Media comparable to “state media” for burying Hunter story before election: Jonathan Turley


NEWYou can now listen to Fox News articles!

Fox News contributor Jonathan Turley reacted to the Hunter Biden investigation revelations on Wednesday, saying it was like “eBay influence peddling” in “Special Report.”

JONATHAN TURLEY: You couldn’t create a stronger case for a special advocate. It’s impossible to look at those emails, look at those accounts, and not constantly review references to the president. There are even emails, one email says, “Don’t use his name”, and instead they call him “Celtic” or “the big guy” where they use an initial. But it is mentioned in connection with an office that he could use an account that could have mixed some of these funds that could have paid off some of his debts – even a percentage of one of these transactions. So it’s just another world for the president to suggest he has nothing to do with it. It was not a particularly sophisticated operation. As you know, influence peddling in Washington is a true cottage industry. It was as raw as it gets. It’s a bit like influence peddling on eBay. I mean, they were really very open about selling access.

And that’s what’s so striking about it. Many of us have been watching this for almost two years, and there has been a really concerted effort to bury this story. And it was embarrassing for the American media. It made them look like a state outlet where they buried the story ahead of the election, despite the Bidens having a long history of influence peddling allegations. You didn’t have to research Russian disinformation claims. The Biden family has been accused of this stuff before. And so now they’re looking at the potential for an indictment. And I think they’re trying to get a head start in case that happens, because if he’s indicted, that laptop will be part of the evidence.
