The Democrats, along with media, claim the Hunter Biden stories published by The New York Post are "Russia disinformation" and a "false narrative."
Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), the House Intelligence Committee chairman and a top Democrat claimed that the Post stories on Hunter Biden's business dealings in Ukraine and China are part of a smear campaign and comes from the Kremlin.
"We know that this whole smear on Joe Biden comes from the Kremlin," he said when asked by Blitzer if the Hunter Biden stories are "Russian Disinformation."
"That's been clear for a well over a year now that they've been pushing this false narrative about the vice president and his son," he said.
However, Schiff said he didn't get any new information from the intelligence community when asked by Blitzer to corroborate his statement.
Here is a segment of the exchange:
Blitzer: As a member of the Gang of Eight, the top leadership in the Congress, the Senate, and the House, and members of the Intelligence Committee, have you been formally briefed on what the Russians are up to right now and trying to peddle this kind of information?
Schiff: Well, I was in the intelligence committee today to see what the latest was. And frankly, we haven't gotten much from the intelligence community very recently, which concerns me. They have, at times, some of the leadership like the director [of National Intelligence John] Ratcliffe, not been very forthcoming, in terms of the intelligence on the Russian threat been promoting this false equivalence with other countries. So, you know, I wish I could tell you more.
Pozharskyi is an adviser to the board of Burisma, a Ukrainian energy company at the storm eye of the controversial Biden-Ukraine relations.
“Dear Hunter, thank you for inviting me to D.C. and giving an opportunity to meet your father and spent some time together. It’s realty an honor and pleasure,” Pozharskyi allegedly said in an email to Hunter Biden back on April 17, 2015.
Schiff's remarks came in alignment with the Democratic presidential nominee.

The Trump campaign referred The Epoch Times to an Oct. 16 statement about a Fox News report published earlier the day.

However, despite being convinced about the authenticity of the contents of the drive, Giuliani would not rule out the possibility that “the shop owner was lying” or that the laptop may have been brought in by and belonged to someone other than Hunter Biden.
There was a five-month gap between Mac Isaac taking possession of the laptop and turning it over to the FBI; and an eight-month gap between the handoff to the FBI and the first contact with Giuliani’s lawyer.
Right after the publication of the NY Post story, some media floated the idea that the release of the emails is the work of Russian misinformation.
Both reports—which The Epoch Times cannot verify independently—cited anonymous sources.
Several articles about Hunter Biden's engagement with foreign businesses came out recently as the election is less than 20 days away.
