President Joe Biden could become further involved in his son’s scandals as an FBI probe has revealed that he and his son Hunter shared a bank account and paid each other’s bills, the Daily Mail reported.
“Emails from Hunter’s laptop between Hunter and Eric Schwerin, his business partner at consultancy Rosemont Seneca, show Schwerin was working on Joe’s taxes, discussing the father and son paying each other’s household bills and even fielding requests for a book deal for the then-vice president, as well as managing the donation of Joe’s senate papers to the University of Delaware,” it said.
It is not clear why Schwerin was handling such delicate business affairs for the Biden’s.
The Bidens’ shared bank account raises many questions—especially considering Hunter’s revealed degeneracy—but this point it is unclear if the FBI probe will target the president.
“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],” said an ex-prosecutor and expert on money laundering and criminal tax law told DailyMail.com.
“Obviously, if you’re talking about the President of the United States, you’d better have a pretty good reason to talk to that person.”
The FBI and IRS are also looking into Hunter’s foreign business relationships for potential money laundering.
Concerns were raised by the Senate security committee last year surrounding Hunter’s business dealings with China.
The committee feared that the Chinese government was trying to gain access and influence in the White House through a billion-dollar business deal with Hunter’s company. Hunter’s company was co-founded with Schwerin, Rosmont Seneca and CEFC, a Chinese oil company.
Former U.S. Intelligence Officer John Cassara, said that if Joe Biden were not president, both he and his son would probably be in hot water by now.
“The information available publicly is very worrisome, particularly in the areas of corruption,” Cassara said.
“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,” Cassara continued. “It undermines trust and our international reputation. It’s an embarrassment.”
