There are new disclosures from Hunter Biden’s laptop that offer an added perspective on his dealings with Chinese figures, including Patrick Ho, secretary general of Chinese oil giant CEFC, who was later indicted and has been connected with Chinese intelligence. The emails and pictures relate to the young Chinese assistant supplied to Hunter who makes revealing statements about the fluid expense accounts and level of support given Hunter by the Chinese. I have read through the new messages and I am not clear about the relationship with the young aide who tells him that she still has his dog tags in her New York apartment. However, the new emails include details on how Biden was paid and the fluidity of the accounts established by the Chinese.
There is much on the Internet suggesting that the 29-year-old Chinese-American assistant, JiaQi Bao, was an effort by Chinese intelligence to create a sexual relationship that could be used to influence Hunter and ultimately his father — much like the scandal involving Rep. Eric Swalwell’s intimate relationship with an alleged Chinese spy. It is not clear that Biden had any intimate relationship with Bao.
The first of the emails from Bao appear to be dated shortly before the arrest of Ho in November 2017 and after the business partners were stepping back from the company and associations including the one with Bao. It is not clear if Biden was told at that point that he needed to wall off Bao and others connected to the company, but he does not appear to respond to the emails.
The emails take on a certain stalking quality as Bao repeatedly seeks to resume the association by stressing that she wants to be his friend. She also repeatedly references some misunderstanding that he might have about her. (At one point, she tells Biden that she does not want him to view her as “a messed up bad girl.”). She also states in later emails that she tried to reach out to Hunter on various communication systems or platforms to no avail. She says that she wants to have a relationship as a friend, but it appears that Hunter was not responding to those entreaties.
My greater interest remains in the fluidity of Hunter’s financial dealings, the references to mass transfers to him or his uncle, and the role of Ho who American intelligence has long tied to the Chinese government and intelligence services. In the emails, Bao offers possible talking points in dealing with the election and opposing research on Trump including Trump’s alleged links to a Chinese-owned Florida “prostitution parlor,” an ironic attack point given the photos of Hunter with alleged Chinese prostitutes. (Biden admits in this book that apart from his intimate relationship with his late brother’s widow, Hallie. the “other women I’d been with during rampages since my divorce were hardly the dating type.”).
Bao’s emails discuss Chinese accounts that appear to have cash available to Biden to use at his discretion. One section is titled “Keep As Much Money As You Can” and encourages Biden to drain accounts that were just sitting there with cash. She even suggests that Biden ramp up his expenses to grab the money. The references indicate the easy availability of the money from the Chinese during a period when Hunter admits to be being continually drunk and engaged in sexual and narcotic excesses.
Again, in fairness to Hunter Biden, there is no response from him and the emails come across as a former assistant trying to reestablish a relationship and regain his confidence. However, it gives an insight into these accounts and how Biden could pull expenses from the company.
The enterprise itself seemed to quickly collapse but Biden received a huge amount of money without an evidence of substantial work on his part. Indeed, Biden admits that he was still a crack addict during this period and the photos show him passed out and doing drugs as well as sexual trysts with various women, including possible prostitutes. Gao herself expresses concern over Hunter’s abuse of alcohol: “One of my New Year’s Wishes is that you could drink less… I will do anything and everything to make you happy so that alcoholic beverages’ widely believed mythical function as a stress reliever won’t be an excuse for indulgence!”
Hunter recently admitted that he was still a crack addict and alcoholic: “[d]rinking a quart of vodka a day by yourself in a room is absolutely, completely debilitating” as well as “smoking crack around the clock.” (Indeed, the dog tags in Bao’s apartment were from Biden’s short stint in the Navy before being discharged for drug use). However, the Chinese wanted to pay him millions as their business adviser and assigned Bao as his assistant.
This brings us back to Ho and the ongoing investigation of Hunter Biden. Biden has insisted that the investigation is solely focused on tax issues and he will be cleared. That may be true. However, we know that these transactions were flagged by federal authorities including claims over possible money laundering. As an attorney, I would be very concerned if my client was transferring such large amounts of money from these accounts. The items discussed by Goa include her listing of Hunter’s expenses as including payment to the Yale Club in May 2018 totaling $16,578.69. It is not clear which account that money came from. However, she notes that she is “not sure if the accounting department will let this go.”
There is a legitimate question of why a company closely connected to the Chinese government and possible Chinese intelligence would be giving millions to Hunter and his uncle. Hunter’s laptop shows that he transferred about $1.4 million of funds from his company Owasco to his uncle’s consulting firm between 2017 and 2018.
Hunter and Joe Biden’s brother Jim partnered with CEFC in 2017 but the enterprise collapsed the following year when Ho was arrested and later convicted of bribery in a US federal prosecution.
The continued lack of interest in those connections by most of the media is astonishing and part of a continued blackout of virtually any scandals and possible crimes connected to Hunter. I feel the same way about the continued investigation of Rudy Giuliani’s efforts in the Ukraine. There is a legitimate media interest in whether laws were broken or whether Trump associates lied about these efforts. My problem is that the media has overwhelming and continuing interest in one (Giuliani) and little interest in the other (Biden). Both raise serious questions that should be fully investigated and disclosed for the public.

Why aren’t the Bidens in jail for treason? And they brag about what they. It just means we have no justice system.
The MSM is going nuts over allegations that Hunter Biden was receiving opposition research from Chinese intelligence sources, similar to how they reacted to Paul Manafort and Kilimnik. Nah, just kidding. They have no interest if it involves anyone in the DNC.
But mysteriously, the young assistant also sent him opposition research to help Joe Biden’s 2020 election bid, urged him to take cash from the joint venture’s accounts as the business collapsed and wrote flirty and personal messages and even ended up with Hunter’s military dog tags in her New York apartment – the same tags he can be seen wearing in home-made porn videos he recorded on his laptop.
JT. Why the interest in Guiliani ?
If there evidence that foreign governments were trying to leverage Guiliani to get favorable treatment from President Trump ?
If so please bring them on.
The actual evidence was that Guiliniani was wandering arround eastern europe gathering dirt on the Biden’s.
That is legal – just as Clinton gathering dirt on Trump was legal.
The better comparison is between Hunter Biden and Paul Manafort – except that Paul Manafort had little influence to sell and Hunter had a great deal.
John that is a pretty good explanation of what is happening. We don’t have any Liberal posters that maintain a high level of dialogue on this blog. Whoever might have been able to push a Liberal position has been displaced by those leftists that do not think, have no facts and have never considered the fact that they could be wrong. They do not learn from history. Instead they rewrite it.
Just a functional point, Allan. Those who “rewrite” history actually ‘change’ history. Otherwise, history is just itself, doomed to be repeated.
And as a sidebar, maggots have deviously grazed on your brain.
Bug, you have just proven my point. There are Liberals that are able to discuss things rationally and with knowledge. They don’t remain on this blog because people like you embarrass them. I don’t blame them. Your fantasies have become your facts, your critical thinking ability is near nil, but sometimes you write a good story even if nothing you write is true.
Since you’re SO Convinced that you’re Correct WHY Do you NEED to Be “Anonymous “?
Whose “anonymous”? My initials SM are sufficient enough for any run of the mill dummy to figure out?
We will have to await the indictment (if any) of Giuliani to know what he is being accused of having done criminally. Among the allegations are that he attempted to get Ukraine to announce publicly that it was opening an investigation into the Bidens in order to impugn Joe’s integrity on the eve of the election. Secondly, there are allegations that Giuliani had a hand in getting the respected anti-corruption American ambassador to Ukraine Yovanovitch removed from her position.
Turley has stated, “I have been a long critic of Rudy Giuliani going back years.“
YOU LIBERAL HAVE TURNED THIS NATION INTO A CESSPOLL !! Rudy did nothing, meanwhile all of Obamas cronies spied on an incoming President, then attempted a coup, and never paid the price. You are scum, I knew you would brainwash the youth like Hitler did and Race bait like Hitler did, and now you scum even blatantly steal elections like Hitler did. I hope you all burn in hell very soon.
Wild guess- Trump voter?
Jeff, Rioters, looters and criminals…
Wild guess- Biden Voter?
Simply a pragmatic.
This article is just a fluff piece for the Biden
Joe describing Hunter: “He’s the best man I know.” And the big guy should know: Hunter gives him 10 percent.
Apparently, however, daddy didn’t know about the “burn” files on sonny’s laptop. No one’s going to investigate. As the FBI told the computer repair guy, it’s best if you keep your freaking mouth shut.
Note: only 10 percent addicts manage to stay clean for very long. Sonny’s odds aren’t good.
True. But then there’s Mike Lindell, the My Pillow guy who healed from his crack addiction to become a successful businessman. Lindell offers programs to help other addicts find recovery. Lindell is doing good work in the world post recovery. Maybe Hunter should reach out to the My Pillow guy? Joe Biden “the Big Guy” doesn’t seem to be helping his son Hunter “recover” from anything. He’s only helping Hunter get deeper in the corruption that is now available to the greedy corrupt sick Biden family.
When was the last time you saw a well connected democrat held accountable for anything?
I was going to say Jesse Jackson Jr. but then I remembered Catherine Pugh is far more recent.
Isn’t Matt Gaetz a democrat?
There are writers on this forum that write about everything else except the content of a laptop owned by a man who will not say that the laptop is not his. They twist themselves into knots to ignore the actual content from the laptop pictured in easily read black and white. You can hear them lamenting now. Oh please great and mighty God of CNN make it go away! Make it go away!
How many times do I have to say that I AGREE with Turley that Hunter should be investigated and that the mainstream media ought not to dismiss out of hand these allegations? Furthermore, if Joe is implicated in any corruption, I say impeach him. I am against ALL corruption, and I don’t give a damn who is behind it- Left or Right! Are we clear?
That said, the bias of CNN and MSNNC on the Hunter story does not excuse Turley’s unwillingness to condemn Trump’s Big Lie and legally analyze the defamation lawsuit against Fox for its role in broadcasting this conspiracy theory to its viewers as a result of which the majority of Republicans now believe this nonsense.
Regarding that Fox News link you cited, I did not suggest that Fox never mentioned the Giuliani scandal. I DVR 3 hours of daily prime time FOX and MSNBC. Hannity, Carlson and Ingraham, the prime time heavy hitters, have not given the attention to the Giuliani story that Maddow and Co., have (Hannity gave Giuliani an opportunity to attack the FBI as “crooks” without any pushback from Hannity). Nor has Turley been invited to appear in prime time to weigh-in on the merits of the Giuliani matter whereas he was called upon to opine about the Hunter laptop affair if my memory serves me.
Fox’s bias just like MSNBC’s bias is not the least bit surprising. What is surprising is that a seemingly intellectually honest academic, namely, Jonathan Turley, is prepared to play this game. Can there be any doubt that were he employed by MSNBC he rightly would condemn the Big Lie and would not hesitate to take a stand in denouncing the cancellation of Liz Cheney for daring to tell the truth?
As a Fox employee, Turley knows what’s expected of him. I’d like to think that I would not forsake my liberal principles for such a large paycheck. Unfortunately, I’ll never be confronted with that moral dilemma. Accordingly, I can’t hate a man for selling out when I might have done the same had I been in his shoes! If I thought that Turley was beyond redemption, I would not waste so much time trying to shame him. He is a good man at heart.
“That said, the bias of CNN and MSNNC on the Hunter story does not excuse Turley’s unwillingness to condemn Trump’s Big Lie and legally”
CNN and MSNBC, on a continuous basis, have distorted the facts and lied. CNN has been caught on camera stating their objective as a news organization is to defeat a candidate. That is where the “Big Lie” exists if you wish to use the term.
There is no question that there were election irregularities. This was likely the least secure presidential election in decades. Why should the election not be questioned? Why should election procedures not be investigated? Why should we not seek out the truth so that future elections will not have those same irregularities?
We should be looking for the Truth and that seems more of the direction Turley is taking. It sounds like you have closed the door to seeking out the truth and require Turley to defend your position. Why should he?
“and legally analyze the defamation lawsuit against Fox for its role in broadcasting this conspiracy theory to its viewers”
What does a defamation suit mean? A party could file a defamation suit even if they know they are guilty of what they are being accused of. What is your point? You don’t know the results of the suit so why should Turley take sides? Again you have closed the doors and are not seeking the truth.
“as a result of which the majority of Republicans now believe “
Firstly, you do not know what the majority of Republicans believe. Have you asked them? I don’t think so. What difference does it make what any group believes if the facts and investigations haven’t been done? All that means is that a whole group of people can be wrong if indeed they believe what you think they say
“Fox’s bias just like MSNBC’s bias is not the least bit surprising. “
It shouldn’t be. I think both companies will agree they swing in the opposite direction of each other. What is your point?
You are telling Turley to condemn someone using the term the Big Lie that is a term that came into use in 1939. It means distortion of the truth. You are asking Turley to condemn something that you don’t even define. That puts you in position of FOX whose mistake may have been not appropriately defining their claim which led to a defamation suit. Then again Fox might have been totally correct. Do you know and understand the exact nature of the suit?
“I can’t hate a man for selling out when I might have done the same had I been in his shoes! “
You have accused Turley of “selling out”. Precisely what has he sold out? Did he lie? Did he perjure himself? What are you talking about? Why do you believe he needs redemption? All these terms are flying out without any proper basis demonstrating that you have strong opinions and are not willing to let others have theirs.
The above comment was from Jeff Silberman. Dunno why it stated “anonymous.”
The immediate comment above that starts after the quotes with “CNN and MSNBC, on a continuous basis, have distorted the facts and lied.” is not from Jeff Silberman.
True. That reply was not posted in the correct location. My post begins with “Think” though I’m fairly certain that no one mistook who wrote it.
Turley: “I feel the same way about the continued investigation of Rudy Giuliani’s efforts in the Ukraine. There is a legitimate media interest in whether laws were broken or whether Trump associates lied about these efforts. My problem is that the media has overwhelming and continuing interest in one (Giuliani) and little interest in the other (Biden). Both raise serious questions that should be fully investigated and disclosed for the public.”
I could not agree more. While the mainstream media focuses on Giuliani and ignores Hunter, Fox News focuses on Hunter and ignores Giuliani (except to give him a platform to defend himself by throwing him softball questions). As will come to no surprise, Turley NEVER criticizes Fox by name.
And it bears repeating that Turley has ignored a scandal which discredits his own judgment. He has not reacted to the public condemnation by Judge Barrett-Jackson of Bill Barr, a man he vouchsafed. Why has Turley not come to his defense? Probably because his network has ignored the scandal (at least by their prime time hosts)
Moreover, Turley is still holding his tongue about The Big Lie: he refuses to condemn Trump and his followers for continuing to spread it, he ignores the travesty of the Arizona recount by an organization headed by a conspiracy theorist, and he will not even comment on the free speech implications of the Trumpists cancelling Liz Cheney for telling the truth about the election!
It is truly pathetic that he is not man enough to stand up and be counted. I am afraid that Fox has bought his silence.
It’s so typical of you comrade jeffy ; You obfuscate and change the subject…again . You are the pathetic one with your absolutely one way drivel. Your love of baizou Biden and his crackhead low brow offspring shades you for what you really are.
I said that I AGREED with Turley’s point that both the mainstream media and Fox News are pandering to their respective audiences by ignoring scandals which their viewers do not wish to hear! I want Hunter investigated thoroughly. And if Joe is implicated in his scandals, so be it.
I am delighted to give Turley credit where credit is due. As both of us are liberals, he and I share the same views unlike yours, but I would be betraying my liberal values were I to overlook Turley’s hypocrisy on account of his prejudice against his employer’s economic competitors.
The travesty of the Arizona recount? Were you still just a gleam in your father’s eye back in 2000, when Gore and Dems were demanding recount? My biggest contention is the Obama, Biden headed up coup attempt on DT. I am sure you would disagree with that though. You know darn well DT did not collude with Russia But hey, your a liberal with a Libs channel locked tunnel vision and hell or high water will not chage that. The Arizona audit count will disclose some tihings to many of you guys chagrin.
“Moreover, Turley is still holding his tongue about The Big Lie: he refuses to condemn Trump and his followers for continuing to spread it, he ignores the travesty of the Arizona recount by an organization headed by a conspiracy theorist, and he will not even comment on the free speech implications of the Trumpists cancelling Liz Cheney for telling the truth about the election!
Liz Cheney is a “Know Nothing Republican liberal.” She ran in Wy. while her real home is in Virginia. This country is being destroyed by the Democrats, not Donald Trump. Liz has become part of the swamp. That is why the swamp loves her.
Jeff Silberman, Fox News on Giuliani. https://www.foxnews.com/politics/feds-search-giuliani-apartment-ukraine-investigation. CNN on Hunter Biden laptop https://www.cnn.com/2021/04/02/politics/hunter-biden-laptop/index.html. The links are from stories concerning both Hunter Biden and Giuliani. If you would have taken the time to Google, Fox News Giuliani, you would have found that Fox did report on the Giuliani investigation without bias. In your tripping over yourself to get to your Turley bashing you didn’t take the time to research the premise of your hypocrisy. It’s like everything around you turns to a blur on your frenzied quest to demean Professor Turley. Yours is the most pronounced case of Turley Derangement Syndrome on this forum and that’s saying a lot. In the CNN interview of Hunter did you notice the tough follow up questions by your friends at CNN?
Nice post Think. Jeff wants to make himself believe that he is fair and balanced, but most people see through the veneer. He is downright nasty to Turley and rabid.
Hey Jeff. Barrett-Jackson is an auto auction not a judge. Once again a lack of research that you continually display. How do ya like them cars there judge.
Thanks for the correction! Judge Berman-Jackson! I guess that innocent slip up proves to you that I am just as big a liar as Trump.
Jeff, you could have looked it up but you couldn’t bother to take the time. Just like your opinion that Fox didn’t report on the Giuliani story in a neutral manner that is refuted by the link I provided. You didn’t look up how Fox reported on Giuliani. You just spouted something that you made up between your ears. You’ve posted enough that the evidence of a pattern is easily discernible. Evidenced by your attacking Professor Turley in every post you write. Regardless of the subject matter you sooner or later fall into a fit of Turley Derangement Syndrome. Very strange.
“Moreover, Turley is still holding his tongue about The Big Lie: he refuses to condemn Trump and his followers for continuing to spread it, “
It’s amazing how Jeff continues to go after professor Turley because though Turley is on the left, he is not rabid enough for Jeff’s taste. Trump doesn’t think he lost. That is his prerogative. He has good reason to question the election procedures. While we speak those that are trying to prove whether voting procedures in certain areas were performed appropriately or not we see Democrats trying to stop those legal investigations.
Trust in our elections is of utmost importance to all Americans so it behooves us to secure our election process. Unfortunately, some like Jeff do not care about having secure elections as long as he is on the winning side. That is why he keeps hollering at those that care about fair elections.
After seeing all possible ways of election cheating and media bias in Serbian case … I simply have to spoil your Big Lie – conspiracy theory show. Here’s how: https://monsterhunternation.com/2020/11/12/i-asked-one-simple-question-to-people-who-work-with-fraud/
Not happy about it, but US elections are bad joke, maybe worse than Serbian.

There are some here who say that the Hunter laptop story is phony. There is one person who has never said that the laptop story is phony. His name is Hunter Biden. Hunter has never said that the laptop is not his. It must follow then that those who say the laptop story is phony must be in direct disagreement with Hunter Biden. Natacha and Anon are making a denial for Hunter when he won’t make a denial for himself. I wonder if he is aware that they have become his so expert spokesmen. At least he should give them a reward from the China money for being such good little solders for the Democratic Party.
Is this the fault of the networks or other media but lately every foto of Biden JR makes him look like a sleaze. and no it isn’t because of this network. Or because he hangs out in NYC and something rubbed off. Although he did look better prior to owning up to being a socialist.
Turley: do you get a bonus every time you try to add fuel to the phony “Hunter Biden scandal”?
How do you arrive at it being a “phony scandal”?
It is a scandal.
The media ignoring it is the even bigger scandal.
Natacha, the story comes directly from Hunters laptop. Phony stories are when someone makes things up. Turley has simply posted what’s on the laptop. This is evidence of direct payments to the son and brother of the President of the United States by a hostile foreign government. One would hope that you might have some concern for your nation. This is evidence of the buying of two close relatives of our President. Perhaps I go to far in my supposition that you might have concern for your country.
“Perhaps I go too far in my supposition that you might have concern for your country.”
Anon, Natacha dismisses the Hunter story as phony. If one had a concern for ones nation wouldn’t there be some curiosity about communications found on Hunters laptop by an agent of a foreign nation. As a patriot wouldn’t their be some curiosity about large sums of money coming from China into the bank accounts of the son and brother of Joe Biden. Party before the security of your nation is abundantly on display.
What is your source of the alleged story? Fox, OAN, News Max, Breitbart? Where did Turley get his information? Did he see the laptop? No, he didn’t. How does he “know’ it belonged to Hunter Biden? Where’s the proof? It is “evidence” of nothing, another diversionary tactic away from the true scandals of Trump, Giuliani, et al.
And then there’s NUTCHACHA, inordinate beneficiary of affirmative action, generational welfare, forced busing, unfair fair housing, discriminatory non-discrimination, social services, Obamacare, WIC, SNAP, TANF, HAMP, HARP, HUD, HHS, etc., ad infinitum, ad nauseam.
