State Dept. official flagged Hunter Biden’s ‘conflict of interest’ in Ukraine

George Kent, a career official at the State Department, told House investigators conducting the impeachment inquiry against President Trump that he raised concerns about Hunter Biden’s lucrative service on the board of a Ukrainian natural gas company — and confirmed that he had no “direct knowledge” that U.S. aid to Ukraine was ever connected to the opening of a new investigation.

According to a transcript of his Oct. 15 closed-door deposition released Thursday, Kent said that in January or February 2015, he “became aware that Hunter Biden was on the board” of Ukrainian company Burisma Holdings while his father Joe Biden was overseeing Ukraine policy as vice president.
