Mobster’s nephew with ties to China visited White House under Obama when Biden was vice-president.
A business associate of Hunter Biden with ties to the mafia and China scored an official visit to the White House under the Obama administration.
James J. Bulger, the nephew of the late crime boss and convicted murderer Whitey Bulger, managed to land a tour of the West Wing when Joe Biden was vice president.
Visitor records show that on August 25, 2016, Bulger met with Anne Marie Person, one of Biden’s aides from his stint as Barack Obama’s right-hand man.
Before joining the then-Vice President’s team, Person previously worked for a shadowy investment firm led by Hunter Biden.
But it’s unclear if the self-proclaimed fixer managed to secure meetings with other White House staffers.
Since 2010, Bulger has been a permanent adviser to the son of the current Supreme Commander on his Chinese business ventures.
James J. Bulger, the nephew of notorious mobster Whitey Bulger who was murdered in prison in 2018, has long been a self-described China ‘fixer’ for Hunter Biden

He chaired a Boston-based advisory group that helped Hunter Biden create a joint venture with Chinese investment house Bohai Capital.
Emails, first obtained by Fox News, show that between 2015 and 2016, he repeatedly relayed information to Hunter Biden about various deals in China.
One such message shows Bulger proposing to meet with the Chinese ambassador to “talk about” the BHR fund.
He suggested that Hunter Biden and his co-founder Devon Archer attend the meeting.
Bulger claimed it was “quite interesting that someone at the embassy in Beijing would be interested in what the domestic Bohai PE Fund was up to.”
“I thought you should see this,” Bulger writes. “I still believe a meeting with the ambassador early next week would be best, I hope it didn’t lead to that[sic] a lot of pain.’
It remains unknown if those talks ever went ahead.
Another leaked email showed Bulger asking Hunter to introduce business partners Jonathan Li and Andy Lu to Tung Chee-hwa, a Chinese billionaire and former first CEO of Hong Kong.
Tung Chee-hwa, a businessman and senior politician in post-colonial Hong Kong, is close to top Beijing regime officials.
“Please let me know if you can introduce these two to Mr. Tung by email, it is very important for our BHR initiative [sic] right now,” Bulger wrote.
Bulger’s visit to the White House in 2016 is the latest example of a former business associate of Hunter Biden gaining access to the White House.
Eric Schwerin, a longtime associate of Hunter Biden, visited the White House at least 27 times when Barack Obama was president.
John Robinson “Rob” Walker, another former business associate, appeared in White House visitor logs at least 16 times during Biden’s stint as vice president.
Walker’s name resurfaced last month when Republicans on the House Oversight Committee said they had obtained new information about payments to the Biden family.
The records show that members of the family received more than $1 million in payments from accounts related to Walker and their Chinese business ventures in 2017.
The US president has repeatedly refused to discuss his son’s controversial affairs.
But during his vice presidency, he met at least 14 of Hunter’s business associates from the US, Mexico, Ukraine, China and Kazakhstan.
Two of Hunter’s Mexican business contacts, Miguel Aleman Velasco and Miguel Aleman Magnani, visited the West Wing on Feb. 26, 2014, according to Obama White House visitor logs.
The then Vice President was later photographed as Hunter gave Velasco and Magnani a tour of the White House Brady Press Briefing room.
A photo found on the laptop reportedly left behind by Hunter Biden. Social media posts about its content were restricted by Facebook and Twitter prior to the November 2020 presidential election.
Joe Biden’s son’s business dealings have been in the spotlight ever since leaked data emerged from a laptop he dropped off at a Delaware repair shop.
The New York Post ran a story in October 2020 about his activities in Ukraine based on emails found on the device.
The laptop bomb was originally limited to platforms like Twitter and Facebook.
Details of their decision just before the election to restrict news that could hurt Biden have trickled out through Elon Musk’s release of the Twitter files.
A slew of unflattering images were also found on the computer, including photos of Hunter Biden smoking drugs or posing for nude selfies.
