Newly released Whatsapp messages between Hunter Biden and an associate of a Chinese Energy Company reveal Hunter urged them to sign a ten million dollar deal because the Bidens were the best at doing exactly what the company’s Chairman wants.
The House Oversight Committee, which is investigating accusations of corruption in the Biden family, released the messages from August 3, 2017. Hunter Biden told an associate of CEFC China Energy: 10 million per annum budget to use to further the interest of the JV, or joint venture. This move to 5 million is completely new to me and is not acceptable obviously. The President’s son goes on to say: I am tired of this Kevin. I can make $5m in salary at any law firm in America. If you think this is about money it’s not. The Biden’s are the best I know at doing exactly what the Chairman wants from this partnership.
The Oversight Committee showed a document that appears to show one of Hunter Biden’s shell companies received $100,000 from the Chinese energy company the next day. According to the committee, the chairman Biden was referring to is Chinese billionaire Ye Jianming who has ties to the Chinese Communist Party’s intelligence gathering agency.
The committee tweet stated: “As more facts come to light, it becomes even more evident that the Bidens put China and their interests first and America last.”
President Biden has denied on many occasions ever speaking with his son about his business dealings. White House Press Secretary Karine Jean Pierre said after the younger Biden agreed to a plea agreement that she’s not going to address it either.
Karinne Jean Pierre: As it relates to anything related to — to Hunter, I’m just not going to respond to it from here.
The Committee released transcripts of an interview with Biden business associate Rob Walker in which he described other messages that hunter sent saying his dad was in the room and used his father as leverage to get a deal done. This investigation is ongoing. Straight from DC, I’m Ray Bogan.
