A recent bombshell report confirms allegations that Hunter Biden engaged in influence peddling while his father, Joe Biden, served as Obama’s vice president. But the damaging leaked and vetted emails that circulated regarding frozen Libyan assets in 2015 lend credence to the Biden Family running a racketeering operation out of the White House.
Around the time of the First Libyan Civil War in 2011, Obama directed the U.S. Treasury to freeze upwards of $34 billion in assets connected to Libyan strongman Muammar Gaddafi. The move was considered a way to bring financial leverage to bear in hopes an Arab Spring would usher in a democracy. But like so many other foreign and domestic issues Obama took the initial lead on, he’d toss the backend and details to his flunky, Joe Biden.
With the book on Libya in hand, then-Veep Joe Biden enjoyed wide-sweeping authority over these assets. By 2015, Obama had largely moved on to more pressing issues. The lack of interest and oversight of the $34 billion in Libyan assets apparently piqued the interest of the Biden Mafia Family. And just like an episode of the “Sopranos,” family lieutenant Hunter was enlisted to make a play.
According to confirmed email communications, the junior Biden engaged interested foreign entities with ties to Democrats to release billions. Like any good mob operation, Hunter reportedly requested $2 million upfront and a cut of anything his Veep father could release to the parties. The emails were reportedly recovered in an unrelated matter to Biden family racketeering and are not part of the treasure trove of damning information culled from Hunter Biden’s infamous laptop.
The initial email was reportedly sent on Jan. 28, 2015 from Democratic Party donor Sam Jauhari to Obama-backer Sheikh Mohammed al-Rahbani regarding working with Hunter to get their hands on the billions in frozen assets. Jauhari reportedly lays out what Hunter wants and the fact Joe Biden possesses the Libya file.
“Per phone conversation I met with #2 son. He wants $2 per year retainer +++ success fees. He wants to hire his own people — it can be close circle of people for confidentiality. His dad is deciding to run or not. His positives are he is Chairman of UN World Food Program, son of #2 who has Libya file, access to State, Treasury, business partner SofS (Secretary of State) J. (John) Forbes K (Kerry) son and since he travels with dad he is connected everywhere in Europe and Asia where M. Q. (Muammar Qaddafi) and LIA (Libya Investment Authority) had money frozen. He said he has access to highest level in PRC (China), he can help there.”
Jauhari also sends an email that candidly articulates Hunter Biden’s disgraceful character and the challenges the parties would have to deal with, should they pay the $2 million.
“His negatives are that he is alcoholic, drug addict — kicked (out) of U.S. Army for cocaine, chasing low class hookers, constantly needs money-liquidity problems and many more headaches,” Jauhari reportedly wrote.
While Jauhari may have mistaken Hunter getting booted from Navy Reserve with the “Army,” the rest appears on point. Other reports confirm Hunter’s starting retainer fee was a minimum of $2 million for this type of unscrupulous activity. He also sought at least a 5-percent kickback for any money Joe Biden could funnel to the parties.
But the inherent problem that elevates this scheme from garden variety political corruption and influence-peddling to possibly felony racketeering stems from the premeditative and systematic underworld practices. Joe Biden would have had to have reached out to Hunter to let him know he possessed the file and the coast was clear to leverage the Libyan assets in 2015. In other words, the Libyan emails and efforts to use the office of Vice President to line the Biden Family pockets represent an ongoing criminal enterprise.
Call them the Biden Mafia or the Biden Cartel if you like. But these emails constitute “high crimes and misdemeanors” never before seen from a sitting Veep or president.
