FALSEHOOD #40: Biden falsely claimed that the story about his son’s laptop was “a bunch of garbage.”
Biden, in reference to the New York Post’s story about his son’s laptop, said, “There are 50 former national intelligence folks who said that what he’s accusing me of is a Russian plant. Five former heads of the CIA, both parties, say what he’s saying is a bunch of garbage. Nobody believes it except his good friend Rudy Giuliani.”
EXPLANATION: Before the 2020 election, the New York Post had broken a story of then-US presidential candidate Joe Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, likely being involved in a major corruption scandal with his oversea business dealings.
Biden falsely claimed that the story was “a bunch of garbage.”
It was confirmed that the laptop and it’s contents did belong to Hunter Biden. The contents on the laptop potentially point to criminal activity.
Joe Biden, the mainstream media, and social media companies were responsible for misleading the public about this vital election information.
New York Post columnist Miranda Devine said, “I think it’s a complicated story and it has been ignored by The New York Times and The Washington Post. I mean, the media organizations with the enormous resources that can put a sort of 15 reporters on a story about Ron DeSantis sending 50 illegal migrants to Martha’s Vineyard, they have spent the last two years just ignoring this story. And I think it’s a point of pride for them. They don’t want to be seen to have bits corrupt. This is journalistic corruption and malfeasance at its worst. And for The Washington Post, which still runs on the fumes of Watergate, to have ignored not only the story of corruption that’s enormous and has ramifications in Washington beyond Joe Biden, beyond the Democratic Party, but also the cover-up. Like with Watergate, the cover-up is now as big as the original corruption story, and they’ve ignored that as well.”
Had the public known about this information, the outcome of the election would have been different.
According to a Rasmussen Reports survey, 62% of voters believe Joe Biden is involved in Hunter Biden’s illegal business dealings.
According to a survey, by the New Jersey-based Technometrica Institute of Policy and Politics, 79% of Americans believe President Donald Trump would have won reelection had voters been accurately informed about Hunter Biden’s laptop.
