Joe Biden Should Be Worried Over Latest Demand from Hunter Biden Grand Jury Looking to Identify ‘The Big Guy’: Report

Warner Todd Huston, The Western Journal
April 5, 2022 

The investigation into Hunter Biden’s abandoned laptop seems to be swirling ever closer to the president himself as a grand jury begins seeking to identify “the big guy” mentioned in Hunter’s emails.

In October of 2021, the New York Post published excerpts from a book that details the information gleaned from a laptop that Hunter Biden abandoned at a computer repair shop in Delaware.

The paper went on to report that someone identified as “the Big Guy” expected a 10 percent cut from the deals Hunter made. It was suggested that this “big guy” who expected kickbacks from his son’s shady deals in Ukraine, China and other places where Hunter sold the influence of his father’s name was none other than Joe Biden himself.

The “big guy” claim was made in an email written by Hunter Biden business partner James Gilliar, who had outlined a proposition of payment of equity in a company created for a joint venture with CEFC China Energy Co.

The line in question noted that ten percent would be “held by H for the big guy.”

Now, as a grand jury is looking into Hunter Biden, a witness was asked to identify just who “the big guy” is, according to the New York Post.

The Post went on to hint that the grand jury question came after the information about James Gilliar’s email was introduced during the secret proceedings currently being held in Wilmington, Delaware.

It has also been reported that former Biden business partner Tony Bobulinski alleged that the “big guy” was Joe Biden and any deals made by Biden’s extended family members would commonly include a percentage of the proceeds going to Joe Biden as a kickback.

Joe Biden has repeatedly told the American people that he has no knowledge about Hunter’s business deals, that he never spoke to Hunter about any of them, and that he was not involved in any of Hunter’s deals.

But Bobulinski added, “I have heard Joe Biden say he has never discussed his dealings with Hunter. That is false.”

Bobulinski noted that he knew things were shaky because he was warned not to mention Joe Biden being involved in any of Hunter’s dealings.

News of the documents on the laptop led one George Washington University Law School professor to say that it was clear to him that Joe and Hunter were selling Joe’s influence as vice president.

In July of last year, professor Jonathan Turley bemoaned “the concerted and often embarrassing blackout in the media on stories involving Hunter Biden’s influence peddling during his father’s tenure as Vice President.”

“That includes the burying of the laptop story and the growing contradictions over his father’s denial of any knowledge or involvement in his shady business dealings,” Turley added.

“Even recent reports that Hunter may have paid prostitutes with his father’s account were blacked out by mainstream media which exhaustively pursued any story related to the Trump children and their dealings and life styles,” Turley lamented.

White House chief of staff Ron Klain desperately tried to throw the spotlight off the president, saying that his boss was “confident that his son didn’t break the law” and “confident that his family did the right thing,” according to the Post.

“But, again, I want to just be really clear, these are actions by Hunter and his brother,” Klain told ABC’s George Stephanopoulos.

“They’re private matters. They don’t involve the president. And they certainly are something that no one at the White House is involved in.”

Granted, we do not have definitive evidence that “the big guy” mentioned in the documents on Hunter’s laptop is Joe Biden. But the investigation seems to be swirling closer to the president with every revelation. And clearly, Biden’s representatives are scrambling.

Hunter Biden Probe Broader Than We Ever Realized, Not Even Establishment Media Can Ignore What’s Happening Now

Elizabeth Stauffer, The Western Journal
March 31, 2022

The New York Times’ admission two weeks ago that the emails found on Hunter Biden’s abandoned laptop were real was a signal to some of us that the Times was trying to get out ahead of something.

When The Washington Post, CNN, ABC and NBC acknowledged the emails were real on Wednesday, we knew something was up.

On Wednesday night and Thursday morning, multiple media outlets reported that the inquiry into Biden’s taxes which began several years ago has expanded to include possible money laundering and foreign lobbying violations.

On Wednesday, sources familiar with the matter told ABC News that an “increasing number of witnesses have appeared before a grand jury impaneled in Wilmington, Delaware,” over the past few months.

Witnesses are being asked about Biden’s finances, specifically his income from the Ukrainian energy company Burisma, where he served on the board of directors. Some have been questioned about “how he paid his taxes in recent years.”

Witnesses have included several of Biden’s former business associates, lobbyists and Lunden Roberts, with whom he had a child in 2018, according to CNN. More witnesses are scheduled to appear in the weeks ahead.

ABC’s sources said there has been no decision yet on whether Biden will be criminally charged. However, there has been debate among prosecutors “about whether Biden’s admitted past drug abuse could serve to undermine a criminal case over his financial decision-making.”

CBS’ Catherine Herridge reported on Thursday morning that the probe is “broader than previously known” and that two of Biden’s former business associates appeared before the grand jury last fall.

Herridge said that prosecutors are looking into Biden’s transactions with the Chinese energy company CEFC, an entity that Republican Sen. Chuck Grassley told his colleagues on Monday was “effectively an arm of the communist Chinese government.”

In 2017, she said, CEFC signed a $1 million retainer for Biden’s legal services. The client was CEFC official Patrick Ho, who was arrested and convicted on “international bribery and money laundering charges for unrelated work in Africa.”

During Grassley’s presentation to the Senate on Monday, he displayed an August 2017 receipt for a $165,000 payment from CEFC to Wells Fargo Clearing Services. He pointed out a notation near the bottom of the page that read “further credit to OWASCO PC” and informed his fellow senators that Owasco was one of Biden’s companies.

Grassley confirmed that this transaction was being made public for the first time and said he and Republican Sen. Ron Johnson would soon be rolling out more receipts.

In a 2021 interview with CBS, host Anthony Mason asked Biden if his father had benefited financially from any of his foreign business deals. Although rumors to the contrary have been swirling, Biden replied with a most emphatic no.

None of the stories from CBS, ABC or CNN on the probe seem to substantiate the attention it’s suddenly receiving. Biden has built his career upon selling access to his father. And this probe has been going on for years. So what’s the draw?

Here are some possibilities:

  1. Hunter Biden could be indicted.
  2. Evidence that President Joe Biden benefited financially from his son’s dealings could surface.
  3. Evidence that Joe Biden was well aware of his son’s underhanded business dealings could come to light.
  4. The story has simply become too big for the establishment media to hide. They have to at least pretend to be journalists.

Time will tell.

In the meantime, I think the real story is that the legacy media is reporting on this story at all.

Durham to Produce ‘Large Volume’ of Classified Materials on Steele’s Main Dossier Source Igor Danchenko

Cristina Laila
March 23rd, 2022

Special prosecutor John Durham will produce a ‘large volume’ of classified materials this week on Christopher Steele’s main dossier source, according to a new filing.

Recall, Steele’s main source, Igor Danchenko was arrested by the FBI in November 2021 on five counts of making false statements to the feds.

In June 2020 we broke the story that the Primary Sub-Source (PSS) for the Steele dossier was Igor Danchenko – the individual behind most of the made up lies in the Steele dossier.

The Washington Examiner reported:

The Justice Department plans to produce a “large volume” of classified materials this week in the Russiagate case against the main source for British ex-spy Christopher Steele’s anti-Trump dossier.

Special counsel John Durham made the assertion in a filing Tuesday asking a judge for a deadline extension for the production of classified discovery in accordance with the Classified Information Procedures Act, a law that establishes procedures for protecting classified information in criminal cases. Durham pinned the need for a delay on agency personnel being involved in matters related to Russia’s war in Ukraine.

“To date, the government has produced over 60,000 documents in unclassified discovery. A portion of these documents were originally marked ‘classified’ and the government has worked with the appropriate declassification authorities to produce the documents in an unclassified format,” Durham said in the filing submitted to federal court in the Eastern District of Virginia.

“However, recent world events in Ukraine have contributed to delays in the production of classified discovery. The officials preparing and reviewing the documents at the FBI and intelligence agencies are heavily engaged in matters related to Ukraine. Nevertheless, the government will produce a large volume of classified discovery this week and will continue its efforts to produce documents in classified discovery on a rolling basis, and no later than the proposed deadlines set forth below,” Durham added.

A new filing from Special Counsel John Durham reveals Perkins Coie allies connected to Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign spied on Trump’s internet traffic – WHILE HE WAS PRESIDENT.

The Durham investigators also uncovered evidence that shows Hillary Clinton’s team paid operatives to “infiltrate” the Trump Tower and then President Trump’s White House servers to link Trump to Russia.

Lawmaker Calls for Full Investigation Into Collusion Between Big Tech, Mainstream Media and Democrats

Elizabeth Stauffer, The Western Journal
March 19th, 2022

“So, let’s get back to the name-calling,” said “journalist” Leslie Stahl in an interview with then-President Donald Trump after dismissing what should have been one of the most consequential October surprises in presidential election history, the Hunter Biden laptop story.

The New York Post’s October 2020 bombshell story, which exposed a presidential candidate’s planned business deal with a CCP-affiliated company established precisely to enrich his family, set up so that the candidate himself, referred to as “The Big Guy,” would receive a 10 percent share of future profits, should have derailed Joe Biden’s campaign. The emails revealed in this game-changing report provided a road-map of the Biden family’s long history of influence peddling.

But we quickly learned that a scandal is only a scandal if Big Tech, the legacy media and a group of former intelligence community leaders say it is.

The New York Post reported that, far from denying the laptop belonged to Hunter Biden, or that it had been hacked, the Biden campaign said there was nothing on his “official schedules” about a 2015 meeting with a Ukrainian energy executive.

The collaboration which ensued between Big Tech, the legacy media and establishment veterans of the intelligence community who were deeply invested in a Biden victory, to discredit and/or to suppress the story can only be described as collusion.

Twitter and Facebook took the lead in the campaign to label the report as Russian disinformation. Big Tech openly censored the article on their platforms “to limit the spread of potentially false information” even as Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey admitted to lawmakers he had no evidence to prove the story was disinformation.

Facebook was all in as well.

Providing further “proof” that the article was nothing but a “smear” from a media outlet that openly endorsed Trump’s re-election, over 50 intelligence community officials signed a letter which called into question the authenticity of the report. The first four signers included former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, and former CIA Directors Mike Hayden, Leon Panetta and John Brennan, all of whom deeply despised Trump.

Essentially, the letter said that the Russians were trying to influence a U.S. presidential election, just like they had in 2016. They wrote that the “emails purportedly belonging to Vice President Biden’s son Hunter, … [had] all the classic earmarks of a Russian information operation.”

The letter said they, of course, did not know if the emails were genuine or not, but that “our experience makes us deeply suspicious that the Russian government played a significant role in this case.”

In the video below, Biden tells Trump in a final debate that the story was a “Russian plant” and points to the letter from “50 former national security folks” as validation.

On Thursday, seventeen months after the news broke, The New York Times quietly admitted that the laptop and the emails it contains are real. The admission came in the 24th paragraph of an article whose title, “Hunter Biden Paid Tax Bill, but Broad Federal Investigation Continues,” provides no clue of the Grand Canyon-sized truth they are finally acknowledging.

The paragraph reads:

People familiar with the investigation said prosecutors had examined emails between Mr. Biden, Mr. Archer and others about Burisma and other foreign business activity. Those emails were obtained by The New York Times from a cache of files that appears to have come from a laptop abandoned by Mr. Biden in a Delaware repair shop. The email and others in the cache were authenticated by people familiar with them and with the investigation.

Moreover, the highlighted text (theirs) links to an October 2020 article, updated in September 2021, in which the Times discredits the laptop story as “a bid to damage Mr. Biden’s presidential campaign.”

The New York Times, whose content informs the opinions of a large swath of Americans, covered up the truth about a corrupt presidential candidate to ensure his victory. And now, 17 months later, after the leader they helped elect has inflicted untold damage upon the country and on the world, they offer a subdued admission and no apology.

Republican Rep. Darrell Issa of California sees the collusion between Big Tech, the legacy media and the Democrat industrial complex to cast suspicion and even hide this story as the real election interference, as many of us do. And he’s called for Congress to initiate an investigation.

Obviously, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi would rather stick needles in her eyes than open an investigation, but chances that Republicans will take control of Congress in January are excellent and this may well be their first order of business.

Below, conservatives react to this news:

The New York Times tried to nonchalantly sneak a colossal, consequential admission into the 24th paragraph of a semi-related article for a reason. This was a deliberate editorial decision.

It will obviously enable them to cite this article to say ‘See, we reported that the emails were real.’

But there may be a greater purpose. I question the timing. Why now? Although this is pure speculation on my part, I have to wonder if they’re trying to get ahead of new developments in the DOJ’s case against Hunter Biden.

Is the other shoe about to drop?

Possibly.

Durham’s Trump-Russia Report Likely To Be Made Public: Justice Official

Martin Walsh
March 18, 2022

Government watchdog group Judicial Watch has filed a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit against the Department of Justice for “records of communication between Special Counsel John Durham and Attorney General Merrick Garland.”

In a press release, the lawsuit was filed after the DOJ failed to respond to an August 23, 2021, FOIA request.

Judicial Watch is requesting the following from the DOJ:

1. All records of communication, including emails and text messages, between Special Counsel John Durham and Attorney General Merrick Garland.

2. All budget records related to the operations of the office of Special Counsel John Durham.

The U.S. Department of Justice suggested that when Durham finishes his investigation into the origins of the Trump-Russia probe, his report will likely be made public.

Republican Sens. Chuck Grassley of Iowa and Ron Johnson of Wisconsin sent a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland demanding answers about Durham’s investigation.

Deputy Assistant Attorney General Joe Gaeta sent a letter back saying that he could not comment on Durham’s ongoing investigation or its status.

However, that’s not all.

The GOP Senators stated in their letter that back in October 2020, then-Attorney General Bill Barr wrote that: “The Special Counsel, to the maximum extent possible and consistent with the law and policies and practices of the Department of Justice, shall submit to the Attorney General a final report, and such interim reports as he deems appropriate, in a form that will permit public dissemination.”

In his response letter, Gaeta wrote, “The Department agrees with this statement.”

There have been a few updates in recent weeks about Durham’s investigation.

Last week, GOP Rep. Devin Nunes, ranking member of the House Intelligence Committee, said that he expects Durham to release a “damaging report” on the FBI’s failed investigation into Trump’s alleged ties with Russia.

Nunes said he thinks prison sentences could fall on a number of former senior Obama officials.

“Nunes is one of the few members of the Republican Party that still believe justice will be served. He laid out his reasons on The Sara Carter Show and said he hasn’t given up faith in Durham’s investigation despite the enormous speculation that the Durham investigation will fail to deliver justice,” wrote Carter.

Durham was appointed last October by Barr to serve as special counsel to look into the origins of the FBI’s since-tarnished investigation into Trump.

During the course of the DOJ probe, numerous FBI officials who worked under President Obama were fired or resigned from their positions.

“As you know, the Republican conference has asked me to investigate this,” Nunes told the journalist.

“You know, I’d like to get back to the days when I was just dealing with foreign threats, and looking at what’s happening in Cuba, looking at what Putin’s doing, looking at what the Chinese are doing. But I’m always getting rolled back into this because the Democrats in this country have weaponized our institutions over the last five, six years,” Nunes added.

Nunes responded by saying that he expects the report to be delivered and fully expects those responsible for the probe to be charged.

“I just have to have faith ultimately, that there’s that, you know, there was a special counsel created, Durham does have the power, we’re fully expecting him to deliver the report,” said Nunes.

He added: “It may not be as broad as we want it to be. But look, there are some major perpetrators. I think as you and everybody else know, we’ve made over 14 criminal referrals. That doesn’t mean 14 individuals, that means 14 different criminal referrals involving multiple individuals… And this is one of the challenges.”

Hunter Biden Still Under Federal Investigation: Mother of His Child Testifies Before Grand Jury in Secret Probe

Abby Liebing, The Western Journal
February 21st, 2022

Scandal keeps swirling around Hunter Biden as his finances and business dealings continue to be investigated by the Department of Justice.

Lunden Roberts, the mother of Hunter’s three-year-old daughter, testified this week before a federal grand jury in Delaware that is reportedly investigating Biden for tax crimes, the Daily Mail reported.

Roberts is just one of the people on a growing list of his associates who have been subpoenaed to give evidence in the Department of Justice’s probe into Biden’s finances.

In 2018, Roberts had Hunter’s baby out of wedlock, Navy Joan. Roberts then got into a legal battle with Biden when she filed a paternity suit, the New York Post reported.

At first, Hunter denied having had a relationship with Roberts and did not acknowledge the child as his. But DNA tests showed that the baby was almost certainly his, CNBC News reported.

During the battle over child support, Hunter also claimed in 2019 that he was too poor to pay child support. But at the time he was living in a Hollywood rented residence and driving a Porsche, the Daily Mail reported.

Hunter did not want to reveal his financial information, and finally, an Arkansas court called for a hearing on whether he should be held in contempt for his failure to disclose that information, CNBC News reported.

Clint Lancaster, an attorney for Roberts, accused Hunter of having no respect for the court.

“The defendant’s conduct is willful and contemptuous,” Lancaster wrote in a motion asking a judge to hold Biden in contempt of court, CNBC News reported.

“The defendant continues to act as though he has no respect for this Court, its orders, the legal process in this state or the needs of his child for support. This court should sanction the defendant as it deems appropriate and just,” Lancaster added.

Finally, Hunter agreed to pay an undisclosed amount of monthly child support to Roberts in order to avoid the possibility of being held in contempt.

But aside from the financial and legal problems with Roberts, the Department of Justice has been looking into Hunter’s other finances for a few years now.

In 2019, Delaware U.S. Attorney David Weiss issued JP Morgan Chase a grand jury subpoena for Hunter’s bank transactions with the Bank of China. The subpoena also wanted the transactions that involved Hunter’s uncle, James Biden, as well as his former business partners Devon Archer and Eric Schwerin, the New York Post reported.

Then just after Joe Biden won the presidency, in December of 2020, Hunter revealed that he was being investigated by the DOJ and commented on how he was taking the issue very seriously.

“I take this matter very seriously, but I am confident that a professional and objective review of these matters will demonstrate that I handled my affairs legally and appropriately, including with the benefit of professional tax advisors,” Hunter Biden said at the time, the New York Post reported.

The scandal surrounding Hunter continued to grow when the New York Post reported on a hard drive from his laptop. It reportedly contained emails with information about his overseas business dealings, along with photos and videos that have sexual and drug content.

Meanwhile, many of the details of the investigation into Hunter are unknown and the grand jury testimony from Roberts remains secret, the Daily Mail reported.

After giving several hours of testimony, Roberts declined to speak with reporters.

Hillary Clinton Responds to Durham’s Report Stating Her Campaign Paid To Spy On Trump

Twice failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton has responded to the bombshell report alleging her 2016 presidential campaign paid to spy on President Donald Trump.

Clinton took to Twitter and responded to a report from the left-wing outlet Vanity Fair, which defended Clinton and also referred to Trump as a “moron.”

“Trump & Fox are desperately spinning up a fake scandal to distract from his real ones. So it’s a day that ends in Y. The more his misdeeds are exposed, the more they lie. For those interested in reality, here’s a good debunking of their latest nonsense,” Clinton tweeted.

Clinton was confronted by a reporter late on Tuesday over the bombshell report.

A reporter from The Daily Mail asked her about the court filings from Special Counsel John Durham, but Clinton completely ignored the questions.

“Hillary Clinton refused to answer questions about allegations that her allies spied on the Trump campaign as the controversy continued to engulf her Tuesday,” The Daily Mail reported. “Exclusive pictures and video obtained by DailyMail.com show a stoney faced Clinton silently waving away repeated questions of whether she spied on Donald Trump.”

Durham said in a court filing that lawyers for the Clinton campaign paid a tech company to “infiltrate” servers belonging to Trump Tower and the Trump White House in an effort to establish a “narrative” linking Trump to Russia.

The revelation was made in a court filing late last week that centered on potential conflicts of interest connected to the representation of former Clinton campaign lawyer Michael Sussman, who has been charged with allegedly lying to the FBI.

The bombshell news was first reported by Fox News:

Durham filed a motion on Feb. 11 focused on potential conflicts of interest related to the representation of former Clinton campaign lawyer Michael Sussman, who has been charged with making a false statement to a federal agent. Sussman has pleaded not guilty.

The indictment against Sussman says he told then-FBI General Counsel James Baker in September 2016, less than two months before the 2016 presidential election, that he was not doing work “for any client” when he requested and held a meeting in which he presented “purported data and ‘white papers’ that allegedly demonstrated a covert communications channel” between the Trump Organization and Alfa Bank, which has ties to the Kremlin.

In the February 11 filing in a section titled “Factual Background,” Durham said that Sussman “had assembled and conveyed the allegations to the FBI on behalf of at least two specific clients, including a technology executive (Tech Executive 1) at a U.S.-based internet company (Internet Company 1) and the Clinton campaign.”

It said that Sussman’s “billing records reflect” that he “repeatedly billed the Clinton Campaign for his work on the Russian Bank-1 allegations.”

The filing showed that the Tech Executive and Sussman met and talked to another law partner, who was serving as General Counsel to the Clinton campaign. That attorney, sources said, is Marc Elias, who worked at the law firm Perkins Coie.

Durham’s filing states that in July 2016, the tech executive worked with Sussman, a U.S. investigative firm retained by Law Firm 1 on behalf of the Clinton campaign, numerous cyber researchers, and employees at multiple internet companies to “assemble the purported data and white papers.”

“In connection with these efforts, Tech Executive-1 exploited his access to non-public and/or proprietary Internet data,” the filing said. “Tech Executive-1 also enlisted the assistance of researchers at a U.S.-based university who were receiving and analyzing large amounts of Internet data in connection with a pending federal government cybersecurity research contract.”

“Tech Executive-1 tasked these researchers to mine Internet data to establish ‘an inference’ and ‘narrative’ tying then-candidate Trump to Russia,” Durham said. “In doing so, Tech Executive-1 indicated that he was seeking to please certain ‘VIPs,’ referring to individuals at Law Firm-1 and the Clinton campaign.”

John Solomon Reveals Who He Thinks John Durham Will Go After Next

Martin Walsh
February 8, 2022

OPINION: This article may contain commentary which reflects the author’s opinion.


Just The News founder John Solomon believes that Special Counsel John Durham is preparing to go after the FBI.

During an interview on Fox News, Solomon and host Maria Bartiromo spoke about the special counsel’s investigation into the Trump-Russia witch hunt and what Durham’s next move might be.

Russian-born analyst Igor Danchenko — key source for the unverified Steele dossier that alleged ties between Donald Trump’s campaign and Russia — was arrested by federal agents last year as part of the Durham investigation.

Solomon explained that he believes Durham is dealing with “two buckets.”

In one “bucket,” there are the last two indictments against officials who were connected to Hillary Clinton and their plan to feed the FBI false information about Trump-Russia conspiracies.

Solomon said the other “bucket” focuses on the FBI and whether agents knowingly mislead the FISA court to obtain warrants to spy on members of Trump’s 2016 campaign.

Solomon also disputes former FBI counterintelligence chief Peter Strzok’s statement on MSNBC that the FBI never investigated the Trump campaign in 2016, as Durham’s investigation into the origins of the Mueller probe makes another indictment.

STRZOK: Whether intentionally or not, when you look at the balance of those pages, they have subtle dog whistles to these pro-Trump conspiracy theories, statements like the FBI’s investigation of the Trump campaign relied on certain things. Well, there was never an FBI investigation of the Trump campaign. Unless you listen to some kind of far-extreme-right commentators or of folks in Congress who assert there was, but that’s nonsense.

BARTIROMO: Of course, John, there was no pushback from Rachel Maddow. To say there was no investigation of the Trump campaign. Your reaction? Mind-boggling.

SOLOMON: Listen, Pete Strzok’s opening electronic communication which starts the Crossfire Hurricane investigation states they are looking at whether individuals associated with the Trump campaign were coordinating conspiring with Russia. When they put the first FISA in, in October, the Trump campaign is mentioned a dozen times in the first FISA, and as I mentioned in the last segment, the allegation is a well-developed conspiracy between individuals associated with the Trump campaign and Russia to hijack the election.

Of course, it was about the campaign. Peter Strzok’s own words said it was about the campaign. He was lying the other night. There’s no other way to say it politely.

BARTIROMO: Of course, they continue to renew FISA warrants against the Trump campaign, and they based those warrants to wiretap people like Carter Page, based on that dossier which they knew was false and made up. So I ask you now, what do you think the indictments will look like in the future? Do you think that John Durham is going to indict people at high levels, big fish, within the FBI?

SOLOMON: There’s no doubt there is activity inside the grand jury right now aimed at looking at top-level officials of the FBI, and it’s based on this evidence. We all look at the fact that Denchenko was interviewed by the FBI on January 17, and disowned a lot of the things that were said to him. A lot of people said that should have been the point where the FBI stopped.

But Durham developed really significant evidence that red flags, the stop-now warning signs go all the way back to August when Bruce Orr, in 2016 came to the FBI and said Christopher Steele is dumping a dossier. He hates Trump. He’s hired by Hillary Clinton and most of his information is raw and uncorroborated.

A month after the CIA sends a warning to the FBI, this is something John Ratcliffe declassified, saying Hillary Clinton is trying to play a dirty trick on Donald Trump to tie him to Russia to get out of her e-mail thing. All through the fall, they keep a spreadsheet of what’s right and wrong of the Steele dossier. It’s all wrong. Can’t corroborate, they can’t collaborate the information. The FBI never should have started the investigation and I think that’s where John Durham’s investigation is focused right now.

Hunter Biden’s ‘Disgusting’ Laptop: Repairman Reveals What Had Him Calling the FBI

Elizabeth Stauffer, The Western Journal
February 4th, 2022

On April 12, 2019, shortly before closing time, Hunter Biden walked into a small computer repair shop in Wilmington, Delaware. John Paul Mac Isaac, the former proprietor of The Mac Shop, told Fox News, “I could definitely tell that he was inebriated.”

The network has produced a four-part exposé on President Joe Biden’s wayward son. The series, entitled “Who is Hunter Biden?,” is now streaming on Fox Nation.

Recalling his encounter with Hunter, Isaac said, “When I asked for his last name, there was a long pause. And he kind of sarcastically added Biden. I had to ask Hunter for his password. And he started laughing. He was like, ‘You’re not really gonna like this.’”

Fox didn’t reveal the password, which I suppose is all we really need to know.

Isaac told the outlet he found an “astounding” and “disgusting” trove of homemade pornography on the laptop. In a Fox ad for the series, journalist Miranda Devine speaks of Hunter’s “roaring sex addiction.”

It was when Isaac discovered a PDF showing that Hunter had made over $1 million for Ukrainian energy company Burisma Holdings that he called the FBI.

The FBI was curiously uninterested in Isaac’s revelations. He said, “I think that was my first indication that maybe the FBI was more interested in returning the laptop to the former owner and protecting the Bidens than they were protecting me or getting this to the proper channel.”

At that point, Isaac contacted Bob Costello, Rudy Giuliani’s lawyer, who was considerably more interested.

When the New York Post broke the laptop story in mid-October 2020, complete with emails that strongly suggested Hunter had sold access to his powerful father, Big Tech did the unthinkable. With the presidential election just over two weeks away, it censored the report.

Following the election, Hunter announced that a U.S. attorney in Delaware had opened an investigation into his finances. You may recall that, when asked for comment on the matter, the president-elect told reporters he was proud of his son.

Politico reported that the investigation went well beyond tax issues. It included “potential money laundering and the younger Biden’s ties abroad.”

With the corrupt Merrick Garland at the helm of the Justice Department, we can easily understand why we haven’t heard anything more about the case.

But the laptop has long since been authenticated. Far more consequential than Hunter’s sex tapes are the allegations that his father, the president of the United States, had knowledge of and may have even been a beneficiary of his dubious foreign business dealings.

This week, the New York Post editorial board called for the appointment of a special counsel to investigate the whole tangled web of corruption surrounding Hunter Biden.

“It’s past time for Garland to explain why he hasn’t named a special counsel,” the editors wrote. “Unless and until Garland produces an explanation for why he’s avoided an independent prosecutor, or his minions actually bring charges, Americans have every reason to suspect politics is standing in the way of justice.”

This is a story of government and media corruption, both of which have become the norm in our society.

Americans used to be alarmed by stories like this. Not anymore. Sadly, this corruption has become entrenched. We live in a world full of sin.

A special counsel investigation and a Republican tsunami in November will help. But it seems to me there is only one way to truly stop the madness. We need to bring God back into our lives.

Donald Trump on Durham Probe: ‘I Hear There’s a Lot Coming’

Martin Walsh
February 4, 2022

Donald Trump revealed this week that he has heard “there’s a lot coming” from Special Counsel John Durham’s investigation into the origins of the Trump-Russia probe.

“I hear there’s a lot coming,” Trump told former top aide Kash Patel on The Epoch Times’ “Kash’s Corner.”

“We’re gonna see what happens. But what he’s doing is one of the most important jobs being done right now in America,” Trump added.

The 45th president said he would like to see Durham’s investigation move faster.

“I wish it were faster,” Trump said. “It is really the crime of the century and changed everything, including the election.”

Investigative reporter John Solomon has a theory about who special counsel John Durham will go after next — the FBI.

During an interview on Fox News, Solomon and host Maria Bartiromo spoke about Durham’s investigation and what might be next.

Russian-born analyst Igor Danchenko — key source for the Steele dossier that alleged ties between the Donald Trump campaign and Russia — was arrested by federal agents last week as part of the Durham investigation.

Solomon explained that he believes Durham is dealing with “two buckets.”

In one “bucket,” there are the last two indictments against officials who were connected to Hillary Clinton and their plan to feed the FBI false information about Trump-Russia conspiracies.

Solomon said the other “bucket” focuses on the FBI and whether agents knowingly mislead the FISA court to obtain warrants to spy on members of Trump’s 2016 campaign.

Solomon also disputes former FBI counterintelligence chief Peter Strzok’s statement on MSNBC last week that the FBI never investigated the Trump campaign in 2016, as Durham’s investigation into the origins of the Mueller probe makes another indictment.

Below is a transcript of Solomon’s comments on Fox News:

PETER STRZOK: Whether intentionally or not, when you look at the balance of those pages, they have subtle dog whistles to these pro-Trump conspiracy theories, statements like “the FBI’s investigation of the Trump campaign relied on certain things.”

Well, there was never an FBI investigation of the Trump campaign. Unless you listen to some kind of far-extreme-right commentators or of folks in Congress who assert there was, but that’s nonsense.

MARIA BARTIROMO: Of course, John, there was no pushback from Rachel Maddow. To say there was no investigation of the Trump campaign. Your reaction? Mind-boggling.

JOHN SOLOMON: Listen, Pete Strzok’s opening electronic communication which starts the Crossfire Hurricane investigation states they are looking at whether individuals associated with the Trump campaign were coordinating conspiring with Russia. When they put the first FISA in, in October, the Trump campaign is mentioned a dozen times in the first FISA, and as I mentioned in the last segment, the allegation is a well-developed conspiracy between individuals associated with the Trump campaign and Russia to hijack the election.

Of course, it was about the campaign. Peter Strzok’s own words said it was about the campaign. He was lying the other night. There’s no other way to say it politely.

BARTIROMO: Of course, they continue to renew FISA warrants against the Trump campaign and they based those warrants to wiretap people like Carter Page, based on that dossier which they knew was false and made up. So I ask you now, what do you think the indictments will look like in the future?

Do you think that John Durham is going to indict people at high levels, big fish, within the FBI?

JOHN SOLOMON: There’s no doubt there is activity inside the grand jury right now aimed at looking at top-level officials of the FBI, and it’s based on this evidence. We all look at the fact that Denchenko was interviewed by the FBI on January 17, and disowned a lot of the things that were said to him.

A lot of people said that should have been the point where the FBI stopped.

But Durham developed really significant evidence that red flags, the stop-now warning signs go all the way back to August when Bruce Orr, in 2016 came to the FBI and said Christopher Steele is dumping a dossier. He hates Trump. He’s hired by Hillary Clinton and most of his information is raw and uncorroborated.

A month after the CIA sends a warning to the FBI, this is something John Ratcliffe declassified, saying Hillary Clinton is trying to play a dirty trick on Donald Trump to tie him to Russia to get out of her e-mail thing. All through the fall, they keep a spreadsheet of what’s right and wrong of the Steele dossier. It’s all wrong. Can’t corroborate, they can’t collaborate the information. The FBI never should have started the investigation and I think that’s where John Durham’s investigation is focused right now.
