CNN Reporter: Hunter Biden ‘Gives the Impression’ of Wrongdoing with Business Dealings

Questions linger about whether Hunter Biden used his father to advance his business career.

For weeks, reporters have been trying to track down answers regarding the business dealings of Joe Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, in Ukraine and China. Last month, ABC News repeatedly attempted to speak to Joe Biden about the issue and were ignored by the 2020 presidential candidate.

Biden’s campaign claimed that the former vice president always followed “well-established executive branch ethics standards,” but as a new CNN report shows, there is certainly an appearance of impropriety.

“There’s a sense that Hunter Biden benefited over the course of his career with being in proximity to Joe Biden’s power,” CNN’s Sara Murray reported Monday. “There’s no evidence that Joe Biden actually did anything wrong or did anything to sway things in Hunter Biden’s favor; he’s denied that his son ever lobbied him for anything.”

“But, you know, when you look at Ukraine for instance, Hunter Biden was on the board of this energy company, and it was being investigated by a prosecutor in Ukraine, Joe Biden got that prosecutor fired by threatening to withhold U.S. aid,” she said. “Now, everyone says that’s because the prosecutor was deeply corrupt, but you can see what the optics are.”

“Similarly in China, Hunter Biden was working with a company that was trying to land a big deal with the Bank of China, he takes Air Force 2 with Joe Biden to China in 2013, a few days later, this business deal is finalized,” Murray added. “And so, you know, it sort of gives the impression that Hunter Biden is constantly using his connections with his father to essentially get these deals done.”

Murray’s report was in response to a New Yorker article published Monday that gave further details about some of these business dealings, in addition to borderline scandalous stories from Hunter Biden’s private life, including his relationship with his brother’s widow, Hallie Biden, and his struggle with addiction.
