The FBI is investigating the damning Hunter Biden emails — not for the myriad of crimes they expose but to see if they are a “Russian disinformation operation.”

The Associated Press and NBC News cited sources who said the bureau is investigating whether foreign intelligence operatives had a hand in releasing the emails, which Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani provided to The New York Post last week.

Giuliani’s handling of the emails has prompted allegations that Russia or another foreign government may have been involved in obtaining or releasing the documents. Giuliani’s critics have noted that he has met several times with Arkady Derkach, a Ukrainian lawmaker who the U.S. sanctioned in August because of his ties to Russia.

Derkach released audio files earlier this year from 2016 of then-Vice President Joe Biden speaking with former Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko.

Giuliani has denied any foreign involvement in procuring the emails. The Biden campaign and Hunter Biden’s lawyer have also not disputed claims made by a Delaware computer store owner who says he provided the emails to Giuliani.

The shop owner, who has been identified as John Paul Mac Isaac, told The Post that a person he believes to be Hunter Biden dropped off a laptop for repair in April 2019.

Isaac told reporters that after the customer failed to come back for the computer, he looked at its contents and became disturbed by images and documents stored on the device.

Isaac said that an intermediary contacted the FBI on his behalf about the computer, and that he made a copy of the hard drive before investigators seized it through subpoena in December 2019.

WATCH:

Isaac said he recently provided Giuliani’s lawyer, Robert Costello, with a copy of the hard drive. Giuliani provided documents from the computer to The Post late last week.

The newspaper has run a series of stories on the emails, which purport to show Biden discussing his work for Ukrainian energy company Burisma Holdings and with Chinese business partners.

Perhaps the most eye-catching email released so far was from a Burisma executive who thanked Hunter Biden in April 2015 for “the opportunity” to meet his father. Joe Biden had previously denied discussing business with his son.

Lying Joe Biden. Reminds me of Clinton. "I did not have sex with that woman." Joe, "I did not ask my son about his work."

Is the FBI kidding me. WTH "A Russian connection to influence the race?". The only connection that can influence this race is Joe Biden and his Son. But like always when it's a Democrap they get a pass because they are made of Teflon and nothing sticks to them. OMG give me a frigging break. Christopher Wray needs to go. He is a useless as paper money. GEE WIZZZ!!!! This just pisses me off. If this was a Republican they'd be tar and feathered by now. Look what they have said and have done to President Trump's kids and the FLOTUS. Pissed off big time. Russia no matter what it is it always goes back to Russia. Which Mueller found on COLLUSION and Bill Barr and Rod Rosenstein found no corruption. This dog don't hunt. :-(

If not for our President, we would never know just how corrupt the Democrats, and indeed some others, are and how real and dangerous the Deep State is. Trump has opened our eyes and thats why he is so hated (feared) by the corrupt. Vote RED.

How about we handle this whole 'Hunter situation the same as any other political situation... First, determine if the information found (the hard drives content and it's implications) is true, and THEN, secondly, investigate where the leak of its existence came from. That's how the (totally unfounded and manufactured) allegations against Trump were handled! TRUMP 2020!

The article says investigators picked up the hard drives in Dec 2019 which was 9 months ago with a subpoena. What Investigators, FBI, Giuliano’s people? Who ever picked them up it’s taken 9 months to authenticate the hard drives and why are we only hearing about it now? This evidence should have been cleared months ago instead of just before the election and Biden and his cohort son would’ve been on their way to prison and put the liberals in a real dither!

Maybe we should get the Russian operatives to tell us how corrupt the FBI is? We Americans aren’t stupid the FBI is in the pockets of Soro’s and has been for a long time. They overlooked the Florida school shooting, the Las Vegas shooting, the killing by terrorists in California, etc. our biggest problem is our own government because it’s full of swamp creatures and none of them are loyal to us. Hell the pentagon is full of Unloyal people and they give our military commands. Time for a civil war and we the people will clean the swamp.

I again after the 2016 election I voted ALL RED, and again this year I will be doing the same. I'm an Independent voter and the dumocraps are the party of LYING and CRIMINAL activities all the time. How do you become a millionaire making a $175,000 a year? Pelosi and the communist in her party has to be voted out of this Country and if their not, you will suffer the results of their liberal bankrupted idea's. When they say vote as if you life counted on it, believe them because it really does.

But the FBI didn't care to investigate the Steele dossier. Why? Because they already knew it was fake?

Can you imagine what the deep-state would be doing right now if one of Donald Trump's kids had been caught this way? They would be sitting in a jail cell, without bail, waiting for the kangaroo court to order their public execution.

If the Biden's think that these e-mails/evidence is false....then sue the post .....But like Bannon said Rupert will counter sue and the discovery phase will hang the Biden's and they know it so I doubt they will bring up legal action....they will let Facebook/Twitter/ Lame stream media cover for them.

The Biden family just is not very smart. To leave a computer with such damning information on it and just forget about it is the height of stupidity. They can't even get corruption done right. We don't need such imbeciles in our government, let alone in the office of the president.

What do you expect under Greasy, Slimy FBI Dir Chris "Wary"-Wray, (Comey's cover up guy) who is guilty of obstruction of justice, destruction of evidence and felony perjury and RICO crimes. Chris Wray needs to be fired, prosecuted and disbarred, along with the rest of Comey's lawyer thugs, including McCabe, Strzok, Weissman, and many others who were part of the RICO Conspiracy to Commit a Coup de Etat aginst a sitting U.S. President. Chris Wray is a cheap thug with a law degree who has violated so many laws it is impossible to count. Chris Wray is a communist in sheep's clothing and needs to be fired and arrested after the election.

Nikki Haley Breaks with Trump: ‘We Shouldn’t Have Followed Him, and We Shouldn’t Have Listened to Him’

Published

on

Nikki Haley, former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, believes that former President Donald Trump “let us down.”

Haley’s remarks come as the former president’s legal team prepares to present its defense of Trump during his second impeachment trial in the Senate.

In a Politico interview published Friday, Haley, former South Carolina governor, said that “we shouldn’t have followed” Trump.

“We need to acknowledge he let us down,” she said in an extensive profile. “He went down a path he shouldn’t have, and we shouldn’t have followed him, and we shouldn’t have listened to him. And we can’t let that ever happen again.”

She also told the outlet that she has not spoken to Trump since the Jan. 6 riots at the U.S. Capitol, and takes issue with his remarks condemning former Vice President Mike Pence’s refusal to reject the Electoral College vote.

“When I tell you I’m angry, it’s an understatement,” she expressed. “I am so disappointed in the fact that [despite] the loyalty and friendship he had with Mike Pence, that he would do that to him. Like, I’m disgusted by it.”

The former ambassador, who many people are speculating may run for the White House in 2024, also added that Trump will never accept the results of the 2020 presidential election.

“There’s nothing that you’re ever going to do that’s going to make him feel like he legitimately lost the election,” she explained. “He’s got a big bully pulpit. He should be responsible with it.”

Haley also warned that many people still love the former president and will not stop supporting him just because he is out of office.

“I know how much people love Donald Trump,” she admitted. “I know it. I feel it. Whether it’s an RNC room or social media or talking to donors, I can tell you that the love they have for him is still very strong. That’s not going to just fall to the wayside. Nor do I think the Republican Party is going to go back to the way it was before Donald Trump. I don’t think it should.”

Haley added that people, instead, should “take the good that he built, leave the bad that he did, and get back to a place where we can be a good, valuable, effective party.”

“[I]t’s bigger than the party,” she insisted. “I hope our country can come together and figure out how we pull this back.”

Referring to Haley’s possible 2024 ambitions, Politico’s Tim Alberta wrote, “Since last fall, I’ve spent nearly six hours talking with Haley on-the-record. I’ve also spoken with nearly 70 people who know her: friends, associates, donors, staffers, former colleagues. From those conversations, two things are clear. First, Nikki Haley is going to run for president in 2024. Second, she doesn’t know which Nikki Haley will be on the ballot.”

Haley also said that she didn’t believe Trump had a chance of winning in a 2024 election scenario.

“I don’t think he can,” she admitted. “He’s fallen so far.”

“I think his business is suffering at this point,” she added. “I think he’s lost any sort of political viability he was going to have. I think he’s lost his social media, which meant the world to him. I mean, I think he’s lost the things that really could have kept him moving.”

The Democrats demonized President Trump for using the word ‘fight’. Trump’s attorneys responded today with a collage of clips from each of the Democrats in the room using the word ‘fight’.

This portion of today’s events on Capitol Hill was excellent. The Democrats claim that because President Trump used the word ‘fight’ in his speech on January 6th in Washington D.C. However, what every Democrat in that room forgot was that they too had used the word previously in political speech.

The montage went on for 13 minutes. (The video montage starts at 7:10 timeframe.)

WATCH: Trump Attorneys Destroy House Managers on Lying to American Public and Using Manipulated Tweet as Evidence

Published

on

President Trump’s defense team took the floor of the US Senate on Friday in defense of President Trump in the Senate impeachment trial.

Trump Attorney David Schoen absolutely destroyed the House Managers when he took to the floor of the US Senate.

At one point Schoen played video of the Democrat lawmakers lying about a Trump tweet.

House Impeachment Manager Eric Swalwell gave a riveting performance on Wednesday reading off Trump’s tweets with emotional appeal.

During this theatrical performance, Swalwell read off a Trump retweet by Jennifer Lynn Lawrence.

But there was one problem with the tweet. It was photoshopped.

Jennifer Lynn Lawrence has never been verified by Twitter. Democrats faked that to make it look more important.

On Friday Trump Attorney David Schoen destroyed Democrats for lying about this to the American public.

White House Suspends Deputy Press Secretary For Allegedly Sexually Harassing, Threatening Reporter

Published

on

The White House announced on Friday that it was suspending Deputy Press Secretary TJ Ducklo after a report surfaced alleging that he sexually harassed and threatened a female reporter who was getting ready to publish a report revealing that he was dating a reporter who had previously been tasked with covering Democrat Joe Biden.

“The confrontation began on Inauguration Day, January 20, after [Politico reporter Tara] Palmeri, a coauthor of Politico’s Playbook, contacted [Axios political reporter Alexi] McCammond for comment while one of her male colleagues left a message for Ducklo,” Vanity Fair reported. “Ducklo subsequently called a Playbook editor to object to the story, but was told to call the Playbook reporters with his concerns. But instead of calling the male reporter who initially contacted him, Ducklo tried to intimidate Palmeri by phone in an effort to kill the story. ‘I will destroy you,’ Ducklo told her, according to the sources, adding that he would ruin her reputation if she published it.”

“During the off-the-record call, Ducklo made derogatory and misogynistic comments, accusing Palmeri of only reporting on his relationship—which, due to the ethics questions that factor into the relationship between a journalist and White House official, falls under the purview of her reporting beat—because she was ‘jealous’ that an unidentified man in the past had ‘wanted to f***’ McCammond ‘and not you,’” the report added. “Ducklo also accused Palmeri of being ‘jealous’ of his relationship with McCammond.”

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said following the report that Ducklo has been suspended for a week over the incident.

“TJ Ducklo has apologized to the reporter, with whom he had a heated conversation about his personal life,” Psaki wrote on Twitter. “He is the first to acknowledge this is not the standard of behavior set out by the President.”

“In addition to his initial apology, he has sent the reporter a personal note expressing his profound regret,” she continued. “With the approval of the White House Chief of Staff, he has been placed on a one-week suspension without pay. In addition, when he returns, he will no longer be assigned to work with any reporters at Politico.”

Reporters called out the administration over the incident, highlighting how the Trump administration did not treat reporters that way as well as issues with the timeline of events with regard to the White House taking action to address the incident.

“The Vanity Fair piece indicates that Politico editors reached to the WH after the incident first occurred and the WH acknowledged it was inappropriate,” Spectator editor Amber Athey wrote on Twitter. “But they clearly didn’t have any interest in disciplining Ducklo until his behavior was made public.”

New York Magazine reporter Olivia Nuzzi wrote on Twitter: “I covered Donald Trump for 6 years. It is saying something that this behavior — from a Biden official — shocks me.”

Grabien founder Tom Elliott highlighted the following remarks that Biden made a few weeks ago: “If you’re ever working with me and I hear you treat another colleague with disrespect, talk down to someone, I promise you I will fire you on the spot, on the spot. No if, ands, or buts. Everybody — everybody is entitled to be treated with decency & dignity.”

CNN anchor Jake Tapper responded to the quote, writing: “Standards that are not upheld are not standards. They’re lies.”
