Tucker Carlson Suddenly Says It's Time to Leave Hunter Biden Alone

Source: The Daily Beast

Fox News host Tucker Carlson, who has obsessively covered Hunter Biden’s emails since the story exploded in conservative media earlier this month, suddenly said on Thursday night that he didn’t want to be involved with “piling on” Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden’s son.

In recent weeks, following the New York Post reporting on unverified material purportedly obtained from a laptop belonging to Hunter Biden, Carlson has been at the forefront of Fox News’ coverage of the story while accusing the Bidens of corruption.

This includes an exclusive interview with Tony Bobulinski, a former associate of Hunter’s who claims Joe Biden is lying about having no involvement in his son’s Chinese business deals. Numerous outlets, including Fox News’ news division, have reported that a review of corporate records and documents provided by Bobulinski reveals “no role for Joe Biden.”

Carlson, meanwhile, dropped a curious story on Wednesday night apparently introducing a whole new twist in the saga. Hinting at a nefarious plot by Deep State actors, the Fox News star told viewers that “damning” Hunter Biden documents that were shipped to him had “vanished,” adding that it was deeply concerning that such a thing could happen to a “trove of materials that are directly relevant to the presidential campaign that’s six days away.” Later that evening, he told a reporter that “someone’s reading our texts,” implying that he was being spied upon.

2. So Tucker mailed himself, or had someone mail him, a packet designed to fall apart in transit...

This is my interpretation of this order of events. Change my mind, if you like.

6. So-UPS found the flash drive [containing the documents]---but I am

not clear about who has the flash drive now?? Carlson?



https://www.thedailybeast.com/tucker-carlson-suddenly-says-its-time-to-leave-hunter-biden-alone?ref=home

...................By Thursday morning, despite the missing documents being found by shipping company UPS, Carlson continued to hint at malfeasance on the part of unnamed operatives who didn’t want the Biden documents to come out.

After admitting that he had made copies of the documents before they were shipped out, Carlson continued in his conspiratorial vein on Thursday night, questioning UPS’ explanation that the contents of the package—a flash drive containing documents—had been found on Monday night after suffering a rather mundane mishap in which they came out of the package



“How did our flash drive get separated from the package that we sent it in?” Carlson wondered aloud. “That seems like something worth knowing. The envelope was securely sealed, and we know that. UPS does not dispute that. Was a package torn open accidentally by a machine? That seems unlikely and UPS says that almost never happens.”

“So we are left with the obvious explanation: someone for some reason opened our package and removed a flash drive containing documents that were damaging to the Biden family,” he added. “We would love to know who would do that and why.”

15. You are probably correct...

The question I've not seen anyone ask is... Why use snail mail for electronic files?

19. Hunter Biden is entitled to legal representation also.

The Republicans should not forget there are two parties involved in the episode, with Hunter Biden being one of them. Do the repugs actually think they can slander Hunter in every aspect of his life for political gain and not be subjected to full force legal pushback?

8. What happened to the found mail???

"UPS says it found the lost cache of documents that Tucker Carlson claimed would damage Joe Biden's campaign"
https://www.businessinsider.com/ups-said-found-lost-tucker-carlson-documents-sending-back-2020-10

UPS said it found the set of documents that Tucker Carlson said had "vanished" in transit and would be damaging to Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden and his family.

Carlson told viewers the documents had disappeared but did not name the courier transporting them. UPS then confirmed to Business Insider that it was the carrier.

UPS has since told Business Insider that it found the documents "after an extensive search."

Carlson, a vocal advocate of President Donald Trump, has previously hyped up the importance of unconfirmed revelations about Biden.

Fox News did not respond to a request for comment.

10. Remember the memo?

That George W. Bush went AWOL during his service protecting Texas from the Viet Cong had never been in dispute. But the GOP fed CBS News a memo that they knew was phony as "evidence," and when Dan Rather fell into this trap they immediately "investigated" and "uncovered" proof that it was phony. The media dutifully pretended that this obvious charade was anything but, Rather's career was finished, and the GOP could now point at the case and claim that Dubya's AWOL was fake news and that the media was out to get them, and Darth Cheney's handpuppet won re-election.

(And not just the GOP, either. I like Charles Johnson of Little Green Footballs, but his ceaseless angry-bragging that he alone deserves credit for "breaking the story" about the memo isn't the spectacular self-promotion he thinks it is.)

The constantly-morphing tale of Indiana Carlson and the Lost Drive is a similar act of political theater, choreographed to the best of the GOP's ability. Which means that there are a shitload of holes in the plot, but they hope everyone will be too RABBLE RABBLE RABBLE to notice. However the GOP that fed Rather the fake memo sixteen years ago was a bit more clever than the GOP that's trying to make Hunter Biden a big deal. Carlson's abrupt high-road facade is just a revelation that Republicans have realized they can't manufacture enough convincing bullshit about Hunter to distract enough people from the crimes of the Trump mob...for now.

12. Amazing! What took the wind out of Tucker's sails? He was going to bring Biden's son down, by jimmy.

Can't believe my eyes!

How could he have been so fired up when he knew he had nada, anyway?

What happened to Tucker?

We gotta find out!

Oh, Tucker. You're so funny.

Thank you, JoeOtterbein.

Fucker: I had damning evidence, but UPS lost it. Damning, I tell you!

UPS: Oh, here it is. Here's your damning evidence. It was right over here. We found it for you.

Fucker: Um...

Also Fucker: Leave Hunter Biden alone!

23. Opioid addiction is a big problem in Fox-watching states.

Perhaps Tucker’s viewers could sympathize with someone who overcame drug problems. Tucker would pay attention to ratings.

27. Translation...

“Mr. President, it ain’t working. No one believes it.”

“Well dammit, quit talking about Hunter Fucking Biden and come up with something that will work! Now, Goddamn it! Doesn’t this fuck have an email server in the basement? That worked before!”

“Mr. President, so far as we can tell Mr. Biden has never sent an email in his life.”

“That’s it, We’ll say he’s behind the times!”

“Uhh...Mr. President, you don’t send emails either, and neither do the kids.”

“Well...fuck. Listen, do me a favor. Go to Home Depot and buy all the empty sandbags they have. We gotta have something to put the silverware in.”
