During the 2020 presidential campaign, career politician Joe Biden blatantly lied to the American people when he called reports at the time — regarding his son’s laptop — a “Russian plant” and “garbage”.

Biden relied on a letter, signed by 50 former intelligence officials, to justify his alleged innocence over damning information in the now-verified Hunter Biden laptop.

Joe Biden told voters during a 2020 presidential debate regarding information from Hunter Biden’s laptop: “50 former national folks … said that what [Donald Trump] is accusing me of is a Russian plant. They have said this has all the characteristics … What [Trump] is saying is a bunch of garbage.

CBS News, last month, “commissioned an independent forensic review to determine its authenticity”, verifying the contents of Hunter Biden’s laptop.

During the 2020 campaign, 45th President Donald Trump called Joe Biden a “criminal”. “He is a criminal,” Trump told White House correspondent Jeff Mason of Reuters. “He got caught. Read his laptop. And you know who who’s a criminal? You’re a criminal for not reporting it.”

“You are a criminal for not reporting it,” he reiterated, while pointing at the journalist. “Let me tell you something, Joe Biden is a criminal, and he’s been a criminal for a long time. And you’re a criminal and the media is criminal for not reporting it.”

As reported by Fox News regarding Hunter Biden’s laptop:

One email, dated May 13, 2017, and obtained by Fox News, includes a discussion of “remuneration packages” for six people in a business deal with a Chinese energy firm. The email appeared to identify Hunter Biden as “Chair / Vice Chair depending on agreement with CEFC,” in an apparent reference to now-bankrupt CEFC China Energy Co.

The email includes a note that “Hunter has some office expectations he will elaborate.” A proposed equity split references “20” for “H” and “10 held by H for the big guy?” with no further details. Fox News spoke to one of the people who was copied on the email, who confirmed its authenticity.

Sources told Fox News that “the big guy” is a reference to the former vice president.

CBS New’s Catherine Herridge tweeted on Friday the letter signed by the former officials:

Meanwhile, House Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) vows to “get answers for the American people” about the laptop in January, when Nancy Pelosi hands over the gavel.
