Feds Authorized FISA Warrant Against Hunter Biden Chinese Business Associate, Report Says

“Federal law enforcement officials reportedly obtained a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrant against a Chinese business associate of Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden’s son, Hunter Biden.

The Daily Caller News Foundation reports that the revelation suggests that the man, Patrick Ho, was “suspected of acting as a covert agent of a foreign government.”

The revelation was made in court documents from early 2018 that were obtained by The Daily Caller News Foundation.

“Ho was charged on Dec. 18, 2017 with conspiracy to violate the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act and money laundering related to CEFC China Energy contracts in Uganda and Chad,” the report stated. “Ho had been an executive at the multi-billion dollar Chinese energy company prior to his arrest.”

Ho was mentioned in a Senate report released last month titled, “Hunter Biden, Burisma, and Corruption: The Impact on U.S. Government Policy and Related Concerns.”

The Senate report notes that CEFC China Energy Chairman Ye Jianming brought to Hunter Biden’s attention concerns that he had that Ho was under investigation by U.S. law enforcement officials.

“Around the same time that Hunter Biden began this work, Ye raised concerns with Hunter Biden that one of his associates, Patrick Ho, was under investigation by U.S. law enforcement,” the report stated. “Hunter Biden subsequently agreed to represent Ho.”

The report adds:

‘In November 2017, Ye Jianming’s associate and Hunter Biden’s reported client, Patrick Ho, was arrested and charged with violations of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, international money laundering, and conspiracy to commit both.

The first call that he reportedly made was to James Biden, who reportedly referred him to Hunter Biden. Ho was convicted in March 2019 on charges of money laundering, conspiracy, and violations of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act and was sentenced to three years in U.S. prison for his role in a multimillion-dollar scheme to bribe officials in Chad and Uganda in exchange for business advantages for CEFC, Ye’s company.

Department of Justice documents describe Ye as Patrick Ho’s boss and, again, note that Ye’s company supplied funding to the China Energy Fund Committee. Ho worked as the secretary-general of the committee during the period when he was carrying out his illegal schemes.’

The report from The Daily Caller News Foundation states that federal investigators had “counterintelligence concerns” about Ho, which led them to obtain a FISA warrant that allowed them to “conduct electronic and physical surveillance of Ho’s property.””
