Documents reveal that a failed Hunter Biden business venture, one that an ex-partner said involved Joe Biden, targeted “key domestic contacts” including Governor Cuomo (D-NY) and Senator Chuck Schumer (D-NY) for potential projects across the country, documents reveal.
Though the venture never took off, it is interesting to see who the Biden crime family tried to get their hooks on.
A memo that was dated May 15, 2017 containing possible contacts was sent by Joe Biden’s brother Jim Biden to his nephew and three other men who all started a limited liability company to partner with another company on “global and/or domestic” projects involving “infrastructure, energy, financial services and other strategic sectors,” the documents reveal.
The other company was backed by a Chinese energy tycoon who has since been “disappeared” by the Chinese government, and was to “be primarily responsible for arranging financing and execution” of the projects, according to documents that were released by Tony Bobulinksi, who served as the CEO of the joint venture.
The memo, titled “Key domestic contacts for phase one target projects,” noted that Cuomo “is moving forward with major infrastructure projects such as the long-stalled Tappan Zee Bridge replacement and the much-needed redevelopment of LaGuardia Airport.”
“His administration has invested nearly $4 billion through the Regional Council and Upstate Revitalization initiatives to jumpstart the economy and support local priorities for development,” it added.
Cuomo was mentioned in an earlier email that Bobulinski released where a different partner, James Gilliar of the consulting agency J2cR, discussed a number of strategies tied to their business plan.
“Meet Gov of NYS ? , if so times ? Meet anyone else ?, are we meeting in NYC or elsewhere ?,” Gilliar wrote on April 27, 2017.
The memo included no elaboration about Mayor de Blasio but said the then-president of the city’s Economic Development Corporation, Maria Torres-Springer, “drives the physical transformation of New York City, completes major infrastructure upgrades, and encourages the creation of new residential and commercial districts.”
Senator Chuck Schumer was described as having “made improving New York’s economy a top priority, bringing affordable air service to Upstate New York and working to successfully retain New York jobs at risk of leaving and attract many new firms to New York.” They were leaving because of the outrageously high taxes in New York once the president ended the practice of progressive states forcing the rest of the country to subsidize their rich people in federal income taxes when their governors allowed them to write off their outrageously high state income tax on their federal returns.
Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) along with New York’s then-commissioner of economic development, Howard Zemsky, were also included, as were other officials in California, Florida, Minnesota and Virginia. Some of them had relationships to the partners which were highlighted.
The memo described then-California Governor Jerry Brown as a “long time friend from his first term as governor,” and his successor, Gavin Newsom, then the lieutenant governor, was recognized as “Hunter’s friend.” Hunter’s friend, eh?
Senator Rick Scott (R-FL) was described as a “personal friend of my friend Billy Rubin and close to my friend Ken Jenne, former Sheriff of Broward County, FL.”
In the meantime, another email sent by Jim Biden on May 15, 2017, and titled “short list of foreign friends for next phase?” contained a second list of names that included Mexican billionaire Carlos Slim, described as “arguably the richest man in the world” and “very friendly.”
The memo added, “…mentioning Slim now because he is big into racing and has a Formula I racing team and I know you are headed to the Grand Prix.”
Others on the list included the presidents of Colombia and Argentina, and the “European Union in general.”
These memos, which seem to have been copy-and-paste jobs, were sent as Microsoft Word documents with property values that show their author as Jim Biden’s wife, Sara Biden.
In response to the memos, Hunter Biden emailed the other partners the following day and expressed concern “that these lists of contacts and strengths are going to come back to haunt us.” Why would that be, Hunter, asked nobody ever.
Hunter Biden suggested the lists “could easily serve . . . as the foundation for the divvying up of territory both geographically and commercially” by their partner in the joint venture.
“I may be paranoid but having worked in. [sic] The lobbying industry for years these attempts to create focus at the outset always and I mean always ended in disaster,” the email reads.
“We should be thinking what we want to focus on and not who knows who as direction for focus in my opinion.”
The memos and emails are part of a batch of more than 900 documents Bobulinski made public this week and they outline plans for a company called Oneida Holdings to supply consulting services to a company called Hudson West IV. It all sounds so legit doesn’t it?
The documents show Hudson West IV was controlled by Ye Jianming, then chair of CEFC China Energy Co., and “Director Zang,” an apparent reference to CEFC’s executive director, Zang Jian Jun. It’s always China with the Bidens. Now you know why Joe Biden is always saying China is not a threat to us.
Ye vanished after being taken into custody by Chinese authorities in early 2018, and CEFC, which was China’s largest private energy company, went bankrupt this year, according to reports.
The joint venture, which was known as SinoHawk Holdings, was by no means funded by CEFC nor did it complete any deals, The Wall Street Journal reported late Thursday, citing people familiar with the matter.
SinoHawk was apparently dissolved in October 2018, according to some documents that have been released by Bobulinski.
Cuomo’s office didn’t return a request for comment. Yeah, no kidding.
City Hall stated there have been no meetings between the Oneida partners and any officials.
“Take a metal detector out to Rockaway Beach this weekend. You’ll have a better chance of finding something of substance and you’ll get a nice walk in, too,” said de Blasio spokesman Mitch Schwartz.
A Schumer spokesman said neither the senator nor his aides had knowledge of the memo. I don’t believe that for a minute.
A Scott spokeswoman said, “Sen. Scott wasn’t contacted. He has called for a full investigation into Hunter Biden and the Biden family’s corruption.”
