The latest alleged Hunter Biden text messages to be published appear to reveal just how stunningly corrupt his closest business partners and allies were.
On Dec. 14th, 2018, four months before his father declared his candidacy for president, Hunter allegedly sent a text to his sister-in-law, Hallie Biden, documenting all the frustration and trepidation he was feeling over his life circumstances.
“I find myself (because I’ve chosen to alienate all my friends and family and employees and you and the kids and my kids etc..) very alone in dealing with rebuilding an income that can support an enormous alimony and my kids costs and myself,” he wrote.
Apparently, he’d run out of money and needed to “rebuild” his income but was feeling alone because he’d alienated everybody with his drug habit.
Here’s the important part. He continued the text by writing about “dealing with” the following:
- “the aftermath of the abduction and likely assassination (that’s what NYT’s suspects) of my business partner the richest man in the world,”
- “the arrest and conviction of my client the chief of intelligence of the people’s republic of China by the US government,”
- “the retaliation of the Chinese in the ouster and arrest of US suspected CIA operatives inside China,”
- “my suspected involvement in brokering a deal with Vladimir Putin directly for the largest sale of oil gas assets inside Russia to China, a tax bill that Eric left hanging over my business…”
- “and Dads running for president.”
This revealing text message was published by the Daily Mail on Tuesday.
The text message referenced a couple different events, including the so-called “abduction and likely assassination” of his business partner Ye Jianming.
Jianming was the chairman of the Chinese oil giant CEFC, and at the time of the text, he’d been behind bars in Chinese prison since March of that year.
“The chairman of China’s CEFC China Energy, the private firm that has agreed to buy a nearly $9.1 billion stake in Russian oil major Rosneft, has been investigated for suspected economic crimes, a person with direct knowledge of the matter said,” Reuters reported at the time of his “abduction.”
“Ye Jianming, who founded the company in 2002, was taken in for questioning this year, the person said without saying which authorities were involved or whether the probe was continuing. The person declined to be identified because of the sensitivity of the matter.”
Jianming is relevant to Hunter because he was partnered with CEFC. Furthermore, te evidence suggests he was involved in the deal to buy a stake in Rosneft.
FYI, the deal never went through, thanks, it would appear, to Donald Trump winning the 2016 presidential election:
China was going to take over Rosneft in 2017 – see Biden family joint venture with CEFC, the capitalist arm of Xi’s belt & road. Deal collapsed post Trump and Hunter’s partners met a sticky end: Patrick Ho arrested at JFK and then Chairman Ye disappeared in China #LaptopFromHell https://t.co/erRNaqYtyp

In the text to Hallie, Hunter also referenced “the arrest and conviction of my client the chief of intelligence of the people’s republic of China by the US government.”
According to the Daily Mail, the chief of intelligence “was Ye’s right-hand-man Patrick Ho, who hired Hunter as his lawyer for a $1million retainer in September 2017 when he was arrested over bribery charges. He was convicted the following year.”
“Court records reveal there was a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrant against Ho showing federal law enforcement suspected he had links to the Chinese intelligence services, though he was not charged with any espionage offenses.”
Most notably, Hunter mentioned his “suspected involvement in brokering a deal with Vladimir Putin directly for the largest sale of oil gas assets inside Russia to China.”
He didn’t outright admit to being involved in the deal, but previously revealed text messages suggest he was indeed involved.
“In August 2017, Reuters reported that CEFC was in talks to buy a $9.1billion slice of Rosneft from a consortium including the Qatari sovereign wealth fund and Swiss mining company Glencore. The same month, CEFC wired $5million to Hudson West III, a company linked to Hunter,” according to the Daily Mail.
“And on September 8, the day CEFC officially announced the Rosneft deal, Hunter and his uncle Jim – who was involved in Hunter’s Chinese dealings – went on a $100,000 spree buying airline tickets, Apple products, and hotel rooms using credit cards set up from a joint account with their Chinese business partners.”

The deal ultimately fell apart when Ye was arrested. That same month, “the credit cards used for the Bidens’ spree were closed,” the Daily Mail notes.
The evidence certainly suggests Hunter was involved in the deal. Yet even in text messages to his infamous associate, Tony Bobulinski, he feigned innocence.
“I’ve simply stayed out of that Russian mess,” he claimed in the texts.
He did, however, admit in the texts to talking to Ye about the deal.
“He and I discussed the Roseneft deal and he is p***ed off but only by the execution which I guess was Zhang’s deal,” he wrote.
It’s not clear who “Zhang” is.
