A new book by investigative journalist and “Clinton Cash” author Peter Schweizer promises to expose previously unknown corruption surrounding former Vice President and Democratic frontrunner Joe Biden.

Profiles in Corruption: Abuse of Power by America’s Progressive Elite” breaks down corruption and self-serving throughout the ranks of major Democratic Party candidates and politicians, but the new details surrounding the Biden family promise to be the most savory.

Schweizer breaks down problematic business dealings by James Biden, Joe’s younger brother. James has been known to accompany the Democratic elder statesman on international voyages. The younger Biden appears to have been handsomely set up with a well-paying job at HillStone, a construction consulting company, just weeks after the firm signed in as a visitor on White House logs. James Biden had no construction experience.

Months later, the company hit it big with a whopping $35 billion contract awarded by a South Korean construction group. Schweizer describes David Richter, the son of HillStone’s founder, talking up his company’s connections to Biden, using them to secure the South Korean contract and numerous other American federal contracting projects.

James Biden’s corrupt dealings with HillStone bear an almost uncanny resemblance to Hunter Biden’s Burisma scandal, in which Joe Biden’s son was paid tens of millions of dollars by a Ukrainian oil company despite having no history on the field.

Joe Biden himself famously used his political office to force Ukraine to fire a prosecutor investigating Burisma for corrupt dealings surrounding his son.

Schweizer goes on to expose ethical issues surrounding Biden family members and associates such as Howard Krein, Frank Biden, and Valerie Biden Owens.

Profiles in Corruption‘ hit bookstores earlier this month and is available nationwide.
