Hunter Biden’s firm invested $500,000 in Ukrainian biolab operator Metabiota, which then received a $23.9 million contact from the Pentagon for bioresearch. Metabiota head Nathan Wolfe worked together with EcoHealth’s Peter Daszak on SARS-based coronavirus research. The Russian Defence Ministry claims to have over 20,000 documents on the US biolab project in Ukraine.
On Feb. 24, 2022, the day of the Russian invasion of Ukraine, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky ordered the destruction of all documents related to Hunter Biden’s partner firm Metabiota, blogger Jacob Creech AKA @WarClandestine reported in June 2022 and again yesterday on Twitter after he was reinstated.
Hunter Biden’s Rosemont Seneca Technology Partners invested $500,000 in the San Francisco bioresearch firm Metabiota and raised millions more through firms that included Goldman Sachs and Morgan Stanley, according to e-mails on Hunter Biden’s laptop, as the New York Post reported March 26, 2022.
On April 4, 2014 Metabiota vice president Mary Guttieri wrote to Hunter Biden: “As promised, I’ve prepared the attached memo, which provides an overview of Metabiota, our engagement in Ukraine, and how we can potentially leverage our team, networks, and concepts to assert Ukraine’s cultural and economic independence from Russia and continued integration into Western society.”
On April 8, 2014, Burisma manager Vadym Pozharshki wrote to Hunter Biden’s business partner Devon Archer, inquiring about a proposed deal with Biotech firm Metabiota. “As I understand Metabiota was a subcontractor to principal contractor of the DoD B&V (Black & Veatch)… What kind of partnership Metabiota is lo0oking for in Ukraine? … The principal contractor B&V (Black & Veatch) seems to be also the party that operates in Ukraine on similar or the same projects. There is no competition here?”
Vadym Pozharshki met with Hunter Biden and Joe Biden in Café Milano in Washington, DC on April 16, 2015, as e-mails on the Hunter Biden laptop show. “Dear Hunter, thank you for inviting me to DC and giving an opportunity to meet your father and spent [sic] some time together,” Pozharskyi wrote on April 17, 2015. “It’s realty [sic] an honor and pleasure.”
On May 12, 2014, Hunter Biden joined the Board of Directors of Burisma Holdings, according to its press release, where he earned $1 million a year for inclear services.
Metabiota was spun off from San Francisco not-for-profit organization Global Viral 2014, previously known as Global Viral Forecasting Institute (GVFI), according to the Global Viral website. Neil Callahan and John DeLoche, employees of Hunter Biden’s company Rosemont Seneca Partners, were appointed to the board of Metabiota.
Metabiota head Nathan Wolfe is an expert on Viral Pandemics who serves on the editorial board of EcoHealth and is a member of DARPA’s Defense Science Research Council. Wolfe co-authored a paper 2017 on “Global patterns in coronavirus diversity” with Peter Daszak of the EcoHealth Alliance and the EcoHealth PREDICT Consortium. GVFI Vice President Joseph Fair appeared at the Wuhan Institute of Vorology with Dr. Shi Zhengli 2013.

On Oct. 3, 2014, Rosemont Seneca Technologies Partners (RSTP) Managing Director John DeLoche wrote to Hunter Biden that RSTP would “increase our investment in Metabiota by 250 k … They raised about $2.4 mm of which we represent $500 k (250 k from the first investment plus this one). They intended to raise a max. of $1,6 mm but it was oversubscribed. The way to think about this one is that Palantir is to the CIA what Metabiota is to the USDA. … They hope to raise another $15 mm at least $80 mm pre which would be a nice 5x mark-up to our investment.”
On Oct. 9, 2014, John DeLoche wrote to Hunter Biden, Devon Archer, and RSTP manager Rob Walker: “Is there anyone we can call in DC to get a sense of how legit Metabiota is viewed within the various government agencies? We want to make sure we thoroughly do our diligence here, especially as Goldman and now Morgan Stanley will be doing diligence on the fund and Metabiota towards investing in both.
Additionally, who have we introduced them to in DC? Can you please provide a list of the various folks within Cornerstone as well as outside the firm where we have made intros? This data will go in our investment memo which we are trying to compplete and get to potential LPs by Tuesday.”
Rob Walker answered on Oct. 9, 2014: “I am going to have a friend reach out to DoD on the down low.”
