Number of Joe Biden’s sitdowns with Hunter Biden clients is damning


With the transcript of Devon Archer’s testimony released, New York Rep. Dan Goldman stands exposed as shamelessly deceptive in his claims that Archer’s account mainly cleared President Joe Biden of any wrongdoing in connection to son Hunter’s lucrative influence-peddling.

Among the revelations:

Between meetings and phone calls, then-Veep Joe chatted repeatedly — 20 times, to Archer’s knowledge — with Hunter and his overseas clients, usually for periods longer than the cup-of-coffee or just-a-handshake that Joe’s defenders have claimed.

Notably, Archer debunked the pro-Biden lie that Joe barely stopped by an April 2015 dinner with a pack of Hunter clients.

Goldman cited a 2021 Washington Post piece claiming that Joe spoke only with a priest there.

“No,” Archer replied: It was actually “a regular dinner” and “that’s not correct reporting.”

With his decades of foreign-policy experience, Joe surely knew that all these foreigners hailed from countries where a politician’s son selling dad’s influence is typical.

So he knew his presence signaled that paying Hunter could pay off in his own actions — yet he kept doing it.

More: The only reason to do it time and again was to help Hunter collect.

Why else keep breaking bread with a pack of corruptocrats far below the level a vice president would?

And why else keep the meetings off Joe’s official schedule?

Archer is also clear on what Hunter brought to the partnership.

His name, and his proven ability to get Joe, telling Tucker Carlson that Hunter was purely about “selling access”: “You’ve got to be an expert in knowing the guy. And he was the guy that was the expert in knowing the guy.”

And: It’s “categorically false” that Joe had no role in or knowledge of his son’s business.

“He was aware of Hunter’s ­business. He met with Hunter’s business partners.”

Nor was it just these 20 Joe sitdowns: Tony Bobulinski, Hunter’s partner in a different outfit, testifies to more of them.

Not to mention the phone calls: “You’re sitting with a foreign businessperson and you hear the vice president’s voice, that’s prize enough,” Archer told Carlson.

“I mean, that’s pretty impactful stuff for anyone in the world.”

As Miranda Devine notes, all this not only exposes Goldman’s false spin, it makes a mockery of Joe’s “nearly three-year litany of lies” about being completely ignorant of Hunter’s dealings.

Even setting aside (for today) the question of whether Joe actually influenced policy to favor Hunter clients, this is damning: A huge bunch of foreigners, including China’s government, have info that could further expose Joe’s lies.

That’s prime blackmail material, casting suspicion on a host of the sitting president’s decisions — exactly what the RussiaGate investigators theorized (falsely!) about then-President Donald Trump.

Yet the Justice Department has been doing its best to avoid digging into any of it, even trying to hand Hunter immunity for everything in that now-derailed plea bargain.

So much for Goldman’s complaint that the GOP investigations are just “badgering a private citizen,” Hunter.

At this point, he’s just the tip of a vast iceberg of corruption.
