Report: New photos revive questions on what Joe Biden knew about his son’s foreign business dealings

New photos are calling into question President Joe Biden’s claim that he “never spoke” with his son Hunter about the younger Biden’s international business dealings.

The photos are the latest pieces of evidence to be released from Hunter Biden’s laptop — the same infamous laptop that made headlines last fall after turning up at a computer shop in Delaware.

The latest

According to the New York Post, the newly released photos depict both Joe and Hunter Biden alongside several of Hunter’s business associates, including Mexican billionaires Carlos Slim and Miguel Aleman Velasco.

Also in one photo, the Post reports, is Miguel Aleman, the founder of budget airline Interjet, and Jeff Cooper, the man who ran one of the biggest asbestos litigation firms and whose relationship with the Biden family has been well documented.

The photos are believed to have been taken in 2015, when Joe Biden was vice president.

The background

The Post’s Miranda Devine points out that the photos were pretty clearly taken in the living room of the vice president’s residence at the Naval Observatory in Washington, D.C.

She notes the “daffodil yellow” color that the room was painted and the “distinctive paintings by Vermont artist Wolf Kahn” that hung on the walls, among other things.

The photos were taken just after 10 a.m. on Nov. 19, 2015, according to their timestamps. A memo from Hunter Biden recorded at 8:30 a.m. that day reportedly reads: “Breakfast with Dad — NavObs.”

What’s more, Politico reported the next day, “SPOTTED: Carlos Slim in the lobby yesterday morning of the Georgetown Four Seasons,” a clear indicator that Slim was in town.

The bottom line

It all just serves as further evidence suggesting that, contrary to what he claims, President Biden may have both known about and discussed his son Hunter’s foreign business dealings while he was working in the White House under President Barack Obama.

Some have alleged that Hunter Biden tried to use his father’s office as vice president to further his business endeavors. It doesn’t help matters that reports have indicated Hunter took nearly two dozen flights from Andrews Air Force base during his father’s vice presidency.

President Biden has yet to comment on the latest development in the controversy.
