"I tried to go to my auto". Said, 'Dad, Dad, please.
Correspondent Tracy Smith's interview with Hunter Biden will be broadcast on "CBS Sunday Morning" on Sunday at 9 a.m. ET on CBS and CBSN. "Why haven't you seen any stories from NPR about the NY Post's Hunter Biden story?" the publication wrote, before quoting managing editor Terence Samuels.
Smith pressed, "I know".
Biden said, "For real, I don't know".
"I thought, 'I need to figure out a way to tell him that I'm going to do something so that I can go take another hit, '" Biden says.

Biden said, "Of course, certainly". It could be that I was hacked. It could be that it was stolen from me.
The laptop, which was eventually dubbed the "laptop from hell" by the media, contained numerous photos apparently made by young Biden himself, as well as a trove of documents, which questioned claims by Joe Biden that he never used his former office of Vice-President to help his son in his foreign business dealings.
A senior federal law enforcement official told Fox News in October that the emails are "authentic", while officials at the FBI and the Justice Department agreed with then-Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe's comments that the laptop is "not part of a Russian disinformation campaign". Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey said at a March 25 congressional hearing that barring users from sharing the story was a "total mistake".
Hunter Biden, in turn, made a number of allegations about how his laptop might have ended up in the hands of the journalists, which ranged from regular theft to the good-old "Russia did it" explanation.
