Aformer Hunter Biden business partner involved in early contacts with a Chinese energy conglomerate that paid the first son millions is set to appear in a closed-door deposition before the House Oversight Committee on Tuesday.

Tony Bobulinski, who worked with the younger Biden to form an investment company with CEFC China Energy, is a key witness in the House Republicans’ impeachment inquiry because he had a front row seat to the Biden family’s plans for its partnership with the Chinese company.

Though Hunter Biden would ultimately cut Bobulinski out of the deal and make a much more lucrative arrangement with CEFC—the Biden family received more than $5 million—his early involvement in forming an investment company with Hunter Biden and other partners sheds light on how the Bidens expected to benefit the family patriarch, Joe Biden.
