Hunter Biden and Devon Archer joined the board of Burisma.

But a key partner in their investment firm raised serious concerns.

Chris Heinz, Kerry’s stepson, told Archer that joining Burisma was a bad idea, according to a spokesman for Heinz.

Heinz was concerned about reports of corruption in Ukraine, geopolitical risks and general questions about appearance.

“Mr. Heinz strongly warned Mr. Archer that working with Burisma was unacceptable. Mr. Archer stated that he and Hunter Biden intended to pursue the opportunity as individuals, not as part of the firm,” Heinz spokesman Chris Bastardi told The Post.

The decision fractured the firm.

“The lack of judgment in this matter was a major catalyst for Mr. Heinz ending his business relationships with Mr. Archer and Mr. Biden,” Bastardi said, adding that Heinz and his investment firm were never involved with Burisma.

Archer could not be reached for comment. His lawyer did not respond to requests for comment.

Mesires, Hunter Biden’s attorney, did not respond to a question about whether Hunter Biden knew of Heinz’s warning.

Bulger of course was related to Whitey Bulger, the crime lord protected by the FB I (and partly one assumes by Mueller); who was then murdered in prison.

No wonder, then, that Feinstein (D) Beijing, is wanting things and being vocal about it.

And before someone asks why are we defending Heinz.......

U.S. District Judge Ronnie Abrams in Manhattan who found Biden’s partner Devon Archer “Not Guilty” was the same judge who resided over several Trump cases.

US company set to power waste plants in China
By Zhang Qi (China Daily)
Updated: 2007-11-14 07:08

US-based strategic investment and advisory company Thornton Asia Infra would invest between $450 million and $900 million to build several waste power plants in China over the next six months, according to Thornton Asia CEO Michael C Lin.

(snip)

Thornton was jointly funded by investment company Thornton Group and biomass power generation company Caletta Renewable Energy Co. Both are US-based.

Established 20 years ago, Thornton Group launched its Asia operations in 2000. Its entry into China was to develop infrastructure, and last year, it built roads in Northwest China’s Qinghai Province.

Founded 50 years ago, Caletta processes more than 200 types of biomass and built more than 90 installations worldwide, according to Thorton Chairman James J Bulger.

xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

another way to look at Heinz departure could be that:

Heinz comes from real OLD generational family money

where as “humper” biden, “rural healthcare fraud specialist,” con artist & ex VEEP’S bro, james biden & “quid pro joe” are basically grifters on the take selling the old man’s political influence or giving away US gummit assets through extortion, kickbacks or bribes (aka “NEW” money)

iow; young heinz doesn’t need the heart burn that comes with dealing with criminal trash like the biden gang.

Does it seem to you the problem we have is the incompetent offspring of 'elites' are screwing up because they're not even talented in graft? No less anything else? In the private sector these types would be let go... in DC they get ever larger jobs..
