Emails from a laptop owned by Hunter Biden reportedly reveal that President Joe Biden wrote a college recommendation letter for the son of one of Hunter Biden’s business partners.

Joe Biden, then vice president, sent the letter of recommendation for Christopher Li, son of BHR CEO Jonathan Li, directly to Brown University President Christina Paxson in February 2017, Fox News reported. BHR is a Chinese investment firm, in which Hunter Biden previously held a 10% stake.


Jonathan Li reportedly emailed Hunter Biden and two other individuals in January 2017, asking for advice on how to get Christopher Li into one of three colleges: Brown University, Cornell University, and New York University.

“Hunter asked me to send you a copy of the recommendation letter that he asked his father to write on behalf of Christopher for Brown University,” Eric Schwerin, president of Rosemont Seneca, Hunter Biden’s firm, wrote back in an email Fox reported. “The original is being FedExed to Dr. Paxson directly at Brown.”

Li responded to the email, saying: “It is just great! Thank you very much!”

“And Hunter, thank you very much too,” Li added.

Joe Biden has denied knowledge of his son’s business activities, and has claimed his son did nothing illegal on multiple occasions.

Hunter Biden’s laptop was the subject of a New York Post report that was censored by social media companies that claimed the material was hacked.

In October 2020, an email from a copy of the hard drive obtained by the Daily Caller News Foundation was authenticated by cybersecurity expert Robert Graham.

Last month, The New York Times admitted the laptop and its contents were authentic in a report discussing an IRS investigation into the younger Biden’s financial dealings.
