An ex-Google executive reportedly claimed Hunter asked Google for funding for Chinese ventures
The Facts Inside Our Reporter’s Notebook
Hunter Biden's hard drive had the contact information of U.S. officials overseeing policy on China and at least 10 Google executives, raising more concerns about his questionable business dealings possibly made through father President Joe Biden's connections, The New York Post reported.
Hunter Biden turned to Google to ask for funding for Chinese ventures, a former executive at the company told the Post on Saturday. Several higher-ups at the company ultimately worked for the Obama-Biden administration when Biden was vice president, the executive also said.
The contacts for former Secretary of State John Kerry and former U.S. Ambassador to China Max Baucus, who both held their positions while Biden was vice president, were also apparently found on Hunter Biden's laptop that was left at a Delaware repair store in 2019.
The discovery of the laptop and its content because a major storyline in the closing months and weeks of the 2020 presidential election campaign in which Biden, a Democrat, defeated incumbent GOP President Donald Trump. Only months ago did mainstream news media outlets acknowledge the veracity of both.
The Post called Kerry's number and reached his answering machine, but the outlet was unable to reach Baucus, who had a Chinese number listed.
The report comes after a Trafalgar/Convention of States survey in April showed that nearly two-thirds of U.S. voters believe that President Biden is compromised because of his and his family's ties to China.
Rep. James Comer (R-Ky.) told Just the News last week that if Republicans take back Congress this fall, they plan on investigating how Hunter Biden has compromised his father's foreign policy.
"We feel that Hunter Biden is a national security threat," Comer said. "We've been poring over his financial records for many weeks now, and it's troubling."
Less than two years into his father's vice presidency, Hunter Biden visited China in 2010 as a representative of his investment fund Rosemont Seneca, where he connected with officials at state-linked financial groups, the Post reported.
His business connections in the communist country appear to have continued over the next several years.
While many outlets initially denied the authenticity of Hunter Biden's laptop and its explosive allegations, more are now conceding that the laptop and its contents are real.
