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

maybe we should do a ‘search’ for Schiff’s name in the Hunter emails, hmmmmmm???
That seals it! You know they are real now.
Neither Biden ever went to The Ukraine?
Let’s see Humpher’s taxes.
This alternative reality of Russian boogeymen had got to stop. It’s ridiculous on his face and has been a lie every time they’ve used it.
I sure know what to say when they dish out the October Surprise against Trump.
IT’S THE RUSSIANS!!!
Two can play at this ridiculous game.
Russia explains everything for that little weasel.
Dude really does need a psych eval.
So are the emails real or not? How did russia get hunter’s laptop? What does any of this have to do with russia?
They fell for the “Russia, Russia, Russia” scam—again.
You can’t fix stupid!
Is his source the same people who said they had “pictures of naked Trump”?
Lets SEE the repair contract in hunters handwriting. Enough talking about the proofs; we need to see them. Theyre working on the counter narrative and that is the story that is going to get traction
And that image of Hunter with the crack pipe, Russian agents forced him to do it.
Putin should sue the Democratic Party and the mass media lapdogs for libel.
From the Kremlin ? And ?
The point is to know if it’s true ! Bad try Schiff
This reeks of desperation now. The blame Russia narrative is becoming the Democrats “my dog ate my homework” go to excuse!
If I was Schift I would be somewhat caucus about pissing of Putin.
Does he have ANY evidence or is it just the democrats screaming “Nah-nah-nah, I’m rubber you’re glue, whatever you say bounces off of me and sticks to you!”?
And somehow magically appeared on his laptop?
Got any proof, Schiff?
No, didn’t think so. So STFU!
Argumentum ad hominem, attacking the source, the most used logical fallacy of the Left.
It wouldn’t matter WHAT the source of the “stories” is.
What matters is their VERACITY.
If they are true, then Hunter is looking at prison time, and so, perhaps, is his father.
This guy must check for Russians under his bed every night. He’s definitely got an unhealthy fixation.
