    Joe's corrupt, and a Calif Democrat politician, Khanna, says retired Navy Lt Bobulinski is a stand up guy who has donated to his campaign numerous times.

    "Democratic congressman tells ex-Hunter Biden associate Bobulinski he’d defend him over ‘partisan hack’ claim
    Donor records show that Bobulinski has contributed money to Democrats -- including Rep. Ro Khanna"

    This is more than Impeachment crimes, money laundering, and tax evasion are just the tip of the iceberg.

    Democratic Rep. Ro Khanna told Hunter Biden’s former business associate Tony Bobulinski in a new message that he would defend him against claims that he is a “partisan hack” in the wake of his claims about the Biden family's business ventures, according to an email obtained by Fox News.

    Bobulinski -- who says he was once involved in a joint-business venture with Hunter Biden and Jim Biden -- has come forward with documents, including emails and text messages, claiming that he met twice with former Vice President Joe Biden. Those claims conflict with the Democratic nominee's statements that he has had no involvement with, or discussions about, his family’s overseas business ventures.

    Critics have slammed Bobulinski for going public with the accusations and documents -- with some accusing him of being a partisan of trying to take down Biden -- but the businessman has maintained that the “American people should be demanding that this is investigated.”

    Donor records show that Bobulinski has contributed money to Democrats -- including multiple times to Khanna, a California lawmaker, since 2013.


    Fox News obtained an email from Khanna on Friday Oct. 30, to Bobulinski, offering him well wishes and support -- while saying he isn't commenting specifically on his claims. A spokeswoman for Khanna confirmed the email to Bobulinski from the congressman is authentic.

    “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.”

    Bobulinski, 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, Department of Justice, 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.”


    He added: “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.”

    He added: “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, according to text messages first reported by Fox News last week.

    Those messages indicated that the meeting did, in fact, take place. Bobulinski claimed Tuesday that it was Hunter Biden and Jim Biden, the brother of the former vice president, 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,” he said.

    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 "Tucker Carlson Tonight."

    In 2019, Biden told reporters: "I have never discussed with my son or my brother or anyone else anything having to do with their businesses. Period."

    But Bobulinski -- in his interview Tuesday -- described 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" Biden, he said. "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 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?" he said.

    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,” in an apparent reference to now-bankrupt CEFC China Energy Co.

    The email includes a note that “Hunter [Biden] has some office expectations he will elaborate.” A proposed equity split references “20” for “H” and “10 held by H for the big guy?” with no further details. Bobulinski has repeatedly said “the big guy” was Joe Biden.

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

    Bobulinksi, meanwhile, 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.

    "I have not taken a penny from any foreign source ever in my life," Joe Biden said at a presidential debate last week. "We learned this president ... has 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, which do not reflect any involvement with Chinese investments.

    “Joe Biden has never even considered being involved in business with his family, nor in any overseas business whatsoever," 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.”

    Meanwhile, during the interview, Bobulinski said that the Biden family, in 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.

    “I remember saying, ‘How are you guys getting away with this?’ ‘Aren't you concerned?’” he told Carlson.

    He claims that Jim Biden chuckled.

    "'Plausible Deniability,' he said it directly to me in a cabana at the Peninsula Hotel,” he said.

    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,” he said.

    Fox News' Mike Emanuel contributed to this report.
    mmm bye bye Joe

    The brother of Democratic nominee Joe Biden, Jim Biden, refused to answer questions from a reporter outside his home in Maryland about the former vice president’s involvement in his family’s overseas business relationships.

    “I don’t want to comment about anything,” Jim Biden said responding to a question by a Fox News reporter asked from a distance at the residence on the Eastern Shore a video of the encounter shows. Asked if would answer questions, he replied: “Nope.”

    Fox said it verified the person was Jim Biden with two sources, including a neighbor who viewed the footage. Fox also said the home is linked to Joe Biden in public records.

    “Would you please stop bothering me?” he says on the video.

    The encounter came less than a day after a business associate of Jim Biden and Joe Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, appeared on Fox News to declare Joe Biden was well aware of Jim and Hunter Bidens’ partnership with a Chinese energy company.

    Tony Bobulinski, a retired U.S. Navy lieutenant, told Fox News that he was the former CEO of SinoHawk Holdings, which was a joint venture between Jim and Hunter Biden and CEFC China Energy Chairman Ye Jianming.

    He said he met with Joe Biden twice and spoke about the deal.

    He said that in 2017, he specifically asked Jim Biden about Joe Biden’s involvement.

      SinoHawk Holdings, a joint venture that included members of the Biden family, in 2017 touted Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden’s relationship with then-Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos in an effort to secure $10 million in seed money from CEFC China Energy, a Chinese energy conglomerate, reports The Daily Caller.

      Tony Bobulinski, Hunter Biden’s former business partner and a member of SinoHawk, shared hundreds of files with the Daily Caller, including the investment pitch to CEFC.

      Why didn't John post those really hard questions from the media like " Joe, Joe, what flavors are the milk shakes"
      I can't wait for Joe to win. Then the Republicans will have it all televised when they try Joe on money laundering, and tax evasion, using his position as VP to further his sons career, and Joe will be under oath answering questions about the hard evidence, and that's just from Bobulinski, a Navy veteran and business partner of Hunter's and it seems Joe biden too.

        The Wall Street Journal and Fox News have both reported finding no evidence that former Vice President Joe Biden benefited from the Hunter Biden business dealings that have drawn scrutiny. More explicitly pro-Trump media outlets — OAN, Breitbart, Newsmax — have mostly shied away from publishing fresher, more salacious allegations. And conservative talking heads — pundits, politicians and loud MAGA Twitter personalities alike — have been more focused on the meta narrative around the laptop, arguing that mainstream media, social media companies and the deep state are conspiring to prevent President Donald Trump’s reelection by suppressing the story.

        But with bits and pieces of the entire Hunter Biden narrative floating across the conservative mediasphere, few people on the right have been able to explain who, exactly, did what, on behalf of whom.

          Sorry dude but obviously you didn't watch the coverage of Tony Bobulinski, a Navy veteran and business partner of Hunter Biden. He showed enough proof Wednesday night, and it's on those 3 phones.

          Here's another piece that's neither Fox or Newsmax. We all know your beloved cnn has zilch on it because they like keeping your mushroom brains in the dark while feeding you your daily chit.

          FBI officials will meet with Bobulinski the day after he spoke about texts and emails he said surrounded an effort to set up a business deal with Biden family members, and said he was turning over three cell phones stocked with information to the FBI and meet with GOP-run Senate Homeland Security Committee.

          Like I said earlier, even if Joe wins he'll be the fastest impeached president of all times. But this is prison time stuff called money laundering and tax evasion.

          mmm bye bye Joe

          PS, Do you think our Electors will pick Joe knowing what's going on?

            And Tony Bobulinski is a Democrat and the last few years has donated $12,100 dollars to a Calif Democrat by the name of Rep. Ro Khanna.

      Of course the dumpster leads in fake polls!! Fake is the only thing that guy knows. Damn, you're one dumb inbred.

      Can't wait to watch the inbred head explosions: first when Biden wins, and second when no evidence is found to prosecute him on.

      Conservatards confuse evidence with "evidense". Evidense is name they're always being labeled, as they're evidently dense.

    One candidate thinks about how his decisions can benefit all Americans.
    One candidate makes decisions based on making his supporters stay on the train.
    Choice is pretty clear who deserves to be president.

I'm a liberal woman and proudly support Joe Biden. My husband a trump supporter. I do not talk politics with him. We both have always used mail in ballots and I mail them because I also do all the on-line monthly bills or write the checks. I can honestly say I know my ballot made it to the post office yesterday, that's one for Joe.
This garbage about Joe Biden and China business is all fake just to create doubt and is nothing but election garbage. We would of heard about it on at least one news station.
