A former business associate of Hunter Biden has come forward to confirm that 'the big guy,' as referenced in an email laying out cash amounts for a Chinese influence peddling scheme, was in fact Joe Biden.
Bobulinski has said that he was one of those who received an email dated May 13, 2017, as reported by the New York Post on Oct. 14, that elucidated positions, titles, and associated cash payments. In that email, there was a 10 percent laid out for "the big guy," according to the New York Post.
Tony Bobulinski has implicated both Joe Biden and his brother Jim, alleging that they were involved in Hunter Biden's business dealings with China. The "email is genuine," and he confirmed that he was one of those who received it, and that then VP Joe Biden was "the big guy."
Bobulinski describes himself as a "37-year Army Intelligence officer, the son of a 20+ year career Naval Officer and the brother of a 28-year career Naval Flight Officer." He served in the Navy and "held a high level security clearance and was an instructor and then CTO for Naval Nuclear Power Training Command." He notes that his political leanings, and any campaign donations he's made, have been for Democrats.
His statement, in part, reads: "The reference to 'the big guy' in the much publicized May 13, 2017 email is in fact a reference to Joe Biden. The other 'JB' referenced in that email is Jim Biden, Joe’s brother.
"Hunter Biden called his dad 'the big guy' or 'my Chairman,' and frequently referenced asking him for his sign-off or advice on various potential deals that we were discussing. 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.
"I realized the Chinese were not really focused on a healthy financial ROI. They were looking at this as a political or influence investment. Once I realized that Hunter wanted to use the company as his personal piggy bank by just taking money out of it as soon as it came from the Chinese, I took steps to prevent that from happening.
"The Johnson Report connected some dots in a way that shocked me—it made me realize the Bidens had gone behind my back and gotten paid millions of dollars by the Chinese, even though they told me they hadn’t and wouldn’t do that to their partners."
The Johnson Report was issued in September 2020, by two joint committees the US Senate Committee on Homeland Security and the US Senate Committee on Finance. It alleged that Hunter Biden's Ukraine business dealings constituted a conflict of interest for then VP Joe Biden, who was the point-person on Ukraine during the Obama administration.
Joe Biden has said on multiple occasions that he's never spoken to his son about his business dealings. This, however, does not hold up under scrutiny. The Post reports that Hunter had been on Air Force Two, along with his dad, for a trip to China. It was on that trip that Hunter "landed a $1.5 billion commitment from a government-controlled Chinese bank."
That 2013 trip, where Biden was on an official state trip to Beijing, saw Hunter meet with Jonathan Li, and investment banker. According to the BBC, Hunter said, in an interview with the New Yorker, that he had met up with Li for "a cup of coffee." Yet it was less than two weeks later that BHR Partners, a private equity fund, was approved by Chinese authorities.
BHR, of which Hunter had a 10 percent share, saw Li as chief executive and Hunter on the board of directors. BHR touts itself as the "first cross-border investment private equity firm," and is the cross-border investment arm of Bohai Industrial Investment Fund." BHR is backed by the Bank of China, China Development Bank Capital, Harvest Fund, Postal Savings Bank of China, China Life and the National Council of Social Security Fund, as well as US advisors.
According to Hunter Biden's lawyer, Hunter Biden was in an unpaid position on the board, because he had an "interest in seeking ways to bring Chinese capital to international markets." That same letter states that Hunter Biden's 10 percent share did not come until 2017, which he did not relinquish until July 2020, per a report from BHR.
The email that refers to Joe Biden as 'the big guy' was dated May 2017, which is after Biden left his office as Vice President, but as the Post reports, "it's not known when discussions among the partners and with the Chinese first began. Certainly they started before the e-mail."
