Shocking Text Message Allegedly Shows Hunter Biden Threatening Foreign National – ‘I Am Here With My Father’
Bombshell testimony from an IRS whistleblower led to revelations of a WhatsApp message from Hunter Biden threatening a foreign national and using his powerful father’s name as leverage.
In fact, the alleged message shows Hunter stating that Joe Biden is in the same room with him as he is discussing the matter.
The alarming message was reportedly sent to Henry Zhao, a Chinese businessman and Communist Party official, and threatened that he will “regret not following my direction” while negotiating a deal.
The encrypted message was revealed to the House Ways and Means Committee last month by IRS supervisory agent Gary Shapley and made public Thursday by Rep. Jason Smith (R-MO).
“I am sitting here with my father and we would like to understand why the commitment made has not been fulfilled,” Hunter tells Zhao.
“Tell the director that I would like to resolve this now before it gets out of hand, and now means tonight,” he continued. “And, Z, if I get a call or text from anyone involved in this other than you, Zhang, or the chairman, I will make certain that between the man sitting next to me and every person he knows and my ability to forever hold a grudge that you will regret not following my direction.”
“I am sitting here waiting for the call with my father,” he finishes the message.
Their warnings fell on deaf ears.
In August 2020, a search warrant uncovered a text between Hunter and Henry Zhao, an executive at a Chinese company that paid Hunter $100,000.
The text mentioned Joe Biden repeatedly.

Hunter Biden Text Message Sounds Like Extortion
The New York Post reports that the negotiation between Hunter Biden and Zhao being referenced in this text message involved a six-figure business deal.
“An August 2020 search warrant revealed the exchange between Hunter and Zhao, which resulted in $100,000 payment to the 53-year-old’s firm Owasco P.C.,” they said, according to whistleblowers.
The message is a chilling indication of just how corrupt and criminal the President’s son’s approach to business was. This is blatant extortion, threatening the victim with “regret,” and carrying a general tone of a mafia hit man.

It is unclear if President Biden was in fact sitting with his son Hunter when he sent the threatening text message.
The Washington Free Beacon notes that multiple photos from Hunter’s abandoned laptop place him at the President’s home in Wilmington, Delaware at the same time the text was sent.
The message, though, calls into question President Biden’s repeated specious claims that he “never” discussed his son’s business dealings.
Joe Biden: “I’ve never spoken to my son about his overseas business dealings. Here’s what I know — I know Trump deserves to be investigated… You should be looking at Trump. Trump’s doing this because he knows I’ll beat him like a drum.” https://t.co/yrMdiaBli8 pic.twitter.com/yGhipRo1ew

More Trouble For Biden Inc.
The threatening text message from Hunter using his father as leverage to force payment from a Chinese businessman was just one of the shocking revelations to come from whistleblower testimony.
Claims have also surfaced that the Justice Department tried to “limit” questioning related to President Biden as part of the investigation into his son, despite objections from FBI and IRS officials.
One of those avenues of investigation shot down involved trying to find out who the “big guy” is in a famous 2017 email that stated a partnership would yield a percentage stake of “10 held by H for the big guy.”

“Among other things, we wanted to question Walker about an email that said: ‘Ten held by H for the big guy,’” Shapley said. “We had obvious questions like who was H, who the big guy was, and why this percentage was to be held separately with the association hidden.”
But Shapley said Assistant U.S. Attorney Lesley Wolf “interjected and said she did not want to ask about the big guy and stated she did not want to ask questions about ‘dad.’”
It would be good to know if Joe Biden was truly in the room. But we’ll never know, because DOJ prosecutor Lesley Wolf, per IRS whistleblowers, refused to let investigators ask about “the big guy.” https://t.co/JOmyR0CEDX

Wolf is also cited as thwarting a 2020 search warrant on a storage unit Hunter allegedly used to hide his business records. In fact, they accuse her of tipping off Biden’s legal team.

Hunter was the recent recipient of a sweetheart plea deal for tax crimes and an illegal gun purchase in which he will likely serve no prison time.
The deal reportedly thrilled the President and his inner circle who are feeling “great comfort” about the arrangement for Hunter. The President gave a thumbs up to indicate his son is doing well following the news.

This new information should prompt a fresh investigation, if not a complete rejection of the plea deal by a federal judge.
