Hunter Biden is in the news again, this time in the wake of his acknowledgment that he is under federal investigation over what he dubbed his “tax affairs.”
While the mainstream media appears to have actually deemed this story worthy of coverage, the same could not be said for pre-election allegations against both him and his father, Democratic nominee Joe Biden.
“They requested that I meet with Joe”
As a former business partner of the younger Biden explained in statements to the media, the elder Biden was clearly implicated in wrongdoing as part of dubious international business deals.
Tony Bobulinski came forward in October to share his claims of Biden family ties to foreign nationals and companies — particularly those based in China.
In an interview with Fox News Channel host Tucker Carlson, he recalled meeting and conversations with members of the Biden family — including Joe and his brother, James — as well as the ethical and legal concerns their proposed deals raised.
James Biden allegedly laughed off such worries, citing “plausible deniability” in keeping the influential family name disconnected from the shady dealings.
“I didn’t request to meet with Joe,” Bobulinski said of the former vice president. “They requested that I meet with Joe. They were putting their entire family legacy on the line. They knew exactly what they were doing.”
Hunter’s discarded laptop
Additional allegations surfaced in mid-October when the New York Post published information reportedly retrieved from Hunter Biden’s abandoned laptop.
One email discussed the disbursement of payments as part of a joint venture with a Chinese company and appeared to indicate that an additional stake of equity would be set aside for Joe Biden.
Of course, these reports were dismissed as “Russian disinformation” or wild conspiracy theories by Biden and his surrogates prior to the election.
While no investigative reports have directly linked Joe Biden to his son’s business deals, the latest news regarding a federal investigation into the younger Biden’s affairs only shed more light on the complex scandal.
For his part, Joe Biden has reacted to this week’s development by reiterating his fatherly support, telling reporters that he is “proud” of his son.
