You have to remember there is no "smoking gun" in real law, cases are built on an amalgamation of pieces of evidence until they gain enough strength to be considered true, even if some of those pieces are circumstantial or otherwise weak.

For example we have the case that Hunter is innocent, in which case all we have to believe is true is that he was hired for millions by a foreign company in which he doesn't speak the language and has no knowledge of the sector, and that Russian agents injected fake emails onto a hard drive and sent them to a computer shop where more foreign agents "discovered" these emails and used them as a weapon.

We have another case where the emails are simply real and Hunter was employed so that company could gain access to his father, access that proved incredibly useful.

Looking at it like that, the former is far more likely so Hunter must be innocent. Even Washington Post says so.
