The revelation that is being criminally investigated for his business activities in came on Monday from the investigative target himself, and he predictably and self-servingly depicted it as just a narrow probe about his “tax affairs” by the U.S. Attorney for Delaware. As I wrote last night, that by itself would be significant enough — the documents published in the weeks before the election by The New York Post contained ample information about exactly that matter, yet were widely repressed by a union of mainstream outlets, the intelligence community and based on and lies. But new reporting suggest the investigation has been far broader.

The federal investigation into President-elect ’s son Hunter has been more extensive than a statement from indicates,” Politico reported Monday night. Specifically, “the securities fraud unit in the Southern District of New York also scrutinized ’s finances”; “investigators in Delaware and Washington were also probing potential money laundering and ’s foreign ties”; and “federal authorities in the Western District of Pennsylvania are conducting a criminal investigation of a hospital business in which ’s brother James was involved.” CNN’s Shimon Prokupecz added that “at least one of the matters investigators have examined is a 2017 gift of a 2.8-carat diamond that received from CEFC [ Energy’]’s founder and former chairman Ye Jianming after a Miami business meeting.”

All of these topics are what the large bulk of the U.S. media, working in concert with the intelligence community and , suppressed prior to the election. One of the first  New York Post  articles based on materials from Hunter’s laptop, headlined “Emails reveal how tried to cash in big on behalf of family with Chinese firm,” described how he “pursued lucrative deals involving ’s largest private energy company — including one that he said would be ‘interesting for me and my family,’” and specifically noted that Hunter “was identified as ‘Chair/Vice Chair depending on agreement with CEFC,’ an apparent reference to the former Shanghai-based conglomerate CEFC Energy Co.”

That was the same email that referenced ten percent to be “held by H for the big guy” — which one of Hunter’s business partners on the email chain, Tony Bobulinski, stated categorically referred to . The Wall Street Journal columnist Kimberly Strassel similarly reviewed numerous laptop documents and reported that “records produced by Mr. Bobulinski show that in 2017, and James Biden were involved in negotiations about a joint venture with a Chinese energy and finance company called CEFC Energy,” adding that the documents also “make clear that saw the family name as a valuable asset, angrily citing his ‘family’s brand’ as a reason he is valuable to the proposed venture.

In sum, we have the extraordinary historic disgrace of media outlets collaborating with the intelligence community in the weeks before a presidential election to manufacture and peddle a propagandistic lie to justify of highly relevant materials about the presidential front-runner and his family’s efforts to profit off his name — namely, that the documents were not authentic but rather “Russian disinformation.”

It is vital to recall which media outlets did this and how they deceived the public yet again:
