On Tuesday, Fox News reported that the FBI has Hunter Biden’s laptop in their possession.
“FBI in possession of laptop containing Hunter Biden’s emails, and agree with Director of National Intelligence Ratcliffe’s assessment that emails were not part of Russian disinformation campaign,” Fox News reported.
Reporter Jake Gibson with Fox News took to Twitter to share the following news.
“ONE senior federal law enforcement official says: 1-The FBI and DOJ concur with DNI Ratcliffe’s assessment that Hunter Biden’s laptop and emails in question were not part of a Russian disinformation campaign. 2-The FBI DOES have possession of the Hunter Biden laptop in question,” Gibson said on Twitter.
The situation surrounding Hunter Biden’s laptop is continuing to pick up steam and Republicans are demanding answers.
During an interview with Fox News on Tuesday, President Donald Trump said that Attorney General William Barr needs to “act fast” and launch an investigation “before the election” into Hunter Biden.
“We’ve got to get the attorney general to act,” President Trump said. “He’s got to act, and he’s got to act fast, and he’s got to appoint somebody. This is major corruption, and we have to know about this before the election. The attorney general has to act.”
President Trump’s comments came right after 11 House Republicans pressured Barr to appoint a special prosecutor to investigate the damning information found on Hunter Biden’s laptop.
“One email, dated May 13, 2017, and obtained by Fox News, includes a discussion of ‘remuneration packages’ for six people in a business deal with a Chinese energy firm. The email appeared to identify Biden as ‘Chair/Vice Chair depending on agreement with CEFC,’ in an apparent reference to now-bankrupt CEFC China Energy Co,” Fox reported. “The email includes a note that ‘Hunter has some office expectations he will elaborate.’ A proposed equity split references ’20’ for ‘H’ and ’10 held by H for the big guy?’ with no further details.”
“This is the laptop from hell,” President Trump said while reacting to the bombshell Hunter Biden story. “Even if he didn’t get all of this money, you can’t go to China and have the son walk out with $1.5 billion. … You can’t go to Ukraine with $83,000 a month. … You can’t get $3.5 million from the mayor of Moscow’s wife.”
“And you didn’t have a job before your father was vice president,” he continued. “You can’t go and go with your father and every stop you make, you pick up $1 billion.”
The President continued: “The vice president got a kickback, and everybody knows it, and they’ve known it a long time.”
In their letter, the 11 Republicans explained why a special counsel must be appointed.
“These alleged revelations raise serious questions about former Vice President Joe Biden’s reported participation with his son’s business, dealings, specifically whether the former vice president (1) received foreign monies during his tenure in the Obama administration and (2) if former Vice President Biden allowed his son to peddle access to his father with foreign business entities,” the letter read.
“If these reports about former Vice President Joe Biden and his son, Hunter, are true, the former vice president fell far short of his responsibility to uphold his constitutional oath and betrayed the sacred trust of the American people,” it continues.
“We request that the Department of Justice immediately appoint an independent, unbiased special counsel to investigate the issues that we have raised — as well as any corresponding legal or ethical issues that might be uncovered from the former vice president’s 47 years in public office,” the letter added.
