Key Biden Witness Files Lawsuit Against Fox News

Fox News is again facing a defamation lawsuit. Tony Bobulinski, a key witness who linked the president to Hunter Biden’s business ventures, has filed a lawsuit against host Jessica Tarlov over her claim that Trump supporters are paying his legal fees.

The news channel previously paid tens of millions of dollars to Dominion Voting Machines after the channel floated conspiracy theories that the company was involved in rigging the 2020 elections.

The suit, filed Thursday in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York, alleged Tarlov “lied” last week when she initially claimed Bobulinski’s legal fees were paid by a Trump super PAC. Her comments were made during a discussion on Fox News’s “The Five” after Bobulinski testified before the House Oversight Committee for its impeachment inquiry into President Biden. 

 A day later, Tarlov clarified her previous remarks on air, stating, “What was actually said during the hearing was that the law firm representing Mr. Bobulinski was paid by a Trump PAC. I have seen no indication those payments were made in connection with Mr. Bobulinski’s legal fees, and he denies that they were.” 

A spokesperson for Fox News on Thursday maintained Tarlov’s clarification was accurate and made known the host was not aware of anything linking payments from a Trump PAC to Bobulinski’s legal fees. 

“Jessica Tarlov’s March 21st statements were accurate and made clear that she was not aware of anything to indicate that payments from a Trump PAC to Elections, LLC were made in connection with Tony Bobulinski’s legal fees,” a Fox News spokesperson said in a statement to The Hill. “We stand by our decision to not issue any further corrections and will vigorously defend against these inaccurate claims.”

Bobulinski worked with Hunter Biden before his father became president. Over the past year, he has emerged as a pivotal witness for the House Oversight Committee and has testified that the president had connections to son’s businesses.

He first came to prominence by noting that Joe Biden was “the Big Guy” who would receive ten percent of all of Hunter’s earnings. 

Earlier in the month, Bobulinski offered testimony that will likely lead to impeachment hearings, telling Congress, “I want to be crystal clear: from my direct personal experience and what I have subsequently come to learn, it is clear to me that Joe Biden was ‘the Brand’ being sold by the Biden family. His family’s foreign influence peddling operation — from China to Ukraine and elsewhere — sold out to foreign actors who were seeking to gain influence and access to Joe Biden and the United States government.”.

  1. Tarlov is a flaming liberal socialist demorat. I won’t watch the five or anything on fox if she is on. Harold Ford is a demorat but at least he isn’t abrasive.
