Report: Testimony Indicates Jim Biden Was in Business with Qatari Officials

via Forbes

Politico reported that President Joe Biden’s brother Jim Biden leveraged his ties to the president in business dealings with Qatari officials and companies with ties to the Qatari government.

According to testimony, Jim Biden partnered with a company owned partially by Qatari government members to raise funds for his healthcare ventures after Joe Biden left the vice presidency.

“I am following up from the meeting we had with the Minister,” Platinum Group executive Julie Lander wrote to Jim Biden, adding, “Your approach with him was flawless. He requested more information on Americore.”

Jim Biden later worked with a troubled hospital chain and others seeking over $30 million from Qatar’s sovereign wealth fund.

Emails showed Jim Biden met with Qatari officials and discussed potential investment deals.

“Things have happened in the interim that are completely understandable, but the fact remains that the $5 million at this point in time is critical in order to get by for the big picture,” Jim Biden wrote.

“We weren’t able to show the financial bona fides of any one particular project,” Biden said. “We got pretty far down the road on several hotel complexes, but they never came to fruition.”

While the fundraising efforts faced challenges, testimony indicated Jim Biden had closer ties to Qatar than previously known.

Critics suggested Joe Biden’s approach to Qatar, which supports Hamas, could be linked to his brother’s Qatari business dealings.

The report detailed ongoing legal issues around the financial arrangements.
