White House spox cornered on Hunter Biden’s 10% stake in a Chinese investment fund

The Biden White House responds to inquiries about Hunter Biden and his dubious business practices — as few as there are — by acting as if the first son’s actions have nothing to do with the administration.

In a sure sign that President Biden has been nixed as the potential 2024 Democratic Party presidential nominee, Hunter Biden is getting more attention lately — almost two years after the “laptop from hell” story first broke in the days ahead of the 2020 election and was summarily censored and otherwise blackballed by the media and Big Tech.

On Thursday, White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre wanted nothing to do with an inquiry about the president’s son possibly still holding a stake in a Chinese investment fund.

“Online business records suggest that the first son still holds a 10 percent stake in a Chinese investment fund. Is it possible to have basic transparency there on whether he actually divested that stake or not?” she was asked.

“I would refer you to his representatives,” Jean Pierre replied.

Yet, earlier this month, in what appeared to be an attempt to mainstream the president’s disgraced son, the New York Post reported that the White House gave Hunter Biden a front-row seat during the Presidential Medal of Freedom ceremony, noting that he had been “a fixture in Washington this week.” The younger Biden, who is currently under investigation by the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Delaware ​for alleged tax fraud and money laundering related to his international business interests, acted almost as an emissary for the administration at the event.

The mention of a 10 percent stake immediately calls to mind the message discovered in Hunter’s laptop about a 10 percent cut of a proposed deal with China’s largest private energy company going to the “big guy.” With the younger Biden’s business being trading on his father’s famous name, it doesn’t require a vivid imagination to speculate on who that might be.

Here’s a quick sampling of responses to the story from Twitter:
