A Daily Mail article discusses an interview with Hunter Biden about his laptop stating the following:
In the interview, Hunter shirks away from it again, saying ‘There could be a laptop out there that was stolen from me.
‘It could be that I was hacked. It could be that it was the — that it was Russian intelligence.’
He maintains that he doesn’t know if the computer was his, protesting: ‘For real! I don’t know!’
The laptop was discovered during the campaign and threatened his father’s campaign.
t contained emails that showed Hunter communicating with a Ukrainian businessman where the pair discussed what looked like a meeting between the businessman and Joe, when Joe was Vice President.
The emails first emerged in a report by The New York Post.
It suggested that Joe met with Ukrainian businessman Vadym Pozharskyi, months before putting pressure on Ukrainian officials to fire a prosecutor who was investigating Pozharskyi’s firm.
Shortly after the purported meeting, a Ukrainian prosecutor who had been investigating the businessman dropped the charges.
It raised serious red flags about whether Joe had abused his power in any way, with some suggesting he’d called in favors to help his son, who earned millions through vague business deals in China and Ukraine.
He was on the board of Burisma Holdings, Ukraine’s largest natural gas producer, and was also on the board of BHR Partners, a Chinese private equity firm.
His experience before then had been as a lawyer and lobbyist.
Joe has always denied, broadly, any wrong-doing but Hunter has never been properly quizzed on the specifics of the Ukraine emails.
The email, sent in April 2015, read: ‘Dear Hunter, thank you for inviting me to DC and giving an opportunity to meet your father and spent [sic] some time together. It’s realty [sic] an honor and pleasure’.
Hunter had just joined Burisma, which was paying him $50,000 a month, and Pozharskyi was the number three executive in the company.
Eight months later, Biden put pressure on Ukrainian leaders to fire a prosecutor who had publicly announced that they planned to investigate Burisma.
Biden boasted about it at the time.
When the emails emerged in October last year, the Biden campaign was vague in their response to them.
The story was censored by Facebook, which claimed it had not had a chance to ‘fact check it’, and was also temporarily suspended on Twitter.
Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey apologized for it afterwards.
