Editor note: In 2020, we saw a nationwide push to “defund the police”. While we all stood here shaking our heads wondering if these people were serious… they cut billions of dollars in funding for police officers. And as a result, crime has skyrocketed – all while the same politicians who said “you don’t need guns, the government will protect you” continued their attacks on both our police officers and our Second Amendment rights.
And that’s exactly why we’re launching this national crowdfunding campaign as part of our efforts to help “re-fund the police”.
WASHINGTON, DC- A blockbuster report by the Daily Mail is reporting that the current occupant of the Oval Office (when he’s not in the fake set across the street) Joe Biden may soon become caught up in the FBI’s probe into Hunter Biden’s finances, according to some experts.
Emails obtained by the Daily Mail gleaned from Hunter Biden’s abandoned laptop show that Joe and Hunter Biden not only shared bank accounts, but also paid each other’s bills. The report also notes that Joe Biden may have in fact contributed to funding Hunter’s 2018 prostitution and drug binge, albeit inadvertently.
The emails, between Hunter and his business partner at Rosemont Seneca, Eric Schwerin revealed the latter was working on Joe Biden’s taxes, showed discussions revealing the Biden’s paid each other’s household bills, fielded requests for a book deal for Joe Biden, then serving as vice president, and also the donation of Biden’s papers from his time as Senator to the University of Delaware.
The emails raised some questions as to why Schwerin was so involved in Joe Biden’s affairs as vice president as opposed to government officials assigned to the vice-president’s office.
The claims made by Hunter of a shared bank account with his father also begs the question if the funds from that joint account were used for Hunter Biden’s May 2018 bender with a prostitute in a Hollywood hotel, the Mail piece reported.
The existence of a federal investigation into his tax affairs was admitted by Hunter Biden himself last December.
Of course all of this also calls into question claims that Joe Biden had made that he had no knowledge of his son Hunter’s business dealings, an important claim because Joe Biden used that as an excuse claiming no quid pro quo in Hunter’s membership on the board of Burisma Holdings, a Ukrainian energy company whose CEO was being investigated by a Ukrainian prosecutor.
Joe Biden, as liaison to Ukraine in his role as vice president, demanded that prosecutor be fired, which he in fact admitted during an interview.
According to the Mail, a former federal prosecutor who is also an expert on money laundering and criminal tax law told them that if money was indeed flowing between the two Biden’s it could embroil Joe Biden in the probe, however he noted investigators would have a tough time getting Joe Biden to sit down for an interview.
“Whatever transaction you’re looking at, if there’s a connection to a family member or a friend, sure the answer is yes [they would be investigated],” said the ex-prosecutor, who asked not to be named.
“Obviously, if you’re talking about the President of the United States, you’d better have a pretty damn good reason to talk to that person.”
One such email obtained by the Daily Mail read:
“Your Dad’s Delaware tax refund check came today. I am depositing it in his account and writing a check in that amount back to you since he owes it to you. Don’t think I need to run it by him, but if you want to go ahead. If not, I will deposit tomorrow.”
The FBI investigation, aside from a probe of Hunter Biden’s taxes reportedly also includes a look into his foreign business dealings, as well as the potential for money laundering charges.
Last year, the Senate Security Committee issued a report warning that the Chinese Communist Party, aka the Chinese government was working an influence deal on the White House through a billion-dollar business deal between Rosemont Seneca and Chinese oil company CEFC.

One expert says that if Joe Biden were not currently president he would likely already be on the prosecutor’s radar by now, along with Hunter. So says John Cassara, a former U.S. intelligence officer and treasury special agent, an expert in money laundering investigations.
“The information publicly available is very worrisome, particularly in the areas of corruption,” Cassara told the Mail.
“They could go at this from all different avenues. Follow the corruption trail and then charge money laundering,” he said.
“Corruption is a predicate offense for money laundering. And besides corruption, it’s the perception of corruption. This kind of thing should not be happening. It undermines full faith in the US government. It undermines trust and our international reputation. It’s an embarrassment.”
There is a litany of evidence showing connections between Rosemont Seneca and Biden’s vice presidential office during his term as Obama’s vice president. For example, the firm received special favors from the White House during Biden’s term, including tickets to exclusive White House events and private tours for Rosemont Seneca’s clients and/or associates.
Moe inexplicably, New Jersey Sen. Bob Menendez made a request for Joe Biden to host the U.S.-Spain Council’s 2010 annual meeting at the official vice presidential residence, the Naval Observatory. Instead of contacting Joe Biden’s office, the arrangements were made through Schwerin.
In a clear case of quid pro quo, Hunter Biden and Schwerin discussed the possibility of being able to connect with “CEOs of major banks” if they facilitated the request.
Other information obtained by the Daily Mail show that Hunter Biden complained “half” his salary went toward paying his father’s bills during his term as vice president, once again calling into question Joe Biden’s claims that he knew nothing about Hunter’s business dealings.
In fact, a 2019 text to his daughter Naomi showed Hunter saying:
“I hope you all can do what I did and pay everything for this entire family for 30 years. It’s really hard. But don’t worry, unlike pop [Joe Biden] I won’t make you give me half your salary.”
Among those bills Hunter covered for his father included a $190 per month AT& T phone bill, along with thousands of dollars in repairs to Joe Biden’s lakeside home in Wilmington, Delaware.
In another bizarre twist, Hunter Biden complained to one of his assistants in an email that he had been closed out of his own bank account and his father had been using it.
“Too many cooks in the kitchen Too many profile changes and such. Happened 10 days ago too…my dad has been using most lines on this account which I’ve through the gracious offerings of Eric have paid for past 11 years,” Hunter said.
The emails on Hunter’s laptop showed a number of references to Joe and Hunter Biden paying each other’s bills.
June 5, 2010, Schwerin wrote:
“FYI, there are a few outstanding bills that need to be paid and I am not sure which ones are a priority and which should get paid out of ‘my’ account and which should be put on hold or paid out of the ‘Wilmington Trust Social Security Check Account.”
“There is about $2,000 extra in ‘my’ account beyond what is used for monthly expenses.”
A number of email exchanges went out from Schwerin in which he spoke to Joe Biden’s not paying certain bills and agreeing to do so out of the accounts.
In July, Schwerin once again sent an email to Hunter:
“Does it make sense to see if your Dad has some time in the next couple of weeks while you are in DC to talk about it? Your dad just called me about his mortgage…so it dawned on me it might be a good time [for] some positive news about his future earnings potential.”
The emails showed that Schwerin was involved in Joe Biden’s tax returns as early as 2010.
For example on April 9, 2010, Schwerin wrote to Hunter: “I was dealing all afternoon with JRB’s [Joe Biden] taxes (but solved a big issue—so it was all worth it).”
Then in June, he wrote: “Your Dad’s Delaware tax refund check came today. I am depositing it in his account and writing a check in that amount back to you since he owes it to you Don’t think in need to run it by him, but if you want to go ahead. If not I will deposit tomorrow.”
There was no reason given as to why Joe might have owed Hunter money.
Schwerin was also apparently involved in coordinating with others for the tax return of “DR” Jill Biden, who is referred to as “Mom-Mom” by family and other close friends.
“FYI, we have a bill for approx. $800 from Bill Morgan for all the work he did for Mom-Mom on her taxes, household help, etc.,” Schwerin wrote to Hunter.
“Who should pay the bill? Do you and Beau [Biden] want to split it? Should I ask [Joe’s sister] Val, [sister in law] Sara, or your Dad? I’d like to get it paid sooner rather than later.”
So involved was Schwerin in Biden’s financial affairs that he even worked handling book deals.
In November 2015, Penguin Random House editor at large Susan Mercandetti sent an email to Kathy Chung, Joe Biden’s assistant proposing a possible book deal with him.
“We thought that a book on living with grief is something that would be important to so many people and clearly it [is] a subject about which he has spoken so poignantly,” Mercandetti wrote.
Chung sent the mail off to Schwerin, asking, “Hey, do I send these to you? If yes, can you pls email her and tell her you received, or she’ll continue to email me.”
Schwerin wrote back to Mercandetti, writing: “Right now we are compiling a list of all the requests that come in to the VP regarding books, etc., so that when he’s ready to focus on this we’ll have them all in one place.”
“Fee [sic] free to reach out to me if you have any questions in the meantime.”
In April 2010, Schwerin was contacted by the chief of staff to U.S.-Spain Council chair Menendez with the request to host the groups annual meeting at the vice presidential residence.
Schwerin sent the request to Hunter Biden, noting they could parlay that meeting into the possibility of getting future clients.
“Spanish members include CEOs of the major banks—Banco Santander, etc., Iberdola, Spanish Rail, etc. Amb. Solomont is a big supporter and JRB [Joe Biden] went to speak to group in Boca when a Senator.”
“Having their annual meeting in DC in July. Spanish Foreign Minister attends. Danny wants to explore with you possibility of getting VP to host event at NAVOBS [Naval Observatory] for group. Maybe even an appearance at a reception at a hotel. I’ll get more info and we can discuss with Danny next week. I think Solomont mentioned your interest in Spain and that is why Danny is calling us.”
All of this confirms the belief by many that Hunter Biden was targeted by foreign interests to gain access to his father and by extension the US government.
That influence also went the other way to Rosemont Seneca, which received dozens of tickets to events at the White House which they parlayed into getting business associates and potential clients.
The apparent shared bank account between Hunter and Joe Biden also leads to speculation that the funds for Hunter’s Hollywood bender with a hooker in 2018 may have used funds from that account.
While Biden was holed up with the hooker, Robert Savage, a recently retired Secret Service agent named Robert Savage sent a text to Hunter and warned he “would have to assume you are in danger” and would need to “commandeer” keys if he didn’t come out of the suite at The Jeremy Hotel in Los Angele, where he was with the Russian hooker whom he had wired $25,000.
“Come on H [Hunter] this is lined to Celtic’s account” which was the Secret Service code name for Joe Biden. “DC is calling me every 10. Let me up or come down. I can’t help you if you don’t let me H.”
The Daily Mail said they didn’t know what Savage meant by account—whether that meant charges for the prostitute on the joint account, or perhaps the cellphone account they were texting on.
