Defiant Hunter Biden defends business moves, invokes Kushner deals

Hunter Biden, the star witness in the GOP’s impeachment investigation into his father, appeared Wednesday on Capitol Hill, where Republicans spent a long day drilling into the details of overseas business ventures they’ve portrayed as a web of corruption implicating President Biden.

Yet if Republicans were hoping to dig up the elusive evidence of financial wrongdoing to back their allegations, they didn’t seem to find it in the nearly seven hours of closed-door questioning with the president’s son.

Instead, a defiant Hunter Biden defended his various business dealings, amplified previous assertions that his father had no hand in those pursuits and turned the inquiry back onto Republicans by invoking the foreign business ventures of Jared Kushner, the son-in-law of former President Trump, who secured a huge investment deal from Saudi Arabia shortly after leaving the White House. 

“One of his most powerful lines was when he made it very clear that none of the business dealings that he ever had were with any government entity. And he pointed out: unlike Jared Kushner, who received $2 billion from the Saudi Arabian government as soon as he left office, when he was the point person on Middle Eastern policy,” said Rep. Dan Goldman (D-N.Y.).
