So much for the most transparent administration.
According to a Fox News report, since taking office, Joe Biden and the Biden White House have failed to log First Son Hunter Biden’s visits —despite it being a common practice during the Obama Administration.
From Fox News:
Fox News Digital reviewed several articles to piece together Hunter Biden’s whereabouts during his dad’s administration and found that he has visited the White House over a dozen times through February 2023, the month accounted for in the most recent batch of visitor logs released last month.
A majority of the White House visits that Fox News Digital found were from 2022, which include the annual egg roll, Medal of Freedom ceremony, France State Dinner on the South Lawn, Christmas tree lighting, his daughter’s wedding, among others. However, they are all absent from the visitor logs, including what appear to be extended stays at the White House.
While many of these events are ceremonial and a tradition at the White House, Fox News Digital previously reported how Hunter Biden sought to use such events for his personal financial gain during the Obama administration.
Hunter and his longtime business partner, Eric Schwerin, would coordinate with his father’s White House staff to invite business associates and potential business partners they were courting to official events.
When asked why the White House logs omit Hunter Biden’s visits, a spokesperson pointed Fox News Digital to a policy released at the start of the administration.
“The White House will not release access records related to purely personal guests of the First and Second Families (i.e., visits that do not involve any official or political business),” the policy states, which appears to be less transparent than the Obama administration.
Many on social media are asking the same question about Hunter’s lack of logging: why would the Biden Administration do such a thing?
