(RepublicanInformer.com)- Last week, CNN host Jake Tapper reported that the DOJ’s investigation into Hunter Biden’s shady overseas business deals was “heating up.” Tapper reported that CNN had learned about a “flurry” of witnesses who had given testimony in the case.
Hunter Biden is reportedly being investigated over money laundering and potential violations of tax and foreign lobbying laws.
This is quite a shift for the low-rated cable news network that, during the lead-up to the 2020 election, did its level best to downplay or dismiss the New York Post’s exclusive reporting on the contents of Hunter Biden’s abandoned laptop.
Fox News reported last week that when Trump’s former attorney Rudy Giuliani was trying to get the media to report on Hunter’s laptop, CNN had no interest in it.
According to recordings released by Project Veritas in December 2020, CNN’s top brass was working to spike the Hunter Biden laptop story before the November election.
In a conference call recorded by a Project Veritas whistleblower in October 2020, CNN political director David Chalain admitted that the network would not cover the New York Post’s reporting on Hunter Biden’s laptop.
Former CNN president Jeff Zucker told his staff in a mid-October 2020 recording that the stories reported in the “Trump media” are “found to be completely nonsensical.” Zucker said that CNN shouldn’t be “repeating unsubstantiated smears just because the right-wing media” suggests it.
Even Jake Tapper dismissed the New York Post story, calling it “too disgusting” to air during the 2020 election.
Brian Stelter told the CNN audience at the time that the story was “manufactured,” adding that “for all we know, these emails were made up.”
Even after both the New York Times and the Washington Post confirmed the authenticity of Hunter’s laptop, some CNN personalities are claiming the contents of the laptop have nothing to do with Joe Biden, including White House correspondent John Harwood who last week falsely claimed that the laptop contains no evidence that President Biden was involved in his son’s dirty deals.
