Hunter Biden allegedly demanded an annual retainer of $2 million to help unfreeze Libyan assets while his father, Joe Biden, was in office.
Emails reportedly expose the 51-year-old's request for money in exchange for helping recover billions that were frozen by the Obama administration — when Hunter's dad was Vice President.
Business Insider shared the emails, showing the first one dating all the way back to January 28, 2015.
In written correspondence addressed to Sheikh Mohammed al-Rahbani, Democratic donor Sam Jauhari made it clear what Hunter allegedly requested.
"Per phone conversation I met with #2 son. He wants $2 per year retainer +++ success fees. He wants to hire his own people - it can be close circle of people for confidentiality. His dad is deciding to run or not," Jauhari allegedly wrote.
"His positives are he is Chairman of UN World Food Program, son of #2 who has Libya file, access to State, Treasury, business partner SofS [Secretary of State] J. [John] Forbes K [Kerry] son and since he travels with dad he is connected everywhere in Europe and Asia where M. Q. [Muammar Qaddafi] and LIA [Libya Investment Authority] had money frozen. He said he has access to highest level in PRC [China], he can help there," he added before laying out his past with substance abuse as a potential problem.
"His negatives are that he is alcoholic, drug addict - kicked [out] of U.S. Army for cocaine, chasing low class hookers, constantly needs money-liquidity problems and many more headaches."
As Business Insider points out, some of Jauhari's written allegations about Hunter don't add up.
The "$2 per year retainer" that was mentioned in the email, actually meant $2 million, according to someone who claims they were part of the negotiations.
"My recollection was that anything that had to do with Hunter started at $2 million," they told the outlet.
There was also an email dated February 26, 2016, which showed they were still in talks with Hunter.
Al-Rahbani's attorney claims his client "has no recollection of seeing those emails contemporaneously" and "knows to a certainty that he never spoke to and has no recollection of talking about Hunter Biden."
It's worth noting that despite the alleged email correspondence, the deal never seemed to go through.
