(ReclaimingAmerica.net) – Hunter Biden has received massive sums of money from abroad, including Communist China, his lawyer Chris Clark admitted during Wednesday’s court hearing in Wilmington, Delaware.
The much-anticipated hearing saw Hunter’s probation-only plea deal on tax and gun crimes fall apart over bickering between his defense and the prosecution and eventual rejection by US District Judge Maryellen Noreika.
Under the plea deal, Hunter Biden was supposed to plead guilty to two misdemeanor charges for not paying taxes over income in 2017 and 2018. However, as the agreement collapsed, he pleaded not guilty.
During the three-hour court hearing, Clark confirmed that in 2017 his client received $664,000 from CEFC China Energy Co., a now-defunct energy company connected with the ruling Chinese Communist Party and the Chinese intelligence services.
“During calendar year 2017, Biden earned substantial income, including: just under $1 million from a company he formed with the CEO of a Chinese business conglomerate [BHR Partners]; $666,666 from his domestic business interests; approximately $664,000 from a Chinese infrastructure investment company[CEFC],” Clark said, according to a court transcript obtained by nonprofit research group Marco Polo, as cited by Breitbart News.
The first son also received income from other business dealings the same year, including $500,000 in director’s fees from his ventures with Burisma Holdings.
Also defunct today, Burisma was owned by now-wanted pro-Russian Ukrainian oligarch Mykola Zlochevsky, who told an FBI informant that he had bribed Joe and Hunter Biden with $5 million each.
“From 2017 to 12 2019, he served on the board of a Ukrainian energy company and a Chinese private equity fund. He further negotiated and executed contracts for business and legal services that paid millions of dollars of compensation to him and/or his domestic corporations, Owasco, PC and Owasco, LLC,” Hunter Biden’s lawyer said regarding his client.
“Through at least early 2017, he also was employed by a prestigious multi-national law firm in an ‘of counsel’ capacity. For this work, he earned substantial income, totaling more than $2.3 million in 2017 and $2.1 million in 2018,” Clark added.
He disclosed further that in 2017, the first son also received “$70,000 relating to a Romanian business and $48,000 from the multi-national law firm.”
Clark’s revelations contradict Joe Biden’s allegation that Hunter never got money from Communist China.
“Hunter Biden’s business associate sent over a million dollars to three of your family members. Any reaction to that?” a reporter asked the president in March.
“That’s not true,” the president said.
