Hunter Biden’s Boastful Remarks About China Are Coming Back To Haunt Him

OPINION | This article contains the author's opinion.

Newly released emails from Hunter Biden’s infamous laptop show him boasting about having a “very good relationship” with Chinese ambassador Max Baucus.

Baucus was appointed by President Obama as the ambassador to China. Hunter arranged multiple meetings between his business associates and the Chinese ambassador.

Hunter told his business associates that the Chinese ambassador is available for “anything we need.”

Hunter’s company Rosemont Seneca was profiting through a joint venture with BHR Partners, a Beijing-backed private equity firm controlled by Bank of China, and the Chinese investment firm called Bohai Capital. Here’s a look at the emails:

One email from April 2, 2014 shows Hunter’s business partner, BHR co-founder Devon Archer, communicating with Alwen Liu of Bohai Capital that he was “currently arranging a meeting with the new US Ambassador to China Max Baucus for late April / early May to meet our leadership team in Beijing.”

Two years later in 2016, Archer resigned as he was under investigation by the U.S. Justice Department and the SEC for his role in defrauding a Native American tribe. He was sentenced to over a year in federal prison.

In April 2014, Hunter Biden emailed Archer explaining his close relationship with the Chinese ambassador.

Hunter wrote, “On Baucus- we have a very very good relationship and I can ask anything we need- don’t need his best friend if that’s why you are mtg him.”

Months later, Archer told BHR CEO Jonathan Li in a Sept. 11, 2014, email that he was “waiting for a confirmation for our meeting at the US Embassy with Ambassador Baucus October 8th” while discussing scheduling for the third BHR board meeting later that month in Beijing. Hunter responded the next day inquiring whether Archer informed Li that he had to “sit this one out.” It is unclear what Hunter was referring to in this response.

Obama traveled to China on a state visit that November and met with Chinese President Xi Jinping, where the two leaders announced a climate deal to cut greenhouse emissions.

Roughly three months later, Archer sent an email to Bulger, the nephew of notorious Boston mobster Whitey Bulger and Hunter’s longtime business partner, saying he was in talks with Baucus’ office for another meeting with the ambassador.

“Also spoke to Ambassador Baucus’s office and they were willing to do a meeting next week. Tentatively,” Archer wrote on Jan. 27, 2015, Cc’ing Hunter.

The next day, on Jan. 28, 2015, while discussing scheduling for a fifth BHR board meeting, BHR Managing Partner Jason Zhu said Baucus had “arranged a meeting with BHR” at the U.S. Embassy in Beijing that Feb. 5.

On Feb. 2, 2015, Zhu sent the official schedule for Beijing to the BHR board members, which included a “Meeting with Ambassador Baucus” at “the U.S. Embassy” at 2PM on Feb. 5.
