‘They have a great relationship, father and son. They speak everyday, and I witnessed that for 10 years,’ said Archer.
He emphasized that it’s ‘categorically false’ to say then-Vice President Joe Biden didn’t know about his son’s business deals at all.
Joe Biden ‘was aware of Hunter’s business, he met with Hunter’s business partners,’ Archer told Carlson during the second part of his tell-all interview released Friday.
The vice president wrote a letter that ‘illustrated he knew me,’ he continued. So it’s not ‘factually right’ to say Joe was unaware.
Archer shared a letter with Carlson that then-Vice President Joe Biden had written to him in 2011.
‘I apologize for not getting a chance to talk to you at the luncheon yesterday. I was having trouble getting away from hosting President Hu,’ Biden wrote referring to China’s then-president.
‘I hope I get a chance to see you again soon with Hunter. I hope you enjoyed the lunch. Thanks for coming,’ it read, followed up with a handwritten addition: ‘Happy you guys are together.’
Archer added that Joe may not have directly been looking at financial statements, but he was aware of his son’s dealings.
Hunter’s ex-partner said that he initially was working with Burisma to raise money for his real estate fund, but he was persuaded to join the energy company’s board by the then-president of Poland.
