The New York Times falsely claims Hunter Biden’s laptop was ‘stolen’


The New York Times falsely claimed on Sunday that Hunter Biden’s laptop had been “stolen”, when in fact it had been abandoned at the computer repair shop where he had taken it and who had attempted to contact him.

As Breitbart News and others have reported for years, quoting repair store owner John Paul Mac Isaac, “Hunter Biden dropped the computer off at his store on April 12, 2019 to perform a ‘recovery of data.” He says he called Biden the next day to let him know the recovery was complete, but Hunter never got it back.

The laptop was never “stolen”. It was abandoned and the store took legal possession of it, according to documents that Hunter Biden himself signed when dropping off the laptop for repair. He never reported it stolen or missing.

However, the TimeMichael M. Grynbaum, reporting on last Friday’s report by Matt Taibbi into the internal deliberations of Twitter (now owned by Elon Musk) that led to the October 2020 laptop censorship, wrote:

Mr. Musk and Mr. Taibbi called the exchanges evidence of rank censorship and pernicious liberal influence. Many others – even some staunch Twitter critics – were less impressed, saying the exchanges simply showed a group of executives seriously debating how to handle an unconfirmed report based on information from a stolen laptop.

Readers picked up on the false claim:

The discussion on Twitter had nothing to do with the “theft” of the laptop, but rather the unsubstantiated claim that the hardware of the laptop had been “hacked”, which was used as a pretext for censorship the story.

In 2018 and 2020, Peter Schweizer, Senior Breitbart Contributor and President of the Government Accountability Institute, published secret empires and Profiles in corruption. Each book reached No. 1 on the New York Times bestseller list and revealed how Hunter Biden and Joe Biden flew on Air Force Two in 2013 for China before Hunter’s company signed a $1.5 billion deal with a subsidiary of the Chinese government’s Bank of China in just 10 days. after the trip. Schweizer’s work also exposed the Biden family’s other vast and lucrative foreign dealings and cronyism.

Breitbart political editor Emma-Jo Morris’ investigative work on the Hunter Biden”portable from hell” also made international headlines when she and Miranda Devine revealed that Joe Biden was intimately involved in Hunter’s business, even appearing to own a 10% stake in a company the scion has formed with officials at the highest levels of the Chinese Communist Party. .
