An ongoing FBI investigation into presidential son Hunter Biden can end up involving the President. Allegedly, father and son shared bank accounts and helped pay each other’s bills.
Emails From Hunter Biden’s Laptop Shows Shared Accounts
Emails recovered from an abandoned laptop owner by Hunter Biden showed clues that Biden Sr and Hunter shared expenses. There were email correspondences between Hunter Biden and Eric Schwein, his business partner at Rosemont Seneca.
It showed that Schwerin was working on the elder Biden’s taxes at the time. The emails also discussed that both Bidens paid each other’s household bills.
In addition, the emails showed that Schwerin fielded requests for book deals for the then-Vice President. Also, Schwerin managed the donation of the VP’s Senate papers to the University of Delaware.
Earlier, Hunter Biden claimed that he shared a bank account with his father. He also admitted last year that a federal investigation over his taxes was ongoing.
An email on April 9, 2010, showed that Schwerin sent Hunter a message about the elder Biden’s taxes. “I was dealing all afternoon with JRB's taxes (but solved a big issue – so it was all worth it),” it said.
Another email dated June 10 also showed Schwerin continues to handle Joe’s taxes. “Your Dad's Delaware tax refund check came today. I am depositing it in his account and writing a check-in that amounts 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,” it read. However, it remains unclear what Joe owes Hunter money for.
Emails Can Hook The President Into the FBI Investigation
An anonymous money laundering and criminal tax law expert contacted by the Daily Mail weighed in on the emails. He said that the elder Biden’s involvement can lead to his inclusion in the FBI investigation.
“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],” the expert said. “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.”
FBI and IRS Continue to Investigate Other Hunter Biden Dealings
Apart from the email trail, the FBI and the IRS are also investigating Hunter Biden for his business relationships. It’s possible that money laundering charges can surface from the investigation.
Former US Intelligence Officer and Treasury Special Agent John Cassara said that if Biden wasn’t President, he would already be under investigation. “The information available publicly is very worrisome, particularly in the areas of corruption. They could go at this from all different avenues. Follow the corruption trail and then charge money laundering,” he said.
In addition, Cassara said that “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.”
Hunter Biden in the Crosshairs
Over the years, some of Biden’s family members entered into business relationships with people who wanted access to Joe Biden. Hunter Biden is the most prominent among the family for going into business deals with questionable associates.
Dealings among family members include taking loans from lobbyists and getting businesses from labor groups. Hunter himself took a job at MNBA, a Delaware-based financial firm that is a major Biden contributor. He also joined the board of Burisma, a Ukrainian energy company facing charges of corruption.
