25. I see no reason why there won't be a final debate...

There are two issues at play here: whether this information was provided by a foreign entity or whether it's a forgery entirely.

The latter point would make the first part easy to handle. But as it was with the DNC hacks of 2016, the HOW in the revelation took a gigantic backseat to the WHAT of the revelation. Biden just saying it's a foreign plant won't be the end of it - he will have to answer about whether the content on the laptop is legitimate or not.

But that gets into another set of questions:

1. Is this laptop even real or is the whole thing made up? If that's the case, Biden should come out and say it's all a forgery and it's not his son's laptop and therefore any e-mail would be fake and tie that into the FBI's comments.

2. The laptop is real, and they've mixed real content with fake to make it easier to hide the fake stuff.

In that case, Biden is going to have to refute one of the claims: that he urged his son to work with the Chinese to get 10% of profits off a deal.

But I suspect just saying it's a smear campaign won't suffice IF this turns into a bigger issue. Right now, it isn't. Right now, no one is focused on it. But a week from now? Who knows?
