Joe Biden was involved in a deal with a Chinese giant — and was expecting a 10 percent cut

In her new book, “Laptop from Hell,” Post columnist Miranda Devine reconstructs the Biden family’s quest for cash by using files left on Hunter Biden’s abandoned laptop. Sunday, she detailed how Hunter and his uncle Jim Biden entered into a deal with Chinese government-linked energy conglomerate CFEC, and contacted businessman Tony Bobulinski to run the enterprise. Here, Bobulinski meets “the big guy” — Joe Biden himself.

Hunter Biden and his Uncle Jim were already waiting for Tony Bobulinski in the lobby bar of the Beverly Hilton when he arrived at 10 p.m. May 2, 2017.

The Bidens had chosen a discreet couch behind a thick marble column where they could see everyone who walked in the front entrance. Joe Biden, who had left the vice president’s office a little more than three months before, was flying into Los Angeles to speak at the prestigious Milken Institute Global Conference and would be joining them at the bar within the hour.

For Bobulinski, 48, a third-generation Navy veteran and Democratic donor, it would be his first meeting with Joe Biden, and he was conscious that he was being vetted for a trusted role orchestrating the Biden family’s existing joint venture with Chinese energy conglomerate CEFC.

“Dad not in now until 11,” Hunter wrote in a WhatsApp message. “Let’s me [you] and Jim meet at 10 at Beverly Hilton where he’s staying.”

When Bobulinski arrived at the bar, Uncle Jim, seven years younger than his brother and more heavyset but still a dead ringer for Joe, greeted him like an old friend, although it was the first time they’d met.

At that hour, the only other person in the bar was casino operator Steve Wynn, sitting with a woman on the other side of the room.

Nothing will happen. The Bidens are untouchable.

Not even worth reading about Biden corruption. It’s just a given.

Impeachable charges. You have to wait until January 2023 when the GOP controls the House/Senate. Probably a list of ten charges possible at present...maybe you could add five more by the end of 2022.

Zero chance of Pubbies impeaching him. They don’t have the stones to do it. No matter what Biden does.

Impeachment charges have already been introduced.

A group of four GOP lawmakers filed articles of impeachment against President Biden, saying he should be removed from office for not securing the border, for the way U.S. troops were removed from Afghanistan and for seeking to impose a ban on evictions even when he said it might not pass constitutional muster.

Ohio Rep. Bob Gibbs (R) is leading the effort, and is joined by fellow GOP Reps. Andy Biggs (Ariz.), Brian Babin (Texas) and Randy Weber (Texas).

This is the second time articles of impeachment have been introduced pertaining to Biden. Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) filed articles of impeachment the day after Biden was sworn into office.....snip....more at thehill.com

I hadn’t realized that Bobulinski played along for a full three years after bro Jim let on, right away, that things were not on the up and up, but were relying on plausible deniability.

Yep.

It’ll be like it never happened. If anyone dares launch a hearing it would be a “partisan investigation” and the question would not be about Biden did, but how they got the information - the latter would be the scandal.

Thank you for the factual reply.

Unfortunately 5/213 = 2.3% of the House GOP members.

Am I missing anything?

With a miniscule percentage like that impeachment has no chance of succeeding.

Honestly, this isn’t even news.

Anybody who bothered to pay attention and read the articles of investigative reporters like John Solomon and Greg Jarrett, already knew who “The Big Guy” allocated 10% of the deal was MONTHS before the 2020 presidential election.

It is “news”. I share the skepticism that anything will come of it, but it should be in the public discourse and Miranda, as usual, has done a good job of summarizing it.
