Joe Biden said he was unaware of Hunter’s business deals but there are pictures of him meeting with Hunter’s partners.
Now, Joe may not have lied, it could have been his dementia kicking in. If you remember, the Biden campaign assured us that Hunter would sell his interest in a company closely tied to the communist government before Joe took office.
That was four months ago and Hunter is still partnering with the Chicoms.
Joe Biden met his son Hunter’s business associates from Kazakhstan at Café Milano in Washington, DC, despite earlier denials. In August of 2019 in South Carolina, Joe said:
“I have never discussed, with my son or my brother or with anyone else, anything having to do with their businesses. Period.”
The NY Post Post report cast doubts on that statement. In October of 2020, a picture appeared of Joe and Hunter Biden with oligarch Kenes Rakishev of Kazakhstan.
He was at that time exploring doing a deal with Hunter. But, introducing a possible business partner to the vice president even if it was Joe can be a persuasive inducement to possible partners.
As Breitbart News reported:
“The photograph of the Bidens with Rakishev and [Kazakhstan’s former prime minister, Karim] Massimov appears to have been taken at Café Milano in Washington, D.C. The iconic restaurant’s logo appears on the drapes in the background (backwards in the photo). The date of the photograph is unknown.”
The Post report notes:
Joe Biden met with Ukrainian, Russian and Kazakhstani business associates of his son’s at a dinner in Washington, DC, while he was vice president, records on Hunter Biden’s abandoned laptop show.
The dinner, on April 16, 2015, was held in the private “Garden Room” at Café Milano, a Georgetown institution whose catchphrase is: “Where the world’s most powerful people go.”
That date is crucial because April 17th, the very next day Hunter Biden received an email from a senior member of the corrupt Ukrainian energy company, Burisma. The email thanked him for introducing him to his father.
After the campaign, Hunter Biden admitted he was under federal investigation over tax problems.
There may be other legal troubles for the Bidens ahead.
The Post suggests that Hunter Biden used the World Food Program as a cover for the introduction between his father and his business associates. And Sen. Charles Grassley (R-IA) has already asked the DOJ last year to look into Hunter Biden’s failure to register as a foreign agent while representing Chinese companies in the U.S.
There will also be questions about then-Vice President Biden’s apparent use of his position to benefit his son’s business interests.
