An ex-business partner has turned against Hunter Biden, as the Biden family struggles to keep a lid on a developing corruption scandal in the final weeks of Joe Biden’s bid for the presidency.
The former associate provided 26,000 e-mails to journalist and author Peter Schweizer that contain damning new information about Hunter’s foreign deals, and what Schweizer described as the “Biden business model” in an exclusive interview with Breitbart.
Hunter’s business partner flips, leaks more e-mails
The new e-mails were obtained directly from Bevan Cooney, a former Los Angeles club owner who was convicted in a fraud scheme in which Devon Archer, one of Hunter’s key business partners, was also convicted.
According to Schweizer, Cooney feels that he was the “fall guy,” and he provided his log-in information and written permission to Schweizer from prison to publish his e-mails. He “really feels like Hunter Biden was able to walk off scot-free,” Schweizer said.
The e-mails paint a fuller picture of the Biden “business model,” in which Hunter and other family members would sell access to the former vice president for profit, with more details on Hunter’s deals with China, Russian billionaire Yelena Baturina, and more, Schweizer told Breitbart.
“We’re going to be able to show that that relationship is much deeper and much longer than previously known and that Hunter Biden and his business partners performed various services for [Baturina] in terms of deals in the United States,” he said.
He added, “What’s very clear, and we will have reporting on this at Breitbart, what’s very clear is Hunter brings no money to the table. But he is considered the avenue to the administration.”
Hunter scandal continues to develop
This comes after the New York Post published e-mails, reportedly stored on Hunter’s laptop, which show that Hunter introduced his father to an executive of the Ukrainian company Burisma Holdings.
Joe Biden and his Democratic allies have tried to dismiss the scandal as “Russian disinformation” — but that idea has been disputed by Trump’s top spy, Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe, who said there is no evidence of such. At any rate, these new e-mails seem to call Biden’s response into further doubt.
“We’re actually going to place the emails up so people can read them themselves,” Schweizer said.
“These are not printouts, these are not PDFs—we actually go into the Gmail account and pull the emails out and download them. They are timestamped. These are real.”
Is this all part of some elaborate Russian plot, or are the Bidens just crooked?
