SMOKING GUN: Did Hunter Biden Use Classified Documents for Foreign $$$$?

Posted on | January 26, 2023 | Comments Off on SMOKING GUN: Did Hunter Biden Use Classified Documents for Foreign $$$$?

Glenn Reynolds calls this a “Culture of Corruption” surrounding the Biden family, but it may be even more serious than that: Hunter Biden may have compromised U.S. national security in his pursuit of “business” with shady foreign clients. Daniel Chaitin at Daily Wire:

A lengthy email found in Hunter Biden‘s abandoned laptop is raising questions about whether the first son had improper access to classified information.
The new line of inquiry comes as President Joe Biden faces a special counsel investigation into his handling of documents after classified materials were found at a former office of his in Washington, D.C., and his home in Wilmington, Delaware, dating back to his time as a U.S. senator and vice president. And as noted in an analysis by the Washington Examiner, Hunter Biden likely had access to the garage in which records with classified contents have been discovered.
Stoking concerns about the potential misuse of classified information, the New York Post’s Miranda Devine wrote a column this week about an email dated April 12, 2014, sent to Hunter Biden’s then-business partner with 22 detailed points with “research” about the situation in Ukraine. The business partner, Devon Archer, was sentenced in 2022 to more than a year in prison after being convicted in a fraud scheme in which Hunter Biden was not implicated.
There are a number of reasons why this particular email drew attention. One is how it is written and the attention to detail. The email discusses such matters as Russia’s “destabilization campaign,” United States sanctions, and United Kingdom energy policy. A source told CNN the classified documents found at Biden’s private academic office, among other unclassified papers, contained U.S. intelligence memos and briefing materials on Iran, Ukraine, and the United Kingdom.
Another factor is the timing. One week after the email was sent, Joe Biden, who was vice president at the time, met with Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk. Also around that time, Hunter Biden and Archer were hired to sit on the board of Ukrainian energy company Burisma Holdings, which is repeatedly named in the email.

You can read the whole thing. How did Hunter Biden (who had no previous experience in Ukraine or Eurasian geopolitics) get all this information? Isn’t it strange how U.S. intelligence officials were so eager to dismiss Hunter Biden’s laptop as “Russian disinformation,” given how the contents of that laptop are exposing the entire Biden family as bought-and-paid-for by foreign cash? It’s almost as if these “intelligence officials” aren’t actually motivated by a concern for national security. Almost as if they, too, have been bought and paid for with foreign cash. But I guess I’m just a crazy right-wing conspiracy theorist . . .
