A source familiar with the FBI’s investigation into Hunter Biden‘s business dealings tells The Chronicle that Bevan Cooney, his former business partner, is cooperating with investigators and has already provided two separate field offices with access to more than 26,000 emails.
Cooney has also made the emails available to Peter Schweizer, a senior contributor at Breitbart News, where they were first published this week in an exclusive investigation that details how the Democrat presidential nominee’s son and his colleagues used their access to the Obama-Biden administration to arrange private meetings for potential foreign clients and investors at the highest levels in the White House.
Cooney is asking for early release from prison in exchange for his cooperation with prosecutors and access to additional computer hard drives that he claims will provide evidence of Biden’s crimes.
Cooney is currently serving a federal prison sentence for his conviction on financial crimes connected to Biden and his other business partner, Devon Archer. Archer, who was also convicted by a jury in federal court, had his conviction vacated by a federal judge.
Archer’s original conviction was recently reinstated by an appellate court, which overruled the lower court judge’s decision to vacate it. He is now awaiting sentencing.
Cooney provided written authorization to access his Gmail account. Cooney provided the password, username, and written authorization to publish the emails. Schweizer calls Cooney the “fall guy” for the Bidens’ corruption.
Biden and his partners regularly secured meetings with senior White House officials in November 2011 for senior members of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). Those meetings included a secret meeting with then-Vice President Joe Biden. That meeting was excluded from his public schedule.
Cooney says that he owns hard drives that contain more documents that that illustrate the relationship between Hunter Biden and the ex-wife of the former Moscow mayor, Yelene Baturina.
Baturina is alleged to have funneled more than $3.5 million to Hunter Biden through his investment vehicle, Rosemont Seneca, and Bak USA, a now-defunct firm that assembled computer tablets in downtown Buffalo from 2015 to 2019. That firm was principally owned by billionaire Tom Golisano.
“Many of the emails are the business partners discussing, without Hunter’s participation, what Hunter’s role is in all of this,” Schweizer explains. “What’s very clear is Hunter brings no money to the table, but he is considered the avenue to the administration.”
“There are emails that talk about how they are going to do business deals where they want to get union pension money and that Hunter is going to leverage the relationships that his dad has with public employee unions to get that money,” he explains.
