“I’m making this statement to set the record straight about the involvement of the Biden family, Vice President Biden, his brother Jim Biden, and his son Hunter Biden in dealings with the Chinese,” Bobulinski said during a press conference on Thursday evening.
He added, “I have heard Joe Biden say that he’s never discussed business with Hunter. That is false. I have first-hand knowledge about this because I directly dealt with the Biden family, including Joe Biden.”
He added that he plans to hand over phones and other documents to the FBI as evidence of his claims, and that he plans to speak to the Senate Homeland Security and Finance Committees.

A report published by the New York Post alleges Hunter Biden introduced his father to an executive for Ukrainian energy company Burisma while he was still vice president, as IJR previously reported.
Hunter Biden was added to Burisma’s board in 2014.
The report runs contrary to a statement issued by the former vice president in 2019 that he has “never spoken to my son about his overseas business dealing.”
According to an email recovered from a laptop in a repair shop, it appears Joe Biden did meet with Vadym Pozharskyi, an adviser to the board of Burisma.
Biden spokesman Andrew Bates denied the allegations.
During Tuesday’s “Fox & Friends” phone call interview, Trump urged Attorney General William Barr to investigate Hunter Biden, as IJR previously reported.
“We have got to get the attorney general to act. He’s got to act and he’s got to act fast,” Trump said. “This is major corruption and this has to be known about before the election.”
White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows told radio host Hugh Hewitt on Wednesday, an investigation is “not necessarily at the top of our priority list in this last 13 days, but as we’re looking at that, we think an independent special counsel might be the best medicine for this, not that anything would come out before November 3rd, nor should that be an expectation that any of your listeners would hear.”
