First, I would like to point out that Hunter Biden forged the recommendation. But, Joe could have written it. But in a case between two known liars, how do you choose which one to believe. They need to get their hands on the note or off the computer if Hunter sent a copy to the boy’s family. If Joe wrote it, he has been compromised.
The boy was interested in going to Howard and that is where the recommendation was sent. It is not known if he went to Howard. That doesn’t matter. The fact that Biden may have written would be bad for Biden and this country. Jonathan Li, the CEO of BHR, is the father of the boy. Emails passed between the two, including one thanking Joe and Hunter for the recommendation.
In the email, dated January 3, 2017, Jonathan Li, the CEO of BHR, said:
“Gentlemen[sic], please find the attached resume of my son, Chris Li. He is applying to the following colleges for this year.”
Another email told Hunter which universities, he was interested in. They are Brown, Cornell, and New York University.
Erich Schwerin said to li:
“Hunter asked me to send you a copy of the recommendation letter that he asked his father to write on behalf of Christopher for Brown University.”
“The original is being FedExed to Dr. Paxson directly at Brown. It should be there by Tuesday at the latest (given Monday is a holiday here in the US). Let us know if you have any questions.”
The recipient of the letter is the president of Brown University.
In response to Schwerin’s message, Li replied: “Hi Eric, Just see the email. It is just great! Thank you very much! And Hunter, thank you very much too. All the best to you all.”
It is reportedly “unclear” if Li’s son attended or was even admitted to Brown University.
When asked about these emails, White House deputy press secretary Andrew Bates said, “We don’t comment on the laptop.”
However, he did not deny the laptop’s existence or repeat a previous claim from the White House that the laptop was “Russian disinformation.”
Did Joe do it?
