The contents of Hunter’s “Laptop From Hell” are providing endless insight into the level of collusion between members of the Biden family.
Emails and texts from Hunter’s laptop produced key evidence of their financial relationship, including the embattled Biden son being forced to pay his dad’s bills.
Last year the New York Post published key findings that detailed just how reliant Joe was for Hunter’s financial assistance.
According to the Post:
[W]hile Joe was vice president, Hunter routinely paid at least some of his father’s household expenses, including AT&T bills of around $190 a month.
We know from an e-mail on June 5, 2010, with the subject “JRB bills” to Hunter from Eric Schwerin, his business partner at Rosemont Seneca, that he was expected to foot hefty bills to Wilmington contractors for maintenance and upkeep of his father’s palatial lakefront property. Joe’s initials are JRB, for Joseph Robinette Biden.
The bills that June included $2,600 to contractor Earle Downing for a “stone retaining wall” at Joe’s Wilmington estate, $1,475 to painter Ronald Peacock to paint the “back wall and columns” of the house, and $1,239 to builder Mike Christopher for repairs to the air conditioning at the cottage of Joe’s late mother, Jean “Mom-Mom” Biden, which was on his property and which he would later rent to the Secret Service for $2,200 a month.
Meanwhile, further evidence has emerged adding another Biden official into the mix.
Joe Biden’s current Chief of staff Ron Klain emailed Hunter Biden in 2012 to ask him for money for his father.
“Hey, I have to tackle a piece of unpleasant business,” he wrote in a September 2012 email to Hunter.
Klain explained to Hunter his father needed to raise $20,000 in a week to keep up the “VP Residence Foundation” as a public charity.
“I’m hitting up a few very close friends on a very confidential basis to write checks of $2,000 each,” he reportedly wrote.
Klain stressed it would be very embarrassing if the news went public and stressed the importance of secrecy.
“We need to keep this low low key, because raising money for the residence now is bad PR — but it has to be done,” he continued.

Biden at the time was running for reelection as vice president with President Barack Obama.
The incident proves that Joe had a peculiar little habit of asking his own son for money, even for basic bill paying.
Klain ultimately raised the money, according to tax records, but it was unclear whether Hunter Biden ponied up the cash for his father.
As each day passes the American public learns just how linked Joe Biden is to his son Hunter on every level, including financial.
