The infamous laptop abandoned by Hunter Biden at a Delaware computer repair shop is once again causing problems for his father in the White House.
The Daily Mail reported last week that, in a video the outlet claimed was found on the laptop, Biden admitted to a woman that he had a different computer stolen while his father was running for president — and he even conceded that he was worried the thieves might use it for blackmail.
A leaked video
The video, which was shared by the Daily Mail but has not been independently verified as legitimate, reportedly depicts Biden and an unidentified woman, who are both naked, discussing the loss of a prior laptop.
“They have videos of me doing this… They have videos of me doing crazy [expletive] sex,” the president’s son says in the clip, according to the Daily Mail.
“My computer, I had taken tons of like, just left like that cam on. And he would always put in a passcode and all that, you know what I mean? It was f***** crazy s***. And somebody stole it during that period of time,” Biden explained.
Asked by the woman if was concerned the theft would result in blackmail, the president’s son admitted so.
“Yeah in some way yeah,” he said, mentioning his father’s presidential campaign. “If they do, he also knows I make like a gazillion dollars,” Hunter Biden reportedly added.
Biden also reportedly mentioned during the conversation a 35-year-old Russian woman who he described as a “really nice, pure brunette.” Biden said his computer had been stolen shortly after an encounter with the woman.
Notably, it’s unclear if the woman had any connection to the theft and whether the thieves had any ties to Russia. The Daily Mail suggested so in their report, but the video apparently leaves the question open.
The report also doesn’t offer any proof that the video is authentic. But constitutional law professor Jonathan Turley wrote in a recent blog post that either way, this video is “major news.”
“Either the President’s son admitted that Russians have blackmail material on him or the media (or others) have created a fake videotape and falsely framed Biden,” he said.
“Imagine if a laptop contained videos of Donald Trump Jr. having sex with an alleged prostitute while talking about how Russians likely have blackmail material on him,” Turley pressed. “The media would reach critical mass with wall-to-wall coverage.” For Hunter Biden, however, it’s radio silence. What gives?
