US Attorney Jacqueline Romero Caught Donating to Biden Campaign

A prosecutor appointed by President Joe Biden, who faced allegations of retaliatory actions against a colleague involved in the Hunter Biden case, was revealed to have made multiple donations to Joe Biden's presidential campaign, according to public records.

Philadelphia U.S. Attorney Jacqueline Romero, accused of retaliating against Assistant U.S. Attorney Derek Hines, contributed to Joe Biden's campaign twice in November 2020 and three times in the preceding month, as per Federal Election Commission records.

The donations totaled $270 and were made while Romero was employed by the Department of Justice (DOJ), with the DOJ listed as her employer for all contributions.

Romero donated to Democratic Senator Raphael Warnock's campaign in November 2022, along with other Democratic candidates over the years, including former President Obama during his reelection campaign in 2012.

Hunter Biden's overseas business ventures, particularly in Ukraine, Russia, China, Romania, and Kazakhstan, were highlighted by House Republicans in September, pointing to significant overlaps with Joe Biden's vice presidency.

Romero, nominated by President Biden in April 2022 and confirmed by the Senate, assumed office as Philadelphia U.S. Attorney in June 2022, ceasing her political donations after that.

Romero's alleged retaliation against Hines for his involvement in special counsel David Weiss' investigation into Hunter Biden's finances has drawn scrutiny.

Although Hines was permitted to join Weiss' team, sources claim that his access to the office building was later revoked by the Philadelphia U.S. Attorney's office.

Romero's spokesperson denied these claims, stating that Romero had no personal connection to the Biden family and did not express any opinion on the merits of the Hunter Biden investigation.

First Assistant U.S. Attorney Nelson Thayer, accused of informing colleagues that Hines was banned from the office building, also refuted the allegations through Romero's spokesperson. Thayer, like Romero, had contributed to Joe Biden's 2020 presidential campaign, with the Department of Justice listed as his employer.

The addition of Hines and another prosecutor to Weiss' team coincided with IRS whistleblowers' accusations against Delaware Assistant U.S. Attorney Lesley Wolf for allegedly protecting Joe and Hunter Biden as the controversy continues for the Biden administration.
