New evidence was released on Wednesday by two Republican-run Senate committees that show Hunter Biden, together with his business partners, have been involved in business dealings connected with China and Russia even as recent as 2017.
The senators argue it has repercussions for his father, Joe Biden, as he is in the race to become the next president, creating potential counterintelligence concerns.
Senate Finance Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) and Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee Chairman Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) is conducting an ongoing investigation into Hunter’s business dealings. They have released documents that form part of their report.
Included are emails, texts, and memos that have been provided by previous business associate Tony Bobulinski, who is cooperating with the FBI and the Senate during the investigation.
“These new records confirm the connections between the Biden family and the communist Chinese government, (Chinese Communist Party) as well as the links between Hunter Biden’s business associates and the Russian government, and further support the Committees’ Sept. 23, 2020 report’s finding that such relationships created counterintelligence and extortion concerns,” the senators wrote in their new report.
Evidence from the committee highlights business deals between Hunter Biden, Bobulinskis, and American businessman Rob Walker, who has close ties with the Bidens, reports Just The News.
Walker described himself in an email as “being a surrogate for H or Jim when gauging opportunities.” The committee said that in the email, “H appears to refer to Hunter Biden, and Jim appears to refer to Joe Biden’s brother, James Biden.”
A business venture with CEFC China Energy was at the center of many discussions, as revealed in the new evidence. Ye Jianming heads the CEFC, and it was revealed he has CCP and Chinese military [Peoples Liberation Army] connections. He is known to work with Hunter Biden and his business associates to secure energy deals worldwide, including Russia, France, and Oman.
According to documents obtained by the committee, in 2017, a company connected with Ye deposited money into accounts linked to Biden’s associates.
“In 2017, during the time that Ye’s companies were sending millions of dollars to Hunter Biden associated companies, Ye had business dealings with Kremlin-controlled companies and Kremlin-aligned businessmen,” the report said.
“In effect, Ye appears to have been China’s unofficial bridge to Russia on energy.
As noted in the Committees’ September 23, 2020 report, in Sept. 2017, CEFC announced its intention to purchase a 14.2 percent stake in the Russian state-owned energy company, Rosneft, for approximately $9 billion.”
The report outlines evidence that Hunter Biden “was in close contact with Ye in 2017, and was aware of these developments.”
“In an October 2017 message exchange produced to the Committees by Bobulinski, Hunter Biden told Bobulinski that although he ‘stayed out of that Russian mess,’ he ‘discussed the Roseneft [sic] deal’ with Ye personally and was familiar with the deal, including the fact that Ye was ‘pissed off…by the execution,’” the report said.
“In the same exchange, Biden explained that he spoke to Ye on a ‘regular basis,’ they have a ‘standing once a week call,’ was the ‘first guest in his new apartment … he cooked me lunch himself, and we ate in the kitchen together,’ and was helping Ye ‘on a number of his personal issues (staff visas and some more sensitive things).’”
According to Just The News, Sen. Johnson disclosed in an interview on Wednesday, Nov. 18, evidence from new witnesses had surfaced after the September report on the Biden’s foreign business investments had been revealed.
“Our report obviously raised serious questions and broke a logjam of information, and now we have whistleblowers coming forward with new information showing even more troubling ties back to the Chinese government [CCP], Russia’s Rosneft, and possibly the People’s Liberation Army,” the senator said.
He added, “These are the people that Hunter Biden associated with, and Joe Biden knew full well his family was engaged with.”
