From the moment that we began hearing about the alleged Hunter Biden laptop scandal, there were doubts about the authenticity of the entire thing…and rightly so.
The timing was just a little too perfect, first of all. The FBI had been dealing with the case for almost a year now, and Rudy Giuliani had maintained possession of his copy of the device since at least September of 2020…perhaps longer. The choice to wait until there were two weeks left in the election seems suspect from the start.
And, of course, now that there are copies floating around of this hard drive, there’s no telling what sort of chain-of-custody can be verified, especially now that we’re dealing with a copy the FBI took a year ago, just before taking the actual laptop itself, and with the addition of Rudy’s copy into the mix.
In short – it will take more than the face value of the contents of the laptop to convince anyone that this isn’t a stunt aimed at affecting the outcome of the election.
One of Hunter Biden’s former business associates has just provided a fairly interesting statement, however.
Tony Bobulinski, who was listed as the recipient of an email published by the New York Post that appeared to detail a business arrangement involving a Chinese company and members of the Biden family, has confirmed that the email is “genuine” and provided more information regarding the Bidens’ role in the deal.
The email includes a note that “Hunter 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.
“The reference to ‘the Big Guy’ in the much publicized May 13, 2017 email is in fact a reference to Joe Biden,” Bobulinski said in a statement to Fox News.
And that’s not all that Bobulinski had to say, either.
Bobulinski went on to say he does not believe Joe Biden’s past claim that he and Hunter did not discuss his son Hunter’s business, claiming that Hunter “frequently referenced asking him for his sign-off or advice on various potential deals.”
“I’ve seen Vice President Biden saying he never talked to Hunter about his business. I’ve seen firsthand that that’s not true, because it wasn’t just Hunter’s business, they said they were putting the Biden family name and its legacy on the line,” Bobulinski said.
While Bobulinski’s statement certainly doesn’t validate every item on the laptop, it does go a long way in piquing the interest of Americans everywhere.
