The New York Times finally conceded this week that a controversial laptop that made headlines ahead of the 2020 race for the White House once belonged to the President’s son, Hunter Biden.
From Fox News:
A Wednesday report by The New York Times confirmed the authenticity of Hunter Biden’s infamous laptop, which was left in a Delaware repair shop in 2019 by the first son before being turned over to the FBI by the repair shop owner.
The new Times report, which was flagged by The New York Post and focused on the investigation into Hunter Biden’s taxes and his international business dealings, noted prosecutors had examined emails between Biden and some business associates that “appear to have come from a laptop abandoned by Mr. Biden in a Delaware repair shop” and “were authenticated by people familiar with them and with the investigation.”
Previously, The Times dismissed the Biden laptop story as “Russian disinformation” at the height of the 2020 presidential campaign and claimed in a September 2021 piecethat The Post’s reporting on the laptop was “unsubstantiated.” It later scrubbed the word from the article after intense backlash over its inaccurate characterization of The Post’s reporting.
According to The Post, Hunter Biden’s laptop contained emails, text messages, photos and financial documents between himself, his family and business associates that showed how he used his political influence in his foreign business dealings, specifically in his work as a board member of Burisma Holdings, a Ukrainian energy company.
