Republican Senators Chuck Grassley and Ron Johnson are demanding that the Biden administration turn over intelligence records detailing shady multi-million dollar deals made between Hunter Biden and a Chinese energy company linked to the Chinese Communist Party (CCP).
On Wednesday, Senators Grassley and Johnson sent a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland and Avril Haines, director of national intelligence, warning that it is “imperative” that Congress understand the relationship between the Biden family and CEFC China Energy, the now-defunct energy conglomerate associated with the CCP.
Between August 2017 and September 2018, CEFC China Energy paid Hunter Biden approximately $6 million for “legal and consulting services,” according to a report Grassley and Johnson released last year, the Daily Caller reported.
The senators’ investigative report on the Biden family’s foreign business dealings detailed complex financial transactions and connections between Biden family members and foreign nationals linked to the CCP, including its military and intelligence services.
The senators released a supplement to their report detailing even more troubling financial connections involving the Biden family, their business associates, the CCP, and Russia.
Grassley and Johnson also allege that CEFC’s founder, Ye Jianming, for several years was a CCP official who served as a member of a secret Party intelligence group. Biden met several times with Jianming, including at Jianming’s home in New York.
CEFC also paid $1 million to Biden to represent Patrick Ho, a former Hong Kong official, also linked to the CCP, who operated within a think tank funded by the Chinese energy company.
Ho was formally indicted in November 2017 and later convicted on charges of attempted bribery in 2014 of two African country leaders for oil drilling contracts under CEFC China Energy.
In 2017, Hunter Biden and a group of partners formed a consulting firm that planned to explore investment projects for CEFC China Energy in the U.S., South America, and Europe. Tony Bobulinski, one of the original partners, later alleged that Biden cut him out of the deal and subsequently formed a parallel partnership with CEFC in August 2017.
Grassley and Johnson asked authorities in their letter to release “all intelligence records,” including information derived from FISAs against Ho, by April 14.
“The sharing of office space with Chinese nationals and entities linked to the communist regime and its military demands additional explanation,” Grassley and Johnson wrote.
Hunter Biden’s controversial business dealings came to light weeks before the presidential election that saw his father, Joe Biden, emerge as the winner. Democratic politicians and the hegemonic media and Big Tech were all sympathetic to the corruption of the Biden family, hiding and censoring all information about it, seeking that such an outrage to business ethics does not affect the image of the Democratic candidate.
