Sen Kennedy: The Hunter Biden Email Scandal Is As Serious "As Four Heart Attacks And A Stroke"
The New York Post recently dropped a bombshell report after unearthing emails that show former vice president Joe Biden's son and his former employer, Ukrainian energy company Burisma discussing Biden using his position to fix political issues the company faced.
Since New York Post broke that story social media and liberal news outlets have all but banned the report from showing up online. During an interview with Fox News Senate Judiciary Committee member John Kennedy, R-La called the accusations against Hunter Biden as serious "as four heart attacks and a stroke".
If the report can be substantiated then it proves that Biden lied when he said he had no dealings with Hunter's former employer because in one email the two discuss a meeting with the then vice president Biden.
"We are talking about a major party nominee for president of the United States of America with an election right around the corner," Kennedy told host Bret Baier. "Every single solitary responsible news organization needs to be investigating the veracity of these allegations and these emails."
On Wednesday Facebook and Twitter both blocked the spread of the New York Post's report.
"The New York Post is a responsible, reputable news organization," Kennedy said. "It is subject to the libel laws and the defamation laws of our country. If social media is playing favorites and trying to pick winners and losers and discriminating against the New York Post because it doesn't like the article -- that is wrong, if that's what's going on."
The emails in question turned up in the hard drive of a laptop dropped off at a repair shop in 2019, the Post reported, adding that a copy of the hard drive ended up in the hands of Robert Costello, a lawyer for Rudy Giuliani, the president's personal attorney.
"Here's what we do know and it's important," Kennedy said.
" President Obama put Vice President Biden in charge of America's foreign affairs with two countries, Ukraine and China -- and in both cases, his son, Mr. Hunter Biden walked away with millions of dollars of contracts.
" I'm not accusing anybody of anything," Kennedy added, "but I'm telling you this: This is the message that is sent to the rest of the world. The foreign policy of the United States of America can be bought like a sack of potatoes, and that's a disservice to America and to the world."
President Trump blasted social media tech giants for trying to cover-up this story to seemingly protect the Biden campaign. Trump wrote on Twitter: "So terrible that Facebook and Twitter took down the story of “Smoking Gun” emails related to Sleepy Joe Biden and his son, Hunter, in the [New York Post]," Trump tweeted. "It is only the beginning for them. There is nothing worse than a corrupt politician. REPEAL SECTION 230!!!"
