13 Times Joe Biden Was Involved in Family Business Corruption

President Joe Biden was involved in his corrupt family business at least 13 times over nine years.

While Joe Biden and his staff have claimed seven times the president has had no part in the family business, overwhelming evidence suggests Joe Biden has not just been involved in the family business but has played a key role with his son Hunter and brother James.

The evidence includes photos of Joe Biden meeting family business partners, Hunter’s former business partner’s testimony about Joe Biden’s involvement, Joe Biden flying to foreign countries to meet with Hunter’s business partners, and a voice recording of Joe Biden calling Hunter about a Chinese business deal.

The evidence has convinced 58 percent of voters that Joe Biden has played a role in his family’s business. Sixty percent say Hunter Biden, a key member of the family enterprise, has sold “influence and access” to Joe Biden.


In 2019, Hunter’s “laptop from hell” revealed in texts the Biden family’s payout vehicle. The mechanism includes a collection of 50 percent of familial salaries for 30 years. For instance, Hunter has reportedly paid thousands of dollars for Joe Biden’s house repairs from the money obtained from selling access to Joe Biden.

“I hope you all can do what I did and pay for everything for this entire family for 30 years,” Hunter described in texts to his daughter. “It’s really hard. But don’t worry, unlike Pop [Joe], I won’t make you give me half your salary.”


In 2018, Joe Biden left Hunter Biden a voicemail about a business deal with Chinese energy giant CEFC. The voicemail detailed Joe Biden’s worry that sensitive information was included in a New York Times article about Hunter’s involvement with CEFC’s chairman Ye Jianming, who was arrested in China on bribery charges.

“Hey pal, it’s Dad. It’s 8:15 on Wednesday night. If you get a chance just give me a call. Nothing urgent. I just wanted to talk to you,” Joe Biden said. “I thought the article released online, it’s going to be printed tomorrow in the Times, was good. I think you’re clear. And anyway if you get a chance give me a call, I love you,” the message concluded.


Between 2009 and 2017, according to White House visitor logs obtained by the New York Post, Hunter’s corrupt business partner, Eric Schwerin, met with Joe Biden at the White House 19 times between 2009 and 2015. Joe Biden was vice president during this time. Schwerin was the president of the infamous but now-dissolved investment fund Rosemont Seneca Partners.

In 2017, Tony Bobulinski, Hunter’s former business partner,

met twice with Joe Biden to discuss a business deal with China. “I directly dealt with the Biden family, including Joe Biden,” Bobulinski stated.


After Bobulinski met with Joe Biden, brother Jim Biden, and Hunter to discuss their deal in China, Bobulinski messaged James, telling him to “thank Joe for his time.”


In 2017, Hunter described Joe Biden as one of his “new office mates” after he “went into business with the CEFC executive,” the Washington Post reported. Hunter had a key made for Joe Biden to use at the House of Sweden in Georgetown. The Post reported:

On Sept. 21, 2017, Hunter Biden wrote to a building manager requesting new office signage to reflect a new family enterprise and a new business relationship: “The Biden Foundation and Hudson West (CEFC-US),” he wrote in emails to the property manager.

He also requested keys for his new office mates: his father, Joe; his mother, Jill; his uncle James; and the Chinese executive, Gongwen Dong.

As part of the request, he provided what he said was his father’s cellphone number, saying an office representative could use it to contact his new office mates.


In 2017, Joe Biden wrote a college recommendation letter for a child of Hunter’s Chinese business partner, Jonathan Li, with whom Joe Biden met in China. Li is CEO of BHR, the same company linked to Chinese oil interests and in which the Biden administration reportedly sold 950,000 barrels of oil from the U.S. Strategic Petroleum Reserve. Hunter’s attorney told the Times that Joe Biden’s son left BHR’s board in 2020.


In 2016, Joe and Hunter Biden flew aboard Air Force Two to Mexico, where Hunter met with his business associates from Mexico City. On the trip, Jeff Cooper, who ran a large litigation firm, SimmonsCooper, invested $1 million in Hunter and James’ now defunct hedge fund. The New York Post reported:

SimmonsCooper also put up $1 million in investment capital for Hunter and his uncle Jim [James] Biden’s abortive attempt to run a hedge fund in 2009. When the venture ended, the Bidens returned the money.

Cooper joined the VP’s entourage on Air Force Two to Mexico in 2016, when he and Hunter were trying to negotiate an ill-fated petroleum deal with Aleman Magnani.

At 6 p.m. on Feb. 24, 2016, about an hour after “wheels up” from Joint Base Andrews on the five-hour flight to Mexico City, Hunter wrote a plaintive email to Aleman Magnani using Air Force Two’s secure, high-speed satellite communications channel. He blind-copied Cooper.


In 2015, Hunter brought Joe Biden to dinner with his business associates from Ukraine, Russia, and Kazakhstan to a popular Washington, DC, restaurant. Joe Biden was vice president at the time. The New York Post reported:

Online photos of the interior of Cafe Milano match the background of the shot that shows the Bidens smiling while flanked by Kazakhstani oligarch Kenes Rakishev and Karim Massimov, a former prime minister of Kazakhstan.


In 2015, the day after Joe Biden met with Hunter’s foreign business partners at Cafe Milano from Ukraine, Russia, and Kazakhstan, one of the men emailed Hunter his thanks for the “opportunity to meet your father.” The New York Post reported:

The never-before-revealed meeting is mentioned in a message of appreciation that Vadym Pozharskyi, an adviser to the board of Burisma, allegedly sent Hunter Biden on April 17, 2015, about a year after Hunter joined the Burisma board at a reported salary of up to $50,000 a month.

“Dear Hunter, thank you for inviting me to DC and giving an opportunity to meet your father and spent [sic] some time together. It’s realty [sic] an honor and pleasure,” the email reads.

An earlier email from May 2014 also shows Pozharskyi, reportedly Burisma’s No. 3 exec, asking Hunter for “advice on how you could use your influence” on the company’s behalf.


In 2014, a photo reveals Joe Biden golfing with his son Hunter and Devon Archer, Hunter’s fellow board member at Ukrainian gas company Burisma. Archer is now in prison for fraud. “The photograph includes a fourth man who has not been identified. However, he is not Burisma’s top executive Taras Burdeinyi or founder Mykola Zlochevsky. Photographs of both men can be seen here and here,” Reuters reported.


In 2014, photos show Joe Biden meeting with Hunter’s Mexican business associates, billionaire Miguel Alemán Velasco and his son Miguel Aleman Magnani, in the vice president’s office. “The then-vice president also flew Hunter and his partner Jeff Cooper on Air Force 2 to Mexico City in 2016 where Hunter arranged to meet Alemán’s son for meetings over a ‘flippin gigantic’ business deal,” the Daily Mail reported.


In 2013, Hunter flew to China with his father aboard Air Force Two. During the excursion, Hunter introduced Joe Biden to his Chinese business partner Li, who is the CEO of the same company linked to Chinese oil interests and in which the Biden administration reportedly sold 950,000 barrels of oil from the U.S. Strategic Petroleum Reserve.

Ten days later after the visit, China issued Hunter’s firm a business license and the firm won an investment worth $1 billion. The New York Post reported:

Ten days later, Hunter’s company inked a deal with the state-owned Bank of China and created the $1 billion investment fund called Bohai Harvest RST (BHR), according to reporting by Peter Schweizer, president of the Government Accountability Institute and the best-selling author of “Secret Empires: How the American Political Class Hides Corruption and Enriches Family and Friends.”

A representative for BHR told The New Yorker in July 2019 that Hunter Biden introduced his father to Chinese private equity executive Jonathan Li during the trip. Li later became the CEO of BHR.

Joe Biden’s Voicemail To Hunter Means It’s Time To Appoint A Special Counsel

In 2018, while Hunter Biden was reportedly under investigation for his dealings with Chinese businessmen, Joe Biden left a voicemail message telling Hunter: “I think you’re clear.” This latest development in the Biden family pay-to-play scandal provides further proof a special counsel is needed to oversee the ongoing criminal probe.

In an exclusive, The Daily Mail on Monday reported that a voicemail recovered “from a backup of Hunter’s iPhone XS,” stored on his abandoned MacBook laptop, captured Joe Biden leaving this message for Hunter on December 12, 2018: “Hey pal, it’s Dad. It’s 8:15 on Wednesday night. If you get a chance just give me a call. Nothing urgent. I just wanted to talk to you. I thought the article released online, it’s going to be printed tomorrow in the Times, was good. I think you’re clear. And anyway if you get a chance, give me a call, I love you.”

The New York Times article referenced by the now-president, entitled “A Chinese Tycoon Sought Power and Influence. Washington Responded,” detailed the dealings of two corrupt Chinese businessmen, Ye Jianming and Patrick Ho—both of whom had connections to the Biden family through CEFC China Energy.

Ye acquired CEFC in 2006, according to the Times article, with the business focused on “securing the rights to overseas oil fields in strife-torn places like Chad, South Sudan, and Iraq.” “From 2009 to 2017, CEFC’s revenues jumped from $48 million to $37 billion,” the Times reported, noting that Ye’s first outreach to the Biden family came in 2015.

The Washington Post, which independently authenticated Hunter’s abandoned laptop months after its pre-election discovery, likewise reported that emails recovered from the hard drive showed that an intermediary for CEFC first “reached out to Hunter Biden in December 2015 to set up a meeting between the then-vice president’s son and Ye.”

The proposed 2015 dinner didn’t happen, but the Times article reported that an aide to Ye would later meet Hunter. Then, in May 2017, Hunter met with Ye in Miami. During that meeting, Hunter reportedly “offered to use his contacts to help identify investment opportunities for Ye’s company, CEFC China Energy, in liquefied-natural-gas projects in the United States.” As a thank you, Ye sent a note of gratitude and a 2.8-carat diamond to Hunter’s hotel room.

While the natural gas project discussed never materialized, in early August 2017, Hunter executed a consulting agreement with CEFC. It provided him a retainer of $500,000 and a monthly stipend of $100,000 while James Biden, Joe’s brother and Hunter’s uncle, pocketed $65,000 a month. According to the Washington Post, “over the course of 14 months, the Chinese energy conglomerate and its executives paid $4.8 million to entities controlled by Hunter Biden and his uncle.”

Then in November 2017, Ho, the CEFC vice-chairman and secretary-general, transferred to one of Hunter Biden’s entities $1 million, ostensibly for “representation.” Hunter, however, seemed to have no role in defending Ho, who was charged that month for crimes related to alleged bribes to officials in Chad and Uganda and attempting to arrange for CEFC to serve as a middleman with Iran to avoid sanctions. Following his arrest, Ho also called James Biden, although James believed the call was likely meant for Hunter.

In 2018, when the article that prompted Joe Biden’s messages hit, the millions in payments from CEFC to business ventures controlled by Hunter Biden were not known. Thus, at the time, the Times merely reported, “it is unclear whether Hunter Biden struck any business deals with CEFC or Mr. Ye.” Since then, the public has learned both of the multi-million-dollar connection between Hunter and CEFC and of a video showing Hunter calling Ho “the f-cking spy chief of China who started the company that my partner [Jianming], who is worth $323 billion, founded and is now missing.”

Also unknown when the Times ran its December 2018 story was that Hunter Biden was himself purportedly under investigation for his business dealings with CEFC. A month after the 2020 election, however, CNN reported that federal prosecutors in Delaware were investigating Hunter Biden’s business dealings, specifically his dealings in China and with CEFC. Significantly, in its report, CNN claimed that two people briefed on the Hunter Biden investigation claimed it “began as early as 2018.”

That Joe Biden told his son “I think you’re clear” in relation to reporting discussing Hunter’s connection with CEFC, and that this assurance came just one week after Ho’s conviction while Hunter Biden was reportedly under investigation for his business dealings with Ye and Ho, raises the question of whether Joe Biden had any inside information concerning the investigation of his son.

A related question concerns the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act wiretapping of Ho. According to The Daily Mail article that broke news of Joe Biden’s voicemail message, the outlet had obtained a copy of a FISA surveillance order that “revealed that federal agents were monitoring Ho as a potential spy for China.” That surveillance likely continued, at a minimum, until Ho’s arrest in late 2017, meaning that the FISA surveillance likely swept up some communications with or about Hunter Biden.

Even if not, the evidence continues to mount against the Biden family, leaving two fundamental questions: What is taking the Delaware U.S. attorney so long? And why hasn’t a special counsel been appointed yet?

GOP Senators Release More Receipts Showing The Depths Of Biden Family Profiteering With Foreign Enemies

Republican Sens. Chuck Grassley of Iowa and Ron Johnson of Wisconsin released new documents on Monday indicating that President Joe Biden’s son Hunter Biden and his brother James Biden were extensively involved with and profited from business deals with companies that operate on behalf of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and other corrupt regimes.

These new findings support what Grassley and Johnson both documented in their 2020 investigation into the Biden family’s corruption, but they have yet to catch due attention from the corporate media.

“These new records support the findings in our reports from last Congress in September and November 2020 — reports that the liberal media and our Democratic colleagues said were Russian disinformation,” Grassley said in his address to the Senate floor on Monday. “Forget the facts, forget the evidence, forget investigative journalism.  The liberal media wanted to provide cover for then-candidate Joe Biden. They did whatever they could to smear our investigation.”

[embedded content]

Much of the blame for this lack of attention, Johnson added in his floor speech, lies with their Democrat colleagues and the former intelligence officials who penned the sham letter claiming that information discovered on Hunter’s abandoned laptop was Russian disinformation.

“By casting doubt on evidence of the Bidens’ corrupt practices, these former intelligence officials interfered in the 2020 election to a far greater extent than Russia could have ever hoped to achieve,” Johnson said. “Their willing accomplices in the press amplified this disinformation letter and by doing so were equally guilty of egregious election interference.”

The Bidens Profited from CCP-Linked Business

Grassley and Johnson previously established that the Bidens were deeply involved with an energy company controlled by the CCP. As a result, that company, CEFC, funneled millions to Hunter to offer legal representation to the “spy chief of China,” Dr. Patrick Ho Chi-Ping. The same month that money was transferred to Hunter’s company Owasco through a middleman company, Ho was arrested for corruption and bribery.

Ho contacted James when he was arrested, but new documents released by the Republican senators show that Joe Biden’s brother, too, is guilty of receiving vaguely attributed funds from some of communist China’s biggest players.

Combined, James and Hunter’s companies received upwards of $4.8 million from CEFC, “an arm of the Chinese government,” between August 2017 and September 2018. James’s company Lion Hall Group alone received $1.4 million from CEFC via at least 20 wire transfers from Hunter’s company Owasco, something The Washington Post only recently admitted.

In addition to receiving money from CEFC, Hunter and James both profited off of numerous deals with CCP oligarchs and operated companies that shelled out tens of thousands of dollars to communist-connected businesses.

James was named a manager at Hunter’s company Hudson West Three in August 2017. At the time, the agreement designated $100,000 to Hunter and $65,000 to James every month. This lucrative deal was made possible after Northern International, a company with deep connections to communist China partner and CEFC founder Ye Jianming, wired $5 million to Hudson West Three that same month.

At the same time that Hunter’s company Hudson West Three was making payments to a CCP-controlled company, Hunter and James were also receiving wire payments with thousands of dollars. Recently released receipts show Owasco was entitled to several $165,000 wires from Hudson West Three in January of 2018. James’s company The Lion Hall Group also received nearly $18,000 from Hudson West Three the same month that several CEFC wire payments were made.


Receipts from April 2018 show that Hudson West Three, under the leadership of James and Hunter, wired tens of thousands of funds to Coldharbour Capital. This company was connected to Ye Jianming’s associate Mervyn Yan, who has strong ties to the communist regime in China.

“These transfers aren’t by accident. There’s clearly a scheme here,” Grassley said. “There’s a plan among and between all these individuals and their respective companies.”

The April receipts also show Hunter’s Owasco received another payment of $165,000 and James’ Lion Hall Group accepted a wire for roughly $34,000 for “office expense and reimbursement.”


In addition to presenting the sketchy payments from Hudson West Three, Grassley and Johnson produced bank records and credit card authorizations from September 2017 that confirmed that Hunter and James “went on $99,000 global spending spree courtesy of Gongwen Dong,” a Chinese executive and one of Hunter’s associates.

“The spending spree included airline tickets, purchases at Apple stores, hotels, and restaurants,” Grassley noted.


“With these new records, there can be no doubt that James Biden was financially connected to corporations and individuals with extensive links to communist China,” Grassley said. “And that he and Hunter Biden were in it together, working to help a Chinese government-linked energy company pursue deals and expand its reach in the energy sector.”

The Bidens Made Sketchy Deals Outside China

As Johnson noted in his floor speech on Monday, the Biden family business extends far beyond just striking deals with Chinese energy companies. There is and has been plenty of evidence suggesting that Joe, James, and Hunter were monetarily involved with multiple foreign oligarchs, especially in Ukraine.

Hunter exploited his father’s political reputation to strike business deals with oligarchs in Ukraine and China, a fact that was apparent even before the laptop emerged. Hunter may have even possibly given a portion of his equity deals to his father, but the legacy press refuses to report on that significance.

Despite Joe’s adamancy that he knew nothing of his son’s overseas business dealings, documents suggest that the now-president was actively engaged with his son’s business partners during his vice presidency.

Mere months after the Revolution of Dignity in Ukraine in February of 2014, Joe met with Hunter’s business partner Devon Archer at the White House. Days later, Joe jetted off on an official White House trip to Ukraine because he was considered the “public face of the [Obama] administration’s handling of Ukraine.” One day after Joe’s visit to the Eastern European country, Archer was named to the board of Burisma. Less than one week after that, Burisma owner Mykola Zlochevsky had $23 million from multiple accounts seized by British officials.

A timeline of the Biden family’s involvement also shows that Hunter’s investment firm Rosemont Seneca Thornton received $3.5 million to “the corrupt and now-sanctioned wife of the former Mayor of Moscow,” Elena Baturina, at the same time of the revolution. A few months later, Hunter joined the Burisma energy company board despite having no previous experience in the energy sector.

“It is quite interesting to see how much significant activity involving the Bidens and corrupt actors in Russia and Ukraine occurred within a six-week period only two months after the Ukrainian Revolution of Dignity.  It sure looks like they intended to cash in on the turmoil in Ukraine,” Johnson noted.

Despite these congressional and journalistic findings, the corporate media dismissed any and all allegations against the Bidens as disinformation. The press not only failed to report on these bombshell findings but also refused to ask the president about his suspect involvement with Hunter’s business partner, Burisma, and the CCP-controlled firm that offered Hunter a massive payout.

Even now, after The Washington Post and The New York Times reluctantly admitted that Hunter’s abandoned laptop publicized in 2020 was legitimate, Johnson and Grassley agree that the press is “not telling the whole truth.”

“My guess is that they learned a lot from their coverage of Nixon’s Watergate scandal cover-up.  They learned that when you’ve been caught in a cover-up — and that is what has happened here — you try to limit the damage by telling a little bit of the truth,” Johnson said.

There is a long list of questions from Johnson and Grassley about whether the Department of Justice and the U.S. intelligence communities have collected information about Hunter, Joe, James, and their communications with elites in countries that are the sworn enemy of the U.S. These questions, however, have gone unanswered for nearly two years.

Despite mounting evidence that the president and his family are deeply entrenched with and financially bound to foreign oligarchs, the Republicans said that the Biden administration has “been totally unresponsive to our oversight requests.”

Marsha Blackburn on ‘Red-Handed’: ‘Communist China Loves Biden’

Republican Sen. Marsha Blackburn (TN) slammed President Joe Biden, stating he is loved by “Communist China” in light of shocking revelations from Peter Schweizer’s new book Red-Handed: How American Elites Get Rich Helping China Win.

Blackburn linked to a Breitbart News report on the revelation in Schweizer’s book that donations from communist China to the University of Pennsylvania almost tripled after the university announced the launch of the Biden Center in February of 2017.

“In the three years before the announcement, the university received around $15 million. In the three years after, the total was close to $40 million. The latter number is $60 million from China if you include contracts,” Schweizer writes in Red-Handed. 
Breitbart News’s John Hayward reports:

Some of those donors were anonymous, but declared donors included the state-owned China Merchants Bank, and a company called Cathay Fortune owned by “a secretive Chinese billionaire who appears to have strong links with the Communist Party” named Yu Yong.

Cathay Fortune is especially interesting because it has a controlling interest in China Molybdenum, a mineral producer with Chinese military contracts that teamed up with Hunter Biden’s investment fund to invest in an African copper mine.

Schweizer notes that Tony Blinken worked as the Penn Biden Center’s managing director for a period “before heading off to work on the presidential campaign in 2019.”

Now, Blinken is Biden’s secretary of state, “a role in which he was famously ambushed and curb-stomped by Chinese diplomats during his first bilateral conference with them in March,” Hayward points out.

The book also exposes how the Biden family received a whopping $31 million from five deals in China with businessmen tied closely to Chinese intelligence, Breitbart News reported.

Breitbart News Politics Editor Emma-Jo Morris writes:

Multiple financiers with direct ties to Chinese intelligence partnered with Hunter Biden during and after his father’s time as Vice President — including the former head of the Ministry of State Security and the head of foreign intelligence recruitment — and some of those relationships remain intact…

Schweizer explains that Beijing saw a financial relationship with the Bidens as an opening for “elite capture,” which allowed Hunter Biden to secure meetings and score major deals with people in the highest levels of Chinese financial institutions and the Chinese Communist Party — and in return they would be able to leverage the Bidens’ power for their interests.

In yet another revelation from Red-Handed, it is brought to that a “Chinese global energy company linked to a Chinese intelligence operation sent close to $6 million to Hunter Biden in 2017,” Breitbart News’s Kristina Wong reports.

Wong reports:

The firm, now-defunct, was led by Ye Jianming, a wealthy and connected Chinese businessman who was chairman and majority owner of the global energy company, CEFC China Energy.

Furthermore, by July 2017, CEFC began making interest-free, forgivable loans to the Biden family. CEFC executive Zhao Running wrote that $5 million was intended as money lent to the BD family,” not just Hunter Biden.

“This $5 million loan to the BD [Biden] family is interest free,” Zhao wrote.

Schweizer notes that “interest-free loans provide tremendous leverage because the lender can demand its money back if it is displeased by any action.”

In August 2017, CEFC Infrastructure Investment LLC sent Hunter Biden’s law firm, Owasco, $100.000. Four days later, the firm wired $5 million to another entity controlled by Ye, which then started sending regular payment to Owasco. Biden then transferred $1.4 million of that money to a firm called Lion Hall Group, which was controlled by his uncle James Biden and his wife, Sara Biden.

Red-Handed: How American Elites Get Rich Helping China Win was released Tuesday, January 25, and has already claimed “the #1 bestseller spot on both Barnes & Noble and Amazon across all book categories and genres,” Breitbart News reportsSchweizer, the president of the Government Accountability Institute (GAI) and a senior contributor to Breitbart News, is also the bestselling author of Throw Them All Out, Clinton Cash, and Secret Empires.
