Who is this person and what do they have to do with the laptop? Never heard of them.

They're the key witness causing the Hunter Biden investigation. Without them, the entire case crumbles and is based on nothing.

Interesting. I'm not sure that the entire case was built on what this person said. There are plenty of other witnesses, shell companies, video & audio, records, SARs, & payment receipts. Is it standard practice for an alleged business entirely based on access and not anything else of value to have 20 shell companies? Maybe there is someone here that has this type of business model and would know.

So, this Smirnov was a Confidential Human Source(CHS) for the FBI and was used in other cases as a witness. I wonder what those other cases were? Could he have lied in those cases too?

BREAKING: Joe Biden says the investigation into him and Hunter Biden "should be dropped."

Look at the smile on his face.

Ignore the six banks that submitted 170 suspicious activity reports to the Treasury Department accusing the Biden family of being involved in money laundering, human trafficking, and tax fraud.

Disregard the bank records showing the Biden family using twenty shell companies to launder millions of illegally obtained dollars from China, Russia, and Ukraine to nine family members without ever registering as foreign agents in violation of the Foreign Agent Registration Act.

Overlook the IRS whistleblowers who said the Justice Department didn't allow them to charge Hunter Biden with felonies, rejected search warrants and witness interviews, and prohibited investigations into Joe Biden.

The investigation "should be dropped" because the same DOJ that indicted a Biden whistleblower, prosecuted Biden's leading political opponent, and is rightfully accused of shielding the Biden family now claims that an FBI informant lied when accusing Joe Biden and Hunter Biden of accepting Ukrainian bribes from Burisma.

Ignore the CEO of Burisma's conviction in Ukraine for bribing officials with millions in cash and overlook the fact that Hunter Biden received millions from him without registering under the Foreign Agent Registration Act or paying his taxes.

The investigation into Joe and Hunter Biden "should be dropped."

I think a lot of what you posted is allegations and not proven. After 9/11 banks are required to fill out a report on anything suspicious or face penalties. They file millions of them a year now. The banks accused the Biden’s of money laundering, human trafficking, and tax fraud? That sounds like a maga embellishment. Cite your source on that.

You talk as if theses are all proven things. They laundered money from China, Russia and Ukraine in these 20 shell companies? That’s proven in court or is it allegations by Maga? Cite you source on that?

The big iron clad Biden whistle blower is charged with lying. Ouch! The 1000 mules guy charged with lying. Ouch! FOX News charged with lying and fined hundreds of millions. Ouch! Trump charged with lying on his taxes, lying about his mistress, lying about Jan 6, lying about rape and defamation. Most of his first election team charged with crimes including lying. His lawyer sent to prison.

Gods chosen one.

MSNBC not charged with lying about Jan 6.CNN not charged with lying about Jan 6. Biden not charged with any crime. Hillary not charged with any crime.

There are so many different charges against Trump in so many different places by so many different entities and somehow they are all part or Joe Biden’s master deep state plans? The evidence is presented in real courts of law with real judges and real juries. Maga doesn’t believe in courts or evidence presented in a courtroom or testimony presented in a courtroom. Their courtroom is whatever Trump makes up and his cult spread.

Between 2014 and 2019 (before the pandemic), the suspicious receipt of government payments SAR filing category averaged around 4000 to 5000 filings yearly. In 2020 this figure jumped to a lofty 75,000. In 2021, an astronomical 142,000.Jun 30, 2023

There has been a huge spike in them in the past 2 years, but when Biden's family did them their were small amount of them reported each yr.

Blah blah, but they don't have any evidence that has held up in court. If they have evidence of wrongdoing, show it. Take it to a courtroom. They haven't, and likely they can't.

This story is nuts. Either the key members of the House GOP are complete rubes or else willfully worked with Russia to launder misinformation to try to impeach the POTUS.

Russia, Russia, Russia! It's the slant that Dems can't quit. It's laughable and yet completely expected at this point.

Dan Goldman is the epitome of a useful idiot, and it's exactly why he continues to be trotted out in front of the media over and over. If you look up the word 'Tool' in the dictionary, his picture is next to it.

I remember a page in my notes about the different people in Trumps orbit with ties to Russia. I saved it from way back. Dems didn’t get over it because the sheer amount of people with Russian ties who were on Trumps campaign was ridiculous. Many went to jail for lying about it. Trump pardoned some like Manafort who was a Russian lobbyist in Ukraine who accidentally forgot to tell the US he was paid millions as a foreign lobbyist trying to get the Ukraine people to side with Russia. Rex Tillerman, CEO of Exxon. Received a fancy medal from Putin himself. Exxon stood to gain a lucrative contract worth billions in Russia IF the US sanctions were lifted. I knew you would want to read all of them in2ition. They are old links. Some might not even open now.

My slant was backed by evidence such as Trump associates being arrested and charged with crimes. 11 Trump associates convicted in just the first year of Trumps presidency.

There’s an old saying that goes something like this: You can judge a man by the company he keeps.
