CLAIM: The The Bharat Express News alleged on Saturday that Republicans have provided no evidence that President Joe Biden and his son Hunter “discussed” about the family’s foreign business dealings.
VERDICT: FALSE. Republicans have filed a recording of Joe Biden leaving a voicemail for Hunter Biden about a business deal with a Chinese energy company, along with whistleblowers who have stated that Joe Biden was deeply involved in the Biden family business.
On Saturday, the The Bharat Express News falsely claimed: “Joe Biden has said he never spoke to his son about his foreign affairs, and nothing the Republicans have brought forward suggests otherwise.”
Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH), the top Republican on the House Judiciary Committee, stated way back in 2020 that whistleblower Tony Bobulinski, one of Hunter’s business partners, had met with Joe Biden twice to negotiate a business deal in China with CEFC China. discuss. Energy Co.
“I have dealt directly with the Biden family, including Joe Biden,” said Bobulinski mention.
“An email found on Hunter’s laptop” outlined the proposed percentage breakdown of equity in a company set up for a joint venture with CEFC China Energy Co. New York Post message about the CEFC energy deal. The proposed business venture, sent March 13, 2017, contained “10 held by H for the big man?”
The CEFC deal was between Bobulinski, the Biden family and senior members of the Chinese Communist Party. Bobulinski confirmed that “the big man” was a reference to Joe Biden.
Second, Joe Biden left a voicemail on Hunter’s phone about a New York Times story that reported on the CEFC deal in which Joe Biden remarked, “I think you’re clear,” a reference to the family’s business deal. The voicemail directly contradicted Joe Biden’s statement in 2019 that he and his son had not discussed the family’s business plans.
“Hey buddy, it’s daddy. It is Wednesday evening 8.15 pm. If you get the chance, give me a call. Nothing urgent. I just wanted to talk to you,” Joe Biden said in the audio recording.
“I thought the article that was published online and will be in the Times tomorrow was good. I think you are clear. And anyway if you get a chance call me I love you,” the message ended.
Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-NY), the House’s third most senior Republican, told the New York Post the voicemail “is just the tip of the iceberg” regarding the evidence against the “Biden Crime Family.”
“Joe Biden said he ‘never’ spoke to Hunter about his business dealings. That’s just not true. We need to know what Joe Biden knew and when he knew it,” Stefanik said.
“This voicemail is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the mounting evidence against the Biden Crime Family. When Republicans take back Congress, we will use our oversight powers of Congress to get to the truth for every American as a matter of national security,” she added.
Third, in 2015, the day after Joe Biden dined with Hunter’s Ukrainian foreign business associates, one of them emailed Hunter his thanks for the “opportunity to meet your father.” The After reported:
The never-before-revealed encounter is mentioned in an appreciation message that Vadym Pozharskyi, an advisor to Burisma’s board of directors, reportedly sent Hunter Biden on April 17, 2015, about a year after Hunter joined Burisma’s board of directors against a reported salary of up to $50,000 per month.
“Dear Hunter, thank you for inviting me to Washington DC and giving you the opportunity to meet your father [sic] together for a while. It’s real estate [sic] an honor and a pleasure,” the email reads.
An earlier email from May 2014 also shows Pozharskyi, reportedly Burisma’s third exec, asking Hunter for “advice on how you might use your influence” on behalf of the company.
In 2018 and 2020, Breitbart Senior Contributor and Government Accountability Institute President Peter Schweizer published Secret realms and Profiles in corruption. Each book reached number 1 on the New York Times bestseller list and revealed how Hunter Biden and Joe Biden flew to China aboard Air Force Two in 2013 before Hunter’s company signed a $1.5 billion deal with a subsidiary of the Bank of China of China less than two weeks into the trip. the Chinese government. Schweizer’s work also revealed other large and lucrative foreign deals and favoritism by the Biden family. Breitbart Political Editor Emma-Jo Morris’ research work at the New York Post on the Hunter Biden “laptop from hell” also made international headlines when she revealed, along with Miranda Devine, that Joe Biden was heavily involved in Hunter’s businesses and even appeared to have a 10 percent stake in a company that had the scion formed with officials at the highest levels of the Chinese Communist Party.
