CNN host Erin Burnett said that evidence indicating that a Chinese company gave $3 million to a Biden family associate, who then sent major payments to the Biden family, "doesn't look good."
"It doesn't sound good," Burnett said Friday on CNN's "Erin Burnett OutFront," before recapping reporting about the financial trail linking the Biden family to a Chinese energy company.
"So, again, from a layperson, that doesn't look good. Is it damaging legally?" she asked her guest, former Defense Department Special Counsel Ryan Goodman.
"Not necessarily damaging legally," Goodman responded. "It looks potentially unethical, but it's difficult to match up with any illegality or crime."
The interview came after House Oversight and Accountability Committee Chairman James Comer last week said bank documents showed that "one company owned by a Biden associate received a $3 million dollar wire from a Chinese energy company two months after Joe Biden left the vice presidency."
The Kentucky Republican said: "Soon after, hundreds of thousands of dollars in payouts went to members of the Biden family."
