Hunter Biden defrauded me, Jim Biden called me during FBI interview: ex-biz partner

Tony Bobulinski was interrupted while he was being interviewed by the FBI, 11 days before the 2020 presidential election, by a mysterious phone call from the president’s brother, Jim Biden, who may have suspected that his business partner was threatening Joe Biden’s candidacy by dishing the dirt on his family’s China deals.

The missed phone call at 1:37 p.m. October 23, 2020, came as Bobulinski was telling two FBI agents that Joe Biden stood to earn a 10% cut of his son Hunter and brother Jim’s lucrative joint venture with Chinese energy firm CEFC.

Bobulinski disclosed the call in an interview with Tucker Carlson to be aired on Fox News Tuesday night.

Among other bombshells, the Biden family’s business partner alleges that Hunter and Jim Biden “defrauded” him and two other partners, Rob Walker and James Gilliar, of at least $5 million from CEFC and “took the money for themselves.”

In his first television appearance in two years, Bobulinski recalls his surprise when he saw that Jim Biden was calling him, and says he showed his ringing phone to the FBI field agents interviewing him at the FBI Washington Field Office.

“On my BlackBerry, Jim Biden called me via WhatsApp, and … my phone starts ringing in the middle of this interview. So, I looked down and I’m like, ‘Is he really calling me right now?’

“So, I show the phone to my lawyer and … then I showed it to the agent. The agents got up out of the chair and left the room. They were like, ‘You can take that call if you want.’ And so, I answered it and there was nobody on the other side. So, I don’t know if it was a mistake or that he tried to send me a message, or what it was. But that’s the last interaction or communication I’ve had with the Biden family.”

Bobulinski gave the FBI a five-hour interview that day, Oct. 23, 2020, as well as the contents of his three cellphones containing encrypted messages between Hunter and Jim Biden and their business partners, emails, and financial documents detailing the Biden family’s influence-peddling operation in foreign countries during Joe’s vice presidency.

Now he says he realizes, through whistleblowers who have come forward to Republican members of Congress, that the FBI buried his damning disclosures about the Biden family, and feels that the four-year investigation into Hunter Biden by the US attorney in Delaware, David Weiss, is dragging out indefinitely.

“The reason why I’m sitting here is I’ve been sitting on my hands for two years, great legal counsel, and they’ve been advising me to let the process work, you know, let the DOJ, let US Attorney Weiss in Delaware and the FBI in Baltimore and, apparently, Delaware work through it.

“And you know, almost on a monthly basis I’d have that debate and argument with my lawyers [asking] when are the facts coming out? The American people deserve the facts.”

As The Post reported last month, Timothy Thibault, the FBI agent alleged by whistleblowers to have interfered with an investigation into Hunter Biden, was assigned by the Washington Field Office as “point man” to manage Bobulinski — but after initially promising him a follow-up interview, Thibault never contacted him again. In August, Thibault abruptly retired from the FBI.

“When I … found out that Tim Thibault, the FBI agent that was assigned to run point on all the information I and my lawyers provided the FBI, had walked out of the building, I was sort of flabbergasted,” says Bobulinski, a decorated former US Navy officer with top-secret security clearances from the National Security Agency and the Department of Energy. “You know, like what? This is crazy. Like when are the American people going to get the facts on all this? …

Bobulinski’s allegations of fraud revolve around a contract between a Delaware firm he set up in May 2017, Oneida, owned by him, Jim and Hunter Biden, Rob Walker and James Gilliar.

“The fact pattern is the FBI alone altered history in that election.”

Bobulinski’s allegations of fraud revolve around a contract between a Delaware firm he set up in May 2017, Oneida, owned by him, Jim and Hunter Biden, Walker and Gilliar, to form a joint venture with CEFC, the Chinese firm that was supposed to give them $10 million of working capital.

He alleges that Hunter Biden copied the contract and diverted more than $5 million of the Chinese money into his own pocket.

“It appears that Hunter Biden, Jim Biden, and the Biden family really copied the same document down to typos [and] the serial number and they removed [the name] Oneida Holdings [and] replaced it with Owasco, which was [the name of] Hunter Biden’s law firm or business that he operated,” Bobulinski tells Carlson.

“So, he effectively swapped out an entity that he owned 20% of to a business that he owned 100% of, which is fraud …

“Hunter Biden and Jim Biden defrauded [us] and took the money for themselves … stole it from me and my other partners, Rob Walker and James Gilliar.”
