The nation’s largest news networks ignored blockbuster reporting from The New York Times this week that chronicled how Hunter Biden helped the Chinese secure a major cobalt mine in Congo.

On Saturday, the Times reported that Biden’s joint global equity firm, the Bohai Harvest RST (Shanghai) Equity Investment Fund Management Company, facilitated purchase of one of the world’s most lucrative cobalt reserves in the Democratic Republic of the Congo.

“The firm made one of its most successful investments in 2016, when it bought and later sold a stake in CATL, a fast-growing Chinese company that is now the world’s biggest maker of batteries for electric vehicles,” the Times reported. “The mining deal in Congo also came in 2016, when the Chinese mining outfit China Molybdenum announced that it was paying $2.65 billion to buy Tenke Fungurume, a cobalt and copper mine, from the American company Freeport-McMoRan.”

Biden’s firm, founded with Chinese business partners and two other Americans, became instrumental in the transaction to help China Molybdenum secure 80 percent ownership of the mine.

In 2019, an analysis of BHR’s finances from The Wall Street Journal showed the company prioritized at least $2.5 billion into automotive, energy, mining, and technology deals on behalf of its investors, largely in overseas projects. One included a joint acquisition of the Michigan motor company Henniges in 2015 that marked “the biggest Chinese investment into U.S. automotive manufacturing assets to date.”

The firm’s creation 10 days after a 2013 visit to China on Air Force Two with his then-vice president father has raised questions surrounding the Biden family’s ties to the Chinese Communist Party, exacerbated by revelations last fall. According to emails found on an abandoned laptop evidently belonging to Hunter Biden and published by the New York Post, Joe Biden
