Hunter Biden laptop reveals dozens of meetings with dad at the White House

Hunter Biden allegedly used the Naval Observatory as his hub to meet foreign political and business leaders while Joe Biden was vice president for eight years

Hunter Biden met with his father at least 30 times at the White House or the vice president’s residence. In many of the instances, the meetings occurred just days after Hunter Biden returned home from overseas business tips.

According to the New York Post those breakfasts, lunches, and other jaunts between 2008 and 2016 raise questions about whether Hunter was communicating messages to his father on behalf of foreign clients and cast new doubt on the president’s repeated denials that he had any role in his son’s ambiguous overseas business affairs.

The meetings were found in a review of the personal calendar on Hunter Biden’s abandoned laptop. In addition to Hunter allegedly using the Naval Observatory as his hub to meet foreign political and business leaders while Joe Biden was vice president for eight years—Eric Schwerin, the president of Hunter’s investment company Rosemont Seneca Partners, also often visited the Naval Observatory for meetings with then-Vice President Joe Biden.

Eric Schwerin, the president of Hunter Biden’s investment company Rosemont Seneca Partners, is named as a calendar invite recipient on 21 of 30 listed meetings, with a green check frequently indicating his confirmed receipt of the invite for meetings with the vice president. Schwerin was a longtime Hunter Biden business confidante, and had access to the elder Biden’s personal financial information.

The emails and calendar invites are a small fraction of data from the contents of the portable drive originated from Hunter Biden’s MacBook Pro, which Hunter reportedly dropped off at a computer repair shop in Wilmington, Del., in April 2019 and never reclaimed.

According to reports, between Feb. 15-18, 2012, Hunter Biden was wined and dined by billionaire oligarchs in Moscow, including one now wanted for murder. Four days after his return, Hunter met with Vice President Biden, again at the Naval Observatory.

In addition to publishing numerous such meetings from Hunter’s laptop, the NY Post alos notes that on Nov 14. 2015, Hunter met with Romanian ambassador to the United States George Maior, before heading off for meetings in that country. He returned Nov. 17, and had breakfast with his father at the Naval Observatory two days later. Just months after the trip, he teamed up with former FBI Director Louis Freeh to help Romanian businessman Gabriel Popoviciu avoid jail time.

The top Republicans on the House Oversight Committee draws this conclusion, “When you look at the whole Biden business model with respect to Hunter Biden and Jim Biden—it’s always been to pedal influence, to sell the Biden name and to promise potential investors and potential people who would pay for their services access to the government at the highest levels,” Rep. James Comer (R-KY) explains, “Not just in the United States, but in other countries.”

The White House has not commented.

Balloon diplomacy blows China off course

Published

on

China claims an “airship” that is flying over the United States is for civilian meteorological and other scientific purposes and voiced regret that it strayed into U.S. airspace.

U.S. officials said on Thursday that a Chinese spy balloon has been flying over the United States for a couple of days, in what would be a brazen act just days ahead of a planned trip to Beijing by U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken.

In a statement late on Friday, China’s foreign ministry also said that it would continue to maintain communications with the United States to properly handle the unexpected situation.

“The airship is from China and is civilian in nature, used for meteorological and other scientific research. Due to the influence of westerly winds and its limited control capability, the airship deviated from its intended course,” it said.

“China regrets that the airship strayed into the United States by mistake due to force majeure. China will continue to maintain communication with the U.S. side to properly handle this accident,” it said.

U.S. announces longer-range rocket for Ukraine

Published

on

A new rocket that would double Ukraine’s strike range in its war with Russia was included in a $2.175 billion U.S. military aid package.

The new weapon, the Ground Launched Small Diameter Bomb (GLSDB), will allow Ukraine’s military to hit targets at twice the distance reachable by the rockets it now fires from the U.S.-supplied High Mobility Artillery Rocket System (HIMARS).

The 151 km (94 mile) GLSDB will put all of Russia’s supply lines in eastern Ukraine within reach, as well as part of Russian-occupied Crimea, which Moscow annexed in 2014.

“As part of the USAI package, we will be providing Ground Launched Small Diameter Bomb to Ukraine,” Brigadier General Patrick Ryder told a news briefing at the Pentagon. USAI stands for Ukraine Security Assistance Initiative (USAI).

Friday’s aid pledge opens the door to many more deliveries of the Ground Launched Small Diameter Bombs (GLSDB).

When the new rockets arrive, it will mark the first time Ukraine has seen its rocket range grow exponentially since U.S. furnished HIMARS in late-June 2022.

HIMARS have a 77 km (48 mile) range and were instrumental in Ukraine’s counter offensive against Russian forces, which invaded on Feb. 24, 2022.
