A reporter’s new book levels serious charges against President Joe Biden’s family, citing information gleaned from a laptop alleged to be Hunter Biden’s.
A MacBook Pro laptop was left at a Delaware repair shop in 2019. John Paul Mac Isaac, the repair shop owner, said a man he cannot identify dropped the laptop off at his shop in April 2019. The man never returned to claim the laptop so Isaac took ownership.
Mr. Isaac downloaded the laptop’s contents. He sent one copy to the Federal Bureau of Investigation and another copy to Rudolph Giuliani, a personal lawyer for President Donald Trump. The report claims Mayor Giuliani shared the data with the New York Post.
The New York tabloid first reported about the contents of a laptop alleged to belong to Robert [aka “Hunter”] Biden in October 2020. The article said emails from Hunter Biden were found where he talked about using his family connection to the vice president to boost his pay from a Ukrainian natural gas company.
Robert Costello, Mr. Giuliani’s lawyer, told Fox News in October 2020 the hard drive contains 40,000 emails, thousands of text messages, photographs and videos, according to the Washington Times, which added Hunter Biden’s attorney has not disputed his client used the laptop.
In April 2020, Biden told CBS News host Tracy Smith the laptop “could be” his. A CBS Sunday Twitter post contains a video portion of the interview with Biden.
Hunter Biden has been accused of profiting from his father’s office by earning a monthly salary worth tens of thousands of dollars per month to be a board member of a company in an industry in which he had no prior experience.
In her recently released book, “Laptop from Hell”, New York Post columnist Miranda Devine adds fuel to the Hunter Biden laptop controversy. She claims the Biden family offered their services to help a huge, Chinese-government-linked energy consortium expand around the world. Ms. Devine said the evidence to back her claims comes from emails contained on the laptop.
The tabloid columnist weaves a tightly-knit narrative intrigue detailing how Hunter Biden allegedly leveraged family connections to construct a pay-to-play scheme that netted him millions.
Devine constructs a compelling case of collusion between the Biden family and the Chinese conglomerate CEFC.
In December 2015, James Gilliar was a friend of CEFC chairman Ye Jianming. Devine said he reached out for help structuring a Chinese joint venture for “one of the most prominent families in the United States.”
“The plan is to ‘build an investment firm like Goldman Sachs, he writes in a WhatsApp message, transcripts of which were obtained separate from the laptop,” Devine wrote, adding Gillar soon disclosed, “The family is the Biden family.”
Devine’s book quotes Gilliar that Vice President Biden had announced that he would not run for president in 2016; he would be actively involved once he left office; and, the Bidens expect billions of dollars of projects to flow through the company.
Gilliar said, in March 2016: the Bidens’ Chinese partner is CEFC, which has “more money than God,” according to Devine’s book.
“This is the capital arm of one belt one road.”
