A new photo emerged on Tuesday of Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden meeting with one of his son’s foreign business associates.
The photo shows Hunter and Joe Biden standing alongside Kenes Rakishev, a Kazakh oligarch who reportedly worked with Hunter.
Rakishev’s personal website states,“Kenes (Kenges) Rakishev is a prominent investor and entrepreneur regarded as one of the most influential businessmen in Kazakhstan.” Forbes has him ranked as one of the top 50 most influential people in Kazakhstan.
It was reported late last week by the Daily Mail that Hunter Bidens crooked foreign business dealings not only took place in China, Ukraine, and Russia, but also in Kazakhstan, a country known for being highly corrupt.
The Daily Mail report reads:
The Mail can reveal that between 2012 and 2014, Hunter worked as a sort of go-between for Kenes Rakishev, a self-styled ‘international businessman, investor and entrepreneur’ with close family connections to the kleptocratic regime of his homeland’s despotic former president Nursultan Nazarbayev.
Emails passed to this newspaper via anti-corruption campaigners from the Central Asian country reveal that Biden Jr held extensive meetings with Rakishev, who was looking to invest a portion of his personal fortune in New York and Washington DC. He also travelled to the Kazakh capital of Astana to hold business discussions.
Hunter Biden then attempted to persuade Rakishev to buy into a Nevadan mining company, brokering a series of meetings with the firm, before convincing him to invest a cool million dollars with Alexandra Forbes Kerry, the film-maker daughter of Democrat Senator and former Presidential candidate John Kerry.
Rakishev, who wrote messages in broken English, appears to have become intimate with the Vice President’s son, calling Hunter ‘my brother!’ and ‘my brother from another mother!’.
They shared gossip about their family holidays and dined together at luxury restaurants in New York and Washington DC (‘I’m on vacation with family [at] Lake Michigan . . . trying to spend some much needed time with my wife and daughters. It’s my 20th anniversary of marriage tomorrow,’ Hunter told Rakishev in July 2013).
A Senate report into Hunter Biden’s foreign business dealings stated that one of Hunter Biden’s shady business partners, Devon Archer, “received $142,300 from Kenges Rakishev of Kazakhstan, purportedly for a car, the same day Vice President Joe Biden appeared with Ukrainian Prime Minister Arsemy Yasenyuk and addressed Ukrainian legislators in Kyiv regarding Russia’s actions in Crimea.”
Joe Biden has attempted to maintain that he has never spoken to his son about his business dealings – but recent discoveries have made it rather difficult for the Democratic candidate to sustain this lie.
Last week the New York Post published a troubling report exposing that Joe Biden met with a top executive from Burisma, the Ukrainian gas company where his son served on the board, just prior to pressuring the Ukrainian government into firing a prosecutor looking into the company.
It’s becoming more and more clear that Joe Biden is complicit in all of his son’s shady business dealings and a Biden presidency would serve as a liability for the entire country.
