WASHINGTON (TND) – There's a series of new questions about ties between President Joe Biden, his family and China.
They come with the publishing of a new book – which is currently a best seller on Amazon – that provides hundreds of pages of details and evidence of lucrative business deals made by Joe Biden’s son, Hunter, which appear to have also benefited his entire family financially.
"Red Handed: How American Elites Get Rich Helping China Win" is by Peter Schweizer, who also serves as president of the Government Accountability Institute.
The links he outlines date back to Joe Biden’s first stint in the White House, when he served as vice president under former President Barack Obama.
Schweizer writes about several off-the-books meetings involving Hunter Biden, top officials in the Chinese Communist Party and Joe Biden as well.
“There are instances where the White House visitor logs don’t show a meeting but Chinese executive or government officials report on those meetings in the Chinese media," Schweizer said in an interview Thursday.
He also laid out compelling evidence that show not only was the vice president present at those meetings, but that they were followed by five separate business deals that helped earn Biden family $31 million.
Still, Schweizer said the money is not the top concern, connecting the dots of many of the Chinese businessmen involved and how they were actually part of Chinese intelligence services.
This includes Che Feng, a man referred to by Hunter Biden as “the super chairman” for his ability to get anything done.
“While he was arranging deals for Hunter Biden and China, his partners were with the vice minister for state security in China. This is a man who is responsible for recruiting foreigners to spy on behalf of China," Schweizer said.
While the deals unquestionably helped give China a leg up in the United States, Schweizer questions whether they could also have national security implications.
“You have to raise the question of whether the Biden family is somehow compromised by Chinese intelligence because of these deals that they have some leverage over them," Schweizer added.
The Department of Justice revealed it is investigating Hunter Biden's finances and confirmed to CNN that investigation is tied to dealings with China.
Schweizer's evidence relies not just on Hunter Biden’s emails he says have all been corroborated, but from thousands of open source records and financial documents from both the United States and China, some previously investigated by a group of Republicans in the Senate, which released a report on its findings in Sept. 2020.
It's a report Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, often reminds colleagues about in speeches on the Senate floor, including a recent one on Nov. 29, 2021.
“These are the main companies that Hunter Biden and his associated used to funnel money all over the world," Grassley said using a visual aid.
If Republicans take control of the House next year, they will most likely unleash a series of similar investigations, using Schweizer’s book as a roadmap providing sources, travel logs and financial documents to give them a head start.
