Most U.S. voters believe Democratic nominee Joe Biden was involved in Hunter Biden’s shady business dealings abroad following The New York Post’s exclusive reporting, according to a Rasmussen Reports poll published Monday.
The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey of 1,000 likely U.S. voters found that 54% believe it’s “likely that Biden was consulted about and perhaps profited from Hunter’s overseas business deals including at least one involving a company in mainland China,” The New York Post reports.
Forty-four percent consider it very likely that Biden was involved in his son’s business dealings while 38 percent said it was unlikely Biden was involved in his son’s affairs overseas. Twenty-one percent said it was “not likely at all.”
The New York Post earlier this month revealed an email chain purportedly showing Hunter Biden’s ties to China’s largest private energy company, which included a promise to pay his then-vice president father $10 million a year “for introductions alone.”
A smoking-gun email revealed Hunter Biden introduced his father to a top executive at a Ukrainian energy firm less than a year before the elder Biden lobbied officials in Ukraine into firing a prosecutor who was investigating the company, according to The Post.
The revelations, which Joe Biden has denied, prompted a former business associate of Hunter Biden to come forward and accuse Joe Biden of lying about the presidential nominee”s involvement in a scheme to make millions in China.
The Post story has been censored by tech giants Facebook and Twitter since it was published. Twitter labeled the revelations with a warning and locked The Post’s official account for the past 12 days, demanding the newspaper delete six tweets about the story before it can regain access to its account, according to The Post.
The censorship sparked a Senate Judiciary probe, with GOP lawmakers issuing subpoenas to Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey and Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg.
The correspondence published by The Post was contained in a trove of data that the owner of a computer repair shop in Delaware said was recovered from a MacBook Pro laptop that was dropped off in April 2019 and never retrieved.
