According to a recent accusation made against President Joe Biden, while serving as vice president in the Obama administration, he kept in touch with his son via a satellite phone that was provided by a company owned by Hunter Biden.
The claim was made on the Fox News program “Sunday Morning Futures” on Sunday by Peter Schweizer of the Government Accountability Institute.
The House Oversight Committee’s investigation into Hunter Biden’s dealings has accelerated recently as a result of the discovery of an FBI document that claims an informant was informed that Joe Biden was involved in a bribery scandal in 2020. Hunter Biden’s dealings have been under investigation since 2020 when the contents of his former laptop computer became public.
According to the paper, the informant was informed that Joe and Hunter Biden had each been promised $5 million. The assertions have not been proven. According to Joe Biden, he never participated in any of his son’s business ventures.
Schweizer claimed on Sunday that the search for a connection between Joe and Hunter Biden had been successful.
“It’s interesting, what is the line of communications between Hunter Biden and his business partners and Joe Biden when he’s vice president of the United States? It’s not the government phone, it’s not Joe Biden’s personal phone,” Schweizer said.
“We know from the laptop that Hunter Biden’s business paid for a private phone line that Joe Biden used while he was vice president. It was from AT&T, it was $300 a month, it was a global phone where you could access somebody anywhere around the world,” he said.

Schweizer expressed his hope that the phone’s activity had been discovered by investigators.
“We shared that phone number and that account information with people in the House Oversight Committee. My hope is that they if they haven’t already, they will subpoena those records because I think it will give an indication on how tight the communication was,” he said.
Additionally, he offered some conjecture, speculating that “And that may be the phone, for example, that the Ukrainian, the Burisma executive, might have used in this allegation that he talked to Joe Biden in recorded conversations.”
The House Oversight Committee published a transcript of an interview with leaker Gary Shapley Jr., who disclosed the details of one significant message, last week.
“For example, we obtained a July 30th, 2017, WhatsApp message from Hunter Biden to Henry Zhao, where Hunter Biden wrote: ‘I am sitting here with my father and we would like to understand why the commitment made has not been fulfilled. Tell the director that I would like to resolve this now before it gets out of hand, and now means tonight. And, Z, if I get a call or text from anyone involved in this other than you, Zhang, or the chairman, I will make certain that between the man sitting next to me and every person he knows and my ability to forever hold a grudge that you will regret not following my direction. I am sitting here waiting for the call with my father,’” he said, according to the transcript.
Henry Zhao, the recipient of the message, was related to Chinese military intelligence, according to Breitbart, and he worked for the Chinese energy giant CEFC Energy.
On Sunday, Schweizer discussed the relationship with Zhao, according to Breitbart.
“We fixate on the criminal element of this, we also have to focus on the espionage element of this,” he said, noting that Zhao paid $5 million to Hunter Biden through “a company that he co-owned with the family of the minister of state security of China who’s in charge of the entire spy apparatus.”
“And you see that in every deal that Hunter Biden did in China. These individuals that are sending him money have ties to Chinese intelligence,” he said.
The host Maria Bartiromo then enquired as to the purpose of the money.
“The bulk of it, though, Peter, all this money that the Biden family has taken in, for what? What’s their business?” she said.
“The product was Joe Biden,” he said.
