Hunter Biden, son of 2020 presidential candidate Joe Biden, has come under scrutiny for his business links to Ukrainian natural gas firm Burisma while his father was vice president.
In his new book, Profiles in Corruption: Abuse of Power by America’s Progressive Elite, Peter Schweizer reveals other business deals of Hunter Biden's worth hundreds of millions of dollars with individuals and entities tied to the governments of Russia, China, and Kazakhstan.
Schweizer offered more context about the deals in an appearance on Hannity. “All of [these deals] occur...during this eight-year period when Joe Biden is Vice President of the United States,” he said, adding further, “The ship really came in...when he was Vice President because all of these entities either wanted something from him, or they wanted to please the Vice President of the United States and the Biden family got rich as a result.”
The Biden campaign is agressively hitting back at Schweizer, releasing a memo over the long weekend that made demands of media outlets in their coverage of the former Vice President and his dealings with Ukraine.
“It is not sufficient to say that allegations are ‘unsubstantiated’ or that ‘no evidence has emerged to support them,'” the campaign wrote. “Not only is there ‘no evidence’ for Republicans’ main argument against the [former] vice president there is a mountain of evidence that actively debunks it.”
#Biden campaign warns media against spreading #Trump misinformation. Read. @peterschweizer’s book, published in 2018 about #HunterBiden’s cashing in. Includes #JohnKerry’s stepson. #Schweizer is meticulous. #Biden is political dead man walking. https://t.co/p9cVs6fFMc— mikewarder1 (@mikewarder1) January 20, 2020
