Mr. Archer -- some men from the FBI wish to talk with you about Hunter Biden.
Devon Archer — Hunter Biden’s Ukraine/China Business Partner — Has Fraud Conviction Re-Instated by Appeals Court and Faces Prison Time
Quick hitter here to tee this story up for a more in-depth examination of the implications a little later.
Devon Archer has his conviction for securities fraud re-instated by the Second Circuit Court of Appeals. Archer and two others were convicted by a jury on June 28, 2018, in the Southern District of New York. On November 15, 2018, the trial judge affirmed the convictions of the other two defendants, but vacated the conviction as to Archer, and granted him a new trial. The government appealed that decision.
Oral arguments on the appeal took place on November 8, 2019 — 11 months ago. The Second Circuit issued its decision yesterday, reversing the trial judge’s order for a new trial, and reinstating Archer’s conviction on all counts by the jury.
So, some might be wondering, “Who is Devon Archer?”
Devon Archer is a long-time family friend of the Heinz family in Pennsylvania — the very wealthy family into which John Kerry managed to get his gold-digging fingers when he married Theresa Heinz, the widow of former Pennsylvania Senator John Heinz, who was killed in a plane crash in 1991.
John Kerry became step-father to Christopher Heinz when he married Christopher’s mother. Devon Archer was Christopher Heinz’s roommate at Yale. Archer was also co-founder of private-equity firm Rosemont Capital with Christopher Heinz, starting their operation with money from the Rosemont Foundation, the investment arm of the Heinz family fortune. Archer served as senior adviser to John Kerry during his 2004 presidential bid.
It was so very sad to hear about Mr. Archer's suicide...
