Why would a Ukrainian gas company hire someone with no experience in the gas industry and a drug problem he has had trouble dealing with, to become a member of their board, with a very nice salary?
Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.), brought up the incident of the former Vice President Joe Biden’s son Hunter Biden’s past drug abuse on Thursday, Dec. 12, at the House Judiciary Committee discussion on two articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump.
Gaetz discussed the Hertz Rental Car incident, where Hunter had crashed the car, and one of the Hertz officials discovered “a crack pipe in the car and, on one of the consoles, a line of white-powder residue.”
“That is what we would call evidence,” he posed. “I don’t want to make light of anybody’s substance abuse issues. I know the president is working real hard to solve those throughout the country, but it’s a little hard to believe that Burisma hired Hunter Biden to resolve their international disputes when he could not resolve his own dispute with Hertz Rental Car over leaving cocaine and a crack pipe in the car.”
Recalling another incident when Hunter had visited L.A. Gaetz read from Hunter’s profile, “He said he asked a homeless man in Pershing Square where he could buy crack,” Gaetz continued. “Hunter said the man took him to a nearby homeless encampment where near a passageway between tents, someone put a gun to his head before realizing he was the buyer. He returned to buy more crack a few times that week.”
“Again, not casting any judgment on challenges people go through in their personal life, but it is just hard to believe this was the guy wandering through homeless encampments buying crack who was worth $86,000 a month to Burisma Holdings.”
At the same time Hunter held a position on the board of the Ukrainian gas holdings Burisma, he was suspected of smoking crack in the strip club Archibald’s Gentlemen’s Club in Washington D.C. reports Page Six.
James Ritter, a former managing partner said the incident took place late in 2018, “There was a smell of burning styrofoam in the VIP room. We told him nothing illegal can go on here. We didn’t see anything illegal. After he was spoken to, the smell stopped,” Ritter explained to Page Six. “VIP employees suspected it was crack,” he said.
Biden, 49, has admitted to several stints in rehab for addiction and alcoholism—and once in 2016, after a crack binge, reports Daily Caller.
