Kamala Harris Among Key Contacts for Biden Family Business Deal in China

  • Horse Race

By: Amy Jo Underwood

In Brief: 

An email has been released to Fox News mentioning Senator Kamala Harris, and other prominent Democrats, as key contacts for a joint venture with a Chinese energy company. No information is known about the extent of Senator Harris’ involvement, or if she was ever contacted about the business venture. 

The Background: 

According to an email released by Fox News, Jim Biden, the brother of former Vice President Joe Biden, sent an email in 2017 to Hunter Biden, Tony Bobulinski, and others.  Bobulinski, a former business partner of Hunter Biden, has gone on record stating that he had ethical concerns with how the Biden family used Joe Biden’s fame for foreign business deals. He also stated that Joe Biden is mentioned in the emails found on Hunter Biden’s laptop, and is frequently referred to as “the big guy.”

Jim Biden’s email contained a list of key contacts for a joint venture with a now-bankrupt energy firm in China. Among the contacts were Senator Kamala Harris (D-CA), Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY), Senator Amy Klobuchar (D-MN), Governor Andrew Cuomo (D-NY), and others. 

It is unknown if Kamala Harris was contacted about the joint venture prospect. The Biden campaign has yet to deny the emails found on Hunter Biden’s laptop, or the email released to Fox News. 

Notable Quotes:


“I just saw behind the Biden curtain and I grew concerned with what I saw. The Biden family aggressively leveraged the Biden family name to make millions of dollars from foreign entities even though some were from communist-controlled China.” - Tony Bobulinski,  Fox News.
