Though a veritable mountain of evidence already exists that now-President Joe Biden has long been aware of – and indeed involved in – his son’s spurious foreign business dealings, the New York Post now reports that newly-reviewed materials from his son Hunter’s abandoned laptop once again give lie to the chief executive’s repeated denials of the same.
Calendar details extracted from Hunter Biden’s infamous computer reportedly show that the troubled first son conferred with his father on no fewer than 30 different occasions between 2008 and 2016, either at the White House or at the official residence of the vice president, often in the immediate aftermath of overseas business trips that have been the subject of much skepticism and speculation.
Many of those encounters have raised concerns that they were held to facilitate the exchange of information between Hunter Biden’s foreign clients and benefactors and his politically powerful father, a notion bolstered by the fact that for 21 of the 30 meetings referenced in the calendar data, Hunter Biden’s business partner, Eric Schwerin, was invited to attend.
As the Post noted, some of the questionable meetings came close on the heels of Hunter Biden’s jaunts to visit foreign dignitaries and business leaders, including engagements with Russian oligarchs, the Romanian Ambassador to the U.S., the prime minister of Cote d’Ivoire, and former Colombian President Andres Pastrana Arango.
Starting when he was on the 2020 presidential campaign trail, Joe Biden has issued strenuous denials that he ever spoke to his son about his foreign business entanglements, let alone had any knowledge of them, and the White House has continued to play along with that insistence up to the present time.
That position grew more tenuous than ever, though, when late last month, even more damning materials from the laptop surfaced suggesting that Joe Biden was completely in the loop with regard to his son’s money-making schemes abroad and that he made sure to keep a close watch on the situation.
As the Washington Examiner noted, gleaned from the computer was a voicemail message left by Joe Biden for Hunter that contained words of reassurance that amid the release of a New York Times article examining the latter’s involvement with a problematic Chinese energy firm, he was likely off the hook in terms of further risk of legal or public relations exposure.
“I thought the article released online, it’s going to be printed tomorrow in the Times, was good, the elder Biden told his son, adding, “I think you’re clear.”
Despite the deluge of patently contradictory evidence otherwise, the president and his handlers continue to assume that the electorate will continue suspending disbelief when it comes to Biden family graft, and whether or not legal accountability will ever come for Hunter and his dad, the appalling truth is out in the open in plain sight.
