POLITIFACT:

For well over a year, we’ve heard a lot about Hunter Biden’s abandoned laptop. Questions have swirled about its contents, whether it was really his and even whether it existed at all.

Now, after a cache of emails from the abandoned computer was verified by the New York Times and Washington Post, one claim suggests the FBI has lost the laptop.

But a close look shows that conclusion is an overreach based on a confrontational exchange in a March 29 House hearing. READ MORE


FACTCHECK:

President Donald Trump’s namesake charitable foundation agreed to cease operations in late 2018 as part of an agreement with New York’s attorney general, who alleged that the nonprofit organization was improperly leveraged to further Trump’s business and political interests. A November court order resolved the lawsuit, and Trump ultimately paid a total of $2 million in damages to eight charities, which also received equal portions of the foundation’s remaining $1.8 million.

While the Factcheck report states that it is "untrue" that the Trumps were disallowed from operating any charity in the State of New York, it rephrases the word 'disallowed' with a more comfortable phrase, like "dissolution under judicial supervision." 

Pretty words intended to redirect the facts do not cover up the actions, the same effect and result only puts it 'another way'. READ MORE 

Editorial Note: Forbes has not retracted their story, nor apologized for getting it wrong. Because they didn't get it wrong. It was true.

VOX.com: Excerpt - "But the emails were indeed being put out as part of an orchestrated campaign by Trump’s team to try to drive negative media coverage toward Joe Biden shortly before the election. And whatever the revelations about Hunter, claims from conservatives that the leaked emails proved Joe Biden acted corruptly in some way were false — they proved no such thing."
