As the FBI ramps and other federal agencies ramp up its investigation of emails, photos and videos on a laptop reportedly owned by Hunter Biden, Rudy Giuliani says more will be released publicly this week.
News of the existence of the emails, and how they came into the hands of the nation’s oldest and fourth largest newspaper, were detailed last week in a lengthy investigative piece by that paper – the New York Post. Equally as startling as the contents of the emails has been the efforts of big tech to keep them from the public. Facebook has reduced users’ ability to share stories related to the scandal and Twitter has locked out numerous users after they shared the story.
The emails, allegedly show communication about a meeting between former Vice President Joe Biden and a Ukrainian gas official, also include personal emails between the younger Biden and his siblings, outlining how half of all his earnings from foreign entities were then shared with his father Vice President Joe Biden.
“Yes … there’s more coming out,” Giuliani told Fox Business on Monday morning. “There’s more money,” Giuliani said. “There’s some pretty … disgusting things this family was involved with. Really disgusting.” He did not elaborate.
Giuliani said he will not release all of the information at once. The former mayor previously said that he and a team of investigators, including those at the New York Post, took steps to authenticate a laptop hard drive that purportedly belonged to Hunter Biden. Biden’s ownership has been confirmed in numerous ways, including from the fact that Biden’s attorney called the repair shop asking if they would return it.
Neither Biden nor the campaign have disputed the authenticity of the emails. Last week, a spokesman for the Biden campaign denied that a meeting took place between the former vice president and a Ukrainian gas company advisor while he was in office. The NY Post also published several photos of Hunter Biden that were apparently sourced from the hard drive. Sources close to the story say that photos and videos show Hunter Biden engaged in graphic illegal encounters.
Giuliani said the drive contains roughly 800 of Hunter Biden’s personal photos. The New York Post has now made the emails available to other reporters outside the company for additional verification.
The Post conducted its own authentication effort, Giuliani said.
Over the weekend, several Democratic officials scrambled to assert that the reports on the Biden family dealings are part of a Russian disinformation campaign intended to help President Donald Trump.
One of them, Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) said on CNN, “we know that this whole smear on Joe Biden comes from the Kremlin. That’s been clear for well over a year now that they’ve been pushing this false narrative about this vice president and his son.”
But on Monday, Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe said there is no information anywhere within the U.S. intelligence community suggesting that the laptop information is part of a Russian campaign.
“Let me be clear: the intelligence community doesn’t believe that because there is no intelligence that supports that. And we have shared no intelligence with Adam Schiff, or any member of Congress,” he told Fox News.
National news media has given the explosive revelations very little coverage over the last few days with Facebook and Twitter being accused of actively trying to hide the info from users. The Twitter account of the New York Post remains locked until, says Twitter, the company removes a link to the story.
