"What the fuck arista what's happening. I'm mark mayor and this is my podcast. Wtn welcome to it. If you're new to the podcast we've been added since two thousand nine creating a interesting conversation all over the map for for over a decade well over a decade were. We're doing this a long time. Thank you for listening. How are you look today on the show. Here's the deal. We get pitched guests from a booking agent and hunter biden was pitched. He's got a book out. Beautiful things a memoir. It's out tomorrow. So i talked to my producer brendan. Mcdonald's is waving hundred him. I don't know do we need to get into that. Do we need to get tossed around By the the the cultural to nami that follows that guy. And what is that guy really. And who is he added. I have no sense of him. So i was like. Nah we don't need it you know he'll be alright without doing our show. And i don't know i just don't know it doesn't feel good and then i it started bother me like i. I judge just based on what based on nothing. I've never seen him. I've never heard him talk. I know he had a drug problem. I know that the right wing machine sought to destroy him or destroy his father through him. They had this horrendous drug problem. And i just assumed that he was like a sociopathic douchebag. Yeah that was my. I mean why that. That's what i got in my head. But then then he started. It started to bother me. I was like this hundred biden. It just sort of eating at me. I'm like look man. I've i'm a recovering guy. I don't really know what this guy story is. Now i started thinking about like what is it got to be liked to be trying to recover from. You're being used as some sort of whipping boy by the right by all the right wing. Press being judged by the right and left but they're seeing you with some sort of portal into into some nefarious conspiracy. And they're hammering and hammering and hammering. How how does a human wanna a drug addict trying to stay. Clean deal with that. So i started thinking about like what is it like to be this guy. How did he handle it. This crack addicted son of our current president and look. I started to think. I i know how to talk to these guys. If he's got a little sobriety. I know how to talk that and know how to talk drug addicts. I've i've met these guys before. I know low bottom addicts who've dug out. I just started to think like we'll give me the book you know and i read the book and it. Just i'll tell you man it's most people probably have no idea really thankfully what it's like to be in addiction like to really not have any control over it but to feel that need to do that stuff that you no longer are concerned about yourself the depth of self destruction and depravity. I stayed in that group a mike. Well let's see who this guy is. Let me reach out to this hunter biden as a sober guy and have this conversation. Let's do it at the bottom of all this is like i like to have conversations with people about who they are what they come from what they do what. They want how they got to where they are. You know what i do here. And i just knew that you know out of the gate. This was going to be just from doing a little research before. I read the book. I knew that he was like a total mess with the marriages and the relationship with his brother's widow all the accusations of amusing like he clearly Traded on his family name to help with jobs. i didn't think he committed any crimes and doing that but it seems pretty obvious at t. He did use his name for personal gain. Though i assume that it's hard to know i mean he. He is a yale educated lawyer but he is a biden by imagine. That gets a little blurry but it was because of this that he was an easy target of people looking to to hurt. Joe biden to her. Joe biden's political prospects. He was the easiest target. In fact hunter was. And if you look into it. Which i did a lot of this stuff. The right wing tried to use against him was transparently just an attempt to hurt his father nothing else. They basically tried to run the crooked. Hillary playbook on joe biden by turning hunters business dealings into this financial conspiracy that involves joe biden and dubious corrupt forces in the ukraine. And you know. It was such a flimsy case. That trump got impeached by trying to manufacture it and a lot of the accusations against hunter were just just tabloid fodder that attacked his character for being a drug addict like like all that shit with his his laptop. I mean who the fuck carriers about his laptop even the people who said they looked at this stuff on the laptop. Couldn't come up with anything. The guy had an insanely dark struggle with drugs but he did survive that and he has to. This point survived this on swat of political contempt. But he's not out of the woods in any real way has a reprieve as we call it in the recovery racket around that stuff and if he if he does the work you know he can stay sober. But i mean. The justice department currently is looking into his taxes. There's an investigation that could end up with him in prison. They're still lot of struggle on the horizon for this guy. So what i wanna make that clear because that was my sense outside of all of the made up shit some very tangible very real.

Tony Bobulinski, Hunter Biden and China
"The Wall Street Journal has a couple of reports detail in the rest of the sort of Bob Belinsky story one. The headlines has. Hunter Biden, Sex business partner alleges Father knew about venture, however. Corporate records reviewed by The Wall Street Journal show no record for Joe Biden. According to The Wall Street Journal. The Biden campaign denied that Joe had any involvement in this Chinese venture with this oil company or stood to gain by it. Belinsky said he was rankled by Joe Biden's public statements. He never discussed the international business activities of Hunter and other family members. He also cited nearly $5 million in payments. A Senate Republican report last month said that C E F C made $200 law firm has another reason to come forward. Jablonski said he took part in the meeting with Hunter, Joe Biden and Joe Biden's brother, James Biden in L. A in 2017 when they discussed the Biden family business plans with the Chinese, of which Joe Biden was plainly familiar, at least at a high level. Biden campaign spokesman didn't immediately respond to a question about the alleged meeting with Bob Belinsky, James Biden and attorney for Hunter. Biden didn't respond to requests for comment. And then they, of course issued from the campaign. This blanket denial. Text messages and emails related to the venture that were provided to the journal. Bye Bye. Belinsky, mainly from the spring and summer of 2017 Don't show either Hunter Biden or James Biden discussing a role for Joe Adventure. Mr Gillie are is one of the partners told the Journal. I'd like to clear up any speculation that former VP Biden was involved with the 2017 discussions about our potential business structure. I'm unaware of any involvement in any time of the former VP the activity in question it never delivered any project revenue. Which sounds like maybe just maybe the project was on the road, and then it sort of fell apart. Kimberley Strassel has report over The Wall Street Journal on this She says. That Bible in skis text message just show he was recruited for the project by that James Gillies. Our character, 100 associate, Delia explains in December 2015 text, there will be a deal between the Chinese and what one of the most prominent families from the United States a month later he introduces Rob Walker, also a partner of Biden in March, 2016 Gilyard told Bob Belinsky, the Chinese entity was C E F C Which was shaping up to be the Goldmans of China. Meeting Goldman Sachs. Earlier promise that's a month to develop the terms of the deal with Hunter at this point, Joe Biden, of course, was still vice president. Is the deal began to take shape in 2017 by Belinsky began to question 100 would contribute. Besides his name and worried he was quote kicked out of the U. S Navy for cocaine use. Killer acknowledged skill sets it missing and observed that Hunter has a few demons. He explained that in brand 100 is imperative, but right now he's not essential for adding input. Hunter was hardly visible through most of the work until final negotiations ramped up in mid May, he brought in his uncle Jim Biden for a steak hunter in Texan emails wanted offices in three U. S. Cities, significant travel budgets of statement for Jim a job for an assistant and more frequent distributions of any gains. And, of course, he explained, he wanted a hell of a lot more than 100 $50,000 per year because his ex wife would nearly take all of it. Hunter repeatedly made clear that his contribution was his name. He railed at Bob Belinsky that the CFC heads are quote coming to be my partner to be partners with the Bidens even remind him that in this instance only one player holds the Trump card in its me may not be fair, but it's the reality because I'm the only one putting on and putting an entire family legacy on the line. Abiding claims he never discussed his son's business. But of course there was that made 2017 expectations letter, including that 10% for quote unquote, the big guy in one text, 100 said, quote my chairman given emphatic, no toe a version of the deal. Bye. Belinsky suggested that the chairman referred to Joe Biden. Deal fell through on the Chinese and in the summer of 2017. So is it possible that Hunter was freelancing? He was going around that that Joe had spent years basically patting me on the head telling me to go pick up bags of cash if you could help him And then now Joe's out of office and 100 want help Mount. He was freelancing and every so often you'd run something my job. Certainly possible certainly plausible. Is it true that Joe Biden while he was VP? Probably knew what Hunter was up to. Yeah, that is, that is probably true. Okay, So here's the problem. Nobody. The media wants to talk about this story at all. They don't find it interesting or fascinating at all that you're Biden has throughout his career engaged in sort of the low level corruption that many public officials do. Reckoning, sweetheart mortgages and that sort of thing. Well, or at least a sweetheart land deal from from people who are interested in some of the legislation on the table when he was in the Senate. And NPR put out an actual statement before the Nile before the denial from the Biden campaign. Here's what NPR's public editor said. Quote. We don't want to waste our time on stories that are not really stories. We don't want to waste listeners and readers time on stories that are just pure distraction. As unbelievable that is a taxpayer funded journalistic institution, openly declaring that they simply will not engage, but they're not interested whatsoever in the story preemptively. To the media. I mean, so all this is the lead up to their bait, right? The media are obviously and clearly on the side of Joe Biden, which means that the debate the stakes are really high. Because now this is basically the last chance. For Trump to set the table for Trump to change the topic from Trump to shifted course of the race. The members of the media again. It wasn't just NPR. Many members of the media were over and over, declaring that the hunter by the story was not, in fact a story. They kept a clean without any evidence whatsoever that it was Russian disinformation.
How the media covered up the Hunter Biden story — until after the election
"Have no idea what is going on with Hunter Biden. That's because a corrupt press covered the story up. His little question. Hunter leverage his father's position as vice president to enrich himself, accepting money from China, the Ukraine and possibly Russia. The Department of Justice Now looking into Mr Biden, because he may have not paid taxes on all that money we don't know, and he is innocent until proven guilty. Now the controversy was tamped down because the corrupt corporate media has no interest in damaging Joe Biden. Twitter and Facebook actually censored the story, classifying it as lacking context or misleading information. When users published the initial article from The New York Post. More than one million tweets were flagged on the platform. In the 1st 24 hours. That's incredible. President Trump mentioned a report during his 60 Minutes interviews asking quote. Why did Hunter Biden get $3.5 Million from Moscow? Reporter Lesley Stahl's response. Is this really an important issue for the country? All these things have been investigated and discredited. Well, that's not true. 60 minutes has not issued a correction. CNN president Jeff Zucker told his staff. So I don't think we should be repeating unsubstantiated smears just because the right wing media suggests we should MSNBC's Joe Scarborough told his audience. The hunter Biden story is obviously made up. And is the stupidest October surprise ever. The story was barely mentioned in The New York Times Washington Post. That was all before Election Day. After the vote, Attorney General Bar confirmed the federal probe into Hunter Biden. He should have done that sooner so Americans would know the truth. Last week. President elect Biden was briefly questioned on the topic. He once again dismissed the allegations entirely. Will oppress Hammer. Joe Biden on how his son obtained Million's during his time is vice president. Probably not. Well, the DOJ or IRAs. Uncover the truth. I hope so. But I'm doubtful.

William Barr Sees ‘No Reason’ for Special Counsels for Hunter Biden, Election
"With President Donald Trump. Outgoing Attorney General William Barr said today he saw no reason. To appoint a special counsel to look into the president's claims of election front or attacks and the tax investigation into the son of President elect Joe Biden things that Trump has really been looking forward to try to prove by the way, because let's face it. The sad reality of this. I don't care what you think about whether or not There was any election fraud or anything when it came to the coverage of the election. The media. Was if you don't believe that the mainstream media is now in Kohut when it comes to what they will and will not report You're kidding yourself. You're a fool. That's all there is to it. They bent over backwards not to report anything that hunter Biden did. I mean, there was a lad, Can you imagine? ALF. I will eventually finish a sentence. Yes. Can you imagine? If Donald Trump Jr or Ivanka Trump or any of the trump Children, even Tiffany If any of them had left the laptop. At a repair shop forgot about it. And then the information that was on one about that was on it about Hunter. Biden came out about one of the trump kids, can you there would have been wall to wall coverage. They would have. They would have preempted the mast singer just to talk about the trump Children like that, But because it was hunter Biden. Not only did they not talk about it, they full on hit it. I mean, when you're not when it's when you've got something like that, right in your face when you've got a practically a full on admission that he is using his father's influence in order to financially benefit himself when there's pictures of him using drugs on a laptop. And you don't do anything about it when there's absolutely no reporting about that. Anywhere but fringe news organizations. I mean, come on. I don't even care what you think about it because you know that if it was one of the trump Children, and that was out there, there would have been like I said, Wall to wall coverage. There would have been exposes. They would have taken off regular programming and gone news wall. The wall there would have been. I mean, you would have been able to avoid it. As it stands unless you had a particular political bent. You would have had to go out of your way to find the actual information about Hunter Biden, So it's It's really kind of disgusting now in its final press conference Mar also broke with Trump in reinforcing that federal officials believe Russia was behind the cyber espionage operation targeting the U. S government government. Trump has suggested without evidence that China could be responsible Bar said the investigation and 100 Biden's financial dealings with being handled responsibly and professionally. He said. I have not seen a reason to appoint a special counsel and I have no plan to do so before I leave. The reason that Trump wants a special counsel is because if there's a special counsel in investigating it It would make it more difficult for Biden to shut it down the way the investigation is right now, if when a Democratic age comes in, they can. They can shut it down and given the fact that pretty easily by the way, given the fact that what I was just saying that the mainstream media would wouldn't even touch the story with a 10 FT pole. If they shut the investigation down. If Biden the points is a ghee and gets in there, and the first thing they do is shut the investigation down. Odds are pretty good. You won't hear about it.

Attorney General William Barr resigns
"Attorney. General bill barr is formally resigned. He leaves office next week. A move that shows. How far differed from so many republican veterans in washington who did find themselves ultimately fire by tweet in the trump era sources around bar have been leaking his departure plans for weeks. They're now trying to cast some kind of independent figure who left clashing with trump over issues like voter fraud and keeping that newly revealed hunter biden probe secret before the election. Now let me tell you having covered this throughout the whole period of the trump. doj this is classic bar. It's not unlike the gap between bars letter that offer a muller book report and the actual report which is one of the many misleading and political acts that led so many. Doj veterans across both parties. Demand bar resign long before he did this week. And in addition to that meddling in the mueller probe you had meddling in cases regarding trump allies while bars own resignation letter doubles down on this problem. He falsely described tump trump. doj's own russia probe as an effort to cripple or oust the trump administration with frenzied and baseless accusations of collusion. He adds his salute to trump's quote unprecedented achievements for the american people joined now by a former federal prosecutor who has been a keen observer of the bar justice department. John flannery council. Good to see you good to see you days. Well we have the recency effect. Every lawyer knows it in trial you want to leave the jury with that last thought in their mind and it's probably going to be more effective than what you talked about on the first day. Right bar is nothing. If not an effective at times canny lawyer he leaves pointing and sources pointing to his clashes with donald trump. Do you think that's the way to remember him or was it a lot more of that earlier loyalty loyalty. I don't think is the key word for him. I think the words for him is that he's always believed does a federalist and somewhat of a christian cult this that the people really don't know what's best for them and so he really does believe in a monarchical government although it's striking to read his december fourteenth letter of resignation which reads a little bit like a hostage letter. I mean he's talking about how great this guy was abused them in the end because perhaps he couldn't go as far in their bromance in crime as trump was prepared to go. And like you said there's a whole series of things this man has done right after. He assured america he was going to be a great attorney general. Well he's probably the most erupt act of armor attorney general's throughout the history of the united states. That's his mark that's his legacy and he did it because he was not a law enforcement officer he was about his or trump. He did what trump needed to do for that policy. Which i suggest which. I think the embrace which is A government by fiat. I don't have to listen to you. Even congress Supported trump usurping usurping. The court Analyzing and investigating the investigations. That he then misrepresented as you. I said in. The mueller investigation. He has been every place. And i'm among those those thousands of prosecutors who said he should resign while he has belatedly but not for the reasons we said. He's he's obviously said something else but as he's going out the door. He was compromising those convictions. He was compromising are free and fair elections by these bogus statements he made about. We've found this fraud and somewhere along the line. it seems like there must have been an intervention. Somebody maybe a good criminal defense lawyer or someone who's concerned about ethics by which he could retain his bar license said. You have any idea what you're doing. Do you wanna be standing next to this guy. When he's flying to florida on the day of the inauguration or whatever crazy thing he does between now and january fifth or january six or january twentieth and trump He trump inhales the souls of people and guess them to do things that are their worst possible performances. And he's done that with bar. I don't know where bhargava would you like to have his resume he he.

"hunter biden" Discussed on Part of the Problem
"It's being widely reported that as you said this is much more than Much more than just like a tax investigation This even Let's see here even at cnn They're the article they read was federal criminal. Investigation into one hundred biden focuses on his business dealings in china. So that is that seems to be what this investigation is about. It's not simply You know was was a minor tax fraud committed here. This is his relationship with a competing of country. Run by a communist party that throws you know we're in you know concentration camps. That's literally just kind of you know Cramp down down. I should say on on freedom and hong kong This these are some bad people. And so yeah. This is This is a big story and yet it potentially could be huge Hugely problematic for the biden administration. And from i understand this. The this investigation predates the The election and even bar. Yeah i made efforts. According to the wall street journal made efforts to keep this from being disclosed in the public. While at odds right go ahead. Yeah so just the most important part is the fact that everyone knew like when they said. Hey were you were saying. This is just russian. Disinformation don't even look at this. There was an active investigation into whether or not under biden. And so yes. That's that is something that should have been reported on now for us in order to not be hypocrites because we were saying during the whole russia collusion thing. The fact that there's an investigation does not mean guilt. But we're just trying to say here is does become newsworthy and so to throw away the news story. And say hey. This is just wild accusations conspiracy theory talk. And it's a russian disinformation while you're actively our justice department's doing an active investigation. So that was a false clarification and the censorship's insane on that basis. Oh absolutely and there's this is what's really interesting about the story. It's not just so much. What hunter biden dead. It's not even if joe biden was involved. Which don't get me wrong. I'm not downplaying those stories. they're both big stories Particularly of joe biden was involved and collecting money. Then that's a really big story but to me. The even bigger story is what we learn about. How this this whole you know system how the whole cathedral came together And how they squashed. This suppressed this story. And what exactly. They did like very specifically what they did so. It's not in by the way just a one more point that i wanted to make to what you said yes. It's also been reported that bar as you said in the wall street journal. It was reported. That bar did his best to keep this from the public She's an interesting little piece of information. It's also reported that this investigation goes back to two thousand. Eighteen before bar was the attorney general. So it's not as if they the the Angle that like well. This is just trump's politicized justice department really falls apart with those two pieces of information number one. They weren't putting this out to the public and number two predated bar But what happened here was not simply that the corporate press suppressed a story so that joe biden could get elected or surprised the story. That could hurt him. potentially that is one aspect of it. And that certainly happened Msnbc and cnn and the new york times and by the way npr the news organization that you're that you're robbed to pay for. They also said they wouldn't be talking about the story because it was beneath their their their listeners. Or something like the readers so yes it was. It was wildly suppressed by the corporate press but there was more to it than that. There was also the big tech companies. Now that was a big part of it too. They crossed lines that they've never crossed before Certainly they have You know kick people off of their their networks and things like that but this was quite a bit different. This was a situation where they not only were voting people off of social media for talking about the story. They banned the link so that people could not share the article to the original new york post story and they froze the new york. Post's twitter account. They actually silenced one of the biggest newspapers in the world. A top five biggest newspapers in the country because they were running a story that was going to damage one of the political candidates. Okay so that is and the story by the way has not not one hole has been poked in the story. It's just gotten stronger over time. the more that's been verified. The more we verified that what they were saying is in fact correct And so that is that is a really big story like the fact that the corporate press and the big tech companies are m- in on this together working together Cooperating colluding that's a big story but here's one that might even be bigger than that and that's the role of the deep state and the intelligence community as they call it. The intelligence community as unelected bureaucrats in spies in other words set. They were all in on this too. At joe biden stood up on the debate stage. You've got to think for millions of americans. This was their only exposure to this story. I mean if you read the new york post then. Perhaps you knew the story. If you watched one of three shows on fox news or you watch like you know newsmax or like some other you know independent news organization like okay..

"I'm not sure exactly what. I'm probably sometime in the next week or so. But yeah so. I'm doing another one of these debates over there. i think people enjoyed the The last one. I'm going to be debating archie. Flower who Is the state share of for vermont Liberty the vermont. Libertarian party And he left the mesa's caucus and we are going to be discussing entryism and maybe finding out what that is and racism. And what whether the mrs caucus is guilty of any of these things are not so. That should be fun. I'm looking forward to that. And yes go. Check that out if you want to. I just recorded an episode with a peak grondona's of his podcast which just got released today. You more content. go go. Check that out That's the the business now. Let's get into the news So story that caught. My i thought was quite interesting. And i'm sure you did as well. Rob is our good old pal. Hunter biden the bad son of joe biden former vice president. I think the president and you don't hear from the good too much anymore. No no joe biden got his son killed and now he's stuck with the bad son and so he's just gotta deal with this crackhead getting foot jobs and taking chinese money so anyway hunter biden was in in many ways In october surprise this was a story that had been around for a while. However new revelations came out just a few weeks before the election We covered them pretty extensively on this show. And try to give you guys all of the information that we knew and pointed to We you know we talked quite a bit about it to to recap. There was a laptop that was given to rudy. Giuliani steve bannon. It came from a laptop repair shop in delaware and it became pretty clear pretty quickly that this was hunter. Biden's laptop There you know it was There were signature verifications. There was verifications of the email chains. The even the biden administration didn't deny or i should say the campaign at the time didn't deny that this was hunter biden's computer and There there was some pretty troubling stuff on there and not just the salacious. You know nude pictures and you know kind of seemed like some sex tapes and stuff like that. But there were all types of emails between hunter biden and foreign companies Kind of getting into how he was getting all the ridiculous amounts of money off of his last name off of being the former vice president's son which is certainly a story. Yeah i mean you can debate whether it's the biggest story ever But it's it's news. There's really no debating whether or not that is news worthy Then the story took another turn when There was actually an eye witness account. That joe biden was well aware Contrary to what he had told the american people that he was well aware of his Son's business and in fact that he was in on it and he was getting money from it as well This bob alinsky guy. There's no question was a business. Partner of hunter biden was involved with these deals. He claimed that he had met. Joe biden and disgust stuff with him. In that joe biden was taking a cut in that he was now. That is not a proven. We don't know that for sure. But there's an accusation again. It's news and don't think for a second that if there was a in an eyewitness account let's say Donald trump junior partner came out and said i've discussed russian business deals with donald trump. And he's getting cut of the money. That certainly would have been deemed newsworthy. However that's not what happened because This was a couple of weeks out from the election and the corporate press had a very naked agenda and that was to get joe biden elected. They not only ignored. The story ridiculed people who brought up. The story claimed it was russian disinformation and pretended that it didn't exist. So that's that's more or less. What have we can get into some more details because there's more to it of that More to it than just that but the news that just came out. The other day is that hunter biden is under federal criminal investigation. And he's confirmed this now. This has been widely reported This we now know that hunter biden is under a federal criminal investigation and has been four years so this is a real vindication for the people who were talking about this story. Now don't get me wrong. This does not prove every accusation made is correct but it's certainly proves beyond a shadow of a doubt that this was newsworthy. I mean there's a much higher standard for something being worthy of a federal criminal investigation than something being newsworthy. And so if this is worthy of a federal criminal investigation then. There's no question that this should not have been something. That was ignored By by the corporate press. What did you think when you saw the news yes. The first thing that i caught my eye was a political politico or about it in the political article They were actually saying that. This goes beyond just being a tax investigation. But they're also looking into bribery fraud and other stuff. Now i find political to be very left leaning so just the fact that they were reporting on that and saying it's actually worse than just tax was interesting on the same note. There was new york times article today. Were they were kind of saying. Hey this might be a real problem for the biden administration. It's not clear biden is going to be tied insists so just the fact that the left wing media is priming people to go. Hey this the there. There might be substantial issue. Here makes me wonder if this is actually gonna stick. Yeah well it's it's a..

"So hunter biden now comes out. Preemptively says that he's under federal investigation for taxes despite being investigated by a. Us attorney was just taxes. It'd be nothing more than a civil audit being done by the internal revenue service. This is more than taxes. This is potential money laundering connections foreign espionage and the entire biden crime family not to mention his uncle. Joe biden's brother. James is under federal investigation for a corrupt hospital. Deal gone wrong. There's so many different things. I need to unpack about this. Let's just start here. Do you understand how evil it is that those of us that were talking about this in october were suppressed kicked off social media and we are not able to make the case to independent swing voters and now. This is being published widely by cnn cbs. Now everyone is covering this. Tony bob alinsky was called a traitor. Everybody seditious do. We have a clip of joe biden addressing. This at the debate is that we have here. That's a different one. We do have tony bobby. Alinsky though don't we. Let's play a clip of tony. Bobby alinsky then. I wanna play james rosen now. The reason i'm playing this is that none of this is breaking news. None it i was just watching cable. Television breaking hunter biden under federal investigation. No if you did your job you would have realised that was admitted by tony bobby. Alinsky and the department of justice back in late october. The reason you didn't cover it as you didn't you would not like what would happen next. Which is swing voters and independent voters specifically in georgia and arizona. Who might not like trump. but i certainly don't like democrat political corruption. Not vote for joe biden. That's why you didn't cover it play. Tapeh tony bobby. Alinsky prior to the final presidential debate in nashville on october twenty. Second that bobby. Linski a former naval nuclear command officer with a q. level security clearance now a wealthy corporate investor. I went public with his charges about the biden family including his account of to face to face meetings with the former vice president. The fbi interviewed. Bob alinsky the very next day. Did you get the sense that the fbi had already been working on these related issues And matters prior to you making that public statement in nashville My impression is everyone in. That room was very aware of the sensitivity of the parties involved here and potential multiple impacts to this country. So nothing you're reading right now. Should be a surprise to you about hunter biden under federal investigation. This is something that bobby alinsky revealed. This was in late october. And none of the networks. No one was even allowed to discuss this whatsoever. And then adam schiff went on television and said. This is russian disinformation. Had out of the kremlin. These are people that are in charge of our intelligence committee. Play tape of adam. Schiff saying that. This is russian. Disinformation from the kremlin. Play tape. Well we know that. This whole smear on joe biden comes from the kremlin. That's been clear for well over a year now that they've been pushing this false narrative about the vice president and his son comes from the kremlin. No no we don't know that congressman adam schiff. You understand how pathological these people are that now we have. Us attorneys and federal agencies.

"The the what's not the worst of it first, and then they bust these people trying to block the information But I I mean he's claiming he's hoping that he can catch Biden. An ally Rae says something about the earlier information. Then later information comes out, but it seems a little shady to me that if they've got this close the election with many people mailing in their votes. That if they've got this smoking gun of like pedophilia or something else why they wouldn't be putting again, you would think you would want that out as a as soon as possible. But who knows maybe they're full of shit maybe they don't really have a smoking gun or maybe they've got a trick up their sleeve and we will say the one thing I can think which which would be really interesting. If they've got that smoking gun and their release it like a gay or two before the election and they can't you know Swipe Joe Biden off of the ballot and then it turns out that the amount of mail in votes from a month ago statistically versus the amount of people that shifted because they were able to make decisions on this information if that becomes a big point of contention amongst. Amongst, who who should be in office? Especially, if it turns out the Joe can't even do the job from day wine and that everyone voted for Joe would be really voting for Kamala how that would then play out in court? Yeah. It's all all of that subs- going to be interesting. I'm I'm convinced more and more that no matter who ends up winning this election they are going to be perceived as illegitimate by the other side, but that would certainly be one way to make that happen Okay. So the other clip that I wanted to play today, which is Just. GonNa be a fun one to go into our favorite little piggy over at a at CNN Brian stelter. And it's just interesting to see right the to kind of. Look at the reaction of everybody and how they deal with the story like that. So here's how this is a great example one of the the stars of the corporate press how he handles this hunter, Biden controversy. Let's check in with our favorite little piggy. The New York Post front page announcing Biden secret emails more shadiness involved Hunter Biden. As political entertainment goes this is not a brand new TV show. It's just a new season of the show hundred Biden's business dealings and Ukraine were a key part of the plot last season in the pause it already he's already it's like crazy how fucking? The blatant propaganda already starts out with Oh crazy story out of the political entertainment. It's like what about this is not a listen if this is true, right. If just the information we've already gotten out of this if it's true then it's like blatant corruption and Joe Biden lied about it. So in in no universe is that not a political scandal if it's true now if it's not true. Okay. Show me what the reason to think it's not true as like I'm I'm fine with that but to just like dismiss it as like. A political entertainment, and then as he was about say here, Hunter Biden already apologized for kind of or at least he said it was poor judgment. It's like well okay. But this is a whole different level. We all knew that this was a swampy a swamp creature thing to do whatever hunter Biden headset we know obviously nobody thinks this guy had such important knowledge in the energy sector or you know is so valuable this company that he deserved fifty k. a month or whatever he was getting. We've known this for over a year now. Everyone gets that but this is now indicating that he set up meetings between his father and one of the at the company. So that's a hold as a scandal. I'm sorry there's no way to slice that that it's not okay. That's that's a political scandal. But, of course, this has to be the tone going into a anyway. I. Thought that was worth noting let's keep playing all. These already admitted to poor judgment and swampy behavior. His father has said that it will not happen again, and at this point, most people have moved on but trump needs closing argument. So, he has media. So again, let's just pause it but I just noticed the tactics notice the absolute bullshit tactics that the corporate press uses a imagine if they just go they just go. Most people have moved on. Like well, okay that's how you cover a news story. If there's a scandal, you don't just go well, most people have news have moved on. You would say, well, Hey, you guys shouldn't move on because there's a scandal here. Let's go most people have moved on but trump needs a closing argument. Well, look obviously that's true. I mean. It's not it's not as if it's untrue. That trump needs a closing argument. It's like you know, but you can't just look at a story lately if just came out that Joe Biden murdered puppies or something like that. You go like well, obviously trump just wants this story because it'll help them politically well yes, that's true. But that's not really be story here. The story is that we've had Joe Biden murders, puppies. You know what I mean like it. It's just this is such a tactic to go. Well, most people have moved on and trump JR needs and argument it's like well, of course, they're in an election of course, trump wants the best argument against Joe Biden that he can find that doesn't none of this has anything to do with whether or not. This is a new newsworthy story as a matter of people have moved on doesn't matter if trump wants something that damages biden the is, is this a political scandal or not, and it clearly is again if it's true and if it's not then okay present evidence that it's not but all the evidence seems to point toward this being real. All right. Let's get back to. What aboutism right? So just pull it back a little bit. Because this funnest part. Yes. Rely, on what aboutism right. So you ask about the trump family sloppiness and they say, what? About one hundred Biden you raise trump's legal exposure and they say, what? About Obama Gate you might say liberal critics say trump is compromised and they say, no Biden's compromised coupons for second guess like. This is the most glorious ripped with irony thing I've ever heard be. Actively. Engaging in what aboutism whilst like in other words, there's an accusation against trump and as opposed to addressing that accusation I mean acquisitions Biden whether or not. This accusation is so bad. He goes well, what about what trump's doing and trump? He's a guy who says what about? Doing like you're exact. You're doing exactly what you accuse them of doing in this very moment first of all. Does makes my blood boil. I actually had to sit down and think about why this makes my blood boil so much like sometimes you get something pisses you off so much and you're like wait what is it exactly about this? That's pissing me off so much lose a few also pissed me off I'm about forty pounds and shaved eyebrows away from looking like this guy. I got to see it now that you mentioned. Okay. So the first thing that really pisses me off is a a a grown man using the term. What aboutism it's sounds like something a fourteen year old chick should say, this is not like. This is something like literally something that a fourteen year old says on Tiktok this is not something that an anchor on CNN. What aboutism, and then of course, there is your point about the just wonderful irony of the whole situation that he is engaging in what aboutism as he's criticized. At. So blatantly bike it's just unbelievable. You literally like. Okay. So there's a story about Hunter Biden in his corruption, and this is just like trump. This is what he always does what aboutism and every time you criticize something about trump they do that. So okay you're doing the exact thing. You're accusing him of doing your also revealing something pretty profound without even meaning to that..

"To get fifteen percent off get a day today. All right. Let's get back on the show. So let's play the next video which is a of Ratcliffe, the director of National Intelligence because this was worth. Noting that this happened Oh and Maria. Getting a lot of shot. Is the director of National Intelligence John. RATCLIFFE. Director it's great to have you the swimming. Thank you so much being here. Good Morning Marie with you. I WANNA start on the validity of all of this because we have been doing a deep dive into this laptop and these emails which indicate. Hunter Biden who was cashing in on his father's position Adam Schiff from the chairman of the Intel Committee is out and about this weekend on Sunday. Morning shows saying all of this news is just Russian disinformation and it's not true. You're the director of National Intelligence you see more intelligence than anybody in the country. Other than the president of the United States. So you can tell us what's real and what's fake is this Russian disinformation director. So, Marie. It's funny that some of the people that complain the most about. Intelligence being politicized are the ones politicizing intelligence and unfortunately in this case? it is Adam Schiff, the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee who as you pointed out on Friday said that the intelligence community believes. That hunter. Biden's laptop and the emails on it or part of some Russian disinformation campaign. Let me be clear. The intelligence community doesn't believe that because there's no intelligence that supports that and we have shared no intelligence with chairmanship or any other members of Congress that hundred Biden's laptop as part of some Russian disinformation campaign it's simply not true and this is. Exactly what I said, I would stop when I became the director of National Intelligence, and that's people using the intelligence community to leverage some political narrative, and in this case, apparently chairmanship wants anything against his preferred political candidate to be deemed as not real and is using the intelligence community or attempting to use the intelligence community to say, there's nothing to see here. don't drag the intelligence community into this Hunter Biden Laptop is not part of some Russian disinformation campaign and I think it's clear that the American people know that the intelligence community has not been involved with hunter. Biden's laptop. Hunter. Biden person and he would be subject to investigation regarding fraud or corruption would be. The jurisdiction of the FBI. So the FBI has had possession of this. I'm ending on any investigation. There's a lot going on there which if you've been following politics for the last two years is really interesting. But this Guy John Ratcliffe Congress and he was one of the heroes. At. All the congressional hearings about the Russia distant formation and everything that happens at trump in terms of the Mueller report all that stuff, and so they move them over to this job as the director of. National Intelligence Schiff, and everybody. Repeatedly at you remember from the last election they went every single person is saying the Russians involved like it's always constant appeal to authority. So like these the chess pieces behind the scene where they moved their guy into the position of the director of national intelligence that they can't make these claims and so it's funny that they're still trying to make the claims of the intelligence community is saying it's Russian disinformation and now trump has his people in there. I would think being more honest than the last go around but since it's his person he gets to. Say. nope. You guys that that was the ball. She got to spend the last time when you were lying. But guess what you lost their pond piece on the board I got my pawn here. So you can't make that claim anymore. Well, it's funny because if you're I, think if you're like a normal reasonable person who pays attention to this shit, I don't care what either side is claiming the intelligence is and I don't care what the three letter fucking alphabet soup organizations are claiming the intelligence as if you have evidence that this is a Russian disinformation campaign. Great. Show us the evidence. and. Then I'll take a look at it and see if it's compelling but that's it and there's no they do so much shit where it's just like a soon we'll. Obviously, we can't show you why would you not be able to show us the evidence of this being Russian disinformation that's important information share it with us like that's you know like this is so a right away. You're like, okay I don't care who says what there's evidence of show me the evidence. I just don't believe you because you're all a bunch of fucking. Liars. And you've lied for years to the American people. So but shift particularly has been caught red handed lying about Russian interference Russian collusion Russian conspiracy is for the last four years. So no I'm sorry I'm not buying that for a second and now you have the director of national intelligence just being like he's making this up there is nothing and don't forget that chef who is the head of the has intelligence committee he said during the the Muller investigation that he had seen the smoking gun evidence that was gonNA lead to indictments. Just lying through his teeth. Bullshit. Anyway this is just interesting to get that perspective. They can try to dismiss this as Russian disinformation, but there's no evidence that's been presented to to believe that at all. All of the evidence points to the fact that they actually did get hundred Biden's computer. You know we're the was it shady yeah. It seems a little bit weird. No no question about it seems a little bit weird that Hunter Biden just went in and left his laptop an with with all the sensitive shit never recovered it. Then again crackhead gotta make moves crack to smoke griddle Chapelle. CRACKHEAD gotta make moves cracked chocolate to eat you know. SO THAT'S A. Any movie you've ever watched it's always the bosses idiot kid that he keeps in the organization that ruins the whole thing keep those idiots around idiots they keeping idiots. Yeah. Well, that's right and then of course, is it a little bit strange that the Guy like sent went through the hard drive read emails, sent it to the FBI also made a copy of it and then send it out to skinny. Then, he's trying to cover his tracks. Yeah. Which I think actually might be a felony What he did if there is born on there, that also might be if by the way I think it's a weird legal ground I think everybody everyone you send that to and who watches it is committing a crime also. So it's very strange kind of thing however that. All of that being weird or even a little unethical or shady does not. Make it false and what we care about is the truth particularly if there's crimes being committed or just you know even if it's legal corruption that's important for people to know So all of this you know this is the situation it's it's strange, but there is A. there. It's fucking interesting and we'll see where this goes were going to find out about this You know we're we're going to figure out whether or not. There's really more of a smoking gun here or whether this is a bluff in the next few weeks I think. So we'll. Stay tuned what Giuliani saying that there's going to be news stories coming out every single day and the reason why he's GonNa drip the information is I guess too well firstly, at this point, it's hard to drift the information because if they done it all at once you know with that twitter block, maybe it would have disappeared. So I guess if like you know the..

"Remember that Savannah Guthrie whatever that Lady's name at NBC News is very randomly asked. Donald. Trump to condemn. Pedophilia conspiracies at the last town hall, which was odd. It's just that wasn't in the news before that wasn't a thing. There was no. It seemed like a very strange question to be asked of him which trump. Did Not do. You know he did not condemn it and instead he came out and was like I'm totally against pedophilia and just anyway, it's just kind of interesting pedophilia came up like pedophilia doesn't usually come up at a presidential town hall that's not a normal subject and with all this other stuff and Larry Conley that's interesting and You got one more connection which was out of that Senate report. They affiliated payments from a Russian games like a a wife of mayor who was involved in the mob and I think some sort of affiliation said At least horror traffic and child trafficking. But that was the even though this goes down kind of like the looney rabbit old. But if you're laying out all the little dots to suggest that there might be evidence for that. That is a little pieces of evidence. It's I'll tell you it's just several different things coming together that make you go. And then when you when you take a look at those things and go And you look back at how twitter shut down the story. And have an facebook shut down the story in a way that they have really never done before the story. It does seem a little bit fishy now. I, without either is not proof of anything. I'm just saying seems fishy without the entire pedophilia element they'll might be enough corruption year that it would make sense for. Twitter facebook youtube to shutdown I think part of Lost turn the election. The last time was like that. Russia collusion in the FBI reinvestigating doubt the way that that kind of just you know went wild on social media and they realized Oh shit like even if there's just a question in people's minds, it can sway voting. So I let you want to go to the benefit of the doubt maybe this is a fake story they go. Oh, Shit. This fake story swirling around with only twenty days for us to discredit. This is a really big fake story and it can sway voters I. so there's enough corruption e there's enough corruption here and I think corruption is GonNa come true it's almost weird that Ukraine thing was never fully investigated. In. There's enough there. I end there's enough that like people were just aware of that corruption that. So anyways, there's enough without this pedophilia thing that it would make sense that the powers that be would try and shut down the story. Yeah. Well, listen the what you have here even short of any of that stuff is you have. A pretty huge scandal going right into the election. I mean, the more you look at this and the more details that come out from it this is a big deal. First of all, it's important to note that no one. From the Biden campaign or Hunter Biden or anyone like that is coming out and saying, this is false. This is not hunters emails. This is like they're not, and evidently a lot of news sources are claiming that this is really been verified at this point that this is hunters meaning that they've contacted a lot of people who were emailed from the these email accounts that. Say That confirm that yes we were emailing with Hunter Biden also if it did come, let's just say theoretically it had come Russia this goes back like that Hillary Clinton thing where you go interview it doesn't matter it's true information if there's true information here of the fact that you're corrupt, it doesn't matter where it came from that should now be ignored because can't you know No absolutely, I mean look our problem with Hillary Clinton doing opposition research on Donald Trump using a former British spy Christopher Steele who it it looks like might have been. Somehow related to the Russian government but putting out this steele dossier, the problem is that it was fake like I don't care if it was opposition research or how it was done i. if all that stuff was true. Then of course, that would be very important and as you might notice when they were pretending that shit was true. No one in the entire corporate press when will you know what this is out of bounds because it's private information or its opposition research or anything like that? No. When they thought there was a chance. It was true even most of them new they were very happy to use that. So that's you know. That that same standard can be applied to this stuff if Osama bin Laden came out of a cave with the folder of information on all Donald Trump's finances in him being involved in child trafficking. We'd go shit apparently we still got to kill Osama bin Laden. Then we'd also what's in the folder wow. He did some really good research here. I mean if it was factually accurate we went to go. Well, that's from Osama bin Laden. Look think about anything that's like really important like if you found out I, don't know like. If. You found out that like the you know the chemicals in your kids food could kill them or something like that like your kids life is in danger and he'd be like, yeah. But I you found out by hacking into someone's computer but you go. Okay. Well, then I, don't want the information that way it's no, you want the fuck it information because this is a matter of life and death and this shit is important. It's it's also a matter of life in debt. So like this is this is no joke. So yeah you want accurate information. No matter how you got it. All right guys. Let's take a quick break I wanna tell you about our brand new.

"There's some or has been some sort of investigation. Into something that Hunter Biden has been doing or was up to, and let's just think this through for a minute. Joe Biden wins the election as the polls indicate he is likely to do at this point, the Biden Justice Department takes over, and there is an outstanding investigation into the president's son. Are. We going to have to have a special counsel right off the bat under the Biden. Justice Department. Going to give us something new to talk about isn't it? How do you avoid? Saying these stories repeat themselves it's Now. He I think Mike you're exactly right. I mean we're we're we're obviously for present purposes focused on how this thing lands in the middle of a campaign in whether Russia's behind it or not. But it's obviously pointing to this thing in the corner that like you know hundred might be being investigated and how it's not GonNa play when you have, you know the son of the president possibly facing criminal charges to be clear I have no information on that but. If. This were nothing but a story about, hunter. Biden's laptop was subpoenaed in December of two, thousand nineteen by the FBI that would be the story and we. Strikes me as a pretty big story. Me Bring Matt into this because as someone who you a chief of staff to a FBI director Bob Muller. Remember well, the controversy multiple controversies that James Comey stepped into by revealing investigations at the end of a presidential campaign. What do you think Chris Wray the current FBI director is thinking right now. Hiding under his desk guy saying. Chris Pretty remarkable job wedding of trying to stay out of the fray and sort of manage the bureau during a really difficult time with the president. Consistently criticizing him and his leadership and the the guys playing in these in these types of investigations, the norm at the Justice Department as you all know, well, as did not comment on education so you haven't if you have a grand jury. Subpoena issued there is no proper way for the Justice Department to respond to our conversation or other conversations about the meaning of that of that subpoena you know what was that subpoena for? What was the purpose of that? So there's lots of reasons I. Mean I know we're focusing on under bind in that I get it but like it if I was listening and reading about this I think there are a number reasons why the FBI might subpoena the laptop or the or the hard drive including to focus on Russian influence operations as as the target of the investigation we don't know and we're not gonNA find out and we you know it'd be beyond Komi level inappropriateness for the for the FBI have press conference and explain exactly what they're doing here. Especially, you know two weeks before the election. So there's lots of possibilities but the justice. Department, the are not going to talk about it in the course of this investigation and. Ron Johnson, the chairman of the homeland. Security Committee is written to Ray asking for answers about all this Bhai next week I believe I would say there's zero chance. Kris Ray. Is going to respond with any substantive explanation of what that. The chance. Bill Bar weighing in and confirming the existence of an investing. Our. I I knew I get blowback every time I say this but I think you know bar does have some limits to how far he will go List on my twitter feed I'm sure. goes out. That I. There have been some reason events sort of pushed in that direction on Bar with That the closing down of the nation into the unmasking unmasking. Yeah. Yeah. Interesting counter to the you know sort of the most extreme views of bars. Politics, he did it very quietly I. I assume hoping that the president wouldn't wouldn't find out. He did. Without. Without telling anybody, we had the break the story that he'd even done it for them Alan. Arkin read the polls as well as anybody else in your Mike I mean what would possibly be in it for bill bar to you know fifteen days from an election to come out and confirm an investigation into the sound of the Democratic nominee I mean presuming the bill also does not think that he's likely to have this job in second trump administration I see. No. Just to wrap this. Up then I got one other subject which I want to raise with both of you guys. But to wrap this up, what's your respective takes on the way twitter and facebook handled this in twitter's case blocking people seeking to re tweet the New York Post. Story. And we'll take that one I. I. I think this is I'm very sympathetic to those companies trying to make these decisions in real time in Inter unprecedented context. You know like how do they enforce their policies around knock putting out false information or information in the day? Believe is harmful the. Virus context you're not putting out false information around you around use of masks. For example, think they're tr- they're making. They're really trying to do the best. They can really difficult circumstances I I don't have a sense of whether or not facebook was right or wrong twitter was right or wrong in this case. It's different because they didn't know whether the information was false right? Right. So it's harder right but twitter's initial explanation for doing. So which was that they weren't going to allow the re tweeting of material that had not been authorized to whether you have no rob to the providence of the. That I thought was pretty outrageous so much more difficult. To justify the as right and you're. Up on the them for. Taking a stab it's I just think it's really hard in along with 'em getting riot near case. Shane. Response using and given. I. Understand they're SORTA improvising here in their kind of writing played walk as as new experiences present themselves. They gave different explanations at one point saying, well, we can't let anything that might have been the product hats materials be re tweeted or posted but..

"But what's interesting to me all of this and this is where I think it gets very fishy. Is this computer store owner who she we should say is both a supporter of the president and is on record both journalists. Any thought that the impeachment was a sham? And was trying to get this information to the authorities. He says because he wanted it to come up in the impeachment as a sort of point of of Sculpture Tori evidence for the president to show that know Joe Biden really is as corrupt as they say, there's this weird gap in time between that and when he purportedly gets in touch with Rudy Giuliani and that is like the sort of Lakota now that he will not talk about he doesn't WanNa say how he got in touch with rudy he says, he has some interlocutors you won't say who they are. You won't say exactly when it is and. You know that is the point where I think a lot of the suspicion is sort of driving out which is as as positive of Russia being involved but you've got this sort of squishy area and a guy like rudy. Giuliani was his track record. In this kind of you know a little mysterious computer store owner that because that's the part where we're still asking questions. But to me, that's the very important part like what motivates this owner to get in touch with Rudy Giuliani and who is sort of in the circle when that is happening and you know and also had a Steve Bannon get involved by. Stuff we still don't know. Yeah I mean there are. Right for this story, one seed band pleasing brought charges other. Is Out digging up this information in Ukraine to help us crime so I'm glad people like Shane another dean into the details of this figure out. How, if there isn't a credibility to it but since just on his face, you've been away today I was reading the and your host, some of the question about who was going to sign off on the story quite in terms of putting your name on the byline raise questions about well, and one of them who was willing to had been had been a producer for Sean Hannity right and the veteran reporter from the New York Post who I think has been there since two, thousand, seven who. His name be taken off it. So that is also also I mean. Just in terms of journalism here, setting aside whether the underlying facts are true at all. It was pretty appalling for one thing. They never sought comment apparently from the Biden campaign, which is a pretty fundamental thing if you're. Accusing them of these kinds of things and then secondly and I think this actually goes to the whole controversy over why twitter refused to allow to share. The New York Post story on their platform is that the New York Post did not delete any of the personal information on these emails that did identify hundred Biden and others. So there's that part of the narrative as well. There are two other pieces of this that we me as. On. The other side of you know whether we should be taking some of this more seriously. I is that FBI subpoena. What is that all about at some point I believe Jane correct me if I'm wrong it's December of last year the FBI takes possession. Of this laptop with a subpoena that suggests they are investigating something related to this and again for what it's worth Radcliffe said today it's not Russian. Disinformation. That's what Radcliffe although although NBC I think Kendall I think reported. that. An investigation related to this. And Influence of an influence operation. Yeah Yeah And number two. Yeah. We all focused initially on the email suggesting that hunter had helped set up a meeting with his father then the vice president for a Burris. Ma Executive and the executive apparently thanks hunter for the opportunity to do. So it's not clear whether the meeting ever took place with that email was sent before the meeting or after but it does suggest that at least there were discussions about trying to influence then Vice President Biden and the other is the email about China in which there's that intriguing reference to holding ten percent of the equity held by h hunter for the Big Guy Shane what do you make of the FBI subpoena and the China email? Well I. Think you're right that the subpoena indicates there is some law enforcement interest in the laptop right now interestingly, the way that the laptop store owner tells the story I think I have this chronology right? He's in contact. He says with the FBI, they don't WanNa take the laptop initially, but they make a copy of the laptop then they come back for the laptop. So now we're speculating here but does that mean as they examined their copy of it, they saw something that they thought was relevant or Germane to an investigation and wanted to go back and get the laptop itself than have chain of custody over it maybe I mean that would follow some protocol. That, we're used to seeing does this mean they're investigating Hunter Biden for something that he was up to possibly right now that it is in their possession, there's this reporting as you said that the FBI is interested in some kind of foreign interference piece of this we don't really and we've tried to figure this out the post to really know what that means. Exactly. So we may be looking looking at an investigation that is pursuing kinda parallel to this one that we don't even know about that were were speculating here in going only on the fact that this thing was subpoenaed and that does not appear by the way to be a made up document us a USA's name on that subpoena is is a real A. USA in Delaware, there's no reasonably falsified document now as to the content itself, I think the China e mail is very interesting and I am frankly I'm kind of surprised that the president and others aren't trying to zero in on some of this stuff more you know the questions of Burris Ma and Ukraine that just feels like if I'm just started putting. On. The campaign skulduggery cap right that feels like old stuff were over that. We went there China's new China's different and instead you're seeing things like vague tweets from the president about huge scandal. But they're not specifying what it's about I suspect that trump will ask Joe Biden about it in the debate on Thursday who is the Big Guy? What is this about? Biden will be prepped with an answer, but you know if it's surfacing legitimate questions than by all means ask them. I, just don't know that I've seen anything in those emails that leads me to think that actually answers the questions. It just rick more up and I want to ask mad about that because let's just posit for a moment that these emails are authentic. Let's focus on the on the BARISTA email. So setting up a some kind of a meeting with this Rizla advisor either for the future or the email. Says that already happened it's unclear from the email and let's say you know Biden does have some cursory meeting with this guy I mean, what's the impact of that I mean you know like what does it tell you about Joe Biden I mean I I tend to agree in the in the current environment with with chains observation about. Ukraine burris MMA story to the extent sort of being you know sort of a dredged up again in the context of the of the of these purported e mails is really old news I mean. The broader picture is you know I'm sort of arguing with the premise of your question, a little bit Dan but the broader picture this has just been route basically debunked over the past year of everyone who's looked at it carefully with any credibility in terms of Biden's role in Ukraine, and trying to influence the prosecutor there and and how his involvement in trying to get the prosecutor to be more aggressive right to go after other and corruption. So I just I think there's a sense of this is. Pretty welded a gated at this stage and we'll and doesn't have any real. Is the premise of my question, which is that even if it happened even if something happens, you know there's a little bit of smoke maybe but really no fire. Yeah Exactly I think that even if there is some accuracy to the email for. Right is no impact. On the BARISTA'S SMA Ukraine part of it but on the China part of it, holding ten for the big guy that seemed to me would could raise a lot of troubling questions but I want to pick up on a point. Shane made a minute ago, which is that the FBI subpoena appears to be real and it was signed by a real a USA who could presumably on the Disputed if if he didn't actually sign it so that means.

"Are now joined by two of our favorite guests when it comes to all matters of intelligence and counterintelligence Shane Harris the. Accomplished intelligence reporter for the Washington Post and Matt Olsen former director of the national counterterrorism center former general counsel. It'd the NSA an informal adviser to the Biden Campaign Shane and Matt Welcome back to skulduggery, and it's great to be back to be. A lot of interest of course in this hunter. Email. Story that has caused quite a controversy in the last weeks of the campaign. Now, you had an important story of your own the Washington Post last week about how president trump had been warned by his national security. Adviser Robert Ryan that Russian intelligence was targeting Rudy Giuliani who of course appears to have been the source for the Hunter Biden email story. Tell us what you learned. So. What we found was back in December early December of two thousand, Nineteen Rudy Giuliani while he was off in Ukraine meeting with pro Russian Ukrainian former lawmakers. In this part has been reported was trying to dig up jerk on Joe Biden may remember he met this guy named Andre Kosh who he said had a lot of good information about corruption and Burris. Mun Joe Biden and Hunter Biden all of that stuff that was at the core of the impeachment hearings. What we found is the US intelligence officials were aware of these meetings were intercepting communications on the foreign side that showed that these Russian assets essentially were trying to funnel disinformation back to the White House via rudy rudy was not an unwitting participant in this as it's been described us, he was over there looking for this information trying to find people look get it to him, and this sets alarms at the upper reaches of the intelligence community and the national security leadership because here's the president's personal lawyer meeting with these individuals known to be working on behalf of Russia. And trying to obtain information that could be damaging to the president's political adversaries. So you've got both a counterintelligence intelligence problem kind of like classically right there but also a real political issue because the president is about to be impeached in the house and his top advisers are terrified that he's gonNA listen to rudy. Here's some new things about Hunter Joe Biden, and go out as they put it to us and say something stupid and politically damage himself even more of an. Already was. So the decision is made send in Robert O'Brien national security advisor to say to the President Look you can't trust what's coming from Rudy. Giuliani we know he's your lawyer. You're going to do what you want, but you need to understand he's being as they put it worked by Russia assets in Ukraine and you need to have this information if you're gonNA listen to him trump as we're told the meeting goes sort of shrug off shrugs his shoulders and says, that's Rudy. What are you gonNA do and O'Brien walks out of that meeting not at all sure whether he got through to the president. Giuliani is at the White House about a week later, and then sometime after that meeting with the President Mar-a-lago and I think it's safe to say that the president's belief that there is a hunter Biden. Joe Biden Barista conspiracy has not abated even after having gone through impeachment. Quick follow up for Shane and then want to bring Matt into this but just tell us a little bit more about Andre, your cash and call him an asset as a Russian spy. I mean what? What is his role? What do we know about them and how sure is the US intelligence community of of that? So dare cash is formerly a member of the. Party of regions in Ukraine, which is this now defunct political party that it was the kind of Pro Russia party within Ukraine, by his own account, his father was a KGB officer in their cauti-, went to KGB affiliated school his sort of Russian connections in sympathies I think have been pretty well known to people who follow that are the world for some time the. Labeling of him as a Russian asset is now unofficial matter of record into forums actually won the director of National Intelligence Office in August put out a statement on foreign election interference which identified their Cauti- as a conduit for disinformation from Russia that was meant to as they put it denigrate Joe. Biden in harm his campaign and then more recently the Treasury Department is. Actually, sanctioned their cash for these election interference activities and labeled him in their words a Russian asset. Now, that doesn't mean that he is like an employee of the GRU. This means that he somebody who works on behalf of Russian interests and is the telling community sees it is no wittingly doing the bidding of Russian intelligence services. Now, how far that goes up to? Move Putin himself directing it I'm not sure we know that but notably the Treasury statement they said that he's been acting in this capacity for years. So I think what this tells us in our reporting corroborates this there's essentially kind of an intelligence file going back some time on their caution. So I think that the intelligence community is confidence that he works for Russia is quite high. So Matt from Your Perspective and background with the US intelligence community having worked as the top lawyer the NSA. What does this tell us about how we should look at the emails? The reporting that the New York Post has put out there about hunter, Biden and his business dealings in Ukraine and China? I, mean I think. The really remarkable reporting from chain his colleagues at the Washington Post is part of a broader story here and largely corroborates the concern.

And then, of course, the FBI, never verifying it but signing four five obligations testifying that it is it is the bulk of information that ensured they would have the ability to spy on the trump campaign, the trump transition team, and the trump presidency. That was all her bought and paid for Russian disinformation. And here we are fifteen days out and these big tech companies have liability protection. It's known as section two thirty that Shields Social Media Company from liability that would otherwise reshape or crush their business model and the president escalated this push recently in light of what facebook is now doing twitter is doing stuff we've known about and been covering now for a while and how they treat conservatives in the double standard that exists. Miranda Devine is a columnist for the New York Post as an also joining US Julie. Kelley. political commentator author of disloyal opposition, how the never trump bright tried and failed to take down the president Welcome. Both of YOU MIRANDA I mean they won't even they won't even allow the New York. Post. Story. To be printed New York Post is what in the top five in terms of circulation in the country? Isn't it? And it's You know the oldest newspaper in the country it's a a scandal. We we now in today five that twitter has blocked out twitter account the in post twitter account they they looked it on. Wednesday because they said, it violated their rules against distributing hacked material. We haven't distributed hat material. This is not hacked wha what I know if he's tweeted. Talking about and yet five days. Later they refused unlock our account unless we delete a mouth promoting Allah magician news stories unbelievable. So now, but now did they ever force any of the mainstream media mob from taking down their stories about the phony Donald, trump, Russia collusion story, or their phony narrative on General Flynn or you know how many other hoaxes would they peddling? The rainy and from Donald Trump's lake I know tax returns or Malania trump's. Eavesdropped phone calls that CNN was spreading around on social. Media. New York, times Washington Post they can do whatever they like. But when it comes to the new cars we get throttled are. Get looked and you know it's more important just. then. You know we're not getting distributed on this social media platforms. What that does is it sends a signal to the rest of the media which doesn't want to cover this story. Anyway they're running protection for the Biden's anyway there early in the tank for the Biden campaign just like take social media, but it just allows them to have cover to say all. Well, if if twitter and facebook think that the New York Post stories terrible then we will we will think terrible food. So now they're running stories saying that it's Russian disinformation, which is a joke. It has nothing to do with it. As John Ratcliffe said today in response to Adam Schiff, claiming that that story came from the Kremlin. I mean it's a pure it's ridiculous. It's just Hunter Biden lock talk and you know it's five days and Joe. Biden won't know hunter. Biden. Nor the campaign have ever denied that this is hunted buttons laptop and all the emails and older material that we've published just genuine. Very, very important.

It's a felony for a public official of vice president of the United States, for example, confer a benefit granting billion dollars in USA to a foreign government Ukraine in exchange for something. To himself or a relative in this particular case Greg? We this is the insanity of all of impeachment is there really was a quid pro quo. There really was zero experience hunter there really was a demand to fire the prosecutor leveraging a billion tax dollars. You know we knew that from the beginning, we didn't know about the First Lady of Moscow's three and a half million. We didn't know about the Catholic oligarch wiring money. We didn't know how deep the ties went to Chinese nationals and the Communist Party and even the military officials with the Bank of China deal or the shopping spree that would that now is being reported I mean this this is a family corruption. Enterprise, if all of this turns out to be true, it is and and the current FBI Director Christopher Ray continues to cover this up Sean. You know as you well know I've long called for his termination he must be fired any must be fired. Now President Trump must act. The truth will never be exposed, and till Christopher Ray is sacked from his job as director of the FBI he is James Comey disguise. He's ruthless he's unscrupulous. He's unprincipled. He's corrupt and you know my only gripe with President trump is that he hasn't fired Christopher Ray. My Second Gripe would be appointing Christopher Ray but it's It's long overdue and imagine walking into Christopher Arrays. Office there would be. Trove of evidence of illegality in corruption by Joe. Biden and Hunter Biden. Who is nothing more than a griffin? They were on the take they were accepting money from foreign sources and and that's a influence-peddling it's corruption but it's got all of these major institutional forces John Solomon and that is there really weren't a lot of us that would digging deep that ultimately found out all that we did about Hillary's dirty Russian misinformation dossier and. The fact that they knew all along that it was not verifiable and the fact that they they knew in early. January that the source that was used by Christopher Steele was to was known to the FBI for over a decade of being a Russian asset. So all of this happened and allowed it to happen anyway I didn't think anything like that can happen. This seems to rival that entire enterprise on on on steroids almost here at. Joe Goes into hiding for a week with just seventeen days or fifteen days to go to election day. You saw white right on Friday night when the CBS reporter tried to ask him about it at the at the plane stop in Michigan Vice President attack the reporter for asking the question. On President Trump has asked the question, the answers that question Joe Biden has not been willing to answer the question and I think the problem is he doesn't have an answer for this and you look at the Biden family when hundred binds payday started coming in and twenty, thirteen and twenty fourteen. Right? That's when the China deal comes in. Then the Burris Madeo comes in. Joe Biden is up to debt in the in a big way. He's got a negative vie balance sheet of larger loans and income coming in larger debts. He's got a home equity line of credit. He's got a large.

So Dow, that's that's just the Grassley and Ron Johnson report. Now you've got this. Okay. Is it valid now? Most politicians. If if you said, you had hunter Biden's hard-drive think about this for a minute I've only been briefed by somebody that says they sought. I have not seen it so I cannot independently verify it. But it's now being reported by the New York Post by the way, the country's oldest newspaper now. One of the I think it's the fifth largest in terms of distribution in the in the country. And they are reporting these emails among other things, their publishing pictures of of Hunter, Biden with a crack pipe in his mouth while he's in bed asleep passed out clearly from smoking crack now either you deny it. or You have your lawyer, send out a cease and desist or going to sue the crap out of you if it's not true none of which has happened. None of none of that has happened. The only thing we've learned is that. In the case of of they just say it's not true. Well, we couldn't possibly had contact with the guy from berea smuts It wasn't on his calendar that doesn't mean anything of the pictures of hunter or not of hunter are they manufactured they fake or they doctored? Yes or no? You'd have a right to know can you explain this three and a half million dollar wire from the First Lady of Moscow this Russian oligarch? Can you explain the hundred and forty thousand dollars wire transfer earmarked for a new car with this Kosic Oligarch? Can you explain this this? This expensive shopping spree with a Chinese national. Can You explain why Joe leveraged a billion taxpayer dollars to get a? Prosecutor fired six hours, which he successfully did that we now know is investigating zero experience hunter being paid millions can we not get answers to any of these questions because it seems like in spite of Joe saying the one thing that he knew nothing about his son's business dealings, all these emails show that in fact, Joe knew all about it even going as far. Now, we're also talking about illegal. Let's call it underage. Videos and pictures. That might be a part of this. Now, we have the question of. Ron Johnson is re written director ray of the FBI who I've been impressed with at all as he's not shown me any willingness that he wants to clean up the world's Premier Law Enforcement Agency, which is so sad for the ninety nine percent of rank and file agents, the bust, their ass, every day and and are proud of what they do and do everything by the book, and they risk their lives to protect all of us. That's all. Now we can't even ask Joe Question Joe is even leaving his house at this point. And Rightly House Republicans are calling on a for a special prosecutor to probe the Biden family corruption allegations and I think the attorney general needs to now seriously consider doing it. You Have House Republicans demanding to know from director Ray okay. Did you really have this hard drive to you have this hard drive? Can you confirm what is on the hard drive is accurate and true? Can you tell the American people because I think that's something they probably would need to know or want to know. Before they vote in this election although twenty eight, million Americans apparently have already voted. So we don't get it..

"The the it's complete home to home turf for Joe Biden. And is complete home team and away team for Donald Trump. He went into very treacherous, very uncertain ground and territory and held zone, and yet Joe Biden has yet to do a singular interview where he has been asked in recent months direct questions about Hunter Biden's international business dealings direct questions about specifically. Will you pack the court? He says, I, mean, I'm GonNa read you what he wrote. I am open to considering what happens from that point on. The best equivalent would be you know. Let's get married, and once we get married I'm GonNa tell you how I really feel. I'm sorry. What like that? It's kind of part of the whole construct of.

And how he's going to govern and that's exactly how he did govern over the last couple of years the Democrats have become the corporatist party. This is one of President Donald Trump's. Greatest Openings Against the Democrat Party that has been misrepresenting and betraying the base of the Democrat Party for the last couple of decades the Democrat Party was traditionally made of working class white voters and ethnic minorities and energized young people that was traditionally the coalition of the Democrat Party that is the only way that they are able to win national elections how Bill Clinton wanted nineteen nineties the nineteen, thousand, nine, hundred, ninety, two, and nineteen, ninety-six. Rock. Obama won in two, thousand, eight and two, thousand twelve when the main reasons why President Donald Trump won in two, thousand, sixteen is he took working class whites off the table and the Democrat Party has done very little try to win them back now Joe Biden has tried to voice support to try to win back the carpenters, the Labor Union members, the people that work with their hands to put it simply the people that shower before work and shower after work.

CNN Washington Times I'm sorry Washington Post, New York Times, remember the Americans get their news from social media more than any other place. Think about that nearly half get it from facebook alone not that facebook is producing the news but people share stories, people read it from there. So when twitter and facebook both the side that you can't see this story and on top of. In terms of the New York, post story with Hunter Biden on top of that if you share the story, if you re tweeted, we're going to eliminate your account. We're GONNA lock you out and prevent you from sharing any more information as we saw with the White House Press Secretary Kelly Mac, and any, and even the trump campaign. So even George Orwell's looking down on this and saying, this is even extreme even for what I thought, it was gonna be like in one, thousand, nine, hundred, four. This is very chilling dangerous stuff and the problem is the media doesn't seem to. Care that much we saw the nightly newscast last night it was barely covered and when it was covered, it was from the perspective of the Biden campaign in service of just dismissing it nothing to see here it's just a gambit by the trouble.

The repeal of two-thirty would come way too late You know some Republicans have already been trying that over the past few years unsuccessfully, but it seems like the bigger the greater legal recourse would be to slap them with agreed GIS campaign finance violations up to hundreds of millions of dollars in in kind direct donations they're making the Biden Campaign Democrat Party well I mean. Look I'll take. Cruises. Position I I have no idea. I've not have all this information. Myself that the New York Post has I don't have the hard drive but I did see the pictures that they showed.

You heard this guy that founded at this shop. I. Mean I have no idea where this all came from. Joe But the question is, how do they get to decide?

Went into this and by the way if we're not reporting on things or we can't share stories about hacker stolen materials, how does the trump tax historic? To New York Times, just a couple of weeks ago, and you might want to read about this thing called the Pentagon papers some time from nineteen seventy one as far as leaked or illegal information getting out at least that was the perspective, a perspective of of the Nixon White House. So look at the bottom line is this shouldn't be a right wing story or a left. Wing Story. This is an American story, and if you're the press right now, hearing all these all these facts now coming out about hundred buying, you should be two things pissed off and curious, and instead it's suppression because they're trying to push the seventy-seven-year-old candidate over the finish line with nineteen days to go. But that's been the story for the whole campaign has an Joe Contra. Joe Doesn't want even tell us tell us if he's going to pack the courts he's not even been asked about DC, statehood or other states. He's not been asked about how many millions of people are you willing to give amnesty to We're talking now literally about what would be the biggest power grab in history And he doesn't ask questions. He puts a lid on his campaign Juliet Nine thirty most mornings at least every other day when he does go out for one day or two days, they ended up being verbal Gaffe Disaster Days for him upright and got the media's doing a great job social media and regular media running interference for him. He called a LID yesterday morning noon as this these stories went viral and he let his silicon. Valley. Oligarchs for the Democratic Party, do his dirty work for him He used to have a town hall meeting I believe tonight. The thing is the great part about being Joe Biden or Democrat, is that he knows that he's not gonNA face tough questions about this. Already. The media's discrediting it calling it a Russian disinformation campaign. He knows he will be protected. You know by the Washington Post and CNN he won't face any tough questions but this information is there is the the funny part. The irony is by what twitter and facebook you did yesterday they actually amplified the story. So it's hard for any average American to avoid reading this apparently, there's more bombshells calm. But look big TEX interferences not just before the election they have a whole plan for what they plan to do after election day to prolong this our misery into. January twenty twenty one. To silence the president there already banning content or criticism about mail in balloting they're gonNA prevent any candidate from declaring victory including the president. So they have an entire plan underway. We're just getting a glimpse of it now and luckily, thanks to what they did. This week Americans can't ignore it anymore. I don't think Americans can ignore it anymore. But what they were you're describing is a prescription for absolute chaos in this country. And I shudder to think what happens now I, will tell you the fact that they will ignore the fact that he is weak and frail and cognitively struggling. You know I had somebody mentioned to me yesterday Joe Concert that they. They can't see Joe Biden if he continues this precipitous decline. Even finishing out the first year there are polls showing that sixty percent of Americans don't think he'd be able to out his term we really even paying enough attention.
"hunter biden" Discussed on The Sean Hannity Show
"If all these pictures on this on this hard drive again I'm I'm like Ted Cruz here I have no idea of any of this is true. I have I'm just I'm just looking at what the New York Post pictures shows. It shows Hunter Biden passed out with a crack pipe in his mouth I mean good grief. And the things that I am told that are also on there are beyond shocking. again, been able to independently. Corroborate any of this, but it's being reported everywhere. And Biden's national press secretary going so far to claim that. One of America's largest newspapers makes clear. That the US. Relations documents from one hundred button hard drive is not true. That's not what it makes clear at all. It just means that they hate, Donald Trump. And they're trying to censor information that the American voter should have the right to determine themselves and other words that they are putting their finger on the on the balance of of News and information in favor of the Biden campaign as an in-kind massive the largest donation that any campaign would ever get in the history of this country. And that also would violate well, the rule two-thirty thirty provisions that protect these companies. No American voters do not deserve an answer only from Joe Biden unbelievable I don't take any glee in any of this. I. Look I'm going to be very blunt here. Apparently C. Span is now suspended their political editor Steve scully indefinitely after that, he lied about his twitter feed being hacked I. Guess he was bought he was direct messaging or whatever you call it private messaging Anthony Scaramucci about how he should respond to Donald Trump. And he got caught I mean everybody does this. Now we're I. Think Linda Tell me if I'm wrong. We're the only ones that I know that officially didn't get a letter saying we that not that we were hacked but we were compromised right from twitter. You got something that in writing this goes back in time ago before you took away my passwords and don't let me go on like I'm still I still in time timeout over this but whatever. That's right. Yeah. No he you know they. We admitted that that somehow that there was a compromise on my twitter account, they admit they roar and hold compromise. You are fortunate to have an amazing team that completely foiled any attemps. But yes I, had a relationship at one point with some people over at twitter and they have from time to time when there's issues and people are doing what we call you know. Selective media editing, which happens a lot on twitter to spread disinformation and I say you know guys this is really agree just we need to stop and they will they'll handle it. But lately, unfortunately, it has been less than more of them helping you know Greg Jarrett just something a column that he wrote a facebook and twitter censorship is an insult to democracy they've got to stop or be broken up he's not wrong. I mean, if they become that big in that powerful and if they're going to decide that they WANNA push one political candidate over another How much power they going to be allowed to have especially when given these protections on liability issues? They will way too much market place. You can't own a radio station at TV station in a newspaper in the same market. There's always been these these roles now. I I always felt in the end it was going to be used to silence any conservative voices, but there aren't many of us anyway. Oh, this is just breaking by the way out in. Arizona that I saw in the race with Martha mcsally and mark. Kelly, he's got his own issues out there doesn't he involving China and there's a lot. There's a lot of news out of the Arizona Race and you know he's got a lot of friends with deep pockets that would love for him to get there so that they could have control of that state. To and I, think that's what you're saying is that there are a lot of people pushing a lot of money into races like Lindsey, Graham says no exception either and what's happened to doing it to Tillis doing to Joni Ernst to Cory Gardner the doing it to Martha mcsally that even doing it to Mitch McConnell. They're doing it to purdue who was on the other day they're they're doing it to Lindsay, they're doing it to everybody. Doing to Susan Collins of Maine The Washington Free Beacon broke the story that the campaign spokesman for a Democratic Senate candidate Mark Kelly referred to the police as worthless effing pigs. On twitter. In August I guess he's GonNa Claim he was hacked to. According to the press he really is a good thing. You've taken away all my social media. Because, I have no access to anything anymore. I have like five minders that have to I have to go through to get anything up there. It is a good they in quite frankly the the the platform is is. It it's just there's so much fake news and the problem is and I say this all the time we talk about it a lot amongst ourselves and our friends and family to is that there's so much information. It's too much for anyone person nobody can dissect it, and at the end of the day, they care about three main things and that's paying their mortgage putting gas in their car feeding their kids and that's it. It's very simple and their healthcare. You know and it's it's funny because you know what liberals do is they always want silence conservatives and by the way I never believed joy Reid when she was trying to make the same Kinda case back in the day and media, it was pampering or pretty hard. And I said you know what? She should be given a chance to and chief by. I. She has no love for Sean Hannity. There's nobody in media that's ever stuck up for me when when all these attempts to silence my voice take place not that I you know I don't expect anything from anybody, but it's happened a bunch not one liberal ever speaks out and says, you know what? You may not like Hannity's opinion but you know he has a right to have his opinion. They go along and edge just like they don't care. Liberals do not care about Hillary Clinton's obstruction. They didn't care about what it was a dirty Russian bought and paid for dossier. They don't care that they will warned not to trust Christopher Steele they don't care that the FBI knew that steals source was a known Russian operatives for ten years. They don't care about any of this. They don't care about Hunter Biden they don't care about Ukraine. They don't care about a real quid pro quo. They don't care about zero experience hunter. They don't care about the Russian oligarchs, the Ukrainian oligarchy, the Kazuo Oligarchy, the Russian nationals, Ukrainian nationals, Kazic nationals, Chinese nationals they don't care about the Bank of China. They don't care about Burris Mahal only if it's how sick and ugly is what Donald Trump..
"hunter biden" Discussed on Post Reports
"Been a lobbyist for clients with interests before Congress when his father was the US senator he had been a vice president at bank. That was a major contributor to his father. He was as a board member or a company backed by Chinese entities what his father was doing policy with Beijing. My name is Michael. Kranish a political investigative reporter at the Washington Post and then he joined the board of this company in Ukraine Berea at a time when his father was talking about gas policy in Ukraine so there's just a number of factors and incidents where Hunter Biden is doing business when his father's interests might also be raised in a phone call in July president trump asked Ukrainian president of a load of marriage Alinsky to look into just to that he wanted to know whether Joe Biden had asked Ukrainian Indian officials to end an investigation may have involved his son hunter that call was the subject of a whistle or complaint that became public last month and it's at the center of an impeachment inquiry into the president press reports began to break of a phone call by the president of the United States calling upon a foreign power were to intervene in his election. This is a breach of his constitutional responsibilities on Thursday trump doubled down on his is accusations against the Biden's so I would say that presidents Alinsky were me. I would recommend that they start an investigation the Biden because nobody has any doubts that they weren't crooked that was crooked deal one hundred percents so in two thousand fourteen when Hunter Biden saying that he's going to join the board of Barack Obama did Joe Biden say anything about that. Do we have any knowledge. He talked to one hundred bite in or that he he tried to dissuade him from taking up the struck. Well both Biden's at some point had said they didn't talk to each other about this. However hundred told The New Yorker Magazine earlier this year that his father said to him. I hope you know what you're doing and hundred responded I do and they say that's all there was that there was no further conversation. There are plenty of folks out there. Who say wait. There should have been some conversation. Joe Biden knowing his son had joined the company. He says he found out about it. According to his spokesman from media reports not Hunter Biden directly might have said something saying you know this could cause appearance problems this might also complicate the efforts of Joe Biden to urge Ukraine to crack down corruption. Do you have a sense of what hundred job actually entailed or as a board member. What was it just kind of showing up for meetings a few times uh-huh a year or advising the company on their business moves when this position for Hunter Biden was announced the company put out a press release saying he would oversee their legal unit senate. We'll hunter Biden at his representative said that actually didn't happen that he was on the board to use his expertise on transparency quote unquote governance of the things like that. I talked to another board member former president of Poland who told me hundred Biden's expertise was not in gas technology. It was about international politics for example. It's it's not really clear exactly what he did. They had a couple of board meetings a year. Sometimes they were in a place such as Monaco and we don't know what hundred Biden was paid exactly there have been various reports based on some records unrelated court case that have said some people have interpreted as meaning up to fifty thousand dollars in some months that he was paid. That's not one hundred percent clear earlier. I asked the lawyer for Hunter Biden in writing numerous times in July and then again for the story that ran a few days ago how much hunter Biden make basically basically the lawyer said that's a private matter. We're not gonNA tell you what exactly did Hunter Biden. Do I asked the lawyer as far as helping the company of his job. What we know is is that what the statement says and that he was supposed to help and transparency in government so we don't have specific examples of what he did and they're not saying exactly how much he was paid and then at what point does Burris MMA this Ukrainian company become mired in controversy well there is this overall effort in in Ukraine where people say there's a lot of corruption all over the place. There are various domestication's that have gone on there. Were prosecutors who were looking at various. Things and I want to be fair here. Because in the the end the company was not itself charged with wrongdoing but clearly there were investigations that were going on. There were some freezing of accounts that were then unfrozen the the prosecutor general early on name Victor Shokhin told us in July that he was interested in looking into the company and also wanted to ask Hunter Biden some questions now a key part of the story. I mentioned two part story part. One is wanted Hunter Biden. Get this job part. Two is the allegation by President trump and his personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani that Biden came over to Ukraine and basically stopped this prosecutor from an investigation into the company and his own son so at at this point. Is there any evidence to support what it seems that president trump and Rudy Giuliani are alleging that there was something thing untoward either about hunter. Bite into role in this company or about Joe Biden actions in doing foreign policy in Ukraine is not been proven. It's not been substantiated that Joe Biden got the prosecutor fire to avoid having his son be nice to get it when you think back to the moment when Hunter Biden is agreeing to take on this role in Ukraine just a few weeks after his father had gone there on a foreign policy visit and when he had these people blur around him Roy Moore warning him. Maybe this isn't a great idea. This has an appearance of conflict of interest. I wonder if the thing that they were worried about was something that kind of looks like this current moment that it wasn't just about well. Would you be doing something corrupt by during the board of this Ukrainian company but that it just gives off this appearance that would ultimately become a problem for both Hunter Biden and for his father other well there are people who look at conflict of interest in with say. Maybe it's inevitable there'd be questions raised about this if you go on the board of a company in Ukraine and your father is basically shepherding the US policy in the region in the country and also on the gas business which is what Hunter Biden was so you know we also raise a lot of questions about trump and his own businesses and that his children's businesses and so forth so you know these all seem like very legitimate questions to ask a lot of different politicians Biden's and the trump's as well as for the better what trump has raised alleging that Joe Biden got the prosecutor fired essentially so that his son would not be investigated. That's something that has has not been substantiated. Michael Kranish is an investigative reporter on the Post Politics Desk ice-cream.
