As troubles grow deeper for the First Son, Hunter Biden’s dealings with China have now been linked to the nephew of notorious convicted mobster Whitey Bulger!
It has come to light that James “Whitey” Bulger’s nephew, Jim Bulger, was a business associate of Hunter Biden, and according to emails obtained and reviewed by Fox News, the mobster’s relative appears to have played a key role in a number of Hunter Biden’s Chinese business ventures.
Whitey Bulger was a notorious Boston crime boss who became one of the nation’s most-wanted fugitives after fleeing Boston in late 1994. He was captured in 2011. Bulger was serving a life sentence for 11 murders and other crimes when he died in prison in October 2018.
In addition to being Whitey’s nephew, Jim Bulger is the son of William “Billy” Bulger, who served as president of the Massachusetts State Senate for eight years. Billy Bulger was an ally of John Kerry when he served in the Senate. Kerry’s stepson, Christopher Heinz, co-founded Rosemont Seneca with Hunter Biden and Devon Archer.
Jim Bulger served as the chairman of Boston-based Thornton Group LLC— a firm that joined forces with Hunter Biden’s Rosemont Seneca to launch its joint-venture with Chinese investment firm Bohai Capital to create BHR Partners. BHR Partners is controlled by Bank of China Limited.
One of the emails obtained and verified by Fox, dated Jan. 27, 2014, with the subject line, “Meeting with Chinese Ambassador,” shows Bulger suggesting himself, Hunter Biden, and his Rosemont Seneca co-founder Devon Archer “meet with the Chinese ambassador in DC to talk about the fund.”
Bulger forwards an email from his associate, Mike Leonard of Thornton Group.
“Please read the document Lenny sent me today; you will find it below,” Bulger writes to Biden and Archer. “A US Embassy staffer met with the former CEO of the Bahai Fund in 2008 and wrote up a report on the meeting.”
Bulger writes that it is “pretty interesting that someone at the Embassy in Beijing would be interested in what the domestic Bohai PE Fund was up to.”
“Thought you guys should see this,” Bulger writes. “I still believe a meeting early next week with the Ambassador if possible would be best, hope this has not caused to[sic] much of an a** ache.”
It is unclear if the meeting between Biden, Bulger, Archer and the Chinese ambassador ever took place. Joe Biden was serving as vice president of the United States at the time of the meeting request.
Another email, this one dated May 23, 2014, shows Bulger writing to Hunter Biden and Archer.
“Gentlemen, during the weekly BHR call last night, Lindsay informed the whole China team, excluding Jonathan, about the message you both conveyed during the morning call with Lindsay,” he wrote. “She was very clear to all on the phone that the signing of an investment contract with Gouxin or BOC or PICC is task number 1.”
BOC is likely referring to the Bank of China. PICC is likely referring to the People’s Insurance Company of China.
Bulger continues to say that he was asked to discuss “the need for a contracted Chinese anchor investor.”
In that email, Bulger also suggests Biden and Archer discuss “high-level research” with another associate from Thornton, Mike Leonard, on the “KAZ/Sino energy business” so that they “both can review.”
And these are just a few examples. There were many more emails obtained by Fox between Bulger and Hunter that clearly showed that the younger Biden saw Bulger as a key business partner throughout his dealings with foreign governments and other personal and professional business matters.
One in particular shows that Hunter was well aware that his go-to business partner was the blood relative of an infamous mobster.
A 2011 email obtained by Fox shows one of Hunter’s business associates forwarding a news article of Whitey Bulger’s 2011 arrest to Hunter, his Rosemont Senece co-founder Devon Archer and Eric Schwerin, with the subject line: “Jim’s uncle….”
Hunter has been under federal investigation for his “tax affairs” since 2018, according to a source familiar with the matter.
Fox News first reported in December 2020 that Biden was a subject/target of the grand jury investigation, a well-placed government source told Fox News. According to the source, a “target” means that there is a “high probability that person committed a crime,” while a “subject” is someone you “don’t know for sure” has committed a crime.”
