US President Joe Biden was aware of his son Hunter’s dubious Chinese business dealings in 2018 despite the elder Biden’s repeated denials of any such knowledge, a recently unearthed voicemail from Hunter’s “laptop from hell” published by the Daily Mail on Monday reveals.

The December 2018 voicemail from the elder Biden to his son indicates that Joe had read a New York Times article mentioning Hunter’s relationship with a representative of Chinese oil conglomerate CEFC. Joe Biden, who at the time was in between his stints as vice president and president, describes the Times article as “pretty good,” suggesting Hunter is “clear.” (RT)
