A White House aide, Michael Hochman, who previously worked at Monzack Mersky McLaughlin and Browder, a law firm linked to Hunter Biden and other Biden family members, has held multiple positions within the Biden administration.
Hochman’s past work at the law firm, including communications with Hunter Biden, has raised questions, particularly as it relates to the Biden family’s financial dealings and business connections.

Hochman originally served as the White House deputy staff secretary before being appointed to The Office of the National Cyber Director (ONCD), which advises Biden on cybersecurity policy and strategy.
Hochman’s career accelerated from deputy general counsel, to deputy chief of staff, to a final promotion to chief of staff last November.
Hochman described having “an enterprise-wide view of the work of the office,” adding it was “like working for a start-up” with the “long hours and all the challenges that come from building something new.”
Fox News Digital reported that, “Monzack Mersky McLaughlin and Browder has served as the registered agent for Owasco LLC, Rosemont Seneca Advisors, and Robinson Walker LLC, which is owned by Hunter’s former business partner Rob Walker.”
Adding to their previous report that, “members of the Biden family received more than $1 million in payments from accounts related to Walker’s LLC and their Chinese business ventures involving CEFC affiliate State Energy HK in 2017.”
The outlet also reported that, “Joe and Jill Biden used Monzack Mersky and Browder as the registered agent to set up two S-corporations, Celticcapri Corp. and Giacoppa Corp., the business entities used ‘to receive [millions of dollars in] royalties from their writing and speaking engagements.'”
Rep. Elise Stefanik said, “I have said for months that the Bidens’ corrupt influence peddling scheme will go down as the greatest political scandal of our lifetime, and likely in the history of the country.”
“Joe Biden is compromised. House Republicans are committed to delivering the transparency and accountability that the American people demand and deserve from their elected officials and public servants,” added the NY Republican.
Additionally, emails show Hochman’s involvement in introducing potential clients to Hunter Biden and interactions during the Obama administration.
Hochman reportedly emailed Hunter Biden, “Went running with Beau yesterday and we were talking briefly about Burisma. Good news. I’m pretty familiar with this industry (at least domestically) – my father-in-law is heavily involved in the Marcellus shale gas play in Pennsylvania – the largest source of natural gas in the United States.”
Adding, “He is extremely knowledgeable and well-connected in those parts. He’d love to discuss with you; would you be willing to talk with him? Also, a good excuse for me to come down and see you guys in DC. Let me know.”
A response was not reported, but another later email was also uncovered.
“Eugene Amobi is the principal member of Tech International Corp., a good friend of the family’s, and a client of MMMB,” wrote Hochman.
“He is a retired DuPont engineer with two sons who attended Tower Hill (Chux) and Friends (E.J.), both of whom live in Delaware,” added Hunter Biden’s associate.
“He is looking for assistance navigating the federal, local, and international systems for growth opportunities in the company’s engineering, IT, and project/construction management areas of expertise,” he continued.
“I believe Tech International also qualifies for certification as a minority-owned business, which may be an incentive for certain projects. If you think your firm can help, I would be happy to introduce you to Eugene.”
Hunter forwarded the email to Schwerin and asked him to “take a look and lets get back to him.”
Schwerin responded that he “talked to Michael on Friday and he’s arranging a meeting/call between us and the CEO.”
