The Senate Homeland Security Committee said Friday that the FBI has scheduled an interview with former Hunter Biden associate Tony Bobulinski.
Bobulinski said in a Thursday press briefing that both Hunter Biden and former Vice President Joe Biden had been involved in criminal business deals with foreign entities while the elder Biden was in office. Earlier in the day, he also confirmed the accuracy of an email implying Joe Biden would get a 10% stake in one of these deals.
"I've seen Vice President Biden saying he never talked to Hunter about his business," Bobulinski said. "I've seen firsthand that that's not true, because it wasn't just Hunter's business, they said they were putting the Biden family name and its legacy on the line."
The Senate committee – which has been investigating Hunter Biden – reported that they were scheduled to meet with Bobulinski on Friday but had postponed due to the FBI's request for an immediate interview. At his briefing, Bobulinski had previously indicated he had three phones with evidence that he wished to give to the FBI.
"I appreciate that the FBI has a job to do, and I am glad they are finally taking an interest in these concerning financial matters that our committees have been investigating for months," said Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI), chairman of the Senate committee.
The FBI declined to comment on the news. The agency has reportedly had a copy of the data involved in recent bombshell stories about Hunter Biden for nearly a year.
According to Johnson, Bobulinski will still be interviewed by the Senate committee "in the near future."
