While Joe Biden maintains that he has not profited from his family’s foreign business dealings, emails and text messages from his son Hunter reveal otherwise.
As the investigation into Hunter Biden continues to reveal incriminating details of his business dealings in China and Ukraine, new evidence has been uncovered that strongly suggests Hunter has been paying for many of his father’s expenses including home repairs and phone bills.
While there is no direct evidence of the transfers on the abandoned laptop, there are emails and text messages that reveal he was paying for many of Joe’s expenses.
In text messages from 2019 to his daughter Naomi, Hunter complained about paying “half” of his father’s salary:
“I love all of you, but I don’t receive any respect and that’s fine I guess – works for you apparently.
I hope you all can do what I did and pay for everything for this entire family for 30 years.
It’s really hard. But don’t worry, unlike Pop [Joe], I won’t make you give me half your salary.”
The bills that Hunter was paying for his father included his AT&T phone bill which was about $190 per month. These payments are described in an email from 2010, which is when Joe would have been earning $225,000 per year as Vice President, leaving him more than capable of footing his own phone bill.
According to the emails, Hunter also paid for thousands of dollars worth of repairs for Joe’s lakeside home in Wilmington, Delaware.
In emails from 2010 between Hunter and his business partner, Eric Scherwin, they discussed the amount that was needed to pay Joe’s bills. The subject of the emails was ‘JRB bills’, which are Joe’s initials – Joseph Robinette Biden.
The bills included $2,600 to a contractor for a “stone retaining wall” at Joe’s Delaware home, $1,475 for painting the “back wall and columns” of the house, and $1,239 for air conditioning repairs.
“FYI, there are a few outstanding bills that need to be paid and I am not sure which ones are a priority and which should get paid out of ‘my’ account and which should be put on hold or paid out of the ‘Wilmington Trust Social Security Check Account,” wrote Schwerin in the email.”This is from last summer I think and needs to be paid pretty soon.”
There was also another $475 “for shutters” owed to RBI construction detailed in the email.
What Scherwin men’s by including quotations around “my” is not clear, but it is apparent that the account is partially used to pay Joe’s bills.
Three days after the first email, Schwerin sent Hunter another email saying, “Mike Christopher [builder] is hassling me so I am paying a couple of the smaller things since I haven’t heard from your Dad. Know he’s busy — so it’s OK. But if you think he has a moment or two to review the e-mail I sent you let me know.”
Other damning emails from Hunter’s laptop confirm that Joe received financial benefits from Hunter’s dealings in China. An email from 2017 confirms that 10 percent equity in the Chinese energy conglomerate CEFC was set aside by Hunter for his father. In an email from Hunter’s former business partner Tony Bobulinski, he wrote: “10 held by H for the big guy,” meaning: “10 [percent] held by H[unter] for the big guy.”
Bobulinski appeared in an interview with Tucker Carlson in 2020 where he said he felt like Joe Biden was “compromised” because of Hunter’s dealings with China.
Here’s Hunter Biden’s former business partner Tony Bobulinski talking in October 2020 about a loan Chinese energy company CEFC gave to the Bidens and saying that the Biden family is compromised by the Chinese government.
