Hunter Biden Has Big Problems – This Time With China

Hunter Biden is one inconvenient presidential son. Whether it’s his business dealings, a cursed laptop, drug addiction, or exploits with women, he makes news for the wrong reasons.

His father has defended him for being one of the “smartest guys” he knows. But now the younger Biden is in another mess, this time for his entrepreneurship record with Chinese companies. This alleged shady relationship has followed him around like a dark cloud.

Democrats want his political opponents and the media to move on from Hunter’s laptop. They believe that there are more important national problems to address than re-litigating alleged influence peddling by Hunter.

The Left-Centered Media Is Even Covering the Scandal

But even the most liberal publications such as USA Today and CNN are posing questions for Hunter and echoing and enhancing a Republican investigation into his Chinese business activities. House GOP members have zeroed in on it with a microscope.

The House Oversight and Accountability Committee is looking at payments made to Hunter and other family members from Chinese companies. The committee chair, Kentucky’s James Comer, believes that the Biden cabal has received $1.3 million that flowed through a family business associate named Rob Walker and eventually most of that total went into the bank accounts of Hunter, James Biden (the president’s brother), and Hallie Biden (the late Beau Biden’s wife).

Comer is suspicious of the amount of money and is not sure how the Biden’s did the work to warrant such a high level of payment.

The congressman has focused on bank records from 2015 to 2017. This is when the elder Biden was vice president and into the first year after he left office. On March 1, 2017, State Energy HK Limited, a Chinese energy company, wired $3 million to a company associated with Rob Walker. Then Walker disbursed funds to James Biden and Hunter, plus $25,000 to Hallie Biden, who was then serving as a school counselor.

Biden Administration Says Nothing to See Here

The White House has dismissed the payments as an example of Republicans refusing to solve real public policy problems and attacking the Biden family with flimsy evidence.

“Instead of bizarrely attacking the president’s family, perhaps House Republicans should focus on working with the president to deliver results for American families on important priorities like lowering costs and strengthening health care,” presidential spokesman Ian Sams said.

Comer is undeterred. “Hunter Biden has taken in millions and millions of dollars from our adversaries, mainly in China, and I think we need to determine, what was that money for?”

You Haven’t Seen the End of the Hunter Biden Investigation

The committee chair plans to seize even more bank records for the panel to examine. Republicans believe that the Chinese companies had sway and influence over the Bidens, including the president.

In fairness to the Bidens, the money sent to them could have been in exchange for legitimate business activity such as initial seed funds for getting the firm off the ground along with public relations and marketing services.

So far there is little evidence that President Biden was using his office and name for improper money transfers or that he was a part of what Hunter was doing. But the high amount of funding that was moved to Biden bank accounts is suspicious and raises questions about what it was used for, especially for Hallie considering she was not seemingly acting in a business role.

The White House is in “explain” mode which usually means it is defensive and knows that this is a political and legal problem for the president.

“Hunter received his portion of good faith seed funds which he shared with his uncle, James Biden, and Hallie Biden with whom he was involved with at the time, and sharing expenses,” the White House spokesperson said, calling the whole investigation a “right-wing conspiracy.”

Despite protestations from the White House, the House Republicans have found enough evidence to warrant further investigation. Jurors understand bank records and know how to follow money in politics because there is a clear source and a recipient.

Hunter Biden and his crew may not be able to dig themselves out from the reek of this scandal as it develops. Republicans will be hot on this trail and the Biden administration will have to play defense at every turn.

    You have a lot of nerve thinking that the Bidens are innocent. You’re obviously a Democrat. Biden has destroyed our country and it’s going to get worse. Thank you for your intelligent comment on what you feel should be done.
    Please refrain from posting any other articles as we don’t need to hear your biased Democratic comments.

    That’s funny how the whole time this gained traction, the leftist, liberal media was insisting it was false or a conspiracy theory. Now that it is being PROVEN true, they want to say it’s not an important issue and we should focus on “real” problems. The crooked Biden cabal are a real problem. Let’s hope they all get taken down, including, “the big guy.” What a glaring example of a corrupt political system supported by the corrupt media. Reporting was at its’finest during the Watergate probes. That is no longer true. Reporters are now activists and they create the news they want with no regard to the damage done to this great nation by their lies and their agenda.

    No question Hunter Biden is sleazy. But so far there doesn’t seem to be actual evidence of anything criminal, or different from what the Trumps, father and children, did, or that attaches to his father, despite several years of investigating and shouting.

    Hunter Biden is a private citizen. Investigate Joe Biden as he is the president but congress has no authority to investigate private citizens. Period. In the same vein, why are not investigating the trump kids for doing business while daddy was still running his business and being president? Why was it ok for Ivanka to get patents in China while traveling with daddy? This is clearly illegal but not a peep from the Republicans..

    Can you imagine the repercussions had Ivanka taken in millions from our adversaries AFTER her Father left the WH? AND….nothing to point to why? The left and Trump haters would have crucified her and her Father within days of finding out. They are such hypocrites!

    Clearly one doesn’t receive millions of dollars for doing apparently nothing. So is Joe the true Manchurian Candidate?

    What about the millions of dollars that Hunter Biden received from the Communist Chinese while he was on a trip with then Vice-President Joe Biden on Air Force Two in 2012, the Ukraine deals that Hunter and James Biden were doing before the Russian Invasion? How much money did all the Bidens receive while Joe was in office with Obama, Hillary Clinton, later John Kerry and others. And you can’t forget Ambassador Stevens and those three seals who helped save the lives of the Embassy Staff. Obama, Biden, Hillary, that attorney general, had all said that the Terrorist Attack was a riot over a movie. they are all criminals.

    Why did all of you vote for someone that hid out in his basement prior to the election? Does anyone research who they are voting for or at least realize that this guy was hiding out? OR, do they just go through the motions?

    Joe Bidden is corrupt and is a liar. He has been taking money from China for years. The Republicans should prosecute him and be as serious as the Democrats are in their continuous charges against Trump. Why is it that only Republicans are charged with crimes? Doesn’t the media see this? I would like to see proof that the Republicans are actually doing something.

    How rich and dripping with hypocrisy…it’s time to move on from the laptop from Hell…really? really?

    It points a persistent willingness to abuse the power of the executive branch by blatantly selling access and favors to Chinese nationals…holy sh*t batman. Is that not the ultimate betrayal of being Vice President?? Nothing to see here folks, just move along…

    Meanwhile back in Trump-ville, he is being indicted for a questionable payoff to a hooker 7 or 8 years ago, on accounting laws? The bias and hypocrisy are astronomically breathtaking, hilarious, and embarrassing.

    It was never a secret that Hunter Biden’s work included orchestrating private equity investments in China, nor was it illegal. Bottom line, he’s a capitalist and was doing capitalist things. I don’t know why right-wingers get their knickers so twisted over his work. Seems like he fits right in with their business models.
