Peter Schweizer, the author of “Red Handed: How American Elites Get Rich Helping China Win,” criticized the mainstream media for their shabby reporting of the Hunter Biden-Devon Archer story, according to Breitbart. His comments came during an episode of The Drill Down podcast.
While talking to co-host Eric Eggers of the Government Accountability Institute, Schweizer said that the relationship between the media and the federal government is like a spouse and her abuser; despite the lies, he said, the media continues to hold water for the Biden team. The author then called out CNN’s reporting as “laughable.”
Schweizer referred to the testimony given to the House Oversight Committee by Devon Archer, a former business partner and friend of Hunter Biden. Archer testified that Hunter, who was sitting on the board of Ukrainian energy company Burisma Holdings, sold his father’s “brand.” It was also revealed that Biden had allegedly spoken with his son’s business associates on speakerphone.
Archer’s testimony contradicts Biden’s previous claims that he never spoke with his son about his business. While on the campaign trail in 2019, Biden alleged that any claim otherwise was a “smear” by Donald Trump.

Schweizer first spoke about the matter on Fox News’ “Sunday Morning Futures” with Maria Bartiromo. He reportedly anticipates Eric Schwerin, a former business associate of Hunter, to be deposed before the House Oversight Committee. He noted that there may exist phone records when Hunter’s business, Rosemont Seneca Partners, bought a phone for the vice president.
One of the persons that may have called Biden is Mykola Zlochevsky, the owner of Burisma Holdings. Zlochevsky allegedly admitted to bribing the Bidens with two $5 million payments in exchange for getting Ukrainian prosecutor Viktor Shokin fired. Shokin was investigating the energy company.
Schweizer adds that text messages reveal that Hunter complained about continuing to pay for that phone after Biden left his position in 2017.
