A new book by Politico reporter, Ben Schreckinger, confirms that some of the materials uncovered in Hunter Biden’s purported laptop are genuine, including two emails that caused quite a stir last October.
In the book, “The Bidens: Inside the First Family’s Fifty-Year Rise to Power,” an individual who had independent access to Hunter’s emails confirmed he did receive a 2015 email from a Ukrainian businessman thanking him for the chance to meet Joe Biden. The source confirmed a 2017 email in which a proposed venture with Chinese energy executives includes the line, “10 held by H for the big guy?”
Shortly before the election, when the story broke last year, it was promptly censored by mainstream outlets and platforms, including Twitter.
“Big Tech/Dem censorship of this story before the election was a grave assault,” journalist Glenn Greenwald tweeted. Greenwald pointed out that media outlets declared the story “Russian disinformation.”
“It’s so easy to recognize and denounce the censorship, repression and propaganda in distant countries we’re taught from childhood to hate (Russia),” Greenwald wrote. “It’s more difficult — and more important — to recognize it in our own. Pre-election censorship of this story was a disgrace.”
