On the rare occasions when anyone in the press has dared to ask Joe Biden about his relationships with his son Hunter’s dodgy business partners, the elder Biden has assured us that he was never involved with them and he didn’t really discuss such things with his son. But more evidence has emerged showing that that was a load of malarkey. The New York Post has obtained some of the visitor logs from the Obama presidency and the documents reveal that Eric Schwerin, president of Rosemont Seneca Partners at that time, made at least nineteen trips to the White House during the Obama-Biden administration. And at least one of those trips included a sit-down meeting with Vice President Biden. For someone who didn’t know anything about Hunter’s business affairs, “the Big Guy” was certainly rather chatty with them.

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 sitdown with then-Vice President Joe Biden in the West Wing.

Visitor logs from the White House of former President Barack Obama reviewed by The Post cast further doubt over Joe Biden’s claims that he knew nothing of his son’s dealings.

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

The exact quote that Joe Biden gave on the campaign trail in 2019 was, “I have never spoken to my son about his overseas business dealings.” Does that really make any sense at this point?

The visitor logs also reveal that Schwerin not only met directly with Joe Biden, but he had multiple meetings with some top aides to both Joe and Jill Biden. And this was all taking place during the same era when Rosemont Seneca Partners was closing some very lucrative (for Hunter) deals with companies in China that were subsidiaries of the Chinese Communist Party.

You will recall that Eric Schwerin’s name has shown up before in records involving Biden Incorporated. Earlier this month, even more messages from Hunter Biden’s infamously abandoned laptop revealed that Schwerin had access to and at least partial control of a joint bank account shared by Joe and Hunter Biden. He was depositing checks into the account for the Vice President and writing checks to Hunter to cover expenses at Joe’s two Delaware mansions. The money was mixing and mingling in a way that makes it rather implausible to claim that the father and son’s business dealings were entirely separate.

The White House has desperately been trying to erase Hunter Biden’s business dealings from the record for some time now and they’ve had plenty of help from various arms of the media. In fact, Wikipedia recently deleted its entire entry for Rosemont Seneca. And even though the New York Times finally admitted that the Hunter laptop story was real (if not spectacular) more than a year after Biden was safely in office, you still rarely see the subject raised in respectable news outlets. I mean, we wouldn’t want to be rude about this, right?

Another person that is coming under additional scrutiny is Evan Ryan. She was a top aide to Joe Biden during the Obama presidency. (She’s now the White House Cabinet Secretary under Biden.) Some of the email records show that she was being lobbied by labor union activists to get Joe Biden to pressure Barack Obama to nominate union lawyer Craig Becker to the NLRB. For some odd reason, Hunter Biden was copied on those emails. (Ryan responded affirmatively to the request and Obama placed Becker on the NLRB via a recess appointment a month later.)

We should be asking ourselves (and somebody should be asking Joe Biden) why his son, who was not a holder of any public office, was being copied on emails like those. One obvious possibility is that the unions were using Hunter Biden to gain access to his father’s considerable influence with the White House. And if so, what was Hunter getting in return?

Mysteries abound when it comes to Biden Incorporated. Sadly, the curiosity of the mainstream media seems to be entirely missing in action on this matter.
