Is Joe Biden having the worst week ever?
We think so.
Biden’s campaign took a hit at the beginning of the week as reports from his racial past surfaced and he faced scrutiny with his dealings with certain politicians.
Now, Biden AND his son are trying to keep a major secret under wraps.
RedState reported that Hunter Biden has an extremely checkered history when it comes to business dealings and ethics.
But how does this affect the 2020 hopeful?
Well, according to reports, there’s some serious evidence showing that Hunter climbed his way to the top – rather quickly – when his then Vice President father used his influence to secure him positions in countries like Ukraine and China.
In a recent write-up ABC News places Joe Biden at the dead-center of this now scandal…
In April of 2014, the then-vice president led a U.S. delegation to Kiev tasked with rooting out corruption and advocating for Ukraine to diminish its reliance on Russian oil. The Obama administration had pledged aid money to support a fledgling Ukrainian administration recovering from a revolution that ousted the country’s previous leader.
“You have to fight the cancer of corruption that is endemic in your system right now,” Biden told the Ukrainian parliament during the first of several post-revolution visits to the country. “And with the right investments and the right choices, Ukraine can reduce its energy dependence and increase its energy security.”
Within weeks of his visit, Ukraine’s largest energy producer, Burisma Energy, appointed Hunter Biden to a paid directorship on the firm’s board.
Just months before, in December of 2013, there was a similar episode when the then-vice president led an Obama administration effort to tamp down tensions in the Far East. Hunter Biden disembarked from Air Force Two in Beijing alongside his father, ahead of a series of meetings between the vice president and several high-ranking members of China’s ruling party. Upon his departure, Joe Biden called Chinese President Xi Jinping a “good friend.”
Within weeks of that visit, Hunter Biden was doing business there, as a participant in a firm called Bohai Harvest RST. The corporation formed a novel Chinese-American investment partnership that involved such Chinese state-owned firms as the Bank of China. Reports at the time said they sought to raise $1.5 billion.
Coincidence? I’m sure that’s what the Biden campaign will claim.
But it sounds like a MAJOR violation that Biden won’t be able to hide from.
