The New York Post’s October 2020 scoop, which exposed the presidential hopeful’s planned business deal with a CCP-connected firm set up to benefit his family, should have cost Joe Biden the election. These emails provided further evidence of the Biden family’s long history of influence peddling.
However, a scandal is only considered a controversy if Big Tech, the legacy media, and a panel of former intelligence community officials decide it is one. The Biden campaign fired back: according to the New York Post, there was nothing on his “actual schedules” about a 2015 meeting with a Ukrainian energy executive.
Collusion between Big Tech, legacy media figures, and establishment veterans of the intelligence community who were committed to a Biden victory in order to discredit and/or silence the story can only be characterized as collusion. The article was actively censored on social media platforms “to limit the spread of potentially false information” even while Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey admitted before Congress that he had no evidence the story was untrue.
On Thursday, seventeen months after the affair began, The New York Times quietly acknowledged that the laptop and the emails it contains are genuine. The acknowledgment was tucked away in a 24th paragraph of a story about “Hunter Biden Paid Tax Bill, but Federal Investigation Continues.”
The paragraph reads:
“People familiar with the inquiry said prosecutors had looked at emails between Mr. Biden, Mr. Archer, and other people regarding Burisma and foreign business activity, according to The New York Times’ reporting of it. People familiar with the investigation said that a laptop left in a Delaware repair shop by Mr. Biden was leaked to The New York Times as part of this cache of documents.”
Rep. Darrell Issa of California, a Republican from California, believes that the collusion between Big Tech, legacy media, and the Democrat industrial complex should cast suspicion on this story as well as the efforts to hide it. And he’s urged for Congress to investigate the issue. Of course, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi would rather poke needles in her eyes than opening an inquiry; nevertheless, the chances of Republicans gaining control of Congress in January are good, making this a potentially important first action for them.
