US investigating if emails connected to Russia disinformation against Biden 1

 

US authorities are investigating whether recently published emails that purport to detail the business dealings of Joe Biden's son in Ukraine and China are connected to an ongoing Russian disinformation effort targeting the former vice president's campaign, a US official and a congressional source briefed on the matter said.
The conservative-leaning New York Post claimed in a series of articles this week that it obtained "smoking-gun" emails about Hunter Biden and his dealings in Ukraine. CNN has not determined the authenticity of the emails.
President Donald Trump and his allies have used this topic to smear the Bidens over the past year and seized on the recent articles to attack Biden in the final weeks of the presidential election. The specific new allegations touch on the same topics as the Kremlin's ongoing disinformation campaign against the Bidens, which the US intelligence community said this summer was intended to weaken Biden's candidacy against Trump.
The FBI is leading the investigation, the official and congressional source said. NBC was first to report the inquiry.
The probe is part of a larger investigation into Russian disinformation that dates back to before the impeachment inquiry last fall. The alleged disinformation campaign is aimed at tying the former vice president to his son's dealings with the Ukrainian energy company Burisma, according to US officials familiar with the matter.
The New York Post says it obtained the emails through two Trump confidants: His personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani and his former chief strategist Steve Bannon.
Giuliani has openly coordinated with a known Russian agent to promote disinformation about the Bidens. The Washington Post reported Thursday the White House, and Trump personally, were warned in 2019 that Giuliani "was being used to feed Russian misinformation" to the President. Separately, Bannon was recently charged by the Justice Department with orchestrating a million-dollar fraud scheme and accused of deceiving thousands of donors to his nonprofit.
In a Fox News interview Friday, Giuliani said Trump never mentioned the warning to him and that he hasn't been told by US intelligence officials that he is peddling Russian disinformation.

    Rudy is batshit crazy, pun intended.

  9. Of course, it is closely related with the Russian interference. Rudy has been busy in and out of the country even after his associates were arrested. And we saw him sitting and talking to one of the corrupt Ukrainian former official, who has had connection with the Russian operatives. This is fact the Washington Post and other national independent journals revealed early this year. Already one or two journal articles broke down the lies and false claims of Rudy’s story.

    • All foreign diplomats are not corrupt. Biden was so obviously abusing his position that his son was allowed to fly around on Air Force 2 doing crack cocaine and banging infected skanks while the US tax payers foot the bill.

      Giuliani is a career politician & lawyer so I’m going to say Giuliani deserves to earn a little on the side more than them lying skumbags “the Bidens”

    • @Glyn david You don’t know about the background of that money Biden talked about? It was because that Ukrainian prosecutor was corrupt (verified by the Ukrainian government official to the Ukrainian President) and when the Ukrainian government and Biden together tried to ask him to investigate the corruption at the Brisma, that prosecutor rejected and did not do anything. The corrupt orosecymutor ran away from the government, as he was fired because he refused to investigate the corruption, which was because the prosecutor was involved.
      Biden gave some money to his son in order to help Hunter get out of the drug problem. The money didn’t have anything to do with the corruption at Brisma. You should check out the real facts about all the bacjgeounds.
      This information was already reported in several newspaper, not social media such as Twitter or Facebook where this kind of misinformation has spread around.
      If you can read, do not watch or listen to “social media” where numerous wrong information spread a quickly. Reading the whole article gives you a light to the true fact.

    Russia is going to turn on Trump.and the rest of them.Putin said if he have to work with Binden. He will. Trump is going to fall on his face.along with the rest of then.

  14. Comey effed up 4 years ago with the emails. Now they want another emails scandal to win 4 more years.

  15. The sources on this story are Rudy Giuliani and Steve Bannon? The story was published by the Rupert Murdoch owned, tabloid rag New York Post whose entire raison d’etre is the dissemination of sensationalist disinformation? Well then, of course it must be true. When have these people ever lied to us before? Steve Bannon has already been charged with defrauding the very people who support Donald Trump. Why would he have any reason to keep Trump in power? I’m sure he won’t be looking for a pardon when his case goes to trial next year.

  16. Experienced, trusted people working in intelligence: “Russia absolutely interfered in the 2016 presidential election. Without a doubt. Period. We have concrete evidence. Want to see? Please read it. Please”

    “Well, Putin said he didn’t very strongly and he’s such a nice man that my own intelligence agents must be lying, ergo fake news”.

    US intelligence, repeatedly, for a year: “Putin has put a $100,000 bounty on US service men and women in Afghanistan. We have compiled a list of possible ways we can respond.”

    **cowardly crickets**.

    Shady bullshit “evidence” produced by scurrilous sources and published in an openly pro-Trump rag considered one rung above the National Enquirer in respectability: “GUILTY! SMOKING GUN! NOW YOU HAVE TO THE CANCEL THE ELECTION! ARREST EVVVVERRRRYBODDDYYY!!”

  17. Who would you trust to look after America’s interest. The intelligence agency or a dead duck 4 year president who will come and go. America v trump and Putin. Simple.

  18. I don’t know they have a lot of pictures and personal emails to family members from Hunter Biden.

  19. “the deep state tricked me into doing illegal things, it’s their fault I’m a crook”
