Peter Schweizer, the president of the Government Accountability Institute and a Gatestone Institute distinguished senior fellow, has confirmed that he’s reviewing 26,000 emails linked to Hunter Biden.
Article by Bob Unruh from WND.
Schweizer, who has written “Profiles in Corruption,” “Secret Empires” and “Clinton Cash,” has released a commentary at the Institute’s website where he explains he was approached in 2019 by a man named Bevan Cooney, a former business partner with the president’s son.
He had been convicted of fraud in a separate transaction and was in prison, so Schweizer said he did not respond immediately.
But then, late in 2020, “Bevan Cooney reached out to us again and gave us written consent to directly access his personal Gmail account, which contained 26,000 emails relating to his business dealings with Hunter Biden.”
Schweizer said, “What we have is not printouts, PDF files or screenshots purporting to be genuine. It is the email account itself. We have been poring through its contents and cross-checking them against other sources to confirm their authenticity and accuracy. We have cross-referenced the Hunter Biden emails with the Bevan Cooney emails, with Secret Service travel logs, materials provided by another former associate of Hunter Biden’s named Tony Bobulinski, and Senator Ron Johnson’s committee report on these matters,” he explained.
“They all match up perfectly. For example, where the emails reference Hunter Biden being in a certain location, or out of town until a certain date, we found perfect correlation with the Secret Service travel logs.”
What the emails contain wasn’t released immediately.
But he explained that the significance of the Hunter Biden laptop, a unit that reportedly was abandoned at a repair shop that eventually found its way to Rudy Giuliani, a lawyer for President Trump before the last election.
“It is primary, original source,” he noted, so much so that “even Hunter Biden finally has acknowledged it.”
The story of Hunter Biden’s business dealings while his father Joe was vice president and point man for United States’ foreign policy in both Ukraine and China was already known, dimly, in 2018 when the book ‘Secret Empires’ was published and revealed the extent of those dealings, he explained.
“Our research combed through obscure records, cross-checked them, and made some educated conclusions. The book made plain what many had suspected – that Hunter Biden received money, position, and other favors from foreign governments and corporations that were eager to please his father. The book showed that there was no way that Hunter could have gotten such things without his father’s name, position, and knowledge. The book’s conclusions were based on reconstructions of timelines, records obtained through hard work done on location in foreign countries,” he said.
“Yet, some in the media still accused us of engaging in a ‘witch hunt’ designed simply to embarrass the family of now-President Joe Biden.”
The laptop appeared during the 2020 election race.
“What emerges from all of this clearly shows what I call the ‘Biden business model,’ in which the Biden family seems to trade off the Biden name, Biden connections, and the Biden access,” he wrote.
“Recently, Hunter Biden has sat for several interviews to discuss his new memoir about his struggles with drug addiction. The investigative reporter in me cannot resist pointing out these interviews were done by CBS News, owned by ViacomCBS, which also owns Simon & Schuster, the publisher of his new book,” Schweizer wrote.
“He mostly dodged questions about the laptop,” he explained.
But he said it raises the question of whether Hunter Biden “is covering for his father.”
“Emails reviewed by Sen. Ron Johnson’s committee during its investigation referenced a consultant writing to Hunter Biden about a proposed partnership with Chinese businessmen. The email says Hunter will receive a 20% equity in the partnership, plus a 10% stake ‘held by H for the big guy?'”
“I have learned one thing in the years I have spent looking for corruption and cronyism by government officials. The modern model of corruption in politics is rarely done in a straight line, but along the branches of a family tree. As foreign governments and other interested parties have learned, the way to a politician’s heart is through his family. There is circumstantial evidence in the collection of materials now possessed by the FBI and journalists that Hunter Biden was acting as a cover for business dealings that would benefit his father or at a minimum the Biden family estate, which includes his father,” Schweizer said.
Schweizer reported only a few months ago that evidence shows that Hunter Biden is “paying a lot of the family’s bills, including his father’s and his mother’s, with these foreign gains.”
“This is an issue of enrichment involving Joe Biden himself,” he said at the time, in an interview with Fox News’ Sean Hannity.
Messages between Hunter Biden’s business partners, he said, show “how the Biden family actually operates in this commercial space.”
Schweizer said Joe Biden is trying to distance himself from his son’s business deals, but “that’s just not simply how the family has operated.”
The scandals first erupted into headlines when it was learned that Hunter Biden was being paid in the range of $83,000 a month to be on the board of a Ukrainian gas company, without any industry experience, while his father was vice president for Barack Obama and in charge of Ukraine policy.
Eventually, former Ukraine general prosecutor Victor Shokin filed a criminal complaint accusing Joe Biden of committing a “criminal offense” in his effort to fire him, according to a French website.
Biden openly boasted of threatening to withhold $1 billion in U.S. aid if Ukraine’s president did not fire Shokin, who at the time was investigating the company paying his son.
It states that Biden’s request “concerning my ousting from the post of the Attorney General of Ukraine as a condition for the granting of financial (economic) assistance is qualified as pressure, which represents interference in the internal affairs of Ukraine on the part of a foreign power in violation of one of the principles of international law.”
The complaint is addressed to the interim director of the National Bureau of Investigation of Ukraine.
Further, Hunter Biden himself admitted in recent weeks he’s under federal investigation for his taxes, which likely also would include a complete review of his income.
‘The Purge’ by Big Tech targets conservatives, including us
Just when we thought the Covid-19 lockdowns were ending and our ability to stay afloat was improving, censorship reared its ugly head.
For the last few months, NOQ Report, Conservative Playbook, and the American Conservative Movement have appealed to our readers for assistance in staying afloat through Covid-19 lockdowns. The downturn in the economy has limited our ability to generate proper ad revenue just as our traffic was skyrocketing. We had our first sustained stretch of three months with over a million visitors in November, December, and January, but February saw a dip.
It wasn’t just the shortened month. We expected that. We also expected the continuation of dropping traffic from “woke” Big Tech companies like Google, Facebook, and Twitter, but it has actually been much worse than anticipated. Our Twitter account was banned. Both of our YouTube accounts were banned. Facebook “fact-checks” everything we post. Spotify canceled us. Medium canceled us. Apple canceled us. Why? Because we believe in the truth prevailing, and that means we will continue to discuss “taboo” topics.
The 2020 presidential election was stolen. You can’t say that on Big Tech platforms without risking cancellation, but we’d rather get cancelled for telling the truth rather than staying around to repeat mainstream media’s lies. They have been covering it up since before the election and they’ve convinced the vast majority of conservative news outlets that they will be harmed if they continue to discuss voter fraud. We refuse to back down. The truth is the truth.
The lies associated with Covid-19 are only slightly more prevalent than the suppression of valid scientific information that runs counter to the prescribed narrative. We should be allowed to ask questions about the vaccines, for example, as there is ample evidence for concern. One does not have to be an “anti-vaxxer” in order to want answers about vaccines that are still considered experimental and that have a track record in a short period of time of having side-effects, including death. One of our stories about the Johnson & Johnson “vaccine” causing blood clots was “fact-checked” and removed one day before the government hit the brakes on it. These questions and news items are not allowed on Big Tech which is just another reason we are getting canceled.
There are more topics that they refuse to allow. In turn, we refuse to stop discussing them. This is why we desperately need your help. The best way NOQ, CP, and ACM readers can help is to donate. Our Giving Fuel page makes it easy to donate one-time or monthly. Alternatively, you can donate through PayPal as well. We are on track to be short by about $4100 per month in order to maintain operations.
The second way to help is to become a partner. We’ve strongly considered seeking angel investors in the past but because we were paying the bills, it didn’t seem necessary. Now, we’re struggling to pay the bills. We had 5,657,724 sessions on our website from November, 2020, through February, 2021. Our intention is to elevate that to higher levels this year by focusing on a strategy that relies on free speech rather than being beholden to progressive Big Tech companies.
During that four-month stretch, Twitter and Facebook accounted for about 20% of our traffic. We are actively working on operating as if that traffic is zero, replacing it with platforms that operate more freely such as Gab, Parler, and others. While we were never as dependent on Big Tech as most conservative sites, we’d like to be completely free from them. That doesn’t mean we will block them, but we refuse to be beholden to companies that absolutely despise us simply because of our political ideology.
We’re heading in the right direction and we believe we’re ready talk to patriotic investors who want to not only “get in on the action” but more importantly who want to help America hear the truth. Interested investors should contact me directly with the contact button above.
As the world spirals towards radical progressivism, the need for truthful journalism has never been greater. But in these times, we need as many conservative media voices as possible. Please help keep NOQ Report going.
