Joe Biden might have inadvertently paid for a series of wild nights his son Hunter had with a prostitute at a Los Angeles hotel in 2018, according to a New York Post report.
It was early May that year when Hunter Biden ordered Yanna, an escort, who billed herself as 'Russian, Green Eyes, Thin Brunette, an elite courtesan' from his favorite site, Emerald Fantasy Girls, according to the files obtained by the New York Post from his 2017 Macbook Pro.
'Hi, My name is Rob. I'm staying at Chateau Marmont,' he texts the woman on May 7, 2018, using his first name, Robert. 'Are you available now?'
During her visit to the hotel, the two have sex, drink vodka and film porn while he smokes crack, according to the Post. At one point balances a line of M&Ms on his erect penis - all of it documented in files stored on the laptop.
Hotel bills show Hunter then moved to a $470-per-night room at The Jeremy in West Hollywood later that month, where he hired another escort while under the protection of two recently retired Secret Service agents.
And messages saved on the laptop show Joe Biden might have inadvertently been the person actually paying the bill for the wild week, according to the messages obtained by the Post.
DailyMail.com also has reported separately on secrets that Hunter chose not to divulge in a recent memoir after it obtained contents of his abandoned laptop and had them verified by top forensics experts.
As for the 2018 tryst at The Jeremy, the Post reports that on the Morning of May 24, Hunter added a woman named Gulnora, a registered agent for Emerald Fantasy Girls, as a recipient on the cash transfer app Zelle, and attempted to wire her the money.
But his card doesn't work, and Wells Fargo sent him a fraud warning alert.
He tried another card, and then another before the $8,000 charge finally goes through.
Throughout the morning, however, the transactions he thought had failed start to clear, and the overcharges begin.
The first $8,000 leaves his account at 10.22am, according to receipts from the laptop viewed by the Post.
Then at 10.50am another transfer of $2,000, this time from a different account.
At 10.59am another $3,500 transfers, and at 11am another $8,000 and finally $3,500 at 11.03am.
In total roughly $25,000 is transferred in less than an hour, according to the Post.
'There is many transactions on my account,' Yanna would soon text him, according to the Post. 'From last night 8k, 8k, 3500k. So get back with me when you can. So I can transfer back to you. Better if you call my personal.'
'I’m happy to see that much in my account.' she texts again. 'No worries you can have the rest back. Karma is a b***h.'
'Send it back please.' Hunter replies at 4.19pm, according to the Post.
A little more than two hours later, however, he would be receiving texts from a very different person.
Labelled as from Robert Savage III, a former Secret Service agent who until that month had been in charge of the agency's Los Angeles field office, the Post reports, he texts him at 6.37pm: 'H – I’m in the lobby come down. Thanks, Rob.'
'5 minutes,' Hunter answers.
Savage's attorney told the Post that he had never been in contact with Hunter Biden, and said that he was retired before the exchange took place. He referred to the messages as 'fabricated text messages.'
DailyMail.com identified the messages on Hunter's laptop, validated earlier this year by cyber forensic experts as authentic.
'Come on H, this is linked to Celtic’s account,' Savage replied five minutes later, using the Secret Service code name for Joe Biden when he was vice president, the Post reported. 'DC is calling me every 10. Let me up or come down. I can’t help if you don’t let me H.'
It's not clear which if any of the accounts Hunter used to pay for Yanna may have been linked to his father.
'I promise be right down. Sorry.' Hunter answers.
Another five minutes goes by and Savage warns him that Dale Pupillo, also retired from the Secret Service, and who served as the agency's assistant director, had shown up, the Post reports.
Invoices on the laptop show that Pupillo vetted potential business partners for Hunter.
'He’s going to front desk, call and tell them to give us a key now H,' Savage texts. 'As your friend, we need to resolve this in the immediate.'
'Call the front desk now H or I will have to assume you are in danger and we will have to make them give us the keys.' Savage continues.
'Really, Rob I am coming down right now,' Hunter replies nine minutes later. 'I really promise. Was in the bathroom buddy. Coming right this second.'
'We're at your door. Open it,' comes a quick reply from Savage.
The exchange ends there, but further records on the laptop indicate Hunter spent the rest of the evening on an encrypted site, 'secure.login.gov' until 4.04am, according to the Post.
Further texts and receipts on the laptop indicate that all but $5,000 of the extra charges for Yanna's visit were returned, with Gulnora texting Hunter that she was having trouble with her bank account.
'Bulls***t I am so sick of this,' he responds.
A number of Hunter's other escapades at Chateau Marmont, where Saturday Night Live star John Belushi famously overdosed in 1982, including that he was banned from the hotel for 'drug use' were recently chronicled in other files from the laptop according to the Washington Examiner.
Biden had stayed at the Sunset Boulevard hotel for an 'undetermined amount of time' in 2018, following his divorce from Kathleen Buhle and during an extended period of drug use he chronicled in his memoir 'Beautiful Things.'
In texts from Hunter to a friend dated April 15, 2018 he says he is at the hotel 'for the month.'
'Seriously, I tried to stay there last night and the Ass. handed me keys when he read a note in the system that said under no circumstances am I allowed in bldg without her pre-approval.'
The employee then reportedly offered to check on Biden's status, and texted him back later: 'Apparently you were banned for "drug use" is what I was told, which is bulls***.'
'You have to be ducking kidding me,' Biden later replied. 'I was banned for drug use at the Chateau Marmont. You have to be f****** kidding me.'
'Lol exactly,' the employee responds.
'Well that's a f****** first in the hotel's history I guess,' Biden says. 'Should I take it as a badge of honor?'
The employee then tells him not to stress and suggests the two get a drink.
'I have never ever been rude or have had a complaint against me from a guest or employee,' Biden wrote in response. 'I kind of thought I was an employee favorite. And they ban me without telling me directly. I have to find out from the night desk guy.'
He then moved over to La Peer, another West Hollywood luxury hotel, and his conversation with the employee picked up again a few months later, with the employee, who has not been named, texting him: 'Your profile does say BLACKLISTED.
'There was a hole in the wall of one of the rooms you had,' the employee explained.
'A hole - what does that even mean?' Biden asked in response. 'And why would a [hole] in the wall not be something I paid to repair?'
'And I've never put a f****** hole in any wall,' he claimed, before he and the employee discussed how he could retrieve his belongings from the hotel, which has become infamous for the many celebrities who have reportedly done drugs there.
In 1982, John Belushi had been staying in one of the bungalows on a five-day cocaine bender with Robert DeNiro and Robin Williams when he overdosed, which wound up inspiring other drug addicts to want to stay in Belushi's former bungalow, according to the New York Post.
A few years later, singer Rick James also overdosed at the hotel, but was revived.
Doors lead singer Jim Morrison also once jumped off a balcony at the hotel and was known to leave bloody sheets in his bedroom for the maids to clean up, while singer James Taylor reportedly shot heroin there in front of Carly Simon.
And in 2006, just two years before his untimely death, Heath Ledger was filmed using cocaine on the hotel's front balcony after winning a Screen Actor's Guild Award.
Last year, though, owner André Balazs announced that he would convert the famed 20’s era hotel into a private members-only hotel due to the pandemic.
He said he thought guests would be more comfortable sharing space with a pre-vetted group, rather than surrounded by throngs of tourists that often frequent the restaurant and ornate lobby looking for celebrities.
This is not the first time the younger Biden has previously come under investigation for his drug use.
In 2016, he allegedly dropped off a rental car in Prescott, Arizona, leaving behind a crack pipe and white powder, his driver's license and his late brother Beau's attorney general badge.
The next day, he allegedly used a fake name to call the Hertz rental company and tell them he left the keys in the car's gas tank compartment.
Police report they called in the FBI and Hunter was 'located by Secret Service' and found to be well.
The Prescott Police Department also said they could not find any fingerprints on the pipe, but it was unclear whether the department tried to extract DNA from the pipe.
And in April, DailyMail.com reported that he had stayed in a third-floor suite of The Jeremy Hotel in Los Angeles for a week, ordering room service each night, dinking at the hotel bar and racking up a $5,195 bill, including a $400 fine for smoking in his room.
During the stay, he also sought refills for prescriptions of a generic equivalent to Viagara called Sildenafil, the antidepressant Lexapro and anxiety medication clonazepam.
He had also texted his father, now President Joe Biden, about his struggles and the president had offered to pay for his grandchildren's medical care when Hunter ran out of money.
What WASN'T in Hunter Biden's book: How he got unauthorized Secret Service protection, begged Joe to run for WH to salvage his own reputation and made porn films with prostitutes. Forensic experts prove laptop IS President's son's
Hunter Biden's 'tell-all' autobiography promised the unvarnished story of his struggles with drugs, family turmoil and his controversial love life.
But there were many shocking details of his debauched life that the president's son chose not to share with readers, including details of his fragile relationship with his father.
Now DailyMail.com can reveal the secrets Hunter chose not to divulge, exposed in the contents of his abandoned laptop and verified by top forensics experts.
The bombshell cache of 103,000 text messages, 154,000 emails, more than 2,000 photos and dozens of videos are packed with revelations conveniently missing from the memoir, including:
-- How he begged his father to run for president in 2019 to salvage Hunter's own reputation
-- How he repeatedly dodged police action against him, despite constantly dealing with drug pushers and prostitutes and having multiple run-ins with law enforcement
-- Hunter was guarded by a Secret Service agent while on a 2018 drug and prostitute binge in Hollywood, despite not being entitled to protection at the time and amid denials from the federal agency
-- Joe Biden was afraid his text conversations with Hunter were being hacked even as they discussed his White House bid
-- How Hunter's laptop is brimming with evidence of apparent criminal activity by Hunter and his associates including drug trafficking and prostitution
The president's son left his 2017 MacBook Pro laptop at a Wilmington, Delaware computer repair shop in April 2019 and never returned for it.
Emails leaked from the computer sparked a scandal before the 2020 presidential election in October, but were dismissed as Russian disinformation by the Bidens and other senior Democrats, social media giants Twitter and Facebook, and several major media organizations.
After obtaining a copy of the hard drive, DailyMail.com commissioned top cyber forensics experts Maryman & Associates to analyze its data and determine whether the laptop's contents were real.
The firm's founder, Brad Maryman, is a 29-year FBI veteran Supervisory Special Agent who served as an Information Security Officer and founded its first computer forensics lab.
Maryman and his business partner Dr. Joseph Greenfield used the same forensic tools to pick apart the drive as federal and state law enforcement use in criminal investigations, and prepared a report for DailyMail.com.
The report said the data on the drive 'appear to be authentic', and that after an extensive search of its contents for any tell-tale signs of tampering, Maryman and Greenfield found 'no evidence' of fabrication – by Russians or anyone else.
'The data on the system before April 2019 appears to be related to Mr. Biden, with timestamps appearing to be between 2016 and 2019,' the Maryman and Associates report said.
'The operating system timestamps appear to be authentic, and no evidence was found to suggest that the timestamps or data were altered or manufactured. No indications were found that would indicate the data was manufactured.'
In a presidential debate in October, Joe Biden referred to the leaks of Hunter's emails as 'a bunch of garbage.'
But in an interview with CBS on Sunday to promote his new book, Beautiful Things, Hunter said the laptop 'could be' his.
'There could be a laptop out there that was stolen from me. It could be that I was hacked. It could be that it was the — that it was Russian intelligence. It could be that it was stolen from me or that there was a laptop stolen from me,' he said.
Among the 103,199 text messages on the hard drive dating from 2016 to March 2019 are fraught conversations between President Joe Biden and his son.
The texts reveal how Joe was sucked into his son's torrid love life, became a punching bag for Hunter's drug-fueled rants, and paid his grandchildren's bills when Hunter had drained his bank accounts from his spending on prostitutes and crack cocaine.
When the former Delaware senator was elected Vice President in 2008, it put an end to Hunter's lucrative career as a lobbyist to avoid the appearance of conflicts of interest.
Hunter then embarked on a series of controversial business ventures and fell into a cycle of crack and prostitute binges, scandal and rehab.
By 2019 his texts appeared to be seething with resentment.
When Joe texted him a typically doting message 'Good morning my beautiful son. I miss you and love you. Dad' on February 24 that year, Hunter raged at his father for 'having made clear to the world that the only reason for not [running for president is your] family problems im glad to be the f***ing bullseye you painted on my back.'
Hunter complained that his father's advice to not defend himself in the media over stories about his expensive divorce from his ex-wife Kathleen Biden or his affair with his brother's widow Hallie had backfired, and added sarcastically: 'Oh …good morning …from f***ing rehab.'
'Your team just made me the uncontrollable troubled tax cheat philanderer sex and drug addict that you tried so hard to fix but couldn't yt. They just totally wrote my life away,' he wrote.
'If you dont run ill never have a chance at redemption.'
Joe replied, promising his son he would run for President but adding that he was worried his texts were 'a target' for hacking.
'I'll run but I need you,' he wrote. 'H[allie] is wrong. Only focus is recovery. Nothing else... When you can and feel like it call. Positive my text etc a target. Love.'
He declared his candidacy two months later.
After another rant from Hunter in September 2018 Joe wrote: 'Be careful what you text. Likely I'm being hacked.'
The future president had good reason to worry, as his phone was filling up with incriminating and embarrassing texts as his son's relationship with Hallie disintegrated, according to Hunter's messages to him.
When Hunter's controversial affair with Beau's widow was publicly revealed in March 2017, Joe reluctantly released a statement giving the couple his blessing.
But a year later he was already being drawn into the couple's meltdown by his erratic, addict son.
In July 2018 Hunter sent a recording to his father of himself talking on the phone to Hallie.
Joe responded: 'Got your text. Can't say I'm surprised. Going to bed I'll call you tomorrow morning. Love you. Be strong. Love Dad.'
