Report: Joe Biden Agreed to Pay Hunter’s Legal Bills Tied to Chinese Business Deal
President Joe Biden’s repeated claims that he never has discussed son Hunter Biden’s business with him have come into question after an email surfaced Tuesday, the Daily Mail reported.
The 2019 email said that the then-former vice president had agreed to cover nearly $800,000 in bills compiled ahead of the 2020 presidential election, the Daily Mail reported. Those bills included legal fees tied to Hunter’s controversial overseas business dealings.
A spreadsheet detailing the debts was attached to the email.
The Jan. 17, 2019, email — which began with “Hello VP team” — was written by Hunter Biden’s then-personal assistant, Katie Dodge, and sent to accountant Linda Shapero, founder of the Global DEEZ firm in Leesburg, Virginia.
The email was cc’ed to Hunter Biden and Richard Ruffner, then a personal aide to Joe Biden.

“I spoke with Hunter today regarding his bills,” Dodge wrote in the email, the Daily Mail reported. “It is my understanding that Hunt’s dad will cover these bills in the short-term as Hunter transitions in his career.”
The spreadsheet included a debt of more than $130,000 in legal fees due “ASAP” to the law firm of Faegre Baker Daniels, with $28,382 owed for “BHR Restructuring.”
That appeared to be a reference to the Chinese company Bohai Harvest RST (Shanghai) Equity Investment Fund Management, in which Hunter Biden held a 10 % stake through a company called Skaneateles LLC. Continue reading at Newsmax.
