More On: Hunter Biden
Through the U.S. Ambassador, Hunter Biden and his associates tried to get money from the Irish in 2011
Hunter Biden and his father, President Biden, watched the Fourth of July fireworks show from the White House balcony on Monday night, even though Hunter is still under investigation by the federal government for his business dealings overseas.
Hunter Biden and his 2-year-old son Beau, who was named after Hunter's older brother who died of brain cancer in 2015, watched the show after getting back to the White House from Camp David, the presidential retreat in Maryland, where they spent most of the holiday weekend.
Images show the president holding his grandson and kissing him while standing on the Truman Balcony.
Melissa Cohen, a South African filmmaker and Hunter's wife, also went back to Washington with the family from Camp David.
Earlier, the Biden family went to a barbecue for military families on the South Lawn. However, the event was overshadowed by a mass shooting at a holiday parade in the Chicago suburb of Highland Park that killed six people and hurt more than two dozen others.
In a few words, the president asked his guests to "take a moment of silence for all those families." Earlier, he and first lady Jill Biden put out a statement condemning the "senseless gun violence that has again brought sadness to an American community on this Independence Day."
Hunder Biden, who is 52 years old, was last seen at the White House in April, when he and Beau went to the Easter Egg roll. The US Attorney's Office in Delaware is looking into him for possible tax fraud and laundering of money from his international business dealings.
The first son is said to have sent the IRS a $2 million check to cover taxes that were not paid on time.
The Post published a series of stories about Hunter Biden's business connections in Ukraine and China in October 2020. The stories were based on information found on a laptop he left at a Delaware computer repair shop.
Along with information about Hunter's business dealings, the laptop had photos and graphic videos about his out-of-control drug use and his sexual shenanigans with hookers.
Republicans in Congress have said that if they win control of the House and Senate in the fall elections, they will hold hearings to look into Hunter Biden's business deals and see if his father was involved or made money from any of them.
The White House said that the president stands by his 2019 claim that he had "never spoken" with his son about "his overseas business dealings." This is despite growing evidence to the contrary, such as a 2018 voicemail in which Joe Biden talked about an article in the New York Times about his son's Chinese business partner.
Emails from Hunter Biden's laptop also show that Joe Biden went to a dinner in DC in 2015 with his son's friends from Ukraine, Russia, and Kazakhstan when he was still vice president.
