John Solomon: Congress Secures First Hunter Biden Whistleblowers For Investigation
Whistleblower alleges Hunter Biden attempted ‘shady business dealings’ with China
Rep. Comer says Americans should be ‘outraged’ over China attempting to buy natural gas drillers
Internal company memos show Hunter Biden effort to score American LNG ports, gas deals, and drilling ventures for Beijing.
President Joe Biden boasts proudly today he is leading an “incredible transition” from fossil fuels, but just three years before he won the presidency his family worked to score billions of dollars in deals helping executives in communist China gain access to U.S. natural gas, oil and energy infrastructure, according to internal business memos and interviews with congressional investigators.
Memos obtained by Just the News from the Hudson West III LLC partnership that presidential son Hunter Biden operated with a prominent Chinese business executive named Gongwen Dong show the Biden family pursued at least 21 major deals in 2017 and 2018 for Chinese interests seeking U.S. energy assets, including liquified natural gas export terminals, LNG trade deals, drilling exploration firms, pipelines and other key energy assets.
Many of the deals targeted assets in the oil-rich Gulf Coast, including Louisiana, and aimed to help an energy-hungry China gain access to U.S. oil and gas, according to a summary memo of the 21 deals. Just the News found the memo on a Hunter Biden laptop turned over to the FBI in 2019 and corroborated its authenticity with a Biden business associate directly familiar with the deals and memos.
“Discussed both oil and LNG trading/exporting opportunities,” one memo sent to Hunter Biden read. “Our team was more interested in pursuing the LNG spread trading opportunities, due to the timing of upcoming winter peak usage season and the spiking natural gas price in China.”
That LNG deal and others like it never went forward, but Hunter Biden’s team chose to pivot in 2018 to other oil and gas deals, ranging from pipelines to drilling assets, the memo shows.
“Explore U.S. natural gas industry midstream investment opportunities (including natural gas pipeline projects with international and U.S.-based financial institutions),” the memo recommended as one of the 2018 opportunities.
Another goal, the memo stated: “Explore potential investment opportunities in the petrochemical and energy production space.”
