Then-Vice President Joe Biden’s Office Exchanged Nearly 20,000 Emails with Hunter’s Investment Firm – A recent Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request has unveiled a significant exchange of emails between then-Vice President Joe Biden’s office and his son Hunter Biden’s investment firm, Rosemont Seneca. The FOIA request revealed a total of 19,335 emails exchanged between the two parties.
Joe Biden Was Not Telling the Truth
The content of these emails has sparked questions regarding President Biden’s previous claims that he never discussed business matters with his son. Such claims now seem to be outright lies.
A former business associate of Hunter Biden, Devon Archer, had testified that the then-Vice President joined numerous phone calls and in-person meetings with Hunter’s foreign business associates during their collaborative ventures.
This revelation raised concerns about potential conflicts of interest and contradicted the assertion that business matters were never discussed.
One of the focal points of interest was the involvement of Hunter Biden with Burisma, a Ukrainian energy company. During his time as Vice President, Joe Biden was connected to Hunter’s activities with the company, raising questions about potential influence and its implications.
Bank records obtained by the House Oversight Committee further suggested financial ties between the Biden family and foreign oligarchs in countries like Russia, Kazakhstan, Ukraine, China, and Romania. The records indicated that over $20 million in payments from foreign sources were made to the Biden family and their associates, raising concerns about financial transparency and potential conflicts of interest.
The intricate network of over 20 companies associated with the Biden family has been pointed out by GOP lawmakers, who argue that this system was intended to conceal funds received from foreign sources.
The recent FOIA request also unveiled additional email exchanges, shedding light on communications between then-Vice President Biden’s office and both Hunter Biden and his brother, Jim Biden. These revelations have intensified scrutiny of the Biden family’s business dealings.
House Oversight Committee Chairman, James Comer, has sought unrestricted access to communications between Joe Biden’s office and Hunter Biden, seeking unredacted copies of relevant documents. A particularly crucial email from 2015, where then-communications director Kate Bedingfield indicated the Vice President’s approval of statements regarding Hunter Biden’s role with Burisma, is among the requested documents.
‘Zero Evidence’ Biden Family Broke Laws Related to Hunter’s Businesses
In August a Democrat Congressman, Jim Himes, said it is “clear” Hunter Biden broke the law, following the collapse of his plea deal over tax misdemeanors.
“Let me say something that you never heard a Republican member of Congress say in the four years of the Trump administration, which is that if Hunter Biden broke the law, he should be prosecuted,” Himes (D-Connecticut) told MSNBC on Friday.
“And it is clear that he broke the law with respect to taxes and possibly the ownership of a handgun. He should be held accountable for that.”
Himes added there was “zero evidence” that the Bidens are guilty of any crimes related to Hunter’s business practices, and he slammed Republican claims of guilt as a “fever dream.”
