Bao Jiaqi story getting more mysterious. She told Hunter to take the money after the spy chief was arrested and Je disappeared ("nobody will care whereabouts of nobody's money").

There's an identifier in the Hunter docs that tracks to a NY tax preparer but there's also this:
If the media did it's job, they'd call this person here and ask whether she knows Hunter, because if she doesn't, then someone's been using her identity.…
There is a guy using a fenetlaw dot com address who has dealings with Bao. That domain used to link to a law firm but not during the period when these dealings occur and not now either.
We have to bear in mind that the Bao story might not involve the people named but rather people impersonating them, perhaps using expired domains, that sort of thing. It might also be disinformation, just Chinese and not Russian.

Last night, I was given a portion of the Hunter docs. Lost track of all the things I found, so went back to make a list:

1. Compliance team of Hunter's bank flagged up his transfers
2. Hunter gave unresponsive answers
3. Uncle Jim got $82,500.00 a month from Hunter
for "international business development (more on that story tomorrow)
4. Hunter's side-kick and employee Eric Schwerin asked the Chinese whether they were "interested in other technologies (like Counsyl) we may bring them"
5. Chinese state-owned enterprise CITIC asked Hunter for
introduction to Universal/Comcast to build a park in Beijing (which was built)
6. Hunter was involved in the proposed sale of Regal Entertainment to China
7. Uncle Jim and Hunter hosted "fucking spy chief of China's" CEFC in NYC. Invited Cuomo
8. Hunter had unreported Burisma

I found a copy of the "nobody will care whereabouts of nobody's money" email from Bao to Hunter. Iirc, this had only been posted as a photo of a hard copy on a Chinese news site. Image
While this is the email that's been circulating, I have to say the Bao emails on the whole are really really weird. There is some business but also a lot of really bizarre personal stuff–which all seems to be oneway from her to him. Could be anything from infatuation to honeypot.
I still have absolutely no idea what Bao's role was supposed to be. She set up the odd meeting but then she also sent Hunter a roadmap to get "Uncle Joe" elected, including a detailed China policy. There's some fung shui too and also a lot of motherly stuff. Completely bizarre.

Reposting this as a thread in light if additional info.

Hunter and Devon were worried that a new Ukraine cabinet resolution on gas production would end their Burisma engagement, "goodnight Irene".

A week later, Joe Biden was talking to Poroshenko about Ukraine's energy policy.
Here's the Kievpost article on Biden and Poroshenko from a week after the "goodnight Irene" email.

Also, the Ukrainian deputy energy minister was fired after Biden-Poroshenko talk.…

File "everyone wanted Shokin fired" under "repeat a lie often enough".

On Nov 2, 2015 Burisma demanded from Hunter that the cases be closed. On Dec 7, 2015, Joe was in Ukraine ordering the prosecutor to be fired. At the time no international organization was making that demand.
The IMF put out a vague statement about corruption much later, on Feb 10, 2016. Nothing about Shokin. Entirely possible that Biden's crew were the ones who elicited the statement and that this was the best they could get.
The EU ambassador to Ukraine merely put out a platitudinal statement on his Facebook *after* Shokin had already been fired.

This is from the Weissmann book. The Papadopoulos information "essentially dropped into our laps."

How convenient.
"[Papadopoulos'] primary credentials appeared to be that he lived overseas."

Weissmann may be a first-class asshole but the prose is very good. So much better than Strzok's.

1/ The most egregious aspect to the latest Flynn document drops is that Strzok obtained National Security Letters against Flynn in February and March 2017 based on the same Papadopoulos bullshit which they had already investigated Flynn for and found nothing. But it gets worse.
2/ Here's cast iron proof that Strzok lied to get the National Security Letters issued. The reason for investigation Flynn–according to Strzok's book–was that FBI didn't know who on the campaign the Russians had communicated with. But Papa told them in Jan 2017 that it was Papa!
3/ Strzok obtained National Security Letters against Flynn in March 2017 based on the claim that Flynn might be the person on the campaign who received the Russian info.

In fact, Papadopoulos had already told the FBI in Jan 2017 that it was Papa himself who got the Russian info.
