Jim Jordan, Chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, said that a bombshell note written by then-Vice President Joe Biden to his son’s then-business partner Devon Archer in 2011 constitutes compelling proof that the current president has not been forthright in his denials of the allegations.
Journalist Martha MacCallum read from the memo the New York Post received on Thursday that Joe Biden expressed regret at missing an opportunity to meet with Archer at an event at which he was entertaining then-Chinese President Hu Jintao.
“I apologize for not getting a chance to talk to you at the luncheon yesterday. I was having trouble getting away from hosting President Hu. I hope I get a chance to see you again soon with Hunter. I hope you enjoyed lunch. Thanks for coming,” the letter read.
As a postscript, Biden reportedly wrote, “Happy you guys are together” at the end of the letter sent to the Wisconsin Avenue, Georgetown, D.C., address where Hunter and Archer had formed a business partnership.
MacCallum said that at the time, Archer and Hunter Biden were trying to establish a private equity fund and a business dealing with government regulatory procedures.
Jordan claims the letter further proves that the current president was aware of and involved in his son’s business affairs.
According to Jordan, two and a half years ago, Tony Bobulinski, a former business partner, said that the words “10% for the big guy” were written in an email on the laptop.
The big guy is Joe Biden, Bobulinski added.
Jordan emphasized that during this week’s closed-door committee interview, Archer stated that the Biden name was Hunter Biden’s most valuable asset.
MacCallum also referenced Democrat responses to the Archer interview, in which they claimed Archer testified that he and Joe Biden never discussed anything other than the weather and niceties while Archer was on speakerphone.
She cited an interaction between Archer and New York Democrat Representative Daniel Goldman in her report, saying the interview transcript reveals that such discussions about trivial things as the weather were signal enough to be powerful.
Jordan told MacCallum the whole idea was to get the Vice President of the United States on the phone talking with clients and business associates – talking about business wasn’t what was needed.
Hunter Biden needed to reassure his business partners that he could get his father, the vice president of the most influential country in history, on the phone.
Jordan reaffirmed that Joe Biden’s brief encounters with Hunter were staged to demonstrate that the vice president could be reached swiftly.
He also referred to the president’s own account of his efforts to get rid of a Ukrainian prosecutor who was looking into an energy company where Hunter was a board member.
In a June 2020 interview, a confidential source informed the FBI that President Biden had received $5 million from an official of the Ukrainian natural gas firm Burisma Holdings, where Hunter was on the board.
