Biden stays silent on Bobulinski claims about family's business ventures

乔·拜登 and his presidential campaign are staying mum after Hunter Biden’s former business associate went public to say he met twice in the past with the former vice presidentdespite past statements from Biden on the campaign trail that he had no involvement with or discussions about his family’s overseas business ventures.

那位同事, 托尼·波布林斯基, gave an interview on Fox News’ “Tucker Carlson Tonight” on Tuesday and detailed his alleged meetings with the former vice president—one of which took place on May 2, 2017, 根据福克斯新闻上周首次报道的短信.

“合理的可否认性”: 托尼·伯布林斯基(Tony BOBULINSKI)宣称拜登(BIDEN)家庭对有关风险的担忧已被搁置 2020 出价

这些消息表明会议确实, 事实上, 发生. 博布林斯基(Bobulinski)周二声称是猎人·拜登(Hunter Biden)和吉姆·拜登(Jim Biden), 前副总统的兄弟, who had pushed the meeting.

“他们是赢我吃饭的人,展现了拜登家族的力量使我参与其中,“ 他说.

The Biden campaign declined to comment on the meeting Biden allegedly had with Bobulinski. 拜登本人尚未直接解决Bobulinski关于 “塔克·卡尔森(Tucker Carlson)今晚。”

在 2019, 拜登告诉记者: “我从未与儿子或兄弟或其他任何人讨论过与他们业务有关的任何事情. 期。”

But Bobulinskiin his interview Tuesdaydescribed at length how Joe Biden arrived for a Milken conference, partly held at the Beverly Hilton Hotel, and how he was introduced by Jim and Hunter Biden to the former vice president.

Speaking with Carlson, Bobulinski also claimed Biden’s denials of knowledge in his son’s foreign dealings during the presidential debate was a blatant lie.

I didn’t request to meet with Joe” 拜登, 他说. “They requested that I meet with Joe [拜登]. They were putting their entire family legacy on the line. They knew exactly what they were doing.”

He asked why the former vice president would want to meet him.

“Why on 10:38 on the night of May 2 would Joe Biden take time out of his schedule to take time with me, behind a column so people could not see us, to have a discussion with his family and my family and business at a very high level?” 他说.

The meeting on May 2, 2017, would have taken place 11 days before a May 13, 2017, email obtained by Fox News, which included a discussion of “remuneration packages” for six people in a business deal with a Chinese energy firm. 该电子邮件似乎将Hunter Biden标识为“主席 / 副主席取决于与CEFC的协议,显然是指已破产的华信中国能源有限公司.

The email includes a note that “Hunter [拜登] has some office expectations he will elaborate.” A proposed equity split references “20” for “H” and “10 held by H for the big guy?”,没有更多详细信息. Bobulinski has repeatedly said “the big guy” was Joe.

Biden has repeatedly denied being involved with his son’s business dealings.

Bobulinksi, 与此同时, said he was told by CEFC that it was a $ 10 million deal that would see a $ 5 million loan to the Biden family and $ 5 million was their contribution to capitalize SinoHawk Holdings.

The allegations have been denied by Joe Biden and his campaign.

“我一生中从未从任何外国来源获得过一分钱,” Joe Biden said at a presidential debate last week. “We learned this presidenthas a secret bank account with China, does business in China, and in fact is talking about me taking money? I have not taken a single penny from any country whatsoever, ever, ever.”

Separately the Biden campaign has said that it released the former vice president’s tax documents and returns, 没有反映出中国投资的参与.

HUNTER BIDEN BUSINESS ASSOCIATE’S TEXT MESSAGES INDICATE MEETING WITH JOE BIDEN

“Joe Biden has never even considered being involved in business with his family, 也不从事任何海外业务,” Biden campaign spokesman Andrew Bates told Fox News. “He has never held stock in any such business arrangements nor has any family member or any other person ever held stock for him.”

与此同时, during the interview, Bobulinski said that the Biden family, 在 2017, had shrugged off concerns that Joe Biden’s alleged ties to Hunter Biden’s business deals could put his future presidential campaign at risk.

Bobulinski said he raised concerns in 2017 to Jim Biden, about Joe Biden’s alleged ties to the possible joint venture—SinoHawk Holdings, which was a partnership between the CEFC Chairman Ye Jianming and Jim and Hunter Biden.

“我记得说过, ‘你们如何摆脱这个?’‘你不在乎吗?’”他告诉卡尔森.

他声称吉姆·拜登笑了.

“‘令人难以置信的可否认性,’ 他在半岛酒店的小屋里直接对我说,“ 他说.

As for what those deals could mean in a potential Biden administration, Bobulinski said that he believes Joe Biden and his family are “compromised.”

“I just don’t see given the history here and the facts how Joe can’t be influenced in some manner based on the history they have here with CEFC,“ 他说.

“I think the American people should be demanding that this is investigated,“ 他说.
