The controversial email and pictures that were recovered from the laptop of former Vice President’s son was confirmed to be “authentic.”

According to the assessment made by Director of National Intelligence, John Ratcliffe, the emails and pictures that were retreived from the laptop of Hunter Biden were not part of a Russian disinformation scheme, contrary to the allegations of Biden campaign.

This assessment made by the DNI officer, Ratcliffe was later on agreed upon by the FBI and DOJ.

The concurrence by these bureaus dismisses the earlier claims that these emails were just part of Russian disinformation to smear the reputation of Joe Biden. 


The emails were NOT part of the Russian disinformation

Senior federal officials informed Fox News last Tuesday that the bureau has Hunter Biden’s computer in their custody. 

This controversial computer which was allegedly owned by the younger Biden contains communications that could implicate Joe Biden. Including in this are Hunter Biden’s business dealings with international firms while Joe Biden was still sitting as the Vice President.

The emails also shows the involvement of the former Vice President, Joe Biden in his son’s business dealings, contrary to his consistent statement that he “never” talked to his son about his business dealings. 

The communications retrieved also shows how the younger Biden seeks to cash in on his father’s former position as the Vice President of the United States with his dealings with Ukrainian and Chinese businesses.

This statement made by Ratcliffe debunked the previous accusations of Adam Schiff, Democratic House Intel Chair, stating that the documents were just meant to “smear” Joe Biden’s campaign trail and that the emails “comes from the Kremlin.”

In addition to this, DNI officer, Ratcliffe also stated that “It’s funny that some of the people that complain the most about intelligence being politicized are the ones politicizing the intelligence,”

Furthermore, a law enforcement officer also stated that these emails in question were authentic and real. 

FBI will not comment on the remarks made by Ratcliffe

In a letter addressed to the Republican chairman of the Senate Homeland Security Committee, the FBI stated that they will not be making comments about the remarks that were made by Ratcliffe.

The bureau further stated that they have “nothing more to add” about the public statement that was made by the Director of National Intelligence. 

In case there are actionable intelligence that will be developed later on, the FBI clarified that they will assess it in careful deliberation with the Intelligence Community. 

This remarks by the bureau was made hours after The President urged Bill Barr, the Attorney General, to “act fast” and to appoint a special counsel who will look into this issue before election day. 

The President was also quoted saying that ‘This is major corruption and this has to be known about before the election,’
