Only days after White House visitor logs revealed then-Vice President Joe Biden had met with Hunter Biden’s business associate while in office, new emails report Biden may have paid legal fees for his son’s Chinese deals and raise further questions as to a discrepancy of over $5 million in financial reports.
The documents, exclusively obtained by the Daily Mail, focus on government transparency reports submitted to the Office of Government Ethics (OGE) and a January 2019 email from Hunter’s assistant, Katie Dodge.
Daily Mail compared the OGE filings of Biden representing 2017 – 2019 and found a discrepancy of around $5.2 million in reported income from his firm CelticCapri, used for speaking and writing engagements, when compared to his IRS tax returns.
They went on to report, under the subject line “Hunter’s bills,” Dodge reached out to book-keeper Linda Shapero, Biden aide Richard Ruffner, and Hunter to discuss an arrangement the former vice president had made to cover hundreds of thousands of bills for his son.
“Hello VP team,” the email acquired by Daily Mail began. “I spoke with Hunter today regarding his bills. It is my understanding that Hunt’s dad will cover these bills in the short-term as Hunter transitions in his career. I have a list of the current bills of which I am aware. I have attached the list below….”
The attached list totaled $737,130.61 in bills, including one for $28,382 listed as “Faegre Baker Daniels: BHR Restructuring,” due ASAP. BHR or Bohai Harvest RST is the private equity firm that as of March 2022, Hunter Biden still appeared to be a part-owner of through the LLC Skaneateles.
Hunter’s lawyer George Mesires, who would not comment on the younger Biden’s continued connection to the Chinese firm, is a partner with Faegre Baker Daniels, now known as Faegre Drinker.
As Daily Mail noted, the same year Joe Biden is alleged to have taken responsibility for these bills is when he made the campaign promise, “No one in my family will have an office in the White House, will sit in on meetings as if they are a cabinet member, will, in fact, have any business relationship with anyone that relates to a foreign corporation or a foreign country. Period. Period. End of story.”

The revelation that the president and his aides had met with Hunter’s business associate Eric Schwerin near-to or leading up to meetings with Chinese officials brings back the question of the “10 percent” of Hunter’s earnings that were believed to be going to Biden.
As reported, “This was the deal for which Joe Biden was to get a 10% cut, as cited in an infamous 2017 email on the laptop. ’10 [percent] held by H [Hunter] for the big guy.”
Though there is no conclusive evidence that the monies left out of the OGE report may be associated with Hunter Biden’s foreign business dealings, the credibility of the president remaining distanced from his son’s arrangement continues to wither.
Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) told the Mail, “Evidence of the president’s financial and business connections to Hunter continues to grow. It’s imperative for the first family to show the American people the transparency that they deserve.”
