Presidential candidate Joe Biden’s son Hunter received a cushy, fifty thousand dollar per month job while his dad was vice president. It turns out, Hunter’s infamous job with a Ukrainian company was just the tip of the “thank you daddy dearest” resume iceberg.
A RealClearInvestigations examination has found that the 50-year-old son of the Democratic candidate has his father to thank for his entire resume. National Review reports of RCI’s findings, “virtually all the jobs listed on his resume going back to his first position out of college, which paid a six-figure salary, came courtesy of the former six-term senator’s donors, lobbyists and allies.”
A six-figure salary right out of college is everyone’s dream, but not everyone had a father who had already put in decades of work in powerful political positions. RCI found specific details of Hunter’s paved path, including how one Biden associate admitted to “finding employment” for Hunter solely as a favor to Joe Biden. At the time, the elder Biden was a Senate leader running for president.
Pops also “secured a $1.2 million gig on Wall Street for his young son, even though it was understood he had no experience in high finance.” But not to worry, reports National Review, “many of his generous patrons, in turn, ended up with legislation and policies favorable to their businesses or investments, an RCI review of lobbying records and legislative actions taken by the elder Biden confirms.”
Joe Biden has repeatedly insisted he has never spoken with his son about any business dealings. A virtual impossibility, Republican legislatures have information which has led “no fewer than three committees in the Republican-controlled Senate have opened probes into potential Biden family conflicts.” Investigations are underway looking over Treasury Department records “that have flagged suspicious activities involving Hunter’s banking transactions and business deals that may be connected to his father’s political influence.”
National Review notes there could be actual legal ramifications due to “possible influence-peddling, government watchdogs and former federal investigators say.”
