- Joe Biden entertained Mexican billionaires Carlos Slim and Miguel Alemán Velasco – his son Hunter’s business associates – in the vice president’s office in 2014
- While Joe was Vice President, he also flew Hunter and his partner Jeff Cooper on Air Force 2 to Mexico City in 2016
- Hunter had arranged to meet Alemán’s son for meetings over a ‘flippin gigantic’ business deal, according to Hunter’s emails
- The revelations, laid bare in photos and emails on Hunter’s abandoned laptop, suggest Joe’s claim that he never spoke about business with Hunter was false
- Hunter and Biden family friend Cooper hatched a plan in 2013 to invest in multiple businesses in Mexico and Latin America
- The White House has failed to respond to DailyMail.com’s requests for comment
He proposed the Ukrainian firm pay about $350,000 to access an oil ‘data room’ run by the Mexican Department of Energy, and laid out the structure of the proposed oil venture.
‘The first partnership will be the Alemán entity. This will consist of whomever Miguel determines is necessary to his family’s team,’ Hunter wrote. ‘I believe the current idea is that the Aleman Group will include a U.S. entity that is currently controlled by Jeff and Hunter.
‘I (in full disclosure) will most likely be granted equity (commensurate with Devon) from the Burisma side. I am also currently 50% of the equity of the U.S. Entity that conceivably would partner with the Alemán group.’
Cooper and Hunter were working business angles beyond oil. In one email from February 2015 Cooper describes a plan to pitch a payroll systems company they invested in, ePlata, to Pemex, Slim’s massive Mexican telecoms company Televisia, Walmart, Uber, and even the Mexican government.
‘Don’t forget Burisma and the non-Mexi folks too,’ Cooper added in his email to Hunter.
‘This shiznit is global, cabron.’
Joe Biden’s brother Jim also tried to cash in on the potential for bumper profits from Mexico’s huge privatization plans, but was apparently late to the party.
In May 2015, he emailed Hunter breathlessly that he had a ‘very real deal’ involving Slim and a US oil pipeline.
‘Have a very real deal with Pemex ( Carlos slim) need financing literally for a few days to a week,’ he wrote.
‘Have the seller (refinery /slims) and buyer major being delivered from pipeline in ( h/ USA) Nothing is simple but this comes very close. As always the devil is in the detail!
‘Any interest on the long skirts part? Need to know if there is any interest asap. Love you, u Jim.’
Hunter and his associates had already been planning to snare Slim as a business partner for years.
In a 2010 email a staffer at Hunter’s consultancy firm Rosemont Seneca suggested the then-richest man in the world as a potential client for a new ‘Global Risk’ advisory firm they were planning.
‘I think once we get past the test/beta phase of say 4-5 $250k projects, we target getting 5-8 clients who will pay us $1m-5m annually,’ the staffer, Neil Callahan, wrote in October 2010.
‘I don’t think any of those clients will be your typical Hedge Fund – it’s going to be Private Investors (i.e., Carlos Slim), SWFs, Select Corporations (i.e., Chevron, AON) and maybe a mega Hedge Fund.’…
His dealings with the Mexican billionaire became more involved that year. In March, Hunter wrote to Magnani to arrange a meeting with Slim and his son.
‘What dates for Carlos and Carlos were you thinking?’ he wrote. When Magnani gave him some options, the then-vice president’s son replied: ‘I’ll get you some dates later today. How are you? Wish i was back in Acapulco. Showed my Dad pictures and he wants to visit.’
‘He is welcome when ever he wants!!!!!!!!!’ a jubilant Magnani responded.
Hunter arranged a video conference with Slim in October – and it appears Joe Biden may have been involved in a second meeting or call.
‘The meeting will be on Friday in Mexico City if you can do a video conference in,’ Hunter’s Rosemont Seneca partner Eric Schwerin, wrote on October 5 2015.
A White House assistant responsible for the vice president’s diary, Kathy Chung, then emailed Hunter two days later with a list of dates from October 21 to November 6. Hunter replied: ‘Can we confirm 10/30 for Slim.’
‘Yes,’ Chung responded.
It is unclear what Slim’s ultimate involvement was in any dealings with Hunter, Burisma or Joe Biden, or what was discussed at the meetings.
In February 2016, Hunter wrote an email to Magnani revealing that in the midst of their Mexican oil deal, his father was flying him and his business partner on Air Force 2 to Mexico City, where he and Cooper would be sitting in on a meeting with the country’s president.
