It’s always the cover-up! Had Twitter and FaceBook and the rest of them simply minimized and mocked and picked apart the NY Post story about The blindingly obvious corruption of the Biden family, they and the Democrats (but I repeat myself) would have had a chance to decrease its penetration into the national consciousness.
But by very obviously hiding it from America, they have highlighted both the suggestion that the Bidens are corrupt (and liars), and that the Leftist Media Complex is actively pursuing an anti-Trump agenda, and can be considered just another division within the Biden/Harris campaign.
Hunter Biden introduced his father, then-Vice President Joe Biden, to a top executive at a Ukrainian energy firm less than a year before the elder Biden pressured government officials in Ukraine into firing a prosecutor who was investigating the company, according to emails obtained by The Post.
The never-before-revealed meeting is mentioned in a message of appreciation that Vadym Pozharskyi, an adviser to the board of Burisma, allegedly sent Hunter Biden on April 17, 2015, about a year after Hunter joined the Burisma board at a reported salary of up to $50,000 a month.
“Dear Hunter, thank you for inviting me to DC and giving an opportunity to meet your father and spent [sic] some time together. It’s realty [sic] an honor and pleasure,” the email reads.
An earlier email from May 2014 also shows Pozharskyi, reportedly Burisma’s No. 3 exec, asking Hunter for “advice on how you could use your influence” on the company’s behalf.
The blockbuster correspondence — which flies in the face of Joe Biden’s claim that he’s “never spoken to my son about his overseas business dealings” — is contained in a massive trove of data recovered from a laptop computer.
To news junkies and Trump supporters it sounds damning, but if there is a lesson one can take away from the last dozen years of American political activity, it is that most people are not paying much attention to the mind-numbing details of the various scandals.
That’s why trying to cover up the latest story was such a mistake. Most Americans may be sick and tired of this sort of stuff, but when Twitter and FaceBook and the rest try to hide it, then America’s ears perk up and it becomes curious. It remains to be seen how much of an impact this will have, but it certainly can’t help the Biden campaign.
Will the Republican Party apparatus treat this as the golden opportunity it so obviously is, or will they meander down the same path they have taken for years, playing the gentleman statesman who graciously loses?
Hopefully my suspicion is wrong….
