Hunter Biden Whistleblower Moved from Jail Cell after Exposing Foreign Dealings
Family of Bevan Cooney, ex-business associate of Joe Biden’s son, 'extremely concerned'
A former business associate of Joe Biden's son, Hunter Biden, has been moved from his jail cell after he came forward to blow the whistle on the Biden family's foreign dealings with wealthy oligarchs.
Hunter's former business associate, Bevan Cooney, flipped on the Biden family in recent days and handed over a batch of evidence to investigative journalists that allegedly exposes lucrative deals in China and Russia while Joe was vice president.
The full details from the emails have yet to be made public by journalists Peter Schweizer and Matthew Tyrmand, who are still reportedly examining their contents.
Since reports of Cooney's whistleblowing emerged this week, he has now been moved from his prison cell, sources familiar with the matter confirmed to Breitbart.
On Tuesday, several days after emails Cooney provided to Schweizer and Tyrmand became public, federal agents moved him from his cell for his own protection.
Tyrmand, who is in contact with members of Cooney’s family, told Breitbart that Cooney was moved from his cell in a federal prison in Oregon around 11:00 a.m. local time on Tuesday.
Tyrmand said that Cooney spoke with family members multiple times on Tuesday, which he said is “much more than usual.”
“Bevan could sense that things had changed with the rise in visibility of his story,” Tyrmand said.
Cooney’s family stressed to Tyrmand they are “extremely concerned given the nervousness gleaned from Bevan’s reaction this morning and they would appreciate a sign from the powers that be that Bevan is in protective custody.”
It is unclear where Cooney has been moved to, and in whose custody he currently is.

The federal Bureau of Prisons, which falls under the Department of Justice, has yet to make a statement on the matter.
Requests from reporters to interview Cooney in prison have also been denied, as all media interview requests with federal prisoners are currently being denied due to restrictions because of the coronavirus pandemic.
“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.
“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.”
Cooney provided Schweizer and Tyrmand with written authorization to access his Gmail account and to publish all newsworthy information from his trove of 26,000 emails.
Some of them are personal and unrelated to the Biden corruption, but many of them—including ones already published last week and this week—demonstrate a culture of corruption surrounding the Biden family.
The first story published on Breitbart last week, by Schweizer and author Seamus Bruner, detailed how Hunter Biden and his associates secured high-level White House meetings for Chinese Communist Party-connected elites visiting Washington from China.
That included, per those Chinese elites, a secret unreported meeting with then-Vice President Joe Biden himself.
Other emails that surfaced on One News Network showed a deeper relationship between the Bidens and the ex-wife of the former Moscow mayor Elena Baturina.
More emails surfaced Monday in another Breitbart report showing how Hunter Biden’s business associate viewed his relationship with his father, Joe Biden—a “direct administration pipeline”—as a form of “currency” to trade on and make more money.
More details from the emails are set to be released soon.
