In a revelation that adds more to the mountain of evidence that exists proving the Obama regime was the nation’s most corrupt ever, a report Thursday noted that the previous administration was alerted to concerns about Hunter Biden’s business dealings in Ukraine but they were summarily ignored.

As reported — surprisingly enough — by the Washington Post:

A career State Department official overseeing Ukraine policy told congressional investigators this week that he had raised concerns in early 2015 about then-Vice President Joe Biden’s son serving on the board of a Ukrainian energy company but was turned away by a Biden staffer, according to three people familiar with the testimony.

The official, Deputy Assistant Secretary of State George Kent, testified earlier this week before a closed congressional hearing that he was worried Hunter Biden’s position as a board member at Burisma Holdings, an energy firm that was under investigation for corruption, “would complicate efforts by U.S. diplomats to convey to Ukrainian officials the importance of avoiding conflicts of interest,” the Post said.

The report was based on information provided to the Post on the condition of anonymity, so there’s that. But the fact that the sources named a specific State Department official — Kent — lends some credence to their claims and the Post’s story.

Kent told investigators that he was concerned the Ukrainian government and Burisma would use Hunter Biden to influence Obama administration policy via his dad, Vice President Joe Biden, the sources said. However, after Kent raised his concerns with Joe Biden’s office, he was told the VP didn’t have the “bandwidth” to deal with it because he was already dealing with another son, Beau, who had been diagnosed with cancer (Beau died of brain cancer in May 2015).

Not to be callous of the Biden family’s loss, but by that date, Joe Biden and Hunter Biden were already well into business and geopolitical dealings with Ukraine — so the excuse that the vice president didn’t have the attention span to deal with concerns about the appearance of impropriety, while still dealing with the other trappings of his office, sounds like an excuse.
