A former head of a massive Chinese energy conglomerate once offered Hunter Biden a 3-carat gem and $30 million to help secure a business deal in the United States, according to an excerpt from an upcoming book from New York Post columnist Miranda Divine.
According to the excerpt, which was published Sunday, Ye Jianming, the former chairman of CEFC China Energy, made the offer as the deal was being put together in 2017, though it eventually fell through.
Details of the deal were gleaned from emails contained in a laptop computer that Hunter Biden reportedly abandoned at a Delaware repair shop in 2019; Divine’s book is titled, “Laptop From Hell.”
“Chairman Ye had built his provincial energy company into a Fortune 500 colossus virtually overnight, an achievement described by Chinese news agency Caixin as ‘another great enigma in the miraculous world of Chinese business,'” Divine writes.
“He enjoyed the support of President Xi and was former deputy secretary general of the government’s propaganda arm, the China Association for International Friendly Contacts,” she added.
The genesis of the business deal dates back to the winter of 2015, when Ye and CEFC Executive Director Jianjun Zang flew to Washington, D.C. According to Divine, there was a meeting scheduled with Ye listed in Hunter Biden’s diary for Dec. 7 “in a week that was a swirl of back-to-back Christmas parties hosted by Joe and Jill at the vice president’s residence at the Naval Observatory.”
She went on to write that there is no indication that Ye and Hunter actually met, but “one of his former associates, who spoke on condition of anonymity, believes that Hunter brought Chairman Ye to meet Joe [Biden] at one of those parties.”
The two allegedly met again in 2017 at the International Boat Show in Miami, where Hunter is believed to have gotten the massive gem that was encased in a ring, worth an estimated $80,000 at the time. Emails from the laptop also noted that Ye and Hunter were engaged in a deal to transfer a Louisiana-based natural gas company to CEFC.
Following that meeting, several multimillion-dollar wire transfers were sent from Ye’s company to Robinson Walker LLC, a firm that is closely linked with the Biden family.
“These transactions are a direct link between Walker and the communist Chinese government and, because of his close association with Hunter Biden, yet another tie between Hunter Biden’s financial arrangements and the communist Chinese government,” says a joint report by Sens. Charles Grassley (R-Iowa) and Ron Johnson (R-Wis.), dated Nov. 18, 2020.
Their report went on to conclude that it is “unclear what the true purpose is behind these transactions [$6 million from CEFC] and who the ultimate beneficiary is.”
According to documents found on the laptop, Hunter Biden received regular payments from Robinson Walker, each amounting to tens of thousands of dollars.
Eventually, the Biden family brought in former U.S. Navy nuclear instructor Tony Bobulinksi to help finalize the deal, which did not happen. Joe Biden was implicated as being the recipient of 10 percent of the proceeds from the deal.
