Hunter Biden in More Trouble for His Company Investing in Blacklisted Firm

Hunter Biden has been in the news lately because of what appears to be a sweetheart deal with a Ukrainian energy company which had him drawing a $50,000 a month paycheck even though he has no known expertise in the energy business. The arrangement has caused headaches with his father, former Vice President Joe Biden, who is accused of pulling strings to get Hunter his job and using his influence to shield him from an investigation by a Ukrainian prosecutor.

Now, Hunter Biden is in hot water again, according to Breitbart, because of his relationship with a Chinese private equity firm called Bohai Harvest RST (BHR). The company, bankrolled by the Beijing government, invested in another firm, Megvii Technology, which has been blacklisted by the United States government.

The problem is that Megvii’s facial recognition technology is being used to suppress Muslim Uighurs. China has been herding the Uighurs into reeducation camps, subjection them to savage treatment, including forced sterilization as a way to reduce their population, and even harvesting organs from those who are executed for crimes against the state.

Breitbart interviewed Peter Schweizer, who noted that Joe Biden’s fingerprints are all over his son’s dealings with BHR. He noted that in December 2013, the elder Biden went to Beijing to confront the Chinese government over its imperialist moves in the South China Sea. Instead of being tough, Joe Biden folded. Why did this happen? Schweizer explains:

“Well, I think the reason he goes soft on China is because with him on that trip, flying on Air Force Two, is his son Hunter Biden, and ten days after they return from China, Hunter Biden — who has this small firm, he has no background in private equity, he has no background in Chinese finance — gets a whopping $1.5 billion deal from the Chinese government. This is the Chinese government giving Joe Biden and a [John] Kerry confidante the management over this money, and they made huge fees off of this money, and it’s an example of this kind of corruption.”

Hunter Biden sits on the board of BHR and has a minority stake in the firm. The investment in Megvii is not the only problematic move by the private equity company. BHR has also acquired several American companies that have developed technology that could be of use to the Chinese government and military.

One of these investments was in an automotive company called Hennigas which has developed anti-vibration technology that has military as well as civilian applications. Despite this fact, the deal passed muster with Obama administration regulators. The technology was eventually used to develop Chinese fighter aircraft.

Hunter Biden’s relationship with BHR and its acquisition of an important American company is just the latest revelation that has created a headache for Joe Biden. It is casting a cloud over his prospects to gain the presidency in his third attempt. The elder Biden has thus far refused to answer questions and has reacted angerly to journalists who have been incautious enough to ask them.

The latest revelations about the shadowy dealings with the Chinese by the Bidens, father, and son take place against a backdrop of rising concern about the inordinate influence the Beijing government wield over American popular culture and private business. The Chinese use access to its lucrative 1.5-billion-person market to bend American companies to their will, The results range from a veto in film and TV content that Beijing finds displeasing to the virtual looting of technology from American firms, by hook or crook. The National Basketball Association is in trouble because the general manager of the House Rockets tweeted in support of the Hong Kong freedom fighters.

Thus far, Joe and Hunter Biden have gotten little more than embarrassment for their participation in this predatory relationship. That may be about to change. The Senate Finance Committee has launched an investigation into the matter.

In the meantime, the controversy has entered the political realm. While President Trump rarely passes on the opportunity to needle the Bidens, Joe Biden is in full stonewall mode. Hunter Biden, thus far, is nowhere to be found.

  1. I guess whenever they find Hunter, that he has his work cut out, for himself, to talk his way out of this one.

    And, more importantly, it looks as if Joe Biden has some explaining to do.

    It almost seems as if the Democrats want Joe to go down with the President and then open the door for Hillary or Michelle. I don’t think that there is any way for Sanders or Warren to win a national election.

  2. PLEASE NOTE! WHEN CALLING FORMER VP BIDEN, HENCEFORTH, ‘DO NOT CALL HIM SLEEPY JOE! HE SHALL BE CALLED ‘DIRTY JOE!’ ANOTHER MEMBER OF THE SWAMP IN WASHINGTON!

  3. This is disgraceful and disgusting. Now they don’t have to steel to get the information because they own the company. Wow

  4. Talk about crooked and fraud, overwhelming!!!

  5. fraud, crooked to the max

  6. The whole damn American political system is corrupt except for Trump but he is the only one taking heat for corruption!

  7. OH WHAT A TANGLED WEB WE WEAVE WHEN WE PRACTICE TOO DECEIVE . SOUNDS LIKE THE CLINTONS FINGERPRINTS ARE ON THIS SOMEWHERE. HE IS NOT SMART ENOUGH TOO DO ALL OF THIS ON HIS OWN. MAYBE THIS IS WHERE OBAMA IS GETTING ALL HIS MONEY TOO . HE SUDDENLY HAS A LOT OF MONEY TOO BUY A LOT OF EXPENSIVE PROPERTY???? WHERE IS BIDEN GETTING ALL HIS CAMPEIGN MONEY TOO???

  8. So where is Hunter Biden? Rehab?

  9. They are going to put those criminals in jail yet.

  10. It’s about time the Obama cartel got investigated. With slimy Joe kissing Obama’s ass and making shady deals for his son;it’s about time an investigation takes place. Now I want to see how slimy Joe tries to block this investigation.

  11. Wow. So Hunter’s dirty… again. Well that’s what happens when dad keeps hauling him around to these global “playgrounds”. He leaves home a drunk, doped out idiot and returns home a rich, doped up, drunken billionaire. Yup, father knows best when it comes to corruption and how to be corrupted surreptitiously, I guess.

    I can’t help but wonder how Biden… either one of them can call out our POTUS or anyone else for that matter re: quid pro quo shat. If they’re doing it (and it appears they are) they all should be rounded up, charged for the criminal violations and thrown in prison. IMHO.

  12. Time to investigate Hunter………Obviously his ridiculous salary was for influence he could exert on his Daddy, ya think?

  13. There is nothing to suggest Trump is a accused of being racist.
    However, there is plenty of evidence to prove the Democratic “Party” are flat-out ” racialists! They continue to race-bait and insert race into every facet of life. The fact is projection is the term for people who accuse others of what they in fact are!

  14. Two more crooked Democrats. Send them to jail

  15. So he resigns? Till Daddy wins presidency. Then it’s business as usual,in China,Ukraine, and where else. Did they get the subpoenas for the 4 Dems, who wrote letter too Ukraine, telling them no money till you investigate Trump. It’s a clown show, of. DO AS I SAY NOT AS WE DO. BIDEN HAS ALWys been a greedy sob pervert. How about a look at his and honey boys tax returns. And NO ONE, HAS CALLED FOR OBAMAOS AND MICHAELS. FOR THEIR TREASON. NOW PELOSERS DAUGHTER,HUSBAND.

  21. Maybe the statement, Once Liar and a crook, almost always liar and a crook’! Is it any wonder the American people have lost any confidence in the government! What a person does always has consequences good or bad! I hope this catches up to the Democrat part.

  22. The Biden’s Have blatantly ignored our laws.

  23. It appears that most of the Dem’s are totally corrupt. Everything they have been trying to blame President Trump for has their fingerprints all over it. They are just a bunch of greedy, ignorant bozos! I will not vote for ANY Democrat 2020.
    MAGA! & KAG!
    TRUMP 2020!

  24. Another dirty deal involving Obama, Kerry, the Bidens & who knows what other scumbags are in

  25. Concerning the Bidens and other criminals My wife and I pray they are brought to justice as well as the Clintons Bushs and Obamas it Is pathetic that nothing is being done Especially since their crimes are against the Constitution of the United States of America.I was told in 1954 while in grade school that if the checks and balances of the constitution are not used by good and Godly men and women our form of government will fall! It is obviously falling Now! So prayers and actions of good people are necessary to take it Back to honest people who are prolife and not greedy for power for absolute power corrupts absolutely. Pax Vobiscum Parvus auctor Dei

  28. this is so disgusting ! What has our country become ? TRUMP 20/20 Nothing less

  29. Joe Biden did not use his influence to shield his son from a corruption investigation. Joe Biden blackmailed the Ukraine.

    And what about pelosi? She and HER son were also involved in the corrupt ukrainian companies…she even did a commercial for it….https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=090ze_3Gv9o

  30. This entire Biden affair becomes sleazier by the moment. I’m sure all of us know the Ukrainian government gave Hunter Biden that ‘position’ with the energy company out of the goodness of their heart. Riiiight. Having absolute no training or expertise in the energy field the only thing that makes sense is he was given the ‘position’ and a very generous retainer because his father could pull strings for them. From some reports the arrangement proved to be very lucrative for both father and son. Then, Hunter Biden became associated with that Chinese company. More sleaze. When old Joe gets caught with his pants down – so to speak – he flat out lies about his actions.

    I think the Congressional Democrats are missing a great opportunity in looking for someone to hang. Instead of going after President Trump, which is a lost cause, they can redeem themselves by investigating the Bidens, the Obamas, and the Clintons. There is enough sleaze there to keep even the Democrats happy for years.

  31. The Biden’s are a disgrace to our great country. Biden Trash, Biden Trash. Biden Trash, Biden Trash.
