One day ago, the Wall Street Journal Editorial Board published the piece you are about to read below in full. Since the Journal has a paywall on its site, it may be difficult to see it at its native location, though the link to it is here for anyone having a subscription.
However, Fox News reprinted the editorial in full. We present it here. This IS definitely the October Surprise for this election on the GOP side. It is being severely hampered, but it does clearly show that Joe Biden at the very least, lied when he said he never got involved in his son’s business dealings. In fact, earlier Thursday, Oct 22, Hunters old business partner confirmed that there were indeed communications between the former Vice President and Chinese power-players in Hunter’s work. We even have text messages:
The messages seem to indicate that a meeting took place, though it’s unclear what the substance of the meeting may have been. They are unrelated to the laptop or hard drive purportedly belonging to Hunter Biden, the former vice president’s son.
“Mrng plse let me knw if we will do early dinner w your Uncle & dad and where, also for document translation do you want it simple Chinese or traditional?” Bobulinski texted Hunter Biden on May 2, 2017.
obtained the contents of a laptop purported to belong to Hunter. The Post has been transparent that it obtained its copy of the hard drive from Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani, who says he received it from the owner of a Delaware computer-repair shop, where it was abandoned in 2019. Mr. Biden derides this as a “smear campaign,” while House Intelligence Chair Adam Schiff calls it without evidence “Russian disinformation.”
Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe says the government has no intelligence to support the disinformation claim. A repair-shop order from April 2019 contains Hunter’s name and what appears to be his signature. The shop owner supplied a subpoena showing the computer and hard drive were seized by the FBI in December 2019. And the Biden campaign hasn’t said the emails are phony.
