Hunter Biden is finally speaking out about the laptop that was the center of the New York Post’s exposé on him ahead of the 2020 election, and he’s not confirming or denying its authenticity, as he’s apparently the only person on the planet unaware of the contents on their own computer
Big tech practically conspired to censorship the original NY Post reporting ahead of the 2020 election, with Twitter locking them out of their account, and both Twitter and Facebook taking efforts to throttle the spread of the story. Anecdotally I’ve noticed that Hunter Biden related stories published here on Bongino.com tend to still underperform massively on Facebook relative to the average story, but perform regularly or better than average on other platforms such as Parler, indicating that Facebook is still trying to keep a lid on any mention of Hunter.
Twitter’s Trojan Horse for censoring the story was claiming that it violated their “hacked materials rules,” while Facebook claimed they wanted to prevent the spread of “potentially false information.” Of course, if a network were to limit “potentially false information” consistently, that would effectively require them to limit the spread of most news. After all, most new news has the potential to be wrong (and often is when it’s coming from leftists).
Among those who won’t call the Hunter Biden laptop story fake news, however, is Hunter Biden.
As the New York Post reported:
Hunter Biden said the laptop at the center of The Post’s explosive exposé last year “absolutely” could belong to him, he revealed in an interview Friday.
In a sitdown with CBS’s “Sunday Morning,” President Biden’s embattled son was pointedly asked “yes or no” if the MacBook Pro that was dropped off at a Delaware computer repair shop in April 2019 was in fact his.
“I really don’t know what the answer is, that’s the truthful answer,” Hunter Biden said in an excerpt of the interview released on Friday, before adding, “I have no idea.”
But asked whether it could have belonged to him, he replied, “Absolutely.”
“Certainly, there could be a laptop out there that was stolen from me. It could be that I was hacked, it could be that it was Russian intelligence. It could be that it was stolen from me,” he continued.
The interview was part of the book tour for his new memoir “Beautiful Things,” which comes out next week.
In another recent interview, Hunter addressed his work for the Ukrainian company Burisma, simultaneously reiterating that he did nothing wrong while saying that he wouldn’t repeat his work for them. An odd stance to take for a man who did nothing wrong, for sure.
