President Joe Biden’s brother James admitted to the FBI that the first family tried, unsuccessfully, to help a Chinese company buy key U.S. energy assets while knowing the firm’s leader was tied directly to Communist Chinese President Xi Jinping.
“James B noted (Hunter) portrayed CEFC to him as Chairman Ye was a protégé of President Xi,” FBI agents wrote in a report. Georgia Republican Rep. Austin Scott said:
“It just means it’s even worse than even I thought it was that they would go that far. If you look at some of those ports in Louisiana, and I don’t have a map in front of me, but like Port Fourchon, that area of Louisiana, just a tremendous portion of the energy that we use inside the United States comes through those hubs.
“And the idea that you would help the Chinese acquire assets in that area to give, you know, an adversary the ability to control the energy supply inside the United States, I don’t understand how much more of a traitor you could be than to do such a thing.”
And the GOP discovered that Hunter Biden referred to his father, President Biden, as “my family’s only asset”
