Hunter Biden ‘tried to cash in for family with Chinese firm’ as ‘$1B payday after visit with dad revealed’

HUNTER Biden allegedly tried to cash in for his family with a Chinese firm as a $1billion payday after a visit with his dad was revealed.

New bombshell emails, unveiled by the New York Post on Thursday, show that Hunter was apparently in talks with Shanghai-based conglomerate CEFC China Energy Co.

One email sent to Biden on May 13 2017 had the subject line of "expectations," and identified Hunter as "Chair / Vice Chair depending on agreement with CEFC."

Biden's pay was detailed as "850" and the email included a "provisional agreement" nothing that 80 percent of the "equity" would be split equally among four people, one of which being "H."

It further listed "10 Jim" and "10 held by H for the big guy?" but did not identify either entity further.

The sender of the email, James Gilliar of the international consulting firm J2cR, wrote "I am happy to raise any detail with Zang if there is [sic] shortfalls ?"

The Post reported that "Zang" is an apparent reference to Zang Jian Jun who is the former executive director of CEFC China.

In an email from August 2 2017, Biden mentioned a deal he struck with former CEFC chairman Ye Jianming, for half-ownership of a holding company that was expected to provide Hunter with more than $10million a year.

Ye was taken into custody by Chinese authorities in 2018 and has not been seen since. CEFC also went bankrupt earlier this year, the Post reports.

Biden went on to say that a former three-year consulting deal that was set to pay him "for introductions alone" had since been changed.

"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.

"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 inn [sic] the equity and profits of the JV’s [joint venture’s] investments."

A photo, dated August 1 2017, of a handwritten flowchart of the ownership of "Hudson West" shows an equal split between Biden and someone identified as "Chairman."

A report of Biden's overseas business dealings showed that a company called Hudson West III reportedly opened a line of credit in September 2017, Senators Ron Johnson and Chuck Grassley revealed last month.

The credit cards tied to the account were used by Hunter, his uncle James Biden and James' wife, Sara Biden, to purchase more than $100,000 "worth of extravagant items, including airline tickets and multiple items at Apple Inc. stores, pharmacies, hotels and restaurants," according to the report.

Hudson West III has since been dissolved. One of two owners was reportedly Hunter Biden's law firm, Owasco PC.

Biden's August email was sent to Gongwen Dong who has been identified as CFO of the Kam Fei Group, which is an investment firm based in Hong Kong.

Alongside the emails, documents obtained by the Post included an "Attorney Engagement Letter" executed in September 2017 in which one of Ye's top lieutenants, former Hong Kong government official Chi Ping Patrick Ho, agreed to pay Biden a $1million retainer for "Counsel to matters related to US law and advice pertaining to the hiring and legal analysis of any US Law Firm or Lawyer."

Ho was convicted in December 2018 in two schemes to pay $3million in bribes to high-ranking government officials in Africa for oil rights in Chad and lucrative business deals in Uganda. He served a three-year jail sentence and was deported to Hong Kong in June.

Biden's lawyer, George Mesires, previously told the Post: "There is no need for comment on any so-called information provided by Rudy Giuliani.

"He has been pushing widely discredited conspiracy theories about the Biden family, openly relying on actors tied to Russian intelligence. His record of dishonesty in these matters speaks for itself."

Giuliani was the source that shared a copy of the laptop's contents with the Post, it was reported.

The former New York Mayor claimed on Wednesday that the Chinese government has obtained non-public emails from Biden's laptop.

Giuliani told former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon on his War Room Pandemic podcast: "I have to tell you – and this is very sensitive. The stuff that we're in possession of contains 1,000 maybe more photographs that are highly, highly anywhere from inappropriate to illegal and have to be possessed by the Chinese government.

"If the Chinese government doesn't have these photographs, they're not really a rival," Giuliani continued. "Everything the American people are going to look at in the next five days, China's been looking at for a long time."

However, the attorney did not provide any evidence that the Chinese government obtains this information.

The updates came after the New York Post uncovered several emails and a "smoking crack during a sex act" video, amid scrutiny over Hunter's job at oil and gas giant Burisma.

Explosive emails appear to show that VP Biden met with Burisma exec Vadym Pozharskyi while the Ukrainian was in the US, reports the Post.

A spokesperson for Joe Biden denied any such meeting in a statement on Wednesday.

The emails come from a trove of files found on a damaged MacBook Pro, which was dropped off at a repair shop in Biden's home state of Delaware.

Among the files is reportedly a 12-minute video of Hunter engaging in a sex act with an unidentified woman, according to The Post.

He is apparently seen smoking crack in the video.

The 50-year-old has been open about his struggles with addiction.

The laptop was also said to have other files, including sexually explicit pictures.

The Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee is now investigating the trove of documents, The Post reported.

According to the outlet, the senate is working with the repairman to verify the documents.

Hunter joined the Burisma board in 2014 on a salary reportedly up to $50,000-a-month, despite having no prior experience.

Emails published The Post reveal Pozharskyi thanked Hunter for introducing him to his dad in a message sent on April 17, 2015.

It reads: "Dear Hunter, thank you for inviting me to DC and giving an opportunity to meet your father and spent [sic] some time together.

"It’s realty [sic] an honor and pleasure."

And in another email from May 2014, Pozharskyi asks Hunter for "advice on how you could use your influence" on behalf of Burisma.

Biden had claimed he had "never spoken" to Hunter about his overseas business dealings – something which the emails appear to refute.

FBI agents seized the computer and hard drive last December after the shop owner alerted the feds – and he also gave a copy of the files to former Mayor Rudy Giuliani’s lawyer, Robert Costello.

The New York Post reports ex-Trump advisor Steve Bannon alerted the newspaper of the existence of the hard drive, and Trump ally Giuliani provided a copy of the files on Sunday.

Trump claims Hunter's job was instrumental in Biden pressuring the Ukrainian government into firing prosecutors Viktor Shokin who he claims was investigating Burisma.

The allegations are disputed – with officials claiming Shokin was actually fired for failing to investigate corruption.

Ukrainian prosecutors also said earlier this year there was no evidence of wrongdoing on the part of Hunter Biden.

In a statement on Wednesday, Biden spokesperson Andrew Bates hit back at allegations detailed in The Post.

"Investigations by the press, during impeachment, and even by two Republican-led Senate committees whose work was decried as 'not legitimate' and political by a GOP colleague have all reached the same conclusion: that Joe Biden carried out official U.S. policy toward Ukraine and engaged in no wrongdoing," Bates said.

"Trump administration officials have attested to these facts under oath."

Bates added: "Moreover, we have reviewed Joe Biden's official schedules from the time and no meeting, as alleged by the New York Post, ever took place.
