A member of the U.S. Senate has confirmed that bank records show many, many links between the now-closed CEFC China Energy corporation, which was connected to the Chinese Communist Party, and the Biden family.

“Millions” of links.
The report from Just the News explains Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wis., said the records have been provided to Senate Republicans by Cathay Bank, and they are evidence of “millions of dollars” from the Chinese companies to Joe Biden’s son, Hunter.
There long have been concerns expressed that Hunter Biden, while his father was vice president and now president, set up a cottage industry of selling access.
Cited are the million-dollar payments from sources in Russia, and China, and the huge payments from a Ukrainian gas company to Hunter for his presence on the company’s board.
Now Johnson has confirmed the records from the bank affirm the Biden family links to CEFC China Energy.
“The firm reportedly gave $1 million to Hudson West III, which was a joint venture owned by Hunter Biden and Gongwen Dong, a business associate of CEFC’s founder and chairman, Ye Jianming, according to the bank records,” the report said.
Johnson said the messaging from the bank might be a little unwelcome.
“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,'” he said.
Bank records of James Biden, Joe’s brother, also were handed over.
Cathay said it is a “U.S. financial institution,” and has been cooperating with members of Congress asking for financial information.
In a statement to Just the News, the bank said, “The bank intends to continue to cooperate with the committee.”
It denied being affiliated with the Chinese government “in any way.”
