President Trump has compared the contents of Hunter Biden’s laptop to that of Anthony Weiner’s computer whose laptop ended up becoming an issue for Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign in the weeks before the 2016 election.
On Monday, during a campaign rally in Prescott, Arizona, Trump described the son of Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden, Hunter, as having a ‘laptop from hell’.
Emails on the hard drive purportedly show Joe Biden was involved in deals made overseas by his son.
Trump went on to describe his competitor in the upcoming election as ‘corrupt’.

‘So a giant trove of emails show Hunter Biden making deals, setting up deals with his father Joe,’ Trump said at one point. The alleged emails included one that alluded to a meeting between Joe Biden and Vadym Pozharsky an adviser for the Ukrainian gas company Burisma,
‘Joe Biden is always and has been a corrupt politician, and as far as I’m concerned the Biden family is a criminal enterprise,’ Trump said.
‘If you read this laptop, I tell you what, this is called the laptop from hell. The only laptop that was almost as good, maybe worse, was the laptop of Anthony Weiner. Remember that? Ding-ding-ding-ding. He got hacked too.’
‘[Weiner] was sending messages to very, very young women — girls, girls, excuse me, girls. He was sending messages, a lot of them, and he ‘got hacked’, ‘ Trump said.
‘You know, I’ve never known a person that said he got hacked, that got hacked.’
The FBI seized Weiner’s laptop just before the 2016 election over allegations of inappropriate relationships with a 15-year-old girl.

The FBI Director at the time, James Comey, announced just 11 days before the election that he was to reopen an investigation of Clinton’s storage of classified information on a private email server that involved a laptop.
Investigators found 650,000 emails on a laptop that they believe was used by Weiner and his wife Huma Abedin that could have sent messages to or from Hillary Clinton’s private email server.
Comey also sent a memo to staffers explaining his decision, noting the bureau would not ordinarily inform Congress about its ongoing investigations, but said he felt he needed to do so amid the looming election.
‘Of course we don’t ordinarily tell Congress about ongoing investigations, but here I feel an obligation to do so given that I testified repeatedly in recent months that our investigation was completed,’ Comey wrote in the memo.
‘I also think it would be misleading to the American people were we not to supplement the record.’

‘At the same time, however, given that we do not know the significance of this newly discovered collection of emails, I don’t want to create a misleading impression, he wrote.
‘In trying to strike that balance, in a brief letter, and in the middle of an election season, there is significant risk of being misunderstood, but I wanted you to hear directly from me about it.’
Weiner admitted to sexting with a 15-year-old girl, following a DailyMail.com investigation.
For months, Weiner and the minor exchanged sexually graphic text messages, spoke over several social media platforms and he sent her photographs of himself in various states of undress, sometimes posing with his son.
After DailyMail.com exposed Weiner, he admitted to knowing that the victim, from North Carolina, was underage at the time of their exchanges.
Just before the 2016 election it was revealed there were thousands of emails that then-candidate Hillary Clinton had send to Anthony Weiner’s wife, Hume Abedin
Meanwhile, Trump has been having a field day over a New York Post report that is supposed to be proof that Joe Biden was in on his son Hunter’s foreign business deals while he was serving as President Barack Obama’s vice president.
The emails were allegedly found on a laptop left at a shop with a copy of the harddrive given to Trump’s personal lawyer, Rudy Giuliani.
Federal authorities are now investigating whether the emails were connected to a foreign intelligence operation in a bid to sway the election.
‘So a giant trove of emails show Hunter Biden making deals, setting up deals with his father Joe,’ Trump said at one point.
‘Joe’s getting a piece of everything,’ Trump, at another moment, alleged.
The alleged emails included one that alluded to a meeting between Joe Biden and Vadym Pozharsky an adviser for the Ukrainian gas company Burisma, where Hunter Biden served on the board.
However, the Biden campaign says the meeting did not occur.

During Monday’s rally, Trump said Monday that he specifically stopped his own children from being involved with foreign projects that could might be seen a corrupt.
‘Can you imagine if Don Jr. had the problems of ‘Where’s Hunter?’ ‘ Trump asked rally-goers.
‘Don Jr., oh my poor boy — what that boy’s been through. What that guy’s been through. I don’t know, Ivanka is different, she sort of floats through life, it is pretty amazing, I’ll tell you. She is pretty amazing. And Eric has been great,’ Trump said.
‘But they went after my kids and I restrict them from doing things. I mean, can you imagine the money my kids could get? “Dad, let’s build a hotel in Saudi Arabia.” I restricted them, I said you can’t do anything.’
