In 2010, Sen. Bob Menendez (D-N.J.)’s chief of staff told Hunter Biden and his business partner Eric Schwerin that they had no access to regular communications with Joe Biden’s White House office. He declined the route and asked to invite then-Vice President Joe Biden to the annual economic summit, the email said. Unearthed from Hunter Biden’s laptop show.
The emails depict how close Hunter Biden and his colleagues were with Joe Biden, who claimed he never discussed business with his son.
According to the email, Mr. Schwerin contacted Hunter Biden on April 7, 2010, about a call he received from Mr. Menendez’s chief of staff, Danny O’Brien, regarding an event that Mr. Menendez wanted Joe Biden to attend. I sent an email to Mr. excavated By Marco Polo, a nonprofit organization. The email came days after O’Brien was turned down by Joe Biden’s official office.
May 4th, Joe Biden’s Schedule settings The ministry sent an email to Menedez and O’Brien declining their offer to attend the Spanish Council’s annual forum.
Dear Senator Menendez and Mr. O’Brien,
Thank you for inviting Vice President Biden to deliver the keynote address at the U.S.-Spain Council Annual Forum, July 23-25, 2010.
Vice President Biden cherishes every invitation he receives. However, due to his schedule constraints and the volume of requests, he has to decline most of them. It is truly regrettable that the Vice President will not be able to deliver the keynote speech at the forum.
Thank you for your interest in including the Vice President in your plans. Thank you for your understanding.

O’Brien sent by email On May 6, after O’Brien emailed the White House a revised request for Joe Biden to attend, Schwerin said:
Please see the revised request that I sent to the Office of the Vice President. Could you forward this to Hunter? Ambassador Solomon was visiting yesterday and will discuss this issue when he meets with the Vice President in Madrid later this week.
I got a call from Danny O’Brien. Senator Menendez is the US Chair of the above group. Spanish members include CEOs of major banks such as Banco Santander, Iberdrola and Spanish Railways. Solomont was a big supporter and JRB went to talk to the Boca group when he was a senator.
The annual meeting will be held in July in DC. The Spanish Minister of Foreign Affairs also attended. Danny would like to explore with you the possibility of having VP host an event at his NAVOB for groups. You may even appear at the hotel reception. Get more information and talk to Danny next week. I believe Danny called us because Solomon mentioned your interest in Spain.
That’s interesting. Let’s talk. I guess they don’t want to mention transatlantic flights in case they can’t deliver.
I hope you and your family are doing well. If you have a chance, could you call me? The Senator and I are still working to have the Vice President speak at the annual forum of the U.S.-Spain Council here in Washington, D.C., on July 24th.th.The Vice President’s staff informed us that a very busy schedule was expected when the forum was held on July 24th.th – Currently showing potential for some flexibility.
I would like to hear your reaction to the idea of the Vice President delivering the keynote address at the forum’s closing dinner. I would appreciate it if you could give me a call. My work number is 202-224-4712 and my cell number is 202-244-8674.
thank you. And please say hello to Bo.
The two agreed to talk about the meeting later. “Of course. If anything changes, call me tomorrow,” Hunter Biden responded.
Joe Biden does not appear to be attending the event.
