UPDATE: 4:30 PM ET: It appears as though social media companies are putting people on notice that the New York Post story is not verifiable, and the story we are reporting below isn’t claiming that the story is or isn’t true, but simply reporting on Marjorie Green’s reaction. You can decide for yourself as to the validity or credibility of any reports about Joe and Hunter Biden as it relates to the New York Post story.
In September of 2019, Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden told reporters, “I have never spoken to my son about his overseas business dealings. Here’s what I know. Trump should be investigated.”
The New York Post released a report this morning that claims emails that were reportedly recovered from Joe’s son, Hunter Biden’s Macbook that was left for repair in Delaware and never retrieved.
One of the emails that were sent to Hunter shows Vadym Pozharskyi, with who he was allegedly doing business overseas, thanking him for setting up a meeting between him and Joe, who was Vice President at the time.
So…. Joe Biden tells his voters: “I’ve never spoken to my son about his overseas business dealings”. But this morning a SMOKING GUN email is released from the NUMBER 3 executive at Burisma thanking Hunter for BRINGING HIM TO DC TO MEET HIS DAD!!! But yeah… Black Trump 👇🏾🙄-VJ pic.twitter.com/o4JtOmTmrV— RealVinnieJames (@RealVinnieJames) October 14, 2020
Republican Georgia Congressional candidate Marjorie Taylor Greene said of the news, “Sleepy Joe LIED about never speaking to “my son” (Hunter) about his “‘overseas business dealings.'”
In the tweet, she references the 2019 quote. She then wonders, “How many Fake News reporters will work to bury the ‘smoking gun’ emails in this story?”
WARNING: Twitter has slapped a warning label on the tweet below, and clicking on it will give you said warning.

How many Fake News reporters will work to bury the “smoking gun” emails in this story?https://t.co/5zhwJqGZcA
The report alleges that Hunter Biden’s lawyer refused to comment on the specifics but instead attacked Rudy Giuliani, claiming that “He has been pushing widely discredited conspiracy theories about the Biden family, openly relying on actors tied to Russian intelligence.”
Pozharskyi and the Joe Biden campaign did not return requests for comment, they added.
Previous Update: Facebook policy communications director Andy Stone tweeted about the New York Post report that we reference in this article declaring it eligible to be fact-checked.
“While I will intentionally not link to the New York Post, I want be clear that this story is eligible to be fact checked by Facebook’s third-party fact checking partners. In the meantime, we are reducing its distribution on our platform,” he said.
