Joe Biden was named in an email found on Hunter Biden's laptop discussing a 25 million-ton gas deal with China, DailyMail.com can reveal exclusively.

In October 2017, Hunter and his uncle –Joe's brother Jim Biden – were brokering a multi-million dollar deal to supply gas from Louisiana to the country on behalf of their business partners, Chinese energy giant CEFC.

At the time Joe Biden had finished his term as vice president and had yet to announce any plans to run for president in 2020. 

A Louisiana-based lawyer on the other side of the deal wrote in an October 27, 2017 email that he had arranged 'a call from Joe Biden and Hunter Biden on Monday morning to discuss the purchase of the 5 million tons of gas.'
