Former Trump lawyer and New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani had some harsh words for former Attorney General William Barr over his handling of Hunter Biden’s laptop.
Giuliani said Barr “should be ashamed of himself” because allegedly assisted in the deliberate cover-up of the Biden’s shady overseas business dealings.
Years later, the Biden family scheme is finally unraveling as a grand jury is investigating Hunter Biden for tax fraud, money laundering, and the violation of lobbying laws.
“The FBI first had access to [the Hunter Biden laptop] for two and a half years,” Giuliani explained. “It deliberately covered it up for a year and a half — and so did phony [Bill] Barr who is making a pathetic fool of himself now.”
“He held back that hard drive for a year and a half when it would have completely cleared the President of the United States,” he continued. “There never would have been an impeachment.”
“He should be ashamed of himself, and he should give up his license to practice law.” Watch the clip:

Despite failing to act on the issue, Barr has admitted the suppression of the laptop story had an impact on the 2020 election.
Major news outlets like The Washington Post have finally weighed in to verify contents pulled off of a laptop belonging to Hunter Biden and abandoned at a Delaware computer store in 2019. This comes 18 months after The New York Post initially broke stories on Biden’s overseas business dealings, citing information from the laptop.
A left-wing cover-up scandal wrongfully buried this information about Joe and Hunter’s multimillion-dollar global influence-peddling scheme. Just months before the 2020 presidential election, censorship stemming from big tech and liberal fact-checkers incorrectly labeled the story “False.” The threads are finally beginning to unravel as Joe and Hunter’s shady business dealings are being heavily scrutinized.
The chain of custody of the data from Biden’s laptop is difficult to establish. At this point, the laptop’s hard drive contained evidence that files are missing and could have been doctored. Of the nearly 129,000 emails contained on the hard drive, Johns Hopkins University security researcher Matt Green was able to verify 1,828. Former National Security Agency operative Jake Williams was able to verify nearly 22,000.
One of the most critical emails that was verified was Joe and Hunter Biden’s communications with a Chinese energy company and a Ukrainian energy company, the latter of which paid Biden as much as $83,000 a month to sit on its board. Joe Biden received a 10% cut in the venture.
In the last two years of Joe’s vice presidency under Barack Obama, the family cashed in before the moment passed. The Biden family received millions of dollars wired by Chinese energy company CEFC. The company used the Biden name to advance the interests of Communist China in Oman, Luxembourg, Romania, the Middle East and Asia. This involvement in the family scheme is not merely a violation of the White House’s Ethics Policy, but rather a violation of serious federal laws.
Joe Biden is implicated in 11 of these business dealings as well as Joe’s brother Jim and his brother-in-law Jack. In a text message to his daughter, Hunter revealed that his father, Joe, takes half of his salary.
The problem for the Bidens isn’t simply Hunter’s laptop from hell. The bigger problem is that their former business partners are beginning to talk about their involvement in the scheme. When the FBI shows up at your door, things suddenly change. Joe and Hunter’s former business partner, Tony Bobulinski, gave the FBI a six-hour interview as well as a trove of documents, emails and encrypted messages. Bobulinski hasn’t testified yet in front of the grand jury investigating the case. If he does not testify before the grand jury, something is very wrong.
In a damning admission, Bobulinski has publicly named Joe Biden as the “Big Guy,” referenced in emails and text messages, whose 10% equity in a joint venture with Chinese energy company CEFC was held for him by Hunter.
Joe and Hunter Biden repeatedly flew on Air Force Two to meet their business partners in China. Biden also wrote a college recommendation letter and faxed it directly to the president of Brown University on behalf of the son of their Chinese business partner.
The White House’s position on this issue is unsustainable. First of all, the White House spokespeople said the president stands by his pre-election statement that Hunter never received any money from China. This is patently false. Banks flagged massive wire transfers coming from China to Hunter’s company as “potential criminal activity,” which triggered the FBI’s investigation.
Dementia-ridden Joe Biden has claimed over and over that he has no knowledge about the corrupt business dealings involving his son Hunter, his brother James, and his brother-in-law Jack. Going a step further, White House chief of staff Ron Klain has gone on TV to declare that the president remains confident his son didn’t violate the law.
While the entire Biden family is cashing in on the career and power of Joe Biden, the “big guy” himself is conveniently unaware and has never spoken to Hunter about Joe’s 10% cut.
More on this story via The Washington Post:
In particular, there are verified emails illuminating a deal Hunter Biden developed with a fast-growing Chinese energy conglomerate, CEFC China Energy, for which he was paid nearly $5 million, and other business relationships. Those business dealings are the subject of a separate Washington Post story published at the same time as this one on the forensic examinations of the drive.
The drive also includes some verified emails from Hunter Biden’s work with Burisma, the Ukrainian energy company for which he was a board member. President Donald Trump’s efforts to tie Joe Biden to the removal of a Ukrainian prosecutor investigating Burisma led to Trump’s first impeachment trial, which ended in acquittal in February 2020.
From Daily Wire:
According to John Paul Mac Isaac, the computer repair shop owner who serviced Biden’s laptop before turning it in to the FBI, Biden dropped the laptop off with Isaac in April 2019 and never came back to retrieve it. Isaac eventually treated it as abandoned property and turned it over to the FBI in July of that year after Biden’s business dealings grew in the national spotlight.
Isaac also made a copy of the drive that he attempted to turn over to Republican lawmakers, who apparently ignored his attempts. Isaac eventually turned the data over to Rudy Giuliani, who was at that time working as then-President Trump’s private attorney. Giuliani’s team gave the hard drive to the NY Post.
