White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki acquired a bit snippy Monday after Newsmax correspondent Emerald Robinson requested if Hunter Biden has bought his remaining stake in a Chinese personal fairness agency with ties to the Chinese Communist Party.
“I’d point you to his representatives on that,” Psaki mentioned. Hunter “doesn’t work in the administration.” When Robinson tried to comply with up, the flack acquired quick, saying: “You should talk to his representatives. That remains his policy. He’s been working to wind that down.”
Huh? No, Hunter’s not a part of Joe’s administration, however he is the prez’s son, and candidate Biden swore up and down the entire household would divest from all abroad enterprise pursuits. In October 2019, for instance, he vowed, “No one in my family . . . will, in fact, have any business relationship with anyone that relates to a foreign corporation or a foreign country.”
That Hunter Biden’s firm (Skaneateles LLC) nonetheless owns 10 % of BHR Partners, which is managed by the state-run Bank of China, is a transparent violation of what the White House says are the foundations for Biden’s household.
Psaki’s refusal to reply a easy yes-or-no query on that subject is proof that the president can’t, or received’t, make his son comply with his personal guidelines on ethics.
