Peter Schweizer, president of the Government Accountability Institute and Breitbart News senior editor-at-large, highlighted the Biden family’s financial ties to the government of China — particularly in relation to Hunter Biden — in explaining Joe Biden’s refusal to acknowledge the world’s most populous country as a geopolitical threat to America.

Less than two weeks later, Hunter Biden’s firm inked a $1 billion private equity deal with a subsidiary of the Chinese government’s Bank of China. The deal was later expanded to $1.5 billion. In short, the Chinese government funded a business that it co-owned along with the son of a sitting vice president.
