Hunter Biden and Devon Archer's Text Messages Revealed

 July 31, 2023

Hunter Biden's text messages reveal he and business partner Devon Archer believed they would have the "last laugh" after Archer's conviction was thrown out, setting the stage for more inquiries into their business affairs.

Hunter Biden, the son of President Biden, expressed joy to his longtime friend and business partner, Devon Archer, after learning that a judge had thrown out Archer's conviction. This information comes from 2018 text messages recently reviewed by Fox News.

Archer is set to appear before the House Oversight Committee on Monday. Reports suggest he will discuss President Biden's interactions with many of Hunter's business associates during his time as vice president. Archer informed Hunter in a November 2018 text message about the judge's decision, to which Hunter responded with enthusiasm.

Text Messages Between Hunter and Archer

The text message exchange between the two friends paints a picture of relief and anticipation.

"Thank f---ing god! First good news in way too long my friend. I am so happy for you. I know its (sic) been a living hell but put it behind you now and take great steps forward," Hunter said.

"Love you brother," Archer responded.

The conversation went on to suggest a strong feeling of victory over the situation, with Hunter using strong language to refer to the Department of Justice, calling them "motherf---ers" and said he and Archer will "have the last laugh."

"I swear to god we’ll have the last laugh," Hunter said.

U.S. District Judge Ronnie Abrams in Manhattan ruled that evidence against Archer did not prove his knowledge or personal benefit from a fraudulent bond issue. The ruling came as a substantial relief to Archer, who was seemingly exonerated by the judge's decision.

Judge Expresses Unwavering Concern for Archer's Innocence

Judge Abrams further stated that she was left with an unwavering concern that Archer was innocent of the crimes charged. This ruling had significant implications, bringing into focus the complexities of the case and potentially raising questions about the initial conviction.

The text messages and emails exchanged between Hunter Biden, Archer, and various business associates over a decade will soon be under the spotlight. Archer's testimony before the House Oversight Committee is expected to delve into their business dealings and possibly explosive allegations about President Biden's involvement.

In a statement last week, Archer's attorney, Matthew Schwartz, said:

"Devon Archer believes strongly in the rule of law and the democratic system, and is prepared to answer the Committee's questions just as he has already answered similar questions from a federal grand jury, the Department of Justice, and several other government agencies in their investigations concerning the Biden family."

Archer's Business Relationships with the Biden Family

Archer's knowledge of business arrangements stems from years of collaboration with Hunter. They worked together on the board of Ukrainian natural gas firm Burisma Holdings and co-founded investment firms. Archer also served as managing director in various ventures.

Hunter and Archer's business connections also extended to the Chinese investment sphere. They co-founded BHR Partners, a Beijing-backed private equity firm controlled by Bank of China Limited.

Hunter expressed gratitude for Archer's friendship in an email, illustrating their close relationship. Archer's replies were equally affectionate, showing a shared excitement for their future ventures.

In April, it was reported that business partners and associates of Rosemont Seneca Partners, including Archer, visited the White House multiple times when Biden was vice president. Archer's interactions with Joe Biden during his vice presidency were documented, including visits, golf outings, and attendance at Biden's holiday parties.

Legal Challenges and Future Prospects

Despite the 2018 conviction being thrown out, Archer faced legal hurdles as the Second Circuit Court of Appeals reinstated his conviction. He was sentenced to a year and a day in prison last February for defrauding a Native American tribal entity and other clients.

Archer's sentence has been postponed due to appeals, and he is expected to report to prison soon. The U.S. Attorney's Office for the Southern District of New York requested a date for Archer to report, but further appeals may delay the process.

The unfolding events in this case shine a light on the intricate business relationships and potential legal challenges faced by Archer and Hunter Biden. As Archer prepares to testify before the House Oversight Committee, further insights into the dealings of Hunter Biden and potentially President Biden may emerge.
