WSJ Editorial Board: Bobulinski Confirms Joe Biden “Central” to Biden Influence Peddling Business

WASHINGTON— Joe Biden knew about his family’s dealings with a Chinese Communist Party linked energy company, enabled them, and participated in them. The Wall Street Journal Editorial Board outlines a House Committee on Oversight and Accountability transcribed interview with Tony Bobulinski, former business partner of Hunter Biden, in which Bobulinski makes it clear Joe Biden was “central” to a deal with CEFC, the CCP-linked energy company. Joe Biden continues to lie to the American people about his participation in his family’s influence peddling schemes.

Key Excerpts:

“Mr. Bobulinski says it was made clear to him that Hunter’s contribution was ‘providing his name and the power of his family and what they’ve developed over the prior 50 years.’

“He says Joe Biden was also central to the deal. Mr. Bobulinski says he met the then former Vice President in early May 2017 in Los Angeles in the context of the CEFC deal.


“Mr. Bobulinski provided the committee with texts and emails in which Hunter and Mr. Gilliar refer to Joe’s involvement in the deal. Mr. Gilliar warned Mr. Bobulinski in late May in a text: ‘Don’t mention Joe being involved, it’s only when u are face to face, I know u know that but they are paranoid.’


“Mr. Bobulinski had tough words for Mr. Walker’s recent testimony claiming to be unaware of Joe’s involvement. ‘For every one of these guys to now have amnesia or, like, you know, claim that, ‘Oh, Hunter wasn’t really talking about his father’ is just absurd,’ he told the committees.

“He points to ‘stacks of evidence that Joe Biden showed up at meetings, shook hands, participated in phone calls,’ including claims he was on at least 20 Hunter business calls.


“The Oversight Committee says it has found that more than $20 million in payments from foreign sources flowed to Biden family members and business associates.


“Further revelations in the House Oversight Committee investigation into Biden family business dealings surround two checks that landed in Joe Biden’s personal bank account, one for $40,000, the other for $200,000.”
