DOJ Drops Foreign Lobbying Probe of Burisma-Linked Blue Star

Republicans plan to reevaluate the investigations into the younger Biden's work if they retake control of Congress in the midterm elections...

(Molly Bruns, Headline USA) The Biden administration closed a foreign investigation into a consulting firm that was linked to Hunter Biden without any charges being filed, according to the Washington Free Beacon.

The public relations firm, Blue Star Strategies, has been under investigation for its work with Burisma Holdings, a Ukrainian gas company where the younger Biden sat on the board of directors.

His work on the board raised concerns over a conflict of interest, as Joe Biden was the vice president under Barack Obama at the time.

The end of this investigation is a positive for Hunter Biden, though his taxes, foreign business dealings and possible foreign agent activity are also currently under investigation.

The White House has been dodging questions about the delinquent first son since the president took office, refusing to confirm or deny Joe Biden’s knowledge of his son’s dealings.

Republicans plan to reevaluate the investigations into the younger Biden’s work if they retake control of Congress in the midterm elections.

According to former Obama DOJ official Peter Kadzik, Blue Star has done nothing wrong.

Blue Start Strategies, which was founded by former Clinton administration officials, partially resolved the case by retroactively registering as a foreign agent of Burisma.

Hunter Biden had not yet registered as a foreign agent of Ukraine, but it is reported that he discussed Burisma with state department offical Amos Hochstein.

Biden and a business partner were paid more than $80,000 per month starting in April of 2014 to serve on Burisma’s board.

Biden claims that his job was to find investment deals for the company; it appears as if he was also involved in a public relations effort to help the business’s reputation improve.

Blue Star worked with Biden on the campaign, along with his old law firm Boies Schiller Flexner.

Heather King, a Boies Schiller Flexner partner, sent an email to Biden in May of 2014 stating that the firm would arrange meetings for Burisma with the State Department, but wanted to avoid registration with the Foreign Agents Registration Act or the Lobbying Disclosure Act.

King said the firm would “execute the political and legal work right up to the line where we would need to register as lobbyists.”
