We all know Hunter Biden has leveraged his famous last name repeatedly for personal and financial gain.
However, the unlikely story of Biden nearly teaching a drug policy course at one of the nation’s top law schools is nothing short of astonishingly hypocritical.
An email chain obtained by the Daily Caller News Foundation revealed negotiations between Biden and the administration broke down only after Biden failed to meet the requisite requirements asked by the school when considering a new course. (Daily Caller)
Joe Biden, who now leads the Democratic primary after a strong Super Tuesday performance, told reporters in October 2019 that Hunter was “gonna be teaching at law school next year.”
Hunter served on the board of Ukrainian energy firm Burisma Holdings through April 2019, leaving the position weeks before his father announced his presidential bid. He was also on the board of a Chinese private equity firm through October 2019.
Hunter emailed the law school’s dean, Jennifer Mnookin, in July 2019 to share his vision for the course he wanted to teach.
Hunter, whose struggles with drug abuse have been widely publicized, said he “would like to focus on domestic and international drug policy” in the proposed course. He also attached a syllabus of a course he taught for Georgetown University’s School of Foreign Service.
