Ex UK Secret Intelligence Service chief: Hunter Biden should've 'run a mile' from Burisma job offer
Sir Richard Dearlove made the comment on the "One Decision" podcast aired Thursday

Updated: October 7, 2021 - 12:32pm

The former chief of MI6 – the United Kingdom's Secret Intelligence Service – says presidential son Hunter Biden accepting a board post with the Ukrainian energy company Burisma Holdings made his father "potentially vulnerable."

Ex-spy boss Sir Richard Dearlove made the comment in a podcast released Thursday, according to the Daily Mail.

Hunter Biden took the high-paying job while father President Joe Biden was vice president, which raised questions – especially during the 2020 presidential campaign – about whether the son was hired for his potential to influence his father and more largely U.S. foreign policy in Ukraine.

Dearlove also said on the "One Decision" podcast the Bidens should have "run a mile" from the offer of a job when made in roughly 2014.

When asked whether the controversy around former President Trump's engagement with Ukraine had overshadowed the Biden family's Ukraine connections, Dearlove responded: "I think Biden and Biden's son were incredibly unwise."

Dearlove, who host the podcast with former CNN journalist Michelle Kosinski, also said, "We don't actually know a lot, but I mean the idea that Ukraine ring up and offer you a job and you know offer you some board position, which Hunter had, I mean God he should have run a mile. … He shouldn't have been anywhere near it."

And meanwhile the MSM is running non stop stories about Trump that he demanded that the DOJ over turn the election results. Not nary a word about this mess with Hunter.

Report: Emails Reveal Joe Biden’s Brother-in-Law Asked Hunter Biden to Obtain a Business License in China

Emails reveal President Joe Biden’s brother-in-law John Owens requested Hunter Biden obtain a business license in Communist China on May 9, 2014, according to Fox News. It is unclear if Hunter charged or obtained any success fee for connecting the two parties. The reported emails do reveal, however, the Biden family’s business connections to Communist China.

Owens, who also goes by Jack, reportedly emailed Hunter, requesting a “business license to expand his telemedicine company in China” and expressed the license needed to be “secured very quickly.”

Owens reportedly told Hunter that his companies, MediGuide America and MediGuide Insurance Services International (MISI), would not be able to complete the deal without a “Chinese Business License.” The deal was reportedly in a late or “serious stage” in negotiations with an insurance company based in Communist China.

“Time pressures are very tight, plus the fact that we do not yet have one has caused a slight credibility bump in the company’s mind. This all translates into a need for a Business License, and one secured very quickly,” Owens reportedly wrote in an email. “While this might seem to be a mundane task, I have come to understand that matters such as a Business License can end up taking an inordinate amount of time…..time we just do not have.”

Hunter replied to Owens within an hour and said, “Working on it-back to you ASAP.”

“The younger Biden then forwarded Owens’ email to Thornton Group Chairman James Bulger, the nephew of mobster Whitey Bulger, and co-founder of the Thornton Group,” Fox News reported.

Hunter also forwarded the email to Michael Lin, who reportedly has connections to the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). “See email below. It’s from my Uncle Jack. Is there a way we can help him expedite this? Time is of the essence here,” Hunter wrote to Lin.

Thornton Group Chairman Bulger responded to Hunter the next day and said he would speak to Lin about how to obtain the license for Hunter’s family.

“Me and Michael [Lin] had a call with Jack this morning I think we have a solution for hi China problem,” Bulger wrote. “Michael and Ran are researching the regs and laws right now but our Thornton WOFE will likely be ok for Jacks company to use,” Bulger continued, “likely referring to the wholly foreign-owned enterprise of the Thornton Group, the company Bulger and Lin co-founded,” Fox News reported.

After a few days, Bulger followed up with Lin, Owens, and Hunter.

“Give us until Monday to review a few more laws and regulations in Beijing,” Bulger wrote. “I may have you answer a few question on Monday so we can get specific with the appropriate authority’s in China.”

It is unknown if Bulger was successful in reaching the “appropriate authority in China,” but Mediguide’s company website, presumably owned by President Joe Biden’s brother-in-law, Owens, states it has “an agreement with AnyHealth Shanghai.”

“MediGuide and Any Health intend to expand MediGuide’s business in China under the name of ‘MediGuide China,’” the website states. “AnyHealth Shanghai will be legally representing MediGuide International LLC in China. ”

Fox News notes that “t is unclear if AnyHealth Shanghai is the same company referenced in the emails.”

The Washington Post confirmed in 2020 that Owens’ owns “a Delaware-based telemedicine company that markets itself as a solution amid pandemic restrictions, with medical second-opinion operations in Europe and Asia.”

Fox News also reported that Owns accepted an invitation in 2015 to attend a State Department event “honoring” Chinese President Xi Jinping hosted by Joe Biden.

“Yes Kathy,” Owens responded then-Vice President Biden’s executive assistant Kathy Chung. “I would like to attend this one. I know I have passed up everything else, but this is a bit different. I just rec’d this so I do not know what VBO [Valerie Biden Owens] is going to do. Do you have my info to respond with picture, etc, or do you want me to do that.”

Fox News reached out to the White House and asked if “any senior officials from the Biden White House or the Eisenhower Executive Office Building (EEOB) have been in contact with Mediguide staff or affiliates since Biden took office in January.”

“No,” the White House replied.

Neither Mediguide, Owens, Bulger, Lin and Hunter’ lawyer respond to requests for comment by Fox News.

It should be noted president-elect Biden told CNN in 2020 that none of his family would be involved in any business scheme which would have the appearance of a conflict of interest.

“My son, my family will not be involved in any business, any enterprise that is in conflict with or appears to be in conflict,” Biden said.

By JOSH BOSWELL FOR DAILYMAIL.COM

PUBLISHED: 13:59 EDT, 12 October 2021 | UPDATED: 15:54 EDT, 12 October 2021

President Joe Biden could become embroiled in an FBI investigation of Hunter's finances, experts say, as emails reveal the father and son shared accounts and paid each other's bills.

Emails recovered by DailyMail.com from Hunter's abandoned laptop between Hunter and Eric Schwerin, his business partner at consultancy Rosemont Seneca, show Schwerin was working on Joe's taxes, discussing the father and son paying each other's household bills, and even fielding requests for a book deal for the then-vice president, as well as managing the donation of Joe's senate papers to the University of Delaware.

It is unclear why Schwerin had this intimate role in the vice president's affairs rather than government officials in the Office of the Vice President.

Hunter's claim that he and his father shared a bank account also raises serious questions whether funds from the alleged joint account were used for Hunter's May 2018 week-long bender with a prostitute in a Hollywood hotel.

Last December, Hunter admitted in a public statement that he was under federal investigation over his tax affairs.

A former federal prosecutor and expert on money laundering and criminal tax law tells DailyMail.com that if money was flowing between Hunter and his father, that could make Joe a target of the probe – but that investigators would have a tough time sitting down with the president.

'Whatever transaction you're looking at, if there's a connection to a family member or a friend, sure the answer is yes [they would be investigated],' the ex-prosecutor, who asked not to be named, said.

'Obviously, if you're talking about the President of the United States, you'd better have a pretty damn good reason to talk to that person.'

Hunter’s Laptop Emails Show Funds Intermingled with Dad’s
Flickr/Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff/CC BY 2.0

By MIKE HUCKABEE Published on October 13, 2021

When Joe Biden said he had never even spoken with son Hunter about his son’s foreign business affairs, the opposite was true, and today we all know it. Recall that he said on CBS News in October of 2019, “I have never discussed my business or their business, my son’s or daughter’s … because I know where I have to do my job, and that’s it, and they have to make their own judgments.” In Spartanburg, South Carolina, in August of 2019, he said, “I’ve never discussed with my son or my brother or anyone else anything having to do with their businesses. Period.” And he stated flatly to Fox News’ Peter Doocy, “I’ve never spoken to my son about his overseas business dealings.”

Millions of people believed those words when they voted for him, but according to a McLaughlin & Associates poll, 4.6 percent of Biden voters — easily enough to swing the election — said they wouldn’t have voted for him for President if they had known about his family’s business dealings with China.

Social media has continued to hush that up, even when it meant censoring the venerable New York Post, which broke the laptop story. It was labeled “Russian disinformation.” (By the way, that’s how you “rig” an election before you’ve cast even one fraudulent ballot.) Today, Biden is President of the United States, and life has gone on for the son of the President, with the news of him selling five of his “artworks” the other day for $75,000 a pop to mysterious unnamed buyers.

All I can tell you about their identity is that they were not me.

New Revelations of The Laptop From Hell
The Post has remained on the laptop story, however, with investigative reporter Miranda Devine scheduled to release her book on the grimy subject, Laptop From Hell, in about a month. And Britain’s Daily Mail is on it, too. They’ve just reported on more emails from Hunter’s abandoned laptop — one of, at last count, three laptops that were either lost, stolen, or left behind — that show much more financial “intersectionality” between Hunter’s life and Joe’s. These include exchanges with Eric Schwerin, Hunter’s business partner at consultancy firm Rosemont Seneca, who also did his taxes. Schwerin was quite plugged into then-Vice President Joe Biden’s affairs — more so, it seems, than was the White House — even fielding offers for a book deal and managing the donation of his Senate papers to the University of Delaware. Typically, White House officials handle such donations, not outside business managers.

According to the Daily Mail, Joe Biden and his son even shared bank accounts and paid each other’s bills. The way they shifted funds around raises questions about whether money from Hunter’s dealings with both China- and Russia-based businesses was sent to their joint accounts.

What About That FBI Investigation?
That’s why President Biden could be drawn into the FBI investigation of his son.

As a former prosecutor and expert on money laundering and criminal tax law said to the Daily Mail, “Whatever transaction you’re looking at, if there’s a connection to a family member or a friend, sure, the answer is yes [they would be investigated].”

One thing that might be discovered is whether or not funds from their joint father-and-son accounts were used to pay for Hunter’s week-long bender with a prostitute in May of 2018. But the sleazefest is really just one aspect of this. The Daily Mail report has much more detail on the nature of what the FBI might be looking at, and it’s bad, including corruption, money laundering, and selling influence.

John Cassara, a former U.S. intelligence officer and Treasury special agent who specialized in money laundering investigations, said that “if Joe were not President, he would probably be in prosecutors’ crosshairs right now along with his son.” (I might say it another way: if he were not a Democrat President.)

Ironically, what makes all of this especially egregious is that Biden is President.

“This sort of thing should not be happening,” Cassara said. “It undermines the full faith in the U.S. government. It undermines trust and our international reputation. It’s an embarrassment.”

Attorney General Merrick Garland — “Weak as Water”
Fox News senior analyst Brit Hume appeared with Tucker Carlson Tuesday night to comment on this. A master of understatement, he first noted that “clearly, Hunter Biden crossed ethical lines in the activities he engaged in.” The idea that President Biden himself or his campaign might have profited from, say, Hunter’s dealings in Ukraine would “move the matter up quite another notch and add one more thing to the reasons why Joe Biden’s popularity rating has been plummeting…”

When asked by Carlson if we could be certain that Attorney General Merrick Garland will conduct a “free and fair” investigation into both men, Hume had one word: “NO.”

Why such negativity? Simply put (and we agree), “The one thing that this Merrick Garland has turned out to be, for all of his reputation as being a fine jurist and a man who deserved a seat on the Supreme Court, he appears to be weak as water when it comes to upholding the independence of the Department of Justice and keeping the Justice Department out of politically-motivated investigations.”

Looking into parents’ behavior as if they were terrorists, he said, is “something that no sensible attorney general would ever allow himself to be involved in or give the green light to, and yet he did it. So, no, I don’t think we can depend on that at all. It might depend on investigative journalism to uncover this, or congressional investigations if the Republicans ever get control of one or both houses of Congress.”

What Can We Expect Moving Toward 2022?
He hopes that if the New York Post comes out with another Hunter laptop expose, the mainstream media will not respond as “disgracefully” as they did last time with their move to shut it down. He doesn’t expect mainstream media to put their own investigative teams on it, though. They’d probably just minimally follow the story on a day-to-day basis. “That would be about the most we could hope for, but that’s a lot better than nothing, which is what we got last year from these, I think, politically corrupt news organizations.”

He used the border story as an example of something that wasn’t widely reported at first but that has finally broken through, as it’s so big the mainstream media can’t get away with ignoring it. The same thing could happen with this.

He also pointed out that a President’s approval ratings are always a major factor in the midterm elections, and Biden’s are in the dumper, in part because of this.

(I would add that it’s hard to tell how much of the drop is because of Hunter, as there are so many Joe Biden-caused catastrophes.) Hume sees the Democrats’ outlook for 2022, especially in the House, as “very poor” and thinks it’s likely they’ll be swept out of both Houses. I’ve never been much on the concept of early voting, but in this case I wish we could vote today.

Peter Navarro to Newsmax: Bidens in Back Pockets of China

(Newsmax/''Eric Bolling: The Balance'')
By Nick Koutsobinas | Wednesday, 13 October 2021 06:42 PM

Video on website 3:20 min

Peter Navarro, former director of the Office of Trade and Manufacturing Policy during the Trump administration, asserted to Newsmax that President Joe Biden is in the "back pockets of the Chinese Communist Party," adding that Biden's weakness could start a war.

"There's no question that the Bidens are in the back pockets of the Chinese Communist Party. But it runs even deeper," Navarro said Wednesday on "Eric Bolling: The Balance."

"Many of the people that are in the highest-ranking offices, in the National Security Council, in the White House, in the State Department and elsewhere have been proved by websites such as The National Pulse to be compromised through money pots by the Chinese Communist Party.

''And I wouldn't be surprised at the kind of influence the CCP has over President Biden would extend to his choice of appointees and different layers of government. This is a very dangerous situation," Navarro added.

According to a Daily Mail report on Wednesday, Biden could be roped into an FBI investigation involving his son Hunter Biden after reports surfaced that the two had shared financial accounts and paid each other's bills.

The news comes after a previous report of Hunter Biden listing his artwork in Georges Bergès Gallery. Bergès has strong ties to China. Berges has said he travels to China three of four times a year.

According to Navarro, an inkling of corruption involving China is a dangerous prospect.

"We've got a situation where Biden is not only wrecking our border, he's wrecking our economies, wrecking Afghanistan, but his weakness is going to create war. It's ... about as far away as peace through strength as Reagan and Trump had.

''And that's one of the biggest things I'm concerned about, is we've got planes, Chinese Communist planes strafing over the Taiwan straits now," Navarro added.

Is It Time For A Special Counsel On The Hunter Biden Scandal?

THURSDAY, OCT 14, 2021 - 05:20 PM
Authored by Jonathan Turley,

“Come on H this is linked to Celtic’s account.” Those nine words from a retired Secret Service agent to Hunter Biden in recently released emails may prove a nasty complication for some in Washington who have struggled to contain the blowback from the still-unfolding scandal linked to Hunter Biden’s infamous laptop.

“Celtic” was the Secret Service code name for Joe Biden, and recent disclosures may puncture the media’s cone-of-silence around the scandal. The emails link President Biden to his son’s accounts and indicate a comingling of funds with money coming from controversial foreign sources. Even more embarrassing, the shared account many have been used to pay a Russian prostitute named “Yanna.”

The comingling of funds is the latest contraction of President Biden’s repeated claims that he was unaware and uninvolved in past dealings by his son. Given these links, there are legitimate questions of why the Justice Department has not sought a special counsel in the ongoing investigation of alleged money-laundering and tax violations linked to the president’s son. More importantly, even if there are no criminal charges, there is now a compelling need for an independent report on the alleged influence peddling operation by Hunter, his uncle James Biden, and potentially his father, President Biden.

In the latest disclosures from the laptop, a former secret service agent reportedly texted Hunter on May 24, 2018, when he was holed up with a Russian prostitute in an expensive room at The Jeremy Hotel in Los Angeles. Hunter wired the woman $25,000. That alone was nothing out of the ordinary for Hunter who, while his father served as vice president, seemed to divide his time equally between influence-peddling and personal debaucheries.

Hunter clearly only had influence and access to sell. We know now that foreign interests gave Hunter millions at a time that he admits that he was a crack addict and alcoholic — in his words, “Drinking a quart of vodka a day by yourself in a room is absolutely, completely debilitating,” as well as “smoking crack around the clock.”

However, the tranche of emails raises a new and disturbing element: the possible mixing of accounts and funds between Hunter and his father. If true, President Biden could be directly implicated in ongoing investigations into his son’s money transfers and dealings.


Most notable are the new emails from Eric Schwerin, his business partner at the Rosemont Seneca consultancy, referencing the payment of household bills for both Joe Biden and Hunter Biden. He also notes that he was transferring money from Joe Biden. If true, the communications indicate that some of President Biden’s personal expenses were paid out of shared accounts with Hunter, including accounts that may have been used to pay for prostitutes.

Rosemont Seneca is directly involved in the alleged influence peddling schemes and questionable money transfers from Chinese and Russian sources.

Schwerin also was involved in President Biden’s taxes and discussions of a book deal for the then-vice president; he popped up in the donation of Biden’s official papers to the University of Delaware, with restrictions on access.

President Biden has long insisted that that his son did “nothing wrong.” That is obviously untrue. One can argue over whether Hunter committed any crime, but few would say that there is nothing wrong with raw influence peddling worth millions with foreign entities. The public has a legitimate reason to know whether the President or his family ran an influence peddling operation worth millions.

Given this record, there is little reason for the public to trust what it is reading about the scandal. The media has long refused to investigate the allegations or even report on emails contradicting the President. This was most evident when social media like Twitter actually blocked postings on the laptop or its content before the election. Powerful figures then issued false statements about the scandal to the public. Committee Chairman Adam Schiff who assured the pubic that the allegations against “this whole smear on Joe Biden comes from the Kremlin.” Some 50 former intelligence officials, including Obama’s CIA directors John Brennan and Leon Panetta, also insisted the laptop story was likely the work of Russian intelligence. The laptop is now recognized as genuine.

This is not the first contradiction for President Biden in his repeated denials of knowing anything about his son’s business dealings. Hunter himself contradicted his father’s repeated denial. Likewise, a key business associate of Hunter Biden, Anthony Bobulinski, confirmed the authenticity of the emails and accused Joe Biden of lying about his involvement. Bobulinski has detailed a meeting with Joe Biden in a hotel to go over the dealings.

Past emails included discussions of offering access to then-Vice President Biden. They also include alleged payments to Joe Biden. In one email, there is a discussion of a proposed equity split of “20” for “H” and “10 held by H for the big guy?” Bobulinski confirmed that “H” was used for Hunter Biden and that his father was routinely called “the big guy” in these discussions.

Just to make things more concerning is Hunter Biden’s recent acknowledgement that one of his laptops may have been stolen by Russian agents and was likely being used for blackmail purposes. The fact that the president’s son admitted that Russians may have intentionally seized one of his laptops during a drug binge, in order to blackmail him, raises serious potential national security concerns — especially if any of the emails include compromising information about the president direct benefiting from the very same accounts used by his son.

That creates a rather nasty problem at the Justice Department. Federal regulations allow the appointment of a special counsel when it is in the public interest and an “investigation or prosecution of that person or matter by a United States Attorney’s Office or litigating Division of the Department of Justice would present a conflict of interest for the Department or other extraordinary circumstances.”

I do not see direct evidence of criminal conduct by President Biden even if he lied about his past knowledge of this son’s conduct. Indeed, influence peddling is not a per se crime even for Hunter. However, one value of a Special Counsel is the expectation of a report that can address whether the family engaged in influence peddling with foreign powers and whether foreign powers may have acquired compromising material from these laptop files.

In 2017, Democratic members activists were adamant that the Justice Department should carry out an investigation involving President Trump and his family. Then-Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) insisted that, without a special counsel, “every American will rightfully suspect … a coverup.”

There is already a federal criminal investigation into these matters involving Hunter Biden, and the latest emails now link President Biden receiving money and benefits from related accounts as well as key players. Even if one questions a direct conflict of interest, it is hard to deny the towering appearance of a conflict in the ongoing investigation.

“The Big Guy” is now president and his administration is handling an investigation that could have political as well as legal implications for him and his family. It may be time for a special counsel.

AChinese state-run oil and gas company linked to the son of the President of the United States, Hunter Biden, hit record levels of production amidst President Biden’s decision to halt the construction of the Keystone XL Pipeline.

Sinopec, also known as China Petroleum & Chemical Corporation, is a Chinese Communist regime-controlled oil and gas enterprise. Its “fully-owned subsidiary” Sinopec Marketing Company enjoyed nearly $1 billion in investment from Hunter Biden’s private equity firm BHR Partners.

Finalized in March 2015, the investments from the controversial investment fund led to BHR Partners amassing a nearly 30 percent stake in Sinopec.
Hunter reportedly still owns a 10 percent stake in BHR Partners.

China First.
Under the Biden government, Sinopec’s Fuling Shale Gas Field hit a country-wide record for production quantity.

A company press release notes:

Fuling Shale Gas Field – the first commercially developed and operated large-scale shale gas field in China – announced on October 8 that it has produced 40 billion cubic meters of shale gas, setting a new record for the cumulative production of shale gas in the country.

BHR Partner’s LinkedIn profile highlights its Sinopec investment, revealing it was involved “in the pilot state-owned enterprise reform deal involving the segregation and capitalization of Sinopec Group’s non-oil business into Sinopec Marketing Corporation.”

Sinopec’s record-breaking success follows the Biden regime’s assault on American energy independence, including the cancellation of the critical Keystone XL Pipeline and shutting down oil and gas lease sales from federal land in his first days in office.

BIDEN ADMINISTRATION
Emails Reveal Hunter Biden’s Relationship With Shadowy Chinese Tycoon

Biden acknowledged the businessman's interest 'has everything to do with my last name'

1634277227619.png

Chuck Ross• October 13, 2021 1:40 pm

Hunter Biden said his business relationship with a mysterious Chinese tycoon later arrested on money laundering charges had "everything to do with my last name," previously unreported emails show.

Biden and his associates met in April 2010 with businessman Che Fung to lay the groundwork for a partnership to invest in companies in China and the United States, according to emails from Biden's abandoned laptop. Other emails show the Biden consortium discussing a deal with Che's company, Ever Union Capital, to invest up to $150 million in partnership with China's sovereign wealth fund. In a Sept. 23, 2011, email to his partner Devon Archer, Biden admitted Che wanted to work with him because of his father, then-vice president Joe Biden.

The emails provide another example of the younger Biden using his family name to further his foreign business interests, undercutting Joe Biden's claims to the contrary. Hunter Biden landed a high-paying position on the board of Ukrainian energy company Burisma Holdings in 2014, just as his father was taking over the Obama administration's Ukraine portfolio. Some of Biden's associates recognized the importance of his family ties to their business deals. One Biden partner touted the "political and strategic value of the Biden family" during 2017 negotiations with a Chinese energy conglomerate.

Che's fate raises the likelihood that Chinese authorities knew of Biden's business dealings. Che, who is reported to be the son-in-law of a former chief of China's central bank, was arrested on Feb. 2, 2015, on charges that he laundered $15 billion. According to one report, Che provided investigators with details of his business activity. It is unclear if he discussed his links to Biden, though the Chinese government would likely have been interested in details of his interactions with the son of an American vice president.

Republicans have asserted that Biden's foreign business dealings created blackmail opportunities against the Biden family. Sen. Chuck Grassley (R., Iowa) and Sen. Ron Johnson (R., Wis.) said in a report last year that Biden's partnerships presented "serious counterintelligence and extortion concerns."

The Biden emails portray an air of mystery surrounding Che, who has been described in press reports as "shadowy and discreet." Biden and his business partners referred to Che cryptically as "Super Chairman" and "Mr. Che." His full name is mentioned in just one email from April 2010 that sets up an introductory lunch meeting in Washington, D.C., between the mogul and the Biden consortium.

While the emails show Biden and his partners discussing details of the investment fund, they do not indicate what came of the negotiations with Che.

But the businessmen involved in the discussions would later partner on one of Biden's most controversial business deals. One email from the laptop describes Che as a "close business partner" of Chinese investment banker Jonathan Li.

Biden has come under scrutiny for introducing his father to Li during an official U.S. government trip to Beijing in 2013. Emails show that Li, Biden, and two other businessmen, James Bulger and Michael Lin, discussed the investment fund with Che. According to one email, Che planned to commit $100 million to the partnership while granting an investment stake to China Investment Corporation, the Chinese government's sovereign wealth fund, and other "high power" Chinese firms.

Biden, Archer, Li, Lin, and Bulger in 2013 formed the private equity firm Bohai Harvest Rosemont Partners, known as BHR Partners. Biden has come under fire for failing to divest a 10-percent ownership stake in the partnership, even though he pledged to do so in 2019. The White House has refused to answer questions about the investment.

Emails show Biden and Archer saw the deal with Che as a huge financial opportunity and a way to gain influence with investment companies, such as Blackstone and the Carlyle Group, that sought business in China.

"I dont believe in lottery tickets anymore, but I do believe in the super chairman," Biden wrote to Archer in a September 23, 2011, email. "Things are moving rapidly and the percentage he is offering me is much larger than I at first thought," he added.

"This can be a serious opportunity," Archer wrote. "Not only … from an economics standpoint but from the leverage in access it provides with the big boys here in the west who all need China."

Archer was indicted in 2016 on charges that he and a group of business associates defrauded a Native American tribe in a $60 million bond scheme. Biden himself is under federal investigation by the U.S. attorney's office in Delaware over his tax affairs and foreign business dealings.

Che is not the only Biden-linked Chinese tycoon to run afoul of Chinese authorities. Biden formed a close relationship with Ye Jianming, the president of the CEFC China Energy. CEFC paid Biden at least $6 million in 2016 and 2017, according to the report released by Grassley and Johnson. Of that sum, CEFC paid Biden $1 million to represent CEFC executive Patrick Ho, who was charged with violating the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act by offering bribes to two African officials during the United Nations General Assembly in 2012. Chinese authorities in 2018 arrested Ye on fraud charges.

None of Biden's partners responded to requests for comment about Che. Biden's lawyer also did not respond to a request for comment.

Report: Hunter Biden Said Offer from Powerful Chinese Investor Had ‘Everything to Do with My Last Name’

WENDELL HUSEBØ and EZRA DULIS15 Oct 2021467

Newly-unveiled emails reveal Hunter Biden admitted a Chinese businessman was solely interested in a business deal due to his “last name” — or his association with his father, then-Vice President Joe Biden.

The Washington Free Beacon reported Wednesday on emails dated 2010-2011 between Hunter Biden and his business partner Devon Archer regarding Che Fung — head of the Chinese investment company Ever Union Capital — several years before Che was arrested on money laundering charges in Beijing. These emails were discovered on the infamous laptop Biden abandoned in a Delaware repair shop.

Reporter Chuck Ross says Hunter wrote in September 2011 that his business deal with Che — nicknamed “Super Chairman” and “Mr. Che” in other emails — had “everything to do with my last name.” The emails reveal Hunter met with Che in April of 2010 to negotiate a deal with Ever Union Capital to invest nearly $150 million in the Communist regime’s sovereign wealth fund. It is unclear whether this potential deal was ever completed.

The revealed emails also reportedly indicate Hunter and business partner Archer saw the business connection to Che as an opportunity to make connections with large financial institutions, such as Blackstone and Carlyle Group, which reportedly sought business deals in China.

“I dont [sic] believe in lottery tickets anymore, but I do believe in the super chairman,” Hunter wrote on September 23, 2011, according to the report.

“Things are moving rapidly and the percentage he is offering me is much larger than I at first thought.”

“This can be a serious opportunity,” Archer allegedly replied. “Not only … from an economics standpoint but from the leverage in access it provides with the big boys here in the west who all need China.”

Ross identifies Che as the son-in-law of a former chief of China’s central bank, who was reportedly arrested in February 2015 and accused of laundering $15 billion.

In 2016, Archer and a business associate was indicted on charges for defrauded a Native American tribe in a $60 million bond scheme. As for Hunter, federal prosecutors in Delaware are reportedly working with the FBI and the IRS to investigate his finances.

Peter Schweizer’s Secret Empires revealed that in 2013, Joe Biden’s son Hunter Biden’s firm signed a billion-dollar deal with a subsidiary of the Chinese government’s Bank of China just 10 days after Joe and Hunter Biden flew to China aboard Air Force Two. Ross connects this scandal to the meeting with Che:
[T]he businessmen involved in the discussions would later partner on one of Biden’s most controversial business deals. One email from the laptop describes Che as a “close business partner” of Chinese investment banker Jonathan Li.
Biden has come under scrutiny for introducing his father to Li during an official U.S. government trip to Beijing in 2013. Emails show that Li, Biden, and two other businessmen, James Bulger and Michael Lin, discussed the investment fund with Che. According to one email, Che planned to commit $100 million to the partnership while granting an investment stake to China Investment Corporation, the Chinese government’s sovereign wealth fund, and other “high power” Chinese firms.
Biden, Archer, Li, Lin, and Bulger in 2013 formed the private equity firm Bohai Harvest Rosemont Partners, known as BHR Partners. Biden has come under fire for failing to divest a 10-percent ownership stake in the partnership, even though he pledged to do so in 2019. The White House has refused to answer questions about the investment. [hyperlink added]
China is not the only foreign nation where Joe Biden’s family members set up business interests. Schweizer has called out the “Biden 5” — Hunter (son), James (brother), Frank (brother), Valerie (sister), and Ashley (daughter) — for shady deals in Costa Rica, Iraq, Kazakhstan, Russia, and Ukraine, as well.

Despite the reported business dealings with foreign companies, Joe Biden said in October of 2019 that none of his family members would have a “business relationship with anyone that relates to a foreign corporation or a foreign country.”

“Period. Period. End of story,” Biden stated.

Abundant evidence has emerged to undermine this confident declaration from now-President Biden.

Pinkerton: Joe’s Presidency Is Building Hunter Biden Back Bigger

JAMES P. PINKERTON16 Oct 2021180

Catch Me If You Can
We’ve been hearing a lot these days about the Biden administration’s $3.5 trillion Build Back Better (BBB) plan that has been tangled up in Congress with uncertain prospects of success.

However, there’s one Biden plan that’s going along nicely.
That would be the BHBBB plan, which stands for Building Hunter Biden Back Bigger. Bigger as in bigger bank account.

As Breitbart News reported recently, “Hunter Biden, the president’s son, reportedly sold at least five pieces of art for $75,000 each at his Los Angeles exhibit on October 1.” To put that another way, that’s $375,000—at least. How much of that goes to Hunter? How much for middlemen? And how much for anyone else?

These are all important questions, but unfortunately we don’t have any answers because Hunter’s not telling. As he said recently of the critical and the curious, “F*ck ‘em.”

In response, ethics experts have stated the obvious, namely that there should be full transparency about Hunter’s financial affairs. And yet the White House is having none of that full disclosure stuff.

Just on October 12, when asked by Breitbart News’ Charlie Spiering about Hunter’s art sales, White House press secretary Jen Psaki answered, “We still do not know and will not know who purchases any paintings and the president remains proud of his son.”

Got that? With apologies to Sergeant Schultz of Hogan’s Heroes, “We see nothing! We know nothing!” (This at the same time when the Biden administration wants the IRS to track every American’s transactions over $600.)
In the meantime, we are supposed to trust Hunter, his art dealer, and his art purchasers—whoever they might be.

So we have no idea if Hunter is making thousands or hundreds of thousands or maybe even millions from his art gig. It’s all a giant question mark. And yet at the same time, lots of money from who knows where is hiding in plain sight.

But there’s one thing we can be sure of: Hunter has needed money. Yes, he’s made millions in a three-decade career basking in the golden aura of his famous father, and yet he’s also spent money like a drunken sailor—or most specifically, like a crack addict.

For more insight into Hunter’s high life and high times, we might consider the candid assessment rendered by one of his business contacts. Back in January 2015, when Joe Biden was vice president, one wheeler-dealer wrote an e-mail to another wheeler-dealer laying out the upsides and downsides of hiring Hunter to work on a Libya deal.

The upside was that Hunter “has access to highest level in PRC.” That is, the People’s Republic of China. Yet there were were downsides too: “His negatives are that he is alcoholic, drug addict – kicked [out] of U.S. Army for cocaine, chasing low class hookers, constantly needs money-liquidity problems and many more headaches.” (Correction: Hunter was kicked out of the U.S. Navy.)

Hunter did not get that gig.

We can also look to another close observer, Hunter’s now-ex-wife, Kathleen Buhle Biden, who declared in a 2017 court filing, “Mr. Biden has created financial concerns for the family by spending extravagantly on his own interests (including drugs, alcohol, prostitutes, strip clubs, and gifts for women with whom he has sexual relations) while leaving the family with no funds to pay legitimate bills.”

Such bad-boy behavior culminated in the notorious case of Hunter’s laptop.

Reports on that wayward machine—and of all those juicy files and videos—first appeared in the New York Post in October 2020, just three weeks prior to the presidential election. And yet as we all remember, the Post’s reports were suppressed not only by the Main Stream Media, but also by Silicon Valley social media. And this suppressing seems to have had a substantial effect on the election. A poll taken a few days after the voting revealed that if Americans had known the full story of Hunter’s laptop–and that its contents were true and not Russian forgeries–Donald Trump would have been re-elected. (A year later, the Post recalled ruefully of the story-suppressors, “None of them has learned any lesson except that it worked: Big Tech and Big Media got their way, at the expense of our democracy.”)

Okay, so back to Hunter. After all this trouble, one might have assumed that Hunter would want to fade into obscurity. But anyone who thought that did not know Hunter!

The son was prominent at his father’s inaugural, being seen frequently in the company of the new 46th president. What Russian or Chinese billionaire—to say nothing of every other billionaire around the world, the kind that has hired Hunter in the past—could have failed to notice this proximity? One might even say that it’s as if Hunter was standing there next to his father with a giant neon sign proclaiming, “I’M WITH HIM! I CAN GET TO HIM!!”

During this time, Sen. Charles Grassley (R-IA) wondered aloud whether Hunter should have registered with the Justice Department under the legal requirements of the Foreign Agent Registration Act (FARA). In fact, no member of the Biden family—and many of them became international political operators—has ever registered under FARA.

We should note that Politico reported in June that the Justice Department was investigating possible FARA violations by a firm connected to Hunter, and so we’ll have to see where, if anywhere, that goes.

Yet in the meantime, Hunter, being always a Biden, was putting himself even more on display. This spring he published a memoir, in which he wrote of himself, “I was smoking crack every 15 minutes.”

And just like Joe Biden, Hunter was talking plenty. As he said during his book tour in April, “Yeah, I went one time for 13 days without sleeping, and smoking crack, and drinking vodka exclusively throughout that entire time.”

Yet interestingly enough, his past wastrel ways notwithstanding, Hunter still seems to be doing fine. Last July, it was reported that he lives in a 3,000-square-foot house in Malibu overlooking the Pacific Ocean that rents for $20,000 a month.

So where is his money coming from? Might he, for instance, have received some sort of advance payment for his art or for anything else? In recent months, this author has speculated on these and other possibilities, here, and here, although it’s hard to keep up with all the possible sources and suspicions. There always seems to be more. For example, on October 15, we learned of yet another of Hunter’s Chinese business deals when the Washington Free Beacon revealed a new trove of his emails from a decade ago, in which Hunter conceded (or bragged?) that his value to the Chinese “had everything to do with my last name.”

We can step back and see: All during his time as a cocaine addict with shady business dealings with the Chinese and other foreign entities (remember Burisma?), Hunter has been playing an extended game of Catch Me If You Can. And yet official Washington and all those media watchdogs have shown little interest in even reporting on him, let alone catching him. Maybe that’s why there’s been no Robert Mueller-style special counsel investigation.

But this lack of interest could finally be changing. The establishment media might finally be catching up.

The Delaware Way and the Maryland Way
A reporter named Ben Schreckinger at Politico has been on the Biden family beat for some time now, and his impact is being felt. Back in July 2020, Schreckinger published an article on the Biden family’s financial dealings, national and international.

Notably, the Politico man took note of the “Delaware Way,” which the journalist defined as “a culture of favor trading and cronyism.” Schreckinger added that local prosecutors, pursuing a case that overlapped with (but did not implicate) the Biden family, further defined the Delaware Way as “a form of soft corruption, intersecting business and political interests, which has existed in this State for years.”

At the time, Schreckinger’s article caused a ripple, but only a ripple; as we know, the Main Stream Media’s big push last year was getting rid of Trump.

Yet just last month, Schreckinger published a not-so-flattering book, The Bidens: Inside the First Family’s Fifty-Year Rise to Power. Among the book’s assertions was that the Hunter Biden laptop is for real, and that at least some of the contents of that machine are substantially what the New York Post reported them to be last year.

One reporter’s confirmation of an earlier report might not seem to be that big a deal, and yet unlike the New York Post, Politico is a member in good standing of the MSM club—and so MSM types couldn’t ignore Schreckinger’s work. And we should add that Schreckinger has done a great deal of digging into the Delaware Way, such that the whole Biden family—which has done well for themselves thanks to Joe—now perhaps has reason to be concerned.

So now, who knows where the Hunter trail could lead. And yet some twists are already evident. For instance, on October 8, the Biden White House rejected Trump’s claims of executive privilege in regard to his attempt to shield former aides from subpoenas concerning the January 6 investigation.

Okay, so it wasn’t too surprising that the Biden White House would do that, and yet as Trump himself pointed out, a rejection of the 45th president’s claim of executive privilege could lead to the future rejection of the 46th president’s claim of privilege in re: Hunter. As they say, what’s sauce for the goose is sauce for the gander. And Hunter and his enablers could yet be in the soup.

And just on October 12, Schreckinger published a piece in Politico in which he reported that “Hunter Biden had in fact received an email containing the ’10 held by H for the big guy?’ language.”

As they say about explosive news stories, ka-boom. That “10 being held by H” language appears to be a reference to 10 percent of the equity in a Chinese company, and “H” of course, is Hunter, and the “big guy” is thought to be . . . Joe Biden.

It should be noted that the New York Post reported on this exact same email on October 15, 2020. But now that Politico is reporting it, the rest of the MSM must pay heed. In fact, Schreckinger’s story was retweeted by a New York Times reporter—and that’s MSM royalty.

1634441762163.png

Hmm. Ten percent for the big guy. Let that rattle around for a while.
So now our thoughts must turn darker: What if the real story isn’t Hunter, but Joe?

If so, then our thoughts on the 47th vice president, Joe Biden, might beg comparison to the 39th vice president. That would be Spiro Agnew, the onetime governor of Maryland who became Richard Nixon’s vice president in 1969. Four years later, he was implicated in a home-state corruption investigation and forced to resign.

We’ve already learned about the “Delaware Way,” defined by a prosecutor as “a form of soft corruption.” Well, any resident of Maryland, which adjoins Delaware, knows that there’s also a Maryland Way. Indeed, surveying the long history of crookedness in the state’s politics—including Agnew, another recent governor, and two mayors of Baltimore—one political analyst said in 2019, “It’s almost like corruption is part of American political DNA in the state of Maryland.”

Of course, we shouldn’t pick on either Maryland or Delaware, because as we know, corruption is a blight on every region of the country. Still, corruption does seem to be worse in big cities. And so just as Maryland has Baltimore, so Delaware has Wilmington—which is, of course, a part of greater Philadelphia.
And so if someone—a whole family, in fact—has flourished in that sort of grey-zone for decades, well, it’s reasonable to ask: What could be discovered about such a family if reporters and other investigators go digging?

Could Joe Biden really be another Spiro Agnew? As of now, there’s no way to know. However, one thing we do know: Spiro Agnew never had a son like Hunter Biden.

Will Joe Be Included In The Hunter IRA Money Laundering Investigation?

Posted on October 16, 2021 by TMH
By: Denise Simon | Founders Code

Another IRS – White House collusion story in the making?

EXCLUSIVE: Joe Biden could become embroiled in the FBI’s probe into Hunter’s finances, experts say: Emails reveal they SHARED bank accounts, paid each other’s bills and the president may have even have funded his son’s 2018 drug and prostitution binge
  • Emails from Hunter Biden’s abandoned laptop, obtained by DailyMail.com, reveal Joe and Hunter shared bank accounts and paid each other’s bills
  • The president have may have inadvertently funded his son’s 2018 drug and prostitution binge
  • Emails between Hunter and Eric Schwerin, his business partner at consultancy Rosemont Seneca, show Schwerin was working on Joe’s taxes
  • The claim raises serious questions about whether funds from the joint accounts were used for Hunter’s May 2018 week-long bender with a prostitute
  • Last December, Hunter admitted in a public statement that he was under federal investigation over his tax affairs
  • A former federal prosecutor tells DailyMail.com that if money was flowing between Hunter and his father, that could make Joe a target of the probe
  • The FBI and IRS probe is reportedly also looking into Hunter’s foreign business relationships and the potential for money laundering charges
Hunter’s claim that he and his father shared a bank account also raises serious questions whether funds from the alleged joint account were used for Hunter’s May 2018 week-long bender with a prostitute in a Hollywood hotel.

Emails between Hunter and Eric Schwerin, his business partner at consultancy Rosemont Seneca, show Schwerin was working on Joe's taxes


The FBI and IRS probe is reportedly also looking into his foreign business relationships and the potential for money laundering charges.

The Senate security committee issued a report last year raising fears that the Chinese government was attempting to influence the White House through a billion-dollar business deal between Hunter’s company he co-founded with Schwerin, Rosemont Seneca, and Chinese oil giant CEFC.

John Cassara, a former U.S. Intelligence Officer and Treasury Special Agent who is an expert in money laundering investigations, said that were Joe not president, he would probably be in prosecutors’ crosshairs by now along with his son.

‘The information available publicly is very worrisome, particularly in the areas of corruption,’ Cassara told DailyMail.com.

‘They could go at this from all different avenues. Follow the corruption trail and then charge money laundering.

‘Corruption is a predicate offense for money laundering. And besides corruption, it’s the perception of corruption. This kind of thing should not be happening. It undermines full faith in the US government. It undermines trust and our international reputation. It’s an embarrassment.’

In yet more evidence of the deep commercial relationship between Hunter’s firm and the VP’s office during Joe’s tenure, Rosemont Seneca received special favors from the White House while Joe was in office, including dozens of tickets to exclusive 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue events and private tours for Rosemont Seneca clients or associates.

And when an aide to Senator Robert Menendez requested VP Biden host the U.S.-Spain Council’s 2010 annual meeting at his official Naval Observatory residence in Washington DC, they contacted Schwerin rather than Joe’s White House office.

Hunter and Schwerin then privately discussed the potential to ingratiate themselves with ‘CEOs of the major banks’ if they helped arrange the request.

In 2010, Danny O'Brien, then chief of staff to U.S.-Spain Council chair Senator Menendez, contacted Schwerin asking if VP Biden could host the group's annual meeting at his naval observatory official residence

Schwerin was also involved in the process of gifting Joe's senate papers to the University of Delaware. A member of the VP's office, Katherina Oyama, wrote to Schwerin in March 2010 detailing the restrictions Joe's White House attorney was recommending over the public release of the papers

Hunter complained that ‘half’ of his salary went to paying his father’s bills while he was VP, casting doubt on Joe’s previous claims that he’s never benefited from his son’s business dealings.

In a 2019 text to his daughter Naomi, he wrote: ‘I hope you all can do what I did and pay for everything for this entire family for 30 years.

‘It’s really hard. But don’t worry, unlike Pop [Joe], I won’t make you give me half your salary.’

Bills Hunter paid for Joe included a $190-a-month AT&T phone bill and thousands in repairs on the president’s lakeside home in Wilmington.

In a 2018 email to one of his own assistants, Hunter complained that he had been shut out of his own bank account and that his father had been using it.

‘Too many cooks in the kitchen. Too many profile changes and such. Happened 10 days ago too…

‘My dad has been using most lines on this account which I’ve through the gracious offerings of Eric have paid for past 11 years,’ he said.

Schwerin made repeated references to Joe and Hunter paying each other’s bills, in emails on Hunter’s laptop.

Hunter Biden blew tens of thousands on prostitutes, drugs ...

Joe is proud of his son…

Then there is the China Connection….AGAIN

Source: Hunter Biden said his business relationship with a mysterious Chinese tycoon later arrested on money laundering charges had “everything to do with my last name,” previously unreported emails show.

Biden and his associates met in April 2010 with businessman Che Fung to lay the groundwork for a partnership to invest in companies in China and the United States, according to emails from Biden’s abandoned laptop. Other emails show the Biden consortium discussing a deal with Che’s company, Ever Union Capital, to invest up to $150 million in partnership with China’s sovereign wealth fund. In a Sept. 23, 2011, email to his partner Devon Archer, Biden admitted Che wanted to work with him because of his father, then-vice president Joe Biden.

The emails provide another example of the younger Biden using his family name to further his foreign business interests, undercutting Joe Biden’s claims to the contrary. Hunter Biden landed a high-paying position on the board of Ukrainian energy company Burisma Holdings in 2014, just as his father was taking over the Obama administration’s Ukraine portfolio. Some of Biden’s associates recognized the importance of his family ties to their business deals. One Biden partner touted the “political and strategic value of the Biden family” during 2017 negotiations with a Chinese energy conglomerate.

Che’s fate raises the likelihood that Chinese authorities knew of Biden’s business dealings. Che, who is reported to be the son-in-law of a former chief of China’s central bank, was arrested on Feb. 2, 2015, on charges that he laundered $15 billion. According to one report, Che provided investigators with details of his business activity. It is unclear if he discussed his links to Biden, though the Chinese government would likely have been interested in details of his interactions with the son of an American vice president.

Republicans have asserted that Biden’s foreign business dealings created blackmail opportunities against the Biden family. Sen. Chuck Grassley (R., Iowa) and Sen. Ron Johnson (R., Wis.) said in a report last year that Biden’s partnerships presented “serious counterintelligence and extortion concerns.”

The Biden emails portray an air of mystery surrounding Che, who has been described in press reports as “shadowy and discreet.” Biden and his business partners referred to Che cryptically as “Super Chairman” and “Mr. Che.” His full name is mentioned in just one email from April 2010 that sets up an introductory lunch meeting in Washington, D.C., between the mogul and the Biden consortium.
