Joe Biden is the person referred to as the ‘the big guy’ who would receive 10 percent equity in a deal with a Chinese energy firm, as referenced in an email chain including his son Hunter, a report says.
According to Fox News, the May 13, 2017, email sent to Hunter by James Gilliar, from consulting firm J2cR, has been authenticated by others included on the chain.
The network also claimed that sources have confirmed Joe Biden was ‘the big guy’ listed among the six people who would receive the payments.
The payees were only identified with initials and nicknames with a note stating that ‘the big guy’ would get his payment through ‘H’.
‘H’ is his son Hunter, sources told Fox, who would receive 20 percent.
The emails were sent when Biden was no longer Vice President and Trump was in office.
The email had already been published by the New York Post on Thursday but the identity of ‘the Big Guy’ was not known.
Titled ‘Expectations’, it details ‘remuneration packages’ for six people in a business venture.
Hunter was identified as the ‘chair/vice chair depending on agreement with CEFC’, an apparent reference to the now bankrupt Shanghai conglomerate China Energy Co.
His pay was ‘850’ and the correspondence also noted how he ‘has some office expectations he will elaborate’.
The remaining 20 per cent was split with 10 per cent going to ‘Jim’ who is otherwise unnamed, and then ’10 held by H for the big guy?’
The big guy was previously unnamed until Fox claimed Friday that it was in reference to Joe Biden.
Zang appears to be a reference to Zang Jian Jun who was the former executive director of CEFC.
According to the alleged emails published by the Post about huis Chinese dealings, Hunter also struck a deal for $30 million plus bonuses ‘based on introductions alone’ over three years after his father left office, then was offered a ‘much more lasting and lucrative arrangement.’
