Vice President Joe Biden was the one and “only asset” of the Biden family “brand” Hunter Biden sold to foreign businessmen in exchange for upwards of $20 million dollars, new texts released by the House Ways and Means Committee indicate.
Hunter, under the pseudonym Sportsman, wrote in a June 6, 2017 WhatsApp message to his uncle James “Jim” Biden and Biden family associates James Gilliar and Rob Walker that he was hesitant to sacrifice the Biden family brand because of how lucrative it had become.
“Bullsh-t James – all around bullsh-t. Explain to me one thing Tony brings to MY table that I so desperately need that I’m willing to sign over my family’s brand and pretty much the rest of my business life? Read the f-cking documents people It’s plane f-cking English. Why in gods name would I give this marginal bully the keys my family’s only asset? Why?” Hunter ranted.
House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Jason Smith said during a Wednesday press conference, “That asset could only be one person: Joe Biden.”
Later in the same text thread, Hunter offered to host “a conference call with my guy and his intel.”
President Joe Biden repeatedly insists that “my son has not made money on China,” despite oodles of evidence suggesting otherwise. Not only do the newly released texts confirm Joe’s involvement in a deal with CCP-adjacent businessmen, but they name him as a key component of the Biden family’s global shakedown operation.
“Vice President Joe Biden’s political power and influence was the ‘brand’ that Hunter Biden was selling all over the world,” Smith continued. “Even more alarming, the Biden family foreign influence peddling operation suggests an effort to sway U.S. policy decisions.”
The “Tony” Hunter refers to in the texts is Tony Bobulinski, a former Biden business associate who partnered with the family to secure a deal with the communist-linked Chinese energy company CEFC. Mere weeks before the 2020 election, Boblinski confirmed that Joe, Hunter, and the rest of the Biden family stood to profit from the influence peddling.
“So I think Joe Biden and the Biden family is compromised,” Bobulinski said in an October 2020 sitdown with Tucker Carlson. “I just don’t see, given the history here and the facts, how Joe can’t be influenced in some manner based on the history that they have here with CEFC.”
Tony was one of the six people mentioned in a May 13, 2017 email to Hunter promising “remuneration packages” to the Biden business associates and the unnamed “big guy.” Hunter confirmed in an August 2, 2017 email thread reply that he was going to be paid $10 million a year “for introductions alone.”
Another round of texts between Jim and Hunter in March 2018 indicates that the younger Biden once again understood his father’s pivotal role in the family’s moneymaking scheme.
“Anyway, we can talk later but you’ve been drawn into something purely for the purpose of
protecting Dad,” Hunter wrote. Later in the text, he indicated that Joe and Jim “both ha[v]e said it’s bigger than me a family.”
“I am no dupe for anyone. If you see me as an agent for my brother, there is something seriously wrong,” Jim replied.
Joe wasn’t just a distant participant in this CEFC deal. More texts from Hunter indicate that, despite denying and then flip-flopping on whether he was ever in business with his youngest son, Joe planned to brush elbows with Hunter’s foreign business partners.
Less than one month after he bragged about selling his father’s influence, Hunter sent an August 27, 2017, WhatsApp message to CEFC associate Gongwen “Kevin” Dong, confirming that Joe would swing by to meet CEFC executives.
“I will pick up you at 12pm at the lobby of your hotel. The luncheon will start at 12:30pm,” Dong wrote.
“Where is luncheon Kevin? My uncle will be here with his BROTHER who would like to say hello to the Chairman. He is here to visit my daughter,” Hunter replied.
Dong then extends an invitation from the CEFC chairman for Hunter to visit “his new home in NYC.”
“So please give me location and time. Jim’s BROTHER if he is coming just wants to say hello he will not be stopping for lunch,” Hunter repeated.
Before that, in 2014, documents suggest Joe hosted Hunter, billionaire Miguel Aleman, and Aleman’s father at the White House in February 2014. Three months later, Hunter urged his business associate Devon Archer to go to Mexico City and “cement deal w/ Miguel.” Writing to Archer, Hunter said, “To that end you need to reach out to him and get him an ongoing report on RR investment.” One year after Joe hosted the Alemans and Mexican billionaire Carlos Slim in November 2015, he gave Hunter and Archer a ride on Air Force 2 to Mexico City.
