US president's son's business
US lawyer Kevin Evans, who has sued the US Department of Justice, has said that White House chief of staff Joe Biden's administration refuses to publicise information about the business activities of the president's son Hunter Biden in China, Russia and Ukraine.
According to Evans, an attorney who went to court in March after authorities refused to consider his Freedom of Information Act request to disclose Hunter Biden's business dealings, presidential administration lawyers in a Colorado district court first confirmed the existence of at least 400 pages of "potentially relevant" documents but then said they could "neither confirm nor deny" their existence.
It is worth noting that in a published interview with Britain's Daily Mail newspaper, the Greenwood Village-based lawyer revealed that the next hearing in the case will take place during January.
Also, Senator Chuck Grassley said that James Biden is the focus of investigators looking into Hunter Biden's business dealings.
Grassley and Senator Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) published a September 2020 report on Biden's business dealings.
In April, the two senators released new documents delving into the Biden family's business dealings.
The documents revealed that Hunter Biden and Jim Biden received monthly payments of $100,000 and $65,000 respectively as part of a consulting agreement in August 2017 between the first son and Gunwen Dong, a senior CEFC China Energy official.
The media had previously published data from a laptop belonging to Hunter Biden on more than one occasion. The correspondence revealed that he may have arranged for a representative of the Ukrainian energy company Burisma Holdings, on whose board he served, to meet with his father at a time when he was US vice president.
Biden senior, while in office, called for the dismissal of Ukraine's Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin, who launched an investigation into Burisma Holdings. For its part, The Washington Post reported in March that Hunter Biden allegedly received nearly $5m from the Chinese energy company CEFC.
