Eric Schwerin, a close associate and long-term business partner of Hunter Biden, has been revealed to have made numerous visits to the White House and the residence of then-Vice President Joe Biden from 2009 to 2016. Recent findings show that Schwerin had visited these locations at least 36 times, with 27 of those visits occurring during Biden’s vice presidency.
Schwerin, who played a key role as the founding partner and managing director of Hunter Biden’s now-defunct firm Rosemont Seneca Partners, was appointed by President Obama to the Commission for the Preservation of America’s Heritage Abroad in 2015. In January 2017, he was reappointed to the commission by Obama.
It’s worth noting that the actual number of Schwerin’s White House visits might be higher if some of the meetings were categorized as “purely personal guests,” considering his involvement in managing the Biden family’s personal finances.
One particularly notable encounter took place in November 2010 when Schwerin had a meeting with Joe Biden in the West Wing. He also attended various holiday receptions at the vice president’s residence, including one shortly after Joe Biden’s trip to Ukraine in December 2015, when he made headlines by threatening to withhold $1 billion in U.S. aid if the country did not dismiss its top prosecutor.
During Obama’s tenure, Schwerin met with several of Biden’s aides, including Steve Ricchetti and Anne Marie Person. Additionally, he played a role in an attempt to prevent the publication of a Bloomberg News story about Hunter Biden in 2015.
These discoveries have raised questions about the extent of Hunter Biden’s business activities and have caused concern about the Biden family’s involvement in sensitive matters while in office. Despite President Biden’s repeated denial of any knowledge of his son’s business dealings, the revelation of Schwerin’s frequent visits only intensifies the scrutiny surrounding the Biden family’s connections and actions.
