Vice President Biden’s Son Was Discharged From Navy Reserves For Cocaine, Now Is Ukraine Energy Executive

Hunter Biden

Hunter Biden, the son of Vice President Joe Biden, was discharged from the US Navy Reserves for testing positive for cocaine according to a report in the Wall Street Journal. Hunter received two waivers to enter the Naval Reserves – one for being older than a typical applicant at 43 and one for a previous drug related “incident.”

After being granted the waivers Biden had been commissioned as an officer with the rank of ensign and served in public affairs before testing positive for cocaine and being discharged.

Hunter had recently been in the news for a controversial decision to join the board of Burisma Holdings Limited, a Ukrainian natural gas company. The decision drew scrutiny because Hunter was tasked with managing Bursima’s legal unit while his father was involved in trying to shape Ukraine’s future.

After hiring Hunter Biden, Burisma hired a lobbyist in DC making it rather clear that they were comfortable spending money to gain political influence with the United States government.

Mr. Biden was commissioned as an ensign on May 7, 2013, and assigned to Navy Public Affairs Support Element East in Norfolk, Va., a reserve unit, according to the Navy. In June 2013, after reporting to his unit in Norfolk, he was given a drug test, which turned up positive for cocaine, according to people familiar with the situation. Mr. Biden was discharged in February, the Navy said.

Mr. Biden said in a statement that it was “the honor of my life to serve in the U.S. Navy, and I deeply regret and am embarrassed that my actions led to my administrative discharge. I respect the Navy’s decision. With the love and support of my family, I’m moving forward.”

Why would Hunter Biden use cocaine knowing he would be drug tested? Did he, perhaps, think no one would dare discharge the Vice President’s son? If strings were pulled in the first instance to get those waivers maybe Hunter thought they would be again to suppress a drug test. Was there an attempt to do so?

Hunter Biden’s service in the Navy Reserves was likely meant to serve as a prelude to a political career. Biden’s other son, Beau Biden, is a major in the Delaware National Guard and is currently serving as the Attorney General for the State of Delaware. During the 2008 and 2012 presidential campaigns Vice President Biden made continual and positive references to Beau’s military service which included a tour in Iraq that was initiated in October 2008 the day after the Vice Presidential debate.
