Hunter Biden Emerges; Quits Board Of Chinese Private-Equity Firm

Share

Hunter Biden is stepping down from a controversial board position at a Chinese-based private-equity company, and has vowed to forego all foreign work if his father, former Vice President Joe Biden, is elected president in 2020, according to Bloomberg.

Hunter will step down from the board on Oct. 31, according to a statement released by his lawyer, George Mesires.

“Hunter always understood that his father would be guided, entirely and unequivocally, by established U.S. policy, regardless of its effects on Hunter’s professional interests,” reads the statement. “He never anticipated the barrage of false charges against both him and his father by the President of the United States.”

“Under a Biden Administration, Hunter will readily comply with any and all guidelines or standards a President Biden may issue to address purported conflicts of interest, or the appearance of such conflicts, including any restrictions related to overseas business interests,” the statement continues. “He will continue to keep his father personally uninvolved in his business affairs.

In May, journalist Peter Schweizer accused the Bidens of corruption in both Ukraine and China – revealing that in 2013, they flew together to China on Air Force Two. Two weeks later, Hunter’s firm inked a private equity deal for $1 billion with a subsidiary of the Chinese government’s Bank of China, which expanded to $1.5 billion.

If it sounds shocking that a vice president would shape US-China policy as his son — who has scant experience in private equity — clinched a coveted billion-dollar deal with an arm of the Chinese government, that’s because it is” –Peter Schweizer

As the accusations against Hunter mounted, he attempted to do damage control in  a July interview with the New Yorker – in which he opened up about being a crackhead and accepting a ‘bribe’ from a Chinese energy tycoon in the form of a 2.8 carat diamond worth thousands of dollars, which he says wasn’t a bribe – and admitted he and his father had spoken of his business dealings.

President Trump and his attorney Rudy Giuliani have homed in on both China and Ukraine – where Joe Biden leveraged his position as Vice President to have a Ukrainian prosecutor fired who was investigating a company whose board Hunter sat on. Bloomberg calls this claim “unsubstantiated” despite Joe Biden bragging about doing so on tape.

U.S. banking records show that Hunter Biden’s American-based firm Rosemont Seneca Partners LLC, received regular transfers into one of its accounts (more than $166k/month) from the natural gas firm Burisma Holdings that employed Hunter Biden. All of this occurred during a period when Vice President Biden was the main U.S. official dealing with Ukraine and its tense relationship with Russia.

Two years after leaving office, Joe Biden couldn’t resist the temptation to brag to an audience of foreign policy specialists about the time as vice president that he strong-armed Ukraine into firing its top prosecutor. His threat was so severe that Ukraine would have lost $1 billion in U.S. loan guarantees sending Ukraine toward insolvency. So the question is – why? Why did Joe Biden demand the immediate firing of Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin? And what did the State Department know about Hunter Biden’s dealings in Ukraine and Ukraine’s investigations into those business dealings? –SLF

Meanwhile, Ukrainian MP Andriy Derkach announced last Wednesday that Joe Biden received $900,000 from Burisma Group for lobbying activities, citing materials related to an investigation.

Via Interfax:

Former U.S. Vice President Joe Biden received $900,000 for lobbying activities from Burisma Group, Ukraine’s Verkhovna Rada member Andriy Derkach said citing investigation materials.

Derkach publicized documents which, as he said, “describe the mechanism of getting money by Biden Sr.” at a press conference at Interfax-Ukraine’s press center in Kyiv on Wednesday. –Interfax

This was the transfer of Burisma Group’s funds for lobbying activities, as investigators believe, personally to Joe Biden through a lobbying company. Funds in the amount of $900,000 were transferred to the U.S.-based company Rosemont Seneca Partners, which according to open sources, in particular, the New York Times, is affiliated with Biden. The payment reference was payment for consultative services,” said Derkach.

Derkach also puiblicized sums of money transferred to Burisma Group representatives – including Hunter Biden.

    Still laughing at this quote. Makes me think someone might be a little “high” when making that statement.

    Father guided to make sure “drug addled” son had a profitable “no show” job. And regarding barrage of false charges? Son should ask Father why Father was bragging about the “no show” job of the “drug addled” son.

    Sorry, Joe and Hunter, too late! Time is NOW to EXPLAIN this. And THANKFULLLY we have a President now looking into a patronage job for a Former Vice President’s drug addled” son. Something the Former President should have as well. I guess this was the established US policy?

      Obama is more corrupt than Biden could ever be! Kenyan born Obama has a house in Kenyan as a national monument as the place of his birth! The woman who made the fake birth record in Hawaii had to be killed, just like Obama’s grandmother in Hawaii before the first election because she was going to tell the world about his fraud! He is a native=born Kenyan and our first Usurper potus hopefully ever in our history! Pelosi and Reid “vetted” Obama so we know they committed TREASON as well! The whole bunch of them needs to go to Federal Prison for life at least!

        True. But as an actual American Citizen Job Biden SHOULD have known better. But decided to stay mum and allow Pelosi and Reid to break the Constitution regarding allowing and “vetting” a “non-citizen” to run for the most important position in this Great Nation.

        Gitmo should be made full by all those who allowed this to occur. Same ones trying their “coup” against OUR President now!

        Obama is the creep of creeps, but I don’t understand the significance of obsessing over his birth. He has come and gone. His mother was a citizen regardless of whatever else he was or where he was. If John McCain, and Ted Cruz can run for President, so can Obummer. They were born outside the country to American citizens. So, Obama is a natural born citizen by being born to an American mother and having her citizenship at birth. This has been debated, but never qualifies for the SCOTUS.

          There is a significance regarding Obama and his lawful citizenship. It’s called breaking the law. And “faking” a birth certificate? Gee, don’t see why someone would if they were ACTUALLY a real citizen? And a foreign exchange student, who fell thru the cracks is still a “foreigner”.

          John McCain – born on a Military base. Was Obama? nope! But then again McCain did his best for Obama and rolled over on that election.

          Come and gone? Nope, just swept under the rug and now we have a “coup”.

            As I remember, Barry Goldwater faced the same issue back in 1960. He was born in Arizona, but at the time, it was only a US Territory and not yet a State. And yes, Obama’s birth certificate is a fake. Larry Klayman (founder of Judicial Watch and now head of Freedom Watch) stated on his radio program that Obama’s birth certificate absolutely is fake, for many reasons – just one of which is that his given race is “African-American” – when that term was not used until many years later. The term that would have been used in 1961 was “Negro.”

          “Obama is the creep of creeps, but I don’t understand the significance of obsessing over his birth. He has come and gone.”

          You ask why does it matter? Here is why:
          1. If the obaman was ineligible to be elected president, then all executive orders he signed are null and void on their face. Bills that he signed into law would probably have to be reexamined, reevaluated and reauthorized.
          2. All the wealth he accumulated flowed from the position that he occupied. If ineligible, then everything the obaman gained would be fraudulent and he would be subject to criminal prosecution.
          3. Treaties, trade deals, etc., that the obaman signed, and that are being “undone” by President Trump, would likewise be null and void. There would be no need for some federal judge with a wild hair up his/her ass to contest everything that Trump does.
          4. It would open the question “What do the dirty dems know about this, when did they know it, and what punishment do they merit?” (HINT: If the obaman was ineligible and the dirty dem leadership knew, then that is likely treason and they could be executed by hanging.)
          5. It could lead to the quick demise of the Democratic Party since FINALLY their evil and despicable ways would be exposed for all to see.
          6. The obaman itself could be tried and if found guilty of treason, could be executed.

    The leg of the dog gets crookeder by the day. What do these people think they can get by with lying? Everything they do is recorded somewhere. Seems the way of the Democrat Party anymore. Besides why are we having to furnish the planes for them to do private buisiness over seas. I understand their Secret Service exept small crew goes on seperate planes.
    But the continual lying is what bothers me most. Schittiff opens his mouth nothing comes out but lies. But he is just Joking? Not a one of the 19 still running for president can tell a word of truth!

    How are does someone get kicked out of the military for drugs and go directly to a board of directors job? The same way Rahm Emanuel went from the White House to a job in the financial industry – with no formal education or experience in that industry and get a $450,000 A MONTHLY job. Emanuel’s job? To “introduce” his employers to “people”. Shady cushy jobs for shady people.

    I don’t understand why charges aren’t brought. Why are there no repercussions? Crooked Comey, Clapper, Hillary and the list goes on. Why no arrests of the Antifa whackos? Why does violence and corruption from the left go unchecked? Law and order must prevail or our precious society crumbles.

    Here’s a quote from another article;
    *”It appears Biden does not want the American people to know that he and his son had dealings with China that led to the purchase of a U.S. military contractor corporation being sold off to the communists.”*!
    Not only did Biden help with that Trans Pacific Partnership bull, he sold out part of our military!
    What would our Founding Fathers had done to Biden and his family?

    Oh, gee wiz. Poor Hunter has to step down from his imaginary seat on an imaginary board.
    Everyone who has a smidgen of common sense knows he is only the face of the payment for his father’s loyalty to Imperial China.

    Although, his lawyers do make him sound so magnanimous . . .

    The Chinese , Ukrainians, British can buy a cheap politician like Biden for little $$. Selling influence is how all of them get rich. In the case of Hunter Biden, hiring a junkie alcoholic like Hunter is actually a wise move, because under questioning, he cannot even explain what his duties were. Drain the swamp!

    Why wouldn’t Hunter step down from China if his father became president? Hunter’s direct connection would then be his dad. More money – less effort! Joe has stated over and over his love of China. Not many countries that most of us have questions about that Joe doesn’t have interest in working with their leaders.
