(New York Post) Hunter Biden’s abandoned laptop is filled with contracts and agreements between him and foreign business partners that could shine new light on his business dealings, and potentially implicate his father, insiders around the first son told The Post.
Hundreds of documents are littered among the tens of thousands of emails contained on the laptop — but the files were not downloaded onto the device, and investigators cannot open most of them.
During his father’s vice presidency and after, Hunter Biden and his family made millions of dollars from foreign sources trading on the family name, according to whistleblowers and bank records unearthed by the House Oversight Committee.
Through much of the wheeling and dealing — Hunter Biden was a crack addict and alcoholic.
His web of businesses first came to light after a series of New York Post stories in October 2020 sourced from a laptop he abandoned at a Delaware computer repair shop.
Hunter Biden joined the board of Burisma, a Ukrainian energy company, in April 2014.

During his father’s vice presidency, he netted $83,333 per month.
Hunter’s business ties to Burisma are elaborated on agreements that cannot be opened from the hard drive.
Hunter Biden and his fellow Burisma Board member Devon Archer were tagged on a November 2015 email from Eric Schwerin, the head of Hunter Biden’s investment firm Rosemont Seneca, to Vadym Pozharsky, the chief financial officer of Burisma.

“Attached is the agreement executed by BS,” he said using a shorthand for Burisma’s lobbying firm Blue Star Strategies.
“I know Devon gave you the immediate scope of work that BS is working on between now and the end of December. We expect a download on the meetings, etc. that they have made so far and will get that to you shortly,” Schwerin said.
As a recipient of this email, the file would presumably still be in Archer’s possession.

Archer is scheduled to speak to the House Oversight Committee on Monday and is expected to testify that Hunter Biden put his father on the phone with business partners more than two dozen times.
“When Hunter takes money via an executed agreement from Burisma . . . or some other some company and delivers a connection to Joe Biden that should be a felony violation of the Foreign Agents Registration Act,” said Jim Hanson, a global consulting executive who has studied the hard drive.
Sources close to GOP Oversight Committee members say Republicans are interested in sizing up Archer as a potential impeachment witness if and when the party decides to pull the trigger and impeach President Biden.
“It’s our job to gather the facts, and documents like this are important for us to get to the bottom of,” said Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio), who sits on the committee.
In March 2016 Hunter Biden and business partners Rob Walker and James Gilliar circulated a cryptic document called “H to Zang Draft.”
The H stood for Hunter, while the Zang almost certainly represented Jianjun Zang — an executive director of the Chinese energy giant CEFC.
“Take a look and let me know. Very simple. Once ok’d. I’ll send to Joan to sign?” Rob Walker wrote to Hunter.
Joan Peugh was Hunter Biden’s office manager.
