In a recent New York Post column, author Miranda Devine highlighted the strange reaction from Hunter Biden’s lawyers and the White House concerning the discovery of China-linked payments made to multiple Biden family members.
On a “Fox & Friends” episode, Devine questioned the legitimacy of Hunter Biden’s business dealings in China, asserting that it “doesn’t pass the sniff test.”
The House Oversight Committee recently revealed that the Biden family received over $1 million in payments from accounts related to Hunter Biden’s associate Rob Walker and Chinese business ventures in 2017.
Financial records obtained by the committee show that Walker, Hunter Biden, President Biden’s brother Jim, and their business partners James Gilliar and Tony Bobulinski were involved in a joint venture called Sinohawk Holdings, a partnership with Chinese energy firm CEFC.
Hunter Biden’s legal team responded to the findings, claiming that as a private citizen, Hunter had the right to pursue his own business endeavors and that the joint venture with a privately-owned, legitimate energy company in China was above board.
The spokesperson stated that Hunter received “good faith seed funds” which he shared with his uncle, James Biden, and Hallie Biden, with whom he was involved at the time and sharing expenses.
Miranda Devine argued that the “bizarre response” does not adequately address the suspicious nature of the payments.
With Hunter Biden experiencing financial difficulties at the time, including reduced income from Ukrainian company Burisma and hefty alimony payments, Devine suggests that he desperately needed the Chinese money.
As the debate over the legitimacy of these payments continues, passionate Republican voters should remain skeptical and demand transparency from the Biden family and the White House on this issue.
