Picture That Just Blows Up Joe Biden's Claim He Knew Nothing About His Son's Business

Remember Joe Biden’s insistence that he didn’t know anything about his son Hunter Biden’s business?

Well that’s been getting blown up with the bombshell revelations of lated.

Here’s one more thing that appears to blow Biden’s claims right out of the water.

Twitter has shut down the NY Post account since they started reporting about the Biden allegations. So they aren’t able to spread their latest story about this picture of Joe Biden meeting with another one of Hunter’s business partners, you know, those folks that he knew nothing about.

The man in the picture that Joe Biden is meeting with is Kenes Rakishev, a Kazakh oligarch, who reportedly was working with Hunter Biden. According to the NY Post, they haven’t been able to verify the picture it first appeared on a Kazakhstani anti-corruption website Kazhakhstani Initiative on Asset Recovery (KIAR) last year. Rakishev is on the left, the guy on the right is former prime minister Karim Massimov.

The Post says that Hunter Biden met regularly with Rakishev and Rakishev paid him to help him invest in New York, Washington, D.C. and a Nevada mining company.

But Rakishev, who enjoys close ties to Kazakhstan’s kleptocratic former president, reportedly ran into trouble when Western business partners realized that the opaque origins of his reported $300 million fortune could become a “liability,” the Mail reported.

But no worries, Hunter could smooth all that and make him look better apparently.

According to the Daily Mail:

The Mail can reveal that between 2012 and 2014, Hunter worked as a sort of go-between for Kenes Rakishev, a self-styled ‘international businessman, investor and entrepreneur’ with close family connections to the kleptocratic regime of his homeland’s despotic former president Nursultan Nazarbayev.

Emails passed to this newspaper via anti-corruption campaigners from the Central Asian country reveal that Biden Jr held extensive meetings with Rakishev, who was looking to invest a portion of his personal fortune in New York and Washington DC. He also travelled to the Kazakh capital of Astana to hold business discussions.

Hunter Biden then attempted to persuade Rakishev to buy into a Nevadan mining company, brokering a series of meetings with the firm, before convincing him to invest a cool million dollars with Alexandra Forbes Kerry, the film-maker daughter of Democrat Senator and former Presidential candidate John Kerry.

Rakishev, who wrote messages in broken English, appears to have become intimate with the Vice President’s son, calling Hunter ‘my brother!’ and ‘my brother from another mother!’.

They shared gossip about their family holidays and dined together at luxury restaurants in New York and Washington DC (‘I’m on vacation with family [at] Lake Michigan . . . trying to spend some much needed time with my wife and daughters. It’s my 20th anniversary of marriage tomorrow,’ Hunter told Rakishev in July 2013).

This comes on top of allegations that Joe Biden may have met with a Burisma advisor and then moved to fire the prosecutor who said he was investigating Burisma. The Biden team claimed there was no official meeting with the man but has not ruled out the possibility that he met with Vadim Pozharskyi informally. They also have not denied that the laptop where a lot of the information was found belonged to Hunter Biden.

Then there was Joe Biden taking Hunter to China on Air Force Two in 2013. There, Hunter met with Jonathan Li as part of making a deal with him and reportedly also introduced him to his father the Vice President.

For ‘never discussing’ his son’s business with him, Joe Biden seems to just keep bumping into Hunter’s business partners. Accidentally, of course. Not at all about influence peddling.

It’s becoming hard for the liberal media to deny all the evidence as the scandal gets louder against Joe Biden. The only question is why this didn’t explode before? We all know the answer: no one was ever prosecuted for anything during the Obama administration despite the numerous scandals and bad actions and the media was happy to toss the stories aside and not cover them.
