The corrupt Biden family strikes again.
Emails obtained by Fox News have uncovered a dark secret involving corruption and abuse of power at the expense of America’s interests.
In 2012, an email sent by Joe Biden’s White House Chief of Staff, Ron Klain, asked Hunter Biden for help getting $20,000. Klain told Hunter to “keep this low low key” to prevent “bad PR.”
Klain explains he needed to “tackle a piece of unpleasant business.” If Hunter failed to obtain the funds for his father’s office, then the VP Residence would no longer be eligible to be a “public charity.”
Hunter forwarded the email to his longtime business partner, Eric Schwerin, who agreed to meet with Hunter to discuss this issue. Schwerin suggest that they could write a corporate check from Owasco, which was Hunter’s law firm.
Tax lawyers confirm the VP Residence Foundation (VPRF) successfully receive funds amounting to $20,500 that year. By receiving funds from Hunter, the VPRF was deceiving Americans by falsely claiming that they “resumed fundraising” and were receiving “funds from the general public.”
Instead of one payment of $20,000, Klain ask Hunter if he could limit the checks to $2,000 per person in order to give the appearance that there were multiple contributions coming from the general American people.
Hunter Biden is currently under federal investigation for potential violations of tax, money laundering and foreign lobbying laws through his past business relationships overseas.
As expected, both Klain and Joe Biden, who are implicated in Hunter’s corrupt business dealings, have continued to voice support for the first son.
Klain told ABC News that Joe Biden is “confident that his son didn’t break the law.”

The 2012 emails come on the heels of previous reports showing the behind-the-scenes workings of Hunter Biden after Joe Biden had entered the vice president’s office.
Fox News previously reported that a registered Serbian foreign agent and the Serbian Ambassador to the United States were in discussions with Hunter Biden in the early years of his dad’s first term as vice president to coordinate the scheduling of an investment meeting with Serbia’s president and Serbian “high net worth individuals.”
Past emails have also revealed that between 2010 and 2011, Hunter Biden had said his relationship with a Chinese tycoon, who Hunter and his partners referred to as “Super Chairman,” and who was arrested on money laundering charges in China, had “everything to do with my last name.”
Additionally, emails have shown that Hunter Biden tried to help a Chinese oil executive purchase an African oil field after he was warned the company had ties to countries hit with U.S. sanctions, the Free Beacon reported.
The White House, Schwerin, and Hunter’s attorney did not respond to Fox News Digital’s requests for comment.
