Recently uncovered emails provide evidence that Hunter Biden arranged a meeting in China’s Washington, D.C., embassy for a business acquaintance.
The emails reportedly obtained and reviewed by Fox News are independent of ones found on the laptop left at a Delaware repair shop by the president’s son.
Fox News further reported:
Hunter Biden was instrumental in helping a Rosemont Seneca Partners client and Democratic donor secure an event at the Chinese Embassy in Washington, D.C., after networking with one of the top officials at the embassy during a January 2011 luncheon hosted by then-Vice President Biden, according to emails reviewed and verified by Fox News Digital.
Those emails show that Hunter and his former business partner, Eric Schwerin, helped Marvin Lang, the managing director of Guardian Realty in Maryland, plan a dinner with the Chinese Embassy’s minister, Deng Hongbo, on April 28, 2011, which was later touted on China’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs website.
Planning for the event appears to have started in December 2010 after Lang, who has donated tens of thousands of dollars to Democrats, emailed Hunter thanking him for meeting him for lunch and saying he was “excited” to form a “long relationship” with Rosemont, Hunter and Schwerin’s now-defunct investment firm.
After some back-and-forth discussion between Hunter, Schwerin and Lang about possible venues for the event, Hunter emailed Schwerin on Jan. 12, 2011, saying, “Marvin wants to know where we are in on finding space for the dinner– Chinese embassy is his #1 choice.”
One week later, Schwerin sent an email to Lang that cc’d Hunter, saying Hunter had a lunch that included the “number three official” at the Chinese Embassy and that he could be “helpful” in securing the location for the Guardian Realty dinner.
“[I] just talked to Hunter and he said he sat with the number three official at the Embassy today at lunch and has contact information to follow up after the [Chinese] President has left the U.S.,” Schwerin wrote. “Hunter’s said his contact will be helpful, but the Minister won’t be able to focus on this until after the delegation has left at the end of the week. Sounds like this is the right contact though.”
Based on emails and news articles reviewed by Fox News Digital, the lunch that Schwerin is referring to in the email was the luncheon that then-Vice President Biden and then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton hosted for Hu Jintao, China’s president at the time, in the State Department’s Benjamin Franklin Room on Jan. 19, 2011.
One of the emails that Schwerin sent to Hunter after midnight on the day of the luncheon said that Hunter was sitting at the same table as Ron Klain, who was the chief of staff for Vice President Biden until the end of January 2011 and is currently Biden’s chief of staff.
On Jan. 28, 2011, Zhou Jingxing, counselor and deputy director at the Chinese Embassy, responded to Hunter Biden’s email regarding his correspondence with “Minister Yang,” which appears to be referring to Yang Jiechi, who served as foreign minister from 2007 until 2013. Jiechi, who has been a member of the Chinese Communist Party since 1971, was elevated in 2017 to the Politburo, making him among the most influential and powerful officials in all of China. The Chinese Embassy did not respond to multiple Fox News Digital requests for comment on this.
