(RepublicanInformer.com)- Over a week ago, the New York Times reported that, in 2016, Hunter Biden’s firm helped the Chinese secure a deal to transfer ownership of a cobalt and copper mine from an American company to a Chinese company for $2.64 billion. And still, not one of the major liberal media news outlets has picked up the story.
According to Fox News, the Times report received zero coverage on CNN, MSNBC, ABC, CBS, and NBC.
This is par for the course, however. When the New York Post first broke the news of Hunter Biden’s abandoned laptop, liberal outlets avoided it like the plague. When they finally reported on the Post’s story, it was to claim the story was “debunked” as “Russian disinformation.”
Even so, the New York Times isn’t exactly a right-wing site. And still, these outlets won’t touch the story with a ten-foot pole. Of course, if the Times reported that Eric Trump secured a deal for China, they’d never shut up about it.
According to the New York Times report, in 2013, Hunter, along with two other Americans and some Chinese business partners, established Bohai Harvest RST (or BHR) Equity Investment Fund Management Company.
Three years later, BHR helped to complete a deal that transferred a Congo cobalt and copper mine from the American company Freeport-McMoRan to China Molybdenum for $2.65 billion. BHR, acting as a minority stakeholder, bought about $1.14 billion in shares from Lundin Mining of Canada which also owned a portion of the Congo mine. China Molybdenum then purchased those shares from BHR two years later.
In the end, China Molybdenum owned 80 percent of the mine while Congo’s state mining enterprise kept the remaining portion.
New York Post reporter Miranda Devine’s book “Laptop from Hell: Hunter Biden, Big Tech, and the Dirty Secrets the President Tried to Hide” hits bookstores this week. Meanwhile, the New York Post has been running excerpts from the book recounting in detail the many deals Hunter Biden and his family have made with foreign entities both in China and elsewhere.
No doubt Devine’s book will be ignored by all the same liberal media outlets that are ignoring the New York Times’ November 20 report.
