"One of the people on an explosive email thread allegedly involving Hunter Biden has corroborated the veracity of the messages, which appear to outline a payout for former Vice President Joe Biden as part of a deal with [CEFC's Ye Jianming]."

Who is Ye Jianming?

To find out, it might be helpful to look back towards the end of the last election.
"FULL STORY: Glencore, Qatar Commit $3 Billion in Equity to Rosneft Stake"


"China's CEFC is everywhere this year - first it buys Glencore's stake in Rosneft; then its affiliate AnAn invests in Deripaska's EN+ and now this - Chad, CEFC China Energy deny involvement in alleged $2m bribe offer"


"Ye Jianming's CEFC has risen rapidly in energy and finance since he founded it in 2002, when he was still in his 20's."

"CEFC is no ordinary private company. Ye Jianming, the group's chairman, sponsors a pro-China think-tank with ties to military intelligence"
"Reports that Ye Jianming, chairman of CEFC China Energy Company Limited, is under investigation. Huge if true"

"SCMP now reporting, like Caixin, that Ye Jianming of CEFC is under investigation, adding that he was detained just before CNY on personal orders of Xi Jinping"
"Ye Jianming had a question for a former U.S. national security director: If Ye bought oil fields in Syria, how could he keep the U.S. from bombing them?"
Remember Glencore, whose $9b in Rosneft shares were sold to CEFC in September 2017?
"I have no contacts at Glencore, but Mr. Clinton certainly does."

"Who actually bought Rosneft? It's public record that it's Glencore. And who is the founder of Glencore? A guy named Marc Rich. So, if you wanna ask someone about Marc Rich, the Clintons are better people to ask."

Remember that story from 2019 about an unidentified foreign-government-owned company that was being fined $50k/day for not complying with a subpoena from Mueller's Special Counsel?

It was......Egypt.

"Russian spies tried to recruit [Carter Page] in 2013, and he was dismissive when [FBI] agents warned him about it. That warning even made its way back to Russian intelligence, leaving agents suspecting that Mr. Page had reported their efforts to Moscow."

"That warning even made its way back to Russian intelligence..." 🤔
Can't say I recall seeing this claim in any other articles, or govt documents...
