Bevan Cooney, the former business associate of former Vice President Joe Biden’s son Hunter Biden, who recently released emails exposing the Biden family, has been moved from his cell in a federal facility, according to Breitbart News.
Cooney was moved from his cell in the federal prison in Oregon on Tuesday, Oct. 20, several days after he provided the Breitbart’s senior contributor Peter Schweizer and journalist Matthew Tyrmand with written authorization to access his Gmail account, which contains approximately 26,000 emails. Breitbart News and others have published some of them, outlining a culture of corruption surrounding the Biden family.
Tyrmand, who is in contact with the Cooney family, said they are “extremely concerned given the nervousness gleaned from Bevan’s reaction” on Tuesday. It’s unclear where Cooney was moved to.

“They [the Cooney family] believe that alerting the family is the moral thing to do if anyone in government knows anything regarding Bevan’s immediate situation,” Tyrmand told Breitbart News. “They are hopeful he is fine and permanently out of the Oregon facility in which he had been detained for over a year.
“They know he has been highly motivated in bringing transparency to all of the things that he was exposing by sharing his emails directly with me and Peter [Schweizer]. Given that he was supposed to be released in the coming weeks, although that had been recently pushed back without explanation, his motivation lay purely in seeing justice delivered and warning America about what he had had a front-row seat to witness.”
The disclosure of Cooney’s emails followed the New York Post’s explosive reports detailing how Hunter Biden traded on his father’s name while making business deals with Ukrainian and the Chinese Communist Party-linked companies. Some emails show the former vice president’s involvement.
While the Biden campaign and Hunter Biden’s lawyer have not denied the veracity of those emails, Biden dismissed the reports on his son as a “smear campaign.”
Senate Homeland Security Committee Chairman Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) released last month an 87-page report on conflict-of-interest concerns raised about the Biden family. Johnson accused Hunter Biden and other Biden family members of using their last name to make millions of dollars in shady overseas deals.
“[Hunter Biden received] $4.2 million from Burisma, and $3.5 million transferred from the former wife of the now-deceased mayor of Moscow,” Johnson said in an interview with Sean Hannity. “The intricate web, the vast web of financial connections and money, cash going back and forth between Hunter and his businesses and Chinese nationals that have connections to the Chinese Communist Party as well as the People’s Liberation Army. This is very troubling.”
It’s a scandal in and of itself that the mainstream media is ignoring the vast web of conflicts of interest raised about the Biden family in our 87-page report. Read the report here: https://t.co/obf1Lougv6 pic.twitter.com/8wUVTo5Gyl

Biden on Tuesday said that there is no legitimacy to Johnson’s claims, calling them a “last-ditch effort in this desperate campaign to smear me and my family.”
The FBI declared Tuesday that it has the laptop purportedly belonging to Hunter Biden, reported Fox News.
The FBI and Justice Department officials concur with an assessment from Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe that the laptop’s revelations are not part of a Russian disinformation campaign amid allegations pushed by Democrats.
