Johnson and Grassley outlined the timeline of Hunter Biden’s business relationship with CEFC. This date backs to December 2015.
Hunter Biden and his Chinese business associates Ye & Gongwen formed joint ownership in Hudson West III on August 2017.
Hunter Biden’s Chinese business associate Ye is the founder of CEFC. Ye has been an integral part of the Biden family’s financial transactions regarding China. Ye is also the chairman and CEO of China Energy Fund Committee.
Johnson and Grassley remind us that CEFC was a privately owned entity before Chinese state-owned enterprises assumed control in 2018. Johnson and Grassley point out that CEFC was a private entity until Chinese state-owned enterprises took control in 2018.
Hunter Biden’s business partner Gongwen executed many transactions for Ye. Gongwen was previously chief financial officer at Radiance Property Holdings. According to reports, this firm has strong connections to the “united Front” groups that are linked to Chinese intelligence.
Through his Hudson West businesses Hunter Biden created many joint-ventures that were facilitated through CEFC. Senate investigators contend that these ventures were intended as funding streams and were not intended for other purposes than to “move cash.” Hunter co-founded Sinohawk Holdings, a joint venture with CEFC. Tony Bobulinski was his ex-business partner.
Gongwen signed an August 2, 2017 agreement with Hunter Biden that indicated that Gongwen’s company Hudson West V was owned by Hunter Biden’s Owasco P.C. Each owned half of Hudson West III.
According to the agreement, Hudson West V was responsible for contributing $5,000,000 and Owasco P.C. Owasco P.C. Johnson and Grassley provided Weiss with the agreement for review.

Northern International Capital affiliates with CEFC International, which is a Chinese company that was incorporated in China.
Johnson and Grassley stated that records prove that Hunter Biden’s Owasco P.C. was a company. Between August 14, 2017 to Aug. 3, 2019, James Biden’s Lion Hall Group received 20 wires.
Johnson and Grassley also provided additional records to Weiss. These records include Gongwen’s total of $123,319.68; Hunter’s Chinese-American assistant JiaQi Bao and Coldharbour Capital LLC. These companies were linked to Hunter Biden’s business partner Mervyn Yang. The total amount was $318,286.37
Bao, a Chinese national and graduate of a top Beijing university, was Hunter’s secretary. She then worked for the communist regime’s National Development and Reform Commission. Later, she moved to China-based investments firms that were also connected to the regime.
According to Hunter Biden’s business associate James Gilliar’s document, the corporate mission of CEFC was to “expand cooperation within the international oil economic and contribute to national developmental.” ”
Johnson and Grassley claim that the document “makes clear that CEFC” is an extension to communist Chinese government.” Citing Gilliar document, CEFC stated that CEFC was “building energy storage system and logistic system in Europe” as a way to connect China, Europe and the Middle East. This would “[serve] China’s ambitions to have international locations connected to global markets.” ”
According records, CEFC began to “establish relationships with the Biden family as early as 2016”.
Johnson and Grassley pointed out that Ye and CEFC wanted to do business in the U.S., and that their efforts were in line the communist Chinese government’s goal to “prioritize economic development” to encourage “Chinese modernization of all areas, including its armed forces.” ”
The senators stated that Hunter Biden’s connections and influence with Chinese business interests, strengthened by his father’s vice presidentship, likely appealed to Ye, who The New York Times called “[wanting] the corridors of power Washington.” They also pointed out that $100,000 was received by CEFC to the Clinton Foundation, which could have been part of their public influence campaign.
Gongwen, Hunter Biden, and Sara Biden had signed paperwork already to form their Hudson West III partnership. They then signed paperwork to open an joint line of credit together with Hunter Biden and Sara Biden and James Biden (his aunt and uncle).
Sens. Weiss was contacted. They also stated that they had “bank records showing that credit was collateralized with a $99,000 preauthorized draw from Hudson West III dated September 12, 2017 span>
