Businessman Sat in Jail for Donations to Biden – Now, He’s Blasting Hunter’s Plea Deal

After the recent revelations made by Hunter Biden’s partner Devon Archer, the media was quick to jump to President Joe Biden’s defense, categorizing his conversations and meetings with Hunter’s business associates as “conversations about the weather.”

But Hunter’s past history and criminal behavior in no way jibes with the assumption that corrupt companies like Burisma were foolish enough to pay him millions just for the “illusion of influence.”

Hunter Biden flouts the law and gets away with it. And he is certainly not above using people and destroying lives to do it.

One such individual, a former Biden donor, Chris Tigani, says he found himself ensnared in a campaign finance scandal with Hunter Biden and served two years in prison for a scheme the younger Biden came up with.

On “The Story” Wednesday on Fox News, Tigani told host Martha MacCallum that in 2008, he was approached by President Biden’s two sons, Beau and Hunter Biden, to raise $75,000 for billboards to help in Joe Biden’s later aborted run for president.

Tigani bundled money through his employees, using company funds to reimburse them and bypass individual donation limits to get around campaign finance laws.

Tigani said he was asked by Joe Biden’s then-campaign manager Dennis Toner, and later by Beau and Hunter how many employees he trusted and to “have them write a check and then reimburse them.”

Tigani later faced an FBI investigation, resulting in a conviction for election bundling offenses and two tax charges.

When the FBI “came knocking,” Tigani said that Biden’s campaign manager denied any knowledge of using Tigani as a “bundler.”

“When Dennis Toner and I spoke and he said he didn’t know what I was talking about, the very next day they unsealed the indictment, they wouldn’t let me go talk to the Bidens,” Tigani said.

In 2012, at the age of 53, Tigani received a two-year prison sentence. The prosecution of his case was led by David Weiss, who served as the First Assistant U.S. Attorney at the time.

Interestingly, Weiss was also the prosecutor in the Hunter Biden case who signed the “sweetheart” plea deal, allowing him to evade jail time despite facing two tax violations and a felony charge for gun possession.
