Trump, with the help of outlets like Fox News, has been pushing a dishonest narrative in touting intelligence documents that his administration declassified last month on the eve of the first presidential debate. They claimed the information was a supposed smoking gun proving that Hillary Clinton and the Obama administration sought to frame Trump with a Russian collusion scandal. But when examined closely the documents indicate no such thing.

"Is this how stupid we are now?"

That's how stupid Team Trump hopes we are:

$20 says we get a news cycle like someone does forensics for Hunter, finds the phishing email that got Hunter's iCloud account, and it came from something like lol.nothing.matters@mail.ru so we can just play out 2016 in ever tighter fractals of hell forever and ever and ever

Rule of 2020:

2020 will be dumber than you think it will be

Corollary: This rule applies even if you take into account this rule and try to adjust for it.

Hmmm:

So just so I follow this story:

Hunter Biden, who lives in Los Angeles, decides to fly 3000 miles across country, to drop off 3 MacBook Pros at a repair shop run by a blind guy who charges the insanely low price of $85.

He gets off the plane and drunk drives to the repair shop

(because there aren't repair shops in LA). He drops them off, signs a contract for repair and then disappears. The repair shop owner recovers and reads Hunter's *private* emails, a few of which mention a possible meeting with his dad and is so alarmed, he contacts the FBI.

The FBI arranges to pick up the hard drives, but the computer repair shop owner takes a totally normal step of copying them. Once he realizes the FBI isn't doing anything with them, he calls up the most credible ex-Mayor on Earth and hands them the contents of these drives.

That totally credible ex-Mayor sits on them for months, then chooses to release them 3 weeks before the election. The mainstream media asks to independently verify their validity but said ex-Mayor does what all people trying to prove facts do and ignores these requests.

Is this how stupid we are now?

No one who does data recovery would read through thousands of personal emails, even if the computer is abandoned. You'd just wipe the drives clean and sell the computers used.

If these emails were as alarming as it's being pushed, Giuliani wouldn't have sat on them for months.

And if Giuliani wanted to prove their validity, he'd turn them over to forensic experts.

Steve Bannon Boasted on Dutch TV Weeks Ago That He Had Hunter Biden's Hard Drive

Former Trump strategist Steve Bannon boasted weeks ago on Dutch current affairs TV show Nieuwsuur that he had Hunter Biden's hard drive. "We have the hard drive. I have the hard drive of Hunter Biden," he said, in a clip that was not used at the time but was shared by journalist Eelco Bosch van Rosenthal on Friday after the New York Post published the purported contents of the hard drive. When the journalist asked Bannon what's on it and whether he'd release it before the presidential debate, Bannon replied, "You'll see, standby." The Post disclosed that Bannon and Rudy Giuliani gave the hard drive to the newspaper, and included an unlikely story about them obtaining it from a computer repairman who copied it.
