A man who describes himself as a former business partner of Hunter Biden says he heard him and his father, Joe Biden, discuss his dealings with a mysterious Chinese energy firm in 2017 and that the former vice president was due to receive a share of the profits.

Tony Bobulinski told the New York Post on Wednesday that he personally witnessed Biden discuss business deals with his son, Hunter, contradicting claims by the former vice president.

'I’ve seen Vice President Biden saying he never talked to Hunter about his business.

‘I’ve seen firsthand that that’s not true, because it wasn’t just Hunter’s business, they said they were putting the Biden family name and its legacy on the line.’

He told the Post that he ‘took steps to prevent that from happening.’

Bobulinski also told the Post that he received an email from one of Hunter Biden’s business partners involved in a deal with a Chinese energy firm in May 2017 which promised a 10 per cent cut for a person known as ‘the big guy.’

The Post claims Bobulinski confirmed that ‘the big guy’ is Joe Biden.

Joe Biden took his son Hunter on official trip to China – ten days before communist regime' s bank signed deal with private equity firm Biden jnr runs with John Kerry' s son, book A partnering firm, the Thornton group, described the meeting on its web site as involving the biggest fund lenders in China .

Fox News and the Post, both of which are owned by Trump ally Rupert Murdoch, also claimed that sources have confirmed Joe Biden was 'the big guy' listed among the six people who would receive the payments.

The payees were only identified with initials and nicknames with a note stating that 'the big guy' would get his payment through 'H'.

'H' is his son Hunter, sources told Fox, who would receive 20 percent.

Titled 'Expectations', it details 'remuneration packages' for six people in a business venture.

Hunter was identified as the 'chair/vice chair depending on agreement with CEFC', an apparent reference to the now bankrupt Shanghai conglomerate China Energy Co.

His pay was '850' and the correspondence also noted how he 'has some office expectations he will elaborate'.

The email also outlines a 'provisional agreement' where 80 per cent of the 'equity' would be shared equally among four people whose initials appear to relate to Hunter and three other recipients.

Kristen Welker: 5 things to know about the moderator of Thursday's presidential debate

  Kristen Welker: 5 things to know about the moderator of Thursday's presidential debate Kristen Welker has been criticized by President Trump as "terrible & unfair." Get to know the White House correspondent ahead of the last debate.The NBC News White House correspondent and "Weekend Today" co-anchor will moderate the debate at Belmont University in Nashville (9 EDT/6 PDT). The second presidential debate was axed after Trump declined to participate virtually, following his COVID-19 diagnosis. Instead, he and Biden held dueling town halls , and the former vice president beat Trump in the Nielsen ratings.

Hunter Biden has acknowledged meeting with Jonathan Li, a Chinese banker and his partner in the fund during the trip, although his spokesman says it was a social visit. The Chinese business license that brought the new fund into existence was issued by Shanghai authorities 10 days after the trip

The sender of the email, Gilliar, said: 'I am happy to raise any detail with Zang if there is shortfalls?'

The email divides the equity into '20 H' - meaning 20 per cent equity to Hunter; 20 per cent to RW, meaning Rob Walker, also of the jc2r consultancy; 20 per cent to another man called Tony Bubulinski.

The remaining 20 per cent was split with 10 per cent going to 'Jim' who is otherwise unnamed, and then '10 held by H for the big guy?'

The big guy was previously unnamed until Fox claimed Friday that it was in reference to Joe Biden.

Zang appears to be a reference to Zang Jian Jun who was the former executive director of CEFC.

According to the alleged emails published by the Post about his Chinese dealings, Hunter also struck a deal for $30 million plus bonuses 'based on introductions alone' over three years after his father left office, then was offered a 'much more lasting and lucrative arrangement.'

The emails were sent when Biden was no longer Vice President and Trump was in office.

The Post's publication of the emails was met with skepticism and prompted Twitter to block users from sharing the link to the original story.

4 winners and 5 losers from the last Biden-Trump debate

  4 winners and 5 losers from the last Biden-Trump debate Joe Biden was a winner — as was moderator Kristen Welker.The first debate was a chaotic disaster thanks to Trump’s constant interruptions; the second one didn’t happen because Trump refused to agree to debate virtually while he had Covid-19 (they had dueling town halls instead). This time around, better moderation and the handy use of a mute button allowed both candidates to express their thoughts — leading to a mix of actual substantive policy exchanges and less-than-coherent mudslinging about families and personal finance.

According to Bobulinski, the joint venture was to include Joe Biden - ‘the Big Guy’ - and his brother, Jim Biden.

‘Hunter Biden called his dad “the Big Guy” or “my Chairman,” and frequently referenced asking him for his sign-off or advice on various potential deals that we were discussing,’ Bobulinski told the Post.

Bobulinski accused the Bidens of going ‘behind my back’ and receiving millions of dollars from the Chinese ‘even though they told me they hadn’t and wouldn’t do that to their partners.’

‘I would ask the Biden family to address the American people and outline the facts so I can go back to being irrelevant - and so I am not put in a position to have to answer those questions for them,’ he said.

‘I don’t have a political ax to grind; I just saw behind the Biden curtain and I grew concerned with what I saw.

‘The Biden family aggressively leveraged the Biden family name to make millions of dollars from foreign entities even though some were from communist controlled China.’

Earlier on Wednesday, Joe Biden ripped Senator Ron Johnson of Wisconsin, a Republican who has used his committee perch to probe Hunter Biden.

Joe Biden also blasted Rudy Giuliani for peddling 'garbage' in his most extensive comments since the release of information said to be from Hunter Biden's laptop.

Biden, doing a local TV interview from his Delaware home, exploded when WISN, a Wisconsin ABC affiliate, brought up the subject of Hunter Biden's laptop.

He called it a 'desperate campaign' to smear him.

Debate transcript: Trump, Biden final presidential debate moderated by Kristen Welker

  Debate transcript: Trump, Biden final presidential debate moderated by Kristen Welker Here is the full transcript of the final presidential debate between President Donald Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden, moderated by Kristen Welker in Nashville on Oct. 22, 2020. Headers have been added for ease of reading. © Mario Tama, Getty Images People are pictured watching the final debate between President Donald Trump and Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden at The Abbey in West Hollywood, California. [0:00] Welker: A very good evening to both of you. This debate will cover six major topics.

The angry pushback came a day before Biden is to face President Donald Trump on a debate stage in Nashville – with Trump gearing up to accuse his rival of 'corruption' on stage just like he did four years ago.

The Milwaukee station's anchor asked Biden about Johnson's efforts as chair of the Senate Homeland Security Committee, which last month issued a lengthy report on Hunter Biden 'corruption.'

'Wisconsin's Republican Senator Ron Johnson put out a statement — on Homeland Security letterhead — saying Hunter Biden, together with other Biden family members, profited off the Biden name,' Adrienne Pedersen said.

She asked Biden if there was any 'legitimacy' to what Johnson was claiming.

'None whatsoever!' Biden fumed.

'This is the same garbage Rudy Giuliani, Trump's henchman, it's a last-ditch effort in this desperate campaign to smear me and my family.'

Then he noted that GOP Sen. Mitt Romney of Utah had criticized the committee's actions to dig into the Bidens.

'Even the man who served with him on that committee, the former nominee for the Republican Party, said there's no basis to this,' Biden said.

'And the vast majority of the intelligence people have come out and said there's no basis at all. Ron should be ashamed of himself!' he said.

Majority of voters say Biden won second debate, poll finds

  Majority of voters say Biden won second debate, poll finds Sixty-five percent of voters said the candidates were mostly respectful of each other's time, as opposed to 10% who said that after the first debate.Fifty-four percent of voters who watched the Thursday debate said Biden performed the best, while 39% said that Trump did. Eight percent of voters who watched weren’t sure or had no opinion on who did best.

Biden did not however offer any denial of their contents being genuine.

The Chinese emails focus on Hunter's dealings with Ye Jianming, the former chairman of CEFC in 2017, after his father had left office and when it was thought he would not run in 2020.

Ye has not been seen since he was taken into custody by Chinese authorities in 2018 amid rumored links to the Chinese military and intelligence services.

It was previously known that he gave Hunter a diamond.

CEFC went bankrupt earlier this year after it was unable to repay its huge debts after warnings over its lack of transparency and dealings with sanctioned Russian firms.

In another 2017 email, Hunted reportedly discussed a deal with Ye. According to the leaked emails, Biden wrote that Ye had been influential in improving a three-year consulting contract with CEFC that would pay him $10million annually just for introductions.

He was given half ownership of a holding company to sweeten the deal, with Ye owning the other half.

According to the leaked emails, Biden wrote: 'Consulting fees is one piece of our income stream but the reason this proposal by the chairman was so much more interesting to me and my family is that we would also be partners inn the equity and profits of the JV's [joint venture's] investments.'

His email was sent to Gongwen Dong who has been linked to the purchase of two luxury Manhattan apartments for a total of $83million, which were bought by companies linked to Ye, according to the Wall Street Journal.

A photo from August 2017 appears to show a flowchart of the ownership of Hudson West which is split equally between Hunter Biden and 'Chairman'.

A report on Biden's business dealings released last month found Hudson West III opened a line of credit in September 2017.

Credit cards issued against the account were used by Hunter, his uncle James and James's wife Sara.

They purchased more than $100,000 worth of items including airline tickets, Apple products, hotel and restaurant bookings, according to the report released by Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) and Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa).

Hudson West has since been dissolved and Hunter's law firm Owaco PC was one of its two owners the report said.

Also seen in the emails was an agreement from one of Ye's associates to pay Biden a retainer of $1million for counsel on US law.

The offer was made by former Hong Kong government official Chi Ping Patrick Ho, who has been convicted in Manhattan for two schemes to pay $3million in bribes to African government officials for oil rights.

He served a prison sentence of three years and was deported to Hong Kong in June.

The new revelations come after emails come from Hunter's laptop appeared to show him making an introduction between his powerful father and a Ukrainian energy firm on Wednesday.

Gas company Burisma' adviser Vadym Pozharskyi thanked Hunter for 'an opportunity to meet your father' in an email sent in 2015, according to the stash of data given to the New York Post by Rudy Giuliani.

Biden dismissed the findings, and his spokesman Andrew Bates said the paper 'never asked the Biden campaign about the critical elements of this story...moreover, we have reviewed Joe Biden’s official schedules from the time and no meeting, as alleged by the New York Post, ever took place.'

The emails are among a trove being referenced by Giuliani and his team after the owner of a computer repair shop in Delaware recovered data from a MacBook pro laptop that was dropped off and never retrieved.

The computer was seized by the FBI and its contents shared with the Post by Giuliani.

Giuliani's lawyer Bob Costello said there are some 40,000 emails on the hard drive including thousands of texts. It also includes images of Hunter 'in very compromising positions,' Costello told Fox News.

There has been no comment on the new emails from Biden's campaign, his lawyer, nor the Chinese businessman.

But Biden's lawyer has previously dismissed the stories, accusing Giuliani of dishonesty.

On Thursday, the Washington Post claimed that the White House was warned last year that Giuliani could be used to spread Russian misinformation.

The former NYC mayor hit back on Friday claiming that he was never warned himself that he could have been used by a Russian intelligence agent to spread false information to the US.
