Delivery giant UPS confirmed that it has found a lost packet of documents that Fox News’ Tucker Carlson said would provide evidence in the ever-growing scandal involving Joe Biden’s son Hunter and his overseas business dealings.
“After an extensive search, we have found the contents of the package and are arranging for its return” to Carlson, UPS senior public relations manager Matthew O’Connor said in a statement to Business Insider. “UPS will always focus first on our customers, and will never stop working to solve issues and make things right. We work hard to ensure every package is delivered, including essential goods, precious family belongings, and critical health care.”
The announcement of the recovery came after Glenn Zaccara, UPS’s corporate media relations director, confirmed that Carlson had used the company to ship the materials before they were lost.
“The package was reported with missing contents as it moved within our network,” Zaccara said before they were located. “UPS is conducting an urgent investigation.”
During his Oct. 28 broadcast, Carlson said that a UPS employee notified them that the package “was open and empty … apparently, it had been opened.
“The Biden documents never arrived in Los Angeles. Tuesday morning, we received word from our shipping company that our package had been opened and the contents were missing,” Carlson said.
“The documents had disappeared.”
On Oct. 27, Carlson broadcast an interview of former Hunter Biden associate Tony Bobulinski, who claimed that the former Democratic vice president could be compromised by the Chinese Communist Party due to Hunter and brother James Biden’s business dealings in the country.
Joe Biden hasn’t responded to Bobulinski’s allegations. Last week, during his debate with President Donald Trump, he said he had “not taken a penny from any foreign source ever in my life.”
Biden’s campaign earlier this month said he never had a meeting with an executive at a Ukrainian gas company, Burisma Holdings, while he was the vice president and his son sat on the firm’s board of directors. A report from the New York Post, which cited alleged Hunter Biden emails, suggested Hunter Biden had arranged a meeting between him, the executive, and Joe Biden.
Republican lawmakers have been urging Attorney General William Barr to appoint a special counsel to investigate Hunter Biden’s business dealings and any possible involvement of the former vice president.
“You know, I am not a big fan of special counsels, but if Joe Biden wins the presidency, I don’t see how you avoid one,” Senate Homeland Security Chairman Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) said. “Otherwise, this is going to be, you know, tucked away, and we will never know what happened. All this evidence is going to be buried.”
UPS didn’t provide further details about the apparent mishap.
