Computer repairman who claimed he gave Hunter Biden data to Giuliani closes shop

Source: USA Today

Weeks before the Nov. 3 presidential election, the world’s political intrigue turned to a Wilmington computer repair shop after the New York Post revealed that its owner gave a copy of a laptop hard drive he believed belonged to Hunter Biden to a lawyer representing Rudy Giuliani.

Ten days after the election, a sign on the repair shop’s door said it had closed. A neighbor said the owner had left town.

A slew of new information has surfaced in the weeks since, including details about the laptop’s journey from the repair shop to Giuliani's office.

Yet with fears of fake news flooding the nation's consciousness and Giuliani's resistance to share the source material, it remains unclear whether the emails purportedly found on the hard drive and which formed the basis of the disputed New York Post story are authentic.

And excellent bookmark for anyone who might think, even for a minute, that democrats will ever be 1/1000th as corrupt as republicans.

This!

2. Might be to skip paying his bills. Mine did. One fine day he just closed up the shop and

disappeared. His website lingered for a bit then was gone.

Now we have no one to help us.

6. They got what they wanted. A stupid press that publicized it and even left it hanging....

"it remains unclear whether the emails purportedly found on the hard drive and which formed the basis of the disputed New York Post story are authentic."

Translation for the red hats: " The press can't even dispute it! Now they are going to bury it! TRUMP2020!.....er 2024!"

The KGB assassination manual is still in the Kremlin library, and the Russians do not tolerate failure.

8. Wow!!! That is one effed up story. Of coarse Rudy would be involved in this.

Sounds like that hard drive has been to hell and back. Guess none of these geniuses have ever heard of a chain of custody.

At this point, I wonder who hasn't handled the hard drive.

14. If he got paid enough, he might be sitting on a beach somewhere - sipping a Mai Tai.

If they stiffed him though, who knows?

18. I just wonder where he'll resurface

I'm thinking Idaho, eastern Washington or Oregon, someplace he thinks his name won't be recognized, and he's probably right.

Or maybe he got paid in advance, and is lazing on a beach in Costa Rica, who knows?

Silly me, I really expected a better October Surprise than a story that even Pox News thought was too hinky to report.

20. i don't think anything was authentic about this stupid story

it hasn't been brought up after it didn't stick. And stupid ruddie the goulihani projected his own crimes like wanting to sleep with underage girls (see the Borat movie - i don't think he was tucking in his shirt).
