The Trump Stunt in 2020: Tony Bobulinski
As usual GOP/Trumpian evidence makes no sense and given the Impeachment, will not make a difference. Some of us have held out hope for Tara Reade to make an appearance.
“I don’t have a political ax to grind; I just saw behind the Biden curtain and I grew concerned with what I saw,” Bobulinski told the Post. “The Biden family aggressively leveraged the Biden family name to make millions of dollars from foreign entities even though some were from communist controlled China.”
Newsweek reported on October 22 that the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Government Affairs “is working to validate information being revealed by multiple sources” and has reached out to Bobulinski.
The news comes on the heels of the New York Post’s previous story claiming emails show Hunter Biden leveraged Obama-Biden administration connections to pursue “lucrative deals involving China’s largest private energy company — including one that he said would be ‘interesting for me and my family.’”
Bobulinski said he was a recipient of the May 13, 2017, email published by the New York Post on October 15, 2020, according to the outlet. The email, sent from one of the group partners, disclosed cash and equity positions, as well as a 10% cut for someone called “the big guy,” the New York Post reported.
In his announcement, Bobulinski outed “the big guy” as Joe Biden. He also told the New York Post that the initials “JB” used in the email represent Joe Biden’s brother, Jim Biden.
“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,” Bobulinski stated to the outlet.
Rudy unveiled the fruits of his labor earlier this month when we presented the New York Post with a laptop hard drive that he claims is Hunter Biden’s. The drive features compromising photos and videos of Hunter, who has struggled with addiction. But the main focus has been on Hunter’s business communications, which Trump and his team are attempting to portray as evidence of a corruption racket between Hunter and his dad. On October 14, the Post used that harddrive to publish a story headlined “Biden Secret Emails” on Joe and Hunter’s actions in Ukraine. The story alleges that, as vice president, Joe was making decisions in Ukraine and Russia aimed at enriching Hunter and himself, rather than for the good of the country. (If it feels a bit rich to hear Donald Trump and Donald Trump Jr. claim to be outraged by the possibility of a father using public office to make bank for his son’s business… well, more on that later.)
Many have speculated the alleged laptop hard drive is part of Russian disinformation gambit, though this has not been conclusively proven. The day after the story ran, the Washington Post reported that U.S. intelligence agencies had warned the White House that Giuliani was the target Russian disinformation efforts. Giuliani’s long search for dirt on the Bidens had led him to consort with a member of Ukraine’s parliament who was recently sanctioned by the U.S. government for working as an “active Russian agent… complicit in foreign interference in an attempt to undermine the upcoming 2020 U.S. presidential election.” More than 50 former intelligence officials have signed a letter stating that the story “has all the classic earmarks of a Russian information operation.” Facebook limited sharing of the story over concerns of its veracity; Twitter similarly halted sharing citing concerns over the story’s inclusion of “content obtained through hacking.”
The big picture: Trump is accusing the Bidens of secretly doing what his family publicly does all the time
There is tremendous irony here. As president, Trump never divested from his own businesses, now run by his sons. During his presidency, Trump properties have become notorious dens of influence peddling, likely enriching the entire family. Moreover, Trump has placed his own unqualified daughter and son in law in high positions in the White House, even as they continue to conduct businesses that benefit from the policies they shape.
