It must stay in his throat.
The wife of a former FBI agent arrested this week for allegedly helping a Russian oligarch has something in common with Hunter Biden – their daughters playing lacrosse, data stored on the first son’s infamous laptop reveals.
Both Pamela McGonigal and Biden received at least 29 emails related to the Next Level Lacrosse program and other sports-related activities from October 7, 2014 to May 7, 2015, according to a search of the first son’s messages.
Two of Biden’s daughters with his first wife Kathleen Buhle — Finnegan and Maisy Biden — were midfielders on the varsity lacrosse team at the exclusive private school Sidwell Friends in Washington, DC, according to online records.
Older sister Finnegan was even named All-League Lacrosse Player for the 2017 spring season by the Independent Schools League, the school announced at the time.
It’s unclear where Pamela and Charles “Charlie” McGonigals’ daughter Sarah attended school or if she played school sports.
Pamela McGonigal did not return an email from The Post seeking comment and blew up her pile while carrying two small dogs outside the couple’s apartment building in Greenwich Village on Wednesday.
“There is no comment and there is no connection,” she angrily told a reporter after yelling at a photographer to “put your camera away.”
“We made it clear that we had nothing to say,” she said.
Emails linking McGonigal and Hunter Biden through their daughters’ lacrosse activities were first reported by the right-wing research group Marco Polo USA.
Charles McGonigal – who is accused of accepting illegal payments from a Russian oligarch and a former Albanian spy – is also linked to Biden through the FBI’s investigation of Chi Ping Patrick Ho, who has been arrested by officers at JFK Airport on November 18, 2017.
At the time, McGonigal was the special agent in charge of the counterintelligence division of the New York field office and court records show that some evidence against Ho came “from electronic surveillance and physical search conducted pursuant to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act”.
It is unclear what role, if any, McGonigal played in obtaining this evidence.
Ho’s bust came just weeks after he and Biden reached a million-dollar deal for Biden to provide “advice on matters relating to U.S. law and advice regarding hiring and legal analysis.” of any American law firm or lawyer,” as The Post first reported in October 2020.
Shortly after Ho’s arrest, according to court records, he made a phone call to Biden’s uncle, James Biden, who in 2018 told The New York Times he believed Ho was trying to reach his nephew and passed on Hunter Biden’s contact information.
Ho was convicted of bribing senior officials in Chad and Uganda on behalf of CEFC China Energy Co. and was deported to Hong Kong in June 2020 after serving a three-year prison sentence.
McGonigal faces charges in federal court in Manhattan, where he was released on bail after pleading not guilty on Monday, and in federal court in Washington DC, where he appeared virtually from his team’s Midtown Manhattan office. defense.
Lead defense attorney Seth Ducharme, a former acting U.S. attorney from Brooklyn, pleaded not guilty on his client’s behalf and said during the proceedings that he was eager to see the evidence in the case because there were “unusual facts” in the indictment.
Ducharme did not elaborate on the remark but said Monday, “We have a lot of confidence in Mr. McGonigal.”
Ducharme did not return an email Wednesday seeking comment on the emails to Pamela McGonigal and the Ho investigation.
