Hunter Biden is currently facing two misdemeanor tax violations and a felony gun charge as well as accusations from Republicans that he has sold access to his father.
Reports from Fox have revealed nearly a dozen current or former administration officials who have extensive ties to him dating back over a decade, including Secretary of State Antony Blinken, National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan, Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin’s top aide, five other White House aides, and Jill Biden’s communications director who is on leave from her role.
Most recently, Mike McCormick accused Sullivan of being involved in a “kickback scheme” within the Biden family concerning Ukraine during Joe Biden’s vice presidency – an allegation in which Sullivan has denied.
Hunter Biden and Jake Sullivan, President Biden’s national security adviser, were both affiliated with the Truman National Security Project, a liberal foreign policy think tank, for approximately two years. Their association ended when Sullivan joined the president’s campaign in 2020, Fox News noted.
The both served on the board of the Washington-based nonprofit during the period 2017 to early 2019. Internet archives from the Wayback Machine indicate that Hunter began his tenure on the board in 2012.
Simultaneously, Hunter held positions on the board of Burisma Holdings, a Ukrainian energy company, and BHR Partners, a Chinese private equity fund. An ongoing federal investigation into Hunter’s foreign business activities was initiated in 2018, coinciding with the timeline.
This revelation comes in addition to emails reviewed by Fox showing that Blinken met with Hunter at the State Department in July 2015 when Blinken was serving as deputy secretary of state in the Obama-Biden administration; this meeting took place while Hunter was also serving on Burisma Holdings board – casting further doubt on ethical standards within Joe Biden’s circle of advisors.
The seriousness of these allegations cannot be understated – especially considering how close many of these individuals are to President Joe Biden himself.
