IRS whistleblowers allege that Joe Biden knew what Hunter Biden was up to with his business dealings with Chinese intelligence-linked businesses; however, Joe Biden remains in public denial about his involvement.
Biden said flat out, “No,” when Fox News reporter Jacqui Heinrich asked him, “Did you lie about never speaking with Hunter about his business deals?”
Heinrich hurled the question at the president as he made his way to the exit from an event kicking off the administration’s plan to provide high-speed Internet connectivity for all by 2030.
The White House took heat for letting Hunter Biden accompany his father to Camp David in the wake of the Justice Department’s decision to let him off easily with a plea deal that will spare him jail time. Delaware U.S. Attorney David Weiss announced last week that Biden would agree to plead guilty to two misdemeanors for failing to file tax returns for 2017 and 2018.
Ample Evidence Shows Joe Biden’s Complicity With Hunter Biden Businesses
Those two years were key in terms of his alleged involvement with the Chinese intelligence-linked CEFC China Energy.
A May 2017 email found in Hunter Biden’s abandoned laptop noted that Joe Biden was promised 10 percent of the proceeds from a proposed deal involving an effort by CEFC Energy to a deal in Louisiana. Hunter Biden’s business partner Tony Bobulinski identified Joe Biden as “the Big Guy” named in the email.
A purported WhatsApp! Message from Hunter Biden to a Chinese Communist Party official, provided to the House Ways and Means Committee by IRS whistleblower Gary Shapely, shows that Hunter allegedly used his father to shake him down.
“I am sitting here with my father, and we would like to understand why the commitment made has not been fulfilled,” Hunter Biden told Henry Zhao, the director of Chinese asset management firm Harvest Fund Management. “And, Z, if I get a call or text from anyone involved in this other than you, Zhang or the chairman, I will make certain that between the man sitting next to me and every person he knows and my ability to forever hold a grudge that you will regret not following my direction.”
Emails Show Joe Biden Maintained Close Ties With Hunter Business Associates
Emails from Hunter Biden’s abandoned laptop and those obtained under FOIA by the America First Policy Institute (AFPI) show that Joe Biden had ongoing, close connections with his son’s business partners while he was vice president.
Emails from 2010 found on the laptop show that Joe Biden’s executive assistant, Michele Smith, frequently CC’d Hunter Biden’s business partners on emails.
“Hunter – there is a foreign trip meeting in your Dad’s office with Mom and Dad tomorrow at 1:30 pm. If you are available, I think it would be helpful to you to be there,” Smith wrote in an email in which Hunter Biden’s business partner Eric Schwerin was copied.
The Marco Polo report on the Hunter Biden laptop notes that Schwerin shared a bank account with Joe Biden and paid his bills.
Emails obtained through FOIA show that Schwerin reached out to Smith with a Nov. 19, 2010 email titled “China Lunch.” The text was redacted. Among the suggested attendees included Jim Bulger, nephew of mobster Whitey Bulger and Walmart board member Greg Penner. Schwerin noted that the White House was “desperately trying to get in to China with that Confucious Institute.” Bulger also was a business associate of Hunter Biden’s.
Joe Biden’s denials get increasingly ridiculous as the evidence against him mounts.
