Hunter Biden associate Eric Schwerin was just grilled by House Committee on Oversight and Reform ranking member James Comer (R-KY) and 14 other Republicans, who demanded answers from Eric Schwerin on Wednesday concerning Hunter Biden’s role in President Joe Biden’s finances.
According to lawmakers, an alleged check transfer from Joe to Hunter in 2010 “raises questions” about “what role his son played in managing the president’s finances.”
Schwerin is Hunter Biden’s business partner, and according to White House visitor logs, he visited the White House 27 times between 2009 and 2016. The Republicans say, both Hunter and Schwerin headed Rosemont Seneca Partners, which has been tied to illegal financial deals involving Joe Biden.
Schwerin is said to have met with then-Vice President Joe Biden and his Chief of Staff Steve Ricchetti at least nine times in the White House. Ricchetti is President Biden’s White House counsel and served as the vice president’s chief of staff from 2013 to 2017.
The press release stated that the Republicans asked Schwerin to come clean about “his receiving and facilitating the transfer of then-Vice President Joe Biden’s tax refund check to Hunter Biden.”
“How much money President Biden owed his son and what role his son had in managing the President’s finances,” the Republicans questioned. “Information regarding the transaction and any other instances of President Biden owing money to Hunter Biden,” they added.
Joe Biden has denied any role in Hunter’s family business affairs on numerous occasions. Schwerin’s frequent visits to the White House, on the other hand, indicate otherwise.
In 2019, he remarked, “I have never spoken to my son about his overseas business dealings.” Schwerin’s visits to the White House were dismissed by White House press secretary Jen Psaki on Tuesday as “visits from more than ten years ago.”
Joe Biden: “I’ve never spoken to my son about his overseas business dealings. Here’s what I know — I know Trump deserves to be investigated… You should be looking at Trump. Trump’s doing this because he knows I’ll beat him like a drum.” https://t.co/yrMdiaBli8 pic.twitter.com/yGhipRo1ew
