As you well know, Hunter Biden has pretty much been the bane of his father, former Vice President Joe Biden’s presidential campaign. When it was discovered by the Trump administration that Hunter and his efforts as a board member for the Ukrainian energy company Burisma might be corrupt, his father’s race for White House took a lot of heat.
Fortunately for Hunter and the rest of the Biden family, Trump Derangement Syndrome runs so deep in the Democratic Party that Congress failed to focus on the Biden’s mishaps and instead chose to pinpoint lies about Trump.
However, that isn’t to say that the Biden’s and Hunter, in particular, weren’t given grief about the situation. After all, the younger Biden was paid at least $50,000 or more a month from a company that he had little to no experience in whatsoever. Plus, he was put on that board when his dear old dad was not only Vice President of the United States but also the head of foreign affairs and any corruption issues with the country of Ukraine.
If it sounds fishy, it’s because it was.
But that wasn’t all of Hunter’s foreign affairs problems. Soon after, it was also discovered that the young Biden has also been appointed as one of nine directors/board members for a Chinese private equity firm known as BHR Partners. Also, on the board was a child of John Kerry.
Hunter, along with his father, who was still vice president, took a business trip to China in December of 2013, where Joe Biden shook personally shook hands with the CEO of BHR. And to our surprise, Hunter left the communist nation a few days later with a $1 million board contract. (Did you catch the sarcasm?)
It was also noted by those in the Trump administration that BHR was not officially registered until just 12 days after the Bidens’ visit.
According to the Wall Street Journal, “Hunter Biden, a 49-year-old lawyer and the second son of former vice president, owns 10% of a private equity firm called Bohai Harvest RST (Shanghai) Equity Investment Fund Management Co. Over the past roughly six years, it has channeled $2.5 billion or more on behalf of its financial backers into automotive, energy, mining and technology deals, accord to interviews with people familiar with the private equity firm and a review by the Wall Street Journal of financial filings and other official business records.”
When this just-as-suspicious sounding deal came into the light, Hunter Biden announced in October of last year that he would be resigning from the BHR board as a show of faith and integrity. His lawyer, George Mesires, said that he would be officially resigned “on or by October 31,” although he failed to give any proof of this. Neither did he mention if Hunter would be relinquishing his ownership share of the Chinese firm.
Joe Biden credited this decision by his son as an act that “represents the kind of man of integrity he is.”
However, on Tuesday, files were found on both China’s National Enterprise Credit Information Publicity System (NECIPS) and Qixinbao, an independent registration information service on Chinese companies, that a one Hunter Robert Biden is in fact still a sitting board member for BHR Partners.
Now, how is it that a man of such high integrity, such as Hunter Biden is still named as a director and board member that he promised to resign from some six months ago?
You might say it must be a simple processing delay within the websites, that they simply have not updated their site. But then why does the NECIPS site say that the most recent change happened on March 24 to take Hunter’s former business partner Eric Schwerin off of the company list?
At this rate and with both the younger and more senior Biden’s history, I’d say it is much more likely that not so simple lies were told. After all, that’s what happened with the Ukraine issue, as well as when Hunter was found to be the father of a stripper’s child.
So the only thing remaining is to wonder when the next time Joe Biden will blow up on a potential voter about his son’s slimy issues.
