Joe Biden’s Son-In-Regulation Set To Money In On Authorities Response To COVID-19
Joe Biden’s family members are already benefiting from his presidency.
Biden’s son Hunter has signed a book deal for which he has already received $ 2 million, and his son-in-law is the chief officer of a company designed to clean up the government’s response to COVID-19.
It must be nice to have connections like that.

With Biden’s son-in-law investing in COVID-19 response, family and ethical issues could re-emerge
When boutique tech company Yosi Health was developing software to streamline the country’s coronavirus vaccine efforts, CEO Hari Prasad turned to one of its earliest investors – a company with a special government affiliation.
The investor was StartUp Health, and that particular connection was made through its chief medical officer, Howard Kerin, who is married to President Joe Biden’s daughter.
This detail was not lost on Yosis Prasad, who reached out to StartUp Health in December to present his platform to the government health authorities.
“Our goal at StartUp Health is to leverage their relationships and work with state and state agencies,” he said in an interview with ABC News.
During the 2020 presidential campaign, the Biden family’s attention was mostly focused on his son Hunter Biden. However, experts say it is the president’s son-in-law who could pose new ethical challenges for the new administration.
The New York Post has more:
“Howard Kerin is playing with fire,” Meredith McGehee, executive director of Issue One, an impartial ethics monitoring group, told ABC News. “If he gets too close to that flame – if he tries to either capitalize on his relationship with the president or influence politics – the flame will get him. And it’s not worth it to him or Biden. “
In an interview earlier this month, the president vowed that family members would not be involved in foreign or government affairs.
“We’re going to run it like the Obama-Biden administration. Nobody in our family or in our extended family will be involved in any government company or foreign policy. And nobody has an office in this place, ”said Biden in an interview.
Do you remember when Democrats falsely accused Trump’s family members of getting rich through his presidency?
They clearly don’t.
