The Washington Post reported Friday that George Kent, a deputy assistant secretary of state and career State Department official warned about the Biden problem way back in 2015 but got shut down by Biden’s office. Biden’s office? Of course he got shut down by Biden’s office! Why didn’t Kent take this concern to anyone else?
Kent “testified Tuesday that he worried that Hunter Biden’s position at the firm Burisma Holdings would complicate efforts by U.S. diplomats to convey to Ukrainian officials the importance of avoiding conflicts of interest.”
Joe Biden had taken the lead on Ukraine and Kent “had concerns that Ukrainian officials would view Hunter Biden as a conduit for currying influence with his father, said the people.”
Biden’s office said Joe Biden didn’t have the “bandwidth” to deal with Hunter because he was dealing with his son Beau’s cancer.
Hunter Biden, in an interview last week with ABC, confirmed that he probably wouldn’t have gotten the business he did without his father’s influence.
Hunter Biden was interviewed and was on the defensive about his lucrative deals because his father was an influential politician. He was on boards in Ukraine and China because of his name and nothing else.
Hunter Biden admits to getting lucrative deals because of his dad:
“It’s impossible for me to be on any of the boards… without saying I’m the son of the VP.”
“If your last name wasn’t Biden, do you think you would’ve been.. on the board?”

Hunter Biden also admits he discussed Ukraine business with his dad:

HUNTER BIDEN’S DEALINGS WITH UKRAINE AND CHINA:
Mark Levin asks Peter Schweizer to walk him through the journey of Hunter Biden’s involvement in Ukraine.
Schweizer goes in-depth and reveals how he knows Joe Biden was aware of his son’s dealings.
Detail after detail exposes the corruption involved in selling influence in politics. This is an excellent overview of what was going on with Joe and Hunter Biden in Ukraine and China.
“There are lots of people in this town on both sides of the aisle who play this game.”

Joe Biden was involved in two countries and in both of those countries his son was involved in sketchy dealings:
More information is breaking regarding a 2013 trip Vice President Biden took with Hunter Biden, where it looks like shady dealings took place.
Hunter Biden was forming a Chinese private equity firm planning to raise money:
According to NBC News, Hunter Biden just said his meeting with the Chinese banker and the partner was just a social visit…
Hunter Biden was forming a Chinese private equity fund that associates said at the time was planning to raise big money, including from China. Hunter Biden has acknowledged meeting with Jonathan Li, a Chinese banker, and his partner in the fund during the trip, although his spokesman says it was a social visit.
The curious thing is that ten days later, Hunter Biden was approved for a business license there:
The Chinese business license that brought the new fund into existence was issued by Shanghai authorities ten days after the trip, with Hunter Biden, a member of the board.
Talk about a quid pro quo!
Hunter Biden worked connections with foreign leaders during his dad’s official trip more than once.
Ukraine was another case where Hunter used his dad’s position as Vice President to profit:
See our previous report below on Hunter Biden’s partner Devon Archer (see more on Rosemont Partners and the John Kerry connection below), who became involved in natural gas company Burisma.
Glenn Beck also goes through Biden’s dealings in Ukraine:
Some of the key players:

The Washington Examiner reported in detail on the connection with Secretary of State John Kerry:
At the time, Hunter Biden, now 49, and Christopher Heinz, the stepson of then-Secretary of State John Kerry, co-owned Rosemont Seneca Partners, a $2.4 billion private equity firm. Heinz’s college roommate, Devon Archer, was managing partner in the firm. In the spring of 2014, Biden and Archer joined the board of Burisma Holdings, a Ukrainian gas company that was at the center of a U.K. money laundering probe. Over the next year, Burisma reportedly paid Biden and Archer’s companies over $3 million.
Europe Reloaded reports that Burisma was founded by Mykola Zlochevsky some time ago, but he later sold his shares to the Privat Group, which “is a conglomerate controlled by the ferocious Ukrainian oligarch Ihor Kolomoisky (pictured below),” who “is one of the oligarchs charged with holding down the Eastern provinces of Ukraine.”
OUR PREVIOUS REPORT ON HUNTER BIDEN:
It’s hard to believe there hasn’t been a serious look at Hunter Biden’s involvement with natural gas company Burisma in Ukraine.
He got “a big chunk of change” for being on the board of a natural gas company when he had no substantial experience.
He also had no substantial experience with Ukraine.
How in the world does Vice President Joe Biden not know, as he claims, that his son is getting paid by this company?
New Yorker writer Adam Entous told CNN’s Poppy Harlow about Hunter Biden’s work with Burisma:
“He really had no substantial Ukraine experience, no Ukraine experience, and no substantial experience in the energy sector at that stage in his career. So, you know, the suspicion was among people who worked for Joe Biden and some State Department and White House officials was this was an effort on the part of Burisma to curry favor.”
“There are two separate issues here. The issue of whether it was wise of Hunter Biden to take this position at Burisma when his father was guiding policy in Ukraine and, you know, the wisdom of Biden staffers, once they knew that, not to ask Hunter to step down.”
The second issue is whether VP Biden used his position to get the job for Hunter Biden.
Someone should look into Devon Archer who was working for Burisma too.
Should Americans be ok with politicians and family members selling political influence to the highest bidder?
