In one of our friend Frank Gaffney's recent Secure Freedom Minutes Mr. Gaffney asked an
essential question that none of the big name establishment media national security reporters want to touch: Did Hunter sell Joe’s classified documents?
As Mr. Gaffney explained:
Former Vice President Mike Pence is the latest politician found to have classified documents in his home, fueling a renewed effort to downplay the significance of Joe Biden’s mishandling of such materials. What contradicts the spinning is fresh, if circumstantial, evidence that the President’s son, Hunter, shared a secret State Department paper to get hired by a Ukrainian oligarch.
New York Post columnist Miranda Devine discovered on Hunter’s notorious laptop an email he sent his prospective employer. It contained an apparent official analysis of U.S. policy options for possible sanctions against Ukraine.
Congressional investigators will need to explore whether Joe Biden not only illegally retained and stored such a classified document, but shared it with his son to advance their family’s pay-to-play influence operations. And even more concerning: Was other, highly sensitive information shared with Hunter’s friends in Chinese intelligence?
And Miranda Devine presented a really compelling case that the answer to the question, “Did Hunter sell Joe’s secrets” is YES.
Too much evidence has emerged from Hunter’s laptop, from Hunter’s former business partners, from the “Twitter files” and from FBI whistleblowers alleging a cover-up of staggering proportions, concluded Ms. Devine.
The first tranche of at least 10 classified documents reportedly was found in the fall at the Penn Biden Center for Diplomacy and Global Engagement at the University of Pennsylvania, and were kept secret by the White House until after the midterm elections. They were dated between 2013 and 2016 and included US intelligence memos and briefing materials on Ukraine, Iran and the United Kingdom, according to CNN.
This is the thread that links the president to the long-running Delaware federal investigation into his son’s foreign business dealings:
That three-year period corresponds to the most frenetic influence-peddling activity overseas by his son Hunter and brother Jim Biden, who made millions of dollars from shady interests in Ukraine, China, Russia and elsewhere.
How much more valuable their product would be if they had access to classified documents?
Their activity is documented in the Hunter laptop, in financial documents held by the Treasury, and in testimony from Hunter’s former business partner Tony Bobulinski, who said Joe was the “big guy” slated to get 10% from a particularly lucrative Chinese deal.
Hunter traveled on Air Force 2 with his father to do private business during that period, including to China in December 2013. He organized the infamous Cafe Milano dinner for Joe to meet his business partners from Ukraine, Russia and Kazakhstan in April 2015.
After his separation from his wife in July 2015, Hunter lived off and on at his father’s Delaware mansion and listed it as his residence on official documents. He was photographed in 2017 driving his father’s Corvette, which was housed in the very garage where classified documents have been found.
Hunter also had free rein in his dad’s White House office, and his privileged access meant his name never showed up on visitor logs. For instance, he took the infamous photo of his then-“best friend in business,” Devon Archer, with his father in the VP’s office in April 2014, shortly before the pair joined the board of the corrupt Ukrainian oil company Burisma, which paid Hunter $83,000 a month. That photo ended up briefly on the Burisma website before being taken down on the instructions of a White House lawyer.
One striking email during this period stands out. It was from Hunter to Archer on April 13, 2014, a week before Joe Biden visited Ukraine to meet then-Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk and refers to “my guys upcoming travels.”
For Hunter, it was an uncharacteristically lengthy email, listing 22 points about Ukraine’s political situation, with detailed information about the upcoming election and predicting an escalation of Russia’s “destabilization campaign, which could lead to a full-scale takeover of the eastern region, most critically Donetsk.
The insights in Hunter’s laptop could only have come from confidential U.S. government sources. The Capitol Switchboard is (202) 224-3121 we urge CHQ readers and friends to call Chairman Comer, tell him you appreciate his aggressive posture on investigating the Biden family corruption. Tell him you are with him and the Oversight Committee Republicans and that you are counting on him to expose and refer for prosecution any corrupt practices his investigation reveals.
