Hunter Biden's 'close friend' charged with treason in Kazakhstan
Former Kazakhstan intelligence chief Karim Massimov, whom Hunter Biden once described as his "close friend" and who once posed for a photo with Biden and his father, President Joe Biden, was arrested by Kazakh authorities last week on alleged suspicion of high treason.
Massimov's arrest came Thursday, one day after he was fired from his post as chairman of the Kazakhstan National Security Committee. He was arrested amid nationwide violent protests sparked by, among other things, an increase in fuel prices. The unrest has resulted in thousands of arrests and dozens of deaths.
