The latest Breitbart News film, My Son Hunter, is a fact-based portrayal of the first son Hunter Biden’s life of vice and corruption. This “True Fact” series will go into the details of the moments that accurately depict the Biden scion’s life, despite some artistic license taken by the film.
True Fact: Hunter Biden accepted $5 million in a contract with his Chinese business partner Patrick Ho, whom he referred to in a video on his abandoned laptop as “the f**king espionage head of China.”
Beginning at the end of 2015, Hunter Biden and Ye Jianming, Chairman and Majority Owner of CEFC China Energy Co., established a close working connection. In his best-selling book Secret Empires: How the American Political Elite Conceals Corruption and Enriches Family and Friends, Breitbart News Chief Contributing editor Peter Schweizer reported that Ye had a variety of links to Chinese military intelligence and that his corporation supplied power to China’s People’s Liberation Army.
Hunter developed a friendship with Patrick Ho through Ye, referring to him as “the fucking espionage head of China” in a phone call.
Despite having no prior exposure in the East Asian energy sector, the Biden scion made around $5 million in energy agreements through his business relationship with CEFC via Ye and Ho.
When Ho was eventually detained by the FBI in New York City in November 2017 on suspicion of bribery, his first contact from custody was to James Biden, asking for Hunter. Chinese officials kidnapped Ye in 2018.
