This is a guy that's bought and sold major companies you've all heard of, right? He goes `I spent nine years.' I go what do you think are the odds that, let's call it, one of your analysts, right, low-level guy which is what Hunter Biden was, could go to China and come back with $1.5 billion dollars in five days. He goes `less than zero unless they're buying you.'"
