Hunter Biden is asking the Justice Department to investigate allegations that former business partner Tony Bobulinski lied to federal investigators about his relationship with his first family.
First son Hunter Biden has called on the Justice Department to investigate allegations that former business partner Tony Bobulinski lied to federal investigators about his ties to the first family.
The request for an investigation, in a letter sent by Biden’s lawyers to US Attorney Matthew Graves last month, accused Bobulinski of “falsely characterizing her ties and contacts with the Biden family in order to damage her character and reputation.” [Hunter] Biden and his family and to boost his sense of self-worth,” according to ABC News.
The letter, written by the 53-year-old first son’s attorney, Abbe Lowell, also alleges that Bobulinski misled FBI investigators in October 2020 about the extent to which President Biden’s family benefited from foreign business deals.
Lowell writes, “Even in an age where people know lies in order to repeat them and spread them for political advantage, Mr. Bobulinsky’s statements cannot and should not go unscrutinized.”
A month before the 2020 presidential election, Bobulinski, a U.S. Navy veteran, alleged that Joe Biden’s son and brother, Jim Biden, had ties to CEFC, a Chinese energy company that reportedly paid the Bidens $4.8 million in 2017 and 2018.
Bobulinski claims he spoke with Joe Biden about the CEFC deal with the Chinese government and called the then-candidate a “big man” because of a 10% cut in a new corporate entity.
Another Hunter Biden business partner, James Gilliar, also described Joe Biden as a “great guy.”
Lowell claims Bobulinski “made it all up,” and claims Bobulinski has no reason to believe the reference was a “big guy” or that he didn’t think it was his own, or that it was a reference to the vice president. President Joe Biden.”
He further claims in the letter that Bobulinsky did not attend a 2017 meeting in Miami where Hunter Biden, CEFC Chairman Ye Jianming and others discussed the China deal.
“If Hunter Biden and the Biden family are so determined to ensure that the full truth is brought before the American people, Hunter, Jim, Joe and I should all appear publicly and under oath before Congress,” Bobulinski said in an interview with ABC News. statement. “They can name the date, time and place, and I’m willing to do that for the American people.”
He added that the content of Lowell’s letter was “blatantly false” and accused the Biden family of “trying to weaponize the DOJ against me.”
The Republican-led House Oversight Committee has accused Hunter Biden’s legal team of trying to intimidate a potential Joe Biden impeachment witness by sending the letter.
“Hunter Biden and his legal team are once again attacking anyone who speaks out against the Bidens,” Oversight Committee X said in his post. “This time their target is Tony Bobulinski, a potential witness in our investigation.
“We will not tolerate witness intimidation. Despite the threat tactics of the Biden team, the truth will soon emerge. We will give Hunter a chance to clear the air and talk to us soon.”
