America’s chattering class is almost unanimous: former vice president Joe Biden won the final presidential election debate, knocking out President Donald Trump’s chance of a second term.
The expected October surprise came when Trump’s lawyer, former New York mayor Rudy Guiliani, gave friendly journalists a laptop he said belonged to Biden’s son Hunter. It contained emails suggesting Hunter offered a Ukraine business associate a meeting with his father while he was vice president, and may have tried to set aside money for his father in one of his foreign deals. Guiliani’s refusal to show the laptop to mainstream journalists fueled their decision to keep the allegations at arm’s length.
But there is one last shot for Trump that may not be visible till it’s too late.
