Hunter Biden’s Chinese ‘Client’ Demands $1 Million Refund, Threatens Lawsuit

In a huge blow to the Bidens’ narrative, Hunter’s Chinese Communist Party-linked former client is demanding a refund on a $1 million payment he made to the first son for “services.”

The Chinese client, Dr. Patrick Ho, is now threatening to sue Hunter Biden if he does not return the $1 million payment within seven days.

According to the New York Post, Ho claims he paid Hunter Biden to help him dodge his legal troubles in the United States.

However, Ho says Hunter failed to deliver on his promise, despite being paid in advance.

According to the report, Hunter was paid by the Chinese Communist Party’s energy company CEFC to help Ho, who was an employee at the time.

The outlet reports:

Hunter Biden was paid $1 million by Chinese firm CEFC to act as attorney for its employee, Dr. Patrick Ho, but now Ho is threatening to sue the first son within seven days unless he gets the money back — because he claims Hunter did no legal work for him.

The Post reports that Ho’s demand was made on Sunday, so the clock is ticking.

Ho, according to the Post, made his demand in a letter that was sent by the Hong Kong law firm Huen & Partners to Hunter Biden’s attorney, Abbe Lowell.

The Post goes on to provide the details of the agreement that included a $1 million retainer fee.

“The $1 million legal retainer was wired from CEFC in China to CEFC’s Hong Kong HSBC account, and then, on November 2, 2017, to the American bank account of Hudson West III (HWIII), the firm Hunter co-owned with CEFC, and then to Hunter’s private firm, Owasco, according to his California tax indictment,” the outlet reports.

But, “why, specifically, was Hunter Biden given the money?” you may ask.

Apparently, it was to “help” Ho with the legal troubles that he ran into with the U.S. federal government in 2017.

Ho, at the time was arrested and he ended up being convicted two years later.

He was convicted for paying bribes to the presidents of Chad and Uganda.

Ho was given a three-year prison sentence for the crimes.

Hunter Biden was apparently supposed to help Ho out, but the first son allegedly never did.

The Post reports:

“According to Ho, Hunter, 54, pocketed the $1 million but did no legal work for him, other than call another attorney, Edward Kim, and turn up half an hour late for a meeting with Ho and Kim at the Manhattan Correctional Center the morning after Ho’s arrest.

“Hunter didn’t visit Ho, 74, even once in jail, Ho has told friends bitterly.”

The outlet goes on to reveal that Hunter Biden has, in court, under oath, admitted to receiving the $1 million deposit from the CEFC.

But, under questioning from the judge, Hunter Biden struggled with the details of the legal arrangement between him and Ho.

At the time of this writing, it does not appear that either Hunter Biden or his lawyer has responded to Ho’s request for a return of the $1 million.

It is also unclear what Hunter was expected to do to help Ho’s legal troubles disappear.
