Emails viewed by Fox News have revealed that divorce lawyers for Hunter Biden and his ex-wife Kathleen Buhle were aware of money Biden received from a "Romania deal," going against Buhle’s previous claims that she had her "head buried in the sand" in regards to her ex-husband’s finances.
In emails from 2016 and 2017 from Hunter Biden’s laptop, Buhle and Biden’s divorce lawyers indicated that they were aware of payments from a "Romania deal," and discussed how it should be split.
A December 15, 2016 email from Rebekah Sullivan, who was representing Buhle in the divorce, expressed her frustration to Biden’s lawyer Sarah Mancinelli.
"On the disclosures, help me understand why it is taking so long to get this basic information. Hunter's office confirmed to Kathleen a deposit of more than $120,000 into Hunter's TD account, as funds from the ‘Romania deal,'" Sullivan wrote.
"There is no reason to continue to delay providing us the TD account statements and all expenses since the end of the last statement," Sullivan added. "It is more than fair to ask for Hunter immediately to provide Kathleen with half of the $120,000, and immediate disclosure with respect to his TD account."
Mancinelli forwarded the email to Biden, who wrote, "Rebekah I’m sure is aware that Kathleen and the girls have access to the TD card and have been using it regularly ($2k+)for Hue’s in Gtown just last week. Also why do you characterize our finances as dire?"
"And why are we still not getting all of Kathleen’s accounts? And it’s not true that my office confirmed the TD deposit. Only two people knew of that and I was one of them. The only way she possibly knew of that is she has access to all of my texts and emails."
Mancinelli emailed Sullivan back a month later after consulting with Biden and his business parter Eric Schwerin, who provided edits for Mancinelli’s draft of the email to Buhle’s lawyer.
Biden gave the green light after Schwerin’s edits, with Mancinelli writing in the email that she proposes an "interim support and bill paying arrrangement, which included that Buhle receive a portion of funds from a "Romania" payment Biden expected.
"Our primary goal with the proposal below is to project for Kathleen the payments that Hunter expects to receive this month and how those funds will be allocated — including funds for retainer payments," Mancinelli wrote. "Hunter believes a $60,000 ‘Romania’ related payment may come in before the end of January."
"Should that payment be received, Owasco, P.C. would pay out a bonus in the amount of $60,000 and there would be $34,000 remaining after taxes," she said.
$10,000 of the remaining funds would go to Buhle directly, Mancinelli proposed, with another $10,000 going to her legal retainers. $10,338 would go to Biden, and the remainder going towards outstanding debts.
Sullivan said in a return email on January 17, 2017 that Biden should get none of the payment, and that $18,500 should go toward Buhle’s retainers.
A January 16 email from Schwerin to Biden revealed that the First Son received "$1,295,000 from Owasco, P.C. (representing Burisma and any Romania Payments)."
In June of 2022, Buhle claimed that she "had my head pretty deeply buried in the sand" and "barely understood" Biden’s business dealings.
In a Wednesday press conference, House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer revealed that Buhle and several other Biden family members had received foreign money, and Hunter Biden received over $1 million from Romania.
A report released by the House Oversight and Reform Committee on Wednesday revealed that Romanian tycoon Gabriel "Puiu" Popoviciu, who was facing criminal charges relating to corruption and bribery, hired Biden in 2016 to advise him in the case.
Popoviciu was sentenced to seven years in prison in August 2017.
Then-Vice President Biden held a meeting at the White House on September 28, 2015 with Romanian President Klaus Iohannis, and within five weeks of the meeting, Bladon Entreprises Limited, a Cyprus-based company allegedly owned by Popoviciu, started making deposits into the bank account of Robinson Walker, LLC, totaling over $3 million from November 2015 to May 2017.
One transaction from early November 2016 gave Robinson Walker, LLC, owned by Hunter Biden’s longtime business partner Rob Walker, $183,329,29 from Bladon Entreprises Limited. Hunter Biden received $122,179 from Robinson Walker, LLC, a few weeks before Buhle’s lawyer’s email referencing the "Romania deal."
