Fox News obtained an email from Khanna on Friday Oct. 30, to Bobulinski, offering him well wishes and supportwhile saying he isn’t commenting specifically on his claims.

“Tony, hope you are doing okay. I did give an on the record statement to The NY Times that I know you, you have always acted honorably with me, and you and other family members supported me,” Khanna wrote. “I have told any media outlets that have asked the same thing.”

Khanna wrote that he has “refused to comment on the details of your allegations because I don’t have personal knowledge about that, but have said I respect your service to our country and that you have never been a ‘partisan hack’ in our interactions and have talked about putting country over party.”

“I also have made it clear that I do not think you are a Russian agent,” Khanna wrote. “I will continue to make that statement to any media that asks.”

博布林斯基, during an interview with Fox News’ Tucker Carlson on Tuesday night, said he wouldn’t have gone public about it if comments by House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff that his claims were part of a “Russian disinformation” campaign were retracted. He then decided to go public to the FBI, 司法部, Congress and the media to tell his story.

Khanna, in the email, added that he is “grateful” for Bobulinski’s past support.

“We had a strict policy on the campaign never to accept contributions that were not from us citizens or green card holders and that were not made by people in their own name,” Khanna wrote. ‘We required explicit verification of that for every contribution made on our website and have that clear documentation.”


他加了: “We took that very seriously and I made it clear that there could be zero compromise on that policy. It is a crime for a donor to reimburse someone else to give, and I know for a fact that is not something we ever accepted by anyone.

“I remain appreciative for your past support and your requesting your family members to support,” Khanna wrote. “After the heat of the election, if you want to, I am happy to chat.”

他加了: “On a personal level, I wish you and your family the best.”

The email was signed: “Best, Ro.”

Fox News reached out to the number referenced on the text message. The person at that number confirmed that Khanna sent the text message.

In the Tuesday interview on “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” Bobulinski 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.

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. Biden himself has not yet directly addressed the claims Bobulinski made on “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.

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.

“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.


“‘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.
