Lamest attempt at an October "surprise" ever

An alleged laptop which someone insists really, absolutely totally belonged to Hunter Biden for sure, and this person supposedly gave the laptop to the lawyer for Rudy Giuliani—a man up to his eyeballs in involvement in the actual shakedown of Ukraine by Donald Trump that lead to his impeachment—and this is in turn told to Steve Bannon—a man currently under indictment for defrauding people over a fake border wall—who then tells all of this to the New York Post, a publication best known as the paper most preferred by parakeets over the Tri-State area.

The scintillating “information” is an alleged desired introduction of Burisma officials by Hunter Biden to his father—Vice President at the time—who the allegation is then that VP Biden leans on the Ukrainian President to replace its Prosecutor General because that will supposedly relieve pressure on Burisma even though that Prosector General had abandoned the investigation into Burisma, and also everybody from the Obama administration to the EU to the IMF wanted that Prosecutor General replaced.

So either all of this is absolutely true and it does absolutely nothing to implicate either Biden, or it was all some elaborate Rube Goldberg set up and it still did absolutely nothing to implicate either Biden.

If you’re going to fake a smoking gun, shouldn’t it at least give the appearance of actual smoke?

Fucking amateurs.

Really dumbass play by the TrumPutin mob.

Besides, it's not true, and were it true, it's still nothing.

We haven't heard a peep out of those guys since last year at about this time.

Someone needs to check their cells or see if they've been served any tea.

In a country where the former DoJ is litigation harassing the author of a fricken book about the Tarnished Lady over a worthless private NDA and may soon be trying to get a former administration gadfly to pay restitution for telling the truth by posting pro-Trump campaign ads. Anything is possible.

17. What I really can't get over is who in their right mind would leave their laptop somewhere for ...

scumbags like this to go into and peruse the contents of the laptop? This doesn't meet the smell test what so ever. Think about it.

Most people are extremely careful and cautious about where they take and/or handle their laptops. I am that way mainly because there may be some information on the laptop although not much...even if I were to get another laptop or desktop computer instead of a laptop, I wouldn't dispose of the older laptop just because I have a newer model...I hang onto my older PCs and laptops and don't dispose of them anyways.

fake, that's why I said something and probably why the story isn't getting any traction in the real world (outside DU). These people are trying everything but throwing the kitchen sink to try and sink Mr. Biden. They will fail.
