Rule Five Hunter’s Laptop Friday

Started this week off with American Thinker, so let’s end it the same way.  Today it’s this:  The question is when, not if, Hunter Biden’s laptop will bring down Joe Biden’s presidency.  Excerpts, with my comments, follow:

Thanks to a series of leaks from the hard drive of Hunter Biden’s abandoned laptop computer, we know there is more than enough evidence to appoint a special counsel, or at least convene a grand jury to investigate bribery, tax fraud, and probably several other categories of crime involving the Biden Crime Family.  Three recent articles by highly respected reporters Miranda Devine (who has a book on the subject about to come out and whose work informs the other two writers), Byron York, and Emily Jashinsky present evidence typed in Hunter’s own hand of the schemes whereby Hunter acted as the bagman collecting vast wealth from foreign interests by selling access to Joe when he was vice president and a potential candidate for the presidency.

And you heard it here first (well, probably not first, but I’ve been saying it for a while) – Joe Biden has been using his crack-head son to launder bribe money, and it’s been going on for decades.

All three accounts are worth reading, though there is considerable overlap.  From Devine, here is an example of evidence that already ought to have led to a subpoena for financial records:

Hunter complained that he was forced to give half his salary to his father.

“I hope you all can do what I did and pay for everything for this entire family for 30 years,” Hunter wrote in a 2019 text message to his daughter, Naomi, that was found on his abandoned laptop.

“It’s really hard. But don’t worry, unlike Pop [Joe], I won’t make you give me half your salary.”

There’s no direct evidence of such a wealth transfer on Hunter’s laptop.

This may not be exactly a smoking gun.  We’d need bank records for that.  But this is certainly enough to start an investigation.  And, with a little digging into Crack-Head Hunter’s finances, we might learn some very interesting things indeed.

Here’s the onion:

It is far from clear how many copies of Hunter’s hard drive are in the hands of others, and far from clear who is orchestrating the leaks. But what is absolutely clear is that Biden’s presidency could be brought to its knees, possibly even ended, if the media gatekeepers at the New York Times and Washington Post decided to give the story enthusiastic coverage, bringing the rest of the agitprop along with them. They could agitate for the appointment of a special counsel, as was done with President Trump over the nonsense Russiagate fake scandal.

Or a U.S. attorney who convened a grand jury could issue subpoenas and eventually obtain indictments, setting the stage for impeachment.

We understand why none of this is happening — yet. Biden is serving his purpose, appointing officials and signing executive orders that advance the progressives’ agenda. But the drip, drip, drip continues and accumulates.

And this, True Believers, is where American Thinker and I part ways.

Sure, there’s a drip, drip, drip – and not just onto President Biden’s evening bib.  But the legacy media will continue to studiously ignore this, no matter how egregious it gets.  Democrats will continue to run interference, not matter how egregious it gets.  The GOP will dither and in the end do nothing, no matter how egregious it gets.  We have a senile, corrupt machine politician in the Imperial Mansion, nobody knows for sure who’s pulling the levers, the Overton Window keeps moving, and there’s likely no going back.
