A newly released memorandum of the interview between James Biden (President Joe Biden’s brother), his attorney, and several FBI and US Attorney’s office officials, has revealed that James Biden attempted to help a Chinese company purchase U.S. energy assets.

President Joe Biden’s brother told the FBI the first family – including Hunter Biden – tried unsuccessfully to help a Chinese company buy U.S. energy assets and did so believing the firm’s leader was tied directly to Communist Chinese President Xi Jinping, according to explosive new documents made public Wednesday by the House Ways and Means Committee on the eve of the first congressional impeachment inquiry hearing.

James Biden told the FBI in an interview last year about efforts by him and Hunter Biden to help the CEFC energy firm in China buy a liquid natural gas facility on Monkey Island off the coast of Louisiana, and that he personally met once with the company’s chairman, Ye Jianming, according to the FBI interview report released by the committee.

“James B noted (Hunter) portrayed CEFC to him as Chairman Ye was a protégé of President Xi,” FBI agents wrote in the report.

This comes, of course, on the eve of the first impeachment inquiry hearings. The entire interview with James Biden can be seen here.

Georgia Republican Representative Austin Scott described James Biden’s activities as “treasonous.”

Upon the revelations, Georgia Republican Rep. Austin Scott deemed such activities treasonous, expressing that sentiment on the “John Solomon Reports” podcast on Wednesday.

“It just means it’s even worse than even I thought it was that they would go that far. If you look at some of those ports in Louisiana, and I don’t have a map in front of me, but like Port Fourchon, that area of Louisiana, just a tremendous portion of the energy that we use inside the United States come comes through those hubs,” he said.

“And the idea that you would help the Chinese acquire assets in that area to give, you know, an adversary… the ability to control the energy supply inside the United States… I don’t understand how much more of a traitor you could be than to do such a thing,” Scott added.

China is, perhaps, not an actual enemy of the United States — and treason is defined by the Constitution in Article III, Section 3, as follows:

 Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort.

China is, however, unarguably a rival of the United States.

This report also blows another hole in the story that Joe Biden “knew nothing” of his brother’s and son’s business dealings:

The bombshell revelation further contradicts President Biden’s claim dating to the 2020 election that his family made no money from China. It was released as part of a cache of documents turned over to the committee by FBI whistleblowers Gary Shapley and Joseph Ziegler.

My colleague Nick Arama recently documented more details about how the American legacy media has already slammed the throttle up to Spin Factor Eight to cover for the Biden Administration, but as another colleague, Bonchie, points out, the embarrassing details just keep showing up.

There is, as I’ve said before, an awful lot of smoke here for there not to be a fire someplace, and we can hope that the House impeachment inquiry will continue to press for details. Of course, any impeachment, should it be successful in the House, will die a certain death in the Democrat-controlled Senate.

But sometimes, a thing isn’t worth doing because it stands a good chance of success. Sometimes, a thing is worth doing because it’s the right thing to do. The House impeachment inquiry, clearly, is the right thing to do at this juncture, and if the findings of that inquiry warrant, we’ll then see for sure if the House GOP has the stones to actually implement impeachment proceedings.

It remains to be seen what will happen – but if asked, I know how I’m going to bet.
