The New York Times has confirmed what half of America has known for years now: Hunter Biden’s laptop, and all the damning emails it contained, is a real thing.
In a lengthy report that details the ongoing Federal investigation into Hunter Biden’s tax filings, the Times claims that prosecutors have examined a series of emails between Biden and Devon Archer, who served, along with Biden, on the board of Ukraine’s notorious Burisma energy company. The emails, obtained by the New York Post, came from the laptop Biden never picked up from a Delaware computer repair shop.
The laptop White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki assured the world did not exist, except in the minds of Russian disinformation divas.

And Psaki was far from alone as 50 top US intel officials signed a letter denouncing the claim as ‘disinformation’ in October of 2020.
Here's a letter signed by over 50 top IC officials claiming the Hunter Biden laptop was Russian disinformation.
Includes Clapper, Brennan, Morrell, etc. Joe Biden & Psaki said it too.
Imagine taking any of these people remotely seriously today. https://t.co/rbHZEvBOyW

Despite Psaki’s “dozens of former intel officials,” the New York Times writes, “The email and others in the cache were authenticated by people familiar with them and with the investigation.”
And the emails are damning.
In an April 2014 email to Archer, Biden discusses an upcoming and as yet unannounced trip to Ukraine by his then Vice President father, Joe Biden. While Hunter doesn’t name Biden by name, he does call him “my guy” and warns that, while the announcement of the trip should “be characterized as part of our advice and thinking… what he will say and do is out of our hands.”
Hunter Biden states the announcement “could be a really good thing or it could end up creating too great an expectation.”
“We need to temper expectations regarding that visit,” he added.
He also expressed concerns that Burisma officials may expect him to cross lines he would not legally be permitted to cross.
Burisma officials, Hunter Biden wrote, “need to know in no uncertain terms that we will not and cannot intervene directly with domestic policymakers, and that we need to abide by FARA and any other U.S. laws in the strictest sense across the board.”
FARA is the Foreign Agents Registration Act, which, according to the Department of Justice website, requires “certain agents of foreign principals who are engaged in political activities or other activities specified under the statute to make periodic public disclosure of their relationship with the foreign principal, as well as activities, receipts and disbursements in support of those activities.”
To avoid any potential FARA fumbles, Biden suggested Burisma hire Boies Schiller Flexner, the law firm at which he was employed at the time, to “devise a media plan and arrange for legal protections and mitigate U.S. domestic negative press regarding the current leadership if need be.”
Another 2015 email chronicles a plan by Hunter Biden and Archer to invite foreign business associates, including one exec from Burisma, to a Washington restaurant that the Big Guy himself, VP Biden, would just happen to make an appearance.
Not surprisingly, the big takeaway from the New York Time’s article isn’t that the laptop that so many within the Joe Biden administration tried to dismiss as Russian meddling is actually very real and chock full of very problematic emails, it that Hunter paid his taxes.
Somehow, this makes everyone who discussed the disturbing contents of the laptop in the days leading up to the 2020 election foiled “GOP conspiracy theorists” who have suffered a blow of some sort.
It is a spin on the story that is being picked up and used in attempt to distract from the reality of the laptop.

“All of MAGA needs to line up and Kiss Hunter’s Ass,” tweeted one user, adding that Hunter should start suing.

But it’s a spin that isn’t sticking with those on social media, where people are seeing the story as confirmation of mainstream media’s failure to report the news.
Yahoo! News chief investigative reporter Michael Isikoff apparently didn’t see the confirmation of Hunter’s laptop coming — something National Review’s Jeff B. finds hard to believe.
“Wait… you didn’t see this coming?” he asked. “[Because] if what you didn’t see coming was the NYT copping to the truth, then okay. But the truth about Biden’s laptop was known long ago; its intentional suppression by media outlets/platforms is an enduring disgrace that has never been addressed.”
