Schwerin, the president of Hunter Biden’s shuttered investment firm, met with then-President Joe Biden in the White House.
He made at least 19 visits to official locations between 2009 and 2015, including a personal meeting with Biden.
Schwerin met with Vice President Biden on November 17th, 2010 when he was the president of Rosemont Seneca Partners, casting further doubt on the White House’s claim that Joe Biden knew nothing of his son Hunter’s business dealings.
The logs, reviewed by the New York Post, also show that Schwerin met with close aides of both Joe and Jill during key moments of Hunter’s business life, such as while he was negotiating multi-million dollar deals in China.
”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 Senator Ron Johnson (R-WI). “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.”
In one particularly telling example from 2010, Evan Ryan, Vice President Biden’s assistant for intergovernmental affairs and public liaison, received an email advocating for International Union of Painters and Allied Trades lawyer Craig Becker to be nominated to the National Labor Relations Board. The email specifically asked that Vice President Biden push Obama on the issue. Hunter was CC’d on that email.
Obama named Becker to the job via a recess appointment the next month despite protest from Republicans at the time.
“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,” Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) told The Post.
