NBC News stumbled into some truth this week with a story published Thursday morning detailing a closer look at Hunter Biden’s foreign business dealings, and it’s more bad news for Joe Biden as the president’s past claims about his son’s income sources get debunked.
According to NBC News, which didn’t hold back in its description of Hunter’s business partners, “From 2013 through 2018 Hunter Biden and his company brought in about $11 million via his roles as an attorney and a board member with a Ukrainian firm accused of bribery and his work with a Chinese businessman now accused of fraud.” That timeframe, notably, includes years in which Joe Biden was vice president.
NBC News: Analysis of Hunter Biden's hard drive shows he, his firm took in about $11 million from 2013 to 2018 — including from foreign backed sources — and he spent it fast.

Specifically, as NBC News’ review confirmed, “Biden made $5.8 million, more than half his total earnings from 2013 to 2018, from two deals with Chinese business interests.”
More than $5 million, for the record, is a far cry from President Biden’s 2020 debate claim that Hunter “has not made money” from China. That kind of blanket denial rarely ends well, especially when the person issuing it is Joe Biden — a man who has tried to shake hands with thin air.
