According to the Daily Wire, President Joe Biden sent his son multiple payments totaling around $100,000 in December 2018 and January 2019.
The Washington Examiner, which spearheaded the investigation into the finances, did not find any evidence that the elder Biden knew about his son’s spending habits. However, some messages suggested that Hunter misled his father about his spending.
After publishing the results of their investigation, Hunter reportedly emailed a Washington Examiner reporter, asking: “What is wrong with you?”
Hunter did not respond to a request for comment from the Examiner before the article was published, along with his attorneys and the White House.
Backed-up files from Hunter Biden’s iPhone, which were found on his computer, showed a number of messages to someone identified as “Eva.”
Eva is affiliated with a Russian escort service called UberGFE, which does business in both Russia and the United States.
The messages show Biden negotiated pricing for the cost of keeping an escort for 16 hours, with the price coming out to $9,500.
Joe Biden’s then-assistant Richard Ruffner sent Hunter $5,000 from Joe’s account, later texting Hunter that that was all that could be sent “because the weekly limit is $7,500.”
In another transfer, Joe Biden sent his son $20,000 to pay for Hunter to stay in a New York City rehab clinic.
Hunter told his dad he was checking into the facility, but no documentation that he had ever checked in was found. Hunter was also struggling with debts totaling more than $800,000 at the time.
“‘We can all sympathize with Biden’s love for his troubled son while recognizing that he was shoveling prodigious sums of money to Hunter Biden when the neon lights were flashing that Hunter was compromised and using the money to become ever more compromised—and with Russia, of all places,’” former federal prosecutor Andrew McCarthy told the Examiner.
Continuing, McCarthy addressed the situation the Biden administration has created.
“The context here is that Democrats put the country through two years of anxiety on the false, Democrat-fabricated claim that Biden’s predecessor was an agent of the Kremlin,” McCarthy said.
“And of course, when compelling evidence arose that Biden is actually entangled in his son’s foreign business dealings, despite having denied even discussing them, Biden apologists responded with their standard deceptive deflection—it’s all Russian disinformation.”
