DNI John Ratcliffe says info on Hunter Biden laptop isn’t Russian disinformation

Hunter Biden's overseas business dealings have been the subject of intense scrutiny of late, including his ties to the Ukrainian company Burisma, which he made while Joe Biden, as vice president, was responsible for Ukraine policy during the Obama administration.

"Good morning to everyone except Presidential Debate Commission members who changed focus of final debate away from foreign policy", the Trump campaign's senior adviser Jason Miller tweeted on Monday morning.

Perino said, "There's this other issue that Peter Doocy just mention that Joe Biden hasn't responded to questions about the emails that were found on laptops purported to be Hunter Biden's".

"The New York Post never asked the Biden campaign about the critical elements of this story...moreover, we have reviewed Joe Biden's official schedules from the time and no meeting, as alleged by the New York Post, ever took place", Bates said in a statement.

The best evidence that Trump's strategy of focusing on Hunter Biden is backfiring?

Trump referred to the device - which a Wilmington computer fix store owner says he provided to the attorney for Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani months ago after a person brought it in and failed to collect it - as the 'laptop from hell'.

Giuliani praised Biden for picking Harris as his running mate and argued that the former vice president would be capable of bipartisanship and incorporating progressive views.

Asked by a reporter about the Post report, Biden said: "I have no response".

"For more than a year, Trump has been desperate to create a scandal around his opponent", Schiff said.

"Trump was caught and impeached over it", Schiff said.

While the story might energize the president's base, it won't help him win over voters who are not already supporting his reelection.

Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey also reiterated the company's plans to no longer block certain links and instead use labels to inform users.

Despite the mea culpa, a Republican-controlled Senate committee is seeking appearances by Dorsey and Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg to testify about alleged anti-conservative bias.

Ratcliffe pressed further, arguing that "the only intelligence that Adam Schiff gets is the intelligence that we, the intelligence community, give him, and we have given him no such intelligence".

But here is what President Trump needs to understand: This election is not going to turn on Hunter Biden.

Republicans have asked for the Federal Bureau of Investigation to reveal what it knows about the laptop.

"Over the last 24 hours, we've received significant feedback (from critical to supportive) about how we enforced our Hacked Materials Policy yesterday", Gadde tweeted.

The FBI has reportedly probed whether the emails are part of a Russian disinformation campaign to interfere in the 2020 election, as dozens of former intelligence officials suspect.
