The Biden administration only took over the White House last week, but it’s already had to grapple with a web of ethical dilemmas created by the complicated business dealings of President Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris’s families.
Biden’s campaign was dogged by allegations that his youngest son, lobbyist-investor Hunter, profited from the Biden name, specifically in China and Ukraine. His lucrative role with oligarch-linked Ukrainian energy company Burisma Holdings, for instance, was central to former President Donald Trump’s first impeachment.
And during the transition, it was revealed Hunter was under a federal tax investigation dating back to 2018 into his foreign associations and accusations of money laundering.
Now Biden Inc. is causing problems for the White House.
