The Biden Scandal In Three Barks: Why The Most Telling Elements May Be What We Were Not Told

Below is my earlier column on the Biden controversy and the notable omission of three responses that one would have expected in the days following the disclosure in the New York Post. As I have said repeatedly, the timing and manner in which this information came to the public is highly suspicious and could well be the work of foreign intelligence. Even Rudy Giuliani now puts the chances that he worked with a Russian agent at “50-50.”  However, that would still leave the question of whether the underlying emails are authentic. The Clinton emails were hacked by the Russians but they were also true.  These emails show clear influence peddling, if they are authentic. Instead of addressing the specific emails or even denying their authenticity, figures like Rep. Adam Schiff simply dismissed the story as a Russian hit job.  For his part, Joe Biden dismissed reporters asking him about the emails as participating in a smear campaign.  There are legitimate questions about how this information was produced (questions that the FBI is reportedly investigating). However, there are also legitimate questions about the content of some of these emails and what they say about an alleged influence peddling scheme related to a presidential candidate.

Here is the column:

The convergence of law and politics is a common occurrence in Washington. While law is used to ascertain truth, politics is often used to obscure it.

That is why the truth is rarely evident in looking at a scandal straight on. Rather it requires peripheral vision or analysis – often what is not evident is what is most enlightening.

This most famous example of such reasoning was found in Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s story “Silver Blaze,” on Sherlock Holmes’s investigation of the disappearance of a racehorse.

The local inspector asked if there was “any point to which you would wish to draw my attention?”

Holmes responds, “To the curious incident of the dog in the nighttime.”

When the inspector objects, “The dog did nothing in the night-time,” Holmes replies, “That was the curious incident.”

There is always something a tad curious of Washington legal scandals in what has not occurred. That is why the latest Hunter Biden scandal is so curious.

When the story broke in the New York Post, the Biden campaign was faced with thousands of emails that purportedly showed clear support for allegations that Hunter Biden was given millions as part of an influence-peddling scheme related to his father, then-Vice President Joe Biden.

There was ample reason to be skeptical about the sketchy account of a computer being left by Hunter Biden at a computer store with a man who cannot see beyond a couple of feet.  And then there is the timing of disclosure just weeks before an election.

The problem was the absence of “barks” from the Biden camp. The computer files revealed a host of embarrassing pictures of Hunter Biden using drugs or exposed in other embarrassing ways. The emails contain dates and addresses that match up with confirmed records.

If they are fabricated, there were three barks that we would have expected within hours of the release.

Bark 1: This was not Hunter Biden’s computer

The most obvious response would be that this is not the computer of Hunter Biden.  After all, the computer store owner John Paul Mac Isaac who is legally blind said that he could not recognize the person who dropped off the laptop.

However, Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani has now stated, as a fact, that “the laptop was left by Hunter Biden, in an inebriated, heavily inebriated state with the merchant.”  That does not purport with what Isaac said.

However, there remains the question of a laptop with a “Beau Biden Foundation” sticker on it with highly incriminating files.

Someone in the campaign must have called Hunter Biden and he had to have told them whether or not it was his laptop.

The response on ownership has been crickets for days.

Bark 2: These were not Hunter Biden’s photos or emails

Even if the campaign cannot deny that the computer was Hunter Biden’s, it could deny that these incriminating pictures and emails were his.

Again, crickets.

Note that if these are fabricated emails or pictures, this would be a serious federal crime and the basis for legal action.

The Biden camp has no shortage of lawyers. Indeed, they have been signing up lawyers in droves in preparation for election challenges.

Yet, there is not a single allegation of fraud or fabrication after days of a brewing scandal.

Bark 3: This is defamation

Perhaps this bark is the most telling. If these emails or pictures are fabricated, it is a clear case of defamation and other tort actions.

It would seem that one of the hundreds of lawyers currently lined up by the Biden campaign would fire off an “intent to sue” letter.

Truth is a defense to defamation, so the letter might start with the earlier bark and deny that this was Hunter Biden’s computer and these were Hunter Biden’s file.

One big difference between the legal and political worlds is that in the latter there is no protection for the right to remain silent. In politics, scandals can be managed but not silently.

Instead of these obvious barks, the public heard something closer to a whimper: that the campaign could not find any notation on Vice President Biden’s official schedule that he met with a Ukrainian figure connected to the payments to his son Hunter Biden.It would be a curious sight in itself for Biden’s official schedule to include “meeting with Ukrainian connected to Hunter.” Many meetings are not part of an official schedule that staffers know is subject to official records laws for preservation and review.

That is what is so curious about the Hunter Biden story and, to move from Sir Arthur Conan Doyle to Lewis Carroll, it is becoming “curiouser and curiouser.”

  1. “Foreign intelligence?” If any intelligence agency were involved, it would most likely be US intelligence. However, it is known that the computer has been in the hands of the FBI since last December WHILE SCHIFF WAS IMPEACHING DONALD TRUMP! It is obvious that the laptop was turned over to the FBI and to Republicans to use in the Senate trial that never occurred. I’m sure Donald Trump knew about it at the time. Giuliani didn’t reveal it’s existence until now because it has more impact than it would have in December.

  2. Seriously if Biden and/or Harris get elected there will be no elected President and VicePresident except Trump and Pence. Both y y Harris cBiden and especially Harris cannot be seat nor even administered the Oath of Office. If they did they are instantly felons.due to their prior allegiance to a foreign ideology. That you find by reading the actual Oath of Office. So the outcome is good either way.

    1. What a conspiracy theorist you are. Neither Harris nor Biden have a prior allegiance to a foreign ideology, and if for some reason they couldn’t be administered the Oath of Office on Inauguration Day, the Speaker of the House would become President, not Trump or Pence.

      1. A they are socialists and that is a foreign ideology and takinig the oath of office t the Constitution makes them illegals. But I dohn’t expect one of the commies to who has NEVER produced a single fact to understand that so I write it for the benefit of the cognizant.

    2. Harris cannot be seated because she is not eligible for the office of vice president or president as her parents were foreign citizens at the time of the candidate’s birth – Harris is merely a “citizen” not a “natural born citizen.”
      ___________________

      Kamala Harris will NEVER be eligible to be U.S. president.

      Kamala Harris’ parents were foreign citizens at the time of her birth.

      – A mere “citizen” could only have been President at the time of the adoption of the Constitution – not after.

      – The U.S. Constitution, Article 2, Section 1, Clause 5, requires the President to be a “natural born citizen,” which, by definition in the Law of Nations, requires “parents who are citizens” at the time of birth of the candidate and that he be “…born of a father who is a
      citizen;…”

      – Ben Franklin thanked Charles Dumas for copies of the Law of Nations which “…has been continually in the hands of the members of our Congress, now sitting,…”

      – “The importance of The Law of Nations, therefore, resides both in its systematic derivation of international law from natural law and in its compelling synthesis of the modern discourse of natural jurisprudence with the even newer language of political economy. The features help to explain the continuing appeal of this text well into the nineteenth century among politicians, international lawyers and political theorists of every complexion,” Law of Nations Editors Bela Kapossy and Richard Whatmore.

      – The Jay/Washington letter of July, 1787, raised the presidential requirement from citizen to “natural born citizen” to place a “strong check” against foreign allegiances by the commander-in-chief.

      – Every American President before Obama had two parents who were American citizens.

      – The Constitution is not a dictionary and does not define words or phrases like “natural born citizen” as a dictionary, while the Law of Nations, 1758, did.

      Law of Nations, Vattel, 1758
      Book 1, Ch. 19

      § 212. Citizens and natives.

      “The citizens are the members of the civil society; bound to this society by certain duties, and subject to its authority, they equally participate in its advantages. The natives, or natural-born citizens, are those born in the country, of parents who are citizens. As the society cannot exist and perpetuate itself otherwise than by the children of the citizens, those children naturally follow the condition of their fathers, and succeed to all their rights. The society is supposed to desire this, in consequence of what it owes to its own preservation; and it is presumed, as matter of course, that each citizen, on entering into society, reserves to his children the right of becoming members of it. The country of the fathers is therefore that of the children; and these become true citizens merely by their tacit consent. We shall soon see whether, on their coming to the years of discretion, they may renounce their right, and what they owe to the society in which they were born. I say, that, in order to be of the country, it is necessary that a person be born of a father who is a citizen; for, if he is born there of a foreigner, it will be only the place of his birth, and not his country.”

  3. The Russian’s did not hack Hillary Clinton’s email. A disenfranchised Bernie Sanders supporter — dismayed at Clinton’s and the DNC’s fix to make her queen — stole and gave them to WikiLeaks. He was then mugged.. erm, I mean murdered.

    His name was Seth Rich.

    1. You’re a conspiracy theorist.

      All of our Intelligence community, including the nonpartisan DNI and the bipartisan Senate Intelligence Committee, have confirmed that the Russians hacked the DNC.

      1. Actually, the correct word is “alleged,” not “confirmed. Intelligence agencies don’t have the ability to confirm anything. They compile information and evaluate it.

        1. Intelligence agencies confirm things all the time. Also, the Senate Intelligence Committee isn’t an intelligence agency.

      2. “…
        The Clinton emails were hacked by the Russians but they were also true. 
        …”

        CrowdStrike, the private cyber-security firm that first accused Russia of hacking Democratic Party emails and served as a critical source for U.S. intelligence officials in the years-long Trump-Russia probe, acknowledged to Congress more than two years ago that it had no concrete evidence that Russian hackers stole emails from the Democratic National Committee’s server.
        (https://www.realclearinvestigations.com/articles/2020/05/13/hidden_over_2_years_dem_cyber-firms_sworn_testimony_it_had_no_proof_of_russian_hack_of_dnc_123596.html)

        Bill Binney, more importantly, demonstrated from the beginning of this “Russian Conspiracy”, this incredible popular delusion, this McCarthyism, that he tried numerous times from numerous locations to “hack”, which is to say “download” the so-called Clinton e-mails, but could not. (The issue is speed).

        Moreover, he challenged anyone to examine, to dispute his finds. No one did or can dispute his findings.
        There was no “hack”, Russian or otherwise.
        Mr. Binney challenged anyone to show, to demonstrate that a hack was practical or even possible from a technological basis.
        No one did or has ever shown or demonstrated how a “hack”, Russian or otherwise was done.

        Nevertheless, the professor persists in babbling this falsehood.

        Why?
        dennis hanna

          1. I did read it more than once.

            “…
            MR. HENRY: Counsel just reminded me that, as it relates to the DNC, we have indicators that the data was exfiltrated, we do not have concrete evidence that the data was exfiltrated from the DNC, but we do have indicators that it was exfiltrated.
            …”

            Simply, Mr. Henry is being told by his attorney that their is no evidence that the e-mails were copied or downloaded, only “indicators”, which in computer speak means, there are suggestions that someone or something viewed the e-mails.

            No evidence of copying or down loading.

            Mr. Henry is a political operative with economic-financial self interest.

            Mr. Bill Binney’s work and evidence has not been disputed, discredited or disproved.

            Science, not politics or economic-financial self interest shows evidence.

            Incidentally, none of this is in any doubt or question by people with a modicum of technical-computer knowledge or understanding.

            Nor is it news.

            dennis hanna

            1. Indicators are more than “suggestions,” and he say so, explaining “forensic information, indicators of compromise, which are pieces of malware, et cetera, we provided all of that to the FBl … And when we sat with them in June, we provided them with a lot of the indicators, the malware, and other pieces of code that we took off of the computer network. … On the document dump, as you’ve referred to it, there was data that we know was taken off of the DCCC. And we’ve, I think, chronicled, documented that in the report. There is evidence of exfiltration, not conclusive, but indicators of exfiltration off the DNC. … let me also state that if somebody was monitoring an email server, they could read all the email. And there might not be evidence of it being exfiltrated, but they would have knowledge of what was in the email. … There would be ways to copy it. You courd take screenshots. You could copy it. … There is circumstantial evidence that that data was exfiltrated off the network.”

              He also said “we had a high degree of confidence it was the Russian Government,” and in response to Rep. Stewart (UT),” who said “one question very quickly. There are some press reports or some people at least claim that this hack on the DNC did not — was not perpetrated by the Russians. How do you respond to that?,” Henry said “Everything in my experience, sir, having done this for many, many years, both in the government and in the private sector, says that it was the Russian Government.”

              You’re really going to base your case on whether it was exfiltrated vs. screenshots copied as they were monitoring the server??

      3. “All of our Intelligence community”

        It was the CIA and the NSA only. Not “all” of the intel agencies.

        To this day not a single shred of verifiable forensic IT proving their assertions that Russians hacked her servers has ever been proffered by the CIA or NSA.

        In fact, the case against the 13 Russians that Mueller had indicted was dropped, and summarily dismissed.

        Owning you is so easy, Anon. So easy that it’s getting boring, due to your lack of intelligence.

          1. I was specifically referring to owning you, not “people”, Anon.

            And your reply only serves to further prove my ownership of you.

            1. Rhodes aka Estovir, James, Em, Princess Trohar, MoFo, Thinkthrough, Publinca, Calvin&Hobbs etc, etc, has made these comment threads as boring as possible.

              Just as an experiment, it would be interesting for this blog to go a single week without the input of this ever-present troll. Who knows, real discussions might possibly develop in the absence of Rhodes’ grinding stupidity.

        1. Rhodes, the report on Russian interference from jan 2017 was in an “Intelligence Community Assessment”. It says so on the cover page. According to the “Intelligence Community” own web site:

          The U.S. Intelligence Community is composed of the following 17 organizations:

          Two independent agencies—the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI) and the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA);

          Eight Department of Defense elements—the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA), the National Security Agency (NSA), the National Geospatial- Intelligence Agency (NGA), the National Reconnaissance Office (NRO), and intelligence elements of the four DoD services; the Army, Navy, Marine Corps, and Air Force.

          Seven elements of other departments and agencies—the Department of Energy’s Office of Intelligence and Counter-Intelligence; the Department of Homeland Security’s Office of Intelligence and Analysis and U.S. Coast Guard Intelligence; the Department of Justice’s Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Drug Enforcement Agency’s Office of National Security Intelligence; the Department of State’s Bureau of Intelligence and Research; and the Department of the Treasury’s Office of Intelligence and Analysis”.

          Both the MuellerReport and the recently released GOP led Senate Intelligence Committee document Russian interference, Trump campaign collusion, and Russian hacking of the DNC emails.

          Details are available here:

  4. “Even Rudy Giuliani now puts the chances that he worked with a Russian agent at “50-50.”
    I will gladly accept that, but what are the chances that HRC won’t admit to losing the 2016 Presidential Election;
    That TWitter is 100% working with the DNC/HRC/Biden campaign and giving illegal contributions to the biden campaign by hiding the WP real news. That HRC emails were actually true; That the State Department now has all 33,000 ‘lost’ emails belonging to HRC;
    That”Rep. Adam Schiff simply dismissed the story as a Russian hit job” when he is the liar of the decade and a US Senator (imagine that);
    That the FBI has had these emails for more than 1 year!
    Now what?

  5. Joe Biden can’t handle tough questions. He loses control, gets angry, fires back attacking both reporters and voters!! and then Biden resorts to lying over and over.

    This is what happens when the press is in the bag for Democrats and runs cover for them. Instead of uncovering information in the public interest, the press is now fighting harder to *suppress information* that harms Joe Biden and his campaign. It’s completely outrageous what Joe Biden is getting away with — hiding at home, avoiding ANY serious questions or accountability, and flatout lying with zero correction or pushback from anyone in the media.

    Joe Biden is corrupt, a serial liar, a senile old man. Take a look at Joe Biden and tell me you see someone other than an *old* senile, weak man? He is not up to the job. He never was…and now? He’s definitely not capable of handling the rigors of the presidency.

    Plus, he has hardly spent time out on the trail working hard to *earn* a single vote. Sitting at home letting the corrupt, dishonest, biased liberal media do your campaigning for you is both lazy and disqualifying.

    1. What you meant to say was: Trump can’t handle tough questions. He loses control, gets angry, fires back attacking both reporters and voters!! and then Trump resorts to lying over and over.

      1. Not true. Observe how Trump handles hostile questions from the press. Then observe how Joe Biden handles what he considers to be a ‘hostile question’ from the press. There is a world of difference.

        1. Trump attacks the press all the time.
          Trump walks out of press conferences when he gets questions he doesn’t like, even when they’re totally legitimate.
          Here’s an example of him deflecting instead of answering a legitimate question and then walking out –

          1. Voter saying he was “taken aback and genuinely shocked” by how Joe Biden interacted with him….with Biden telling the voter to “go vote for someone else” as he grabbed at his jacket and patted his chest inapproprately. (There are many many more examples of Joe Biden’s bizarre and inappropriate behavior)

          2. A reporter asks Joe Biden about Ukraine and his son’s obvious conflct of interest. Watch how Biden loses control and refuses to respond the question – a legitimate question the press should be pressing Biden on over and over. Biden doesn’t think he should be asked tough questions and so he gets angry and lashes out, angrily, losing control. Every time. Okay, now go back to the basement for “debate prep” old Joe.

            1. Trump’s the one who has repeatedly called the press “the enemy of the people.”
              There is no worse attack than that.
              Biden never says that.
              There are also plenty of other videos of Trump refusing to answer question and being rude with the press, especially with women, and worst with women of color.

              1. Biden has a history of attacking interviewers and voters who ask questions he doesn’t like. “Come on, man!” It is obvious that Joe Biden should take a cognitive test and release the results to voters so he can put the question to rest. He won’t do it. We all know why he refuses to do it. Biden has big problems. It is apparent to anyone who is even slightly paying attention.

          3. Trump has held many press conferences and the press complained about that as well. The press is rude. They ask the same questions over and over again and don’t care about the response. They are looking for something small with which to criticize the President.

            He left after the press fought back at his prerogatives. He had another press conference soon after.

            Did Trump get hot under the collar? Yes. Was it for a good reason? Yes? Could he have handled it better? Possibly, but the questioners were rude.

            Does Biden answer such questions? Not recently. Does Biden select his questions and have pre prepared answers? Absolutely. Does Biden get hot under the collar? Yes. He doesn’t want to answer things having to do with evidence of his potential corruption or other important issues.. Should he? With regard to corruption that is what the 3 barks are all about. Good questions. Do you answer any of those three questions? No. Can you? No.

            1. Does Allan lie and make a lot of claims that he never backs up? Yes.
              Does Allan pretend to be able to read people’s minds and then attack them for what he assumes about them? Yes.

              1. You have the right to respond when the claim is made. You have a to respond to my facts with your facts. You don’t have a right to make up your own facts.

                Whatever word one wishes to use to explain what Twitter is doing the N.Y Post was unable to Tweet about their article that involved Hunter Biden’s computer. You are not a credible person and neither are any of your pretend anonymous friends..

      2. Not only do you lie and fail to provide any facts you try to stick words in others mouths so what the hey Commie we all know your a phony just like Pelosi

    2. Today, Joe Biden’s campaign has said the candidate ‘will not be seen again’ until Thurs night in Nashville at the next debate.

      Hidin’ Biden is now avoiding press questions and letting the corrupt press do his campaigning for him. It’s outrageous that he thinks he can get away with this approach. It’s even more outrageous that the press will help him do it!

      Here is Joe Biden’s campaign selling point in a nutshell: “You know me.”

      Hidin’ Biden is counting on coasting on the Obama years as his ticket to ride into the White House –without answering any questions, without being held accountable to voters, and without even leaving his basement.

      Just say NO to senile OLD Joe.

      1. If you Google Joe Biden’s campaign said “will not be seen again” and limit results to the last 24 hours, there’s a single hit, for the Gateway Pundit, which only says “CBS’s Ed O’Keefe on Face The Nation: “[Joe Biden] will not be seen again after today until Thursday night.””

        Ed O’Keefe doesn’t work for the Biden Campaign. The clip also shows them discussing that Biden is in NC today.

        You seem to be a liar.
        Say no to the most corrupt and dishonest president we’ve ever had, which is tRump.

        1. Gee, if only the MSM was as good at fact checking Joe Biden as you are!

          Ok, so the fact remains: Joe Biden will not be seen again, after today, until he shows up for the debate Thurs night. Correct?

      2. What Joe Biden fails to recognize is that the Obama policies were not popular with voters. What Joe Biden fails to recognize is that while Barack Obama himself had high popularity poll numbers, his policies were not popular and had very low approval numbers, way down in the 20s. What Joe Biden fails to recognize is that the unpopular, failed policies of the Obama/Biden regime not only hurt American workers and businesses, and weakened America, they were rejected by voters in 2016 when Donald J. Trump was elected.

        Voters do not want to go back to the failed, unpopular Obama/Biden regime policies.

        On Nov. 3 voters will re-elect Donald J. Trump!

        1. Voters clearly prefer Biden to Trump, just like voters clearly preferred Clinton to Trump, which is why she won the popular vote.

          The Electoral College doesn’t reflect the voters. We’ll find out in Nov. who the EC will elect.

          1. What is it they prefer about Biden? His low energy? His crap policies? His promise to raise your taxes? His corruption and lies? His senile old brain? Most sane voters do not want to see an old demented man anywhere near the Oval Office. Most sane voters do not want to watch China continue taking over the world. We know that China owns and controls Joe Biden and his family. Now figure out who smart voters are going to elect. Hint: It’s not Joe Biden.

  6. The real story is that for 4 years, the American people were fed the truth about Russian disinformation to influence our 2016. The truth that a candidate and his family were corrupt and profiting from illicit foreign money. That there was a QPQ leveraging US foreign aid to hide the corruption. That there were prostitutes. That all of this was being used by the foreign actors to gain access into the highest levels of our government.

    The whole truth however is different in significant ways. The actual evidence shows the very people that pushed this 4 year nightmare story were the very people doing these crimes. For this entire saga to play out the way it did required cooperation from the IC/FBI/DOJ/MSM/DNC/Democratic Party/Big Tech/Foreign governments and a large percentage of the American people demoralized beyond recovery and willfully ignorant of this swamp that operates as an enemy to our country.

  7. Gov. Whitmer on Meet The Press just now, “Ten days after a plot to kidnap, put me on trial and execute me, 10 days after that was uncovered, the president is at it again inspiring, incentivizing and inciting this kind of domestic terrorism. It is wrong. It’s got to end.”

    On CNN, Lara Trump told Jake Tapper that when Trump enjoys people chanting “lock her up” while he criticized Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, Trump “was just having fun” and it’s “light hearted.” That’s sick, but his base laps it up. Time & again, he demonstrates how easy it would be to get 30% or so of the American people to support a full-blown dictatorship, gleefully.

    1. I love it that the right wing can base their determination on what we “were not told“ when it comes to a Democrat but is joyfully happy to ignore even what we’re are told, know, can read and can hear and see about Trump. Turley, you have fallen very far.

      So when is Trump going to give up his DNA……

        1. Trump’s the one who has forced all sorts of people to sign NDAs, not Biden.
          Trump’s the one fighting a court order to give a DNA sample, not Biden.
          Trump’s the one who committed obstruction of justice over and over, not Biden.
          Trump’s the one who refused to answer a lot of Mueller’s questions and then lied on some he did answer, committing perjury, not Biden.
          Trump’s the one who surrounded himself with crooks who’ve been convicted of crimes or are awaiting trial: Cohen, Manafort, Gates, Papadopoulos, Stone, Broidy, Bannon, and on and on.

          1. I repeat for you: Says the person who thinks Trump Russia collusion was real and the Hunter Biden hard drive is fake.

                1. They’re all facts. Michael, let’s test whether you can admit just one of the facts I listed, which is that Trump is fighting a court order to give a DNA sample: https://lawandcrime.com/high-profile/obviously-required-to-provide-it-trump-given-deadlines-to-produce-dna-in-e-jean-carrolls-defamation-lawsuit/

                  If you can admit this fact, then I’ll give you another. If you cannot admit that fact, then it’s pointless to give you more.

                    1. When Trump makes that offer under penalty of perjury, I’m sure Biden will take him up on it.

                    2. Donald Trump can beat Joe Biden in a cognitive test. (Take the test, Joe!)

                      Trump can beat Biden in an endurance test out on the campaign trail. (Trump is working his ass off. Where’s Joe? Oh that’s right, in the basement again, prepping *all week* for the debate on Thurs).

                      But hey, Joe Biden could probably beat Donald Trump in a pushup contest. And Biden would probably beat Trump in the Mr. Congeniality, Good Old Fella contest.

                      But here’s the thing….I don’t want a pliable, agreeable, malleable — but ‘decent’ — *old* senile man in the Oval Office. I want a fighter with high energy working tirelessly on our behalf. And that is definitely NOT Joe Biden.

                      Go Trump!

                      Yes to 4 MORE YEARS!

          2. It’s easy to throw out platitudes and superficial statements. Please provide actual evidence to what you claim.
            Exactly which of Mueller’s questions did Trump refuse to answer? Bear in mind, Trump was found to have committed no crimes…BY Mueller and his squad. Also bear in mind, that it has been proven that the entire Russia collusion debacle was a hoax, a ruse, an actual conspiracy put in place by Hillary Clinton and Obama, Biden, and Comey had prior knowledge of that fact. Yet, an entire first term was wasted on a series of lies and false accusations, never mind millions of tax payer dollars.
            How exactly did Trump perjure himself? What specific questions and answers?
            The people you mention committing crimes, the majority of them are process crimes that never go anywhere, are never prosecuted. The others, do you live in some world that those surrounding Clinton and Biden are simply angels, sent from Heaven, pure in soul and spirit, completely honest and their integrity is above reproach?
            I know that there is absolutely nothing I can say that will convince you otherwise, it is clear that some people’s ideology is so strong, that even when provided with evidence and facts, that evidence and those facts are dismissed, because to accept them would destroy your ideology.
            Unfortunately, critical thinking and the ability to reason, to employ logic, is not a strong suit of many people. It’s easy to throw out some baseless, wild statement, takes a moment or two. Takes much longer to take that statement apart, to explain how it is not true, how it is misleading or an outright lie. It also requires effort and the desire for truth for someone on their own to investigate and come to the conclusion they are being had. I don’t expect you or people with your ideology to take the time, and that makes me frustrated and angry, but most of all makes me sad, for it is people who are so easily led who will be the downfall of this Republic.

            1. If you’re going to tell me “It’s easy to throw out platitudes and superficial statements. Please provide actual evidence to what you claim,” then you should be willing to abide by that too.

              Let’s do this one at a time. I’ll provide actual evidence for one of my claims, and then you provide actual evidence for one of your claims.

              You can see for yourself which questions Trump didn’t answer –
              https://apnews.com/article/98f22511be924ced895ce5c0bfedfe37

              Now your turn. Show that it has been proven that the entire Russia collusion debacle was a hoax, a ruse, an actual conspiracy put in place by Hillary Clinton and Obama, Biden, and Comey had prior knowledge of that fact.

              Then after you do that, I’ll provide actual evidence for another of my claims and you’ll provide evidence for another of your claims.

                1. The Associated Press is a credible source, and the link has copies of the questions and Trump’s responses, including the questions Trump didn’t answer.

                  If you reject the Associated Press as a credible source, then your judgment isn’t reliable.

          3. and you of course as usual can’t prove a single word of gthe garbage you just spewed. ho hum for boring leftists.

      1. Ah yes the troll has switched names again but still no facts and no sources just spewed leftist garbage.

  8. This is not the pee tape. Regardless of all the what-abouts out there. One email recipient has already corroborated that email. More to come.

      1. Nor really. When I see the name I expect failed propaganda and it never fails to be failed propaganda

  9. BIDENS GOT CAUGHT. Hunter’s Lawyer admits its hunter’s laptop by a Email/text to shop owner asking about it. Shop owner followed the law, after 90 days its considered abandoned. Biden camp not denying the items, other than saying its a smear. Yes, October surprise but its usually the press/Dem’s launching an October surprise but it was the Republicans. The Social Media Companies went into immediate defense of Biden, banning, locking and etc. Sounds like Panic. Twitter after first trying to ban, block, lock gave up. Dorsey got caught and now he and Twitter have issues and an invitation to the Senate along with his fellow tech companies.

    Biden should reign from the election. Appears, each day more dirt is coming out and they are not denying it.

    1. Back up your claim that Hunter’s Lawyer admits its hunter’s laptop by a Email/text to shop owner asking about it. Let’s see what the lawyer said. No reason to trust you about it.

  10. Turley: Excellent job (and very clever explanation) of focusing on the fundamental issue: Are the laptop and emails Hunter Biden’s? And you’re right. The nondenials are very incriminating.

      1. Deny what? That the machines were not his? Of course they were his kidz. Did he deny conversing with Hunter on the subject material.No he did not He denied something entirely different. AND the doofus propagandists took over and failed.

        1. Biden doesn’t have to “deny” because he doesn’t answer any questions!! Oh, but except for q’s like: “what flavor ice cream did you get Mr. Vice President?”

          What a disgusting joke the Fake News Media is. All of them are in the tank for Dems. So corrupt they all stink to high heaven.

  11. Jonathan, ironic that would use the number 3. As in “3 barks”.

    Hunter Biden dropped off 3 laptops, not 1 laptop, with “liquid damage”, to a repair shop in Wilmington, and never returned to pick them up despite the owner of the repair shop making multiple attempts to contact Biden in order to have him pick them up.

    “Full Story Behind Hunter’s Laptop Debunks Latest Russia Conspiracy Theory”

    https://www.zerohedge.com/political/full-story-behind-hunters-laptops-debunks-latest-russia-conspiracy-theory

    “This story is very simple–Hunter Biden dropped off three computers with liquid damage at a repair shop in Wilmington, Delaware on April 12, 2019. The owner, John Mac Issac, examined the three and determined that one was beyond recovery, one was okay and the data on the harddrive of the third could be recovered. Hunter signed the service ticket and John Paul Mac Issac repaired the hard drive and down loaded the data. During this process he saw some disturbing images and a number of emails that concerned Ukraine, Burisma, China and other issues. With the work completed, Mr. Mac Issac prepared an invoice, sent it to Hunter Biden and notified him that the computer was ready to be retrieved. Hunter did not respond. In the ensuing four months (May, June, July and August), Mr. Mac Issac made repeated efforts to contact Hunter Biden. Biden never answered and never responded. More importantly, Biden stiffed John Paul Mac Issac–i.e., he did not pay the bill.”

    Hunter Biden is a cocaine addict, And like most cokeheads he also has an alcohol problem as well. They go together like cereal and milk.

    Add to that the fact that he’s a malignant narcissist with lots of money and influence thanks to “Pop”, and you have a person who is thoroughly convinced that he is bulletproof.

    As I have witnessed many times, lots of money, combined with a coke problem, is a very bad combination.

    There were no Russians involved. But there was an organized crime network known as the FBI, that was involved.

    1. What kind of nut thinks that you can get 3 laptops repaired for $85?
      Why would you believe that it’s Biden when the shop owner can’t confirm that it’s Biden?
      Let’s see the phone # that the owner of the repair shop used when he claims to have made multiple attempts to contact Biden.
      Ask the shop owner why he ever looked at any info on the computer. If he does that, no one should ever use his store again.

      1. “Why would you believe that it’s Biden when the shop owner can’t confirm that it’s Biden?”

        The shop owner has confirmed that it was Hunter Biden who dropped off the 3 laptops owned by Hunter Biden.

        “What kind of nut thinks that you can get 3 laptops repaired for $85?”

        I have no idea where you got $85.00 from. But the invoice was sent after the shop owner finished the job, and the laptops were never picked up, nor was the invoice ever paid by Biden.

        “Ask the shop owner why he ever looked at any info on the computer.”

        It is impossible to not look at “any info” (aka/ data) on 3 computers that you are attempting to repair.

        I.E.- “The owner, John Mac Issac, examined the three and determined that one was beyond recovery, one was okay and the data on the hard drive of the third could be recovered”.

        Cocaine is a helluva drug.

        1. No, the shop owner didn’t confirm that it was Hunter Biden who dropped off the 3 laptops. He’s legally blind, and he said “because of my visual impairments I’m not going to lie. I can’t be 100% sure” it was Hunter Biden.

          Of course it’s possible to repair computers without looking at the emails and video on them. It’s STANDARD to repair computers without reading private info.

                1. Then complain to Britain, because that’s Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson Becker in the original photo, not Biden.

        1. Oky said Footage Of Hunter Biden Raping And Torturing Little Girls
          who knows what Giuliani put on the hard drive

      1. So says the ph’in pedo/torturing supporting nut case Anon.

        It isn’t like Jones is plowing new ground here, we all have known some time about the large DC/Wallst nest of Satin worshipping pedos like the cases against Hillary & the Podesta brothers. Just how is it these same names keep showing up?

        And the video tapes from the whistle blowers turned over to certain Real Media after they saw this lastest pedo crap getting covered up, you think just maybe the 3 letter agenies anit in on it?

        I guess it could be the FBI/DOJ were just to busy the last few years to look into what the Bidens were doing?

          1. Find yourself a new Script Writer Anon as no one is falling for your types BS conspiracy theory crap, what’s been 58 years since Johnson/groups inside US intel whacked JFK?

            And building 7, please tell us more of the govt’s offical yawn. I like cartoons on Sunday morning as mush as Saturday morning.

            Jet fuel burns how hot again? LOL;) Ya right, let me guess it was cheap Chinese steal….

            1. Gov. Connolly and Pres. Kennedy were shot by Lee Harvey Oswald. Our single best guess is that the target was Gov. Connolly, the quondam Secretary of the Navy whom Oswald blamed for his dishonorable discharge from the Marine Corps.

              1. Art Decox3,

                I strongly suggest to anyone if they get a chance to stop by Dealey Plaza in Dallas.

                If anyone has been hunting it’s clear as day the kill shot came from the front.

                When I was there in the early 70’s the govt hadn’t pull down the Oak tree yet.

                Are you starting to notice the repeat patterns from those flase flags since way before JFK & still today?

                Ck: Noble Cause

                1. If anyone has been hunting it’s clear as day the kill shot came from the front.

                  The 1st shot hit the pavement and dislodged a piece of macadam, which hit a man named James Tague in the face, causing a minor wound. Mr. Tague was located in front of the limousine, off to its left.

                  The 2d shot hit the president and the governor. The trajectory of the president’s wounds, back-to-front, was downward. The trajectory of the governor’s, back-to-front, was downward. The only way these shots (this shot, truly) come from the front is if the assailant is a little gnome at Nellie Connolly’s feet.

                  The residue of the third shot was a bullet fragment in the limousine’s windshield. That aside, gunshots have front spatter (high volume) and back spatter (low volume). The back spatter was a small amount of liquid which hit a motorcycle cop riding to the left and in the rear of the limousine. The front spatter was a gruesome quantum of matter (including a thumb size slice of the president’s brain) which landed on the Connollys. Mrs. Connolly offered oral testimony to this in front of the House Select Committee on Assassinations while her husband wept beside her.

                  Stop pretending you know something. Cyril Wecht has been slicing up the Warren Commission for decades and (unlike others) he actually has an informed opinion as a forensic pathologist. He admits all three shots came from the rear.

                  1. You’re going to follow the govt’s conspiracy theory, others & I are not & that’s ok.

                    There’s plenty of points of interest, but I haven’t focused on them all in a long while.

                    A few of the ? are:

                    The leafs were still hanging on the oak tree that blocked Osward’s view/ shots.

                    That wasn’t chopped liver Jacko was chasing after on the trunk’s deck lid. Looked like brains to me, evidence of a head shot from the front.

                    That Limo was evidence from a crime scene, why the rush to have it completely scrubbed? Destruction of evidence

                    The front window of the Limo had a bullet hole through it, why the rush to throw it away??? More destruction of evidence. Nice interview/video out there from the supervisor that worked on the special job of replacing that custom windshield.

                    The part of a bullet left in Gov Connolly’s, I think, his arm, that was odd. evidence

                    Prez Trump promised to release all govt records related to JFK’s death. After some more foot dragging it’s claimed most docs were released. I didn’t read them all but one was supposed to have been from the autopsy report that showed that the dead JFK, that had most of his brains blown out, that a doctor cut the throat like they would for a tracheotomy on top of where there was already a bullet entrance wound.

                    More….

                    Anyway enough for now of chasing that ole rabbit hole.

              2. I’ll trust Dr. Nick Begich when he says his dad, Fm Congressmen that set on the Warren Commission was pushing to have the investigation reopened before his & soon to be Speaker of the House, Hale Boggs’ plane crashed in Alaska.

                Maybe someone has put together an outline/flow chart of all the JFK hit so others can understand it better.

                There are way more cases out there then anyone one person can keep. I’m already kvetching why is it with all the IT people I know that I can’t have my own AT aglo that catalogs/organizes all the info I’m looking for. After all Google/Apple/ig tech all have my info so why don’t I have it?

                https://banned.video/watch?id=5f8a23a56c804a13cfea1b98

                BTW: Lot of very nice Art Deco buildings in Tulsa & likely in OKC.

                1. I’ll trust Dr. Nick Begich when he says his dad, Fm Congressmen that set on the Warren Commission was pushing to have the investigation reopened before his & soon to be Speaker of the House, Hale Boggs’ plane crashed in Alaska.

                  His father never sat on the Warren Commission. His father was a school administrator outside of Anchorage at the time. Get some mundane facts straight, and maybe people will listen once in a while.

                  1. That was easy enough to Ck, it was Hale Boggs that sat on the Warren Commission.

                    I gave you the link so you could ck yourself what Begich’s comments were

  12. I knew how true it was when both Twitter and FB suppressed the NYPost original article. Now we have a Streisand effect with more people interested in the emails. Guiliani has dropped a few emails and a few pictures from the laptop. Reportedly, Hunter Biden’s attorneys have tried to get the laptop back, however the FBI has it. They have had it since Nov/Dec 2019. Reports are their top child porn person is on it now.

    A lot of dogs have been growling, but not barking.

  13. Debunking, even on Fox-
    https://twitter.com/EthanBearman/status/1317171089361924101

    Check out the metadata of the PDF’s released by the Post. The PDFs of the Biden emails were created in Central Europe on 10/10/19, 6 mos after the laptop was dropped off in Delaware. Do you know who was in Central Europe on 10/10/19? Firtash. In Vienna. The place Parnas & Fruman were off to when they were nabbed & indicted. On 10/10/19. See, hunter Biden flew from LA to Vienna, wrote the emails, hopped in a time machine, got drunk, and then flew to Delaware real quick to drop off his laptops to a friend of Giuliani’s (weird coincidence!) then flew back to LA and forgot about them. This could all be a coincidence, though, and metadata can be altered.

    Fancy Bear hacked Burisma and got some actual emails. Then Giuliani fabricated something incriminating emails and released them at the same time to try and seem credible. This is an extremely common active measure. Russia did that to France in 2017. Hacked authentic emails alongside fabricated ones.

    Someone could have made a disk image copy via Mac disk utility of his external hard drive used for time machine backups at some point. In most cases, unlike the MacBook SSD’s they aren’t encrypted disks. After the creation of this image, anyone with experience such as Vladimir’s teams can inject fake email messages that never existed into the stores of macOS mail. So then this modified disk image is restored to another Mac using migration assistant like the Post probably did.

    1. Who cares about the circuitous route?! If they arent Hunter Bidens, ir if they are fabricated, let Biden “bark” up and say so. Anon, you are just obfuscating here. The point is, the Bidens have NOT denied any of this. Which leaves little alternative but to assume they are indeed his.

      1. Except that you’re wrong that there has been no denial. I already gave you a link to one. Don’t expect the Biden campaign to spend a lot of energy denying it, when there are more important things for Biden to focus on right now. Why do you think Giuliani gave this to the Post NOW, when the store owner said the store had them for a year and a half and he gave them to Giuliani quite a while ago. Giuliani wants it to be a story to decrease the likelihood of Biden being elected.

  14. If the computer is his and the emails are his and the images are his, why is the MSM not following the story? Are they hoping it just goes away?

  15. Professor Turley’s “three barks” are curiosities, but the Orwellian fear that chills is the actions of Twitter and Facebook to block freedom of speech and that the FBI sat on the computer for over a year while the President was being impeached by the Democratic House. The FBi is not investigating the truth surrounding the emails, but whether Russia was involved.

    1. Why would you assume that the FBI didn’t investigate? They probably investigated and concluded that there is no there there.

      1. Because this story has been out for almost a week now and the FBI, just like the Biden campaign……crickets.

        1. The FBI doesn’t announce their investigations unless they bring charges. You’re hearing crickets from them because their investigation hasn’t led to charges.

          1. How do you know that? They don’t discuss it with those hey are investigating which is focused on the left… like you.

      2. “Why would you assume that the FBI didn’t investigate?”

        https://www.zerohedge.com/political/full-story-behind-hunters-laptops-debunks-latest-russia-conspiracy-theory

        “Two weeks later, the intrepid agents called and asked to come and image the hard drive. John Paul agreed but, instead of taking the hard drive or imaging the drive, they gave him a subpoena. It was part of a grand jury proceeding but neither agent said anything about the purpose of the grand jury. John Paul complied with the subpoena and turned over the hard drive and the computer.”

        Twitter fvcked up big time by blocking the NYPost story. Ask Barbra Streisand how that works.

    2. But they are now which is why they said on being called in by Congress, “We never comment on ‘ongoing’ investigations. That would be Bidens, Clinton etc.

  16. Mr Turley, I would dispute the following claim and ask you to refrain from repeating this in future. “The Clinton emails were hacked by the Russians but they were also true.”
    As things have evolved, it’s apparent that the Clinton emails were an “inside job”. Just like the law of gravity, the speed of download / upload – experts realize it couldn’t be a foreign hack. It was likely downloaded to a memory device. Remember this “hack” is a product of the highly compromised “crowdstrike” which were supplying information to FBI on their analysis – breaking proper FBI protocol.

    1. My thoughts, too. Who are these phantom Russians? If hacking were involved, it’d much more likely be China at this stage. By now I take the utterance of ‘Russians’ as proof positive that someone or someones are covering their butts. There were no Russians with Hillary, Trump, or this, at least not in this manner. It’s ridiculous.

      I guess the phantom Russians are in league with the phantom white supremacy groups and the phantom religious oppressors of women to tear this country down. Antifa is just doing what’s right. /s

      As a small caveat, I do find the sticker a bit odd. However, as a former computer tech, it’s true: for that type of repair you do have to at least mount the drive to test the repair, so seeing *some* of what’s on it is unavoidable.

      1. James– I don’t think the Democrats will accuse China of much of anything. It is beginning to look as if too many of them have been compromised by China.

      2. Hacking another country is not illegal in Russia. Those charged were never in the USA
        Collusion isn’t a crime
        Most of it was made up by the biased media and the Left Stream phony press because they wanted to stir up stuff on one candidate but now the chickens came home to roost and it’s their own that’s being investigated in an ‘ongoing’ fashion.

    2. But they are now which is why they said on being called in by Congress, “We never comment on ‘ongoing’ investigations. That would be Bidens, Clinton etc. The investigations came about from current AG office.

    3. Except for the ones that paid off the Clintons and were paid off by the Clintons and denying that is as stupid as being a Socialist claiming your a Democrat or worse both when they are diametrcally opposed and when Mr. Putin has already stated the Democrats of the USA are much the same as the Communists of the USSR.

    4. Norhing is apparent except members of the stupid party who claim to have inside information and if that is true They Be Coming After You Too Blue.

  17. At least I thought this before reading it from Turley. I haven’t read any articles, and only a couple emails. This quickly looked like one of the stories where the reflection in the stream is truer than the actual shiny object.
