EXCLUSIVE: Hunter Biden's Most Treasonous Text Message
Hunter Biden collected millions from Chinese officials, worked with the "spy chief of China," attempted to broker a $9 billion deal for Vladimir Putin, and the FBI covered up his family's crimes.
“You’re right Hallie and I find myself… very alone in dealing with rebuilding an income that can support an enormous alimony and my kids costs and myself, dealing with the aftermath of the abduction and likely assassination (that’s what NYT’s suspects) of my business partner the richest man in the world, the arrest and conviction of my client the chief of intelligence of the people’s republic of China by the US government, the retaliation of the Chinese in the ouster and arrest of US suspected CIA operatives inside China, my suspected involvement in brokering a deal with Vladimir Putin directly for the largest sale of oil gas assets inside Russia to China, a tax bill that Eric left hanging over my business and… And Dads running for president.”
Hunter Biden sent these text messages to his brother’s widow Hallie Biden on December 14, 2018, at 10:31 AM, according to text messages found on Hunter Biden’s abandoned laptop.

Founded in 2002, CEFC China Energy Company Limited (CEFC China) was the largest private oil and gas company in China when Hunter Biden began doing business with them in 2017.
As Hunter explained to his business partner Tony Bobulinski in text messages, he spoke with the Chairman of CEFC China Ye Jianming on a “regular basis” because they had “a standing once a week call as I am also his personal counsel (we signed an attorney client engagement letter) in the U.S.”
Hunter also said he was advising CEFC’s Chairman “on a number of his personal issues (staff visas and some more sensitive things).”
CEFC was part of China's Belt and Road Initiative, a global infrastructure development strategy adopted by the Chinese government in 2013 to invest in nearly 70 countries and international organizations considered a centerpiece of Chinese leader Xi Jinping’s foreign policy.
In 2017, CEFC ranked 34th on the Fortune Global 500 Energy List with a business revenue of approx. $41.8 billion and a workforce of nearly 50,000. The company developed an international presence in Russia, Central Asia, Central, and East Europe, the Middle East, and Africa.
While Chinese state-owned businesses confer prestige in China — the optics of Chinese government-backed giants marching into foreign countries to buy and extract oil and resources weren't so great overseas.
This paved the way for private, under-the-radar firms like CEFC to secure energy and infrastructure investments overseas for President Xi Jinping's Belt and Road Initiative.
In 2017, CEFC emerged from obscurity to a major player in China's global ambitions when it announced its most high-profile investment yet.
The Chinese energy conglomerate obtained a historic 14% stake in Russian state-owned energy giant Rosneft for $9 billion, and President Joe Biden’s son would play a direct role in that acquisition.
Ye Jianming, CEFC's founder would say the Rosneft purchase was “mainly driven by China's Belt and Road Initiative,” according to Reuters.
Rosneft CEO Igor Sechin, a close ally of President Vladimir Putin, was keen to attract foreign investments to relieve the pressure of U.S. sanctions.
According to text messages obtained by Biden's former business partner, Tony Bobulinksi, Hunter Biden acted as a "personal attorney" for Chairman Ye Jianming in the deal to buy 14% of the Russian-state oil company facing western sanctions.
Hunter refers to his role in representing the Chinese CEO in his text message to Hallie, where he says, “my suspected involvement in brokering a deal with Vladimir Putin directly for the largest sale of oil gas assets inside Russia to China.”
Ye’s empire began to crumble on November 18, 2017.
On that day, FBI agents would arrest CEFC’s Patrick Ho for international bribery and money laundering charges.
According to the Justice Department, Patrick Ho flew to New York in the fall of 2014 with the intention of offering $3 million in bribes to Afn officials on behalf of CEFC.
In meetings at the United Nations, Mr. Ho laid the groundwork for millions of dollars of payments to the president of Chad and Uganda's foreign minister in exchange for oil rights in the two countries, federal prosecutors said.
In an audio recording extracted from the voice notes of Hunter’s abandoned laptop, Hunter claimed to represent “Dr. Patrick Ho,” who he referred to as the “spy chief of China.”
This is the same Dr. Patrick Ho, which Hunter referred to in text messages with Hallie Biden as “my client the chief of intelligence of the people’s republic of China.”
Hunter would be paid $1 million to represent Patrick Ho despite having no previous experience as a criminal defense attorney.
In another message found on Hunter’s laptop, New York Times reporter Matthew Goldstein contacted Hunter on May 16, 2018, asking why Patrick Ho’s first call after his arrest was made to Hunter’s uncle, James Biden.
CEFC China Energy would begin to fall apart less than half a year after Tony Bobulinski incorporated SinoHawk Holdings LLC in May 2017 after deciding against Hunter’s suggestion to call it CEFC America.
It would be a global investment firm seeded with $10 million of Chinese money that would buy projects in the US and around the world “in global and/or domestic infrastructure, energy, financial services, and other strategic sectors,” said the contract he had drawn up.
SinoHawk would be 50 percent owned by Ye Jianming, chairman of CEFC, through a Delaware-incorporated CEFC entity, Hudson West IV LLC.
Oneida Holdings LLC would own the other 50 percent, another Delaware firm set up by Bobulinski.
Oneida would be split up according to an infamous email sent on May 13, 2017, so that Joe Biden would get 10% of the CEFC China Energy deal, while Hunter Biden would get 20%, and Jim Biden would get 10%.
"10% held by H for the big guy?"
In early 2017, Ye Jianming's State Energy HK sent $6 million to Hunter's business partner Rob Walker.
In June 2017, Hunter emailed the CEFC Chairman demanding $10 million more.
In August 2017, Hunter's company Hudson West received $5 million from CEFC.
In an August 2017 email, Hunter Biden wrote that Ye Jianming had agreed to a "rate of $10M per year for a three-year guarantee total of $30M" for "introductions alone.”
In other words, leveraging his father's position in Washington DC and selling access to the US government to get rich from China.
Hunter Biden called his father, Joe Biden, and his Chinese business partners “office mates” in a September 2017 email:
“Please have keys made available for new office mates,” Before listing Joe Biden, his stepmother Jill Biden, his uncle Jim Biden, and the Chinese executive Gongwen Dong.
Hunter Biden referred to Ye, the chairman of CEFC, as “my partner” and described Gongwen Dong as the “Chairman Ye CEFC emissary,” according to the Washington Post.
In total, the Biden family made more than $30 million from entities affiliated with China's Communist government.
After Patrick Ho was arrested at the end of 2017, Ye Jianming would go missing in early 2018 when the Chinese government detained him for “suspected economic crimes.”
A state-owned enterprise took control of CEFC in March 2019, and according to Chinese media Caixin, the firm declared bankruptcy by early 2020.
China’s retaliation against CIA operatives in response to the arrest of Hunter Biden’s client Patrick Ho was never reported by the corporate media. However, it is unlikely that the U.S. government would have disclosed the arrest of foreign informants.
And, while the corporate media, law enforcement, and legacy tech platforms may continue to cover up the smoking gun evidence found on Hunter Biden’s laptop, the American people already know the facts — Hunter Biden and Joe Biden were personally profiting from China’s Belt and Road Initiative — and they were getting rich with the “spy chief of China.”
This single text message found on Hunter’s laptop raises many important national security concerns for the United States.
Why was Hunter Biden helping Vladimir Putin sell oil & gas to China?
Why was Hunter Biden working with ‘the chief of intelligence of the people’s republic of China’?
Why was Hunter Biden’s business partner with ‘the richest man in the world’ who was building China’s Belt and Road Initiative?
Did China arrest CIA operatives in retaliation for the DOJ arresting Hunter's business partner?
