The second batch of emails found from Hunter Biden’s email cache revealed how the Democrat’s son was involved with China’s largest private energy company.

In the past few days, the emails that were retrieved from Hunter Biden’s laptop sent a series of political shockwaves all over America as it revealed how Joe Biden allegedly met Hunter Biden’s Ukrainian adviser, Vadym Pozharskyi; a revelation that is contrary to Joe Biden’s denial of not talking to his son about his business dealings.

 

The second batch of emails reveals Hunter Biden’s involvement with CEFC, China’s largest private energy company, and how he was given equity ownership and hefty consulting fees.

In one email, it can also be seen how Hunter said that the lucrative deal with this Chinese company would be “interesting for my family”.

Second Batch of Controversial Emails

The latest batch that was published again focused on Hunter Biden’s dealings with the former chairman of CEFC in 2017, Ye Jianming. This exchange of communication happened after Joe Biden had left office as a Vice President, and when it was thought that he would not run again in 2020.

However, Ye has not been seen since, and in 2018, he was taken into custody by the Chinese authorities due to the rumors that are linked to the Chinese military and intelligence services. 

Earlier this year, CEFC went bankrupt after it was unable to pay its huge debts and after it was warned over its dealings with sanctioned Russian firms and its lack of transparency.

Hunter Biden’s “Remuneration Packages” 

One email titled ‘Expectations’, which was to Hunter Biden in May 2017, discussed the “remuneration packages” for six people in a business venture. In this email, Hunter Biden was identified as “Chair/Vice Chair depending on agreement with CEFC.” The communication also noted how Hunter “has some office expectations he will elaborate.”

Hunter also wrote in one email that the deal would be “interesting for my family.”

To quote, Hunter Biden wrote, “Consulting fees is one piece of our income stream but the reason this proposal by the chairman was so much more interesting to me and my family is that we would also be partners in the equity and profits of of JV’s [joint venture’s] investments”

This email by Hunter Biden was sent to Gongwen Don who is linked to the purchase of two luxury apartments in Manhattan with a whopping price of $83 Million. This was then bought by companies that are linked to Ye Jianming.

“Provisional Agreements”

Another email also outlined a “Provisional Agreement,” wherein it says 80% of the equity would be shared evenly among four people. One appears to relate to Hunter Biden and three others. 

Hunter Biden also reportedly discussed a deal with Ye in another email in 2017. Hunter Biden wrote that Ye had been influential in developing a three-year consulting contract with CEFC that would pay him $10 Million every year just for introductions alone.

In August 2017, CEFC wired to the bank account of Hudson West III. This bank then sent frequent payments to Hunter Biden’s law firm, Owasco. These payments were described as “consulting fees” which reached over $4 Million in just a over a year.

In relation to this Hunter Biden’s business dealings reflected that in September 2017, Hudson West III opened a line of credit. The credit cards that were released were used by Hunter, his uncle James and Sara, Jame’s wife. 

Hudson West was then dissolved and was then later discovered as a shell company. A report also revealed that Hunter’s law firm, Owasco, was one of Hudson West owners. 

Retainer of $1 Million From Hong Kong Government Official

An email was also found reflecting an agreement to pay Hunter Biden a retainer worth $1 Million for acting as a counsel on US law. 

The offer was made by Chi Ping Patrick Ho, a former Hong Kong government official who was convicted in Manhattan for administering two schemes to pay $3 Million bribes to African government for oil rights. Said government official had served a prison sentence for three years and was deported to Hong Kong in June. 

These emails are among the trove of files referenced by Attorney Giuliani and his team. This was released after the computer repair shop owner recovered the data from a MacBoook pro laptop that was dropped off to his shop but was never retrieved.
