A business associate of Hunter Biden with ties to gangs in China has paid an official visit to the Obama White House.
James J. Bulger, nephew of late crime boss and convicted murderer Whitey Bulger, was able to take a tour of the West Wing when Joe Biden was vice president.
Visitor records show that Bulger met with Annemarie Pearson, a Biden aide from his stint as Barack Obama’s right-hand man, on August 25, 2016.
Before joining the then vice president’s team, someone previously worked for a shadowy investment firm run by Hunter Biden.
But it is unclear whether the self-proclaimed middleman managed to secure meetings with any other White House staff.
Bolger has been a regular advisor to the current commander-in-chief’s son on his Chinese business ventures since 2010.

He was chairman of a Boston-based advisory group that helped Hunter Biden launch a joint venture with Chinese investment firm Bohai Capital.
The emails, first obtained by Fox News, show that he repeatedly passed information to Hunter Biden about a different deal in China between 2015 and 2016.
One such letter shows Bulger proposing a meeting with the Chinese ambassador to “talk about” the BHR fund.
He suggested that Hunter Biden and co-founder Devon Archer attend the meeting.
Bolger claimed that it was “interesting that someone at the embassy in Beijing might have been interested in what the local Bohai PE fund was”.
“I thought you should see this,” Bulger wrote. “I still think meeting early next week with the ambassador if possible is best, and I hope this doesn’t cause too much pain.”
It remains unknown if those talks have gone ahead.
Another leaked email showed Bulger asking Hunter to introduce business partners Jonathan Lee and Andy Law to Tung Chee Hwa, a Chinese billionaire and former top executive of Hong Kong.
Tung Chee Hwa, a prominent businessman and politician in post-colonial Hong Kong, is close to senior officials of the Beijing regime.
“Please let me know if you can introduce these two to Mr. Tong via email, it’s very important to the BHR (sic) initiative at this moment,” Bulger wrote.
Bulger’s visit to the White House in 2016 is the latest example of a former business partner of Hunter Biden arriving in the White House.
Eric Schwerin, a longtime partner of Hunter Biden, visited the White House at least 27 times while Barack Obama was president.
John Robinson “Rob” Walker, another former business partner, appeared in White House visitor logs at least 16 times during Biden’s tenure as vice president.
Walker’s name resurfaced last month when Republican members of the House Oversight Committee said they had obtained new information about payments made to the Biden family.
Records show that family members received more than $1 million in payments from accounts linked to Walker and their Chinese business ventures in 2017.
The US president has repeatedly refused to discuss his son’s controversial business dealings.
But he has met at least 14 of Hunter’s business partners from the United States, Mexico, Ukraine, China and Kazakhstan during his vice presidency.
Two of Hunter’s Mexican business connections Miguel Alemán Velasco and Miguel Alemán Magnani visited the West Wing on February 26, 2014, according to Obama White House visitor logs.
The vice president was later photographed with Hunter giving Velasco and Magnani a tour of the Brady press briefing room at the White House.

Joe Biden’s son’s business dealings have been in the spotlight since leaked data emerged from a laptop he had delivered to a Delaware repair shop.
The New York Post ran a story in October 2020 about his activities in Ukraine based on emails on the device.
The laptop bomb was originally restricted to platforms such as Twitter and Facebook.
Details of their decision to limit news that could harm Biden just before the election emerged from Elon Musk’s release of Twitter profiles.
A large number of hateful images were also found on the computer, including pictures of Hunter Biden smoking drugs or posing for nude selfies.
