According to the latest emails from Hunter Biden’s “laptop from hell,” he attempted to strike a “forever” business deal with China National Offshore Oil Corp, a state-owned energy company later sanctioned by President Donald Trump due to its connections to China’s People’s Liberation Army. The potential deal would’ve involved the former Prime Minister of Kazakhstan Karim Massimov, who was arrested on suspicion of treason last month.
The emails were published earlier this week by the Daily Mail.
According to the New York Post:
The emails date to April 2014, when Biden’s dad, President Biden, was vice president and about a year before father and son apparently posed for a photo with the Kazakhstani official, Karim Massimov, in a Washington, DC, restaurant.
The correspondence shows Hunter Biden and then-business partner Devon Archer — who has since cooperated in a tax probe of the first son — discussing an offer to help find “investment opportunities” for the China National Offshore Oil Corp.
That same month, both men were appointed to the board of the Ukrainian energy company Burisma Holdings — which paid Biden as much as $1 million a year — and Archer suggested that a deal involving the two overseas firms would set them up for life.
“If we can connect the dots here between CNOOC and Bursima we can do only that, forever,” Archer wrote on April 8, 2014.
Less than 10 minutes later, Biden responded: “Thinking the same thing, fraught with many land mines- but…”
“Many…don’t even know if we could pull it off but it’s a major option,” Archer wrote back.
Senators Chuck Grassley and Ron Johnson, who have been investigating Hunter’s business dealings, have accused the Secret Service of improperly redacting his travel records, specifically alleging the documents they received “do not show whether [Secret Service] personnel or Hunter Biden traveled to Kazakhstan in May or June 2014.”
The New York Post first reported on Hunter’s business dealings in Kazakhstan in 2020, pointing out that Hunter worked for Kazakh oligarch Kenes Rakishev between 2012-2014, who was close to the then-President Nursultan Nazarbayev. Emails reportedly prove that “Hunter [made] contact with Rakishev and attempting to facilitate investment for his cash in New York, Washington DC and a Nevada mining company. Through his connections, emails show Hunter Biden successfully engineered a $1 million investment from Rakishev to filmmaker Alexandra Forbes Kerry — the daughter of ex-Sen. and former Democratic presidential nominee John Kerry.”
