'Everything to Do With My Last Name': Former Business Partner Lays Out Hunter Biden's Business Model

Devon Archer testified on Monday to the House Oversight Committee on what he knew about the Biden family’s foreign business dealings and Joe Biden’s connections.


As we reported, he confirmed things like Joe Biden and Hunter Biden being on the phone during meetings and Biden being put on the speakerphone to talk with the other people in the meeting approximately 20 times. That resulted in some desperate spinning by people like Rep. Dan Goldman (D-NY), who did all he could to downplay what Archer said. But Archer admitted that they were selling a “brand” with all this and Rep. Andy Biggs (R-AZ) did in Goldman’s spin by revealing Archer also confirmed that Joe Biden was the “big guy” referenced in discussions.

But that wasn’t all.

Archer also reportedly told the Committee about the Bidens’ relationship with Hunter’s Chinese business associates including how Joe Biden met with Hunter’s business associate Jonathan Li and wrote a college recommendation for his daughter while he was Vice President. As we previously reported, according to emails, Biden allegedly wrote recommendations for Li’s son as well.

Archer also detailed Hunter’s relationship with Che Feng who was a business tycoon they called “The Super Chairman.” What Hunter said about the relationship also revealed how this was all about the marketing of the Biden name.

Feng helped Hunter’s firm Rosemont Seneca and James Bulger’s Thornton Group partner with Jonathan Li’s Bohai Capital to create Bohai Harvest RST (BHR). We’ve reported on that partnership before in great detail before and on the coffee meeting Joe Biden had with Li in Beijing.


The emails about the deal allegedly detailed Michael Lin telling Hunter about Feng wanting to bring in other CCP-backed companies.

Lin quoted Feng as saying he wanted to include other CCP-backed companies in the venture.

“Super Chairman went: ‘I’m not being greedy even though I commit US$100 million. Actually I’m planning to give part of the remaining 70% to other Chinese big firms which I’m going to invite to join us, companies like China Investment Corp. or that kind of high power companies,’” Lin recounted.

“This is surprisingly great for us,” Lin told Hunter and Bulger. “Companies like CIC and the like will of course even enhance our FMC’s profile and credibility and to make the fund pie even much bigger if they ever choose to join and to commit money. Imagine we will be sitting on the same board with CIC or the other Chinese HUGE investment or fund house(s)!!!) Look forward to seeing you two together with Jonathan in DC.”

Hunter then forwarded Lin’s email to Archer, who co-founded Rosemont Seneca Partners, and said the proposal seemed like the windfall they were seeking.

“Keep this btw us pls,” Hunter told Archer. “But bottom line is if I/ you and me get around 7% of this fund it could be in many ways the end all be all. I dont believe in lottery tickets anymore, but I do believe in the super chairman. See below. I know Michael can be overly optimistic but if we were 20% owners of a CIC super chairman backed fund I think the sky’s the limit.”

“Wow,” Archer replied.


That’s when Hunter said something to Archer which again showed what the “brand” was all about, with an additional very weird twist about why Che Feng liked him.

“Your question- ‘why does Super Chair love me so much?’ is easily answered. It has nothing to do with me and everything to do with my last name (and I bring along very handsome Aryan godlike men wherever I go),” Hunter wrote.

“Regardless- if this is for real (moved from 5% to 25% chance) you and I have to have a long talk about how we divide things going forward,” the president’s son continued. “My opinion is that everything I do since we became partners is equally your’s as it is mine. In this instance I clearly would never had met SC if I hadn’t met Jonathan through Michael through Jimmy through you through Chris. Anyway, my point is whatever comes out of this or anything going forward I consider 50/50 btw you and me and we can figure everyone else out on the back end.”

“Bottom line- when Jimmy and Michael come after us for f’ing up their relationships in Beijing- you are 50% responsible,” he added.

Feng is the son of a People’s Liberation Army (PLA) soldier and was previously business partners with Ma Jian, the former vice minister of State Security, which is China’s KGB, the New York Post previously reported.

“Agreed without hesitation,” Archer responded to Hunter. “We do need to sit down next week and lay out all of the irons on both sides of the fire and plot a course here going forward. We have to think about the future in regards to current cash-flow, longer term cash-flow, wealth creation home runs, etc. and likelihood of success and level of underlying risk for each effort we are undertaking and going to undertake.”


“Nothing to do with me and everything to do with my last name,” says it all right there. He’s trading off the name and the influence that they think will get them influence in government. How obnoxious is Hunter’s comment about the “handsome Aryan godlike men” — that’s what he thinks of himself and his coterie. But I do want to hear how the Democrats are going to twist this comment. Let alone once again all the alleged connections to a foreign hostile government. If this had been Donald Trump, we know that would immediately be called racist and we’d be talking about another impeachment if he were in office.
