The hits just keep on coming for Hunter Biden, son of former Vice President Joe Biden, a top presidential contender for Democrats in 2020.
The Biden campaign had already been struggling to deal with allegations surrounding Hunter Biden’s dubious business dealings in Ukraine and China, and now new allegations of potential impropriety have emerged from Africa.
It was recently reported that a China-funded private equity firm Biden was involved with, Bohai Harvest RSB, was up until only recently heavily invested in an alleged “blood mine” in the Democratic Republic of Congo.
