Daily Mail: Emails Hunter Only Thought He’d Erased
So much Hunter laptop news, so little time!
“Hunter laptop,” of course, is shorthand for what this story really is: Expansive Biden family corruption and the media’s shameful coverup designed to ensure Joe Biden’s win in 2020.
Don’t be fooled into thinking the media’s sudden readiness to talk about Hunter isn’t part of a plan by those pulling their strings. Right now, most in the media are playing catch-up as they finally acknowledge what you and I have known for many months.
High praise to the New York Post, which broke the story initially in October 2020, and also to the British press, which has covered what most of the American press would not touch.
The Laptop Whistleblower is Still on the Job
DailyMail.com has new information about laptop “whistleblower” Jack Maxey, the man who received Hunter’s hard drive from Rudy Giuliani and gave a copy to the Daily Mail. Out of concerns for his own safety, Maxey, who was co-host of Steve Bannon’s podcast “The War Room,” has reportedly been hiding out the past couple of weeks in Zurich, where he’s working with IT experts to extract more information — emails that supposedly had been deleted. (Considering what Hunter did not delete, it’s impossible even to imagine what he thought he’d better delete!)
Maxey believes that suppression of this material interfered with the election. “The American people were utterly betrayed,” he said.
Maxey said he’d found 400 gigabytes of what Hunter probably assumed had been erased, including 80,000 images and videos (good grief) and more than 120,000 archived emails — “very difficult to reach,” he said — and that he’ll be posting them all online in a searchable database in the coming weeks.
Concerns About the FBI
His original intention, he said, was to make copies of this material available to the U.S. Congress and Senate and to law enforcement. But he has a big concern about the FBI:
It appears that the FBI agent that picked up Hunter’s laptop and those he was associated with never filed [it] into evidence at the FBI…The FBI received the laptop on the 9th of December 2019, but they actually were informed of its existence earlier.
He’s seen no confirmation that they’ve done anything at all with it. “As far as I can tell, the trial in Delaware’s about taxes,” he said. “It’s not about abusing children; it’s not about trafficking women. It’s not about putting in jail all the crack dealers all across America who Hunter used to keep his habit up.” (Watch the video at the link to see what he says about the hypocrisy of Joe Biden’s crack law that has incarcerated so many black men, when Hunter never got prosecuted.)
The Laptop Was Out There — And Everyone Sat On It
Maxey said that in the spring of 2021, when he approached the Daily Mail, he also gave copies and material from the hard drive to The Washington Post, New York Times, and Sen. Chuck Grassley, the ranking Republican on the Senate Judiciary Committee, and that they all, even Grassley, sat on it for months. “No news organizations [except the Daily Mail] would take it,” he said.

According to Maxey, after he contacted the Daily Mail about the laptop, black Suburban SUVs appeared outside his house, and former U.S. intel officers with whom he’d shared copies told him they were getting “strange calls.”
Friends “were making welfare calls to me every day,” he said, “basically to see if I was still alive.” He said he posted some of the newly-recovered material to file sharing sites, and it was there for about an hour before being taken down — he suspects by our intelligence services, but Daily Mail has not been able to verify this.
The American People Were Betrayed
Maxey believes that suppression of this material interfered with the election. “The American people were utterly betrayed,” he said, “because I guarantee you that Joe Biden couldn’t run for dog catcher if [they] knew about this laptop.”

Sleazy ‘Biden, Inc.’ and the Dark Hole
FOX News reported Wednesday that according to emails, “Big Guy” Joe Biden wrote a letter of recommendation in 2017 for the son of one of Hunter’s Chinese business partners — you know, the Chinese business partners that Joe never knew anything about — to help him get into Brown University.
As you know, the grand jury in Delaware has asked one of Hunter’s business associates about the identity of the “Big Guy.”
White House press secretary Jen Psaki, when asked about the letter by FOX News’ Peter Doocy, dismissed his question by saying Biden was “a private citizen” at the time he wrote the letter, but that’s not the point. Biden has said he knew nothing of his son’s business ventures, but to write the letter, he had to know Hunter was a partner of this Chinese businessman.

Wisconsin Sen. Ron Johnson noted on Wednesday’s Hannity that President Biden gifted the CCP by, for example, canceling the China Initiative, which was to look into college students and professors who might be stealing intellectual property. Johnson called the whole situation “sleazy” and “corrupt,” but saved his most serious concerns for the cooperation of the mainstream media and the 51 former intel officials who signed the letter claiming the laptop had “earmarks” of a Russian plot.
As much as we need a special counsel to investigate “Biden, Inc.,” Sen. Johnson said he’d have no faith in anyone appointed by Attorney General Merrick Garland. “If we could find one with integrity, I’d love to see it,” he said, “but the problem is, the information then goes into a dark hole.” He pointed out the length of time the Durham probe has taken to start revealing evidence, noting that it takes good investigative reporters to get information to us in a more timely way. (Of course, we’ve been getting that in the form of John Solomon, Miranda Devine and others.)
Leftist ‘Journalists’ Are an Embarrassment to Their ‘Profession’
Jordan Boyd makes a good point in The Federalist: that what we’ve learned is true about “the Biden family racket” is what the media think is true about Trump. She sees the media ignoring and burying the real Biden stories while eagerly pushing the fake Trump stories.
In fact, Matt Vespa at Townhall offers a stunning example of the sorry state of liberal “journalism.” Watch the video and see the utterly dismissive attitude of The Atlantic’s Anne Applebaum towards the Hunter story.
Why, she simply has no interest in it at all. Of course, if this were about Trump and his family, she’d call it The Story of the Century.
Leftist “journalists” are an embarrassment to their so-called profession, and Matt Taibbi is not above rubbing their noses in it. Let’s join in (when you have time; it’s a long piece).
Democrats in Congress are on par with these media types. I’ll summarize the “premium” story in The Epoch Times about Democrats blocking the GOP’s subpoena to have Hunter Biden come testify: Arizona Rep. Andy Biggs had moved to subpoena Hunter –- for a meeting about electrifying the U.S. Postal System, as he had sold a cobalt mine to a Chinese company. I don’t think that’s what they really wanted to talk to him about.
But, of course, the Democrats blocked it, so it’s sort of a “dog bites man” story.
