Schweitzer: Joe Biden Was Obama's Pointman On China & Ukraine; The Countries Where Hunter Biden Did Most Business

|

Peter Schweitzer, the author of Secret Empires: How the American Political Class Hides Corruption and Enriches Family and Friends, joined FNC's Tucker Carlson to discuss "the Biden family cashing in through by corruption by proxy" in Ukraine and China.

"Joe Biden is Vice President, so his wife, Jill Biden can't take payments from foreign entities. That would have to be disclosed," Schweitzer explained. "That would be easy to catch. But you set up your adult kids... Joe Biden was point-person for the Obama administration towards two countries -- China and Ukraine. And low and behold, the two countries that hunter Biden ends up doing the most businesses overseas are China and Ukraine."





CARLSON: You should be asking him about what Hunter Biden was doing in Ukraine. Oh, wait. That's why they want to impeach him because he asked about it.

But the question is, as a factual matter? Let's just -- because this is a news channel, we will answer the question, the most basic one. Is Biden's claim true?

Well, a photograph obtained exclusively by this show -- not to brag -- but we did suggest that claim might not be true. The picture shows, it's on the screen. Biden on a 2014 golfing trip with his son as well as his son, Hunter's business partner, Devon Archer.

At the time, this picture was taken both of them on the Board of the Ukrainian energy company, Burisma. Peter Schweizer, the author of "Secret Empires: How the American Political Class Hides Corruption and Enriches Family and Friends." Boy, that couldn't be a more germane title. And he joins us tonight.

Peter, thanks so much for coming on. We also have sent you a couple of emails that the show obtained exclusively that appear to shed some light on Hunter Biden was doing for the Ukrainians. What does it add up to, do you think?

PETER SCHWEIZER, AMERICAN INVESTIGATIVE JOURNALIST: Well, I think it adds up to is the Biden family cashing in through by corruption by proxy?

Hunter -- sorry, Joe Biden is Vice President, so his wife, Jill Biden can't take payments from foreign entities. That would have to be disclosed.

That would be easy to catch. But you set up your adult kids, and in the case of the Biden's, Joe Biden was point person for the Obama administration towards two countries -- China and Ukraine -- and low and behold, the two countries that hunter Biden ends up doing the most businesses overseas are China and Ukraine.

And the amounts of money are astronomical and the deals that he got have absolutely nothing to do with his background. He had no expertise to sell.

He had no skill set to sell to either the Chinese or Ukrainians. He was being paid for something, Tucker. It certainly wasn't his skill set. I think we know what he was being paid for.
