Since the run-up to the 2020 presidential election, mainstream media outlets have gone to unprecedented lengths to bury the scandals revealed by Hunter Biden’s famously abandoned laptop, but according to a former top official in the Trump White House, more of those secrets may soon see the light of day, as the Washington Examiner reports.
During a Wednesday interview with Grant Stinchfield of Newsmax, former Trump chief of staff Mark Meadows indicated that prior revelations about questionable Biden family business dealings are just the tip of a troubling iceberg. “I can tell you, there is more to come with Hunter Biden,” Meadows claimed.
The discussion that elicited that comment revolved around a recent New York Post story concerning material from the controversial laptop which appears to show that then-Vice President Joe Biden met with some of his son’s Russian, Ukrainian, and Kazakhstani business associates at a D.C. dinner back in 2015.
Email correspondence gleaned from the computer reveals that Hunter Biden took steps to ensure that his father’s appearance at the gathering did not raise suspicions. In a specific exchange with one of the attendees in advance of the dinner, he stated, “Ok – the reason for the dinner is ostensibly to discuss food security. Dad will be there but keep that between us for now. Thanks,” as Newsmax noted.
Another email, this time from Ukrainian energy executive Vadym Pozharskyi, expressed gratitude to Hunter for his father’s presence at the aforementioned dinner, saying, “Dear Hunter, thank you for inviting me to DC and giving an opportunity to meet your father and spent [sic] some time together.” Pozharskyi was a top official with Burisma, the natural gas firm that notably paid Hunter Biden $83,333 each month for serving on its board, as the Post also reported.
Notably, Hunter Biden has never disputed the authenticity of the laptop or the materials it contained, even going so far as to admit earlier this year that it “certainly” could belong to him, as the Examiner noted. His father, however, has long denied involvement in or knowledge of his son’s work in foreign countries, saying back in 2019, “I have never spoken to my son about his overseas business dealings,” as the Federalist reported last year.
In October of last year, the Biden campaign issued a more specific denial of allegations that the then-candidate had a financial stake in his son’s foreign business deals, asserting, “Joe Biden has never even considered being involved in business with his family, nor in any overseas business whatsoever. He has never held stock in any such business arrangements nor has any family member or any other person ever held stock for him.”
Implying that there is much more news still to break on the subject, Meadows lamented the fact that former President Donald Trump was forced to spend much of his presidency fighting ultimately unfounded claims of nefarious dealings with foreign leaders, observing:
It’s amazing how Joe Biden and Hunter Biden actually had a quid pro quo, and to accuse President Trump of using his influence to enrich his family was just not accurate. And now what we’re seeing is perhaps the real influence-peddling that took place was by then-Vice President Joe Biden.
Though it seems certain that mainstream journalists intend to run interference for the Bidens, regardless of the bombshells yielded by Hunter’s laptop, perhaps there is something to Meadows’ confidence that the family’s scandals are even deeper than first suspected and are so serious that they cannot be ignored.
