Biden-Linked Accounts Allegedly Received $5.1 Million After Hunter Texts

Bank accounts linked to the Biden family allegedly received more than $5 million after Hunter Biden texted a Chinese businessman demanding a “commitment.” The revelations come as an IRS whistleblower revealed the text messages the president’s son allegedly sent to a well-connected Chinese businessman.

The younger Biden was communicating with businessman Henry Zhao, who is also a Chinese Communist Party official. 

Zhao played a role in CEFC Energy, which also allegedly did business with the Biden family. According to a 2017 message, Hunter Biden wrote to Zhao, “I am sitting here with my father and we would like to understand why the commitment made has not been fulfilled. Tell the director that I would like to resolve this now before it gets out of hand, and now means tonight.”

He said that if he received messages from anyone other than Zhao or “the chairman,” he would “make certain that between the man sitting next to me and every person he knows and my ability to forever hold a grudge that you will regret not following my direction. I am sitting here waiting for the call with my father.”

The timing of Hunter Biden’s messages lines up with $5.1 million in payments from CEFC Energy to bank accounts linked to him, according to a Republican Senate report.

The payments were received within 10 days of Hunter Biden’s message. Over approximately the next year, a company owned by the president’s son received nearly $4.8 million in consulting fees from one of the recipients.

According to the testimony of the IRS whistleblower, U.S. Attorney David Weiss, who led the investigation into Hunter Biden, was pressured by other federal officials. This includes reports that Assistant U.S. Attorney Lesley Wolf stopped Weiss from investigating an email from Hunter Biden’s laptop that said that there was “Ten held by H for the big guy.”

Furthermore, the Biden family received a number of other payments from foreign sources, including $1.3 million linked to CEFC. 

House Oversight Committee Chair Rep. James Comer (R-KY) said that the Biden family received at least $10 million from foreign business deals.
