Hunter’s Text Admitting To Giving Biden Half His Salary Resurface

Hunter Biden’s text message where he admitted to giving half his salary to his father resurfaced on Wednesday after Democrats tried to deny President Joe Biden received payments from Hunter’s foreign deal. 

The text message emerged after House Republicans on the House Oversight Committee released a memo showing that the Bidens received $20 million from Russia, Ukraine, and Kazakhstan while President Joe Biden was vice president.

Politico released an article echoing the Democrats’ new talking point dismissing credible allegations that Joe Biden received money from his family’s foreign business. 

Former Biden White House official, Kate Berner, shared the politico article on Twitter, claiming that the memo doesn’t show a direct payment to Joe Biden.” 

Abigail Marone —communications director for Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO)— hit back at Berner’s Tweet, citing Hunter’s infamous message. 

“Now might be a good time to remember Hunter Biden has complained about Joe Biden forcing Hunter to give him half his salary,” Marone wrote.

The text was a message Hunter sent his daughter Naomi in 2019 and was part of the first son’s private communication recovered from his “laptop from hell.” Hunter’s message to his daughter showed the first son complaining that Joe Biden forced him to pay him half his salary. 

“I love all of you. But I dont recieve any respect and that’s fine I guess -works for you apparently. I hope you all can do what I did and pay for everything for this entire family Fro (sic) 30 years. It’s really hard. But don’t worry unlike Pop I won’t make you give me half your salary,” Hunter wrote. 

The text message is one of the clearest indications, alongside an FBI confidential human source file, showing that the president benefited financially from his family’s foreign business. 

According to previous reports on Political Intel, the FBI file showed that Biden coerced Ukrainian energy firm Burisma’s top executive to pay him and Hunter a $10 million bribe. 

Democrats have, however, continued to deny all allegations that Joe Biden financially benefited from his family’s business.
