Multiple videos and images purportedly showing Hunter Biden engaging in sexual acts with several women and using drugs were uploaded on a Chinese digital video platform Saturday evening.
The videos and images appear to be uploaded by a single user on GTV, with many of the photos seemingly from a third-party laptop. GTV, a subsidiary of GTV Media Group, was founded in April 2020 by Chinese billionaire Guo Wengui and Steve Bannon, a former senior adviser to President Trump.
“U.S. presidential candidate Joe Biden is 100% controlled by the Chinese Communist Party as one of the most successful political instances of the BGY program,” the text in one of the videos reads. “He is also a target of the CCP’s 3F plan, which aims to ‘fall, fail, and fell,’ to weaken, destroy and kill America!”
The Washington Examiner confirmed earlier this week that Bannon had access to the contents of the hard drive believed to have belonged previously to Hunter Biden.
Guo has been accused by the Chinese government of committing fraud, blackmail, and bribery and is currently a fugitive living in the United States. When Bannon himself was indicted on fraud charges in August, he was found by U.S. authorities aboard a $24 million yacht owned by Guo.
The Wall Street Journal reported in August that GTV Media Group is being investigated by the FBI and the Securities and Exchange Commission and is also being examined by the New York state attorney general’s office, according to “people familiar with the investigation.”
Earlier this month, the Justice Department charged former Republican National Committee Deputy Finance Chairman Elliott Broidy for acting as an unregistered foreign agent and alleged that he, among other things, “agreed to lobby” President Trump and the DOJ “to arrange for the removal and return of People’s Republic of China National A” (believed to be Guo Wengui) on behalf of Jho Low, a wealthy East Asian businessman who has himself been charged for his role in orchestrating and executing a multibillion-dollar embezzlement scheme. Broidy pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to engage in a foreign lobbying scheme.
The release of the video and photos, just 10 days before the presidential election, provides more evidence that both the president and his allies wish to portray the Biden family as corrupt and morally compromised.
“If this stuff is true about Russia, Ukraine, China, other countries, Iraq, if this is true, then he’s a corrupt politician. … Joe, they’re calling you a corrupt politician,” Trump said during the final presidential debate on Thursday, adding, “Take a look at the laptop from hell.”
The New York Post first reported on Oct. 14 about the existence of the purported hard drive, claiming that it contained a tranche of text messages and emails detailing Hunter Biden’s business dealings. The outlet also highlighted a video of Biden smoking crack and having sex with an unidentified woman.
John Paul Mac Isaac, the computer repair shop owner who claimed he came into possession of the younger Biden’s computer and hard drive, told the New York Post that he made a copy of the hard drive and provided it to a lawyer for former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani as well as to federal investigators.
On Friday, the Washington Examiner obtained dozens of WhatsApp messages, emails, letters, and business proposals documenting the business dealings of Hunter Biden and his associate Tony Bobulinski. A number of the files purportedly show him and his partners attempting to leverage Joe Biden’s influence to lure investors.
The former vice president has repeatedly denied any wrongdoing by him or his son and dismissed the Hunter Biden laptop story as being part of a “Russian plan” during Thursday’s presidential debate. Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe said on Monday that “Hunter Biden’s laptop is not part of some Russian disinformation campaign.” And a federal law enforcement official told the Washington Examiner on Tuesday that the FBI and the Justice Department concur with Ratcliffe that the laptop and emails in question aren’t part of a Russian misinformation effort. A senior intelligence official also said that “the IC and DOJ are in lock-step on this: there is absolutely zero evidence or intel that the laptop or the information contained therein is a Russian op.”
Andrew Bates, a Biden campaign spokesman, told the Washington Examiner on Thursday: “Joe Biden has never even considered being involved in business with his family nor in any overseas business whatsoever.
“He has never held stock in any such business arrangements nor has any family member or any other person ever held stock for him.”
