News Item:  Hunter Biden had coffee with Chinese billionaire Jonatha Li while
accompanying his father, then Vice President Joe Biden on a state visit to China in
2013.  Twelve days after the trip a private equity firm (BHR Partners) was approved
by Chinese authorities.  Mr. Li headed the fund; Hunter Biden was a board member
with a 10 percent stake.

What an amazing coup.  How do you manage it?

It's my infectious charm and supreme intelligence.  Have you seen my photos?

Yes indeed.  That's why the question, Hunter.

You see what I mean.

Yes it's a miracle.  And your father's position as vice president had nothing to do with

Nothing whatsoever.  He stays out of it.  In fact he told me, 'I hope you know what
you're doing.'

And you do . . .

Well, the results speak for themselves . . .

Yes indeed.  A cup of coffee here, a board seat there, a Chinese equity firm, a
Ukrainian energy firm.  What do you put in the coffee?

Now listen here.  What do you mean?  That's all in the past.

From being kicked out of the US Navy Reserve for cocaine use to high-flying
businessman.  What exactly do you do for BHR or Barisma the Ukraine company?

You know I can't go into details.  But I have expertise.

In what specific area, finance, energy?  It's a broad area.

You folks just don't understand how business at the highest levels works . . .
