Joe Biden’s campaign is keeping a low profile, according to the New York Post, following explosive reports from the outlet last week that revealed the Post had obtained the contents of a hard drive said to have once belonged to the Democrat nominee’s son, Hunter Biden.
Among the material found on the drive is an email appearing to show Vadym Pozharskyi, an adviser to the Ukranian energy company Burisma Holdings, thanking Hunter Biden for arranging a meeting with his father, then-Vice President Joe Biden.
Though social media platforms quickly moved to suppress the Post‘s reports, they were apparently enough to force the former VP off the campaign trail. Over the weekend, Republican operative Steve Guest tweeted a clip from CBS News’ Face the Nation that showed CBS correspondent Ed O’Keefe saying Biden “will not be seen again after today until Thursday night in Nashville at that next debate.”
“An elaborate conspiracy”
Guest pointed out in his tweet that while the Biden campaign is hiding away, no one on his staff has disputed the authenticity of the emails or what was contained in them.
“REMINDER: Joe Biden and his campaign have not disputed the authenticity of the bombshell emails which detail the extensive corruption of the Biden family,” he tweeted.
Meanwhile, David Limbaugh, author and brother of talk radio host Rush Limbaugh, said the fact that Democrats would even nominate such a questionable candidate shows they cannot be trusted.
“The Democrats and their agenda are dangerous for so many obvious reasons but apart from that — just consider a party that would engage in an elaborate conspiracy to front a candidate they know is not competent and who gives them some cover for their socialist agenda,” Limbaugh tweeted Sunday.
Senate Republicans will investigate
Despite utter silence from the Biden campaign, the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee has begun an investigation into the emails found on Biden’s laptop, the New York Post reported Wednesday.
“There are so many red flags about the Biden family trying to cash in on the Vice President’s position that it can be hard to keep them straight,” said committee Chairman Ron Johnson (R-WI).
Johnson continued: “Joe Biden needs to finally come clean and tell the truth to the American people about all of these issues, and he needs to do it now.”
The social media giants that moved to censor the bombshell reporting have also come under the Senate’s scrutiny, according to Fox Business.
Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO) announced Thursday that he has requested the CEOs of Facebook and Twitter to testify before the Senate Judiciary Subcommittee on Crime and Terrorism, to “consider potential campaign law violations arising from your company’s decision…to support the presidential campaign of Joe Biden.”
