Joe Biden is trying to become the country’s next President. But while he’s on the campaign trail, his son will have to deal with more controversy surrounding his ties to China.
A new documentary by best-selling author Peter Schweizer chronicles Biden’s connections to the communist country. And some of Schweizer’s claims are raising eyebrows.
The film is called “Riding the Dragon: The Bidens’ Chinese Secrets,” and it doesn’t beat around the bush.
The narrative tackles Hunter Biden’s position as a board member of the Beijing-based BHR Partners investment firm, and it’s a hard-hitting commentary.
Schweizer believes Biden’s business dealings actually had a negative impact on America. And it only furthered the interests of China.
As previewed by The Post and via Fox News:
Hunter Biden’s business dealings in China served the ‘strategic interests’ of the country’s communist government and military — and may have imperiled American national security, claims a new documentary exclusively previewed by The Post.
The firm in question paints Biden in a negative light as well.
They claim he only got meetings with Chinese officials “because of who his father was.” At the time, Joe Biden was Vice President in the Barack Obama administration.
Furthermore, after the founding of BHR in 2013, the firm “began making investment deals around the world that would serve the strategic interests of the Chinese government.”
Specifically, Schweizer’s film says these investment deals served the interests of the Chinese military. And that’s another major issue in the eyes of many.
The documentary also goes after the Biden family as a whole:
For example, this includes the mention of Chi Ping Patrick Ho, an executive with CEFC China Energy Co. He was arrested by the FBI in 2017 for bribing African officials.
And according to Schweizer, one of Ho’s “first calls” was to James Biden, Joe Biden’s brother.
At the time, James said he thought Ho was trying to reach Hunter and when he couldn’t, he got his nephew’s contact information.
‘Why exactly was he calling Hunter Biden? What sort of help was he expecting?’ Schweizer asks.
We don’t know the answer to that question. But what we do know is that the Bidens have cultivated very close relationships with members of the Chinese elite.
Whether or not this impacts Joe Biden’s presidential campaign remains to be seen. But it’s likely he’ll have to answer more questions concerning his son’s overseas dealings.
And one of those questions is: “Did Hunter’s dealings in China really hurt the U.S. in some way?”
