In 1973, Tennessee’s Howard Baker asked the crucial question of the Watergate survey: What did the president know and when did he know? That question is just as appropriate today for President Biden regarding the multimillion-dollar investigation into his son, Hunter Biden, and the Biden family’s multimillion-dollar business.
The new evidence suggests that Joe Biden – while serving as vice president and preparing to run for president – was involved in and the financial recipient of Hunter Biden’s foreign business ventures. At the same time, President Biden pursued American foreign policy in many of the same countries, transporting his son around the world to run the family business while running America’s business.
In a recent grant committee hearing, I questioned Attorney General Merrick Garland regarding his department’s investigation into his boss’s family. The American people deserve response from President Biden regarding his involvement in this activity. As a minimum, any journalist should ask the following questions.
BIDEN PROBE NEED TO SAVE THE DEVELOPMENT OF FOREIGN FINANCIAL DEVELOPMENTS
Does the White House dispute the authenticity of emails, documents and other evidence recovered from Hunter Biden’s laptop regarding the family business?
Did Hunter Biden pay for Joe Biden’s personal expenses while serving as vice president, including maintaining Joe Biden’s large home on Lake Delaware? What were the sources of Hunter Biden’s income during this period?
An email from 2010 to Hunter Biden titled “JRB Bills” discussing payment for the maintenance of Joe Biden’s large home on the lake in Delaware, and Hunter Biden texted his daughter: “Don’t worry, unlike Pop [meaning Joe Biden] I will not force you to give me half your salary. ”
Is it true that Vice President Biden needed money? An 2010 email to Hunter Biden from business partner Eric Schwerin says, “Your dad just called me (about his mortgage) … he could use some positive news about his future earning potential.”
Relatively, why did Schwerin pay 27 visits to the White House while Joe Biden served as vice president, including at least one meeting with Vice President Biden and many others with several White House staff, one of whom had previously worked for Hunter Biden’s investment company? What was discussed at these meetings?
PSAKI AGAIN AVOIDS QUESTION ABOUT IF HUNTER BIDEN’S BUSINESS PARTNERS HAD SPECIAL ACCESS TO THE WHITE HOUSE
Why did Vice President Joe Biden have dinner in 2015 with Hunter Biden’s business associates that included a Burisma director – the Ukrainian energy company that pays Hunter Biden $ 1 million a year to sit on the board – and a Russian billionaire who paid Hunter’s company 3, $ 5 million around that time?
A 2015 Hunter Biden email to a participant says, “Okay – the reason for the dinner is apparently to discuss food safety. Dad wants to be there, but keep it between us for now.” What was the real purpose of the dinner?
Was Joe Biden “the big guy” for whom Hunter Biden had a 10% discount on a multi-million-dollar deal with a Chinese energy company? Tony Bobulinski, a veteran of the U.S. Navy and former business associate of Hunter Biden, says he is. Bobulinski stated that he traded directly with Joe Biden regarding some of Hunter’s business connections. This is confirmed by a text message from Biden employee James Gilliar, who warned Bobulinski about a Chinese energy deal: “Do not mention that Joe is involved … I know you know, but they are paranoid.”

When did Hunter Biden sell his stake in a Chinese joint venture called BHR Partners, which he owned with the Chinese Communist Party, and for how much money? This venture was formed in 2013, around when Hunter Biden traveled to China on Air Force Two and introduced Vice President Biden to his future CEO, a Chinese citizen named Johnathan Li.
If, as Attorney General Merrick Garland says, this investigation is being conducted impartially and independently, then why are senior White House officials going on national television to explain how they think the investigation should proceed?
Earlier this month, White House Chief of Staff Ron Klain said on national television: “The president is convinced his son did not break the law.” White House Communications Director Kate Bedingfield said President Biden believes his son did “nothing” [that] was unethical. “
It is clear that President Biden had knowledge of and involvement in Hunter Biden’s business agreements.

The White House refuses to talk about any of this, suggesting that it is a kind of personal, private civil case, despite the now seemingly extensive merger between the Biden office portfolio and the Biden family business.
The overarching question remains: While Joe Biden led US foreign policy in China, Ukraine and elsewhere as vice president, what did he know about his son’s agreements with influential leaders in the same countries to generate many millions of dollars for the benefit of the Biden family, and when he it?
