Joe Biden met with Hunter Biden’s White House business partner

Hunter Biden’s closest business partner made at least 19 visits to the White House and other official locations between 2009 and 2015, including a meeting with then-Vice President Joe Biden in the west wing.

Former President Barack Obama’s White House Visitor Logs examined by The Post casts further doubt on Joe Biden’s claims that he knew nothing of his son’s relationships.

Eric Schwerin met with Vice President Biden on Nov. 17, 2010, in the West Wing, when he was chairman of the since-disbanded investment fund Rosemont Seneca Partners.

The logs also reveal that Schwerin met various close associates of Joe and Jill Biden at key times in Hunter’s life when he was making multimillion-dollar deals in foreign countries, including China. Yet President Biden has long insisted he has no involvement in his son’s foreign affairs. “I never spoke to my son about his business relations abroad,” he said in 2019.

“Not everyone meets the Vice President of the United States at the White House. The press should ask why Hunter Biden’s business associates — like Eric Schwerin — had this privilege and access to the Obama White House,” said Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wisconsin). “It’s further proof that Joe Biden lied when he said he never discussed Hunter’s foreign business dealings. It’s high time for the corporate media to demand the truth of Joe Biden The corruption of Biden Inc. must be exposed.

Of all of Hunter Biden’s business associates, Schwerin had the most intimate access to the vice president’s personal finances.

His deep involvement in the personal and professional lives of both Bidens was first revealed in emails contained on a laptop that Hunter Biden abandoned at a Delaware computer repair store in April 2019.

Hard drive emails show he was involved in Joe Biden’s personal taxes and discussed the vice president’s financial future with him.

In October 2009, just months after Hunter co-founded Rosemont Seneca, Schwerin met Evan Ryan, Vice President Biden’s assistant for intergovernmental affairs and public liaison, at Eisenhower’s Executive Office building where the vice president’s office, according to visitor logs. .

While working in the halls of power, Ryan acted as a go-between for Hunter Biden and his cronies, hard drive emails show.

In an email dated February 18, 2010, Ryan received a request from Chris Sloan, Director of Government Relations for the International Union of Painters and Allied Trades, advocating that union lawyer Craig Becker be appointed to the National Relations Council work. Sloan asked Vice President Biden to pressure Obama on the issue. Hunter has been CCed.

“Thanks Chris – I’ll pass this one on,” she replied to the two.

Obama nominated Becker to the post through a recess appointment a month later, sparking howls of protest from Republicans at the time.

Sloan declined to comment on the emails.

Biden claimed he had "never spoke to my son about his affairs abroad."

Ryan went on to marry Antony Blinken, who is now President Biden’s Secretary of State, when she herself was plum-punched as White House Cabinet Secretary in January 2021.

Schwerin’s visit to Joe Biden in November 2010 coincided with a time of great personal turmoil for the second family.

That same month, Hunter Biden relapsed into alcoholism and again went to the Crossroads Center Antigua rehabilitation center to dry off.

On August 18, 2011, Vice President Biden arrived in China for three days of high-level meetings with top leaders, including future Chinese President Xi Jinping.

A few days later, on August 22, Schwerin was in a meeting in the West Wing with Kellen Suber, executive assistant to Vice President Biden..

In October, Hunter Biden was in Hong Kong with Jim Bulger where he was tasted and dined by Che Feng, a Chinese shadow tycoon identified on the hard drive as “Superchairman”. Feng is the son-in-law of Dai Xianglong, a senior Chinese Communist Party official.

In June 2013, Hunter Biden struck a deal with Chinese businessman Jonathan Li to create BHR Partners. Schwerin met Joe Biden’s aides in March and May of that year.

“He did some financial stuff for the family but that’s really all I know,” Margaret Campbell, a former special assistant to Jill Biden, told the Post, adding that “it would make sense if he stopped. to the White House”.

Schwerin emailed Hunter Biden about taxes and his father's financial future, according to emails from Hunter's laptop.

Campbell met Schwerin in February 2010 on the White House Archives show.

Hard drive emails show Schwerin was handling Joe Biden’s ‘Delaware tax refund check’.

In a July 6, 2010 email titled “JRB Future Memo,” Schwerin said he was in touch with the vice president about personal financial matters and was looking forward to engaging in discussions with him on how to take advantage of his departure.

“Your dad just called me (about his mortgage) and mentioned he’ll be away soon and won’t really be back until Labor Day…He could use some positive news about his potential for future income,” Schwerin wrote to Hunter Biden.

Schwerin also met with Vice President Biden’s chief administrative officer, Faisal Amin in March 2013.

In March 2012, Schwerin met Betsy Massey for a “West Wing Tour”. Massey was an assistant to Jill Biden and wife of Robert Walker – another business pal of Hunter Biden.

Hunter Biden has also intervened regularly, introducing himself for a state dinner offered by President Obama to French President François Hollande in February 2014. Hunter Biden also visited Michael Strautmanis, chief of staff to White House senior adviser Valérie Jarrett.

Devon Archer and Chris Heinz — two other founders of Rosemont Seneca — were at the White House in 2009 and 2011 for a “holiday reception” and a “group visit,” respectively, according to the records.

Rosemont Seneca founder Devon Archer also visited the White House twice in 2009 and 2011.

Schwerin was a regular guest at the United States Naval Observatory Vice President’s Residence where he attended holiday parties and an inaugural reception in 2013.

In May 2021, The Post revealed that Biden had hired a Rosemont employee, Anne Marie Person, into his private staff while she was vice president.

Neither Schwerin nor the White House responded to The Post’s requests for comment.

Republicans said the records once again underscore the need for an investigation.

“There is growing evidence that Hunter Biden’s business was to provide access to his father and to the highest levers of power. It stinks of pay-to-play. The clear solution is a Special Counsel investigation to fairly investigate the Biden family’s disturbing allegations of corruption,” Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) told The Post.

Hunter Biden is already facing a federal investigation into his tax return, which insiders say has widened to include potential money laundering and violations of lobbying laws. Former trading partners are said to have cooperated with the federal government. House leaders have promised to subpoena the young Biden before Congress to answer questions if they regain control of the chamber in 2022.

Chief among the unanswered questions is the identity of the Big Guy – a character mentioned on the hard drive as someone who would receive a piece of capital in a deal with a Chinese energy company.

Tony Bobulinski, another Hunter Biden business partner who appeared frequently in emails from the hard drive, said there was “no doubt” President Biden was “the big guy.”
