The Biden administration failed to explain why Joe Biden met with his son Hunter’s business partner at the White House. During a press briefing on Monday, Secretary Jen Psaki was asked about a New York Post report saying Hunter’s business partner Eric Schwerin had 19 meetings with top Obama administration officials.
Those meetings took place between 2009 and 2015 as indicated by White House visitor logs and other documents reviewed by the New York Post. Psaki had no concrete answer to the question.
Schwerin and Hunter Biden were partners at investment firm Rosemont Seneca, which accepted payments from Ukrainian gas company Burisma. Republican lawmakers say this latest evidence shows Joe Biden knew of his son’s business in Ukraine and has directly benefited from it.
