A new report published by Business Insider has shed light on email exchanges between two Arab Democratic donors revealed a 2015 plan involving Hunter Biden and what he can do to unfreeze billions of Libyan assets through his father Joe Biden, who was then serving as the Vice President.
Two emails sent by Hunter Biden's business contacts indicate he requested an annual retainer of $2 million to help recover billions in Libyan assets frozen by the Obama administration.— Politics Insider (@PoliticsInsider) September 24, 2021

According to Business Insider, leaked emails that were sent between Sam Jauhari and Sheikh Mohammed Al-Rahbani during 2015 revealed a demand by Hunter Biden for $2 million-plus 'success fees.' This is in exchange of pressuring the Obama administration to unfreeze more than $30 billion of Libyan assets that were frozen amid the February 2011 Libyan revolution against former leader Mu'ammar Gaddafi, so the new Libyan government can make use of them.
The first email, dated January 28, 2015, was sent from Democratic donor Sam Jauhari who was helping spearhead the Libya project.— Politics Insider (@PoliticsInsider) September 24, 2021

Throughout the emails, the two men discuss Hunter's massive network of connections that can help them in their endeavor to free up the Libyan money, in addition to his ability to directly influence the Obama administration's decision on the matter, through his father, then VP, Joe Biden.
Jauhari then tells Al-Rahbani that young Biden, who they refer to as "alcoholic" and "drug addict" demands "$2 million per year retainer +++ success fees."
Moreover, the two Obama donors seem to discuss Hunter Biden's need for cash as their emails proceed to discuss the fact that he was "kicked [out] of U.S. Army for cocaine, chasing low-class hookers, constant money-liquidity problems and many more headaches," BI reports.
In the second email, dated February 26, 2016, Jauhari and al-Rahbani received a report by John Sandweg, a Washington lawyer who had served as acting director of ICE under Obama.— Politics Insider (@PoliticsInsider) September 24, 2021

Business Insider states that an attorney for Hunter Biden and Sam Jauhari said they have both ignored the BI requests for comments on the matter.
Last year, a similar controversy was triggered suggesting Hunter Biden's involvement in politics in Ukraine. The 51-year old Biden was also accused of pedophilia as unverified reports suggested that his laptop which was being fixed in a local store contained "alleged child pornography videos."
