Biden’s Son-In-Law Shaping Campaign Pandemic Response While Invested In Coronavirus Startups


Democratic Presidential candidate Joe Biden’s son-in-law has advised his presidential campaign on its coronavirus response while simultaneously working at a venture capital firm invested in healthcare startups geared towards combatting the virus.

The recently unearthed connection is yet another example of the Biden family intermixing personal business interests with the former veep’s political career and follows an explosive Senate report highlighting Hunter Biden’s corrupt business dealings spanning China, Russia, Ukraine, and more.

The individual in question, Howard Krein, is married to Ashley Biden, the candidate’s youngest daughter.

According to Politico:

“At the same time that Joe Biden’s son-in-law, Howard Krein, has been advising Biden’s campaign on its coronavirus response, Krein’s venture capital business has been running a special initiative to invest in health care startups that offer solutions to the pandemic. In March, as Covid-19 began spreading in the United States, the investment firm, StartUp Health, unveiled a new coronavirus initiative soliciting pitches from entrepreneurs with products that addressed the outbreak. The next month, reports in Bloomberg and the New York Times listed Krein among those participating in daily calls to brief Biden on health policy during the pandemic, while StartUp Health announced its intention to invest $1 million across 10 startups with coronavirus applications within 30 days. “StartUp Health is putting the full support of its platform and network behind building a post-Covid world that uses technology and entrepreneurial ingenuity to improve health outcomes,” the firm said at the time.”
