Over 150 Suspicious Hunter Biden Financial Transactions Flagged By Banks

Hunter admitted to the New Yorker in July 2019 that he had taken the 2.8 carat diamond worth approximately $10,000 – which he claims was not a bribe. But over 150 suspicious Hunter Biden financial transactions flagged by banks raise doubts over the validity of his claims.

Over 150 Suspicious Hunter Biden Financial Transactions Flagged By Banks

According to CBS News, recently discovered banking documents show that banks flagged upwards of 150 financial operations encompassing Hunter or James Biden’s global business operations as ‘concerning’ and subjected them to extra scrutiny, including some that involved substantial wire transfers.

As mentioned multiple times over the last 18 months, Joe Biden’s brother James and Hunter Biden’s international activities have aroused concerns about the CCP as well as other foreign groups having control over the Biden family.

Sen. Chuck Grassley, the leading Republican on the Judiciary Committee, told CBS News’ Catherine Herridge, “We have people with the Biden name, dealing with Chinese business people that have a relationship to the Communist Party,” “I think James Biden was very much a part of this.”

Bank records released by Republican senators this week indicate James Biden’s company, the Lion Hall Group, received payments from a Chinese-financed consulting group in 2018, before his brother Joe announced he was running for president. Grassley says that same year James Biden and the president’s son, Hunter, received monthly retainers totaling $165,000 — $100,000 to Hunter and $65,000 to James.

Grassley said his team obtained the records directly from the bank where the consulting group did business. He has spent three years investigating and described James and Hunter Biden’s business dealings as “very concerning.”

Hunter, James, and James’ wife Sara used a line of credit established between Hunter and a Chinese bank official to buy almost $100,000 in airline tickets, hotels, and food, as per a September 2020 assessment from GOP Senators.

Now, GOP officials have revealed what seems to be Hunter’s and the Chinese executive’s signatures on a 2017 credit line application.

“These records we got are the first records that have ever been made public on this issue. Nobody else has them,” said Grassley.

“I think Hunter and James Biden should not have entered into those relationships, full stop,” Robert Weissman, president of advocacy group Public Citizen, told CBS, adding, “To the extent those occurred while Joe Biden was the vice president, there’s a worry that they hope to get something direct from the Obama administration.”

Thankfully for Hunter and James, the White House is open to pardons if their overseas activities, tax concerns, or FARA standing are found to be unlawful.

Politico reported in December 2020 that the criminal probe into Hunter Biden involves possible money laundering, while CNN reported at the time that the feds were investigating a 2017 present to Hunter from CEFC China Energy Co. founder Ye Jianming.

And, as previously reported, James Biden obtained an unexpected call on his mobile phone in November 2017 from Patrick Ho, Ye Jianming’s lieutenant who was apprehended by the FBI (and now is serving a 36-month sentence for bribery and laundering), as per a December 2018 report by the New York Times. The call, according to James, was intended for Hunter.

James Biden, a financier and brother of the former vice president, was in a hotel lobby in November 2017 when he got a surprise call on his cellphone. The call was from Patrick Ho, Mr. Ye’s lieutenant. Mr. Ho, 69, was in trouble.

Federal agents who had monitored CEFC’s rise since at least the summer of 2016 had sprung into action, arresting Mr. Ho in New York on allegations that he had bribed African officials in Chad and Uganda. Days later, federal agents showed up at Mr. Ye’s luxury apartment building across from Central Park with a subpoena to interview Mr. Ye, said people familiar with the matter.

In a brief interview, James Biden said he had been surprised by Mr. Ho’s call. He said he believed it had been meant for Hunter Biden, the former vice president’s son. James Biden said he had passed on his nephew’s contact information.


Hunter admitted to the New Yorker in July 2019 that he had taken the 2.8 carat diamond worth approximately $10,000 – which he said was not a bribe – before confessing that both he and his father Joe had spoken about his business operations.

Hunter offered to use his contacts to help identify investment opportunities for Ye’s company, CEFC China Energy, in liquefied-natural-gas projects in the United States. After the dinner, Ye sent a 2.8-carat diamond to Hunter’s hotel room with a card thanking him for their meeting. “I was, like, Oh, my God,” Hunter said. (In Kathleen’s court motion, the diamond is estimated to be worth eighty thousand dollars. Hunter said he believes the value is closer to ten thousand.) When I asked him if he thought the diamond was intended as a bribe, he said no: “What would they be bribing me for? My dad wasn’t in office.”

“If I did 1/100 of what Hunter Biden did, I’d be in jail for the rest of my life.” Eric Trump previously said.
