WASHINGTON (SBG) — America This Week" host Eric Bolling sat down with former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon, who was personally involved in getting the Hunter Biden story to the New York Post. White House communications director Alyssa Fara gave the president's perspective on the report.
BANNON: NY POST REPORT SUGGESTS BIDEN'S A 'NATIONAL SECURITY' RISK
Steve Bannon was reportedly the individual who ensured the New York Post got access to a hard drive full of material implicating former Vice President Joe Biden in his son Hunter Biden's foreign business dealings.
"Joe Biden has lied to the American people," Bannon charged. The former vice president consistently denied having any knowledge or involvement in his son's business with a Ukrainian energy company and the campaign denied Biden ever met with his son's Ukrainian business partner, as alleged in the report. The accuracy of the reporting is currently under investigation.
Bannon further claimed that Biden's alleged involvement was a "national security problem." He argued, "Biden and his family are compromised."
The materials used in the Post's report were taken from a laptop abandoned at a Delaware computer repair shop. Bannon worked in a Trump war room for former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani who was reportedly sent the materials by a computer repair shop owner.
According to Bannon, the shop owner turned the materials over to the FBI in the fall of 2019. He faulted the FBI for not coming forward with the information. "I think this requires an immediate investigation of the FBI," Bannon argued. "The FBI literally looks like it's protecting Biden and his family."
With less than three weeks until the election, Bannon promised that more information would come out. He cited a "massive library" of photographs, videos, audio, texts and emails, including some with explicit content, such as drug use and "sexual depravities."
FARA: MAINSTREAM MEDIA 'GLOSSING OVER' HUNTER BIDEN REPORT
Commenting on the New York Post report, Alyssa Farah said the revelations about Joe and Hunter Biden were "extremely concerning."
Farah said that President Trump's alleged collusion with the Russian government was covered extensively by the media, arguing that networks seemed to be avoiding the claims about the Bidens.
"The president and his family have come under extreme scrutiny since his time in office," she said. "Now these allegations about Hunter Biden and it seems the mainstream media is moving away from it and glossing over it as quickly as they can."
