No, because what Rudy has are only copies of HB's hard drives, not HB's actual laptop. That was already taken by the FBI long ago.

Has it ever been established that the siezed laptop belonged to Hunter Biden?

I can't confirm that. All I can confirm is that the laptop at the repair shop that was reported to be HB's was seized by the FBI.

If the FBI has the laptop, what's the story on it contents? Does a copy exist?

Looks like GOP propagandists are trying to squeeze some blood out of the corpse of a failed disinfo campaign. It's midterm year, so expect more of the same.

I'm sure this post will age well. At least we will get a huge pile of "Biden soon to be impeached because of his sons laptop" up to "Ukraine war because of Hunter Biden".

Will be very entertaining.

In my opinion, this may be a little premature. Have you seen Heels-up Harris' public appearances lately? She makes Dotard Biden look like an intellectual powerhouse in comparison.

I have a hard time seeing any other interpretation. Let's remember the laptop story was so explosive that the media buried it and Twitter blocked the NY Post from its account, despite the fact that nobody in the Biden camp ever denied that it was in fact Hunter's laptop. They even rounded up a bunch of "intelligence professionals" to sign a letter saying the laptop story was classic Russian disinformation. And now, some 16 months after the election, suddenly the Times gets interested in the laptop story?

First "Pedo Biden" and now "Heels-up Harris". Frankly, the use of these terms says more about the user than either Biden or Harris.

The problem here is the chain of custody and lack of any control over faking the evidence.

In addition, there is not only no corroborating evidence, there is the opposite, evidence Hunter exerted no influence over his father's political actions. At most Hunter misled people who put him on their payroll/boards.

Obama said it looked bad, that was about it.

Hilarious.

In one corner we have the worst president in the history of the country. Tried to steal an election, supported a coup attempt, has no brain, surrounds himself with criminals. Dumb ones, at that.

In the other corner we have Biden. Something about a laptop, and Hunter did something or other.

I don't give a ****. Biden was the man that dethroned Trump, and if that's all it turns out that he's good for, I am 100% fine with that. I don't give a **** about the laptop.

There is no argument to be made against Biden when the alternative was the disaster that is Trump.

When people attack Biden like this as some of the braindead dorks in this forum do, I think to myself that they must like Trump better. How is that possible? Hate Biden, sure, be conservative, but gawdamn if you still carry a torch for Trump you're _________ (fill in the blank, I already got a warning)

He's written a book putting everything out in the open, or at least as out in the open as a person admitting to all their crack cocaine use can.

Oddly enough, he truly doesn't know if that is his laptop or not.

Compared to Donny Jr, Hunter Biden is pretty classy at the moment.

Now that Hunter was shown to be lying thru his teeth, none of the mainstream news has the integrity to fess up. The liberal NY times finally posted an article, although it wasn't in the headlines.

The Washington Post runs with a story about millions of dollars going from a Chinese company to accounts controlled by Hunter Biden:

Quote:
The Post analysis included forensic work by two outside experts who assessed the authenticity of numerous emails related to the CEFC matter. In addition, The Post found that financial documents on the copy of Hunter Biden’s purported laptop match documents and information found in other records, including newly disclosed bank documents obtained by Sen. Charles E. Grassley of Iowa, a senior Republican on the Senate Finance and Judiciary committees.

The potential energy projects Hunter Biden discussed with CEFC never came to fruition.

Nonetheless, accounts linked to Hunter Biden received at least $3.79 million in payments from CEFC through consulting contracts, according to bank records and joint agreements reviewed by The Post.
Remember that's the Washington Post, not the NY Post. The walls are closing in on Joe Biden!

I thought it was the "sins of the father" visited upon the son, not the other way round.

More seriously, though. If Hunter is taking advantage of his family name but is otherwise operating independently...

Why on Joe Biden? Did any of these show Pres. Biden was involved? The article doesn't say so. In fact it says "The Post did not find evidence that Joe Biden personally benefited from or knew details about the transactions with CEFC, which took place after he had left the vice presidency and before he announced his intentions to run for the White House in 2020."

From the article, it was James and Hunter Biden who were involved with this. Even then, there was no claim that either had done anything illegal.

But why is the WaPo running with it now, and the Times about 10 days ago? The laptop story was actually pretty much dead and buried, but now suddenly both of our biggest liberal mouthpieces greatest newspapers can't resist reporting on this 16-month-old timely story?

If people take off the CNN rose colored glasses, they will see that Biden and Hunter are far more corrupt than anything Trump did. If that laptop belonged to Donald Trump jr. would the mainstream news call it "Russian disinformation" or would it be on CNN and MSN, ABC, CBS and NBC 24/7?

Trump might be corrupt, but he made his money before entering politics while Biden and son made their money because they were in politics. Well, Hunter used Joke Biden to make his money. That much is clear. And Joke lied about not knowing about it,

If I never have to hear about the failson Hunter ever again, that would be swell.
Yeah, there should be a rule in politics that unless you do more than the proforma support to your political family member, you're off limits. I've said the most awful things imaginable about Trump's nits who grew into lice. But I've never said anything about Tiffany and certainly not about Barron. The three oldest and the Kushner boy became part of Trump's political machine and are fair game. Hunter isn't really involved in his dad's political operation and should be left alone.

No Proof the Laptop isn't just another Russian Fakes using some Real Emails from servers that were already known to be hacked long ago.
You have to prove more than just a couple of Emails when dealing with a Russian Disinformation campaign. This could simply be another salted well.

Oh, you mean like this?

New details in Hunter Biden federal investigation
Multiple sources say the federal investigation into Hunter Biden's business practices is broader than previously known. The probe is exploring whether Biden and his associates violated tax, money laundering and foreign lobbying laws. Catherine Herridge takes a look.

What once began as an investigation to see if Hunter Biden paid taxes, has now broadened with a growing number of witnesses called before a grand jury, according to people familiar with the investigation. The investigation is being run by the U.S. attorney in Delaware, a hold-over from the Trump Administration. Officials say it’s far from being over.

I hate to burst your bubble, but everything on that laptop related to Hunter's dealings with China happened after Joe left the office of VP and before he ran for POTUS in 2020.

"The Post did not find evidence that Joe Biden personally benefited from or knew details about the transactions with CEFC, which took place after he had left the vice presidency and before he announced his intentions to run for the White House in 2020."


Yeah, Trump hasn't made any money from being in politics:

Quote:
Mr. Trump’s overall war chest entering 2022 stood at $122 million — more than double the cash on hand of the Republican National Committee itself — as he continued to solicit his online supporters with the same pace and intensity of the heat of the campaign.

While his $122 million are stored in federal accounts that legally cannot be spent on a presidential run, loose rules allow him to fully fund his political operation for now, including paying for rallies, television ads and even direct money to his own businesses.
This doesn't even account for the money his golf courses and hotels made during his presidency when those businesses charged the government (AKA tax payers) for rooms, banquet facilities, golf carts, etc. for his staff, secret service, etc.

Yeah, so tell us all again how Trump didn't make money off politics. Pull the other one , Joe. It's got bells on.

If there is a laptop and there is an email in, that does not prove that the words in the email have any truth to them. You can't take an email to court. You need a paper trail to prove any $$ moved to Biden. Plus, it is all Hunter Biden. There is no proof of daddy Biden anywhere.

The conspiracy theory remains a conspiracy theory.
