It’s becoming increasingly difficult for Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden to credibly deny that he was not, as reports from the New York Post appear to show, involved in the overseas business dealings of his son Hunter Biden.
Newly released text messages seem to show Hunter Biden arranging a business meeting between representatives of a Chinese company and his father, former Vice President Biden, TheBlaze reported.
The text messages from May 2, 2017, were obtained and then revealed on Twitter by Sean Davis, the co-founder of The Federalist, and appear to show Hunter Biden setting up a business meeting involving his father, his uncle James Biden, and the now-bankrupt Shanghai-based China Energy Fund Committee.
“Mrng plse let me knw [sic] if we will do early dinner w your Uncle & dad and where, also for document translation do you want it in simple Chinese or traditional?” the first text message reads.
Hunter Biden then replied: “Not sure on dinner yet and whatever is the most common for a Chinese legal DOC.”
“Chinese legal docs can be both, i’ll [sic] make it traditional,” the individual responded.
Hunter Biden then added, “Dad not in now until 11 — lets me I [sic] and Jim meet at 10 at Beverly Hilton where he’s staying.”
According to Davis, another text message appears to show that the meeting did indeed happen.
Davis reported, “The next morning, on May 3, 2017, Hunter’s business partner-turned-whistleblower Tony Bobulinski texted James Biden — Hunter’s uncle/Joe Biden’s brother — and asked him to ‘please thank Joe for his time’ for the meeting they all had on May 2 to discuss the China business deal.”
Bobulinski, who says he was Hunter Biden’s former business partner, has recently come forward claiming that he can substantiate some of the reports from the New York Post and other outlets, Fox News reported.
According to Bobulinski, an email from Hunter Biden’s laptop which shows “remuneration packages” for six people, including “the big guy,” involved in a business deal with a Chinese company, is real. Bobulinski also said “the big guy” referenced in the email is Joe Biden.
Despite the ever-growing evidence, Biden has adamantly denied any involvement in his son’s overseas business dealings. At the final presidential debate, he claimed that “nothing was unethical” and that “I have not taken a penny from any foreign source, ever, in my life.”
