토니 보불 린스키, Hunter Biden의 전 사업 동료, claimed in an interview Tuesday that the Biden family shrugged off concerns that 조 바이든의 alleged ties to his son’s business deals could put a future presidential campaign at risk.
보불 린스키, in an interview with Fox News’ “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” said he raised concerns in 2017 전 부통령의 형인 짐 바이든에게, Joe Biden이 중국 에너지 회사와의 합작 투자 가능성에 대한 주장에 대해.
보불 린스키, 미국에서 은퇴 한 중위. 해군, SinoHawk Holdings의 전 CEO였습니다., 그는 CEFC의 Ye Jianming 회장과 두 Biden 가족 구성원 간의 파트너십이라고 말했습니다..
“나는, ‘너희들 이걸 어떻게 벗어나지?’‘걱정하지 않으세요??’”그는 Carlson에게.
그는 Jim Biden이 웃었다 고 주장합니다..
“'가능한 부인,’ 그는 Peninsula Hotel의 카바나에서 나에게 직접 말했습니다.,”그는 말했다.
In the interview, he outlines how an alleged meeting with Joe Biden took place on May 2, 2017. Fox News first reported text messages that indicated such a meeting. Bobulinski said that it was the Bidens, not him, who had pushed the meeting.
“They were sort of 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,”그는 말했다.
He went at length into 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.
“I didn’t request to meet with Joe” 바이든, 그는 말했다. “They requested that I meet with Joe [바이든]. 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?” 그는 말했다.
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. The email appeared to identify Hunter Biden as “Chair / Vice Chair depending on agreement with CEFC,”현재 파산 한 CEFC China Energy Co에 대한 명백한 언급.
The email includes a note that “Hunter [바이든] has some office expectations he will elaborate.” A proposed equity split references “20” for “H” and “10 held by H for the big guy?”추가 세부 정보 없음. Bobulinski has repeatedly said “the big guy” was Joe.
Biden has repeatedly denied being involved with his son’s business dealings.
Bobulinski 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.
“나는 내 인생에서 외국 출처에서 한 푼도 가져간 적이 없습니다,” Joe Biden said at a presidential debate last week. “We learned this president … 중국에 비밀 은행 계좌가 있습니다, 중국에서 사업, 사실 제가 돈을받는 것에 대해? 나는 어떤 나라에서도 한 푼도 가져간 적이 없습니다, 이제까지, 이제까지.”
Separately the Biden campaign has said that it released the former vice president’s tax documents and returns, 중국 투자와의 관계를 반영하지 않는.
“Joe Biden은 가족과 사업에 참여하는 것을 고려한 적이 없습니다., 어떤 해외 사업도,” Biden 캠페인 대변인 Andrew Bates는 Fox News에 말했습니다.. “그는 그러한 사업 계약에서 주식을 보유한 적이 없으며 가족이나 다른 사람이 그를 위해 주식을 보유한 적이 없습니다.”
Bobulinski also said that Hunter Biden and Jim Biden were looking to complete deals in places like Oman and Luxembourg, France and Romania — although they had no qualifications with which to do so.
“The only qualification they had was the Biden name,”그는 말했다.
그 동안에, he praised one of the business partners James Gilliar as “sharp” 과 “as legitimate as they come.” But GIlliar had previously told the Wall Street Journal that he was “unaware of any involvement at anytime of the former Vice President.”
Bobulinski also 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 has then decided to go public to the FBI, Department of Justice, Congress and the media to tell his story.
“This isn’t a political decision, people were accusing my family of treason after I defended my country,”그는 말했다.
As for what the 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,”그는 말했다.
“I think the American people should be demanding that this is investigated,”그는 말했다.
He also said he had received death threats and had spoken to the FBI about the danger to him and his family, but hoped he would become irrelevant as the facts came out.
“Hopefully I will go stage left and hopefully our government and appropriate people in the Biden family will go on record and provide facts to the American people,” 그는 말했다.
