DNI Ratcliffe: Hunter Biden's emails are 'not part' of Russian disinformation campaign
The intelligence community is not investigating this!
If you have read this in the news, it is fake news!

Someone showed me this, however, I am not sure how twitter works (I never use it), not if this is what it says it is.
Supposedly it is Hunter Biden's signature on paperwork from the computer repair shop.

As we know, your pattern is to sift through the mountains of information on the internet looking for anything which you think might support the particular position you've decided to take on a particular issue. A lot of people who have a strong interest in a particular issue do similar things. Do you ever try to seriously assess the likely veracity of these kinds of sources? Do you ever look for counter-evidence? Or do you simply take the attitude that if it appears to support your position, post it?

Given the fact that the FBI came forward with it, I think it is solid evidence. If anything, I think many here are more like you describe than I. It is true that I set out to look for certain details, but I have good cause for it. I learned those facts and come up with those sources falsifying the crap that I see here often. Or didn't you notice that I often come up with answer that elude most?

Ah, the FBI did not come forward with it, it is a doc from the computer shop. The FBI ties in by a sigbature on a subpoena for hunter last december. The name is Joshua Wilson, specialist in child pornography.

It is confirmed. The 'big guy' in H. Biden's email is Joe Biden. It means that he gas actively lied abojt this publicly and to reporters. Plus, that he personally is involved with deals with the military wing of the CCP.

I wanted to point this one out. I think e eryone read this CNN story:
https://edition.cnn.com/2020/10/16/POLI ... Hx1_3lXwss
"US authorities investigating if recently published emails are tied to Russian disinformation effort targeting Biden"

However, the DNI released the following statement:
https://m.youtube.com/watch?fbclid=IwAR ... oGyMvqLV5o
"DNI Ratcliffe: Hunter Biden's emails are 'not part' of Russian disinformation campaign"

That does beg the question what that blatantly false news article by CNN is. We know that the Biden mails show dealings with the military (propaganda and censorship) wing of the CCP. We know that the emails show an incredible amount of dirt on the Biden's, which could easily be used to control the Biden's. Plus, we have all seen the news jump on Trump like carrion birds, while covering the Bidens.

So, again, I point to this:
https://www.theguardian.com/news/2018/d ... xi-jinping
"Beijing is buying up media outlets and training scores of foreign journalists to ‘tell China’s story well’ – as part of a worldwide propaganda campaign of astonishing scope and ambition."
https://thenationalpulse.com/politics/e ... ScSJRQf9kY
"TSINGHUA UNIVERSITY’S JOURNALISM SCHOOL, WHICH VOWS TO PRODUCE JOURNALISTS ADHERENT TO THE CHINESE COMMUNIST PARTY’S STANDARDS OF “MARXIST JOURNALISM,” ENJOYS SUPPORT FROM A HOST OF AMERICAN CORPORATES AND ESTABLISHMENT MEDIA OUTLETS SUCH AS BLOOMBERG, CNN, THE NEW YORK TIMES, AND FACEBOOK.
CORPORATE COLLABORATORS.".




CCPNN?
