Jen Psaki finds any question of ethics violations by President Joe Biden’s son Hunter Biden to be completely irrelevant, a non-issue, as Hunter isn’t a part of the Biden administration. It should be pointed out that Hunter has direct continuing ties to the Chinese Communist Party through his continued ownership stake in a Chinese private equity firm.
Of course it’s totally irrelevant, and the DNC media will assure that’s what the vast majority of political casuals will believe is the case, omitting, of course, the reason for the concern in the first place, a President’s son having direct ties to a significant opponent of the United States of America, China. But he’s not in the administration, so duh…..

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki got a bit snippy Monday after Newsmax correspondent Emerald Robinson asked if Hunter Biden has sold his remaining stake in a Chinese private equity firm with ties to the Chinese Communist Party.
“I’d point you to his representatives on that,” Psaki said. Hunter “doesn’t work in the administration.” When Robinson tried to follow up, the flack got short, saying: “You should talk to his representatives. That remains his policy. He’s been working to wind that down.”
Huh? No, Hunter’s not part of Joe’s administration, but he is the prez’s son, and candidate Biden swore up and down the whole family would divest from all overseas business interests. In October 2019, for example, he vowed, “No one in my family . . . will, in fact, have any business relationship with anyone that relates to a foreign corporation or a foreign country.”
