More On: Hunter Biden
At a fancy hotel, Hunter Biden allegedly begged one of Maryland's 'most wanted' criminals to send him crack cocaine.
The request was made, it seems, in a suspicious text exchange that was found on Hunter Biden's hard drive after he had left it behind. The messages show that the first son talked to someone over the course of several months in 2018. He asked that something be sent to him under the name "Joseph Smith," which is the name of the founder of the Mormon church.
Biden never said what he wanted in the messages, but The Sun said the person on the other end was 47-year-old panhandler Voshawn Sample, who was wanted for armed robbery and assault at a liquor store in Glen Burnie, Md., in September 2021.
Fox 5 Baltimore said that Sample shot a worker at Champion Liquors and then stole $10,000. When his case was shown on Maryland's Most Wanted last year, Sample was called "armed, dangerous, and hard to predict."
The Sun says that Sample is in jail and that his trial is likely to happen in November.
From May to August 2018, Hunter texted with the phone number that Sample was given. This is shown by the records on the laptop. The person who answered the phone Saturday told The Post that Sample no longer has that number.
The texts show that Hunter Biden seemed to use Sample to get drugs, but he also got turned down a lot.
"Man same thing. I can't believe you've done that to me three times. I'm done, dude. In a text message from June 12, 2018, the first son said, "I thought you were the last honest man in the world."
"I'm going to be honest with you, my mom has been on vacation and I haven't been able to cook anything because my mom has been acting crazy lately," Sample is said to have said in response. "Please come to my house when you get home, and don't bring a dollar with you, buddy."
"I promise I still have that for you. Someone asked Biden, "Are you going to come get what's yours?"
Hunter replied, "FEDEX or overnight mail to Guest Joseph Smith at the Post Office" (HB). 8221 Sunset Boulevard Los Angeles, California. Chateau Marmont Hotel."
Hunter was upset because the drugs never came.
"So you didn't send anything, even though you said you would... he texted. "Why am I talking to you?" Later texts show that the person asked Hunter Biden for money to pay legal fees. In response, the first son said he would send $800.
The Post asked Hunter Biden's representatives for their thoughts, but they didn't answer.
