Hunter Biden’s business dealings continue to splash his father, President Joe Biden, who met repeatedly with one of Hunter’s top associates for six years while he was vice president, according to a recent report.
According to the New York Post, Eric Schwerin—former chairman of the investment fund Rosemont Seneca Partners, co-founded by Hunter Biden in 2009—met as many as 19 times with Joe Biden between 2009 and 2015 at the White House, other official sites, and also the West Wing, where the president’s offices are housed.
The meetings call into question now-President Biden’s claim that he had no idea about his son’s business dealings. “I have never spoken to my son about his overseas business dealings,” he said in 2019, when Hunter’s reputation was hurting his presidential bid.
The Post pulled the information from the Obama administration’s official visitor logs. According to the media outlet, “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.”
According to the report, Eric Schwerin worked closely with both Hunter (on lucrative and business matters) and Joe Biden, whom he advised fiscally (personal taxes) according to emails found on Hunter Biden’s missing computer in Delaware.

The Post obtained testimony from Margaret Campbell, a former special assistant to Jill Biden, who confirmed that Eric Schwerin “did financial stuff for the family,” but did not know more details. Campbell also said that “it would make sense if he stopped into the White House,” referring to Schwerin’s visits to the then-vice president.
The New York tabloid also revealed that Schwerin “was a regular guest at the Vice President’s Residence at the United States Naval Observatory where he attended holiday parties and an inaugural reception in 2013.”
The report was written by Jon Levine and Miranda Levine, journalists who have closely followed the laptop case and Hunter Biden’s controversial business dealings since the first exclusive in the weeks leading up to the 2020 presidential election that pitted Donald Trump and Joe Biden against each other.
Liberal media ignores Hunter Biden’s associate’s visits to his father
After the New York Post broke the story about Schwerin and his relationship with Joe Biden, only conservative media and Republican politicians reacted to the news by recalling that the president’s son is under a federal investigation that could involve his foreign business dealings and his own father.
Initially, the investigation against Hunter was only related to his tax returns, however, inside sources have said that the investigation was expanded to look into schemes that include money laundering and lobbying violations.
Ronna McDaniel, chairman of the Republican National Committee, tweeted the Post’s news on Twitter. “Hunter’s business partner Eric Schwerin visited the White House at least 19 times under Obama. He even met with then-VP Joe Biden in the West Wing.”
Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), told the New York Post that “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. The clear solution is a Special Counsel investigation to fairly investigate the disturbing allegations of Biden family corruption.”
House Republicans have vowed that, if they win a majority in the midterms, they will investigate Hunter Biden’s business dealings.
Conservative media such as Fox News, Daily Caller or the Daily Mail echoed the Post’s report on Schwerin’s visits to the White House during the Obama era, amplifying doubts about Joe Biden’s relationship with his son’s businesses.
In contrast, most of the liberal press and national media ignored the Post report. In fact, one of the few “non-conservative” media outlets to cover the story published by the New York tabloid was Newsweek magazine, which took a particular approach to its coverage, limiting itself to exposing Republican backlash against Hunter Biden to push for an investigation.
White House press secretary Jen Psaki dodged questions about the Post report by arguing that she had no additional information about the Hunter case and his laptop. “I don’t have any information on that. I’m happy to check and see if we have any more comment,” she said Monday, 25.
Joe Biden, in addition to Schwerin’s visits, has been linked to a controversial email discussing a “Big Guy” and an economic division related to the Oneida Holdings firm that includes several people: Hunter Biden, his uncle Jim Biden and his business partners Rob Walker, James Gilliar and Tony Bobulinski.
The latter partner, Bobulinski, told Tucker Carlson that the “Big Guy” is Joe Biden. Which would mean that the now President of the United States lied about his son’s business dealings and his relationship with them.
