Well, those 51 informants are in for a surprise...

GOP DEMANDS ‘EXPERTS’ WHO DISMISSED HUNTER BIDEN LAPTOP FESS UP — OR FACE SUBPOENAS

April 6, 2022
By Steven Nelson

WASHINGTON — House Judiciary Committee Republicans are demanding that 51 former intelligence operatives divulge information about their 2020 statement that documents from Hunter Biden’s laptop could be Russian disinformation — with a senior GOP aide telling The Post that the ex-spies should expect subpoenas next year if they fail to comply.
 
All 19 Republicans on the panel signed a letter to the intelligence community stalwarts demanding records on their claim that the laptop story had “all the classic earmarks of a Russian information operation” — a statement which helped the Biden campaign discourage pre-election coverage of emails linking Joe Biden to his son’s business ventures in China and Ukraine.
 
Documents from the laptop were belatedly verified in the past month by the Washington Post and New York Times as a federal investigation into the first son over possible tax fraud, money laundering and foreign lobbying crimes heats up.
 
“We now know from subsequent reporting that the New York Post’s article about Hunter Biden was not, as you and your co-signatories alleged, part of a ‘Russian information operation’,” the GOP letter says. “This belated verification of the Post’s reporting raises fresh questions about the public statement you signed in October 2020.”
 
The letter signed by Reps. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio), Darrell Issa (R-Calif.), Mike Johnson (R-La.) and others demands that the ex-intelligence operatives — including former CIA directors John Brennan, Leon Panetta and Michael Hayden, as well as ex-Director of National Intelligence James Clapper — “identify all people with whom you communicated about the inception, drafting, editing, signing, publishing, or promotion” of the statement and provide “all documents and communications referring or relating to” that effort.
 
“Although this statement acknowledged that you had seen no actual ‘evidence’ of Russian involvement with respect to the publication of Hunter Biden’s emails, you nonetheless conveyed a ‘deep suspicio[n] that the Russian government played a significant role in the case.’ Later in the statement, you went further to state a ‘view’—not merely a suspicion anymore—’that the Russians are involved in the Hunter Biden email issue,'” the letter recounts.
 
“At best, the public statement was a reckless attempt by you and your co-signatories to erroneously opine about purported election interference. At worse—and more likely—the public statement was a deliberate and coordinated effort to mislead the American people about information relevant to the 2020 presidential election by invoking your national security experience to falsely suggest that the allegations about Hunter Biden were not based in fact.”
 
Democrats currently control the House of Representatives, but Republicans are favored to win the November midterm elections, which would allow them to wield subpoena powers next year that can compel potential witnesses in any congressional investigation to produce documents and submit to questioning.
 
A senior GOP aide told The Post that “these intelligence officials have a choice: either cooperate now, or face the consequences when Republicans take the majority next year.”
 
“If they have nothing to hide, it shouldn’t be hard for them to work with the committee,” the source said.
 
The Post’s initial October 2020 bombshell based on the trove of Hunter Biden emails revealed that Vadym Pozharskyi, an executive at the Ukrainian gas company Burisma, emailed Hunter in 2015 to thank him for the chance to meet his father — directly contradicting Biden’s 2019 claim that he’d “never spoken” with his son about “his overseas business dealings.”
 
Hunter Biden was paid a reported $1 million per year to serve on Burisma’s board while his vice president dad led the Obama administration’s Ukraine policy.
 
The Biden campaign vaguely denied that the meeting occurred, saying, “[W]e have reviewed Joe Biden’s official schedules from the time and no meeting, as alleged by the New York Post, ever took place.” Twitter banned sharing of The Post’s article and locked The Post out of its accounts, and Facebook squelched circulation of the story.

They didn’t expect that to happen.

ROFLMAO...

Do you have any idea how many times I've heard that?

They didn't expect Trump would win the 2016 election.

They didn't expect Trump would be acquitted of the Russia collusion hoax.

They didn't expect that Trump would actually build the wall even though they worked so hard to defund him.

They didn't expect the economy to recover so good... 36 times (12 months x 4 years) of upward revisions of all of their economic predictions. Lowest unemployment in history, biggest gains in companies bringing their manufacturing sector back home to America. 

They didn't expect the Israel Embassy to be moved to Jerusalem.

They didn't expect... ahhhhh.... do you really want me to list all of them?

HUNTER BIDEN Published April 14, 2022 2:09am EDT

Whitey Bulger's nephew played key role in Hunter Biden's Chinese business ventures

How deep do Hunter Biden's China connections go?
Senate Judiciary Committee ranking member Charles Grassley speaks out on 'Jesse Watters Primetime.'
 
James "Whitey" Bulger's nephew, Jim Bulger, was a business associate of Hunter Biden, and according to emails obtained and reviewed by Fox News Digital, appears to have played a key role in a number of his Chinese business ventures. 
 
Whitey Bulger was a notorious Boston crime boss, who became one of the nation's most-wanted fugitives after fleeing Boston in late 1994. He was captured in 2011. Bulger was serving a life sentence for 11 murders and other crimes when he died in prison in October 2018. 
 
In addition to being Whitey's nephew, Jim Bulger is the son of William "Billy" Bulger, who served as president of the Massachusetts State Senate for eight years. Billy Bulger was an ally of John Kerry when he served in the Senate. Kerry’s stepson, Christopher Heinz, co-founded Rosemont Seneca with Hunter Biden and Devon Archer.
 
Jim Bulger served as the chairman of Boston-based Thornton Group LLC— a firm that joined forces with Hunter Biden’s Rosemont Seneca to launch its joint-venture with Chinese investment firm Bohai Capital to create BHR Partners. BHR Partners is controlled by Bank of China Limited.
 
Boston gangster James 'Whitey' Bulger, Jr. poses for a mugshot on his arrival at the Federal Penitentiary at Alcatraz on November 16, 1959 in San Francisco, California.
 
One email, dated Jan. 27, 2014, with the subject line: "Meeting with Chinese Ambassador," shows Bulger suggesting himself, Hunter Biden, and his Rosemont Seneca co-founder Devon Archer, "meet with the Chinese ambassador in DC to talk about the fund."
 
Bulger forwards an email from his associate, Mike Leonard of Thornton Group.
 
"Please read the document Lenny sent me today, you will find it below," Bulger writes to Biden and Archer. "A US Embassy staffer met with the former CEO of the Bahai Fund in 2008 and wrote up a report on the meeting."
 
Bulger writes that it is "pretty interesting that someone at the Embassy in Beijing would be interested in what the domestic Bohai PE Fund was up to."
 
"Thought you guys should see this," Bulger writes. "I still believe a meeting early next week with the Ambassador if possible would be best, hope this has not caused to[sic] much of an a** ache."
 
It is unclear if the meeting between Biden, Bulger, Archer and the Chinese ambassador took place. Joe Biden was serving as vice president of the United States at the time of the meeting request. 
 
Joe Biden's brother-in-law, Jack Owens, emailed Hunter in 2014 to help him obtain a Chinese business license.
 
Another email, dated May 23, 2014, shows Bulger writing to Hunter Biden and Archer.
 
"Gentlemen, during the weekly BHR call last night Lindsay informed the whole China team excluding Jonathan about the message you both conveyed during the morning call with Lindsay," he wrote. "She was very clear to all on the phone that the signing of an investment contract with Gouxin or BOC or PICC is task number 1."
 
HUNTER BIDEN ASSOCIATE TEXTS HINT AT PUSH TO ‘GET JOE INVOLVED,’ MAKE IT LOOK LIKE ‘TRULY FAMILY BUSINESS’
 
BOC is likely referring to Bank of China. PICC is likely referring to the People’s Insurance Company of China.
 
Bulger continues to say that he was asked to discuss "the need for a contracted Chinese anchor investor."
 
In that email, Bulger also suggests Biden and Archer discuss "high level research" with another associate from Thornton, Mike Leonard, on the "KAZ/Sino energy business" so that they "both can review."
 
In addition to his own business deals, Hunter also involved Bulger in his family’s business matters. Fox News Digital reported last October that John Owens, who is married to Valerie Biden Owens, President Biden’s younger sister, reached out to Hunter in May 2014 for assistanc

But I'm not so sure in the Hunter laptop ordeal as it has implicated the entire Biden family... and the Democrats, the liberal news media and big tech have all be implicated in the cover-up as well. That won't do much good for votes!!!

If voters care at all they want to know the truth. The ones who don’t care have already made up their minds and aren’t interested in new facts.
