Details continue to drip from a trove of emails supplied to the media from a MacBook Pro laptop that presidential candidate Joe Biden’s son Hunter allegedly dropped off at a computer repair shop in Delaware in April 2019 and then abandoned.
The former vice president’s son sent an email on Aug. 2, 2017 to Gongwen Dong, an associate of Ye Jianming, founder of Shanghai-based CEFC China Energy about a deal they negotiated. The alleged deal included $10 million per year for three years for “consulting fees based on introductions alone.”
The New York Post broke the bombshell story Wednesday after receiving the emails that the shop owner copied and shared with former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani.
“My Understanding is that the original agreement with the Director was for consulting fees based on introductions alone a rate of $10M per year for a three year guarantee total of $30M,” Biden wrote.
“The chairman changed that deal after we me [sic] in MIAMI TO A MUCH MORE LASTING AND LUCRATIVE ARRANGEMENT to create a holding company 50% owned by ME and 50% owned by him,” Biden explained.
“Consulting fees is one piece of our income stream but the reason this proposal by the chairman was so much more interesting to me and my family is that we would also be partners inn [sic] the equity and profits of the JV’s investments. Hence I assumed the reason for our discussion today in which you made clear that the Chaireman [sic] would first get his investment capital returned in the profits would then be split 50/50. If you saying that is not the case then please return us to the original deal 10M per year a guaranteed 3 years plus bonus payments for any successful deal we introduce. Let’s discuss thank you.”
The New York Post exposed another intriguing email Thursday from international consultant James Gilliar dated May 2017. He outlined the manner in which CEFC would divide payments for an unnamed company for which Hunter would be “Chair/Vice Chair.”
Biden was to be paid a mysterious amount of “850” and “Hunter has some office expectations he will elaborate,” according to the email.
It also outlined a “provisional agreement” under which 80 percent of the “equity,” or shares in the new company, would be split equally among four people whose initials correspond to the sender and three recipients, with “H” apparently referring to Biden,” the Post reported.
The email says Hunter will receive a 20% equity, plus a 10% stake “held by H for the big guy?”
The email does not identify the “big guy.”
The hard drive also allegedly contained a video showing Hunter smoking from a pipe associated with crack use while having sex with an unidentified female prostitute. The laptop also contained dozens of other sexually explicit images.
Both Twitter and Facebook are under fire after they rushed Wednesday to restrict the sharing of documents and links related to the report in an unprecedented effort to censure news that could potentially damage the Biden campaign.
Surrogates for the Biden campaign have dismissed the shocking details of influence peddling exposed in the emails as “Russian disinformation” obtained through “hacking.”
