Owens wrote, “The time pressure is too tight, plus the fact that we don’t have one yet, created a bit of credibility in the company’s mind. It all translates into the need for a business license, and One becomes safe very quickly.” “While this may seem a mundane task, I have understood that matters like business licenses can take an excessive amount of time….. we just don’t have the time.”
Owens continued by saying that he “would most appreciate any help.” Hunter Biden responded less than an hour later, saying, “Working on it—you’re at the earliest.” The younger Biden then forwarded Owens’ email to Thornton Group chairman James Bulger, nephew of mobster Whitey Bulger and Thornton Group co-founder.
He also referred it to Michael Lin, a member of the Committee of 100, a New York-based advocacy group affiliated with the United Front, an influence operation of the Communist Party of China (CCP).

Hunter Biden wrote, “See email below. This is from my Uncle Jack. Is there any way we can help him speed this up? Time is of the essence here.”
Bulger responded the next morning, saying that he would discuss with Lynn how they could “help”. Three days later, Bulger sent Hunter an email saying, “With Jack this morning with mine and Michael’s call, I think we have a solution for Hi.[s] China’s problem.”

A few days later, Bulger sent an email to Owens and Lynn, and imitated Hunter Biden, asking Owens to “give us until Monday to review some more laws and regulations in Beijing”.
“Maybe I can answer some questions from you[s] on Monday so that we can be specific with the appropriate authority in China,” Bulger wrote.

It is unclear whether Bulger and Lynn were able to successfully secure a business license for Owens or whether Thornton’s “WOFE” was sufficient for China’s laws. However, MediGuide’s website says they have come to “an agreement with AnyHealth Shanghai”.
“MediGuide and Any Health intend to expand MediGuide’s business in China under the name ‘MediGuide China’.” Website reads. “AnyHealth Shanghai will legally represent MediGuide International LLC in China.” It is not clear if AnyHealth Shanghai is the same company mentioned in the email.
