A Fox News Digital report has shown that a client of Hunter Biden’s now-defunct firm had made multiple visits to the White House during the Obama administration, during which they met with then-Vice President Biden and a top Biden aide. It was further noted that they had spent significant time with Biden in a casual meeting in New York City which had been arranged by Hunter Biden.
Nicolas Rohatyn, a Biden donor and the founder and CEO of The Rohatyn Group, reportedly had several meetings with Biden in the White House during the Obama Administration. At the time Hunter’s now-defunct Rosemont Seneca Partners (RSP) oversaw his hedge fund accounts. Reportedly Rohatyn and Hunter Biden had first started working together in March 2010, when Hunter and Eric Schwerin, RSP’s then-president, had invited him to the Mexico State Dinner at the White House which was held on May 19th of that year.
Schwerin had asked Hunter Biden whether Rohatyn should be invited to the event after Evan Ryan, President Biden’s current White House cabinet secretary who at the time was his assistant, had verified that they could have some spots at the event. Schwerin also proceeded to suggest that they should check whether Carlos Slim, a Mexican billionaire, was on the list. Hunter Biden was trying to arrange to do business with Slim.
On July 14, 2010, Rohatyn attended a policy dinner in New York City hosted by Hunter and Chris Heinz, which was attended by “NY Governor David Paterson and Pennsylvania Treasurer Rob McCord,” as well as “CFO of the NY State United Teachers, Bert Lesniewski, and Chris Chafe.”
