FISA Warrant Issued Against Hunter Biden Chinese Business Associate in Federal Probe
Documents show the warrant was filed against Patrick Ho in February 2018
A Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrant was reportedly obtained by federal law enforcement officials against a Chinese business associate of Hunter Biden.
Patrick Ho was “suspected of acting as a covert agent of a foreign government.”
Documents show the warrant was filed against Ho in February 2018.
The Daily Caller reported:
“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."
“Ho had been an executive at the multi-billion dollar Chinese energy company prior to his arrest.”
A Senate report released last month titled, “Hunter Biden, Burisma, and Corruption: The Impact on U.S. Government Policy and Related Concerns," also mentioned Ho.
The report also notes that CEFC China Energy Chairman Ye Jianming alerted Hunter Biden of 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.”
According to The Sun:
Ho was charged with money laundering related to CEFC China Energy contracts in Uganda and Chad in December 2017, according to the court filing.
Before his arrest, he had been an executive at the multi-billion dollar Chinese energy firm.
Biden had been discussing his involvement with what he jokingly refers to as a "spy chief of China," according to an audio recording obtained released on Tuesday.
The National Pulse was the first to release the recording.
The outlet reports that Hunter also bemoans longtime business partner Devon Archer naming him and his father Joe as witnesses “in a criminal case” without notifying him.
As Neon Nettle reported: Hunter is heard clearly complaining about a New York Times reporter “calling about my representation of Patrick Ho — the f***ing spy chief of China who started the company that my partner, who is worth $323 billion, founded and is now missing.

I get calls from my father to tell me that The New York Times is calling but my old partner Eric, who literally has done me harm for I don’t know how long, is the one taking the calls because my father will not stop sending the calls to Eric. I have another New York Times reporter calling about my representation of Patrick Ho – the fucking spy chief of China who started the company that my partner, who is worth $323 billion, founded and is now missing. The richest man in the world is missing who was my partner. He was missing since I last saw him in his $58 million apartment inside a $4 billion deal to build the fucking largest fucking LNG port in the world. And I am receiving calls from the Southern District of New York from the U.S. Attorney himself. My best friend in business Devon has named me as a witness without telling me in a criminal case and my father without telling me.
