Tucker Carlson and Hunter Biden’s Surprising Friendship Revealed Through Emails on Hunter’s ‘Laptop from Hell’
Remember the laptop that appeared right before the 2020 election that contained shocking sexual images, drug usage, prostitution and conversations eluding to corruption committed by those in the highest office in the United States?
At the time it was alleged that this laptop belonged to Hunter Biden, which was denied and labeled ‘fake news’. Later (conveniently after the 2020 presidential elections) it was revealed, that yes, the laptop did indeed belong to Hunter Biden.
Turns out, those emails reveal an interesting and surprising friendship between Hunter Biden and Fox News host Tucker Carlson. The emails showed that Hunter and Carlson are so close in fact, that Hunter wrote a letter of recommendation for Carlson’s son, Buckley for his Georgetown University application.
Carlson happily thanked Hunter for the letter he wrote on November 12, 2014, writing,
‘Hunter! I can’t thank you enough for writing that letter to Georgetown on Buckley’s behalf. So nice of you. I know it’ll help. Hope you’re great and we can all get dinner soon,’
‘Hey buddy- I need Buckley’s CV if you have one handy- Thanks,’ Hunter replied.
‘Of course. Getting on a plane now but I’ll ask Susie to send it right away. Thanks again. It’s really nice of you to do this,’ Carlson wrote.
It seemed the friendship ended in 2015, but not before Carlson had intervened in a Daily Mail story exposing Hunter Biden’s use of the adult website, Ashley Madison, which had credit card details with Hunter’s name on it and an address he had been linked to.
Hunter wrote to Carlson to help squash the story, to which Carlson replied:
‘Just lost my s**t on the editor over there. He claims the London office forced him to do it. He’s a pig either way, and I told him so,’ he said.
‘This whole thing is disgusting and awful and it breaks my heart that you all have to go through it. I’m really sorry. Let me know if there’s anything [Carlson’s wife] Susie and I can do to help.’
Hunter wrote back: ‘I’m sorry for even calling you. I know I put you in a difficult position- and upon reflection as you’re [a] friend I should have never done that.
‘I was just so upset that they went to my house and confronted Finnegan. I’ve been in DE [Delaware] the last two months sleeping in my nephew’s bed, and it’s hard to even get up in the morning sometimes.
‘Eric [Schwerin, Hunter’s business partner] provided all the information on background that proves this was not me – not my IP address- not my credit card #, not my birthdate etc…but they still come anyway. I can take the hit- I’ll be fine, but the notion that under any circumstance whether ordered to by an editor or not that someone would confront my 16 year old daughter at my home is just wrong.’
‘Regardless, I should have never put you in this position- you have your own family all of whom I love, and your own business and defending me is not something a friend should ask a friend to do. Tell Susie we love her and miss you both very much.’
The problem is Tucker Carlson failed to disclose his once close relationship with Hunter, during his coverage of the laptop scandal during 2020, which he covered extensively. This has drawn comparisons to the now disgraced Chris Cuomo who has just been let go from his post at CNN.
A Fox News spokesperson, however, stated that Carlson “was transparent about his relationship with Hunter”.
Hunter and Carlson, along with Carlson’s wife, Susie, were involved in an outward bound group together – The Elements DC – which arranges nature trips for parents and their children.
Carlson also attended barbecues and events with the Presidents son and rubbed elbows with some of the most powerful and influential people in politics. Including Senators, Lobbyists and Ambassadors.
Although Tucker refused to comment on his son’s Georgetown admission letter, in a statement he stood by his comments about the Daily Mail’s reporting, stating that a, ‘Daily Mail reporter showed up at his house when he wasn’t home and informed one of his daughters that her dad was cheating on her mom. I don’t care if it’s Hunter Biden or not, that’s awful,’ he said.
‘I knew the Daily Mail’s Washington editor at the time, so I called and told him I thought he was a pig for doing that. That’s still my opinion.’
