Live from Music Row Wednesday morning on The Tennessee Star Report with Michael Patrick Leahy – broadcast on Nashville’s Talk Radio 98.3 and 1510 WLAC weekdays from 5:00 a.m. to 8:00 a.m. – host Leahy welcomed Tennessee Star National Correspondent Neil McCabe to the newsmakers line to weigh in on the Hunter Biden laptop saga and how everyone from the CIA to the mainstream media continues to turn a blind eye.
Leahy: We are joined on our newsmaker line right now by the best Washington correspondent in the country and the Washington Correspondent for the Star News Network and The Tennessee Star, Neil McCabe.
You’ve giving breaking news about Hunter Biden in that presentation in your story that the former producer of Stephen K. Bannon’s War Room made last night to the Manhattan Young Republicans Club. Tell us more about that. You broke that story at The Tennessee Star.
McCabe: I think what’s interesting about the Hunter Biden laptop or hard drive is that number one, almost immediately after The New York Post came out with that first story, the mainstream media and leading national security people like John Brennan and Clapper and Michael Hayden, former director of the CIA, former National security advisors.
All of these people signed a giant letter saying that this is Russian propaganda and that is fake. And if you Google the Hunter Biden laptop today, the Google search will tell you that this is a fake thing and that it was invented by Russian propaganda and that’s it.
And this is less than two weeks before the election. You have this amazing archive of Joe Biden mixing of his private family benefit and his public service. And I defy you to show me another archive that you can look at to see how a politician and his family are mixing sort of this service and business in real-time.
Carmichael: Where’s this archive, Neil?
McCabe: It’s the laptop. Well, I mean, I can get you a copy of the hard drive, if you like one, but it’s around. Vish Burra who is the producer for Steve Bannon’s War Room and Jack Maxey who was his co-host, hey did the dive into it where a lot of people sort of brushed it off and dismissed it.
And frankly, there’s a lot of people who just don’t have the time to dig into this thing. And it’s the Chinese, it’s the Middle East, it’s Mexico, and it’s Ukraine. And then, of course, there is Hunter’s own sort of subplot of Hunter’s personal life, which is a train wreck of drugs, alcohol, engagements, and entanglements with law enforcement, where he’s having an affair with his brother’s widow.
He’s having an affair with his brother’s widow’s sister. There’s sort of crazy sort of hint that there may have been something going on with his own niece. And there it is. You would think someone would be interested in it.
And that’s what Vish Burra presented to the New York Young Republicans last night. And that’s what you’re going to see more and more of. I absolutely am convinced.
Leahy: So Vish Burra had the hard drive that was dropped off in the Delaware computer store. He has a copy of it of that hard drive. And he did a presentation called Hunter Biden: A Full Frontal Expose last night at the New York Young Republicans Club in Manhattan.
It suggests that there was well, I don’t know, said other than semi-quasi pornographic elements to this. Is that true?
McCabe: There are some salacious details, but part of this whole story is you have a bagman for the Biden family operations who is a spiral of debauchery, and these emails and texts there on the hard drive.
He keeps reaching out to his dad, and his dad is kind of aloof. His dad basically just wants to keep him going to operate as the bagman, and then he’s involved with all of these women. There’s a sadness to it all for Hunter personally.
The real tragedy is that that these guys’ decisions are made by our government based on this family’s need to have a dysfunctional father-son relationship and the need of the Biden family to make bank off of dad’s influence.
Carmichael: Somebody will make that into a movie.
McCabe: A reporter from The New York Post has a book deal. Vish has said he’s going to be making this presentation around the country. He’s sort of putting together his own sort of tour. I don’t know how you keep it in the bag.
Carmichael: He’ll need to make sure he has a good security detail.
Leahy: I can tell you how you can keep it in the bag. Give it to the FBI and no one will ever see it again. (Laughter)
McCabe: The FBI had it. And then, of course, the FBI has done nothing. The Delaware State Police were given it because there may have been some problems with an underage child and that’s never seen the light of day.
And yet when Hunter puts out his book he gets the full treatment. I think he was on Ellen. I know was on Jimmy Kimmel. I know he was on the Today Show. He basically got the full mainstream media book tour treatment for a book that probably if it sold 20,000 copies total I’d be shocked.
Leahy: I guess the key element here of this is the utter corruption, if you will, of the mainstream media and reporting on this.
McCabe: It’s unbelievable that there is zero curiosity about any of this. A lot of people play up sort of the stuff that obviously there are prostitutes and there are other people where he makes Hunter makes videos, and the women, they seem to know that they’re being videoed.
But maybe they didn’t expect that Hunter would have an account with Porn Hub where he was loading up some of this stuff.
But even that stuff, which is kind of, like the worst part of our media, has been kind of ignored. But you look at how he’s working on behalf of this Chinese energy company, and he’s going to Mexico trying to purchase oil fields there.
He’s going to Romania to try to secure oil fields in Romania. He’s basically the frontman for the Chinese. So maybe people would be hesitant to do business with some Chicom guy. But, no, this is Hunter Biden of Joe Biden.
Well, okay, I’ll take that meeting. I’ll speak to Vice President Biden’s son. And now we know, as you were saying yesterday in Alex Marlow’s book, Hunter Biden was taking flights out of Andrews Air Force Base.
We know that when he was flying to do business in Mexico, he was flying with his dad on Air Force Two. We know he flew on Air Force Two to China and in Peter Sweitzer’s book. First, they go to Japan, and the Japanese sit down with Biden and they say, listen, we need you to play hardball with the Chinese because they’re seizing territory.
They’re claiming territory that’s supposed to either be a neutral territory or belonged to us. And they’re threatening to shoot down our airliners if our airliners do these air routes. You have to really get tough on the Chinese. Joe’s like, don’t worry about it. I got it. He and Hunter fly down to China, and they give up the shoe.
Leahy: They give the whole thing up.
