Newly recovered emails have now revealed a shocking scheme reportedly concoted by Hunter Biden to arraign a $120 million oil deal between a Chinese company and a top former government official from Kazakhstan.
As The Daily Mail reports:
Emails obtained by DailyMail.com show the president’s son teamed up with the former Kazakh prime minister Karim Massimov, now facing charges of high treason, to try to pull off a $120million pipeline deal after similar ventures had faced opposition from Western energy firms.
One of Hunter’s proposed Kazakh energy deals involved the State China National Offshore Oil Corporation (CNOOC), one of China’s biggest oil firms.
The company was sanctioned in 2020 and again last year for its alleged involvement in the Chinese government’s ‘coercive behavior in the South China Sea’.
Emails from Hunter’s abandoned laptop show he traveled to Beijing and Kazakhstan to forge a blockbuster oil deal between the two countries in 2014 and 2015.
Hunter’s involvement with the Chinese firm may represent a conflict of interest for President Joe Biden, whose administration imposed sanctions on the company in 2020.
