deals.’
Based on those concerns, the bank investigator ultimately recommended requiring a ‘re-evaluation’ of the bank’s relationship with ‘high risk’ client Hunter.
Chairman James Comer told DailyMail.com in a statement that the bank investigator ‘was so concerned about Hunter Biden’s financial transactions with the Chinese company, he wanted to re-evaluate the bank’s relationship with the customer.’
‘Even worse, we know that the sitting President of the United States knew about, participated in, and benefited from his family’s shady China dealings,’ continued Comer.
He slammed the White House for attempting to ‘coverup’ what he called ‘blatant corruption.’
Comer’s Oversight Committee is spearheading the probe into the Biden family’s ‘influence peddling’ operation as part of the larger impeachment inquiry into the president. They say that Joe Biden has been at the center of an extremely lucrative ‘extortion scheme’ between members of his family and foreign actors – including China.
The $40,000 check is at the center of their allegations. Both Hunter and Joe Biden deny all allegations of criminality.
WhatsApp messages from August 2017 previously published by DailyMail.com, Hunter demanded $10 million from CEFC and claimed his father was ‘sitting here’ next to him during the exchange.
Joe Biden has previously stated that Hunter never made money from China, and the White House has maintained that the president never benefitted from his family’s business ventures.
The Brooklyn-born mobster played a huge role in the prosecution of John Gotti, the Gambino crime family’s boss (right), by agreeing to testify as a government witness against him and others in a deal. He also confessed to being involved in 19 murders
Hunter faces separate tax crimes and firearms charges after a plea deal collapsed earlier this year. He now faces a full trial and could spend up to 25 years in prison on those charges, as well as find himself liable for $750,000 in fines.

Gravano was one of the first high-ranking members of New York’s iconic Italian-American mafia gangs, titled the Five Families, to break his blood oath and cooperate with the government on an investigation.
It was due to his testimony that Gotti and Frank Locascio were sentenced to life imprisonment without the possibility of parole in 1992 for the murder ex-Gambino boss Paul Castellano.
Apart from having two Netflix docuseries on his life, he was consulted many times for the 1997 biographical book on his life by Peter Maas titled ‘Underboss’.
