Federal law enforcement officials reportedly obtained a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrant against a Chinese business associate of Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden’s son, Hunter Biden.
The Daily Caller News Foundation reports that the revelation suggests that the man, Patrick Ho, was “suspected of acting as a covert agent of a foreign government.”
The revelation was made in a court documents from early 2018 that were obtained by The Daily Caller News Foundation.
“Ho was charged on Dec. 18, 2017 with conspiracy to violate the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act and money laundering related to CEFC China Energy contracts in Uganda and Chad,” the report stated. “Ho had been an executive at the multi-billion dollar Chinese energy company prior to his arrest.”
Ho was mentioned in a Senate report released last month titled, “Hunter Biden, Burisma, and Corruption: The Impact on U.S. Government Policy and Related Concerns.”
The Senate report notes that CEFC China Energy Chairman Ye Jianming brought to Hunter Biden’s attention concerns that he had that Ho was under investigation by U.S. law enforcement officials.
“Around the same time that Hunter Biden began this work, Ye raised concerns with Hunter Biden that one of his associates, Patrick Ho, was under investigation by U.S. law enforcement,” the report stated. “Hunter Biden subsequently agreed to represent Ho.”
