Joe Biden has long denied any knowledge of his son’s overseas business dealings, despite glaring evidence to the contrary. Now, insiders at the FBI are confirming what many have long suspected.
A whistleblower file obtained by Republican Sen. Chuck Grassley (IA) shows that the FBI has evidence Biden was “aware” of and possibly involved in crimes relating to his son’s business deals, Fox News reported.
FBI exposes “the Big Guy”
The “voluminous” evidence of criminality by Hunter Biden and his uncle and business partner James Biden includes details from an FBI interview with Tony Bobulinski, a former Hunter Biden business partner who publicly identified Joe Biden as “the big guy” before the 2020 election.
Bobulinski went into detail on arrangements between the Bidens and their Chinese business partners to be paid $5 million for work they performed during Biden’s vice presidency, Grassley said, that had been left “intentionally uncompensated” until Biden left office.
According to Grassley, Bobulinski confirmed that 10 percent of Hunter Biden’s interest was set aside for his father, as Bobulinski told the world in October 2020.
The FBI’s Oct. 23 interview produced enough evidence to open a “pay-to-play” investigation, but it’s not clear that any follow-up occurred, Grassley said.
The Burisma connection
The FBI also has evidence of Joe Biden meeting with Hunter Biden and his partners in Los Angeles in May 2017, Grassley added. Those meetings have been publicly reported, but it is news that the FBI has record of them, Grassley said.
Moreover, the FBI has information about Mykola Zlochevsky, the owner of Burisma Holdings, the Ukrainian company where Hunter Biden held a notorious, lucrative sinecure during his father’s vice presidency.
Those documents include “specific details with respect to conversations by non-government individuals relevant to potential criminal conduct by Hunter Biden,” as well as suggestions Joe Biden was aware of his son’s “business arrangements and may have been involved in some of them.”
Grassley was skeptical that the FBI “followed normal investigative procedure to determine the truth and accuracy” of the evidence in its possession. A valid concern, given recent reports of the FBI’s apparent role in blocking an investigation into Hunter Biden before the 2020 election.
According to whistleblowers, the FBI failed to follow up on its interview with Bobulinski and told agents not to investigate Hunter Biden’s laptop, labeling it “disinformation.” Joe Biden used the “disinformation” talking point to dismiss explosive reporting on his son’s business deals on the campaign trail in 2020.
“There are 50 former national intelligence folks who said that what this, he’s accusing me of, is a Russian plant,” Biden snarled during a presidential debate with Donald Trump.
