U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Oshkosh ) joined U.S. Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) on the Senate floor Tuesday for the second day to discuss their investigation into “Biden Inc.” and the criminal behavior of Biden family associates.
The senators called on the media and their Democrat colleagues to consider the implications the Biden family’s vast web of foreign financial entanglements have on the administration’s foreign policy and potential risks to national security. In 2020, then-presidential candidate Joe Biden, father of problem child Hunter, declared “there is no controversy about [Hunter Biden.” Much of the corporate media believed him, either ignoring mounting evidence about Hunter’s troubling entanglements, or brushing over them.
Johnson and Grassley have taken their case directly to the Senate, and the American people.
Here is a portion of Johnson’s latest speech:
As my colleague, the senior Senator from Iowa, has shown, Hunter Biden and James Biden (Hunter’s uncle) received millions of dollars from companies connected to the communist Chinese regime. But, frankly, it’s worse than that. These companies were effectively an arm of the Chinese Government.
This isn’t Russian disinformation. These are hard facts backed up by bank records of actual financial transactions that prove just how connected the Bidens were, and now how compromised President Biden probably is.
I’ll use this series of transactions to prove my point.
This is a bank record showing a one million dollar wire transfer into the account of Hudson West Three from CEFC on November 2, 2017.
As Senator Grassley and I have already established, CEFC is effectively an arm of the communist Chinese regime.
It’s also important to note that at the time of this transfer, in November 2017, Hunter Biden was already invested in and providing management for Hudson West Three.
So a company that was effectively an arm of the Chinese government transferred one million dollars in November 2017 to a company that Hunter Biden is managing and is invested in.
Now, let’s bring up the second record. Focus on the one million dollar wire out on March 22, 2018.
Again, this is a record from Hudson West Three’s bank account. Like the previous record, this is showing the transfer of one million dollars, but this time the money is being transferred out of Hudson West Three and to Owasco, another one of Hunter Biden’s firms. This transfer took place on March 22, 2018, a little less than five months after the one million dollar transfer from CEFC to Hudson West Three.
Hunter is transferring one million dollars between two firms he manages and has ownership in. So what is the purpose of these two – one million dollar transfers?
This next record seems to answer that question.
This record shows Owasco’s receipt of the March 22, 2018 one million dollar transfer. It also shows what the transfer is for on the OBI line. OBI is an abbreviation for Originating Beneficiary Information. In this case, the OBI indicates the transfer is being made for “Dr. Patrick Ho Chi Ping Representation.”
So, to recap: on November 2, 2017 Patrick Ho’s company CEFC wired one million dollars to Hunter Biden’s company, Hudson West Three. On March 22, 2018, Hudson West Three wired one million dollars to Owasco, another Hunter Biden company. The bank record clearly states the one million dollar payment was being made for the purpose of representing Patrick Ho.
Represent him for what?
Here’s where things get interesting. We know that Patrick Ho was arrested by U.S. authorities in November 2017 for international bribery and money laundering charges. Keep in mind that this arrest occurred in the same month that Patrick Ho’s company, CEFC, is wiring one million dollars to Hunter Biden’s company, Hudson West Three.
According to the Department of Justice “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 in multiple sectors, including oil, gas, and banking.”
Crimes for which he was eventually convicted and sent to federal prison.
So, the company that Patrick Ho was making bribes for sends one million dollars to a company Hunter Biden manages and is invested in. That company in turn transfers a million dollars to another Hunter Biden company for the purpose of representing Patrick Ho, who was eventually convicted of international bribery and money laundering.
And guess what Ho did around the same time he was arrested by the FBI for corruption and bribery.
He contacted James Biden. Ho’s decision to call the Biden family around the same time he got arrested is revealing, particularly in light of the fact that the same month a million dollars just happened to be transferred to Hunter Biden’s company.
Hunter Biden isn’t a criminal defense attorney. Patrick Ho was charged and convicted for bribery and related federal offenses. So what kind of representation was Patrick Ho’s company paying Hunter Biden’s firm to provide? Were they paying his firm for its legal expertise, or for Hunter’s political connections?
