WASHINGTON – A prominent Democratic congressman on Friday sent a support email to former Hunter Biden business partner Tony Bobulinski, telling him that he will defend him from slander in the media.
Email of California Representative Ro Khanna, former Obama administration official and co-chair of Bernie Sander’s presidential campaign, follows Bobulinski bomb claims that he met Joe Biden and that the old veep was involved in his son’s shady overseas treatment, first revealed by The Post.
“Tony, I hope you’re doing well,” Khanna wrote in a Friday morning email obtained from Fox News.
“I gave a record statement to the NY Times that I know you, you have always acted with honor with me, and you and other family members have supported me,” he continued.
Records show that Bobulinski, a U.S. Navy veteran, has donated $ 21,400 to Khanna since 2013.
Khanna told the businessman that she “refused to comment on the details of your allegations because I have no personal knowledge about it, but I said that I respect your service to our country and that you will never been a “partisan pirate” interaction and talked about putting country in celebration. “
“I have also made it clear that I do not think you are a Russian agent. I will continue to make this statement to any media that requests it.”
Prominent Democrats in Congress, including House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D. Calif.), Said reports on e-mails from Hunter Biden’s hard drive were “Russian disinformation” and a stain that came “from the Kremlin”.
Khanna signed her email to Bobulinski with her phone and an offer to chat.
“After the heat of the election, if you want, I’m happy to talk,” he wrote. “On a personal level, I wish you and your family the best.”
Democratic candidate Joe Biden has in the past vehemently denied having any knowledge of his son’s business dealings. Ukraine and China.
But in a bombshell statement to The Post, Bobulinski accused Biden of lying and said they discussed the family business during a meeting at a Los Angeles hotel on May 2, 2017.
A new report Thursday said Bobulinski had been meeting since the FBI as part of an earlier investigation money laundering charges by Hunter Biden and his associates.
