Hunter Biden is seeking legal action against Tony Bobulinski, a key critic and former associate involved in Hunter Biden’s international business activities. According to a recent report by The Hill, the legal team representing President Biden’s son has called upon federal prosecutors in Washington to launch an investigation into Bobulinski.
Bobulinski gained notoriety as a whistleblower after publicizing his business relationship with Biden. He claims that Hunter Biden frequently leveraged the stature of his father, who was then the Vice President, to gain advantageous dealings with international enterprises.
According to Bobulinski, a deal with a Chinese company was structured to allocate 10% of the profits to someone he referred to as “the big guy,” allegedly Joe Biden.
In correspondence dated October 7, Hunter Biden’s legal counsel, Abbe Lowell, informed U.S. Attorney Matthew Graves of potential falsehoods made by Bobulinski in a 2020 interview with the FBI. NBC News acquired a copy of this letter, which challenges the credibility of Bobulinski’s statements, specifically referring to an FBI interview on October 23, 2020.
Lowell’s letter argues that there is evidence countering Bobulinski’s claims. According to Lowell, his testimony illustrates the lengths to which he and others would go to falsely implicate Hunter Biden and his family in unethical conduct.
Further, Lowell contends that Bobulinski falsely claimed to have attended a meeting in Miami in 2017 between Hunter Biden and Ye Jianming, a Chinese tycoon. Lowell also asserts that the Chinese business arrangement Bobulinski described did not result in any “formal business operations.”
Lowell criticized the dissemination of misinformation for political gain. He pushed for Graves to consider investigating Bobulinski for allegedly making false statements to a federal agent, as per a report by NBC News.
Matthew Graves, who was appointed as the U.S. attorney for the District of Columbia by President Joe Biden in 2021, has not issued a public response to the request.
In the aftermath of Lowell’s letter, Bobulinski has expressed his willingness to give public testimony before Congress, as noted by The Washington Free Beacon. He accused Hunter Biden of attempting to weaponize the Justice Department for personal vendettas.
Bobulinski, through his legal representation, refuted the accusations in Lowell’s letter and expressed eagerness to clarify the issues publicly, asserting that the allegations are baseless.
Bobulinski also challenged the Biden family to join him in congressional testimony, stating his readiness to do so in a public and sworn setting, with the specifics to be determined at their convenience.
Meanwhile, Hunter Biden is embroiled in his legal difficulties with federal authorities. He faces indictment over gun-related charges after a judge in Delaware dismissed the acceptance of a proposed plea deal regarding tax and firearms offenses.
