While the laptop that Hunter Biden abandoned at a Delaware computer repair business has received increased attention in recent weeks, Democrats continue to insist that it has nothing to do with President Joe Biden.
Yet, as New York Post writer Jon Levin pointed out in a piece over the weekend, messages found on the device are making those claims difficult to believe.
Levine pointed to one text sent by Hunter Biden in 2019 to his daughter Naomi in which he complained of having to kick up money to his father.
“I hope you all can do what I did and pay for everything for this entire family for 30 years,” Hunter Biden Biden wrote. “It’s really hard. But don’t worry, unlike pop, I won’t make you give me half your salary.”
What’s more, a message sent to Hunter Biden by business partner Eric Schwerin in June of 2010 indicates that then-Vice President Joe Biden reimbursed his son.
“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,” Schwerin explains.
This was followed in July by an email from Schwerin to Hunter Biden that was titled “JRB Future Memo” suggesting that a conversation with the vice president about money had taken place.
“Your Dad just called me (about his mortgage) and mentioned he’d be out a lot soon and not really back until Labor Day,” Schwerin wrote, adding, “He could use some positive news about his future earnings potential.”
Special counsel demanded
Another 2010 email from Schwerin was titled “JRB Bills,” and it detailed a total of over $6,000 in expenses tied to Joe and Jill Biden’s palatial Delaware home.
Hunter Biden is under investigation by federal authorities in Delaware for tax fraud, something that George Washington University law professor Jonathan Turley told Fox News last month is grounds for a special counsel.
“Attorney General Merrick Garland has refused to appoint a special counsel,” Turley said. “I have no idea how he has reached that conclusion.”
“There is a serious appearance, if not a real conflict of interest here. It’s impossible to investigate these emails without running across the president repeatedly.”
