White House deflects Hunter Biden concerns over foreign trade

0

The White House dismissed questions about whether Hunter Biden’s foreign dealings create conflicts of interest given his father, President Joe Biden,’s dealings with China and Russia on the world stage.

Press Secretary Jen Psaki had no updates regarding a 2020 report by the Senate Homeland Security and Finance Committee on claims that a company associated with the younger Biden received $3.5 million in 2014 from Russian billionaire Elena Baturina, the ex-wife of the Mayor of Moscow.

“I have no confirmation of the accuracy of this report, so I don’t have any further details,” Psaki told reporters on Friday.

“What would be his conflicts of interest?” She asked. “He continued to sanction oligarchs more severely than we have ever done in the past.”

Psaki was also alerted to whether Hunter Biden has divested himself as a 10% owner of Chinese government-linked investment firm BHR Partners.

“He’s a private citizen. He doesn’t work for the government. I would refer you to his representatives,” she said. “I think we’re done here. Thank you very much.”

Business records from China’s National Credit Information Publicity System, accessed last week, continue to identify Skaneateles as a 10% owner of BHR, and a Washington, DC counterpart lists the younger Biden as Skaneateles’ sole beneficial owner.

Distractions at the White House come after elder Biden spent nearly two hours speaking with Chinese Secretary General Xi Jinping over a secure video link in the Situation Room, as US intelligence suggests Russia has asked China for military and financial assistance to support his invasion of Ukraine.

“The President explained in detail the impact and consequences of China providing material support to Russia in its brutal attacks on Ukrainian cities and civilians,” Psaki said.
