(Joshua Paladino, Headline USA) New evidence has emerged that in 2012 then-Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter Biden collaborated with politicians, businessmen and foreign governments to secure an online gambling deal in Latin America.
The whistleblower who brought the information forward reportedly identified himself or herself to the Senate and to news outlets but has remained anonymous to the public, the Daily Mail reported.
The informant claimed that Joe and Hunter had a conference call in 2012 with businessman Jeff Cooper, then-Senate majority leader Harry Reid and his son, Key Reid, to discuss their involvement in Ocho Gaming.
Cooper said the call never happened. He called it a “complete fabrication.”
Hunter and Cooper owned an online gambling company called Ocho Global, which was worth about $30 million in 2011.
Joe Biden allegedly participated in the phone call as an active business partner, though the whistleblower described him as “silent” in that he was not a public face of the deal.
“He wasn’t passive, he was talking about it,” the anonymous source said. “If I had to describe him, he was like a member of the Board of Directors.”
Joe asked questions that demonstrated knowledge about the company’s revenue, software and government relations. In particular, Joe Biden congratulated Cooper on getting gambling licenses from Peru’s government.
“With the direct observations I had, it’s obvious Joe was participating in the business,’ the whistleblower said.
The whistleblower does not have access to the recorded phone call.
The Daily Mail said it verified the whistleblower’s involvement in Cooper’s company through government and corporate filings and photographic evidence from the source.
This whistleblower adds a new layer to the Joe-Hunter corruption saga.
Tony Bobulinski, a former business partner with Hunter, revealed details about Joe’s involvement in a deal with CEFC, a Chinese oil company.
Joe Biden, in those allegations, was also described frequently as the “chairman” and “figurehead” of the Biden family’s alleged nefarious and criminal dealings.
