(Mark Pellin, Headline USA) Another brick has crumbled in the wall that a leftist media and political cronies have for years tried to build around President Joe Biden, with steadfast claims that he never knew anything about his wayward son Hunter Biden’s business dealings or interacted with any of his business partners.
Damning emails reveal that then-president elect Joe Biden was considered by his son, Hunter, to be “office mates” with his Chinese business partner.
The emails show that Hunter Biden had asked the manager of his Washington, D.C., office building to make keys for his “office mates,” Joe Biden and Gongwen Dong, who he said was the “emissary” for the chairman of the Chinese energy conglomerate CEFC, according to the Daily Caller.
“Please have keys made available for new office mates,” Hunter Biden wrote in the email. The office mates included Joe Biden, his stepmother Jill Biden, his uncle Jim Biden and Gongwen Dong.
Hunter Biden is currently under federal investigation for tax fraud and money laundering tied in part to his shady dealings with CEFC.
The “office mates” relationship becomes increasingly relevant with a grand jury asking questions about the identity of “the big guy” referenced in other emails from Hunter Biden’s laptop.
In one email from a potential investor in the Chinese scheme, a “provisional” business deal with CEFC references “10 held by H for the big guy,” implying 10% of any loot reaped from the venture.
In other non-association with any of Hunter Biden’s collaborators, emails showed that Joe Biden wrote a college recommendation letter for the son of a Chinese executive tied to Hunter Biden.
2013: Joe met with Hunter’s Chinese business partner Li. 10 days later, Hunter inked a $1.5B deal with Chinese execs.
2017: Joe wrote a rec for Li’s son.
If you still don’t think “big guy” Joe discussed Hunter’s dealings, I’ve got a bridge to sell you.https://t.co/DVvYG6BlTx

The White House, already struggling to stay afloat in a tsunami of damaging revelations about the sleaze and corruption swamping his crack-addict son, was left once again stumbling for answers.
It started with White House mouthpiece Jen Psaki floundering to explain what was behind that recommendation letter. Psaki was equal parts shaky and testy when also trying to explain the “office mates” situation.

Doocy: “There’s evidence that Biden was once office mates with Hunter and his brother Jim.”
Psaki: “That is not accurate.”
Doocy: “So when Hunter Biden is emailing a landlord ‘please have keys made for office mates Joe Biden and Jim Biden.”

That type of obfuscating can only go so far, with more attention being paid to “the big guy.”
“I get that there’s spin, but this is not a complex one,” former Utah US Attorney Brett Tolman told the Washington Post.
“Conspiracy is a standalone crime in our country, and you’ve certainly got enough to present to the grand jury that there’s a conspiracy among Joe, [brother] James and Hunter to bring in money, to not declare that money, to not pay taxes on that money,” he said.
“And to do so from a country like China, it’s not just red flags — there are potential crimes being committed.”
