“Keep As Much Money As You Can”: Hunter Biden Disclosures Offer New Details On His Chinese Financial Dealings And Associations

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.

As Hunter's joint venture with the Chinese began to crumble that month amid the arrests of its two leaders, Bao wrote one of her most surprising emails encouraging him to take funds from the coffers of one of Hunter and CEFC's joint corporate vehicles called Hudson West. 'I'm a bit hesitated to say this to you, because I don't want you to misunderstood me as a messed up bad girl. However, for your benefit, I can't hold it back to myself,' Bao wrote in the March 26 email marked 'confidential'

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.”

In an earlier email Bao also encouraged Hunter to add personal bills into his expenses reports for the joint venture. 'I included your Yale Club Quarterly Contribution starting from last year up to the latest one, not sure if the accounting department will let this go, but let's try,' she wrote. 'Don't worry about our drinks, it's on me, no need to be included in this report'

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.

    1. get him off?

      Well that’s certainly an interesting turn of phrase. Part of his problem is that he’s been getting off in some very damning ways. 😉

  1. Off topic:. So called voter suppression.
    “Vote Democrat! Vote Early and Often!”
    Recall that bumper sticker?
    How does one person vote “often” in one election?
    Stuff the ballot box.

    1. The question is, is this Anonymous the Stupid or someone talking about Anonymous the Stupid?

        1. The context of my post, Anonymous the Stupid? It was clear.

          I couldn’t tell if Anonymous the Stupid was talking or someone was talking about Anonymous the Stupid.

    2. “An idiot painfully works out his gullibility issues in public @12:18.”

      Yes.

      He’s an idiot who ‘painfully works out his issues in public’ — on this blog — day after day after day…

      It’s pathetic.

      1. Not hard to guess, it’s Anonymous the Stupid. I’ll repeat my 12:18 response so we can compare with those of Anonymous the Stupid who generally has a lot to say but says nothing. He talks about insults but how does he respond to a posting with content? Typical insulting way without content. He proves himself a fool.

        “Right now Joe is living off the success of Trump. If he continues to do the damage we will see an economy tank. Too many people are on subsidies that incentivize them not to work so many employers are short staffed creating delays in service and therefore decreased consumer purchasing. They also can’t expand to meet potential demand.

        I think 7 million able bodies that would normally work are taking their vacations or working off the books. Why should people work when the taxpayer is paying them not to work? In October when the subsidies disappear will the 7 million go back to work? Will they be able to? The lockdowns killed many small businesses which is responsible for much of the employment in this country. How many more will have contracted and gone out of business by the time this foolishness is over? People do not realize that unoccupied, human capitol loses knowledge and skills.

        There are only a few politicians that understand economics. Ron DeSantis is one. He has passed a bill preventing people from receiving subsidies if they able to work . A few other governors are on the same track. Take note how well economically Florida and Texas are doing and then compare them to the equivalent blue states. Any sane person would conclude that people should be following the road to success of Florida and Texas. Unfortunately too many politicians and people think very short term.”

      2. Anonymous the Stupid, have we not told you to stop with the editorial masturbation? You can’t respond to your own quackery as if you are two idiots congratulating each other. We see through your tricks. We have for some time.

          1. This idiots don’t realize he was given two soles and one mouth. He speaks with multiple mouths (lacking soles) so he doesn’t have a leg to stand on.

  2. Meanwhile Racial Component of Vicious Violent Unprovoked Hate Crimes against Asians (hint: BLACKS ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR ALMOST ALL OF THEM) Still Being Ignored By The Media.

  3. Ever notice how Democrats are consistently guilty of what they accuse Republicans of doing, especially when it comes to their accusations against Trump?

    1. No, Karen, it’s the other way around. The source: The Daily Mail. Really? Trump is and has always been a crook, liar, failure, misogynist, racist and general loser.

  4. Turley: “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.”
    ***
    Yes, there is. But don’t expect the FBI or anyone else in federal law enforcement to ask that question.

    And that poses another question: Why won’t they?

    1. Tom,
      Our intel agencies have become so politicized that no rational person can dismiss their practices as anything other than political warfare. For 5 years we saw how their lawfare tactics targeted political enemies of the Democrats. As this article points out, they would use “defensive briefings” to setup their targets and then ultimately leak stories to their media allies that their targets were witting victims of disinformation campaigns, all to discredit legitimate investigations. Wash. Rinse. Repeat.

      First, powerful people across the planet are often the targets of foreign disinformation campaigns; this is normal. Second, powerful intel agencies have a history of conducting briefings solely to create records that can then be leaked to sympathetic reporters in order to generate stories about said threats. Third, there were no actionable specifics in the Johnson briefing, as the senator explained to the Post, generating strong evidence for his suspicion the FBI was setting him up. And fourth, well, the big Giuliani briefing didn’t actually happen at all.
      https://thefederalist.com/2021/05/04/fbis-failed-ron-johnson-set-up-a-case-study-in-how-agencies-use-corrupt-reporters-to-peddle-lies-hurt-their-american-enemies/

      Also a similar story ran in the WSJ:

      Did the FBI set up two Members of Congress for political attack under the guise of a “defensive briefing”? It’s possible, and Senators Ron Johnson and Chuck Grassley are rightly demanding answers.

  5. Get over it. Plutocrats are above the law. Maybe if someone pushes really hard Hunter will get a $500,000 fine and a year of community service (which will be done by an employee).

    Or more likely cosmic justice in the form or drugs, alcohol and infected prostitutes will take him down.

    This boy is riding the Hellbound Train. In all my years I’ve only seen one passenger exit without a toe tag.

  6. We went to the Animal Fair!
    The birds and beasts were there.
    The old baboon by the light of the moon…
    Was coming Trump’s hair.
    Hunter, he got drunk.
    And fell on the elephants trunk.
    The elephant sneezed and fell on his knees and that was the end of the Trump!

  7. “The continued lack of interest . . .”

    If those emails had been addressed: “Hi Don Jr.” — there’d be a pre-dawn raid at Mar-a-Lago, and the media wolves would enjoy a bloodbath.

    1. Once again Mr. Anonymous skips discussing the issue at hand and instead tries to deflect against obvious corruption. Hey EB, care to opine on whether or not Hunter and his dad are corrupt? Of course not. I would be embarrassed to be making such illogical, partisan and juvenile arguments…but I’m not a lefty and so I am not shameless.

      1. Do you mean other than the million other times I have, hullblobby? For the simplistic among us, and I realize you need a good bit more development to reach that particular level, here goes…

        Hunter, corrupt actions in the past >> possibly. Waiting for investigations of him to actually finish.

        His dad, the president? >> No, across the board.

        Now here’s a question for you: do you try to be such an idiot or does it just come naturally?

        EB

    2. Anon EB. Sometimes it’s better to wait and see what unfolds before making an assessment. There are people who are going to jump on this story like ticks on a hound. Rest assured there is more to come about who “The big guy” is and how much “The big guys” brother racked in. You could be embarrassed in the future. The again, your being embarrassed is just pushed down the unreality hole when the time comes.

      1. Love how you *never* read actual posts but just answer from the fever dreams in your head.

        EB

  8. Astonishing. When Virgil Sollozzo wanted Vito Corleone’s help, he emphasized that he had the press and politicians in his back pocket. It does not take a rocket scientist to figure out how this game is played. The politicians don’t make excessive money from their job but members of their family may cash in on their influence. Then suddenly, the politicians are paid consulting fees or get amazing book deals or are promised lucrative deals once they leave public service. The press looks the other way or they go down a rabbit hole or they employ propaganda methods to spin it their way.

    Their associates go to prison and they and their families walk away unscathed. Woe is to the reporter or investigator who gets too close to the truth.

    1. Yes. I wonder what Tony Bobulinski’s insurance agent was thinking the day after the election.

          1. Pravda could be more reliable. The only difference between the two is that Stupid people like Anonymous the Stupid believe Politifact tells the truth. Russians are much smarter. They know Pravda is lying.

            1. LOL 😀 Yes, Allan, Pravda might be more reliable than anything on the left these days.

              1. Idiots dance on the lawn in sun dresses as the dedication to alternate truth maggot munches their brains.

                    1. You have to ask the question after making such an unintelligent answer? You are not the look of intelligence.

                    2. Dude, I gave you a softball. Well…, guess I’ll have to take it…

                      If you have to ask, you can’t be it. So there’s your answer.

                    3. “Dude, I gave you a softball. “

                      After producing the first unintelligent question you had to ask? All you have done here is produce more of the same. I think you need to be coached so that you can better respond.

                      Stop being proud of your failures.

  9. Move along , nothing to see here….just CHICOM belt & road initiative by flowing cash and whores to Hunter , uncle jim and Baizou Biden – aka “Mr 10 percent” , yeah that big guy.
    And don’t think for a moment this chicom money hasn’t run down these politicians legs and dirtied Obammy too since he and susan rice are the real puppet masters of Lord darth Baizou biden.
    The corruption , the absolute lack of morality in these players sellout of country & people is epic and complete. These vacant cash & power hungry hubris addled leftists know nothing of the world outside their gold plated lifestyles floated upon taxpayer and Chinese communist cash…..Nothing. The people that – sheeple and propagandists that buy into this “zeig heil demokratzi” party bile have NO LOVE nor RESPECT for America. Only raw power and CASH. And they don’t care whom they sell out to get either.

  10. “My problem is that the media has overwhelming and continuing interest in one (Giuliani) and little interest in the other (Biden).”

    That is a soft way of saying the media is corrupt without getting cancelled.

      1. It is highly improbable that Giuliani is guilty of any criminal act. It is extremely likely that Hunter has committed more than one criminal offense that could lead to a jail term if the laws were applied to Hunter the way they are applied elsewhere. The Biden Criminal Syndicate is likely involved in activities that are inappropriate or illegal and likely such activities extend all the way to the top and to Joe Biden.

        The questions you raise have nothing to do with innocence or guilt. These questions involve the abandonment of rule of law by the Biden administration.

        1. Signified of course by the search warrant at Rudy’s and the lack of one at Hunter’s. And as point of fact I didn’t raise questions. I just made an observation.

          1. Hunter’s laptop disclosures are over a year old and the disclosures mostly hidden under the rug. If one has a brain on top of their shoulders they immediately recognize that Hunter has been treated differently than other common criminals as has his father and the entire Biden Criminal Syndicate.

          2. They don’t need a search warrant for Hunters laptop, because they already have it. There is a question. Has this new information disclosed from the laptop been leaked by the FBI in preparation for the possibility of the Republicans regaining control of the House in 2022? There will be many questions asked. My ear distinctly hears the sound of quaking in boots.

            1. “My ear distinctly hears the sound of quaking in boots.”

              Nope. It’s just the pathology getting in rhythm with itself.

    1. Yes, it is true. Some animals are more equal than others. We’ve learned that lesson. And dogs are definitely out there sniffing around to support Napoleon. God help us.

  11. Those emails are classic working a mark/chump or asset as the intelligence community calls them.

    1. Agreed. In fact, she knows these emails could be recovered. She’s using them and their content as a pressure point to get the Biden’s back under Beijing’s thumb.

      What Beijing didn’t understand is that Democrats have always had a host of double standards that make them strangely immune to the consequences of their own corruption. It appears the Biden crime family has suckers on both sides of the Pacific.

      BTW, folks, this is why Tony Bobulinski quit and kept the emails. He knew he was the intended fall guy and nothing more. Not everybody got suckered… until 3AM on election night.

  12. Philadelphia Inquirer: China has given 67 million to U of Penn. Joe Biden paid $900,000 as a “professor” at Penn, never taught a class.

    1. This would be a laugh if it were not so true. And then when you note baizou biden was in the BOTTOM 5 percentile of his law class……. any teaching this old tard could teach would only be about how to succeed at corruption as a political hack.

  13. Old news, Mr. Turley
    https://www.nationalreview.com/news/ron-johnson-asks-fbi-to-clarify-if-it-possesses-material-from-hunter-bidens-laptop/
    https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-8866457/Laptop-allegedly-belonging-Hunter-Biden-linked-FBI-White-Collar-money-laundering-probe.html

    and a thousand other news stories detailing Hunter smoking crack and sexually assaulting his minor niece, accepting bribes from the CCP, payoffs to Greasy Joey ‘Two-Fingers’ DeGrift.

  14. Hunter is not important (pathetic is a better description).

    The lack of interest by the media is just another data point in their partisanship and dishonesty.

    But the apparent corruption of the Biden family is critical.

    To what extent are they “owned” by the Chinese?

    Now watch all the Lefties on the blog go “But the Trump family…”

    Guys, I have news for you. Trump is not president and he is in the rear view mirror.

    Biden is president. Think about the consequences of his family’s corruption.

    1. Think about the consequences of Biden’s radical agenda too. His presidency will set this nation back for decades unless there is a vigorous effort to stop his initiatives.

      1. I don’t see a whole lot of unity there either. Joe is making a joke of controlled immigration, which to me makes Joe an existential threat to democracy.

        1. Illegal immigration will flip the country blue, permanently. Illegal aliens have children here, who are born citizens, taking advantage of an Amendment intended to benefit slaves. Those children often vote Democrat when they turn 18, as it’s the party of Open Borders.

          In this way, Democrats can flood red border states with illegal immigrants, flip those states blue in the long game, get permanent control of Congress, get rid of the EC, and get permanent control of the White House, expand the Supreme Court in order to pack it, and gain permanent control of the SCOTUS.

          All branches of government, permanently under Democrat control, in a blatant power grab that the right seems unprepared to effectively combat. We’ll just complain as we watch the Republican get flushed down the toilet of ruinous Leftist ideology until we’re all dumpster diving and fighting over water and food like they do in Venezuela.

          Leftist ideology, like Communism and Socialism, always runs out of money, and always abuses human rights in the long run. But those born into the blessings of living in a successful, free, safe Western Democracy where the poor live in a standard considered middle class in most of the world, will throw those blessings away with both hands in their ignorance.

        2. Right now Joe is living off the success of Trump. If he continues to do the damage we will see an economy tank. Too many people are on subsidies that incentivize them not to work so many employers are short staffed creating delays in service and therefore decreased consumer purchasing. They also can’t expand to meet potential demand.

          I think 7 million able bodies that would normally work are taking their vacations or working off the books. Why should people work when the taxpayer is paying them not to work? In October when the subsidies disappear will the 7 million go back to work? Will they be able to? The lockdowns killed many small businesses which is responsible for much of the employment in this country. How many more will have contracted and gone out of business by the time this foolishness is over? People do not realize that unoccupied, human capitol loses knowledge and skills.

          There are only a few politicians that understand economics. Ron DeSantis is one. He has passed a bill preventing people from receiving subsidies if they able to work . A few other governors are on the same track. Take note how well economically Florida and Texas are doing and then compare them to the equivalent blue states. Any sane person would conclude that people should be following the road to success of Florida and Texas. Unfortunately too many politicians and people think very short term.

        3. Glad your demographic is shrinking to the point you need to go all in on fixing elections as the only strategy left.

          1. If millennials wake up, you’ll be the shrinking ones. If they don’t, you’ll be your own best punishment.

              1. “President Kamala Harris.”

                Kathlene Steinle didn’t vote for Harris. She is dead killed by an illegal immigrant deported from the US 5 times and released from a SF prison. Kamala supported setting Sanchez, the killer, free. She supports things like that demonstrating that she cares little about the safety of American families. She lacks concern for hard working American Families.

                She has a long history of working against the interests of America.

                1. Lee Atwater ad blue print lives on long past his renouncing it on his death bed, I see.

                  1. You are not making much sense. Are you saying Kathleen Steinle wasn’t killed, Sanchez wasn’t guilty, and Kamala Harris didn’t support the decision? Are you also going to say Harris didn’t support the provision of bail for rioters that caused damage and property loss?

                    1. I’m saying you’re retreading Willie Horton ads. Shamelessly and falsely.

                      I get it, you’re trying to make something stick to Harris that doesn’t want to stick in order to discount her chances of holding the office of president. Guess what? If that were the case she never would’ve survived the vetting process for being named V.P. Especially with her being of black and Indian descent. Sorry, you’re just going to have to pout somewhere else.

                    2. It seems like the same non-thinking anonymous mindset is trying to get two bites at the apple. Willie Horton has nothing to do with the release of Sanchez. You need a hook to lead people away from your ideas that don’t work, so you have provided Willie Horton as your first argument. Normally one should step away from a further argument because right here you demonstrate a disingenuous attitude you seem to have when you discuss anything with substance.

                      “I get it, you’re trying to make something stick to Harris that doesn’t want to stick in order to discount her chances of holding the office of president. “

                      A lame attack instead of information. I am stating Kamala Harris’s position on dangerous felons. She has a long record of this type of abuse to lawful individuals. You recognize that such positions reflect badly on her, and too many hard-working Americans of both parties.

                      “Guess what? If that were the case she never would’ve survived the vetting process for being named V.P. “

                      From bad to worse to the horrid. The press did everything they could to hide the negatives on the Democrat candidate for Vice President.

                      I will repeat what I stated to your other jumbled mindset.

                      Kamala supported that type of action “I trust and believe in the ability of local sheriffs to make a decision about what’s in the best interest of his or her community in terms of local safety,”

                      She didn’t define the risks and supported many actions that risk civilian lives by placing what she considered the rights of illegal citizens (that broke the law) and criminals over the rights of hard-working American taxpayers.

                      There is something very wrong with your mind.

      2. Actually I have a hard time thinking of anything other than MTG making Gaetz wear the gas mask when she has her way with him.

          1. So if Anonymous responds it his own post as if he were somebody else, are we to assume Anonymous is having his way with himself?
