Joe Biden was complicit in crimes including tax evasion, using nonpublic information for financial gain, and violating the Presidential Records Act, the UK's Daily Mail reported on Monday, citing a 634-page report on the contents of Hunter Biden's laptop by the watchdog group Marco Polo.
.com reported on Oct. 20
, Marco Polo detailed accusations of 459 crimes allegedly committed by Hunter Biden including prostitution offenses, distribution and possession of drugs, defrauding government agencies, illegal foreign lobbying, and money laundering.
The Daily Mail, in its Monday report
, cited information from the "laptop from hell" published by Marco Polo founder and Trump White House adviser Garrett Ziegler which claims that Joe Biden is complicit in tax evasion, violations of the Presidential Records Act and the Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA), and using nonpublic information from a government job for financial gain.
The six incidents involving Joe Biden listed in the Marco Polo report span from June 2010 to December 2016.
In a May 2016 email highlighted in the report, John S. Flynn, a senior advisor to then-Vice President Biden, sent Joe Biden a schedule for his call with then-Ukrainian president Petro Poroshenko – and copied Hunter Biden in the message.
Hunter was on the board of Ukrainian gas company Burisma at the time.
"Boss–8.45am prep for 9am call with Pres Poroshenko. Then we're off to Rhode Island," the email said, and attached a Microsoft Word document with a briefing.
Marco Polo claims that copying Hunter on Joe Biden's schedule constitutes a use of nonpublic information from a government job for financial gain, which allegedly violates section 2635 of the U.S. Code of Federal Regulations.
Flynn sent the message to an alias email address Joe Biden used under the name "Robert Peters."
The report claims Joe Biden also "illegally utilized his private, alias email address" under another pseudonym "Robin Ware" in a 2012 conversation with Antony Blinken, the current Secretary of State who was then National Security Advisor to Biden.
The Presidential Records Act requires the vice president to turn over all official records including government-related communications to the National Archives and Records Administration for preservation. It is unclear whether that occurred with emails on Joe Biden's private addresses.
Marco Polo claims that Joe Biden was involved in attempted tax evasion by failing to declare to the IRS the alleged gift of having thousands of dollars of his personal bills paid by his son's company.
The report points to June 2010 emails from Hunter's business partner in his Rosemont Seneca consultancy, Eric Schwerin, which list $5,227.09 of bills including home maintenance and insurance.
"I am not sure which ones are a priority and which should get paid out of 'my' account,' " Schwerin wrote.
Another June 2010 email shows money flowing between Hunter and Joe Biden's accounts.
Schwerin wrote: "Your Dad's Delaware tax refund check came today. I am depositing it in his account and writing a check in that amount back to you since he owes it to you."
