Joe Biden has said again and again that he has never discussed with his son Hunter his overseas business dealings.
A new photograph casts serious doubt on that claim.
The photo, which once again comes from the infamous Hunter Biden laptop that the liberal media continues to pretend doesn’t exist, shows Joe Biden with Hunter and several of Hunter’s Latin-American business partners in the VP’s office in 2014.
Once again, nobody is holding Biden accountable for his lies outside a few mainstream news organizations.
Daily Mail has more on the contradictory evidence to Biden's claim:
Joe Biden entertained his son's business associates in the vice president's office, including Mexican billionaires Carlos Slim and Miguel Alemán Velasco.
The then-vice president also flew Hunter and his partner Jeff Cooper on Air Force 2 to Mexico City in 2016 where Hunter arranged to meet Alemán's son for meetings over a 'flippin gigantic' business deal.
The revelations, laid bare in photographs and emails on Hunter's abandoned laptop, are the latest in a growing body of evidence calling into question the president’s claim that he never spoke about business with Hunter.
In the light of shocking documents uncovered by DailyMail.com from the laptop, the president now faces serious questions – not just whether he knew about Hunter's controversial business dealings, but also whether he was involved in facilitating them himself while vice president.
The White House continues to fail to respond to any of our questions.
Hunter and Biden family friend Jeff Cooper hatched a plan in 2013 to invest in multiple businesses in Mexico and Latin America, using their relationship with the Mexican billionaire Alemán family whose late patriarch, Miguel Alemán Valdes, served as president of Mexico.
Cooper, an attorney who worked with Hunter's late brother Beau Biden on asbestos claims cases and donated hundreds of thousands of dollars to Biden political campaigns, was particularly excited by the venture's prospects, writing to Hunter in February 2013: 'This is setting up to be flippin gigantic brother.'
The prospects for profit only grew when Hunter joined the board of Ukrainian gas company Burisma the following year.
He and Cooper sought the help of Valdés' grandson, airline CEO Miguel Alemán Magnani, to forge a relationship with the richest man in Latin America, Carlos Slim, in an attempt to cash in on the privatization of the giant state-owned oil company Pemex for Burisma and themselves.
While Hunter and Cooper were working on their business plans, they managed to get the billionaires Slim, Velasco and Magnani a private 'meeting' with then-vice president Joe Biden.
Hunter and Cooper attended. Photos on Hunter's laptop dated November 19, 2015 show the six men smiling and hugging in the meeting in Joe Biden’s vice presidential residence at Number One Observatory Circle, Washington DC. Emails also show the billionaires met with Joe at the White House. It is unclear what, if anything, Joe Biden discussed with the Mexican billionaires at their meetings and phone call.
The White House has repeatedly failed to answer any of DailyMail.com's questions related to the president and his son.
It appears there may have been multiple White House meetings, as over a year earlier Hunter emailed White House photographer David Lienemann to ask for photographs of the Alemán family with his business partner and father.
'Do you have pictures from the lunch I had in dad's office (I think on 2/26) with Miguel Alleman Sr. And Jr. And Jeff Cooper? If so let me know and I can send someone to pick them up,' Hunter wrote in 2014.
In May that year Cooper even asked Hunter if he could get the pictures signed for the Mexican billionaires.
'Any luck on getting those other pics from the WH [White House]-Alemán visit? Or getting a few signed for Miguel and his dad?' the attorney wrote.
Fox News with more on the incriminating photo:
Images obtained by Fox News on Thursday cast new doubts on President Biden’s adamant claims during the 2020 presidential campaign that he never discussed overseas business dealings with his son Hunter.
One of the pictures appears to show Biden next to Mexican billionaire Carlos Slim with Hunter off to the side. Two other executives are in the frame along with Hunter's associates.
The New York Post, which first reported on the photos, said Hunter and his associates were working at the time on energy deals in Latin America and Mexico.
The photos obtained by Fox News were from Hunter's laptop and provided by Robert Costello, an attorney for Rudy Giuliani. A timestamp indicates that the pictures were taken on Nov. 19, 2015.
The timestamp also coincides with a scheduled 8:30 a.m. "Breakfast with Dad – NAVOBS," according to an email from the hard drive, an apparent reference to the U.S. Naval Academy, which is the vice president's residence.
An email sent the following day by Eric Schwerin of Hunter Biden’s firm Rosemont Seneca, shows a Politico Playbook headline corroborating Slim being in the D.C. area – with an article headlined, "SPOTTED: Carlos Slim in the lobby yesterday morning of the Georgetown Four Seasons."
A representative for Slim did not immediately respond to an email from Fox News.
Several of the high-powered foreign executives were already familiar to the president, having been involved politics that intersected with American interests. It is unclear is Hunter Biden was trying to capitalize on the existing relationships or making new introductions.
The photos are the type you'd expect to see adorning the walls inside any influential politician’s home: the elected official flanked by one of his sons and a few billionaires inside a smartly decorated room. But the picture becomes a political albatross when the politician in the photo insisted throughout his presidential campaign that he never discussed any overseas business dealings with the son who is also in the photo.
One of the pictures in question appears to show Biden with his son Hunter alongside Slim; Interjet’s CEO Miguel Aleman Magnani; the company's chairman Miguel Aleman Velasco; and Hunter’s associate Jeff Cooper, a longtime former managing partner of the law firm SimmonsCooper-- a big Biden donor.
