Kash's Corner

Kash Patel and Jan Jekielek

Jan 27, 2023
“The information—and the bulleted information specifically in that email—is information, in my opinion, that could only have come from a classified source and a classified document …Where did this email come from? Hunter Biden's laptop. This document has been known to the FBI for years,” said Kash Patel. Was there classified information on Hunter Biden’s laptop? Was this the true origin of the investigation into Joe Biden's classified documents? Kash’s Corner looks at recent reporting by New York Post journalist Miranda Devine. And discusses the recent indictment of ex-FBI official Charles McGonigal, a key player in the Russiagate scandal. He was indicted for aiding sanctioned Russian oligarch Oleg Deripaska. Notably, Deripaska had previously hired Christopher Steele, the author of the infamous, discredited “Steele dossier.” Tonight, Patel connects the dots and breaks down what he sees going on. FULL TRANSCRIPT Kash Patel: Welcome back to Kash's Corner. There's so much to cover this week. I'm just going to let Jan take it. Jan Jekielek: There's a curious figure that we're familiar with from the time of the Russiagate investigation, a certain Russian oligarch named Oleg Deripaska, who's suddenly back in the news. He has been having a financial relationship with a quite important FBI official. The other thing that is on my mind is more of these classified documents coming to the fore and Miranda Devine finding a very curious email that she remembered from her deep work on the Hunter Biden laptop that looked unlike any other.

A Russian aluminum magnate, which means he is a multi, multi, multi-billionaire in American dollars. As it last stood when I checked, he was the third or fourth richest person in Russia. He's a very close confidant and ally to Vladimir Putin. We know how that circle works. You're a close ally of Putin. You're worth billions of dollars. You are basically doing Putin's bidding at a certain point around the world stage. During the Russiagate investigation, we came across Oleg Deripaska's name for a number of reasons, but the main one was that Oleg Deripaska was in communication with Christopher Steele. Not only was he in communication with Christopher Steele, in our reports and findings, we showed how he did, in fact, pay Christopher Steele for all of the Russia work that Christopher Steele was doing. Why was Oleg Deripaska, a Russian aluminum magnate, who was not, by the way, in the continental United States of America, paying this random former MI6 British intelligence guy? When we talk about pay, when a billionaire pays, it's quite a large sum of money. What was their interest? Who told him to do that? A lot of these questions we tried to answer. Unfortunately, because we could not get Oleg Deripaska to sit down for a deposition or even a phone call with our committee at the time, we couldn't ...
