Brandon agreed to pay son Hunter’s legal fees for his deal with a Chinese government-controlled company, emails reveal.
The revelation ties the president even closer to Hunter’s overseas business dealings – and makes his previous claims that he never discussed them with his son, even less plausible.
Joe was able to pay the bills after earning millions of dollars through his and his wife’s companies after he left office as vice president.
Some of the wave of cash came from their book deals and speaking engagements.
But the president’s financial filings reveal that he declared almost $7million more income on his tax returns than he did on his government transparency reports, an analysis by DailyMail.com of the president’s financial records shows.
Some of that difference can be accounted for with salaries earned by First Lady Jill Brandon and other sums not required on his reports – but still leaves $5.2million earned by Joe’s company and not listed on his transparency reports.
The ‘missing millions’ – combined with emails on Hunter’s abandoned laptop suggesting Joe would have a 10% share in Hunter’s blockbuster deal with the Chinese – raise a troubling question: did Brandon receive money from the foreign venture?
We know that Hunter made millions from overseas. Hunter’s former business associate met with Brandon and was thrown under the bus before the 2020 Election when he discussed Brandon’s roll before the 2020 Election.
We also know that Hunter made millions from China. Brandon was involved. Bobulinski claimed he almost stood up and yelled at Brandon when he claimed he was innocent.
The Brandon’s didn’t care if they got caught. They had a plan if they did. They would just lie and say it wasn’t so if they got caught.
