James "Jimmy" Biden (born June 1949) is the younger brother of Joe Biden. James is a former nightclub owner, owned a lobbyist firm, acquired the company Paradigm Global Advisors with nephew Hunter Biden. In 2010, James Biden joined the company HillStone International. In 2011, HillStone International landed a $1.5 billion contract to build housing in Iraq after the US destruction of civilian infrastructure. His dealings with several medical companies have led to allegations that he engaged in fraud.

In September 2023, House Oversight Committee chair Rep. Comer issued subpoenas for Hunter and James Biden’s bank records amid and the impeachment inquiry into Joe Biden.[1]

Paradigm Global Advisors

Politico reported on Biden family corruption on August 2, 2019:

The day the Bidens took over Paradigm Global Advisors was a memorable one.

In the late summer of 2006 Joe Biden’s son Hunter and Joe’s younger brother, James, purchased the firm. On their first day on the job, they showed up with Joe’s other son, Beau, and two large men and ordered the hedge fund’s chief of compliance to fire its president, according to a Paradigm executive who was present.

After the firing, the two large men escorted the fund’s president out of the firm’s midtown Manhattan office, and James Biden laid out his vision for the fund’s future. “Don’t worry about investors,” he said, according to the executive, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, citing fear of retaliation. “We've got people all around the world who want to invest in Joe Biden.”

At the time, the senator was just months away from both assuming the chairmanship of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee and launching his second presidential bid. According to the executive, James Biden made it clear he viewed the fund as a way to take money from rich foreigners who could not legally give money to his older brother or his campaign account. “We've got investors lined up in a line of 747s filled with cash ready to invest in this company,” the executive remembers James Biden saying.[2]

CEFC China Energy had assets of $263 billion in 2015. Its chairman, Ye Jianming, was arrested by the CCP in February 2018 and has never been heard from since. An associate of Ye, Patrick Ho, was arrested in New York for bribing UN and African officials. Hunter Biden was paid $1 million to represent Ho.

Ye and his associate Gongwen Dong (aka "Kevin"), applied to a bank and opened credit lines for a business named Hudson West III LLC, giving Hunter, Joe Biden's brother James Biden (and James’ wife Sarah Biden), credit cards which the Bidens used to buy extravagant items. The Senate report details a series of transfers and transactions worth millions of US dollars between CEFC, Hudson West and the Bidens.

Sinohawk Holdings

The Smoking Gun email.[3]

Among the second set of documents released by the New York Post were emails involving two different business schemes Hunter Biden organized with the Chairman of the Chinese energy company CEFC.[4] One email, dated May 13, 2017, and obtained by Fox News, includes a discussion of 'remuneration packages' for six people in a business deal with the Chinese energy firm. The email appeared to identify Hunter Biden as 'Chair/ Vice Chair depending on an agreement with CEFC,' in a reference to CEFC China Energy. The email includes a note that “Hunter has some office expectations he will elaborate.” A proposed equity split references “20” for “H” and “10 held by H for the big guy?”[5] The email was written by James Gilliar, directed to another man named Tony Bobulinski and a copy sent to Hunter Biden. Bobulinski verified the email as authentic, sent to him by Gilliar, and it is an accurate representation of the deal between Hunter Biden and his Chinese business partner,[6] Ye Jian Ming (alternate spelling Ye Jianming), Chairman of CEFC.[7] The business was eventually named “Sinohawk Holdings”.[8]

According to the terms of the email, the agreed-upon “remuneration” for Hunter Biden and Bobulinski was to be $850,000 each. James Gilliar was to get $500,000, and Rob Walker was to get $500,000.

The email also sets forth the “equity” stake of various people, including 20% for Hunter, 10% for “James Biden”, Joe’s brother, and 10% “held by H for the big guy.”[9] Mr. Bobulinski says he was recruited by Hunter Biden and James Gilliar to be CEO of the partnership between the Biden family members, Joe, Jim, Hunter, and CEFC Chairman Ye Jian Ming. Bobulinski said that Hunter withdrew money from Sinohawk as fast as it was deposited in the bank account by the Chinese. The Chinese money wasn’t intended to purchase anything, it was just a way to funnel cash to the Biden family members.

Owasco and Hudson West

$200,000 direct payment to Joe Biden.[10]

14 August 2017 to 3 August 2018. Hunter Biden moved large sums of money from his firm, Owasco, to James Biden’s consulting firm, the Lion Hall Group. Owasco sent 20 wires totaling $1,398,999 to the Lion Hall Group, a consulting firm that lists James Biden and his wife, Sara Biden, on the bank account. This transaction was identified for potential criminal financial activity. These transfers began less than one week after CEFC Infrastructure Investment wired $5 million to Hudson West III and Hudson West III sent its first payment of $400,000 to Owasco. Most of the payments from Owasco to the Lion Hall Group had vague notes in the memo lines, 15 of which simply indicated that they were for further credit to James Biden; however, the memo line for one of the payments read “HW3,” which indicates some of the transferred money could be from Hudson West III. When the bank contacted Sara Biden regarding the overall wire activity, she stated that the Lion Hall Group and Owasco provide international and business consulting and that the Lion Hall Group was assisting Owasco with an international client through a contract that had since terminated. Sara Biden told the bank that she would not provide any supporting documentation, and she also refused to provide additional information to more clearly explain the activity. Consequently, the bank submitted the account for closure.

  • 17 August. Just days after the first transfer from Hunter Biden's Owasco PC to Jim Biden's The Lion Hall Group, it was publicly announced that Ye Jian Ming’s CEFC Energy was in talks to purchase a stake in the Russian state-owned energy company Rosneft.[11] Christopher Wray represented Rosneft interests in the United States.[12] Biden family interests in partnership with CEFC's acquisition of a stake in Rosneft would be a violation of the Magnitsky Act.
  • Around the same time, there were also outgoing wires from Hudson West III to various accounts associated with Ye and Gongwen, including CEFC Infrastructure Investment, Coldharbour Capital (located at Gongwen Dong’s address), Gongwen’s personal bank account, a separate bank account for Hudson West V, and Bo Jian Group Investment Company (a company with a complex ownership structure controlled by Ye Jian Ming in which Gongwen Dong is also reportedly a part owner). These transactions and the transacting entities begin to paint a mosaic of the complex corporate structure that existed between entities linked to Hunter Biden and his associates and family and Chinese companies linked to the Communist government.
  • Senate investigators were able to confirm that Hunter Biden’s associate, Gongwen Dong, is connected to seven of the eight numbered Hudson West corporate entities. The exception is Hudson West II; however, that entity shares a permanent mailing address with Hudson West V, which has a bank account that is connected to Gongwen. Thus, it appears that Hudson West II is most likely connected to him. The Hudson West entities are important entities in the flow of funds among and between Ye, Gongwen, and Hunter Biden and his associates. There are frequent fund transfers across these numbered Hudson West entities, and transactions involving all eight have been identified for potential criminal financial activity. For example, Hudson West III was not the only Hudson West entity associated with CEFC, Ye Jian Ming’s business. According to reporting, Hudson West V maintains an ownership interest in CEFC Infrastructure Investment, a subsidiary of CEFC. By extension, this means Hudson West V is linked to Ye Jian Ming and the aforementioned $5 million payment to Hudson West III on 8 August 2017. Hudson West V also reportedly had ownership in a series of other companies: Hudson West Partners LLC, Hudson West Aggregator LLC, Hudson West VIII LLC, and Hudson West VII LLC which begins to show the complex corporate structure at play.
  • 8 September. CEFC acquired a 14 percent stake for US$ 9 billion in the Russian state-run oil giant Rosneft.[13]
  • Hunter Biden and Gongwen Dong, a Chinese national who executed transactions for limited liability companies controlled by Ye Jian Ming, applied to a bank and opened a line of credit under the business name Hudson West III LLC (Hudson West III).[14] Hunter Biden, James Biden, and James Biden’s wife, Sara Biden, were all authorized users of credit cards associated with the account. The Bidens subsequently used the credit cards they opened to purchase $101,291.46 worth of extravagant items, including airline tickets and multiple items at Apple Inc. stores, pharmacies, hotels and restaurants. The cards were collateralized by transferring $99,000 from a Hudson West III account to a separate account, where the funds were held until the cards were closed. The transaction was identified for potential financial criminal activity.

Senate investigation

Senate Homeland Security investigators concluded,

The records acquired by the Committees show that Hunter Biden and his family were involved in a vast financial network that connected them to foreign nationals and foreign governments across the globe. Hunter Biden and Archer, in particular, formed significant and consistent financial relationships with the corrupt oligarch Mykola Zlochevsky during their time working for Burisma and their firms made millions of dollars from that association while Joe Biden was vice president and the public face of the Obama administration’s Ukraine policy. Rosemont Seneca Thornton, an investment firm co-founded by Hunter Biden, received $3.5 million in a wire transfer from Elena Baturina, who allegedly received illegal construction contracts from her husband, the former mayor of Moscow. Moreover, Archer’s apparent receipt of money for a car from Kenges Rakishev of Kazakhstan while Vice President Biden was in Kyiv is especially concerning in light of the timing. And finally, Biden and Archer’s work with Chinese nationals connected to the Communist regime illustrate the deep financial connections that accelerated while his father was vice president and continued after he left office.

Biden and Archer found willing partners in Chinese nationals connected to the Communist regime. Their work in China began at least in 2009, with the creation of Rosemont Seneca Partners with Heinz, Secretary of State John Kerry’s stepson. Then, several years later, Biden and Archer formed BHR with Bohai Capital and received their business license approval in China shortly after Biden visited China with his father, Vice President Biden.

Hunter Biden’s connections and financial associations appear to have accelerated significantly after he associated himself with Ye Jianming, who had deep connections with the Communist regime and PLA. However, that didn’t seem to have any impact on Hunter Biden, who made millions from the relationship. Indeed, Hunter Biden and his family, to include James and Sara Biden, associated with other Chinese nationals such as Gongwen Dong. In one case, the three of them went on a $100,000 global spending spree after Gongwen Dong and Hunter Biden opened a joint account. In addition, Hunter Biden received millions of dollars over a period of years from Gongwen Dong’s companies. According to records acquired by the Committees, many of these transactions involved potential criminal financial activity.[15]
