Hunter Biden’s closest business partner spent a lot of time visiting the White House between 2009 and 2015 — and he apparently even scored a meeting with “the big guy” himself.
New York Post reporters Miranda Devine and Jonathan Levine laid out the details of that West Wing meeting — along with over a dozen other White House visits that included meetings with aides close to the Bidens — in their most recent report.
The White House visitor logs revealed a number of visits from Eric Schwerin — including a sit-down with then-Vice President Joe Biden — while he was president of the now-defunct investment fund Rosemont Seneca Partners.
White House visitor logs show that Eric #Schwerin, #HunterBiden's top business partner, met with Vice President Biden and key staff 19 times. That's quite a few. I had 7 meetings from 2017-19 and was able to get a lot done. But 19? Why?https://t.co/rTQwH4RXlz

Schwerin also met with other aides who were close to the vice president and his wife, Dr. Jill Biden, during the time that Hunter was allegedly securing lucrative business deals in places like communist China.
The fact that Hunter’s business partner was a regular presence at the White House could blow yet another hole in Biden’s often-repeated claim that he “knew nothing” of Hunter’s foreign business dealings.
“I have never spoken to my son about his overseas business dealings,” Biden said in 2019.

But Schwerin, in addition to working with Hunter, also was involved in assisting Joe Biden with personal financial matters — from his taxes to his plans for the future.
Schwerin also reportedly visited the vice president’s residence and the U.S. Naval Observatory on a regular basis while the Biden’s were living there.
Senator Ted Cruz told the New York Post that more and more, the details leaking out about Hunter Biden’s business deals — and the use of his family name to secure them — suggest that an investigation is a necessary next step.
“It’s increasingly obvious that Hunter Biden’s business revolved around providing access to his father and the highest levers of power. It reeks of pay-to-play. The clear solution is a Special Counsel investigation to fairly investigate the disturbing allegations of Biden family corruption,” Cruz said.
Senator Ron Johnson (R-WI) agreed, telling the Post, “Not everyone gets to meet the Vice President of the United States in the White House. The press should be asking why Hunter Biden’s business associates — like Eric Schwerin — had that privilege and were given access to the Obama White House. This is additional evidence that Joe Biden lied when he said he never discussed Hunter’s foreign business dealings. It’s well past time for the corporate media to demand the truth from Joe Biden. The corruption of Biden Inc. must be exposed.”
