An associate of Hunter Biden, who worked as an adviser to a Chinese energy conglomerate, has reportedly provided the FBI with significant information about the Biden family’s foreign business activities, according to a report from Conservative Brief.
Gal Luft, an executive at an Israeli think tank, claims to have given the FBI details after his arrest in Cyprus earlier this month on charges that he illegally sold weapons to Libya and China.
Luft served as an adviser to CEFC China Energy, a conglomerate that is widely believed to be linked to the Chinese Communist Party (CCP).
The group paid Hunter Biden at least $6 million in 2017 to secure energy investment deals in the US, and it donated over $350,000 to Luft’s think tank.
Luft’s claims come as a former Hunter Biden business partner, Eric Schwerin, has started cooperating with the House Oversight Committee’s investigation of the Biden family’s foreign business dealings.
Investigators have focused heavily on Hunter Biden’s work with CEFC China Energy.
The Justice Department has investigated Hunter Biden since 2018 over his taxes and foreign business dealings, though the case appears to be focused on the first son’s unpaid taxes, Conservative Brief notes.
Luft’s threat to “name names” comes after his arrest in Cyprus on Feb 16.
He asserts that the United States is seeking his extradition as part of a “politically motivated” payback for his exposure of the Bidens.
In a Twitter post, Luft stated, “DOJ is trying to bury me to protect Joe, Jim & Hunter Biden.”
