Online sources show Hunter Biden is still listed as a board member of the private Chinese company he promised to leave in October 2019.
On October 13, 2019, Hunter pledged to leave the Chinese private equity firm, BHR Partners, due to a presumable conflict of interest between his assets and his father Joe Biden’s presidential bid. There is no proof that Hunter ever resigned from his position.
According to the Daily Caller News Foundation, Hunter’s lawyer said his client resigned from BHR’s board, but provided no evidence. On April 15, 2020, the DCNF discovered Hunter was still listed as a director of BHR, implying Hunter may currently retain a 10 percent equity stake in BHR.
When Hunter pledged his resignation from the BHR board, his statement did not include whether he would relinquish his ownership stake, which is valued at $420,000.
DNCF’s Andrew Kerr reported two online sources that confirm Hunter’s current role. BHR’s file on China’s “National Enterprise Credit Information Publicity System” lists Hunter Biden as a director, while Qixianbo, an independent service that provides transparency for Chinese corporations, confirmed Hunter Biden is a board member as well.
In an interview with Axios on HBO in December 2019, Joe Biden said his children will no longer engage in foreign businesses.
“They will not be engaged in any foreign business because of what’s happened in this administration. No one’s going to be seeking patents for things from China. No one’s going to be engaged in that kind of thing,” Joe Biden said.
Months later, as Joe Biden becomes the presumptive 2020 Democratic nominee, Hunter appears to still have direct ties to this Chinese equity firm.
Donald Trump Jr. tweeted out the disparity in media coverage on Hunter Biden’s vested interest in China.
“Amazing that Hunters still on China’s payroll… and the media couldn’t care less. I’m sure they’d be cool with me doing the same,” Trump Jr. tweeted.
The media went into a full frenzy in an attempt expose Trump Jr. for his alleged “collusion” in the Russia collusion hoax. Yet, when verified proof emerges of the Democratic candidate’s son practicing shady business techniques, the media is silent.
