A stunning report from the Daily Mail on Friday linked the scandal-plagued Hunter Biden to financing a “US military ‘bioweapons’ research program in Ukraine.”
Joe Biden’s son has been in the headlines over the last year or two for multiple scandals, such as his being paid tens of thousands of dollars a month from the Ukrainian Burisma gas company – even though he had no industry experience.
When he did have was a father who was vice president at that time for Barack Obama and in charge of U.S.-Ukraine policy. And Joe Biden later ordered the Ukrainian government to fire a prosecutor looking into corruption at Burisma.
But details about payments to the Biden family from Chinese and Russian interests, Hunter Biden’s dealings with prostitutes, and many other topics, have been revealed through a laptop he abandoned at a repair shop, which was turned over to the FBI, which is now investigating Hunter Biden’s taxes and international business dealings.
The Daily Mail, with access to a copy of that hard drive, said that the Russian government’s claims that “Hunter Biden helped finance a U.S. military ‘bioweapons’ research program in Ukraine” “may well be true.”
That, the report said, is according to “emails and correspondence obtained by DailyMail.com from Hunter’s abandoned laptop.”
The report explained “the emails show Hunter helped secure millions of dollars of funding for Metabiota, a Department of Defense contractor specializing in research on pandemic-causing diseases” and he also “introduced Metabiota to an allegedly corrupt Ukrainian gas firm, Burisma, for a ‘science project’ involving high biosecurity level labs in Ukraine.”
The report charged Hunter Biden and some friends “invested $500,000 in Metabiota through their firm Rosemont Seneca Technology Partners,” and they also “raised several million dollars of funding for the company from investment giants including Goldman Sachs.”
It was the commander of the Russian Nuclear, Biological and Chemical Protection Forces who recently alleged there was a “scheme” involving the U.S. government agencies and Ukrainian biological objects.
Intelligence experts had described the claims as a propaganda ploy to justify Vladimir Putin’s invasion of Ukraine.
“Although Metabiota is ostensibly a medical data company, its vice president emailed Hunter in 2014 describing how they could ‘assert Ukraine’s cultural and economic independence from Russia,'” which the report described as an odd plan for a biotech firm.
It said Metabiota actually works with the Department of Defense on diseases that could be used as weapons.
The report said in April 2014, Metabiota vice president Mary Guttieri sent to Hunter Biden that message about Ukraine’s “independence.”
Days later, “Burisma executive Vadym Pozharskyi wrote to Hunter Biden responding to his presentation of a “science project” involving Burisma and Metabiota in Ukraine.”
And federal government records reveal the DoD gave an $18.4million contract to Metabiota between February 2014 and November 2016, with $307,091 earmarked for “Ukraine research projects.”
The report noted, “Emails and defense contract data reviewed by DailyMail.com suggest that Hunter had a prominent role in making sure Metabiota was able to conduct its pathogen research just a few hundred miles from the border with Russia.”
The publication suggested Metabiota worked in Ukraine for Black & Veatch, a defense contractor with ties to the military, toward secure labs in Ukraine where scientists reviewed killer diseases.
Just weeks ago U.S. officials warned Congress “Russian forces may be seeking to gain control of these ‘biological research facilities’, prompting fears that deadly and even engineered pathogens could fall into Russian hands.”
The Daily Mail reported, “Former senior CIA officer Sam Faddis, who has reviewed emails on Hunter’s laptop, told DailyMail.com that the offer to help assert Ukraine’s independence was odd for a biotech executive.
It was during this time that Hunter Biden was being paid at estimated $83,000 a month to be on Burisma’s board.
Faddis described the intersection of Hunter Biden, Metabiota, Ukraine and more a worrying revelation.
“His father was the vice president of the United States and in charge of relations with Ukraine. So why was Hunter not only on the board of a suspect Ukrainian gas firm, but also hooked them up with a company working on bioweapons research?” Faddis said.
He said Russia was using the circumstances for “propaganda,” but that “doesn’t change the fact that there does seem to be something that needs to be explored here.”
The report noted Metabiota also “has close ties to the Wuhan Institute of Virology, suspected to be the source of the COVID-19 outbreak.”
WND reported just a day earlier that the Republican party has begun setting the stage for a full-blown review of the scandals involving Hunter Biden, and perhaps those linked to Joe Biden.
In an interview on John Solomon Reports, Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif., confirmed that GOP lawmakers are dispatching letters to Twitter, Facebook, the New York Times and “dozens” of former U.S. intelligence officials.
The letters instruct them to preserve any and all evidence of their efforts to suppress 2020 news reports about Hunter Biden’s laptop and business dealings.
Those stories first were broken by the New York Post, but social media industry leaders, along with legacy players like the Times, insisted they were Russian “disinformation” and suppressed them.
A subsequent Media Research Institute survey later revealed that had those accurate reports been more widely distributed, enough voters would have withheld their support from Joe Biden that he would have lost the 2020 election.
Those reports, of course, were verified through a variety of ways, and now even the Times has admitted to their accuracy.
