Hunter Biden Blacked Out Near Classified Docs

OPINION:  This article contains commentary which may reflect the author’s opinion

Hunter Biden suffered blackouts from drinking and drug use while he was working with a connected Chinese businessman and living at the house where classified documents were discovered, according to author Michael Shellenberger.

Classified documents were found at President Joe Biden’s home in Wilmington, Delaware, where his son stayed during the worst of his alcoholism and drug addiction, Shellenberger told Newsmax recently.

“People say Biden’s mishandling of classified documents wasn’t as bad as [President Donald] Trump’s, but we now know Hunter Biden was just a feet away from them — and frequently intoxicated — during a time he was taking money from men tied to Chinese military intelligence,” Shellenberger tweeted Wednesday.

More media reports confirmed that the Biden family is full of complex criminal acts.

“While living at the house in 2017-18, Hunter was receiving millions of dollars from a top Chinese businessman connected to the Chinese Communist Party”, investigative journalist Peter Schweizer told Shellenberger.

“There’s no evidence that Hunter Biden accessed the documents, but — God forbid — the opportunity existed for him to do so,” said Schweizer, who has probed the Bidens’ Chinese connections.

The Washington Examiner reported that the businessman in question was Patrick Ho, who had extensive ties to Chinese military intelligence.

“After Ho is arrested in late 2017, the first phone call he makes is to James Biden, the president’s brother, because he’s looking for Hunter,” Schweizer told Shellenberger.

According to a Department of Justice press release about Patrick Ho:

Patrick Ho, Former Head Of Organization Backed By Chinese Energy Conglomerate, Sentenced To 3 Years In Prison For International Bribery And Money Laundering Offenses:

Ho was imprisoned for his role in a multi-year, multimillion-dollar scheme to bribe top officials of Chad and Uganda in exchange for business advantages for CEFC China Energy Company Limited (“CEFC China”).  HO was convicted of violations of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (“FCPA”), money laundering, and conspiracy to commit the same, in December 2018, after a one-week jury trial before U.S. District Judge Loretta A. Preska, who imposed today’s sentence.

Manhattan U.S. Attorney Geoffrey S. Berman stated:  “Patrick Ho schemed to bribe the leaders of Chad and Uganda in order to secure unfair business advantages for the Chinese energy company he served.  His actions were brazen, including offering the president of Chad $2 million in cash, hidden in gift boxes.  Foreign corruption undermines the fairness of international markets, erodes the public’s faith in its leaders, and is deeply unfair to the people and businesses that play by the rules.  Today’s sentence recognizes the severe harm caused by Ho’s actions.”

Assistant Attorney General Brian A. Benczkowski stated:  “Patrick Ho bribed officials at the highest levels of government in Chad and Uganda in pursuit of lucrative oil deals and other business opportunities, all while using a U.S.-based NGO to conceal his criminal scheme.  This kind of corruption undermines world markets and tilts the playing field against law-abiding companies and individuals.  The Department will continue to investigate and prosecute individuals and corporations that engage in foreign bribery.”

According to the Indictment, evidence presented at trial, the information presented in connection with sentencing, and other publicly available materials:

HO orchestrated and executed two bribery schemes to pay top officials of Chad and Uganda in exchange for business advantages for CEFC China, a Shanghai-based multibillion-dollar conglomerate that operates internationally in multiple sectors, including oil, gas, and banking.  At the center of both schemes was HO, the secretary-general of a non-governmental organization based in Hong Kong and Arlington, Virginia, and registered as a charitable entity in the United States, the China Energy Fund Committee (“CEFC NGO”), which held “Special Consultative Status” with the United Nations (“UN”) Economic and Social Council.  CEFC NGO was funded by CEFC China.

In the first scheme (the “Chad Scheme”), HO, on behalf of CEFC China, offered a $2 million cash bribe, hidden within gift boxes, to Idriss Déby, the president of Chad, in an effort to obtain valuable oil rights from the Chadian government.  In the second scheme (the “Uganda Scheme”), HO caused a $500,000 bribe to be paid, via wires transmitted through New York, New York, to an account designated by Sam Kutesa, the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Uganda, who had recently completed his term as the president of the UN General Assembly.  HO also schemed to pay a $500,000 cash bribe to Yoweri Museveni, the president of Uganda, and offered to provide both Kutesa and Museveni with additional corrupt benefits by “partnering” with them and their families in future joint ventures in Uganda.”

Consider the connections between Ho and the Biden family:

Shellenberger said there’s no evidence that Hunter “willingly or unwillingly, sober or intoxicated,” turned over any classified documents to Ho or any other Chinese official.

Shellenberger previously released portions of the Twitter Files, internal documents released by the social media platform’s new owner, Elon Musk.

The author tweeted about how the intelligence community, including the FBI, “discredited factual information about Hunter Biden’s foreign business dealings.”

Shellenberger also exposed how then-senior Twitter executives sought on Jan. 7, 2021, the day after the U.S. Capitol attack, “to create justifications to ban Trump — seek a change of policy for Trump alone, distinct from other political leaders — express no concern for the free speech or democracy implications of a ban.”
