Emails obtained from a laptop computer allegedly belonging to Hunter Biden reveal Biden was working on several deals with Chinese firms worth tens of millions of dollars.
One such deal would have seen Biden paid $10 million “for introductions alone.” To whom those introductions were expected to be to is not elaborated on in the emails.
Hunter Biden is the son of former VP and current Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden.
“The chairman changed that deal after we me[t] in MIAMI TO A MUCH MORE LASTING AND LUCRATIVE ARRANGEMENT to create a holding company 50% percent [sic] owned by ME and 50% owned by him,” Biden wrote in one email.
“Chairman” refers to Ye Juanming, chairman at the time of CEFC China Energy Co. Ye who has ties to the Chinese military and intelligence service, hasn’t been seen since being taken into custody by Chinese authorities in early 2018 and CEFC went bankrupt earlier this year.
The Biden campaign has so far not denied the authenticity of the emails, which were reported first by The New York Post.
