James Biden Could Do Much More Damage Than Hunter

I had argued previously that James Biden, Joe’s brother, had more damaging financial scandals than Hunter. And, unlike Hunter, he can’t play the crack card. The degeneracy and drug use that Republicans bet on with Hunter quickly turned into a defense. If Hunter was an out-of-control crackhead, then he couldn’t be expected not to commit crimes. And whatever he did was the result of his addiction, not as a member of a politically corrupt family.

Hunter, paradoxically, makes Joe Biden look good. Instead of the front end of a corrupt clan, Joe looks like a worried father dealing with an out-of-control son. That’s why the media ultimately embraced the laptop and its narrative after launching a redemption tour for Hunter complete with an autobiography and an art career.

James Biden is another story.

Bank records released by Republican senators this week indicate James Biden’s company, the Lion Hall Group, received payments from a Chinese-financed consulting group in 2018, before his brother Joe announced he was running for president. Grassley says that same year James Biden and the president’s son, Hunter, received monthly retainers totaling $165,000 — $100,000 to Hunter and $65,000 to James…

In a September 2020 report with Senator Ron Johnson, Republican of Wisconsin, Grassley alleged Hunter, James, and James’s wife Sara tapped into a line of credit Hunter set up with a Chinese business executive to purchase more than $100,000 in airline tickets, hotels and restaurants…

CBS News has also learned more than 150 financial transactions involving either Hunter or James Biden’s global business affairs were flagged as concerning by U.S. banks for further review.

Hunter isn’t an aberration. He’s not just an addict feeding his addiction. This is just how the Biden family acts.

Biden Kept Doing Favors for Hunter’s Foreign Business Interests

The Biden administration keeps claiming that there was some sort of firewall between Joe and Hunter. And yet the repeated pattern of Joe Biden holding meetings with and doing favors for Hunter’s foreign business partners tells another story.

President Joe Biden wrote a college recommendation letter to Brown University for the son of a Chinese executive tied to Hunter Biden, according to emails that originated on the younger Biden’s laptop.

In an email on Jan. 3, 2017, Chinese executive Jonathan Li asked Biden and business associates Devon Archer and Jim Bulger to look over his son Christopher’s resumes for Brown University, New York University, and Cornell University.

“Gentlemen, please find the attached resume of my son, Chris Li,” the email, obtained by Fox News, read. “Please can you provide some advice for his applications.”

A few weeks later, on Feb. 18, 2017, Eric Schwerin, the president of the younger Biden’s investment firm Rosemont Seneca, sent an email to Jonathan Li that included the recommendation letter.

“Jonathan, Hunter asked me to send you a copy of the recommendation letter that he asked his father to write on behalf of Christopher for Brown University,” Schwerin said.

It’s undeniable that Joe Biden was doing a favor for Hunter’s business partners. And there were meetings that kept happening.

President Joe Biden’s son and his associates targeted Russian oligarch Yelena Baturina — who eventually was sanctioned by the U.S. a few years later in 2018 — for as much as $200 million after helping her get a bank account set up in America, the emails show.

Hunter Biden and his associates even arranged for Baturina and her husband, an ex-Moscow mayor, to meet with then-Vice President Joe Biden at an intimate dinner in Washington in 2015.

Hunter and other Biden family members were clearly trading on access to their father and Joe Biden, as out of it as he may sometimes seem, no doubt knew what was going on.
