It’s very hard to determine which exact dollars Hunter Biden used to allegedly pay for Russian escorts, but it’s very possible some of the money could have been from his father, President Joe Biden, who likely had no idea what his son was spending money on, as reported. As of now, this is more of a theory than fact and would need to be proven beyond a reasonable doubt what Hunter Biden did with money received from his father. However, here’s what Washington Examiner, a trusted source, has revealed:
Records from a copy of Hunter Biden’s abandoned laptop show that President Joe Biden apparently unwittingly financed his son’s participation in an escort ring tied to Russia.
During a three-and-a-half-month period between November 2018 and March 2019, Hunter Biden spent over $30,000 on escorts, many of whom were linked to “.ru” Russian email addresses and worked with an “exclusive model agency” called UberGFE.
Hunter managed to do this partly thanks to Joe Biden committing to wiring him a total of $100,000 to help pay his bills from December 2018 through January 2019.
Joe Biden wired his son $5,000, in one instance, while Hunter was actively engaged with an UberGFE escort. He also wired $20,000 to his son, in another instance, as texts indicated Hunter Biden convinced his father to finance his stay at a New York City drug rehabilitation program that he never checked into.
Shortly after this story was published, Hunter told the Washington Examiner: “What’s wrong with you?”
In these messages, there is no suggestion that Joe Biden knew what his son was spending his support payments on.
The go-between who served as Hunter’s primary point of contact for UberGFE is a woman named Eva, and Hunter disclosed in text messages with her that his accounts were temporarily frozen at one point because his attempted payments to her “girls” with Russian email accounts were too much of a “red flag” for his bank. Eva refers to him with his birth name in the messages, which is Robert.
“Hunter Biden paid nonresident women who were nationals of Russia or other Eastern European countries,” and records note some of these transactions are linked to what “appears to be an Eastern European prostitution or human trafficking ring,” a 2020 Senate report by Sens. Chuck Grassley (R-IA) and Ron Johnson (R-WI) said.
Hunter Biden “sent thousands of dollars” to people either involved in “transactions consistent with possible human trafficking” or “potential association with prostitution,” the report said. Some of the women “subsequently wired funds they have received from Hunter Biden to individuals located in Russia and Ukraine.”
A 2019 letter by Grassley and Johnson was sent to the director of the Treasury Department’s Financial Crimes Enforcement Network requesting “all Suspicious Activity Reports” tied to Hunter Biden and his businesses.
Including Hunter Biden’s communications with his father, many of the previously unreported records cited in this story were located in a password-protected iPhone XS backup found on a copy of his abandoned laptop. On February 6, 2019, the iPhone was saved to Hunter Biden’s computer, and Konstantinos “Gus” Dimitrelos, a cyber forensics expert commissioned by the Washington Examiner, located the password to the iPhone backup during his examination of the hard drive.
Joe Biden, in another instance, wired his son $5,000 less than three hours before he filmed a dispute with an escort over a $10,000 payment at a cottage in Boston, Massachusetts.
During the early hours of January 18, 2019, Hunter Biden requested Eva send one of her escorts to his cottage. A few hours after, he texted Eva asking how much it would cost for another 8 hours of the escort’s time, to which Eva answered the total charge for 16 hours would be $9,500. Eva directed at 5:17 p.m. that day, that he wire the funds to a bank account linked to a woman with a Russian email address.
Less than an hour and a half later, at 6:31 p.m., Hunter Biden received an email informing him that “Joseph R Biden Jr.” had sent him $5,000 through Cash App. Joe Biden’s then-assistant Richard Ruffner texted Hunter Biden that same minute informing him he “was only able to do $5000 because the weekly limit is $7,500.”
Hunter can be heard in an 83-second video which he filmed and sent to Eva, having a conversation with the escort, asking if he had ever hurt her: “Is anything hurt on you? Anything? I was literally saying I’m sorry that it took so long to give you $10,000. Do you have any bruise? Anything? Have I ever touched you in a bad way? Ever? Have I asked you every time if I could touch you? Every time. Sweetheart, look at me. You cannot talk to me that way and say things like that. Because I’m more respectful than anyone you’ve ever met. Are you OK?”
After he sent the video, Hunter added that the woman speaks no English and that she was “frustrated,” to which Eva responded: “All good.”
