A light, first frost came early to the Berkshires this year, prompting home gardeners to cover and protect more delicate crops for the night. I remember thinking, with a smile, as I made my way down to the garden the following morning, that a bird flying high over the still-quiet neighborhoods and town-outskirts at dawn, looking down, would have puzzled at the strange sight: an odd array of so many sheets, blankets, and tarps spread out like a scattered, mismatched patchwork-quilt of sorts, in all the backyards below! I was happy to see that the tomatoes and lettuces had survived alongside the beans and chard, beneath the sheets. But it was time to harvest most of what was left—except for the winter squash. The hearty fruit could survive a lighter…
Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden avoided questions during Thursday’s town hall on emails that allegedly were sent to and from his son while his father held the second highest office in America.
Biden appeared for 90 minutes in Philadelphia and answered questions from audience members, including one of his former speechwriters, and ABC News host George Stephanopoulos, the ex-aide to Democratic President Bill Clinton.
None of the people who queried Biden brought up the Hunter Biden, 50, material.
Joe Biden, 77, was appearing for the first time since the New York Post published emails and court documents from a computer that also contained nearly 25,000 photographs, many of private moments in the life of his son.
The person who dropped it off never returned and didn’t respond when the owner attempted to contact him.
The owner later sent the material to the FBI, which has said it cannot confirm or deny the existence of an investigation. House Republicans are pressing the bureau to reveal whether it possessed the laptop during the impeachment saga.
Rudy Giuliani, the former New York City mayor and current lawyer for President Donald Trump, told The Epoch Times that he took steps to verify the material before handing it over to the Post. He declined to provide a copy to The Epoch Times.
Joe Biden’s campaign challenged some aspects of the reporting from the data, including an alleged meeting in 2015 between Joe Biden and聽Vadym Pozharskyi, an adviser to the board of Burisma, the Ukrainian gas company that hired Hunter Biden a year prior.
“We have reviewed Joe Biden鈥檚 official schedules from the time and no meeting, as alleged by the New York Post, ever took place,” the campaign said.
Joe Biden did hold meetings outside his official schedule while in office.
Readers should read the reporting and judge for themselves, a Post editor told The Epoch Times.
At the end of Thursday’s town hall,聽Stephanopoulos thanked the audience for their “really terrific questions,” adding that they “did a service to our democracy tonight.”
Tim Murtaugh, a Trump campaign spokesman, said after the event that it was “pretty astounding” that Biden was never asked about his son’s alleged emails.
“Journalism is dead,” he said.
