Hunter Biden’s former business associate, Eric Schwerin, had more visits to the Obama White House and the residence of then-Vice President Joe Biden than previously reported.
Between 2009 and 2016, Schwerin visited these locations at least 36 times. He was a founding partner and managing director of Hunter Biden’s firm, Rosemont Seneca Partners. In 2015, Schwerin was appointed by President Obama to the Commission for the Preservation of America’s Heritage Abroad. An email from 2015 revealed that Schwerin had sought such an appointment right after the 2008 election.
As reported by Fox News, Schwerin’s visits included meetings with Joe Biden and various holiday receptions. One notable visit in November 2010 was a meeting with Joe Biden in the West Wing. Another significant event was the Dec. 12, 2015, holiday reception, which occurred shortly after Biden’s controversial trip to Ukraine where he reportedly threatened to withhold U.S. aid. Schwerin, along with other associates like Devon Archer, attended this reception.
White House logs indicate that Schwerin had meetings with several of Biden’s aides throughout the Obama-Biden administration. In 2016, he met with Steve Ricchetti, Biden’s then-chief of staff, and Anne Marie Person, a former assistant at Rosemont Seneca who later joined Biden’s office. Schwerin’s visits also included meetings with other staff members from Vice President Biden’s office.
The revelations about Schwerin’s visits come amid ongoing scrutiny of Hunter Biden’s foreign business dealings. President Biden has consistently denied any knowledge of his son’s business activities. The recent testimony of Devon Archer, another business associate of Hunter Biden, has further intensified the spotlight on the Biden family’s business ties. Neither Schwerin nor the White House has commented on the matter.
