With less than two weeks until the November elections, former Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter Biden are yet again making headlines after screenshots of text messages exchanged between Hunter and Tony Bobulinski, who claims to be their former business partners with the Bidens, have been leaked. 

Fox News obtained the alleged messages from Bobulinski, a retired lieutenant in the US Navy and the former CEO of SinoHawk Holding, which shows Hunter Biden discussing an alleged meeting in 2017 involving his father and uncle James Biden. 

The images show pictures taken of a Blackberry with a cracked screen. One of the alleged messages by Bobulinski to Hunter from 2017 read, “Mrng plse let me knw if we will do early dinner w your Uncle & dad and where also for document translation do you want it simple Chinese or traditional?” The contact has been saved under the name of Hunter Biden-DC. 

The following message which Bidens’ former business associate claims was from Hunter states, “Not sure on dinner yet and whatever is the most common for a Chinese legal DOC”, to which Bobulinski has responded, “Chinese legal docs can be both, i’ll make it traditional.”

The screenshots also reveal an alleged text message sent to Joe’s bother James Biden saying, “Great to meet u and spend some time together, please thank Joe for his time, was great to talk thx Tony b.”

Meanwhile, on October 22, Fox News' chief congressional correspondent Mike Emanuel released another set of photos consisting of alleged text messages exchanged between Bobulinski and another business partner of Hunter Biden’s James Gilliar. 

The pictures of the text messages from the same Blackberry shows a message sent by Gilliar to Bobulinski saying, “Don't mention Joe being involved, it's only when u are face to face, I know u know that but they are paranoid.” Emmanuel reportedly clarified that by “they” he was referring to Joe and Hunter.

The string of screenshots has stirred a conversation among Internet users despite Joe Biden having denied any involvement in his son’s business affair. Meanwhile, a significant number of them are questioning the authenticity of the messages given they were exchanged on a Blackberry in 2017 via MTS cell network which reportedly only operates in Russia. 

One tweeted, "Soooo we're supposed to believe that in 2017, Hunter Biden (who is not running for president BTW) was texting someone from a Blackberry device on whatsapp, although Whatsapp was discontinued in December 2016 on Blackberry devices? Seems fishy."

Another added, "Ngl the most amusing thing about the bogus Hunter Biden text messages is not the fact that they’re screenshots from from an iPhone on a Russian cell network showed on a cracked blackberry, but the fact that Hunter Biden (JD, Yale) misspelled “cite” in a context about contracts."

One added, "Here is the blackberry apparently owned by hunter biden that implicates him.. Just one problem. If you look at the top left, you’ll see it’s on a Russian Network “MTS RUS” Another @RudyGiuliani failure"

Another tweeted, "Sooooo..Hunter has a blackberry in modern times that is connected to a Russian network showing texts that look like they were written by someone who took a few years of English in High School. Brilliant. Anyone who falls for this shouldn't be allowed to breed. What a joke."
