(Tea Party 247) – By now you’ve had to have heard about the New York Post’s story about an email from 2015 that shows a Ukrainian adviser for the corrupt Burisma thanking Hunter Biden for the “opportunity” to meet with his father.
Upon the release of this email social media networks Twitter and Facebook frantically began banning it and anyone who shared the story. A move Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey would later admit was wrong, but that’s only because they got called out so heavily for it. Nonetheless, the social media giants did the damage and their fervent opposition to the circulation of the story was confirmation enough of it’s credibility in the minds of many Americans.
Fortunately, Americans got further credibility confirmation as Fox News went on to confirm from a source connected with other email chains on the hard drive that they were, in fact, authentic.
Biden’s campaign chalked the story up to “Russia disinformation” and announced that the meeting wasn’t on Biden’s “official” schedule from the time so that, apparently, meant it didn’t happen but even left-leaning Politico pointed out that just because something didn’t appear on his “official” schedule doesn’t mean it didn’t happen.
The email was released by the New York Post story on Wednesday of last week and it wasn’t until Friday that a reporter finally questioned Joe Biden about it. Mind you, this period of time between Wed and Fri including a televised ABC town hall in which Joe Biden answered questions by host George Stephanopolous and supposed “undecided” audience members. The entire sham was likely scripted and asking Biden about the New York Post story wasn’t in the script.

When finally asked about the email Biden called it a “smear campaign” and left it at that.
The stories from Biden and his campaign just don’t seem to be convincing anyone and now members of Congress are pushing for the FBI to take a closer look at Joe Biden’s actual schedule for the day(s) in question.
Senator Ron Johnson (R-WI) requested that the FBI answer questions about the alleged meeting between Biden and the Burisma official on Fox News Channel’s “Sunday Morning Futures” broadcast.
“I think it’s pretty odd that quite honestly the Biden campaign all they’ve done to deny this is to say that the meeting one of these e-mails revealed that Vice President Biden had with the number three in control of Burisma never showed up on his official calendar. There’s all kinds of meetings that didn’t show up on his official calendar. This wouldn’t surprise me if this one didn’t. The first thing after we got contacted by the whistleblower the day after we issued our report on Ukraine was, you know, we contact the FBI and determine is this story true? Can you verify any of this? And took a couple of days to basically give us no information.”
He went on to say that he sent another letter to the FBI because they have a “duty to inform” them if they believe that the story was, in fact, Russian disinformation. He said that the FBI should be giving a defensive briefing to inform them of what information the whistleblower brought forward that was “fraudulent” because that would be a crime. He explained that Congress is trying to figure out what the FBI knew and when they knew it. He pointed out that the bigger picture is that if the FBI knew about the emails and if they are genuine why would they have sat on this information when it could have played a crucial role in the impeachment hearings of President Trump.
“Are they covering up just because Hunter Biden might be engaged in things that also maybe should have been investigated and possibly prosecuted? Do we have two systems of justice, one for Democrats and one for Republicans one for the well-connected versus one for the rest of the Americans? That’s really the larger issue here at play.”
Johnson went on to explain that this isn’t just a “standard investigation where if the FBI doesn’t indict somebody that everything remains confidential” but that if these emails are true and that the Joe Biden was taking cuts from his family members’ salaries who were involved with foreign governments at a time when he was in a position to influence foreign policy, the American people “need to know before they go to the polls.”
Unfortunately, millions of Americans have already cast their votes via early mail-in voting. Johnson is, nonetheless, right. The American people need to know to what extent the emails are credible and for how long the FBI knew about them.
The Biden family has woven a massive web of lies and deceit and it’s time for it all to come to light.
