In 2018 text, Hunter Biden confessed he paid his dad’s bills for 11 years

 August 16, 2023

House Republicans have brought to light a text message from Hunter Biden dating back to 2018, in which he asserts that he had been paying his father's bills for over 11 years, Fox News reported.

According to the lawmakers, this disclosure has escalated discussions surrounding potential financial misconduct within the Biden family.

Hunter Biden's 2018 Texts: A Glimpse into Financial Connections

In a text thread with his assistant, Katie Dodge, Hunter detailed an incident with his Wells Fargo account.

Hunter wrote, "Too many cooks in the kitchen. Too many profile changes and such. Happened 10 days ago too. What do you need? I'm going to bank in a few. Need to verify identity in person."

When Dodge responded that she needed to pay AT&T, Hunter instructed her to use both his debit card and "Wells Fargo credit line."

The text conversation continued with Hunter mentioning, "My dad has been using most lines on this account which I've through the gracious offerings of Eric [Schwerin] have paid for past 11 years."

Whether this message refers to a shared AT&T or Wells Fargo account is unclear, and the White House has declined to provide clarification.

Emails and Memos Detailing Financial Arrangements

Previous news reports have disclosed a similar intertwining of Hunter and Joe Biden's finances. An email from 2010 written by Schwerin, Hunter Biden's business partner, spoke of transferring funds from Joe Biden's tax refund into Hunter's account.

A 2016 email showed Hunter's commitment to pay a $190 AT&T bill for "JRB," presumably referring to Joe Biden.

In a text to his daughter in 2019, Hunter complained about being compelled by his father to surrender half of his salary, hinting at financial control.

House Oversight Committee memos also reveal money flowing into Hunter-linked accounts from foreign entities when Joe Biden was vice president. However, it remains unclear whether Biden was aware of or benefited from this money.

Republicans React and Seek Justice

Leading Republicans are calling these new revelations evidence of corruption within the Biden family. Rep. Elise Stefanik (NY-21) condemned the Bidens' actions and stated that doubts over Joe Biden's integrity could no longer be dismissed.

Republican representatives have asserted that the 2018 texts between Hunter and his assistant show the president's implicit awareness of his son's financial endeavors, challenging Biden's previous claims of ignorance.

Rep. Tim Burchett (TN-02) emphasized the need for justice, saying, "The American people are owed that much."

Key players like Schwerin, known as the "money guy" in the Biden family's financial circle, and Hunter's ex-wife Kathleen Buhle have been identified as part of the financial entanglement.

The House Oversight Committee recently released its third bank memo, displaying evidence that Hunter and his business associates received millions from Russian and Kazakhstani oligarchs during Joe Biden's vice presidency.

The growing evidence has prompted Attorney General Merrick Garland to appoint U.S. Attorney David Weiss as special counsel in the federal investigation into Hunter Biden. However, Republicans immediately criticized the selection of Weiss, with House Oversight Committee Chair James Comer (KY-01) accusing the Justice Department of attempting a cover-up.
