Hunter Biden letter dating from father's vice presidency raises more questions about China contacts

 February 14, 2024

A letter dating to Joe Biden's vice presidency was provided to House impeachment investigators that shows Hunter Biden engaging in business with China. 

The letter was shared by Rob Walker, a former Hunter Biden associate, who admitted that Biden's "interesting" last name would "open doors."

The letter, dated March 2016, was addressed from Hunter Biden to CEFC China Energy, a now-defunct Chinese energy conglomerate with ties to the Beijing regime.

Damning Biden letter surfaces

The draft letter was addressed to CEFC Executive Director Jianjun Zang with Hunter Biden's letterhead.

Biden instructed Zang to get in touch with James Gilliar, another Hunter Biden associate who sent a notorious e-mail mentioning "the big guy," said to be an alias for Joe Biden.

"We anticipate working together on a number of opportunities in the US and abroad," the letter from Hunter says.

“I believe we have presented a collection of projects that parallel the interests of you and your team and we look forward to discussing them in detail."

“As we await your next visit to the United States, please continue to coordinate all matters with my confidant and trusted advisor, James Gilliar,” the letter says.

Chian deal overlapped with vice presidency

CEFC paid over $7 million to Hunter Biden and his uncle James after former vice president Joe Biden left office in 2017.

Walker confirmed in his testimony to House impeachment investigators that he was the conduit for $1 million in CEFC cash to Biden family members in 2017 - payments he described as a "thank you" for past work.

Parts of Walker's testimony were corroborated by Tony Bobulinski, who famously identified Biden as "the big guy."

In testimony Tuesday, Bobulinski said the CEFC deal started forming in 2015 and that then-vice president Biden was fully aware.

“Joe Biden was aware of the CEFC transaction, enabled it, and had a constitutional responsibility and obligation to the American people to shut it down before it began,” Bobulinski said.

Walker has given a similar timeline, and he says Joe Biden met with CEFC's chairman just weeks after leaving office.

Even still, Walker has defended Biden against accusations of wrongdoing - insisting he was "never involved" in any business dealings.

No connection?

Democrats say there is no direct evidence establishing a link between Biden and his son's business - but Republicans say a trove of records points to Joe Biden's involvement in an elaborate and tangled financial web.

The White House has had trouble staying ahead of a steady trickle of evidence.

That includes a notorious, threatening text message from Hunter Biden to a CEFC associate that alluded to Joe Biden.

“I am sitting here with my father and we would like to understand why the commitment made has not been fulfilled,” Hunter wrote in the July 2017 message.

Joe Biden's role in helping his son's business in Ukraine has also come under close scrutiny.

Biden notoriously bragged about pressuring Ukraine to fire a prosecutor who investigated Burisma Holdings, a company that paid his son a lucrative salary for intangible services.
