Hunter Biden has come under attack again after the discharge of a video that purportedly shows the president’s son telling a lady that Russians had stolen one among his laptops for blackmail. The clip, obtained by the Daily Mail, shows Hunter Biden telling an unidentified sex worker in January 2019 about an event the previous year: when he was passed call at a pool in Las Vegas and a computer was stolen from him by Russian drug dealers.
In the lead-up to the 2020 election won by his father Joe Biden, a variety of damaging stories emerged after Hunter Biden reportedly left a special laptop at a Delaware repair shop—an incident he has said he doesn’t remember. The Mail reports that the January 2019 video was filmed on the Delaware laptop. If Hunter Biden’s account of the 2018 incident is accurate, this is able to mean he had lost three computers likely to contain sensitive information: one in Las Vegas, one in Delaware, and one reportedly seized by federal agents.
“They have videos of me doing this,” he said during the video, which lasts 3 minutes and 40 seconds. “They’d attempt to blackmail you?” she asked. Hunter Biden replied: “Yeah, in how, yeah.” A number of conservative commentators and lawmakers are discussing the Mail report on social media. Former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee shared the article and mentioned prominent Democratic lawmakers involved in the impeachment of former President Donald Trump. “Don’t fret America! ‘Feng Feng’ Swalwell & ‘Adam the Schiff’ will launch hearings!” he tweeted. “Bob Mueller is going to be brought back & given $35 million to research RUSSIAN COLLUSION!” Huckabee added, pertaining to the probe into claims of Russian interference within the U.S. election.
Nick Adams, a writer and founding father of the organization 1FlagUSA, tweeted: “Will someone please tell Hunter Biden to place his clothes on!?” Mollie Hemingway, a journalist at The Federalist, tweeted: “Corrupt American media who manically pushed ludicrous 2016 Russia hoax put all hands on deck to rig 2020 election by violently suppressing Hunter Biden laptop story.” Political commentator Liz Wheeler told her 545,000 Twitter followers: “Remember that point Twitter & Facebook CENSORED Hunter Biden laptop stories before the election claiming it had been fake news,” she tweeted, “all the while Hunter Biden admits during a sex tape video that the Russians stole ANOTHER laptop from him in 2018 for blackmail? Broadcaster Don O’Donnell tweeted: “After four long years, I’m so glad we have a primary Family with dignity again.” In his Fox news program on Wednesday, anchor Sean Hannity mentioned the report and asked why the authorities were taking goodbye to research the president’s son.
Claiming that three sources had told him there have been compromising pictures on this computer, Hannity said the FBI had “been in possession of those laptops for quite a while .” “My question is, why has it not been revealed now?’ Hannity said. “Why has there been no arrest at this point?” Although Hunter Biden doesn’t mention shooting up in his account of the alleged Las Vegas incident, he has been open before his struggles with drug abuse. In an interview to market his memoir Beautiful People, he said he couldn’t even remember if he had left the laptop with the Delaware repairman. Newsweek has contacted Hunter Biden’s lawyer and therefore the White House for comment.
