Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) has thus far remained silent on and separate from the scandal involving Democrat nominee Joe Biden in his son’s questionable business dealings with Ukraine and China.
However, Fox News just obtained an email implicating Harris in a Biden family’s scheme to launch a joint venture between Jim and Hunter Biden and CEFC China Energy Co., a now-bankrupt Chinese energy company.
“Key domestic contact”
James Biden, brother of Joe Biden, and Hunter Biden, son of Joe Biden, both sought to strike a profitable deal with CEFC China Energy while Joe Biden was still vice president of the United States.
Emails recently released by the New York Post showed that the younger Biden pursued deals with China’s largest energy company that would be “interesting for me and my family,” and contained illusions to shares in the new company being “held by H for the big guy?”
“H” appears to refer to Hunter, and “the big guy” is thought to refer to Joe Biden. That email also includes Jim Biden as a recipient of equity in the new company as well.
Now, another email obtained by Fox News shows that Jim Biden was directly involved in brokering the deal, and attempted to drag now-vice presidential candidate Kamala Harris into the mess.
Fox News reported:
An email exclusively obtained by Fox News, with the subject line “Phase one domestic contacts/ projects” and dated May 15, 2017, Biden’s brother, Jim Biden, shared a list of “key domestic contacts for phase one target projects.”
The list, included Harris, D-Calif.; Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y.; Sen. Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn.; Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif.; Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y.; New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo; New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio; former Virginia Gov. Terry McCauliffe, among others.
It is unclear if any of the Democrats were ever contacted about the “target projects.”
Fox News noted that the email was not related to or included in materials found on the hard drive of Hunter Biden’s laptop.
In the hot seat
Neither Harris nor Biden have been required to address allegations of involvement in shady business deals, nor have they attempted to issue denials of the bombshell revelations that have been leaked over the last week.
However, Donald Trump is expected to take Biden to task over the charges that he allowed his son to use his office for financial gain during the Obama administration.
Mainstream media outlets, along with social media giants like Twitter and Facebook have mounted a brazen censorship campaign since the New York Post went public with Hunter Biden’s emails, but despite their efforts, the story continues to gain traction.
Trump campaign manager Bill Stepien made it clear that Trump will not allow Biden to go unchallenged on the issue during Thursday’s debate, saying that “if the media won’t ask Joe Biden these questions, the President will, and there will be no escape for Biden.”
