Hunter Biden’s controversial laptop is revealing more stories that suggest Joe Biden remained involved in the shady overseas business dealings of his son.
The latest reports suggest Hunter met with his father right after his business dealing with a Romanian business tycoon who is accused of corruption and sentenced to seven years in jail.
Biden’s Involvement in Hunter’s Business Dealings Proved
In 2015, Hunter started working for a Romanian billionaire, Gabriel Popoviciu, who wanted the then-first son to provide him legal assistance in a 550-acre disputed land purchase case.
Emails from Hunter’s controversial laptop reveal he provided legal services to the Romanian billionaire using his law firm, Boies Schiller Flexner LLP.

Some people familiar with the business deal told the New York Post that Hunter privately signed a side deal with Popoviciu, which helped him accumulate millions of dollars.
Likewise, Popoviciu hired the former FBI director Louis Freeh as he was about to be jailed for a property scam.
So, Freeh contacted Hunter Biden in July 2015, just two hours before Hunter had to meet with his father at the vice president’s residence at the Naval Observatory.
US Diplomat Helped Hunter in Corrupt Business Practices
According to data from Hunter’s abandoned laptop, Mark Gitenstein, the current US ambassador to the European Union and a confidante of Biden’s family, was also involved in a business deal with the Romanian billionaire.
He also served as the US ambassador to Romania during Obama’s tenure, suggesting the diplomat brokered corrupt business deals using his official influence in the country.
Between 2015 and 2016, Hunter met with Gitenstein at least four times, reportedly discussing his business deal with Popoviciu.

Hunter’s business partner, Eric Schwerin, who also served as the president of Hunter’s investment firm, requested Gitenstein to push the Romanian lawmakers to change the law in order to protect the corrupt Romanian billionaire.
After doing proper research, Gitenstein emailed Hunter that the change in law would not help Popoviciu, since the law is not “retroactive.”
On the eve of November 15, 2016, Hunter flew to Romania to discuss Popoviciu’s case with the National Anticorruption Directorate (DNA) of the country. After his two-day visit, Hunter met with his dad for breakfast at the Naval Observatory.
Hunter also emailed his business associates that the DNA was asking him whether the planned meeting was to discuss Popoviciu’s case or not.
While the subsequent conversation between Hunter and the DNA is not released yet, the DNA eventually declined to meet Hunter, noting discussing any ongoing criminal case with someone outside the department is a violation of Romanian law.
Even though Hunter tried his best to save his corrupt Romanian boss, Popoviciu was sentenced to seven years in prison; he flew to England to avoid the jail term.
Although the Romanian government forced England to extradite the billionaire, Popoviciu has already won a legal case against his extradition in a London court.
