Fox News: Hunter Biden Docs Don’t Show Direct Link to Joe, But Tough Questions Remain

The claim by Hunter Biden’s ex-business partner that former Vice President Joe Biden was intimately involved in talks about his son’s business dealings in China doesn’t appear to be backed up in emails related to the venture, Fox News reported Friday.
But the outlet said hard questions nevertheless remain for Biden about how much knowledge he had of his son’s business activities while he held office during the Obama administration.
The news outlet reported it had examined documents from the younger Biden’s former partner Tony Bobulinski, who is providing evidence in Senate and FBI probes of the Bidens’ business dealings. Fox said the docs didn’t show the elder Biden himself had business dealings with Sino Hawk Holdings, or took any payments from them or the Chinese.
The issue occupied center stage during Thursday evening’s fractious debate between President Donald Trump and Joe Biden. Trump, spotlighting allegations that influence peddling had netted the Bidens millions from foreign sources, prodded the elder Biden to explain the matter transparently to the American people. Biden, in turn, denied receiving so much as a penny from foreign sources.
Despite Fox News’ reported findings, the outlet did stress that the matter is far from settled or sorted. Its reporting said there are lingering questions about how much the elder Biden knew of his son’s business arrangements in China, the Ukraine and the like.
Bobulinski provided text messages and emails related to his venture first to the Wall Street Journal, primarily from the spring and summer of 2017, which don’t show Biden’s son or uncle James Biden talking about Joe Biden’s supposed role.
The Journal reported the Bidens’ joint venture never got funds from CEFC China Energy Co., where Bobulinski was a partner, and corporate records reviewed by the newspaper indicate Joe Biden had no role in the discussions. https://tpc.googlesyndication.com/safeframe/1-0-37/html/container.html
