White House Chief of Staff Ron Klain appeared on “This Week with George Stephanopoulos.” Stephanopoulos asked about Hunter Biden’s laptop and if the White House had been in contact with the Justice Department about the matter.
Klain responded by saying that of course President Biden has had no contact with the DOJ on the matter (what else is he going to say?) and that the President is confident Hunter broke no laws.
Stephanopoulos did not press him on the matter and Klain closed the discussion on the laptop by saying: “But, again, I want to just be really clear, these are actions by Hunter and his brother. They’re private matters. They don’t involve the president.”
The fact that the New York Times and other news outlets are addressing the laptop issue means that everyone knows something is coming down the pike. The administration is, presumably, trying to get in front of the story.
The whole affair has seriously undermined the public’s trust in its institutions. The media and government officials have all gone out of their way to squash this story. But now, they are no longer able to deny this scandal. So, they’re now reporting on it. But America knows what happened here. And it’s an eye-opener for many Americans.
