Hunter Biden pursued lucrative deals involving China’s largest private energy company — including one that he said would be “interesting on behalf of me and my family,” emails obtained by The Post show.
One email sent to Biden on May 13, 2017, with the topic line “Expectations,” included details of “remuneration packages” for 6 people involved in an unspecified business venture.
Hunter Biden was identified as “Chair / Vice Chair depending on agreement with CEFC,” a clear regard to the previous Shanghai-based conglomerate CEFC China Energy Co.
His pay was pegged at “850” and therefore the email also noted that “Hunter has some office expectations he will elaborate.”
In addition, the e-mail outlined a “provisional agreement” under which 80 percent of the “equity,” or shares within the new company, would be split equally among four people whose initials correspond to the sender and three recipients, with “H” apparently pertaining to Biden.
The deal also listed “10 Jim” and “10 held by H for the large guy?”
Neither Jim nor the “big guy” was identified further.
The email’s author, James Gilliar of the international consulting company J2cR, also noted, “I am happy to raise any detail with Zang if there’s [sic] shortfalls ?”
“Zang” is a clear regard to Zang Jian Jun, the previous executive of CEFC China.
The email is contained during a trove of knowledge that the owner of a computer fix-it shop in Delaware said was recovered from a MacBook Pro laptop that was dropped off in April 2019 and never retrieved.
The computer was seized by the FBI, and a replica of its contents made by the shop owner shared with The Post in the week by former Mayor Rudy Giuliani.
Another email — sent by Biden as a part of an Aug. 2, 2017, chain — involved a deal he struck with the since-vanished chairman of CEFC, Ye Jianming, for half-ownership of a company that was expected to supply Biden with quite $10 million a year.
Ye, who had ties to the Chinese military and intelligence , hasn’t been seen since being taken into custody by Chinese authorities in early 2018, and CEFC went bankrupt earlier this year, consistent with reports.
Hunter Biden wrote that Ye had sweetened the terms of an earlier, three-year consulting contract with CEFC that was to pay him $10 million annually “for introductions alone.”
“The chairman changed that deal after we me[t] in MIAMI TO a way 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 Aug. 1, 2017, shows a handwritten flowchart of the ownership of “Hudson West” split 50/50 between two entities ultimately controlled by Hunter Biden and someone identified as “Chairman.”
According to a report on Hunter Biden’s overseas business dealings released last month by Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wis., and Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, a corporation called Hudson West III opened a line of credit in September 2017.
Credit cards issued against the account were employed by Hunter, his uncle James Biden and James’ wife, Sara Biden, to get quite $100,000 “worth of extravagant items, including airline tickets and multiple items at Apple Inc. stores, pharmacies, hotels and restaurants,” the report said.
The company has since been dissolved, and Hunter Biden’s firm , Owasco PC, was one among two owners, consistent with the report.
Hunter Biden’s email was sent to Gongwen Dong, whom The Wall Street Journal in October 2018 tied to the acquisition by Ye-linked companies of two luxury Manhattan apartments that cost a complete on $83 million.
Dong, who owns a sprawling mansion in Great Neck, LI, has been identified in reports as CFO of the Kam Fei Group, an investment company based in Hong Kong .
The documents obtained by The Post also include an “Attorney Engagement Letter” executed in September 2017 during which one among Ye’s top lieutenants, former Hong Kong government official Chi Ping Patrick Ho, agreed to pay Biden a $1 million retainer for “Counsel to matters associated with US law and advice concerning the hiring and legal analysis of any US firm or Lawyer.”
In December 2018, a Manhattan federal jury convicted Ho in two schemes to pay $3 million in bribes to high-ranking officialdom in Africa for oil rights in Chad and lucrative business deals in Uganda.
Ho served a three-year prison sentence and was deported to Hong Kong in June.
Neither Hunter Biden’s lawyer, the Joe Biden campaign, Gilliar, Dong nor Ho’s lawyers returned requests for comment, but Biden’s lawyer has previously said, there is not any need for discuss 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,” lawyer George Mesires added.
Hunter Biden Strives for ‘Lasting and Lucrative Arrangement’ with Chinese Nationals
Hunter Biden canvassed possible business involvement with a major Chinese firm as he sought deals that would be “interesting for me and my family,” according to a new batch of emails released by the New York Post on Thursday.
The son of the Democratic presidential nominee corresponded with China’s largest private energy provider, CEFC, messages unearthed by the Post from what is alleged to be Hunter’s personal laptop show.
In one missive sent to Hunter in May 2017 titled “Expectations,” details of “remuneration packages” for six people in a business venture were discussed.
He was identified as the “chair/vice chair depending on agreement with CEFC,” an apparent reference to the now bankrupt Shanghai conglomerate China Energy Co.
Hunter’s pay was “850” and the correspondence also outlined he “has some office expectations he will elaborate.”
The email revelations come barely 24-hours after the Post published other emails that showed Joe Biden lied when he said he’s “never spoken to my son about his overseas business dealings,” as Breitbart News reported.
Gas company Burisma’ adviser Vadym Pozharskyi thanked Hunter for “an opportunity to meet your father” in an email sent in 2015, according to the trove of data given to the Post by Rudy Giuliani.
