‘Laptop from Hell,’ author, Miranda Devine joins Tucker Carlson to discuss one email on Hunter Biden’s laptop that stands out from all the others, which Hunter sent to his business partner Devon Archer on April 12, 2014.
It was coherent and relatively well-written, unlike most of his emails. It concerned the planning stages for negotiating Hunter’s infamously large monthly retainer that he would eventually receive from Burisma and it was sent just one week before Joe Biden was to visit Ukraine to meet with then-Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk.
Miranda tells Tucker, “It reads like a classified document. There’s information in there that’s not readily available.”
The email and related images can be seen page 143 of Garrett Ziegler’s Marco Polo report on Hunter Biden’s laptop. Ziegler spent months with the laptop and organizing the files in a coherent fashion, to help Republicans hit the ground running in their investigation of the Biden Crime Family.
What makes the email particularly relevant now is that it almost appears as if Hunter may have copied portions of it directly from one or more top-secret documents and pasted it into his email to Devon.
In any case, we see that Hunter was leveraging privileged and possibly classified information, in order for his company to profit off of the chaos that had been created in Ukraine by the Obama administration.
Hunter outlined a plan to have Joe Biden set himself up as the “anti-Victor Pinchuk (the pro-Russia, pro-Yanukuvych oligarch) and he told Devon that the Burisma contract “should begin now – not after the upcoming visit of my guy [Joe].”
He told Devon that “domestic policy makers” including (and especially) his father, Joe, were to be leveraged for a “[$]25k p[er]/m[onth]” deal.
To further discuss their plans and to evade surveillance, Hunter then told Archer to buy a burner phone.
20-point plan from Hunter Biden of classified information to Devon Archer on April 12, 2014 at 9:43 PM:
I have to go to Houston with Beau tmrw for MD Anderson check up. Some thoughts after doing some research. And some further thoughts on organization going forward.
1. Poroshenko appears to be the likely next President. Determining our teams relationship with him is important. He is credible with the west and by all accounts a true reformer (by Uk standards).
2. Some sort of decentralization will likely occur in the East. If it doesn’t the Russians will continue to escalate there destabilization campaign, which could lead to a full scale take over of the eastern region most critically Donetsk. The strategic value is to create a land bridge for RU to Crimea.
3. That won’t directly affect Burisma holdings but it will limit future Uk exploration and utilization of offshore opportunities in particular.
4. It will also result in further destabilization of Uk nationally and for whatever govt is in power. And the US will respond with even stronger sanctions. Those sanctions will threaten the tenuous support of the EU which does not have the political will to incur steep energy price increases.
5. Which will result in further price increases on RU gas to the UK.
6. The IMF loan guarantees will allow the Uks to weather the economic impact, but the required reforms to Uk public subsidies will weaken the new President.
7. There will be enormous pressure on Burisma to lower prices for the national good. Even if the company takes a hit in profits it would seem imprudent to raise prices in convert with RU price gouging.
8. Burisma has an opportunity here to play the hero if it ignores the artificial market value of their product and plays to the national interest.
9. Kazakstan could play a pivotal role by providing gas at rates lower than what the RUs are asking but I doubt they would want to poke the Bear.
10. The pipelines across Uk are the key to all of this. But if the Uks shut down the pipeline they also shut down 60% of their energy supply and put a strangle on EU supplies from RU which the EU will never accept (b/c they are pussies).
11. There is no immediate supplier solution to replace RU. Even if Burisma increased output from their reserves by 100% it would – 1, take at least two years and 2, Uk would still be about 35% short of their needed gas supplies.
12. Our guy needs to set himself up as the anti- Victor Pinchuk (coal and steel oligarch- pro Russian Yanukuvich supporter).
13. The best way to weather the storm btw now an elections is to throw all in with the chocolate king. Even if he looses to Tymosheko (unlikely per polls as of today) Poroshenko is a safe ally that could help protect him from the vultures of the moment. Additionally you me and Alex should reconnect with the boxer [Vitaly Klitschko] and help gain his support of our guy.
14. And it is the moment (btw now and Elections) that he needs to weather. If he is seen as unfairly profiting from the RU induced price spike things could turn against him fast.
15. The Burisma website or press releases should talk about how Burisma as the largest independent is committed to supplying Uk industry with as much power at a fair price as possible during this crisis with an emphasis on utilizing the best technologies and world class team to ensure increased production and domestic delivery post haste.
16. We can actually be of real value here. Developing relationships, bringing US expertise to the company, supplying strategic advice on politics and geopolitical risk assesment.
17. BS can actually have direct discussions at state, energy and NSC. They can devise a media plan and arrange for legal protections and mitigate US domestic negative press regarding the current leadership if need be.
18. The announcement of my guys upcoming travels should be characterized as part of our advice and thinking- but what he will say and do is out of our hands. In other words it could be a really good thing or it could end up creating too great an expectation. We need to temper expectations regarding that visit.
19. We need to ask for long term agreement and across the board participation. This is a huge step for us that could easily become very complicated. And if we are not protected financially regardless of the outcome we could find ourselves frozen out of a lot of current and future opportunities.
20. To that end they need to know in no uncertain terms that we will not and cannot intervene directly with domestic policy makers, and that we need to abide by FARA and an other US laws in the strictest sense across the board.
21. The contract should begin now- not after the upcoming visit of my guy. That should include a retainer in the range of 25k p/m w/ additional fees where appropriate for more in depth work to go to BS for our protection. Complete separate from our respective deals re board participation.
22. Buy a cell phone from a 7/11 or CVS tmw and ill do the same.
