Politico reported on Biden family corruption on August 2, 2019:

Biden family text with Hunter telling his sister Naomi that thier "Pop" Joe Biden received 50% of the Burisma kickbacks.[1]
The day the Bidens took over Paradigm Global Advisors was a memorable one.

In the late summer of 2006 Joe Biden’s son Hunter and Joe’s younger brother, James, purchased the firm. On their first day on the job, they showed up with Joe’s other son, Beau, and two large men and ordered the hedge fund’s chief of compliance to fire its president, according to a Paradigm executive who was present.

After the firing, the two large men escorted the fund’s president out of the firm’s midtown Manhattan office, and James Biden laid out his vision for the fund’s future. “Don’t worry about investors,” he said, according to the executive, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, citing fear of retaliation. “We've got people all around the world who want to invest in Joe Biden.”

At the time, the senator was just months away from both assuming the chairmanship of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee and launching his second presidential bid. According to the executive, James Biden made it clear he viewed the fund as a way to take money from rich foreigners who could not legally give money to his older brother or his campaign account. “We've got investors lined up in a line of 747s filled with cash ready to invest in this company,” the executive remembers James Biden saying.[2]

Beginning just before Joe Biden’s ascendancy to the Vice Presidency, Hunter Biden was traveling to Beijing meeting with Chinese financial institutions and political figures would ultimately become his investors. Finalized in 2013, the investment partnership included money from the Chinese government, social security, and major state-owned banks a veritable who’s who of Chinese state finance.[3]

The records show that Hunter Biden and his family were involved in a vast financial network that connected them to foreign nationals and foreign governments across the globe. Hunter Biden and Devon Archer, in particular, formed significant and consistent financial relationships with the corrupt oligarch Mykola Zlochevsky during their time working for Burisma and their firms made millions of dollars from that association while Joe Biden was vice president and the public face of the Obama administration’s Ukraine policy. Rosemont Seneca Thornton, an investment firm co-founded by Hunter Biden, received $3.5 million in a wire transfer from Elena Baturina, who allegedly received illegal construction contracts from her husband, the former mayor of Moscow. Biden and Archer’s work with Chinese nationals connected to the Communist regime illustrate the deep financial connections that accelerated while his father was vice president and continued after he left office.

2009

January 2009

June 2009

  • 25 June. Hunter Biden, Chris Heinz, stepson of John Kerry from Rosemount Seneca. The firm partners with the Thornton Group run by Devon Archer, and the Bank of China, to form Bohai Harvest RST (BHR) in China.[4]

2010

April 2010

  • 7-9 April. Hunter was introduced by Michael Lin (also Chun-Liang Lin, Chun Liang and Junliang 林俊良) to China’s most powerful government controlled financial institutions. Hunter was introduced as the chairman of Rosemont Seneca and the second son of the US Vice-President, and the purpose of his visit was to “deepen mutual understanding and explore the possibility of commercial cooperation”.[5]
  • Hunter met with Gao Xiqing, General Manager and Chief Investment Officer of China Investment Corporation (CIC); Equity Assets Department (Industrial Investment Department) of the National Council of Social Security Fund person in charge Ji Guoqiang; Vice President Cui Yong of China Life Asset Management Co. Ltd.; Peng Zuogang, General Manager of Postal Savings Bank of China; Zhang Lei, Founder of Hillhouse Capital, Wei Xin, Chairman of Founder Group, and Xia Yangjun, Vice President of Founder Group.
  • Hunter met with Gao Xiqing (高西庆), the then CPC Secretary and general manager of CIC, a Chinese sovereign wealth fund backed by the Ministry of Finance (MOF). Gao is a Chinese finance industry veteran with experience working in New York, and who would go on to become the Minister of Finance after managing CIC one of the world’s largest sovereign wealth fund. Rosemont Seneca via BHR would go on to partner with CIC subsidiary companies such as the Bank of China. MOF is the national executive agency of the central government which administers macroeconomic policies and the national annual budget.
  • The National Council for Social Security Funds (全国社会保障基金理事会) or SSF was established by the Central Committee of CCP and the State Council, and manages the National Social Security Fund. On April 7, HUNTER met with Ji Guoqiang (冀国强) head of the SSF’s equity assets department. Ji’s official CV shows in 2009 he attended the CCP’s Central Party School (中央党校) (CPS), the higher education institution which specifically trains CCP cadres. Xi Jinping was CPS president during Ji’s time there. Ji is now a Tianjin Standing Committee member and its United Front minister. The Tianjian government is an owner of Bohai Industrial Investment partnering with Rosemont Seneca, and its subsequent entities, in BHR Equity.
  • China Life Insurance (Group) Company (中国人寿保险(集团)公司) (China Life), is a stateowned enterprise (SOE), and China’s largest life insurer. China Life owns China Life Asset Management Co Ltd (中国人寿资产管理有限公司), China’s largest asset manager, and is controlled by and a holding company for MOF. Cui Yong is now the CCP Secretary and CEO of China Life. China Life was a key stakeholder in Bohai Industrial Investment the key partner in BHR.
  • Postal Savings Bank of China (PSBC 中国邮政储蓄银行) is the banking arm of the State Post Bureau (国家邮政局), and provides financial services to small business and rural or low-income customers. PSBC was a key minority shareholder on Bohai Industrial Investment partnering with BHR.
  • Zhang Lei (张磊) founded the leading private equity firm Hillhouse Capital. Zhang is also a former Yale graduate in 2005, who started Hillhouse in 2005 with seed capital from the Yale Endowment. Hillhouse was an early Tencent backer, and more recently of video conferencing software Zoom. Zhang is a multi-billionaire who is affiliated with several China friendly government and non-governmental organizations (NGOs), some of which are linked with the United Front’s foreign influence activities.
  • Zhang is also a Governing Board Member of the China-United States Exchange Foundation CUSEF (中美交流基金會), which aims to “improve communications and enhance understanding between the peoples of China and the US”, and was founded by the former Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) Chief Executive Tung Cheehwa GBM (董建華). Tung is now a Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference (中国人民政治协商会议) (CPPCC) vice-chairman. The CPPCC is a CCP led advisory committee and the highest ranked entity overseeing the United Front, according to a 2018 U.S.-China Economic and Security Review report.147 The same report says that the CUSEF has spent hundreds of thousands of dollars lobbying for China-U.S. relations as a registered foreign agent, and is involved in Chinese government influence operations, having collaborated with the CAIFC on multiple projects. CUSEF paid public relations firm Brown Lloyd James $20,000 per month to arrange various activities aimed at making the U.S. information environment friendlier to Beijing, according to 2011 disclosures filed under the Foreign Agents Registration Act.
  • Founder Group (北大方正集团有限公司) was originally a hi-tech spin off from Peking University (PKU), which later expanded into real estate and investment, and is allegedly backed by He Guoqiang (贺国强), the former secretary of the Central Commission for Discipline Inspection and Politburo Standing Committee member (2007 – 2012). The Founder Group is a politically important state linked company currently leading the Chinese push for semiconductor self-sufficiency.

  • 12-13 April. Vice President Biden met with then CCP General Secretary and Chinese President Hu Jintao at the Nuclear Security Summit in Washington, D.C..

2011

January 2011

  • 19 January. Wanxiang founder Lu met with Obama.[6]

April 2011

  • 18-20 April. Hunter visited leading Taiwan banks and financial institutions, along with Thornton Chairman James Bulger and CEO Michael Lin.[7]
  • FOIA records show Hunter visited China again in April 2011.[8]

August 2011

  • 17 August. Vice President Biden visited China for a five-day trip, meeting Chinese Foreign Minister Yang Jiechi.
  • Hunter and Bohai Harvest RST enjoy direct access to the Politburo via Yang Jiechi who is now a member and director of the Office of Foreign Affairs for the CCP.
  • VP Biden held talks with Xi Jinping, then Chinese Vice-President. At the meeting Biden said the US
“fully understands that Taiwan and Tibet issues are China's core interests, the U.S. will continue to resolutely pursue the one China policy, the U.S. does not support ‘Taiwan's independence’, and the U.S. fully recognizes that Tibet is an inalienable part of the People's Republic of China.”
Biden’s words are verbatim from China’s official standpoint on Taiwan and Tibet. Biden has spent more time in private meetings with Xi than any other world leader, including 25 hours of private dinners with Xi and one interpreter.[9]
  • Biden also met with General Secretary Hu Jintao at the Great Hall of the People, the same state building where the Thornton/Rosemont Solebury/SLLF delegation met with the Director General of the National People's Congress Foreign Affairs Committee in 2008.[10]
  • Biden said that a strong, prosperous and successful China that plays a bigger role in global affairs is in the interests of the US and the world at large. Biden urged the two nations to properly handle sensitive issues, boost people-to-people exchanges, economic cooperation, dialogue and consultations in regional and global affairs to rise to challenges facing the international community. Again, Biden used Chinese government speak on US-China relations in stark contrast to his language used in the late 90’s during the Clinton administration.
  • 20 August. VP Biden delivered a speech at Sichuan University, where he said:
“China’s development and prosperity are in line with the interest of the U.S”
in comments on the university’s website.[11] The Obama White House records published a transcript of the speech during which Biden said
“Let me be clear -- let me be clear: I believed in 1979 and said so and I believe now that a rising China is a positive development, not only for the people of China but for the United States and the world as a whole…In order to cement this robust partnership, we have to go beyond close ties between Washington and Beijing, which we’re working on every day, go beyond it to include all levels of government, go beyond it to include classrooms and laboratories, athletic fields and boardrooms.”
A few months after Biden’s Sichuan trip, Devon Archer and Michael Lin worked with a Sichuan Chemical, a large Sichuan state-owned company to set-up a major potash deal (that never materialized) for Prospect Global, a listed US company at the time, that soon delisted and no longer appears to be in business. It is unclear if the purpose of the deal was to just deliver Archer millions of dollars in compensation, to talk up the Prospect Global stock, or if it resulted in Sichuan Chemical transferring millions of US dollars to the US (either for capital flight purposes or to be directed to US politicians such as Biden and Kerry).

2012

February 2012

  • 17 February. Vice President Biden met with then Vice-President Xi Jinping in California.[12] By Joe Biden's count, he met with Xi for a rough total of 25 hours in 2011 and 2012.[13] One topic of discussion was access for US film companies in the China market.[14]
  • 19 February. Hunter Biden's Seneca Global Advisors advised GreatPoint, a US energy technology startup in receiving an equity investment of USD 420 million and project funding of USD 1.25 billion from Wanxiang Group (万向集团) <Wanxiang>, the largest foreign venture capital investment into the US that year.[15] The two parties agreed to jointly-develop a coal-to-natural gas facility in Xinjiang. The signing ceremony was attended by senior US and Chinese government officials, including Xi.[16]
  • Wanxiang founder Lu Guanqiu (鲁冠球), had met with Obama in January 2011, and employed Obama’s ally, former Chicago Mayor Richard Daley.10 Hunter had previously worked for Richard’s brother Secretary of Commerce William Daley, as Executive Director of E-Commerce Policy Coordination.11 William Daley was Obama’s former Chief of Staff (2011 - 2012).
  • Wanxiang is a long-established and politically well-connected industrial conglomerate based in Hangzhou, where Lu knew Xi from Xi’s days as Zhejiang CPC Secretary in the early 2000s (and Xi’s father in the 1980s).
  • Following the millions given to Massachusetts based GreatPoint, Wanxiang appears to have benefited from US policy decisions where BIDEN was involved: In 2013, Wanxiang acquired the bankrupt assets of A123 Systems Inc <A123>, and in 2014, won a bankruptcy auction for the assets of Fisker Automotive <Fisker>, the defunct manufacturer of the Karma plug-in hybrid sports car.12 Both Fisker and A123 were funded in part with US government loans to build cars in Delaware, BIDEN’s home state, which meant Wanxiang obtained technology developed with US taxpayer money. An investigative report said BIDEN’s administration pushed for the loans in 2009.13
  • Bankruptcy filings show HUNTER was also listed as a Fisker creditor, meaning he either had put down a deposit for a car, or was an early investor.14 Wanxiang also picked up a GM plant from the Fisker purchase, and sensitive technology from the A123 acquisition, that could be put to use by the Chinese military.15 Wanxiang is active in China’s foreign influence operations, including paying for Delaware students to study Mandarin in China.16
  • Wanxiang supports the Chinese government’s investments in North Korea, where it owns a major copper mine.17 Wanxiang’s imports also support the North Korean regime, and despite being one of the largest importers of North Korean minerals, it has so far managed to evade US sanctions which have ensnared its smaller competitors during Obama’s presidency.

2013

Hunter Biden, right, flew to China in 2013 aboard Air Force Two, with his father, Joe Biden, left, December 4, 2013. 10 days late Hunter Biden signed a $1.5 Billion deal with the Chinese military.[17]

Lee: “Does this building diplomatically have any concerns about potential perceptions of conflict or cronyism – which is what you’ve often accused the Russians of doing?”
Paski: “No, he’s a private citizen."[33]
"The appointment of the vice president’s son to a Ukrainian oil board looks nepotistic at best, nefarious at worst. No matter how qualified Biden is, it ties into the idea that U.S. foreign policy is self-interested, and that’s a narrative Vladimir Putin has pushed during Ukraine’s crisis with references to Iraq and Libya.

He then attended a “defensive” or “protective” briefing before he ever sat alongside Russian President Vladimir Putin at the Russia Today (RT) dinner, or before he talked with then-Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak. The briefing educated and sensitized Flynn to possible efforts by his Russian host to compromise the former high-ranking defense official and prepared him for conversations in which he could potentially extract intelligence for U.S. agencies such as the DIA. When Flynn returned from Moscow, he spent time briefing intelligence officials on what he learned during the Moscow contacts. Between two and nine intelligence officials attended the various meetings with Flynn about the RT event, and the information was moderately useful, about what one would expect from a public event.[77]
Spygate: DOJ redacted the word, "lures". "Lures" are infiltrators, provocateurs, or spies who offer bait, in this case Hillary Clinton's emails. Oconus = outside contiguous United States. The message from Peter Strzok to Lisa Page reads, "You get all our outside contiguous US spies approved?" It was sent after Sally Yates ended independent oversight of the DOJ-National Security Division, while FBI contractors conducted over 5,000 illegal FISA 702 "About queries," and before Adm. Rogers cutoff outside FBI contractor access to the FISA database. The primaries, Hillary's whitewash, and official counterintelligence investigation were yet to come.
  • 11 December. A New York Times editorial notes:[78]
"The credibility of Mr. Biden’s message may be undermined by the association of his son with a Ukrainian natural-gas company, Burisma Holdings, which is owned by a former government official suspected of corrupt practices. A spokesman for the son, Hunter Biden, argues that he joined the board of Burisma to strengthen its corporate governance. That may be so. But Burisma’s owner, Mykola Zlochevsky, has been under investigation in Britain and in Ukraine. It should be plain to Hunter Biden that any connection with a Ukrainian oligarch damages his father’s efforts to help Ukraine. This is not a board he should be sitting on."
  • James Risen later wrote at The Intercept that Biden’s message on the trip was being completely misinterpreted:[79]
"The then–vice president issued his demands for greater anti-corruption measures by the Ukrainian government despite the possibility that those demands would actually increase — not lessen — the chances that Hunter Biden and Burisma would face legal trouble in Ukraine."

  • April. Ukrainian prosecutor Yuriy Lutsenko said Amb. Marie Yovanovitch gave him a "Do Not Prosecute" list with Hunter Biden's name on it. The Hill reported,
While the 2016 presidential race was raging in America, Ukrainian prosecutors ran into some unexpectedly strong headwinds as they pursued an investigation into the activities of a nonprofit in their homeland known as the Anti-Corruption Action Centre (AntAC).

The focus on AntAC — whose youthful street activists famously wore “Ukraine F*&k Corruption” T-shirts — was part of a larger probe by Ukraine’s Prosecutor General’s Office into whether $4.4 million in U.S. funds to fight corruption inside the former Soviet republic had been improperly diverted.

The prosecutors soon would learn the resistance they faced was blowing directly from the U.S. Embassy in Kiev, where the Obama administration took the rare step of trying to press the Ukrainian government to back off its investigation of both the U.S. aid and the group.[85]

  • April 16. Hudson West III was incorporated. Hudson West III changed ownership at some unknown point. After that change, ownership was divided between Hunter Biden’s law firm, Owasco PC (50%) and Coldharbour Capital LLC (50%).

  • 20 January. Trump inaugurated.
  • February. Two weeks into Trump presidency. NSC staffers Eric Ciaramella and Sean Misko (who later joined Adam Schiff's congressional staff in 2019) openly discuss removing President Trump at a White House National Security Council meeting called by National Security Advisor Michael Flynn.[87] Paul Sperry reported:
The “all hands” meeting, held about two weeks into the new administration, was attended by hundreds of NSC employees.

“They were popping off about how they were going to remove Trump from office. No joke,” said one ex-colleague, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss sensitive matters.

A military staffer detailed to the NSC, who was seated directly in front of Ciaramella and Misko during the meeting, confirmed hearing them talk about toppling Trump during their private conversation, which the source said lasted about one minute. The crowd was preparing to get up to leave the room at the time.

“After Flynn briefed [the staff] about what ‘America First’ foreign policy means, Ciaramella turned to Misko and commented, ‘We need to take him out,’ ” the staffer recalled. “And Misko replied, ‘Yeah, we need to do everything we can to take out the president.’ “

Added the military detailee, who spoke on condition of anonymity: “By ‘taking him out,’ they meant removing him from office by any means necessary. They were triggered by Trump’s and Flynn’s vision for the world. This was the first ‘all hands’ [staff meeting] where they got to see Trump’s national security team, and they were huffing and puffing throughout the briefing any time Flynn said something they didn’t like about ‘America First.’ ”

He said he also overheard Ciaramella telling Misko, referring to Trump, "We can’t let him enact this foreign policy."

  • 9 February to 12 April. April 12, 2017, a Hudson West V Bank of China (BoC) account received three incoming wires totaling $27,917,665 from an entity called Kaiyan US Fund III LP and one wire for $100,000 from a company called Foxwood Asset Management Co. Limited. Both Kaiyan US Fund III LP and Foxwood Asset Management Co Limited have addresses in Beijing.
  • 19 March Kaiyan US Fund III LP also sent one wire for $50,551.79 directly to a different account for Hudson West V, which is included in the aforementioned $20,310,396.79 total of incoming wires for that account.
  • These transactions offer a window into a much larger web of transactions carried out among a vast network of corporate entities, many with complex ownership structures, variously owned and operated by Gongwen Dong, Ye Jian Ming, an individual named Shan Gao, and other individuals associated with CEFC China Energy, Chinese state-owned enterprises, and unknown individuals based primarily in China. Little is known about Shan Gao, other than the fact that banks found her, through complex ownership structures, to be the owner of multiple entities involved in the transactions. For multiple entities involved in these transactions, banks were not able to determine ownership at all.
  • As an example of the size and scope of the networks involving Gongwen Dong, Senate investigators found that between 23 October 2017, and 20 December 2018, Hudson West I, for which Gongwen is also listed as an account signer, received incoming wires totaling over $114 million and sent outgoing wires totaling over $113 million. Between Jan. 25, 2018, and Dec. 28, 2018, Hudson West Aggregator, another LLC associated with Gongwen that was involved in three transactions with Hudson West V, received incoming transfers totaling more than $3 million and sent outgoing transfers totaling more than $13 million. Investigators examining these transactions by Gongwen Dong and his associates explained:
"We opt to include wires, which appear to be conducted for investment purposes, as we believe that fund movement is ultimately conducted in an effort to layer funds. Conclusion: Unusual movement of funds between various entities with a complex ownership structures, at times involving funds originating from Chinese [state-owned enterprises] SOE, Chinese based entities registered with [a] high-risk tax heaven country, and [politically exposed persons] PEPs. It is to note that fund movement appears to be an effort to introduce foreign funds from unknown sources into the U.S. by investing in large projects and by purchasing luxury goods and properties. Total filing amounts to $902,200,297."[88]
Certain transactions involving Hudson West III, CEFC Infrastructure, and Hudson West V were among those identified as potential efforts to layer funds.
The Smoking Gun email.[89]
  • May. Ye Jian Ming and Hunter Biden meet privately at a hotel in Miami. Biden says he offered to use his contacts to help “identify investment opportunities for Ye’s company CEFC China Energy, in liquified natural gas projects in the United States.” After the dinner, Ye sends a 2.8-carat diamond to Hunter’s hotel room with a card thanking him for the meeting.
  • During the divorce proceedings, Hunter Biden and his ex-wife Kathleen dispute the value of the diamond; he says it is worth $10,000, she contends it is worth $80,000.
  • Biden denied that the diamond could be considered a bribe. “What would they be bribing me for? My dad wasn’t in office.” Hunter Biden told The New Yorker he gave the diamond to his associates and doesn’t know what happened to it.
  • Also during the divorce proceedings, Kathleen “requested that Hunter’s access to their joint assets be limited because the couple had a double mortgage and owed more than $300,000 in back taxes.”[90]
Joe Biden figures prominently in an investment pitch by Hunter Biden and associates to CEFC China Energy. CEFC is owned by the Bank of China and the People's Liberation Army of China.[91]

July 2017

  • July 2017 o November 2018. Hudson West V received wires totaling $20,310,396.79 with $20,893,505.0 leaving that same account. All but $259,845 of the total amount transferred out of the account went to U.S. bank accounts for various LLCs, most of which were documented to be involved in the business of real estate investment and management. Several of those LLCs are also tied to Gongwen Dong.
  • Twenty million dollars of the $20,310,396.79 going into the aforementioned Hudson West V US account was transferred into that account from another Hudson West V account at the Bank of China (BoC).
Hunter Biden, Jim Biden, and Jim's wife Sara all received credit cards with a $100,000 line of credit from CEFC entities.
  • 3 August and 7 September. Hudson West III checking accounts were opened with Mervyn Yan and Hunter Biden. Gongwen Dong was a former signer, which suggests that at one time he was associated with Hudson West III’s bank accounts and finances.
  • 4 August. CEFC Infrastructure Investment (US) LLC, a subsidiary of Ye Jian Ming’s CEFC China Energy Company that listed Gongwen Dong as its director, sent Hunter Biden’s law firm, Owasco, a payment for $100,000. This transaction was identified for potential criminal financial activity. One of the investment entities of CEFC Infrastructure Investment is reportedly Shanghai Huaxin Group, a Chinese state-owned enterprise “engaged in petroleum products.” That company is owned by CEFC Shanghai International Group Ltd., which is controlled by Shanghai Guosheng Group, another state-owned enterprise. According to reporting, CEFC Shanghai was a CEFC subsidiary linked to the aforementioned corruption allegations involving the head of the China Development Bank. These examples further illustrate the deep financial connections between Biden, Owasco, and the Chinese government.
  • 8 August. CEFC Infrastructure Investment wired $5 million to the bank account for Hudson West III. These funds may have originated from a loan issued from the account of a company called Northern International Capital Holdings, a Hong Kong-based investment company identified at one time as a “substantial shareholder” in CEFC International Limited along with Ye. It is unclear whether Hunter Biden was half-owner of Hudson West III at that time. However, starting on Aug. 8, the same day the $5 million was received, and continuing through Sept. 25, 2018, Hudson West III sent frequent payments to Owasco, Hunter Biden’s firm. These payments, which were described as consulting fees, reached $4,790,375.25 in just over a year.
Hunter Biden wire transfers to Jim Biden, Joe's brother.
  • 14 August 2017 to 3 August 2018. Hunter Biden moved large sums of money from his firm, Owasco, to James Biden’s consulting firm, the Lion Hall Group. Owasco sent 20 wires totaling $1,398,999 to the Lion Hall Group, a consulting firm that lists James Biden and his wife, Sara Biden, on the bank account. This transaction was identified for potential criminal financial activity. These transfers began less than one week after CEFC Infrastructure Investment wired $5 million to Hudson West III and Hudson West III sent its first payment of $400,000 to Owasco. Most of the payments from Owasco to the Lion Hall Group had vague notes in the memo lines, 15 of which simply indicated that they were for further credit to James Biden; however, the memo line for one of the payments read “HW3,” which indicates some of the transferred money could be from Hudson West III. When the bank contacted Sara Biden regarding the overall wire activity, she stated that the Lion Hall Group and Owasco provide international and business consulting and that the Lion Hall Group was assisting Owasco with an international client through a contract that had since terminated. Sara Biden told the bank that she would not provide any supporting documentation, and she also refused to provide additional information to more clearly explain the activity. Consequently, the bank submitted the account for closure.
  • 17 August. Just days after the first transfer from Hunter Biden's Owasco PC to Jim Biden's The Lion Hall Group, it was publicly announced that Ye Jian Ming’s CEFC Energy was in talks to purchase a stake in the Russian state-owned energy company Rosneft.[93]
  • Around the same time, there were also outgoing wires from Hudson West III to various accounts associated with Ye and Gongwen, including CEFC Infrastructure Investment, Coldharbour Capital (located at Gongwen Dong’s address), Gongwen’s personal bank account, a separate bank account for Hudson West V, and Bo Jian Group Investment Company (a company with a complex ownership structure controlled by Ye Jina Ming in which Gongwen Dong is also reportedly a part owner). These transactions and the transacting entities begin to paint a mosaic of the complex corporate structure that existed between entities linked to Hunter Biden and his associates and family and Chinese companies linked to the Communist government.
  • Senate investigators were able to confirm that Hunter Biden’s associate, Gongwen Dong, is connected to seven of the eight numbered Hudson West corporate entities. The exception is Hudson West II; however, that entity shares a permanent mailing address with Hudson West V, which has a bank account that is connected to Gongwen. Thus, it appears that Hudson West II is most likely connected to him. The Hudson West entities are important entities in the flow of funds among and between Ye, Gongwen, and Hunter Biden and his associates. There are frequent fund transfers across these numbered Hudson West entities, and transactions involving all eight have been identified for potential criminal financial activity. For example, Hudson West III was not the only Hudson West entity associated with CEFC, Ye Joan Ming’s business. According to reporting, Hudson West V maintains an ownership interest in CEFC Infrastructure Investment, a subsidiary of CEFC. By extension, this means Hudson West V is linked to Ye Jian Ming and the aforementioned $5 million payment to Hudson West III on 8 August 2017. Hudson West V also reportedly had ownership in a series of other companies: Hudson West Partners LLC, Hudson West Aggregator LLC, Hudson West VIII LLC, and Hudson West VII LLC which begins to show the complex corporate structure at play.
  • 8 September. CEFC acquired a 14 percent stake for US$ 9 billion in the Russian state-run oil giant Rosneft.[94]
  • Hunter Biden and Gongwen Dong, a Chinese national who executed transactions for limited liability companies controlled by Ye Jian Ming, applied to a bank and opened a line of credit under the business name Hudson West III LLC (Hudson West III).[95] Hunter Biden, James Biden, and James Biden’s wife, Sara Biden, were all authorized users of credit cards associated with the account. The Bidens subsequently used the credit cards they opened to purchase $101,291.46 worth of extravagant items, including airline tickets and multiple items at Apple Inc. stores, pharmacies, hotels and restaurants. The cards were collateralized by transferring $99,000 from a Hudson West III account to a separate account, where the funds were held until the cards were closed. The transaction was identified for potential financial criminal activity.
  • 14 October. Hunter Biden wrote that he and Ye Jianming had a “solid” relationship. Biden said he was the first guest at Ye’s new apartment and that the billionaire cooked lunch for him. “I’ve been talking to the Chairman on a regular basis. I was his first guest in his new apartment/ he cooked me lunch himself and we ate in the kitchen together.” Biden added that Ye “has me helping him on a number of his personal issues,” including for “staff visas and some more sensitive things.”[96]
  • 23 October. Hunter Biden purchased 10% of BHR, via his investment vehicle Skaneateles LLC. The new US holders of BHR are Thornton (10%), Ulyssees Diversified Inc (10%) and Skaneateles LLC (10%).
  • 18 November. Patrick Ho arrested and charged with violations of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, international money laundering, and conspiracy to commit both.[97][98]
  • Ho is the General Secretary of CEFC's Hong Kong and Virginia-registered non-profit CEFC–China Energy Fund Committees with special consultative status to the United Nations Economic and Social Council.
  • Ho makes a phone call to Jim Biden, Joe Biden’s younger brother, and asked Biden for a lawyer. Jim referred him to Hunter, who has not practiced criminal law.[99]
  • Department of Justice documents describe Ye Jianming as Patrick Ho’s boss and, again, note that Ye’s company supplied funding to the China Energy Fund Committee.[100]
  • Ho was convicted in March 2019 on charges of money laundering, conspiracy, and violations of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act and was sentenced to three years in U.S. prison for his role in a multimillion-dollar scheme to bribe officials in [Chad] and Uganda in exchange for business advantages for CEFC, Ye’s company.[101]

January 2018

  • January 2018 to October 2018. Hudson West III sent funds directly to the Lion Hall Group. James B. "Jim" Biden, Joe Biden's brother, is the principal contact for the Lion Hall Group. Hudson West III sent the Lion Hall Group outgoing wires totaling $76,746.15 with the memo, “office expense and reimbursement.” These transactions illustrate a direct financial link between Hudson West III (which was connected to CEFC, the Chinese government, and Gongwen Dong) and Jim Biden.

  • 10 December. The New York Times reports Ukraine Court Rules Manafort Disclosure Caused 'Meddling' in U.S. Election. [111] National Anti-Corruption Bureau Director Artem Sytnyk and legislator Serhiy Leshchenko broke the law by revealing Manafort's name. The court said that the disclosure
“led to interference in the electoral processes of the United States in 2016 and harmed the interests of Ukraine as a state.” [112]
"When it comes to his work in Ukraine, Manafort, as former Fusion GPS researcher Graham Stack writes, was convicted for ‘doing the opposite of colluding with Russia.’ In Ukraine, Manafort pushed a pro-Western agenda … Internal documents released by Mueller make clear that Manafort tried to steer his client, then – Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych, to align with the European Union and away from Russia, or, in Manafort’s own words, promote ‘the key geopolitical messaging of how “Europe and the U.S. should not risk losing Ukraine to Russia.”‘[113]

2019

January 2019

3 January. Hunter Biden texts his sister Naomi Biden:

“But I don’t receive any respect and that’s fine I guess. Works for you, apparently. I hope you all can do what I did and pay for everything for this entire family for 30 years. It’s really hard, but don’t worry, unlike Pop (Joe Biden) I won’t make you give me half your salary.”[114]

  • 9 March. Three weeks in advance of Ukraine's March 31, 2019 presidential election, U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine in Kiev Marie Yovanovitch called for Ukraine's special anti corruption prosecutor to be removed.[115] Yovanovitvh's comments were regarded in Ukrainian media as a violation of international diplomatic convention and protocols of the duty of foreign diplomats to refrain from interfering in a host country's internal affairs, particularly in advance of an election.
  • the U.S. embassy in Kiev had earlier pressured the Ukraine prosecutors in 2016 to drop or avoid pursuing several cases, including one involving the Soros-backed AntiCorruption Action Centre (AntAc) and two cases involving Ukraine officials who criticized Donald Trump and his campaign manager Paul Manafort.
  • Kiev embassy official George Kent wrote a letter proving Yovanovitch's meddling in Ukrainian internal affairs did indeed happen.[116] State Department officials authenticated the letter. George Kent acknowledged in this Congressional testimony he signed that letter.
  • 25 March. Patrick Ho, Biden’s former legal client, is sentenced to three years in prison for international bribery and money-laundering offenses.

April 2019

  • 1 April. Writing in The Hill, John Solomon quotes Ukrainian former prosecutor general Viktor Shokin, telling him that, before he was dismissed, he was leading a wide-ranging corruption probe into Burisma Holdings, and that his plans included “interrogations and other crime-investigation procedures into all members of the executive board, including Hunter Biden.”[117]
  • 25 April. How the Obama White House engaged Ukraine to give Russia collusion narrative an early boost, by John Solomon.[118]
  • In January 2016 the Obama White House summoned Ukrainian authorities to Washington. The meeting brought some of Ukraine’s top corruption prosecutors and investigators face to face with Eric Ciaramella[119] and members of former President Obama’s National Security Council (NSC), FBI, State Department and Department of Justice (DOJ). Ukrainian participants said it didn’t take long to realize the Americans’ objectives included two politically hot investigations: one involving Vice President Joe Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, and one involving Paul Manafort's lobbying firm, linked closely to then-candidate Trump.
  • U.S. officials “kept talking about how important it was that all of our anti-corruption efforts be united,” said Andrii (Andriy, per White House visitor logs) Telizhenko, then a political officer in the Ukrainian Embassy in Washington tasked with organizing the meeting.
  • Telizhenko said U.S. officials said that they had an interest in reviving a closed 2014 investigation into payments to U.S. figures from Ukraine’s Russia-backed Party of Regions. That 2014 investigation was focused on Manafort. The FBI closed the case without charging Manafort.
  • DOJ officials asking investigators from Ukraine’s National Anti-Corruption Bureau (NABU) if they could help find new evidence about the Party of Regions’ payments and its dealings with Americans. “It was definitely the case that led to the charges against Manafort and the leak to U.S. media during the 2016 election,” Telizhenko said.
  • Nazar Kholodnytskyy, Ukraine’s chief anti-corruption prosecutor, said he soon saw evidence in Ukraine of political meddling in the U.S. election. Kholodnytskyy said the key evidence against Manafort — a ledger showing payments from the Party of Regions — was known to Ukrainian authorities since 2014 but was suddenly released in May 2016 by the NABU, after Manafort was named Trump’s campaign chairman: “Somebody kept this black ledger secret for two years and then showed it to the public and the U.S. media. It was extremely suspicious.” Kholodnytskyy said he explicitly instructed NABU investigators who were working with American authorities not to share the ledger with the media. “I ordered the detectives to give nothing to the mass media considering this case. Instead, they had broken my order and published themselves these one or two pages of this black ledger regarding Paul Manafort. For me it was the first call that something was going wrong and that there is some external influence in this case. And there is some other interests in this case not in the interest of the investigation and a fair trial.”
  • Kostiantyn Kulyk, deputy head of the Ukraine prosecutor general’s international affairs office, said that, shortly after Ukrainian authorities returned from the Washington meeting, there was a clear message about helping the Americans with the Party of the Regions case. “Yes, there was a lot of talking about needing help and then the ledger just appeared in public.” Kulyk said Ukrainian authorities had evidence that other Western figures, such as former Obama White House counsel Gregory Craig, also received money from Yanukovych’s party. But the Americans weren’t interested: “They just discussed Manafort. This was all and only what they wanted. Nobody else.”
  • Manafort joined Trump’s campaign on March 29, 2016, and then was promoted to campaign chairman on May 19, 2016. NABU leaked the existence of the ledgers on May 29, 2016. Later that summer, it told U.S. media the ledgers showed payments to Manafort, a revelation that forced him to resign from the Trump campaign in August 2016.
  • A Ukrainian court in December concluded NABU’s release of the ledger was an illegal attempt to influence the U.S. election. And a member of Ukraine’s parliament has released a recording of a NABU official saying the agency released the ledger to help Hillary Clinton.
  • The other case raised at the January 2016 meeting involved Burisma Holdings, a Ukrainian energy company under investigation in Ukraine for improper foreign transfers of money. At the time, Burisma allegedly was paying then-Vice President Joe Biden’s son Hunter as both a board member and a consultant. More than $3 million flowed from Ukraine to Rosemont Seneca, Hunter Biden and Devon Archer's firm in 2014-15, bank records show.
  • U.S. officials told the Ukrainians they would prefer that Kiev drop the Burisma probe and allow the FBI to take it over. The Ukrainians did not agree. But then Joe Biden pressured Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko to fire Victor Shokin, Ukraine’s chief prosecutor in March 2016. The Burisma case was transferred to NABU, then shut down.
  • The Ukrainian Embassy in Washington confirmed that the Obama administration requested the meetings in January 2016, but embassy representatives attended only some of the sessions. "Unfortunately, the Embassy of Ukraine in Washington, D.C., was not invited to join the DOJ and other law enforcement-sector meetings."
  • Telizhenko’s claim that the DOJ reopened its Manafort probe as the 2016 election ramped up is supported by the DOJ’s own documents, including communications involving Associate Attorney General Bruce Ohr, his wife, Nellie Ohr, and ex-British spy Christopher Steele. Nellie Ohr and Steele worked in 2016 for Fusion GPS, that was hired by Clinton’s campaign and DNC to find dirt on Trump. Steele wrote the famous dossier for Fusion that the FBI used to gain a warrant to spy on the Trump campaign. Nellie Ohr admitted to Congress that she routed Russia dirt on Trump from Fusion to the DOJ through her husband Bruce during the election.
  • DOJ emails show Nellie Ohr on May 30, 2016, directly alerted her husband Bruce and two DOJ prosecutors to the discovery of the “Black Ledger” files that led to Manafort’s prosecution. “Reported Trove of documents on Ukrainian Party of Regions’ Black Cashbox,” Nellie Ohr wrote to her husband and federal prosecutors Lisa Holtyn and Joseph Wheatley, attaching a news article on the announcement of NABU’s release of the documents.
  • Bruce Ohr and Steele worked on their own effort to get dirt on Manafort from a Russian oligarch, Oleg Deripaska, who had a soured business relationship with Manafort. Deripaska was “almost ready to talk” to U.S. government officials regarding the money that “Manafort stole,” Bruce Ohr wrote in notes from his conversations with Steele.
  • The efforts eventually led to a September 2016 meeting in which Andrew McCabe asked Deripaska if he could help prove Manafort was helping Trump collude with Russia. Deripaska laughed off the notion as preposterous.
  • Politico reported that the Ukrainian Embassy in Washington assisted Clinton’s campaign through Alexandra Chalupa, a DNC contractor.[120] The Ukrainian Embassy acknowledges it got requests for assistance from Chalupa to find dirt on Manafort.

He added Solomon’s phone call history in a spreadsheet he compiled in the footnotes section of the report, which claimed Solomon reported “conspiracy theories” in The Hill to help President Trump “push false narratives” about Ukrainian interference in the 2016 election in favor of Hillary Clinton, as well as Biden’s attempts as vice president beginning late 2015 to fire a Ukrainian prosecutor investigating a gas industry oligarch whose company paid his son millions of dollars.

  85. "Obama administration officials sought to suppress a Ukrainian corruption probe into an NGO bankrolled by both the US government and George Soros. When Ukraine’s Prosecutor General’s Office tried to investigate an alleged misallocation of $4.4 million in US funds, which was supposed to go toward anti-corruption initiatives, US embassy officials came down hard to shut down the investigation altogether. “We ran right into a buzzsaw and we got bloodied,” a senior Ukrainian official told The Hill. Notably, former State Department official George Kent, a star witnesses in Adam Schiff's hearings, recommended in April 2016 that Ukraine stop investigating a Soros-funded entity in Ukraine, AntAC. "The investigation into the Anti-Corruption Action Center (sic), based on the assistance they have received from us, is similarly misplaced," wrote Kent."
