President Joe Biden has long taken pains to deny involvement in his son’s potentially unlawful foreign business dealings, but a recent report suggests that while serving as vice president, the current commander in chief met with two Chinese businessmen linked to an investment firm led by Hunter Biden – and did so inside the White House, as the Washington Examiner reports.
Referencing a story published in the Daily Mail, the outlet detailed the troubling ease with which executives from Chinese energy company Wanxiang finagled a face-to-face discussion with the then-vice president, a fact which seems to give lie to the senior Biden’s continued assertions of ignorance concerning his son’s financial entanglements abroad.
The Mail explained that the aforementioned 2014 meeting took place in the West Wing of the White House on July 25 of that year, starting at around 11:00 a.m. and lasting until 12:15 p.m., per information gleaned from official visitor logs.
Representing the Chinese enterprises that day, according to records, were Pin Ni, president of Wanxiang America, and Youhong Han, president of Wanxiang Resources Co.
Of interest to those now probing possible Biden family corruption is the fact that GreatPoint Energy, a client of Hunter Biden’s Seneca Global Advistors, had entered into a partnership with the aforementioned Chinese business interests just two years prior on a project intended to result in the construction of a $1.25 billion natural gas facility, according to the New York Post.
Bolstering Hunter’s relationship with the men who met his father in the West Wing was the substantial investment stake he held in the Fisker car company, which had been purchased by Wanxiang mere months before the White House confab occurred. The first son was even the owner of one of the manufacturer’s costly electric sports cars.
Illustrating the Chinese executives’ desire to curry favor with the Bidens was an email message sent by Ni a few days after the West Wing meeting, in which he made reference to problems he understood Hunter Biden to be having with his personal Fisker automobile and difficulties he was having finding service options for the car.
“It would be our honor to get your Fisker fixed. I would like to give you a call to see what we could do as next step,” Ni wrote.
“It would be our great honor to welcome you to visit Fisker or Wanxiang at any time,” Ni added, though it is unclear whether Hunter Biden ultimately took the Chinese executive up on his offer of assistance.
Given Joe Biden’s repeated disclaimers that he never asked and never knew about Hunter’s foreign business deals, evidence continues to mount that undermines those assertions at every turn, including a recent Fox News Digital report revealing that the senior Biden held in-person discussions with no fewer than 14 individuals with whom his son was involved in business negotiations or agreements, with many such chats occurring at the Naval Observatory – the official residence of the vice president.
With the ever-looming possibility that Hunter Biden could face serious legal jeopardy over numerous facets of his business and financial affairs, scrutiny such as that contained in the Daily Mail article was bound to draw the ire of the first son’s legal representatives. However, a response issued by a high-powered attorney supposedly representing the first son raised more than a few eyebrows.
Responding to a request from Mail reporter Josh Boswell for comment on his report, Latham & Watkins lawyer Christopher Clark sent an unintelligible reply that read, “…you are a parasite who lives of other peoples difficulties. Your parents won’t mount you. Pls include an explaination [sic] from “news corp’ lawyers of you exclude this comment this from your as to why you have done so after asking. Me fo my comment. Please.” Perhaps the specter of having to defend the indefensible has driven the poor man to drink.
