An e-mail that appears to indicate that Hunter Biden is pursuing a lucrative energy business deal in China – and may have involved his father in the action – has been confirmed as authentic by one of its recipients, Fox News reported Friday night.
Fox’s report also sheds light on the annoying mystery of emails, as first outlined by The Post – a reference to 10 percent of the equity of the proposed business may be titled “The big guy.”
The “big man” was a reference to Joe Biden, Fox revealed, citing unnamed “sources.”
The Post had announced the news of the Chinese bicycle deals on Thursday, but the reference to the “big man”
A Fox source who confirmed that the emails were authentic was not named, but the network said the person was someone copied into the thread.
In the email, Hunter Biden was referred to as “chairman / vice president under the agreement with CEFC,” an obvious reference to the former Shanghai-based conglomerate CEFC China Energy Co.
The email outlines an “interim agreement” under which 80 percent of the “equity” or shares in the new company will be divided equally between four people whose initials correspond to the sender and three recipients, with “H” apparently referring to Hunter Biden.
The deal also listed “10 Jim” and “10 held by H for the big man?”
“Sources told Fox News that the ‘big man’ is a reference to the former vice president,” Fox said.
Biden’s campaign denied wrongdoing.
