A journalist claims that when he dialed a cell phone number found in a trove of Hunter Biden documents, he reached President Joe Biden.
Reporter John Solomon made the claim in a segment of Real America’s Voice that was posted to Twitter Wednesday. Solomon did not produce an audio tape of the call or anything else to substantiate the claim.
“There had been some documents that law enforcement had gotten to other media. One of those documents got leaked to me, and it had a cell phone number that Hunter Biden was paying for, so I figured this was my chance. I’ve been trying to get fair comment from Hunter Biden, so I’m gonna call the cell phone!” Solomon said.
“So I called the cell phone, and guess who picked up the phone? Joe Biden!” he said.
“Joe Biden! Boy was he shocked when he got — when he picked up the phone and found out it was me. He hung up pretty quickly!” he said.
On Sunday, Peter Schweizer of the Government Accountability Institute claimed that during the time he was vice president in the Obama administration, Joe Biden used a satellite phone paid for by a business operated by Hunter Biden.
“It’s interesting. What is the line of communications between Hunter Biden and his business partners and Joe Biden when he’s vice president of the United States? It’s not the government phone. It’s not Joe Biden’s personal phone,” Schweizer said.
“We know from the laptop that Hunter Biden’s business paid for a private phone line that Joe Biden used while he was vice president. It was from AT&T. It was $300 a month. It was a global phone where you could access somebody anywhere around the world,” he said.
