During his campaign event in Council Bluffs, Iowa, Republican presidential candidate Vivek Ramaswamy addressed the topic of US involvement in the Ukrainian war, suggesting a possible connection to Hunter Biden, the son of President Joe Biden. Ramaswamy criticized US foreign policy in Ukraine and questioned the motives behind US military intervention.
Ramaswamy highlighted that the primary objective of the US military is to protect American interests and the homeland, rather than engaging in a conflict that could be seen as a favor for a family member. He referenced an alleged bribe involving former Vice President Joe Biden and his son, Hunter, citing claims made by House Oversight Committee Chair James Comer. According to Comer’s information from a whistleblower, a foreign national purportedly made a $5 million payment to the Bidens in exchange for policy decisions.
Expressing concerns about potential corruption and its impact on US policy towards Ukraine, Ramaswamy raised important questions. However, it’s crucial to acknowledge that the White House has denied any involvement by President Biden in his son’s business dealings.
Devon Archer, a former business associate of Hunter Biden, gave testimony to the House oversight committee, revealing that Hunter Biden capitalized on the Biden name during his tenure in the Ukrainian energy company, Burisma. Archer also stated that he had no knowledge of any instances where the president altered US foreign policy to benefit his son.
Despite the ongoing controversy, both the Biden administration and Congress have provided substantial financial assistance to Ukraine following Russia’s invasion in 2022. However, public opinion remains divided on the appropriateness of further funding.
