(trendingpoliticsnews) – On Tuesday, text messages emerged showing Hunter Biden, son of Joe Biden, requesting $5 million payments from a senior official of a Chinese energy company with ties to the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). The Oversight Committee of the U.S. House of Representatives revealed the evidence via a series of tweets earlier today.
In a WhatsApp exchange dated August 3, 2017, Hunter Biden appears to communicate with CEFC associate Gongwen Dong, also known as Kevin. Hunter Biden writes, “The Biden’s are the best I know at doing exactly what the Chairman wants from this [partnership].”
“Chairman” refers to Ye Jianming, a Chinese billionaire with connections to a CCP-intelligence gathering agency. Ye is a notable figurehead in China, having once expressed that CEFC China’s vision “is to obtain overseas resources and serve the national strategy,” suggesting an intent to expand China’s reach and influence globally.
CEFC, the company in question, is a Chinese energy conglomerate with known links to the Chinese Communist Party. Astonishingly, the very next day after the text exchange, one of Hunter Biden’s shell companies, OWASCO PC, received a $100,000 payment from CEFC.

The Oversight Committee has argued that this recent development further bolsters the claim that the Bidens put China and their interests before America. The tweets state: “As more facts come to light, it becomes even more evident that the Bidens put China and their interests first and America last.”

Ye stated that that CEFC China’s vision "is to obtain overseas resources and serve the national strategy.”
He wanted to expand China’s reach and influence around the world.
The allegations against Hunter Biden have been a point of contention for some time now, with the President’s opponents alleging that he was privy to and possibly involved in his son’s business deals. These claims have been fueled by some purported evidence and have led to calls for a more thorough investigation into the matter.
On Monday, Joe Biden finally broke his silence on the ongoing allegations concerning his son, Hunter Biden. When asked whether he had lied about his discussions with his son regarding business deals, the President responded with a simple yet firm, “No.”
Critics and investigators have been pressing for answers on whether the President had prior knowledge of or involvement in his son’s business transactions. In previous interviews and public statements, Joe has asserted that he had never spoken to his son about his overseas business dealings. However, these assertions have been challenged recently, leading to a clamor for clarification from the President himself.
“Did you lie about never speaking to Hunter about his business dealings?” Fox News’ Jacqui Heinrich asked.
“No,” Biden responded.

This past Thursday, allegations were raised by whistleblowers regarding the direct interference of the Biden Department of Justice (DOJ) in the criminal investigation involving Hunter Biden. They claimed the DOJ was involved in recurring unjustified delays, a lack of transparency, and threats from the Defense Council to “delay, divulge, and deny” the investigation.
Rep. Jason Smith (R-MO) reported that the U.S. Attorney of Delaware, David Weiss, had been denied the opportunity to bring charges against Hunter Biden in both 2022 and 2023. Smith cited whistleblowers stating the DOJ was intervening and overstepping in the investigation despite a clear case for tax liability on Hunter Biden’s payments.
IRS investigators were reportedly internally hindered, facing issues such as a lack of U.S. Attorney independence, recurring unjustified delays, unusual actions outside the normal course of any investigation, a lack of transparency across the investigation and prosecution teams, and bullying and threats from the Defense Council.
Smith also revealed that U.S. Attorney Leslie Wolf allegedly told IRS investigators that a search warrant for evidence would not be approved if the evidence was to be found in the guest house of former Vice President Biden. He further reported that crucial information about the investigation was leaked to Hunter Biden’s attorneys. Specifically, when there was probable cause to search a Northern Virginia storage unit where Hunter Biden had stored files, Biden’s attorneys were alerted in advance.
According to the whistleblowers, IRS investigators faced significant internal obstacles in their investigation, despite what they described as a clear case for tax liability on the payments. The testimony further alleged a lack of U.S. Attorney independence and unusual actions outside the normal course of any investigation.
