In her new book, “Laptop from Hell” New York Post columnist Miranda Devine gives details about just how deep Hunter Biden was in business with the Chinese. “The Biden family offered their services to a huge, Chinese government-linked energy consortium to expand its business around the world. How do we know? Because of hundreds of emails documenting the deal found on Hunter Biden’s laptop, left in a Delaware repair shop in April 2019” the book states.
The laptop unearthed dozens of emails and photos regarding the business relationship Hunter Biden came to have with Ye Jianming, a 40-year-old chairman of CEFC, China’s largest private energy company.
As the New York Post reports, “Ye’s task was to spend $1.5 billion as quickly as possible to ensure the Czech Republic would become China’s ‘Gateway to the European Union,’ a priority of President Xi Jinping.”
“To that end, Ye bought everything from a football team and a brewery to an airline, before being named “special economic adviser” to Czech President Milos Zeman.
Now he was looking for an influential partner to help with acquisitions in other locations around the world that had strategic significance for the Chinese state.”
Ye was introduced to Hunter Biden with the help of trusted Biden family friend Rob Walker, a former Clinton administration official, whose wife was also Jill Biden’s assistant when she was second lady.
In 2017, three weeks after Biden left office as Vice President in the Obama administration, Hunter flew to Miami to meet Chairman Ye who was in town for the Miami International Boat Show.
Hunter “met with Ye, over a private dinner on Tuesday night, at which the CEFC chairman made him an offer too good to refuse: $10 million a year, for a minimum of three years, for “introductions alone,” as Hunter would later assert in an imperious email to CEFC executives.”
The New York Post reports:
Ye sealed the new alliance with a rich gift — a 3.16-carat diamond worth $80,000. Photographs of the stunning stone appear on Hunter’s laptop along with a grading report that lists it as a “round brilliant” of Grade F with prime “VS2” clarity and “excellent” cut.
The gift could not have come at a better time. Hunter was in the middle of an ugly divorce from Kathleen, and his office manager, Joan Peugh, had just sent him the latest in a series of overdue bills, a tax collection notice from the District of Columbia for $47,226.78.
Hunter would tell the New Yorker’s Adam Entous that he had flown to Miami to meet Chairman Ye purely for charitable purposes, hoping to secure a donation to World Food Program USA, the nonprofit on whose board he served and which he had used before as a cover for his foreign business activities.
Hunter said it was just chance that the altruistic encounter “turned to business opportunities” and claimed to be surprised when Ye gave him the diamond. He didn’t mention the happy coincidence that his business partners Gilliar and Walker were with him in Miami to clinch a business deal with CEFC.
