President Biden has stated that the millions of dollars paid to his family by China is simply ‘not true.’ I am not sure which part of the story is not true, but the President has stated that it is not true. However, he is not necessarily in agreement with his own spokespeople.
On Monday, Fox News reported the following:
After President Biden claimed allegations of family payments from Hunter Biden’s business associate are “not true,” one China expert and author has signaled an “admission of corruption” from the First Family.
“The spokesperson for Hunter Biden’s legal team said that, oh, this is okay because this was seed money, good faith seed money,” Gatestone Institute senior fellow Gordon Chang said on “Mornings with Maria” Monday. “Now, in these types of transactions, nobody pays millions of dollars without a contract.”
On Thursday, GOP lawmakers on the House Oversight Committee revealed that they had obtained bank documents showing that the president’s son, Hunter, the president’s brother, Jim, and Hallie Biden, the widow of the president’s late son, Beau, received payments from Hunter’s business associate Rob Walker and their joint venture with Chinese energy firm CEFC.
The article concludes:
“In the beginning, the White House denied having any knowledge or the fact that their family was involved in any sort of way, shape or form with the CCP. But now we have bank records that reveal otherwise,” Rep. Comer told host Maria Bartiromo on Sunday. “We don’t know what the Bidens did in return for this money. The lawyer said that it was seed capital for a business. We haven’t been able to find a business. Right now it looks like the Biden family just pocketed this money.”
Chang gave a stark wake-up call to President Biden, criticizing his ignorance in addressing “China’s total surveillance state.”
“Biden is sort of stuck in this 1990s foreign policy of ‘let’s all get along.’ Well, the world’s divided into camps,” Chang said. “China and Russia is [sic] on the one side; they form the core of a new axis… And Biden has to understand that, because we cannot deal with things unless we acknowledge reality.”
If that was seed money, I really would like to know exactly what they are growing.
