Senator wants inquiry into whether ‘conflict of interest’ led to US approval of deal involving Chinese state company and Joe Biden’s son
interesting source – link not great.
Hunter is a liability, not that it matters. Joe Biden is his own liability.
the Ukraine, and China…. where else does the Biden reach extend?
here is a vid about Joey messing up the Ukraine investigation, thanks TN!
Saying the potential conflicts of interest were reminiscent of the controversial “Uranium One” transaction, Senate Finance Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley announced Thursday he is probing the Obama administration’s 2015 decision to approve the sale of a sensitive U.S. technology company to the Chinese government and an investment firm run by the sons of Joe Biden and John Kerry.
Hunter Biden’s business dealings in Ukraine have already become a liability for the elder Biden’s frontrunning presidential campaign, and the new investigation could lead to further allegations of corruption. Joe Biden has bragged about pressuring Ukraine to fire its top prosecutor in 2016, and critics said the then-vice president wanted to head off the prosecutor’s probe into a company that employed Hunter Biden as a board member.
Grassley continued: “The direct involvement of Mr. Hunter Biden and Mr. Heinz in the acquisition of Henniges by the Chinese government creates a potential conflict of interest. Both are directly related to high-ranking Obama administration officials. The Department of State, then under Mr. Kerry’s leadership, is also a CFIUS member and played a direct role in the decision to approve the Henniges transaction.”
“The appearance of potential conflicts in this case is particularly troubling given Mr. Biden’s and Mr. Heinz’s history of investing in and collaborating with Chinese companies, including at least one posing significant national security concerns,” Grassley added. “As with the Uranium One transaction, there is cause for concern that potential conflicts of interest could have influenced CFIUS approval of the Henniges transaction.”
