For any political leader in a democratic country, any links or association with the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) is like a death knell. The Democrats are repeatedly finding themselves on the wrong side when it comes to China, as after Kamala Harris’ alleged CCP links, a US Senate report has revealed that US Presidential candidate Joe Biden’s son, Hunter Biden has links with Chinese and Ukrainian firms.
In an explosive revelation, a US Senate Committee has alleged that Hunter Biden was paid $50,000 a month to serve at the board of Burisma — a Ukrainian natural gas company when his father, Joe Biden was the US Vice President during the Obama administration.
According to the US Senate report, the Treasury records accessed by Chairman Grassley and Chairman Johnson showed Biden Jr and his family including his associates were involved in “potential criminal activity relating to transactions with Ukrainian, Russian, Kazakh and Chinese nationals.”
The report further alleged that the Biden family was involved in a “vast financial network that connected them to foreign nationals and foreign governments across the globe”.
It further added, “Rosemont Seneca Thornton, an investment firm co-founded by Hunter Biden received $3.5 million in wire transfer from Elena Baturina who allegedly received illegal construction contracts from her husband, the former mayor of Moscow.”
The report stated, “In particular these documents show that Hunter Biden received millions of dollars from foreign sources as a result of business relationships that he built during the period when his father was the vice-president of US.”
In a finding which threatens to completely derail the Biden campaign, the report concluded that Biden and businessman Archer were found as “willing partners in Chinese nationals connected to the Communist regime”, adding that “their work began in China in 2009 with the creation of Rosemont Seneca Partners with Heinz, the stepson of the then secretary of state John Kerry.”
The report claimed, “Hunter Biden’s connections and financial associations appear to have accelerated significantly after he associated himself with Ye Jianming who had deep connections with the Communist regime and PLA.”
Ye Jianming is the founder of CEFC China Energy Co. Ltd (CEFC) and chairman of the board for its subsidiary, the China Energy Fund Committee (CE Fund) and is known to have strong connections with the Chinese government.
“Ye’s connections to the Communist government are extensive and, as explained below, he has been previous affiliations with the People’s Liberation Army. Based on the information received by the Committees, Ye was also financially connected to Vic President Biden’s brother, James Biden. Thus, there exists a vast web of corporate connections and financial transactions between and among the Biden family and Chinese nationals,” claimed the report.
The burning question is that why Hunter Biden was handed millions of dollars from foreign sources in China. Biden Jr is yet to give an explanation on the matter.
The troubles seem to be mounting as the latest development came close on the heels of the fact that Vice Presidential nominee Kamala Harris’ husband, Douglas Emhoff was found to have a partnership with a company representing organizations of the CCP throwing the Democrat campaign into a disarray.
It has been alleged that Emhoff is a partner in the investment services firm DLA Piper, which has represented the CCP affiliated companies in the United States and Europe for nearly 30 years, thus raising the concerns of a conflict of interest.
It is no secret that Xi Jinping is praying everyday to ensure a Biden Presidency since Donald Trump appears to be in no mood to let China off the hook after the Wuhan coronavirus pandemic. A re-elected Trump with no elections to face, will only increase the pressure on China and ensure that the nation is diplomatically and economically isolated.
