Smoking Gun? Biden’s Sale of Oil From Strategic Reserve Went to Chinese Company Connected to Hunter Biden – Opinion

I reported earlier on Thursday how Joe Biden had sold some of the oil from our Strategic Petroleum Reserve to China — and that Republicans were demanding answers as to why. Tucker Carlson stated that Biden should face impeachment.

It raises concerns about national security and also questions the historical connections between China and the Biden family.

Now, there’s more. Joe Biden sells oil to China’s government, which continues to purchase Russian oil.

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. The Chinese government owns the entire company known as Sinopec. The Biden administration claimed the move would “address the pain Americans are feeling at the pump” and “help lower energy costs.” [….]

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.

That would be bad enough — selling to a company directly owned by the Chinese government and basically helping China build up their reserve while depleting our own stores. Hunter Biden also has ties to the company.

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. He cofounded a private equity group that bought a stake of $1.7 million in Sinopec Marketing. One month after Gazprom was sanctioned by the Biden administration, Sinopec entered negotiations to buy Gazprom.
