With each passing day, the plot of the Ukraine scandal thickens, and another element of the scandal is exposed.
If it weren’t enough that Hunter Biden profited off of his Ukraine dealings due to his father’s position of power, he also made millions working for another foreign company in an even more problematic country: China.
Even after leaving Ukrainian company Burisma Holdings, Hunter Biden still maintained equally lucrative positions at other companies, in a manner typical of the audacity and arrogance of the political “elite.“ He only resigned his position with the Chinese company that was bankrolling him because of the increased political heat that his father is facing.
Although this wasn’t technically an admission of guilt, his decision to step down is an admission of something wrong, and proves that he knows what a liability such shady foreign dealings are for his father’s candidacy. He knows what he is doing is wrong, but quit not because of morals or ethics, but because of what was politically convenient and expedient. Add that to the list of reasons why the Bidens must be kept as far away from political power as possible.
Breitbart: Hunter Biden Leaves China Board as Trump Attacks Hit Home
By Simon Kent
Hunter Biden is walking away from the board of a Chinese-backed private equity company as part of a public pledge to disavow all foreign work if his father, former U.S. Vice President Joe Biden, gains the presidency in 2020.
Joe Biden’s second son made his move after a month of pushing by U.S. President Donald Trump who has publicly highlighted the perceived – and real – conflicts of interest represented by Biden’s work in Asia.
A statement released on his behalf by his legal counsel George Mesires said his relationship with the management company of a private equity fund that’s backed by Chinese state-owned entities will end within weeks.
The 49-year-old doesn’t state whether he will be divesting from BHR (Shanghai) Equity Investment Fund Management Company. The company was set up in 2013 to invest Chinese capital outside of China.
Instead the young Biden pledged he wouldn’t work for any foreign-owned companies or serve on their boards during a potential Biden administration.
“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,” the statement said. “He never anticipated the barrage of false charges against both him and his father by the President of the United States.”
Just two days ago Trump again highlighted the problem of Hunter Biden seeking work overseas during a political rally in Louisiana, as Breitbart News reported.
“He doesn’t know what a gasoline tank looks like,” Trump said, explaining Biden’s son knew nothing about energy despite earning up to $83,000 a month for sitting on a board of a corrupt energy company in Ukraine.
Trump then ripped Hunter for leaving China with $1.5 billion in investments from the bank of China despite knowing “nothing” and mocked the news broadcasts for repeatedly saying that Trump’s claims of corruption were “totally unsubstantiated” … at Biden’s request.
“It’s not unsubstantiated, he took a fortune out of Ukraine, knew nothing, took a fortune out of China,” he said.
He expressed skepticism Hunter Biden was able to get $1.5 billion in Chinese investments because they thought he was a good investment.
“For a guy to walk in from off the street with no experience, a bad track record, just got thrown out of the navy, and he walks away with $1.5 billion?” Trump said.
