Laptop Emails Link Hunter Biden to Russian Oligarch Raided by FBI

'Impeachment alone will not end our national calamity...'

Hunter Biden tried to get the industrial giant Alcoa to pay him $25,000-$55,000 for information about Russian oligarch Oleg Deripaska, who was the subject of an FBI raid earlier this week, said the New York Post‘s Miranda Devine.

“The president’s son said he could provide Alcoa, a giant US aluminum firm, with knowledge about the ‘elite networks’ connected to Oleg Deripaska in a proposal from his company Rosemont Seneca, emails on Hunter’s laptop show,” wrote Devine.

FBI agents this week raided a house occupied by Deripaska in the Embassy Row section of Washington, DC, in what they agency described as a “law enforcement activity.”

“The searches are being carried out on the basis of two court orders, connected to U.S. sanctions,” a spokeswoman for Deripaska said according to NBC News. “The houses do not belong to Mr. Deripaska.”

Deripaska was sanctioned by the U.S. Treasury Department, citing a “range of malign activity” over the world.

“Deripaska has been investigated for money laundering and has been accused of threatening the lives of business rivals, illegally wiretapping a government official, and taking part in extortion and racketeering,” said the Treasury Department in a press release. “There are also allegations that Deripaska bribed a government official, ordered the murder of a businessman, and had links to a Russian organized crime group.”

The Hunter Biden emails were written in June 2011 according to the New York Post.

The appearance of influence peddling is just the latest takedown of the Biden family‘s rapacity. Among the scandals already documented are deals with China and Ukraine, both of which have strong implications for American national security and foreign policy.

Last month the uber-liberal Atlantic, denounced such influence peddling amongst politicians and their families as “perfectly legal, socially acceptable, corruption.”

“How did we convince ourselves it was not corruption?” asked Atlantic writer Sarah Chayes.

“Impeachment alone will not end our national calamity,” she continued. “If we want to help our country heal, we must start holding ourselves, our friends, and our allies—and not just our enemies—to its highest standards.”
