In Brief: Another Blinken Lie. Under Oath?

Finding out that a politician has lied about something is pretty much a dog-bites-man story in Washington.

We’ve pretty extensively detailed the Biden Crime Family’s corruption, especially last week with new revelations. Political analyst Jazz Shaw highlights one particular revelation about Secretary of State Antony Blinken — that he lied to Congress.

We have already learned about his involvement in the creation of the fake letter signed by 51 intelligence officials saying that the Hunter Biden Laptop from Hell story was probably Russian disinformation. But now something else has emerged that may come back to bite him where the sun doesn’t shine and it dates back to his time serving as the Deputy Secretary of State under Barack Obama and then-Vice President Joe Biden. While providing testimony to Congress, Blinken said that he couldn’t contribute much to the story because he hadn’t been in contact with Hunter Biden, even by email. And it’s true that no emails between Hunter and Blinken’s official campaign email address or later his State Department address have turned up. But at least one of them has shown up on the laptop. And it curiously came from Blinken’s personal email account.

Blinken told Congress in 2020 that while he met with Hunter once, he didn’t remember discussing anything other than the death of Beau Biden. As Shaw notes, maybe that’s why Blinken was so eager to help portray the laptop as “Russian disinformation.” He continues:

Of course, the supposed fact-checkers at were quick to rush to Blinken’s defense. They wrote that there is “less to the accusation” than is being suggested. But they then go on in a lengthy analysis to confirm virtually every point that was brought up. They detail the interview that Blinken gave to Congress in December of 2020 as was required before he could be confirmed as Secretary of State. They point out that the interview included him saying “no” when he was asked if he had any other forms of communication with Hunter Biden, specifically including emails. They admit that lying to members of Congress on the record during such a meeting is a felony, even though he was not technically under oath. They do not deny that the emails are real, but they wave them away as consisting of “exchanges of pleasantries.”

The noble fact-checkers also make no mention of the fact that the emails were to and from Blinken’s private email account despite the fact that they involved a meeting that was to take place at his office at the State Department. Does this not raise any questions in their minds? Anyone who enters those offices is supposed to be recorded and any records of such meetings, no matter how “pleasant” or “trivial” are supposed to be kept.

Shaw concludes:

This entire matter stinks from the bottom to the top. And most of the media is once again playing defense for Team Biden and all of his inside allies.
