To record oneself arguing with a known prostitute about the exact quantity of crack cocaine one illegally possesses, or not—that is the question.
For the average person, and indeed for the majority of the human race, such a question is axiomatically answered in the negative. For the son of the President of the United States, however, that question was shockingly answered in the affirmative.
On Sunday, The Washington Examiner, reported that 4chan users claimed to have hacked into Hunter Biden’s iCloud account.
4chan users posted pictures and videos from the hacked account onto 4chan’s main political forum on Saturday evening. The leaked videos and photos show the first son engaging in raunchy, drug-fueled debauchery, often in the presence of female escorts. Many videos and images were taken down by site administrators, but some content from the leak quickly circulated to other forums and social media sites, including Twitter.
One video, in particular, took Twitter by storm and amassed over 11 million views. The video appears to show Hunter Biden arguing with a prostitute in a filthy room about the exact quantity of crack cocaine he has. The LCD screen on the digital scale shows a total mass of 20.7 grams of the drug, which Hunter Biden proudly proclaims to the prostitute.
In a tweet thread on Sunday night, Newsmax’s Benny Johnson retweeted the video with the caption “Hunter Biden arguing with a hooker about how much crack he has.”
In the thread, Johnson also tweeted a C-SPAN clip from 1991 of then-Senator Joe Biden emphatically discussing how persons caught in possession of even a “quarter-sized” amount of crack cocaine would be sentenced to at least five years in prison.
With the C-SPAN clip, Johnson added, “Just a reminder of how Joe Biden felt about crack while he was in the Senate. How many ‘quarters’ of crack does Hunter have here? Looks like a lot of jail time.” Many other Twitter users called out the sheer hypocrisy of the Biden family that was revealed as a result of the iCloud hack.
iCloud is a service provided by Apple, Inc., which allows users to backup the contents that are physically stored on their Apple devices. A copy of the contents stored on the device’s memory is made and stored on iCloud servers. According to Apple, its cloud-based storage is designed to “securely [hold] your music, photos, videos, documents, and more.” In addition, it enables users to access their information across any of their Apple devices, and it can even help users retrieve lost devices or information from lost devices.
According to the Washington Examiner, many of the materials posted by 4chan users match the contents previously found on a password-protected iPhone XS backup located on a copy of Hunter Biden's abandoned laptop.
Konstantinos Dimitrelos, a former Secret Service agent-turned-cyber forensics expert, located the password to the iPhone backup during his examination of the laptop’s hard drive According to Dimitrelos the data found within the password-protected iPhone backup is incontrovertibly authentic.
"Based on my analysis of the iPhone,” Dimitrelos told the Washington Examiner, “I conclude the same results as my analysis of the MacBook Pro Laptop hard drive and iCloud synced data. The person who owns and operates this iPhone XS is Robert Hunter Biden.
Many of the images and videos leaked depict Hunter Biden engaging in sexual relations with prostitutes. According to Daily Mail, Hunter Biden could face federal charges for transporting prostitutes across state lines.
While the photos and videos of Hunter Biden that were released are quite damning and horrifying, it is important to note that Hunter Biden’s finances have been under federal scrutiny since 2018. Indeed, just after the 2020 election, according to the Washington Examiner, Hunter Biden revealed the existence of an inquiry into his tax filings.
On Tuesday, Fox News Channel’s Tucker Carlson reminded his viewers and Twitter followers that Hunter Biden’s financial affairs are equally as egregious as his personal affairs. Carlson tweeted: “The real story isn’t that Hunter Biden was a crackhead who liked prostitutes and underage girls, though that seems to be true. The real story is that the Biden family was doing business with the Chinese government.”
It is alleged that Hunter Biden used his proximity to power (i.e., being the son of the then-vice president) to conduct business negotiations, deals, and transactions involving millions of dollars in countries such as China, Ukraine, and Russia, despite his demonstrable lack of experience.
Hunter Biden denies all allegations of financial wrongdoing, and has asserted that he is “100 percent certain” that he will be cleared of all accusations of misdeeds.
As of the time of publication, the White House has not responded to various media requests about the leaked contents of Hunter Biden’s iPhone or iCloud.
