A FORMER business associate of Hunter Biden has claimed Joe Biden's denials of, and involvement in, his son's foreign business dealings are a "blatant lie."

Bobulinski is a Navy veteran and the former head of SinoHawk Holdings, which, he said, is a partnership between two Biden family members and a Chinese energy firm, CEFC China Energy.
The veteran added that Biden's responses to questions about his foreign dealings during the second presidential debate almost caused him to leave the room.
Bobulinski, who was a guest of President Trump, said: "In that debate, he made a specific statement around questions around this from the president.
"And I'll be honest with you, I almost stood up and screamed 'liar' and walked out because I was shocked that after four days or five days that they prep for this, that the Biden family is taking that position to the world."
The former vice president's knowledge of his son's foreign affairs has become a heated topic of the campaign season.
A few weeks back, a report from the New York Post claimed that a laptop belonging to Hunter Biden had revealed emails outlining his dealings overseas.
One email, the report claimed, showed that Hunter allegedly introduced his father, then the vice president, to a top executive at Ukrainian natural gas firm Burisma Holdings, which Hunter had ties to.
The Post report claimed Biden met with the executive, Vadym Pozharskyi, in April 2015 in Washington, D.C.Bobulinski, a Navy veteran, said he first met Joe Biden in May 2017 Recently, the New York Post released images from a laptop said to have belonged to Hunter Biden One email on the laptop, the Post report claimed, showed Biden had met with a Ukrainian associate of Hunter's
The email read: "Dear Hunter, thank you for inviting me to DC and giving an opportunity to meet your father and spent [sic] some time together. It’s realty [sic] an honor and pleasure."
Biden's campaign has denied any meeting took place with Pozharskyi, while Democrats have dubbed such reports as a "smear campaign."
In an interview with The Post that ran on Tuesday, Bobulinski explained how he had first met Biden at an event in May 2017.
He claimed he was attending the Milken Conference at the Beverly Hilton Hotel, where Biden was set to speak about the "moonshot project," which was targeted at finding a cure for cancer.
Bobulinski said that Hunter introduced him to his father, adding, "He then brings Joe over and introduces me, saying he’s the one who’s helping us with the business we’re doing with the Chinese.”
Biden did not deny any knowledge of these dealings on the spot, Bobulinski claims.
