- Eric Schwerin was tasked with moving archives to University of Delaware in 2010
- White House lawyers warned about including ‘Obama-Biden transition’ docs
- Schwerin forwarded the email warning to Hunter to keep him ‘in the loop’
Hunter Biden‘s business partner was tasked with transferring sensitive papers from Joe Biden‘s vice presidential office to the University of Delaware – papers that were sensitive enough to require the involvement of White House lawyers, DailyMail.com can reveal.
The revelation is the latest piece of evidence tying Hunter to the president’s potential mishandling of classified documents.
Eric Schwerin, Hunter’s Rosemont Seneca partner who handled Joe’s taxes and personal affairs, was in charge of moving an archive of 1,850 boxes of files from the vice president’s DC office that were being donated to the University of Delaware in 2010.
Biden, who was vice president at the time, had donated thousands of archives from his senate career to the university library’s special collections department
Those documents, mainly from Biden’s time as a Delaware senator, also included Obama-Biden presidential transition team papers and raised the hackles of White House lawyers.
In a March 2010 email from Hunter’s laptop, Joe’s deputy counsel Katherine Oyama wrote to Schwerin warning that the ‘Deed of Gift’ document to the university ‘appears to include Obama-Biden transition papers, which the vice president likely does not own.’
She recommended the inclusion of language about ‘the University’s duty to comply with … classified information procedures’.
Schwerin forwarded the correspondence to Hunter, saying: ‘FYI – if you want to be in the loop. I sent to Mel who is going to talk to your Dad about this and decide who should work on it between him and Jamie.’
‘Mel’ likely refers to attorney Melvyn Monzack, who handled Hunter and Joe’s brother Jim’s taxes and other Biden family affairs.
Monzack also sent Hunter emails directly about Joe’s gift of sensitive papers to the University of Delaware in October 2010.
According to the University of Delaware website, ‘more than 1,850 boxes of archival records from the President’s Senate career arrived at the Library on June 6, 2012.’

A Newark Post report from the time said the records arrived on 33 pallets carried by two trucks, and also included 415 gigabytes of electronic records.
It is still unclear whether the thousands of papers given to UDel ended up including any classified documents.
Republican senator Ted Cruz called this week for the FBI to examine the boxes.
‘I am right now calling for the Department of Justice, for the FBI, to examine all 1,850 boxes of those Senate records to see how many additional classified documents are in those records,’ Cruz said on his podcast, Verdict with Ted Cruz.
‘The answer should be none. But given Biden’s pattern, we should have zero reason to have any confidence that there are not multiple classified documents within those 1,850 boxes of Senate records,’ the senator claimed.
