“Metadata on the PDF files suggest they were created on a Mac laptop on Sep. 29 and Oct. 10...The timing of the creation of those PDF files—several months after Biden allegedly dropped off his laptop at the PC repair store in April 2019—raises questions.” https://thedailybeast.com/trump-knew-for-weeks-that-rudy-giulianis-hit-on-hunter-biden-was-coming

4. Perhaps the Delaware AG will file charges.

There certainly must be some investigating. If random folks on Twitter can pull this GOP-led conspiracy apart in minutes, just imagine what the professionals will unearth. Giuliani may want to go back to Russia, quick.

One weird thing about those two Hunter Biden emails the @NYPost published.

Instead of going straight to the cloned hard drive they've had since Sunday, the paper published PDFs of the emails prepared (per metadata) by a third-party, Giuliani or someone else, over a year ago.

10. Laptop supposedly dropped off in April 2019 - prime time for Trump's Ukraine scheme

Rudy, Peter Schweizer, Dan Bongino, and John Solomon were all doing their dirty work --including concocting the Burisma nonsens--in March-April 2019. Trump goes on Hannity to flog the Ukraine scandal April 25, 2019.

April "drop-off" date is going to be important here for some disinformation reason related to the creation of this fake scandal in March and April of 2019.

Notice also that one of these PDFs is generated September 24, 2019, just four days after Pelosi announces the impeachment inquiry.

6. Seems it should be some sort of crime to pass fake "evidence'

to the FBI.

7. Plus, from the timing....

this apparently is part of the conspiracy they were trying to blackmail Ukrainian President Zelensky to be a part of.

9. Impeachment inquiry was announced September 24, 2019

First PDF generated according to metadata September 28, 2019.

We're through the idiot looking glass with these fools.

11. If only we could cast Burt Reynolds as one of these blooper villains; he'd play it perfectly.

12. That's almost as good as Manafort emailing Gates to convert a pdf to Word and back again.

Feels like that happened about 100 years ago.

In 2016, Manafort allegedly wanted to create a fake profit-and-loss statement for his company, Davis Manafort Partners, in order to inflate his income and qualify for a loan.

"Manafort emailed Gates a .pdf version of the real 2016 DMI P&L, which showed a loss of more than $600,000," the indictment claims. "Gates converted that .pdf into a Word document so that it could be edited, which Gates sent back to Manafort. Manafort altered the Word document by adding more than $3.5 million in income."

Then, according to the indictment, Manafort "sent this falsified P&L to Gates and asked that the Word document be converted back to a .pdf, which Gates did and returned to Manafort."

By sending these documents back and forth by email, Manafort and Gates made it easy for prosecutors to pinpoint exactly who changed the documents and when.
