The last we heard from President-elect Joe Biden about his son Hunter’s business involvements was that they “don’t discuss” business matters. We have since come to find out that is not the case, and Biden and the Obama administration were warned about Hunter’s gigs. The mainstream media still seems to find all of Hunter’s business irrelevant, and Joe Biden’s unethical involvement with any of it, even more so.
Fox News reporter Peter Doocy was able to actually ask the elder Biden his (current) thoughts on the matter; something no other news networks or journalists have cared to do. Asked whether or not he is confident his son did nothing wrong, Joe Biden responded, “I’m confident.”
Last week Hunter publicly revealed his “tax affairs” were being investigated by federal prosecutors. In a statement, he defended his actions saying, “I take this matter very seriously but I am confident that a professional and objective review of these matters will demonstrate that I handled my affairs legally and appropriately, including with the benefit of professional tax advisors.”
Oddly enough, Hunter’s statement was released by the transition organization for his father Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris. In a simultaneously released statement, the transition team stated the elder Biden is “proud of his son.”
All of the statements on earth could be released, but that does not change the fact that Joe Biden was dishonest about having any knowledge of Hunter’s business conduct. In a 2017 email obtained by Fox News, evidence shows Hunter requested keys “for Joe and Jill Biden, along with his uncle, Jim Biden, for space he planned to share with an ‘emissary’ for a chairman of a now-bankrupt Chinese energy company.”
In another email, “Biden wrote to the same Chinese energy company’s chairman extending ‘best wishes from the entire Biden family,’ and urging the chairman to ‘quickly’ send a $10 million wire to ‘properly fund and operate’ the Biden joint venture with the company” reports Fox News.
