PLOT THICKENS – Close Ties Between Prosecutor and Biden Family

Derek Hines, an assistant U.S. attorney at the Department of Justice working on the Hunter Biden case, reportedly had a close professional relationship with a former FBI director whose firm has extensive business ties to the Biden family.

Hines’s LinkedIn page lists him working for former FBI Director Louis Freeh at his private company, Freeh Group International Solutions, as a special counsel between August 2013 and February 2015. Hines was one of the prosecutors to sign off on Biden’s recent plea deal.

An email had previously revealed that in 2016 that Freeh, then a partner at the Delaware-based law firm Freeh, Sporkin & Sullivan, worked with Biden on a job consulting deal regarding the prosecution of Romanian real estate tycoon Gabriel Popoviciu. Popoviciu reportedly paid Biden at least $1 million for help with his case. In April 2016, Freeh gave $100,000 to a trust for two of President Joe Biden’s grandchildren.

In July 2016, Freeh responded to an email to Hunter Biden, “I also spoke to [Joe Biden] a few weeks ago and would like to explore with him some future work options. I believe that working together on these (and other legal) matters would be of value, fun and rewarding.”

Freeh was a board member of the Beau Biden Foundation for the Protection of Children.
