Hunter Biden was appointed to the AMTRAK board by George W. Bush in 2006. M. L.

Should Trump appoint a new Supreme Court Justice before the election?

When his dad became vice president, Hunter left the Amtrak board and instead got involved with a series of investment companies…AND THAT’S WHERE BURISMA AND CHINA COME IN TO PLAY.

Legislation in Congress put the railway system on track to receive $1.3 billion in federal subsidies in 2007, the same amount it received in 2006.
