Emails show that President-elect Joe Biden’s son Hunter Biden asked $10M for startup funds from CEFC China Energy. In 2017, he sent CEFC chairman Ye Jianming “’best wishes from the entire Biden family.” These emails are part of a trove released by former Biden associate Tony Bobulinski.

Tony Bobulinski, who describes himself as a former partner of Hunter Biden, also said Joe Biden and Joe’s brother Jim also took part in their China dealings. He came out with his revelations in an interview with Fox News host Tucker Carlson earlier this October. In fact, Bubolinski supplied a trove of emails detailing Hunter Biden’s correspondence with the CEFC chairman.
June 2017 Emails
Fox News got a copy of the email Hunter Biden sent on June 18, 2017, to Zhao Runlong of CEFC. At the time, Hunter Biden said he looked forward to introducing Ye to his partner, Tony Bobulinski. The latter would act as the CEO of the planned joint venture with CEFC. In the email, Biden updated Yi that they completed the creation of SinoHawk Holdings and that Bobulinski sent a request to Gongwen Dong and Director Zang for funding of a $10 million wire. Biden wrote: “I would appreciate if you will send that quickly so we can properly fund and operate Sinohawk.”
Ye sent a reply to Biden on July 10, 2017. An email from Biden business associate James Gilliar to Bobulinski included a forwarded version of the reply. The CEFC chairman wrote that he made arrangements for Zang and Dong to “expedite the charter capital input to SinoHawk.”
Hunter Biden, his brother Jim, Bobulinski, and several others are the known operators for SinoHawk, a limited liability company. Specifically, they partnered with CEFC for “global and/or domestic” projects involving “infrastructure, energy, financial services, and other strategic sectors.”
Despite the emails and follow-ups, Bobulinski said that the money never arrived. Also, he alleged that Hunter Biden privately made a deal with Ye that cut Bobulinski and the company from the business. Consequently, the owners dissolved SinoHawk by October 2018.
People’s Liberation Army Links
According to a Senate Homeland Security Committee and Senate Finance Committee report last September, Ye Jianming, Gongwen Dong, and other Chinese nationals that have links with Hunter Biden in SinoHawk raised some flags. In fact, these men’s connections with the Chinese Communist government and the People’s Liberation Army are well-known. The report said that “Those associations resulted in millions of dollars in questionable transactions/cash flow.”
CEFC ran into trouble in late 2017 when the US Justice Department accused it of bribing the President of Chad for oil rights. Chinese authorities arrested Ye and placed him under investigation in March 2018 on suspicion of economic crimes. Allegedly, Chinese Communist Party general secretary Xi Jinping called for his investigation. Also, officials determined in 2018 that the former Communist Party Secretary of Gansu received bribes from Ye back in 2011. Beset with troubles, CEFC declared bankruptcy in March of 2020 amid allegations of shell companies and fraudulent activities.
Joe Confident Hunter ‘Did Nothing Wrong”
In a Fox News Interview Wednesday, Joe Biden replied to reporter Peter Doocy’s question “Are you confident your son Hunter did nothing wrong?” with “I’m confident.” Prior to this reply, Biden and his transition team said the father remains “proud” of his son. At the same time, Biden himself is not the subject of an investigation regarding Hunter’s case. While it’s clear that Hunter Biden asked $10M from CEFC, the elder Biden does not have direct links implicating him to SInohawk or any other overseas ventures.
A Lot of Explaining to Do
Meanwhile, President Donald Trump is considering appointing a special prosecutor to look into Hunter Biden’s business dealings abroad. This ensures that even as the elder Biden takes his oath as President in January, the investigation will continue. House Republicans, who already started with their own investigation, plan to resume their probe. Senator Chuck Grassley of Iowa said that “Based on all the facts known to date, Joe Biden has a lot of explaining to do. I learned a lesson long ago when I first started my oversight focus and that is: no matter how difficult the media or the other side of the aisle makes it to find the facts – never give up, keep working hard. The American taxpayer deserves nothing less.”
