Hunter Biden’s former business associates James Gilliar and Tony Bobulinski have some text messages that they probably hoped would remain under wraps. Unfortunately, these messages have fallen into the hands of Fox News and they are damning. In 2017, these men were talking about setting up a deal with a Chinese energy company.
Of course, this dynamic duo wanted to get Joe Biden into the fold as well. It would be a delicate balancing act to keep him involved because he would need to avoid face to face meetings. Evetually, Bobulinski ended up asking Gilliar why they needed to have Joe on board if Hunter was already present. “With H demons, could be good to have a back up, he strengthens our USP to Chinese as it looks like a truly family business, and I like the dude,” he said.
USP, in this context, could stand for U.S. persons or unique selling points. Whatever the case may be in this instance, having two Bidens involved insinuates that the entire family would be involved. Once it came time for them to meet with the Chinese chairman, they knew that they would need some real star power present.
These two wanted Joe to attend but apparently, that was a no go. Despite their texts to the contrary, he did make his way to the meeting after all. “Man U are right let’s get the company set up, then tell H and family the high stakes and get Joe involved,” Bobulinski texted Gilliar on May 11, 2017. The texts do not provide any clear indication that Joe Biden was ever involved.
Near as we can tell, they were definitely hoping to trade on the Biden name and use their connections to him for their own benefit. The scheming continued later that month, when Gilliar issued a crucial reminder to Bobulinski. “Don’t mention Joe being involved, it’s only when u are face to face, I know u know that but they are paranoid,” he said.
The suggestion is easy enough to understand. It’s reasonable to assume that the Chinese did not want a huge paper trail. As the Fox News story demonstrates, Gilliar was probably right to be concerned. However, this all stands as a direct contradiction of what Gilliar said when he spoke with the Wall Street Journal earlier this year.
“I am unaware of any involvement at any time of the former Vice President,” he said at the time. Fox News‘ request for comment on the matter was denied. Sure, it may be true that Joe Biden was not involved but Hunter Biden’s associates were clearly trying their best to lure him into the fold. These men knew that the deal probably depended on their connection to the Biden family.
This should not come as a surprise to anyone, especially in the wake of the Hunter Biden investigation. He has yet to share details about the federal investigation that is currently taking place but we are sure that some interesting details are about to come to light. These investigations may even uncover some news about Biden’s dealings with China.
According to Fox News, “A well-placed government source told Fox News that Hunter Biden has been a subject/target of the grand jury investigation. According to the source, a “target” means that there is a “high probability that person committed a crime,” while a “subject” is someone you “don’t know for sure” has committed a crime.” Well, that certainly clears things up, doesn’t it?
While things are not entirely clear at the moment, we are sure of one thing. The Biden family needs to be worried. When you have behaved like a mafia don for this long, it is only a matter of time before the Feds arrive. Suspicious Activity Reports have been issued about their foreign financial transactions. Until a grand jury is able to issue an indictment, we are going to be left to wonder what comes next.
