A newly released email from 2017 shows Hunter Biden sending his “best wishes from the entire Biden family” to the chairman of CEFC China while also requesting $10 million to jumpstart their joint venture with the Chinese energy firm.
The email raises even more questions about Democratic President-elect Joe Biden’s past involvement in deals with China. Joe Biden has repeatedly denied having any knowledge of his son’s overseas business dealings. Once again, this appears to be a lie, Fox News reported.
In the email sent on June 18, 2017, Hunter requested that Zhao Runlong “translate my letter to [CEFC] Chairman Ye, please extend my warmest best wishes and that I hope to see the Chairman soon.”
“I hope my letter finds you well. I regret missing you on your last visit to the United States,” he wrote in an attached letter to Ye Jianming, who has reported ties to the Chinese communist government. “Please accept the best wishes from the entire Biden family as well as my partners. We are all hoping to see you here again soon, or in Shanghai.”
Biden noted that he helped found SinoHawk Holdings, the joint venture between his group of investors and China’s CEFC, had and that he lwanted to introduce Ye to Tony Bobulinski, who would “act as the CEO.”
“He is a very close friend of James Gilliar and the Biden family and joined our team to focus on the execution of things as a partner,” Biden said of Bobulinski. “He has invested capital all over the world for some of the world’s wealthiest families.”
“[Bobulinski had] sent a request to [Gongwen Dong] and Director Zang for the funding of the $10 MM USD wire,” Biden added. “I would appreciate if you will send that quickly so we can properly fund and operate Sinohawk.”
According to the report, Ye responded and told Biden that he had “arranged Director Zang and Gongwen Dong to expedite the charter capital input to SinoHawk.”
“I look forward to meeting you in the near future and discussing our joint undertaking. If there is anything I could do please do not hesitate to write to me,” Ye said. “Please accept my best regards to you and your family.”
Yeah. That really looks like the Bidens had no contact with the Chinese, huh?
