A US construction company hired the brother of President Biden for secret negotiations with the Saudi government because of his relationship with the then vice president.
According to bombshell affidavits obtained by DailyMail.com, Saudi Arabia would not dare stiff the brother of Vice President Biden who would be crucial to the deal.
This comes after Joe Biden has long denied knowing about his family’s foreign business dealings – including those that involve James and Hunter Biden – and even gets mad when reporters confront him about it.
The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and Hill International negotiated a $140million settlement in 2012 involving Joe’s younger brother Jim, 73.
The documents show that Jim told a former US Treasury official working as a private investigator that he was hired to negotiate with the Saudis ‘because of his position and relationship’ to then-Vice President Joe Biden.
The former Treasury official, Thomas Sullivan, described his interview with Jim Biden about being hired to negotiate with Saudi Arabia in an affidavit.
Sullivan claimed Jim Biden told him: ‘Of course, the [Biden] name didn’t hurt’, and Jim’s wife Sara, who was present, allegedly said that Joe and his brother ‘told each other everything.’
A spat between US construction firm Hill and their former lawyers over a Saudi payout led to Jim Biden’s involvement in the Saudi deal.
From the 1980s to the present, Hill owed the Saudi government $140 million for their work building desalination plants.
DailyMail.com obtained a contract obtained in February 2011 showing Hill hired three law firms, Walker & Co., Lankford & Reed, and Poblete Tamargo, to help rake back the money.
The negotiations were part of a US government program aimed at settling unpaid debts to American firms for years.
According to Lankford & Reed, Hill also hired Jim around 2011 to settle a back-door $100 million case, but failed to pay the lawyers their 40% cut.
A troubling new report has just further revealed the extent of Joe Biden’s family’s compromised dealings with foreign entities. Specifically, it focuses on the illicit activities of Jim Biden, the President’s brother. He was hired earlier this year by a US construction company to secretly negotiate a deal with Saudi Arabia, and according to affidavits the Saudis weren’t willing to buck Jim because of his ties to Joe. As such, this brings into question Joe Biden’s commitment to transparency and whether he is fit to be president or else engaging in shady backdoor deals that are not in line with good governance. It remains unclear how compromised he truly is by foreign entities and whether he can meaningfully serve without infringing on his personal interests.
