The criminal case involving President Joe Biden’s son Hunter Biden is now closing in on the White House after a witness revealed they were asked about “The Big Guy” before the grand jury.
The witness reportedly told The New York Post that they were grilled about the identity of “The Big Guy,” which has previously been confirmed by Hunter’s business associates as a nickname for Joe Biden.
According to the Post, a witness who testified before the grand jury was asked to identify “The Big Buy” in Hunter and his business associates’ planned deal with a Chinese energy company.
The Post thinks this is about an email they reported on in October 2020 that showed how when one of Hunter Biden’s business partners, James Gilliar, outlined the proposed payout for those involved in the deal with CEFC China Energy Company he listed: “10 held by H for the big guy?”
Former Utah US attorney Brett Tolman said:
“I get that there’s spin, but this is not a complex one.
“Conspiracy is a standalone crime in our country, and you’ve certainly got enough to present to the grand jury that there’s a conspiracy among Joe, brother James and Hunter to bring in money, to not declare that money, to not pay taxes on that money.
“And to do so from a country like China, it’s not just red flags — there are potential crimes being committed.”
Washington, DC, lawyer Jim Trusty, said:
“The question is whether Joe Biden’s vice presidency was for sale and whether Joe was complicit in that sort of scheme.”
From The New York Post:
Another former Hunter Biden partner, US Navy veteran Tony Bobulinski, later revealed that “the big guy” was Hunter’s dad, then the Democratic candidate for president, saying, “I have heard Joe Biden say he has never discussed his dealings with Hunter. That is false.”
Hunter Biden disclosed he was under investigation for his “tax affairs” shortly after his dad was elected over former President Donald Trump in the 2020 election, but the probe broadened to include potential money laundering and the violation of lobbying laws, according to recent reports.
In the wake of last week’s report by the Washington Post — which confirmed $4.8 million in payments from CEFC to entities controlled by Hunter Biden and first brother James Biden during 2017 and 2018 — the White House on Sunday attempted to distance the president from his under-scrutiny kin.
From The Daily Mail:
From May 2014, a Ukrainian gas company, Burisma Holdings Ltd. was paying Hunter $83,333 a month to sit on its board, invoices on his abandoned laptop show.
Hunter, now 52, was paid by the Ukrainian company until April 2019.
He stepped down from the company’s board that year as his father’s presidential candidacy gained steam.
He has admitted that, in hindsight, his international dealings were an error, and he ‘missed… the perception that I would create’.
Much speculation has swirled about ‘the big guy’, and whether it indicated Joe Biden himself was involved in Hunter’s dealings.
Biden stepped down as vice president in January 2017, and was a private citizen at the time of Gilliar’s email.
A former business associate of Hunter Biden, Tony Bobulinski, came forward shortly before the 2020 election to say that Joe Biden was indeed ‘the big guy’
