The Story that just won't go away

We the People


Last night it finally happened - a reporter asked Joe Biden about reported emails indicating his son Hunter cashed in overseas on the former vice president's name and that Joe Biden had lied about knowledge of it. 

"Mr. Biden, what is your response to the New York Post story about your son, sir?"

Biden snapped back - "I know you’d ask it". "I have no response, it’s another smear campaign, right up your alley, those are the questions you always ask."

The reporters name was Bo Erickson and he works for CBS.

Social media has tried to kill the story by simply censoring it. ABC host George Stephanopoulos refused to ask about it Thursday night during a town hall with Biden. The Washington Post, which has been preening its feathers over Watergate for decades, as America’s supposedly premier investigative newspaper, have shown zero interest in Joe Biden’s alleged corruption involving payoffs from China and the Ukraine. Aside from the New York Post which broke the story, only Fox News has shown an interest in covering it. Yet that may be just enough to make it a campaign issue with only a few weeks left to what is clearly not only the most important election in our lifetime, but to the lives of our children & grand children.

It is odd that the same msm which went all in on publishing insane claims made in the fake Steele dossier are the same people who dismiss the Hunter Biden photos & emails which appear to be real and in one case has been corroborated as true.  It'll be easy to verify they are real. Yet the press aims to convince us they aren't real. Can we really go on with a media that is so blatantly bias that it violates every principle of journalism and openly lies and distorts the truth?  Did we ever think we would see such a day?

As for the story itself, the question is how much will it influence the vote?  According to the Rasmussen Poll (the one that had it close to being right last time) Biden leads Trump by 5 points. That would mean that these final weeks are crucial and one candidate could pull away from the other.

If we find a direct link of corruption to Joe Biden it could give the President some serious momentum.

It is being investigated:




If Joe Biden should win, despite all of this, we can be assured of two things: Biden is not going to face any watchdogs in the mainstream media. He will be surrounded by lapdogs. Beyond that, we can say good by to traditional America once and for all.

"One person on an email thread allegedly involving Hunter Biden corroborates the veracity of the messages, which appear to outline a deal involving Joe Biden and a Chinese energy firm."

Who? Oh, that's right, an anonymous source. Nice example of pure hypocrisy.

on an email thread allegedly involving Hunter Biden corroborates the veracity of the messages

So an anonymous source claims to have "corroborated the veracity" of an email "allegedly involving Hunter Biden". If that doesn't smack of desperation I don't know what would. The fact that some brain dead conservatives are hanging their hats on this Russian created conspiracy theory isn't surprising so much as it is just sad.

If you think that Trump could "pull away" from Biden due to this story you are on another planet. 

I'd like to see the Democrats do more to emphasize Trump's lifelong corruption in the last two and a half weeks of this campaign.  Vic, did Joe Biden make a 25 million dollar reparation to average Americans for trying to swindle them out of their life savings?  Or wasn't that Donald Trump ?  Trump University.

My claim has not been proven yet, but the e-mails suggest it. The sad part is that you can't address it without relying on a settled case against Donald Trump. 

John, there is no question that the deals made with China have only benefited China and a handful of individuals. They have cost America thousands of manufacturing jobs and industries. In no way is some local issue the President decided to settle and dispose of during the 2016 election because he had the usual hate-filled assholes trying to defeat him, comparable.

3.1.1  author  Vic Eldred  replied to  MUVA @3.1    5 days ago

"For years, many of us have criticized President Donald Trump for his attacks on the media when they asked him about controversies involving him or his family.  The media however has been largely silent as Democratic leaders have ratcheted up attacks on any journalists who question their positions or the party lines. That was evident recently when Speaker Nancy   Pelosi bizarrely attacked CNN anchor Wolf Blitzer as an apologist for the Trump Administration   simply because he pressed her on blocking the stimulus package.   Other liberals piled on Blitzer   for daring to challenge the party line.  Now Joe Biden has attacked the first reporter from one of the networks who simply asked for a response to the unfolding scandal involving his son Hunter Biden. In emails found on the laptop, Joe Biden is named in communications with foreign figures seeking influence over U.S. policy. Biden refused to comment and then disparaged CBS News reporter Bo Erickson for even asking him the question.

Erickson simply asked “Mr. Biden, what is your response to the New York Post story about your son, sir?”

Biden responded “I have no response.” Then Biden added “I know you’d ask it. I have no response, it’s another smear campaign, right up your alley, those are the questions you always ask.”

Biden has been hammered for   refusing to tell voters whether he will support packing the Supreme Court . This however concerns emails where there are not just allegations of influence peddling worth millions coming from China, Russia, and Ukraine but references to his knowledge or possible involvement. As   I wrote recently,   there is a striking refusal of the Biden campaign to offer the obvious responses to such allegations.

I have expressed my skepticism over how this laptop was found and when it was disclosed publicly. This could very well be the work of foreign intelligence. However, as I discussed this morning in the Hill, that does not mean that the emails and photos are fabricated. Many of us have long denounced Hunter Biden’s work as a classic influence peddling scheme. That does not make it a crime, but it is common form of corruption in Washington. These emails however, if true, would contradict Joe Biden’s past statements of his lack of knowledge or involvement. Moreover, it would shatter Joe Biden’s repeated assurance that his son did “nothing wrong.”  One can argue over whether this is a crime, but few would say that there is nothing wrong with raw influence peddling worth millions with foreign entities.

Now however the question is how other journalists will respond.  ABC has yet to even air the allegations and failed to ask a single question to Biden on it during the recent town hall event. Whether these emails are fabricated or authentic, this story is major news. The question is whether there are major news organizations willing to report it."....JONATHAN TURLEY

A perfectly appropriate request by me to back up his extraordinary claim (one that violates all the metrics that I have seen).   Instead, he continues to illustrate that he has nothing to offer:

I'm pretty sure that the MSM includes Bo Erickson, the reporter from CBS who asked the question.  If Mr. Erickson didn't like the answer, he is more than welcome to keep asking.

And by the way, this:

is hilarious.  There isn't an FBI agent on this planet that would hand over evidence of treasonous wrongdoing to...Rudy Giuliani's lawyer.

Adam Schiff claims Hunter Biden email stories come 'from the Kremlin'

'We know that this whole smear on Joe Biden comes from the Kremlin.'

Adam Shaw 3 hours ago

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff on Friday described revelations from a slew of emails in a laptop allegedly belonging to Hunter Biden as being part of a smear coming “from the Kremlin” -- amid claims the revelations are part of a Russian disinformation campaign.

“We know that this whole smear on Joe Biden comes from the Kremlin," Schiff said on CNN . "That's been clear for well over a year now that they've been pushing this false narrative about this vice president and his son.”

The California Democrat was responding to questions about the origins of emails , found on a laptop purported to belong to the son of Democratic nominee Joe Biden, and first reported by the New York Post.

Those emails reveal that Hunter Biden purportedly introduced his father to a top executive at Ukrainian energy company Burisma Holdings in 2015, while another appears to reportedly outline a payout for Biden as part of a deal with a Chinese energy firm.

While Fox News has not independently verified the Post’s reporting, Fox has spoken to one of the people who was copied on the email about the Chinese energy firm, who confirmed its authenticity.

The Bidens' relationship with Ukraine came under special attention last year as House Democrats pursued an impeachment inquiry surrounding President Trump's July 25 call with Ukraine's president, in which Trump asked the president to look into Biden’s dealings in the country.

Trump in recent days has drawn attention to the new revelations from the Post, something that drew criticism from Schiff.

“The origins of this whole smear are from the Kremlin and the president is only too happy to have Kremlin help in trying to amplify it,” he said Friday on CNN.

The Associated Press reported that the FBI is investigating whether the emails are tied to a foreign influence operation, although the exact scope of what was being investigated was not clear.

Schiff was one of the key figures in both the investigation into allegations about Russian interference in 2016 and the 2019 impeachment hearings, and has a history of making dramatic claims about President Trump’s alleged ties to Russia.

The Wall Street Journal editorial board in May accused Schiff of spreading "falsehoods shamelessly about Russia and Donald Trump for three years even as his own committee gathered contrary evidence."...

They've been investigating Russia for this story? 

They have had the computer since December.
Are they hoping Russia is behind it, just like they hoped to find Russia involved with Donald Trump for three years?
Are the e-mails real?
Who does the hard drive belong to?

Simple questions that the already tarnished FBI should have told the Justice Department by now.

It's time to haul Chris Wray before congress and get the answers.

Vic,

The Post hates Biden. What slant do you think they are going to have? And we all know how unreliable the polls are. I don't believe any of them, pro or con.

Here is the AP's take on this story:

WASHINGTON (AP) — A New York tabloid’s puzzling account about how it acquired emails purportedly from Joe Biden’s son has raised some red flags. One of the biggest involves the source of the emails: Rudy Giuliani.

Giuliani has traveled abroad looking for dirt on the Bidens, developing relationships with shadowy figures, including a Ukrainian lawmaker who U.S. officials have described as a Russian agent and part of a broader Russian effort to denigrate the Democratic presidential nominee.

Yet Giuliani says foreign sources didn’t provide the Hunter Biden emails. He says a laptop containing the emails and intimate photos was simply abandoned in a Delaware repair shop and the shop owner reached out to Giuliani’s lawyer.

That hasn’t stopped the FBI from investigating whether the emails are part of a foreign influence operation. The emails have surfaced as U.S. officials have been warning that Russia, which backed Trump’s 2016 campaign through hacking of Democratic emails and a covert social media campaign, is interfering again this year. The latest episode with Giuliani underscores the risk he poses to a White House that spent years confronted by a federal investigation into whether Trump associates had coordinated with Russia.

The Washington Post reported Thursday that intelligence agencies had warned the White House last year that Giuliani was the target of a Russian influence operation. The newspaper, citing four former officials, said that assessment was based on information including intercepted communications showing Giuliani had been in contact with people tied to Russian intelligence.

The newspaper said national security adviser Robert O’Brien had warned Trump that information Giuliani brought back from Ukraine should be considered contaminated by Russia, but that Trump brushed off the warning.

Far from distancing himself from Giuliani, Trump has made the purported Hunter Biden emails one of his main talking points in the final weeks of the campaign as he tries to disparage his Democratic rival.

The Trump-friendly New York Post began publishing stories about the emails Wednesday, saying it had obtained them from the former New York mayor. The newspaper said the emails of Hunter Biden, a California resident, were found in a laptop that had been dropped off for service at a Delaware repair shop by an unidentified man who never picked it up. They said the shop owner turned it over to the FBI, but also made a copy of the hard drive and provided that to Giuliani’s lawyer.

What does that mean? The New York Times and Washington Post hate Trump. They made common practice of running with stories were based on nothing more than an unnamed source. The latest hit piece from the Times on Trump's taxes don't even have the documents they claim to be quoting from. Yet social medial allowed all of it including the three years of blatant lies about the President being a Russian agent.


 And we all know how unreliable the polls are. I don't believe any of them, pro or con.

I'm with ya!


Here is the AP's take on this story:

Perrie, That AP report has a strange way of telling us that Giuliani was the third party to receive the info. The store owner first went to the FBI (the discredited FBI).


From your AP piece:

"That hasn’t stopped the FBI from investigating whether the emails are part of a foreign influence operation." 

The FBI had them since December (and they were called about them!).  All we need to know from the still untrustworthy FBI is are they real or not.

It's a simple question, Perrie. If they are not - the store owner has committed a fraud. If they are not this whole story can be put to bed.

Why won't the FBI be honest?  We know they are above the law!  A little honesty would help their reputation.

Newly obtained emails from a Hunter Biden business partner lay out in detail how the Vice President’s son and his colleagues used their access to the Obama-Biden administration to arrange private meetings for potential foreign clients and investors at the highest levels in the White House. These never-before-revealed emails outline how a delegation of Chinese investors and Communist Party officials managed to secure a private, off-the-books meeting with then-Vice President Joe Biden.

US spies say the Hunter Biden email controversy shows how 'exploitable' and 'grotesquely vulnerable' Trump and Giuliani are to Russian intelligence

  • Former spooks told Business Insider that Rudy Giuliani's role in coordinating a widely discredited New York Post story and President Donald Trump's willingness to seize on it highlights how vulnerable they are to being duped by Russian intelligence.

  • Federal authorities are currently investigating whether purported emails in the story featuring communications between Hunter Biden and a Burisma Holdings executive were part of a foreign influence operation.

  • Giuliani's access to Trump, the two men's personality traits, their eagerness to obtain dirt on the Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden, and unwillingness to acknowledge Russian interference makes them a goldmine for foreign intelligence services, ex-spies said.

  • They are "grotesquely vulnerable, exploitable targets" and "any foreign intelligence service would be derelict if they did not try to exploit this," said a former CIA covert operative.

  • Steve Hall, the CIA's former chief of Russia operations, also said Trump and Giuliani's tendency to traffic in conspiracies and the rise of misinformation in right-wing media mean "we're doing a lot of [Russia's] work for them."

Does anyone, for a minute, think these people who happily spread actual Russian disinformation about Trump  care if the information came from Russia?  As they've shown, they'll use actual fake information from Russia if it helps against Trump.  Who, for a second, thinks they wouldn't pounce over actual true information obtained from Russian sources about Trump. 

The emails are real or they or not, and Biden is not denying they are real.

The GOP-led Senate Homeland Security Committee on Saturday demanded the FBI make known whether the recently discovered whistleblower emails related to Hunter Biden and father Joe Biden, the Democratic presidential nominee, are legitimate.

“The committee must know whether the FBI has assessed the validity of materials the whistleblower has provided," Chairman Sen. Ron Johnson wrote in a letter to FBI Director Christopher Wray. 

The Wisconsin Republican set a deadline of Thursday to receive the information.

Johnson, whose committee was already investigating Hunter Biden’s business deals in the Ukraine, particularly his lucrative contact with the Burisma Holding energy company, also states in the letter that his committee was contacted by a whistleblower about a week before The New York Post published the emails Wednesday. 

The publishing of the emails, about 20 days before the presidential election, has resulted in speculation about their validity and whether they were acquired by hacking – a possibility, says Twitter, that led the social media platform to temporarily block them from being posted. 

The unverified emails appear to show that in 2015 Biden introduced his father, then-Vice President Joe Biden, to a top Burisma official shortly before the elder Biden pressured Ukraine government officials into firing a prosecutor who was investigating the company.

The Biden campaign has discredited the report, saying the nominee never has such a meeting and that his involvement in the matter was carried out as "official U.S. policy." His campaign also said the candidate "engaged in no wrongdoing."

The meeting is mentioned in a thank you message that Vadym Pozharskyi, an adviser to the board of Burisma, allegedly sent by Hunter Biden on April 17, 2015, about a year after he joined the Burisma board. 

The correspondence appears to contradict what Joe Biden has said about never speaking to his son about his overseas business dealings.

The email and others were reportedly found on a laptop and hard drive left at a repair shop in Biden’s home state of Delaware in April 2019, the store owner says. 

In the letter this weekend to Wray, Johnson says the FBI has already denied committee requests for information such as the validity of the whistleblower’s “claims and assertions,” despite the questions being unrelated to a possible grand jury investigation, under which information can be held. 

“I have a responsibility to validate and verify the contents of any information produced to my committee,” Johnson writes. “This information is crucial for several reasons. For example, if any information offered to the committee was linked to a foreign adversary’s attempt to interfere in the election.

He also makes the case that providing false information to Congress is a crime and that he would expect the FBI to inform him of such a situation.

Johnson has requested several pieces of information including:

This is totally misleading. First of all they were not trying to promote hate, unless you think that White Nationalist are good people. 

Second, the way it was "reported" was a tweet:

384

and when they found out they were wrong, they tweeted this:

Fake news is purposeful. This is just trying to get a jump on a story, and getting it wrong, which happens all the time, in real investigative journalism.

Your last one is actually fake news. Here is the actual AP story still standing:

Sometime you have to put it all out there so they read highlight the important parts:


Intelligence officials warned President Trump  that his personal lawyer  Rudy Giuliani  was the target of an influence campaign conducted by Russian intelligence,  The Washington Post reported  Thursday.

Four former officials familiar with the matter told the Post that the intelligence officers were worried that the president’s personal lawyer was being used to pass Russian misinformation to Trump.

The intelligence community reportedly learned of the campaign through multiple sources, including intercepted communications, that determined Giuliani was communicating with people tied to Russian intelligence during his 2019 trip to Ukraine.

National security adviser Robert O’Brien led efforts to warn Trump about the campaign, saying information provided by Giuliani after trips to Ukraine should be considered to be tainted by Russia, one former official told the newspaper. 

The former official told the paper that the message to Trump was,“Do what you want to do, but your friend Rudy has been worked by Russian assets in Ukraine.” The person added the warning was intended to “to protect” the president “from coming out and saying something stupid,” according to the report.  

O’Brien reportedly was unsure if his message went through to Trump who “shrugged his shoulders” in response and said, “That’s Rudy.”

Giuliani visited Ukraine in December 2019 amid the impeachment investigation into the president's dealings with the country with a goal to dig up information on now-Democratic nominee  Joe Biden  and his son Hunter Biden. Hunter Biden previously served on the board of a Ukrainian gas company, Burisma.

I ntelligence officers had also provided written warnings to the White House about Giuliani being a target for Russians earlier in 2019 before his trip.

One former official said “that everybody [in the intelligence community who knew about it] was talking about how hard it was going to be to try to get [Giuliani] to stop, to take seriously the idea that he was being used as a conduit for misinformation.”

The Post noted that the information Giuliani was looking for was similar to what was included in emails published in the controversial New York Post piece this week. The New York Post said those documents came from a laptop belonging to Hunter Biden that Giuliani and Trump’s former political adviser Stephen Bannon gave to reporters.

The newspaper said it was unable to verify the authenticity of the alleged communications that detailed Hunter Biden. 

Several senior administration officials, including Attorney General  William Barr , FBI Director Christopher Wray and White House counsel Pat Cipollone “all had common understanding” that Russia was targeting the president’s personal lawyer. 

The FBI declined to comment, and the Justice Department did not immediately return a request for comment to The Hill.

A spokesperson for the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI) directed the Post to the White House for comment. 
“National Security Advisor O’Brien and White House Counsel Cipollone meet with the President frequently on a variety of matters. Ambassador O’Brien does not comment on sensitive intelligence topics, or on the advice he provides President Trump,” National Security Council spokesperson John Ullyot told The Hill. 

He added that O’Brien “can say that the President always treats such briefings with the utmost seriousness. The characterization of the meeting as described in this article is not accurate.”

The former officials told the Post that Giuliani was not under U.S. surveillance while in Ukraine but was talking to alleged Russian intelligence who were being surveilled. 

Giuliani told the Post he was never informed that Andriy Derkach, a pro-Russia legislator in Ukraine, was a Russian asset and he “only had secondary information and I was not considering him a witness.”  

Derkach, whom Giuliani met with in Ukraine and New York, was sanctioned by the Department of Treasury in September and accused by ODNI of “spreading claims about corruption … to undermine” Biden and the Democratic Party in August.

No, your posting shows that the FBI warned the President about Giuliani being the target of an "influence campaign." Nowhere did they warn Giuliani. Sound familiar?

Four former officials familiar with the matter told the Post

That is not acceptable. The Post must identify them and provide some details. For three years we've heard this tripe about "Russia" from the msm.


National security adviser Robert O’Brien led efforts to warn Trump about the campaign, saying information provided by Giuliani after trips to Ukraine should be considered to be tainted by Russia, one former official told the newspaper. 

Again - Robert O'Brien is named, but it is an unknown source telling this story.


Giuliani visited Ukraine in December 2019 amid the impeachment investigation into the president's dealings with the country with a goal to dig up information on now-Democratic nominee   Joe Biden   and his son Hunter Biden. Hunter Biden previously served on the board of a Ukrainian gas company, Burisma.

That I believe to be true and based on what the VP announced about getting a prosecutor fired was fair game.


One former official said 

Again - that is absolutely nothing. We can't trust that anymore.


The Post noted that the information Giuliani was looking for was similar to what was included in emails published in the controversial New York Post piece this week.

Of course he was - We all know that Hunter was trading on his father's name - does anyone deny that? The point is that the media refused to even cover that story. We are now learning that Joe was lying though his teeth when he said he had no knowledge of Hunter's business dealings and may of also lined his pockets with money from the country that gave us covid.


The FBI declined to comment, and the Justice Department did not immediately return a request for comment to The Hill.

It's very simple - just tell the nation if the e-mails are real!!!!!!!


Giuliani told the Post he was never informed that Andriy Derkach, a pro-Russia legislator in Ukraine, was a Russian asset and he “only had secondary information and I was not considering him a witness. ” 

And that I believe. Beyond that the e-mails did not originate with Giuliani. They were reported by a store owner. First to the FBI.

We want the truth and we want it now!

going to ignore my statement and ask something irrelevant...

Since you pushed actual Russian propaganda after it was reported fake, why does Guiliani's alleged discussions bother you? There's nothing funnier than watching the Steele Dossier cheerleaders act agasht about Russian involvement. IF it's fake news like the Steele dossier, I'll be the first to say we shouldn't talk about it and will attack any Republican congressman who lies about the emails the way Adam Schiff lied about the Steele dossier. 

why doesn't anyone from the Biden campaign or Hunter Biden simply say "these aren't my emails."  Easiest thing in the world to do, and would at least create some basis for all the unsupported cries of "fake news. "Trump had no problem denying the fake allegations of the Steele dossier.
