Last year, then-presidential candidate Joe Biden had to face lots of questions concerning his son’s overseas business dealings.
Hunter Biden is still reportedly under investigation, and many politicians and lawmakers are concerned about the Biden family’s connections.
This includes an alleged connection to a businessman who’s facing serious federal charges.
After the presidential election back in 2012, one of Biden’s advisers encouraged the then-VP’s sons to cultivate useful relationships.
Specifically, he wanted Hunter and Beau Biden to get closer to wealthy businessmen and donors to “bring them closer to Team Biden.”
But one of those connections is proving problematic.
According to The Daily Caller:
A Pakistani-American businessman awaiting sentencing on federal charges developed close ties to members of Joe Biden’s inner circle and met multiple times with him when he served as vice president, emails show.
Imaad Zuberi is now waiting to be sentenced for his apparent crimes.
These crimes include tax evasion, obstruction, foreign agent violations, and campaign finance violations.
Federal prosecutors claim Zuberi illegally utilized millions of dollars in political contributions, just to get closer to certain politicians.
He was doing so to allegedly boost his business interests, and it seems they have evidence that shows multiple meetings with the Bidens.
For example, emails show Hunter Biden met with Zuberi in Beverly Hills in 2014.
And according to more emails released in the case last week, Zuberi and two business associates met with Joe Biden in Morocco in November of that same year.
Part of the email reads:
Here are your business partner’s photos with The Vice President of the United States of America.
Now that Joe Biden is President, his family’s connections are going to come under heavier scrutiny.
And this is the sort of thing that could cause problems in the future, and potentially damage the President’s reputation.
- The Biden family evidently has connections to a businessman, who’s currently facing serious federal charges.
- Imaad Zuberi is charged with tax evasion, obstruction, foreign agent violations, and campaign finance violations.
- Zuberi apparently met with both Hunter and Joe Biden in 2014.
