Hunter Biden Flips The Script, Asks GOP About Kushner's $2B Saudi Deal

Wednesday’s episode of ‘Get Hunter Biden’ was another shitshow with zero pieces of evidence revealed that ties the President to his son’s business dealings. And Hunter took the opportunity to flip the script on his interrogators as he defended his father and attacked the impeachment inquiry by bringing up Jared Kushner’s dubious $2 billion deal with Saudi Prince Bonesaws, who, after murdering a journalist became an ally of the Trump administration.

The Hill reports:

He (Hunter) asked GOP lawmakers about foreign investments secured by Jared Kushner, the son-in-law of former President Trump, shortly after he left the White House, according to Democrats participating in the closed-door deposition.

“He drew the distinction between what he has done in a business world with independent businessmen, versus foreign governments, which he did not do any business with — unlike Jared Kushner,” Rep. Dan Goldman (D-N.Y.) said during a break in the testimony.

Among other roles, Kushner oversaw Middle East policy in the Trump White House, and he raised plenty of eyebrows when he secured a $2 billion investment from Saudi Arabia six months after leaving public service.

The scrutiny mounted further when The New York Times reported that the advisory panel for the Saudi sovereign wealth fund had recommended against investing in Kushner’s newly launched private equity firm, citing “the inexperience of the … management.” The advice was overruled by a larger board led by Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, a close ally of the Trump administration.

Hunter became “assertive.”

Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-Md.) said the questioning throughout the morning has been largely cordial, but Hunter Biden became “assertive” when invoking the Kushner episode.

“He may be a little bit frustrated by some of the double standards relating to Jared Kushner and money that’s just been openly pocketed by Donald Trump in office,” Raskin said. “And Jared Kushner, of course, brought back $2 billion from Saudi Arabia. And all of that has been a part of the conversation, and he was assertive about that.”

When Democrats controlled the House, they opened an investigation into Kushner’s deal with Saudi Arabia. It was dropped when Republicans flipped the chamber and Rep. James Comer (R-Ky.) took the reins of the Oversight and Accountability Committee, which is now leading the impeachment investigation into Biden.

Republicans like to say that Hunter didn’t have the experience to sit on the board of Burisma. He did have experience in corporate governance, whereas Jared Kushner does not, and Hunter is a private citizen. Jared worked with his father-in-law’s administration. He does have experience as a slumlord, though. Hypocrisy, thy name is GOP. It’s like when they demean Hunter for overcoming the disease of addiction while ignoring Don Jr’s current drug abuse problem.
