A former business associate of Hunter Biden, Tony Bobulinski, in an interview with Fox News’ “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” claimed that the Biden family shrugged off concerns that Joe Biden’s alleged ties to his son’s business deals could put a future presidential campaign at risk.

Bobulinski said that he had raised concerns to Joe Biden’s brother about his ties to a possible joint business venture with a Chinese energy firm.

Bobulinski was the former CEO of SinoHawk Holdings, which he said was the partnership between the CEFC Chairman Ye Jianming and the two Biden family members. Fox News Reported.

“I remember saying, ‘How are you guys getting away with this?’ ‘Aren’t you concerned?’” he told Carlson.

He claims that Jim Biden chuckled.

“‘Plausible Deniability,’ he said it directly to me in a cabana at the Peninsula Hotel,” he said.

During the Fox News interview, Bobulinski explained how the meeting with Joe Biden took place in May 2017. Fox news had posted text messages that mentioned the meeting, he indicated that it was the Bidens who initiated the meeting, not him.

“They were sort of wining and dining me and presenting the strength of the Biden family to get me engaged and to take on the CEO role to develop SinoHawk in the U.S. and around the world in partnership with CEFC,” he said.

He explained how he was introduced to Joe Biden at a conference at the Beverly Hilton Hotel:

“I didn’t request to meet with Joe” Biden, he said. “They requested that I meet with Joe [Biden]. They were putting their entire family legacy on the line. They knew exactly what they were doing.”

He asked why the former vice president would want to meet him.

“Why on 10:38 on the night of May 2 would Joe Biden take time out of his schedule to take time with me, behind a column so people could not see us, to have a discussion with his family and my family and business at a very high level?” he said.

Biden has repeatedly denied being involved with his son’s business dealings. Fox News Reported.

“Bobulinski said he was told by CEFC that it was a $10 million deal that would see a $5 million loan to the Biden family and $5 million was their contribution to capitalize SinoHawk Holdings.”

The Biden Campaign denied all the claims.

“I have not taken a penny from any foreign source ever in my life,” Joe Biden said at a presidential debate last week. “We learned this president … has a secret bank account with China, does business in China, and in fact is talking about me taking money? I have not taken a single penny from any country whatsoever, ever, ever.”

“Joe Biden has never even considered being involved in business with his family, nor in any overseas business whatsoever,” Biden campaign spokesman Andrew Bates told Fox News. “He has never held stock in any such business arrangements nor has any family member or any other person ever held stock for him.”
