Former Vice President Joe Biden has claimed that he has "never spoken to my son about his overseas business dealings."
The Post claims that the laptop contains emails indicating otherwise, and that its hard drive also contained photos, including a picture of Hunter purportedly smoking crack. He has a well-known drug addiction.
The NY Post article was headlined, "Smoking-gun email reveals how Hunter Biden introduced Ukrainian businessman to VP dad."
The alleged smoking-gun email The Post claims was on the computer in question shows Hunter Biden setting up a meeting between his father and a Ukrainian energy firm executive. Hunter Biden was paid by the firm.
The Hill reported that Bobulinski's "emails were a key part of a story published recently by the New York Post, alleging that Hunter Biden used his influence to connect a Ukrainian businessman and fellow board member at the gas company Burisma with his father when he was vice president."
That email alleged "a business arrangement involving a Chinese company and members of the Biden family," including a note reading "Hunter has some office expectations he will elaborate," Fox News reported, adding that there was a "proposed equity split" referencing "20" for "H" and "10 held by H for the big guy?"
"The reference to ‘the Big Guy' in the much publicized May 13, 2017 email is in fact a reference to Joe Biden," Bobulinski said in a statement to Fox News.
Bobulinski told Fox News that "he does not believe Joe Biden's past claim that he did not discuss his son Hunter's business affairs with him," alleging that Hunter "frequently referenced asking him for his sign-off or advice on various potential deals."
"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," he told Fox News, adding, "Hunter wanted to use the company as his personal piggy bank by just taking money out of it as soon as it came from the Chinese."
The Hill also published this purported texting exchange between Bobulinski and Hunter Biden on May 2, 2017:
Obviously the laptop is and always was the "smoking gun" about illegal kicksbacks from the Ukraine and China, for quid pro quo done by Joe Biden.
Fox News has examined the claim and found no evidence to support the claim.
