President Donald Trump’s personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani told Newsmax on Tuesday night that he turned over texts and pictures from a laptop believed to belong to Hunter Biden to Delaware police because they contained evidence of alleged inappropriate contact by Biden with young girls.
According to the Washington Examiner, Giuliani claimed the laptop contained numerous images of young girls, and that the texts say that Hunter Biden called a girl on FaceTime while he was naked. No exact date was given for the texts, but Giuliani suggested they were sent around three years ago.
“There’s a text message to [Hunter’s] father in which he says the following, and he’s discussing his sister-in-law, who, for quite some time, was his lover,” Giuliani alleged in his interview with Newsmax, according to the Examiner. “He says, ‘She told my therapist that I was sexually inappropriate.’ This would be with an unnamed, 14-year-old girl.”
Hunter Biden was involved in a romantic relationship with his once-sister-in-law Hallie Biden after his brother died of cancer, the Examiner reported; the relationship reportedly ended in the spring of 2019.
Giuliani calls in the feds
Delaware Attorney General Kathy Jennings has confirmed that the materials were turned over to New Castle County Police Department, which turned them over to the attorney general’s office, the Examiner reported. Jennings said that her office turned them over to the FBI, which is already investigating the matter.
Giuliani, for his part, said he acted out of concern over potential child endangerment and sexual exploitation, according to Just The News. There are also rules and regulations about reporting images and material relating to sexual activity involving children.
However, Delaware computer store owner John Paul Mac Isaac said he didn’t see any child pornography on the hard drive he copied and gave to Giuliani, the Washington Examiner noted.
Notably, Joshua Wilson, the FBI agent who subpoenaed the laptop last year, had a five-year history of investigating child pornography, the Washington Examiner reported. The FBI would not comment on the investigation because its policy is not to do so.
Laptop story censored
The New York Post first reported on the discovery of Hunter Biden’s laptop last week, but the stories were quickly censored by Twitter and Facebook, as reported by Fox News.
The social media sites tried to claim that the story violated their policies because the materials came from a hacking attempt, but no hacking was involved. Isaac copied the hard drive after the computers were not retrieved and passed into his possession, then gave a copy to Giuliani, who shared it with the Post.
In addition to the alleged sexually inappropriate material, the drive also allegedly contained emails that showed former Vice President Joe Biden met with some of Hunter Biden’s foreign business associates and got payoffs from some of them through Hunter.
House Judiciary Committee member Jim Jordan (R-OH) said Tuesday that his staff has independently authenticated the emails on the laptop, according to Breitbart. But only time will tell if it’s enough to prompt federal investigators to take a closer look.
