Conservative Group Targets Hunter

( – In a striking move demanding accountability for establishing secretive dealings with foreign interests to the detriment of America, a conservative legal group is actively seeking records related to Hunter Biden’s involvement in business dealings in Louisiana, particularly focusing on his collaboration with Chinese business associates.

A recent report disclosed that the America First Legal Foundation (AFL) has filed a Louisiana Public Records Act Request to obtain communications involving Democratic Governor John Bel Edwards’ office, Hunter Biden, his uncle James Biden, and Joe Biden. The request specifically targets natural gas deals that Hunter Biden pursued for the Chinese infrastructure firm CEFC through his Hudson West III joint venture with CEFC associate Gongwen Dong.

AFL’s request mentions an interview with James Biden, in which he recalled that their Chinese partners were interested in Liquified Natural Gas (LNG) deals. This included discussions about the Monkey Island deal involving an island off the coast of Louisiana. James Biden noted interactions with the Louisiana Governor’s Office about permits for this project, which was expected to be expedited but eventually did not materialize.

The request by AFL also includes inquiries into any communications involving Joe Biden’s email aliases, which he reportedly used for government purposes while serving as vice president. This follows revelations from email metadata released by the House Ways and Means Committee showing exchanges between Joe Biden and Hunter Biden’s business associate, Eric Schwerin.

The focus on these deals stems from a criminal investigation into Hunter Biden’s tax affairs and firearms possession. This inquiry is part of a broader set of documents provided to the Ways and Means Committee by IRS whistleblowers Gary Shapley and Joseph Ziegler, who claim that the Department of Justice officials provided special treatment to Hunter Biden in the ongoing investigation.

Gene Hamilton, AFL Vice President and General Counsel, emphasized the importance of exposing the Biden family’s activities, particularly those associated with the Chinese Communist Party, to ensure accountability.

The CEFC Chairman Ye Jianming, with whom Hunter Biden had dealings, was arrested on suspicion of bribery in 2018 and had links to the Chinese Communist Party. During a court proceeding, Hunter Biden admitted to partnering with Jianming in his Hudson West III venture.

Recently, Hunter Biden was indicted on nine tax-related offenses in California as part of special counsel David Weiss’ investigation. The whistleblowers view the California indictment as a validation of their testimony regarding the special treatment afforded to Hunter Biden. The indictment details that Hunter Biden made significant income from 2016-2020, including from his dealings with Chinese business associates.
