More than two years have passed since Big Tech controversially suppressed the New York Post’s infamous exposé on Hunter Biden’s laptop, yet despite those efforts, the story continues to make waves.
“I guess the chickens are coming home to roost,” noted Miranda Devine, New York Post reporter and author of “Laptop From Hell: Hunter Biden, Big Tech, and the Dirty Secrets the President Tried to Hide.”
On Dec. 1, as Twitter owner Elon Musk was preparing to release internal documents revealing the true motivations behind the social media platform’s decision to censor the story, Devine delved into the details of the story, the cover-up, and more for Epoch TV’s “American Thought Leaders” program. The episode is due to air on Dec. 8 at 7:30 p.m. ET.
On Oct. 14, 2020, just weeks before the presidential election, the Post published its bombshell report that then-presidential candidate Joe Biden had met in 2015 with an executive from Burisma, a Ukrainian energy firm that had been paying his son, Hunter, a salary of up to $50,000 a month.
The report cited emails sourced from a laptop that had been abandoned at a Delaware repair shop in April 2019 and had since been seized by the FBI.
In one email, Vadym Pozharskyi, an adviser to the board of Burisma, contacted the younger Biden seeking “advice on how you could use your influence” to benefit Burisma.
In a subsequent email, Pozharskyi thanked the then-vice president’s son for “giving an opportunity to meet your father” in Washington.
Throughout his campaign, Joe Biden had repeatedly denied any knowledge or participation in his son’s business dealings. And as the other contents of the laptop included what appeared to be a pornographic video of Hunter in which he was also smoking crack, the Post knew it had a big story on its hands.
