Us media is reporting that the FBI is investigating whether or not emails found on a laptop allegedly describing activities of Joe Biden and his son are part of a foreign intelligence operation. According to an NBC News report, the emails were published by the New York Post after being provided by President Donald Trump’s attorney, Rudy Giuliani:
October 16, 2020 WASHINGTON — Federal investigators are examining whether emails allegedly describing activities by Joe Biden and his son Hunter and found on a laptop at a Delaware repair shop are linked to a foreign intelligence operation, two people familiar with the matter told NBC News. The FBI seized the laptop and a hard drive through a grand jury subpoena. The subpoena was later published by the New York Post. The bureau has declined to comment. The Post has published a series of stories based on emails the conservative tabloid said it obtained from President Donald Trump’s attorney, Rudy Giuliani. The first story highlighted what it called a “smoking gun email” that suggested a meeting between Biden and a representative of a Ukrainian company that once paid Hunter Biden. The Biden campaign says there is no evidence the meeting happened, and the story was greeted with widespread skepticism. George Mesires, attorney for Hunter Biden, said in a statement, “We have no idea where this came from, and certainly cannot credit anything that Rudy Giuliani provided to the New York Post, but what I do know for certain is that this purported meeting never happened.”

The Global Influence Operations Report (GIOR) reported yesterday that US intelligence agencies warned the White House late last year that Russian intelligence officers were using President Trump’s personal lawyer Rudolph W. Giuliani as a means to transmit disinformation aimed at undermining the President campaign of Democratic candidate Joe Biden.
