(Mark Pellin, Headline USA) In the latest twisted knot tying President Joe Biden to his son’s shady dealings and improprieties, a former business partner of Hunter Biden made at least 19 visits to the White House, including a meeting with then-Vice President Biden in the Oval Office.
The revelation further weakens Biden’s repeated claims that he knew nothing of his son’s business dealings, according to the New York Post, which reported the White House visits.
Eric Schwerin, who co-founded Rosemont Seneca with Hunter Biden and was integral in helping land suspect deals with China, met with Biden in the Oval Office and held several meetings with close aides of both Joe and Jill Biden, according to visitor logs from the White House.
”Not everyone gets to meet the Vice President of the United States in the White House. The press should be asking why Hunter Biden’s business associates — like Eric Schwerin — had that privilege and were given access to the Obama White House,” said Wisconsin Republican Sen. Ron Johnson.
“This is additional evidence that Joe Biden lied when he said he never discussed Hunter’s foreign business dealings. It’s well past time for the corporate media to demand the truth from Joe Biden.
“The corruption of Biden Inc. must be exposed,” Johnson said.
The latest revelations come in the wake of disclosures that Hunter Biden used his father’s ties to receive massive donations from one of China’s richest businessmen to an alleged world food program that Hunter led and evolved into business deals with the Chinese energy giant CEFC.
While Biden was vice president, Hunter Biden and former business partner Devon Archer negotiated a deal with CEFC that would have China’s regime-connected energy giant paying Hunter Biden and his associates $10 million per year for “introductions alone,” according to one email sent by Hunter Biden to CEFC associates.

Archer, currently trying to use his Biden connections as he awaits sentencing for securities fraud, and Chris Heinz — two other Rosemont Seneca founders — were at the White House in 2009 and 2011 for a “holiday reception” and “group tour” respectively, the Post reported.
Subsequent to those visits with then-Vice President Biden’s inner circle, Biden flew to China and held several high level meetings with top leaders there including future Chinese President Xi Jinping, according to the Post. Days later, Schwerin was in a meeting in the West Wing with Kellen Suber, the Veep’s executive assistant.
Two years later, Hunter Biden entered into an agreement with Chinese businessman Jonathan Li to create BHR Partners. Schwerin met with Joe Biden aides in March and May of that same year, according to the Post.
“It’s increasingly obvious that Hunter Biden’s business revolved around providing access to his father and the highest levers of power. It reeks of pay-to-play,” Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, told the Post.
“The clear solution is a Special Counsel investigation to fairly investigate the disturbing allegations of Biden family corruption,” Cruz said.
The Biden administration floundered miserably in its attempt to explain the White House visitor logs, which clearly appear to contradict Biden’s unwavering insistence that he never had any knowledge of Hunter’s dubious business dealings.
Jen Psaki says she has “no information” about White House visitor logs showing Hunter Biden’s business partner visited **19 TIMES** while Joe Biden was vice president.
