President Joe Biden and allies in the mainstream media have attempted to downplay the multiple scandals surrounding his son, Hunter. A new report only adds fuel to that fire, however.
According to the Washington Examiner, Hunter Biden is now facing claims that he ditched his Secret Service security detail in Europe while in pursuit of a secretive business deal in Kazakhstan in 2014.
“They are not happy about it”
The latest information came from emails obtained from a laptop that reportedly belonged to the younger Biden, who abandoned the device at a Delaware computer repair shop.
Independent cyber forensic experts are said to have examined the laptop and determined the information to be legitimate and not manufactured.
Hunter Biden sent the email to then-business partner Devon Archer and Vadim Pzharskyi, an executive at Burisma regarding a planned business venture. Burisma is the same Ukrainian energy company both Archer and the younger Biden had recently joined as board members.
It was clear from the email that Hunter Biden, whose father was vice president at the time, did not want Secret Service agents tagging along.
“Vadim — I’ve chosen to carry on from Paris without the Secret Service,” he wrote on May 26, 2014. “They are not happy about it, but it seemed far too complicated and unnecessary.”
“More to come”
The correspondence came in response to Pozharskyi’s inquiry regarding how many agents would be accompanying Hunter Biden so that he could arrange a charter jet of the appropriate size. He later revealed that he reserved a large plane regardless of the absent security detail.
An earlier batch of emails laid out an itinerary for the Kazakhstan trip, including a birthday celebration for Archer and plans to meet with the nation’s then-prime minister. During the trip, Hunter Biden reportedly focused on arrangements to secure the rights to a proven oil reserve field.
The revelation coincides with a Breitbart report from last year citing revelations that Hunter Biden ditched his Secret Service agents in 2014 shortly after accepting the Burisma board position.
As the Senate Homeland Security Committee determined, the president’s son had previously traveled along with his security detail to various destinations around the globe.
Hunter Biden has long been hounded by questions about his international lobbying efforts and seat on the Ukrainian firm’s board along with speculation about his father’s involvement in certain business deals. As former Trump White House chief of staff Mark Meadows recently said, there is “more to come.”
