Hunter Biden's business partner confirms email showing Joe being offered 10 percent stake in Chinese business deal.

Tony Bobulinski will provide documents to the government authorities which allegedly support the claim. The documents have not been verified yet.

On Oct. 14, the New York Post published an article based on leaked private photos from Hunter Biden's allegedly personal hard drive, including photos that appeared to show the Biden sleeping and screenshots of unverified emails claiming that he had used his position on the board of an energy company in Ukraine to set up a meeting with his father. The hard drive is reportedly with Rudy Giuliani, US President Donald Trump's lawyer, and no media organisation has been able to independently verify the contents of the hard drive and whether the hard drive belongs to Hunter Biden. Giuliani has handed over the laptop to the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) "claiming it contains emails that show a variety of misdeeds and corruption — even if the emails aren’t all verified, don’t offer conclusive evidence of the misdeeds and bear the hallmarks of a Russian disinformation effort," reported Politico.

One of the several claims making rounds is that Hunter Biden's business partner, Tony Bobulinski, who confirmed to Fox News, that one of the emails showing Joe Biden being offered 10 percent stake in Chinese business deals is genuine. He further, "said the family “aggressively leveraged the Biden family name to make millions” from foreign entities. The email shows there was a discussion of “remuneration packages” for six people involved in a business deal with the now-bankrupt CEFC China Energy Co and it states “20” for “H” and “10 held by H for the big guy?” wherein big guy allegedly refers to Joe Biden.

However, the unverified emails do not conclusively show Joe Biden acting corruptly, or interceding on behalf of his son, when he was the Vice President. Bobulinski has agreed to provide documents to the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee that allegedly show Joe Biden was going to get a 10 percent cut from the venture, according to Breitbart and the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee is yet to deliver its judgement.

Many experts have questioned the validity and timing of the report published by the New York Post and more than 50 former intelligence officials have signed a letter stating their belief the story is part of a foreign disinformation campaign.
