The Disappeared Hunter Of Tucker Carlson Biden Documents Documents Affirms Unbelief

Published

Tucker Carlson‘s tale of documents regarding Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden and his family being lost in the mail is under scrutiny with questions over why copies would not have been made prior to them being posted.

The Fox News host, speaking on his show Tucker Carlson Tonight, described his team having been in receipt of confidential documents which he branded “real, authentic and damning” about the Biden family.

His comments come amid allegations made against Hunter Biden in regards to business dealings in Ukraine and China, which have also seen accusations made against his father.

Carlson suggested the confidential documents were received in New York to be sent to Los Angeles, where he was preparing for an interview with Tony Bobulinski, Hunter Biden’s former business partner.

However, he said these never arrived and the package was opened and emptied mid-transit. A “large national carrier” had been tasked with delivering the documents, he said. An investigation has been launched, though how the apparent incident unfolded remains unclear.

A banner reading “damning Hunter Biden documents suddenly vanish” went across the screen as Carlson spoke.

After making his claims, Carlson has faced scrutiny over their veracity and had the question raised as to why the original documents would be those posted.

Ted Lieu (D-CA) joked that he had stolen the papers, while questioning the lack of copies being made.

“I stole Tucker Carlson’s trove of documents,” he tweeted. “Awww, just kidding. Of course a major news network wouldn’t have scanned those documents first right? Or make a copy? Nope. They sent their only copy through the mail. If you believe that, then I have a bridge to sell you.”

Congressman Denver Riggleman, who represents Virginia’s 5th congressional district, suggested the source could potentially resend the documents, if they had the original copies.

“Easy fix. Send a courier to get a fresh set of copies from the ‘source’. Source should have original docs,” he tweeted. “Never send original docs via post, UPS or FedEx. That wouldn’t make much sense.”

Tom Nichols, a professor at the U.S. Naval War School and a senior adviser to anti-Trump group The Lincoln Project, also questioned Carlson’s comments and motives for making them.

“If you think about it, this is a brilliant strategy,” Nichols tweeted. “Now the fever swamp viewers of Carlson’s nightly 60 minutes of hate can just imagine what those documents are and how bad they are, instead of Tucker risking getting sued or caught with fakes.”

Newsweek has contacted Fox News and the Biden campaign for comment.
