Once again, the Hunter Biden ordeal has taken center-stage in Washington. And this time, it appears more evidence is coming to light due to the now-infamous Hunter laptop that made waves last year.
For some time now, Republican leaders have questioned the Biden family and their overseas dealings, specifically in regards to their communications with foreign powers China and Ukraine.
Throughout the fiasco, President Joe Biden has staunchly defended his son, and claimed he never had any involvement with Hunter’s business activities.
However, more evidence may prove that these claims aren’t 100 percent accurate.
One of the first accusations to come down centered on political favoritism and influence: right-wing leaders said then-Vice President Joe Biden used his power to secure Hunter a high-paying position overseas.
Then came allegations of connections to Chinese executives, and plenty of money changing hands.
Again, though, Joe Biden insisted he was not involved – or even had any knowledge of – Hunter’s specific business dealings overseas, which is why any evidence to the contrary is starting to make headlines.
For example, an email found on Hunter’s laptop — as revealed by Fox News:
President Biden, in 2017, wrote a college recommendation letter for the son of a Chinese executive who did business with Hunter Biden, according to emails reviewed by Fox News Digital.
The president has repeatedly denied discussing Hunter’s business ventures with his son.
Fox News Digital obtained emails between Hunter Biden and his business associates involved in his firm Rosemont Seneca’s joint venture with Chinese investment firms Bohai Capital and BHR.
As of last year, Hunter held a 10 percent stake in BHR, which the White House has admitted to. Since then, Hunter’s attorney told the New York Times that he had “divested.”
But the focus here is on the email in question, which is dated January 3, 2017 and was sent to Hunter Biden and his business associates.
At that time, CEO of BHR Jonathan Li said his son, Chris, was applying to American schools Brown, Cornell, and New York University. Then, Jim Bulger – one of Hunter’s colleagues – responded by saying, “Let’s see how we can be helpful to Chris.”
A few weeks later, Rosemont Seneca president Eric Schwerin wrote back:
Jonathan, Hunter asked me to send you a copy of the recommendation letter that he asked his father to write on behalf of Christopher for Brown University.
Of course, he’s referring to Hunter’s father, Joe. He says Hunter asked for a recommendation letter on behalf of Chris Li, and wanted it to be sent to Brown University.
The follow-up said the letter was in fact sent to Brown, and Li replied that he’d seen the email, and thanked Hunter for taking that step.
Unfortunately, Fox wasn’t able to acquire the letter Joe allegedly wrote to help Li, and we’re not certain if Li ended up going to Brown. But the sources are saying these emails originated on Hunter’s laptop.
Brown University didn’t comment due to privacy reasons, and the White House is sticking to its “we don’t comment on the laptop” stance.
However, none of that is stopping the speculation and controversy from mounting, because it’s becoming clearer that Joe Biden had at least some involvement in his son’s affairs.
The big questions now are: how much did Joe really know, and how often did he lend a helping hand to Hunter and his friends?
- Emails obtained from Hunter Biden’s laptop allegedly show Joe helping one of Hunter’s business associates.
- It seems Joe Biden wrote a recommendation letter for a Chinese executive’s son, to help him get into Brown University.
- If true, this contradicts Biden’s claims that he never had any involvement or knowledge of his son’s overseas activities.
