Hunter May Be Forced To Cough Up $1M

Hunter Biden’s former business partner demanded that he repay $1 million for the legal services he never rendered.  Hunter Biden was appointed as Ho’s attorney in 2017. However, Ho maintains that Biden did not provide any legal representation.

A former employee of the Chinese business CEFC named Chi Ping ‘Patrick’ Ho threatened to sue President Biden’s son in a week if he did not return the money.

A report shows Ho requested the immediate termination of their attorney-client engagement by sending a formal letter to Hunter Biden. Additionally, the letter warned that legal action would be taken against Ho unless he had a complete accounting of Hunter Biden’s services and was reimbursed for the money that was not utilized.

Abbe Lowell, Hunter Biden’s lawyer in Washington, D.C., received Ho’s letter from the Hong Kong legal firm Huen & Partners.

According to Ho, the only thing Hunter Biden accomplished for him in the legal department was to contact Edward Kim, another attorney, and be late to a meeting the day after Ho’s detention in November 2017.

According to a transcript of Hunter Biden’s July plea bargain hearing before U.S. District Judge Maryellen Noreika in Delaware, he said under oath that his law business was the conduit through which Patrick Ho got the one million dollars paid for his legal expenses.

According to Joe Ziegler, an IRS whistleblower who testified before the House Ways and Means Committee last year, the $1 million payment had been misrepresented in the failed plea bargain and was not intended for legal expenses.

In 2019, Ho, the former secretary of home affairs for Hong Kong, was found guilty of bribing the presidents of Chad and Uganda. He was sent back to Hong Kong after serving a three-year prison sentence.

Patrick Ho was involved in two bribery schemes, including paying high-ranking officials in Uganda and Chad. CEFC China is a Shanghai-based multinational corporation that operates in banking, oil and gas, and other fields. Both schemes revolved around Ho, who served as secretary-general of the CEFC NGO, a nonprofit with US and Hong Kong offices, and charitable status with Special Consultative Status with the UN Economic and Social Council. CEFC China provided funding to CEFC NGO.
