In a statement to The New York Times on Sunday, Rudy Giulani explained that he offered hard mail with emails from Hunter Biden, the son of Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden, because “either no one would have accepted him, or if he would have done it, he would have postponed it as much as he could in order to contradict what is on him before the publication ”.

New York Post reporters told The Times on condition of anonymity that they had serious doubts about the source of information from a laptop left in 2019 at a Delaware repair shop and not recovered by its alleged owner, Hunter Biden.

The tabloid received the Giuliani hard drive on October 11 and published the article entitled “Biden’s Secret Mail” on October 15, including an email received by Hunter Biden from a consultant of the Ukrainian energy company Burisma, Vadym Pozharskyi, in which he thanked her for the opportunity to meet Joe Biden in Washington. Joe Biden’s campaign team denies that this meeting ever took place.

The April 17, 2015 email read: “Dear Hunter, thank you for the invitation to (Washington) DC and the opportunity to meet your father and spend time together. It is a real pleasure and honor. “

Hunter Biden served on Burisma’s board of directors between 2014 and 2019.

In an interview with the Daily Beast last weekend, Rudy Giuliani said he was concerned that concerns about a Russian disinformation campaign were “stupid.” He said there was a 50/50 probability that one of his associates in the investigation, Ukrainian government official Andrii Derkach, would be a Russian agent.

“The chances of Derkach being a Russian spy do not exceed a 50/50 probability,” says Giuliani, explaining that the US sanctioning of the official as an “active Russian agent” is the consequence of “intelligence maneuvers in an attempt to create trouble for Trump.” Derkach could have buried Obama. “
