The disclosure of fresh text conversations reveals the depth of Hunter Biden’s financial difficulties and his need on his father for support, adding another twist to the unfolding tale of his financial entanglements and familial ties. These disclosures, which are included in IRS whistleblower records, throw more insight on the complex financial network of the Biden family.
Hunter’s Monetary Struggles
According to reports, Hunter Biden contacted his uncle James Biden in December 2018 to ask for financial support from his father Joe Biden. The text messages show that Hunter was having trouble paying for his three daughters’ tuition at their respective schools and had exhausted the millions of dollars he had made from his overseas business ventures.
Hunter bemoaned in a message dated December 29, 2018, “I can work all day every day for the next three months in NYC when I’m not with my dad, but I can’t pay for food and gas or tuition or alimony.” It’s really all gone.” Even though he said he could make up the difference in funds in a few weeks, it was obvious that he needed help right then.
Family Assistance and Budgetary Plans
James Biden, Hunter’s uncle, answered his request by saying that Joe Biden could “help” the process along a bit. “This can work, but you need a safe harbor,” he said. Father, I can work with you by myself! As usual, all we need is a few months of his assistance to make this happen.”
The text exchanges reveal a financial agreement inside the Biden family, with James Biden suggesting that Hunter’s circumstances will be stabilized by Joe Biden’s financial help. Although the specifics of this arrangement are yet unknown, the texts cast doubt on Joe Biden’s level of involvement in his son’s financial matters.
Documents from IRS Whistleblowers
The House Ways and Means Committee has made a wealth of records available, including these illuminating text messages. According to the documents, Hunter Biden has engaged in dubious commercial dealings with foreign firms and a number of influence-peddling operations. Accompanying the message was an explanation from IRS whistleblower Joseph Ziegler that the circumstances created during the investigation precluded a detailed analysis of James Biden’s involvement in the financial arrangements.
The financial activities of the Biden family, which have been the focus of attention and investigations, are made more complicated by these documents. They draw attention to the necessity for openness in situations involving public personalities and express worries about the impact of political ties on economic activities.
The text conversations further muddy an earlier, widely publicized conversation between Hunter and his daughter Naomi from January 2019, in which Hunter said he had handed his father “half” of his pay. This fresh data points to a greater degree of financial dependency within the Biden family.
Following earlier disclosures that Hunter Biden was accused of engaging in influence-peddling in commercial transactions with foreign parties, including as China and Ukraine, these records have now been made public. The Biden family’s financial transactions have been the subject of inquiries and have sparked concerns about possible conflicts of interest.
