biden-wanted-2-million-for-libya-deal-2021-9
Two previously unpublished emails sent by business contacts of
Hunter Biden indicate that the president's son requested an annual
retainer of $2 million to help recover billions in Libyan assets
frozen by the Obama administration.

The emails, obtained by Insider during reporting on an unrelated
matter, are not connected to the controversial emails from Hunter
Biden's laptop, which his supporters have claimed were distributed
as part of a disinformation campaign. And while it appears from the
new emails that the Libya deal was never consummated, the documents
offer a window into the mechanics of Beltway influence peddling, and
the stock that was put in Biden's political connections —
particularly his relationship with his father, who was vice
president at the time.

The first email, dated January 28, 2015, was sent from Sam Jauhari,
a Democratic donor with businesses in the Persian Gulf, who was
helping spearhead the Libya project. It was addressed to Sheikh
Mohammed al-Rahbani, another Obama campaign donor involved in the
proposal. In the email, Jauhari is frank about what Biden would
bring to the table, and what he says Biden wanted in return:

Per phone conversation I met with #2 son. He wants $2 per year
retainer +++ success fees. He wants to hire his own people - it can
be close circle of people for confidentiality. His dad is deciding
to run or not.

His positives are he is Chairman of UN World Food Program, son of #2
who has Libya file, access to State, Treasury, business partner SofS
[Secretary of State] J. [John] Forbes K [Kerry] son and since he
travels with dad he is connected everywhere in Europe and Asia where
M. Q. [Muammar Qaddafi] and LIA [Libya Investment Authority] had
money frozen. He said he has access to highest level in PRC [China],
he can help there.

His negatives are that he is alcoholic, drug addict - kicked [out]
of U.S. Army for cocaine, chasing low class hookers, constantly
needs money-liquidity problems and many more headaches.

We should meet in Gstraad or London to decide next steps.


Biden's apparent offer to provide "access to the highest level" in
the Chinese government is also telling. China, which was attempting
to strengthen its position in Africa, had been a particular source
of frustration for Libya's new government, which was struggling to
free up $15 billion in foreign assets that had been frozen by Obama
during the Qaddafi regime. In 2013, according to The New Yorker,
Hunter Biden had traveled with his father on an official visit to
Beijing, where he had arranged for the vice president to briefly
meet one of his business partners in the lobby of the American
delegation's hotel.

Such access may, in fact, have been worth the price that Biden was
cited as quoting. Two people close to the negotiations told Insider
that the "$2 per year retainer" mentioned in the email meant $2
million. "My recollection was that anything that had to do with
Hunter started at $2 million," said one. Jauhari and his partners,
according to other documents obtained by Insider, expected to pocket
as much as 5% of whatever sanctioned money they could free up for
Libya. That meant a possible payday in the hundreds of millions.
It's unclear whether any "success fees" for Biden would have been
pegged in some way to those proceeds.

The second email, dated February 26, 2016, indicates that the talks
with Biden continued into the following year. In it, Jauhari and
al-Rahbani receive a report by John Sandweg, a Washington lawyer who
had served as acting director of Immigration and Customs Enforcement
under Obama. Sandweg had reached out to Biden's team about the Libya
deal:

I spoke with HB's team yesterday. They are interested in the
project, but emphasized that for them to get involved, the team
(lobbyists, lawyers and PR) would need to be a small group of folks
they have a tight relationship with. They do not want a large group
involved and they only want people with whom they have a close
relationship with due to the sensitivities surrounding their
involvement.

Sandweg, who at the time was working at a law firm called Frontier
Solutions, confirmed that he was in touch with one of Biden's
associates about the project. "They indicated they would consider it
and I passed the message back," he told Insider. "Jauhari wound up
hiring a different law firm instead." (Images of the hard copies of
both emails are available below.)

Neither Jauhari nor an attorney for Hunter Biden responded to
Insider's requests for comment. The White House declined to provide
a statement. Martin Auerbach, an attorney for al-Rahbani, said his
client "has no recollection of seeing those emails
contemporaneously" and "knows to a certainty that he never spoke to
and has no recollection of talking about Hunter Biden."
