The gift that keeps on giving, Hunter Biden’s laptop has revealed the scandal-ridden son, often accompanied by business partners, visited his VP dad at the White House and the Naval Observatory, the vice-president’s residence, at least 30 times, despite President Biden’s repeated insistence that he knew nothing of Hunter’s questionable business dealings.
According to the New York Post, the dozens of “breakfasts, lunches and other gabfests” took place between 2008 and 2016 and were documented on the infamous laptop’s personal calendar.
“Often,” reports The Post, the meetings were scheduled “just days after” Hunter’s return from overseas business trips.
Notably, one person appears as a confirmed invite recipient to get-togethers with father and son on 21 of the 30 scheduled meetings: Eric Schwerin, president of Rosemont Seneca Partners, Hunter Biden’s investment company.
“Schwerin was a longtime Hunter Biden business confidante, and had access to the elder Biden’s personal financial information,” according to The Post.

For House GOP Conference Chair Elise Stefanik, this is just more proof of the President’s dishonesty.
“Hardly a day goes by without another revelation about how intimately involved Joe Biden was with his son Hunter Biden’s corrupt foreign business dealings,” she said. “The fact that Joe was in meetings with senior foreign leaders on behalf of Hunter and his business associates while Vice President further proves that Joe has been lying to the American people.”
At times, mere minutes would pass between the younger Biden’s meeting with a high-profile figure and a meet-up with the Vice President.
The personal calendar shows Hunter Biden meeting with the Prime Minister of Côte d’Ivoire, Daniel Kablan Duncan, in D.C. at 8:15 a.m. on April 15, 2016.
Just 45-minutes later, Hunter had scheduled a quick meet-up with his father at the Naval Observatory.
And after being “wined and dined by billionaire oligarchs in Moscow” between Feb. 15-19, The Post reported, Hunter Biden was back at the Naval Observatory four days after returning home.
By the way, one of those oligarchs is now wanted for murder.

And the list goes on.
Two days after returning from business meetings in Romania, Hunter enjoyed breakfast with the Big Guy. Prior to leaving for Romania, Hunter had met with the Romanian ambassador to the United States. Months after his return, Hunter and former FBI Director Louis French partnered up to help keep Romanian businessman Gabriel Popoviciu out of jail.
“In another meeting with royalty,” the paper wrote, “the crown prince of Yugoslavia told The Post he was hoping Hunter could put in a good word to his dad about possible help rehabbing their royal palace in Belgrade.”
And then there’s the Col0mbian meetings.
Between emails and calendar entries, the laptop reveals Hunter and Rosemont Seneca were aggressively courting the business of OAS, which The Post describes as “a Brazilian construction company with Colombian interests which was later busted for paying bribes and rigging public contracts.”
Rosemont Seneca pitched OAS on $20K fee per month and a 5% success fee, and by July 2011, Schwerin emailed Hunter with a “list of projects OAS is interested in in Colombia.”
“Among the projects were two wastewater treatment plants estimated to $380 million and $350 million,” The Post reported. “There was also a $1.8 billion hydroelectric power plant, and a $3 billion upgrade to the Bogota subway system.”
In August 2011, Schwerin emailed Hunter to say, “If it works, we’ll all be rich.”

And it did work.
Emails show that contracts were signed in September.
Potential bonuses from OAS could be had, wrote Schwerin, if the Colombian deals came to fruition.
“Schwerin estimated their share of a 1% ‘success fee’ on a potential billion dollar project would be $5.6 million,” according to The Post.
By the start of November 2011, Hunter was in Bogota, having dinner with the former President of Colombia, Andrés Pastrana Arango, and possibly Mauricio Cárdenas Santamaría, the country’s minister for mines and energy. On the same day, the calendar shows that Hunter met up with Catalina Crane Arango, a counselor to the nation’s president, Juan Manuel Santos.
By February 2012, Hunter Biden was arranging a meeting between Pastrana, Schwerin, and Joe Biden at the Naval Observatory. Later that day, Hunter met Pastrana and Colombian Coffee Federation Inc. President Juan Esteban Orduz for lunch.
According to the calendar, Hunter Biden also arranged meetings between Pastrana,Nigerian businessman Kase Lukman Lawal, and OAS international chairman Cesar Uzeda.

That Pastrana and Joe Biden have, for a long time, had a relationship is well known. Pastrana tweeted a photo of himself with the elder Biden and Sen. Jesse Helms (R-N.C.) to congratulate Biden on winning the 2020 presidential election.
“My father has a friendship with President Biden as they worked together for Plan Colombia when my ather was President of Colombia and Biden Senator and chair of the Foreign Relation Committee,” said Pastrano’s son, Santiago Pastrana, who, along with his father and Hunter met with Joe Biden in May 2012.
“The conversation was around the gratitude my father had for then VP Biden and all his support towards Colombia,” Santiago Pastrana said.
“The Colombian infrastructure projects were eventually built but it is unclear if OAS won any related contracts,” The Post reports.
Also unclear is whether or not “Hunter Biden and his business partners pocketed ‘success’ bonuses.”
