Opinion| Mark Sidney| What a coincidence this is! I’m sure this was just a random robbery, right?
One of the most important journalists of our time, John Solomon, has been one of the only mainstream journalists willing to look into, and expose, the DS, Democrats and the allegations of corruption that surround them.
Equipped with world class sources, Solomon has been at the forefront of breaking news ranging from Spygate to Ukrainian/American corruption.
It is being reported that John left his car parked near the White House the night preceding the launch of the Senate’s impeachment trial of President Trump.
Apparently a ‘thief’ broke into the newsman’s car and stole his laptop. A laptop which is said to have contained sensitive information, reportedly damning to Joe Biden and his activities in Ukraine.
The Gateway Pundit reported
‘The break-in, which happened across from the White House’s Eisenhower Executive Office Building, was described as a “professional job” and authorities believe the individual(s) used a sophisticated electronic jamming device to open the car’s lock.
“It’s a pretty professional job,” John Solomon told RCI of the break-in, “but it’s probably just a coincidence.”
“It was probably just a street criminal searching for pass codes,” he added. “Or it could be someone searching for my Ukraine stuff, we don’t know at this point.”
It appears to be a targeted political hit because Solomon said nothing else was taken from his car, including cash.’
Solomon says that he does not know what the motivation of the break in was, but considering the fact that the money in the car was still there, I’m going to go out on a limb and say that this was likely an pre-emptive attack trying to stop him from publishing the information he was in possession of.
Paul Sperry of Real Clear Investigations reported:
On the night before the Senate impeachment trial began, someone broke into veteran Washington investigative journalist John Solomon’s car parked near the White House and stole his laptop, according to a D.C. Metropolitan Police Department report obtained by RealClearInvestigations.
The computer contained notes on Ukraine and former Vice President Joe Biden and other sensitive information, Solomon, 52, said in an interview. He said he was preparing to launch a new podcast and news site at the time.
Though the laptop has since been recovered, the investigation is still open. “The case has been assigned a detective and is under investigation,” MPD spokesman Sean Hickman told RCI.
The Secret Service is also involved in the matter, which appears suspicious. Break-ins are rare in the high-security area where the crime occurred, just outside the White House perimeter, and a sophisticated device appears to have been used to get into the vehicle.
The computer and bag, which also contained his U.S. Capitol press security badge, were discovered the next day nearly a block away from where his car had been parked. The contents of the bag had been dumped out on a picnic bench near the FDIC building. The location had no security cameras, so there is no known video surveillance footage that can be reviewed. Authorities described it as one of the few “dark spots” in the area.
Solomon, an award-winning investigative reporter was reportedly targeted by megalomaniacal, serial liar, Democrat Rep. Adam Schiff, apparently because of John’s bombshell reporting on the Biden crime family & Ukraine.
It has been widely rumored that back in December, Schiff (likely illegally) ‘obtained John Solomon’s phone records and published his call history in a report.’ according to the Gateway Pundit.
TGWP went on: ‘Schiff smeared Solomon as a reporter who published “conspiracy theories” to “push false narratives” about Ukraine’s interference in the 2016 election to help Hillary Clinton.
John Solomon said he is working with computer forensics to see whether his hard drive was scanned by the thief.’

My guess is that this all leads back to those bad actors who are under the gun for their illicit deals in Ukraine. It takes a certain tolerance for risk (or knowledge that if you get caught, you will be let go) to undertake such a bold heist.
Hopefully we will eventually learn the real story of what happened to the laptop in question. I doubt that Solomon would keep his only set of the documents in a car unattended. I predict this will only embolden Solomon and back fire, BIGLY on those involved in the theft.
Look for more bombs to come from the prolific journalist …soon.
