Hunter Biden Faces Congressional Scrutiny in Probe of Chinese Acquisition - The epoch Times
Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) named Hunter Biden as the source of a potential conflict of interest as part of a congressional inquiry into the purchase of an American maker of anti-vibration technologies. The company was acquired by a Chinese Communist Party-owned aviation company and an investment firm with ties to the party.
In a letter to Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin on Aug. 14, Grassley requested a copy of the National Security Threat Assessment tied to the transaction, asked for details about the approval timeline, and inquired about whether the White House was briefed on the relevant deliberations.
The Obama-era Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS) approved the transaction when Joe Biden, Hunter Biden’s father, was the vice president. Hunter Biden and Chris Heinz, the stepson of former Secretary of State John Kerry, both reportedly had stakes in Bohai Harvest RST, the firm that acquired Henniges, the anti-vibration technology manufacturer.
