According to 100 new pages of documented evidence that was approved to be released by the House Ways and Means Committee, Hunter Biden lied under oath during his February 28th deposition to Congress.

Hunter “indisputably” lied at least three times during his sworn testimony, according to evidence provided by IRS whistleblowers Gary Shapley and Joseph Ziegler.

The majority of the panel voted in favor of its release during a closed-door executive session.

When Hunter, 54, sent a menacing text message to the wrong Chinese business associate, he claimed to be “high or drunk.” However, phone records of the conversation reveal Raymond Zhao, the associate, answered and “knew exactly” what the president’s son was talking about when he asked to speak with Ye Jianming, the chairman of CEFC China Energy.

“Sure. I need some time to reach him,” Zhao, a translator for CEFC, wrote back in messages over the next day. “CEFC is willing to cooperate with the family.”

Hunter continued to exchange messages with Zhao. He even threatened him at one point, warning that he was “sitting” with his father, Joe Biden, saying that the two would both “hold a grudge” if the CEFC translator reneged on a “commitment.”

“[T]he Zhao that this is sent to is not the Zhao that was connected to CEFC,” Hunter said in his testimony. 

Shapley stated last year during his first interview with House investigators that the first son’s intended recipient was Henry Zhao. However, a 2020 Senate Republican-led committee report on the transfers said that within 10 days, CEFC had wired $5 million to bank accounts connected to Hunter Biden.

“My father was not sitting next to me,” Hunter also said of dad Joe’s whereabouts when sending the July 30, 2017, message. “My father had no awareness of the business that I was doing. My father never benefited from any of the business that I was doing.”

In 2020, The Post outlet revealed that a May 2017 email written by Biden family associate James Gilliar referenced the “big guy” — meaning Joe Biden — receiving a 10% cut from the proposed joint venture with CEFC.

Joe’s brother, James Biden, was also mentioned, stating that he wrote a $40,000 check for a “loan repayment” to the current president in September 2017. 

Ziegler provided documents to the committee that showed how Hunter had signed off on them and was the “beneficial owner” of a Rosemont Seneca Bohai bank account — despite his previous testimony that it was not “under my [Hunter’s] control nor affiliated with me” and he “didn’t even know that there was such a thing” as a corporate secretary of an entity.

“I, Robert Hunter Biden, hereby certify that I am the duly elected, qualified and acting Secretary of Rosemont Seneca Bohai, LLC,” reads the signed April 29, 2014, document, which allowed Hunter to enter into a contract with Porsche Financial Services.

Hunter also falsely denied that he would help his associates with “any work as it related to visas that they needed” or “pick up the phone and call anybody for a visa.”

In another email from February 5th, 2015, obtained by Ways and Means, Hunter, his ex-business partner Devon Archer, and other associates tried to secure a visa for founder Mykola Zlochevsky of the Ukrainian gas firm Burisma.

“Hunter is checking with Miguel Aleman to see if he can provide cover to Kola on the visa,” Archer wrote in the email, before adding to Burisma associate Vadym Pozharskyi: “please send Hunter an email with all Kola’s passport and visa documents and evidence and copy me. We’ll take it from there.”

“Hunter Biden has shown once again he believes there are two systems of justice in this country — one for his family, and one for everyone else,” said House Ways and Means Chairman Jason Smith (R-Mo.) in a statement. “Not only did Hunter Biden refuse to comply with his initial subpoena until threatened with criminal contempt, but he then came before Congress and lied.”

“Lying during sworn testimony is a felony offense that the Department of Justice has prosecuted numerous individuals for in recent years, and the American people expect the same accountability for the son of the President of the United States,” Smith added. “Hunter Biden’s lies under oath, and obstruction of a congressional investigation into his family’s potential corruption, calls into question other pieces of his testimony. The newly released evidence affirms, once again, the only witnesses who can be trusted to tell the truth in this investigation are the IRS whistleblowers.”

Email exchanges between Shapley and former Delaware Assistant U.S. Attorney Lesley Wolf concerning “an update on one of the witnesses” for Hunter’s then-ongoing tax investigation were also included in the Ways and Means evidence.

Shapley disclosed that Wolf and DOJ tax lawyer Jack Morgan had been called to the CIA in Langley, Virginia, to get a classified briefing regarding the witness, Hunter’s “sugar brother” Kevin Morris, in an affidavit dated May 14th, 2024.

“She reiterated more than once that they were summoned to the CIA in Langley concerning Mr. Morris, and that because of the information provided there, he could not be a witness for the investigation,” Shapley recalled of the phone conversation with Wolf around August 2021.

Just a few months before Delaware U.S. Attorney David Weiss announced a June 20th, 2023, plea agreement with the president’s son, the IRS whistleblowers were removed from the investigation.

Hunter’s lawyers also later turned down the probation-only plea deal. Weiss was promoted to special counsel and he charged the first son with gun and tax felonies in Delaware and Los Angeles.

The federal court in Wilmington is scheduled to open the gun trial on June 3rd.
