A former Hunter Biden business partner said Tuesday he was warned against going public with information about their business dealings when another ex-partner told him: “You’re just going to bury all of us.”
During an appearance on Fox News, Tony Bobulinski said he spoke with former partner Rob Walker to demand that Walker get US Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) to retract his claim that The Post’s recent reporting on Hunter Biden’s emails was part of a Russian-orchestrated “smear on Joe Biden.”
Host Tucker Carlson then played a snippet of an audio recording that Bobulinski said was part of the phone conversation.
“If he doesn’t come out, on record, I am providing the facts,” Bobulinski said.
“Ah, Tony, you’re just going to bury all of us, man,” Walker responded.
Bobulinski, a former US Navy lieutenant, said he was outraged by Schiff’s Oct. 16 comments on CNN, where Schiff attacked a series of reports by The Post about Hunter Biden’s emails.
“We know that this whole smear on Joe Biden comes from the Kremlin,” Schiff claimed.
Bobulinski said he knew the emails were authentic because he’d received one, dated May 13, 2017, that outlined a plan to have 10 percent in their company, Oneida Holdings, “held by H for the big guy?”
“To have a congressman out there, speaking about Russian disinformation … to say that and associate that with my name, is absolutely disgusting to me,” Bobulinksi said.
Bobulinski has previously confirmed that the “H” in the email — which involved a pending deal with China’s largest private energy company — stood for Hunter Biden and that his dad was “the big guy.”
Bobulinski said Tuesday that “a single phone call from Joe Biden” could have gotten Schiff to retract his remark and that he’d hoped that “the Bidens would do the right thing.”
But while Walker, a former official in the Bill Clinton and George W. Bush administrations, promised to “make some calls,” he “sort of presented it as if that’s going to be impossible,” Bobulinski said.
Bobulinski also said that Joe Biden’s brother, Jim Biden, ultimately wound up with a 20 percent stake in Oneida Holdings after the 2017 email said he’d only get 10.
“What I’d ask the American people to read and look at is how … did Jim Biden go from a 10 percent owner to a 20 percent owner?” he said.
“I’ll leave that to the American people to answer that.”
Neither Walker, the Biden campaign, Hunter Biden’s lawyer nor Jim Biden returned emails seeking comment.
