Jonathon Turley: President "clearly benefited" from Hunter's business activities

 August 11, 2023

For years, President Joe Biden has categorically denied that he ever discussed business matters with his son Hunter Biden.

However, one legal expert recently pointed to smoking gun evidence showing the president not only discussed Hunter Biden's dealings but actively benefited from them.

Twenty million dollars went to Biden family members

That case was made by George Washington University Law School Professor Jonathan Turley in an op-ed piece published by the New York Post on Wednesday.

Turley pointed to bank records released by House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer showing Biden family members took in over $20 million from foreign figures.

According to the Post, those figures included Kazakhstani businessman Kenes Rakishev, who provided Hunter Biden with $142,300 in 2014 to buy a luxury car.

"During Joe Biden's vice presidency, Hunter Biden sold him as 'the brand' to reap millions from oligarchs in Kazakhstan, Russia, and Ukraine," Comer was quoted as saying in a statement.

"It appears no real services were provided other than access to the Biden network, including Joe Biden himself," the Kentucky Republican went on to add.

President's denials "have finally been exposed as lies"

This led Turley to assert that "Joe Biden’s prior claims have been collapsing as his allies in the media and Congress struggle for an alternative spin on these new disclosures."

"The president’s denials of any knowledge of his son’s foreign dealings have finally been exposed as lies," Turley continued.

Indeed, Biden's denial of having anything to do with his son's overseas business activities date back to when he was running for president four years ago.

President secured money for his children "without heavy taxes or delays"

Yet as Turley noted, "Even the Washington Post has acknowledged Biden lied when he insisted that Hunter never made any money in China." Turley also pointed to "the testimony of associate Devon Archer," someone whom Joe Biden sent a letter to while serving as vice president under Barack Obama.

As Turley drew to a close, he insisted that "Biden clearly benefited from millions going to the Biden Family Fund (BFF). Even grandchildren received some of the transfers funneled through a labyrinth of accounts."

"For most wealthy people in their final years, the challenge is not raising more money but getting that money to your children without heavy taxes or delays," he noted. This money was going to his BFF. That is a benefit and probably of greater value to a man of Joe Biden’s age and wealth."
