In a bombshell report, the New York Post announced last week it had received the contents of a laptop that allegedly belonged to Hunter Biden, son of Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden. Among the recovered material was a collection of emails that appear to show Biden arranging a meeting between his father, then-Vice President Joe Biden, and an official at the Ukrainian energy firm he worked for, Burisma.
One America News Network’s White House correspondent Chanel Rion said Thursday that she has seen the data and claimed that the evidence gets even more disturbing.
Behind the scenes
“Just saw for myself a behind the scenes look at the #HunterBiden hard drive,” she said, going on to describe narcotics use as well as “underage obsessions” and “power deals.”
“Druggie Hunter makes Anthony Weiner’s down under selfie addiction look normal,” she continued, adding, “#BidenCrimeFamily has a lot of apologizing to do.”
Rion didn’t specify what “underage obsessions” she was referring to, but proof of the younger Biden’s drug use has already become widespread, with images circulating of him with what appears to be a crack pipe in his mouth.
The New York Post reported that the then-vice president’s son was kicked out of the U.S. Navy in February of 2014 following a positive drug test for cocaine.
“It was the honor of my life to serve in the U.S. Navy, and I deeply regret and am embarrassed that my actions led to my administrative discharge,” the paper quoted him as saying at the time.
Republicans going after tech censorship
Rion concluded her tweet by declaring that “Big Tech” owes an apology as well, likely a reference to how Twitter and Facebook took action to suppress the story from spreading on social media.
Both the Trump administration and Republican senators have expressed outrage over that decision and are threatening to take action.
Federal Communications Commission (FCC) Chairman Ajit Pai tweeted that he is looking to clarify Section 230, a provision of the Communications Decency Act that grants immunity to social media companies for what users post on the condition that they act as neutral platforms.
Meanwhile, Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO) has asked Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey and Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg to appear before the Senate Judiciary Subcommittee on Crime and Terrorism.
