Trump's fake new Biden scandal has a deeper purpose. Bannon revealed it.

Opinion by Greg Sargent

The single most important fact about the laughably weak new scandal that President Trump is pushing about Hunter Biden and his emails is that we’re now seeing lots and lots of media stories about Hunter Biden and his emails.

While Trump and his propagandists would surely prefer to have a more compelling scandal to tout, the thinness of this new gruel is largely secondary. What matters is the mere fact that many mainstream outlets are running articles with the words “Biden” and “emails” in them.

We know this, because Stephen K. Bannon has already laid out the playbook we’re seeing here at length. But, as I hope to show, a look back at this playbook — and at the new pseudo-scandal itself — reveals not only its nefarious deeper purpose, but also why it will likely fail.

Trump touted this shiny new toy at his Iowa rally on Wednesday night. He referenced the now-widely discussed New York Post story, which “reports” that Hunter Biden received emails from a Ukrainian executive that supposedly show he arranged access to his father, Joe Biden.
