New information, and old information, about President Joe Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, is becoming increasingly more concerning. Not only has Hunter caused reputational scars on the Biden family, but he’s likely caused several national security threats over the course of his lifetime.
It’s frustrating that the White House isn’t transparent about the basic details of Hunter’s investments. The media isn’t helping either by not covering the story to the fullest extent. The reporters who are seeking information often aren’t able to get any.
A reporter asked Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre, “Online business records suggest that the first son still holds a 10% stake in a Chinese investment fund. Is it possible to have basic transparency there on whether he actually divested that stake or not?”
Jean-Pierre responded, “I would refer you to his representatives. That’s not something I can speak about from the podium.”
Similarly, Fox News White House Correspondent Peter Doocy asked Jean-Pierre, “He’s [Joe Biden] leaving a voicemail about a New York Times article concerning Hunter Biden’s business dealings and he says, ‘I think you’re clear.’ How is that not him talking to his son about his overseas business dealings?”
Jean-Pierre answered, “We’re not, from this podium — I’m not going to talk about alleged materials from the laptop.”
Doocy then asked, “Are you disputing that this is the president’s voice on the voicemail?”
Jean-Pierre responded, “I am not going to talk about alleged materials from the laptop, Peter, I refer you to his son’s representatives.”
If Hunter still owns the stake in the Chinese investment firm, then it would be completely contradictory to what Hunter’s attorney said. Hunter’s attorney said that he “no longer holds any interest, directly or indirectly, in either BHR or Skaneateles.”
That’s also not accurate, according to Chinese business records that indicate Hunter still invested in the Chinese investment firm BHR Partners.
