Hunter Biden’s laptop continues to haunt him as leaked emails show that the President’s son allegedly solicited secretarial services from a former researcher for the Chinese government.
This allegation surfaced in Peter Schweizer’s recently released book “Red Handed,” reports Fox News.
According to Schweizer, Hunter Biden’s secretary, JiaQi Bao, was employed by the Chinese government’s National Development and Reform Commission as a research assistant.
After her tenure with the Commission, Bao went on to work for the Shanghai-based investment firm OpenGate Capital. OpenGate has known ties to the Chinese Communist Party (CCP).
Bao became involved with Hunter Biden shortly after he started conducting business with Patrick Ho, the secretary-general of CEFC – a Chinese energy conglomerate. Biden once described Ho as the “spy chief of China.”
Ho formerly served as a home affairs secretary in Hong Kong and was arrested by the FBI in November 2017 on bribery charges. Schweizer explains in his book that Ho attempted to launder money through a “network of middlemen, millionaires, and suspected spies” to make “illicit payments to UN diplomats.”
In 2019, Patrick Ho was sentenced to three years in prison while his former associate, JiaQi Bao, remained in Hunter Biden’s employ.
Bao provided Biden advice on everything from “energy deals to his father’s presidential campaign,” noted Schweizer, before Biden terminated those services in 2018 when Biden stopped conducting business with the CEFC.
Notably, Biden served as a member on the board of the Ukrainian natural gas company Burisma where he received more than $80,000, per the New York Post, in monthly compensation. It is believed that Hunter Biden was awarded this position on Burisma’s board solely for the sake of his connections to then-Vice President Joe Biden.
Hunter Biden’s business dealings and personal affairs were a source of such intense scrutiny during the 2020 presidential election that Twitter and Facebook prevented users from sharing articles that detailed the contents of his recovered laptop’s hard drive that could implicate his father.
In Miranda Devine’s recent book, titled “Laptop from Hell,” she speculates that Joe Biden, himself, benefited directly from his son’s shady business dealings. It is believed that “the big guy” receiving 10% of Hunter’s income from these dealings was his father, Joe Biden.
After his father became President of the United States, Hunter began a career as a professional painter. Each of his works sell for several thousand dollars apiece. His debut art show was held at the prestigious Georges Bergès Gallery in New York City.
