Washington Free Beacon founding editor Matthew Continetti on Thursday said Joe Biden has never answered for his son's business dealings in China.
"Joe Biden has never had an answer to what Hunter Biden was doing in China," he said, stressing the younger Biden's relationship with a group of Chinese entrepreneurs connected to the Chinese Communist Party.
The president-elect's son revealed Wednesday that he is under investigation for tax fraud by a federal prosecutor. In a joint statement with the Biden-Harris transition team, he said he took the matter "very seriously" but remained confident that the audit would reveal he "handled [his] affairs legally and appropriately."
Continetti said Hunter Biden's business dealings likely affected undecided voters in President Donald Trump's favor, despite a media blackout on former business associate Tony Bobulinski coming forward to implicate Joe Biden.
"You look at the exit polls—it's actually the late deciders who tended to break for Trump," he said. "One has to imagine that discussions of Hunter Biden played some role in that."
