The former business partner of Hunter Biden who provided emails detailing his business activities with the son of former Vice President Joe Biden was reportedly transferred out of his prison cell.

Bevan Cooney, who is currently serving a prison sentence for fraud, recently gave 26,000 emails to Breitbart News that make “explicit” that Hunter Biden was “trading off the Biden name, the Biden connections, and the Biden access,” according to the outlet’s editor-at-large Peter Schweizer. On Tuesday, Breitbart reported that Cooney was moved out of his cell in Oregon out of concern for his safety.

Journalist Matthew Tyrmand said Cooney was transferred out of his cell around 11 a.m. on Tuesday and communicated with members of his family multiple times, which was “much more than usual.”

“Bevan could sense that things had changed with the rise in visibility of his story,” Tyrmand said. Cooney’s family reportedly told Tyrmand that they were “extremely concerned given the nervousness gleaned from Bevan’s reaction” on Tuesday and “would appreciate a sign from the powers that be that Bevan is in protective custody.”

The Bureau of Prisons declined to comment on any specifics to the Washington Examiner. “For safety and security reasons, we do not discuss specific inmates’ conditions of confinement,” said Bureau of Prisons spokesman Justin Long.

Schweizer said the emails Cooney provided to Breitbart were not a part of the materials reported last week by the New York Post, which allegedly implicate Joe Biden in his son’s business dealings in China and Ukraine. Joe Biden has called the reports a “smear campaign,” but neither he nor his son has disputed the authenticity of the emails obtained from a laptop and hard drive that purportedly belongs to Hunter Biden.

Cooney is serving more than a two-year sentence for “defrauding a Native American tribal entity and various investment advisory clients of tens of millions of dollars in connection with the issuance of bonds by the tribal entity and the subsequent sale of those bonds through fraudulent and deceptive means,” according to the Justice Department. He was convicted alongside Devon Archer and John Galanis, other former partners of Hunter Biden, in the fraud scheme. Archer’s conviction was overturned in 2018, but the U.S. 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals reinstated the conviction earlier this month.

In 2019, the New York Post reported that Cooney was among several associates who allegedly “established bank and financial accounts with Morgan Stanley … for Burisma Holdings Limited … for the money laundering scheme.” Hunter Biden served on the board of Burisma, a Ukrainian gas company, from 2014 to 2019.

On Tuesday, a federal law enforcement officer confirmed to the Washington Examiner that the Justice Department and FBI do not believe the Hunter Biden laptop was connected to a Russia disinformation campaign, siding with Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe and countering claims from Democrats and former intelligence officials that the information can’t be trusted.
