Hunter Biden, son of current President Joe Biden, admitted in 2014 that his longtime business partner Eric Schwerin was a “close confidant and counsel” to then-Vice President Joe Biden, according to an email from his abandoned laptop verified by Fox News Digital.
In February 2014, Schwerin emailed Hunter to review a letter of recommendation for the Vice President. After Hunter suggested changes, Schwerin thanked him and said he was trying to make sure the reader understood there was a real relationship “that it wasn’t just a letter he was writing for a friend of a friend or something.”
The House Oversight Committee recently asked Hunter and Schwerin to turn over information related to foreign business dealings as Republicans investigate whether members of the Biden family leveraged their positions.
President Biden has repeatedly said he had no knowledge of his son’s business dealings, though Fox News Digital previously reported that he met with at least 14 of Hunter’s business associates while vice president—including Schwerin—who visited the White House at least 27 times between 2009 and 2016.
On one occasion in 2010, Vice President Biden had a sit-down with Schwerin in the West Wing and on May 14, 2016 they attended a dinner party together at an Italian restaurant in Washington D.C.
Many Republican voters have expressed growing concerns about what is happening inside the White House and are speculating if there is any truth to the reports about Joe Biden’s involvement in his son’s business deals. With so much speculation surrounding these alleged connections, Republican voters want answers from the Administration before casting their ballots this November.
As questions remain unanswered, Biden’s Republican challengers have sought to use the ongoing investigation into Hunter’s foreign business activities as a primary focus of their campaigns. While President Biden has denied any involvement or knowledge of his son’s actions, many Republican voters do not believe him and are using the issue to point out what they see as ethical inconsistencies in the administration.
The lack of transparency and accountability from the Biden campaign has caused concern amongst both Republican voters and members of Congress who want to get to the bottom of the allegations and uncover any possible connections between Joe Biden and his son’s controversial business dealings.
Presidential hopeful Donald Trump Jr has been among those leading the charge against Biden, making multiple public statements on social media denouncing President Joe Biden for his alleged involvement in Hunter’s affairs. This provides ammunition for passionate Republican voters who view Trump Jr as an authority figure for their cause.
The emergence of this story could be particularly damaging for Joe Biden in November, as passionate Republican voters will make sure their voices are heard and will rally around anyone that provides transparency regarding this matter.
With more documents coming to light on a daily basis, it remains unclear exactly what is happening within the White House but with so much at stake come November, passionate Republican voters are eager for answers before casting their ballots.
