What has been the extent of Joe Biden’s involvement in his son’s disturbing past?
It turns out that he may have helped fund Hunter Biden’s scandals, including paying for his drugs and a prostitute.
Joe Biden may now face an FBI probe relating to these allegations and his son’s finances.
Hunter allegedly enjoyed a week-long “bender” in a Hollywood hotel in May of 2018, which was “complete with drugs and a prostitute.”
The potential existence of a joint account between Hunter and his father “raises serious questions” about whether money from the account was used to fund these activities.
The Daily Mail found more financial connections.
For example, Hunter Biden’s laptop shows email communications between Hunter and Eric Scherwin, who works for consultancy Rosemont Seneca. This group prepared Joe Biden’s taxes in 2018 while he was vice president.
The Daily Mail reported that Rosemont Seneca received special favors from the White House during Joe Biden’s vice presidency.
This corruption allegedly included giving Rosemont Seneca tickets to exclusive events and private White House tours for its clients and associates.
“In the emails, Scherwin reportedly suggested the Bidens had been paying each other’s household bills,” Western Journal notes.
“The Daily Mail also said the emails reveal that the father and son shared at least some of their accounts,” the report adds.
Hunter Biden has admitted that he is under federal investigation regarding his taxes.
A former federal prosecutor explained that the possibility of cash flow between Hunter and Joe Biden could make Joe subject to the probe.
Under the condition of anonymity, he said, “Whatever transaction you’re looking at, if there’s a connection to a family member or a friend, sure the answer is yes [they would be investigated].”
“Obviously, if you’re talking about the President of the United States, you’d better have a pretty damn good reason to talk to that person.”

This is especially true in the case of Joe Biden. He has historically been able to avoid questions about his son’s corruption without being held accountable by the media or facing FBI inquiries.
In addition to corruption charges, the FBI and IRS are also examining Hunter Biden’s foreign business dealings for possible money laundering, the Daily Mail reported.
Former U.S. Intelligence Officer John Cassara said if Joe Biden were not president, he would not most likely not have been able to avoid investigations from the FBI up to this point.
“The information available publicly is very worrisome, particularly in the areas of corruption,” he said. “They could go at this from all different avenues. Follow the corruption trail and then charge money laundering. Corruption is a predicate offense for money laundering.”
Even if Joe Biden once again avoids investigation, Cassara said his involvement with Hunter’s finances cast a dark shadow on him.
“This kind of thing should not be happening,” he said. “It undermines full faith in the US government. It undermines trust and our international reputation. It’s an embarrassment.”
The outlet reported Hunter Biden sent an email to an associate in 2018 saying he had been locked out of his bank account while his father was using it. He reportedly said “too many profile changes” led to the problem, suggesting he and Joe Biden were still sharing some finances in 2018.
