QUESTION: You have been silent on the Hunter Biden story. Would you care to comment sometime?
ANSWER: I try to be cautious because this is the most corrupt election in history. I was skeptical because about two months before there was sent to me a 64-page document that was claiming a connection of Joe Biden to the Communist Party in China. It was supposed to be assembled by a Swiss intelligence firm by the name of Typhoon Investigations. I have very good contacts in Switzerland and nobody could confirm that this was even a real entity. When that answer came back, I refused to publish anything on that subject.
What you must understand is the way they play the game. The laptop of Hunter’s appears to be real. There was an actual live computer store that I was able to verify. This raised even more questions in my mind because I intimately know the dirty tricks they pull. Assuming that there were kickbacks and a fear that they may come out, the best way to discredit them is to deliberately create a fake document that can easily be shown is fake. That then allows you to attribute everything else on that subject is fake. This is precisely what NBC news is now doing.
The reason why I see this as a deliberate disinformation scam to protect Biden is that the Swiss scam was too easy to prove was fake. You do not create fake people and fake companies which are easily traced to verify unless you WANTED them to be proven to be fake and used to discredit the real sources.
SECONDLY, the reason I do believe that the laptop of Hunter Biden contains the real stuff is simply because that is far too difficult to fake, but this is the standard MO of how the corruption works in Washington. Biden was doing the very same thing Hillary was doing but she erased all her emails and set up a foundation to funnel all the money into. Biden was small potatoes in comparison to the sophistication of Hillary. She also did not have the mature family Biden had but still funneled business deals through her brother – i.e. mining contract in Hati.
Consequently, funneling money through your family is standard in Washington and by no means unique. You only need to report your spouse – not children or brothers, sisters, and parents.
The fake document I was sent 2 months before I was not about to publish because I could not verify anything related to it. I know there were sites that ran with it. But that is not a wise move in today’s polarized political world. I believe the suppression of all the Hunter documents is deliberately being carried out claiming the first documents were fake without identifying that they were a plant and not the same quality or source.
