Hunter Biden's ex-business partner says Joe Biden talked to his son about deal ...

A man who describes himself as a former business partner of Hunter Biden says he heard him and his father, Joe Biden, discuss his dealings with a mysterious Chinese energy firm in 2017 and that the former vice president was due to receive a share of the profits.

Tony Bobulinski told the New York Post on Wednesday that he personally witnessed Biden discuss business deals with his son, Hunter, contradicting claims by the former vice president.

Bobulinski also told the Post that he received an email from one of Hunter Biden’s business partners involved in a deal with a Chinese energy firm in May 2017 which promised a 10 per cent cut for a person known as ‘the big guy.’

The Post has claimed that ‘the big guy’ is Joe Biden.

The May 13, 2017, email sent to Hunter Biden by James Gilliar, who worked at a consulting firm J2cR, has been authenticated by others included on the chain, according to Fox News.

Fox News and the Post, both of which are owned by ally Rupert Murdoch, also claimed that sources have confirmed Joe Biden was 'the big guy' listed among the six people who would receive the payments. 

The payees were only identified with initials and nicknames with a note stating that 'the big guy' would get his payment through 'H'.

'H' is his son Hunter, sources told Fox, who would receive 20 percent.

Titled 'Expectations', it details 'remuneration packages' for six people in a business venture.

Hunter was identified as the 'chair/vice chair depending on agreement with CEFC', an apparent reference to the now bankrupt Shanghai conglomerate China Energy Co.

His pay was '850' and the correspondence also noted how he 'has some office expectations he will elaborate'.

The email also outlines a 'provisional agreement' where 80 per cent of the 'equity' would be shared equally among four people whose initials appear to relate to Hunter and three other recipients. 

The sender of the email, Gilliar, said: 'I am happy to raise any detail with Zang if there is shortfalls?' 

The email divides the equity into '20 H' - meaning 20 per cent equity to Hunter; 20 per cent to RW, meaning Rob Walker, also of the jc2r consultancy; 20 per cent to another man called Tony Bubulinski.

The remaining 20 per cent was split with 10 per cent going to 'Jim' who is otherwise unnamed, and then '10 held by H for the big guy?' 

The big guy was previously unnamed until Fox claimed Friday that it was in reference to Joe Biden. 

Zang appears to be a reference to Zang Jian Jun who was the former executive director of CEFC.

According to the alleged emails published by the Post about huis Chinese dealings, Hunter also struck a deal for $30 million plus bonuses 'based on introductions alone' over three years after his father left office, then was offered a 'much more lasting and lucrative arrangement.'  

The emails were sent when Biden was no longer Vice President and was in office.

The Post's publication of the emails was met with skepticism and prompted Twitter to block users from sharing the link to the original story.

Democrats have claimed that the emails were the product of Russian disinformation, but intelligence officials in the administration deny this. 

The Post released emails and photos purporting to be from Hunter Biden's laptop that lawyer Rudy Giuliani says he got from a computer repair shop owner who gave it to his own lawyer.

‘I’ve seen Vice President Biden saying he never talked to Hunter about his business,’ Bobulinski, who confirmed that ‘the big guy’ was a reference to Joe Biden, told the Post.

‘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, a former Navy veteran, said he was brought in to be a CEO in a joint venture involving the Biden family and Ye Jianming, the chairman and founder of CEFC China Energy.

According to Bobulinski, the joint venture was to include Joe Biden - ‘the Big Guy’ - and his 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 told the Post.

‘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 claimed that the Chinese were pursuing the deal as a ‘political or influence investment’ and that Hunter Biden was ‘using the company as his personal piggy bank by just taking money out of it as soon as it came from the Chinese.’

He told the Post that he ‘took steps to prevent that from happening.’

Bobulinski accused the Bidens of going ‘behind my back’ and receiving millions of dollars from the Chinese ‘even though they told me they hadn’t and wouldn’t do that to their partners.’

‘I would ask the Biden family to address the American people and outline the facts so I can go back to being irrelevant - and so I am not put in a position to have to answer those questions for them,’ he said.

‘I don’t have a political ax to grind; I just saw behind the Biden curtain and I grew concerned with what I saw.

‘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.’

Earlier on Wednesday, Joe Biden ripped Senator Ron Johnson of Wisconsin, a Republican who has used his committee perch to probe Hunter Biden.

Joe Biden also blasted Rudy Giuliani for peddling 'garbage' in his most extensive comments since the release of information said to be from Hunter Biden's laptop.

Biden, doing a local TV interview from his Delaware home, exploded when

, a Wisconsin ABC affiliate, brought up the subject of Hunter Biden's laptop.

He called it a 'desperate campaign' to smear him.

The angry pushback came a day before Biden is to face President Donald on a debate stage in Nashville – with gearing up to accuse his rival of 'corruption' on stage just like he did four years ago.

The Milwaukee station's anchor asked Biden about Johnson's efforts as chair of the Senate Homeland Security Committee, which last month issued a lengthy report on Hunter Biden 'corruption.'

'Wisconsin's Republican Senator Ron Johnson put out a statement — on Homeland Security letterhead — saying Hunter Biden, together with other Biden family members, profited off the Biden name,' Adrienne Pedersen said.

She asked Biden if there was any 'legitimacy' to what Johnson was claiming. 

'None whatsoever!' Biden fumed. 

'This is the same garbage Rudy Giuliani, 's henchman, it's a last-ditch effort in this desperate campaign to smear me and my family.'

Then he noted that GOP Sen. Mitt Romney of Utah had criticized the committee's actions to dig into the Bidens. 

'Even the man who served with him on that committee, the former nominee for the Republican Party, said there's no basis to this,' Biden said.

'And the vast majority of the intelligence people have come out and said there's no basis at all. Ron should be ashamed of himself!' he said.

Biden did not however offer any denial of their contents being genuine. 

The Chinese emails focus on Hunter's dealings with Ye Jianming, the former chairman of CEFC in 2017, after his father had left office and when it was thought he would not run in 2020. 

Ye has not been seen since he was taken into custody by Chinese authorities in 2018 amid rumored links to the Chinese military and intelligence services.
