The emails were between Hunter Biden and associates who are involved in his firm, Rosemont Seneca’s joint venture with Chinese investment firms Bohai Capital and BHR.
Hunter held a 10% stake in BHR as recently as last year. This has been acknowledged by The White House. Hunter’s attorney told the New York times in November 2021 that Hunter has since divested his stake.
In an email dated January 3rd 2017, which was sent to both Hunter Biden and his business associates Devon Archer and Jim Bulger, CEO of Jonathan Li writes; “Gentlmen (sic), please find the attached resume of my son Chris Li. He is applying the following colleges for this year.”
Li listed Brown University, Cornell University and New York University. Li goes on to attach an “updated version” of his son’s “CV” in a further email. Hunter’s associate, James Bulger, cc’ing Hunter and Archer, replies confirm they have “received the updated version of the CV.”
“Let’s see how we can be helpful here to Chris,” Bulger wrote. Several weeks later, on February 18th 2017, Eric Schwerin, who served as President of Rosemount Seneca, replied to LI.
“Jonathan, Hunter asked me to send you a copy of the recommendation letter that he asked his father to write on behalf of Christopher for Brown University.” Schwerin wrote.
Biden has vehemently denied discussing Hunter’s business ventures with him.
