It took a mere 532 days, but the Washington Post on Wednesday joined the New York Times in finally admitting that emails attained from Hunter Biden’s infamous laptop are genuine.
The Post had two security experts use cryptographic signatures to validate nearly 22,000 emails from 2009 to 2019, including many involving Hunter’s overseas business dealings.
“Thousands of emails purportedly from the laptop computer of Hunter Biden are authentic communications that can be verified through cryptographic signatures from technology companies,” tweeted WaPo’s White House reporter Matt Viser.
According to verified emails, Hunter Biden was a consultant for companies in China and Ukraine while also looking into opportunities in many other countries. His father served as vice president.
NEW: The thousands of emails purportedly sent by Hunter Biden’s laptop computer are genuine communications and can be confirmed using cryptographic signatures provided by technology companies.

Washington Post Admits Hunter Biden’s Laptop Emails Are Real
The media buried an original New York Post story in October of 2020 involving emails found on Hunter’s laptop prior to the presidential election. The outlet was censored on social media at the time – before the election – for sharing the story.

The Washington Post was part of the media blackout on the story during that timeframe, stating the emails were “unverified,” they “have never been authenticated,” and publishing a news analysis dismissing the New York Post’s reporting as “sketchy.”
You chose to not report this on before the election in order to preserve Biden.

Also part of the silencing and cover-up of the Hunter Biden story was the New York Times, which also just got around to publishing a story on the First Son’s ongoing federal investigation into his business dealings.
The Times “authenticated” emails from the laptop for their story as well.
These are two prominent newspapers of record that showed little curiosity in a major scandal for a presidential candidate and his family but now, with the safety of that candidate’s campaign no longer in doubt, doing the actual investigative work that should have been done immediately.
Matt will briefly report on it, but we won’t be able to ask the question of who the guy with 10%.
Tip for Matt. It’s Biden
U know it, we know it, Bobulinski knew it, & u covered it up to get the Big Guy in office
So again who approved the ‘new’ reporting Matt

RELATED: Here’s The Stark Difference Between How Media Treated Hunter’s Laptop And The Steele Dossier
They Might Have Verified It a While Ago. But They Did Not.
Journalist Glenn Greenwald hammered the Washington Post for just now admitting emails from Hunter Biden’s laptop are real, saying the laptop’s “authenticity was proven Start at the beginning.”
“Most of these details were reported and confirmed in several outlets *before* the 2020 election — as opposed to now when it’s safe to say it — but they were censored by Twitter and FB based on the CIA lie spread by most corporate outlets that it was ‘Russian disinformation,’” he tweeted.
Greenwald then notes that even though slow-walking reports on the authenticity and reliability of the laptop have been made, no major media outlet has pulled back stories which helped to propagate false accusations that Hunter Biden was Russian propaganda.
Amazing: The WashPost now admits, 10 days after NYT did, that the Hunter Biden laptop contents are real and they use them as part of their reporting.
Yet **not one** corrupt outlet that spread the CIA’s pre-election lie that it was “Russian disinformation” has retracted. pic.twitter.com/K6hGIp3jrN

Each outlet was willing to report on the Steele dossier or Russia collusion hoax, even though they had little evidence to back it up.
Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign and the Democratic National Committee have now been fined thousands of dollars regarding payments for the dossier.

What time will media have to be fined and report properly on the two stories which helped choose a side in the presidential election of 2020?
Hunter Biden, on the other hand, has been in serious trouble for his business dealings. Even a CNN legal analyst warned of the real possibility that he could be indicted.

“This is a very real, very substantial investigation of potentially serious federal crimes,” CNN senior legal analyst Elie Honig said. “We are seeing federal prosecutors in Delaware do exactly what you would expect to see federal prosecutors do in this situation.”
Honig added that the investigation is “gaining steam” and there “is a realistic chance this could result in federal charges.”
Is it better late than never?
