Hunter Biden bragged in a 2011 email to his former business partner Devon Archer about how a Chinese businessman who scored them a deal loved his "last name."
"Your question—‘why does Super Chair love me so much?’ is easily answered. It has nothing to do with me and everything to do with my last name," Biden wrote to Archer in September 2011, referring to businessman Che Feng who helped Biden partner with a Chinese firm. Biden's comment, which was revealed by the New York Post, appeared in an email found on his abandoned laptop.
Biden added that another reason for Feng's admiration is that Biden brings "very handsome Aryan godlike men wherever I go."
Archer, who sat on the board of Ukrainian gas company Burisma Holdings with Biden, met with the House Oversight Committee on Monday and testified that Biden called his father more than 20 times during business meetings to sell the Biden "brand."
Feng helped Hunter's company score a high-paying deal, the New York Post reported:
Feng — who was referred to as "The Super Chairman" by both Hunter and Archer — helped Biden’s firm, Rosemont Seneca Partners, and James Bulger’s Thornton Group LLC partner with Jonathan Li’s Bohai Capital and lateral launch Bohai Harvest RST, the emails indicate.
The email chain began two days earlier, when Bulger’s co-founder Michael Lin forwarded Hunter and Bulger the terms of the joint venture fund.
Lin also namechecked Feng as playing a key role in securing favorable terms for the deal.
"Good news from Jonathan after his meeting with Super Chairman in [Hong Kong]…We three’s ownership of the fund management co. 20% while Jonathan’s 10%. (Still very very good for you two and me!)," he wrote.
Hunter forwarded the terms of the deal to Archer and expressed his joy at the prospects of the deal.
"I don't believe in lottery tickets anymore, but I do believe in the super chairman," Hunter said to Archer.
Biden last week admitted in court to accepting Chinese money, despite his father President Joe Biden's repeated denials that his son profited from China.
"I started a company [in 2017] called Hudson West, your Honor, and my partner was associated with a Chinese energy company called CEFC," Hunter Biden said last week in a Delaware federal courthouse.
Biden confirmed a point made by the prosecution that he had made $664,000 from a "Chinese infrastructure investment company," according to the court transcript, reported by Fox News.
"Who was your partner?" the judge in the case asked the first son.
"I don't know how to spell his name, Yi Jianming is the chairman of that company," Hunter Biden said. Yi has disappeared since being taken into custody by Chinese officials in 2018.
The president has made repeated claims that his son did not take money from Chinese entities.
"My son has not made money in terms of this thing about, what are you talking about, China," Joe Biden said to then-president Donald Trump in an October 2020 debate.
