It only took Joe Biden a week to respond to the bombshell report from the New York Post detailing Hunter Biden and his business dealings overseas and the laptop that he reportedly left at a repair shop in Delaware that had incriminating emails, videos, and photos. The emails show that Hunter Biden used his father and his high ranking government position, vice president, to secure deals with foreign governments and companies.
Joe Biden and his campaign had several opportunities to respond to and answer questions about the allegations and the alarming report, but repeatedly “called a lid” early each day. The only defense against these allegations came from the campaign when they said that the meeting that supposedly happened with Burisma wasn’t on Biden’s official schedule that day.
Adrienne Pedersen is a reporter for WISN and she asked, “Wisconsin’s Republican Senator Ron Johnson, put out a statement on Homeland Security letterhead saying Hunter Biden, together with other Biden family members profited off the Biden name. Is there any legitimacy to Senator Johnson’s claims?”
Joe Biden fired back, “None whatsoever! This is the same garbage Rudy Giuliani, Trump’s henchman. It’s the last ditch effort in this desperate campaign to smear my and my family. Even the man who served with him on that committee, the former nominee for the Republican Party [Senator Mitt Romney], said there’s not basis to this, and you know and all and the vast majority of the intelligence people have come out and said there’s no basis at all. Ron should be ashamed of himself.”
Since the report came out, Democrats, like Adam Schiff, have been trying to label it as a “Russian disinformation campaign”, but Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe affirmed that it is not Russian disinformation. He said, “Let me be clear, the intelligence community doesn’t believe that, because there’s no intelligence that supports that, and we have shared no intelligence with Chairman [Adam] Schiff or any other member of Congress that Hunter Biden’s laptop is part of some Russian disinformation campaign – it’s simply not true.”
The FBI and DOJ have since supported Ratcliffe in that statement. Sean Langille, a producer for Fox News, said that the “FBI & DOJ concur with Ratcliffe that Hunter Biden’s laptop & the emails in question weren’t part of a Russian disinformation campaign.” A senior intelligence official told the Examiner that there is zero evidence or intelligence that the laptop and the information on it are of Russian source.
Joe Biden, any Biden family members, or campaign staff have made any remarks specifically denying or proving that the information is false. This is leading Americans to believe the story is true.
