In the lead-up to the 2020 election, news concerning President-elect Joe Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, and his laptop that was discovered at a computer repair shop which contained a trove of damaging information concerning his business dealings, never saw the light of day.
According to the Washington Times, Democrats and their friends in the mainstream media and big tech were able to successfully suppress what many believe would have been one of the most impactful political scandals in decades and as a result, Biden went through the 2020 election unscathed.
Not only did Democrats use their media and tech resources to literally suppress the Hunter Biden story, but they also added a new level to the story by accusing Russia of seeding the story prior to the election, somehow blaming President Donald Trump for colluding with Russia to hurt the Biden family.
“It was an unprecedented cover-up across so many entities inside and outside of the government,” said 2016 Trump campaign’s national security adviser J.D. Gordon. “Silicon Valley suppressed an actual scandal related to Hunter Biden while hyping a manufactured scandal over Trump-Russia.”
The scandal even received attention from a group of Republicans in the U.S. Senate who released a report prior to the election that for any other candidate, would have been a nightmare. While the Senate report received some attention from Fox News and smaller conservative outlets, the bulk of the mainstream media pretended as if it didn’t even exist.
“I think it’s outrageous that the Fourth Estate would choose to ignore facts when they are uncovered by Republicans,” Senate Finance Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley said after reporting that the Bidens were likely to have participated in a number of “criminal” financial transactions across the globe.
Fast-forwarding to post-November 3, the media finally acknowledged that Hunter Biden is in some level of jeopardy, as he recently revealed that he’s under federal investigation for matters pertaining to his “tax affairs,” but remained confident that it would all eventually be sorted out with no problem.
According to Fox News, Hunter Biden is either the target of or subject of a grand jury investigation. It was also reported that his troubles extend well beyond simple tax matters.
Many believe that the media coordinated their reporting on Hunter Biden to make sure it was after the election and after Joe Biden was able to claim victory, so as to not hinder his chances at taking the White House.
