’10 For The Big Guy’: Politico Confirms Hunter Biden’s China, Ukraine Emails Are Legit

Several emails from Hunter Biden’s laptop have been confirmed as legitimate, according to Politico, citing claims in a new book, along with emails released by a Swedish government agency.

Ben Schreckinger’s “The Bidens: Inside the First Family’s Fifty-Year Rise to Power,” out today, finds evidence that some of the purported HUNTER BIDEN laptop material is genuine, including two emails at the center of last October’s controversy.

A person who had independent access to Hunter Biden’s emails confirmed he did receive a 2015 email from a Ukrainian businessman thanking him for the chance to meet Joe Biden. The same goes for a 2017 email in which a proposed equity breakdown of a venture with Chinese energy executives includes the line, “10 held by H for the big guy?” (This person recalled seeing both emails, but was not in a position to compare the leaked emails word-for-word to the originals.)

Recall that news of Hunter Biden’s laptop was broken by the New York Post shortly before the 2020 election – resulting in a multi-week Twitter ban on the outlet, and a baseless claim spread throughout the MSM and by notable Democrats including Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) and Sen. Chris Murphy (D-CT) that it was Russian disinformation.

Murphy notably received nearly 70,000 ‘likes’ for his tweet calling it “likely Russian propaganda” – claiming he’d “seen the intel.”

Joe Biden – and all of us – SHOULD be furious that media outlets are spreading what is very likely Russian propaganda.

1/ I’ve seen the intel. The mainstreaming of misinformation is Russia’s 2020 goal. Here’s what we know, and why we can’t take it lying down.

On CNN, Intelligence Committee chair Adam Schiff says New York Post Hunter Biden story ‘comes from the Kremlin.’ Anchor seems to agree. Would be more persuasive if they provided evidence that 1) story is false, and 2) it ‘comes from the Kremlin.’ pic.twitter.com/JBILBs3YT3

NPR – funded by taxpayers – refused to cover the story.

It’s time to defund @NPR. This is appalling. #DefundNPR https://t.co/wFbY5lGGTG

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.

When the manufactured Ukraine crisis surfaced in August 2019, John Paul realized he was sitting on radioactive material that might be relevant to the investigation. After conferring with his father, Mac and John Paul decided that Mac would take the information to the FBI office in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Mac walked into the Albuquerque FBI office and spoke with an agent who refused to give his name. Mac explained the material he had, but was rebuffed by the FBI. He was told basically, get lost. This was mid-September 2019.

Two months passed and then, out of the blue, the FBI contacted John Paul Mac Issac. Two FBI agents from the Wilmington FBI office–Joshua Williams and Mike Dzielak–came to John Paul’s business. He offered immediately to give them the hard drive, no strings attached. Agents Williams and Dzielak declined to take the device.

The laptop – while allegedly containing inappropriate photographs of underage girls – revealed that President Biden lied when he said that he had no knowledge of Hunter’s business dealings – and was in fact involved with them.

In the final months of the heated 2020 presidential race, The Post revealed a trove of emails from Hunter Biden’s laptop that raised questions about his then-candidate father’s ties to his son’s foreign business ventures, including Burisma, a Ukrainian natural gas company linked to corruption.

The emails revealed that the younger Biden introduced a top Burisma executive to his father, then vice president, less than a year before the elder Biden admittedly pressured Ukrainian officials into firing a prosecutor who was investigating the company.

The never-before-revealed meeting is mentioned in a message of appreciation that Vadym Pozharskyi, a Burisma board adviser, sent Hunter on April 17, 2015. –New York Post

The laptop, which was protected by the password “Hunter02” according to the Daily Mail, was considered a national security nightmare.

And according to Rudy Giuliani, there were disturbing, underage photographs of young girls found on Hunter’s laptop which were turned over to police in New Castle County, Delaware. The laptop also contained videos of Hunter smoking crack and engaging in sex acts with an unidentified woman.

Unpacking this monumental election meddling is journalist Glenn Greenwald:

I have a copy of Schreckinger’s important book and will write about it shortly. 2 points:

1) Kudos to him, as a young journalist, for reporting facts most in the corporate media don’t want to hear.

2) Big Tech/Dem censorship of this story before the election was a grave assault

One last reminder: @TheIntercept — founded in 2014, before the current editors arrived, to be *adversarial* to CIA/security state — used an ex-NYT reporter to mindlessly endorse the CIA lie that the Hunter docs were “Russian disinformation” out of desperation to help Biden win. pic.twitter.com/sDJuuOiMjW

It’s so easy to recognize and denounce the censorship, repression and propaganda in distant countries we’re taught from childhood to hate (Russia). It’s more more difficult — and more important — to recognize it in our own. Pre-election censorship of this story was a disgrace.

— Glenn Greenwald (@ggreenwald) September 21, 2021

Amazingly, Facebook and @andymstone — having interfered in our elections by suppressing a story that the CIA, the Intercept and other media outlets lied about by claiming it was Russia disinformation — now refuses to answer questions about the outcome of that “fact-check.” 👇 pic.twitter.com/9Zl6s1qJiv

One interesting aspect of the fact that it’s a POLITICO reporter with a new book confirming the authenticity of the Hunter docs:

It was POLITICO — through the co-Queen of Russiagate frauds, @NatashaBertrand — who first used CIA to dismiss the docs as “Russian disinformation.” pic.twitter.com/eL17sAayHJ

— Glenn Greenwald (@ggreenwald) September 21, 2021

2) CNN’s @camanpour — the week before the election — explicitly refusing to discuss the reporting on the Biden family by claiming that it’s not the media’s job to determine if the documents are or are not authentic. Watch this shit:pic.twitter.com/mkI4Jtd4SN
