Hunter Biden begged brother’s widow to get tested for HIV after affair
Recent revelations from Republican House Oversight Committee Chair James Comer (KY-01) that Hallie Biden – widow of President Joe Biden's son Beau – was among the family members who took a cut of payments received from a Chinese-linked firm, have brought renewed attention to the controversial relationship she also had with Hunter Biden, who at one point implored her to be tested for HIV.
The fact that Hallie Biden, who, as Comer noted, was “publicly reported to work as a school counselor” would receive significant sums from a Chinese-connected energy company has prompted a host of questions and sparked fresh curiosity into her highly unusual ties to her late husband's brother.
“Mystery” Biden revealed
After teasing the discovery of another Biden family member who benefitted from Hunter Biden's foreign business dealings, Comer revealed earlier this month that Hallie Biden took in a total of $35,000 spread over two transfers back in 2017, as the Post noted.
Those transfers came from Biden family business associate Rob Walker, who had received $3 million from an entity known as State Energy HK Limited, which was linked to CEFC China Energy.
One of the aforementioned transfers was for $25,000, which came on March 20, 2017, and the other was for $10,000, which came on Feb. 13 of that year – curious due to its arrival before, not after, the $3 million transfer to Walker from the Chinese firm.
Remarking on the discoveries, Comer declared, “It is unclear what services were provided to obtain this exorbitant amount of money” or why a someone known to be a school counselor would have been in the loop on such transactions.
Hallie Biden's perplexing windfall is just another strange element to an already complicated family dynamic, which saw her become romantically involved with Hunter Biden after the brain cancer death of her husband – his brother – in 2015.
Hunter and Hallie were linked between the years of 2016 and 2019, a period of time encompassing the transfers currently under scrutiny by the House Oversight Committee.
During their entanglement, Hunter and Hallie reportedly both struggled with substance abuse issues, and Hunter was said to have engaged in ongoing, raunchy communications – and possibly an affair – with Hallie's then-separated sister, Elizabeth Secundy, according to the Daily Mail.
In the latter stages of their relationship, Hunter was said to have accused Hallie of sowing discord between himself and Hallie's daughter, Natalie Biden, one of several indicators of the tumultuous nature of their pairing.
“You need to get tested”
The scandalous – and arguably alarming – nature of Hunter and Hallie's relationship was laid bare again when it was revealed that in the summer of 2018, the first son urgently instructed his paramour to immediately seek an HIV test, as the Mail explained.
A message dated July 27 of that year featured an all-caps subject line that read, “YOU NEED TO GET TESTED FOR HIV HALLIE.”
Though Hunter did not elaborate on why such prompt testing was necessary, he wrote, “You need to inform me of the result. TODAY. I'm getting tested today. I have been sick scared Hallie and you Han g [sic] up on me. The love you give is so disturbing.”
“GET TESTED AND TELL ME RESULTS Today,” Hunter's message to Hallie concluded.
White House deflects
Despite the abundance of red flags surrounding Hunter and Hallie Biden's relationship and finances, the White House has dismissed Comer's recent discovery as an untoward “attack” on a woman touched by tragedy.
Biden administration spokesperson Ian Sams recently declared the Oversight Committee probe to be a cruel intrusion on the president's family, doing so without addressing the substance of what Comer found.
“After a disgusting attack lamenting that the president's deceased son Beau was never prosecuted while he was alive, Congressman Comer has now decided to go after Beau's widow,” Sams said, according to the Mail.
However, given the shockingly sordid details of the duo's past history that have come to light in recent years, that sort of deflection may not be as persuasive in the eyes of the public as the White House might hope.
