Uh Oh: Here's Why the FBI Is Now Investigating Hunter Biden's Emails
Townhall.com ^ | October 16, 2020 | Matt Vespa

Well, I’m sure you all know the October surprise by now. Hunter Biden is back. We have emails. And it looks like former Vice President Joe Biden has been exposed as a total liar regarding his son’s shady business dealings. The New York Post had the scoop. They’ve been churning out stories about Hunter’s business arrangements, which was never asked of Joe Biden during his town hall event with ABC News. Talk about safe territory. 

The elder Biden has said that he didn’t know anything about his son’s business ventures. Well, that’s just not true Joe. Hunter was on the board of a Ukrainian energy company, Burisma. Hunter knew squat about energy but was put there in 2014—earning $50k/month. He was there to sell access, allegedly, to top Obama officials. Burisma got that (via NY Post):

Among the emails on the hard drive was one which indicated Hunter Biden introduced his father to a top executive at a Ukrainian energy firm who was at the time under investigation before the elder Biden pressured government officials in Ukraine to fire that prosecutor a year later.

The emails were on Hunter’s MacBook Pro, which he dropped off at a repair shop in Delaware in April of last year. He didn’t pick it up, so the owner made copies and also turned the computer over to the FBI, who had this for months. What were they doing, especially since we have reports that the FBI is reviewing the emails as part of a possible foreign spy operation (via the Hill):

Biggs/GOPers to Wray: Was the FBI in possession of the laptop and hard drive that was documented in the New York Post article?
2. Did the FBI take any steps to authenticate the laptop, hard drive, and data that was uncovered?— Chad Pergram (@ChadPergram) October 15, 2020

Federal authorities are investigating if emails allegedly discovered on a laptop at a Delaware repair shop discussing Democratic nominee Joe Biden and his son Hunter Biden’s activities in Ukraine were connected to a foreign intelligence operation, NBC News reported Thursday night. 

Two people familiar with the matter told the network about the federal investigation.

The FBI took the laptop and a hard drive through a grand jury subpoena that was later published by the New York Post, a conservative newspaper

The FBI declined to comment to The Hill on the reported probe, citing its standard practice of not confirming or denying an investigation.

[…]

The New York Post said the repair shop owner, identified by the Daily Beast as John Paul Mac Isaac, informed the FBI and a Giuliani associate the laptop belonged to Hunter Biden because of a sticker on it for the Beau Biden Foundation, a charity for his deceased brother. 

“Before turning over the gear, the shop owner says, he made a copy of the hard drive and later gave it to former Mayor Rudy Giuliani’s lawyer, Robert Costello,” the Post said. “Steve Bannon, former adviser to President Trump, told The Post about the existence of the hard drive in late September and Giuliani provided The Post with a copy of it on Sunday.”

Regarding the emails’ authenticity, well, not even the Biden camp can outright deny it as fabrications. They’re probably not. Hunter is a swamp creature—and that aspect got a lot of sunshine over the past 24 hours.

In yet another of his well-practiced falsehoods, Joe Biden has said "he didn’t know anything" about Hunter's overseas business
ventures, and that Hunter was earning $50,000 a month--or more--on the board of the totally corrupt Ukrainian energy company.

This was at a time when Biden was Obama's point man in Ukraine.

Hunter's main job at Burisma was to "sell access," allegedly to top Obama officials, including his VP dad.

Burisma got that in spades (see NY Post link).

There’s still time for more October suprises. From both sides. One of my biggest fears is a mass shooting that would put guns in a bad light. Kinda like that idiot that sent fake bombs to the Rats in 2018.

is ‘investigation’ a euphemism for
1. destroying Evidence, and
2. protecting child rapists, and
3. delay justice of politically connected Democrats
no matter how many children are raped and killed?

yes. it is again, apparently.

VIA Politico: Denial after denial until the emails surfaced, "Biden’s campaign now says it would not rule out
the possibility that VP Biden did, in fact, have some kind of informal interaction with Pozharskyi..."

REFERENCE---- .....Amos Hochstein, who worked for Biden when he was vice president in 2015, told Politico.....
(he) couldn’t definitively state Biden was never approached by Vadym Pozharskyi, an adviser to the board Burisma.

VP schedule

Biden denied meeting with the Burisma official who emailed personal thanks to Hunter for setting up the meeting...
Yet found on Biden's official VP schedule was a meeting at the Obama White House between VP Joe Biden
and the notorious George Soros and US Special Envoy and Coordinator of International Energy Affairs,
Amos Hochstein. Both are linked to Ukraine and energy policy.

I agree. The Rats have to change the narrative right now. They can’t, thanks to Twitter and Facebook.

Everything is backfiring on the Dem’s “strategic plan”.

Another interesting Hunter email, this one to a female family member, indicating that Joe Biden required Hunter to send Joe 50% of Hunter’s income.

I’m sure the FBI didn’t want these to come out. They have become the Federal Bureau for Protecting the Swamp.

Good question.......I’d say Obama is “The Big Guy.”

Joe Biden is a puny addle-brained suck-up....is all he is.

Actually that’s a great point ! By denying “credibility” to this story they’ve raised the bar beyond the anti Trump false narratives they normally promote. Checkmate ?!

The email by Hunter to his sister mentioning that they had to kick back 50% of their ill-gotten gain to “Pop” (Joe) was interesting.

Even Paulie in “Goodfellows” didn’t get that much “tribute” from his mafia underlings.

Joe’s had his crime family running like a well-oiled machine for decades, apparently.

I was actually thinking of the correlation between the Goodfella’s crew and the Bidens. I can see Hunter going to get “made”.

The democrat friendly media, basically all of the msm, will come to the rescue and cover for him. After what Trump has been through, I have not a smidgen of sympathy for them.
