A saga empresarial de Hunter Biden

By Duncan Mil

August 28, 2023 - Os Republicanos dos EUA podem abrir um inquérito de impugnação ao Presidente Joe Biden, por ligação às tropelias empresariais do seu filho
Hunter Biden, quando o Congresso reabrir em setembro.

In a presidential debate in October 2020, Vice President Biden was asked by moderator Kristen Welker: “there have been questions about the work your son has done in China and for a Ukrainian energy company when you were vice president; in retrospect, was anything about those relationships inappropriate or unethical?”

“Nothing was unethical. My son has not made money in terms of this thing about, what are you talking about, China,” Biden replied.

But now, nearly three years later, Hunter has rebutted Biden’s assertions directly. In court testimony in late June, Hunter Biden acknowledged that he had been paid substantial sums in China -- the first official confirmation that this was the case.

This discrepancy is creating a political headache for the White House, and Republicans insist there’s a lot more to find out.

“A lot of the things the president said about his family’s shady business dealings, we’re proving every day that they’re not true,” Republican James Comer, Chair of the Oversight and Accountability Committee, said.

The Republican-controlled House of Representatives reconvenes on September 12.
