Hunter Biden

In an interview clip released Friday by CBS, Hunter Biden claimed that he does not know if the laptop that was involved in the 2019 FBI probe belongs to him, but it “certainly” could have.

“Was that your laptop?” “CBS Sunday Morning” host Tracy Smith asked Hunter Biden.

“For real, I don’t know,” Biden responded adamantly. “I really don’t know, that’s the truthful answer. I don’t have any idea. I have no idea whether or not…”

“So it could have been yours?” Smith questioned Biden.

“Of course, certainly. There could be a laptop out there that was stolen from me. It could be that I was hacked. It could be that it was Russian intelligence. It could be that it was stolen from me,” Biden said.

In a separate interview clip with CBS, Biden talked about his struggle with addiction and revealed that his father, President Joe Biden, once chased him down the family’s driveway as he attempted to escape an intervention.

“He chased you?” “CBS This Morning” host Anthony Mason asked Biden.

“Yeah, because I tried to get into ­— I tried to go to my car,” Hunter responded. “And my girls literally blocked the door to my car. Said, ‘Dad, Dad, please. You can’t. No, no.’ This was the hardest part of the book to write.”

“He grabbed me. He gave me a bear hug. And he said – he just cried. He said, ‘I don’t know what to do,'” Biden said.

Biden told Mason that all he could think about was how he was going to get away from his father so he could take a hit.

“I need to figure out a way to tell him that I’m going to do something, so that I can go and take another hit,” Biden recalled. “That’s the only thing I could think.”

“I don’t know a force more powerful than my family’s love — except addiction,” Biden said.

The full interviews will air Sunday and Monday. The interviews will also include information regarding the Department of Justice probe into Hunter Biden and more, according to CBS.

Trump has chosen his 2024 running mate but hasn’t told them yet

During a campaign stop on Saturday, former president Donald Trump announced he has chosen his running mate for Vice President; but they are unaware they have been picked by the presumptive Republican presidential nominee.

They will know soon, as the vice-presidential choice will be attending the debate between Trump and President Joe Biden set to take place next week, Trump said.

The first presidential debate between Trump and Biden will air on CNN in primetime for 90 minutes. Trump will be hoping Joe Biden’s age and apparent mental decline will be on display for a national audience.

National Review writes of the VP rumors thus far for the Republican ticket:

North Dakota governor Doug Burgum, Florida senator Marco Rubio, South Carolina senator Tim Scott, and Ohio senator J. D. Vance are names that have come up repeatedly in news reports detailing Trump’s vice-presidential selection process.

Burgum emerged as a vice-presidential option after running a long-shot GOP presidential campaign and becoming a surrogate for Trump upon dropping outof the 2024 primary.

“He’s very well regarded within the Trump circle,” a senior official in Trump’s orbit previously told NR regarding Burgum’s VP chances. He was one of many contenders slated to attend the Republican National Committee’s annual donor retreat in May.

National Review adds Rubio’s prospects of being Trump’s running mate are complicated by the Twelfth Amendment’s language preventing a presidential and vice-presidential candidate from having the same state of residence. Trump changed his official residency to Florida during his presidential term.

South Dakota governor Kristi Noem, Florida representative Byron Donalds, and New York representative Elise Stefanik are other Republicans who have been floated as potential VP selections.

Noem’s vice-presidential chances diminished significantly because of a story she told in her new memoir about killing her dog two decades ago, drawing outrage and bewilderment from across the political spectrum.

Stefanik and Donalds are two of Trump’s most prominent supporters among House Republicans.
