A new report from Politico now claims the New York Times is actively investigating Hunter Biden’s business relationships, this time with counterparts in Romania.
“The NYT is investigating Hunter Biden’s business relationships, this time in Romania. The Times filed a lawsuit against the State Dept. on Monday, requesting FOIA-ed emails from embassy officials regarding Hunter, Tony Bobulinski, Giuliani, and others,” writes Politico’s Max Tani.
One of the Times’ goals in the suit appears to be finding out whether embassy officials did any favors on behalf of private businesses (including, presumably, that of the president’s son) that would raise questions about possible conflicts of interest and corruption.
Specifically, the request seeks records about “(1) the possible improper use of federal government resources to assist and advance private business interests with connections to United States government officials and (2) the possible evasion of the Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA) by those private business interests, and (3) the non-enforcement of FARA by the federal government in relation to those private business interests.”
