The FBI is now investigating Hunter Biden's emails!
They're not investigating the emails themselves.
They're investigating whether or not the emails came from Russia.
Oh, boy. Here we go again.
Instead of investigating whether the emails are part of "Russian disinformation," shouldn't we be investigating the content of the emails themselves?
Is there any evidence that these emails could have come from Russia?
Or is this a pre-conceived notion because of the infamous 2016 Russia hoax against President Trump?
More details on this disappointing development below:
We can't make this stuff up.
It appears that the FBI spent more time investigating a "noose" in a NASCAR garage than Hunter's emails.
Now, they appear to be ignoring the emails... and focusing on whether or not they came from Russia instead!
The USA Today confirms:
Federal authorities are investigating whether a Russian influence operation was behind the disclosure of emails purporting to document the Ukrainian and Chinese business dealings of Hunter Biden, the son of Democratic nominee Joe Biden, a person briefed on the matter said Friday.
The FBI's examination is tied to the New York Post's reporting this week on the contents of a computer hard drive it obtained from President Donald Trump's personal lawyer, Rudy Giuliani.
According to newspaper's account, the computer data had been provided to Giuliani by the owner of a Delaware computer repair shop where a laptop had been left for service last year but was never claimed by the customer.
The FBI's review comes after U.S. intelligence officials warned last month that Russia has been working to denigrate Joe Biden in advance of next month's presidential election.
Robert Costello, an attorney representing Giuiliani, said he was not aware of an FBI inquiry.
Representatives of the New York Post, meanwhile, did not respond to requests for comment Friday night.
FBI officials declined to confirm or deny the existence of the inquiry.
The person briefed on the matter, who is not authorized to comment publicly, confirmed the FBI's involvement but did not elaborate on the scope of the bureau's review. The development comes just weeks before the 2020 election, and as Trump has pressed the Justice Department to punish Biden and other Obama administration officials for its pursuit of an investigation into Russia's interference in the 2016 election.
Here's our question:
If the FBI has had posession of Hunter's laptop since 2019, then why are they just now investigating whether or not it's from Russia?
We're not making any accusations.
However, to the average observer, it seems more than just a convenient cop out.
You would think that after 3 years of claims of Russia disinformation, the Democrats would figure out a new tactic.
But we can all see what's going on for ourselves.
The Chicago Tribune describes this as an "unlikely story":
The FBI is investigating whether emails that were published by the New York Post related to Joe Biden’s son, Hunter, are connected to a possible Russian influence operation to spread disinformation, according to a person familiar with the matter.
The newspaper said in its story Wednesday that it had obtained a hard drive from Rudy Giuliani containing the emails, and that the messages were found on a laptop that had been left last year at a Delaware computer repair shop for service but never retrieved.
The unlikely account of how the emails surfaced raised immediate questions about Russian involvement, particularly because U.S. officials have warned that Russia — which backed Trump’s 2016 campaign through hacking and a covert social media campaign — is interfering again this year.
The episode is being investigated as part of a possible Russian influence operation, according to a person familiar with the matter who spoke on condition of anonymity to The Associated Press to discuss an ongoing matter. It underscores the extent to which Giuliani, through his activities, is a risk to a White House that spent years shadowed by a federal investigation into whether Trump associates had coordinated with Russia.
The authenticity of the emails remained unclear as of Friday, including whether they were hacked or possibly forged or both. Giuliani did not respond to an Associated Press request for comment, but he said in a Fox News interview Friday that the material was “authentic as hell.”
An FBI spokeswoman declined to comment Friday, citing the bureau’s practice of neither confirming nor denying investigations.
One thing is true:
If this were one of President Trump's children, the media would be all over this story.
But the media appears intent on protecting Joe Biden and his family from scrutiny!
No wonder President Trump calls them Fake News!
