Joe Biden’s brother-in-law reportedly tapped Hunter to help him get a business license in China

Fox News is reporting that President Biden’s brother-in-law, John Owens, asked Hunter Biden in 2014 to help him get a Chinese business license so he could expand his telemedicine companies.

Owens, better known as “Jack,” claimed he needed the license “secured very quickly” for his companies according to Fox News who obtained emails on the subject matter.

He emailed Hunter Biden on May 9, 2014, informing him that his companies had reached a “serious stage” in negotiations with a China-based insurance company. Owens told his nephew that he wouldn’t be able to “seal this deal” without a “Chinese Business License.”

“Time pressures are very tight, plus the fact that we do not yet have one has caused a slight credibility bump in the company’s mind,” Owens wrote at the time. “This all translates into a need for a Business License, and one secured very quickly.”

“While this might seem to be a mundane task, I have come to understand that matters such as a Business License can end up taking an inordinate amount of time … time we just do not have,” he asserted.

Owens said that he would be “most appreciative of any help.”

Hunter Biden replied very quickly, stating, “Working on it-back to you ASAP.”

Following that answer, Biden forwarded his uncle’s email to Thornton Group Chairman James Bulger, who is the nephew of mobster Whitey Bulger, and co-founder of the Thornton Group.

He also sent it to Michael Lin, who is a member of the New York-based advocacy group Committee of 100, which reportedly has ties to the United Front, an influence operation of the Chinese Communist Party.

“See email below. It’s from my Uncle Jack. Is there a way we can help him expedite this? Time is of the essence here,” Hunter Biden asked in an email.

Bulger emailed his response the following morning that he would discuss the issue with Lin to see how they could “help.”

Three days later, Hunter Biden got an answer.

“Me and Michael had a call with Jack this morning I think we have a solution for hi[s] China problem,” Bulger noted. “Michael and Ran are researching the regs and laws right now but our Thornton WOFE will likely be ok for Jacks company to use.”

“Give us until Monday to review a few more laws and regulations in Beijing,” Bulgar replied. “I may have you answer a few question[s] on Monday so we can get specific with the appropriate authority’s in China.”

He seems to be alluding to the wholly foreign-owned enterprise of the Thornton Group in the email.

It is unclear if Owens ever got the business license or if Thornton’s “WOFE” would satisfy China’s laws. However, Mediguide’s website states that the company came to “an agreement with AnyHealth Shanghai.”

“MediGuide and AnyHealth intend to expand MediGuide’s business in China under the name of ‘MediGuide China,'” the website asserts. “AnyHealth Shanghai will be legally representing MediGuide International LLC in China.”

MediGuide promotes itself as a “Delaware-based telemedicine company that markets itself as a solution” to COVID pandemic restrictions. The company has operations in Europe and in Asia. According to a January 2020 archived MediGuide webpage, Owens bought the company in 2003 with John Burris and served as the chairman of the board of directors.

The incident raises even further questions on Hunter Biden’s connections to the communist Chinese government.
