Joe Biden’s Brother-In-Law Asked Hunter Biden To Help Him Secure A Business License In China, Emails Show

By

President Biden’s brother-in-law, John Owens, reached out to Hunter Biden in 2014 for help in securing a business license to expand his telemedicine company in China, saying it needed to be “secured very quickly,” according to emails obtained by Fox News.

Owens, who goes by Jack, emailed Hunter Biden on May 9, 2014, informing him that his companies, MediGuide America and MediGuide Insurance Services International (MISI), reached a “serious stage” in negotiations with a China-based insurance company, but said he won’t be able to “seal this deal” without a “Chinese Business License.”

“Time pressures are very tight, plus the fact that we do not yet have one has caused a slight credibility bump in the company’s mind. This all translates into a need for a Business License, and one secured very quickly,” Owens wrote. “While this might seem to be a mundane task, I have come to understand that matters such as a Business License can end up taking an inordinate amount of time…..time we just do not have.”

Owens continued by saying he would be “most appreciative of any help.” Hunter Biden replied less than a hour later and said, “Working on it-back to you ASAP.” The younger Biden then forwarded Owens’ email to Thornton Group Chairman James Bulger, the nephew of mobster Whitey Bulger and co-founder of the Thornton Group.

He also sent it to Michael Lin, a member of the Committee of 100, a New York-based advocacy group that has ties to the United Front, an influence operation of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). The Committee of 100 has also had multiple conferences sponsored by China Daily, a media outlet controlled by the CCP.

“See email below. It’s from my Uncle Jack. Is there a way we can help him expedite this? Time is of the essence here,” Hunter Biden wrote.

Bulger responded the next morning and said he would discuss with Lin how they can “help.” Three days later, Bulger sent an email to Hunter saying, “Me and Michael had a call with Jack this morning I think we have a solution for hi[s] China problem.”

“Michael and Ran are researching the regs and laws right now but our Thornton WOFE will likely be ok for Jacks company to use,” Bulger continued, likely referring to the wholly foreign-owned enterprise of the Thornton Group, the company Bulger and Lin co-founded.

A few days later, Bulger sent an email to Owens and Lin, and copied Hunter Biden, asking Owens to “give us until Monday to review a few more laws and regulations in Beijing.”

“I may have you answer a few question[s] on Monday so we can get specific with the appropriate authority’s in China,” Bulger wrote.
