The firehose of news about Hunter Biden’s laptop is still on full blast. Mark Levin, on Sunday’s LIFE, LIBERTY & LEVIN, speculated that we might have a real-life “Manchurian Candidate” in the Oval Office. And he implicated the media –- the “Big Tech oligarchs” –- that covered up for the Bidens by censoring the Hunter laptop story before the 2020 election and afterwards, calling it “Russian disinformation.”

Levin pointedly mentioned Chris Wallace’s role in that. Recall that when Donald Trump tried to bring it up during a debate, Wallace refused to allow it. He also noted that The New York Times, now admitting the laptop really is Hunter’s, maintained as recently as September 2021 that it was (sigh) Russian disinformation.

This withholding of evidence absolutely was election interference.

Levin believes the NYT and also the Washington Post are writing about this now because they’ve been tipped off that prosecutors are moving fast. Much as they might like to, it’s hard for them to ignore developments like this, as reported in WaPo: “...The new documents –- which include a signed copy of a $1 million legal retainer, emails related to the wire transfers, and $3.8 million in consulting fees [from CEFC –- the CCP’s oil and gas conglomerate] that are confirmed in new bank records and agreements signed by Hunter Biden –- illustrate the ways in which his family profited from relationships built over Joe Biden’s decades in public service.”

There’s much more on the laptop tying Hunter to CEFC. As WaPo reported a few days ago, according to a contract signed in August 2017, Hunter would be paid a one-time retainer of $500,000 and would then receive a monthly stipend of $100,000, with his uncle James (Joe Biden’s brother) getting $65,000 a month.” Nice work if you can get it.

According to WaPo, the money started flowing “almost immediately, with the first incoming wire of $5 million arriving on August 8, 2017.” Documents on Hunter’s laptop to that effect were corroborated by identical bank statements [Sen. Chuck] Grassley’s office obtained from Cathay Bank for an account jointly held by Hunter Biden and CEFC executives...”

WaPo obtained a report from the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network at the Treasury Department saying the transactions were flagged as potential money laundering, political corruption or other financial crimes. No wonder they’re thinking an indictment might be imminent.

There’s much more, and this is just the part about China, not Ukraine. (It includes that email verified by Hunter’s former partner Tony Bolulinski that specifies “10 [percent] held by H for the Big Guy.”) Of course, WaPo and the NYT have obviously tried to “help” the President by distancing him as much as possible from the activities of his brother and son. But, as Levin says, this laptop has “the names of individuals, it’s got dates on it, it’s got times on it, it’s got a thousand methods for confirming the authenticity of what’s on the laptop. Where are the media?” This information was known by them before the election, but the establishment media are only now talking about it. In contrast, the reporters at the New York Post, Miranda Devine in particular, deserve high praise for putting it all out there, raising the ire of the propagandists running social media.

Levin called for a federal special counsel, as opposed to the politicized DOJ led by Merrick Garland, to set up an office to look into all foreign dealings of the Biden family. There is solid evidence that President Biden lied multiple times in claiming not to know anything about Hunter’s business dealings and saying reports of wrongdoing had been “totally discredited.” “We need a Biden Crime Family Committee,” Levin said, “and we need one right now. We need to know what the hell’s going on. Communist China’s our biggest enemy, and they’re staring us down. It’s my contention we have a man in the Oval Office who is by all evidence corrupt --- bought off --- and we need it now.”

Ron Klain, Biden’s chief of staff, went on ABC’s “This Week” on Sunday to tell George Stefanopoulos the President is confident Hunter didn’t break the law. But to cover his bases, Klain said, “These are actions by Hunter and his brother. They’re private matters. And they certainly are something that no one at the White House is involved in.”

Bonchie at RedState.com explains how Klain made an inadvertent admission. Right after saying Joe was confident Hunter hadn’t broken the law, Klain said Joe had had no contact with the DOJ. So, if he had no knowledge of his son’s business and hadn’t talked to the attorney general, how would he know whether or not Hunter had broken the law? Answer: he wouldn’t. Biden’s lying in one statement or the other, or perhaps in both.

Similarly, the White House “pointed to” statements made in the fall of 2020 that Hunter and James Biden had committed no crimes but went on to dodge the question of whether or not the President might have had conversations about pardoning them.

We do know, however, that Biden HAS had conversations about prosecuting Trump, over January 6. And this story probably was leaked to put a bee in AG Garland’s bonnet. I thought the President wasn’t supposed to use his office to prosecute a political rival.

Kyle Becker reports that a revealing text between Hunter and his daughter Naomi from December of 2018 has been verified. Here’s what it says at the end: “I hope you all can do what I did and pay for everything for this entire family for 30 years. It’s really hard. But don’t worry unlike Pop I won’t make you give me half your salary.”

Rudy Giuliani discussed this text two weeks before the election with Martha MacCallum on FOX News. He said that, yes, he could verify that it was legit. Back then, the media --- well, not Martha --- painted Giuliani as a dingbat, and he later turned out to be 100 percent correct about this. Read the transcript of their interview at the link.

Finally, John Solomon has a must-read piece in which he tells the story of a retired intelligence office, Army Lt. Col. Tony Shaffer, who was approached by one of the intel agencies ahead of the 2020 election to try to help them acquire a copy of Hunter’s hard drive. “We don’t have a political dog in the fight,” they told Shaffer. “What our concern is, is that if there’s compromising information on that hard drive, this is before the election, the President could be compromised to the level of owing either China or Ukraine something.” Goodness, that sounds like a legitimate and very serious concern.

But according to Shaffer, in late October, the intel leadership abruptly said, “Stop, don’t touch it. We don’t want to know.”

Also, regarding the now-infamous letter signed by 51 former intel officials to say the laptop had “earmarks” of Russian disinformation, Shaffer said national security experts normally stay out of presidential politics, and that the signatories should be barred by law from holding an inside-government national security job ever again. Think that'll happen?

    DC must return to sanity. The entire Biden family must be investigated. Mr. Durham, are you listening? Joe's bragging about how he withheld taxpayer money from Ukraine until the Prosecutor called off the dogs in their investigation of Burisma is damning enough. Using taxpayer funds for personal gain?? Anyone else see this corruption? (Yes, we're scared. And with good reason.)

    I’m going to tell whomever is reading this that myself and my wife and others in my family and many friends ARE SCARED. If this was a sci-fi move I think it would be a flop. No one would believe any of this stuff COULD happen here in America. And look at what else is happening in the world. We have outright liars and completely incompetent people running America. Putting their personal agendas first over any common sense rules or the Constitution. Be scared people. The bad people are working hard to win. And they are everywhere.

    The democrat's have gotten by with way too much for way too long. It is about time the American people were told the truth about Biden and his family they all are crooked. I do hope someone has enough of what ever it takes to uncover the truth about the Biden family's crimes and see to it that they are held accountable for them.

    Mike, I was in the US Navy from 1966-70. I had a Top Secret Cryptographic Security Clearance. While waiting to be cleared for that I was very concerned that my “wild” high school days would make me a security risk! There was the usual “prodigal son” high school drinking, girl chasing stuff but nothing criminal.
    I can only shake my head in disbelief when reading about our President and his family’s corruption with Chinese Communists and thus the Communist Party.
    I’m a 75 yr. licensed, ordained S. Baptist preacher of the Gospel. I see and understand what our enemy the devil and his has and is doing.
    As our LORD calls you to my remembrance I pray for you.
    Thank you for your ministry for HIM.
    In HIM,
    David Blair

    LEAVE ME A COMMENT, I READ THEM!

    this hasn't been true ever since you began hiding behind that new website (huckabee.tv) and that new beard Mike - - - - - - -

    I really really really wish it still was true ! ! ! ! ! ! !

    my personal bona fides include that I was 1 of the 4 'regulars' of the Huckabee Show in NYC as per the audience producer Jennifer Lynn Ruth Rhule - - - - - - -

    I'm also the only veteran of Israel Experience 2012 that David probably still remembers (if you ask him) - - - - - - -

    finally, I'm the guy who donated all those red Huckabee45 polo shirts you guys wore in Iowa during that campaign you blissfully highlight in the new relaxium ads you released - - - - - - -

    I still love you Mike but wish that you were still true to your words - - - - - - -

    keep smiling my friend, keep smiling - - - - - - -

    I hope, for the first time in my 67 years, that the Biden family is tried for their crimes. No politician at his level in my lifetime has ever been prosecuted. It makes you very doubtful that anything will happen. Hunter may go down, but his Father should as well. Not going to believe it until I see it.

    Do we have the names and pictures of those 51 former intel officials? Need to post them.

    Mike,
    This Hunter stuff coming out now that we all knew was covered up before the election disgusts me. Everyone who took part in this massive coverup should be investigated and arrested and charged for their crimes. I bet All the sheeple I know who think Trump is bad won't even believe any of this stuff is true nor will they care. Unless they have seen the light of this past horrible year.
    Thanks for doing what you do.

    I always look forward to reading your commentary--thank you very much for the well-written emails each day.
    Just a small note, though, in the Oberlin College judgment. As you see, the "e" at the end of "judge" is dropped when "ment" is added. It's just a small pet peeve of mine!

    Mike, thank you (and Sarah) for all you have done and will continue to do for our country to seek the truth! We are in bad shape with this so-called President in office but hopefully people will wake up to the fact and vote him and his fellow "liberals" (I say communists) out of office or at least impeach him and the likes of Pelosi, Schumer, and the rest of their ilk! The Lord is waiting but He is merciful. However, we need Jesus more than ever. I'm a Roman Catholic since I was 15 years old. I cringe every time Biden says he's a practicing Catholic. The only thing he practices is lying and deceiving and that goes for Nancy Pelosi. Lord help us Jesus!!
