A recent news story has been circulating this week about Joe Biden’s alleged ties to Hunter Biden’s business concerns overseas. Rudy Giuliani, who in past months has been bashed around by the media and politicians for his ties to Russia, is, very interestingly, once again at the center of the problem. Giuliani, whose constant lying is compounded by the fact that his remarks have gone public, might not be exactly the reliable source we may have been looking for. Yet, Biden’s connections to his son’s business has been recorded extensively. It is not, then, safe to assume that all of this may be just a simple case of a Russian disinformation story.
According to Anthony Bobulinski, Hunter Biden’s former business partner, Joe Biden knew about a planned venture with a Chinese energy company. Mr. Bobulinski further noted that Biden was present in a meeting with his son in 2017 were they discussed the proposed plan with the Chinese energy company. Biden and his campaign have outright rejected these claims. However much the rejection of this information may mean, one thing stands out. That is that Biden certainly must have known at least something about his son’s own plan. Biden, naturally, in the middle of a strong campaign, cannot afford to even surrender one piece of territory.
Fifty former intelligence officials have signed a letter declaring the whole email findings to be most likely part of a Russian disinformation campaign against the former vice-president. Most media outlets have taken this as an assurance for the American people that this is a case closed. Just another conspiracy created by the conservative right and the Trump campaign’s final push for victory. It is important to read what these intelligence officials are stating. None of them safely confirmed and authenticated with certainty that Russia is involved. They specifically said they were “deeply suspicious” and one of them even went as far commenting that “If we are right… [Russia is influencing the way Americans vote in the election].” The language emanating from these intelligence experts is not exactly what the rest of the media is trying to promote. The letter is inconclusive. As for the veracity of these emails, an official investigation has not been made and probably there never will be one. However, Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) says his staff has authenticated the emails. All that can be done at this point is wait.
