Just The News reported on Hunter Biden’s selling of America.
But for U.S. security pros, it was notable for another reason: an investment finance called Bohai Harvest RST (BHR) partially owned and led at Biden’s son, Hunter, as well as Secretary of State John Kerry’s stepson, Chris Heinz, had only a few years earlier played an essential role in facilitating the selling of their Michigan-based auto parts maker Henniges Automotive to among China’s main military aircraft makers, Aviation Industry Corporation of China or AVIC.
This 2015 transaction accepted by the Obama government and its Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS) came only 15 months after the United States publicly added among AVIC’s subsidiaries to a Commerce Department blacklist (known as the”Entity List”) and only months prior to the Obama government resumed patrols in the South China Sea due to increased Beijing army aggression in the area, in which AVIC-built army jets partake in China’s activities.
The time has left many, such as Senate Finance Committee chairman Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa), questioning whether the CFIUS decision whitewashed security worries because the vice president’s son was included in the transaction. Those worries were heightened this June if the Pentagon listed the total AVIC conglomerate on a list of businesses subject to prospective sanctions due to its connections to the People’s Liberation Army.
“The direct participation of Mr. Hunter Biden and Mr. Heinz at the acquisition of Henniges by the Chinese authorities produces a potential conflict of interest,” the senator wrote in an Aug. 14, 2019 letter. “Both are directly related to high-ranking Obama government officials. The Department of State, subsequently under Mr. Kerry’s direction, is also a CFIUS member and played an integral role in the decision to approve the Henniges transaction. The look of potential conflicts in this instance is particularly troubling given Mr. Biden’s and Mr. Heinz’s history of investing in and cooperating with Chinese firms, such as at least one posing important national security concerns”
