Nothingburger: but the latest attempt to vilify Hunter Biden does remind us that bad things could happen when you bring your computer in for repair.
Ever desperate for a horse race, Comcast gives Trump free air for his own town hall in Miami.
No one should link to or share that NY Post 'report'. You can discuss the obvious flaws and unanswerable questions in the report without amplifying what appears to be disinformation.— Kyle Griffin (@kylegriffin1) October 14, 2020
Man takes laptop for repairs. Shop worker steals a copy of the hard drive; gives to man’s dad’s opponent. Opponent’s team leaks content to media who weaponize the stolen content and mock drug addiction. I’m not falling for #ButHisEmails and neither should you – #VoteBiden!

Why would the FBI subpoena the computer? If the store owner could give it to Giuliani, he could give it to the FBI. Makes no sense.
And let’s remember, Burisma was hacked last fall by Russia.
Do not be complicit in spreading Russian efforts to interfere in the election.

SUSPECT TIMING: The New York Post story says they were aware of the Hunter Biden emails since September but Giuliani didn't provide them until Sunday — two days after Axios reported no Durham report or indictments were coming before the election. https://t.co/B2SbxxSCL1 pic.twitter.com/gsgFIcgKNl

Anatomy of a fake news story: No one knows who owns the mysterious computer with emails from 2014. Then somehow Rudy Giuliani got it after Steve Bannon told him about it. Then ends up in NY Post. Joe Biden should ignore and focus on saving lives from Covid and creating jobs.

New: Biden campaign responds to NY Post story. “The New York Post never asked the Biden campaign about the critical elements of this story…moreover, we have reviewed Joe Biden’s official schedules from the time and no meeting, as alleged by the New York Post, ever took place.” pic.twitter.com/yB2N5mvsXb

The Hunter Biden-Burisma “scandal” has resulted in:
– Felony indictments for individuals working on Giuliani & tRUmp’s behalf
– tRUmp’s Impeachment
– US IC warnings about Russian plots to hurt Biden’s candidacy
– Senate report stating no wrongdoing occurred
Nothing more. Focus.

Maybe I'm not understanding how the world works because I'm not a big time TV news person but rewarding the candidate who blew up a presidential debate with his own counterprogramming town hall on the same night feels like access-mongering sycophancy.

#BoycottNBC is trending because their corporate overlord, #Comcast is good with giving Donald a town hall tomorrow night in Miami at the same time ABC has Biden’s Town Hall. I mean, come on, Trump didn’t want to do a virtual debate. How does he merit this kind of free air?

A reminder: The president was impeached for his attempts to fabricate lies about Joe Biden and Ukraine.

1. I'm going to go through a few issues with the NY Post article on Biden, which I won't link to, but you will probably see on Twitter today.
Follow along if interested.

The “shop owner,” who is not identified, “couldn’t positively identify the customer as Hunter Biden”
This makes no sense. You drop off an expensive Mac laptop at a repair shop and don't leave your name or contact information?
So why would the shop owner produce a receipt for Hunter Biden if he didn't know the ID of the customer?
But the grand jury subpoena shown does not connect the laptop to Hunter Biden.
Both Giuliani and Bannon are regular sources of disinformation
Supposedly one “email” recovered on the laptop “proves” that Hunter once introduced a Bursima exec to his father.
The New York Post says its significant because Biden then called for the ouster of the Ukrainian prosecutor investigating Bursima.
The prosecutor was not investigating Bursima
Replacing the corrupt prosecutor brought more scrutiny on Bursima, not less
Don't be fooled by that.
