A newly discovered email reportedly from Hunter Biden’s laptop raises new questions over what his father, Joe Biden, knew about his son’s foreign business dealings.
In an email dated September 21, 2017, Hunter Biden wrote to Cecilia Browning, the general manager of an office building called “House of Sweden,” requesting that “keys” be “made available for new office mates.”
Hunter Biden listed the “new office mates” as being Joe Biden, Jill Biden, Jim Biden, and Gongwen Dong (Chairman Ye CEFC emissary). Hunter Biden also requested a sign made for his office that stated “The Biden Foundation” and “Hudson West (CEFC US).”
CEFC China Energy was a Chinese conglomerate that was among the largest energy companies in China before going out of business a couple of years ago. CNN notes that the company “aligned itself so closely with the Chinese government that it was often hard to distinguish between the two.”
The Daily Caller News Foundation reported:
Hunter Biden’s dealings with CEFC in 2017 were at the center of allegations from his ex-business partner, Tony Bobulinksi, who said in October that Joe Biden was “plainly familiar” with his family’s business dealings in China. Bobulinski was one of the recipients of the much-publicized May 2017 email purportedly referencing Joe Biden as the “big guy” who would hold 10% in a joint-venture deal with Hunter Biden and CEFC. …
CEFC had wired $5 million to Hunter Biden’s company, Hudson West III, less than two months prior to Hunter Biden’s request to Browning that office keys be made for his father and the CEFC emissary, according to a Senate committee report released in September.
The news comes after Hunter Biden acknowledged this week that he is under federal criminal investigation by the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Delaware over his taxes.
The email discovered by the DCNF raises serious questions about what Biden knew about his son’s foreign business dealings, something he claimed to have no knowledge of while on the campaign trail.
“I have never spoken to my son about his overseas business dealings,” Biden claimed while campaigning. “I know Trump deserves to be investigated. He is violating every basic norm of a president. You should be asking him why is he on the phone with a foreign leader, trying to intimidate a foreign leader. You should be looking at Trump.”
Hunter Biden’s claim that he is being investigated only over his taxes does not appear to be accurate, based on a report from Politico.
CNN reported that authorities were investigating “multiple financial issues” including whether Hunter Biden “violated tax and money laundering laws in business dealings in foreign countries, principally China.” The criminal investigation into Hunter Biden began before William Barr became Attorney General of the United States.
One of the other people that Hunter Biden requested a key for, his uncle Jim Biden, is also tied up in a federal investigation, according to Politico.
