Majority Believes Biden Acted Inappropriately Regarding Hunter’s Business Dealings

A majority of the public believes that President Joe Biden acted inappropriately in regard to his son Hunter’s business dealings. The survey results come as the younger Biden is expected to face federal charges later this month.

According to the recent CNN poll, 55% of the public said that the president acted inappropriately, including 52% of independent voters. Those who believed that the president’s actions were incorrect included 24% of Democrats.

The poll also found that 61% believe that Biden was directly involved in his son’s business deals. Companies tied to Hunter Biden received millions of dollars from foreign sources, including China, Russia, Romania and Ukraine.

Special counsel David Weiss is expected to charge the president’s son later this month. The exact charges are not known, but a plea deal involving firearms and tax issues fell apart this summer.

Congressional Republicans have expanded their investigation into the Biden family’s business dealings.

Rep. James Comer (R-KY) called the Biden family’s actions “organized crime.”

“I could make the argument that there’s already enough evidence to point to Joe being the ringleader of this, not just knowing, not just lying about it, but being the ringleader,” he said.

The Kentucky Republican cited the creation of a number of shell companies related to Hunter Biden, which Comer said could have allowed for “money laundering.” He further said that six banks flagged more than 170 “large” transactions from the Biden-linked accounts.

Comer said that the “evidence points to this being organized.”

Much of the information regarding the Hunter Biden investigation has come from IRS whistleblower Gary Shapley, who described how Weiss was reportedly blocked from charging the president’s son in both southern California and Washington D.C.

Furthermore, information regarding then-Vice President Biden’s directive to Ukraine to fire a veteran prosecutor has faced more scrutiny. Biden promised to withhold $1 billion in American aid unless the country’s president fired Viktor Shokin, who was investigating Burisma. Hunter Biden served on the energy company’s board at a stipend of about $1 million per year.
