It’s been a while since we heard about Hunter Biden. The son of Joe Biden has been connected with a variety of shady deals and outright crimes. But, thanks to his powerful daddy, he has yet to face punishment.
In recent months, more shocking allegations have come to light from the infamous laptop—which few could argue was owned by Hunter himself.
Much of what Hunter has been accused of involves him using his father’s office to get rich. He got a nice job with a Ukrainian energy company, while Joe was vice president. Hunter also got big investments from Chinese firms, while Joe was negotiating with the country. Now another scandal has come out, this one much worse than all the others combined.
From Zero Hedge:
Hunter Biden, the second son of U.S. President Joe Biden, tried to broker a $120 million oil agreement in 2014 and 2015 between a Chinese state-owned oil company and Kazakhstan’s prime minister at that time…
The Chinese oil company alleged to be part of the deal, the State China National Offshore Oil Corporation (CNOOC), is not any ordinary firm. Last year, the U.S. Commerce Department identified the company as posing a threat to U.S. national security and added it to a trade blacklist called the “Entity List.”
Woah, boy. A newly released document reveals Hunter Biden was trying to make a deal with a Chinese government-owned oil company and the Kazakhstan prime minister. As it turns out, the Chinese firm, State China National Offshore Oil Corporation, is on a trade blacklist called the “Entity List.”
The State Department has even warned American companies not to do business with this group, as it is considered a threat to our national security. Yet Hunter Biden, for some reason, was working with this company to land a $120 million oil deal with another foreign land.
He did this as part of his job with Burisma, the Ukrainian energy company he mysteriously worked for. The deal would involve Kazakhstan awarding contracts to this Chinese company, so they could harvest the rich oil and natural gas locked away beneath their soil.
Now, we cannot make any predictions about this arrangement. But it seems pretty cut and dry. Hunter was doing business with a company controlled by the Chinese communist government. It could have violated laws that forbid Americans from doing business with banned groups. Not only that, we have to wonder if Joe Biden was at all involved in these deals.
He was the Vice President of the United States at the time. To say he had no idea about this $120 million deal his son was brokering is a bit of a stretch.
But will this result in an investigation? Will Hunter finally face justice? And will Joe be caught up in this scandal? I guess we’ll find out.
- New documents reveal Hunter Biden was working with a banned Chinese company.
- He was brokering a $120 million oil deal with China and Kazakhstan.
- This Chinese firm has been on a blacklist for being a danger to U.S. national security.
