Report: Biden Boys Involved in Gambling South of the Border

Report: Biden Boys Involved in Gambling South of the Border

Yet another scandal might engulf the already-disgraced Biden administration if the latest from the Daily Mail is true.

Joe Biden was up to his wattles in an offshore gambling operation from which he stood to earn millions in profits — while he was vice president under President Barack Hussein Obama. Involved in the get-rich-quick scheme, which involved the government of Peru, were the late Senator Harry Reid of Nevada and his son, Key.

The project never took off, the Mail reported, but Gamblin’ Joe was involved nonetheless. The gambling operation was be at least the third major business scandal involving Biden and his son.

Conference Call Discusses Big Bucks

A source familiar with a conference in which the Biden Boys discussed the illicit operation spilled the beans to the Mail.

“The informant says they were party to a 2012 conference call involving then-VP Joe, Hunter, 52, his business partner Jeff Cooper, 53, late Senate majority leader Harry Reid and his son Key Reid, 48, who was also in business with Hunter,” the newspaper reported:

The Spring 2012 call was about Hunter, Key and Jeff’s new venture into online gambling in Latin America, the whistleblower said, adding that Joe was active on the call discussing details of the business, and appeared to be involved as a “silent partner”.

“He wasn’t passive, he was talking about it. If I had to describe him, he was like a member of the Board of Directors,” the source said.

Indeed, passive doesn’t come close to what appears to have been the then-veep’s role in the gambling company. It sounds more like he was the “Big Guy,” just as he was in Hunter’s business deals with Chinese Reds.

When the four men were on the phone, “Joe asked about revenue projections, when the company’s software would be ready, and congratulated Cooper on securing gambling licenses from the Peruvian government,” as the Mail described the call:

“With the direct observations I had, it’s obvious Joe was participating in the business,” they said.

The alleged call was not recorded, but has independently verified the whistleblower was closely involved in Cooper’s company for years, including at the time of the conference call, and was in a position to be involved in discussions on Ocho’s business development.

Aspects of the source’s story were verified using published government records and corporate filings. The whistleblower also provided documents, emails and photographs corroborating their account of their involvement with Cooper and Hunter’s company.

Cooper told the men about his links to the top echelon of the Peruvian government and that his “team” would get the gambling licenses they needed to work in the South American country.

“There was no attempt by anybody to get off the phone,” the source told the Mail:

They were all still there. Joe Biden was on the phone, Harry Reid was on the phone.

“One of the things [Joe] centered on a lot was when the company would become profitable,” the whistleblower said. “Joe, in particular, was centered on the returns that would be expected in the family coffers.”

Emails and other documents back up the Mail’s account.

The story is more evidence that Biden lied when he said he knew nothing of his son’s business ventures.

“Bolstering the whistleblower’s claims, texts from Hunter’s laptop indicate that Joe, Hunter and Cooper discussed foreign business dealings,” the Mail reported:

On June 15, 2018 Joe texted his son: ‘Call I’m with Jeff Cooper’, and later wrote ‘Jeff asked for you. Wants to do some work with you. Love Dad.’

Cooper said the the source’s story about the phone call is a “complete fabrication.”

China, Ukraine Scandals

The story is credible because of Biden’s record of self-dealing in global business ventures that involved his sex- and drug-addicted son.

For Cooper isn’t the only one of Hunter’s biz pals with whom Biden was involved while vice president. Tony Bobulinski, another of Hunter’s former associates, showed that Biden was the “Big Guy” in an email from Hunter’s laptop. That missive said Joe Biden’s share of the loot from a deal Red China was 10 percent.

As well, Biden pushed Ukraine to fire a prosecutor who was investigating the Burisma Holdings energy company, which inexplicably hired Hunter to serve on its board despite his complete lack of knowledge about the energy business.

Biden warned Ukraine that it would not get $1 billion in U.S. loan guarantees if it did not fire the prosecutor.
