China Bank Sends Hunter’s Bank Records To Congressional Investigators
Was It A Not-So-Subtle Threat To “The Boss” Joe Biden?

The Washington Times reports that a Chinese-American bank supplied Senate Republicans with records showing millions of dollars flowing from Chinese companies to presidential son, Hunter Biden, and Joe’s brother James Biden, said a lawmaker spearheading an investigation of the first family.
Was this the CCP’s way of telling the President to play nice or they will destroy him? Wisconsin’s Senator Ron Johnson said that was the message being sent. ‘In my mind, it’s the Chinese government telling Joe Biden, We got the goods on you, buddy. And we’re willing to dish it up.’
Cathay Bank, which is based in Los Angeles but has offices in China, voluntarily turned over bank records requested by Sens. Ron Johnson (R-WI) and Chuck Grassley (R-IA) Every other China Bank working in the US denied the two Republicans’ requests for financial records.
Cathay Bank spokesman Ian Campbell said the allegations are false.
“Cathay Bank, a NASDAQ-listed, U.S. financial institution for over 60 years, has cooperated with the House Committee on Oversight and Accountability’s request for information. The bank intends to continue to cooperate with the committee,” he said in a statement to The Times. “Cathay Bank was founded more than sixty years ago by a United States citizen, and serves American communities as a bank with over $20 billion in assets and more than 60 branches in 9 states. Cathay Bank is neither owned by nor affiliated with the Chinese government in any way.”
But the allegations were not targeting the banks, but the financial records reported the companies paying Hunter and Uncle Jim millions of dollars as for the denied connections to the Chinese govt. That is as truthful as the rationale for a program announced by the President.
The bank records showed other payments from Hudson West III. The company sent CEFC Infrastructure, an affiliate of CEFC Energy, payments totaling more than $381,000. Gongwen Dong received roughly $123,000, and Hunter Biden’s Chinese American assistant, JiaQi Bao, was paid nearly $30,000. Coldharbour Capital LLC, a company associated with Hunter Biden’s business partner Mervyn Yan, received $318,000.
Republicans said the business deals could be softening the president’s stance against China’s creeping threats to the U.S.
The Biden/Dong relationship is not new. Please note. Dong is his real name, not a political statement
In 2000 right after the election, the Lid found a letter providing insight into the Biden/Dong relationship.
As reported in The Lid, dated September 21, 2017, Hunter Biden sent an e-mail to Cecilia Browning, the general manager of an office building called “House of Sweden,” requesting that “keys” be “made available for new office mates.”
Hunter Biden listed the “new office mates” as Joe Biden, Jill Biden, Jim Biden, and Gongwen Dong (Chairman Ye CEFC emissary). Hunter Biden also requested a sign made for his office that stated “The Biden Foundation” and “Hudson West (CEFC US).”
CEFC China Energy was a Chinese conglomerate that was among the largest energy companies in China, which paid the Biden family very generously before going out of business a couple of years ago.
CNN notes that the company “aligned itself so closely with the Chinese government that it was often hard to distinguish between the two.” But the Biden cabal
But there were connections with the Chinese govt.
There was no explanation as to why the Delaware prosecutors were slow on the uptake. They needed to push the non-cooperative banks to turn over their records.
The president’s supporters say he has been tough on China and point to his decision to limit the export of some semiconductor chips, which are critical to national security.
Republicans want the Cathay Bank records to be included in an ongoing investigation of Hunter’s tax filings.
Mr. Johnson and Mr. Grassley sent the bank records to U.S. Attorney David Weiss, Delaware’s top prosecutor. Mr. Weiss oversees a team investigating Hunter Biden on suspicion of tax crimes and false statements regarding a gun purchase.
“If you are conducting a full and complete investigation, you should already possess these records,” Mr. Johnson and Mr. Grassley wrote to Mr. Weiss in October. “In the case that you are not and do not possess these records, we suggest that you review them in detail.”
Republicans hold the House majority, which gives them control of the House Oversight Committee, which has the power to subpoena the records of other banks associated with the CCP that may have worked with Hunter, something Congress and the mainstream media have refused to investigate for over two and a half years.
