Joe Biden says he’s “confident” that son Hunter “did nothing wrong”

Wednesday morning, Joe Biden was asked by reporter Peter Doocy after a press event “are you confident that your son did nothing wrong?”

Biden offered the terse reply “I’m confident.”

Biden’s transition team earlier released a statement that Joe is “proud of his son.”

Hunter Biden is currently under federal investigation for tax dealings.

According to a new report from Fox News that broke this morning, correspondence between Hunter Biden and CEFC Chairman Ye Jianming from 2017 shows the son of Joe Biden extending “best wishes from the entire Biden family,” while urging the chairman to “quickly” send a $10 million wire to “properly fund and operate” the Biden joint venture with the now-bankrupt Chinese energy company.

The email obtained by Fox was sent on June 18, 2017, to Zhao Runlong at CEFC and Hunter asked they please “translate my letter to Chairman Ye, please extend my warmest best wishes and that I hope to see the Chairman soon.”

Hunter Biden writes:

“I hope my letter finds you well. I regret missing you on your last visit to the United States. Please accept the best wishes from the entire Biden family as well as my partners.”

He continues “We are all hoping to see you here again soon, or in Shanghai.”

Biden then tells ye “concluded the establishment of SinoHawk Holdings,” the Biden joint venture with CEFC, and said he looked “forward” to introducing him to his business associate Tony Bobulinski, who he wrote would “act as the CEO.”

“He is a very close friend of James Gilliar and the Biden family and joined our team to focus on the execution of things as a partner. He has invested capital all over the world for some of the world’s wealthiest families,” Hunter Biden added.

Biden then noted Bobulinski had “sent a request to Dong Gongwen [Gongwen Dong] and Director Zang for the funding of the $10 MM USD wire.”

He wrote “I would appreciate if you will send that quickly so we can properly fund and operate Sinohawk.”

“I am sure you have been well briefed by our dear friend Director Zang on the political and economic connections we have established in countries where you are interested in expanding during the coming months and years. I look forward to our next meeting,” he concluded.

Ye replied in an email “I am glad to hear from you! Time flies and it has been months since we met in the US. It seems that we were always on a rush when we were together.”

He added “the consensus we made last time has been materialized in a timely manner.”

Ye asked that Hunter “arrange your people to coordinate with Director Zang and Gongwen Dong for specific work.”

“I will continue to pay attention and give my support. I have arranged Director Zang and Gongwen Dong to expedite the charter capital input to SinoHawk,” Ye said.

“I look forward to meeting you in the near future and discussing our joint undertaking,” Ye added .”If there is anything I could do please do not hesitate to write to me. Please accept my best regards to you and your family.”
