These accusations must be addressed by Biden. A former business partner on Thursday directly implicated Joseph R. Biden in his son Hunter’s foreign deals to cash in on his father’s political clout. “It was made clear to me that Joe Biden’s involvement was not to be mentioned in writing, but only face to face,” said Tony Bobulinski, who was involved in deals with Joesph and Hunter Biden from 2015 to 2017. He made the claims at a press conference in Tennessee, the site of the final debate between Mr. Trump and the elder Mr. Biden, the Democratic presidential nominee.
Mr. Bobulinski, who served as CEO of the firm Sinohawk set up by the Bidens, provided fresh details about Joseph Biden’s involvement in a deal with Chinese firm linked to the Chinese Communist Party that ultimately funneled $5 million to the Biden family. Mr. Trump invited Mr. Bobulinski to the debate, where, according to reports, the president plans to point him out during the debate and confront Mr. Biden about the questionable deals.
