Hunter Biden Claimed Father In Room When Demanding Chinese Payment

According to an IRS whistleblower, Hunter Biden indicated that his father was in the room when demanding payment from a Chinese businessman. The allegation could further complicate the investigation into a number of payments the Biden family received from foreign sources.

The informant revealed this week that Henry Zhao, a prominent Chinese businessman received a text message from Hunter Biden which reportedly attempts to coerce funds.

The message was directed from the whistleblower to the House Ways and Means Committee. 

“And, Z, if I get a call or text from anyone involved in this other than you, Zhang, or the chairman, I will 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,” the alleged message reads. “I am sitting here waiting for the call with my father.”

The purported message was allegedly sent in July 2017. 

The future president’s son allegedly said that he was “sitting here with my father and we would like to understand why the commitment made has not been fulfilled.” 

He demanded that an unnamed issue be resolved immediately “before it gets out of hand, and now means tonight.”

The federal government discovered that Zhao paid $100,000 to the company Owasco P.C., owned by Hunter Biden. 

Zhao played a significant role in creating a business deal between a Chinese company and the company Burnham, owned by Hunter Biden’s business partner Devon Archer. Zhao is also a prominent official of the Chinese Communist Party and a key player in a major Chinese fund management firm.

The alleged text message also comes as Hunter Biden received further scrutiny for his family’s other dealings with China. The younger Biden and the president’s brother James received $4.8 million from a Chinese energy firm, CEFC Energy. 

The payments took place in 2017 and 2018. The payments were revealed in Hunter Biden’s laptop, which includes an email that would allegedly grant a 10% share “for the big guy.”
