Hunter told ex-partner to buy burner phone 3 days before meeting with dad at White House

The congressional testimony of Hunter Biden’s business partner cast new light on the contents of the infamous laptop that included a time-sensitive instruction to buy a burner phone.

Corporate media’s downplay of Devon Archer’s hearing Monday regarding then-Vice President Joe Biden’s inclusion on his son’s business calls in favor of former President Donald Trump’s new indictment hasn’t made the claims any less significant. In fact, a look at one email from days before Archer met with Biden at the White House has compounded suspicion.

A report from the Daily Mail featured an email from Hunter to Archer dated April 13, 2014, three days prior to the co-founder of Rosemont Seneca and then-fellow board member of Burisma meeting with the vice president.

A screengrab shared by Bo Snerdley’s the Daily BS, highlighted the pertinent detail where Archer was told “Buy a cell phone from a 7/11 or CVS [tomorrow] and [I’ll] do the same,” leading to the comment “Who buys a burner phone? Hunter ‘kept 13 phone numbers active on his AT&T account…'”

The report followed Archer’s testimony before the House Oversight Committee where he alleged that the elder Biden had been asked to speak on “approximately 20 occasions” for his son’s telephone business meetings, a point New York Rep. Dan Goldman (D) had tried to suggest were for “niceties” to say “hello” and talk “about the weather or whatever it was.”

However, previous reports have suggested a lengthy record of suspicious phone activity connected to Hunter’s business deals, including the possibility that the president himself had been footing the bill for a period of time.

A January 2019 email from Hunter’s assistant Katie Dodge had been sent to book-keeper Linda Shapero, Biden aide Richard Ruffner and the younger Biden that said in part, “I spoke with Hunter today regarding his bills. It is my understanding that Hunt’s dad will cover these bills in the short-term as Hunter transitions in his career. I have a list of the current bills of which I am aware. I have attached the list below…”

Included in the rundown of nearly $740,000 worth of bills were Hunter’s phone lines of which there were a reported 13 active phone numbers through his AT&T account amounting to $1,200 in payments per month at the time. Three of those numbers were attributed to Hunter’s daughters.

Previously, it had also been reported that Government Accountability Institute head Peter Schweizer had drawn Congress’ attention to a non-government issued “global phone” that had been used by the then-vice president that was included with the AT&T account.

“What is the line of communications between Hunter Biden and his business partners and Joe Biden when he’s vice president of the United States?” Schweizer had asked on Fox News. “It’s not the government phone. It’s not Joe Biden’s personal phone. We know from the laptop that Hunter Biden’s business paid for a private phone line that Joe Biden used while he was vice president.”

It was unknown whether or not the House Oversight Committee had used that information to subpoena those records. What was known, according to the Mail’s report on the contents of the laptop, was that one of the numbers had changed hands between Hunter and his father between July 2011 and June 2018.

Additionally, prior to 2019, Hunter had downloaded sixteen different private messaging apps including Chinese WeChat, Wickr and Signal.

The email instructing Archer to purchase a burner phone also detailed disruptions in Europe at the time and how Burisma stood to capitalize. “This,” Hunter wrote, “could be the break we have been waiting for if they are smart enough to understand our long term value.”
