REPORT: Joe Biden sold a million barrels of Strategic Oil Reserves to Chinese gas giant with ties to Hunter Biden

We reported this morning that Joe Biden has been selling our strategic oil reserves to other countries.

Now we learn that a million of those barrels went to a Chinese gas giant that has ties to Hunter Biden’s equity firm.

Via Free Beacon:

The Biden administration sold roughly one million barrels from the Strategic Petroleum Reserve to a Chinese state-controlled gas giant that continues to purchase Russian oil, a move the Energy Department said would “support American consumers” and combat “Putin’s price hike.”

Biden’s Energy Department in April announced the sale of 950,000 Strategic Petroleum Reserve barrels to Unipec, the trading arm of the China Petrochemical Corporation. That company, which is commonly known as Sinopec, is wholly owned by the Chinese government. The Biden administration claimed the move would “address the pain Americans are feeling at the pump” and “help lower energy costs.” More than five million barrels of oil released from the U.S. emergency reserves, however, were sent overseas last month, according to a Wednesday Reuters report. At least one shipment of American crude went to China, the report said.

The Biden administration also claimed the Unipec sale would “support American consumers and the global economy in response to Vladimir Putin’s war of choice against Ukraine” and combat “Putin’s price hike.” But as the war rages on, Unipec has continued to purchase Russian oil. In May, for example, the company “significantly increased the number of hired tankers to ship a key crude from eastern Russia,” Bloomberg reported. That decision came roughly one month after Unipec said it would purchase “no more Russian oil going forward” once “shipments that have arrived in March and due to arrive in April” were fulfilled.

The company Sinopec is one that Hunter Biden’s equity firm bought a nearly 2 billion dollar stake in back in 2015:

Power the Future founder Daniel Turner admonished Biden for selling “raw materials to the Communist Chinese for them to use as they want.”

“We were assured Biden was releasing this oil to America so it could be refined for gasoline to drive down prices at the pump. So right off the bat, they’re just lying to the American people,” Turner told the Washington Free Beacon. “What they’re saying they did and what they did are not remotely related.”

Turner also said the decision highlights the Biden family’s “relationship with China.” Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, is tied to Sinopec. In 2015, a private equity firm he cofounded bought a $1.7 billion stake in Sinopec Marketing. Sinopec went on to enter negotiations to purchase Gazprom in March, one month after the Biden administration sanctioned the Russian gas giant.

As of late last year Hunter Biden still held a 10% stake in this private equity firm even though Joe promised he’d divest. If he still holds that 10% stake, then this is very problematic. I mean, assuming anyone cares to hold Joe Biden accountable like they tried to do with Trump.

All that aside, this is still a big deal because Joe is selling our strategic oil reserves to other countries. It was supposed to be used for gas prices here in America and now we are seeing that they lied about that too.
