Unearthed text messages show President Joe Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, calling his stepmother and current First Lady Jill Biden a “vindictive moron” and things that are much worse.
The texts show Hunter Biden blasting his stepmother following a family argument in late 2018. In one text he sent to the widow of his brother, whom Hunter Biden was dating at the time, he called Jill Biden “selfish” and “entitled.”
“F*** my stepmother for always being as much of a selfish silly entitled c*** as you,” he wrote to Hallie Biden as their brief relationship began to deteriorate.
In another text that he sent to his uncle and frequent business partner James Biden, Hunter recalled an argument with Jill in which he blasted her with a barrage of insults.
“And you do know the drunkest I’ve ever been is still smarter than you could ever even comprehend and you’re a shut [sic] grammar teacher that wouldn’t survive one class in an ivy graduate program,” he wrote. “So go f*** yourself Jill let’s all agree I don’t like you any more than you like me.”
The Hunter Biden legal saga took another turn this week.
Newly released emails from Hunter’s laptop show he described his longtime business partner Eric Schwerin as a “close confidant and counsel” to then-Vice President Joe Biden, raising more questions about whether Joe Biden knew or was involved with any of Hunter’s shady business deals while he was the vice president.
In an email thread from February 2014, Schwerin asked Hunter to review a letter of recommendation he had written on behalf of Joe Biden.
“Can you take a quick look at the attached? I am going to send it to your Dad (via Kathy) tomorrow and wanted to make sure you think this isn’t too over the top and that you think your Dad would be comfortable sending it,” wrote Schwerin, who served as the president of Hunter’s Rosemont Seneca Partners investment fund, which has now been resolved.
The New York Post reported:
The attached file was titled “JRB CFR Rec,” an apparent reference to the Council on Foreign Relations. The email, posted online by the nonprofit research group Marco Polo USA, also named Joe Biden’s longtime executive assistant, Kathy Chung.
Hunter responded to the message on Feb. 22, telling Schwerin the letter was “good” before suggesting that he “tone down the ‘he and my son’ parts.”
“I think it’s better to just focus on the fact that you have been a close confidant and counsel to him and just say somewhere something like ‘as a business partner with my son at Rosemont Seneca…,’” Hunter said.
Schwerin replied a few hours later, saying: “That was one part I was unsure of — was trying to make sure the reader understood there was a real relationship that it wasn’t just a letter he was writing for a friend of a friend or something.”
Hunter Biden responded to Eric Schwerin’s email, suggesting that he “tone down the ‘he and my son’ parts.”
He added: “I already sent it to Kathy but not sure she gave it to him yet so I will make those changes.”
Biden has repeatedly insisted he has “never spoken” with Hunter about the family’s overseas interests.

Late last week, it was revealed that Schwerin is “cooperating” with a key House committee’s investigation.
“He is cooperating with us,” House Oversight and Accountability Committee Chairman James Comer (R-Ky.) said Thursday evening during an interview on the “Just the News, No Noise” television show.
“His attorneys and my counsel are communicating on a regular basis. Now, I feel confident that he’s going to work with us, and provide us with the information that we have requested,” Comer said. “I think that Schwerwin is going to be a very valuable witness for us in this investigation.”
As a result, Comer has announced that his committee will not delay any further and will begin issuing subpoenas right away.
“We know individuals, many are cooperating with us now, but others, not so much,” he said. “We’re going to start subpoenaing people in the private sector, we’re going to start subpoenaing financial institutions to get us the information. And then we’ll go from there.”
Comer also noted that refusing to assist in the investigation undercuts Hunter Biden’s claims that he doesn’t have anything to hide.
“But we all know that this family was involved in influence peddling. And this administration is doing everything in its ability to try to block oversight,” he continued.
Comer noted that his committee is currently in a struggle to obtain information from both the White House and the Biden family. However, the cooperation of Schwerin is considered a significant breakthrough that may encourage other critical witnesses to come forward and cooperate.
“That’s a very positive development, I believe that’s going to lead to a few others coming forward,” he said.
