White House press secretary Jen Psaki said Monday that she ‘didn’t have any information’ on visitor logs showing Hunter Biden’s top business partner met with then-Vice President Joe during 19 visits between 2009 and 2015. 

‘I don’t have any information on that. I’m happy to check and see if we have any more comment,’ Psaki said when asked why the business partner, Eric Schwerin, had ‘access’ during the press briefing. 

The question followed the report in the New York Post over the weekend on the logs that showed Schwerin made a total of 19 visits to the White House during Biden’s vice presidency, with nine of those visits including meetings with Biden, members of his staff and members of Jill Biden‘s staff. 

Psaki has been pressed multiple times on Hunter Biden’s laptop, foreign business dealings and tax investigation in Delaware, but has referred reporters to the Department of Justice or said he doesn’t work in the White House.

Texas Senator Ted Cruz, a vocal critic of the Bidens, told the Post that the logs were the latest evidence of Hunter using his father to secure business deals and called on the Bidens to be investigated for corruption.

‘It’s increasingly obvious that Hunter Biden’s business revolved around providing access to his father and the highest levers of power,’ Cruz said. ‘It reeks of pay-to-play. 

‘The clear solution is a Special Counsel investigation to fairly investigate the disturbing allegations of Biden family corruption.’

The revelation comes as Hunter is currently under federal prosecution for alleged tax fraud, money laundering and illegal foreign lobbying.

According to the logs, Schwerin first arrived at the White House on October 28, 2009, to meet Biden aide Evan Ryan just months after Hunter co-founded Rosemont Seneca. 

He then returned on February 13, 2010 to meet with Jill Biden’s special assistant, Meg Campbell, and in that same year, he met with Biden and his assistant Michele Smith. 

That was the year Schwerin wrote in an email to Hunter titled ‘JRB Future Memo,’ that he had gotten in touch with Biden and was eager to talk business, according to emails leaked from Hunter’s laptop. 

‘Your Dad just called me… He could use some positive news about his future earnings potential,’ Schwerin wrote to Hunter.

Schewrin was also handling Biden’s taxes that year 

Schwerin then visited the West Wing on August 22, 2011 to meet with Kellen Suber, an executive assistant to Biden just four days after Biden had left for a summit in China. 

Later that year, Hunter was in Hong Kong with Chinese tycoon Che Feng, the son-in-law of a high-ranking Chinese government official, the Post reported. 

The logs show Eric Schwerin, former president of Hunter's now-dissolved firm Rosemont Seneca, made 19 trips to the White House, nine of which included meetings with Biden, his staff and staff of Jill Biden from 2009 to 2015

By 2013, Hunter had formed his BGR Partners firm with Chinese businessman Jonathan Li, just as Schwerin made additional visits to the White House to meet Biden assistant Kathy Chung and Biden’s Director of Administration Faisal Amin. 

Wisconsin Senator Ron Johnson said the visits by Schwerin were unacceptable and agreed with Cruz’s call to investigate the Bidens. 

The White House did not immediately respond to DailyMail.com’s request for comment.  

‘Not everyone gets to meet the Vice President of the United States in the White House,’ Johnson told the Post. ‘The press should be asking why Hunter Biden’s business associates — like Eric Schwerin — had that privilege and were given access to the Obama White House. 

‘This is additional evidence that Joe Biden lied when he said he never discussed Hunter’s foreign business dealings. It’s well past time for the corporate media to demand the truth from Joe Biden. 

The corruption of Biden Inc. must be exposed, he added.’

Schewrin’s visits to the White House are the latest in a saga of scrutiny in Hunter’s business practices as he is under federal prosecution for alleged tax fraud, money laundering and illegal foreign lobbying.

Earlier this month, a grand jury heard from a witness who was asked about the identity of ‘the big guy’, mentioned in an email discussing a potential business deal with a Chinese firm.

The question was asked at a secret hearing in Wilmington, Delaware – although what the unidentified witness said in response has not been reported. 

It stems from a March 2017 email discussing a joint venture with a now-defunct Chinese energy company, CEFC China Energy Co. 

A former Hunter-associate previously claimed the phrase ‘the big guy’ referred to President Biden himself, sparking calls for him to face a conspiracy probe.

He has always denied all allegations of wrongdoing, with Hunter facing questions about why he was accepting work from energy firms despite no knowledge of the area. 

It follows the Washington Post and The New Times also confirming the authenticity of the contents of the laptop Hunter left at a Delaware repair show. 

Among the leaked files on his laptop are a raft of emails and documents showing Hunter’s dealings with Burisma, a Ukrainian gas firm. 

From May 2014, Burisma Holdings Ltd. was paying Hunter $83,333 a month to sit on its board, invoices on his abandoned laptop show, until he stepped down in April 2019 as his father’s presidential candidacy gained steam.

In emails from the hard drive Hunter and his business partners make apparent references to Joe’s involvement in a multi-million-dollar deal with Chinese government-linked oil giant CEFC.

Biden has maintained that he was not involved in his son's foreign business dealings, with the White House contending that Hunter has not broken any laws

In December 2020, a month after the election, Biden confirmed that his tax affairs were being examined. 

The author of the email, James Gilliar, a British business partner of Hunter’s, outlined the proposed percentage distribution of equity of the company.

Gilliar wrote: ’10 held by H for the big guy?’

Much speculation has swirled about ‘the big guy’, and whether it indicated Joe Biden himself was involved in Hunter’s dealings.

Biden stepped down as vice president in January 2017, and was a private citizen at the time of Gilliar’s email.

A former business associate of Hunter , Tony Bobulinski, came forward shortly before the 2020 election to say that Biden was indeed ‘the big guy’.

He told Fox News that, contrary to Joe Biden’s statements that he had nothing to do with his son’s business affairs, Hunter had ‘frequently referenced asking him for his sign-off or advice on various potential deals’ in China.

Bobulinski, who is reportedly a US Navy veteran, separately told Fox News’ Tucker Carlson that he had met on two occasions with Joe Biden to discuss business deals with China – the first time in May 2017.

Bobulinski’s claim was seized upon by Donald Trump, who invited him to be his guest at the final presidential debate in October 2020.

Since Joe Biden took office, the White House has batted away questions about Hunter, insisting he is a private citizen and questions should be directed to Hunter’s legal team.

Asked in April 2021 by CBS about the investigation, Hunter said: ‘I’m cooperating, completely. And I’m absolutely certain, 100 percent certain, that at the end of the investigation, that I will be cleared of any wrongdoing.’

Republicans have upped their calls to investigate Hunter Biden since the New York Times and Washington Post reported on its contents.

They say it shows collusion in the media that it has taken this long for the reports to come out.

Members have also insisted that if the President’s son’s business deals were brought to light earlier, the 2020 election could have gone a different way.

If the GOP takes control of the House in the 2022 midterms, which polls suggest they will, senior figures have promised to open committee investigations into Hunter Biden and hold hearings. 

President Biden’s Chief of Staff has said he didn’t believe Hunter had broken any laws with his foreign business dealings.

Former President Trump also last week called for Vladimir Putin to release dirt on Hunter.
