House Speaker Nancy Pelosi cut off a female reporter and pointedly refused to answer a question about new revelations of alleged corruption involving Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden and his son Hunter Biden.
The masked speaker was discussing the state of negotiations with the White House and Senate Republicans regarding a new COVID-19 relief bill when she was asked about the allegations.
“Excuse me…I’m sorry, I’m not answering your questions, okay? We’re talking about the coronavirus,” Pelosi snapped, holding her hand up. “That’s what I…I don’t have all day for questions. That’s what we’re taking now.”
Moving on, Pelosi asked, “Anybody have a question on the coronavirus negotiations?”
The reporter’s shunned question comes amid new revelations over the past day regarding initial allegations contained in stories first published by the New York Post, which cited materials and emails taken from a MacBook Pro laptop Hunter Biden took to a computer repair shop in Delaware and then abandoned.
On Wednesday, Fox News reported that an FBI subpoena for Hunter Biden’s laptop, which was obtained last December, was related to a money-laundering probe, according to documents the outlet obtained.
“Multiple federal law enforcement officials, as well as two separate government officials, confirmed the authenticity of these documents, which were signed by FBI Special Agent Joshua Wilson,” the report said.
“The FBI cannot open a case without predication, so they believed there was predication for criminal activity,” an unnamed federal official told Fox News. “This means there was sufficient evidence to believe that there was criminal conduct.”
Meanwhile, a Biden family insider, Tony Bobulinski, released a statement corroborating portions of the New York Post’s original story — that Joe Biden not only knew of his son’s foreign business dealings but was intimately involved in helping him secure them.
The Post said the emails are part of “a massive trove of data recovered from a laptop computer.”
“Other material extracted from the computer includes a raunchy, 12-minute video that appears to show Hunter, who’s admitted struggling with addiction problems, smoking crack while engaged in a sex act with an unidentified woman, as well as numerous other sexually explicit images,” the Post reported.
In a statement, Bobulinski said he witnessed Joe and Hunter Biden discussing the foreign business dealings, some of which involved transfers of money that were flagged as potentially illegal by U.S. banks and the Treasury Department.
“I was brought into the company to be the CEO by James Gilliar and Hunter Biden,” he added, noting further that a “reference to ‘the Big Guy’ in the much-publicized May 13, 2017 email is in fact a reference to Joe Biden. The other ‘BB’ referenced in that email is Jim Biden, Joe’s Brother.”
Bobulinski, a former naval officer, also claimed that that Hunter Biden referred to his father as “the Big Guy” or “my Chairman.”
“I’ve seen Vice President Biden saying he never talked to Hunter about his business. I’ve seen firsthand that that’s not true, because it wasn’t just Hunter’s business, they said they were putting the Biden family name and its legacy on the line,” he said.
The insider further noted that a recent report from the Homeland Security and Finance committees, headed by Sens. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) and Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) respectively, “connected some dots in a way that shocked me.”
He said that report “made me realize the Bidens had gone behind my back and gotten paid millions of dollars by the Chinese, even though they told me they hadn’t and wouldn’t do that to their partners.”
