Hunter Biden’s business dealings have come under increased scrutiny in recent years, with Republicans and some media outlets alleging that his father, President Joe Biden, may have been involved in or aware of some of his son’s questionable business practices.
As previously reported, Hunter was invited to accompany his father on a trip to Ireland this week, which has raised concerns about potential conflicts of interest given the ongoing investigations into his business dealings.
Emails reviewed by Fox News Digital show that Hunter’s partners at Rosemont Seneca Partners discussed making contacts to expand their energy investments in various state-owned investment funds, including in China, Ireland, Oman, and Qatar. Some of these discussions took place while his father was vice president.
It’s unclear whether Hunter and his now-defunct firm were successful in any of their potential business ventures in Ireland. Nevertheless, the email has added to the controversy surrounding the Biden family’s business dealings, particularly in China.
Hunter’s Chinese business dealings have been a particularly sore spot for the Biden family.
The New York Post published a series of reports during the 2020 presidential campaign that purported to show emails from Hunter’s laptop indicating that he had introduced his father to a top executive at a Ukrainian energy company.
The allegations were denied by the Biden campaign, and some media outlets disputed the authenticity of the emails, but the reports led to renewed scrutiny of Hunter’s business dealings.
