Jonathan Turley Drops the Hammer on Psaki for ‘Spreading the False Story’ on Hunter Biden

Legal scholar Jonathan Turley has dropped the hammer on White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki for “spreading the false story” about Hunter Biden’s “Laptop from Hell.”

Psaki, along with Democrats, President Joe Biden, and their media allies, previously claimed that story about Hunter’s laptop was “Russian disinformation.”

Turley accuses Psaki of helping to spread those false claims after the New York Times confirmed this week that reports about Hunter’s laptop were genuine.

Turley wrote: “In the aftermath of the New York Times admitting that the Hunter Biden laptop was authentic all along, the Biden White House has gone into radio silence — and few reporters are pressing the president for an answer.

“White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki previously spread the false claim that the laptop was Russian disinformation (as did President Biden).

“She is now saying that it would be inappropriate for her to address her prior comments on the scandal.

“Thankfully, there has been no run to the local ice cream store but this cone of silence is occurring as reports come out of additional evidence acquired on Hunter Biden in the ongoing criminal investigation.

“Psaki was not as reticent when she was spreading the false story (in contradiction to the findings of American intelligence) that this was a hoax.

“She declared ‘I think it’s broadly known and widely known that there was a broad range of Russian disinformation back in 2020.’

“Now that her statements (and those of the president) are recognized as untrue, Psaki will not entertain questions, responding ‘I’d point you to the Department of Justice and Hunter Biden’s representatives.’

“Of course, the Justice Department will not comment on pending investigations.

“However, the question was about her own role in spreading, ironically, disinformation.

“The radio silence is deafening as new reports indicate that the grand jury continues to drill down on Hunter Biden’s finances.

“As we discussed earlier, the woman who had a child out of wedlock with Hunter Biden has given documents detailing his finances to the grand jury.

“Notably, Clint Lancaster, an attorney for Lunden Roberts, told CNBC he also offered ‘a significant amount of [Biden’s] financial records’ to investigators in response to a subpoena and that he ‘expects’ Hunter Biden to be indicted.

“With the rising possibility of an indictment, the media has to try to clean up its long promulgation of this false claim.

“It is not, however, addressing what those now authentic emails say about the influence-peddling schemes of the Biden family,” he wrote.

Psaki has been dodging questions about the mounting scandal as reporters demand answers.

New York Post reporter Steven Nelson said: “I’ve got a quick clarification and two questions about presidential conflicts of interest in foreign affairs.

“The first brief clarification is: The New York Times reported this week that the First Son remains under criminal investigation.

“Does the President still intend to stay out of that case?”

Psaki responded: “Yes.  It’s the Department of Justice, and I would point you to them.”

Nelson said: “And my two questions about conflicts of interest in foreign affairs.  First, I have a question about Russia and then one about China.

“On Russia: You told me last year that you were unfamiliar with the Senate report that alleged that the First Son — or a company linked to the First Son received $3.5 million from the richest woman in Russia.

“Subsequent reporting indicates that President Biden when he was Vice President, had dinner in Georgetown with the same woman in 2015.

“This, Yelena Baturina, she has not been sanctioned yet by the U.S. government. How is President Biden navigating conflicts of interest when it comes to sanctioning people who have done business with his family?  And can you explain to us what this $3.5 million was for?”

Psaki: “I don’t have any confirmation of the accuracy of that report, so I have no more further details.”
