White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany emphasized the seriousness of emails provided by former Hunter Biden business partner Tony Bobulinski, noting that Joe Biden has yet to clearly refute their validity.
The emails and text messages indicated that the former vice president may have met with individuals connected with Hunter’s business dealings with Ukrainian and Chinese firms.
“Look think about this: so Joe Biden still has not denied the substance of this allegation,” McEnany told “Fox & Friends” Thursday. “We have emails, we have text messages, we have a firsthand witness in Tony Bobulinkski that says that Joe Biden is compromised by China, he profited off China, during his time in government profited off foreign governments on the taxpayers’ dime.”
The Democratic presidential nominee had previously claimed that he never talked to his son about his business activities.
McEnany also blasted media outlets for not giving the story the attention she feels it deserves, pointing to how Biden has yet to face tough scrutiny over it.
“This is the great journalistic malpractice of our time that they refused to ask questions,” McEnany said.
After Bobulinski spoke with Fox News’ Tucker Carlson, several major news outlets ignored the interview.
The former business partner outlined how an alleged meeting with Joe Biden took place on May 2, 2017. Bobulinski also said that he expressed concern to the former vice president’s brother Jim Biden, about Joe Biden’s alleged ties to a possible joint venture with a Chinese energy firm and how they could impact a presidential bid.
Bobulinski claimed that Jim chuckled and said, “Plausible deniability.”
Despite those revelations, outlets including CNN, MSNBC, and the New York Times had not covered what Bobulinski had to say.
‘Plausible deniability’: Tony Bobulinski claims Biden family shrugged off concerns about risk to 2020 bid
Tony Bobulinski, a former business associate of Hunter Biden, claimed in an interview Tuesday that the Biden family shrugged off concerns that Joe Biden’s alleged ties to his son’s business deals could put a future presidential campaign at risk.
Bobulinski, in an interview with Fox News’ “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” said he raised concerns in 2017 to the former vice president’s brother Jim Biden, about Joe Biden’s alleged ties to a possible joint venture with a Chinese energy firm.
“I think the American people should be demanding that this is investigated,” he said.
He also said he had received death threats and had spoken to the FBI about the danger to him and his family, but hoped he would become irrelevant as the facts came out.
“Hopefully I will go stage left and hopefully our government and appropriate people in the Biden family will go on record and provide facts to the American people,” he said.
