WASHINGTON (AP) — The Justice Department is investigating the finances of President-elect Joe Biden’s son, including scrutinizing some of his Chinese business dealings and other transactions.
That's according to a person familiar with the matter who spoke to The Associated Press on Wednesday.
The revelations put a renewed spotlight on questions about Hunter Biden’s financial history, which dogged his father’s successful White House campaign and were a frequent target of President Donald Trump and his allies.
They also come at a politically delicate time for the president-elect, who's weighing his choice to lead an agency that's actively investigating his son.
There's no indication the investigation has anything to do with the elder Biden.
