In electoral politics, there are a few distinct strategies when it comes to the “October Surprise” tactic.
First and foremost, there’s the bombshell approach, in which a major, mind-bending revelation is dropped at the doorstop of our great nation just days before the bulk of the electorate is set to cast their ballot. This would be something like a sexual assault allegation, or a compromising photograph. It may even be some secretly-recorded audio meant to cast a particular candidate in a poor light.
But then there’s the spray and pray method of electoral sabotage, in which operatives from one side of the aisle or the other release damning disclosures in rapid fire, often before anyone has time to vet or come to grips with the information at hand before the next headlines comes screaming into view. This is what our nation is currently experiencing, as a laptop alleged to have belonged to Hunter Biden continues to make waves around the nation.
There are still doubts as to the authenticity of every piece of information that comes from this purported PC, but that hasn’t stopped members of the mainstream media from disseminating that information.
But there are other emails now making the rounds as well, (as if the Hunter Biden laptop confusion wasn’t enough), and they purport to show that the Biden family business is well intertwined with the Biden political circle.
A list of “key domestic contacts” for a joint venture involving Jim and Hunter Biden and now-bankrupt CEFC China Energy Co. included former Vice President Joe Biden’s current running mate Sen. Kamala Harris, among other prominent Democrats, Fox News has learned.
An email exclusively obtained by Fox News, with the subject line “Phase one domestic contacts/ projects” and dated May 15, 2017, Biden’s brother, Jim Biden, shared a list of “key domestic contacts for phase one target projects.”
The email is unrelated to the laptop or hard drive purportedly belonging to Hunter Biden, the former vice president’s son.
The list, included Harris, D-Calif.; Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y.; Sen. Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn.; Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif.; Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y.; New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo; New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio; former Virginia Gov. Terry McCauliffe, among others.
As of this writing, Senator Harris has yet to respond to inquiries regarding the email in question.
