The so-called "laptop from hell" has revealed yet again that some of Hunter Biden's expensive, hedonistic pursuits were funded by President Joe Biden.
According to data uncovered in the laptop, Hunter Biden received tens of thousands of dollars from his father in a very short amount of time. Andrew Kerr and Jerry Dunleavy report for the Washington Examiner that Joe Biden wired son Hunter "a total of $100,000 to help pay [Hunter] bills from December 2018 through January 2019." Though Hunter sought the money under legitimate pretenses, he often spent much of it on Russian escorts, records show.
Kerr and Dunleavy are careful to note that Joe Biden funded these escort enterprises "unwittingly" and that nothing uncovered on the laptop "would suggest Joe Biden was aware of his son's activities." However, Hunter's predictable pattern of behavior — broken promises, fights with other family members regarding money — and the fact that banking institutions had to block some of his financial transactions should have given Joe Biden cause for concern.
According to the report from Kerr and Dunleavy, Hunter Biden sought escort services from UberGFE, a nebulous entity that "listed apparent locations in 'Moscow - St. Petersburg - Kiev'" as recently as 2016. UberGFE is not registered anywhere in the US.
Among the various transactions documented on the laptop between Hunter Biden and UberGFE is a particularly unsettling incident between Hunter and an unidentified escort in January 2019. Hunter apparently paid Eva, his UberGFE contact, $5,000 for eight hours with the young escort. He then contacted Eva to extend his time with the escort to 16 total hours, but was unable to cover the $10,000 price tag on his own.
Records show that Joe Biden wired his son $5,000 an hour and a half after Hunter negotiated with Eva for extended time. Richard Ruffner, who was an assistant to Joe Biden at the time, then texted Hunter shortly thereafter to apologize that Joe Biden "was only able to do $5000 because the weekly limit is $7,500."
Hunter also filmed a brief video of his encounter with the escort. On the film, Hunter repeatedly asks the young woman — who speaks little English — whether she is at all hurt. He also warns her that she cannot "talk to [him] that way and say things like that," though what she allegedly said is never made clear.
Other data from the laptop demonstrates that several banking institutions blocked some of Hunter's attempted financial transactions. Hunter texted Eva in February 2019 to tell her that he could not send money to entities with a Russian email address because those were a "red flag" that forced banks to freeze his accounts.
Hunter also solicited his father for tens of thousands of dollars for alimony and child support in December 2018.
“75 being wired today,” Joe Biden texted his son in response.
Two months later, Hunter requested — and was granted — $20,000 for a drug rehab program, a program in which Hunter ultimately never enrolled.
Though Kerr and Dunleavy insist that Joe Biden was unaware of the true purpose of these exorbitant loans to son Hunter, former federal prosecutor Andy McCarthy is much more skeptical.
“The context here is that Democrats put the country through two years of anxiety on the false, Democrat-fabricated claim that Biden’s predecessor was an agent of the Kremlin,” McCarthy said. “And of course, when compelling evidence arose that Biden is actually entangled in his son’s foreign business dealings, despite having denied even discussing them, Biden apologists responded with their standard deceptive deflection — it’s all Russian disinformation.
“Now, however, we learn that it was Russian information — Hunter’s reckless payments of thousands of dollars he'd received from his willfully blind father to sordid businesses with Russian email accounts — that Biden apologists were suppressing in the weeks before the 2020 election.”
