Hunter Biden Admits Joe Was The ‘Big Guy’ In $5M China Deal

During his deposition in the impeachment inquiry on Wednesday, Hunter Biden confirmed that his father, Joe Biden, was referred to as “the big guy” in an email discussing a business deal with a Chinese state-linked energy firm. However, he rejected the idea that the president was ever considered for a 10% stake in the venture.

Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.), a member of the House Oversight Committee, revealed details of Hunter’s six-hour closed-door testimony to Breitbart. Greene stated that when questioned about the 10% stake mentioned in the email, Hunter explained it was discussed after his father left office.

This admission marks the first time Hunter has acknowledged that his former business partner, James Gilliar, was referring to Joe Biden in the email dated May 13, 2017, proposing a significant stake for “the big guy” in the joint venture involving CEFC China Energy.

The email, retrieved from Hunter’s abandoned laptop, was initially disclosed by The Post in October 2020 as part of a series on Hunter’s business activities.

In response to questions during the deposition, Hunter reportedly remarked, “What’s wrong with having a pie-in-the-sky idea?” He indicated that he believed his father had concluded his public service after serving as vice president under Barack Obama for eight years. Greene emphasized that Hunter emphasized there was no stake allocated for his father in the business, a detail corroborated by a source familiar with the deposition.

According to the source, Hunter characterized Gilliar’s suggestion of involving Joe Biden in the joint venture as outlandish. In June 2023, when questioned about being referred to as “the big guy,” President Biden confronted a reporter from The Post, expressing frustration at the repeated use of the moniker, which was also utilized by his brother Frank and several of Hunter’s associates.
