A report by Fox News shed light on the issue, presenting information that the elder Biden met with his son's business associates while serving as vice president. These business partners hailed from countries in Latin America and the former Soviet Union.
The report mentioned businessman and former Mexican senator Miguel Aleman Velasco and his son Miguel Aleman Magnani as among these associates. The father and son duo visited the West Wing on Feb. 26, 2014, which White House visitor logs that time confirmed. Both Bidens were later pictured with the Alemans while touring the James S. Brady Press Briefing Room.
More than a year later, the Alemans attended a meeting with the Bidens at the vice presidential residence. This time, Mexican billionaire Carlos Slim and Biden family friend Jeff Cooper were also part of the Nov. 29, 2015 meeting. Photos of the meeting were subsequently published by the Daily Mail.
Prior to his meetings with the Alemans and Slim, the elder Biden also met with former Colombian President Andres Pastrana Arago at the vice presidential residence. A March 2, 2012 entry in Hunter's personal calendar, obtained by the New York Post, confirmed this meeting. The outlet added that former Rosemont Seneca President Eric Schwerin also joined in the talks.
Later that same day, Hunter scheduled a lunch at Cafe Milano with Pastrana and Juan Esteban Orduz, president of the Colombian Coffee Federation.
The Fox News report also found that the elder Biden met with his son's business partners from the former Soviet Union. According to records from Hunter's infamous "laptop from hell," the then-vice president attended a dinner on April 16, 2015 at Cafe Milano.
The guest list for the April 2015 dinner included Vadym Pozharskyi, an executive at Ukrainian oil and gas company Burisma. It also included the late Moscow Mayor Yury Luzhkov and his wife Elena Baturina.
Former World Food Program USA President and CEO Rick Leach, who was also invited, confirmed that the then-vice president did show up at the dinner. However, he clarified that the elder Biden did not stay long and that there were no discussions of politics or business.
A day after the dinner, Pozharskyi sent an email to Hunter thanking the latter for "inviting him to DC and giving an opportunity to meet [Joe] and [spend] some time together." This aforementioned email was part of the trove of documents obtained by the Post back in October 2020.

Later, Baturina's involvement with Hunter came to light after she wired $3.5 million to a bank account owned by Rosemont Seneca. The amount wired in February 2014 was purportedly part of a "consultancy agreement."
Aside from this, Baturina also sent 11 other wires amounting to almost $400,000 to a bank account belonging to technology company BAK USA between May and December 2015. Nine of the 11 wires amounting to $241,797 were initially sent to another Rosemont Seneca account before being transferred to the technology firm.
"I have never spoken to my son about his overseas business dealings," the elder Biden said back in 2019. He reiterated this while on the presidential campaign trail in 2020. Two years later, former White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki echoed the same sentiment.
The Fox News analysis disproved those claims by Biden.
