The letter, written in 2017, was a college recommendation letter that was sent via email between Hunter Biden and his business associates who were associated with the joint venture between Rosemont Seneca and Chinese investment firms Bohai Capital and BHR.
The White House has acknowledged that Hunter held a ten percent stake in BHR, though according to The New York Times, Hunter has since divested.
Fox News reports that "In an email dated Jan. 3, 2017, and sent to Hunter Biden and his business associates Devon Archer and Jim Bolger, CEO of BHR Jonathan Li writes: "Gentlmen[sic], please find the attached resume of my son, Chris Li. He is applying the following colleges for this year." He lists Brown, Cornell, and New York University.
He then attaches an "updated version" of his son's CV.
An email from Hunter's associate James Bulger CC's Hunter and Archer and says that they've received the updated version of the CV.
"Lets [sic] see how we can be helpful here to Chris," Bulger replied.
On February 18, 2017, Hunter's business partner Eric Schwerin replied to Li: "Lets [sic] see how we can be helpful here to Chris. The original is being FedExed to Dr. Paxson (the president of Brown University) directly at Brown," Schwerin wrote. "It should be there by Tuesday at the latest (given Monday is a holiday here in the U.S.). Let us know if you have any questions. Best, Eric."
"Hi Eric, Just see the email. It is just great! Thank you very much!"
"And Hunter, thank you very much too," Li continued. "All the best to you all."
The letter written by Biden has not been obtained or reviewed. It's also unclear if Li's son attended Brown University or if he was even admitted.
The emails originate from Hunter Biden's Laptop. When White House deputy press secretary Andrew Bates was asked about the emails, he said "We don't comment on the laptop."
A spokesperson from Brown University said that privacy issues prevent them from inquiring of the Registrar's office, "Admissions office or any other office when we receive media requests such as these for information about applicants to Brown."
"Given both the requirements of federal law and Brown's own commitment to the confidentiality of student records, we do not entertain these requests because we would not be at liberty in any circumstance to share information on any specific applicant to Brown or recommendation letters in support of any prospective student's application," the spokesperson told Fox News Digital.
