New York Post columnist Miranda Devine is getting ready to release a new book that takes readers through the story of the infamous laptop abandoned by President Joe Biden’s son Hunter at a Delaware computer repair shop.
Among other things, the book, entitled Laptop From Hell, details at least one incident in which Hunter Biden appeared to use his father’s political clout to aid in his business ventures.
Meeting at the Beverly Hilton
In an excerpt published by the Post, Devine explains that Hunter Biden and his uncle, Jim Biden — Joe Biden’s brother — entered into a deal with an energy conglomerate called CEFC, linked to the Chinese government.
The Bidens reportedly chose Tony Bobulinski to head the enterprise, and the excerpt begins by describing how Hunter and Jim first introduced Bobulinski to Joe.
“Dad not in now until 11,” Hunter Biden was said to have written in a message to Bobulinski from a Los Angeles hotel, according to Devine. “Let’s me [you] and Jim meet at 10 at Beverly Hilton where he’s staying.”
Hunter also reportedly warned the businessman “not go into any detail about the business” during his initial meeting with the now-president. “I just want my dad to be comfortable with you,” Hunter Biden reportedly told Bobulinski.
After Joe Biden arrived at the hotel, Hunter was said to have introduced the pair. “This is Tony, Dad,” he said, according to Devine, “the individual I told you about that’s helping us with the business that we’re working on with the Chinese.”
We need answers
After a brief and apparently casual chat, it became clear Bobulinski had earned Joe Biden’s approval. “Thank you for your service,” Joe said at the time, according to Devine’s book. “Thank you for helping my son.”
It was significant, Devine said, in that “Bobulinski had passed the test.” She goes on to report:
It was a crucial meeting, because for the first time an outsider would see the extent to which Joe was involved in Hunter and Jim’s international business. Joe was the final decision-maker. Nothing important was done without his agreement.
Notably, the Bidens are said to have gone to great lengths to keep Joe out of the loop with regard to the details of these business ventures. But Bobulinski has since made the media rounds to spill the beans, Devine writes.
Perhaps most troubling of all is the lack of accountability surrounding the issue. There hasn’t even been an investigation, as Judicial Watch’s Tom Fitton complained in a recent video.
“The FBI knows all of this…and under the rules of the Justice Department there should be a special counsel,” Fitton said, “and the fact there isn’t one shows how decrepit this city is in terms of fairly enforcing the rule of law.”
