The Democrats and media have been about trying to vilify or invalidate the allegations from Hunter Biden’t former business associate Tony Bobulinski, with some even suggesting that he’s some kind of a partisan against Biden.
But what they didn’t expect was a Democrat to come to his defense.
Progressive Democratic Rep. Ro Khanna (D-CA) sent Bobulinski an email on October 30, which was obtained by Fox. Khanna’s spokesperson confirmed it was real. That email offering Bobulinski support that he, Bobulinski wasn’t a “partisan hack” against Biden, while not commenting on the specific nature of the allegations.

Indeed the records show that Bobulinski has contributed for years to Democrats, including multiple contributions to Khanna, since 2013.
The email said in pertinent part:
“Tony, hope you are doing okay. I did give an on the record statement to The NY Times that I know you, you have always acted honorably with me, and you and other family members supported me,” Khanna wrote. “I have told any media outlets that have asked the same thing.”
Khanna wrote that he has “refused to comment on the details of your allegations because I don’t have personal knowledge about that, but have said I respect your service to our country and that you have never been a ‘partisan hack’ in our interactions and have talked about putting country over party.”
“I also have made it clear that I do not think you are a Russian agent,” Khanna wrote. “I will continue to make that statement to any media that asks.”
Likely not what the Democrats were hoping for.
It was another Democrat’s accusations that prompted Bobulinski to come forward in person, when House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA), falsely accused him of being part of a “Russian disinformation” campaign.
It was that that prompted him to talk to the media as well as the Senate and the FBI.
Khanna, in the email, added that he is “grateful” for Bobulinski’s past support. [….]
“I remain appreciative for your past support and your requesting your family members to support,” Khanna wrote. “After the heat of the election, if you want to, I am happy to chat.”
He added: “On a personal level, I wish you and your family the best.”
The email was signed: “Best, Ro.”
So why isn’t this featured more on the news? Seems like this would be an important thing to report in the context of the whole matter for the media? But of course they’re not really doing it, apart from Fox, because they don’t want to report on anything that might provide support for Bobulinski or his allegations against Biden, especially when they are working so hard to try to suppress them or knock them down.
