Biden's Associates, Family Thread Business Involvements: Politico Unveils

 June 9, 2024

A recent Politico report has highlighted the intersecting business endeavors involving President Joe Biden's family and closest advisors.

Fox News reported that the details show a complex network of personal and professional intersections despite claims of clear boundaries between the President’s governmental duties and family business operations.

A notable example includes President Biden and his son, Hunter Biden, sharing a personal bookkeeper, reflecting a shared financial management approach. Additionally, Jim Biden, the President's brother, has retained the legal services of the President's long-time personal lawyer.

Long-standing Associations and the Biden Family

Jim Biden’s business relationships trace back several decades, utilizing connections linked to his brother. In 1975, he acquired a loan to bolster his nightclub business, showcasing an early instance of leveraging these familial ties.

Jim Biden hired Dale Pupillo, a former lead of Vice President Biden’s Secret Service detail, 2017 to vet a Chinese business executive ahead of a pivotal meeting planned with Hunter Biden, revealing further connections.

Business Ventures Stretching Into China

Previously a close aide to President Biden, Fran Person was involved alongside Hunter Biden in a prospective deal involving SeaHelper and the state-owned Chinese Development Bank in 2015. These discussions envisioned potential business expansions in China, including SeaWorld parks.

Mel Monzack's legal partnership with Joe Biden also extended to Jim Biden, particularly in the troubled venture involving the Americore hospital chain. This exemplifies the intertwined professional roles persisting over the years.

Below is a statement from Jim Biden during the recent impeachment inquiry regarding his connections and knowledge of the family businesses:

"I wanted to know who I was meeting with and if there were any complications at all. I don’t have the full depth of what he does or doesn’t do. But I know that he’s intricately involved and has been, you know, for the last 40 or 50 years."

Financial Management and Oversight

Further blurring the lines, Eric Schwerin, another business associate of Hunter Biden, managed finances for Hunter and Joe Biden. Despite his management role, Schwerin stated in an impeachment inquiry that there was no financial intermingling between Joe and Hunter Biden.

The medical sector also saw potential deals involving the Biden name. Jim Biden consulted Dr. Kevin O’Connor, who served as Joe Biden's physician during his vice presidency, regarding a veteran’s treatment venture, although it did not materialize. Meanwhile, Hunter Biden has recently attended court for his tax matters, underlining the ongoing scrutiny on the family's financial engagements.

Legal and Political Repercussions

This interplay between the Biden family's business dealings and public service roles has fueled ongoing investigations and discussions in political circles. The complexity of these relationships raises questions about the adequacy of the supposed firewalls previously claimed by the Biden administration.

Conclusively, the intricate ties revealed by the Politico report suggest a blending of President Biden’s familial, legal, and business engagements. Long-standing business connections, overlapping legal and financial services, and collaborative business ventures with foreign entities sketch a network of interactions often contradicting the professed separation between personal and official spheres.
