Emails from Hunter Biden’s laptop fill in gaps in the timeline of his partnership with CEFC China Energy, a mysterious Chinese energy conglomerate ensnared in bribery investigations and linked to Chinese military intelligence.

In October 2015, a consultant working on behalf of the Chinese energy conglomerate CEFC made an intriguing pitch to Hunter Biden, the son of the then-vice president.
The consultant said that CEFC, one of China’s largest private energy firms, wanted to make a contribution to a nonprofit organization that Biden chaired, according to emails obtained by the Daily Caller News Foundation. What’s more, CEFC also wanted to explore investing up to $100 million with an asset management firm with links to Biden.
While Biden’s relationship with CEFC has been widely explored in the media amid revelations that he is the target of a federal investigation, little is known about how the son of the future president first started his partnership with the company.
The email pitch to Biden has not been previously reported.
