Weird how the MSM all of a sudden cares enough to report on Hunter’s problems.
Weird how all of this Hunter Biden news is coming out in the mainstream media after the election.
NBC News first reported (granted on a Friday night) that an email brings up “fresh questions” about Hunter’s tax problems like not reporting $400,000 income from Burisma.
From NBC News:
Hunter Biden’s former business partner sent him an email in 2017 saying he did not disclose on his tax returns $400,000 in income from the Ukrainian natural gas company where he sat on the board, according to a copy of the email obtained by NBC News.
The message from Eric Schwerin, then president of Rosemont Seneca Partners, says Hunter Biden would need to “amend” his 2014 returns to reflect the “unreported” income, according to the copy of the email.
“In 2014 you joined the Burisma board and we still need to amend your 2014 returns to reflect the unreported Burisma income,” says the email dated Jan. 16, 2017.
Hunter revealed last week that the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Delaware has been investigating his tax affairs…since 2018!
NBC News said it could not verify the email or authenticate it.
Fox News reported Monday morning that its reporters looked at the same email, dated January 16, 2017. The network also said it “could not verify its authenticity.”
Both networks reached out to Scherwin and Hunter’s attorney George Mesires. Neither has responded to NBC or Fox.
Fox provided more information in the email:
“In 2014, you joined the Burisma board and we still need to amend your 2014 returns to reflect the unreported Burisma income,” Scherwin wrote to Hunter Biden. “That is approximately $400,000 extra so your income in 2014 was closer to $1,247,328.”
The email stated that in 2013 Hunter Biden’s taxes reported “$833,614 in income,” in 2014 “your taxes reported $847,328 in income. (To be amended at $1,247,328),” and in 2015 reported $2,478,208 in income.”
Scherwin described Hunter Biden’s income in 2013 and 2014 as “normal years” when his income “was based pretty much solely on income from Rosemont Seneca and Boies.”
Scherwin went on to explain Hunter Biden’s “increased income in 2015,” noting that he collected “$166,666 from Burnham (for RSA), $216,000 from Boies, $365,403 from Owasco (for RSA), $300,000 one time payment from Eudora (for the 1/3 of CitizensRx).”
“The above represents all the cash you received directly,” Scherwin wrote. “In addition, you reported $1,000,000 of income that all went to RSB and you reported $188,616 in income that also went to RSB.”
He added: “You didn’t receive this in cash and it is in reality ‘phantom income.’”
