The thousands of emails compromising Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden and his son Hunter, found on an abandoned laptop, were denied by the candidate, but Hunter’s attempts to retrieve them were reported.
The discovery of the hard drive made public by the New York Post only three weeks before Presidential Election Day, although it had already been in the hands of the FBI for 10 months, caused a great stir in the Democratic campaign.
Big Tech companies Twitter and Facebook rushed to censor its diffusion, and Joe Biden’s big media allies refrained from asking him about the thorny case despite having spoken to him for hours, and his coverage was only a few minutes, in some cases only seconds.
When a journalist finally managed to ask him about the dangerous information, on Oct. 16, Biden called the case a “smear campaign,” and then attacked the reporter.
“I asked Joe Biden, ‘What is your response to the New York Post story about your son, sir?'” asked CBS News’s Bo Erickson, (@BoKnowsNews).
“He called it a ‘smear campaign’ and then went after me. “I know you’d ask it. I have no response, it’s another smear campaign, right up your alley, those are the questions you always ask,” Erickson said in his tweet.

This would not have been so contradictory had it not been for the revelation of President Donald Trump’s personal lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, on Steven Crowder’s podcast on Oct. 15.
According to Giuliani, Hunter Biden’s attorney contacted the computer technician who found the compromising material, and asked that he return the computer hard drive that contained it, according to American Greatness.
Giuliani also spoke about the contents of the hard drive he would have given to the New York Post.
“Hunter Biden and Joe Biden are involved in a bribery scheme in the Ukraine and Hunter Biden and Joe have said for years that Joe knew nothing about Burisma, the company that paid the bribe,” he explained.
“And what we have is a cold, clear text message group where Hunter Biden arranges a meeting with the number two person in that company and Joe Biden, who then sends a text message to Hunter to thank him. So this makes Joe a complete liar for the last seven years. It shows that he met with Burisma,” Giuliani said.
John Paul Mac Isaac, a computer technician based in Wilmington, Delaware, the city where Biden also resides, dismantled the hard drive on which he found Hunter Biden’s emails, and turned the the hard drive over to the FBI.
But first he made a copy for his personal safety and gave it to Robert Costello, Giuliani’s lawyer, who supplied it to the New York Post.
It is striking that the FBI would have done nothing with the serious information, after 10 months, and although the authenticity has not been officially confirmed, a Fox News source assures that it is true.
