White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki refused to comment Monday on a report that then-Vice President Biden met with a close associated of Hunter Biden, Eric Schwerin, who was repeatedly granted access to Barack Obama’s West Wing.
“I’m happy to check and see if we have any more comment,” she said, which is not true. She’s certainly not happy to do it.
She had plenty of time to happily obtain comment, given that this was reported by the New York Post Saturday morning:
Hunter Biden’s closest business partner made at least 19 visits to the White House and other official locations between 2009 and 2015, including a sitdown with then-Vice President Joe Biden in the West Wing.
Visitor logs from the White House of former President Barack Obama reviewed by The Post cast further doubt over Joe Biden’s claims that he knew nothing of his son’s dealings.
Eric Schwerin met with Vice President Biden on November 17, 2010 in the West Wing, when he was the president of the since-dissolved investment fund Rosemont Seneca Partners.
