Hunter Biden indicates Joe Biden was the ‘big guy’ referenced in email about China business deal

Mar 1, 2024 | Political News

Hunter Biden testified before Congress Wednesday as part of the Biden impeachment inquiry, providing lawmakers with a number of damning insights into his foreign business dealings. One insight may prove especially damaging to President Joe Biden, better known to the first son's former business associates — and now the world — as “the big guy.”

Quick background

Emails discovered in the trove of unsettling materials on Hunter Biden's laptop prior to the 2020 election — strategically cast as Russian disinformation by intelligence community alumni and other Biden boosters — implicated then-Vice President Joe Biden in some of his son's shady business dealings overseas, particularly those in China and in Ukraine.

Two emails in particular prompted concerns about Joe Biden's involvement in potentially compromising schemes overseas: a 2015 email from Burisma executive Vadym Pozharsky thanking Hunter Biden for giving him an opportunity to meet and spend time with the vice president; and a May 2017 email outlining a business deal between the Biden family and a now-defunct Chinese energy company linked to the communist regime.
