In a riveting interview with Fox’s Tucker Carlson, a former Biden family business partner bared his soul on national television. Tony Bobulinski detailed secret meetings, key events, and business structures, but most importantly the former business partner of Hunter Biden set out precisely his alleged interactions and involvement with former Vice President Joe Biden. With a wealth of corroborating evidence to support his claims, it is difficult to see how Joe Biden can continue to dodge a scandal of this magnitude. A mountain of evidence — not conjecture — is growing and represents a troubling account of the presidential aspirant’s behavior, character, and integrity with the potential to be an American political scandal greater in scope than even Watergate.
Bobulinski says that he came forward with the information solely because of Representative Adam Schiff’s (D-CA) assertion that the whole affair was a “Russian disinformation” campaign. “They are publically accusing me of treason,” said the former Navy officer. “This is the last thing I want to be doing right now.” He said that he reached out to Rob Walker (the Biden family spokesman) and demanded that the statements be retracted, or he would go on the record. A shocking clip of that conversation was played during the interview. It said:
Tony Bobulinski: If he doesn’t come out on record, I am providing the facts.
Rob Walker: Tony, you’re just gonna bury all of us, man.
Six Degrees of Separation?
Numerous media outlets have attempted to create a degree of separation for the former vice president by suggesting that although Hunter Biden may have been involved in these deals, Biden-the-elder had no knowledge. This parroting of Joe Biden’s mantra that he has never discussed business dealings with his son flies in the face of too much evidence to be believed at this point. Bobulinski insisted repeatedly that he met with the VP personally to discuss business and was courted by the Biden family to orchestrate high-level deals with the Chinese. He further states:
“I didn’t request to meet with Joe … They requested that I meet with Joe [Biden]. They were putting their entire family legacy on the line. They knew exactly what they were doing.”
He outlined a meeting he had in May 2017 with Joe, Jim, and Hunter Biden while the presidential hopeful was attending a Milken conference. “They were wining and dining me and presenting the strength of the Biden family to get me engaged and to take on the CEO role to develop SinoHawk in the U.S. and around the world in partnership with CEFC,” he said.
CEFC is a Chinese energy company that was a Fortune 500 entity at one point but declared bankruptcy in March 2020 after it emerged that its growth was based on fake deals, inflated figures, and questionable bank loans. The chairman and founder of CEFC was Ye Jianming, who has been facing bribery charges since 2018.
Perhaps the most devastating corroboration of Bobulinski’s claims is a series of text messages (obtained after the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee and the Senate Finance Committee requested them) that appear to show it was, in fact, the Biden family that pushed for the meeting rather than Bobulinski himself.
The Spider’s Web
It appears a complex web, and if true, supports Bobulinski’s assertion that Joe Biden was intimately involved in the Biden family business dealings. “I’ve seen Vice President Biden saying he never talked to Hunter about his business. I’ve seen firsthand that that’s not true because it wasn’t just Hunter’s business, they said they were putting the Biden family name and its legacy on the line.”
Despite the apparent gravity of these claims, at the time of writing, very few major news outlets have deigned to cover the story. Liberty Nation will continue to report for you to determine and we urge our colleagues in the Fourth Estate to do their job and dig deep to test the veracity of Bobulinski’s claims. Whether the claims are true or not, the preponderance of evidence demands investigation by a free and fair press.
