The NY Times has a piece talking about how Bobulinski was involved with an effort to pitch the story to the Wall Street Journal before the NY Post story came out, or Schiff's comments about Russian disinformation.

Bobulinski approached the WSJ not over Adam Schiff's comments, but his findings that the methods being used by H. Biden were suspicious and worthy of investigation a true journalist should do. On Oct 16, Schiff made his comments about the e-mails and any attempt to provide information on the J. Biden involvement as a Russian Disinformation campaign, basically incriminating anyone who was proffering information on it, as Bobulinski had to the WSJ. Hence, Bobulinski saw himself incriminated and so told Walker on 20 Oct to get Schiff to retract it or he'd do his own press release to make available all information available to him (including his phones) to clear his name. Schiff didn't so Bobulinski did.

The NYT piece is cleverly worded but misleading. Their main point is the e-mails could not PROVE J. Biden set up the deal between H. Biden and team and CETA or any other Chinese organization. But nobody is saying the e-mails PROVE anything....its just a NYT strawman. The WSJ's position of 'no role for J. Biden' says that couldn't find a smoking gun...which I think Trump was hoping for just prior to the Oct 22 debate. But this doesn't mean J. Biden was not involved with his sons or others relationship with foreign business relations.

Personally, I doubt seriously J. Biden had a direct hand in setting up anything for his sons while VP. He's been around too long and knows as well as anyone the consequences of doing that, particularly if he did it while VP. But he clearly did talk with Hunter about his business dealings on more than a couple of occasions and he may well have taken remuneration as the one text message suggests in 2017. As long as these happened in 2017 or later, I don't see any laws violated. But to the voter, this could be a major event, legal or not.
