(PatrioticPost.com)- Saturday, the New York Post reported that Hunter Biden’s business partner Eric Schwerin made frequent visits to the White House and other official offices during the time Joe Biden was Vice President, including one face-to-face meeting with the Big Guy himself.
The Post reviewed the Obama White House visitors logs and found that Schwerin’s name appears at least 19 times, including a November 17, 2010 West Wing meeting between Schwerin and then-Vice President Biden when Schwerin was the president of the now-dissolved Rosemont Seneca Partners.
In addition to meeting with the Big Guy, Schwerin met with a variety of close aides to both Joe and then-Second Lady Jill Biden, and always at key moments when Hunter was striking deals in foreign countries, including China.
Unsurprisingly, press secretary Jen Psaki was asked about these frequent visits during Monday’s press briefing.
And, again unsurprisingly, Psaki refused to comment
A reporter brought up the New York Post story and asked Psaki if she could explain why Eric Schwerin was given that level of access to the White House and what was discussed in those meetings.
But Psaki told the reporter she had no information on the visits and suggested that she would be happy to “check and see if we have any more comment.”
PBS's @LisaDNews: "[T]he @NYPost is reporting…there were 19 visits to the WH while the President was Vice President by Hunter Biden's business partners…Can you help us understand why [they] had access & what those…were about?"

On Tuesday, Psaki was asked again.
Fox News reporter Jacqui Heinrich asked the future MSNBC host if the President was still sticking to his claim that he never spoke with Hunter about his foreign business dealings and if, given the New York Post’s story, does Biden also say that he never spoke to any of Hunter’s business partners either.
Psaki said the president “maintains his same statements.” Then, she deployed the Obama-era “Dude, that was like two years ago” defense, telling the reporter that these visits were “more than 10 years ago” and she didn’t have any further information to add.

But on Wednesday, Heinrich again asked Psaki if Biden had ever spoken to Hunter’s business partners about his son’s foreign business dealings.
And again, Psaki refused to entertain the question, telling the reporter that what she had said the day before stands. She also flat-out stated that Biden “does not get involved in the business dealings of his son.”
