New messages show Bidens offering ‘safe harbor’ to Hunter as he flails over scandalous reports
In 2018, Hunter Biden’s world was falling apart.
The New York Times ran a story on one of her scandalous dealings with the Chinese, and her father, then the vice president, was dragged into the fray.
It seems Hunter was in a free fall and his uncle Jim Biden reached out to the newly discovered messages to offer him a “safe harbor.”
The exchange is an insight into the train wreck of life of a scion of one of the country’s most powerful families.
However, it’s also insight into a world of influence peddling where millions dry up in the Biden family’s coffers.
On their face, the messages appear to contradict President Biden’s public statements on foreign-influence peddling that funded Hunter’s drug-addled, self-destructive lifestyle.
The Times story sent shockwaves through the Biden family.
Despite a largely supportive media, Biden has long been known for effective padding.
Jim Biden has been repeatedly criticized for marketing his brother’s approach in pitches to clients.
Hunter knew the Times story was just the tip of the iceberg.
There were deals with foreign figures worth millions around the world and some of these figures had close ties to foreign intelligence services or regimes.
As recently revealed by the House Oversight Committee, Biden created a maze of corporations and accounts to transfer millions from these deals to members of the Biden family, including grandchildren.
Still, Joe Biden, as a presidential candidate and president, has repeatedly claimed that he had no knowledge of any of his son’s foreign dealings.
Those denials now appear patently false.
The laptop contains pictures of Hunter’s foreign business associates and meetings with Joe Biden.
It also includes a recording regarding a December 12, 2018 report by The Times detailing Hunter’s dealings with Ye Jianming, the head of CEFC China Energy Co.
You will later be arrested for corruption.
As Biden aides pushed the Times to change aspects of the story, Joe Biden called to report the results.
In his message, Biden ended his call to Hunter by stating “I think you’re clear. And still if you get a chance, call me, I love you.
The new messages indicate that Biden was concerned that Hunter was in a free fall as the deals were becoming known and revenues were falling.
Jim Biden seems to be rushing Hunter to fix the problem with the family.
He assures her that they can find her “a safe harbor” and that “I can work with you.[r] Father alone!”
The messages may refer to the fact that Hunter had previously complained that he was giving half of his earnings to his father and was now facing heavy financial demands.
He seems to have cut off the family.
It’s a dangerous development for a man who has long struggled with drugs and alcohol.
Hunter blasted drugs and women’s fortunes, including allegations that he may have used a shared credit card with his father to pay prostitutes.
Both Joe and Jim Biden were reaching out to assure Hunter that he was in the “clear” and a “safe harbor.”
However, Jim tells him to stay in touch and stay in the fold: “I can’t find you, believe it or not I was looking. I [have] Run by Hailey, you guys. Says texted you. . . . I want to help that all deals are still alive.
Aside from the genuine desire to protect a family member with a history of drug abuse, the undetected Hunter also represented a threat to the entire family.
A panicked Hunter threatens more than family harmony. There were millions that were being produced in countries like Ukraine, Romania, Russia and China.
The messages show that Hunter was spinning out of control and needed money fast — a lot of money. He told Jim Biden that he couldn’t even afford “food and gas” including monthly alimony to his ex-wife Kathleen Buhle.
He describes how President Biden was told he was “in a real danger zone.”
These messages highlight another inconvenient fact: Hunter was hardly someone who built trust or cash.
In 2018, he was a complete mess when foreign personalities were giving him money.
He was clearly out of touch with his family and was still short of money.
He had earlier complained that the Russians had blackmailed him. He was not only a danger to himself.
In his later book, Hunter admitted that he was a crack addict and alcoholic: “Drinking a quart of vodka a day in a room is absolutely, utterly debilitating” as well as “smoking long hours.”
Given these admissions, why were so many foreign personalities quick to give millions to this human wrecking ball?
Not only did he lack expertise in fields such as energy or mining, but he was, by his own account, barely able to work.
The answer seems pretty obvious.
It was classic corruption. I
Indeed, corruption has long been the favored form in Washington.
Still, these latest messages add a particularly sad element to the scandal.
Joe and Jim Biden were helping a man who was barely able to work.
However, Hunter was still allegedly a conduit for millions of foreign money.
He was the firebreak between money and any scandal.
This was made clear in a recent and rare sit-down interview; MSNBC’s Stephanie Ruhle delicately emphasized the scandals involving Hunter as a “personal” matter and assured the president (and viewers) that the as-yet-unknown allegations “have nothing to do with you. ” is included.
Hunter increasingly looks like the Bidens’ designated defender; Sin-food that might cost the team a couple of tax charges.
Yet, even now, to use the words of Jim Biden, “it can work.”
Hunter’s new “safe harbor” may be a limited allegation that expressly avoids charges as an unregistered agent.
Likewise, Attorney General Merrick Garland has adamantly refused to appoint a special counsel despite the president’s proposed cuts to these deals and instructions to use code names like “big guy” to disguise his role.
Recently, an IRS whistleblower came forward to accuse the Justice Department of interfering with Hunter’s tax investigation by “slow-moving” the investigation and making several decisions that worked to his advantage.
As made clear by Jim Biden, the Biden family always has a plan. Back in 2018, he assured his nephew that “it usually takes several months. [your father’s] Help make it work. Let’s talk about it. It makes perfect sense to me. ” Meanwhile, Uncle Jim’s message is likely to be “keep calm and carry on.”
