ExclusiveThe list of “key local contacts” for a joint venture involving Jim and Hunter Biden and the now bankrupt CEFC China Energy included former vice president Joe BidenFox News, the current candidate to run for election, has identified Senator Kamala Harris, among other notable Democrats.
An email exclusively obtained by Fox News, with the subject line “Phase 1 Domestic Communications / Projects” on May 15, 2017, Biden’s brother, Jim Biden, shared a list of “Key Local Contacts for Targeted First Phase Projects”.
The email has nothing to do with the laptop or hard drive allegedly belonging to Hunter Biden, son of the former vice president.
The list included Harris, California D.C. Senate Minority Leader, Chuck Schumer, DNY; Senator Amy Klobuchar, Democrat from Minnesota; Senator Dianne Feinstein, D – California; Senator Kirsten Gillebrand, DNY; New York Governor Andrew Cuomo; New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio; Former Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe, among others.
It is unclear if any of the Democrats have been contacted about the “targeted projects”.
The email was sent from Jim to Hunter Biden, Tony Popolinsky, Rob Walker and James Gillier.
Bobulinksi was a corporate investor who was recruited by the Biden family to run their joint venture with the now bankrupt CEFC China Energy Co.
Popolinsky is a former lieutenant in the US Navy, and served as CEO of SinoHawk Holdings, which he said was a partnership between the CEFC / Ye President and the Biden family.
“I have been called into the company to be CEO of James Gillier and Hunter Biden,” Popolinsky said in a statement to Fox News. The “reference to“ Big Man ”in an email that was posted frequently on May 13, 2017 is actually a reference to Joe Biden. The other“ JB ”referenced in this email is Jim Biden, Joe’s brother.
Popolinsky was referring to an email that Fox News got last week on May 13, 2017, which included a discussion of “bonus packages” for six people in a business deal with Chinese Energy Company. The email appears to identify Biden as “president / vice president with agreement with CEFC,” a clear reference to the now bankrupt CEFC China Energy.
The email includes a note that “Hunter has some expectations of the office which he will explain in detail.” Suggested stock split References “20” for “H” and “10 does H hold for the big man?” Without further details.
The Biden campaign said it did They issued tax documents to the former vice president And returns that do not reflect any relationship with Chinese investment. The campaign declined to comment on Fox News Thursday morning, and Harris’ office did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
“Hunter Biden called his father” the big guy “or” my boss, “Popolinsky said, in a statement to Fox News,” and he often referred to asking for his approval or advice on the various potential deals we were discussing. “
“I saw Vice President Biden say he never spoke to Hunter about his work,” Popolinsky said. “I personally saw that this was not true, because it wasn’t just Hunter’s business, they said they put Biden’s family name and legacy to the test.”
He added, “I realized that the Chinese were not really focused on a sound financial return on investment. They saw this as a political investment or an impact investment.”
“Once I realized that Hunter wanted to use the company as his own personal finger bank by withdrawing money from it as soon as it arrived from the Chinese, I took steps to prevent that from happening,” Popolinsky said, adding that he asks “the Biden family to address the American people and summarize the facts so I can get back to being.” Irrelevant – so I’m not in a position to answer these questions on their behalf. “
Popolinsky said he did not have a “political ax to grind”.
“I just saw behind the Biden curtain and was concerned about what I saw,” he said. “The Biden family made great use of the Biden family name to make millions of dollars from foreign entities even though some were from Communist-controlled China.”
