Joe Biden has insisted for years that he never got involved in Hunter Biden’s business dealings. A Fox News Digital trawl through e-mail and other records shows at least 14 occasions in which Biden as VP met with Biden’s business partners and prospective clients, however:
President Biden met with at least 14 of Hunter Biden’s business associates while he was vice president in the Obama White House, casting further doubt on the president’s repeated claims that he had no knowledge of his son’s foreign business dealings.
“I have never spoken to my son about his overseas business dealings,” Biden said in 2019.
But the president met with at least 14 of Hunter’s business associates from the U.S., Mexico, Ukraine, China and Kazakhstan over the course of his vice presidency, a Fox News Digital review found.
Apparently, it didn’t always help. In an e-mail exchange with Miguel Aleman Magnani, Hunter became indignant when the Mexico-based businessman apparently ghosted him. He reminded Magnani that he’d repeatedly put Magnani’s associates in the same room as the Big Guy, including at Biden’s VP residence, and that he expected some quid pro quo:
Hunter invited Magnani to greet the vice president upon landing, but in the same email, Hunter expressed indignation with Magnani, accusing him of going silent on their business partnership despite Hunter giving him access to his father.
“I have brought every single person you have ever asked me to bring to the F’ing White House and the Vice President’s house and the inauguration and then you go completely silent,” Hunter wrote in the email.
“I don’t know what it is that I did but I’d like to know why I’ve delivered on every single thing you’ve ever asked – and you make me feel like I’ve done something to offend you.” he continued.
That’s not exactly subtle, is it?
People will point to the source and question the data. That’s fair, given that Fox News hasn’t exactly been a cheery font of news for either Joe or Hunter Biden. However, the same argument was made when the New York Post reported on Hunter’s laptop initially too, and that turned out to be accurate. The national media resisted covering the issue until more than a year after the election. At this point, the skeptics have a worse track record than the Murdoch empire does, so … maybe we should demand a lot more scrutiny into these communications than a lot less.
