Schweizer: Unlike Don Trump Jr., Biden’s Son Hunter ‘Actually HAD Foreign Deals’
The pressure on Joe Biden over collusion concerning his son Hunter in China and the Ukraine has heated up and the Ukraine is offering up investigations. Joe Biden made some deals with both nations, that generously profited his son. Peter Schweizer, President of the Government Accountability Institute, contrasts the situation with Don Jr’s, “deal that actually never happened” in Russia.
When you look at the two cases in parallel, it’s really astonishing that the one they are most fixated on is the one with Don Jr.,” stated Schweizer. “Why do I say that? First of all, in the case of the Moscow Trump Tower deal, there was no deal. It was something that was talked about. It was something that they were hopeful they were going to be able to negotiate, but nothing was even close to ever being consummated. So there was never a deal.”
Yet twice, in both the Ukraine and China, Joe Biden was involved in negotiations in the role of Vice President, that significantly benefited his son, and those deals definitely went through.
In the Ukraine, Joe Biden extorted the government, threatening to cut off $1 billion in U.S. loan guarantees to the country if the Ukrainian government did not fire the prosecutor who was about to investigate a company Hunter had connections to. Joe Biden admits it. The NYT reports it. Enough said.

Joe Biden bragged about his success at a speech before the Council on Foreign Relations last year. He was very proud of his use of strong-arm tactics to get the prosecutor fired. Ol’ Joe never mentioned the natural gas firm Burisma Holdings that employed Hunter, as a board member… or Hunter himself.
He stated that he told the Ukrainians, “If the prosecutor is not fired, you’re not getting the money.” Biden then boasted, “Well, son of a bitch, he got fired.”
Schweizer expands, “Contrast that [Trump Hotel Deal] with the case of Hunter Biden. Hunter Biden actually has real deals. The Ukrainian energy company Burisma actually transferred $3.1 million to an account over 14 months that he drew money from. There was a deal there.
Schweizer continues, “The deal with the Chinese, same thing. he flies over on Air Force Two with his father – ten days after they return, his firm has a $1.5 billion private equity deal with the Chinese government.”
“In the Don Jr. case, there’s no deal that’s ever consummated,” added Schweizer. “In the second instance, you have multiple deals that were consummated.”
Schweizer also remarked, “In the case of the Bidens, you actually had foreign deals. In the case of the Trumps, no deal was consummated. The second difference, of course, was that the Bidens were in political office [and] had political power. The Trumps didn’t. The third contrast … [is that] the Trumps in the Moscow Tower deal, they were actually in the business of building hotels.”
“They’ve built a lot of them around the world. They’ve been involved in a lot of projects. They have background in that. The deals that Hunter Biden procured — he had no background in China, he had no background in Ukraine, and he had no background in private equity — it had all the markings of a sweetheart deal, cronyism and corruption.”
Fascinating if you really think about it. What Joe and son did, is so blatantly wrong. The media and the left are both silent.
But I am sure, that we will find out more as time goes on. We are entering the deep end of the republican primary…and I am sure that as Joe Biden is at the top, his own party will throw everything but the kitchen sink at him.
