“Timothy Thibault, a former top FBI official who has been accused of stifling aspects of the inquiry into Hunter Biden, was reportedly “running point” on the bureau’s handling of Tony Bobulinski, a key witness in the laptop saga.
Bobulinski is raising concerns that Thibault played a key role in suppressing the evidence he gave the FBI about the Biden family, sources told the Washington Free Beacon. Thibault recently stepped down from his post as assistant special agent in charge of the Washington field office amid a firestorm over his handling of the inquiry and allegations of political bias.
“What Mr. Thibault knows about the FBI’s significant misconduct and running of interference for the Biden family won’t stay hidden just because he’s no longer with the bureau,” Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA) told the news outlet.
In October 2020, Bobulinski said he was interviewed by the FBI for five hours and discussed the “Biden family business dealings with the Chinese.” He said President Joe Biden was the “big guy” described in the New York Post’s story about messages on Hunter Biden’s laptop. During that time, Tucker Carlson interviewed Bobulinski to discuss his allegations.
Bobulinski alleged that he met with Hunter Biden and his father to talk through a deal with a Chinese firm, CEFC China Energy, that reportedly has connections to Chinese military intelligence. Representatives for Bobulinski reached out to the FBI after he sat for an interview with agents, but the bureau has not reached out to Bobulinski in the time since, according to the Washington Free Beacon.
Reports that Thibault was “running point” on the FBI’s dealings with Bobulinski raise questions about whether the FBI adequately assessed Bobulinski’s allegations against the Biden family. (Washington Examiner, 9/02/2022) (Archive)
