Hunter Told Devon Archer To Get a Burner Phone

While testifying before the House Oversight Committee last Monday, Hunter Biden’s business partner Devon Archer revealed that they frequently used burner phones for international calls before US cellphone companies provided global calling plans, the New York Post reported.

In a 2014 email from Hunter to Archer, the president’s son instructed Archer to purchase a burner phone from a CVS or 7-Eleven and said he would do the same.

Three days later, Archer met with then-Vice President Biden at the White House. A month later, Hunter joined the board of Ukrainian gas company Burisma Holdings.

Analysis of Hunter’s abandoned laptop shows that the younger Biden used at least 16 different private messaging apps, some of which were encrypted.

The transcript of Archer’s closed-door testimony was released late last week by the Oversight Committee.

In his testimony, Archer revealed that during phone meetings with his foreign business associates, Hunter put his father on speakerphone on more than 20 occasions.

Archer explained that Burisma placed Hunter on its board due to the appeal of what he described as the Biden “brand.” And what made the Biden “brand” so valuable to Bursima was then-Vice President Joe Biden. Archer explained that this is why Joe Biden was placed on the call with Burisma executives.

Archer said without its association with the Biden “brand,” the Ukrainian company would have gone out of business.

For years, Joe Biden has denied ever discussing Hunter’s foreign business deals with his son. In recent months, as the Oversight Committee uncovered more evidence, the White House has carefully shifted the goalposts to say that the president was “never in business with his son.”

After Archer’s closed-door testimony last Monday, White House Counsel’s Office spokesman Ian Sams claimed that Archer debunked many of the allegations from House Republicans. Sams claimed that the Republicans’ “much-hyped witness” had “never heard” Biden discuss business when he spoke to Hunter’s foreign business associates on the phone.
