In a not-so-shocking turn of events, the left-wing outlet NBC News has sided with the Russians over the American people.
As the Hunter Biden laptop saga becomes harder and harder for the leftist media to ignore, news outlets are attempting to find any information possible to use to discredit the story, and the people pushing it. NBC News has decided that Russian President Vladimir Putin is the perfect source.

NBC reported: “Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Sunday that he saw nothing criminal in Hunter Biden’s past business ties with Ukraine or Russia, marking out his disagreement with one of Donald Trump’s attack lines in the U.S. presidential election.”
The outlet then goes on to discuss Trump’s “accusations that Biden and his son Hunter engaged in unethical practices in Ukraine,” saying that “no evidence has been verified to support the allegations, and Joe Biden has called them false and discredited.”
Blatant Lies: “No Evidence Has Been Verified?”
To anyone who has actually seen the evidence brought forth by the laptop, and the subsequent witness that corroborated the information, NBC News is blatantly lying. Tony Bobulinski, a former business partner of Hunter Biden who was featured in multiple emails on the laptop, has provided documents and cell phones to the FBI and Senate Committees to verify the allegations against Hunter and Joe Biden.
According to a statement given to the Daily Caller by a spokesperson for Senator Ron Johnson, Chairman of the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, “all the material provided by Bobulinski that has been reviewed so far has turned out to be legitimate.”
Propping up Putin
The left has long said that Trump is colluding with Putin, despite having no evidence to support their claims. NBC mentions in its article that Putin “has praised Trump in the past for saying he wanted better ties with Moscow.”
The outlet then goes on to say that “Putin appeared less friendly towards Trump in remarks broadcast by Russian state TV on Sunday. In what may be seen by some analysts as an attempt to try to curry favor with the Biden camp, he took the time to knock down what he made clear he regarded as false allegations from Trump about the Bidens.”
“Yes, in Ukraine he [Hunter Biden] had or maybe still has a business, I don’t know. It doesn’t concern us. It concerns the Americans and the Ukrainians,” said Putin.
“But well yes he had at least one company, which he practically headed up, and judging from everything he made good money. I don’t see anything criminal about this, at least we don’t know anything about this [being criminal],” Putin continued.
It’s amazing that the left can spend four years saying that Vladimir Putin is basically the devil, and that any friendliness between Trump and the Russians amounts to treason, yet when Putin agrees with them they prop him up.
NBC also stated: “Putin also reacted with visible irritation when asked about comments Trump has made concerning… an alleged payment made to Hunter Biden by the ex-mayor’s widow. Putin said he knew nothing about the existence of any commercial relationship between Hunter and the woman. Joe Biden says the accusation about his son is not true.”
This statement is in reference to recent findings by an investigation led by Senator Johnson, who published a report which stated: “Hunter Biden received a $3.5 million wire transfer from Elena Baturina, the wife of the former mayor of Moscow.”
Clearly the left is grasping at straws at the moment, trying to find any way to convince its dwindling viewership not to believe their eyes and ears. They must be truly desperate to be relying on information from Vladimir Putin.
