By Lucky Uwakina (AGENDAWATCHDOG) – President-elect Joe Biden’s brother James is caught up in an FBI investigation, it emerged Thursday – the day after Hunter Biden confirmed he was the target of a federal tax probe.
Agents have asked about James Biden, one of Joe’s two younger brothers, during an investigation into a hospital business in Pennsylvania in which he was involved.
The business, Americore, ran rural hospitals and was raided by agents in January after entering bankruptcy. Politico reported that in the course of their investigation, the FBI has asked about James Biden’s involvement in the business.
He has been described as its ‘principal,’ but has disputed that description and his role is the subject of litigation in at least two states. In one court case he was accused of dropping his brother’s name to drum up business.
The revelation came after Hunter admitted he was the target of a separate tax investigation by federal prosecutors in Delaware, focused on his extensive – and lucrative – Chinese business dealings.
