CROOKED JOE: 15 Times ‘The Big Guy’ Met With Hunter’s Business Partners — Here’s The List

Joe Biden has been lying about not knowing a thing about his son Hunter’s business dealings for years, and the Regime Media is letting him get away with it.

It’s getting harder to deny it, though.

Kanekoa The Great posted a list of meetings that would be pretty weird if “The Big Guy” was telling the truth about not knowing a thing about Hunter’s business dealings.

🚨Vice President Joe Biden meeting Hunter Biden’s foreign business partners.
November 2010: Joe Biden had a sit-down meeting with Eric Schwerin – the president of Hunter’s private equity firm – in the West Wing.

April 2014: Joe Biden met with Devon Archer — another co-founder of Hunter’s private equity firm — in the White House a week before Archer joined the board of Burisma.

May 2017: Joe Biden met with family business partner Tony Bobulinski TWICE.
June 2018: Joe Biden texted Hunter saying that he was with Jeff Cooper — a family business partner — and that Cooper wanted to “do some work” with him.
Photos, emails, text messages, and White House visitor logs CONFIRM these meetings took place. It’s not up for debate.
o why did Joe Biden lie?

Let’s go through the list.

1. Eric Schwerin — November 2010

Schwerin was the President of Hunter’s now-defunct investment firm, Rosemont Seneca, and is described as Hunter’s “closest business partner.” Schwerin made 19 visits to the White House between 2009 and 2015, while “The Big Guy” was Vice President.

Schwerin met with the then-Vice President’s staffers at the White House, and was a “regular guest” at the official VP residence at the U.S. Naval Observatory.

According to White House visitor logs, in November 2010, Schwerin met with “The Big Guy” himself in the West Wing.

Visitor logs from the White House of former President Barack Obama reviewed by The Post cast further doubt over Joe Biden’s claims that he knew nothing of his son’s dealings.
Eric Schwerin met with Vice President Biden on November 17, 2010 in the West Wing, when he was the president of the since-dissolved investment fund Rosemont Seneca Partners.
The logs also reveal that Schwerin met with various close aides of both Joe and Jill Biden at key moments in Hunter’s life when he was striking multi-million dollar deals in foreign countries, including China. Yet President Biden has long insisted he had no involvement in his son’s foreign affairs. “I have never spoken to my son about his overseas business dealings,” he said in 2019.

2. Chris Heinz — November 2011

Chris Heinz, the stepson of former Secretary of State John Kerry, co-founded Rosemont Seneca with Hunter Biden back in 2009 along with a third partner,  Devon Archer. (See below.)

Heinz, Biden, and Archer created a network of LLCs built on the foundation of Rosemont Capital, the alternative investment fund of the Heinz Family Office.

Of the various deals in which these Rosemont entities were involved, one of the largest and most troubling concerns was Rosemont Seneca Partners.
Rather than set up shop in New York City, the financial capital of the world, Rosemont Seneca leased space in Washington, DC. They occupied an all-brick building on Wisconsin Avenue, the main thoroughfare of exclusive Georgetown. Their offices would be less than a mile from John and Teresa Kerry’s 23-room Georgetown mansion, and just two miles from both Joe Biden’s office in the White House and his residence at the Naval Observatory.
Over the next seven years, as both Joe Biden and John Kerry negotiated sensitive and high-stakes deals with foreign governments, Rosemont entities secured a series of exclusive deals often with those same foreign governments.
Some of the deals they secured may remain hidden. These Rosemont entities are, after all, within a private equity firm and as such are not required to report or disclose their financial dealings publicly.
Some of their transactions are nevertheless traceable by investigating world capital markets. A troubling pattern emerges from this research, showing how profitable deals were struck with foreign governments on the heels of crucial diplomatic missions carried out by their powerful fathers. Often those foreign entities gained favorable policy actions from the United States government just as the sons were securing favorable financial deals from those same entities.

Heinz ended the business relationship with both Biden and Archer in 2014 because of their seats on the board of the Ukrainian gas company, Burisma. Heinz thought taking tens of thousands from a gas company in a country known for corruption was a bad look.

That same year, Ukrainian prosecutors opened up a criminal investigation into Burisma for tax violations.

3. Andres Pastrana Arango — March 2012

Hunter’s Laptop From Hell never fails.

Neither do the stalwart reporters at the New York Post.

A March 2, 2012 entry notes a meeting with Joe Biden and Andrés Pastrana Arango, the former president of Colombia, whose business Hunter had been courting for months, emails on the laptop show.
For more than a year before the meeting with Joe Biden and Pastrana, Hunter and his Rosemont Seneca business partners had been chasing the business of OAS, a Brazilian construction company with Colombian interests which was later busted for paying bribes and rigging public contracts.
In a Feb. 7, 2011 email to Hunter Biden, his partner Mike Muldoon said a third member of the company would pitch OAS on a “20K/month fee … in order to participate” and a 5% success fee.

4. Jonathan Li — December 2013

Jonathan Li is the CEO of the Chinese investment firm BHR Partners and in 2013 established a subsidiary — Bohai Harvest RST (Shanghai) Equity Investment Fund Management Co., known as BHR.

After Hunter’s fateful meeting with Li in 2014 when he traveled with his dad to China, Hunter went into business with Li. Hunter held a 10% equity stake through Skaneateles LLC. He kept his stake in BHR despite his dad’s promise to the American people in 2019 when he was running to become the Democrat Nominee.

“No one in my family will have an office in the White House, will sit in on meetings as if they are a cabinet member, will, in fact, have any business relationship with anyone that relates to a foreign corporation or a foreign country,” Joe Biden told reporters in Iowa. “Period. Period. End of story.”

Hunter Biden continues to hold a minority stake in a Chinese private equity firm 100 days into President Joe Biden’s term, business records show.
Hunter Biden holds a 10% equity stake in BHR Partners through his company, Skaneateles LLC, according to Qixinbao and Baidu, two independent services that provide business records on Chinese corporations based on China’s National Credit Information Publicity System.

Li must be a helluva guy, because Joe also wrote college recommendation letters for Li’s two children to help with their applications to Ivy League universities.

5. Carlos Slim and Miguel Alemán Velasco — February 2014

Hunter’s Mexican Business partners got a nice visit to the White House.

Joe Biden entertained his son’s business associates in the vice president’s office, including Mexican billionaires Carlos Slim and Miguel Alemán Velasco…
…The revelations, laid bare in photographs and emails on Hunter’s abandoned laptop, are the latest in a growing body of evidence calling into question the president’s claim that he never spoke about business with Hunter.

6. Devon Archer — April 2014

Devon Archer, Hunter’s former Rosemont Seneca business partner, met with Joe at the White House shortly before Archer joined the Burisma board with Hunter.

Archer is scheduled to testify in front of the House Oversight Committee next week about Hunter’s business dealings and Joe’s connection to them.

7. Miguel Estrella — February 2014

Hunter was quite keen to do business with Manuel Estrella, owner of construction consortium Grupo Estrella and listed by Forbes as one of the top 20 richest entrepreneurs in the Dominican Republic.

In 2010, Estrella had expressed interest in building a new hotel in Haiti bringing on Rosemont Seneca as an equity partner and the “Clinton-Bush Haiti Fund” as a potential investor. Nothing came of it, but Hunter kept hustlin’.

In an email in December 2012, Hunter introduced Estrella to Cooper as “a good friend of mine” and “the perfect partner as you explore bringing online gaming to the Dominican Republic.”
Two years later, Hunter would arrange for Estrella to meet Joe Biden. “Hunter I just met your father!” Estrella emailed Hunter on June 19, 2014. “So exciting.”
[Gabriel Zinny of the Democratic lobbying firm Blue Star Strategies] followed up with his own email to Hunter: “Thank you so much Boss! Just talked to Manuel [Estrella] who was really excited. You are too generous with your latinos fans!!”

8. Devon Archer — August 2014

9. Vadym Pozharksyi, Yelena Baturina, Yury Luzhkoy, Nursultan Nazarbayev, and Kenes Rakishev — April 2015

A dinner at the exclusive Café Milano in 2015 included Hunter, Joe, Pozharskyi, who was an executive of Burisma, Luzhkoy the corrupt former Mayor of Moscow and his wife Baturina had wired $3.5 million to Hunter.

The dinner, on April 16, 2015, was held in the private “Garden Room” at Café Milano, a Georgetown institution whose catchphrase is: “Where the world’s most powerful people go.”
The next day, Hunter received an email from Vadym Pozharskyi, an executive of the Ukrainian energy company Burisma, to thank him for introducing him to his father.
“Dear Hunter, thank you for inviting me to DC and giving an opportunity to meet your father and spent [sic] some time together,” Pozharskyi wrote on April 17, 2015…
…The guest list prepared by Hunter three weeks before the Café Milano dinner included Russian billionaire Yelena Baturina and her husband, corrupt former Moscow mayor Yury Luzhkov, who since has died. Baturina wired $3.5 million on Feb. 14, 2014, to Rosemont Seneca Thornton LLC, a Delaware-based investment firm co-founded by Hunter and Devon Archer, a former adviser to Secretary of State John Kerry.

In addition, three seats were reserved for “for our KZ [Kazakhstan] friends” according to an email from Hunter to business partner, Devon Archer. Presumably, two of the seats were for Kazakhstani oligarch Kenes Rakishev and former Kazakhstan President Nursultan Nazarbayev, who Joe and Hunter were photographed with.

10. Carlos Slim, Miguel Aleman Velasco, and Miguel Aleman Magnani — November 2015

Hunter’s business partners in Mexico met with Joe at the Vice President’s residence in 2015.

Among more than 100 events scheduled in Hunter’s diary at the VP’s residence at the Naval Observatory in Washington, DC, there are meetings which appear to overlap with Hunter’s business interests.
“Breakfast with Dad — NavObs” is one such meeting recorded for 8:30 a.m. on Nov. 19, 2015. Five photographs date-stamped on that day and taken at 10:03 a.m. and 10:04 a.m. appear on the laptop, showing Joe posing with four of Hunter’s business associates, including Mexican billionaires Carlos Slim and Miguel Alemán Velasco.

There’s even a photo of Joe, Hunter, Slim, Velasco, Magnani, and… Jeff Cooper.

Speaking of…

11. Jeff Cooper — February 2016

Jeff Cooper, who was partnered with Hunter in deals south of the border snagged a sweet trip to Mexico aboard Air Force 2 in 2016.

The then-vice president also flew Hunter and his partner Jeff Cooper on Air Force 2 to Mexico City in 2016 where Hunter arranged to meet Alemán’s son for meetings over a ‘flippin gigantic’ business deal.

12. Eric Schwerin — May 2016

Schwerin was such a frequent visitor to the White House while Joe was Veep, he should’ve asked for one of those stamp cards to get a free gift from the White House gift shop.

Hunter Biden’s longtime business partner Eric Schwerin visited the White House at least eight times in 2016, meeting with then-Vice President Biden’s chief of staff Steve Ricchetti, who currently serves as Biden’s White House counselor, and an assistant in Biden’s office who used to work at the investment firm Schwerin and Hunter managed.
Those eight additional visits, in addition to 19 previously known Schwerin visits, bring his total number of White House visits during the Obama-Biden administration to 27.

13. Francis Person — September 2016

In 2016, Francis “Franny” Person, a close aide to Joe, and another of Hunter’s business partners ran for South Carolina’s 5th Congressional District seat. Joe attended a fundraiser for “Franny” in his failed bid to unseat incumbent, Mick Mulvaney.

But that’s not all… “Franny” was apparently a frequent guest at the White House between 2015 and 2016 while he was in business with Chinese executive, Bo Zhang.

One of Joe Biden’s closest aides as vice president, who later joined a Washington-based firm founded by an executive with ties to China’s Communist Party and did deals with Biden’s son Hunter — visited the White House at least seven times over a two-year period.
Francis Person — better known as “Franny” to the Biden family, whom Jill Biden has said is “like a son” to her and Joe — visited the White House multiple times in 2015 and 2016, including a holiday reception in December 2015 with Chinese executive Bo Zhang, official logs viewed by The Post show.
Person, who left his role as then-Vice President Biden’s personal aide in 2014, went on to work with Hunter Biden and his business partner Eric Schwerin in deals with the Harves Group and later became president of the Washington-based firm.

14. Tony Bobulinski — May 2017

We have heard Bobulinski say in his own words that he met with “The Big Guy” because of his business dealings with Hunter.

15. Jeff Cooper — June 2018

Hunter’s Laptop From Hell shows a text message from Joe to Hunter in 2018 saying that Jeff Cooper had contacted him and indicated that he “do some work” with him.

It’s all been documented. We know this is true.

And that’s just what we know about.

The Biden Administration isn’t keeping records of who has been visiting Joe at his Rehoboth Beach vacation home since he became President.

It’s time for Joe to come clean and be held accountable.
