Witness: Joe Biden Was “The Big Guy” [Updated]

A former business partner to Hunter Biden, Tony Bobulinski, has made a bombshell statement that not only are the emails on the Biden laptop authentic but the reference to giving a cut to “the big guy” was indeed a reference to former Vice President Joe Biden. More emails are emerging that show Hunter Biden referring to his family as his asset in these dealings.

The emails that have attracted the most attention refer to an actual meeting of Joe  Biden with these foreign figures and one referring to a proposed equity split of “20” for “H” and “10 held by H for the big guy?” Bobulinski confirms that “H” was used for Hunter Biden and that his father was routinely called “the big guy” in these discussions.

Another email Bobulinski being instructed by James Gilliar not to make any mention of the former veep’s involvement: “Don’t mention Joe being involved, it’s only when u [sic] are face to face, I know u [sic] know that but they are paranoid.”

 Bobulinski said he was brought on as CEO by Hunter Biden and James Gilliar and stated that he believes Joe Biden was lying in denying any knowledge of these dealings, stating Hunter “frequently referenced asking him for his sign-off or advice on various potential deals.”  He added that “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.”

His statement reads in part:

I am the CEO of Sinohawk Holdings which was a partnership between the Chinese operating through CEFC/Chairman Ye and the Biden family. I was brought into the company to be the CEO by James Gilliar and Hunter Biden. 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.

This is obviously just one side and the documents do not show a direct role or benefit for Joe Biden. However, it would seem that between the FBI statement and this witness statement, there is ample foundation for media scrutiny.  Yet, organizations like NPR has dismissed the story on Thursday as a “distraction.”

In prior columns and in my testimony in the Trump impeachment, I asked if the Ukraine allegations against Trump would be different if the Congress believed that there was influence peddling or pay-to-play schemes by the Biden family. As I wrote in September 2019:

Despite efforts of critics to downplay the underlying allegations, the Biden affair would be relevant to the merits of such a trial. If Trump simply picked up the phone and asked a foreign leader to investigate Elizabeth Warren without any outstanding allegations of corruption, it would be impossible to defend. The problem here is that the Biden contracts do appear to involve corruption, precisely the type that Biden lambasted when he bragged about getting the Ukrainian prosecutor fired.

If one agrees that the windfall contracts secured by Hunter Biden were obvious influence peddling, then Trump pushing for an investigation into that possible crime becomes more defensible. It does not, however, make it right. Trump clearly tripped another wire for possible impeachment, immediately after the special counsel made his final report on prior controversies. Congress is justified in investigating, and the transcript is not the entirety of the evidence that might show the intent or act or corruption. All this is why House Democrats still need to find the quid.

I have written for years that Hunter Biden was clearly influence peddling and he contradicted his father’s denial of any knowledge of his dealings.  The media can continue to hold its breath for weeks to try to avoid the obvious in this story.  That could well guarantee Biden the presidency but it will destroy the media’s credibility for years.

  1. Wooooooooooooooooooooooo! Vote Trump & leave all these Commie/Fasist type American Hating Chicken Choking Wankers Crying Like a B.itch.

    1. BTW: The video that is supposed to have pasted was Godsmack: Cryin like a B.itch!!

      Or We could go we this one Avenged Sevenfold – Hail to the (Prez Trump) King Ragnar

  2. Baba Looey, “Hey, Queeksdraw, I theen,..,”

    Quick Draw McGraw, “Now hoooooooold on there, Baba Looey, I’ll do the thinnin’ around here and I’m thinin’ that the whole Harris-Biden-Obama Gang is nothin’ but crooooooks!”

  3. Trump has lied roughly 25,000 times since he was President. Why isn’t FoxNews and Turley covering that?

    Oh no, there is this one time, you see, when it looks like Biden May have lied, if you read a bunch of stuff into some things that may or may not be emails.

    Even if true, Biden is behind by 24,999 in the lying count.

    1. The metrics don’t support your lies and prevarication – the DJIA, employment numbers, etc.

      In any event, Americans enjoy freedom and free enterprise and government was not established to dictate or otherwise run peoples lives or limit or restrict their endeavors or tax for charity or regulate anything other than, money, commerce between states and land and naval Forces.

      You can’t grasp the scope or breadth of American freedom. You are a communist traitor.

      Ask Joe if he’ll share his criminal ill-gotten proceeds from China, Russia, etc. with you.

  4. Jonathan: Do we look like a bunch of gullible fools out here? There is simply no authenticated evidence to back up Guilani, Steve Bannon’s and your claim that a blind computer store owner received a computer from Hunter Binden who forgot to remove the hard drive containing thousands of emails implicating he and his father in a influence peddling scheme in Ukraine. It will take the FBI forensic experts weeks if not months to go through all the emails alone. But if you believe in conspiracy theories maybe you think Hunter Binden chose this particular store because the owner was blind and couldn’t ID him. Or that the blind computer store owner chose Rudy Guiliani to give a copy of the hard drive to because he only wanted the truth to come out? Giuliani has a history of throwing mud hoping some it will stick. He works hand in hand with Donald Trump who has turned mudsling into an art form. Nothing coming out of the mouth of Rudy Giuliani should be believed especially when it comes just 2 weeks before the election and can’t possibly be thoroughly investigated.

    All this doesn’t mean there isn’t a real “October surprise” that is coming from the mostly unlikely of sources: Sacha Baron Cohen, the provocateur and prankster, who won an award for his first movie “Borat”. In his new film, “Borat Subequent Moviefilm”, Giuliani makes a cameo appearance as himself. In the film the gullible Giuliani is lured into a NY hotel to be interviewed by a reporter, portrayed by Cohen’s 24 year old daughter although she purports to be only 15. The reporter tells Giuliani she works for a far right fake news outlet called “Patriots Report”. and wants him to sit down for an interview. Not wanting to miss an opportunity to get some publicity Giuliani agrees because the reporter is young and attractive and comes onto him. During the interview Giuliani goes on repeating the discredited conspiracy theory about the origins of the coronavirus: “China manufactured the virus and let it out and they deliberately spread it around the world.” At some point the reporter suggests the interview move to her hotel bedroom containing a lot of hidden cameras. Probably thinking he might get “lucky” Giuliani readily agrees. What follows is a photo of Giuliani in a very compromising position (on his back on the bed) reaching …(Parents: You better tell you young children to leave the room!) down inside his pants with his hands when Sacha Cohen storms in the bedroom shouting: “”She’s 15, she’s too old for you!”. Obviously an allusion to Giuliana’s habit of hanging out with Jeffrey Epstein and his many underage female friends.

    Now to be fair to Rudy in a later radio interview he claimed the bedroom scene was a “complete fabrication” and was in retaliation for his “smoking gun” story in the NY Post about Hunter Biden. Giuliani also claimed: “We are preparing much bigger dumps of the hard drive from hell, of which Joe Biden will be unable to defend or hide from. I have the receipts”. I say a photo of Rudy on his back on the bed is worth a thousand words of denial. That photo would be hard to explain to any wife! So I guess we will all have to wait for the “much bigger dumps” from the alleged Hunter Biden hard drive to see if anything sticks. And you will be like the little boy who finds himself in a room full of horse poop, jumping up and down looking for the pony he knows must be there!

    1. The FBI, Giuliani, NYPost, the Computer Shop Owner, and no doubt some others all have either the actual Computer and Hard Drive or copies of the Hard Drive and that is easily analyzed to determine its authenticity.

      You have two People who have gone public providing their own Digital devices that contain corroborating information to include emails and texts sent from devices owned by Hunter Biden and others that can be compared to the contents of the Biden Computer.

      Both of those people are testifying UNDER OATH to the FBI and Senate Investigators.

      They are in the open, seen and heard by the Public, and are available to be cross examined.

      As a former Federal Criminal Investigator who did Fraud Investigations…..I would love to have had such evidence and testimony to predicate a very detailed investigation.

      The old connect the dots thing would be child’s play in this case.

      The Rule in Fraud Cases is simple….Follow the Money.

      I would start with all of the families Banking Accounts and Financial Holdings…..and start following the transactions back to the Source.

      I would also invite the IRS into it as well…..remembering they got Al Capone and not the FBI.

      In fact….I do not trust the FBI to conduct a proper investigation of such matters involving Politicians.

    Perhaps he doesn’t know or doesn’t care this happened:

    ” In September they arranged a private meeting between Steele and reporters from The Washington Post, The New York Times, The New Yorker, ABC News, and other outlets. The results were disappointing, as none published any stories before the election.[56]

    Jane Mayer has described how, in “late summer, Fusion set up a series of meetings, at the Tabard Inn, in Washington, between Steele and a handful of national-security reporters. … Despite Steele’s generally cool manner, he seemed distraught about the Russians’ role in the election.” Mayer attended one of the meetings. None of these news organizations ran any stories about the allegations at that time.[21]”

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Steele_dossier#cite_note-Mayer_3/12/2018-21

    The major media he accuses of corrupt and partisan practices, like the FBI, protected Trump from accusations not yet proven until after the election. He doesn’t care, he wants Trump to ride another allegation – false or not – into the WH for a 2nd term of incompetence and corruption.

    1. Yeah Joe start thinking of excuses and plotting IMPEACHEMENT II because JOE IS GONNA LOSE

      https://www.westernjournal.com/damning-video-appears-show-just-much-trouble-biden-harris-campaign/?utm_source=

      but get out there and vote people! vote like your lives depend on it! the average got hearted Democrat voter may not be excited–

      BUT BLM AND ANTIFA ARE!

      THIS IS YOUR CHANCE TO SEND A MESSAGE WHAT YOU THINK ABOUT THE SUMMER OF RIOTS 2020

    2. I spoke to my family in Cuba today. Even they are aware of the Hunter Biden crack pipe mess. If Cubans on the Island know about it, voting Americans do too. For 3+ years Democrats have sought to ruin Donald Trump. then along came a laptop. Some people just can’t handle their drugs.

      President Trump brought former Hunter Biden associate Tony Bobulinski as his guest to the final presidential debate Thursday night.

      Bobulinski is a retired lieutenant in the U.S. Navy and the CEO of Sinohawk Holdings, which he explained “was a partnership between the Chinese operating through CEFC/Chairman Ye and the Biden family.” He said he was brought on as CEO by Hunter Biden and James Gilliar and on Thursday released emails and text messages that appear to show Joe Biden’s involvement with his son’s foreign business dealings.

      Washington Post? nah
      NY Times? when hell freezes over
      MSNBC, NPR, NBC, CNN, ABC, Politico? they’d rather take bleach intravenously.

      Fox News…who else

      https://www.foxnews.com/politics/president-trump-plans-to-bring-hunter-biden-associate-tony-bobulinski-as-guest-to-debate

      1. Hunter Biden is a recovering addict, like many Americans. Trump’s brother was an alcoholic. Joe Biden isn’t Hunter Biden, just like Donald Trump isn’t Fred Trump Jr.

            1. Trump is not law-abiding. You simply care less about white collar crime than you do about street crime.

              Trump is a con artist. You’ve been conned.

          1. We demand that Joe Biden release the names of the “anonymous” donors to his various “nonprofit” organizations. Start with the names of the “anonymous” donors from China.

          1. Which falsified figure represents the $5 million “non-secured, forgivable” loan from China, with “10 percent [was to be] held by H for the Big Guy” and intended to go to Bobulinski at Sinohawk, Inc. (Sino = China, hawk = Biden’s favorite bird). “Instead, I found out, from Senator [Ron] Johnson’s September report that the $5 million was sent in August 2017 to entities affiliated with Hunter,” said Bobulinski. Where is that line of accounting on Joke Biden’s tax returns?

          2. When ever was Biden audited by the IRS?

            When ever have any Senator or Congressman or other President or Vice President ever been audited by the IRS?

            Get back with me on that one will you?

            Until the Bidens are audited by the IRS….those returns are just as suspect as are Trump’s…..which is an equal fair standard applied to all of the parties.

            The Trump business is very large….worth Billions of Dollars as stated by third party evaluation.

            That means a very large and complex operation that if audited takes a lot of time.

            Biden was one of the poorest of the Senate and bragged about that in his campaigning in the past.

            How long would it take to audit him and Jill or Hunter or the Brother(s)?

            Trump is being audited…..let’s see the Bidens undergo the exact same scrutiny…..what say?

  6. Election 2020 has been so thoroughly corrupted, it must be postponed indefinitely.

    Republicans must seek an immediate injunction.

  7. China is irrefutably and absolutely the enemy of the U.S. in the “cold war” phase of the next, looming conflict.

    Joe Biden took millions of dollars in bribes, in the form of a non-secured, forgivable loan, from China, the enemy.

    Joe Biden engaged “…in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort.”

    Joe Biden committed treason, per the U.S. Constitution.
    ____________________________________________

    “…in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort.”

    Article 3, Section 3

    Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort. No Person shall be convicted of Treason unless on the Testimony of two Witnesses to the same overt Act, or on Confession in open Court.

  8. It will be an interesting debate.

    President Trump plans to bring Hunter Biden associate Tony Bobulinski as guest to debate

    Hunter Biden’s former business partner releases emails about 2017 Chinese energy company deal

    Tony Bobulinski tells Fox News the Biden family ‘aggressively leveraged’ its name in foreign business dealings; Mike Emanuel reports from Washington.

    President Trump is expected to bring former Hunter Biden associate Tony Bobulinski as his guest to the final presidential debate Thursday night, Fox News has learned.

    Bobulinski is a retired lieutenant in the U.S. Navy and the CEO of Sinohawk Holdings, which he explained “was a partnership between the Chinese operating through CEFC/Chairman Ye and the Biden family.” He said he was brought on as CEO by Hunter Biden and James Gilliar and on Thursday released emails and text messages that appear to show Joe Biden’s involvement with his son’s foreign business dealings. He was slated to deliver a statement to the media before the debate, and will say that he is turning his electronic devices over to the FBI.

  9. Are you saying Hunter Biden was Influence Peddling? How much does it cost to have a Mar-a-Lago membership and have access to the President pretty much every weekend when he is down there to play golf? $200,000 per year, in Trump’s pocket – not for his campaign – for him personally. You can get your picture taken with the President often. This price doubled when Trump became President. That is influence peddling. It is out in plain sight.

    Now, when Hunter and Joe build a private club and charge membership fees to see President Biden every week I will worry about their influence peddling.

    Now, if we had full access to all of the emails of the Trump crime family, we would learn; I am sure, much more influence peddling. We know Trump associates like Guiliani engage in all kinds of influence peddling – Lev Parnas can tell you as much.

    1. oh lol right what about lev parnas. i almost forgot about that guy. another flash in the pan, failed Democrat scheme to unhorse Trump

      well just stick to the legal way ok? get out there and vote against Trump if you want and maybe if you can all pry your fat fannies off the couch and do it in sufficient number, then you want have to make a stab at fake impeachment #2

  10. So a “bombshell statement” that an email reference to “the Big Guy” is in fact, Joe Biden, means the verdict is in, case closed, Biden lied, he’s corrupt? Hands up, anybody remember the first thing Trump did after getting elected? Answer: He agreed to pay $25 million to settle a class action lawsuit filed by thousands of Americans who were conned & in some cases bankrupted by his Trump University business scam. During the 2016 campaign, Trump publicly attacked one of the judges presiding over the case.

    Looks like corruption is all in the eyes of the beholder.

    1. If you think that a vice president of the United Sates selling influence to a foreign adversary is the same effect on the nation that Trumps university fiasco was you flunked your civics exam.

    2. our political system is corrupt. one of the problems is both sides tend to ignore the corruption on their own side and pretend it only happens on the other.

      the bigger problem here, however, is that the left has made the ‘Trump is corrupt’ argument for years about things that were either shown to have no credibility or were relatively minor. this scheme publicized by the ny post is a far, far worse case of corruption (if true) than anything trump has been accused of.

      even if biden wins and this is true, then he’s totally compromised by his own party because if powerful enough players decide KH is more suitable, they can cut a deal with her and threaten to make a stink if old joe doesn’t retire. that’s a coup brought to us by a media failing to do their jobs, or perhaps more accurately, as participants in the coup.

  11. Not sure why a legal scholar is covering these Trump campaign allegations in this medium and why he is so concerned that other parts of the media do not cover them?

    1. this blog focuses on free speech issues. social media platforms are blocking this story based on the argument that it’s not a trustworthy story, while at the same time the social media engines have no problem allowing all kinds of untrustworthy statements whose politics they agree with.

      this abjectly unfair censoring by the social media engines then lends an excuse for the mainstream media and democrats to dismiss the story.

      1. Send a message to the Sillicon Valley Billionaires who presume to rule us like slaves–

        VOTE TRUMP

        it’s the second to last thing we can do to make our voice heard

        the last thing? well, think that over. if you don’t want to go there– put in the work, haul your whole family and every decent friend to the polls — and vote

    2. Really!?! You’re not sure why? Probably because the supposed credible media isn’t doing it’s job! The “credible” media is a disgrace and is doing irreparable harm to our country! The majority of Americans don’t trust their reporting anymore. Americans deserve an answer from the Bidens. Joe Biden is running for President for god’s sake!! Did you see him this past Friday night when a CBS reporter asked him about this story? He attacked the reporter and blamed him for asking! This story has been hanging around way too long and needs to be fully investigated. Outrage and blaming the reporter for asking doesn’t cut it anymore. Come on man!

    3. CC: “. . . these Trump campaign allegations . . .”

      Nice try. It’s a Hunter Biden/Joe Biden corruption scheme. And the fat lady is singing.

  12. “but it will destroy the media’s credibility for years”

    You can’t “destroy” something that doesn’t exist.

    The MSM came completely out of the closet as The Ministry of Truth back in 2008 after the so-called “financial crisis” when it began openly carrying water for the Banksters, and completely ignored the fact that Obama’s alter ego Eric “Too Big To Jail” Holder was not only not going to prosecute any of the lying, cheating, thieves, that caused the meltdown, he and Barry were going to act as their personal shineboys in return for personal enrichment.

    Which is why Barry now owns a $14.5 million dollar beach house in Martha’s Vineyard.

    1. HALLELUJAH Barry Soetero is back on the campaign trail!

      AWESOME!

      Sleepy Joe, Kamel-a, and Barack Hussein Obama! What a trio— behold your future Americans, if you do not GET UP AND VOTE!

  13. Will this question be asked by the moderator at the presidential debate tonight?

    ‘Can we stop acting like it is a major imposition for a single member of the media to ask Biden this very specific question: have you ever received monetary interest relating to any deal involving Hunter Biden, or has any asset ever been held in trust for you in any such deal?’ @benshapiro

    1. I’m sure you want Trump to be asked a similar question: have you ever received monetary interest relating to any deal involving any of your children, or has any asset ever been held in trust for you in any such deal?

    1. send the Biden family foreign corrupt practicers and message you don’t accept their ruling us like dogs and VOTE TRUMP

  14. It’s called ‘getting caught.’ The media can call it a “distraction” or a “disinformation” or a “conspiracy theory”….but the fact is this: they got caught. And it makes Joe Biden look really bad.

    Also, media people — it’s not impossible to “verify the laptop”….you ASK some questions. You don’t just sit on it, or dismiss the story by saying “it can’t be verified” and ‘oh well’ that’s why we are not reporting on it. As old Joe would say: Come on, man!

    1. Anon: “It’s called ‘getting caught.’”

      Through all the noise, a voice of clarity. Thank you for that comment.

  15. When will Joe Biden issue his

    “SONOROUS MEA CULPA,”

    before or after Kama-lie Harris is elected president (i.e. ensconced by the Deep Deep State)?

    1. George, quit the defeatist talk and get busy organizing your social circle to get out there and VOTE

      every vote counts. have you voted yet George? I have

      1. Mr. K,

        I voted TWICE.

        The communists (liberals, progressives, socialists, democrats, RINOs) furthered “Crazy Abe” Lincoln’s nullification of the Constitution and gave my wife a vote in 1920.

        Haven’t you heard?

        I love my wife.
