According to the left Hunter Biden’s involvement in foreign businesses is a distraction from the “crimes” the President committed. However, Burisma and its dealings in Ukraine aren’t the only scandalous “distractions” involving Biden. In fact, that’s only one example in a 20+ year saga.
Officially the former Vice President’s son is a lawyer and a consultant, but those titles do not even begin to explain who he is and what he does. Most of Hunter’s adult life has revolved around sweetheart deals and opportunities parallel to his father’s political dealings. It is possible that it is all coincidence, but after reading this you can decide for yourself.
The Early Years
Fresh out of Yale Law School and still wet behind the ears, Biden took a position at MBNA America. MBNA is a major bank holding company and you guessed it… a major contributor to the elder Biden’s political campaigns. In 1998 he became the company’s Executive Vice President.
Also in 1998 he started what every person fresh out of law school does, a three year term with the United States Department of Commerce. Then in 2001 he left the minor leagues and became a lobbyist and co-founded the firm of Oldaker, Biden & Belair. During this time Biden and his father allegedly never discussed OB&B’s clients.
Hunter’s Yale connections paid off in 2006 when President Bush appointed him to the board of directors of Amtrak. He rode that train until 2009 when he founded the investment firm Rosemont with John Kerry’s step son Christopher Heinz and well connected pal Devon Archer.
Biden, Heinz and Archer founded Rosemont Capital in 2009. In addition to Rosemont the three friends also established a series of related LLCs. According to an email revealed as part of a Securities and Exchange Commission investigation, Rosemont described themselves as “a $2.4 billion private equity firm co-owned by Hunter Biden and Chris Heinz,” with Devon Archer as “Managing Partner.”
Rosemont Seneca Partners was the largest and most interesting of the various deals that Rosemont was involved. Shortly after opening Rosemont Seneca Biden and Archer were in China with unprecented access. Over the next several years, as both Joe Biden and John Kerry negotiated sensitive deals with foreign governments, Rosemont entities secured a series of exclusive deals with those same foreign governments.
In China Rosemont Seneca aligned with another consultancy called the Thornton Group. This highly connected firm is headed by the nephew of the mob hitman James “Whitey” Bulger. According to the Thornton Group, the three Americans met with the largest and most powerful government fund leaders in China.
Their first high-level meeting took place in China only hours before Vice President Biden met with Chinese President Hu in Washington. In 2011 another meeting took place weeks after the US-China meetings in Washington.
In 2013 Hunter accompanied the Vice President on a diplomatic trip to China. Where Hunter Biden spent most of his time on the trip is unknown. However, it’s during this time that Rosemont Seneca Partners were negotiating their largest deal to date.
Less than two weeks after the trip RSP inked a deal with high-level Chineese officials. Miraculously, the Chineses government’s Bank of China, was now in business with Rosemont Seneca. The one billion investment became known as Bohai Harvest RST (BHR).
In the most simple of terms the Chinese Government was funding a business partnership wtih members of two of DC’s most prominent political families. This was only the beggining, since its genesis BHR has created an elaborate web of financial dealings within the communist country. It is these dealings that President Trump referred when he recently suggested that China investigate Biden.
United States Navy Reserve
In a move that is best described as odd, Biden was selected as a direct commission officer in the Navy Reserve. This came in 2013 after he received two waivers. The first of which was an age-related waiver and a second waiver due to a past drug-related incident.
In what was his shortest-lived of big moves Hunter tested positive for cocaine a month later and faced discharge. The matter was not appealed due to the likelihood of his discharge leaking to the press. Later a Navy Official provided the information to the Wall Street Journal anonymously.
The obvious question in regards to Burisma and Hunter Biden is simple. How did the son of an American politician end up on the board of a energy exploration and production company based in Kyiv, Ukraine? I guess it could have been under recommendation of Devon Archer who was also on the board at that time.

Yes, THAT Devon Archer.
Hunter’s partner in Rosemont Capital and senior campaign advisor of John Kerry’s failed 2004 Presidential run.
The controversy really began to heat up in March 2014. Russia annexed the Crimean peninsula and Joe Biden took point on all US led negotiations. A month later Hunter, with ZERO experience working in Ukraine or the energy sector, was appointed to the board of Burisma Holdings.
His compensation plan with Burisma is largely unknown but is reported to have been in the neighborhood of $50,000 per month.
The trouble at Burisma started almost immediately after Hunter joined. During a money laundering investigation the United Kingdom froze bank accounts that allegedly belonged to Mykola Zlochevsky the owner of Burisma Holdings. This led to subsequent investigations into Burisma by Ukrainian officials including Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin.
For reasons officially unknown Joe Biden pressured the Ukrainian government to remove Shokin two years in to the investigation. In fact, Biden threatened to withhold ONE BILLION dollars in loan guarantees if it did not. The former Vice President went on to brag about the firing during an event years later.
Is Hunter Biden an entreprenurial ne’er-do-well that happens to always be in the right time at the right place?
Should he really receive such little scrutiny?
If a sitting President vows to “drain the swamp” and you are a resident of that disgusting eco system what would you do?
The Biden’s and Democrats are choosing impeachment and along with their cronies in the lamestream media they have been able to all but erase Hunter’s mysterious history.
Make of it what you will but to me it’s very clear and it is right in our faces.
