Just days after Politico confirmed reports that material obtained from Hunter Biden’s laptop was “genuine,” Business Insider obtained a series of 2015 emails that appear to show that Hunter Biden offered to use his influence among global powerbrokers to help unfreeze Libya’s assets — assets the Obama administration locked down — for a cool $2 million.

“Insider obtained emails indicating that Hunter Biden asked for a $2 million annual retainer plus ‘success fees’ to help unfreeze Libyan assets during the Obama administration,” the outlet noted Thursday. “The communications offer ‘a window into the mechanics of Beltway influence-peddling and the stock that was put in Biden’s political connections.’”

The emails seem to shed a light on how Hunter Biden transacted his influence, particularly with his own father who, at the time, was Vice President.

“The Obama administration froze up to $15 billion in assets during Muammar Gaddafi’s rule,” Business Insider noted. “In 2015, long after Gaddafi’s ouster and death, two Democratic donors with business in the Persian Gulf pitched Hunter Biden about joining their cause.”

Although they never note the specific reason they were looking at Hunter Biden as a strategic partner, the issue came up during the Obama administration, and Hunter Biden, per the emails confirmed by Politico, was already working in the space.
