Rational, thinking Americans have for years suspected Brandon is as corrupt as his son, Hunter Brandon, and brother, James Brandon, but now smoking gun evidence has emerged that pretty much proves the point.
According to an exclusive report by the UK’s Daily Mail, Brandon has millions of dollars unaccounted for according to discrepancies between his tax returns and government transparency disclosures.
In fact, as PJ Media’s Matt Margolis notes, “According to financial records, Brandon has $5.2 million in ‘unexplained income’ that (by pure coincidence, of course) was acquired around the same time Hunter Brandon was raking in big bucks from foreign business deals and earmarking ’10 percent for the Big Guy.’”
In addition, a separate report notes that the main business partner of Hunter Brandon visited the Obama White House — when Brandon was vice president — several times, though Brandon has regularly claimed he did not know anything about his son’s various business ventures.
Eric Schwerin, the president of Rosemont Seneca, an investment fund company, met with VP Brandon in 2010, according to Obama White House visitor logs.
The Blaze notes further:
Rosemont Seneca was founded in 2009 by Hunter Brandon, Christopher Heinz – stepson of former Secretary of State John Kerry, and Devon Archer – an American businessman who was classmates with Heinz at Yale University. Rosemont Seneca has conducted extensive business in China.
The New York Post reported that “Schwerin met with Vice President Brandon on November 17, 2010, in the West Wing, when he was the president of the since-dissolved investment fund Rosemont Seneca Partners.”
The report added, “The logs also reveal that Schwerin met with various close aides of both Joe and Jill Brandon at key moments in Hunter’s life when he was striking multi-million dollar deals in foreign countries, including China.”
“Emails from Hunter Brandon’s discarded laptop show a series of exchanges between Hunter and his associates in Rosemont Seneca’s joint venture with Chinese investment firms Bohai Capital and BHR,” Fox News noted further. “In February 2017, Schwerin emailed the CEO of BHR, Jonathan Li. Previously, Li sent Hunter his son’s resume with a list of colleges he planned to apply to,” adding, “It is unclear if Li’s son was admitted to Brown University or, if so, whether he attended.”
The Post also said that Schwerin “made at least 19 visits to the White House and other official locations between 2009 and 2015.”
In addition, reports said that then-President Barack Obama rewarded Schwerin by naming him a member of the Commission for the Preservation of America’s Heritage Abroad.
As for the unexplained cash, while some of the Brandon’s income was derived from speaking engagements and book deals, there is still a $7 million discrepancy between income the first couple declared on their federal income taxes and the income declared on government transparency documents.
“Some of that difference can be accounted for with salaries earned by First Lady Jill Brandon and other sums not required on his reports – but still leaves $5.2 million earned by Joe’s company and not listed on his transparency reports,” the Daily Mail‘s investigation noted. “The ‘missing millions’ – combined with emails on Hunter’s abandoned laptop suggesting Joe would have a 10% share in Hunter’s blockbuster deal with the Chinese – raise a troubling question: did Brandon receive money from the foreign venture?”
And if he did, who exactly paid off the current president of the United States? Knowing that would provide a great deal of insight into whether a foreign government that could someday become an enemy has undue influence over the administration — like Russia, perhaps, or maybe even China.
The Bidens are a crime family, pure and simple. They embody the corruption that permeates Washington, D.C., and are emblematic of why so many Americans no longer trust their governing institutions but don’t expect the Brandon Justice Department to indict the president or his family anytime soon.
