Now … there’s a major allegation that Hunter used access to his father to seal previously unknown deals with Mexican businessmen, including Carlos Slim.
Carlos Slim is a billionaire, once briefly considered the richest man in the world, and one of the main proprietors of the New York Times. He rescued the Times when the newspaper was in financial trouble. This observation is correct and infuriating:
As in the past, Americans interested in such stories have had to rely on the foreign press or a couple of national sites for such information.
This is the story that has emerged in the latest round of emails from Hunter Biden:
The new emails include references to Hunter Biden’s use of Air Force II to pursue the deals, a similar pattern revealed regarding the deals with China. The emails detail several visits to Mexico, including a February 2016 flight on Air Force II with his father. On the plane was his business partner Jeff Cooper, who ran the Illinois-based SimmonsCooper.
These deals continued in 2018 when Hunter pushed for deals with Slim. A text message from July 24, 2018 reads “I talked to my dad about ‘Slim ask'” and Cooper replies “Oh that sounds VERY GOOD.”
Will we ever find out what Carlos Slim is “asking”? Sadly, probably not. Meanwhile, we know that Joe Biden’s denials that he had anything to do with his son’s influence peddling are lies.
The new emails contain additional information that directly contradicts President Biden. In addition to previous images of golf trips and references to your participation or knowledge, the new material refers to a remarkable dinner organized in Washington, DC.
Hunter hosted a dinner for then-Vice President Biden on April 16, 2015 with his Ukrainian, Russian and Kazakh business partners. They appropriately chose a private room at Café Milano, a Georgetown restaurant that boasts of being “where the most powerful people in the world go.” After dinner, Hunter received an email from Vadym Pozharskyi, an executive at the Ukrainian energy company Burisma, to thank him for introducing him to his father: “Dear Hunter, thank you for inviting me to DC and giving me the opportunity to meet your father. and spent [sic] some time together. It is real [sic] an honor and a pleasure “.
It’s clear that Hunter Biden was selling access and influence. It seems that Joe Biden was aware of that effort.
I’ve said it before, but it bears repeating: no one has ever bribed Hunter Biden. He is a poor, lost, drug addicted soul who probably wouldn’t be able to work if it weren’t for the fact that his father is a well-known politician. His role was to act as a collector, lining up and collecting bribes for his father in the form of “trade deals” with the Red Chinese and operators like Carlos Slim.
We can imagine a parallel universe in which American “journalists” are able to put aside their loyalty to the Democratic Party and analyze the question of whether we have a president hopelessly compromised by the bribes he has received from foreign powers, starting with the Chinese. Communist party. But that, sadly, is not the world we live in.
Miranda devine has more.
