(Big League Politics) – Hunter Biden promised to provide juicy details regarding the business operations of a billionaire Russian oligarch under new FBI scrutiny to an American aluminum company in 2011. A mansion connected to Oleg Deripaska(owned by one of his relatives) was raided by the FBI earlier this week. Deripaska, a multibillionaire closely connected with the Russian government, has been previously prohibited from traveling to the United States on account of what federal authorities say is a connection to organized crime.
Biden offered to “provide Alcoa[a multinational aluminum corporation] with statistical analysis of political and corporate risks, elite networks associated with Oleg Deripaska (OD), Russian CEO of Basic Element company and United company RUSAL,” in emails obtained off of the the younger Biden’s laptop, surrendered to Delaware computer repairman John Paul Mac Isaac.
Biden demanded no less than $80,000 for briefing Alcoa on Deripaska’s elite networks and business connections, similar to an attempt to demand an exorbitant payment of $2 million in return for lobbying to unfreeze Libyan state funds locked in western banks around the same time. Biden’s company, Rosemont Seneca, would later offer his insider Russian knowledge to Alcoa at a discount price of $25,000.
Biden would go on to start his term as a board member of Burisma Holdings in 2014, three years after offering to provide Alcoa juicy information on Deripaska. His supposed insider knowledge of Mr. Deripaska’s business dealings and networks reveal the younger Biden’s insider connections into the notoriously corrupt world Russian and Ukrainian business world, unless he was simply lying about his knowledge of Deripaska to bilk Alcoa for money. The Department of the Treasury, at the direction of then-Secretary Steve Mnuchin and President Donald Trump, placed sanctions on Deripaska in 2018 for alleged exortion, racketeering, and money laundering.
New York Post writer Miranda Devine pointed out Biden’s connection to Deripaska in a Wednesday article, promising to further detail Hunter Biden’s extensive connections with corrupt post-Soviet oligarchs such as Deripaska in her upcoming book “Laptop From Hell.”
